Track Name: burning brides
burning brides

waking up and it's driving me crazy. fear of quakes and the ants in this room. seem to know more than they're letting on. jumping ship. Heading for a distant shore. they don't know or care what we've been fighting for. they're making strides but they're burning brides in protest. saving for the trinkets that we think are best. you hate this place so much, why don't you leave it to us? we won't squirm. we won't put up no fuss. i dreamt that I was in a civil war band. i couldn't feel my legs. but i could play almost anything with a string attached.
Track Name: haiku
haiku

i wish that i could understand haiku then i could write you a thousand hypotheses about dante -- i never wanted it anyway. i never wanted this. woo me, prove it to me -- i'm still obsessed with you. though you tell me not to be. i get down on my knees. i get down on the cold ground. even though she's not around. i wish that i could understand haiku, maybe then i could write to you…a thousand hypotheses about dante. i never wanted it anyway. i wanted you to know. to notice me. i just wanted you to know, i'm still obsessed with you.
Track Name: girls on radio
girls on radio

i want more. like i had before i tuned in to you. you spin the records all too fast. you aren’t playing what i asked for. it’s too hot to argue; too hot to talk. where's my chick rock? where's my foxtrot? girls talk women rock, what's the problem? come on find me some good chick rock. a good tick tock that you won't mock. i'm throwing down the glove don't throw in the towel. i won't switch the dial even though i've been waiting quite a while, i don't know where i’ve been, just tuned in to the wrong station on the radio.

the louder it gets; the easier to place your bets & i’m betting on this year long stand-off there’s no reason to insist, but it would be better if we starting playing the same tune. if we believed, if i believed in rock &roll; in girls on the radio. what’s enough & what’s too much? i won’t quit if you say i can’t rock. i’ll say, oh, but i can roll, so roll over baby. let's go!

i’m pulling out all the stops. i’m reading between the lines. i'm waiting for the punch line. i’m a girl. i don’t want to take up your time asking for the same song, whining the same whine. the airwaves are forgetting. is it a lie? girls on radio
Track Name: radiowaves
radiowaves

you drink in solitude, to save the world from you. that's the price I pay for drinking lemonade. if you can breath it in, it would make you sigh. If you can breath it in. we tried to build us a brain from all those radiowaves. the ones that travelled so far, from the dark distant star.

made love to paper dolls, they cut between your toes. you’re a sight that sure for these sore, tired eyes. you can breath it in, it'll make you sigh. you can breath it in. we tried to build us a brain from all those radiowaves. the ones that travelled so far, from the dark distant star. we tried to build us a brain from all those radiowaves. the ones that travelled the most, our ears still full from the toast. we tried to build us a brain from all those radiowaves. the ones that travelled so far, from the dark distant star.
Track Name: hibernation heist
We're bears, sleeping through the worst of it, walking through the fog,
we're blind to conspiracy, we guard our secrets well, with our sweet brown faces, we'll pull off anything...we're bears.

We'll dance to the end of our tethers, there's no movement in the cave, yeah, you're breathing, you're okay, no need to look each other in the eyes, it's too dark to bother, don't try. We're bears....

(amazing sax solol)

We toss uneasily in a nest of apathy, we'll wait for poetry, we'll wait for poetry, we'll wait for poetry, we'll wait for poetry and shake off shared despair, we're bears!

(bear chorus)

The forecast's looking mighty fine, we're here for the long stretch and we don't mind -- there's already a path and it's a straight line. So cross the threshold of indecision, we'll trade these coats at the fork in the road.

The reason why we dream, the reason why we dream -- we're bears!
