Track Name: Anymore
we live in a world where the best is a test
and the worst can not be found for miles
cus we hide our mistakes we close the windows and doors
we don't even know what makes us smile, anymore

my friends say i'm running away from the good things in life
and i dont know what for
sometimes it's true i'm afraid of the good things
cus i know that they won't last, anymore

you're nice and i like that but i'm closing up
cus i worry that i will let you down
this mind of mine takes me all over the place
you'll see that's just how it goes, anymore

if you stick around
you'll see all the obstacles in my brain
if you stick around
you'll see i don't know a thing, anymore
Track Name: Gepetto's Song
we called the night with our songs
we called the day with our bodies
we did not stay very long in the light

you did the dishes in the morning
you made the coffee
you heard the sirens call from out of sight

gepetto knew his fairy with wings would soon come along
but on that island of pleasure all the words came out wrong

there was a suit parade passing by
and all of our weaponry was gone
but we had eggshell bombs to spare

soon after the guilt took over
and all of our names were on file
suddenly we were aware

gepetto knew his fairy with wings would soon come along
but on that island of pleasure all the words came out wrong
Track Name: Daydream Ditty
this city's just a little less pretty without you
this city's just a little more gritty when you're gone
but now you're moving on and you're playing our songs
and i'm here at home feeling blue

this ukulele's just a little more quiet without you
these songs i sing are just a little more lonely when you're gone
and i'm trying to let you go cus babe the world is your show
and no one can hold you down

i won't mope and i wont cry
or let this daydream ditty pass me by
but i will soar so high
you'll be missing me when i'm gone

this girl is just a little bit stronger without you
this story's just a little more simple when you're gone
oh and if you do come back don't you mess with me
cus now that i'm alone i can finally see

this lady's gonna go and have a good time without you
this honey's gonna make a lotta money when you're gone
cus i dont have the time to sit here and wine
and there's other fish in the sea

oh i won't mope and i wont cry
or let this daydream ditty pass me by
but i will soar so high
oh you'll be missing me when i'm gone
Track Name: Dollars
close your eyes and let the world slow down
the plastic skies in your lung
lick your lips until theirs nothin left
but photographs on your tongue

think of all the words filling up your mouth
the honey drop is almost gone
breathe in time deeper than before
this one will last beyond the dawn

you don't have to wait for it
you don't have to pay for it
anymore cus the dollars stick on their own

feel the floor with broken glass and beer
it doesnt cut the way it should
stretch your back until its inside out
and say the words you never could

drain the water cus its cold outside
and there are other ways to warm
and understand that i am just a child
and i have never meant you any harm

you don't have to wait for it
you don't have to pay for it
anymore cus the dollars stick on their own
Track Name: Hollowbody
Go tell your mother, go tell your father, go tell your sister, go tell your brother
That we are just friends, and we won’t pretend that we’ are in love
Take me to dinner but and offer to pay and kiss me goodnight and then walk away
Cus we are just friends, and we won’t pretend that we’ are in love

Cus I know youre hollow and I know youre dry
And I know you’ll follow without knowing why
So if youre not full of answers and questions
I’ve got to kiss your hollowbody goodbye

Ive seen you walkin out on the town youre takin a new girl out on your rounds
But you are just friends and you don’t pretend that you are in love
I’ve heard you talkin about someone new and I seen the way she looks at you
But you are just friends and you don’t pretend that you are in love

Cus I know youre hollow and I know youre dry
And I know you’ll follow without knowing why
So if youre not full of answers and questions
I’ve got to kiss your hollowbody goodbye
Track Name: Occupied By You
Theres a space in my brain and its never empty
Cus its always occupied by someone new
And I know we just met but oh this morning
that space Is occupied by you

I cant quite remember the things you said
In the doorway on your way out
But I think it was nice and I’m paying the price
Like a child without a doubt

even though i know you’re probably just like the rest
right now somehow i’m convinced that youre the best for me

Theres a space in my brain and its never empty
Cus its always occupied by someone new
And I know we just met but oh this morning
that space Is occupied by you
Track Name: Again
i can't believe what you say
wanna hear you but i don't know how
the souvenirs that you bought me are faded now

it's not so hard to fall
but i need a little push
got so tired of lettin go when i thought i should

why would i say it
when there's so many who've said it before
why would i say it again and again

i cross the bridge at the bay
catch the sun before it goes
i make it back and get out of my day job clothes

oh i'm in love with that city
but i need a little breath
cus i've been pouring my heart till there's nothin left

why would i say it
when there's so many who've said it before
why would i say it again and again
Track Name: This Is It
you remind me of someone i once knew
when days were younger and time was shy
and when we met they bet that we would last a long time
although we had not yet begun

you and i we may walk the roads together
but we end our nights alone

so take my hand and please tell me this is easy
tell me this will all change in time
cus though i'll give you all the space you need i will be bleeding
when you cut me with your nightly goodbyes

you and i we may walk the roads together
but we end our nights alone

so please be kind and don't say bad things about me
and please clear your mind of all these tears
cus if you'll never want me with an open ended heart
this is it this is what we get... this is it this is all you get
