Track Name: Sing Me To Sleep
When the thin-filmed apathy is peeled away

Clockwork silent in the snow

Portraits, spectacles and rooftops stain

Pages of a day she used to know


Ai lu lu


Tales of those cross-country bus tours

Herds of sheep lead the way

Beautiful girl inside that belly

Caressing when night falls, she'll say


Ai lu lu
Track Name: Mademoiselle
I walk this street alone
Because no one's at home
I have a date with Marie

Past Rachel I walk
I can't stop to talk
She is waiting on me

I miss the 24
Mrs. Schwartz I do adore
But I must be on my way

Mr. Viateur
You have a lovely daughter
But I don't have time to play

In the evening her breath just smells like gravy
In the morning congestion in her heart
And on Sundays she'll bake and beat her bongos
When she's done she'll get herself off

When we're together here
I often tend to leer
As other girls go passing by

Don't always stick around
But other gals I've found
Often take me to her side

In the evening her breath just smells like gravy
In the morning congestion in her heart
And on Sundays she'll bake and beat her bongos
When she's done she'll get herself off
Track Name: Lost Boys
Say nothing of faith or fear
Oh bold, blessed boy
King's ransom in problems unsolved
For trinkets and toys

Old dusty set packed up and saved
A tender-eyed smile
There's a light that's been counted away
In minutes and miles

Round and round
Supper can wait
Worn down
Still chasing that train

So gather the fragments of yore
Turn eights into threes
There's a voice that's been calling your name
Past the cellophane sea

Days measured in cigarette burns
And coffee stained lines
Rough palms touch face pressed to glass
Still sprawled on the pine

Round and round
Supper can wait
Worn down
Still chasing that train
Track Name: Saturday
Freckled noses browning in the sun
Your eyelash gone astray
Climb the ridge and catch the dying light
Throw our empties all away

You are safe where you are
You are home in my head
If there's nowhere to turn
I'll turn in

Cotton blankets bundled keeping warm
Swinging gently in the breeze
We rest our heads beneath the scattered glow
And swim in midnight mystery

You are safe where you are
You are home in my head
If there's nowhere to turn
I'll turn in
Track Name: Thanks, Sally
Dream awake
Eyes that shake
Drowning in a river

Push to left
Ears are deaf
Heavy air is amber

Like a child
Mouth beguiled
Reality’s a-fleeting

Quiet verve
Tingled nerve
Ground below retreating

Gentle spice
Toes of ice
Wild rushing current

Hypnotize
The far-off cries
No natural deterrent
