Track Name: Old Friends
A violet umbrella she spins in the cold stabbing rain
a fortune teller could sell her
in a pirate parade
she juggles her needle
she looks for a new healthy vein
every breath that she takes is a moment she lets slip away

The flowers on the table have died long before you arrived
and the song that comes on the radio plays all the the time
you're talking in circles
the room gets so dark you can't see
then you find yourself in the gutter with blood in your teeth

Old Friends

You jumped from your window
to hide from the life you despised
but that couldn't kill you it just made you feel more alive
your heads filled with cobwebs
your memory lacks any pain
you feel your existence
has got to have someone to blame

Old Friends
Track Name: Canopy
Oh, my mind weaves
lost in day dreams
floating high above the trees
it's true, I still love you like I used to
but I'm not the man that I used to be

I've grown tired of peace and quiet
I've gone crazy cause I've seen it all
and all I need
is your voice to carry me
far away from this world below

Your canopy covers me tonight
Your haunting kisses on my cheek ignite
a fire so bright
it leads me back to you

I walked backwards, fumbling for my matches
trying to remember yesterday
when up blew a swift wind and got me back to thinkin
where it was that I went astray

Cause gone are the bright lights, brown eyes, dark nights
gone are the days of the curtain calls
a rolling breeze on calming seas
is what awaits me after all

Your canopy covers me tonight
Your haunting kisses on my cheek ignite
a fire so bright
it leads me back to you
Track Name: Less Plastic
Come to your window honey, I've been waiting
my heart is aching won't you let me stay
I feel the rivers breaking at my doorstep
I feel the planes roaring low everyday
and ain't no reason, not one I can find
for you to keep your love inside

I sat and wondered all alone for awhile
passed up my chances on a wishing well
lost track of time when I left that morning
and now I'm sinking all the way to hell
so come on baby let me be your man
I've got a fire in my soul and a rose in my hand

I've been waiting, trying to get this off my chest
but I never know how to say it best
you think I'll use you
and I'll throw you back
but you ought to know me better than that

Don't you get caught up with those crowds in the backstreets
they'll take you out until you're beat
they got a funny way of twisting up stories
I wish for once that you'd listen to me
so if your looking for a reason to hide
just come and look in their big red eyes
Track Name: Don't Hang On
You spend all your money on your thrift store clothes
you're in Brooklyn baby better turn up your nose
I'm still wondering where the evening goes
I'm a bastard son, I'm the holy ghost

I went out walking through the late night freaks
where the night clubs neon hang;
flashing, free
and I knew I could find you amongst the thieves
somewhere down on Washington St.

Oh, you said it'd bring us both together
I know
that you're never coming home
I forgot that you were gone
but now you come around singing my song
I'm letting go so don't hang on

You think about the people that you used to know
how they covered their eyes
and let their hearts grow cold
when you left me standing in the fallin snow
with a ring in my hand and the answer, no

So don't go saying your a friend of mine
cause those days are lost in another time
and I'll be the one to put you in the ground
if I see your face come hanging around


Oh, you said it'd bring us both together
I know
that you're never coming home
I forgot that you were gone
but now you come around singing my song
I'm letting go so don't hang on
