Triptych 02:31
I won't lie to you, mother can't you see it's true that you've not been laughing for so long it seems that you've mislaid all your dreams? I know why you're blue, father hopes now overdue stuck in the traffic jam between your ears where you sublimate your fears and file away the years I can feel your pain, sister though you don't complain who would you complain to? 'sides the one you spend all your weeknights with 'till ten we'll come get you then
2.
free guy if you shoot him in the eye don't die don't die I'm undefeated champion of the arcade I disregard all the street cred that you made you're next in line, droppin' down your token I win again, the joystick must be broken I'm undefeated champion of the arcade I'm flushing down every last cent that I'm paid for seven years, this my only calling it's closing time, I can't admit I'm stalling I'm undefeated champion of the arcade they tore it down and built another Rite-Aid now that it's gone I need to win at something come take me on, a round won't cost you nothing
3.
you know I'm standing by you know I would not lie hidden behind my smile I'll wait for a little while your new boy's so damn brash I never talked such trash but I won't speak my mind I guess I blew my stack but he'll come crawling back say you'll still be my friend and I'll be good again
4.
I know, you've got no time but can we talk now? you say everything's fine but I can't see how you can be so content when I'm here churning I guess you know all the facts that I'm stil learning Ashley Christian you caved my heart in you hardly knew him and yet you screwed him I heard you met this new guy at some lame cook-out just what did he do right to make you put out? oh fine, I'm just a jerk you've pegged me squarely next time you break someone's heart just do it fairly Ashley Christian you caved my heart in you hardly knew him and yet you screwed him
5.
I keep dreaming of you pressing to me on the bow falling backwards as we kiss morning pales compared to this I keep dreaming of you a candle lit beside the tub whisper soft by christmas light lending secrets for the night I keep dreaming of you barefoot near me on the couch encircled close within my arms heaven lost with my alarm
6.
corduroy cuffs in a world of jeans maple leaves hang from the rafters migrating birds draw Vs through the clouds if I wrote your name would you call mine aloud? Halloween night, you're one of the stars fallen beside me we would play chess and you stole all my pawns the day that we lay in the snow on your lawn I'll never forget chestnut hill in the spring or how I would dream of our hearts twined by string if I could still find us both bottled in glass I'd drown out the present and drink in the past
7.
Starling 03:52
my ears are ringing the floor is spinning the roof now open air my hands in your burnt hair my little starling in all our quarreling I did not take clear aim and now our world's in flame pathetic sovereign strewn on the mountain impaled upon my crown I struck my family down please help me, madness and blank my brain for even heaven's flame could never cleanse my name
8.
I pledge allegiance to the waves in your hair though I'm not convinced to salute the flag I pledge allegiance to the ring on your hand and the rockets burning within my mind and in DC, as they pass down their choice to send young blood burning from the bay I pledge allegiance to the light that you cast as a civil twilight engulfs our land I pledge allegiance to the sound of your feet on the way to work in the early morn I pledge allegiance to the stars in your eyes though I'm not convinced to salute the stripes and yes I guess why execs at their desks never air an arab on CNN I pledge allegiance to the sound of your name and all I ask is that you take mine
9.
Callisto 02:26
floating in the void somewhere near Ganymede without my friends a soliloquy in time of need an eclypse so common in these parts so many moons one of them has my heart Callisto betrayed me and holds me still with gravity Callisto, cold and fair found Jupiter and left me there her giant boyfriend storms rage in his eyes fills my vision with his brazen lies beneath the clouds so smooth and civilized lies violent truth he's got her hypnotized Callisto betrayed me and holds me still with gravity Callisto, cold and fair found Jupiter and left me there
10.
when you ran back inside as if you had something to hide I called you up just to see what gave I think you said I move to fast but soon today will be in the past and nothing ventured, nothing gained and when I sent that note to you I didn't know what else to do it was desperation that made me brave and all I want is to be a friend there's no advance for you to defend I never meant to make things strained I took a walk 'round the block just to search for a clue I still can't figure out how to synch up with you all those things I said outside I meant to show I had nothing to hide I don't know why I tried so hard I think it's cuz I've lost so much and you remind me of someone I trust but now I've made you raise your guard I took a walk 'round the block just to search for a clue I still can't figure out how to synch up with you
