Arthaus Rock 02:49
A torchlit blanket Sleep over at Art’s house And silence is a sh-sh, sh-sh I don’t know what to do Go out Read up Don’t go to sleep tonight Sneak out to the vantage point And stare upon, the naked city Where I spent my holidays Go out Read up It’s been so long Never apologize Never apologize

Quit Jazz 03:52
Where won’t I go In the darkness of the weekend I said no, this can’t be, this can’t be The last jazz, it goes on And we cannot grow tired Oh my god, I’m so tired Daniel, can’t seem, time to, I’ll be moving on

Days 04:15
Her walk’s discrete But there’s an echo in the street Reverberating in the bannisters Through apartments of barristers Having dinner in kitchen rooms Are filled with pigeon grooms It’s been days now Since you gave me the badge Sent a telegram to stall you To ask can I call you I live in a museum now And I want to compare Where it’s at and what is where Wallow, wallow, hollowed out Now I’m evil And the days are wrapped in grey You know the window is open Where the light bulb is broken You were dancing past the ice cream vendors To a record by The Seaside Menders Pass right through the dull of my blank eyes

Vault II 02:34
Like a movie See a lifetime flicker across the street The radio advertiser does say «Cricket & Circuit’s Company They will take you up the hill On New Year’s Eve I believe we get a little closer every year» He ties his tie a little tighter every year

Rings Hollow 01:54
Phone booth on the street outside In the drizzle and the movie lights The quiet week is gone Just a pompous man with shiny shoes Cannot be prevailed upon The ocean’s in his ears tonight Worn out posters, torn out notice There are no stories at rings hollow Just dimes that fell In search of the operator And who’s that kid? With lipstick on, in her father’s leather jacket Let me fall backwards through the pages of The photographs that led me

Swacket 03:43
Varsity ties Loved her once could love her twice Should have gone to her show Used to listen to her once, you know In a worn grey poncho and a striking bow tie We went Punch and Judy without ever knowing why Either way now, suit yourself Either way now, suit yourself Don’t fail me tonight There’s no way that I might Say so I don’t think so Oh what you do when you’re close to me But I’m not the man that I used to be Either way now, suit yourself Either way now, suit yourself Don’t fail me tonight There’s no way that I might My sweetheart My sweetheart

IIFTTTLT 03:46
Someday won’t you tell me it’s cool There’s no reason to hide away I was not that drunk, you know People move around, a lot Like chess pieces on a table This turns out bad Was this all I had To say for myself I used to be good looking But now I’m evil Saw ten thousand stars and I’m spinning Black eyed through the door And into the night And I’m long gone tonight Way out of sight To ruin someone’s happiness It is for them that the lights twinkle And not for me Saw ten thousand stars and I’m spinning Black eyed through the door, and into the Led me by the hand Strange city at night

Tonight’s coolest concert Grim la tengo Over there’s George on bass Except there is no bass They covered Puccini And a legal struggle would ensue Wine and cardboard I’ve got nowhere to go
