Track Name: Great Mapping Out
I mapped out the west
drop my shit and find a place to rest
but all along I was all wrong
I was talking at the ceiling
or the stranger above?
saying 'where do i go to find some money
and a new love?'
i need a new love
Is it true? you dont know what it is
you spun the bottle and kissed me on the lips
now i only need your pity
so give it to me
give it to me just like a tuesday afternoon
I mapped out beliefs
and Ive had enough
i need a better old book to read
because all along it was all wrong
Would you hate it if I said I think the bibles not true?
would you throw me away?
I think you would if you really knew
what was good for you
good for you
no I dont have magic powers
I just need my baby girl here
I think that she might teach me some of hers
When Im riding on my train, I go straight over the river
and into a video game
but its all the same to me; i was born under concrete
and i will die before it really leaves
Track Name: Waking Up In Brooklyn
golden light on golden hair
i asked the doorman downstairs
'last night, did you fall asleep and have a mid-shift dream?
if you did then i understand.
you are a hard working overnight man'
so help me now

when the afternoon sun comes and wakes me up,
i will ask myself 'did i sleep enough?'
you are the moon here,
and you are autumn in the berkshires

at the end of the day i walk back home to my own place
found that doorman setting up
he knows it aint so easy
hes worked 45 years and still cant make enough

i had found her, when you had found her
Track Name: Finally
the steam has beat our beady eyes
im a sitter for the fold,
a zipper in the cold

when our mother finally comes back home,
he will keep the rainin' up
the rain is gone
when our father tries to change our minds
we have had enough of that
Track Name: Eastern Town
I'm stepping over weathered roads
their wounds are deep and lay exposed
visible is the sand and the rocks that make the land
the earth below

the sun is scared to show its face
so he hides behind the clouds and wastes his day
so it feels colder
and the sky is a brighter grey

I saw clear and crisp as i strolled past
the churches steeple and its stained glass
I saw some lights inside
I just don't know why I cry when they laugh

Its quiet still and empty now
It always feels like something in this town
I still don't know what it is but one day I might find out

I came upon an empty lot
stepped inside and fell apart
I always knew I was frail
but I never thought that I would break my own heart

now Im two hours out plus two hours back
I've seen the beauty but I cannot forget the past
my voice, it moves between the trees
with the sounds of birds it plays hide
and seek

hide and seek

it seems quieter when Im alone
and staring at the ground below
so I take the side streets
where there is no breeze and I can walk real slow

the factories are all getting old
they're abandoned now
but a building has no soul
so I cant feel bad
when I stop and see them all decomposed

then again its the same with me
we are kind of all just like factories
we work so hard in life
then the day we die,
we are rendered useless for an eternity
Track Name: Gardenvision
I still love you
I never said that I didnt
Im a monster that you lived with
between four eyes
I lost my head for a time
Moved home from NYC
and Im better off

so in the morning
first in the garden
i lift my head and im on the floor
i walked three streets over
three streets sober
when i found it
you were sleeping right in his bed
under the sheets
haunted mattress
we were best friends
what happened?
what happened??
I had been sleeping there for days
when you came in uninvited
and we woke up and talked about it
now were better now,
were better now right?
Track Name: Dreamy
I wish that Georgia was my best friend too
I wish that all the things around me
were the same around you,
but the worst part is
you only exist in an album of pictures
I think they're your sisters

______, now I see you in my dreams at night
and when I see your icy eyes, I cry
and I wake up wet
see my tears and sweat?
Oh my god I am a wreck
Baby come a little closer to Providence

You've got the body baby
I'm a little parasite
I'm gonna find you just to eat you
from the inside out
I'm a dark cloud
and you're the sun that is coming out

______, now I see you in my dreams at night
and when I see your icy eyes, I cry
and I wake up wet
see my tears and sweat?
Oh my god I am a wreck
Baby come a little closer to Providence

Fuck the grapevine
I wish you would say it to my face
Getting worse when its already bad enough
I guess I don't know you much like them
Track Name: Mama Mary
o fast road
are you getting slow?
could you help me slow down?

o mama mama mama mary
i dont know why youre crying
i dont know why you would cry for me

she said 'o you locked the doors to your house to keep only me out, and i bet you want my sorrow now'
well if youre sorry then im sorry and if im sorry then you are free
and this freedom is exactly what you need.
