Track Name: Be Somewhere
Pictures of the night time taken from my window
Pictures of the night time line an empty hall
Maybe someone’s searching them for faces
Maybe no one looks at them at all

Custodian arrives from his lunch with a cup of tea
Thirty-five keys, he’s labelled them with great care
All the teachers wait for the bell to ring
With the same anticipation as little kids
The principal is back from her last meeting out of town

She
Doesn’t look pleased
There’s something she’d like to know

Do you wanna be somewhere dealing lines
Do you wanna be somewhere going blind
Do you wanna be somewhere in the pines
Do you wanna be somewhere wasting time

A secretary’s job is an exercise in patience
A secretary’s job is a complicated dance
She rarely goes down the hall or pictures herself alone
She hums her favourite song and quiets a ringing phone

Stern but also fair
The ship that she runs is tight

Do you wanna be somewhere dealing lines
Do you wanna be somewhere going blind
Do you wanna be somewhere in the pines
Do you wanna be somewhere wasting time

Taken down and put in storage
Taken down to be replaced
Taken down for summertime
repainting

Do you wanna be somewhere dealing lines
Do you wanna be somewhere going blind
Do you wanna be somewhere in the pines
Do you wanna be somewhere wasting time
Track Name: Everything at Once
I can’t make up my mind
I can’t make up my mind
But common sense never reached
Out to anyone quietly
There are sentences i wanna hear
I can’t make out what is real
What is real

I can’t believe your eyes
I can’t believe your eyes
You’re bearing down on a name
Saying they all sound so contained
With a pencil in between your teeth
You were squinting at it, pondering

Oh my God, I can’t talk about it
Oh my God, I can’t talk about it
Oh my God, I can’t talk about it
Oh my, I can’t say that I want
More than this,
I want everything at once

I can’t believe my mind
I can’t believe my mind
You walk, talk, see and hear
And some day disappear
With a pistol trained below the knee
And they tell you not to grit your teeth
I grit my teeth

But i’ll stop
When you stop

Oh my God, I can’t talk about it
Oh my God, I can’t talk about it
Oh my God, I can’t talk about it
Oh my, I can’t say that I want
More than this,
I want everything at once

But I want
More than this,
I want everything at once
Track Name: Prestone
C’est une fuite de prestone
Qui l’aura corrompu
Les limites d’un imaginaire
Plus ou moins résolu

C’est une fuite de prestone
Peut-être que t’as déjà vu
Goutte à goutte sur l’asphalte
Dégoûte, dégoûte

Le presto qui explose
Le cap a pucké l’plafond
Y’en a partout sur les murs
La vie est fucking violente

Y’est sorti de l’autobus
A ouvert le moteur
Les lumières sur le dashboard
Annonçaient les gicleurs

Le presto qui explose
T’as raté ta confiture
Mettons que ça l’a mal tourné
Y’en a partout sur les murs

Attention ! tu n’es pas seul
Il explose
Attention ! tu n’es pas seul
Il explose

Tu sais très bien ce qui s’passe
Sa tête endimanchée
D’un peu trop de cigarettes
Y’est su’l’ bord de tout pèter
Embarré en bossu
D’avoir trop souvent baissé les yeux
Oh you feel it

Le presto qui explose
Y’avait pas besoin d’ça
Y’en a partout sur les murs
Y’a déjà assez d’violence

Le presto qui explose
Le cap a pucké l’plafond
Y’en a partout sur les murs
Track Name: L'aube
Through my window
Past these words you poured onto the counter
Ripples shimmer with the light of a thousand dawns
Tonight, when the currents are shadows
And the and the path is dark
Will you walk beside me to the water’s edge
And dive?

Out of doors
In a hurried world
Forgotten keys
Collecting light

If I keep walking won’t I circle back again
If I can talk myself around the point you make

Shed my skin
One more time
Sounds like spring
Like bad advice

When the creases and the tired eyes begin to show
Rung by rung, the fire ladder, out the back window

With the sun on your shoulders
Not a breath to hold you back
Getting small in the distance
I missed you, I missed you

As we trade in day for night
I toss and turn around
In the moonlit sky, in a colder light
With a quickened heart
Beating like a drum
You’re running now
You’re calling out
“I was so scared
I was so scared”

I really love the morning light
But I won’t make another song about it
Will come with me tonight
Come on over
Come on over
