Track Name: All Your Crying
when all our days are gone
and every bill is paid
and all your crying's done

when water goes to blood
and breath goes into air
and all your crying's done

then you will forget

when elders' days are gone
and all your children's days
and all the crying's done

when season stop their turn
like records in their sleeves
and all the crying's done

then you will forget
because there's no memory left

when stars forget to shine
and every leader's blind
and all your days are gone
Track Name: Make It Up
Rake your heart of leaves up.
I don't think I'll be coming back.
I hereby do free you
from a long bloodline of heart attacks.

Don't fall out of fashion
or take your chips and cash in
just because you don't know the next line.

If you're not sure, make it up.

All those stupid boys behind you,
you'll soon find out were pretty tame.
The rest will pay no mind to your days,
your dinners, or your name.

Don't tear through all of your band-aids
and say that this ain't a fair trade
because you'll be there for a long time.

If you want out, make it up.

Forget everything I've told you.
Keep your warm feet in cold shoes
and walk away
on a bread trail of kisses and sighs
and reciprocal lies
that I told you would come in handy.

Just state your case and sign off.
We'll take some time and call you back.
Track Name: Sticks and Stones
the right heels
your life feels transcendent
god, you're on the prowl

the right words
your sight blurs
you speed through your night on the town

you made it just in time to blow
you made it all the way from home
you scraped that city to the bone
with sticks and stones and groans
and now you're on your own

the right dreams make lightning
but you're the static that they're craving
you're debating and crusading
but it's too dim to see you're fading

you're a bright wing, night fling, trite thing,
a well-bred WASP that knows it can't sting
you're the first thing they're expecting
so be quick and make the boys sing

because now you're on your own
and you're alone
Track Name: Everybody
everybody sees you
everybody knows your name
everybody needs you
everybody's on their knees today

everybody sees you
everybody hears what you say
everybody wants you
everybody wants you to stay

everybody sees you
everybody leaves when you go
everybody loves you
everybody loves you

everybody loves you
everybody hears your laugh
