Track Name: Sparrow
Oh, my voice by now is gone,
Been up all night and now it's dawn.
The window's up, the air is hot,
The flies come in as I scroll your blog.

Oh, my voice won't make a sound.
I look to my brother, he's lying on the ground,
One hand with whiskey, the other on the hound.

Your letter's here, so neatly drawn,
These little things won't let me move on.

Oh, my voice won't make a sound.
I look to my brother, he's lying on the ground,
One hand with whiskey, the other on the hound.
The hornets are raging, a nest inside my head.
My brother says listen: we'll never understand.

He says for now you're young,
Outside we all get burned by the sun.

He says how bad it stung for him,
That's life: we all need the sun.
Track Name: Run Down the Stairs (Beat Happening)
i wanna tell the truth
i really do
i get so scared
when i try to talk to you
cause you know me when i open up my mouth
and you see my eyes when i say what i say
when i say what i say
yeah, when i say what i say
when i say what i say

but i don't know the truth
and i can't talk
i clap my hands
and go for a long walk
i cut my hair
i run down stairs
run down stairs

i dance around in a small room
with the lights turned down
i think about you now
i walk around late at night
cause i can't go to sleep cause you're not here
to turn out the light
turn, turn, turn out the light
i guess it's all right

my hands hold the world
they hold my head
they hold my knees up to my chest
they tell the truth
they love you so
my hands would touch you but they don't know how
they don't know how
they don't know how
they don't know how

(Songwriters: Bret Lunsford / Heather Lewis / Calvin Douglas Johnson)
Track Name: Assembly
Sit down right by the exit,
We need an escape plan,
To out in the open.
You draw the circle,
I'll bring the candle I stole from the cupboard.
We'll catch up with old friends.

Haven't spoken in years, forgot the reason.
Last time ended in tears and double treason.
Sounds too loud for my ears, the screams are bleeding.
Started off with a deer caught in the headlights.

Bright's working better to stay awake, up all night.
Light's working better to take the place of old spite.

See you in the spirit world.

And down to the garden descended spirits,
Whose light reflected in dewy grass,
And shone in conversation with moonlight.
Hundreds of robins flew,
And their feathers made the softest sound.
Track Name: Together
Morning run,
We'll beat the sun,
It'll be such fun,
Oh, together.

Stretch our legs,
Eat toast and eggs,
And protein shakes,
Oh, together.

Run in storms,
Keep track of form,
My body and yours,
Oh, together.

Hunter's dad kept a gun,
In a drawer near bed,
For reasons.

She listens good,
And makes me proud to be her friend.
Oh, forever.
