Track Name: invincible
when the rain came
we peeled off our masks
and laid on the gravel
our fingers full of knotted grass

when the night fell
we piled in your car
and rolled down the windows
our fingers full of sky and stars
Track Name: wouldn't it
it's times like this i kinda wanna be a kid again
the night is old but we are barely getting started and
we're singing songs that we don't know, we are destroying them
we're trading stories like, "oh, holy shit, remember when?"

we're sure there was a time when every evening felt like this
a never-ending stretch of space, of undiscovered bliss
i'm pretty sure that's false, it's not a real thing that we miss
it's just a lie that we all make up when we reminisce

'cause wouldn't it be nice? wouldn't it be nice?
wouldn't it be nice? wouldn't it be nice?

it would be nice to have a summer like i see on shows
a season like i hear about in songs on radios
sepia-tinted nights where we get drunk and lose our clothes
this year's been shit so far, we all deserve a few of those

i'll have to learn to ride a bike, but if i do then we
can have a bike ride montage on a day down by the sea
i mean, the lake-- the sea is pretty far away from me
but it's still got waves and sandcastles and the sun is free

and wouldn't it be nice? wouldn't it be nice?
wouldn't it be nice? wouldn't it be nice?
wouldn't it? wouldn't it just be grand?

when midnight struck on new years, i swore i'd try to be brave
but some friends we shared this weather with last have gone away
and a silly part of me feels that it could be ok
if we could just have a few movie-perfect summer days

'cause wouldn't it be nice? wouldn't it be nice?
wouldn't it be nice? wouldn't it be nice?
wouldn't it? wouldn't it just be grand?
wouldn't it be nice?
Track Name: sod bandits
purple lips
dirt-caked chests
spines pressed to asphalt
heads turned northwest

purple teeth
vodka tongues
how did we pass time
when we were young

we ask ourselves what we used to do
before we were legal, when we were still new
how did we pass the nighttime hours
as budding flowers, before we had booze

stealing food
lighting smokes
trying to make plans
trying to hold hope

stealing kisses
dancing hard
blaring sad songs
in dark backyards

we ask ourselves how we used to play
before we were jaded to the sweetness of may
how did we get through quiet nights
as tiny sprites, before we strayed
Track Name: shadflies & beer
the sun will rise on my softened body
just hours after we leave here
after we finally move our feet from these soft wood planks
after we tear ourselves from this table of shad flies and beer

the sun will reach down to work tension out of my bare shoulders
painting them like it paints clouds with sailors' warnings
and it will dry up and flake off; art always fades off of my body
nobody can mark me, not even the maker of mornings

not even the bringer of daylight can brand me permanently

we'll feast, we'll feed, on that windy island
barefeet on gravel and on dirt
we'll run and we'll fall like we used to in school yards
we'll touch our bloody knees with sweaty fingers like they don't hurt

we'll feast, we'll feed, we'll climb away from everything
that chased our vessel on its journey across the sea
and our feet will not meet the ground again
our toes won't touch the road that we rode into this town on

as we take it back
Track Name: malus domestica
i promised you tapestries, but i only unravel
i promised you statues, but i bring only gravel
Track Name: list #4
do i have to be afraid?
do i have to be afraid?

do i have to be ok?
do i have to be ok?

tea leaves on your chest
pink flowers at your feet
salt water on dry dirt
piles of ripped up grass
bare skin smoking in unseasonable heat

a list of things we brought you when your tension turned to past

do i have to be afraid?
Track Name: vincible
surrounded by abandoned caps & covered in ash
we're floating like the cork we pushed into the bottle with a pen
to get to the wine
and we have so much time
no, we have no time
nights are getting colder, getting longer
but never mind

we have the water, we have starlight, we have
tonight tonight tonight
tonight tonight tonight

i lay down to watch the sky then close my eyes
and listen to the wind and waves and words 'cause i am trying
my goddamnedest to be present
to be thankful for the people i love while they're here
'cause if there's one thing this year made clear

it's that we are finite
but it's alright at least tonight tonight tonight
tonight tonight tonight

we have so much time
no, we have no time
but we have so much wine
and we're together

tonight tonight tonight
tonight at least one more night
