Track Name: Turnaround Kid
Turnaround Kid
Trouble seems to come, & Trouble seems to go
But wherever it is it will probably make its way to my home
I'll bet my negative life savings on that.

If opposites attract then I must be a positive
Cause I’m a magnet for disasterous superlatives
You probably wouldn’t want to get too close to me.

Cause I’m a turnaround kid
It doesn’t matter what you did
Cause I’m a turnaround kid
And I can turn it all around again

My momma used to say that this is all a test
You got to keep your head up and hope for the best
Cause you know I never did so good in school

Well people they come, & people they go
And I’m never really sure if I should have said more
I’ve left far too many things unsaid.

Cause I’m a turnaround kid
It doesn’t matter what you do
Cause I’m a turnaround kid
And I can turn it all around again
Track Name: Tunguska / After Party Blues
We used to walk in the shadow of a common light
We etched our hopes in the glass of a satellite
Back when I was only a photograph in your mind
And the rest we'll have to hide
From their prying, prying eyes

Take me away from the hypocrite life
Don’t wanna waste your time
Take me away from the hypocrite life
You know the party never last x3
Never lasts
I cut my tongue on the sea of a changing wind
I caught a dream and I threw it back again
She left me there all adrift in the open sea
In the hopes that I would drown
I drank the sea. I drank it down.
She used to run her fingers through my hair
I'd fall asleep and she would hold me there
Back when I was only a photograph
I would never cry, no I never cried.
For your prying, prying eyes
Oh no I ever cried

Take me away from the hypocrite life
Don’t wanna waste your time
Take me away from the hypocrite life
You know the party never last x3
Never lasts

Hypocrite life

[transition into After Party Blues]

Keep good, make good, after party
Down time, make time for the body

I wouldn’t mind a dream
Where I was tall as the sky was

Keep good, make good, after party
Down time make time for the party
sine wave, square wave oscillate slowly makeshift, hi low, turning out the marrow

I wouldn’t mind a dream where
I was tall as the sky was
I wouldn’t mind a dream
I was tall as the sky
Track Name: Ark
We poisoned all the oceans and
We bleeding from the seas and
the birds were flying north but
they all dropped dead from disease

now the mothers starve their children and
they feed them to the lions and
the people are rejoicing there's no one to tell them no
I told you so

The ark will take me home again
I guess the ark will take me home again
Now nothing's in the way
I won’t let nothing in the way

I swallowed all your counterfeit
And made it to the shore again
And nearly drowned with all the rest
who couldn’t take it anymore

You pilfered all our resources
You sold them with your soul and now the milk is ripe and sour and
The mortuary is full

Put me in the ark again
The ark will take me home again
Now nothings in the way
I won’t let nothing in the way
Track Name: Still Life / PTSD
Still Life
I’m still a still life
Will always be a counterfeit machine
I’m still a still life
Will always be a counterfeit machine

I heard a calm voice
I wish I had a clam voice
But I can feel everything

And I hear everything
I only want to shut it out
But I can’t find the switch

I don’t even know what’s real
And I can’t pretend
It’s just a mystery to me

And I have dreams
but they never end
They just keep me keep me in spin

I’m still a still life
Will always be a counterfeit machine
I’m still a still life
Will always be a counterfeit machine

It’s ok.
Track Name: I Will Be Your Friend
I Will Be Your Friend
I will be your friend
Yeah I could be your friend
No one understands
The kind of hell you’re living in

I could try to understand
I may not comprehend
But I could make pretend for a while

Dark days, lost days
Days that have no end
Hopeless terrifying nightmare days
I can be your friend

I will be your friend
Yeah I can be your friend
If you would only let me in


I will face your fears
They may not disappear
But they don’t have to be so real
You don’t have to be afraid to feel

Long days, cold days,
Days that don’t seem real
When you scream and no one hears
I can be your friend I can I can
