Track Name: Turkeys
I saw my car drive past me
got four eyes now, I can see
I was a liar, I never knew
once you find love, it's so hard to leave

Can't wait 'til class is over
we've been here forever and ever
and you were dancing in falling leaves
won't you come over and dance with me
Track Name: Porch
time it takes to grow old, on your porch
is it long enough
to get over you

summer rain brings your voice
to my ear
I'll stay up all night
just to hear your voice

if I ask politely
will you ask me
the question of,
"who do you love?"

who do you love,
and is it enough?

time it takes to grow old, on your porch
is it long enough
Track Name: Moths
Every night,
I watch from my window,
the moths,
dancin round the fake moon

Sun will rise
and hit our eyes
through tiny shutter lines

Summer time
I know why you still
wear your winter coat
(Don't want to grow)

I know why you still climb
into other people's clothes
Wanting to preserve, but
only stealing their bones

I grew out of mine
Track Name: Sbrbn Snst
Summer splinters
in the old sunny grave
where I lay down my wires

has the snow gotten you cold?
Do you remind yourself
of the golden gazebo,
suburban glow
on your face
like shattered glass leaves,
or the branches of the old days
or the pot-holes of your old age
Track Name: Days of Heaven
lost my time to a hopeless deed
dark blue sky creeps up on me
silver light, and spotted cheeks

lost my friend to the color grn
in her eyes, don't remember me
the days she climbs her pipe dream,
the years I died without her harmonies

lost my luv to a salty sea
how i wished it would swallow me
the crumbs on his fingers smell of smoke
days of heaven in a room too cold

the meat on his bones couldn't feed his soul
the dreams I stole 444
