Bury It 02:42
Let's bury the treasure, and then busy the map And then bury the shovel that we used to bury that Let's bury it, let's bury it Everything we found and everything we ever did Let's put it underground as though we never lived Let's bury it, let's bury it Can we start over please? We can rediscover fire We can explore foreign lands again, yeah Cover it with soil and flowers can grow Everything we did, no one has to know Let's bury it, let's bury it Can we start over please? We can rediscover fire We can explore foreign lands again, yeah I woke quickly from a dream O clarity, lucidity Thoughts like mirrors on a wall Wearing high heels, they looked so tall Before it ended, it all came crashing down again The rubble covered me Blankets returning to my bed Can we start over please? We can rediscover fire We can explore foreign lands again, yeah Everything we did and every mistake It brought us to the world we live in today So let's bury it, let's bury it

Look here at my youngest one A little fat and a little dumb She hates school and she hates her mom And I know she ticks like a time bomb I know what she wants to hear That life gets better every year But let me say this And I'll be clear Cuz this is gonna break your heart, darling Nothing works out for us And this life is such a tease Hey! I know that she's only 12 And she thinks that her life is hell Let me say this, and listen well It starts low and it all goes downhill She'll say that it isn't fair We want a life that's unique and rare But no one loves you And no one cares And no one ever will, baby Nothing works out for us And this life is such a tease Help my daughter She's in love You're the only one she trusts She reads beauty magazines She thinks she's an ugly one God she's growing up so fast She'll be dead before you know La la la-la la la laaa La la la-la la la laaa La la la-la la la laaa La la la-la la la la la I know what she wants to hear That life gets better every year But let me say this And I'll be clear Cuz this is gonna break your heart, darling Nothing works out for us And this life is such a tease Help my daughter She's in love You're the only one she trusts She reads beauty magazines She thinks she's an ugly one God she's growing up so fast She'll be dead before you know

I'll take the check please Cuz this food's been cold for days It's showing signs of decay It's unappealing Oh the heart's a bag That can fit so many things Yeah but when it's full It breaks easy So who needs it Because things are better now that you're away I can drown in shallow pools of bad mistakes So let's lay down the carcass And let the vultures have their way I'm sorry for the bomb Yeah but something had to give And I can't live there any longer I am too young to enlist In the armies of the plain And if I don't die I might get stronger And live longer Because things are better now that you're away I can drown in shallow pools of bad mistakes So let's lay down the carcass And let the vultures have their way It was a waste of time We looked better when Our arms weren't bound and tied [Guitar solo!!!!!!!] Yeah the heart's a bag That can fit so many things Yeah but when it's full It breaks easy So who needs it Because things are better now that you're away I can drown in shallow pools of bad mistakes So let's lay down the carcass And let the vultures have their way

Your TV 03:39
Something's always on my mind It's something I can never find I am waiting for the day to come When everything is overrun By older men in nice suits And everything's a million miles Nobody ever smiles They are waiting for the day to arrive When they will finally feel alive In all the nice things they bought Oh Whoa whoa Well open your eyes And don't look so surprised It's only me, your TV I apologize You thought you knew But you didn't have a clue Look over here, look over there We know what's good for you Everybody get in line Wait your turn and you'll be fine We just gotta learn to agree That nothing in life is free Oh Whoa whoa Well how can you say You'll always get your way Don't you know you're on your own You can't go home and you can't stay So fall to the floor You left it at the door Your disguise, your only prize Who are you anymore? You're trying hard to find the truth But your mother left you with nothing else to do Oh, whoa whoa Well open your eyes And don't look so surprise It's only me, your TV I apologize You thought you knew But you didn't have a clue Look over here, look over there We know what's good for you Well there are exceptions to the rules But your mother left you with nothing else to do And something's always on my mind It's something I can never find I am waiting for the day to come When everything is overrun By older men in nice suits

Sitting alone in my bed How many good thoughts will run through my head? And watching the clock move its hands Wondering if you'd even understand That I just want to sleep tonight But I feel like I'd be wasting time Things move unbearably fast I blink my eyes and ten seconds pass Alone in here on the floor My god I it seems like I've been here before Well I just want to sleep tonight But I feel like I'd be wasting time Sitting alone in my dream I start to wonder, what does it mean? Sitting alone in my dream I start to wonder, what does it mean? Sitting alone in my dream I start to wonder, what does it mean? Sitting alone in my bed How many good thoughts will run through my head? And watching the clock move its hands Wondering if you'd even understand That I just want to sleep tonight But I feel like I'd be wasting time Oh I just want to sleep tonight But I feel like I'd be wasting time

