Track Name: Yer Loss
I'm deaf in one ear
It's been a horrible year
She doesn't love me
S-S-She doesn't love me

I'm blind in one eye
But kind as July
Not that she could
N-N-Not that she could

Tell me two times
And show me both sides
You're getting through to me

Tear my insides
Blow my heart wide
You're getting through to me

I've been bad before
But better much more
Skin is so ugly
S-S-Skin is so ugly

I'm thin as a kite
But grounded all night
Not that she would
N-N-Not that she would
Track Name: Frit
I'm the weather of a secret love
Of feelings that are imminent

Hiding shame up in the stratus cloud
Leak them out just a little drip

If I let you down, wet the ground
Would you be livid?

Crying down from the skies above
I want to clear, but I am frit of you

I know what the future brings
It's never anything that I long for

I look down from the sky
Raindrops they splash your eyes
And it makes you blind
But you're staying out

Out here in the rain
It's pouring again

It's all that you ever really want
A home out in the wilderness

Two heartbeats in a cot
A warm bed for your little kin

Just like where we grew up
To have our children grow up

But how, when I am a cloud?
I want to clear, but I am frit of you
Track Name: Nil
Nil.
Oblivion.
Love.
When you love nothing, you get nothing.
You have to help me get out of here... (indecipherable)
When you've got nothing, you've got love.
Love.
Track Name: Babes In The Wood
Three girls went off to the wood, on one fateful saturday, not too long ago,
Where near by the water lay a big mother spider and what she say:
"I've lived a thousand years, I've lived a thousand years, growing hungry growing hungry growing hungry"
They ran with the fright of babes in the wood, to live again, to live again, hey oh!

Two boys went off too the wood, on one stormy tuesday night, not too long ago,
Where trapped in some underbrush, they find baby squirrel who's broken a leg.
They tried to rescue her, but fell right into the trap of a spider who's hungry hungry.
They ran with the fright of babes in the wood, to live again, to live again, hey oh!

One girl went off to the wood, on one sunny afternoon, not too long ago,
Mother's warning her, "You be careful now, come home soon, okay?" "I'm just going out!"
As she wandered through the wood, she fell, tumbled down with a knock on her head.
Waking to find herself cobwebbed and at the mouth of a mother spider,
She kicked, and she tried to fight the sticky fibres, screaming, thrashing,
She ran with the fright of a babe in the wood, to live again, to live again, hey oh!
Live again, to live again, hey oh!
Live again, to live again.
Track Name: I'm So Sorry
Hey,
Like you said to me the other day
We can take a tab and maybe try to play
But I'm never going to put you on the book
'Cause your girlfriend's been giving me the look
And I know that she's a really sweet woman
But you've kinda been giving her something
A little bit less than what she desires
Your blindness is getting in my eyes

Fuck you

You
You shouldn't be a hero
I am your slings and arrows

I am in love with your woman
And I bet even she knows it
But I haven't told her soul yet

Oh,
Her mind is like a perfect clock
It's oiled with brilliant thought
She rides bareback and runs with wolves
And you won't even leave your home

She's Juno and you're no Jupiter
Hell you're not even any real use to her
She's unique in the universe
And you're just the dude who asked her first

Maybe you'd be a father
But I doubt you'd ever bother
And I know it's not your fault
She's the earth and you're a salt

I know this really hurts
But it's just a factor of your worth
And I'm not perfect yet
But if you want to take a bet

I'm right
Track Name: Last
One day, when I see a little sun,
I'll go

One day, when I feel what you call fun,
I'll go back to the outdoors sunlight windblown hairs

Here in this house of mine by myself, I'm alive
But outside, weather's fine but...

One day, when I taste what you call young,
I'll go

One day, when it is time, then I will go
Back out into the air and seasons, dreams so fleeting

Here in this house of mine by myself, I'm alive
But outside, weather's fine but.. I'm in disguise

And I feel a little old and alone, but home

When it is time, then I will go
So alone, but yet it's near

Go
So alone
But yet it isn't time for me to go alone
