Track Name: Heal Me
All of us got eyes on you
An underwhelming vote for you
Hogs our history

These bloody knuckled boys of mine
Punched some clocks, twisted my spine
Heal me, healing times, I'm saved.

I was part folk music myth
I never pin my sore eyes with
Thumbtack history

Paleolithic thin skin
I used to hate the chords I sang in
I believe in me, finally, I'm saved.
Track Name: Aurora Borealis
Outside hillsides, lights in the sky
over suburbs just like mine

Upper-crusted family ties
still no one knows half of why

somebody stop our future crime
all of our cops have alibis

I’ve been desperate, I’ve been a mess
thoughts like his I must confess

I watched him sit sad by the door
Where’ve I seen that look before?

somebody stop our future crime
none of our doctors have the time

come watch yourself on trial country
we have no right to be triumphant
and in our calm canary hideouts
Feel it all
Track Name: Sun Trials
Rain soggy walls
the weather worries me
hard to believe
the sun’s away on witch trials

said with a punched out thug smile:
“grow while your country’s growing young”
So many jaws on a thug’s smile
Grow till your country can’t hold you

Slush on your boots
the leather worries you
hard to break bills
I’m never good with change

Said with a punched out thug smile:
“Change while your country’s changing tongues”
So many seasons - a thug’s smile
snow while our love’s still young

don’t take me for granted
I don’t know when winter’s coming
don’t take me for granted
like I took you for granted
Track Name: Expatriates
I’m under the impression
somebody move me
I’m under the impression
somebody move me

I’m under the attention
somebody need me
I’m under the attention
Somebody need me

Make haste
someone’s after my affection
watch out
we left home to be left out

I’m under your impression
someone save me
next expatriation
