Track Name: The Things I'm Not S'posed To Do
I do all the things I'm not s'posed to
Like eat sweets, stay up late, loaf around, and procrastinate
I do all the things I'm not s'posed to
But the worst of all is I miss you

There's a lot of things I forget to do
Like wear a helmet, save your seats, and stop thinking about you
I was raised right they said "Now listen you
Sit up straight, memorize the states, and come back before curfew"
There they taught me just what to do
But I didn't hear a word of it I was daydreaming of you

So I do all the things I'm not s'posed to
Like eat red meat, shuffle my feet, and sleep in the living room
And I know its bad to keep missing you
But I was never taught so I'll never learn
I just don't know how not to.
Track Name: Your Room
I like your room when you are in it
Perched on the chair beside the closet
The dresser is stained by your green thumb
Which impetuously gathers roots lonesome

I like your room when I am in it
Sprawled on bedsheets, gently skylit
I trace eggshell cracks on the white wall
As you walk on long feet down the hall

I like your room when we’re together
Your arms wind round me like a tether
Hiding your face amid threads of gold
You breathe my name into me threefold

Ooh ooh ooh

I like your room when we are in it
And all around us is a vignette
As you strike my tongue like a fresh match
And press in close so the flames can catch
Track Name: Spiders And Liars
Are the spiders friends? Are the spiders foes?
Do the spiderwebs keep us in our clothes?
Oh no, oh no no

Will you love me once? Will you love me twice?
Will you love me when I'm not being so nice?
Oh no, oh no no

Well I can't forget , but you can't remember
what you said to me in late December
Oh no, Oh no no

And the other day when I saw that spider
And he told me that you are a liar
Oh no, say it ain't so

Please don't lie to me
When I'm with you I feel happy
So please don't lie to me
K-I-S-S-I-N-G you is where I want to be

Are the spiders friends? Are the spiders foes?
Do the spiderwebs keep us in our clothes?
Oh no, I don't know
Track Name: Motel Room
In a motel room on a motel bed
Something lifted from the sheets
Regret as think as lead
And I carry it at night
Dirty tinsel of my dreams
And I hold it like the lint
Jammed in all my worn out seams.
Track Name: Ghost Song
I have a ghost that never leaves
We were in love, now he still haunts me
My ghost I feel so helpless so small
You used to catch the nightmares as they fall
Past my window, ones my dreamcatchers miss
Deep in slumber as the radiators hiss
Track Name: The Children Out Front
It's not so much the absence of your smile
Your teeth far to small for your mouth
Your eyelashes like ears of wheat, your canna colored hair
Your eyelashes like ears of wheat, your canna colored hair

It's the absence of these features on their faces
The absence of these features on their faces
It's the absence of these features on the faces
Of the young children playing in the yard

The young children playing in the yard
The young children playing in the yard
Without your smile, without your teeth, without your eyelashes of wheat
On the young children playing in the yard
Track Name: Traveling Song
I love you
More than I know what to do
And I get oh so blue
Whenever I'm without you

Do you travel by bike?
I promise I'll hold on real tight
Do you travel by car?
Let's drive together real far

I love you
More than I know what do
If you go can't I come too?
I'll go wherever you do

Do you have room on your boat?
I'll help you keep it afloat
Let's get two seats on a plane
And make sure our row is the same

I love you
More than I know what to do
I wish you'd never leave
Won't you stay close to me?
