Track Name: Everyone Move With Ease
Have you noticed they all are staring at you now?
Will you do something to keep them pleasantly caring?
I wonder how.

Have you noticed they all are staring at you now?
Will you do something to keep caring now?
How I wonder what.

Do they like big lights and loud sounds?
Or do they desire lavish robes and gold crowns?
How I wonder if they want to see me chasing what I'm after.
And I wonder if they want to see me catch that which I wish to capture.

Are they after me now?
Now that it's so clear.
Are they after me now?
Now that I don't fear anyone.
Are they after me now?
Now that the whole world can hear?

Are they after me now.
Track Name: Dig
Your face,
your eyes,
your shotgun shell.

Your fate,
shut everything out,
and so I fell.

Wanna jump your bones.
Track Name: Living Breathing Things
I'm so happy you're alive, baby.
I'm so happy you're alive, so we can share our time together.
I'm so happy you're alive, baby.
I'm so happy you're alive, so we can share our time together.

Oh I'd be sad if you're gone, but you're not, so I'm happy.
I'm so happy up and down up and down up and down up and down.
So happy I can see your chest moving up and down, down up and down.
I can see it up and down.

Happy just to see it, up and down.
Track Name: Good Friends
If you were to cut in,
remind me of a life
sold out for comfort,
small talk and cookies—
so get the knife.

Does a good friend
make it easy?
Or cry at the door—
please.

Surrounded,
waiting,
quiet,
anxious.
