if i could make friends with the television maybe i won’t feel so alone like i do, like you do tune out, it’s just tradition baby, be american, boy it’s good for you it’s what we do think i need a different drug the ones i take just ain’t enough maybe something new is waiting for me on the tube so maybe i should look again if i could make friends with the television maybe i won’t feel so alone like i do, like you do they could make jokes i’d laugh along have a couple beers maybe write a song to the story, but it ain’t my story think i need a different drug i’ve tried sex and i’ve tried love maybe something new is waiting for me on the tube so maybe i should look again

well i’m sorry your wheels keep turning round and round sometimes silence is an awful sound and then you let go there’s some feelings that you can’t afford to show and then you move on places that you know we don’t belong i’m your fantasy maker i make your monsters go away i’m your fantasy maker i’m sorry for what i could not give to you you know i understand and then you let go there’s some feelings that you can’t afford to show and then you move on places that you know we don’t belong while i’m your fantasy maker i make your monsters go away i’m your fantasy maker

Kung Fu 02:27
wake up, move softly ‘cross the floor i can’t hang around here no more get no calls that i cannot ignore i’m on my own frequency but i never feel that far from you cuz you stayed up with me and watched kung fu if you miss me, know that i miss you too i just got some shit to do mr. richardson, i heard the news scratch-off, jackpot, what’s to lose? with whatever you decide to do just remember karma follows through but i never feel that far from you you stayed up with me and watched kung fu if you miss me, know that i miss you too i just got some shit to do

Listen 02:16
all your life, you’ve been hiding here in plain sight while the ones you trust just tell you to be fine but we don’t listen… when fear subsides, northern flicker flying right by the infinity of planetary plights and we don’t listen no, we don’t listen
5.
colors around me as i am wrapped in fireworks i can slide between the bits of universe only gravity could ever let me touch the earth you await the day when your own wings unfurl goblins underneath have grown obsessed with their own names toiling endlessly, searching for golden flames is madness in me? is madness of the world? is madness the diver, or is it the pearl? surely there is more do you see the way she loves you? will you ever walk away if something undoes you? you see the way she loves you could you ever walk away for something above you? colors around me have shown a fire where to rise swingin’ ‘round the star for yet another prize if you will your love if you give your love if you send your love then only your hope remains do you see the way she loves you? will you ever walk away if something undoes you? you see the way she loves you could you ever walk away for something above you?
6.
Island World 03:05
images of an island world in my periscope i hope to invoke a spirit from another life who’s been here before and walked on the shore they only love you when you’re leaving they only love you when you’re gone remnant from an ancient try we’ve been here before we chose the wrong door golden as the afterlife but silent as shame no one left to blame they only love you when you’re leaving they only love you when you’re gone they only love you when you’re leaving they only hear you when you’re wrong
7.
you are not alone we were made for others in the shade of mother in a southern summer you and i alone couldn’t stand the seasons it’s so easy leavin’ where do we land? come back to me guess i wonder was i ever your person? guess i wonder was i ever your one and only? you are not alone we were made for others in the shade of mother in a southern summer you and i alone were held for ransom in new orleans dancin’ by the sea come back to me guess i wonder was i ever your person? guess i wonder was i ever your one and only?
