Track Name: It's Just a Little Time
Smoking the day away
By the river, by the bay
I just need you to stay
But it's better off this way

I know it's just a little time
Before you are once again all mine
Still it's killing me inside
Don't want to have to say goodbye

So hurry back, OK?
At the airport I will be
To kiss you on your mouth
And play the games I missed today
Track Name: Ballad of Narcissus and the Lost Cowboy
Where you want to go?
I don't care, I get to daydream anyway
Where you want to fuck?
I don't care, I get you inside me

Let's just fuck all night

Who you want to be?
I don't know, I'm just a cowboy on the search
Who you want to be?
I don't know, I'm missing Neptune and it hurts

Let's just hold on tight
Till the day we die

I have never known a place to go
Until you found me here
I have never known where I'm from
Until you showed me where

Let's just fuck tonight
Let's just hold on tight
We will be alright

Where you want to go?
I don't care, I get to daydream anyway
What you want to do?
I don't care, just want to be with you

Till the day we die
Kiss me and hold me tight
Till the day I die
We will be alright
Track Name: Kaleidoscope
Tell me about it, man!
I need direction, too
This little speck of blue
The magnets all screwed

Tell me about it, man!
I'm fucked up, too
Can't make a friend
Can't love right
Can't mend

Tell me about it, man!
Tell me about it, man

Moon sets on my bed
Open up and take it in
Facing pillows, blinded
Open up and leave it in

Kaleidoscope hearts
Kaleidoscope bones
Kaleidoscope blood and rocket man loans
Rough sailor sailing the ocean I bleed
Kaleidoscope spit
Kaleidoscope dreams

Fire's blazing again
Burning deep beneath the soil
Cumming one into my head
Cumming three more 'round the bend

Let's get to the head
Let's get below
Kaleidoscope fucks beyond control
Give me your head between the walls
Of iron, rock and sweating falls

Kaleidoscope hearts
Kaleidoscope bones
Kaleidoscope blood and rocket man loans
Rough sailor sailing the ocean I bleed
Kaleidoscope spit
Kaleidoscope dreams
Track Name: Goodbye Gunman
It's like I'm betting on a losing hand
You're a liar, I'm your man
Drowning in your smile
And I'm betting on a losing hand

Remember when he held his gun to my head
And you said it would never happen again
And then you ran back to him again and again
And you told me it would never happen again

Remember the day he made up a name
And he followed us 'round
And he started a game
And then you found out that betrayal is key
And you told me it'd never happen to me

It's like I'm betting on a losing hand
You're a liar, I'm your man
Drowning here in your smile
And I'm betting on a losing hand

It's like I'm betting on a losing hand
Never been a winner
And I can stick this out again
'Cause I know you'll deal my winning hand
Track Name: Carol, No. 3
So call me Carol
I'll tell you a story
'bout boys and the girls who want them
So call me Carol
I'll tell you the way
To the ends of the world that I'm haunting
So call me Carol
I'll keep you beside me
And I'll tell you all my secrets
So call me Carol
I'll let you inside me
I'll let you have all your requests
Don't call me Carol
I'm not who you want me to be
Alone in my memories
Don't call me Carol
I'll tell your secrets
I'll break you up into pieces
So call me Carol
I'll tell you a story
'bout girls and the boys who love them
So call me Carol
I'll tell you the way
To the ends of the world that I'm haunting
Track Name: Promise Lullaby
I am only dumb as I allow
I knew the truth and still love you somehow
You have said the truth right from the start
You promised that you'd never break my heart
But time and time again I have allowed
My heart to be stomped into the ground
And now I don't know
And now I don't know the truth
Track Name: The Hangover Song
We've got two weeks to go
Before you leave me alone in this rabbit hole
We've got two weeks to count on
A few days to drown in and I'm missing you
The city takes my place until you're back again

So I'll wear your glasses to cover my eyes
From the shade of this town
I'll toss on a t-shirt, some old dirty shorts
And I'll wait around
Feel sorry for myself
It can't be no way else

