Track Name: Thread
I heard someone say a word of you
I lost two weeks time before I knew
It's no use
I can't pull my mind off of you

Your thread is littered round my lonely room
Your lips should be on mine, and really soon
I'm such a fool
I can't pull my mind off of you

I know, cause everybody says it's true
Someone will want me more than you do
But someone isn't you
I'd rather be your little fool
I can't pull my mind off of you
Track Name: Weeds
In the road
I left my shadow
In the desert sun

Sure enough
The weeds tumbled over
Like a voice saying "you are alone"

Been a year
Since weary tires
I thought the voice was long, long gone

Don't you love me anymore?

In a time
I often traveled
Down to you, down to you

In a sheet
Wrapped in feeling
I slept so soft
With your breath on my back

Don't you love me anymore?

Down the dark road
I stoked a fire
And now it's gone
Track Name: The Disillusionment
It's like wading in a fog
In a San Francisco sky to me
It's the disillusionment
Of a place locked in my memory

Only not that long ago
We were holed up in the world of your sheets
Oh and wisdom makes you strong
I got wiser and I still feel weak

All your friends
Were my friends for a while
And you taught my worried heart
It could stretch a mile

I keep showing up at your door
Like a spokesman for the poor and meek
You must admit it makes you feel
You have the strength to bend steel with ease

All those whispers in the dark
Of the things you only said to me
Now i replay them in my heart
On a hollowed, thumping cinema screen

All your friends
Were my friends for a while
And you taught my worried heart
It could stretch a mile
Track Name: Beast
Hold onto me
I am afraid of the night
Don't turn me out to the beast

Your touch
So real, so not
You make me a prisoner

And I'm better off now
Braver without you, somehow
Better off now
I'm braver without you, somehow

Hold onto me
I am afraid of the night
Don't turn me out to the beast

Your eyes
So real, so not
You make me a prisoner

But I'm better off now
Braver without you, somehow
Better off now
I am braver without you somehow

Cut me out, cut me out
All alone in the dark
Like where I started
Cut me out, cut me out
Cause I need to be lonely
I need to be lonely

You're nothing but a beast in the night
Track Name: Paper Heart
Glad I went down to the harbor
The city you love
Though you're a stranger
I'm at ease

Glad that my heart is only paper
'Cause God it'd be hard
To wear this weight on my sleeve

And we drove a bit south
To see the pretty trees
And the moon above was blue
I could see it in you, too

Oh but it's evening now
And I gotta believe, I gotta believe

Glad that we both could see the stars shine
Even though I was on land
And you, the sea

Glad that my heart is only paper
'Cause God it'd be hard
To wear this weight on my sleeve

And we met years ago
Though I must have been a child
'Cause I would have kissed you then
And maybe we would be, still

Oh but it's evening now
And I gotta believe, I gotta believe
Or I'll never sleep
Track Name: Horses Run
I'm still now
While I let it go
Hell, what do I know
But what I feel?

The horses run
Free as they come
Hell, It's the last ship home

I wrote of you
What I thought I knew
Hell, what do I know
As you slip out the door

All I wanna do is last with you
All I wanna do is last with you

Did I frighten you?
Guess it'll teach me soon
Cut open my body for you
And watch it burn

All I wanna do is last with you
All I wanna do is last with you

I'll put you away
The remnants of you
You're still all around my room
That's something I need to do

The horses run
Free as they come
Hell, it's the last ship home

The horses run
Free as they come
Hell, it's the last ship home
