Track Name: Low Light
Caught up to what's left of you today
You didn't have much of anything to say
Caught up to the rest of you today
You didn't have much of anything to say

EVEN WHEN YOU'RE LOW LIGHT
THEN YOU'RE SHINING JUST LIKE ME

It's sad to think that the therapist would say
It's time to spend some valued time away
It's sad to think our good friends had to say
It's time to spend some valued time away

EVEN WHEN YOU'RE LOW LIGHT
THEN YOU'RE SHINING JUST LIKE ME
Track Name: Kangaroos
And when the stars end
The movie sky is ice dark
You need a new friend
You can rewind, stop, start

CHORUS:
HEY YOU AND ROCKY RACCOON
YOU'VE GOT SOME DOPPLEGANGERS
YOU'RE A BECOMING UNRELIABLE SOURCE
ONE WHO COULDN'T LEAVE THEIR FEELINGS ALONE

And when the song ends
Your hoodie life is ice dark
You need a new friend
You can rewind, stop, start

BREAK 1:
I'm gonna smoke with the devil
And drink strange wine
Until the time has come
To take more time
I'm gonna have a cigar
With Mao Tse Tung
And then tell him that life
Is to get unsprung

BREAK 2:
How much time can you fix
Hey man, do you know who this is???
Track Name: Amy & Amy
Hey you try to be cool
When the summer comes
And you drive around downtown
And things are super good

WE'RE GROWING IN THE SUN
AMY & AMY
AND THE SUN IS OUR FRIEND
AMY & AMY
WE NEED TO HARVEST OUR FIELDS
AMY & AMY
WHILE THE MOON IS KIND

I remember the wagon wheel
In some backyard garden
And the sounds of neighbors and friends
Surrounding

BE KIND TO ALL LIKE MINDS
ONE DAY WE'LL KNOW WHAT WE'VE LEFT BEHIND
AMY AND AMY
I REMEMBER THE FIELD
I REMEMBER THE SIGN(S)
AMY AND AMY
LIKE SISTERS FROM A BROKEN SIGN
AMY AND AMY

IF YOU EVER GET YOURSELF UNDONE
IN A MIDWESTERN FIELD
THE SUN IS YOUR FRIEND
AND THE MOON IS YOUR FRIEND

WE'RE GROWING IN THE SUN
AMY & AMY
AND THE SUN IS OUR FRIEND
AMY & AMY
WE NEED TO HARVEST OUR FIELDS
AMY & AMY
WHILE THE MOON IS KIND
Track Name: Let It In
I'm never going to make you go out
I'll let you in
When your life is full of strangers
You see a friend

Never going to make you go out
I'll take you in
Life is full of wonders
You need a friend

You see I'm never going to make you go out
I'll take you in
When your life gets hard and times get dark
I'll take you in

You see life sometimes can heal you just fine
You've got to let it in
You see life sometimes can heal you sometimes
You've got to let it in

Life sometimes can heal you sometimes
You've got to let it in
Track Name: Funny Thing
IT'S A FUNNY THING
IT'S A FUNNY THING
IT'S A FUNNY THING
WHEN WE DON'T GET ALONG

Life went soft
Like a swivel seat
I took a shot from the rum gun
So somehow I could think

It was like a three door tank
A port for everyone
The therapist, priest and jesus
Now I'm under the sun

If you're loving my new stuff
Then we should dance and drink
This is the time for some surreal danger
Track Name: Glass Cat
LOOK UP
There's a light in the sky
There's a lot of my time
That's going to feel like mine
LOOK DOWN
It's a half glass of wine

CHORUS:
Glass Cat
Sometimes a heart can break like that
LOOK UP
Yeah that fast...

I can't mine my own gold
A broken glass cat can't be sold
To even Jesus George or Jane

Sure there are some problems
I'm not sure I'm going to solve them
But they're calling my name
And my hands are shaking

And when I'm seeing stars
That really aren't all there
Let's say they are
LOOK DOWN
They've got to be there
Friends after midnight
Track Name: I Feel Fangs
I'm feeling magical
It's not a false feeling like I had before
Like a feeling that I had before
I'm feeling magical

SOMETIMES I FEEL FANGS
LIKE THE SHADOW OF A SHADOW OF A BURNING FLAME
REACTION IS JUST THAT THING
LIKE THE SHADOW OF A FLAME BURNS LIGHT

The sun and the moon and stars
Are all in my drink
The evening sky is waiting for me

Instant reaction is just that thing
It's all over the streets
Like the shadow of a flame that burns at night
Trick or Treat

Sometimes I see Stars
When we're somewhere between the bedroom and mars
Track Name: Calamity Jane
No one's playing the dangerous games
You see the snow is the summer rain
Was it Alice at the last parade
or Calamity Jane

She's the kind of girl with charge in her head
About the tight she took the rebound
Was it Mary not quite addressed
or Calamity Jane

With the kind of look that makes you dead
Hey you're a pine living in the ground
Was it Lesley in an Ariel dress
or Calamity Jane

No one's playing the dangerous games
You see the snow is the summer rain
Was it Alice at the last parade
or Calamity Jane
