Track Name: Perfect Impressions
To make a perfect impression, I’m ready to cool down, and tell my shallow heart to hide in shadows.
To make a perfect impression, I’m ready to believe into things I swore I’d never pay attention to.
I float around building an image of me as I have never even seen.
I wish I were no man who grows plastic flowers in jars.
I wish I were no man who’s afraid of library stairs.
I wish a man more humble than me were stuck in these shoes, misused.
To make a perfect impression I’m ready to behave, like a captain who would go down with his ship.
I float around building an image of me as I have never even seen.
I wish I were no man who grows plastic flowers in jars.
I wish I were no man who’s afraid of library stairs.
I wish a man more humble than me were stuck in these shoes, misused.
I’m a living ghost.
Track Name: Songbird
Take me away from this town. Take me to a place where the moonlight hits the ground.
Waltz with me until the sun comes up, brightening these fields where there’s no iron to rust
I want to hear you sing like a songbird, like years ago.
Take me to a place that you know. Take me to a place where your heart will glow.
Waltz with me until the sun comes up, reviving the sparks of our lost desire, our lost desire
I want to hear you sing like a songbird, like years ago.
Oh honey aren’t you the one who got wounds on her lips because her smile was so wide.
Oh honey you sure weren’t the one who got blood on her cheek because she cried out so loud.
So this feather girl, got afraid of my words. She took off from this haven. And I hope she’s alright.
Track Name: Needlefinger
This ain’t no body for my soul. I’m thinking there must be a reason for feeling disabled like I’ve felt so long. This was the body for my soul. Until something made my soul grow wrong. I’m leaning on you because you’re something I know much better than I know myself. Myself, this shell, that ain’t pretty, that ain’t smart, where there’s no diamonds, in its heart, in its heart.
And now there’s needles, in my fingers, because I was cleaning, my messy being.
And I got needles into my fingers, while I was cleaning, what a mess.
This ain’t no body, this ain’t no soul, there ain’t no body, for this rotten soul.
This ain’t no body for my soul.
Track Name: Quiet Flower Bed
I can hear your fragile bones shatter in the wind. I wonder how would a storm affect you, you pretty little bird. So I’ve been building a monument for you with the fearful fur.
But I’m ahead of the time, and it’ll catch me up, it’ll force me to give head.
I’m a starving monster I’ll be starving until I’m dead. You’ll realize this monument was built for me instead of you. I hope one day you’ll find out what’s been hiding in my chest. When my thoughts are dust and my bones lay on a quiet flower bed.
Track Name: Waiter
I’m just a waiter, son of a sergeant, my head, bows down. As I am tracking, traces of the elder, I’m forced to go over my boarders.
So I’ve been reading, I’ve been teasing, me, myself and my thoughts, a bunch of fools. But now I could take you, all of you midgets, all of you fags and hoes and foes, I’d better go home
Row home.
Track Name: Path Too Narrow
Something in the way you, cast your glance on me.
Tells me there’s not much left. Where did I go wrong.
You should see straight through me, I lied about my love.
On my way back home where I’ll lie to you my love.
Things been turning out, ways I could not see.
Maybe you don’t care. I am not worth of much.
Maybe you don’t care. Things been turning out, ways I could not see
Track Name: Exhausted Lover
Exhausted lover, exhausted lover, exhausted love I cannot turn my eyes off you.
There’s no wrong action, there’s no direction, there’s no religion I could keep counting on.
And as these dark dark clouds, wipe out the light of stars, I wish I knew the art of travelling in faith.
And I’ve seen through these hopeless fears, I’ve seen through these misty fields, the crooked sky above, and the dead moon. And it leaves me alone, with this burden heavy as a mountain. In a cruel way, it feels alright. Exhausted lover, exhausted lover, exhausted love I cannot turn my eyes off you.
So, I should admit it, we were brought here by, those wicked forces. But I’ve seen it all. I’ve seen it all in a dream. And dream is all that is left, with a corpse of a man in my head.
We’re all strange creatures, one could say made of the love of God. Well I see us struggling here in a quite different light. Exhausted lover, exhausted love I cannot turn my eyes off you.
We’re all strange creatures, one could say made of the love of God.
Track Name: These Fields
These fields are beautiful, these fields are beautiful. I wonder if they will, I wonder if they will be staying that way.
Track Name: Petrified Forest
There were no clouds to be seen, because the sun was shot down by me.
And there were no rivers running down, because all the water was drunk by somebody else.
Now there’s a sorrow, and I’ve got to mourn it. Now there’s a sorrow, and I’ve got to mourn it.
And I assume it was you, who burned down that bridge. And I know you think I’m gonna build it up again.
But these woods ran out of trees and even sea is free of driftwood. But these woods ran out of trees and even sea is free of driftwood. And I’ve got no wooden piles to build it up again. And I’ve got no wooden piles to build it up again. And now there’s a sorrow and I’ve got to mourn it. Now there’s a sorrow and I’ve got to mourn it. That’s how it is.
Track Name: King Of This Land
Stay here with me at least, until I’ve fallen back to asleep.
There’s not a single word, that could raise my head up again.
I should have seen this all, coming on me but my eyes were closed.
This morning I was the king of this land, I had no one to talk to about the storms in my head.
So all the power fell right into these arms, and I left you with no choice. You said well done my love again.
Stay here for me at least, until I’ve fallen back to asleep.
There’s not a single word, that could raise my head up again.
This morning I was the king of this land. I had no one to talk to about the storms in my head.
So all the power fell right into these arms, and I left you with no choice. You said well done my love again.
Well done my love again, well done my love again. No one will come to me until I’ve learned how to behave, I’ve learned how to behave.
That’s something I cannot swallow. And it sticks to my throat like a ripped out fishbone.
Like a ripped out fishbone.
