Track Name: Step Out
Just stepping out
Just letting it all fall around you
Breaking it down
Busting the binds you been tied down to
Calling your own name
Responding to your own voice
Making good with the sick brain
Taking pains to identify the right choice
Take your dress off, it's your god damn house
Make a mess of it all
Take your hair down,
Wash your hands, your feet, your face now
I know what you care about, I know
Guarding the goodness
Reflecting the light
Being a witness to your crazy
Moving bravely through the night
Allowing the demons
Sitting calm beside what’s mean
Articulated seasons
Bring us a meter for our own shortcomings
Track Name: Mean Pack
Without people, we are a person
Silent as the starfish
And instant as the rain
But with people, we are a family
Vibrant as the ocean
And infinite as the cosmos
Lots of people.
All around you.
It’s important.
They surround you.
Somebody to tell you, "You are right."
Somebody to tell you, "You are brave."
Somebody to tell you, "You are good."
And something to be good for.
Without people, we are an animal
Skittish as the coyote and lonely as the loon
But with people, we’re a mean pack
Purposed as a pod of whales
And aware as the beehive.
We all need eachother.
To love and bathe and feed eachother.
To prod and to besiege eachother.
Lots of people. All around you.
It’s important. They surround you.
Somebody to tell you, "You are wrong."
Somebody to tell you, "You are mean."
Somebody to tell you, "You are bad."
And something to be bad for.
Without people we are a person
Clean as the snow
And gone with the wind
But with people, we are everybody
Expansive as the skyline
And here like we are here like we are here…
Track Name: Pretty On The West Coast
I think that you’re so cool
I think you were right
Just doing what you do
And taking your time
I know that we are good
I know we’ll be fine
We did everything we could
To not make up our minds
Ain’t it fun to be pretty on the west coast?
Ain’t it a good time to be free in a the land that the sun loves most?
I know that we are kings
I swear we’ll be big
Just living out our dreams
Couldn’t pay us to quit
And I know we are good
I know we’ll be fine
Doing everything we could
And taking our time
Track Name: Sea of Xs
I swim through a sea of ex boyfriends
Their fins scrape at the surface
So I dive to the deep as a porpoise
They bite me as the wind
I swim through a sea of ex boyfriends
Their limbs flail at the bottom
So I bite at their wrists as a walrus,
My tusks much more than you called em
And I never would have went away for that long that time.
And I never would have written you that love song you fucking guy
I don’t owe you anything at all.
I fight through a storm of old friendships
Their sounds make me a liar
Cuz I fail and I flake when I end it
Heartbreak sets to a fire
I fight through a storm of old friendships
My lightning is known to devour
Not all wounds that are opened are mended
I face first rather than cower
And I never would have walked you home that late that night
And I never would have told you that I had such a great fucking time
I don’t owe you anything at all
Track Name: Go Outside
Go outside
The daytime is our time, is our time
Go outside
The sunlight is our light, is our light
I know you been wronged
I know you been let down again
I know you been lost
I know you been spun the bad way around again
Lets go to the beach
Let the dunes do to you what the wind compels them to
Lets go to the ocean
Let the broad breaks agitate your sleeping fire inside
Why mustn’t we be allowed to slump down raggedy?
Sometimes we've been beat
Even our low limbs so stripped of fruit we had saved last to eat
Go outside
The nighttime is our time, is our time
Go outside
The moonlight is our light, is our light
I know its been rough
I know you been calling all your favors in and pulling at your demons again
I know you been rallying
I know it's been challenging
Lets go to the beach
Let the dunes do to you what the wind compels them to
Lets go to the ocean
Let the broad breaks agitate your sleeping fire inside
Why mustn’t we be allowed to slump down raggedy?
Sometimes we've been beat
Even our low limbs so stripped of fruit we had saved last to eat
Calm your nerves
You are the prize piece of the universe. Shake it off girl and just go outside
Darling you will be returned.
Track Name: Always My Fault
All of our bad memories
They could use a scouring
We could be scraped clean
If we weren’t so cowardly
I am skin on sandstone
I am gravel in a washtub
I am noises in the morning
I am sun in your eye.
And it’s always my fault
Cause I’m so needy
It’s always my fault
That you wont see me
All of our lost moments spent
Just sucking heat right off the wind
So caught up inside our heads
No I don’t wanna talk about it
I am skin on sandstone
I am gravel in a washtub
I am noises in the morning
I am sun in your eye
I am the smell of peaches
Gone off in the sunroom
In the bowl you put ‘em in
To let ‘em go ripe
Track Name: Each Day
Each day we rise raised on the hourly wage.
We are, yolk-up, soaked up bout to bust all over the plate
It’s your last chance
It’s a make or break
Get your fill while you can, there’s no take away
And when you’re called to the stands, what will you say?
You were “fighting the good fight”
This time, this game.
Each day we come late
Made slack by the pay that keeps us at bay
We are grounded in our unfounded evidence, its prevalent,
Whose word and at what expense?
It’s your last chance
It’s a make or break
Get your fill while you can, there’s no take away
And when you’re called to the stands, what will you say?
You were “fighting the good fight”
This time, this game.
Every night, I’m awake
Squinting at the light
Setting my braid
I am a baby, bellied up daisy
Driving the boys right crazy
Every night, I am stayed,
Bound by that which dissuades the brave
I am a darling, spitting and snarling, Sharpen my teeth, initiate the sparring
Track Name: Brimming
And what good does it do?
To get caught chompin on the bit
Adrift in solitude
And anger from not getting all of it
I am gnash my teeth
I am pound my first
Against how I can’t breath
Stuck inside this hot hot hot fit
I’m brimming
I’m set to burst
Just skimming, slitting top layers first Wicked as a storm
Winded as the sail
Continuously burn
I am the siren wail
Track Name: I Love CA
Along the highway
Cruising with the gang again
We on another getaway
We are best friends
And you are better than you think
Wish you could see what I can see
You are better than you think
Wish you could see what I can see
And the boys drove up from
Los Angeles that weekend
Hugging The 1 like a bible
And smoking all the while
The girls descended down from the clouds of San Francisco
Window draping limbs for better tracing pelicans
I love California like you do
I fall for her harder in the full moon
Meet me by the creek
I’ll be there all day
Wading in waist deep
Beneath the meteor display
Beneath the starlight
Soaking in the deep pools
I am a firefly
Now I can really see you
And you are better than you think
Wish you could see what I can see
You are better than you think
Wish you could see what I can see
And when they finally met midway between Hollywood and The Bay
They entangled at angles and covered eachother with eachother like they’d been doing since they were teenagers, toasting the coast and beyond and the sand they stood on was fucking violet.
I love California like you do
I fall for her harder in the full moon
Meet me by the creek
I’ll be there all day
Wading in waist deep
Beneath the firework display
Track Name: What We Have Made
What we have made
Is a wild thing
All I wanna do is talk about you baby And sleep all afternoon
In eachother’s light
Oh God to watch you get tired
I can’t look away, a cabin set on fire
And oh god to watch you layin out
Your hands to the north
Your feet down south
You are a piece of my body now
And I like you more than everybody without a doubt
What we have made
Is a wild thing
All I wanna do is touch your body baby And stay inside all day
In eachother’s light
Goodness me where the tears flow from the sea
Tracking a slow and steady tributary And goodness me where your jaw launches free
Carving a god damn smile across the whole ceiling
You are a piece of my body now
And I like you more than everybody without a doubt
