Track Name: Invitation
I can't decide what you are or what I like
It's been so long since I heard you sing for the first time:
"trains wouldn't stop, not even for the tides.
we just felt the wind blowing in our eyes."

I can make a wave one way. it could be better.
Still, I wouldn't change the things that we'd say.
tell me truthfully: how much do I provide?
I could've sworn there was music the first time

new shoes on my feet. how am I supposed to sleep?
lying next to you, lying through my teeth,
waiting for your invitation.
not quite lonely, only patient.

I can make a wave one way. it could be better.
Still, I wouldn't change the things we'd say. tell me truthfully: how much do I provide?
just tell me you're alright
Track Name: Darling Threads
misery: my brain is on but I don't need it.
nothing to see but eyes are wide, I should be sleeping.
stuck on thinking about things I'll never know.
how do you act when you're all alone?

oh my darling threads. all tangled in my head.

we should drive to mystic for the night.
I know I look like shit but I feel alright.
we romanticized rhode island
and all this time I can't believe I've been silent.

oh my darling threads. all tangled in my head.

misery: my brain is on but i don't need it.
wide awake, I should be sleeping.
I can't forget what you said to me:
"it's all in your head and it always will be."
Track Name: Bamboo
Farah, atmosphere takes its toll.
Resist the urge to tumble down the rabbit hole.
do you see what I see?

I cannot say why its killing me every time that we are together

Farah, you know that I can't come back until you're gone.
I know you see what I see.

Still, I cannot say why its killing me every time that we are together...

Farah, I lied.
I know exactly why its killing me every time that we're together.
I want you and something in my head says you want me too.


Sometimes I can swear its getting faster,
and then it dies.

Are we straight lines?
I could can I'm getter faster
so won't you boomerang?

No, you don't see what I see.
No, you'll never see what I see.

points in time and space
always close, never the same.
Track Name: Follow
slow down
the patterns are not fair
the wind that surrounds you,
i used to feel it in my hair

and oh it's sad when you put it like that.
but its only sad when you put it like that

lets go back
i liked it better at the start
the future that drowns you
i used to feel it in my heart

but its not so bad when you put it like that
Track Name: Jason Schwartzman
try my best to dream of you,
but that's not how it works.

no you come along,
you set me back,
right when you wanna.

take me to a lab, split my head in half.
smooth out, sand down, all these scratches that make me skip so bad.

this is my face, it don't seem old.
relative age: you've never been so stoned.
get it out of my head somehow.

combine sighs if you want to.
river runs wild with or without you.
it can't help to be alone when you decompose alive
through skin and bone.

die, lifelike dreamer. make way for one more non-believer.
drown it out, it's so much better when it's loud.
Track Name: Slide
alone enough to try
for all i know you could be right
but what makes you so sure about me?

you were asking "was it enough?"
and i was saying "oh no i don't think it was"
so what are you waiting for?

i can feel it all starting to slide
but i don't think that i really mind

what are you waiting for?
