Track Name: Run Down the Day
not for a minute not for a single moment no
we don't hang on we don't belong to what became of once ago
we look ahead we are ahead we know what's going to come up ahead

if there's time between time I know it will pass
before too long I'll be up and gone and getting on with the everlast
we've got it all, and this place is ours I know it is

running
until the day is done
got swallowed by the sun
don't hold on
it's alright to let it slide
we will never die

oh and we did wait to come of age to come into this
we're doing more than what came before more than what we already did
but i never worry, we never age, we just start up again

so at the end a repetend let's keep it simple and get on with
some things are greater and some lesser that's just it
the circuit; we run it down we're runners

we are without concern
the charge to return
it will come

expecting of a taste
on the next day
it will come
Track Name: Coyote Song
across the empty desert plains
the prairie wolf is crowned a lonesome king

and the lazy days roll off your tongue
you sleep so short
but you lie so lie so long
singing your coyote song

oh, secrets bared! you grin so wide
i’m not gonna let you come inside

cunning clever animal
i can tell you’ve come to do me wrong
singing your coyote song

you creep for company
oh! your majesty
you fool around with everyone
you fool around oh how you fool me

you creep for company
oh! your majesty
you get a hold of everyone
you get a hold oh how you hold me

you creep for company
oh! your majesty
you fool around with everyone
you fool!

i’m not afraid of what you got
i’m not afraid of what you got undone
singing your coyote song
Track Name: Ethel
ethel can you hold
we're almost through another year
then we will ring around
and sit with you for seven days

just a little more
the taste will be bitter 'til we reach our mark
we will reach for gold
we always do what we've been told

when you call me to your end
i will put my things beside your bed
and where the others will not bend
i would be the one to stand instead

ethel don't get down
we're almost through another year
we will all be fine
we come together when we're called

the men to bear your weight
are lining up from tall to short
and the tree left in your name
with a pot of soil from each of us
Track Name: Hey Exponent
hey exponent
what are you multiplying
today?
to increase the weight
upon our hearts
but we're all left in the dark

hey exponent
what are you calculating
today?
to occupy some future space
we aren't as light we aren't as quick

oh, you amplify
to be recognized
with intensity and time
i'm retired, i'm retired, i'm tired.

hey exponent
what are you accelerating
today?
to increase the age
of our hearts
to put us down to sleep
Track Name: Verb Noun
i am compelled to make
i am compelled to make good

and this part of that whole
i can see where it goes
but not why it is
just verb noun you'll agree
but i don't want to do just anything

is it any less than
if i make it with force
than if i was forced to make it
just verb noun you'll agree
but i don't want to do just anything

i am charged to make
i am charged to make good

i don't want to leave
these things in a heap
and to curb and to bend
while others pretend
and i sleep instead
in my head
Track Name: Nomenclature
in the beginning
i came in to being
as a single expression
pushed out from her organs

i don't know what i shall be called
how will i ever find my home?

after a while
we gathered the others
and formed a new language
pushed out from our organs

i want to know what i shall be called
i need a name to have for my own

our appetite for ambition
into delightful divisions
fractions of fractions of fractions
and each has their places

i got words in my body
i got words in my body
terms to partition everything
nomenclature
Track Name: Flooded
the sharpest alarm
i rise with the sun
and rays like a blade
i'm awake

and all are about
with leashes and leads
and purposeful strides
the bright light putting tears in my eyes

i'm up
too much to take in
flooded
but i won't sink

we drift into dance
i pass you by chance
it's almost too much
my long-lost half i'm quite overcome

i mapped out our lives
in thin little lines
mine goes on for days
stay with me here in this place
Track Name: Tired Enough to Dive
with every advance of the second hand
i'm dying, i'm dying i'm wasting away

i stay at home because i don't work
i'm dying, i'm dying i'm going to waste

i can't build me up
i can't build me up to bridge the growing gap
i can't run away
i'm not tired enough to dive
and i won't try
i'm glad to be alive

and each time i reach for a second chance
i'm slipping, i'm slipping i'm wasting away

if i don't move and i keep still
i'm dying, i'm dying i'm going to waste
Track Name: I Am the Conductor
into the pass
at the speed of sound
i will carry the light
i will consign

what will we pass
end to end to end
like when we hold hands
when we hold hands

medium
relay
medium

i was a vessel
on the troubled sea
and i did carry thee
i did transfer thee

like a song
that rides on the cardinal winds
like when we hold hands
when we hold hands

i am the conductor
i am the conductor
i am the conductor
i am the conductor
Track Name: Flintlock Fire
all the houses in the capital
lay black as coal against the sky
the people from our lonesome street
have been gone for quite some time

though the sun has gone down for the night
the air is glowing like a stove
we've all got nothing else to do
we'll build a fire to keep us warm

oh,
burn, burn
burn away this empty town

burn burn burn
burn us to the ground

grab the flintlock from the cellar box
get the boys to find some wood
there's logs a plenty up the boulevard
where the residences stood

though the sun has gone down for the night
the air is glowing like a stove
we've all got nothing else to do
we'll build a fire to keep us warm
