Track Name: Two Feet Shy
That’s all—you were always on the fall
Two feet shy of someone tall
Ooh lord! What an eyeful when you’d call
on her birdbath hands, if you’d land at all
Birdbath hands, if they’re hands at all

You’ve more room than I
to move your feet to
so why not move into
the room that you keep
on tiptoeing into
whenever I sleep?

Is it somewhere you’ve been to,
or somewhere I’ll send you
when I’ve spent too long
try’na map out the corners
where you hadn’t gone?

You and me
and the room
make three
of a pair with too
many legs to share
and too many ifs
I can’t sit on politely
No-no, I’m gonna find me
a four-legged chair
I’m gonna find me
a four-legged chair

That’s all—you were always on the fall
Two feet shy of someone tall
Ooh lord! What an eyeful when you’d call
on his birdbath hands, if you’d land at all
Birdbath hands, if they’re hands at all
Track Name: Hooks & Eyes
Came to see, but the sun won’t come to me
I won’t be the one who waits to speak
‘til the light brings something to say
at once or in piece-lings to parcel away
the fall of a slow-crawling, bellied sun
that drags on the ground in its legless way

Did you fall for a lamp below your feet?
Pretty things is all,
and pretty things won’t call
in the dark, won’t wait
while you sleep
I’d set them apart
before hooks and eyes 
are all that you seek
 
And I know what cuts you in two
(Two parts, too much
for all the good that they do)
You’d be surprised what a needle
and string can do to mend
these types, these types of things
Oh, what a needle
and string can do to mend
these types, these types of things

You: you walk a straight and narrow line
that I can never seem to find
or pick apart from either side

I: I think in circles, and it shows
I know everywhere they go
They only change their lines
enough to keep the play the same
A shrugging course
A shrub of sorts
that grew from what
I wouldn’t tame 

I only want the strangest things
but hoist the bells, and I will sing
A ribbon strung your heart along
It’s longer when the bow is gone

I know how to make a scene:
I’ll tell them each a different thing
and hope it all comes out
the moment that I clear the crowd
And tell me what you hope to bring to pass
by keeping me around
And tell me what you hope to bring to pass
by never being proud

You only want the simplest things
but hoist the bells, and I will sing
A ribbon strung your heart along
It’s longer when the bow is gone 

You ask me if I’ll see it through
I wish I knew, I wish I knew
The finer points have learned
to scrape themselves in turn
until they make
a square, unseemly way to crawl
a dull and hollowed-out escape
They only find it fit to call
when calling's all that I can take

You know the sound—some easy words
could twist & turn you out
You know I, you know I
will always track them down
You know the sound
You know the sound
You know the sound
and you know I, you know I
will always track it down
