Track Name: The City
see the man in the corner there
asleep in a tall glass with messy hair
his days are numbered by the ones he left behind

pockets empty, nothing changed
by bartenders who know the game
with so many secrets just too high for him to find

with nothing to say at all

two old shoes cannot contain
two feet too stubborn to remain
where his fathers and his fathers stood in place

kiss those subway dreams goodbye
beneath the city streetlights
pull down the shade and bid this country a goodnight

with nothing to say but goodnight

he lives in the cracks of the city
they say he'll never be found
one day i'll make a patriot excavation
down to the underground
Track Name: Twelve Minutes North
explosions down
above the ground
turn water black and gold
it sparkles on the surface
and fuels the devil's furnace

the look she gave to me
like children running free
chilled my blood and bones
and set fire to the gulf of mexico

set fire

it chilled my blood and bones
and set fire to the gulf of mexico
Track Name: Are You My Mother?
are you my mother?

went to a sheep
plain as can be
just to ask her a question
are you my mother?

and the sheep said no

walked down the street
the smoke that i breathed
was too much like me

so i went to a factory
plenty of machines
just to ask them a question
are you my mother?

and the answer they gave
as i coughed and i wheezed
was no
