First E.P.

GIRL GETS DOWN

Check the gauge
Just one more time
I think it’s gonna blow
It’s over the red line

If you never let me go
You’ll send me through the atmosphere
Straight through Saturn’s rings
It’s better than anything

She lights me up
When she gets down
Girl gets down

 

Shake it for me
Once before I go
Two times, I’ll lose my head
Three and I’ll be six feet under

Kings of countries couldn’t keep their subjects low
If one should hear
About the gift she keeps inside
Revolution is here

 

HOPE ROAD FLATS

I can’t see from the glare off the road
I should have left another time of day
The wheels fell off my car, so I’ll miss it
‘cus it kept me cool and dry on the way

This humid city is drowning me
I feel like I could swim up through the sky
And wrap myself up in anything
Thats not good for me because I want to feel something

Six months and I want to believe it
But just how long will I miss you?

The dogs bark at my heels
And the bees buzz ’round my head
Every sweat soaked stumbling step
Leads me further from our bed

On the way I wrote the story of us
Nobody loses nobody wins
A general warning to the audience
It contains gratuitous silence—

 

Twelve months and I want to believe it
But just how long will I miss you?

On this cracked-top crumbling road
I saw a solitary thing
Scratching up seeds from the past
A black bird with a broken wing

I know your guilt it hides and haunts you
But better days will come around
We were always to weak to kill it
But you finally put it down—

And this feels right
Come on, come on, come on, now I gotta believe it
Because now your gone
And I quit you

 

IF IT HAPPENED TO YOU

They say, “he’s crazy”
But I see the truth
Did you ever think, maybe
He’s a reflection of you?

They told him to be a man
That’s, exactly, what he tried to do

Maybe you’d understand
If it happened to you

I heard you say it
Through your constant moan
Why can’t I say it
Until I leave my home?

They told him to be a man
That’s, exactly, what he tried to do
Maybe you’d understand
If it happened to you

 

And if it don’t seem fair
Tell us all, again, what we should do

And if it don’t seem fair
Tell us all, again, what we should do
Because I can’t wait for you
To talk to me

Walking around you
Like I did before
There’s no more eggshells
For me to ignore

You told me to be a man
That’s, exactly, what I tried to do
Maybe you’d understand
If it happened to you

 

I NEVER KNEW YOU COULD BE SO LOW

That call
It changed me
That call
Blew my mind

The images that you
You gave to me
They won’t
Let me sleep

I never knew you could be so low
I never knew you could be so low

Your bags a drag
There’s no mistaking this
The solution is simple
The solution is this

We’ll put you way up high
Above all of this
Way up high
Above all the shit and the piss

 

I never knew you could be so low
I never knew you could be so low

But, I’ve got my tools in hand
So, don’t you fret or sweat

I will save you
I will lift you up
I will dry you off
I won’t let you down

I will save you
Never blame you
I will lift you up
I won’t let you drown

I never knew you could be so low
I never knew you could be so low

 

SEE WHAT YOU BLEED

Here he comes again
You never were my friend
I only knew
Just what you drew

You had your chance to say
That you wanted to walk away
You chose to ignore it
You chose to keep score

I don’t see the point
I think you may have joined
Up with your past
It’s ruling your ass

Down it goes
When you show off
You’re empty
And pointing at me

You want it so bad
You fell to your knees
You cut off your hands
Just to see what you bleed

 

Sometimes making sure
Only makes things worse
You looked in our eyes
And told us your lies

You never will admit
That, maybe, you’re just shit
Any day now
You might see how

You say I patronize
But, I think it’s just the pipe
Talking too loud
It’s made you too proud

Down it goes
When you show off
You’re empty
And pointing at me

You want it so bad
You fell to your knees
You cut off your hands
Just to see what you bleed
