Track Name: Wherever We Live
Wasn’t facing the direction of the hills like from the airport.
See the water and the skyline light peaks but I know better. Every night wherever we live.

This one mostly was confusing without a plot I could discern. The impressions of the landscape weren't matched by what I’d learned. Every night wherever we live.Only thing that’s right wherever we live.
Track Name: First in Line
I’m the only one in line but one begins to form behind me at the public information booth. I came down here to find the truth behind this so called credit I was given at the record store. But the patron at the counter wore a face of long indifference to all our precious time. And the woman positioned behind me kept inching closer to me as if she could pass through me. And her toes then did touch my heels and I fell backwards consciously. Reduced that box of new LPs. Confess it voluntarily. And I spoke.
Track Name: Corridors
Everybody wants to tell me about the bags under my eyes. And I’ll admit I’ve never felt this tired ever in my life. Thirty minutes stretching instruments and cables through the hall, so I could get as far away from my friends as was possible. Pedestrians are forced then to step around our mess and still they won’t make eye contact, at least they haven’t yet. Some spectators have gathered, we have run out of folding chairs, but we have ample space and standing room and spots out on the stairs.
Track Name: At a Hotel
My friend had a question and I came with him here. Presented situations, reached for the chandelier. Smashed glass instead to bits. Scratched herself on the way up. Adrenaline, noticed blood come down from where she’s stuck. She quit the job on the spot after we had cleaned up. She did say yes. Though shaken, the three of us took off

I’m better dressed when I’m asleep and brave enough to wander off. But I don’t say much I experience the lives I’m dreaming of. Feet on the floor and also swinging from the ceiling all alone and together in love. Punch what I remember in my phone or on paper when I get up.
Track Name: Estuary
Out by the sea we saw some decadent things
This real estate that we just couldn't believe
Someone had left it without any belongings
This giant place overlooking estuaries

Full of clothes and furniture
Someone’s life was here
Still intact severely burned
Now it sits for sale

And in the basement we found all sorts of treasures
We found some records and CD's and whatever
It didn't fit in with the rest of the mansion
Maybe some kid being brought up by grandparents
Track Name: Flash Flood
Like a ship in the night I’m going over the ruts through a river of mud around the signs they put up. Maybe the weather will change when we get closer to home and things will get back to normal and be dry as a bone. At this point I could swim and then walk the last mile and sleep safe in my bed until the water subsides.
Track Name: Family Business
Decide the bargain’s worth the risk and it’s best to buy the dealership. They took my dad out of the room and they shook him down and they shoved me too. This 67 spares your throat like it or not with a powder coat. Escorted down by blue sedans, never did get away from them.

But dad concealed a weapon and discharged it striking down intended targets. It’s not the guy who gave me life. Portrayed him by a look alike
Track Name: I Got Wasted
Spent my summers in an arctic land
Rode up high inside a beat up van
When I had more cash than I had plans
Driver tells me he’s a wanted man
But I paid no mind cause they had stopped for me
Recollect the last century
When he fell down ill we patched him up
And ditched the van for a better truck
I got wasted
October came and we went back down
To Baja Sur and a sleepy town
And we spent some time on tidal rocks
Remembered then that I’d had a job
And it turns out they had been worried sick
Called the cops after I had missed about 16 weeks without a call
My mind was shot from the alcohol
I got wasted
Track Name: Margins
Beside my heart, considered whole. The task I’m given has made me old. I show up late, my clothes are stained, and no one’s bothered, but I’m still ashamed.
You got to me
When James got married I was set to sing, but I overslept and I made a scene. At 10 pm I’d had some drinks. I was forgiven, at least I think. With some assistance I made the rounds. And all was well and I made my sounds. And so my brother remained my friend. And they both seemed happy and that’s the end.
Track Name: Nails
My dream was epic. It went on and on. On a river on the border of a foreign nation. There were mountains even bigger than the ones at home and a house that looked on my country and mine alone

I never will go back. Never will go back.
I don’t miss the life that I once had. I miss my sister mom and dad. I never will go back. Never will go back.

What was dreamed around the corner was in fact across the Earth. And on the way was gripped an iron rail that kept us where we were along the snaking course of waterways as quiet as we could. And found the locals spoke our language and recorded us in books.

I never will go back. Never will go back.
At times resembled different friends then turned into ourselves again.
We never will go back. Never will go back.
