Dramamine Lyrics
Traveling, swallowing Dramamine
Feeling spaced, breathing out Listerine
I'd said what I'd said that I'd tell you
And that you'd killed the better part of me
If you could just milk it for everything
I've said what I'd said and you know what I mean
But I still can't focus on anything
We kiss on the mouth but still cough down our sleeves
Traveling, swallowing Dramamine
Look at your face like you're killed in a dream
And you think you've figured out everything
I think I know my geometry pretty damn well
You say what you need so you'll get more
If you could just milk it for everything
I've said what I said and you know what I mean
But I can't still focus on anything

Breakthrough Lyrics
I got one, two, three, four
Five, six, six, six
Running around the neighborhood
Perjorative, "Jinx"
He said the groom's down on me
Because he ate the rice
It was well intentioned but bad advice
Hell yeah, yeah, yeah

Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough
Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough
Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough
Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough

Open the curtain and let in some sky
It's almost half past two, and you can tell by the light
Open your window, and let in the atmosphere!

Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough
Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough
Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough
Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough

Open the curtain and let in some sky
It's almost half past two, and you can tell by the light
Open your window, and let in the atmosphere!

Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough
Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough
Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough
Let it breakthrough, oh, let breakthrough

I was inverted, I mean converted
I mean I don't understand

Custom Concern Lyrics
The custom concern for the people
Build up the monuments and steeples to wear out our eyes
I get up just about noon
My head sends a message for me to reach for my shoes and then walk
Got to go to work, got to go to work, got to have a job

Goes through the parking lot fields
Didn't see no signs that they will yield and then thought
This'll never end, this'll never end, this'll never stop

Message read on the bathroom wall
Said, "I don't feel at all like I fall"
And we're losing all touch, losing all touch, building a desert

Might Lyrics
I might
And you might
But neither of us do, though
And neither of us will
I broke every bone in my goddamn jaw
That's a lot, it's the last one I ever got
I might
And you might
But neither of us do, though
And neither of us will
Yesterday night I broke every bone in my jaw
Thought so hard, it's the last thing I ever thought

Lounge Lyrics
He don't remember how it got there
It had a number written on his forearm
It spelled disaster
All hoping, all hoping for dancing
He was looking, and looking stunning
His clothes reflected light, all right
She sat, she sat in the backseat
The car was plush but had no heat
And no, not no one was blushing
Their technique was so damn right
All right, and
He read the note in the black light
He thought he read minds and was not right
That line still made him seem charming
His clothes were shining, shining

Beach Side Property Lyrics
"Wow!" said the broken Californian down
On the beach that used to be by the beach
Town hasn't moved but's getting closer, losing ground
Making better views and close relaxing sounds
Ground sure don't like the way it's treated so now
It's moving back to the sea
Plan to hitch a ride with the river
Because deep down plumbing life is too cramped for me
I got wood legs and bow legs and no legs at all
Goddamn! Would you accept a collect call?
Oh no, I don't understand
I got poor eyes and sore eyes and no eyes at all
Goddamn! Would you like to take a fall?
No I don't like this plan
It was a staple of brass tacks and waxed backs
A memo left on the forehead of God
Sent sealed and signed by the saints who sang this song:
"We're going union like they say
We'll buy the congregation
Then one day, you'll find us sitting
In your chairs with big ideas of stocks and shares"

Head South Lyrics
A surf rock band from the land of plenty
Surf rock bands with no surf, just pine trees
Start by being ashamed of your old space
Just wanting that mean heat
You bleached your hair and you pawned your skis
And then you sold out for the shade of the palm tree scene
And said, "Oh, what a drag!
Oh, what a backwards scheme!"
Because here things go from grey to grey and back to grey again
And they get green and go to grey and go back to grey again
So he said

"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"

Struck by being ashamed of your old space
Just wanting that mean heat
You bleached your hair and you pawned your skis
And then you sold out for the shade of the palm tree scene
Sit around in cut-off jeans and cut-off jeans are
What you mean when you say

"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"
"Head south!"

Dog Paddle Lyrics
A massive moon
A jumped-up ape
I kiss the earth and choke
and make it to Gatwick
with a drill
and ten red roses
I slip and fall
A banana skin
Break out my heart
Only waving
This night's fine
and all is fair
in love
and the war within me raging
You kill me off in theory
Yhen you pardon me for breathing
Yhe sweet smell of the street
It was so forgiving

I threw everything at you
My misery, my joy and truth
My haemorrhaging time
You probably don't remember me
Et in Arcadia ego
My feelings did so very much for you

I threw nearly everything at you
My misery, my joy and truth
My haemorrhaging time
and my piecemeal grief
and all I was in other eyes
I described it as I did
I tried to find the words to buy you
Mut through to your pretty bones like kindness

Mou didn't love me with a vengeance
It was always coming true
Am I lucky to be alive, my friend?
I've been expecting you

You probably don't remember me
The bad old days and so on
Back when there was something wrong with love
Little room, jumped-up ape
I kiss the floor and joke
"You're not the only child round here"
In seaweed paint I dance for you
round the ruins, round the view
The Helen & Menelaus Snack Bar
Then you killed me off in theory
Et in Arcadia ego
My feelings did so very much for you

