Track Name: a secret switch! press it?
stand still staring at treetops flailing
as soft drops drift down the sloped top
of a tent with broken bones
braced with branches

moonlight shines right through
as sleep fails to find us
I can't think of a better way
to end this summer

if it only drifts when we perceive it
then the aching hands rest on your shoulders

so sit still and soak it in

as the day awakens
we sit and take in
this landscape we've laid in all night

late in the morning
rainclouds are forming
my last summer is over
I'm another year older


if it only drifts when we perceive it
then the aching hands rest on your shoulders

so sit still and soak it in
Track Name: little ghosts whispering whiskey
rooftops have a way of reassuring me
that everything will be alright

cast in the soft light of a city
I've known for quite some time now
I'll be just fine now

and I thought I knew it then
but I know I know it now

I'll always remember

the endless days into the hazy nights
where we'd sit on the porch
of the house on the corner

of lexington and sibley
drinking whiskey
as little ghosts floating through the night

and I thought I knew it then
but I know I know it now

I'll always remember
Track Name: late night car rides home
inaudible glitch
Track Name: someone leak the new running shoes
the unblemished surface
assures you no one's wandered
quite this far

so you sink in
and after thinking
you implore yourself to speak for once

eternity stills
eternity stumbles

I still stumble
over words I cannot say

it just takes time to give
meaning to the sound
time to make it real

but if you don't fuck up
what are you anyway?

eternity stills
eternity stumbles

I still stumble
over words I cannot say
Track Name: the sound of a sitar slowing
and in a sharp hesitant breath
time falters and flattens

each word deliberate
each word between:
coiled brittle tense and tattered

between the silence
there's too much to say

it appears that even my words
are frightened of the day

suddenly you look up to find
yourself somewhere new

watching your coffee
release its heat into the room

between the silence
there's too much to say

it appears that even my words
are frightened of the day
