dkelvin This is a true gem with songs Ray Davies would love to write these days. Some should be standards, would we live in a world where to have taste still meant something. Strongly emotional this will be the music of spring for many as it is for me. Favorite track: chasing down the sun.

Track Name: fcking drones
I can feel it in my brain somedays & drinkings the only way to forget what i have heard and learned of integrals and right angles & i dont know if im sure that im sure of anything anymore so ill take whats given me quietly and dream of the days before my friend when you would call me on the phone when youd call me just because theres always something on your mind that said my matt what big teeth you have & if youd close your eyes instead and youd love some just because, just close your eyes instead & youd be free a bird can ever be

I can feel it in my bones these drones are coming down to destroy everybody that i know OH NO guess thats just the way it goes & i dont know if im sure that im sure of anything anymore so ill take whats given me quietly and dream of the days before my friend.
Track Name: eyes
I was lost at sea nobody to save me this time then i caught your eyes now i know ill make it out alright. Unlike before, when you forget about him ill forget about her and all the holes in the roof where the water leaked through it all. OOoooo OOoooo now i know we'll make it or we die.
Track Name: untitled, no. 1
come back down you will find the world has changed changed for good like it should have been before

& when you die you will find the world has changed changed for good like it should have been before like it was when you were born

there was a bang brought us here it changed our world planets formed from the storm sometime before like it was when you were born

oh but maybe you will find.;
Track Name: h. roark
buildings are all the same
nothing new, nothing changed at all
& henry's the only one
sees right through
he said "you're too good for what you do!"

you have the silver spoon
in your mouth
gonna chip your tooth

build 'em so fucking tall
that if you fall
you would never even hit the ground
Track Name: canadian girl
Sitting at the end of the bar
It's two for one drinks & I'm one drink too far
It's times like these I seem to picture you
Wonder do you still find joy in simple things?
Like the earth beneath your feet

As autumn leaves fall soft & swept away

It's funny how the years they seem to fade
I can't seem to picture your face anymore
bet you're still lovely as can be
But are you lonely just like me?

As autumn leaves fall soft & swept away
Track Name: summer's gone
What does it mean?
I see a shadow on the street
Is it really me?
Or am I imaginary?

cuz summer's gone & I don't wanna be in this place anymore
I don't wanna see your face anymore
When the water meets the shore and erodes
all the people you grew out of with your clothes
they come & go

What does it mean?
I see my photo on the screen
Is it really there?
Or am I just hyperaware?

I don't mind, that you're not mine (anymore)
Track Name: l'été no. 2
I don't mind, that you're not mine

Ça ne me dérange pas que tu ne sois pas le mien
Track Name: why?
there's a hole in your head and it lets all the sunlight right in what will grow no one knows water the seed maybe you will grow old. when you die there will be no one left at your side but, you know im no good with sentences no good with these conversations & after a while it is plain to see, that there's a hole in my head where i used to dream of people and colors and things blend together eventually right in front of me splitting at the seams as theyre meant to be.

why? i dont know.
Track Name: mama (i don't feel alright)
im waking at the break of dawn to call you on the telephone & tell you mama i dont feel alright tell you mama i dont feel at all like i used to.

& Ill call you on the telephone tell you mama i feel so all alone tell you mama i dont feel alright tell you mama i dont feel at all like i used to.
Track Name: autumn leafs
autumn leafs are on their way, and i met you just the other day wont you sit and stay for a while with me, maybe?

seasons change & seasons go with parallelograms in the snow wont you walk on that old ocean floor with me, maybe?

so cut the cord. when i need you more than i needed you before & lonely nights and all those other guys they tell you so, hold on.
Track Name: frozen lakes
Sometimes before
When you promised, that you'd promise sometimes
I'd see you suddenly disappear

& It's 12 long hours
Till the sunrise & I can put on my sunglasses again
Pretend that I'm like you (like you)

When it shines like diamonds at your feet
The sidewalks shining just for me
How long will you stay?
How long till I'll say?

Meet you out on those frozen lakes
Track Name: the curious cat's eyes
they say you're savant say you're savant say you're a wordsmith, but your word is myth when you turn yourself on turn yourself off a newfound nouveau a calloused cold you cried "i saw the light! i seen the light! i saw the light leave your dyin' eyes but your cat has nine lives cat has nine lives cat has nine lives left so live a bit before you're dead and gone and the worms are all crawlin on you

time marches on time marches on time marches westward with the setting sun on these old afternoons nothing to do nothing is something when it's spent with you because i love you more i love you more i love you this much (no this much) but still time marches on time marches on time marches westward with the setting sun & when the setting's done and the mobs are all crawling on you

oh mama im sick of it all

Track Name: chasing down the sun
All the troubadours, are staring down the sun.
their pain dont hurt anyone, dont hurt anyone else.

so they called em off, called em on the phone. said "your baby is comin home"

We're all chasing down the sun

so they called em off & called her on the phone. Then theyll hold you like youre the only one. but you bleed just like anyone else.

we're all chasing down the sun.
