Track Name: You Need a Visa
When words fail and render us
Helpless and victims of
A self-inflicted pain, we'll try again.

When falling in love while talking about the universe,
(It seems like the Earth can breathe)
I can say so much, but I can never tell her
(What you really mean).

When loves leaves us all behind,
We will just take the time
To get up on our feet and try again.
Track Name: The Baker
Jamaica's little.
The moon is bright.
The kids are sleeping.
It's late at night.
When we talk about death
We talk about life.
I know it's strange.
Just give it time.

Talking about the universe
And how we're small
And how our loneliness
Connects us all
Well I always feel lonely
But I don't right now
Cause talking to you
Feels better somehow.

Even when we're small,
We're still so large.
An atom's the smallest
but it's the biggest part.
And if we break apart
like an atom or a star,
We'll remember the explosion
That will be our favorite part.
Track Name: Thumbnail
Sailing flags on sinking ships
In this bed, in this apartment.
And if you call me, I am sorry
When I don't call you back
I take some time to react.

Thumbnail is smaller than it seems.
You're not that far away from me.
Thumbnail will hurt you more than me

So you'll find comfort inside your cotton bedsheets.
I'll find solace in everything surrounding.
We'll find home in between each other's bodies.
Intertwined and knotty.
Track Name: Variations on an Aria
Hold me so close
To a lang that I don't know.
I've seen so many
Stars that I can't let it go.

I don't want to be like them.
I'd rather stay here by the sea.
This island is a place I'd rather be.
Track Name: Eulita Terrace
Hold me
Kill me
Mark your lips within me
Sip yourself to sleep till you can
Feel me
Breathe
in the same air I breathe
Hate me
Regret me
Tell me that you're better off
Track Name: Josephine Ave
Her ears are running low, tell her that you love her
Her sight, it follows slow
So show her how you love her
She's running our of space to hold that which is growing
Her body can't contain the weeds that will take over
You're sleeping more and more but please don't hold on longer
I'll love you even more,
No matter if you wake
Track Name: Hackensack Hospital
You were sleeping in a hospital bed.
You said you were scared but I'm sure you meant sacred.
You're half my size but you still made me feel so small.
I'm still your grandson after all.

How far is heaven?
'Cause I hope it's too far to spare the gas.
How long is your lifespan?
'Cause you got me fooled to think it's far ahead.

And if you think you won't see me,
I will be there when you wake up.
I'll drive down to New Jersey.
I'll make it to the hospital.
Track Name: Sleeptalk
What does it mean to dream?
'Cause I've been laying wide awake
With a figure hovering over me
Saying if I fall asleep, I won't wake to see
Tomorrow. So call someone, call someone, call someone

What does it mean to wake?
Because I keep my doors locked, but even here oh, I'm not safe
When what I fear most is the voice in my head
He walks three feet behind and he'll leave me for
dead
I won't call

We've all become victims of the shorter days
