Track Name: summer sheets
summer sheets
cascading down the backs of the weak
what we were
what we see
god must have been in your eyes sleeping
what we'd be
summer teeth
and summer skin that burns so sweet
what we'd be
Track Name: divorcees
you and i
symmetrical creatures on opposite sides
of an asile
of a way
your cowboyboots shone
like marbles

and this is the church, the steeple
no promise, no people
now we are home
no church, no steeple
no promise, no people
now we are two
and only two

you and i
opposite creatures on symmetrical sides
of an aisle
in a steeple
no hope for for the people
no hope to shine like diamonds
no hope to shine like diamonds

and this is their church, their steeple
no promise, no people
now we are home
no church no steeple
no hope no people
now we are two
and only two
Track Name: my way home
i burnt the year
wasting my breath
but i know
the ways
burnt to the end

i know
the road home
and have not taken it

i know the road home
and have not taken it

for all our mistakes
for all our mistakes
for all our mistakes and blood

for all our blood
for all our marrow
for everything we were

i know
but i won't go
my way home

i know
but i won't go
my way home
Track Name: hank williams sings of a road not taken
i would have walked a million miles
i would have folded millions of
paper cranes
i would have walked a million miles that day
to keep me from
walking back to you

i would have walked a million miles
i would have known what you had said that day
i would have known and
made it easier that way

i would have know
i would have gone
i would have wanted it that way

i would have walked a million miles
i would have walked a million miles
to keep me from
walking back to you.
