Track Name: Habitat
Surviving is the hardest part of living
Especially when your bones are bound to railroad tracks
But you don't need us to tell you that it will be a.o.k
Especially when your bones are bound to railroad tracks

Mouths touching but hardly breathing
Smooth sailing but hardly swimming
We were walking with headlights behind us when
Your eyes spinning left me dizzy

With arms around your supple back
We dropped our fear into your lap
They wouldn't be here if we knew that you would be a.o.k
Especially if your bones were off the railroad tracks

Mouths touching but hardly breathing
Smooth sailing but hardly swimming
We were walking with headlights behind us when
Your eyes spinning left me dizzy
Track Name: Want Out
I thought I told you along the way that I want out
But you didn't hear me

Perhaps I said never mind

When I called you along the way you heard me out
But static pampered phoned in progress
But I couldn't tell you along the way,
So hear me out,
I'm glad you missed it the first time

But there's no time for never mind
Track Name: Skim Milk
Don't let them skin and bone me when I die
Remind them that I once was too alive
To be boiled down to essence or watered down to presence
Don't let them skin and bone me when I die

Just because they skinned and boned you when you died
Doesn't mean that you weren't once too alive
To be boiled down to essence or watered to down to presence
Because they skinned and boned you when you died

But I know they'll skin and bone me when I die
Though they know that I was once too alive
So celebrate my essence and try to feel my presence
But I know they'll skin and bone me when I die

We know they'll skin and bone us when we die
Lest they remember that we were once too alive
So celebrate our essence and try to feel our presence
Because we (I) know they skinned and boned us when we died.
Track Name: Such as This!
Last year you were worthless
This year its worth it to tour on Thanksgiving
Last year you were helpless
Now there's not a reason left to be livid
This year would have hurt less
If I found that one-way ticket out of here that
Turned out to be a friendship
God Damn, its not the one from last August

The ceiling floor lies beneath the bed that you broke every night of that year

Along came December
Waxing academic in an attic in Alston
Two spliffs to spill the bucket
Of fear that had struck me when

I realized I was going to die and there was still my ticket to find

It doesn't help that you found it first
