Track Name: Wishes
wish me luck, common cold, or whatever you want
all my little wishes they don't need me
as a lie and a waste of time

cause they're mine
mine all mine
like teeny signs
that stay in sight

i believe it was a sink and dirty plates
that caught me looking away you caught me reading them
as a dividing mark of time

well the mind reminded
acts like a kid
what goes in it, grows in it

every move, every month, everyday
i hope all my wishes work me right apart
from a later part of time

cause they're mine
mine all mine
like teeny signs
that stay in sight

i could watch you cough
lay you down, i could watch you get into a fit
and how you come up out of it

i could lend my hand
keep it still, i could wish in every moment
and hope for every moment filled

oh there's a lot in a day
I could wake up and say, something in the morning
and still mean it when i'm snoring
i could take my wishes touring

i could arrive
under your nose
this could come alive
and leave us stoned

every move, every month, everyday
i hope all my wishes work me right apart
from a later part in time

cause they're mine
mine all mine
like teeny signs
that stay in sight
Track Name: Nick at Night
a brother gets stuck in his throat
words of an uneven coat
"with nothing he's nothing but bare"
he thinks, cares

i feel, by now i would've swerved
but everyone takes their turns
speak up or forever
crash

a cop closes his door
two guys lay on the ground
a brother opens his mouth
but nick pouts

"i see him, dont tell me why"

oooh did we lose you
weee could have lost you

have you ever felt
something that isn't real
but you follow it with your heart
and disappear

i feel by now i would've learned
but everyone takes their turns
and you follow them with your heart
and disappear

oooh did we lose you
weee could have lost you

ooohhhuhhayuuuhhahhehh ehh ehh

"i see him dont tell me why
ill take on my own damn time
i see him dont tell me why"
Track Name: Fishes
lemon's gonna find me tonight
skimping on the juice and ice
and my thoughts will climb
leaving you me and us looking sideways

lemon's gonna hand me a knife
go get your sugar, make your slice
i'll talk to hundreds of people
who'll think this poor kid is doing it all wrong

when i go to sleep at night
there will be no one near
when i look at people
i make them look weird

well you can get up the right side
and you can take up hoping for good nights
and i can go to people and talk to them just fine
but people go to parties parties
so ladies i'm sorry i must have my
shark eyes on
i must have my shark eyes on

she says its something that you see
before its something that you learn
well my eyes have been
nothing but open

she says its something you can't plan
she says its something that will come
shes asking me to move my hand
must be thinking this poor kid is creeping me out some

well you can get up on the right side
and you can take up hoping for good nights
and ill commit to all my little wishes
and people will slip away like fishes

shark eyes on
i must have my shark eyes on

maybe it will feel like a click in a matter of time
i know im not the only one who wants a ride
i know they're not evil thoughts that cross my mind
would you look at the size of that thing
would you look at the size

i was in a field making out
panicking to fold my doubt
there are people i see
still trying to squeeze a santa out of a chimney

well you can get up on the right side
and you can take up hoping for good nights
and i can be so cute with all of her issues
and she will ask for tissues, tissues
sorry
i must have

read that wrong
must've had my head down so long
i must have my shark eyes on
i must have my shark eyes on
Track Name: Inches
i dont walk, i corkscrew
i cut through the air
there aint a wall that i couldn't get through
i couldnt tear

well curly am i dreaming?
my moods they leave me steaming
you'd think that after walking down a road
you'd get somewhere

i think it's time to retire, my progress
has been inches

well i dont care i move quick
you snakes have no idea
though you could flip me head over shoulder
over heel

well it's on my mind

face down in the water thinking god i gotta get up but
god maybe is shouldn't
freezin all my nightmares they go right into a box and then
right into the refrigerator
i'm not gonna be going anywhere soon
if you're gonna be here i'm gonna be too

and then it baloons, but it still feels like a rock
and it's never going to pop

well curly am i sober? i feel that i have learned this
over and over and over and over (x4)

i think it's time to retire, my progress has been
inches
