Track Name: Sparky Wilson
it's kind of like a hibernation
you can't stand the confrontation
and all they wanted to know is where you were living

you can't hide from everything forever
that's not an understatement
it's an understanding of what has to be done
and i won't hold my breath because you're so secluded and we're not sure if you know best anymore

You were living in the woods
and you knew exactly what to say to them that day
"Leave me alone
your world is shit.
I have mine
and I need you to agree with it"

and i had to ask you to explain to me what that meant.
Track Name: No Name, Just Socks
what i had in store for you was to take your words back
they're nothing anymore
i hope you're big enough to take when i say that we're nothing
and you know that i am right

you can't stop me from being the man i need to be, i've made some changes
and i won't repeat myself
because i've had enough of you

but i will never have enough for you

and there i go trying to be bigger than my feelings again
and i'm oh so sure that i need to get it off my chest

i'll always stand up to say what i have to whenever i need to
you can call me crazy but i know what i've said you don't have to believe me
but i'll always stand up to say what i have to whenever i need to

the end was closer than you thought
so swallow your pride and you take what you can get

the fall is harder every time
i've said what i needed to
to say what i mean to

i've said what i've needed to say
Track Name: Sky Kittens
you have everything you want and you cannot complain
but i know you want to
because there is always something wrong and all you had to be was right
to get what needed how ever you need it

i was walking out to the front porch to have a smoke and to see
hoping that we can talk all night
and he said "Brother; don't you worry about the others, because they don't have any idea what they're doing anyway"

We're all so lost
how do we know anyone?

if you've told me once, i've said it twice
you can't preach on how to live my life
i've never had it like you

it's all just meaningless moments that will stay with us

you've never had to live my life
i'm never satisfied

but i've never had to live your life
we're never satisfied
Track Name: Bobo (Day In The Life)
you can't trust your drink anymore
you keep it as close as your heart
and in the dark of the night
all you have is the streetlight to keep you from running

and all of the voices you're hearing
shouldn't mean a thing to you
if you have to look behind your back after you thing you do

you know it's wrong

when you have to lock your doors just to calm what you have started to call being better than sorry

you can never be too careful with the world the way it is
if you accept what isn't in your reach
then you can learn to dwell on better things

it's not such a viscous place, F
