Track Name: The Follower
I guide my satellites
though shaking, they’re following you
this taste, the cut and the shape
I can’t carry the weight of
this message to you

And your eyes, your eyes
your eyes and your mind
betrayed your kind long ago
I tend to lean to the safe and familiar
…just go with the devil I know

I’ve walked at least ten thousand
steps behind what is the truth
whatever drives my motivation
has destroyed my true sense of you

oh and your eyes, your eyes
your eyes and your mind
betrayed your kind long ago
I tend to lean to the safe and familiar
…just go with the devil I know


Oh now that I’m a bit older
I see so much of what was wrong
I can’t just sit here and solve
all your problems
when I have so many
of my own

oh and your eyes, your eyes
your eyes and your mind
betrayed your kind long ago
I tend to lean to the safe and familiar
…just go with the devil I know
Track Name: This Taste
It’s midnight
My face is still warm from the sun
and I’ve been wide awake for far too long
since my mistake marches on
I go on….

This taste
still lingers in the corners of my mouth
and I can’t find the words to wash it out
and since my regret is headed south
I go on….

Oh how I wish
I was there to see your face
when this complicated thing
finally found an end

Wringing my hands
oh god I’m gonna miss
the rhythm, the pace,
the way your wheels spin

The end of the line seems like
the perfect place to begin

This place
reminds me of the ways
that I have failed
and that everything has
gone to hell
and I’ll just toss it all into the swells
and go on….

Oh how I wish
I was there to see your face
when this complicated thing
finally found an end

Washing my hands
oh god I’m gonna miss
the rhythm, the pace,
the way your wheels spin

The end of the line seems like
the perfect place to begin
Track Name: Carolina
You refuse to go to school
your friends will never hang with you
so you fake it,
you call out with the flu

you can’t find your way outside your door
half dressed, face down on the floor
and it’s a one girl civil war behind doors

won’t you raise your head


The valium guy died, the valium guy,
you the know the valium guy, he died.

Carolina, no

She’s comin’ out of her skin again
twisted back, purple shins
I’ve never seen her so pale, so thin

She won’t talk, she can’t eat
and she’s losing her faith
to trust even me
and I’m steadily getting lost and weak

won’t you raise your head
won’t you raise your hands

The valium guy died, the valium guy,
you the know the valium guy, he died.

Carolina, no

When you wanna hang around
come outside with me
we’ll lay down on the ground
and we’ll talk out loud to the sky
Track Name: Wherein Our Hero Becomes the Villain
I can’t take much more than this
your head is buried in the sand
I can’t leave you any more than
you can help yourself

I can only offer
what I can build with two hands
anything that cracks and peels
will wither without fail

there is no switch to adjust the tone
or anyone could just come along
and make themselves at home



picture this: it takes a twist,
you butchered your first on-screen kiss

and true to life the story ends before
the plot begins to gel

and we’ll go straight to hell before
the image hits the screen.
and in the final scene…

we’ll catch our breath
as the picture fades
Track Name: The Arrangement
I think it’s just best if we
leave well enough to die
I can’t even feel my lips
but I can still feel yours just fine

take
peel
back
my
soft
heart
touch
time

I’ve never been anything to anyone
you know I’ll keep your stories safe
we must speak of this to no one
I’ll take your stories to my grave


The motion of your fingers
spins the wheel another turn
the potion makes it linger
just let go, and let it burn

take
peel
back
my
soft
heart
touch
time

I’ve never been anything to anyone
you know I’ll keep your story straight
we must speak of this to no one
I’ll take your secrets to my grave


we must speak of this to no one.
