Track Name: Pixie Lust
you're breaking in your skinny jeans
up there on the hanging screens
we hear your voice fly up falsetto slow
listen carefully for secret codes
god, your face

we're gonna take a million moving pictures
and post them all day and night
sharp in color
every bounce and movement slight
right click save

the smile of a man whose dreams have come true
it's not half as beautiful on anyone but you

you have no idea what you do
dirty things we wanna do right back to you
when you move that way

oh when you squeeze your eyes shut, your magic powers show
it's all we can do to bask in the glow

the smile of a man whose dreams have come true
it's not half as beautiful on anyone but you

we're gonna take a million moving pictures
and post them all day and night
sharp in color
every bounce and movement slight

Track Name: Blackwinged
hook my fingers into his collarbones
the strange sighs, the fleeting moans
and no one knows what i unconscious wrote
tucked away in a mental note
and it's fine right here
what doubt, what fear?

you could write me letters
i could sit up on a star
but it wouldn't work

you fill my dreams with feathers
always, unknowing, invade
it doesn't hurt

so take me under wing
take me under clouds
take me in the lack of light for just a little while
you're so maddening, angel

you slip silent next to me
what do you know, what do you see?
shifting between heaven and hell
between the sheets we might as well
your voice crying clear
keep me crazy down here

you could write me letters
i could sit up on a star
but it wouldn't work

you stumble through my curtains
soft and glowing as i fade
make it hurt

so take me under wing
take me under clouds
take me in the lack of light for just a little while
you're so maddening, angel

i can't do this anymore
i say as if i have a choice not to adore
you, it's always you

she said the unattainable only makes things worse
the loveless flirt

you stumble through my curtains
soft and glowing as i fade
make it hurt

so take me under wing
take me under clouds
take me in the lack of light for just a little while
you're so maddening
you're soooo maaaaddening
you're
so
maddening
angel
Track Name: Dopamine Life Cult
music tells you who to be with, predicts yours and mine
i stumbled on your quiet love like a cardboard cabin on the treeline
it's your art and your fortress
your gentle heart puts stars in me
innocent bystander i understand what you see

i hear a songbird scratching stories of defeat
with her heart full of arrows throbbing underneath
we're sitting on the same wire, burning both the same
not like the outsiders, well this is why the hell we came

from ears to eyes it all just burst into light
the strangest purity, these feelings
they've got a way of touching everything denied
it's not a weakness if we feel so alive

if i could pour a glass for you, maybe we could chase
the end of every year until you're kissing on that face
comforting is something and you know to do it well
when the waves are greener foaming angry at the swell

our tears are cut with sugar when we share
goodness knows it's not the lightest load that we bear
i'll carve a shape, a space for you
a comforting place to curl into

from ears to eyes it all just burst into light
the strangest purity, these feelings
they've got a way of touching everything denied
it's not a weakness if we feel so alive

the waning moon, diminished just so slight
insanity is ours to howl about tonight
oh what a hunger, full and ripe!
IT'S NOT A WEAKNESS IF WE FEEL SO ALIVE
Track Name: Here's A Body
it's too simple to have me on my knees
it's been six years, i just get easier to please
or was that harder, dear?
explains why i'm down here

but that's only a wishful turn of phrase
i know where i'm not, but you're on your way
or asleep on five star sheets
my companion constellations are bittersweet

i haven't said, only quietly
all the reasons you mean so much to me
you threw a match on my nest of feathered ash
my heart crawled back to my waiting ribs for that
i never thought i'd make it, here's a body at your call
please take it
cuz' i wouldn't be here otherwise
if i didn't slowly scald inside

before the night is through
we'll see if i can make it to
the ecstacy, my secret high
or i die of loving you

don't make me explain things were awful before
i'll drag myself around the universe on all fours
rock and roll my life away
who needs to sleep with the thngs you say

my heart is beating and that's enough, you know it's tough
but i'm only breathing for this kind of stuff
tonight i'll dream of helping you get ready for bed
turning on the radio and giving you... oh god no i'd be instantly dead

i can think about it all i want
not even there in spirit but somehow you haunt
any empty ventricles between my lungs you find
i can't decide whether or not i mind
i never thought i'd make it, here's a body at your call
please take it
cuz' i wouldn't be here otherwise
here's to that shifting in your skin, unearthly opal eyes

before the night is through
we'll see if i can make it to
the ecstacy, my secret high
or i die of loving you
i'm almost tired of loving you
Track Name: Emergency Blanket
you're the last one, I know it's true
this should be fun but it injures me too
i hold my breath until I'm morning glory blue
don't wanna exhale these eighteen hours until I see you

it's like we've danced together, stuck in amber, hold me now
just in your eyes a while, breaking laws of time in the mighty crowd
i fight for my body back to move within this sliding tide
cuz now I know that i don't really want to die

and it's like I've never been this warm before
banged against the rail all evening, lungs are raw and legs are sore
sleeping on the sidewalk outside til the trucks arrive
reveling in the confetti of bruises sprayed across both thighs

i'm gonna laugh my world into a new design
it hurts but I heal and I'm willing to spend my life in line
there is no decadence just diner food and no defensiveness
i'd spend so much to make this never end
Track Name: Nowhere (Neon Blue)
i don't want to hurt anything
i made myself believe in angels
just to be beneath your shadow
daydreaming i'm beneath you, i know
handcuffed to the bedposts of my memories
you're crooked and careless
smiling over at me
and here i warm myself with that imagery
would you like what comfort you gave accidentally?
i am greedy, i am magic
i want you
not for always, just an hour?
really anything would do
but there's nowhere in this world we can be alone
what did my face say?
i threw my heart at you
forget the universe
cuz' there's that neon blue
i'm scared to death and it's okay
i've been out here all night
i can barely stand
mosquito bites and screaming
"worth it!' cuz' i love that man
but he's leaving on the soonest flight
i am creepy, it's unhealthy
tell me what to do
i can't seem to get a fix
from pixelated views
i could never, no i swear it
still i want you
words are useless
i'm not sleeping like i used to
and there's nowhere in this world we can be alone
i die inside, it's so
lovely when you moan
it's fine
it's fine, i'll watch you 'til you go
Track Name: Where My Trouble's From
i wanna sing your lonely flat to sleep
give you some company gentle enough to keep
sometimes you ask me where my trouble's from
and swallow half the darkness hoisting up this hum
you analyze the eyes obsessive, filter through your hands
as if it all came easy, i wanna be in your favorite band
in the forgiven distance i forget that I'm not well
steal your side's starlight to soothe my eyes from daytime hell

unsure and awkward, i'm a mess of hurried words
teeth full of compliments i slip away from her
secretly counting down the days
'til we have some excuse to cross our ways

oh no it's happening again
twice as ridiculous as my jealous love back then
i barely speak your name there's power in each vibrant third
three times precisely, then three words more that won't be heard

unsure and awkward, i'm a mess of hurried words
teeth full of compliments i slip away from her
secretly counting down the days
'til we have some excuse to cross our ways

i wanna sing your lonely flat to sleep
but my somber 3AM has pulled me somewhere deep
