Track Name: a guide for the perplexed
she was full of grace
but lost in my dream
floating into space
tearing at the seams

since the day she left me
i've waited for her here
now the person that i longed for
is calling out to me

i dreamt you loved me
and we drank green tea
the dreams we're making
are all we're taking
away from here
my words just disappear
this life goes so slow
that you never know
Track Name: fall
it's late
at night
it's clear
i've been
drinking

as
i turn
to you
i fall
fall down
Track Name: mary sue
i know i said i let you down
and you were right on the mark
but this time round
we have different lives
can make a brand new start
the changes made
can start today
and change tomorrow in time
so don't be mad
i changed my mind
we're making other plans

and now it's been
a year and seven days
and she didn't write or call
it's only now, i understand
what she was talking about
"what's the point in saving if,
you can't quit your job.
we're only now
and nothing more
and we're stuck with nowhere to go"

nowhere to go
know where to go
Track Name: the shape of things to come
stop, please
you're breaking at the seems
please, wait
don't go tellin' everyone

she'd
wish
she
would've
stayed

he'd
made
her
leave

deary me
i can't believe the world
we've come
so far to see it die

we're
losing
all
of our
looks
they're
getting
thin

soon my dear
we'll have all the love in the world
til' then my friend
we'll have nothing left to debate
still she cares for me
still she stays...
Track Name: sad sack
i don't know
how you slipped
and fell
but you're asking
for more then you're worth

so your ankle swelled
and you stayed
up high
on the
shelf
where
we used to sit

and it's been three days
since you left
darling
you've taken
much more then
you own

and now everytime
that you
call
and i miss it
i think
your coming back home

cos our home is
where we lived
then
and that was the
only one
i've ever known

but still your gone
left all alone
and you just can't get any sleep
i'll just slip
away and fall into
whatever there is
next...

fall into
an empty room
Track Name: an ending (to an unwritten film)
far
are the dreams
that my aching
soul employs
far are the raptures
of love and of joy
when at the end of a sorrow filled day
these dreams just restore
what life pulled away

How
happy is the
blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting,
by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted,
and each wish resign'd;


To dream once more
I close my willing eyes;
but just illusions, and deceits, arise!
Track Name: off to sleep
the dame made a curtsy
the dog made a bow
the dame said 'your servsnt'
the dog said bow-wow