The pain is so extraordinary
This pain in all its story tells me
pain's the best all purpose preservative
You were one of my better creations
Everything's permitted I hereby swear
I cannot change this is how I see it
In these words not other words
nor at other times nor otherwise
nor otherwise nor otherwise

You didn't love me with a vengeance
It was always coming true
Am I lucky to be alive, my friend?
I've been expecting you

Novocain Stain Lyrics
When I can work out how it was
Then I'll tell you
TV stained my memories, yeah
I don't think it shows
Remember through sounds
Remember through smells
Remember through colors
Remember through towns
With fear and fascination
On what was here
And what's replacing them now
Interchange causes a mall
And crowded chain restaurants
More housing developments go up
Named after the things they replace
So welcome to Minnow Brook
And welcome to Shady Space
And it all seems a little abrupt
No, I don't like this change of pace

Tundra/Desert Lyrics
Every sick, fickle fucker
Childhood's what makes you
Until they treat you like tundra
Weigh those opinions
More like air than lead

Every planned occupation
Surefire disappointment up ahead
Until they treat you like desert
See mirages of friendship
Face turns red

Aw, shit!

(I don't feel and it feels fine
Save twenty dollars and I'll give you my supplies
I don't mind)

Here's the soon to be anchor
Build bridges to nothing, you'll get nowhere
(I don't feel and that feels fine
I don't feel and that feels fine)

Every governor's mother
Knows that their bread is buttered by Sam
(Crook takes
Crook takes green out of wallet)

And what about science?
They find proof and let you make your own decisions
(There are answers to our reasons
Worthwhile to find)

Every child star wonders
If they have a future up ahead
(King takes queen, takes queen out clean
It's all right, it's all right)

Every kind-hearted banker
I don't think there is one
(I took you out)

Every winning opinion
I wish I had one
(I took you out for a night on the town
I took my wallet out)

Every winning opinion
I, I wish I had one
(You don't mind?
Well now, that's just bullshit)

Stand on platforms in water
Filling jars full of silence, you'll get nowhere
(You're balancing balls on your nose, all right
I don't mind, I don't mind
So sometimes you want your own space
And that's all right, right?
Right)

(Get too creative ordering our drinks
And mine stinks, mine stinks
Get too creative ordering our drinks
And yours stinks, yours stinks, yours stinks
We get too creative
We get too creative)

Ohio Lyrics
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio

Took a bus straight to Baltimore
On the way he took a nap
Dropped off a note that said, "I'm giving this note back"
P.S. There's a lot going on underneath
There's roots, there's pipes, there's drainage leaks
You're on, you're wrong

Ohio
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio

Truly sorry, I see clearly
Calmly crashing, I pace faster than anyone
Hinges rusting, they swing louder than anything
Truly lonely, this place is flatter than it seems

I'm upset and I leave the doors open wide
Our hearts are used up, cracked and dry
Pulled the scabs off of regrets
We haven't learned to read our conscience yet

Truly sorry, I see clearly
Hardy hoping, I spend it all on game machines
Calmly crashing, I pace and I figure out again
One hand clapping, awake but napping

Rows of lights to illuminate lines
Why don't they turn them off and let us see night
Drove crazed, grooming my lies
You can't look in on one way eyes

Ohio
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio
Ohio

Exit Does Not Exist Lyrics
Does not exist, take an exit
I hear voices insinuating
Feeds me lyrics to this song that I am saying
Sunlight 7:20 PM, early September
Standing looking at a photograph
That you do not remember being taken
You look out of breath, and me like I am faking
As a matter of fact, I don't recall this photo being taken
You don't even actually exist so I just started shaking
Does not exist, take an exit

Talking Shit About A Pretty Sunset Lyrics
Oh, noose
Tied myself in, tied myself too tight

Looking kind of anxious in your cross-armed stance
Like a bad tempered prom queen at a homecoming dance
And I claim I'm not excited with my life anymore
So I blame this town, this job, these friends, the truth is it's myself
And I'm trying to understand myself and pinpoint who I am
When I finally get it figured out, I've changed the whole damn plan

Oh, noose
Tied myself in, tied myself too tight
Oh, noose
Tied myself in, tied myself too tight

Talking shit about a pretty sunset
Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon
Changed my mind so much I can't even trust it
My mind changed me so much I can't even trust myself

Make Everyone Happy/Mechanical Birds Lyrics
And I said you shouldn't make facts out of opinions
He said that I was right
You're right, I knew that I was
And I'd hate to see anybody fail
But I'd like to see you fail saying thank you, though
I'm not sure who I am
I'm not sure who I am but I know who I've been
And I said you can't make everybody happy
He said you'd like to at least make yourself happy though
I'm not sure who I am
I'm not sure who I am but I know who I've been

Space Travel Is Boring Lyrics
Won herself a pass to some far off moon
It was second class but what's to lose?
And looking out her window she could more than assume
That you can't see air or time
She's the only rocketeer in the whole damn place
They gave her a mirror so she could talk to a face
She still got plenty lonely but that's just the case
With time, time, time
Started hearing voices sometime in June
She knew she could go crazy but didn't think that soon
Now she doesn't feel lonely but she'd just as soon
Try, try, try, try
Man shot to the moon
I read a paperback and want to go real soon
I'm shot to the moon
Been there a half an hour, I want to come home soon
