Track Name: Sunburnt and Blown
so what others pray for
is someone else's problem
это только голод, только порядок

someone else's playground
isn't what we pay for
это только голод, только порядок

i spend all day with you, i don't have time to call
you spend all day with me, i won't see you at all

summon up your best smile
stretch it out with lipstick
это только голод, только порядок
heard you need attention
or a late night mention
это только голод, только порядок

i spend all day with you, i don't have time to call
you spend all day with me, i won't see you at all

i'll get you high with plastic prize
the world you'll see all curled in white
expensive mind, i'll let you eat

I can heal your words with albino snow
your polio's a vein to blow
fermented thin blankets form a syllable
third world's you'll own, sunburnt and blown
Track Name: House Sitting
heartache's out of season, a recall you don't quite get
but you're not sure how you're spending all your weekends home
when sum of the parts is none

(don't you forget about...)
go through the front door
(don't you forget about...)
just like you did before

don't you forget about dixon
the seas collide
don't you forget about dixon
it's knee high
don't you forget about dixon

house sit on the weekend, the beach house
you don't quite fit but you're not sure how
memory maps and weakened bones
when there's sound in the low-cut dawn

(don't you forget about...)
go through the front door
(don't you forget about...)
just like you did before

don't you forget about dixon
the seas collide
don't you forget about dixon
it's knee high
don't you forget about dixon
so much for straightening out my bones

so were the lines connected alright?
so when do things behave on time?
the floor is wet, beware, stay dry
can you escape it all in time?

i'm sleeping.
i'm wide awake.
cause in a way i'm torn away from...
cut it down, cut it down, cut it down cut it down, cut it.
is it better, is it better now?
Track Name: Protection Clause
I listen to the drone
the rain ticks out a tone
a preemptive breath sustained through what we've known
it's some way to comprehend
something on which to depend
a discipline worth mentioning again

separate intent and acting on
you can't jump ship till the ship is gone
need someone to get you on your way
you waited long enough to make the call
but the feeling of suspense isn't natural
without someone to get you on your way

somewhere a clause protects us from our flaws
it's an amazing, self-preserving safeguard
but i won't neglect the curse for our troubles may disperse
they're threatening to envelop this whole town

we step away, let the world do what it may
appreciate the subtlety
of direction without cause, exertion without pause
sleep without a sound, without a dream

separate intent and acting on
you can't jump ship till the ship is gone
need someone to get you on your way
you waited long enough to make the call
but the feeling of suspense isn't natural
without someone to get you on your way

so let's be honest come and see me
a lesson i've learned is "don't wait"
if afterwards it seems it just wasn't meant to be
at least we weren't stuck standing in the rain
