Track Name: HUNGRY GHOST
How much do your ashes weigh?
Not much compared to your old ways
Your black box was in the hallway
Put away
Chocolate cherries aren't even good.

Are you a dolphin
Annoying other dolphins?
Do you know how to swim?
Are you a dolphin?
Hungry Ghost next in line, for good.

Over by the water
Your mother, son, and daughter
And by the other water
Others like you
Hungry Ghosts underneath the Bay Bridge

Chocolate cherries aren't even good.
Track Name: I HOPE I WAKE UP SOON
Go down sun, go down, down, down,
Close your eyes at the drunken town.
Saturday is looming again,
But I put on my sleepy sunken crown.
I hope I wake up soon,
I hope I wake up soon,
I hope I wake up soon.

Come on moon, come up moon, soon,
Lie with me in my bed in my room.
Memory's spinning tales again,
She told me no such thing as doom.
I hope I wake up soon,
I hope I wake up soon,
I hope I wake up soon.

Oh, the soaking stories,
That ring themselves out,
Over our eyes at night,
When the lamp is out,
And we're alone,
And we're alone.

Come on sun, go down, down, doom.
I lie alone in my bed in my room.
I try and keep my heart at bay,
I hope I wake up soon.
Track Name: I'M NOT SCARED OF YOU
I'm afraid of bees,
I'm afraid of their stingers,
Yellow, black, and mean,
I'm scared of bees.
I'm afraid of the dark.
Can't see what's out there!
In a house or park,
I'm scared of the dark.
But I'm not scared of you!

I'm afraid of ghosts,
What are they looking for?
They need love the most,
But I'm scared of ghosts.
But I'm not scared of you!

Once in a while, I get frightened.
Once in a while, I get scared
Of death,
But I'm not scared of you.
I'm not scared, I'm not scared of you.
I'm not scared, I'm not scared of you!
I'm not scared, I'm not scared of you.
Track Name: STANDING BODIES
Standing bodies staring over
Standing bodies staring over
Themselves, themselves, themselves.
Themselves, themselves, themselves.

I took twenty steps through shadow bodies,
Their faces flashing blue and red,
I needed to be feeling paper,
I needed to be underneath a pen,
And free of senses, free of senses.
And free of senses, free of senses.

We chose not to hold each other
We chose not to be together
We chose not to weather.
Well, I don't want to be here anymore.

Standing bodies staring over
Standing bodies staring over
Themselves, themselves, themselves.
Track Name: SURROUNDING THINGS
Surround, surround, surround, surrounding things
Swallow me please
Surround, surround, surround, surrounding things
Shut me into you.
Is that what I want you to do?
Is that what I put you here to
Do?

Floor from the floor from the floor
From the floor to the ceiling
I'm another thing I'm collecting
Surround, surround, surround, surrounding things
I'm swallowing.

The pony and the rooster
Know each other
And they've been talking.
They're viewing record boxes and papers
And roses.
On a rainy day I'll throw them all together
In a pile on my bed
The party is invited and the party is the things in my head
In my head
Surrounding me

Surround, surround, surround, surrounding things
Swallow me please
Surround, surround, surround, surrounding things
Shut me into you.
Track Name: TO STAY STUCK
What do I understand
About the way you feel?
You're all sliced up
Well, what's the appeal?
When we hang out
We hold it in.
I know you've thought of marrying me
The way I've thought of marrying you
But it's too late
And it's not okay
To stay stuck in the middle
It's not okay
To stay in the middle

It won't be long
Next time I come to town
I'm not that great
You should know that by now
When we meet up
Keep that in mind

I know you've thought
We could work it all out
But there was nothing wrong
It's just a new time now
And it's not okay
To stay stuck in the middle
It's not okay
To stay in the middle

Can't you tell
We've been displaced
By the time I got here
It was already a waste
That's our case

I'm sorry to have made it all a waste
I'm sorry to have done it that way
I'm sorry to have made it all a waste
I'm sorry to have done it that way
I'm sorry to be stuck in the middle
I'm sorry to have done it that way
I'm sorry
Track Name: HURT YOU BACK
I've been cool
Way too cool, in fact
I watched you fade
Expecting you to come back
I should hurt you
I should hurt you back
I should hurt you
I should hurt you back

I've been good
Not like I should have been
It was yours
Your idea from the beginning
I should hurt you
I should hurt you back
I should hurt you
I should hurt you back

We were so happy
I told my mother
Now nothings funny
Why did you bother?
Why did you bother?

I should hurt you
I should hurt you back
I should hurt you
I should hurt you back

When I fell for you
I feel for amber oil on your neck
Fell for running through crowds together
Enjoying the hell
And planning our escape
We could have saved it there.

I should hurt you
I should hurt you back
I should hurt you
I should hurt you back.
Track Name: YOU TWO JUST SLEEP
I shouldn't sleep with you anymore
If I must, I'll sleep on the couch on the main floor
You two can cuddle
You two can be up there and sleep
You two just sleep
You two just sleep.

When I wake up and we've all fallen asleep in your bed
All of the feelings I've had for you rush back to my head
And I can't pretend
That your arms don't mean anything to me
And you two just sleep
You two just sleep
You two just sleep

For hours
I feel like I've lost all my powers
And I try to
Shut my brain off
And ignore the light
Like you two
Just sleep
You two just sleep
You two just sleep
You two just sleep

I shouldn't sleep with you anymore
I shouldn't sleep with you anymore
I shouldn't sleep with you
Track Name: I HOPE I WAKE UP SOON (reprise)
Go down sun, go down, down, down,
Close your eyes at the drunken town.
Saturday is looming again,
But I put on my sleepy sunken crown.
I hope I wake up soon,
I hope I wake up soon,
I hope I wake up soon.

Come on moon, come up moon, soon,
Lie with me in my bed in my room.
Memory's spinning tales again,
She told me no such thing as doom.
I hope I wake up soon,
I hope I wake up soon,
I hope I wake up soon.

Oh, the soaking stories,
That ring themselves out,
Over our eyes at night,
When the lamp is out,
And we're alone,
And we're alone.

Come on sun, go down, down, doom.
I lie alone in my bed in my room.
I try and keep my heart at bay,
I hope I wake up soon.
