Track Name: Dog Walking Backwards
Some people got a lot of nerve
They are the wings on flightless birds
Cell phone filtered
They rearrange their lives like so much furniture

Some people say a lot of words
Rose-colored stained glass verbs
Life is a picture
But they live in a pixel

Some people got a lot of nerve
It's just a dog walking backwards
It's a broken banjo
It's not the end of the world
Track Name: Wishes and Bad Ideas
We’re sharing a glass, you’re a ghost from the past
You were trouble then, and you look like trouble now
As you finger the cross around your neck
You have charms that no one ever expected when you were in Sunday school

You were always in my plans
But you weren’t in my comfort zone
And I know it’s so dumb now
And I should leave you on your own

I don’t remember any of these stories
Ending well, ending well, ending well
I don’t remember any of these stories
Ending well, ending well

We’re sharing a glass, not alone in the past
We were trouble then, and we look like trouble now
Now I’m counting the steps to your mother’s house
From the bar up the street where we used to hang out, it’s dark now, but I know how

You were always in my plans
But god if you weren’t quite insane
And I know it’s so dumb now
But I could kiss you just the same
Track Name: Easy
They say good girls don’t swear
They just get even
They go so easy on the eyes
Until you're kicking and screaming

Go easy on my eyes
Go easy on me this time

I was in love again
I was in trouble
And I knew that you were trouble
When you walked in

You have more freckles than there are stars in the sky
And I have had enough drinks for two or three lifetimes

How long do we wait?
How long do we go?
Let it shake, let it ride, let it roll, let it go
How long do we wait?
How long do we go?
Let it shake, let it ride, let it roll, let it go
Track Name: Weeds
Runaway gardens behind little boxes
The more you throw, the more they grow

Killer, killer bees
Have got you crawling on your knees

The weeds will always win

Everyone loves you when they're down
And when you’re down they’re hiding underground

Hope and terror
It's a comedy of error
Track Name: Humming Sound
Me and you, we’re like the sun
Those who get too close are trapped in revolution
Me and you, we’re like the sun

Better than radio and television
It’s not contained by space and time
And even when we’re an open book
We don’t play out the storyline

When we’re together, we’re like the sky
Everything around us falls apart before our eyes
When we’re together, we’re like the sky

Hey, we can pick and choose our roles
They’re always worth their weight in gold
