Track Name: Magnolia
Make me a bed of magnolia flowers
Don't think I could sleep
So excited I'd be up for hours
Afraid to break this dream

So slow
No tone

Sink me in history
Up to my knees
Snap a picture right as I sneeze
I want to see the ecstasy

So slow
No tone
Track Name: The Kids Said Dance
With dusty shoes
An old set of cues
Let's dance tonight
Dance tonight

With sharp liqueurs
Let's paint the shores
Don't give a shit
The art of it

You can never say
Exactly say
Just what you mean
What you mean

But with ourselves
Tongues roll and swell
Saying awful things
To ourselves

The kids said dance alright now
The kids said smile again
But the kids are making mountains
The kids can't see the end

Smooth or rough
Can't get enough
I'll kiss the dirt
Right off your face

Earlier
In the day
Is not enough
When we die

The kids said dance alright now
The kids said smile again
But the kids are making mountains
The kids can't see the end
Track Name: The Lies We Tell Ourselves
It's air like this that makes me remember when
The grass was green and I was in my head

All the hours idle looking out
I sat around, waiting for that sound

I look back
And feel that way

Walk right by and stand there till they see
I'm not mad, but I wouldn't call it great

Walking slowly, I tried
To say out loud
But with the pauses between you
You saved me every time

I look back
And feel that way
Track Name: Arm song
In the moonlight
Feeling cold for you
When I look down the lane
I never knew

Well I know
It's all fucked up
It's all fucked up

Please forget it
Break your bones
When I think about it
It breaks my own

Well I know
It's all fucked up
It's all fucked up

But don't you go and cry your tears against the wall
Don't you move another inch it's not your fault
Cause home is home is me is you is not at all
Don't you go and cry your tears it's not your fault

GO!
