Track Name: Welcome To The Land Of Fear And Shame
Welcome to the Land of Fear and Shame
When you washed in all the people clap and cheer your name
You think that it's a beautiful place
Welcome to the Land of Fear and Shame

It's the land of sun and shade
When you washed in, the girls are on the beach and they are playing
And you don't wanna mess with those waves
Welcome to the Land of Fear and Shame

You heard the ocarina down at the cantina
I bet you've never ever seen her

Welcome to the Land of Fear and Shame
Track Name: Wildtype
You're mocking me
This ain't no mockery
I'm a human boy, I've got those human needs
And I provide although she said I don't
So I shook my head and I let her go
And I don't mind but by the 50th time
I had pulled my hair until my bald head shine
She's a suitcase gal with her window bro
And he's watching me as I'm driving home

She wait
Cause she know I'm gon be there
She gone but I don't even care - but I don't even

She's got a sensible mouth and a kitten's toe
When she drew my blood, I was begging no
Had to fight you down so that you'd go to bed
All I regret most, I will not forget
She's got a lipstick mouth and a seasoned nose
Don't you sniff me out when I'm sneaking home
Oh mercy me, I'm the holy soul
Face down in drinks down at the water hole

She wait
Cause she know I'm gon be there
She gone but I don't even care - but I don't even
It's shame but you know it's also fear
You know you don't have to stay here - You don't have to stay

I know your wild type
Stay out of my weary mind
Track Name: Flightless Little Birds
I was out of devotion
I was out of my mind
Someone's cool in the ocean
You are cool, I am kind
What's the fare at the station?
I am far from my home
Where you want to take me
I won't ever go

Memories, they meander
It's an old broken sound
I don't want to remember all the good things I've found
I just want to get back to all that I used to be
All your secret delusion
My man, it ain't me, no...

Listen to her words
They're all flightless little birds
They're not going anywhere at all
Listen to her words
They're all flightless little birds
They're not going anywhere
Track Name: Bad Reasons
Oh I got my reasons
And they're not half bad
Oh I got my reasons
And they're not that bad
Oh I know I love her
But just not that bad

You don't know (no, you don't)
I do so (maybe so)

I sleep on top of your ridge
I dip my head in the water
I do whatever they wish
Just so no one will bother and say, that I'm -

Oh I got my reasons
And they're not half bad
I read Cue For Treason and it's not half bad
I don't go above her cause she'd get so mad
I don't go above her cause she'd freak right out

You don't know (no, you don't)
I do so (maybe so)

I sleep on top of your ridge
I dip my head in the water
I do whatever they wish
Just so no one will bother and say, that I'm -

Well I - well I am you
And you - I know you are
Well I - I know you do
And you - I know you are

I sleep on top of your ridge
I dip my head in the water
I do whatever they wish
Just so no one will bother and say, that I'm -
Track Name: Rivers Shivers
In and out
Skinning my teeth - blood in my mouth
Here and now
Pieces of me lead to the south

The west coast, it boasts survival
It's hard to look and want to know
But in the end you know I will
I try to speak, I try to wake
At night when I can't stop the stuttering
I give you love for lovers sake
but tell me love, what's it gonna take?

In and out
We hold our breath and we hold our feet
Here and now
Heavy bones - no need to speak

The west coast, it boasts survival
It's hard to look and want to know
But in the end you know I will
I try to sleep, I try to wake
At night when I can't stop the stuttering
I give you love for lovers sake
The dog it barks beneath it's fur
I hold my throat, I yell and stir
I hold my cam, I feel no hate
I'll give you love for lovers sake
I'll show you love for lovers sake
I'll give you love for lovers sake

Rivers rivers
Shivers Shivers
Track Name: Twenty
I take it slow so that you owe me
And I let you down
And I let you know what's going on here
Cause I let you down

Down
And I let you down
And I let you down my love, no...
And I let you down

It's 9 in the morning
And I got to go
And I'm surprised that you're here at all
You say "what's love?"
And I say "what role?"
When I look in your eyes
All I see is cold
And I so long to keep them cold

And I feel so old
I'm only 20
but I know her sound
And I wanna know what's going on here
Cause it gets me down

