Track Name: Pinstripe
let's set up a mirror
to discover what reflects
i'll put on all my facades
now here's a pillow
smother out all the stray faces
it goes on and on
the sin and whiskey chasers
if another time
you regard your inhibitions
remember you left them behind
deep in the broad yukon
deep in the broad yukon

can we take a picture
to remember the events
that turned the tide
nobody caused
swim into the shallows
cover over the indecencies
with troubled remarks
surging out in parts:

let's become who we really are
i forget sometimes that i'm
stuck in the middle some
kind of witness in dismay

see through your disguise
fool no one with your lies

we can't deny
we can't deny
we breathe the air
from the same sky

we can't deny
we can't deny
we breathe the air
from the same sky

we haven't tried
we haven't tried
if we won't talk
slim chance we'll have
the strength to walk

if you go it alone
there can be no solo
to confront the past
is harder than hell

you bought a lie
we bought the lie
so fabricate
an alibi

we can't deny
we can't deny
we breathe the air
from the same sky
Track Name: Gone To Shit
well the world is going to shit
do you give a shit about it
we moved into the woods
to try to forget about it

well it's not like you
never cared before
this time it just shows somehow
well it's not like I cared before
but it's time to start now

Well a one-two punch
another knockout fight
is this really worth it babe?
so i put on my gloves
and i take one for you and then
i take one for myself

you're either on the bus or
you're off the bus
it's a choice you've got to make
so get on the bus
get on the bus
get on the bus

we set sail ten years ago
today's the day we fight
build it up we'll burn it down
this ship is only so long
this ship is gonna sail on
Track Name: Natural Orders
So
is it that i pissed you off
no, you didn't make me mad enough

I don't know how the arguments start
and I don't know how to stop
If I only knew how to play the part
that was written in books decomposed long ago

wish I'd thought ahead
enough to contemplate
the pause between your sentences
guilty on all counts

can't believe i tried
examining the sordid parts
what good does it do
to unveil the airs

I don't know how the arguments start
and I don't know how to stop
but if you hurry
we won't have much to worry

Oh my god another one's left unkempt
Bled dry for all their worth
Ya ask the people
get what they deserve
God damn why won't this work

Oh my god another one's left unkempt
Bled dry for all their worth
Ya ask the people
get what they deserve
next time this will work

won't you stay tonight my dear
oh won't you stay
my dear
Track Name: Playing the Blue Recluse (PBR)
I've got the back of my hand laid out
some slight sort of plan I'll have to
make up as we go

it's a derivative map
a calculus of ten uncertainties
and they'll never have peace

they're the turners of keys
handled steadily they'll tame
the wild beast

they've prepared us a feast
with pen and paper they fillet my enemies

and she says
I don't know what you're hoping for
I don't know

I've got the whole of my hand played out
turn the river and see that you know
just what i mean

it's so solitary
oh my god is it another party

I've got the back of my hand laid out

Don't I

I've got the back of my hand laid out
damn right

I remember when pursuit began
presented arms of grizzly bear
I could climb the treetop
I could climb the treetop
Track Name: Forward
you look forward
and something would be
what I asked for
and you look forward for what
I look for
there was something
I was supposed to be

you look forward
and something would be
what i asked for
and you look for what
I was supposed to be
what I was told

bent on high tension
following the throng
pulling populace along
gone, didn't know how far gone
the masses have gone
the masses have gone

you look forward

(looking in the past
looking in the past
looking in the past
is no way forward)
