America

Is it love you’re after?
A sign of the flood or one more disaster
Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America
 
I have loved you, I have grieved
I’m ashamed to admit I no longer believe
I have loved you, I received
I have traded my life
For a picture of the scenery
Don’t do to me what you did to America
Don’t do to me what you did to America
 
I give it all up in laughter
The sign of the cross awaiting disaster
The dove flew to me like a vision of paranoia
The dove flew to me like a vision of paranoia
 
I have loved you like a dream
I have kissed your lips like a Judas in heat
I have worshiped, I believed
I have broke your bread for a splendor of machinery
Don’t look at me like I’m acting hysterical
Don’t look at me like I’m acting hysterical
 
I have worshipped, I have cried
I have put my hands in the wounds on your side
I have tasted of your blood
I have choked on the waters, I abated the flood
I am broken, I am beat
But I will find my way like a Judas in heat
I am fortune, I am free
I’m like a fever of light in the land of opportunity
 
Don’t do to me what you did to America
(Don’t do to me what you do to yourself) [x4]
 
Don’t do to me what you did to America [x4]
 

Now That I'm Older

It's different now I think
I wasn't older yet
I wasn't wise, I guess
Somewhere I lost whatever else I had
I wasn't over you
I see it run inside itself
And then I called you out
I'm not such older than I was
I'm feeling so much righter now
And then I woke myself, confused
Your dress comes down
To you, don't get it wrong, don't get excited
I wanted so much to be at rest
Now that I'm older
So be it so of love
 
The silent man comes down
All dressed in radiant colors
You see it for yourself
To demonstrate my love for you
You I thought I was so in love
Some say it wasn't true
Now that I'm older
Now, now that I'm older
 
There's so much travel
And now that I'm older
Someone else, can see it for myself
So much travel, yeah
Now that I'm older
 

The Predatory Wasp Of The Palisades Is Out To Get Us!

Thinking outrageously I write in cursive
I hide in my bed with the lights on the floor
Wearing three layers of coats and leg warmers
I see my own breath on the face of the door
 
Oh I am not quite sleeping
Oh I am fast in bed
There on the wall in the bedroom creeping
I see a wasp with her wings outstretched
 
North of Savanna we swim in the palisades
I come out wearing my brother's red hat
There on his shoulder my best friend is bit seven times
He runs washing his face in his hands
 
Oh how I meant to tease him
Oh how I meant no harm
Touching his back with my hand I kiss him
I see the wasp on the length of my arm
 
Oh great sights upon this state! Hallelu-
Wonders bright, and rivers, lake. Hallelu-
Trail of Tears and Horseshoe Lake. Hallelu-
trusting things beyond mistake. Hallelu-
 
We were in love. We were in love.
Palisades! Palisades! Palisades
I can wait. I can wait.
 
Lamb of God, we sound the horn.
Hallelujah!
To us your ghost is born.
Hallelu-
 
I can't explain the state that I'm in
The state of my heart, he was my best friend
Into the car, from the back seat
Oh admiration in falling asleep
All of my powers, day after day
I can tell you, we swaggered and swayed
Deep in the tower, the prairies below
I can tell you, the telling gets old
Terrible sting and terrible storm
I can tell you the day we were born
My friend is gone, he ran away
I can tell you, I love him each day
Though we have sparred, wrestled and raged
I can tell you I love him each day
Terrible sting, terrible storm
I can tell you...
 

Seven Swans

We didn't sleep too late
There was a fire in the yard
All of the tress were in light
They had no faces to show
 
I saw a sign in the sky
Seven swans, seven swans, seven swans
I heard a voice in my mind
I will try, I will try, I will try
 
I will try, I will try, I will try
 
We saw the dragon move down
My father burned into coal
My mother saw it from far
She took her purse to the bed
 
I saw a sign in the sky
Seven horns, seven horns, seven horns
I heard a voice in my mind
I am Lord, I am Lord, I am Lord
 
He said, I am Lord, I am Lord, I am Lord
He said, I am Lord, I am Lord, I am Lord
 
He will take you
If you run, He will chase you
He will take you
If you run, He will chase you
 
'Cause He is the Lord
'Cause He is the Lord
 
Seven swans, seven swans, seven swans
Seven swans, seven swans, seven swans
 

Size Too Small

I was the best man in a size too small
You were my best friend, going at it all
And what if I put off my inheritance?
Where is the best man? All arise us all in peace
 
I still know you
And I still like you, the best man
And I still owe you
 
Everything rises, going at it all
All the surprises in a size too small
And what if I told you I was still in love with this?
Would you surprise us in a size for all of me?
 
I still know you
And I still like you, the best man
I still know you, the best man
I still owe you
 

The Dress Looks Nice On You

I can see a lot of life in you
I can see a lot of bright in you
And I think the dress looks nice on you
I can see a lot of life in you
 
I can see a bed and make it too
I can see a fireside turn blue
And I can see the lot of life in you
Yes, I can see a lot of life in you
 
When the world looks back
when the face looks after that
I can see a lot of life in you
Yes, I can see a lot of life in you
 
I can see a lot of life in you
I can see your bed and make it too
And I think the dress looks nice on you
Yes, I can see a lot of life in you
 
I can see a lot of life in you
Yes, I can see a lot of life in you
 

All The Trees Of The Field Will Clap Their Hands

If I am alive this time next year
will I have arrived in time to share?
And mine is about as good this far
And I'm still applied to what you are
 
And I am joining all my thoughts to you
And I'm preparing every part for you
 
And I heard from the trees a great parade
And I heard from the hills a band was made
And will I be invited to the sound?
And will I be a part of what you've made?
 
And I am throwing all my thoughts away
And I'm destroying every bet I've made
And I am joining all my thoughts to you
And I'm preparing every part for you

Love Yourself

Love yourself
You are the one thing
I needed
Share of yourself
Show me the things that
You believe in
 
Love, can you love yourself
Show me everything
Every reason to believe in yourself
 
Make a shelf
Put all the things on
That you believe in
 
Love, can you love yourself
Show me everything
Every reason to believe in yourself
 
Love yourself
You are the one thing
I believe in
 
Love, can you love yourself
Show me everything
Every reason to believe in yourself
Make a shelf
Put all the things on
That you believe in
 
Love, can you love yourself
(you are the one thing)
Show me everything
(you are the one thing)
Every reason to believe in yourself
(you are the one thing)
Love, can you love yourself
(you are the one thing)
Show me everything
(you are the one thing)
Every reason to believe in yourself
(you are the one thing)
 

Lonely Man of Winter

[Verse 1]
In the world that you would make up
With unicorns and buffalo packs
I know that you would wake up
With the sunny side touching your back
 
[Chorus 1]
Is it the lonely man of Christmas?
Coming up with theories on him
Is it the lonely man of Christmas?
He's riding in the devil's abyss
 
[Verse 2]
Oh, I would rate the future
If I could put a finger on it
But I have no idea
If what I want is better than this
 
[Chorus 2]
Is it the lonely man of winter?
I could put my finger on that
Is it the lonely drive to Denver?
The loneliness of Hoppington's hat
 
[Chorus 3]
Is it the time we spent in silence?
The silence of a winter he had
Is it the lonely man of winter?
I could put my finger on that
 
[Outro]
And even if it's Christmas
Could we just pretend for a bit
That everything we went through
Was someone else's carpenter kiss
