Track Name: Glad
All the roads are blocked, the snow has no desire
To give in to our tires. Let's see what's on TV.
Music videos by the inventor of the french horn
With a bachelor's in soft porn from 1993.

It's hard to see, surrounded by all the screens,
Fuck, we're stuck

Listening to Angel Olsen in your car
Conversation constellations and green tea in a mason jar
Highways and narrow roads every Sunday at 4
I never felt so glad to have been born

And there ain't no needles in my eyes now -- I'm driving

Let's welcome our next guest! She comes straight from California,
She has to kids and a hernia, and she's got her eyes on the prize!
In other news today: young folks protest the existence
Of cranberries and raisins -- let the nation hear their cry:

"You can't write raisin without writing sin!
Cranberries are the fruit of Satan!
You can't write raisin without writing sin!
Cranberries are the fruit of Satan!"


It's hard to see, surrounded by all the screens,
Fuck, we're stuck

Listening to Angel Olsen in your car
Conversation constellations and green tea in a mason jar
Highways and narrow roads every Sunday at 4
I never felt so glad to have been born
Listening to Angel Olsen in your car
Conversation constellations and green tea in a mason jar
Highways and narrow roads every Sunday at 4
I never felt so glad to have been born

And there ain't no needles in my eyes now -- I'm driving
Track Name: In Green & Blue
Waiting for the red sun to rise
Patience and pain painted in your eyes
21 shoes, rhythm 'n' blues in you
(I always dance alone)
Dirty one two's digging this music
(I can't seem to push me away)
It's always you making the rooms bloom

There's no place I'd rather be, no place, no time, I'm satisfied
('cause I realize)
There's no face I'd rather see, we don't pay no mind, no fee,
In green and blue

Daisy-chaining violets to keys
Let the rain ring its violent love, please
88 long steel strings 8 shorter ones
(shaking for you)
Recreate long-gone stings and have your fun

When I'm waiting 'round caught in vapor thoughts
Cherry-tasting and eating apricots
It's always you making the rooms bloom

There's no place I'd rather be, no place, no time, I'm satisfied
('cause I realize)
There's no face I'd rather see, we don't pay no mind, no fee,
In green and blue

There's no place I'd rather be, no place, no time, I'm satisfied
There's no face I'd rather see, we don't pay no mind, no fee,
In green and blue
Track Name: Intimacy
I think I'm obsessed with the rainbows
That formed around my sleepless eyes
Your hand on my chest, at an angle
Removing every disguise

Our bodies are blessed, and the minutes
Are flowing from our fingertips
You're the one I love best, our intimacy
Shakes me, brings me so much bliss

I see my seven shadows swimming in your light, your light
I could get high just on the way you move at night

I can't defend myself anymore
You paint and bend my heart and soul with
The way you move, the way you move makes me wanna
Dance in your grooves, dance in your grooves

Our glasses are blurred, and darkly
We stare at our silence
Our love's most vivid colors
Are tenderness and violence

O life of the flesh, O infinite
Darkness in my solar days,
Perpetual flames in your rhythms
Resonating in our heads

I see my seven shadows swimming in your light, your light
I could get high just on the way you move at night

I can't defend myself anymore
You paint and bend my heart and soul with
The way you move, the way you move makes me wanna
Dance in your grooves, dance in your grooves
Track Name: Lie
Lie down, you've had a long day
The sparks are on their way
You lie to yourself about the projects, ambitions,
And ideas you say you'll get to
One day

They talk to you in mysterious ways
But you can't think of anything real to say
You drink, smoke, think you can cope,
Every time you blink your brain loses some hope
You purple heart, you beautiful mess,
You'll fix it when you're hurting less
One day
Track Name: Cut Short
All things go in a cardboard box
All the memories between our thoughts
Always receding, "come on we're leaving"
Always taking your final breath

But I can't help but think of what
Could have happened of time that was cut short
And it fucks me up
Oh look, the sun is up
Once again

Time is passing me by like wind
My surroundings just spin, spin, spin
Down in this valley, this hollow gallery,
Where my memories dance without me

As the words fall in out of order
As the light makes my head feel sorta
Heavy now, at least we're moving now
Once again
Track Name: Rise, Part I - Performance
Fuck, I didn't eat dinner
Fuck, I should've had something
Fuck, I hope I don't faint or vomit on the crowd
Plug me in let's get started
Are we tuned, are we good?
Can you tell from my voice that I'm losing my mind

Green, purple, yellow, crimson
All the nerves in my spine
Are boiling and telling me that I'm alive
The air is thick as an ocean
The strings are sharp as knives
Let's put this fucker in motion and rise
Track Name: Rise, Part II - Moon
We've all got a pain we can't name
A fear that won't disappear

Now I can't speak for you all
But as far as I'm concerned
The music staves off my hurts

When it's good
It calls in the herds
Of demons and birds

The dissonances in my mind
The resolution in your eyes
We start dancing under the fireflies
The night is smiling, our moon is on the rise
Track Name: I've Got Your Back
You're not alone, oh no
I've got your back, I do
Tell me what you want me to sing and I will

I'm by your side, for you
I've got your back, yes it's true, I do
Help me help you levitate through threnodies and blues

I've got your back
Track Name: Sunday, July 24th
Sunday, July 24th
Slowly walking westward and slightly north
I can't write for shit
And the sun shines a bit
Too much today to try

Dropped my smartphone on the pavement
Is this art or entertainment?
I think too much about my mythology

I maximize the distance
Between me and other citizens
And I stare at their dogs for a while

Now I'm floating in this park
And a saxophone lights a spark
But my body's kind of stiff
I think it'll be ok if
I just wait until July 25th

I'll do better on July 25th
Track Name: Dreams Of Flying
I'm in a room
Just sitting silent in a room
And I'm dreaming
I percolate
Through the window
Tonight I'm flying

I wave my arms
I wave my arms around me
And it's working
My body's weightless
Between the pine trees in this
Lucid dream

Dreams of flying, dreams of flying
Dreams of flying, dreams of flying

*alarm rings*
