Track Name: Yellow House
left my ID on the table
nobody lives in my yellow house
though I had thought I was able
you know I'll never leave my yellow house
the walls are blue and they're stable
nobody lives in my yellow house
I read the words on the label
they say don't ever leave your yellow house

yellow house

left some spare change on the table
nobody lives in my yellow house
I watch television cable
doing lots of drugs in my yellow house
the floors are wood and they're stable
nobody lives in my yellow house
I read the words on the label
they said don't ever leave your yellow house

don't ever leave
your yellow house

yellow house
Track Name: Elephant
I don't know where I wanna go, no
destruction is there from the start
a house on fire won't go out, go
to the place where the root is a heart
beating red in the street is it so, is it so
hard to make yourself not fall apart
give in to the place on the floor where you
see a bug that resembles yourself
kneel down before it like in a pew
this part is my personal hell
you give and you take and you take and you
never learned how to forgive yourself
when the room starts to close in you know that you're fucked
now what will you do?
a house on fire, now the elephant knows
destruction is there from the start

a house on fire
now the elephant knows

I don't know where I wanna go, no
destruction is there from the start
a house on fire won't go out, go
to the place where the root is a heart
beating red in the street is it so, is it so
hard to make yourself not fall apart
give in to the place on the floor where you
see a bug that's been dead for 2 years
kneel down before it like it is you
this part is our favorite hell
you give and you take and you take and you
never learned how to be yourself
when the room starts to close in you know that you're fucked
now when will it end?
a house on fire, now the elephant knows
destruction is there from the start
Track Name: A Fountain Falling
a fountain
falling
a fountain
faling

falling, falling

white ceiling
crumbling

into thin air, Pygmalion
breathe through my lungs
filled with fear
we'll bit our own tongues
you were watching
I was lost
you were touching
all my thoughts

falling, falling
fall
Track Name: Agalmatophilia (Seize Lizards)
seize lizards
seize lizards
seize lizards
agalmatophilia

seize lizards
Track Name: Mirror
your sleep patterns are dream projections
etched into the pillow a micro-centimeter deep
that's all it takes to fall inside
wrapping back into yourself

waking up put off for this
the sound of drills but no one is there
including you
you dream about waking up
to find an owl flying around your room

you couldn't catch it
it flew away, the owl light brown
was it waiting for you?
you wake up again
find nothing but the sun
too bright through red curtain

the heat of days that keep coming
relentless in their repetition
I give in to the rays
there is no choice I don't make
they all come rushing through

way down the hall
you watch yourself
in the mirror

asleep again but restless
miscalculated medicine
taking care of yourself in theory
staring a screen you delineate
lost in the details

pixelated pathos and white noise
rushing over you
can't write a consistent message
can't keep myself straight

a clue to the error
or just a justification for you
I'm losing the ability to paint a picture
simply narrating and doing it poorly
what does it matter to you?
I'm not here for that

the key is fashioned out of new chemicals
a brain system for unlocking love
you and me become each other
history rolls over us

way down the hall
you watch yourself
in the mirror

way down the hall
I watch myself
in the mirror
Track Name: You Can Still Die When the Sun is Shining
couldn't talk to anyone
it's too late
kiss your youth goodbye
told yourself you
wouldn't procrastinate
you're always wasting time
making decisions
just to say you did
no satisfaction in this room
in a clouded head space
you hid from everyone you knew
lost out on the chance
to be whole
now you will never

sleep never comes
fatigue ensues
comfort's never reached
understanding eludes

when will the melodies
sound new again?
it never mattered
guilt is sewn into my heart
