Track Name: Thrill
It's a friendly war
But it's a fight anymore
For the words
Time for a thrill

To be honest is okay
But couldn't we stand to move a bit easier?

It's a battle lost
And all is quiet on the front
Bent your will
Time for a thrill
Track Name: Delta Waves
when the odds are unkind
and the spark don't ignite anymore
beg for tomorrow and rest your head
naturally, you'd rather be a somnambulist instead

ribs of the birds ring 'round fingers
forsaken unkind
salt of the earth that shimmers
turning their blinds

still a yard to unwind
shave the bark, bend the spine further more
as you lay out the scenes of your tourniquet
you're wearing out, you're tearing out your seems instead

ah - slow wave sleep stage
Track Name: Losing Teeth
one summer we broke our backs
painting the shutters red
it was hot as hell but just as well
cause that's where we were livin' then
and how could we have known any better?
paint drips into cracks over time
we were steadily glueing the seems together

how could we have known any better?
when they're callin for rain
we say "fuck the day" weather or not
i lose sleep when i dream about seeing you
catching your plane
get away to a better view

but it's only for a little while
i'll be home soon
