Soft Contact when I woke up to this feeling i felt soaked in my bones like I'd never planned to be lonely i just need somebody to hear this favor for me what's it done for me? what's it done for me? what's it done for me? then i cast out all of these notions is this the first of many years alone? or what's to come? the soft contact? will I compromise this indifference? any claims to the stars can't be taken with ours and matched with smoke from an empty bar what's it done for me? what's it done for me? what's it done for me?

TOSABESATOCH you came at me like a question built like an old LP record when life staggered out of sight, you came running to meet me in the mountains the cabins down below- they have never seen their heaven touch the trees, their heaven touch the treetops blindside, we never made it blue-eyed, a favor traded now I know my boundaries better ever since we listened together to a one-word rhyme, an echo and a chime between the chimneytop and the mountain Rock it's a crime to be sleeping it's a crime to be sleeping through

Stay In Touch thought you were a lost cause caught wayward in the fray but then a diamond bright resolution shined and now we found our way a criminal distraction has led you to believe I know you've got a lot of information hanging around your head but that doesn't excuse this mess this quiet town revenge allowed parted ways on frozen ground if there's a chance, pass on romance leave our fate to circumstance when I'm around, there's common ground though you can't commit the moment I leave town devote yourself the greatest wealth keep your word- remember how it felt a preacher in another life a killer in the next you walked too far behind for us to stay in touch stay in touch

Rolling Hills, Rolling Eyes for this to work, we'll carry on as strangers through rolling hills and roaring hearts resist the urge to fuck your way to freedom the great unsaid will be your end I'd like to see the falling of the leaves yeah maybe the trees can follow the years have passed without you even knowing the empty frames, the art gone all wrong