Down
And I let you down
And I let you down my love, no...
And I let you down

Well it's 9 in the morning
And I got to go
And I'm surprised that you're here at all
You say "what's love?"
And I say "what role?"
When I look in your eyes
All I see is cold
And I so long to keep them cold

It's 9 in the morning
And I got to go
And I'm surprised that you're still here at all
And you say "what's love?"
And I say "what role?"
When I look in your eyes
All I see is cold
And I so long to keep them cold
I so long to keep them cold
And I so long to keep them cold
Track Name: Spaceship
I'm not enjoying it here
I think it's time to go somewhere else
If anybody comes near
I'm above my body and I'm hovering now
"Sincerely, Michael"'s what it read
Your time to focus has run right out
Spit out your fears and raise your hands
If you could take it, would you have it right now?
Would you have it?

I'm not enjoying it here
Is there a way that I can heal myself?
So if anybody comes near
For fucking once I could just be myself
So everytime I see my dad
Just maybe once, I would not see myself
And if those lights came hanging down
I wonder if I would just take me out
I'm not enjoying this fear
(every night I wonder)
I'm thinking maybe I will steal myself
(why those lights hang down)
And make a lion of this lamb
(deep inside my slumber)
And do something that'll make me proud
(that humbling, numbing sound)
That'll make me
Track Name: Feline For A Canine
The dogs are drooling
They're wearing caps from other cities, too big for their heads
The cats are alluring
And they're clawing on and off
Never pulling the thread

What do you see in me?

You got it wrong
I could be your baby
I could your babe

What do you see in me?

The dogs are waiting
But they ain't got cages, but their tempers are the best
They are debating
Whether to chew on my leg, or to lay on my chest
The cats are playing
They are the ones who wanna sigh when they lay down in bed
They are debating
And they're clawing on and on - and on and on and on

What do you see in me?

You got it wrong
I could be your baby
I could your babe

What do you see in me?
Track Name: North Carolina
I was on the verge of wasting time
I was on the verge - North Carolina

Teeth
Re: Stacks
Beach houses
She's a model in a college life
Head down to the harbor
Tie your hair and stay on his mind
See her driving pretty
Red carpet, red pickup truck
Rise the weekend and man, it ain't coffee in her coffee cup

These best friends count hours
There's a league and they ain't all up front
All her tastes, acquired
Got a taste of the mother's sons
Bleach blonde, strung in fabric
Not afraid of swaying in the mud
and if I've ever had it, she's the finest of the youngest bloods

You deserve much better
I was waiting on
You deserve much better, I

I was on the verge of wasting time
I was on the verge - North Carolina
Track Name: Polish
Come my dear, we're sitting by the sea
& waiting here for monsters to reveal
Baby
Philosophy, how I hate it so
Get your mind back on the ground Plato
You're changing your clothes

Anticipate that we're arriving late but I'll show
Remind your mind that there was once a time that we chose the cold
& I know you gotta polish off the Porsche

NYC is for the younger soul
& now I see you in your taxi car
It's amazing that you've made it
Girls who tease, aren't you all my curse
Boys who charm, I wanna fight you first
You're changing your clothes

Anticipate that we're arriving late but I'll show
Remind your mind that there was once a time that we chose the cold
& I know

Define the lines I'm in between
Do your dance of sex appeal
& if you are just into me
Make it known with kisses sweet

& I know
You gotta polish off the quart
Track Name: Land Of Fear And Shame
And it's time to sail away from the land of fear
My friends all hate it here
And we'll cast the sails upon the mast and we'll steer it clear
And it's time to run away from the land of shame
My friends don't know my name
Cause if they do, I don't complain

I was a marcher
A seven sail departure from the only place my heart thought to be true
And I was a hunter
But I couldn't even stun her
Gone like she'd come out of the blue
And we'll never see her again

And it's time to sail away from the land of fear
and my friends all hate it here
And we'll cast the sails upon the mast and we'll steer it clear

I was a marcher
A seven sail departure from the only place my heart thought to be true
And I was a hunter
But I couldn't even stun her
Gone like she'd come out of the blue
And we'll never see her again

And I'll never see her again
