Track Name: Manchester
i wrote me a book
i hid the last page
i didn't even look
i think i locked it in a cage
wrote a novel
cause everybody likes to read a novel...

it started with a word,
and it started pretty well
about a rare and fragile bird that I couldn't even spell
on the table
i think i left it on the table...

i found the last page in the sky,
cold and sweet, like an apple


oh hello,
will you be mine?
i haven't felt this alive in a long time
all the streets are warm today

i read signs
i haven't been this in love in a long time
the sun is up, the sun will stay


The very last breath of the hero of our tale
would you only to guess
did he truly prevail
in the the sequel?
I guess I'll have to write a sequel...

my favorite part's when I die
in your arms like a movie
it's tragic, but now the story has it's proper end.


oh hello,
will you be mine?
i haven't felt this alive in a long time
all the streets are warm and grey

i read the signs
I haven't been this in love in a long time
the sun is up the sun will stay
all for the new day

will you be mine?
the days are short and I wrote me my last rhyme
all the streets are warm today
I read the signs
I haven't been in this love in a long time.

it's been a long time
Track Name: Bright Whites
"keya keya sorya douse ne,
keya keya sorya douse dame da.
yamerarenai yamerarenai.
douse damedakedo yamerarenai ne"
"keya keya sorya douse ne,
keya keya sorya douse dame da.
taerarenai taerarenai,
douse dame da kedo taerarenai ne"
(in Japanese,
"douse dame da" means "probably impossible"
"yamerarenai" means "can't stop" and
"taerarenai" means "can't take it anymore")

you and me at the edge of the world
with a pretty little smile for me to see
new bright whites and a cage full of ice
and a naked little canopy to feed my disease

and if you're to smile at me
I could cry by land or sea

after you said that you like Big Red
I opened up my mind and skipped a beat
cufflinks and hands in wrong places and faces
and creepy little movies made me weep

and if you're to say to me
what is mine is yours to keep


well you know, I'll have to see
if all the stars aligned we could've solved the mystery
it's a partial fantasy
we're living in a land that went astray from history


you and me at the edge of the bed
looking at the faded pictures for you to see and me to see
murder and colonies, land without rivers
raging in the middle of some sad destiny

take one look to find my eyes
safety's in your inner thigh


well you know, I'll have to see,
if all the stars aligned we could have solved the mystery
it's a partial fantasy
we're living in a land that went astray from history
Track Name: Conversations at the End of the World
Oh hello, how are you, my favorite son?
In an hour I will go where I've never gone
In the span of the space between your mother's eyes
are the secrets that I've saved
I hand them down to you

ooh. The averages and laws,
it was every man for himself every child alone

Oh why do they shine so bright in my dreams?
Golden blades, forged from love, they sever my feet
but you know, where they're going, when all is said and done
I don't need them or my secrets
Just the grace of one

here they come
here they come
here they come...
oh hear they come!

is everything signed? Is everything done?
I'm sorry about the blood
...the devil and his stones
It was every man for himself, every child alon

Please tell your mother I'm sorry for the strife
tell your brother I loved him
...the same to his wife
and if you have a heart to take my life away
give me something
give me anger to remember you today

'Cause here they come
oh here they come
Is everything signed? Can nothing be undone?
I'm sorry about the blood
...the devil and his stones
It was every man for himself, every child alone...
Track Name: Evalyn, Summer Has Arrived (feat. Kevin Barnes)
and everyday I'd sit with you
the moment passed and so did you
on Sunday
yeah on Sunday

I felt the need I could of cried
I had the tears I know I tried
on Sunday
yeah on Sunday

I knew the touch
I heard the sound
the smell that came around
Evalyn...

the sun is up
the summer sky has finally arrived
oooo

ah, Summer has arrived
ah, Summer has arrived

oh where was Spring and where was my song
it came and went
I'm a helpless pawn
that's sadness
yeah that's sadness

the matriarch's of summer's past
they torture us with their endless jazz
on Sundays
yeah on Sundays

and everyday the memories dance
across the avenue
Evalyn...
