1.
Sewed into the skirt in a room full of nothing Infinity's singing out the side of her mouth Through my walls, up the halls and out through my window While my mouth makes a shape around the music below Singin', "ohhh" They found me cold but alive in this dream I'm collecting the cashmere I stole from the seam In my name to fold into the light of my hands While my eyes, they dance with a glass full of sand Singin', "ohhh" Now, I lay all the wires across the spine of my tongue I shake a cup full of stones down into my lungs And I breathe in the sound of the name of this place Singin', "ohhh"

64 Teeth 04:55
Won't you meet me where these two streets meet The corner of Ellipses and Defeat Where I'll wrap my ribs around your spine And sigh to you, "It was always you" We can find out how the moon grows now As our faces greet each other on repeat To whisper through sixty four teeth And you'll say to me, "it was always me" When the sun comes up and your face falls out And your skin grows into the morning, dear I can hear you dancing outside my window Where you're poised and ready to take my hand again When you sleep, I'll be the wind on your face The warmth you feel around your waist When you think my name, you can breathe me in And throw your hands around my neck

Liars 04:49
You take the big one And I'll take his brother Let's get this over with 'Cause I'm late for work Do you remember when we were young? The swing-sets, the castles, the days in the sun? I sold all my baseball cards to buy me these clothes That's how it goes, that's how it goes, that's how it goes I keep on thinkin' It's time to move on Move out to that city, so huge Meet me some people You see, these old hills, they keep on calling The clouds 'round here talk and, man, I've been listening I sold all these clothes to buy me this land Now, I'm sort of happy, most of the time I've been ridin' lots of trains The same ones as you How come you get to talk to everybody? (I'm just looking out my window) Man, I ain't you And you keep on pointing out my halo With your big pointy fingers and your six-fingered hands I sold all this land to buy me some dreams Just like in those movies they played when we were kids And now we're just liars...
4.
And underneath one frozen tree I took two steps and found three of you With four hands stretched to five of me We stumbled into six amused Not seven now, but eight long days Thrown into nine and bore from ten strings That found the tune of twelve Swing back your head to find eleven Where thirteen left you still and sound Fourteen exhaled the warmth to find The fifteen tics on tocs that tame The sixteen clocks whose hands have paved The seventeen streets I've walked Just to love you
5.
Down in the dust, holding the dew together I found you waiting, watching, whatever You're long and bored, like a passing storm Holding hands with someone I'd met before And you said you'd come to make it better You stand in front of a green screen And you're blooming like you really care But I don't believe you now Now Brandi sings Virginia May But she wants to hear that Moon Song While Gregory's stomping out a waltz now While she gets ready for the outro I've got my fingers on your lips tonight That breeze brought down your blackened brow And vandalized your mother's house But I don't believe you
