Track Name: I Know, I Know, I Know
Did you know there's water in the sand?
Wherever that my kisses land
All my true loves have such tiny hands.
God wants you more than you could ever want Him.

I know, I know, I know.

When you get tired of me
Get so old and tire of me
Make me a tire swing and hang me from a tree
Under the sun
It shines for you, you know.
It shines only for you, you know.

I know.

Hallelujah!

Some people are hip-hop
Some people are bubblegum
Some people are girly-pop
But you, my love, you're techno.
You make me dance, make me dance, make me dance.

So how am I to decide
When everyone's the love of my life?
I choose you, my Lord!
I choose you, my Love!

Are you singing in the light
Or are you singing in the dark?

I quit my job, burned my name into your lawn
I moved into the forest with the faeries and the fawns
I no longer get your text messages
But I will send you paper boats down the river
I will send you love notes down the river

So how am I to decide
When everyone's the love of my life?
I choose you, my Lord!
I choose you, my Love!
Track Name: Hey Baby
Would you go out with me?
Yes, no, or maybe (Circle one!)
You can be honest, I don't mind.
I apologize if I come off a little behind the times.

Hey baby!

I'll admit I am a bit rusty
And my dancing shoes are dusty
And I don't know what love is, but
Something tells me this is what it must be.

So would you be my little baby?
Yes, no, or maybe? Wassup?
Because Sugar, I would blow your mind.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a man as hard as me
That you could break open like candy
And I don't know what love is, but
Something tells me this is what it must be.
Track Name: Waiting For Your Love
I've just been hanging 'round this stupid ghost town
Just waiting for your love
Oh, when's it gonna come?

I've just been hanging 'round this stupid ghost town
Just waiting for your love
To knock me down, down, down, down, down.

I've just been hanging 'round at the dog pound
Looking for a home, just looking for a home
Oh, I should've known.

I've just been killing time with all these friends of mine
Waiting for the one, just waiting for the one
To show me how to have some fun.

I want, I want

To see you
To know you

I'm waiting for your love.
Track Name: Top 8
I see you've taken me out of your Top 8.
This is such a beautiful way to communicate.
"Weren't you supposed to be someplace by now?"
I am laughing, but I don't know how.

The cops and the doctors
And the coroner took all my friends away.
But all my birds fit in a locket
That I put inside my pocket everyday.
And all the tears on your cheek
Mean you are strong and I am weak
But in a week or two or three, I mean tomorrow
It'll be okay.

Clutching to a bike wheel, I have not moved my hands!
Look around you, how can this be real?
You have not moved your hands!
I didn't plant that tree! I never saw the seeds!
I only poured the sand upon your perfect feet!

I am so tired of running away at sunset
And crashing into a sunny day.
I am so fascinated by the burning down of every town
Where I decide to stay.
The church and the mongrels
And the seagulls carry all the dead away
And in my heart I know what I have done
But what would I say?

I'm sorry? Or thank you?
Bless me Father, for I have sinned real bad this time?
I prayed for all my meals
And the Lord taught me how to kneel
But I just don't know
If they're gonna let me out of this town alive!

My Father taught me how to live
Before He taught me how to pray.
My Father moved my hands
When He told me to go outside and play
And I came back dirtied by the ground.

Forgive me! Forgive me! I want to live!
I'll miss you! I'll miss you more than I can say!
Eating your ice cream on a lazy day!
I want to see you again,
Even if it's only on MySpace!
Forgive me! Forgive me! I want to live!!!
Track Name: Me & My Kin
Well we moved in here,
We seemed to agree
That we could, in theory, co-exist peacefully
For a month or three
It seemed to be like riding winged things in my dreams.

But eventually, unfortunately,
I had not six roommates, but two, just two!
Until one morn' I awoke
And found them crawling from my shoes.
Now I had not two roommates
But twenty-two roommates to a room!
Forest mice had won the war and had a baby boom!

There's mice in the the cupboards
And there's mice on the chair!
There are moo-mice in the toaster
And there's yellow mice in my hair!
There are blue mice hanging haiku's
Upon our frigidaire!
Red mice eating crumbs and making babies
And bashing each others' faces in!
(...Huh?)

So don't come around messin' messin' messin' messin'
messin' messin' messin' messin' messin' messin'
messin' messin' with my kin!!!
We stick together!
We're family!

All two or all three or all nine hundred and fifty trillion nine hundred and eighty-four billion six hundred and thirty-three million five hundred and ninety six thousand and, um.....seventy three!
Track Name: Piano in the Garage
Got a piano in the garage
It treats me well.
It's like a bell.

Nobody knows about it.
Nobody cares about it.
I thought I'd paint it red.

It's just me and her
I thought I'd paint her red.
It's just me and her
And some old pairs of shoes.
It's just me and her
A toolbox and our blues.
It's just me and her
I thought I'd paint her red.

She sings so out of tune, but I can't throw her out
I love her too much
She sings so out of tune, but I can't throw her out
I never touch her, but I love her so much

My piano in the garage
Bells and hammers for my family!
My piano in the garage
Bells and hammers for my friends!
Track Name: Only Black Keys
The last kiss she ever game me
She was wearing lipstick for someone else
She wiped it from my face
Then got in her car and drove away.

She says you can't love someone
If you don't trust them,
But I know that's all bullshit.
I love everyone I know
But I don't trust them as far as I can throw them.

Maybe she kisses only black keys.
I'm not crazy!
I'll make her my wife some day, you'll see.

Can't you hear the wedding bells?
Or are those chiming for someone else?

The locust ate him
Then she replaced him.
The locust ate him
Then she replaced him.
The locust ate him
Then she replaced him.
The locust ate him
Then she replaced him.
