Track Name: Up and Shout
Warm cloud breaks above my head
I see it breaking see it breaking
I get a taste upon my lips
A silence in my silence in my throat
I'm never ever gonna stop until I
See this thing through see it through
I got silhouettes of mountains in my view
But I can't get close to you
I can't get close to you

Look up and shout
You're here and then you're out of reach
I need to speak to you
There's only precious time
And so much more to give than guilt for dreaming

Instead of clinking glasses
We're like distant planets
Moving in and out of orbit
Orbiting the same room
And can't get close to you
I can't get close to you

Look up and shout
You're here and then you're out of reach
So much more to give
More to give than guilt for dreaming

I'm looking for a love
Or something subcutaneous
Wrap around me like a blanket
Keep me warm
Track Name: Sparrow Loose
There is a sparrow loose in this saloon
But it's only passing through
Only passing through

This is the way in which the journey breaks
From winter back into the winter

Give me the strength to limp beside you
Headed for the fall
Give me the courage to resign you
Headed for the fall

There is a beached whale on the avenue
It'll take its last breath soon

This is the way in which the spirit breaks
Orphaned by a cruel mistake

Give me the strength to limp beside you
Headed for the fall
Give me the courage to resign you
Headed for the fall

Ladies and gents, we'll be arriving soon
One more drink and then we're through
And we will be there soon
Track Name: Quiet in My Tongue
If you shout through a grating on the sidewalk
Does your voice reverberate?
If you cast a stone into the ocean
Does it make a sound?

I will seek asylum in your silence
'Cause it's quiet in my tongue
And I need to yawn

Oh my little lima bean
Can you remind me how to listen?
Waves of yellow and waves of green
Down in the grass just sitting and sitting
As we creep up to a fast sunset

I will seek asylum in your silence
'Cause it's quiet in my tongue
And I need to yawn
Track Name: Twilight Holly
I'm waking up to find
My world is cut off
Cut off at the windowpane
The sun has lost its shine
It's choking in a dead smoke
It's just a day in ordinary time

'Cause you've got a lover you can fit in your hip pocket
Salivation at your fingertips now
Remember always keep your head down
Don't you lose your grip, now

Put on your mask, get out the door
And wait here for the bus
Don't be so serious
Try not to think too much
Just one breath in and one breath out

'Cause you've got a lover you can fit in your hip pocket
Salivation at your fingertips now
Remember always keep your head down
Don't you lose your grip, now

Well one and one and one is three
Won't be your number three guy
Don't want to text you every night to sleep
Intercourse only in your mind

Now the sun has lost its shine
