Track Name: Because Of A Fire At The Paper Manufacturer
Because of a fire at the paper manufacturer
we stay inside
and i describe
the ways in which I will succumb to western vice
take me, pull me aside
I do not have the words to make it up
fashion an alibi
you give it to me straight and it is rough
the smoke is rising

in case of a liar on the loose,
you better stand your ground for half an hour
face the truth, heaven really isn't just quite as high
as you had imagined
because of a fire at the paper manufacturer
I'm not walking that way home
I'm not trying to build the pyramids in Kansas
I'm just trying to get a sense of the grid

I do not have the words to make it up
fashion an alibi
you give it to me straight and it is rough
the smoke is rising

because of a fire
Track Name: Call Me Number Five
between the day and night
there's something that is like
holding onto nothing
nothing at all
I want to break your fall
before you come back up
to talk to you through strings in the wall

when I wrote my thoughts down
my whole plan went to seed again
then I reached down too hard

when I raised the stakes up
from the ground again:
cold holy water wasted

the cars on your block
the move around around around
and I do not have permission to drive them
I have no good part to rewind to
but there's only so much
ice in the glass

given the option
call me number five
general motion
terrified of light
gem in the ocean
you call me number five

her thoughts,
the cars on your block they move around around around
and I do not have permission to drive them
I have no good part to rewind to
but the there's only so much
ice in the glass

given the option
call me number five
general motion
terrified of light
gem in the ocean
you call me number five

why the commotion?
is it what you hold inside?
is your door unlocked
you might be broke down
gem in the ocean
you call me number five
