Track Name: Lost and Found
We’re on our own / Our parents sit at home / We run on our cell phones / We sit and stare / You play solitaire / You bitch / You moan / American grown / And you wrote a song / That you sang once / By yourself in the dark / You don’t have a clue / How the world works / How working’s hard / Because you’re lost and found / You’re lost and found / No one is around / So I guess you’re lost for now / We ride the train / You sleep on a plane / You’re drinking in the rain / 25 / What does it mean to be alive? / Fortune and fame / A Christian name / We’ll drag each other down / When no one is around / We’re naked on the ground / Memories / I hunt like enemies / On my knees / Because you’re lost and found / You’re lost and found / No one is around / So I guess you’re lost for now / And I hope you found the thing / That’ll help you make it through / How we will ever know / What’s outside of this cartoon / Why can’t we just drive / We’ll drive somewhere new / Why can’t I just stop thinkin’ of you? / Thinkin’ of you / Thinkin’ of you / And what we used to do / And what we used to do / And I don’t have a clue / If you think of me too / I fade in your rear view / In your rear view
Track Name: Annabelle
She used to work / At the mall / Oh Annabelle / She’ll get you high for a twenty dollar bill / Suckin’ on caramels / She runs across the USA / Fuckin’ on the ground / She dreams about what she wants to / The world’s her carousel / Hey Annabelle / Towns in Washington / Driving around / On Klonopin / Promise me now / You’ll slow the car down / Spinning and spinning around / I go to sleep to the sound / Of her cutting my hair / I used to write things on the walls / With Annabelle / Winter’s spent drinking in the dance halls / In a neon spell / Now I see her / Way upstate / Naked in the lake / Say goodbye if you want to / This world’s a prison cell / A personal hell / Without Annabelle / Towns in Washington / Driving around / On Klonopin / Promise me now / You’ll slow the car down / Spinning and spinning around / I go to sleep to the sound / Of her cutting my hair / Hey Annabelle / Oh yeah / Hey Annabelle / Oh yeah / Hey Annabelle / Oh yeah / Hey Annabelle
Track Name: Decay
I’m running / Out of things to say / Into an old café / A game / A drug / A name / I’m flyin’ / High above the clouds / You open up your mouth / A face / In the crowd / People walk away / And time decays / I’m comin’ / I swear I’ll be there soon / I’m high / I’m drunk / I’m screwed / I’m alone / In a room / I see you / Walk by the bar / A candle in a jar / A silent movie star / People walk away / And time decays
Track Name: Art
Hey Kate / I froze you on the lake / A picture I took by mistake / I think you gained some weight / Out in Santa Fe / And I’ll run home / And think about that day / When we were shirtless / Craving each other’s face / And I put yours on a wall / In a gallery on / Astor Place / I’m an artist babe / Breathin’ from the grave / The world has changed / The streets have been rearranged / The blood that runs through our veins / The people who now seem strange / As they drive away / And I’ll run home / And think about that day / When we were shirtless / Craving each other’s face / And I put yours on a wall / In a gallery on / Astor Place / I’m an artist babe / Breathin’ from the grave / And I don’t wanna regret / The smell of your sweat / And your curved silhouette / And your voice in my head / August nights in bed / With a cigarette / With a blue eyed brunette / She’ll live forever on the internet / On the internet / I’m glad you’re at the show / But the curtains have to close / Now and then
Track Name: Cigarettes
The ground is hard / The sky is blue / That’s the end of it / The boys down on sixth avenue / They’ll take care of it / Oh and your / Mom’s so tired of living in pain / Saw my Dad in an oil stain / Kiddo’s weekend in PA / She said everything’s gonna be okay / Cars and planed bid you adieu / Just one last hit / Buy me a can of Mountain Dew / I don’t know how to quit you / Oh and your / Mom’s so tired of living in pain / Saw my Dad in an oil stain / Kiddo’s weekend in PA / She said everything’s gonna be okay / Come on baby let’s run away / We’ll find ourselves in another day / Menthols out on the Champs Élysées / Come on baby it’ll be okay / Come on kid / It’ll be okay
Track Name: Highway
Float on / Down the street / Hummin’ along / In her blue jeans / Nothing’s wrong / She is 19 / You were 18 / Full of caffeine / That’s her gasoline / That’s her gasoline / And we run along / Like we all belong / Out on our front lawns / At the break of dawn / And we remain in Pennsylvania rain / Playing French songs / On the mountain tops / Where the highway stops / You feed the swans / You’re with Colleen / Livin’ in San Juan / In the 90’s / She acts so strong / As sunlight stings / Through Autumn, Spring / Through Summer’s ring / She flips through her magazine / She flips through her magazine / And we run along / Like we all belong / Out on our front lawns / At the break of dawn / And we remain in Pennsylvania rain / Playing French songs / On the mountain tops / Where the highway stops

