Track Name: Fine Dining
oh here comes that beautiful rush of air
brightening lungs, salt idling on the one
split the liters, dine on, its cut and run
two boys toast standing tall on a foreign coast
hope we make it back

oh to find us snaking between the stares
nothing but still corn in a coffee cup
hoping the lot of us aren't buried by the world
cans and stray hands won't ever find you a heart of gold
can i get you back?

oh between the wires gasping for a little air
only if you dare -- hold me

on your own, in the throws
on your own, paint it gold
Track Name: Lucky
‘cause i am the luckiest little motherfucker

alive in my soul, but there's blood in your spit
and go baby go baby go. isn't it shit?
swallow my luck, find a friend with it
and go baby go baby go. the bottle is wicked
paint your eyes, get a pinch of your ass
and go baby go baby go. its a ladder of dick
if the neon sun, is shimmering fast
well go baby go baby go. the ending is quick

all of my friends here. well, we'll go and go go go
all of my loves, we don't stop

‘cause i am the luckiest little motherfucker
Track Name: Make Out
cigarettes will make you love, well i don’t want to get the love
and i just want to get fucked and fall in
take me, take me, take me please. if whiskey calms my shaky knees
if ever it’s time to get loved, then get loved

we get lost swimming out
pull me by the wrist
fingers, tongues, and islands
make it out, make it out, make out
Track Name: Foxes
the fox will kill the lucky ones – light my cigar
it’s blood in the suburbs, picnic in the yard
i never wanted it to go that far
no, i never wanted it to go

we're left lusting for the mornings yet, of the reckless and the wild again
and the photos bring me back to bed, ‘cause i remember when we were young and wet
feed the animals
Track Name: Everybody Knows
mark me the burdened young, earnest and tight lunged
the days drift listless, all because...
everybody knows

some time's come undone
wake to champagne and the sun
filter through the lace and waste the day…
everybody knows
Track Name: Captain
so mad, don't ya know we're hollow?
big fish in the waves, over to planet rose
throats crack in the strain, the light show
burn down and we're growin' and we're grown

so mad, who to call, to begin again?
sit back, breathing in, watch the chorus blend
pined on, they're all gone, relent and
burn down and we're growin' and we're grown
Track Name: Believers
i saw you walking by the sun
fine lines skip, blur in the summer sprawl
this time we'll laugh and hope that they're wrong
they'll find us passed out on the lawn

i saw you walking by the sun
salt lines light up like miracles
i'm up for binges and debts and new guns
i'm up if we are the only ones

in the sun, i'm in love, in the sun

i said, “i kind of like ya”
hands up, the gardens make believers
keep quiet, hiding from the teachers

i find the beauty of the fire wakes me
obsession is a liar
i know, i gotta be in the sun

in the sun, in the sun, i'm in love, in the sun
Track Name: Carousels (Part I)
youth wants for carousels and crooked teeth
met by wedding bells and fine relief
crawl asleep with sunshine stealing me
lost in the finer things and make believe

we're thinning baby, but still gold
spin, the days will change
well i don't give a damn at all
cause you'll always be the same
Track Name: Kids
mother told me to let go, get lost in the silhouettes of old
repeat it, "i don't know.” hat racks into peach trees grow
fickle fingers flutter so as i blush from the smell of her cologne
fight the feeling we're all alone, we're all alone now

nights spent with the good ones -- strangers to the mornings and regimens
repeat it, "she's come undone." shift hips in unison
swim skinny in photos, soon we'll all be better, don't you know?
fight the lump swelling in your throat; swallow it, swallow it, swallow it, swallow it

in days, i know, it hurts, and it goes

in the flicker cigarettes light the scene
is it love now?
dancing pirouettes while we dream
we scream, “we are the strong kids”
no faith, this is what we all did

nah nah, nah nah, no, we will pretend
we will fight, we will fight, this is not the end
Track Name: Run for the Night
shimmer in gaslights
like minds go mad tracing stray hemlines
twist your limbs, pull tight
your bones press to keep my bones in line
the black that frames your eyes
like vines, keep running, slip down and dry
lose your heels tonight
gone now and god, i hope we survive

stumble in to my world, i still want you back
bowing into the sea, lost baby to the black
stumble in to my world
well, i will find a way – i will get you back

run for the night
oh i gotta catch you, borderline
oh i gotta catch you, in the world, in the world, in the world
i’m alive, i’m alive, i’m alive
Track Name: Carousels (Part II)
crawl asleep with clothes on feeling free
lessons with you are self-indulgent at least
flicker now, brighten before you leave
the men who walk in suits will carry me
