Track Name: Backwards Compatible
i could marry you
or i could kill you
i could dig one hole
or we could dig two
i'm kinda scared of you
you might kill me
i'll have to chance that too
i could bury you
or I could thrill you
give your finger a ring
or your neck a noose
yeah we could dig two
Track Name: Falling Into Relief
we'll say we'll miss you
but the truth is
we'll continue on and forget
when it happens again
we'll be flabbergasted
drawn up from the sea in net
gasping for air, eyes bulging out, faces wet
flopping around on the deck
of a ship that keeps on
with a compass that's strong
and a captain stubbing out cigarettes.

it doesn't make any sense
it's hard to pick out the shapes
we're all sick to death
but there is no release
you gather it all in your arms
you hold on tight as it weighs you down
it's amazing how strong your grip is now
how much you can stand before it knocks you down
run into the river
and evaporate into clouds
and disappear when the sun comes out
Track Name: Traps And Locks
reprise of gray sunset
in windowless apartment
envelope stuffed with month's rent
remaining money spent on pup tent

i'm not depressed
i'm in the best shape of my life

van sits in driveway, rusting
guitar sits in flight case, busted
mind sits in head and gathers cobwebs
merch sits in box and gathers dust and

there's a spot on the bottom of the ocean
a seat saved on the bottom of the ocean
a special place locked down
on the bottom of long island sound
Track Name: Cold War 3
make your mouth a smile
make your arms an embrace
bury your face in your hands
bury your hands in the dirt
make believe that you're a credit to the human race

bury yourself in your work

i'm not the type to up and switch gears
in every weather, i wore the same sweater for six years
the townspeople are outside
with pitchforks and torches
the night is erupting
with distorted faces and voices

carry yourself off to bed
sleep forever, and forget this world.
Track Name: Roburrito's
eat a burrito - Roburrito's
you know you need a good burrito
can't beat the sweetest of burritos

other chains will sell burritos
but none of them will be as neato
