Track Name: Alright
lay off this shit i swear you're making me older
if you go as a baker they're going to expect bread
if you fuck with me i swear i will blow your fucking mind
all i'm asking for you to do is just wait for me

why you have to go and use all those complicated words
if you listened to me i'd tell you there's nothing to worry about
so if you're gonna sit there working on your time machine that runs on bread
i've got some friends coming over and they're coming to stay
Track Name: Already
with ursa minor over head
pretty good chance of success
so keep your mirrors pointed west
we're getting out of here

we're gonna prove it to them all
we can't be called by what we're called
but indecision casts a pall
so quit fucking around!
Track Name: The Swan
feel the water weight off you

i'm fond of memories she said
but i hate my memories she said
and i'm only waiting she said
til i wake up from this dream
i wanna find a color no one's ever seen

you're just so passive she said
stop making faces she said
your face is beautiful
you gotta prove to me you're not made up
seems such a wonder no one else has got here first
and i'm sure the second i say something you will turn away

feel the water weight off you

we walked together to the pond
i fed some bread to a swan
my sweetest memory in song
was when it shouted how long
will it take you to run a circle round your boy there?

i'm getting frustrated and
i feel like snapping your neck
it feels like everybody
is just waiting for me to get hungry
when i was young i would get dizzy to get high
but now i know the world i see when i am dizzy is a lie

feel the water weight off you
Track Name: In Relief
clumsy girl's a vision in painted pavement
silhouettes in the shade
and not for a moment do i dare come near
clumsy girl's got just the right shade of jaded
colors she and i made
it's all of a sudden very clear

clumsy girl's a fixture in her friends' paintings
stenciled on ice skate blades
and not for a want of trying i'm still here
clumsy girl's far fairer to see than explain
i'm struck dumb all the same
it's all of a sudden very clear

could i but change the sky to any color what would you have it be?
i can't think straight i'm in something!
her eyes in mine feel like i'm falling on my back in a pile of leaves
i can't think straight!

clumsy girl may chase with her graceless paces
easy faltering way
and not for a want of favor she's not here
but clumsy girl's a wonder to watch in stasis
i can't give her a name
it's all of a sudden very queer

it's not exactly easy to explain the way she says things to me
i can't think straight i'm in something!
in fact i can't recall a single word that she has spoken to me
i can't think straight i'm in something!
could i but change the sky to any color what would you have it be?
i can't think straight i'm in something!
her eyes in mine feel like i'm falling on my back in a pile of leaves
i can't think straight!
Track Name: Sylvie
i could fit in the corner of your room
but i'll sit in the dimples this afternoon
i know i probably won't see you soon
echo and me we got our own things to do

leave me
i'm busy

i was born in kyoto here's not home
i sit here singing echoes to the stones
the sounds they make are none like i've ever known
since you played here i could never leave you alone

these trees
tell me

asleep under trees reading genealogies
library made of four petrified trees
this sleepy town still a mystery to me
willow river maybe you're the same as me

sing me
a story
these trees
tell me
