Stomachache 03:39
Thinking I was getting over it Taking sodium bicarbonate Every time I had a stomachache I could not assimilate or meditate away Stewing in the juicy bits Blue mouldy to be rid of it All the sweet treats and slick tricks Making diamonds out of bricks Making diamonds out of bricks Making diamonds out of bricks Thinking I was getting over it Taking sodium bicarbonate Every time I had a stomachache

Sunny Day 02:27
Sunny day Don't walk away Bright, bright sunny day It felt like nothing could stop us When we arrived in L.A. From having tacos and tapas Straight away The air was perfumed, romantic Wind blew tender and cool Salted breeze by the sea Feeling fly like the bee's knees But the night came long The lines grew deep in her eyes Like strains of sad songs Sunny day Don't walk away Bright, bright sunny day It felt like nothing could stop us But the night came long The lines grew deep in her eyes Like strains of sad songs The lines grew deep in her eyes It felt like nothing could stop us

Gravity 02:28
Maybe we could do a Wednesday Maybe we could do next week Maybe it'll take a month Maybe two Let's see what gravity brings Let's see what gravity brings Let's see what gravity brings Things always fall into place Or face come crashing down Let's see what gravity brings Let's see what gravity brings Things always fall into place Or face come crashing down So maybe we could do a Wednesday Maybe we could do next week Maybe it'll take a month Maybe two Let's see what gravity brings Let's see what gravity brings Let's see what gravity brings Things always fall into place Or face come crashing down Let's see what gravity brings Let's see what gravity brings Things always fall into place Or face come crashing down So maybe we could do a Wednesday

Inside 02:46
Practically living inside There will not be tickets The beta testers love it When we’re all just characters When we’re all just characters When we’re all just characters Living inside the perfect companion Practically living inside One foot out the window One foot free to kick And it’s all in stereo And it’s all in stereo And it’s all in stereo Living inside the perfect companion

The Blinds 05:05
Rise up from the blinds Sing through hard times Watch them fly away Far out of range So strange how things change When they fly away Step and be quick Or take your time if you please Whistling Dixie Beneath the Sword of Damocles Ask for your love to be fearless It's contagious Truth turns out to be So vague Rise up from the blinds Sing through hard times Watch them fly away Far out of range So strange how things change When they fly away So step and be quick Or take your time if you please Whistling Dixie Underneath the Sword of Damocles Ask for your love to be fearless It's contagious Truth turns out to be So vague Rise up from the blinds Sing through hard times Watch them fly away Far out of range So strange how things change When they fly away Rise up from the blinds Sing through hard times Watch them fly away Far out of range So strange how things change When they fly away

Jellybeans 03:39
Pearly gates floating over mobile homes Pink sky Gasoline Golden days savored in the hours when the water runs clean Lazy days lolling in the open road Painting pin stripes Long and lean Open faces filled with lonely bones crave something sweet Something sweet Something sweet A dream of days in love and easy life A little drunk On a cider drink Streaming from above the fading light falls soft on the jellybeans And I can’t wait to put my fingers in the jellybeans I can’t wait to put my fingers in the jellybeans I can’t wait to put my fingers in the jellybeans I can’t wait to put my fingers in the jellybeans My fingers in the jellybeans

Sometimes I take things a little too hard Too heavy, excessive Too fast and too far Break my fragile body, my brain, my heart You put back together what was taken apart Sky of gold over green vine So quiet, serene Can turn dark on a dime Without warning or time to think Sometimes I take things a little too hard Too heavy, excessive Too fast and too far Break my fragile body, my brain, my heart You put back together what was taken apart Play on restless augury A north star symphony That whispers your name As it whistles back at me Sometimes I take things a little too hard Too heavy, excessive Too fast and too far Break my fragile body, my brain, my heart You put back together what was taken apart

Lifeline 02:31
Am I ever gonna make it home tonight It’s all so indistinct Shocks of color and fuzzy outlines It hurts my head to think Whoa, I’m in deep this time Gotta throw out another lifeline Am I ever gonna make it home tonight Am I ever gonna make it home tonight No man but no man is an island I wonder if we will ever meet again Encounters always leave a mark I wonder if we will ever meet again Am I ever gonna make it home tonight It’s all so indistinct Shocks of color and fuzzy outlines It hurts my head to think Whoa, I’m in deep this time Gotta throw out another lifeline Am I ever gonna make it home tonight Am I ever gonna make it home tonight It’s all so indistinct It hurts my head to think It hurts my head to think No man but no man is an island I wonder if we will ever meet again Encounters always leave a mark I wonder if we will ever meet again Am I ever gonna make it home tonight It’s all so indistinct Shocks of color and fuzzy outlines It hurts my head to think Whoa, I’m in deep this time Gotta throw out another lifeline Am I ever gonna make it home tonight Am I ever gonna make it home tonight
