Track Name: organic robots
Every town looks the same as the next
Within these state lines at best
Try to find yourself a home worth the drive
Would it be rare to find an end
Find the clones of your friends
Leave them with the places you've been
Location, location, location

We all are just organic robots
Chemicals and sparks beneath our frames
Programmed into motherboard earth
Equations compete for our patience

Computers blowing up
In synchronized routine
But the calendar turns and
The cursors still pulse on their screens
Pretend that in the back of my mind
I never worried once
But even if you catch my lie
You won't call my bluff

We all are just organic robots
Chemicals and sparks beneath our frames
Programmed into motherboard earth
Equations compete for our patience

When we all burn down
We'll just be carbon in the end
When we all burn down
We'll be carbon in the end

We all are just organic robots
Chemicals and sparks beneath our frames
Programmed into motherboard earth
Equations compete for our patience
Track Name: pirouette
If I should wish the mirrors to life
Your reflections multiplied
On pointed toes and body's lines
Move through hands italicized

All in hopes that the feathers from your back
Fallen for quills will write my name
Dance across the lines on an empty page
In pirouettes onstage

Her bones broken so beautifully
Rearranged in a disarray
Even as our mother’s craft
Failed to put so into place

Penmanship in perfect form
Strokes leaving the paper torn
Twists up her words like a coquette
Wound up in a pirouette
Track Name: new years
You may have stumbled on top of me
When I was sleeping on your couch
But I was the one who was falling
I was already down

When you were crashing your bicyle
I picked you up off of the ground
I couldn't have been far away from you, love
I was already down

Tug at your skirt
Tap at your shoulder
Just to hold your attention
Just for a moment

When you never see me when you look around
From your parascope atop your high horse
Just beneath your nose
I was always down
Track Name: with the switch
No matter what I say, don't stop
No matter what I say, don't stop
No need for safety words
One for the lie and one to curse,
My fingers were crossed

I'll try to make you let go,
I'll try but don't even loosen your grip
Don't hesitate, don't blink, don't flinch,
Don't buy in when I did
And I'm convinced

With the switch, we're evened out
With the switch, we're evened out

It won't be easy, no one said it would be
But do this for me

No matter what I say, don't stop
No matter what I say, don't stop
Track Name: halfhearted
Weigh in the pros
Count down the days
The cons pushed aside
Waved to and fro
Then went away
You were so excited

I'm sticking with the ones I know best
But you can be so convincing
Appellant for change, take a rest
But you can be so convincing

I couldnt get over the fact
The weekends' emptiness
I'd hold my tongue and play along
Like i'd be fine

Drift to the floor at your feet
You cut your losses with your hair
Sweep me up, won't you collect me again

I'm sticking with the ones I know best
But you can be so convincing
Appellant for change take a rest
But you can be so convincing

I'm glad to see it looks good on you
I'm glad to see you
It's my turn, i've turned to you

I'm sticking with the ones I know best
But you can be so convincing
Appellant for change, take a rest
But you can be so convincing

Tell them how you really feel
It can't be unsaid
Apologized, you cleared your head
It can't be unsaid
Track Name: double knots
Tonight she's had a few
Got her feet still in her boots
Careful laces became loose
From her mouth, spilled out the truth

Said I love you on the phone
Laugh it off like its a joke
No harm from it would come
And no one will ever know

The only one I'm fooling tonight will be myself
If I try, well it can't hurt, but it probably won't help

Double knots threw me off for a loop
But I came full circle, back to you
Spin me 'round 'til my face turns blue
I will come full circle, back to you

took my hand and went to bed
I tried to sleep but never did
I couldn't close my eyes
So I looked at her instead

By the morning she'd forgotten
About the words we had exchanged
And so we carried on as if
Nothing at all had changed

The only one i'm fooling will always be myself
If I try, well, it can't hurt, but it never seems to help

Double knots threw me off for a loop
But I came full circle, back to you
Spin me 'round 'til my face turns blue
I will come full circle, back to you

(Here we go!)

Double knots threw me off for a loop
But I came full circle, back to you
Spin me 'round 'til my face turns blue
I will come full circle, back to you
I will come full circle, back to you
Track Name: we have outgrown our innocent skins
When all your childhood sits
In an old shoebox in the closet
For a size that supposedly fit so long ago
Wrap with care in tissue, tuck away for safe keeping
Suppressed it's best a secret
Pressed inside the sneakers
My toes were cramped and folded
Like notes we had exchanged
Corners bent, we cut them
I'm sad to see them go

We have outgrown our innocent skins
And shed them from our bones
We shed them from our bones
We don't even know why our lives are spent
Searching for our homes
When it's right where we were born

Housed a diorama, a gradeschool book report
You said you liked the man taped inside the walls
A world we had created with scissors, crayons, and paper
I didn't think twice until now

We have outgrown our innocent skins
And shed them from our bones,
We shed them from our bones
We don't even know why our lives are spent
Searching for our homes
When it's right where we were born

Right under our noses, Right where we were born

We have outgrown our innocent skins
And shed them from our bones...
We don't even know why our lives are spent
Searching for our homes...

We have outgrown our innocent skins
And shed them from our bones
We shed them from our bones
We don't even know why our lives are spent
Searching for our homes
When it's right where we were born

Oh, how we've grown,
How we've grown apart
Track Name: off and running
Set off and running
Carry the last of your legs
I was made built to break

Set off and running
Fasten a longing excuse
Let's not make this seem more charming than it is

Set off and running
Outlast the words I don't say
Until your hear once and for all

Set off and running
A testament to the inside
And I found all that is mine, but that is all
