Track Name: Flood
mess it up
make it light
do you know what this is for?
drive around inside your car

wake up early
look at your hand

don't forget
what it meant
i should save it
in my head
Track Name: Windshield Wiper
you can help me come down
you always know just what to say

i hate driving in the rain
put the wipers on
it makes me feel ok

make it better
make it better
make it better
windshield wiper
Track Name: Pretty Bird
go around the bend
watch me make the same mistakes twice
i think i've had enough
you always guess right

live inside that room
can always feel those things again
i need to let it go
say ill be a friend

have my time myself
no opinions now
watch the pretty bird fly
watch the pretty bird fly
Track Name: Over Me
it's coming closer to me
and i can't help falling asleep
thinking about what the last thing i'd see
it is over, over me

walking down the same little streets
wondering when they're both gonna meet
i heard a thing the other day
made it better made it go away
Track Name: Mighty Son
stay out they said
i hope you get it
don't wait forever
birds come back in the winter

don't do enough
to make it stop
keep hanging on
the mighty son

help me up
i fell back again
there's a lot of faces
i don't see anyone i know

don't do enough
to make it stop
keep hanging on
the mighty son
Track Name: Pickup
messing around don't look now
i hear something two halves almost gone
pickup game at your house
i would play house with you
the sun is getting low
the light stays on when we move

so let's move more
picking up the pieces of what life used to feel like

what we used to feel like
Track Name: Moon Legs
lift me up you graceful king
i see the life raft but don't know how
the cold water looks like you
still when moving, yeah me too


broken flashlight empty boy
hear the moon cause it don't bleed

Track Name: Bug Spray
so what does this mean
i'm really confused
is it what you want
is it what you'd choose
i'll try to explain what i mean
this all came to me in a dream

you got bug spray in your eyes
why don't you come back inside

does it sting, i mean it
i don't wanna fight
cause the sun is poking thru the clouds
if you go, i mean it
i won't come back
so let's sit for a while and talk
