mike wrote his songs on a tiny five dollar guitar in ecuador,
frances made hers under a blanket in a bedroom in poughkeepsie,
and this is when dave shotwell started drumming with us in a shed in the sideyard

Track Name: Get Outta My Room
these days my door is always shut tight.

why can't you see these feelings that frighten me / i just want to be seen, doesn't everybody / i couldn't stop moving my legs i need to get some exercise / i like to flex my muscles to the beat of duran duran stuck in my head / i am afraid of anything where formality is required of me / people don't believe me when i say that sometimes i can't speak / people don't believe me when i say that i didn't mean it in a bad way..!??

i keep wanting to leave, but i think i'm too weak
always thought i was strong, i keep wanting to leave

when i sleep too much i still feel tired
when i try to be shy i still feel tired
sorry i didn't make it to your morning party, i didn't wake up in time
Track Name: On the Roof
at night, in the morning
when my stomach stopped and my heart dropped
we were still and the earth was
spinning beneath our feet, on the roof, on fire

at sunrise, can't sleep
sitting up, so heavy
so be still and steady
and let the water roll your body

i used to walk around, humming to myself
and now i buy coffee for a dollar

my hands were bare
of all they felt before on the beach

we're driving east on the cold ground
i'm small and waving

to the stars that died on the mountainside
and those big brown eyes that i heard cry
Track Name: Big Trouble
i drove home on halloween, turned all the lights off so no one could bother me. my bedroom was bare, it was hard to fall asleep. when i did i dreamed dreams of my next door neighbor killing me

i kept remembering what it was like sitting in those outdoor chairs in the 3 o clock light. i almost fell out of my seat when you smiled your angry smile and put your hand on my knee.

yeah i was scared.
i'd run out of energy.
i saw you like a little cat begging for milk from me and i knew i couldn't give you what you wanted.
i saw you like a boat on an open sea

and i've been so alone

because you made me see
how cold the world can be
ever since you captured me with your hand on my knee.

i drove home on halloween, thinking about all my smart friends having fun without me. i don't know why i couldn't stay. i like to go to parties. but people don't like it when you fuck around with social boundaries and i can't abide it.

because you made me see
how cold the world can be
ever since you captured me with your hand on my knee
Track Name: Slowin' Down
"it seems like the sun's been setting all day" al said as we drove in the little car towards the stop sign.

"yea it's kinda like how you start dying when you're born."

"y'know what," she said, little bit of her white skirt sticking out of her winter coat
there was nothing in the sky
and a mountain in her eye

skippin' stones
you and me but i hear nothing, i feel no heartbeat
is it raining, or are things just falling down?

i don't know
where we're going, maybe south, but there's something bout
the early morning

driving round
slowing down
