Track Name: Overflow
The winter means nothing to those who keep moving,
The shadows keep plucking, the warm winds are soothing,
Each and every day we move farther away from the Overflow.

The trees made of sugar they break under pressure,
While children tame cougars they ride with great pleasure.
We raise up our closed fists, but we'll never notice
The overflow.

It's over, the overflow.
It's growing in size, but we'll never notice it's gone.

The fires are swarming, the faithful are bleeding,
The soldiers are storming, the ignorant are leading.
All else has failed, so they ride on the tail of the overflow.

Monotonous speakers go off on their tangents,
While cave-men fight creatures, who knows where their minds went.
Blood and oil spill, but our glasses will fill till they Overflow.

Fear has risen from it's prison,
The illusion has been cast if we don't act fast we are gone.
Track Name: Poor Mouse
If you give all your time, I'll spend it for you.
Worth more than the dime on the sole of your shoe.

In the heat of the night we collide.
See the face of the beautiful bride,
Left to sit on the street corner.
Would you burn it all to save her?
No

Her touch it has no love, but it feels so damn good.
So you strapped on your gloves, like I knew that would.

In the darkness she plays your guitar,
Beside the candles and hotel room bar.
A quiet whisper and smoke on her lips,
Begs for you to just cough up your tip.

And you want to giver her your all,
But the poor mouse responds to a call,
Of another that she has to take.
It's not your fault she has no heart to break.

No heart to break

If you give all your time, I'll spend it for you.

In the heat of the night we collide.
See the face of the beautiful bride,
Left to sit on the street corner.
Would you burn it all to save her?
No
Track Name: Brain In A Box
I am a lost brain in a box and someday i want,
To see past these walls.
And across what they have built,
While we were gone, when we were young.

Sometimes you are given something for nothing.
Time stops, pull the rabbit's feet out of the gear-box.
Make sure no one hears us, we can bury them next to the house,
And still make that greyhound, before the moon is down we can still leave this town.

Universally and Karmacally fucked, I thought as much.
You need reassurance, I need health insurance.
You need my love and I need your touch.


Sometimes you are given something for nothing.
Time stops, pull the rabbit's feet out of the gear-box.
Make sure no one hears us, we can bury them next to the house,
And still make that greyhound, before the moon is down we can still leave this town.

We are so many lost brains, and someday i want to see past these walls...

But once you've been gone so long you're never coming back, you're just running up the hill and rolling back.

Sometimes you are given something for nothing.
Time stops, pull the rabbit's feet out of the gear-box.
Make sure no one hears us, we can bury them next to the house,
And still make that greyhound, before the moon is down we can still leave this town.
Track Name: Lovely Premonition
It's a lovely premonition we are gliding on,
As I run my fingers through your golden locks.
Picking shapes out of the shifting clouds above,
I hold you in my arms; you fit like a glove.

All I can do is love you and pray that you'll stay.
Let's lay awake on a rainy day and never go to sleep.

You say without a sound that I'm getting warm.
It's a subtle proposition that our bodies form.
I'll play your piano you'll play my guitar.
You love me even though my heart is scarred.
Is that too hard?

All I can do is love you and pray that you'll stay.
Let's lay awake on a rainy day and never go to sleep.

Oh I will give you everything,
And I will ask for nothing more than truth and reverie.
If you want then forever I will sing.

All I can do is love you and pray that you'll stay.
Let's lay awake on a rainy day and never go to sleep.
I'll hold you close and kiss your nose,
Till the warmth of daybreak.
Just lay by my side and close your eyes,
And all of your secrets I will keep.
Track Name: Everything You Touch (Radio Edit)
With your toes curled so, and your arms at your side, You float downstream, just as I advised.
Our clothes they do lay on the nearby river bank,
And I hope we never wear them again.

Comfort I do take simply knowing I'm alive,
And I'm one in the same with the rain and the light.
Nothing really matters, save for matters that you like,
So keep them with your arms at your side.

Would you believe,
Everything you touch,
Is just a dream.
It doesn't have to hurt so much,
If you love everything.

Would you believe,
Everything you touch,
Is just a dream.
It doesn't have to hurt so much,
If you love everything.
