Track Name: Jungles
It's overwhelming me, the static in the trees.
The sun is burning me, there is no cooling breeze.
We don't belong to ourselves at the mercy of the cats.

We belong to places, to places.
Strong and brave, courageous, our tiger faces.

I crouch down low and freeze, the leaves are shuffling.
Lips curl away from teeth, she has been prowling me.
We don't belong to ourselves, they've been planning their attack.

We belong to what we came from.
Leaving home will be a struggle.
Wearing masks and beating war drums, won't equip us for these jungles.
Track Name: Squares
My world is in bloom and then it’s uh-oh
It’s a colorful june and then it’s uh-oh
I’ll just go on kidding myself and I won’t ever have to worry
Everything’s ok, yeah everything everything’s ok, everything’s ok
Everythng for which I care, it turns into squares, when you’re not there
The Pyramids and stars on the map, they all appear flat, it’s kinda like that

And this is my world now where is the curvature
And this is my world now lost in the furniture
Nothing’s worse than the feelings you can’t control
Nothing’s worse than being told that you have to let go

Thinking happy thoughts will fix it uh-oh oh-no
Where did I go wrong I guess I don’t know
I’ll just go on kidding myself and everything will work itself out
Everything’s ok, yeah everything everything’s ok, everything’s ok.
Track Name: Wolf Slaying As A Hobby
Mama’s bearing her fangs right at me
Cool cubs wearing their fear like acne
Every time I flash a glare its power knocks shockwaves through their hair
Eyes bleed while my Claymore catches moonlight

Now every time I get a little brave it bends me out of shape
Every time I catch a little break I’m dying to escape

Traps sprung flailing bones and muscle
Weaponizing teenaged hustle
My bark nearly matches theirs, its wisdom and strength frightens bears
But the cross bow lies not dormant as their statuesque teeth.

As projectiles misfire, as unsteady hands wield the blade
My lips shake as brush felled by the winds mighty tongue
Mother shan’t be burying her young tonight

Now every time I get a little brave it bends me out of shape
Every time I catch a little break I’m dying.
Track Name: My Leather, My Fur, My Nails
She’s got style
she rips it off my back and puts it on her coat hook
She won’t smile
you’d best avert your eyes and not give her a second look
Things she wants
not a companion but some pages in her journal
Things go wrong
we started equal but it got way too paternal

She wants a coat made of my leather, and my fur, and my nails
She’s always cold despite the weather, she needs sun, she’s so pale
You think she’s had enough, it’s not enough, she always wants more
She always wants more of my leather, and my fur, and my nails.
Things she wants
not a companion but some pages in her journal
Things go wrong
I wouldn’t dare to all but keep it all internal
You can’t realize the danger that I’m in
If she calls me, I’m not home

Take me out of water, shrink me in the dryer
Strut around and let the world know what disaster means
Take me out of water, shrink me in the dryer
I don’t suite my skin.
Track Name: Cutie Boots
I’d stay awake for a year for every night that you slept soundly
I’d regret the once I’d hidden wishing you had found me
I’d rip holes throughout the country hoping you’d drift closer to me
I’d block the sun forever just so you could read by candlelight
I’d agree to everything to make sure that we wouldn’t fight

I wanna hold you til’ it feels like it’s been long enough to stop saying I miss you, stop saying I miss you
I wanna kiss you til’ you know without me telling you that I will never leave you, I will never leave you.

I’d live life without my legs to make sure yours stopped hurting
I’d give up my will to live to make sure yours is burning

I’d stop loving, caring, trying if you’d never wake up crying.
Track Name: Baby Hammers
How did you find my heart in the quarter machine.
How did you read my brain on the projector screen.
How did you make my tongue always taste like toast and jam.
How did you turn my blood into a hologram.

You’re dripping like honey, sunny up and so runny.
I’m careful so I don’t slip and fall.
I feel a bit grumpy, I’m a chump cause’ I’m chumpy.
It turns out that you don’t care at all.

We’ll take it slow.
Changed my mind about going as fast as we could go, fire is nipping at my toes.
We’ll take it fast.
Changed my mind I knew it wouldn’t, it wouldn’t last,
This may sound a little crass.
Drink, together we will drink the ash that falls into waterfalls.
They will stop their ageing, they will crawl crawl crawl.
Track Name: Parrot
Most often I stay level headed as they say I’m on the ball.
Sometimes my mind wanders and I don’t know where he’ll end up at all.
Then I feel like a pet store parrot ever spouting words.
And when I’ve had a few too many I get quite excited.
I start talking very loudly and this is when.

I’ve said a fair share of stupid things that I can’t hide.
My wonderful friends just roll their eyes, stay by my side.

I might start talking about politics with which you disagree.
I might try to be subtle mocking what you hold in high esteem.
When I’m not in my right mind I like attention all on me.
Sometimes I get obnoxious, my ego gets the best of me.
Sometimes I even realize that I might risk physical harm.
That’s when you glare into my eyes and clench your teeth and squeeze my arm.
Then I feel like a pet store parrot ever spouting words.
And when i’ve had a few too many I get quite excited.
I start talking very loudly and this is when.
Track Name: Kings And Centipedes
Dying to know, how did the rumors lock up your majesty.
And will the new ones set you free.
We fall to our knees, bang the timpanis.
We’ve searched the dusty roads, our faces lost their glow.

Rise to your feet my god you must maintain your dignity.
Rise to your feet my god what have you got to prove to me.
Rise to your feet my god you must maintain your dignity.
There’s lots of middle ground between the kings and centipedes.

Did I really change the way you think about everything.
Was it the chemicals in your brain.

We all feel pain and our hearts will all be split in two.
It’s pouring rain and there’s nothing we can do.

We fall to our knees, bang the timpanis.
Band the timpa, bang the timpa, bang the timpanis.
Track Name: Find Love (Bonus Track)
I know how to find love hidden deep inside ya.
I know how to find love hidden deep inside ya.

Dancing, rejoicing, they're raising their voices.
Their hearts are enormous, the sight is so gorgeous.
I know how to find love hidden deep inside ya.
It is so clear you never let go.
I know how to find love hidden deep inside ya.
Look in the mirror, it's a map home.

Brothers, sisters, don't you know they miss you.
Workers, preachers, they have much to teach you.
I know how to find love hidden deep inside ya.
I know how to find love hidden deep inside ya.
Mothers, nurses, be careful how you're treated.
Nobles, scholars, we are not beneath you.

Bedrooms, houses, contain nothing with in them.
Planets, systems, they will show you wisdom.

When you come back I will throw open the doors.
Ignore the past, I will offer you my shoulder.
Come to me if you can't find support.
Fall in to me, I will not let you fall short.
Track Name: Magic Stones (Bonus Track)
I found the last of the magic stones.
Lying in fields, hiding under bones.

Hey, oh, hours of fun on the beach.
Hey, oh, hours of fun on the beach.

Future me, you've got to learn to be alone.
Part of me wants to ignore how much i've grown.

They'll change the maps just to make more room.
One day they'll stop staring at the moon.
