Track Name: Ambiguous Girl
ambiguous girl
walks down the street
and folds herself
like paper

skin almost too thick to fold
licks each new bend and tucks her toes in last
keeps walking though

man passes
and tells her what shape she is today

ambiguous girl
walks down the street
and folds herself
like paper

licks each new tight fold
of her paper thin skin
tucks her toes in last
keeps walking though

waits patiently until
man passes
and tells her what shape she is today

ambiguous girl
walks down the street
and decides to fold herself
with brownish skin

calls mother to ask
what shape she is today

ambiguous girl
walks down the street
and asks herself
what shape she is today
today
Track Name: So Good
lookin down the mountain at the river
you know it can’t tell you what you need
all the things we fit into my car
wanna let them go and set me free

it ain’t so hard when you got it so good

new friend hands me a cigarette, lights it for me
says where you from and what’s your name
don’t want to share the answer
scared that it always sounds the same

it ain’t so hard when you got it so good

can’t show you how
don’t know what it’s about
Track Name: Stranded
staying put before my eyes
what do we do now
sit and watch the earth go by
they say it’s low brow and drawn out

where do we go now
i don’t care

singing songs out on the porch
to make it better but not much
take a walk down into town
but it’s not ready for lunch

but where do we go now
what else do we do now
where else do we go now

i don’t care

you look up and say to me
we could just live here, it’s nice
water still, so lovely
but we’re still stranded between

where do we go now
what else do we do now
where else do we go now

let’s go home
where paradise is far away
let’s go home
Track Name: Elsewhere
out of one room and into another
you said to me
can i wear your shirt yes you can

sleep on your left side
there's only one way
to bliss that's so right

can you take me there
can you show me how

paint me a picture
and show me the way that you want it
I'll take you there

but it isn't always easy
the apple doesn't always fall close to the tree
does it make you remember
that yesterday is not so far away

are you sleeping on your left side
does it feel right

can you take me there
can you show me how
Track Name: The Before Man
what would you say
if you could see me now
what would you say if i were to say
that you showed me how

how not live my life
unnecessary pain and strife

the before man he says to me
do you know what you want to be now
swimming in a pool that’s too big for you
but then you find the way out, unlike before

it shows itself
clear and bright
and then you’re
consumed with fright

he thought you would be there
but then you just stared
from far away
what do i do?
said the before man
just fall through the floor
don’t stay

where’s the way out
clouded sight
now he’s consumed
with fright
then it shows itself
clear and bright
no longer
consumed with fright
