Frogs 02:04
A nervous cloud of rain enters my mind To wash away pollution that I love Damage I hold dear It keeps me whole, keeps me clear I'm sure I'll be fine This happens all the time Distractions from the frogs that live in fear Hidden in the swamp between my ears Their aim is true, just simple friends Too scared to die or leave
Gone 01:03
Dead and dried out, couldn't take the strain Won't be back again Gone Sorry I can't bring it back around Won't be back again
Thoughts and prayers, it's the least I can do My condolences, no changes in policy I was so sad to hear about it If only there was something I could do They will pay the piper, but they won't pay enough Don't let that distract you from work that must be done
She steps to the gate Hard to keep it on the inside Just one life to waste Sullen sweet to ride the ridgeline Do you want to go back? Do you want to go back to where...
The Good 03:16
Great things go to the voracious The rest is left for the good enough You can't be good, so be careful, know you should It's just enough to taste the wine I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst And to lay it by my side I am willing to know the whole truth She lit a match to clean the cold Turned her house into a hole On the way out, had to crouch down Authorities asked if she'd been cause of the accident What's a breakdown? Do you want out?
This nightmare too insane and bigger yesterday A mirror to my brain, I'm sealed in self-contained But I fear yesterday, the dreaded commonplace A tunnel to my grave besides The critics cry in vain they scream for yesterday The giants stretch and strain their lazy metal frames I don't deny, if hell is fair, then hell is fine
Had a dream, when are you coming down? In the deep end, broke the rules Love is blinded by the weak defense Friends will take you for a fool For fear you'll double back on them The likely threat Takes years to build up the courage of means and ends Next best friends Had a dream the house was emptied out Tore the pages from the book Where's the best place you can hide in town, Ben? Friends will likely bury you
5 Year Plan 01:49
The future is a strange thing, draw your cards to see Five year plan to still exist, hard enough to be Move away and quit your job, you're changing the wrong thing Stuck inside your head despite all the traveling Turn yourself into a dog, it's worth imagining In another country you're a hund, wau wau dasein That's a plan I'd like to make, fetching and lapping No hard choices left to make, goodbye old me!
In the time it takes to lose your mind Made you miss your ride Whet the daily appetite for crime Read the New York Times Too amazed to whisper your reply Time to run and hide Did you wait til all the clouds were nine? All the stars were sky?
