Track Name: Carousel
Another perfect day
That I didn't spend with you
Take it as you may
I will not let it through

I bang my fists against the post
And still insist that I see the ghost
That found you and bound you for so many years
I hope he gets his and I hope that he hears

Coming around to find you somewhere in time

Another perfect day
That I didn't spend with you
Take it as you may
I will not let it through

I flick my tongue against my cheek
Pop down my head to what lies beneath
Ready to hold back to tears
At the top of my brains and the pit of my fears

Coming around to find you somewhere in time
Track Name: Wear Another Skin
Wear another skin
Walk in some shoes
But you're doin' it wrong
If you're singing the blues

When you're covered in yellow
But you taste like red
And there's nothing primary
About what you've said

Walking down to the end of the street
Would you take it back? Is there anything you won't keep?
Would you sell what you have just to make it okay?
Did you find it okay?
Find it okay?

Everything you've heard
Well it wasn't the truth
About Cane and Abel
And their sister Ruth

So don't cry like a baby
'Cause no one will come
And there's nothing primary
About what you've done

Walking down to the end of the street
Would you take it back? Is there anything you won't keep?
Would you sell what you have just to make it okay?
Did you find it okay?
Find it okay?
Track Name: El Paso
She looks like a flame
Oh it drives me insane
And maybe one day
I'll wake up to find something new again

I don't care if I'm trite
I won't sleep well tonight
If you're here when I'm gone
Please don't tell the sun so you can turn on your own light

Oh El Paso
My darling sleeps out in El Paso

Where the antelope play
I'll just nest in the hay
'Cause I look at the light
And it's brilliantly bright so we'll dance to the ceiling that way

And dance on the high beams
Like the ones in all my dreams
And you won't hate the word
You so earnestly heard in the place where nothing's as it seems

Oh El Paso
My darling sleeps out in El Paso
Track Name: Growing Pains (For a Stranger)
What do you expect me to do with a haiku,
A silver spoon, and a bib?
There's no food on his plate as he dips his bread
In his wine

And I say you have to sin to have someone
Die for a stranger
My dreams are much too noble to feel real
But isn't life so very surreal?

Don't trust strangers
Who try to help when
You grew up
Skeptical of
People's motives
So this is what you mean
You need some help

Can't you feel the salty breeze?
Or lift your fingers with ease?
I'm a candle, untame
You are blowing out my flame

I am a mirror or maybe I'm rubber
And you're glue, God knows
I throw ideas around until they stick to
Somebody somebody somebody new

You are blistered from second thoughts haunting
Every single step
My dreams are much too noble to feel real
But isn't life so very surreal?

Don't trust strangers
Who try to help when
You grew up
Skeptical of
People's motives
So this is what you mean
You need some help

Can't you feel the salty breeze?
Or lift your fingers with ease?
I'm a candle, untame
You are blowing out my flame
Track Name: Hey Brother
I'm in the fetal position
Action figures cross the floor
You're a senior in high school
You're a prisoner of war

Hey brother
Why you down there?

I'm in a bad place
Same basement as before
You've graduated from college
You are opening my door

And you failed your menu test
And you cried out in distress
I just hope that you don't
Think about it anymore

Hey brother
Why you down there?
Hey brother
Please don't be scared