Big Ideas 05:00
Big dreams, big dreams, how they came Kicked down the door and rushed the stage, rushed the stage And big ideas, big ideas, how they grew How we smiled when we thought of what we knew I asked them to stop by and say hello But they had moved With no change of address form Big dreams, big dreams, please come home It's been so long waiting by the telephone Big ideas, big ideas, where are you? Sense of wonder we once clung to I asked them to stop by and say hello But they had moved With no change of address form I asked them to stop by and say hello But they had moved With no change of address form And when went, it's like they left the TV on Fading images to mask the empty song And when went, it's like they left the TV on Fading images to mask the empty song Big dreams, big dreams, how they came Kicked down the door and rushed the stage, rushed the stage Big ideas, big ideas, where are you? Sense of wonder we once clung to

Rainfall 03:27
You walked in And I lost my train of thought again The room got dull But god you're beautiful And we'd talked before But suddenly the light was pure And everything was like a silent movie score So let's sit down and watch as rainfall fills the lake It's early in the day When the rain falls down it reminds us how the Earth was made The way it is today So hand in hand let's scale down fire escapes You're beautiful It's more than I can calculate When you're in reach it's like I lose the power of speech And I can't recall the last time I was so enthralled It's a rare event And that's a genuine compliment So let's sit down and watch as rainfall fills the lake It's early in the day When the rain falls down it reminds us how the Earth was made The way it is today So hand in hand let's scale down fire escapes I'm riding in the back of a sentimental car Driving on past fields unseen Rise against the arrows of communication I'm on fire with red light and rough cement You walked in And I lost my train of thought again You're like a precious stone You're a thing I'd like to hold Oh but what's the rush I'm glad we haven't talked that much The nicest part is still ahead of us So let's sit down and watch as rainfall fills the lake It's early in the day When the rain falls down it reminds us how the Earth was made The way it is today So hand in hand let's scale down fire escapes

Bright thing that you are An empty beach's light Thick blue shapes obscured In the waters of the night You have nothing to fear When I am in your sight You're never all alone You're never all alone You're never all alone I'm always at your side You're never all alone You're never all alone You're never all alone I'm always at your side Mountains of the green Roaming pastures and fields Marking territories Where broken fences yield Lying on our sides Facing empty caves Folding paper cranes And wishing them away I'm never all alone I'm never all alone I'm never all alone You're always at my side I'm never all alone I'm never all alone I'm never all alone You're always at my side

Koi 04:04
Little toothless mouths stick out Like writhing arrhythmatic hearts As they anticipate What I can't provide today Yellow yolk White porcelain Orange Arizona desert sun Marching in army lines Then dispersing on a whim And my eye trains on the little one Don't let them bring you down You are just as good as anyone Don't let them tear you down Your mind and heart seem small to us But your strength is undeniable You could climb a mountain top If you had but legs to walk on And my eye trains on the little one Don't let them bring you down You are just as good as anyone Don't let them tear you down Brave little one Put your heart into it, son Small though you are You can travel very far Little toothless mouths stick out Like writhing arrhythmatic hearts As they anticipate What I can't provide today And my eye trains on the little one Don't let them bring you down You are just as good as anyone Don't let them tear you down Brave little one Put your heart into it, son Small though you are You can travel very far

Darlin' 03:48
Why do I love you so? You're no good for me You're no good for anything Oh why do I love you so? You're bad for me You're bad for everything Tell me darlin' Why? Where were you? When I fell, I fell hard Why? Where were you? When I need you in my arms Why do we run around? What's the hurry? We're only seventeen Oh why do we talk so much? There's a lifetime ahead of us yet For boring conversation Why? Where were you? When I fell, I fell hard Why? Where were you? Needed you in my arms In my arms Why do I love you so? You're no good for me You're no good for anything Oh why do you love me so? I'm bad for you I'm bad for everything Tell me darlin' Why? Where were you? When I fell, I fell hard Why? Where were you? I needed you in my arms In my arms In my arms In my arms
