Track Name: Action Park
someone told me you were making sculptures of our friends
and on the plaques you wrote that ‘good things never end.’
i don’t know what you were trying to get me to see
if i got a haircut would you even recognize me?

i don’t want to live again
i don’t know if i can
the first time was enough
try two lives fucking up

i want to go back to action park
though i really don’t know that much.
baby, baby!
we could take some photographs
tell our kids those are our pasts.
baby, baby!

if there was one thing you could never stand about summertime,
it was sitting on your couch with nothing on your mind.
i only wish i could hate those moments half as much as you
but then again, i guess, i got nothing better to do.

i would stick with my dreams
except they fade away.
you can’t photograph
what ain’t meant to stay.
and i remember this kid,
who knew how to laugh—
what shouldn’t have stayed
was what he photographed.
Track Name: Boys
i didn’t know
i didn’t know
who put names to all the colors
that i’ve worn upon my skin?
and what becomes of all the others
when they don’t get worn again?
that’s how its supposed to be
that’s how its supposed to be

we didn’t know
we didn’t know
the swinging fists and the theatrics
the burning lighters built into cars
all were hallowed—sweet virginia
all were issued their owned stars
is that all it had to be?
is that all it had to be?

i know—
when you were a kid
when you were a kid
and you did what you did
i know—
when you were a kid
when you were a kid
and you did what you did
Track Name: New Jersey Girls
this is not a song to say
thank you for the life we made
cause i don't want to tell you that
even if i can't hide the fact
that i thought you were down to ride
with me through the rolling countryside
i guess we fell out of step
now i don't know what's next

people ask me how you are
and why you had to go so far
away from everyone you knew
and all the things you liked to do
i wish i could say but it'd be a lie
i don't know you and i don't know why
maybe if you come back home
we'll drive away, baby we'll just go

new jersey girls are all the same
except for you, you had a way
you had a way to make me laugh
and make me sit and let time pass
but i gotta move i gotta fly
i don't know you and i don't know why
baby if you come back home
we'll drive away, baby we'll just go
Track Name: (When Were You) Dreamin'
when were you dreamin
and when did you last agree?
most quiet evenings
pass right over me.
you’re just a wet leaf!
your eyes in my room,
a part of the room.
and one day this will blow over.
one day this will blow over.

sundays you’re leaving
a house that’s full of me.
i get to feeling,
if i hang above my grief,
my breath won’t slip from me.
your eyes in my room
a part of the room
and one day this will blow over.
one day this will blow over.

fuck em over
who cares?

when we were sleeping
we made such a mess in dreams.
you’re only boring
i’m only getting sick of me.
does that put your mind at ease?
your eyes in my room
apart from the room.
and one day this will be over.
one day this will be over.

fuck em over
who cares?
so come over
who cares?
fuck em over
who cares?
Track Name: Pox
‘the air above our heads is cursed,’
i thought i heard you say,
‘it enters through our breath and through our lungs
and through our veins.'

when you walk away,
you step on the cracks.
disappear for ten days
and safely come back.
i drive to our place,
i look for the signs:
the arrangement of things
that you leave behind.

‘there is something sacred in your eyes,’
i said that night.
did you think you were clever
when you drank the morning white?

when you walked away,
you slipped through the cracks.
who’s left to tell you to come back?
i drove to our place.
i looked for the signs:
the arrangement of things
that you left behind.

and we walk and talk for hours.
and we walk and talk for hours.
and we walk and talk for hours.
then say that’s all we really need.
that’s all we really have to offer.