Track Name: Death
It’s a cold day / Why’d you wake up? / It’s a cocaine binge / After the break up / Your face smeared with her make up / And her high heels dangle on the bed / You woke up and wished you were dead / It’s a hard life in the city / And it’s a harder life in the prettier / Parts of the country you live in / You hold on to whatever kin / That keeps on breathin’ in / That keeps you from driftin’ / Like paper in the wind / Heaven or hell / You smell your mother’s smell / Oxygen runs out / You scream / You shout / Your time here is done now / It’s a hot night in the backyard / And / Air conditioned cars and bars / Women catch ya as they pass / You can’t stop pissin’ in your grass / Cause your grass never fights back / Swimmin’ in the pitch black / Darkness of the smoke stacks / You watch your life in reverse / You speak in familiar nouns and verbs / You’re waitin’ for this life to end / You don’t want / Time to mend / You wanna start again / You want a new best friend / Lovers in a dead end / Heaven or hell / You smell your mother’s smell / Oxygen runs out / You scream / You shout / Your time here is done now / You came in / You’ll go out / You believe / And you doubt / The things you couldn’t live without / But the prayers that you pray / Continue to breathe now
Track Name: Go Into Town
Lately I have found you sleepin’ on the ground / You’re making new sounds / When we’re in bed rolling around / And you wanna go into town / But I don’t wanna go out / Livin’ with me / You seem happy / We climb up trees / You wanna get married / And you wanna go into town / Well I don’t wanna go out anymore / When we’re done / Blood red suns will set on the T.V. / Gazing over Tennessee / I think I just saw Emily / Lying naked next to me
Track Name: The Train
I met you in carbon copy / On the party e-mail chain / I found some recent pictures / Of your study abroad in Spain / Where you were drunk out in the rain / Walk me to the train / And I will buy you some champagne / Mix it up with OJ / And you can tell me I’m okay / Tell me you’re the same way as I am / Tell me about the Virgin Islands / We’ve seen the same movies / Blacked out on New Years / The J train / To Jamaica Bay / How long have you lived here? / And / We’re both insincere as Hell / Walk me to the train / And I will buy you some champagne / Mix it up with OJ / And you can tell me I’m okay / Tell me you feel the same way as I do now / Tell me about the bars in your college town / Your college town / Let’s get on a plane / Let’s go back to Spain / And I will find you some cocaine / You’ll call in sick today / And you know life will be okay / Tell me you wanna stay / Say what you wanna say / Wake up to another day
Track Name: Space
I’m the one you kissed out on the dance floor / Your dim reflection in my eyes / You don’t have to see me anymore / Even though you think you oughta try / But I think / Come on let me in / Take me home again / Let’s kiss each other’s skin / Come on let’s begin / The past’s a violin / That now sounds violent / Chase / The sunlight in the wind / Space / Infinity has me pinned / Again / I’m the one you met on the front porch / The moon and the stars in the sky / You don’t have to love me anymore / Even though you think you wanna try / Come on / Hop on for a spin / Paris, Rome, Berlin / I don’t care where you’ve been / Come on just say when / Whiskey, Vodka, Gin / We can drink all of them / Chase / The sunlight in the wind / Space / Infinity has me pinned / Again / Brace / About to land in a new place / You’ve been lost in space / Awake in the night’s embrace / Memories erased / Gone without a trace
Track Name: Resurrection
And you wake up / What’s around? / Around this damn town / Drink up / Force it down / Try and sleep now / Dangerous flames / It’s all the same / An endless board game / The trees all sway / Her hair turned grey / At the Chinese buffet / Life as a man / Fish in the pan / Life has a span / A life you lived in Vans / Were the children born in France? / On the beaches out in cans / It’s a day dream / A movie scene / A jolt of caffeine / A shot at fifteen / Your body clean / As you kissed Colleen / You slept on beds / You’ve messed with heads / You’ve pissed on the dead / The park where you bled / Smoked and spread / And ate buttered bread / Life as a man / Fish in the pan / Life has a span / A life you lived in Vans / Were the children born in France? / Or on the beaches out in cans / I’ll be reborn as land / I’ll sit inside your hand / It’s a new day / The sun’s rays / That wash you away / Your words are clichés / That you obey / While chemicals spray / A new life / A pair of dice / Husband and wife / American strife / Italian mice / We all pay a price
