Track Name: Family Tree
You and I would
March down halls
Doing the death dance
Punching the walls
Always a little bitter
Of the kids with proper sitters
But our bruja told us what to do
And you, you would bleed
But not me, I would

Step step step and go
Wait wait wait go slow

First it's you,
I'm not giving in giving in
I'll be sitting with the devil
Eating dinner and
He's waiting for me

I'm the winner the winner
The last apple falling from
The family tree

And the ghosts in the halls
They follow me
Brother can't you see?
There's a fee
Don't leave me here all alone
Like the last apple falling from
The family tree

Slicing through the x-ray night
Using a chainsaw
Hiding a knife
I grip the blade
I eat the sun
And all the hound dogs gather round
release the hounds!
But you still need the Queen's honey
Rotting in our family tree

And I just
Step step step and go
Wait wait wait go slow
(repeat chorus)

I let go I let go
I never wanted it to show
I let I let go
I never wanted it to show
But as the skin pulls back
And the bark comes through
The family tree
Is coming from inside of me
I let go
I let go
I hit the ground running and I just
Step step step and go
Wait wait wait go slow

(Repeat Chorus X2)
Track Name: Steady Hum Drum
Caught a glimpse of your cloud
Moving westbound
and proud
Keeping an eye
We’re just one sky apart

And the Snap boom of thunder
Causing a steady Hum Drum
Under your shade
We’re just one sky apart

Captain,
I’m not sure
We’re following the same course
I’ve got my eyes
On a different kind of goal

Faster she’s gaining speed
Look there we’ll take the lead
No not there
That’s an
aeroplane!
Just look at those jet trails
Look up can’t
you see
That’s not your cloud
It’s just movement in the galaxy!
We’ve broken the sound barrier
Like the sound of a heart
Can’t you hear my echo?
We’re just one sky apart

And the racing of jet trails
This may not be fair
But
I’m keeping an eye
To the racing of your heart.

And the
cradling of lightening
Causing a static chock shock
Keeping an eye
we’re just one sky apart

(Repeat Chorus)

I've got my X-Rays
All the radar's in place
Don't forget my eye

I've got one eye peeled to the sky
Keeping an eye...
Track Name: Apollonia
Apollonia I need your spark
give me momentum
chasing the dark
I was 24
Keeping shadows
under sidelines
slipping into dyno-holes
footing coming
tumbling in
as I nestle in between the kinks.
never had I wanted
Did I need
some kind of sorcery to call my own.

Apollonia I'm a wool-eyed wanderer.
Apollonia I get cold like a stone.

So I followed Ghandi
he lead me to the sea
dipping me he said, "I was 22, I was 18."
When the circus lights got bright at night.
Under trapeze you give me a high five
next to the girls dancing the cooch
and I'd never seen
my own face
I was so afraid until Apollonia came.

Apollonia see midnight crack
little purple blue
pushing through black
I was 23
playing piano logically
slipping into dyno-holes
footing coming
tumbling in
as I nestle in between the kinks.
Blinking to calm my tears
My cracking face showed
that all I have is doubt.

Apollonia I'm a wool-eyed wanderer.
Apollonia I get cold like a stone.

My colossus steps into the frosted Atlantic
and I feel a change
I was 22, I was 18
When the circus lights got bright at night.
Under trapeze you give me a high five
next to the girls dancing the cooch
and I'd never seen
my own face
I was so afraid until Apollonia

Apollonia, Apollonia, I'm a wool-eyed wanderer
Apollonia, Apollonia, I get cold like a stone.
I get cold like a
I get cold like a
I get cold like a stone, I get cold like a,
Under trapeze you give me a high five
next to the girls dancing the cooch
Under trapeze you give me a high five
next to the girls dancing the cooch
I'd never seen my own face
I was so afraid until Apollonia
Apollonia, Apollonia, I'm a wool-eyed wanderer
I get cold like a stone
I get cold like a stone
Track Name: Baker
A bitter batter
baking a cake like a baker
and you said I could
do anything that I like.
But, I never could I,
get the temperature right
so I put in a toothpick
coming out dry as a bone.

And I've gotta gun
I demand the fun
So you better listen closely to me
And I see the sun
floating with the nuns
I'll be the last one standing when all this is done.

I went for some milk, see
then took a train straight outta town
and you sent out a signal
wondering what's taking so long
A preacher, A doctor, you sent everybody
searching for me.
I cocked back the trigger
Let's see how far they get with me.

And I've gotta gun
I demand the fun
So you better listen closely to me
And I see the sun
floating with the nuns
I'll be the last one standing when all this is done.

And you say I'm no baker
And I beg to differ
And you say I'm no baker
My gun begs to differ
My gun begs to differ
Baker
Baker
Baker
