Track Name: One More Shot
One More Shot

All these adverbs in my head
I paused to listen
And they said
“We’re lonely”

Tapping loud at my front door
Spilling ink across the floor
And yes, I like it

Waving flags on every street
Shake my paw and get a treat
It’s frightening

Your daily dose of pure outrage
Blood is spilled on every page

One more shot
And then the war is over
One more shot
That’s all we got
One more shot
And then the party’s over
One more shot
That’s all we got

All these opinions in the way
I pause to listen
And they say
“We’re rising”

Tapping loud at my front door
Spilling verbs across the floor
And yes, I like it

Waving flags on every street
Shake my paw and get a treat
It’s frightening

Your daily dose of pure outrage
Blood is spilled on every page

One more shot
And then the war is over
One more shot
That’s all we got
One more shot
And then the party’s over
One more shot
That’s all we got
Track Name: Short-Brain
Short Brain

You're a short-brain
With very tall expectations
You want the fast lane
But you crashed and died

There are times
When the data doesn't rhyme
And the screaming mob
just kills itself

And there are ways
To tally up your days
Like dusty trophies
On a shelf

You're a short-brain
With white shoes and a crock-pot
You've got a slow drain
And it's making you mad

There are times
When the data doesn't rhyme
And the screaming mob
just kills itself

And there are ways
To tally up your days
Like dusty trophies
On a shelf

You’re a short-brain

Track Name: Fathom
Fathom

Took my nephew to see the ocean
He cried when saw the waves
But begged to stay
What did he see in those foaming breakers?
How small he was?
His dying day?
He held my hand in the shallow water
We waded in,
Began to play
Two tiny specks, now we were rising
We closed our eyes
Drifted away
Starlight floated up to meet us
Our bodies gone
They were in the way
Took my nephew to see the ocean
He cried when saw the waves
But begged to stay
Track Name: Idling Engines
Idling Engines

Let’s burn it down
Let’s watch it die
‘Cause it’s rotten to the core
Let’s form a wave
So very high
And wash it all away
Let’s wash it all away
Let’s wash it all away!

We’re going deeper
Passing out would be much cheaper
Our bank accounts are frozen once again

Do you remember
Our epic bender?
Well, that’s okay ‘cause
Really neither do I
That’s okay ‘cause
Really neither do I
That’s okay, ‘cause
Really it’s all just a lie!

Let’s burn it down
Let’s watch it die
‘Cause it’s rotten to the core
Let’s form a wave
So very high
And wash it all away
Let’s wash it all away
Let’s wash it all away!
