Track Name: The First One
i’ll carry the new edition home in the rain before your show if you help me complete it/i’m tangled in wires and cables still/if you help me i need it/the first one I’ve ever had on my own my tiny apartment make sure i don’t miss the morning/twenty and three-quarters then at midnight still it came and went can i fix your jeans as payment/i’m balancing quarters in a stack/because it looks like you might need it if you repair this broken instrument/the second one i’ve ever had on my own in my tiny apartment make sure I don’t miss the morning/another one i’d like to call you my own and the tables turning
make sure i don’t miss the morning/i want you to know/all your postcards are records from our friends, and we’ve got space for it/the neighbors are knocking at the door i can’t hear a word over “kind of blue”/i want you to be the one who replaces my needle cartridge now/ the boxes are empty we can finally call this our new home.
Track Name: Older/Wiser
a snowflake, four leaf clover, sitting pretty on the front of your shoulder/from a book you read in high school from the valley to your home with a park view/on your drive up, the mill city, between furniture and food for the kitty/you should hit it closer to home
good is bad is nice is yes is good is fine is no/that might not belong to you/ the cloth that you cut is the one that’s on me/how did it go?/there is safety in small numbers, threw it in the fire and blamed it on each other/needed places safe for fainting, promise “he won’t bite” with eyes half-closed, refraining/sour sympathy, half cold meals, off to bed at night, disaster on your heels/soggy wallet, broken window, bloody in the hallway ill be fine i think that i’ll go i can’t stay up every night/we’ll stay there long enough to say goodbye/here’s to safety, being happy, we are foils all, to that everlasting/victims, only circumstantial here, i’m waiting there, you’re flying off the handle.
Track Name: Science Fiction

audio captured by Kate's Dad.
Track Name: He Travels in a Suit
you’re so much taller than i thought that you would be/it’s going to be harder to push you away/while you’re getting high inside a trailer with your friends/i haven’t brought anything back for you/“send me a picture so i know that it’s you”/with so many boxes it’s hard to tell/“you kiss like my mother” with a bottle in your hand/i’m not going home with you/you like me because i don’t dress like other girls/and i’m barely repulsed by that shade of green/i told junebug to tell you that i’ll be leaving soon/i’ll see you in february/staying up too late, we’re both miserable/“my boyfriend’s at home”/i hope you find someone.
Track Name: Partial Paradigm
tap-dancing down the sidewalk towards the stairs/a balancing act, when the concrete’s like water/in the sunlight, seems so friendly, you just just act so wise/if you give me a dollar I bet that I’ll piss off these guys/she said “the truth will set you free” but I’m just listening/crammed in a file, i can’t believe/an errant branch is headed for your face/the summer is bleeding through layers of silk crepe/wipe your hands dry, we’re still sleeping, just you hold tight/i’ll raise up glasses if you raise the stakes in a fist fight/take me home now. lead me home now. i want to go.
