Track Name: Heavy Penny
heavy penny
(Montejo)

patience reeling
steadfast eye

I need to need it more lively
I need to need it more lively

two times the anger calls for two times the salt
two times the anger eats the sugar from the skull
oh pretty penny what a shit-load to write off
my little penny is your ennui sweet enough

I need to need it more lively
I need to need it more lively

two times the anger...

(don't you worry)

two times the salt...

(don't you mind)

I need to need it more
I need it more
I need to need it more lively
I need to need it more
lively
Track Name: Swimming with Fishes
swimming with fishes
(Montejo)

once and for all
please just shut up and come along
I'm not aiming to die here
stuck on a shelf

stained glass alibi
ricocheting my thoughts
to make it right
I just want to start being
beyond any reason

while I was walking in your shoes
all the stars lay on the ground
are you kidding there's no hell
just swimming with fishes
and feeding the hungry little ones

tall as it seems
look over the edge
how can you be
happy to hold on

while I was walking in your shoes
all the stars lay on the ground
are you kidding there's no hell
just swimming with fishes
and feeding the hungry little ones

see it wasn't bad to let it show
talk about catching on too slow
oh well

while I was walking in your shoes
all the stars lay on the ground
are you kidding there's no hell
just swimming with fishes
and feeding the hungry little ones
Track Name: Long Way
long way
(Montejo)

it happened just like a crash
I was certainly floored
it almost seems now little much mattered before

so where is this place
and how am I sure
I cannot help it I just have to be with you more

cause what you said to me has really gone a long way
and how you looked at me has really gone a long way
the way you smiled at me has really gone a long way
the way you touch me the way I touch you

it's like I'm out of my head somewhere high in the trees
I see your face in the flowers hear your voice in the breeze
I feel you in me
Do you feel me in you
what should I do now cause hanging here it's too hard to breathe

cause what you said to me has really gone a long way
and how you looked at me has really gone a long way
the way you smiled at me has really gone a long way
the way you kiss me the way I kiss you

No there are no reasons
No no reasons
No ther are no reasons
No no reasons

why

the way you smiled at me has really gone a long way
the way you want me the way I want you
Track Name: Stone White
stone white
(Montejo)

stone white roses
stone dead cause
stone cold stupid all along

ain't your mama
ain't your fan
ain't your monkey after all

the golden age of giving in is carved into your knees
there's so much more you haven't found I'm sure you'll never see

sleeping giant
sleepless land
sleeping standing all along

can't stop spending
precious time
melts like heaven in my hands

the higher ground makes so much sense when life is just one speed
if nothing else it sends you packing gently down the stream

shouldn't hurt to see
shouldn't hurt to see you
shouldn't hurt to see you on your own
on your own

the golden age of giving in is carved into your knees
there's so much more you haven't found I'm sure you'll never see
the higher ground makes so much sense when life is just one speed
if nothing else it sends you packing gently down the stream
Track Name: Hang On
hang on
(Montejo)

late last night
I thought of you driving
you were right there beside me
and the road was a drug

summer came
the sea was shining
the sky took you flying
but it's lonely above
let me carry you and

hang on
we're not on this earth too long
hang on
we're not on this earth too long

and when the line
is too dark to fathom
oh you can imagine
we're out of our minds

don't drain your life
I know you can find me
I'm right here inside you
all over your thoughts
let me carry you and

hang on
we're not on this earth too long
hang on
we're not on this earth too long
Track Name: Truth Is
truth is
(Montejo)

chalk it up to a good sign
bittersweet and mean
can't manage to dumb down
or keep the record clean
never hear what's buzzing
never got the goat
lying low in the deep end
suck it up till you choke

see the truth is
nothing to me
I'm not asking how you know it
or what you think it means
see the truth is
what you want it to be
and I...

drop the ball on the deadline
make a mess and a scene
last laugh is for idiots
and the big machine
sum it up in five words
never mind it's a joke
what's the big fucking hurry
coffin up in smoke

see the truth is
nothing to me
I'm not asking how you know it
or what you think it means
see the truth is
what you want it to be
and I...
Track Name: Sleepless
sleepless
(Montejo)

some days are hard to fake
out of mind and on your plate
dumb enough to eat your pride
better off killing time

why I wonder

hardly matters the field is gray
all the better to laugh than pray
where you going
where you been
walk straight through it
you fit right in

sounds a lot like kiss and tell
stick around you'll feel the nails
something's got your tongue again
swear to god you have no friends

bitter tears fill the hole
never mind the life you sold
can't face the fading son
look again you are no one

how I wonder

clouds of people free from love
see no evil in giving up
where you going
where you been
walk straight through it
you fit right in

what's gotten into you
all your thoughts are black and blue
on the road to one big joke
don't you know no one knows

sure time's running out
too sick to scream or shout
getting old as I can be
what's left for you and me

some days are hard to fake
out mind and on your plate
dumb enough to eat your pride

some days are hard to take
out mind and on your plate
better off killing time
Track Name: Sentimental
sentimental
(Montejo)

sentimental you're a bird on a chain
sentimental let me spell it all out
it's the same dead horse you've been kicking on

sentimental and no fire to feed
sentimental and no sign of a change
it's the same damn dope you've been living on

if the shoe don't fit
try the other foot
ain't no particular side
to embrace or deny
you gotta giddy up
to get down to the itching

cut it out, don't have a cow
and release it
cut it out, have a cow
and release it

if the shoe don't fit
try the other foot
ain't no particular side
to embrace or deny
you gotta giddy up
to get down to the itching
Track Name: Throw Your Weight
throw your weight
(Montejo)

strung out on free advice caustic points of view
the mood swings to pick me up but what am I to do
every time you throw your weight I tumble into trouble
every day I have to say I will not join the battle

what's with this endless fascination to belong
and did I mention that the stitches won't hold on
what's with this endless fascination to be strong

paper bombshell praising Cain celebrated coup
the mood swings the puppet strings the craving splits the roof
every time you throw your weight I tumble into trouble
every day I have to say I will not join the battle

what's with this endless fascination to belong
why can't you kill the motivation and move on
what's with this endless fascination to be strong
Track Name: Bourgeois Beat
bourgeois beat
(Montejo)

who's that banging on my back door
banging on every little nail and board, go away
the cops can't stop it or lock it up
no doctor can fix it or say enough, qu'est-ce que

oh they say you don't mean it cause you have no choice, oh yeah
yeah the world is crazy and you can't avoid what is now
I hate to break it to you

maybe you're home
(you don't know why)
maybe you're home
(you don't know why)
maybe you're home
(even though you don't know why nothing else seems to get you high)

guess the country didn't make for greener grass
you stumble all day sticking to your bourgeois plan, is that all
how's it gonna hit you when the years sink in
throw you from a bridge or will the drugs kick in, so it goes

oh they say you don't mean it cause you have no choice, oh yeah
yeah the world is crazy and you can't avoid what is now
I hate to break it to you

maybe you're home
(you don't know why)
maybe you're home
(you don't know why)
maybe you're home
(even though you don't know why nothing else seems to get you high

got a minute, need a second hand
got a minute, need a second hand
oh boy, that's right, no one can tell you
cause the pain's never coming to a perfect stop
no matter how it's going you just can't get off
that's right, that right

maybe you're home
(even though you don't know why)
maybe you're home
(even though you don't know why)
maybe you're home
(even though you don't know why)
maybe you're home

even though you don't know why
you're home
