Track Name: Barcode
everything you heard from your friends it don't mean nothing
and anyone who said they can see past their hands, they were bluffing
'cause there's nothing to see
there's nothing to do, 'cause there's nothing to see
there's nowhere to be that you can't buy
'cause there's no one to be, there's nothing to see that you can't buy online

all the books you own, they sit at home, they don't mean nothing
so you're writing your own in some vain hope that they'll fix something
but there's nothing to say that you can't read, 'cause there's nothing to see
there's nowhere to be that you can't buy
there's no one to be, there's nothing to see that you can't buy online
Track Name: Cop
that cop, maybe he just needs money
your jokes, maybe they're not so funny
it's not that; i'm sure we're all out of laughs
one day all of the trees got old and they made all the soil fold
and you saw that you were only the same

stay away from me
stay away from me now

that cop, maybe he killed some kid
that cop, maybe he'll say he did
but if not, well, he's only a cop
think back: what was it that he said?
mouth holes hide what's inside a head
tongues and teeth, they only get in the way

please stay away
please stay away from me
now go away
Track Name: James Riverbank Blues
i want to live by the river, want to live there alone
there's a lot of people wanna call the river home
all the government workers trying to get this place zoned
tv guy wants me to subscribe, phone guy wants me to buy a phone

birds called out to someone, i called back to them
birds turned into people, i turned into my only friend
in his new found body one called out to me again
i didn't understand him--that's how conversations end

i dreamt we were living by a river made of rocks
i got woken up again 'cause i live by a clock
Track Name: Wake Song, Pt. 2
on the day that you die, all the people you knew while alive will walk by
they'll all say hello as fast goodbye
on the day that you die, what's mine is yours and what's yours is mine
life was a shelf they put on way too high

i'm not waiting around for you
i'm putting on my shoes
i'm not sticking around for you
i've got better things to do with my life

here it is. it's your other birthday and the guests talk it away
they all will leave as fast as they came
on the day that i die, i'll get to sleep and i won't have to try
life was a show; the ratings were not so high

no one's waiting around for you
we're all putting on our shoes
no one's sticking around for you
we've all got better things to do with our lives
