Track Name: Figures
remember what you always told me
you think that pavement is a way to get your knees skinned
you sorry thing there's always a way to get your knees skinned

the unregistered burns of unmittened hands
the slow thaw, role call, patterned beats and birds
the door turns in, with spokes on a drum
and the chalk on the sidewalk hurriedly sung

i guess i always wanted to believe that there could be a mass appeal to my fictional math

and when i finally fell asleep late last night
i dreamt of all the parties that we crashed in '09
i saw you there, and i was there too
and everyone we knew
but then i woke up and realized it wasn't true
Track Name: Settle Down
he's a wrecking ball
she's a daisy chain
yeah, she'll wreck them all
and leave his house to blame

things get better all the time
things get worse and then they're fine
things get better all the time

he's a grizzly bear
make his inlaws proud
dreams of whiter clouds
and a cool, dark place to lay down

tell him you want his empire
tell him you want his kid
tell him you already did

and settle down

tell him you want his legacy
tell him you want his kid
tell him you already did

ba da da da da da da da da da
Track Name: Cut Rock Lake
everybody's swimming in the cut rock lake
yeah, rigel and orion came for old times sake
well, the girls are on the shore and we watch them shake
in the sun

well, there's a party in the woods at the end of our street
yeah, donna gave us twenty and suburban keys
tell ashley that i want her sitting next to me
we are young

and it's all about the girl
it's all about the girl
it's all about the girl

once in awhile we get lost for awhile
once in awhile we get lost for awhile
once in awhile we get lost for awhile

we go left
we go right
we stay up
all night
Track Name: Everyone Knows
everyone knows i'm in love with you
so tuck me in tight and i'll see you soon
don't it feel right to meet me under the moon light?

you're my one and only, you're my only one
all the stars in the sky say i'm the lonely one
you attract all the light, you look good in the sunshine

and everyone thinks they know
everyone thinks they know about love

well i fell for you hard, did you know i fell?
your love is so bright i feel overwhelmed
don't it feel right to meet me under the elm trees?

all this falling apart now is coming together
buried deep in my heart you helped me weather the weather
and don't it feel right to brave the waves of these seas with me?

and everyone knows
everyone knows
everyone knows what i'd be without you
Track Name: No Sun on a Sunday
the kids are phoning it in
pressing repeat on the stereo
standing where the sidewalk ends
wakeless water, the sunset is a burial

it's summer here all winter long
so sick of the sun (so sick of the sun)
well, maybe some day we'll spend the day our way
with no sun on a sunday

no sun on a sunday

the kids are breaking it up
then acting like it's on again
so this is how it never ends
with glass cracks in the abdomen of all our friends

so sick of the summer
Track Name: Break Their Backs
it seems lately
certainly means maybe
and we're mourning all in black
so c'mon ladies
grab your fellas
and make them dance 'til you break their backs

baby save me this dance

well, the sun is high
and i think that so am i
put the needle in the groove
c'mon sugar
shake what God gave ya
life's too short not to move

things are better when they're harder to do
and nothing could be so hard as to stay with you

you're cold gold
Track Name: Bury Our Heads
see you coming up those stairs
pushing daisies in your hair
you will, kill me, with one of your smiles

you know what you do to me
let's hide out in the cemetery
and let's stay, away, just for awhile

let's go bury our heads
somewhere very far from home
let's just tell them we're dead
and maybe they'll leave us all alone

i know you're in love with me
let's make out in the cemetery
are you, afraid to, when it goes dark?

i promise to make you smile today
i promise to make you smile today

i'll make you happy baby
you'll never think to leave me
Track Name: Never Do
i've been telling you
get out of here
go on and go
i've been telling you
get out of Dodge
but you won't listen
you never listen, do you?
no, you never do

i've been keeping all
all your receipts
in a safe place
i've been keeping all
the gifts you gave to me
just in case you want them back
do you want them back, do you?
no, you never do

i don't have to like it for you to be right
and i don't have to agree for you to be right
well, you're right

you been telling me
come back my dear
you been telling me
come back right here
but i won't listen
i never listen to you
no, i never do
Track Name: Okay Alright
who are you to right wrongs?
are you not a villain?
who am i to write songs?
as if i had something new to say

everything's good
everything's fine
everything should
turn out alright
alright?

you think because i will not talk to you
that it means you're not forgiven
on the contrary, baby
that is how i forgave

it's okay
it's alright
everything will turn out just fine
Track Name: Only Half Gone
bring bring
it's bringing me down
i don't like when my feet touch the ground

you know
i know
you know
i know
the coast explodes
and starts to glow

ooo the summer
is only half gone

ring ring
you're breaking my heart
you only call when your car doesn't start

you know
i know
you know
i know
we're burning light
it's time to go

i want to make you mine
i want to make you mine
but i ain't got the time
