Track Name: Figure Me Out
to everyone's surprise i'd been there all the time
it felt so right shedding off the lie

figure me out

i don't like the sight of me in your eyes
i'm naked all the time do you know what it's like?

figure me out
Track Name: Seeing The Counselor
i needed to rest
i felt i’d fallen
i needed a wish
i needed to stall
i needed to try
something at all
then she came to me

she wanted the best
she wanted it all
she wanted to sell
everything off
and i’d take the rest
she wanted to get
me off and running

i like being around her
i’m seeing the counselor
i’m seeing the counselor

now every night
when i’m in her arms
i feel like peter
stealing from paul
but i can’t resist
i’m thinking of this
and she’s there sleeping

she talks a lot
about the future
and i’m on the edge
and i’ll jump off
with her on the ledge
and everything stops
feeling real sad

i like being around her
i’m seeing the counselor
i’m seeing the counselor
Track Name: Cape Canaveral
Oh, oh, oh brother totem pole
I saw your legends lined up
And I never felt more natural
Apart, I just came apart

Please, please, please sister Socrates
You always answer with a question
Show some kindness to a petty thief
Forgive, you did forgive

Watch the migrants smoke in the old orange grove
And the red rocket blaze over Cape Canaveral
You've been a father to me
In 1960's speak
In the comatose joy that we're on TV
While the mountain's side was shining
Wild colors of my destiny

I watched your face age backwards
Changing shape in my memory
You told me victory's sweet
Even deep in the cheap seats

Hey, hey, hey mother interstate
Can you deliver me from evil
Make me honest make me wedding cake
Atone, I will atone

Wait, wait, wait mighty outer-space
All that flying saucer terror
Made me lazy drinking lemonade
A waste, it just went to waste

Like the Freon cold out the hotel door
Or the white rocket fade over Cape Canaveral
You've been a daughter to me
Your buried shoe-box grief
I felt your poltergeist love like Savannah heat
While the waterfall was pouring
Crazy symbols of my destiny

I watched your face die backwards
Little baby in my memory
You told me victory's sweet
Even deep in the cheap seats

song written by Conor Oberst
Track Name: Feeding All The Poor
i don't need a reason
it's a brand new season
i'm revving up my moped to ride

everything i ever meant
i'm saying on a pulpit
in the midst of post-apocalyptic night

i've been hard at work
feeding all the poor
they said fill my little cup
help me to get whole again

escaping from a snake pit
breaking down the markets
even with the dissension, i try

i've been hard at work
feeding all the poor
they said fill my little cup
help me to get whole again
Track Name: Why Don't You & Me?
for today
i’m reminded
my thoughts aren’t
always real life
i’m negative
a pessimist
don’t know why i feel like this

why don't you and me forget
about these complicated questions

every time i look around
i see the same things
hear the same sounds
and everyday is like the last
just waiting for a comet to go past

why don't you and me forget
about these complicated questions

that we will find a way around
Track Name: Home
running in place
running in place
everything i’ve known

losing face
losing faith
dropping keys and quarters

i’ve been praying
i’ve been praying
to do it on my own

i don’t know the answers anymore

you said
i’ll be around
if you need some helping out
i’ll be around
if you need some helping out
you'd get me you home

inner state
going crazy
every things in storms

i don’t know why
i’d even try to buy a home

everything’s crazy
everything’s making me
want to throw

out the things that i used adore
