about

This album is the creeping up of memories from childhood, stories that we told and re-told, new stories that have become memories. It is all true. It is all lies.

Track Name: Long Red Hair
born on a bitter winter night
their mother screamed at the sight.
the doctor yelled "it isn't right!"
he left them alone in fright
for hours.

the sisters lay there
one was rosy and one was fair
the only thing that they shared
is that they were connected
by the ends of their long red hair.

as they grew older their mother grew to love them
she couldn't bear to cut their hair
as it grew longer they grew apart
what only they knew is that they shared on heart
their blood flowed through their long red hair
they never thought to cut it, they wouldn't dare.

the sisters lived there
each loved the things
the other couldn't bear
the only thing that they shared
is that they were connected
by the ends of their long red hair.

one day the fair skinned sister met a man
while the rosy sister was at a news s
Track Name: Global Warming
the ocean levels are rising
the glaciers are melting
you know what that means
everything’s going swimmingly

global warming - it’s hot!
global warming - it’s not cool!
global warming
it’s too cool for school

my horse will be a sea horse
my cat will be ...a cat fish
my dog will be...really wet
and i will grow some fins...sushi!

global warming - it’s hot!
global warming - it’s not cool!
global warming
it’s too cool for school

the ozone layer is depleting
though that may feel kinda defeating
you don’t hav
Track Name: She Comes
when she comes knockin'
round my door
when she comes knockin'
gonna cry some more
when she comes knockin'
gonna shake my bones
when she comes knockin'
gonna break my home

when she comes
knockin'
knockin'
knockin'

when he comes knockin'
at my heart
when he comes knockin'
gonna fall apart
when he comes knockin'
gonna shiver and shake
when he comes knockin'
like an earthquake

when he comes
knockin'
knockin'
knockin'
knockin'

when they come knockin'
for the first time
when they come knockin'

round my door
when she comes knockin'
gonna cry some more
when she comes knockin'
gonna shake my bones
when she comes knockin'
gonna break my home

when she comes

Track Name: Bone Yard
i'll be black as coal
i'll be cold as steel
i'll be all the things
you never wanted to feel

i'll be deepest pit
i'll be biggest fear
i'll be all the things
you never wanted to hear

i'll be far from home
i'll be without light
i'll be all the things
that come out and scare you at night

and i'll be kissing you
in the boneyard
in the boneyard

i'll take off all my skin
just to let you in
you'll see my big black mess
my aching emptiness

you'll never fill me
no matter how long you try
you'll just get lost
inside

you'll lose those perfect eyes
lose that perfect mouth
and just like me you'll be
a pile of bones

and i'll be kissing you
in the boneyard
in the boneyard
Track Name: The Astronomer
the rings of saturn are so sexy
and jupiter's got that red spot
pluto and eris are just dwarves
but they get me twice as hot

oh planet porn
the solar system really turns me on
i'm floating through your galaxy
your milky way is all over me

i'd spread my legs for venus
and i'd like to live on mars
i'll take neptune or uranus
or any of the countless stars

oh planet porn
the solar system really turns me on
i'm floating through your galaxy
your milky way is all over me

and mercury's the hottest (objectively speaking)
being closest to the sun
and if that gets you off
you know you're not the only one

oh planet porn
the solar system really turns me on
i'm floating through your galaxy
your milky way is all over me
Track Name: Found Myself
i’ve been gone for a long time baby
i’ve been following you
i’ve been hanging on all of your words
saying i’ll always be true

but today i found myself
right where you left me
up on that shelf
right where you put me
right where you put me
away

i’ve been gone for a long time darling
or that’s the way it seems
i thought i could make you happy
by giving up my dreams

but today i found myself
right where you left me
up on that shelf
right where you put me
right where you put me
away

(bbq grill solo!)

i’ve been gone for a long time sugar
