Track Name: Scarless
you were discarded like something disgusting
and maybe you were but at least you were trusting
of children who dressed like they could be your father
if i were you i'm not sure that i'd bother
with detox and doctors and roots of the problems
those memories are easily drowned out without caution
you told me your name but i just can't remember
i'd call to say sorry but you'd never answer

and i knew you when you were scarless
the cars hissed past
we listened in silence

now i wake up trembling and wondering where i am
you wake in the peace of the space right beside him
there's no charity of a cursory thought
coming my way but don't think i miss what i lost
because these scars that we share and reveal so unmodestly
grant us the right to behave so erratically
a right i would trade for no amount of currency
given my resources our time is a blur to me

and i knew you when you were scarless
the cars hissed past
we listened in silence
Track Name: Parallel Lines
you see a man you see children and dollar signs
the earth shook and the water turned into wine
that you drank and then dreamed of parallel lines
that won't cross no matter how hard they may try

i won't always be here to tell you that face in the ceiling ain't real
i won't always be here

broken and bromide there's just something about them you loathe
you wake up they make it easy to keep your eyes closed
there's a fire in you they put out a long time ago
heavy handed but it's something someone should know

i won't always be here to tell you that face in the ceiling ain't real
i won't always be here
Track Name: As Your Cover
darling you've been drinking i can smell it on your sweat
and the sheets and i share you with at least one other lover
but you keep on swearing that you're gonna kick the habit
i pretend i believe you the response is automatic

i can hear you talking on the phone in the bathroom
running water as your cover
i could use a drink myself
there's nothing sacred about this ritual lack of logic

objectiveness discarded when you ask to use my car
for the night i oblige as i picture it in pieces
by the side of the highway while the vodka and your blood
stain the seats and your lover waits concerned he's been discovered

untenanted and unbrave hearts
are drowning madly like a thousand novice swimmers
we sleep like killers serving time
you mutter something i pretend i wasn't listening
Track Name: Two Ways
i was shaking like a stuck drum
when the time comes you won't have to wonder why
outside your temperamental dad's house
in a borrowed car we learned to be adults

learned to touch and drink and smoke what we could smoke
i talked you out of faith and then i let you go

walls that won't return the flashlight
i say whatever culpability is mine
there's two ways to make something seem smaller
make it smaller or make everything else tall

maybe you'll think of me when the tall begin to fall
or maybe forgive me for settling on being small
