Track Name: Superego
Merry go round in the liminal spaces
wet-palmed, wide-eyed, patient he braces
for something good, something good, something good, something good
You look like a miracle
Burned if I don’t glance away
Burned if I do glance away
Fast come easy go
Iggy, id, and superego
Dead in the ripple and flow

You came to me in the middle of my life
You came to me under a moonroof
So I seek, so I find
and I’m sorely disappointed

You look like a miracle
Burned if I don’t glance away
Burned if I do glance away
Fast come, easy go
Iggy, id, and superego
Dead in the rhythm and flow
Track Name: What I Do
What I do
I don’t know if it’s the same as loving you
What I do
I don’t know if it’s the same as loving you

‘Cause I try
I try to do everything for you baby
I wish I could
I wish I could do anything for you baby
It’s just what I do

What I do
I don’t know if it’s the same as loving you

‘Cause I try
I try to do everything for you baby
I wish I could
I wish I could do anything for you baby
It’s just what I do

And I’m oh so feckless
and you’re oh so cool
and i’m oh so hapless
and you’re oh so cruel
and i’m so impatient
it’s just what i do
what i do
Track Name: Sixteen Again
I’ll cut my hair off
like I’m sixteen again
fake social in media
back in touch with old friends
Track Name: Bad Luck
Lazy days are here
and I’m not getting any older
I’m just trying to find my way
through an empty room with a pretty view

So I fold my hand to bed
feel your nostrils flare against my chest

This is not what we intended
I guess it’s just bad luck
I guess it’s just bad luck
bad luck

I find that life’s a funny view
with or without you
No I don’t mean it
but I try to

so I fold my hand to bed
feel your lashes flutter ‘gainst my face

This is not what we intended
I guess it’s just bad luck
I guess it’s just bad luck
bad luck
Track Name: I Ain't Got Nothing (If I Ain't Got You)
A voice is not a voice
if you don't hear it too
A choice is not a choice
If you don't make it too
'Cause I know and you know

I ain't got nothing if I ain't got you
I ain't got nothing if I ain't got you
even if the stars go blues,
I still got something if I still got you

and when she goes away
i'm like a boat without sails or a coin without tails
dancing on the divets, like a wager gone wrong
or a thirteen beat song
i know she knows

I ain't got nothing if I ain't got you
I ain't got nothing if I ain't got you
even if the stars go blue
I still got something if I still got you
Track Name: Cloud Nine
You said it best
when you said that there was no way out of here
without a scalp on my belt and a skip in my step
Well I don't want to seem lacrimose
But it's the only thing I can show

I'm on cloud nine
I'm like a toothpick in the mud
making faces in reflections in processions passing by my neighborhood
There's nothing to sign
just a handshake with your right
or a handshake with your eyes would do fine

Don Giovanni pray for me
in every bed a missionary sleeps
tossed and turned by fevers and tongues
my index traces faces through the night
in whiskied hesitation I find
she's not as mortal as I thought

Now don't get me wrong
Cause you're the best thing that's happened to me
since I started singing this song

I'm like a toothpick in the mud
making faces in reflections in processions passing by my neighborhood
There's nothing to sign
just a handshake with your right
or a handshake with your eyes would do fine

I want to go, I want to go
Track Name: Probation
You’ve got me on probation
You’ve got me so the songs’ ain’t comin’ out right
I got no destination
I’m going by the roadsigns on your brow

I keep my thoughts in little bottles
in the fridge to keep em cold
and my shadow’s getting shorter
as the days are growing longer

but it ain’t more than i can take
it ain’t more than i can take
it ain’t more than i can take
it ain’t more than i can take

You’ve got me on the run now
You’ve got me on the wrong side of the law
I’m sleeping in the doorframe
I wake up with my head against the wall

I keep my thoughts on cluttered tabletops
I get up half-past noon
I’m a shaker, I’m a mover,
but I just can’t get past you

but it ain’t more than i can take
it ain’t more than i can take
it ain’t more than i can take
it ain’t more than i can take
