Track Name: Crickets in the Cold
Warm your hands and clear your throat
Hear the healing heat you hold
See the summer in the snow
Be a cricket in the cold

Track Name: Heavy Mouth
This tongue teems with toxins
So instead kiss this chord
Poison conversation
A new key is the cure

These lips of lead
Seep into all I've said
Heavy Head
My every ounce
Seems to be mispronounced
Heavy Mouth

Wrong notes are forgiving
They're quick to resolve
Wrong words shake the orbit
Where small planets revolve

Track Name: Godsun
Funny how the sun may blind you
But without him you can't see
Funny how the sunburn bites you
But without him frost will bear his teeth
Funny how the sun steals water
But without him you can't eat

Track Name: Keeps
Wake up early, catch the sunrise, stick him in a jar
Punch out air-holes, feed him crickets collected from the cold
Keep him healthy
He'll keep you happy
As selfish as it seems
Climb the mountain
Near the summit, tell the sun your dreams

Keep him on hand
On your night stand
Dimmed down with a sheet
Groom and bathe him
Glass-house-break him
Keep him on your leash

Keep him happy
He'll keep you healthy
As selfless as it seems
Climb the mountain
Near the summit, tell the sun your dreams

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the sun is mine to keep
Keeps

Climb the mountain
Near the summit
Set the captive free

Track Name: Canned 4get U
I don't need you but I will some day
Got to find how to stow you away
Perfect body, perfect soul and face
Awful timing, miserable place
Sweaty palms can't keep you in my hands
Process you and seal you up in cans
Packaged goods no expiration date
Keep love on the shelf because I

Track Name: Submarines
Fighter jets came crashing down
Underwater dog fight
In the end they shared the crown
In the end nobody died
In the end nobody drowned
Those that did swam back to life
The day the submarines took to the sky

No, no, no! That's not how it's done
Where did you learn to play that way?
Grandpa knows it, he was there
Maybe you'll learn someday
Maybe just for now it's fine
Maybe just for fun this time
The day the submarines took to the sky

All these years, have I been wrong?
Children play war.
Was it a game all along?
I see them now
Through gun-smoke clouds
Had they bounced back?
The ones that I shot down?

Track Name: Apeology
I'm confused by all the things you say and do
When you're going outside to take the computer with you
And then proceed with elaboration on the view
As if you have to catch up with everybody that you knew
Who cares about you and all the things you said you'd do
Step aside from yourself and let the peaceful interview
So that you can find a little biddy piece of mind
Inside this daily grind you've gotta find a way to unwind

Apeology x 4

You're bemused by all the things I said I'd do
Cause when I'm going outside I take the computer from you
And then concede with collaboration though askew
Now I gotta catch up for all the time you made me lose (Alright!)
It holds true that irresponsible views are to blame
For all the messes of your personal moods
So then you will find you must be kind rewind the signs
And retrograde you're on your way back into a simpler mind (Ok.)

Apeology x 4

I'm confused by all the things you say and do
When you're going outside to take the computer with you
And then proceed with elaboration on the view
As if you have to catch up with everybody that you knew
Who cares
Track Name: Naked Hide
What we wear when we're naked
What we say when we're listening
What we see when we're not seeking
What we have when we let go

Set in motion sitting still
Willingly abandon will
Chasing inner child outside
In time
To see the naked hide

Learn of house-coats in the heat
Learn of loss from what we keep
Scaring inner skin outside
In time
To see the naked hide

Track Name: Abigail (It's Not My Fault That You Cried)
Baby, you're my dreamboat...
Sailin' away.

It's not my fault that you cried, Abigail.
It's not my fault that you cried, Abigail.
It's just so cold in my heart
And this is no, no way to start... in my heart.

It's not my fault that you cried, Abigail.
It's not my fault that you cried, Abigail.
It's just so cold.
It's so cold.
In my heart.

It's not my fault that you cried, Abigail x 4 (continues)

Abigail

Don'tcha know it's not my fault, baby?

Abigail

Your emotions have nothing to do with me,
and don't you know you made a fool of me?

Creature Chick

Perhaps you're being affected seasonally.

Abigail

And don'tcha know, this season's gone seed to tree.

Creature Chick

Abigail, Creature Chick (continues to fade)
