    Killer Whale
    The places we are are cold and slow
    Everyone else is gone
    Don't let me go
    How do you feed the love you know?
    Everyone else is gone
    Don't let me go
    I can't reach you
    The waves rush to keep you
    You know you don't get through the way like you used to
    Landscape is littered with thoughtless flow
    Everyone else is gone
    Don't let me go
    Trains never come
    Stop the snow
    Everyone else is gone
    Don't let me go
    I can't reach you
    The waves come to eat you
    You know you don't get through the way like you used to
    I can't see you
    Submerged in the see-through
    Underwater killer whale

    Open/House
    Open up your window
    Show me where you are
    The light inside your house keeps everybody out
    But there must be a reason for the way you are
    The rabbit bit the cord
    And everyone ignored him
    Teenagers know that they're going crazy
    They run from stage to stage to stage
    Their broken bones are just another part of the play
    Clenched jaw and always raw frustration
    Subject to change and change and change
    My heart, for now, is just another part of where you could stay
    Hurt house with all the windows open
    See out through layers of soft mistakes
    My flash on you is just another part of the play.

    Gladest
    I couldn't stand to show you
    But it's harder now
    Love makes a sound like all things falling
    Farther and farther down
    What about the waiting end
    What did you find out in that shining darkness
    There with handfuls of wet money and breathing freedom
    I didn't know how to show you
    But it's harder now.

    Bleed Blood
    If you don't feed me anything
    I'll be the last to bloom
    In some summer-soft epiphany
    Thinking about the humans
    Tumors on top of tumors
    On top of the reprimanding
    Turn off your house
    Tear up your heart
    Turn down your hooves
    And hand in your feelings
    You're feeling all the time
    You're breathing
    Even when there's nothing on your mind
    You and your friends all place your bets
    Who'll be the first one erased?
    I get off work at seven o clock
    And then I get replaced
    It seems so cold
    And it seems so strange
    To watch beautiful people when they kiss on the street
    How do you feel when you aren't yourself?
    You're trying to catch up with a feeling
    And then you are bleeding blood again
    We're bleeding from the same place
    And we always try
    If you don't feed me anything
    I'll be the last to bloom
    In some city-wide soft summary
    Of someone else's beauty
    Terror on top of terror
    On top of the light that gets in
    Don't get upset
    And don't forget to listen to your feelings
    Feel it all the time
    You're bleeding
    And love is wanting more.

    Cloud Center
    Drink up all the houses you lived in and then you threw away
    Go with your friends cause you're going to anyway
    "Hands in the poison" means
    "I've spent so long pretending
    When I start understanding I get scared."
    Write down the address you left and turn in the keys
    On your heels
    Believe what you're going to believe
    You know that when you add up all the places you've been
    And when you sift through all the ceilings you've stayed with
    And when you drink up all the houses
    It won't ever be enough
    Life as a shorty shouldn't be so rough
    They do what they want to do
    And they'll ask you.

    You Are A Force
    When you are alone you are a force
    And you have what you need
    When you are alone you are a force
    And you have what you want
    Give back
    Give some new love
    When you are alone you are a force
    An invisible force
    At the depths of the sea
    In the ocean of streets.

    Summer School
    I can't see you after class
    Water wheel
    Why a lifetime has to pass?
    Did they lock you out again?
    Someone said "No one's here to be your friend."
    No one hears you when you cry alone
    No one hears you when there's no one home
    I can't talk to you no more
    But I'm hiding in the pile of clothes on your floor
    And I'm still shouting from the street
    Can't hear, some song on repeat
    When they locked you out
    I was on the inside
    When they locked you out my insides screamed
    When they locked you out
    I saw the future like you see a memory.


    Young Diamond
    You don't have to know right now
    And you don't have to have everything figured out
    We won't let you starve
    We won't let you fail
    The invisible arms of all your friends are there
    If you drink too much and you throw up
    We'll be there
    We'll hold your hair
    We'll take care
    Baltimore can be a scary place when you're all alone
    But please know you're not alone
    We won't let you feel like everythings over
    Won't let you feel like you're going to die
    You're not going to die
    You're not going to die
    I know Baltimore can be a scary place and so can New York
    So can everywhere outside
    And you feel all alone
    But you're not alone
    This breaking is an opening
    This end is a beginning.

    Unfinished Hex
    At night nothing gets better
    Ready for you to come over me like failing rain
    And I wonder what holds your hands down at your sides
    And said an unfinished hex over me
    And set an unfinished hex over me
    At night
    Nothing is ending
    No one is the new one
    The older one gives back to the way that you love me
    The way that I love you
    The way I will
    And say an unfinished hex over me
    And said an unfinished hex over me.

    These two songs replace "Cloud Center" on the LP version:

    Teen
    I was them when I began
    So don't pretend like you don't know
    Listening
    Are you listening?
    With angry times and hands of teenage snow
    We were them
    When we began
    So call your friends and let them know
    Surfacing, always transmitting
    With angry times
    Hands marked teenage show
    I was dead when I began
    So every friend is someone I don't know
    Listening while we're transmitting broken code
    Teens ate snow.

    Gold Girls
    Show me all the things you love and I'll become them
    Show me all the things you love and I'll become them
    Show me all the things you love and I'll become them
    With your gold girls and your gone girls
    Show me all the things you love and I'll destroy them
    Show me all the things you love and I'll destroy them
    Show me all the things you love and I'll destroy them
    With your gold girls and your gone girls
    Can't win you over
    Can't let you down
    Any further now
    Show me all the things you love and I'll destroy them
    Put all of the things you love where I can't find them
    Take all of the things you love, take them and hide them
    With your gold girls and your gone girls.
