Track Name: settling sky
chords: E; F#m; C#m, F# (sometimes F barre after)
E; F#m; G#m; A

im watching mountains move in tune
feeling alive, here i thrive, and back to you
the coffee fills and drains most days
my eyelids pull down against my will
my skin peels, it feels, as if to say:
"oh god, oh please come back another day"
i picture my future in plain view
a marching skeleton bites and barks at me

he barks at me

im watching bridges break in two,
down county line into moose river,
his face turns blue
at the funeral a cop poured gasoline
all over windows and lit a pack of smokes
he threw them all over the ground,
and killed us all

he killed us all

i dont know why, i dont know where
im too distracted, to even read anything
i dont know why i dont know where
im too exhausted, to even close my eyes --
but i dont wanna shave, my stupid face
surf the mattress alone, again again
the skeleton comes back from time to time
when i'm alone or in a crowded viewing room.
he talks of fate and the empty skies
or he sits and stares when i need him most
i walk, i walk, i walk today.
Track Name: fill the gaps
chords: G, Fm, Em, B7
G, Gm, Em, D

the air is freezing all the warmth, from the smoke that is coming out of lungs
the ground beneath is calling me, to take a seat;
fill out peace bonds, job applications, and midterms,
but the sky above is telling me, to keep on staring at the smokers
who are, living their own damn lives, away from me

oh my god, where have all the losers gone?
oh my lord, where has all the feeling gone?
oh my man, don't cry now, because you're gonna make me too
oh my dear, it's gonna be alright, you don't have to colour in the lines

where are you? smoking joints, alone, in your dark room
where am i? i'm outside; the black dog had chased me out
how are you? i don't want to open my mouth, but i owe it to you
why are my; arms trembling, mouth agape, and
here's the plan; hiding away when it just gets too damn hard
it's hard to sleep, when there's nowhere with a roof that's very welcome to you
it's hard to breathe, when the inside's walls are threatening to swallow you whole
it's hard to eat, when your head manifests into a broken washing machine
it's hard to dream, when your thought processes are circling and breaking again

oh my god, where have all the losers gone?
oh my lord, where has all the feeling gone?
oh my man, don't cry now, because you're gonna make me too
oh my dear, it's gonna be alright, you don't have to colour in the lines
Track Name: before bed
chords: G; Am; C; Dm

If I'm drunk I will be calling you
if im high ill be hanging up
its almost easier in the long run
to stop picking up anything reluctantly

i could shut you off and out if i want
i see no reason not to -- but the guilt
it feels madder if i keep you in,
it feels sadder either way it seems

if only i could sew my lips shut
tear the vocal cords out my neck
only then would i have nothing to say
they're using bullets now, oh, run away

run away
run away

i'm going for a walk i will be back
i've got my coat and all these notebooks
i watch the paper float down the sky
i get home and i almost don't want to cry

but you know it doesn't last long
back to sleep by the candlelight
i wake up burning, i let it burn
get back to sleep, it's getting dark now!
Track Name: watchtower
chords: C/G; C/B; Am; Fm (or F barre)

i sit up in my watchtower
it is made of rotting oak
cut down by the chainsmokers in plaid
up here i watch all my friends move around
i notice they move in a cycle
i get to watch them breathe and breathe
sometimes i shout down compliments
make them feel they are right
sometimes i whisper poetry
make them feel i'm not right

i sit up in my watchtower
within the clouds
and the smog seeps up and fills my lungs
up here i wonder if my friends
ever do look up
i notice that they never have
i get to watch them walk away, in droves
i get to watch them walk away
Track Name: free coffee
capo on 4th fret
chords: G; Am; C; D

i dont like the way
those cops are looking at me
they've got something up their sleeves
i walk into the café
i get a coffee and shit -- now im broke
wait for another day
where i can see my own goddamn way
when i dont have to pay
a single cent for a caffeinated beverage again
wont have to sleep again
coffee: you're my only friend

i dont like the way
those cops are looking at the dead cops
they've got something up their sleeves
i walk into my cell
i got a few knives so i start a few fights and
wait for another year
where i'll be eligible for parole
when i dont have to pay
a single cent for a caffeinated beverage again
wont have to sleep again
wont have to eat again,
wont have to live again
no gods, no masters,
we'll conquer the police state together.
Track Name: familiar faces
chords: D A Bm G
D Fm Am Em

riding buses gets me nowhere
working for filthy capitalists set me back
i make my coffee, ride my bike, tie my laces
lately i havent been seeing many familiar faces

i want to grow a lot of plants, and drink from the ground.
eat whats good and pure, and find out whats really right for me!

and she smoked smokes since she was thirteen
and the snowblower blows til may at least, and
you got a lot of funny jokes, and
sometimes those jokes, just
aint so damn funny anymore.

riding buses gets me nowhere
working for filthy capitalists sets me back
i make my coffee, ride my bike, tie my laces
lately i havent been seeing many familiar faces
Track Name: near-ghosts
chords: G Bm Em Am
C B E A

I dont want to talk about
all the things you wanna talk about
if you want me to bleed something else
youll have to ship me to another goddamn earth
because we're all humans here
horrible people that dont deserve deserve a lick of time
because were all monsters here
preying on the weak and tired souls

of the deep holes in the walls
of the coffee rings on my papers
of the smoke stains on your new jacket
i dont see point in your shredded tyres

you can hug your porcelain teddy bowl
you can kiss your glass until your lips corode
you can jaundice yourself overnight
you can clog your veins with a single bite
i couldnt shake a stick at your right
i couldnt stay asleep another night
