Track Name: Baby Teeth
Before the world ends I want To love somebody
With all my strength don’t want To hurt nobody
There are guards in here There are guards in here Wo-ho
Young meat, young meat Young meat and baby teeth
Before the night ends be on My best behaviour
With all my strength be on My best behaviour
There are Gods in here There are Gods in here Wo-ho
The wood and the axe
The wolves in their packs
I need to belong
I need your hand upon my back
Young meat, young meat Young meat and baby teeth
We don’t need no fear We don’t need no fear Wo-ho
You and I are here You and I are here Wo-ho
Track Name: Would You Let Me Back In
Would you let me back in, would you? Would you let me back in, would you? ‘Cause I’ve been crying, crying, for you Yes, I’ve been crying, crying for you
So would you let me back in To bid farewell to the moon
I’ve been watching, watching the streets
Yes, I’ve been watching, watching the streets Their conversation is well fed
But their feet walk with a heavy, heavy tread Like they don’t really care
And they just woke from the dead
So would you let me back in So I can get back into bed
Oh treat me good
I’ve been talking, talking to them
Yes, I’ve been talking, talking to them
Sharing stories of hazard superglue
And matching key rings all colours red and blue And quietly forgetting the dustpan and the broom
So would you let me back in Before I find someone new
Track Name: A Boat
for days
she lost
a lot of sleep
in the best way possible
her creative mind would not rest simple
as
that
she
said
one thing
to the grass nearby that put it all to a quiet stop
isn’t it strange there’s no mystery here and the grass could surely hear her
so the shape of her little words could relatively come to find that the mystery itself was truly alive and present
all she had to do was remember its form not defined
Track Name: Cauliflower Jack
Oh look at us We’ve all grown up
We’ve punched our weight We’ve been blessed with luck
Who would have thought You would need us
Track Name: Match, Wrist, Bird
See this match in my hand
It’s new, unused, unfound
And I may strike it when I need to Burn the old boys down
Oh when I need to
See this watch on my wrist
Its hands will take care of this
And I may wind it with impatience Make you mine it insists
Oh with impatience
See this bird on my knee
It sleeps the day in the trees
She is startled with one movement Keep her distance from me
Oh with one movement
Track Name: With No Strength To Defend, Be A Ghost
I shouldn’t be fed but the rabbit was dead Abandoned by its sight
It flew off in the night
The clothes on the clothesline
The books in the bed
Let the blackness catch your breath Let your tight chest do the rest
The rabbit got proud, shook its fist at the sun I’m glad you left today
I was going to anyway
The sun it exploded,
his hearing was none
Let the silence catch your breath Let your tight chest do the rest
I’ll feast on him slowly, leave his heart till’ the end Brittle bones and stringy flesh
He died of bitterness
In his warm bed
With no strength to defend
Let the memories catch your breath Let your tight chest do the rest
I hope I changed you some I hope I changed you some I hope I changed you some
And once upon a time You saw me,
You heard me
Say babe I love you
Track Name: Warriors With Wild Hearts
I wish I was a lion
I could scare those creeping giants
Or one of those warriors with wild hearts Who show their love is bona fide
In the night I will think of you What have I become
Track Name: Tic Tac Language
Love is often like a galloping horse, I love that idea
Track Name: Jack, Where You At
Oh Jack, where you at in the winter
I don’t mean to worry you I just missed you Where you at, on the mountain top
Or down below, where the valley drops
Oh Jack, where you at in the winter
Oh Jack, put a ring on her finger
Surrender to the skies and you might beat her Stop the lies and butterflies
And put your hands on both her thighs
Oh Jack, marry her up and be together
Noel, and the summer that comes with it And it was very nice to have you in it But the kids are still to young and weak To brush their hair and to fix their teeth
Oh Jack, nice to know you it was a pleasure
Oh Jack, she’s lying cold in her day bed With her children ‘round her saying things that need to be said
Wagtails circling out the window
Telling her its okay to go
Jack she needs your word That it’s okay to be gone It’s okay to be dead
