Track Name: Autoreply
1-2-3-4-5
Don't you know I'm alive
and I'm waiting for it
I can feel it inside- oh yeah- I'm calling out to it

You know it's right: right as can be
And I'm thinking you would get right back to me

But you send me an
Autoreply, Autoreply
Autoreply, autoREply
Autoreply, autoreply
You're Out of the Office

(I sent you an electronic mail today, re: Humboldt County and its majestic shores. And I was SO excited when you got right back to me, but you know what?? You know what it was?)
Track Name: Spell It Out
Come on, come on, come on, come on
I know you you know what's going on
I know you know I know what you see through...
Do I have to spell it out for you?

Well, to B-E S-P-E-C-I-F-I-C, you see me
through those D-A-Ngerous E-Y-E-S Y-E-S
Y-E-S Y-E-S O-O-O

Come on, come on, come on, come on
I know you you know what's going on
I know you know I know what we could do:
Do I have to spell it out for you?

Well, to B-E S-P-E-C-I-F-I-C, you see me
through those D-A-Ngerous E-Y-E-S Y-E-S
Y-E-S Y-E-S O-O-O

Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on, come on
Do I have to spell it out for you?
Track Name: Take Us With You
I can hear you pacing
out in the hallway
I can hear you breathing
under my skin
I can hear your heart beating
outside the window
I can feel you knowing
when to begin

And there's not a sound in this world that you've ever heard before like this
Take us with you!
Take us with you when you go!

I can see you rising up
above the water
I can feel your eyes all
over my skin
I can feel my heart breaking
in half a second
I can feel it starting over again

And there's not a sound in this world that you've ever heard before like this
Take us with you!
Take us with you when you go!

When you go When you go When you go home

When you go home, there's a reason
There's an intricacy that probably will be in season
What you find out when you go home: there's a complexity that ceases to be
When you go

When you go home
When you go home
When you go home
Take us with you! Take us with you when you go!
Track Name: Enumerated List of Probable Difficulties
Lay out the pattern for me
Turn the key and loose the lock
Swing the door and then be shocked
as it knocks you on the floor
Sprinting past you- thick and fast you
are lying on the floor

I've got a list to give you of things that aren't gonna go too easily and it goes:
1. This moment
2. The next moment
3. The memory of you in items 1 and 2

Lay out the pattern for me
Look at me and shut your mouth
Flocks of birds are flying South
as things begin to freeze
Looking down they see you and they say,

I've got a list to give you of things that aren't gonna go too easily and it goes:
1. This moment
2. The next moment
3. The memory of you in items 1 and 2
Track Name: How Real You Are
Conformists and Bureaucrats:
they will not help you here-
The systems that go like that:
they are the picture of irrelevance here

And you think that you know, but do you really know-
How Real You Are
how rare is the light
How near can the sun really be on a night like tonight?

How Real You Are
how rare is the light
How real can someone really be on a night like tonight?

This night is a driver (you're making references)
Who looks at you in the rearview mirror (to everything you've ever seen)
Hello. Where we heading? (where we gonna sleep tonight?)
"Hello?"

How Real You Are
Track Name: What's Happening to Me?
Whoa whoa whoa
Do you know
What's happening to me?
Don't you say that it's as bad as it could be-
Can't you see I'm IMPLODING like a STAR in here
with a sad and lonely and disintegrating soul

Whoa whoa whoa
Do you know
What's happening to you?
Don't you say that there is nothing you can do-
Can't you see we're EXPLODING into the STRATOSPHERE
to what orbits above the places everybody knows

What's happening, what's happening to me?
I'm alone in a crowded room with a magazine
What's happening, what's happening to me?
I'm outside myself and everything looks empty.

(I'm ashamed to say: I was complicit entirely
in the simple way it became a commodity..
and all of the oddities that followed, and all of the bullshit that we swallowed:
WE ARE A PART OF IT)
Drop your pen accidentally on the floor.
When you bend to pick it up, you'll see me standing by the door
Close your eyes,
Try to pretend
That none of this
None of this will end

What's happening, what's happening to me?
I'm alone in a crowded room and it's deafening me
What's happening, what's happening to me?
I'm outside myself and looking at a shell and it's empty.
Track Name: White Mercedes
Take it down three notches and that's probably where we are.
Get your head up off the bar and take notice
I know you can't breathe the air down here without a filter of some kind
And you had all of us in mind at this moment

Give give give
Give us a
Break break break
'Cause we can't
Take take take
What you're spewing out, spewing out. Get your
Face face face
out of my
Face Face Face
What rhymes with FACE FACE FACE?
(there's no trace of a space in this place for your stupid face)

Picking your teeth in your white mercedes -
Your mouth says no but your eye says maybe
Once a quandry, Twice a lady, Three times in this type of shady-

OH YEAH! (I've been trying to say) OH YEAH!
RECKLESS PERSON
OH YEAH!
