Track Name: All The Bricks in Brooklyn
When you first saw me, I wasn't right
When you first held me, used all your might
When you first caught me, I ran away
When you first loved me, I ran astray

Now we're knocking off the rocks that she's biting
Now he's kicking back the socks in her sighting
Blackened bed sheets on the loche of a riot
Now we ask her to keep quiet

And if you've got me
I'll choose a day
To keep you healthy
Use me this way
And if you're coughing I'll do what's right
And if you love me, turn off the lights

Louder tempting thoughts turned into writing
Raiding letters won't keep back her writhing
Hands are pushing back the bricks, legs are tightening
Grasping open lips
Well, she's trying

When you last saw me
I felt you bite
I knew you thought the god's on your side
Ran through the side walks cold and ashamed
When you first loved me I ran astray

Now we're cracking doors and windows
To the floor
Just to hear the shores colliding (I need it more)
And when the winds blows your way (my way)
I'll pack my bags and fly
Track Name: Below
the lovers are discovered
and it's turning all to gray
i can live without her
when she's tearing up her legs
we fought for the better part of the day
which reminds me you're not a necessity

i never could be like you with the doors closed
always being lied to in the sheeps clothes
he moves close to me
and asks why but i can't breathe

to wake in love is too sore
i can't make more
if you'll only just be a man who can't believe
you will promptly go to sleep
and i'll just wait below

i'll wait below
i'm just waiting, though
i will wait below
why's your heart so cold?

i've learned to lock my knees
for borderline dependency
i've pushed his anchor off of me
and sailed across stability

no loans unpaid
he's lost his way

won't wait below
a real resounding no
(and the door's closed)
i will not wait for long
i will not wait below
Track Name: Bones
Bones, I feel bones when I touch my toes
Though I feel stones when I catch a cold
Noble we are as soon as we get home
Though I'm alone and my head is sold

Oh, it's coming from my heart
No loving at the throws
And everybody knows, yeah everybody knows

Wipe that dirty look off your face
And face the day with grace
Only your wrinkled nose knows the way
The wind blows is no mistake
Track Name: Claws The Coal Out
Ask me where I come from
While I'm resting on your chest
I'll say when no one's looking I might tell you so
Last night you went prying trying to look beneath
The glass I've painted back
You're begging, I oblige then reply

Can't turn away when he looks into your face
He claws the coal out so diamonds never grow
Now you know

Your words would have kept me strung along
Warm vagrant mornings stop the fog
And I couldn't hide another gun
Your love would have kept me loading one

And just the other day I met a man
Who roughed me up beyond repair
I can't recall his name
And if he has a name it must be loud
So you can hear him when he pounds
The knife I'm taking inch by inch so gracefully

Can't turn away when he looks into your face
He claws the coal out so diamonds never grow
Now you know

Your words would have kept me strung along
Slow vagrant mornings calm my heart
And I couldn't hold another gun
You couldn't leave me dead for long
Track Name: Lady Laddle
lying in my linens
catching off their glow
rosie's in the kitchen
tearing off her clothes
mama's in her garden
no one knows her name
she still thinks were babies

oh, you taught me patience
and how to close my eyes
though you keep me waiting
my lover feed me lies like

oh, one day we'll move away
put all your things for sale
oh, touche it's not to say
bite all your finger nails

oh, youre cruel admit it
if i am not your girl
the hand that rocks the cradle
is the one who rules the world

oh we're going nowhere
are you in for the ride
life is but a dream
when hearts are racing slowly
to catch their last collide
night aint what it seems

lady, laddle love out for me
i'll be on my knees
radiate the line i cant cross
i still can't eat

oh you cant find love, if love aint what youre looking for
Track Name: Marbles
We know the man upstairs
And oh, his sunken eyes
A permiating stare
A notable disguise

Oh, green eyes
Of amicable size

But I know the words you say
Are not what you'll decide
I'll harbor a Tuesday to keep you set aside

Oh, green eyes
You'll nod in a reprise

Oh, the word is out
Delilah's lips are loud
I cannot stay here
Hold the lowest listening ear
Love is almost always all about the fear

The coldest I could stay
The ice still tucked inside
But he'll mark the nicest dame
With scratches she can't hide
Oh, inside her marbles all collide
Tomorrow they'll still try

The only win looks a lot like you
A post secret you can't undo
My bones have been on lock down for you
And a rose will bend under the moon
Track Name: Tumble Down
Lately I've been keeping thoughts I know will get me down
Holding hands and stealing looks when no ones around
Baby, I was feeling lost but now my love is found
And when we grow up I hope the music's still loud

I was a good girl
You let me my reasons drive
I had a good life
Until I missed that kiss goodnight
Now we're married we're not happy, it's not the same
And when you call me
I know everything you'll say
I think we're carried away
It seems to stay I'm not greedy, but I'm keeping you someday
Keep you just to say
I'm keeping you someday

And lately I've been picking locks
To pry inside your bed
Crawl on top and tumble down
For four weeks in June
Carry me to something more
I'm settled in your dreams
And when you waked rested
I'll kiss your tired head

And now we're married
We're not happy, it's not the same
And when you call me I know everything you'll say
Everything you've said
I've got everything you'll say
I think we're carried away it seems to stay
I'm not greedy, but I'm keeping you someday
Keep you just to say
I'm keeping you someday

And when there's nothing left to do
I will marry you
And chase you around our garden
And feed you all our food
Track Name: Silk Worm
Melting pot, he's spreading wet against her skin
Follow through with your plan
Lady luck, you carry the ageless worry in your hair
Making up the stories that you share

Wedding lock is tied for reasons
Tried for treason, shake to pieces
Breeding marks the time of season
Vowing that he'll keep your knees up

Dwelling taught the angry mastadon
To stretch his legs
Waiting for the task his feelings bring
Maiden such a weary traveler kept inside her nest
Making love with little time to rest

Wedding lock is tied for reasons
Tried for treason, shake to pieces
Breeding marks the time of season
Vowing that he'll keep your knees up