Long nights of cocaine and booze
And laughing how we stole a clock
Hungover days playing video games
Wishing we weren't so down and out
I'll make it up someday
Just have my side today

Two weeks to go and it's killing me so hard
I want you to be home
Hungover days with a bag of cocaine
Wish I weren't so down and out
Track Name: Valentine
Four holidays in
And it's hard to begin where I'm at
I love you the same and more
Want you to know where I'm at

It's been half a year
And though rough sometimes
Dear, you should know
That you are the one
I'll think of when I'm done on this mortal coil

And I fear one day I will leave this world
And you won't be there at my side
It's selfish, I know, but you'll keep moving on
And I'll love you again when I'm back

Four holidays in
And it's hard to begin where I'm at
'Cause I love you the same and more
Want you to know where I'm at

And it's been half a year
And though rough sometimes
Dear, you should know
That you are the one
I'll think of when I'm done on this mortal coil

And I fear one day I will leave this world
Track Name: I Just Wanted Us to Be Good
If you knew then what you know now
Would you have told me then
That you loved the taste of my tongue in your mouth
That you loved the way my skeleton
Felt under my skin in your hands
Would the street wars, straight men
Cowboy and Indians
Mean everything you thought they did
I just wanted us to be good

If you knew what you know now
Would you still have played the same cards
Guess we're just too different
We always seemed to know that
You knew I was needy
Knew I would need you
But I can't write this again
I just wanted us to be good

Still here we are kicking and screaming
Two fucked up creatures in the world
We've been forgotten
You know you can depend on me
Why won't you just depend on me

If you knew what you know now
Would you have told me then
That you love the taste of my tongue in your mouth
And that you loved the way my skeleton
Felt under my skin in your hands
Would the street wars, straight men
Cowboys and Indians
Mean everything you thought they did
I just wanted us to be good

I just wanted us to be good
I just want us to be good
Track Name: I Know Yr Lies
Don't call me
Don't call my name
I know your lies
I know your lies
Just stay clear
Stay clear of me
Don't want you
You or your lies

Don't call me
Don't call my name
'Cause I know your lies
I know your lies
Just stay clear
Stay clear of me
Don't want you
You or your lies

Don't call me
Don't call me
I know you
You and your lies
Just stay clear
Stay clear of me
Don't want you
You or your lies

So don't call me
Don't call my name
I know all your lies
I know your lies
Just stay clear
Stay clear of me
Don't want you
You or your lies

So don't call me
Don't call my name
I know your lies
I know your lies
Just stay clear
Stay clear of me
Don't want you
You or your lies

Don't call me
Don't call my name
I know your lies
I know your lies
Track Name: Call Me When You Need Me
Call me when you need me, I'll be home
Chalking up the pavement with hope
Call me when you need me, I'm not gone
But I can't wait forever for a call
I'm falling apart in my bedroom in the dark

We just let it get so out of hand
Cigarette burned arms to be a man
Call me when you need me, I'll be home
Forty miles away or so
I'm finding the man in my bones here if I can

Shoot me to the stars, I'll be fine
Twenty years past Mars would be nice
Call me when you need me, I'll be out
Out here in my rocket spinning 'round
I'm flying away in my rocket out in space
Track Name: Home Videos
Plug in the VCR
And turn on those old home videos
Laugh at the little boy
Who knows not where he's going
What would we be if we knew
Just where we're going?
Watching those old home videos
Watching those old home videos

Rain falls on my window
I'm missing those old home videos
Left out in the middle
Where's the joke I'm missing?
Where would you be without
The boy who just went missing?
Watching your old home videos?
Watching your old home videos

I told you, I told you
I told you not to cry

They plug in their VCR
And turn on those old home videos
They laugh at the little boy
Who knows right where he's going
They wish their little boy knew
Right where he was going
Missing their old home videos

Rain falls on my window
I'm missing those old home videos
Left out in the middle
Where's the joke?
