Track Name: Rich Spring
Tell me who planted for such a rich spring
everywhere I turn my senses they scream
golly I'm damn pleased with this beauty around 
dare I betray it by making this sound

oopsy there, I did it again
simply acknowledging the simplest of things
perhaps I should hide
such sentiments inside
or at least leave a little to find

isn’t that the tension, we all walk
Such banal figures never should stop
once that lens, focuses right
I’m just another poser on a pre-summer night

Tell me who made pleasure the crime
Trained us to hide it all the time
As if joy were a zero sum game
You might banish by speaking its name

don’t be scared cause I’m not here
Just tell me what you want to see
self reflexive pirouettes
I haven't learned that lesson yet

Tell me who planted this fresh crop of glee
Everywhere I turn there's so much to see
Golly I'm damn pleased how every bud bloomed
Dare I betray it before I'm consumed

I just can't ignore such a rich spring
The light and colors can't help but Scream
I'll can't deny the beauty around
Forgive this sucker making his sound
But I can't stay quiet about what I've found
Track Name: Fare Thee Well
Goodness gracious, mercy me
this isn’t how it’s supposed to be
the sun goes up and the sun comes down
makes no difference when you’re not around

Should we run away, tell me, should we try?
It isn’t easy when you say goodbye
say the word, name the place and time
test me, find out if I have a spine

take time to tell
fare thee well

Move on over, rest your head on me
There's a sweetness beyond those baser needs
the words stick to the hope in me
Blot my sun so effortlessly

I know you love me, I feel it here
Deep inside I never knew was there
Maybe me you love me now like I’ll love you when
This letter is long forgotten

It's natural as the trees
Strange as the birds and bees
And still you won't let it be

I had to tell you, I had to try
I had to give you the reasons why
Am I in your heart? am I in your mind?
The pretty girl with the constellation in her eye

I'll make my way, find a different road
Listen to what my heart is told
Settle down where the streets don’t know you
and longing lanes don’t want to

It's more than I can take
The choices that you make
Leave me to forever winter want

And everything you ever said
All my failings, all my mistakes
every word is true
Track Name: Taking It
You’d sell the farm for some chickenshit attraction
Just what’s the harm in one prairie home distraction
That’s not a diss but an admission of bliss
every time we rock the hammock
I close my eyes and
I’m already there
It’s stuck in my head
It’s all in your head
Pay this no mind -- don’t do it
Don’t take it to heart

If you won’t let me drive then why let your heart?
That reckless autopilot - you’ll get no insurance.
She smiles please as she slips the keys from your a-bit-too-willing pocket
The streets careen and
she’s already there
Stuck in your head
It’s all in your head
Pay this no mind - don’t do it
Don’t take it to heart

Mama, mama, don’t you cry, it’s not such a bummer
Sure as my eyes are blue, and if we play it cool, I’ll see you in the summer (Sir)
If you don’t want no room I’ll give it to you black
She can’t come back, ‘cause
She’s already there
Stuck in your head
It’s all in your head
Pay this no mind - don’t do it
Don’t take it to heart

These irresistible flights
Such seductive delights
Track Name: Carnival
Never thought a Ferris wheel could work, at this range
Something salting the air has me, feeling so strange
Like a short breath  -  I'll never catch
Even woods hole  -  Stinks like my death
Everyone stares  -  At the Barnstable fair
Baby it's gone
Baby it's...

did your father ever re-ally want, anything he had
Or was he just swimming blind when you started calling him dad
who's still around  -  to call me out
when his mistake  -  Turns right about
Everyone watch  -  The carousel now
You're pulling apart
You're pulling...

Smile big let everyone know, that I still belong (yelling it)
Just because there’s a knife in me don’t mean that anything’s wrong
Back to the beach  -  Back to my bed
Driving around  -  After I’m dead
Brahmin pockets  -  All drop away
Swimsuit stained in blood
Swimsuit stained in...

Some people just disappear
Vanish in the night
Track Name: Superhero
When I was small I thought the world was so big
That somewhere Superman's in flight
An evil genius fights a super spy
At his hidden fortress site
It seemed so clear that by next year
We'd be breathing Martian air
Everything would happen everywhere

Years went by and the world shrank down
Now it's just as big as my life
It holds a job and weekends
It's dark and full of strife
Sometimes I check and crane my neck
But all I see is sky
Never superheroes flying by

I know that you're still out there
In a world that's wild and strange
You're swimming in the infinite
And everything can change
When you're in your cape and cowl it's very clear to see
A superhero's saving our city

Why should you be satisfied
A man walked on the moon?
If you had your way we'd all be
Headed back there soon
A secret base: the kind of place
Where you could play outside
A rocket ship to be your awesome ride

I know that you're still out there
In a world that's wild and strange
You're swimming in the infinite
And everything can change
Best of all I gaze into your eyes and there I see
A superhero staring back at me

It's too late for me now
My choices have been made
And one of them turned out a righteous trade
I only hope that one day
It will come to you
That some day you're a superhero too

I know that you're still out there
In a world that's wild and strange
You're swimming in the infinite
And everything can change
Best of all I gaze into your eyes and there I see
A superhero staring back at me
