Track Name: So Many Arms To Hold Me
everything that beverly does she does it in the summer
she listens to her records in the queue
everything she does is leathery doves
and seeing it through
she will see it through for you
everything that beverly does she does it in the rain
and she don't listen to nobody like you
everything she does is leathery doves
and i love you's

got so many arms to hold me
could it really be
could it be love

everything that everybody knows has always been true
except for that little bit about you
but beverly does as beverly says
and i think that's cool
she will make a fool of you and you
Track Name: Keep U Mine
heart like a drum full of sapphires of shadowy blue
it grins like an ace in the hole as it beats for you
i hear your big red boots as you move
as you crash up the stairs
you move like a devil, a conjurer, a billionaire

i've got to keep u mine

open my big black door and step into the light
your fiery frame like a twisted star in the night
Track Name: Everything That's Happened
oh you dog, you can bray, you can howl
the misty moon's coming up
siren songs are fleeting
teeth grow dull
answers ask the questions you already know
i think you already know, man
when the lie takes form
a fine rift in your mind now, honey
you'll be reborn

everything that's happened already happened to ya

careful creeping around eyes so hollow
they want you to beg
they want you to swallow
siren songs of beauty, keeping time
so fine and tasting of sweet lime
i think you already know, man
when the lie takes form
you can swim in the tides now, honey
you'll be reborn
Track Name: A Man In Water
my name is water and i can't keep to myself
i just can't keep to myself not anymore
and my faith is watery so slipping down a shelf
it is based upon a cloud as it is pure
a man about the empire is busy stepping out
he is mystified
he is dreaming of the sea
curious and wonder-faced at what has come about
he is drenched
he has just met me

i see you
and i am everybody
i know you
as a blizzard knows the breeze

in the face of brotherhood i spit and kiss alike
finding face in places i have always been
and anyway i know i should steal everything i like
but your heart is the worst i've ever seen

i see you
and i am everybody
i know you
as a river knows the stream

my name is nothing and i can't keep to myself
i just can't keep to myself
i'm at the door
my faith is watery so slipping down a shelf
it is based upon a cloud as it is pure
Track Name: Truly Yours
they call her mr. midnight.
i'm looking for her blue eyes.
behold something so lovely.
to love that thing is easy,
but to hold it is a trick.

sometimes i feel i got nothing left,
i drink in the street and break my glass.
to hold her hand, i'd walk on it.
to hold her hand,
i'd walk a mile of broken glass.

to hold her hand..
hold.

because she rocks my soul.
she set my soul on fire.
my world's ready to burn,
it's like a funeral pyre.

she see's through me.
it's a blessed thing.
she reads my mind,
and makes me sing.

i saw her float
in the sweet moonshine.
oh so fine.
so fine.

and bells will ring
somewhere in your mind.
to be truly yours,
this is truly yours...

god threw away
the worst designs.
he gathered up time
and made you fine.

god threw away
the worst designs.
he took his time
and made you fine.

fine.
Track Name: Caroline
caroline, the world was not made for you
now all of the girls and the boys they feel like saving you
caroline, your tears are the saddest thing
now when will we get to see you smile?

you want to get away
i don't blame you now
you said you're getting out
but i'll see you tomorrow, anyway

caroline, now where do you think you'll go
you wait around for someone to tell you, you'll never know
caroline, you'll die of a broken heart
now when will we get to see you smile?
Track Name: Nothing
when i was an angry man
i swam in angry seas
when i was in anger she'd still follow me
but now i'm in the kitchen
and i'm smiling at the street
hoping some of that angry dust will swallow me

that begging life appeals to me
them quarters on the trees
digging from the bathroom sink will always be...
diming at the drugstore the day of halloween
grinding on the beach wood floor
you know it just brings me down

i wanna tell ya

nothing in this world can stop me from thinking about ya

when i was an angry man
i swam in angry sea
Track Name: Sailor
i'll rent myself a car
and smash it into a wall.
cuz baby, i don't care.
i don't care at all.

i know i wanna be a sailor,
but the sea makes me so sick,
so i'll sit drunk in a ditch
and feel like it.

well it's funny how they say it's funny how
when it wasn't really funny at all.
the cap of your pen's all gnarled.
and your face against the wall.

the rain's comin' down now.
and my daddy said it might stay long,
cuz when the sky's all red at dawn,
they say sailor take warn.

well it's funny how they say it's funny how,
when it wasn't really funny at all.
the cap of your pen's all gnarled.
and your face against the wall.

dogs barkin' stranger,
so it opens my weepin' eyes.
i see the ships take sail
to that red sunrise.

well they say the sun doesn't go up.
it's just the system breakin' down.
so i put myself in the water,
and breath it down.

well i'm just trying to get home.
some way.
Track Name: Place
when i awoke i found a different place
and when i walked the mirror i saw a different face

when were you gonna tell me
when were you gonna let me know?

when i awoke i found myself in a different place
and when i awoke i fell in two

when i saw your eyes i found my home again
and when the feeling came i thought i had found my friend

when did you decide you're gonna tell me
when did you decide that i was wrong?
Track Name: Olivia Oh Yeah
all the stars in my silver hands you can have 'em
you can have anything you want
all the wind in my big white sails is like magic
i just can't stand to see you go

you stick around a while
you might see

oh olivia
oh yeah

i'll meet you way up there tonight if you can handle it
i'm just trying to get you high
all that dirt in my red right hand now
you can ask for it
i just can't stand to see you go
Track Name: Icicles
so you wanna get your car and drive
watching all the icicles fly
you do all you can to get us very far away

you and i could sit here getting high
might be a great idea

get your car and drive
watching all the icicles fly by
you do all you can to get us oh so far away
Track Name: Love Dies Young
you waited around forever
just to love him for a day
you spent your time together
but he pushed your love away
he through your love away

you think him a fool for leaving
he said he couldn't stay
you will find another lover
keep keep your love safe
to keep your precious love safe

but you don't understand
he's not your man anymore

love dies young, as it goes
when love dies young, it dies cold
love dies young, yes it does
love dies
Track Name: Dead Yet
you don't come around here anymore
your memory is starting to leave me
when you walk out that door
your feet hit a watery shore

you don't come around here anymore
your memory is starting to leave me
when you walk out that door
you're never gonna come here no more

but i ain't dead yet
girl, i'm just tired
of you leaving
