Track Name: reminder #1
The tattoo on your shoulders
That you hide on business days
The ink across your backside that's now all faded gray
It serves to me a symbol
From September into may
A reminder of the fact I never loved you anyway

So if you see me beachside
Anytime past 8 or 10
I'll bottle up the anger I've been holding back since then
And the cigarette you're holding
As you're asking me to stay
'Sa reminder of the fact I never loved you anyway
Track Name: three eggs and a piece of toast
I'm sick and tired of being sick of myself
I think it's time that I took all of these books off the shelf
I think I'm done living on Jasons couch
I think it's time I tried being in charge of myself
Get in a car and move to Washington state
Maybe watch what I ate
And try to grow up anyway

It isn't much too late
If I start today

I'm sick and tired of watching movies alone
Herzog's depressing enough anyway
I think I'm done with Hopewell
And another day
I'll be deleting all the music that ever put up anyway
Track Name: liv ullmann and a winter at home
Ashes and diamonds
And autumn sonata
Post graduate parties
kids drinking rumchata
And you're sculpting with light
In the back of my mind
While my nose is wrapped up
Reading sculpting in time
And there's
Puke on the floor
And the neighbors next door
Will be calling the landlords tonight

I used to read joyce
I used to read yeats
Gonna move to Vermont
Get some wrought iron gates
And never think of this bullshit again
