Lyrics

Half Right
Half right - walking down the street you look sexy
maybe it's the only thing that we see in you - but what can us boys do?

High school seems so far away in this big town
maybe all the comforts and gentle guarantees seem further every year

so, we only work on the weekends, taking our time with our hands
saving up for the summer to go off and spend everything
andI'm only here for a second, but I liked all the things that you said
so maybe just for a minute, we can slow down and take it all in

Streetlight flickers like a strobe through my window
catching all the heat with imperfect sense of time - mine is yours and yours in mine

Naked, dancing in a midnight station
all the coins we need for these chances to appear - pay for the coast to clear

we only work on the weekends, taking our time with our hands
saving up for the summer to go off and spend everything
andI'm only here for a second, but I liked all the things that you said
so maybe just for a minute, we can slow down and take it all in
When worry about the money? When grow up and get real?
When will working on the weekends be more than some cash and a meal?

Creature
I am not the creature that died under the sink, but the stench of my dark passenger is here
Not a lover, not a fighter, just a lost romantic prick, somehow always losing everything

So jump off the ship, I'd like to sink with this one - and learn a thing or two to take away
All tired and reused and need revision. What if a simple fix could help me stay?

Closing both my eyes to all the problems. Turning my whole back to past mistakes.
Repeating once again what life had taught me would be dumb to ever try again

Baby, you're my fix - so go on fix me - and I'll try not to break anything great
Yeah, karma's a bitch, but I get lucky. With my fourth second try I'll make it eight.

Dinosaurs
I'm living in a big black city with the lights real bright all around
Real shame to end our time together - Jake was right, there're ghosts in this house
Move far off from the ones you love just to stay young and logical
Ten thousand years, this big black city will be under ten feet of dirt.

I'm a dinosaur, I'm a dinosaur

Keep living and I can't stop thinking about it, all the options are real
Might be better to hide forever and forget all the appeal
Keep thinking that I won't get lost until I try to be found
Ten thousand years this big black city will be lost and far underground

We're all dinosaurs, We're all dinosaurs

Buyer's Instinct
Still living on high hopes - just keep wishing that that pushing will give way to something more
It's the buyer's instinct in me
and I'm still balanced on the rope - between relying on my friends and getting shit done on my own
It's the tired instinct in me

The quickness of time will always be dark and scary
balancing my weight between full and empty

And I'm still laying on this shore - in this tide pool I am dreaming, I am drowning, I am bored
It's the tired instinct in me
Still living on high hopes - just keep wishing that that pushing will give way to something more
It's the buyer's instinct in me

The quickness of time will always be dark and scary
balancing my weight between full and empty

Goldmund
Goldmund, Goldmund, what're you trying to see?
Goldmund, Goldmund, why the stale release?
Change of mind and happenstance is feeding the lion that's feeding the rest of the pack

He said, "hold me down for I can hardly breath"
Need not hold on to the hand that planted your seed, young tree
And it's alright that it's all you can see
What you want is happening you just got to go finding it

Well I'm on the mainland and you're on the coast
steal you forever and leave you alone

Goldmund, Goldmund, always traveling
Goldmund, Goldmund, always paints and sings
and builds the beauty, statuette, to bring out the face the pain and the orgasms get

He said, "stop this horse, for I am withering"
"Im nothing but a skeleton of what I remember to be"
"No more marathons just injuries"
"What I needed never left, just been circling all around it"

Well I'm on the mainland and you're on the coast
steal you forever and leave you alone
And I'm sorry Mama, I know it must hurt
to need you forever and leave you alone

Believers
Well I wish she believed in my dreams as much as I did in hers
You see she was the realist and I was the dreamer, and despite all the real talk we were both schemers
The race took off without a hitch and nothing old
Was the way we touching, the way we were talking in codes
Us believers believe what they need to in order to grow.

So we closed out eyes and I took you dancing on empty streets
Was the way that we crashed, the way that we broke at the knees
The moon lit our way, but just led us out into the sea
So Im listening close to all that these stories have to tell
So many versions of ways to stay out of hell - all preaching the same that love is our salvation.

Mine (exclusive track to vinyl pressing)
Grew up in the country, he said it was the sticks
Said, "growing up in the country in the only way to live"
"I don't like all the noise and I get to shoot my gun - living in the country is the only way it's done"

And its mine - Let the cattle eat the weeds
And its mine - Eat fresh apples off the trees
And its mine - It's the only way to be

Flew in from the city on a non-stop flight
Said, "I already miss the city. Damn - that place is the life"
"I love the hustle bustle and fight up to the top - if you're not living in the city, you don't know what life's about"

And its mine - Any time get what I need
And its mine - I'm at the center of the scene
And its mine - It's the only way to be

Walked into the camp, old pan hung from his faded pack
Said, "I've been living out of this thing for so long I can't look back"
"Relying on my legs and occasional hitch. I don't need much of nothing - phone is first thing that I ditched"

And its mine - I'm not a capitalist machine
And its mine - dumpster dive, eat like a king
And its mine - It's the only way to be

New City
Well I've been out riding down streets alone recently, singing new songs in my head
This new city, new light, refreshing humidity - singing for somebody else

And it's working out to be nothing but best for us, spending some time on ourselves
Dream to those nights, all those things that you cooked for me - you're cooking for somebody else

I found someplace new and I like how it feels to me, the pace and the taste and the smell
If I leave now it will be a new end for me - same as everywhere else

So I'm here for good until it's no good; can disappear without a trace
And when I think back on the things that I stood for - see I'm standing in the same place

Same Big Ring
I don't know better what you need, 'cause everybody's floating on the same big ring
and it's a sure fire way to go out - would you figure it out? Would you?

And it's a hard question - clutters the mind. When everybody's slacking, stuck to their side
and it's a trite and childish way to decide. Could you leave it behind? Could you?

This is childish, nothing to wrap around my mind

I don't know better what you've seen, 'cause everybody's looking at a different thing
And it's a sure method to think that you're right. Do you think that it's right? Do you?

This is childish, nothing to wrap around my mind
