Track Name: reason
there's a tree in the backyard that looks like a person
& although i know it's a tree, i still think it's watching me
i'm sure that i'm being watched by somebody

there's a mirror on the bookshelf reflecting my face
& although i know it's a mirror, i still think there's someone here
i'm sure there's a reason for all of my fear
Track Name: i hope the world ends
i hope the world ends
i hope it does
i hope that we all die at once
i hope that we all die at once with no survivors
i hope the world ends so no-one ever has to mourn their friends again

give me locusts, give me bombs
give me useless prayers and psalms
give me cracking tectonic plates
fire and plague and zombie licks
give me an apocalypse
make me patient zero in a blight that overnight will show us all the fabled tunnel light

i hope there's no future
i hope there's not
i hope the world burns to the core
i hope the world burns to the core or we all drown
i hope there's no future so no-one ever sees a sepulture again

lizard people, if you're listenin'
come and leave the scorched earth glistenin'
with our blood & leave our corpses to the beetles
all you gods i don't believe in
come and punish all us heathens
i am tired of burying people
Track Name: locket prayer
i've not been here since time first dawned
& yet, remain here still
i can't complete the climb i'm on
& yet, there's so much hill

though the sands are wide and vast and vicious night and day
though desert storms come on so fast and aching limbs betray
i will be lead to you at last
i will always find a way

so, now, though slumber seals your eyes
and sleep has filled your heart
hear me when i say, "my love, rise"
& let our magic start
Track Name: the scientist
the scientist said, "this heart is just an organ
"like anything else, it has its purpose:
"circulating my blood round and round again"

not one for moonlit walks or frivolously lengthy talks
or similies involving the atlantic
the scientist said, "i'm not much of a romantic"

& when the scientist, he fell in love
he said, "these chemicals are complicated
"this chemistry is overrated"
the scientist snapped his medical gloves
turned to the rats in their cage
said, "i have knowledge; wisdom's coming with age"

the scientist said, "this is quite unlike me
"but recently i-- that is to say--
"well, i can't help but notice your eyes are like the deep blue sea"

the scientist grew roses in test tubes and vials
and the scientist smiled a carefree smile

'cause the scientist knew the statistics
knew he'd get hurt, knew that love can die
but the scientist said, "anything's worth a try"
Track Name: "i'm loathe to diminish the creative spirit"
i'm really sorry, sophie, i never meant to wake you
i thought the walls were thicker, i thought that i was slicker
i'm really sorry, sophie
i would never purposefully disrupt your sleeping
i hope you can forgive me

i'm really sorry, sophie
i'm really sorry, sophie
i'm really sorry, sophie
i'm really sorry, sophie

i got your note this morning, sophie
i'd been awake all night
but i guess you know i'm not exactly diurnal
i went into the kitchen & i stood over the sink
and then i saw it: little white paper covered with red ink

i'm really sorry, sophie
i'm really sorry, sophie
i'm really sorry, sophie
i'm really sorry, sophie

your note was so polite, sophie
the tone was so contrite, sophie
i guess i just forget some people sleep at night, sophie
you taped it to my back door & i'll try my hardest
not to wake you up with my piano and my singing anymore

i'm really sorry, sophie
i'm really sorry, sophie
i'm really sorry, sophie
i'm really sorry, sophie
