Track Name: Barberton
screaming days are old
hard knife to your soul
when we get out can we go to the party
where we turn on each other and end up sorry?

freezing caves are home
with nowhere to go
when we get back can we turn out the lights
and open our heart and make it a good night?

i don't want to mess around
i don't want this mess around
jump into a magnet sound
you're canyon bound

i don't want to mess around
i don't want this mess around
Track Name: Make it Break
one more note
there, i finished what you wrote
a hundred pages on the harbor where we made our only daughter
and my coat couldn't keep warm on your throat
collect a scarf out of the gutter
whisper endlessly about lovers, lovers, lovers, lovers, lovers, lovers

oh, lovers, lovers, lovers, lovers, lovers

drink a glass of ale and ask what country am i made of
and i'll laugh and laugh and laugh and answer
all of the above
put on records, slow and steady
Elvis Presley Blues is heavy
make another punch line and i'll laugh and laugh and laugh and wonder

what is it about your skin that always keeps you warm?
what is it about your lungs that's always harmful?
everything about my skin that always keeps me cold
is everything about my love that's always harmful
Track Name: Separated by Ice
watching you move in the back of the bus
thumb through a book while you fumble your luck
even at night when your eyes stay dark
am i the only one who looks for the spark?

gavin, i've never told anyone before
that i'm madly in love with the middle school whore
and even when my chances are negative slim
i know she's the ocean where i wanna swim

oh, i came to realize the truth
we're separated by ice

gotta get a real job, gotta find my place
move away from you into a hollywood space
and even when my friends chose the water in the bay
i found love and warmth in the obvious ways

ten years later you're a comfortable mud
cluttered in my brain with soils and suds
i visit the ghost of your teenage pose
and i wonder what umbrellas would've done for us

oh, i came to realize the truth
we're separated by ice
Track Name: Keep the Heat Coming
drunk, dead tired
i'm on fire
keep the water on tap in my veins and my mouth
i'm wasted awake

too much sun
no more fun
it's an hour after hour after hour of buzz cuts
and i'm waist deep

keep the heat coming, coming, coming

soft sheets
don't fall asleep
when your mind is a missile and the eyes the target
it's the toughest blink

pull the pillow
straight out of my mouth
use a faucet to forget
you've got to punish me

keep the heat coming, coming, coming
Track Name: Statue's Pulse
bring the doctors in
my brain's been lying
i've lost count of the places
where i was dying

someone struck a match behind my eyelids
now i'm seeing red and feeling expired
fire, fire, fire

oh, sarah said, "there's nothing to prescribe
i'll trade my nerves to help you feel alive"

cross cables
to believe in glass
otherwise i look through windows
and only see the past

taste copper
on my dinner plate
and find the reason my arms are always late
find the reason my arms are always late

then somebody screamed i was paralyzed
but i could feel their breath
and somebody screamed i was hypnotized
because i didn't think i was dead
and somebody screamed i was in disguise
that my soul had already left
and sarah kept crying out "martyr!"
though my ruins weren't blessed

please don't bury me
