Track Name: Kings
Little eyes
See a diving kite
Land on top
Of the waterline
Made to look like a bird
You tried to be heard
You drifted further out
Into the ocean’s mouth
You were a living thing
Through those little eyes

Oooooooooooh

In Fort Lauderdale
We swam back and forth
As they raised the flags
For the manowars
And from the salt in the air
We forgot all our cares
We were the kings of the beach
So far beyond reach
We were living things
Through those little eyes

Oooooooooooh

We were kings of the beach
Track Name: Rat Island
A drop of land lies up ahead
The motor takes us to the edge
Summer flies don’t ever stop
On rat island

He walks to the edge of the dock
Holds his binoculars up
Still in sight

I don’t know how long
Until I’m coming back
I don’t know how long
Until I’m coming back

How long
And how far
How long
And how far

Sensor lights go on and off
Home then gone then home again
Trash cans turned all on their sides
By teenagers

Mischief wins over your heart
Where rat island is never far
When fires burn all through the night
We never sleep

I don’t know how long
Until I’m coming back
I don’t know how long
Until I’m coming back

How long
And how far
How long
And how far
Track Name: Switchblade Coast
You’re gonna go go go
Around to the back
And wait for me right there
You got a blade
That’s what they said
Details were unclear
Get by on the coast
By staying close
To the gate
Where you wait
For everyone to leave

We’d like to take it all back
Keep it all safely packed
You made a fool
Out of everyone

We were too dumb to care
Fucked on fresh air
You made a fool
Out of everyone

The cliffs drop
You wade through the caves
And I’d never jumped from higher
The sky’s clouds
We’re at the end of the world
The edges so feel so close
To leave again
Would leave us all daydreaming
Of our beds
So we float here
Instead

You’re gonna wait for the moment
Then take out your switch blade
It’s dull and it’s pointless
But we all stand in place
Track Name: Beach 1 (Fire Island)
The afternoon shines through the leaves
And the walkways they keep us on our feet
Every weekend means something new
But this one doesn’t seem to want to leave
And I’m not going anywhere

I see you wave
You see me wave back
At the end of the block
By the ocean path

I see you wave
You see me wave back
I’ll always choose
To be here instead

It’s pitch black until our eyes adjust
The half moon it fills up our cups
You can the sound of wind and waves
A group of friends laugh and play
We let the night unfold

I see you wave
You see me wave back
At the end of the block
By the ocean path

I see you wave
You see me wave back
I’ll always choose
To be here instead
Track Name: Beach 3 (Ocean Blue)
Tell me why
You’ve been lost
And I will help
Get you across

The ocean blue
Where you’ve got no line
Dangling around
Out of time to…

Think
Think

I heard you laugh out loud
Through the halls of your submarine
Creeps out every now and then
Then you hit the rocks

Look upon
The ocean blue
Feel her pain
Take over you

And the water comes
Up to your knees
Until time runs out
And takes you from your…

Dream
Dream

I heard you laugh out loud
Through the halls of your submarine
Creeps out every now and then
Then you hit the rocks

I heard you laugh out loud
Through the halls of your submarine
Creeps out every now and then
Then you hit the rocks

Ocean blue
Track Name: Bricola
Don't you want to go
Where the waves put you to sleep
And the floors they creek with
every move you make

I'm trying not to stare
at the seashells in your hair
Like you've been washed out to sea
And now you're back

You finally awake
From the sun in your eyes
Breakfast at two
A drink with some ice

We'll stay far behind
Let the planes pass us by
And dive down to the eels
that make us jump

And the air fills up our lungs
In a place we don't belong
Our eyes go wide
At the distance up above

You finally awake
From the sun in your eyes
Breakfast at two
A drink with some ice

Sleep beside me
Sandy as we lift into the air
Imagining we’re waiting
For the weather to be fair

A bit of rain
Comes right along with blue still in the sky
Far off lightening keeps me waiting
But you no longer care

You’re Bricola...
Track Name: Oval Lawn
Listen
Oh listen
In a tree
You are frozen
But I’ll get through to you
Six feet
To the forest floor
All paved
And spacious
Twelve feet tall you stand
I’m calling you so please listen

This is the last
Day of our lives
We’re so dramatic
But that’s the feeling
Brought on
By something
Much like poison
On a bright day
We’re so frightened
Over nothing

And clear skies
All around us
Overtaking
And draping us out on the oval lawn
And breathing
In the damp air
All heavy
It gets inside you
And haunts you to the bone
We’ll wait until you come back home

This is the last
Day of our lives
We’re so dramatic
But that’s the feeling
Brought on
By something
Much like poison
On a bright day
We’re so frightened
Over nothing
Track Name: Salzburg
Overseas we could buy our own
Liquor
Walk the streets like we were teenage
Victors
And breeze through all of the sights
To the end

And the cold air held records
That year
Like I cared As I stared
Down a wall of the highest peak
I’d been on

And the new year’s display
Splashed across our lit eyes
In salzburg lies
A wandering time
Track Name: 80's Houses
I see you falling behind
We drive till the streets all unwind
Cross country to start a new life
We disappear
Fall asleep
Tired from too many tears
Tired because you’re no longer here
Tired as it all became clear

Before
You were gone
It all seemed alright
Now you’re gone
As we pull through the night
We stare up ahead
Fixed on where the ground beats red
And air conditioning
And the airplane wing’s
Caught my eye

Get out of the car and see what we’ve been waiting for
80’s contemporary houses with nothing else in store
Southern folks who always want to pair my mother up
As if she even has the time to fall back into love

Before
You were gone
It all seemed alright
Now you’re gone
As we pull through the night
We stare up ahead
Fixed on where the ground beats red
And air conditioning
And the airplane wing’s
Caught my eye
Track Name: Hotel Glass
The outside world it moves too fast
When staring through the hotel glass
We’re on a beach vacation
Without the beach without the vacation
We can’t try to escape the city walls
So we check into some place
That we pass along the way

She looks like she’s been always stranded on
An island where she drank up all the sun
And she makes your blood get warmer
As she rests herself against your side
The evening hours they wrap you up
And time slows down until
We see that morning has come

Oooooh

The car pulls up we make it wait
We’re strangers once we start the day
My heart is on my sleeve yet you have them
so convinced
Through every door there is a spy
Their prying eyes
Are catching every glance

Oooooh

I hate to wait
Track Name: Tidal Wave
Let’s go out into the water
We’ll step in slow
Forces like no others
Force us to go

Oh, like a tidal wave
You walked in
Oh, and that look you gave
Did me in

She had two ways
On the drive
Sun in her eyes
Like I’d ever stay behind

Oh, like a tidal wave
You walked in
Oh, and that look you gave
Did me in

Place the chair into the sand
Times goes on and on and on and on
Hold me
Hold me
Hold me
Oh hold me
Place the chair into the sand
Times goes on and on and on and on…
