Track Name: Year of the Rabbit (feat. Greta Kline)
2011, the year of the rabbit
i am feeling good
are you mad?
are you mad?
are you mad?
are you mad?
trouble believing what you say you're feeling
all you ever say is "good"
are you mad?
are you mad?
are you mad?
are you mad?
you give an inch and i shoot up a mile
oh, what i would give to see you crack a smile
lost in a furrowed brow and a coffee cup
if you could only tell me what is up
you give an inch and i crawl up the space between
the tiny crack, the tightening noose, the slightest inkling
i say, "i love you" just to get you to say anything
i hear they're calling it this year's snowpocalypse
do you wanna warm up with me?
are you home?
are you home?
are you home?
are you home?
trouble believing what you say you're thinking
all you ever say is just
"i don't know"
it's not enough to sit together inside a room
"to merely lay beside one another as lovers do"
staring off into the cosmic void of a screen
the strong and silent type has taken on a new meaning
Track Name: What the Fuck
i am feeling shook
a week without a notebook
trying to be open to whatever
leave a space beside me
a month without a body
your arms are filled with not me, but whatever
what the fuck is a kiss anyway?
what the fuck is this feeling?
the morning spent just laughing
the grabby, green grass grabbing
at our toes, dewy and gross
licking, wet, and slobbery
we found our shoes all soggy
and puppy paws leave muddy tracks on the sheets
what the fuck is a kiss anyway?
what the fuck is this feeling?
keep one for you in my pocket like a candy
something tells me you've got one saved for me
Track Name: Power
wish i could love you less like a praying mantis
rip your head off every time this starts to feel right
wish i could love you less
just love, that's it
oh! how our song's been sung
dropping petals one by one
oh! what power can be drawn
from just a day of being alone
gotta keep in mind it's not always your fault
the million tiny ways you make me feel small
you can be so anti-social
and i can just be terrible
oh! how our song's been sung
dropping petals one by one
oh! what power can be drawn
from just a day of being alone
don't be scared of losing
or something that is ending
love lies in the new things
and "every past is worth condemning"
oh! how our song's been sung
dropping petals one by one
oh! what power can be drawn
from just a day of being alone
Track Name: Drunk
drunk on the avenue
a rare night spent with you
"dinner date and a movie?"
"sounds amazing to me"
my life has become a series of
"what are you doing tonight?"s
and "oh my gosh, that's right
it's the 24th already
another show in brooklyn
or something i said i'd do"
i'd rather spend it with you
my dreams have all become
stressful scrambling in a rush
horseback riding competitions
and taking frankie to the veterinarian
see you at myrtle-broadway
i'm shy and keep walking
your eyes as sad as tree stumps
and nose just like a ski jump
i don't "just wanna fuck"
i wanna show you love
Track Name: Bulldog
has this month been tough?
is one month long enough
for you to feel free
and like the kind of dude who would be with me?
is it hard losing all your baby teeth
and being the only dream that comes to me?
and do you think about what the means?
dependability
to trust in me
truly, only
and do you possess the courage?
a bulldog in a white wedding dress...
Track Name: Sleeping Bear
o, sleeping bear
each heavy breath in this room we share
lingers forever because we are scared
to open the window and let in the world
for fear of what we are capable of
"people get over stuff, that's what they do"
you said that to me and maybe it's true
but it's hard to see past a hungry feeling
and i only live for what i can see
o, busy bee
all the pollen you collect
you carry each flower back in to your bed
you open the window and fly into the world
for you now know what you are capable of
and i understand everything you say
i just want to hear you explain it again
and i'm not ready to make amends
with the fucked up ways i love my friends
so, sleeping bear
each heavy toss in our bed
my dreams become muddied and interrupted
but it's a sweet reminder of
our calm and cozy love
