To get yourself in a vehicle wreck is easy Just take your eyes off the road and push back the seat And you wait for a big white truck to crash into you It's like sitting at home just waiting for something else to do And if you never arrive at the place that you were going You must have passed into another dimension just let me know what i look like out there in the alternate universe of love If only you had stuck to the rules then maybe you wouldn’t be so far from reality and the medicine man made it clear to say these words sleepy sweet and never feel another hurt If it seems in the moment you just can’t remember with all of the elements burning in the fire just let me know what I look like out there in the alternate universe of love

Happily 03:32
I'll tell you why I dance on down the road There's nothing here I haven't already sowed I don't complain, the Lord's unleavened tone It's not the way I like to get my hope I'd tell you now, I don't have much to say I have you here, I'd like to stay that way I don't complain I do not understand I'm unrestrained, I'm calling you again And I feel that you don't want me around Come on baby, it's the way you comfort me now Virgil's here, He's living in my soul He's countin' days, I'm counting what I'm owed I see him run, I see him hide I see him try to fuck my life And I feel you don't want me around Come on baby, it's the way you comfort me now

All of my life I've kept it cool Or at least somebody told me that's what I should do Then you took me under and thought me through Is there even one thing this boy can say is true? How could I believe in anything I say When I don't want to know what's hiding in my brain What is the one thing I'm not allowed to do Can I be angry with you? I stomp around, fashion a frown I show the world I'm someone so profound The floor is open for questions, all pre-approved So I can sound like my idols' interviews How could I believe in anything I say When I don't want to know what's hiding in my brain What is the one thing I'm not allowed to do Can I be angry with you?

She works at the bank, she likes it a lot When Eleanor finds the safe is unlocked The money is gone and so is her pride A chance to move on towards Mexico’s light She borrows a car without any plan Drives south for a while out of Iowa’s hands Suddenly light, an angel appears She’s made to be blind and then she can hear Out from the dark a vision appears Every future for everything she has ever held dear Her mother at home, washing her clothes Her friends at the bank, the bloom on a rose Jupiter moans, it’s ready to die As the galaxy’s edge begins to collide Eleanor smiles, it’s not in her head The universe is a pearl in her hand

I Can't Tell 02:42
How can I know all about my health when I'm not even sure that I'm getting help? You are the guide for me today The day will come to find my own way You love me now but I can't tell how you get love from me Every king has ruled then died Every throne released in time When every home in the ocean drowned the Lord decided he loves us now You love me now but I can't tell how you get love from me
6.
Why don’t you need me? I don’t see why I took in the sunlight Shining off your eye I don’t know how I can be there for you now The cable’s been untied You’re facing away now Everyone knows that I’m someone empty Nobody knows me deep in my soul Am I alone if I can’t do those things That you need from me? When I first met you you needed from nothing And I took from you To fill in myself Now if you ask me to hand it back to you It’s already spent, dear
7.
All my days are gone and my nights are free I can be there now but it'll just be me And the cost is one, won through you and me As the past prevails, it's all there is to see Is this all I can do to love you? Is this all I can do to care? Is this all I can do to love you? And will you be there? When I told the truth, I had already lied and come and gone from you one too many times I am a winking light in between the trees at the slightest breeze you won't be looking at me Is this all I can do to love you? Is this all I can do to care? Is this all I can do to love you? And will you be there? Is this all I can do to love you? Is this all I can do to care? Is this all I can do to love you? It’s all I can do

The Sky 05:52
If the Lord delights in man’s way He makes his steps firm so he stumbles he will not fall for the Lord upholds him with his hand Crashed in Puget Sound 29 and proud Referred to by his first name Turn from evil and do good Then you will dwell in the land Forever for the Lord loves the just Will not forsake his faithful one Carefree and wild Kenton Island bound Got himself up into The sky
9.
If you find a lonely leaf on the way to the Sheikh Hold it close, in repose like the dew on a rose Watch your life now unfold, a galaxy unknown Limb to limb, mouth to mouth Every leaf can ever only find the ground You can talk to the stars But they don't care where you are And every song breaks their heart For being far apart Do not be afraid
10.
Every single sun has got to die Jupiter will burn in perfect light All of the angels will hide their eyes Love reveals what violence hides Colors will collapse and then disperse Beauty that the eye cannot discern Gemini torn from his brother’s side Redesigned in perfect light Every single moon praised in song Will one day meet its final dawn Slips into sleep Sunday night Dreams of starlight and astral might No more From the only one
