Track Name: Small Doses
I couldn't see the conversation shifting
Oh, who am I kidding?
I couldn't even see my own vision slipping away
But now I'm nearsighted and it's clear as night that
I am the bittersweet, choking the trees
And I won't let it breathe, I can't let it breathe
But I can be

So good in small doses
But I know there's only so much I can say
And it's not much
But I have my moments, some days

So let's do something, I've got to move something
'Cause times folding in
And sick sobriety's coming
If I was under the weather, hell, now I'm above it
But it's nails on a chalkboard for the man on a wire
With the world on his back and his feet on fire
It can be

So good in small doses
But I know there's only so much I can take
And it's not much
But I have my moments, some days
Track Name: Strange Resolution
He met a lovely lady the other day
She said "you can bend me backwards, beautiful"
To him, but he was such an ugly child

He said
I was abused, beat black and blue
Til I realized I could do
With more charming company
And now they come to me

But I don't wear it like a badge
(Shake it off, shake it off)
Don't wear it like a badge, shake it off
(Fall in love with the world again)

There's no regret in me
I have nothing but love and pity
Could anybody ask for more? Not I
I couldn't dream

And when the monkeys touch the monolith
They learn to love the remix
They learn to live inside of it

But they don't wear it like a badge
(Shake it off, shake it off)
Don't wear it like a badge, shake it off
(Fall in love with the world again)
Track Name: Primordial Blues
Good morning, fallout, I've been down these days
Tripping off the radiation rays
I think I just need somewhere to begin again
It's as original as sin
Just original as

Atom bombs or bible psalms
I've just this feeling that it's all coming down on me
Beg your pardon
It's just a feeling

I get so wrapped up in beauty, I can't speak
My eyes roll back, my tongue goes slack and weak
I think I'm dying slowly from the outside in
It's as original as sin
Just original as

Atom bombs or bible psalms
I've just got this feeling that it's all coming down on me
Beg your pardon
It's just a feeling

I had a friend
She joined a cult
Moved to Japan
But that's neither here nor there...

Gloria in excelsis deo
Can I get a hey-o?
Can I get a witness?
I didn't mean to get religious
Or bible psalms
I've just got this feeling that it's all coming down
Beg your pardon
Track Name: Riding
Riding in your car
We're looking at the sunrise
Though we haven't gone too far
We got lost
Track Name: Back Against the Ocean
Marshall Cady, Cesar, and Sadie
Are up to old tricks, thick strips, and big tips
But they're just unwitting actors in a movie about you
And they're working on their lines

When I can't get through to you
I tilt at windmills and at oncoming cars
I lie across the crosswalks
When I'm tired
And I'm so tired

Daughter of the solstice
My back against the ocean

So you sit in your acropolis
Just counting on your fingers and toes
Each one another year that you need not live
As you hold your breath just to spite your nose

Kind daughter of the solstice
My back against the ocean
Kind daughter of the solstice
What you drive me to
My back against the ocean
There's nothing I can do

So balance be with me between bicycle and bumper
Undercarriage don't pull me undertow

Daughter of the solstice
What you drive me to
My back against the ocean
There's nothing I can do
