Track Name: gravel shakes
I feel the sky break
as I hear the door take
I'm grappling with
gravel shakes and garden state license plates
In your kitchen
trying to slip sixty in my lemon drink
Your mom's friend walks in
right as I lift the glass to let it in
My hand freezes
while my eyes seize the colorful display
Ideally, I'd be drunk
so I wouldn't have to worry anyway
But I'm worried anyway

The summer's going to help
but the summer's gonna hurt
Track Name: perforated coasts
I'm driving down the line
moving miles out of my mind
trying to find daylight
pretty places perfectly perforated

and there it is
the coast boasts its soaked eyelids
while water breaks
feel still while my body moves away

cold opening sequence
the camera shows the feelings I frequent
my expression must've given me away
no dreamer's ever been so awake

and there it is
this isn't the first time
that I've been dealing with what's done
by picking bricks up with my tongue

the furniture presents itself
door opens the leaves blow themselves out
cold air circulates my circulation
everything is open hoping for revelation

and there it is
bright light as the sun rises
slept in my car
cause the idea was to be far
Track Name: hours spent
I've spent hours in front of my screen
and sometimes I shower
and sometimes I eat
but lately I leave just to see if
walking around's really
good for me

I've spent hours in front of my tv
and sometimes I get up
I get up to leave
but just to get up
or get up to eat
and sometimes I just lay down
lay down to sleep
Track Name: i luv the valley, oh (xiu xiu)
<<<
That's a pill and you've got to take it
That's a pill that you've got to take
That's a pill that you've got to take
I won't rest until you take it
That's a heart that you made
That's a heart and the both of you made it
That's a heart that you made
And I won't rest until I break it
It’s the l'histoire de la familie
It’s the l'histoire de la femme
It's the l'histoire de la familie
And I won't rest until I forget about it
I won't rest until I don't care
I won't rest until I forget about it
I won't rest until I don't care
La La La La La La La La La
That's a razor and you will make a threat
That's a razor make million billion threats
That's a razor and you will make a threat
And I won't rest cuz I heard it all before
My behind is a beehive, there's a buzz in my backside
My behind is a beehive and I won't rest
while you break my will
Je t’aime the valley
Je t’aime the valley OH!!!
Je t'aime the valley
I am an orphan de la valley
And I won’t rest until I forget about it
I won’t rest until I don’t care
And I won't rest until I forget about it
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

Track Name: the new economy
I am no butcher's son
No, I am no farmer's young one
There is no "...& son"
for the job that my father done

I want to live in a real small town
and know all the folks that are around

Stain my windows, not my pride
Have a shoulder to lean on each time I cry
and a glass to drink from when I get sad
and a bottle to break over your face when I get mad

Oh I wanna be in a real small town
so that when I hide, I'm easily found

I will work in the corner store
and rob my friends when I get bored
shoot the locks off their front doors
and draw chalk outlines on their floors

I wanna live in a real small town
so that there's not a lot of people around
Track Name: be here now
If you wanna go home, then go home
If you wanna be here, then be here
If you wanna be alone, then be alone
If you wanna be near, than be near

Come here
