  1. “Rent I Pay” 3:09LYRICS
    I been losing sleep
    Just nodding
    Sleep that I wish that I know’d
    Mmm and I lost all my tapes of back masking
    Peace just for asking
    Peace that I ought to be owed

    And that’s the rent I’m paying
    Just like my brother would say it

    Out amongst the stars and the stones
    Every kinda fortune gets old
    Every kinda line is gonna come back to me just as i go

    That’s the rent I pay
    Like my brother say it
    Thats the rent I pay

    Rent I pay
    Like my brother say it
    The rent I pay

    I been losing sleep
    And I’m nodding
    Sleep that I wish that I know’d
    Mmmm and I lost all my tapes of back masking
    Peace just for asking
    Peace that I oughta be owed

    And that’s the rent I pay
    Like my brother say it
    Thats the rent I pay

    Rent I pay
    Like my brother say
    That’s the rent I pay

    Everybody knows just where you been going
    Everybody knows the faces you been showing
    And if that’s your answer no I aint no dancer
    And if that’s your answer no I aint no dancer

  2. “Inside Out” 5:02LYRICS
    Time’s gone inside out
    Time gets distorted when there’s intense gravity

    I don’t got time for holy rollers
    Though they may wash my feet
    And I won’t be their soldier

    There’s intense gravity in you
    I’m just your satellite
    Oooooohn I know that time’s gone inside out

    And now it’s only like I told you
    Though they may wash my feet
    They do not make me complete

    Break out of character for me
    Time keeps on going when
    We got nothing else to give
    We got nothing left to give
    Because our time’s gone inside out

    I don’t make time for holy rollers
    There’s only you I need
    They do not make me complete

  3. “Rainy Taxi” 3:58LYRICS
    You catch everything I never could
    You believed when I gave up for good
    And when you stand beside me I can tell I’m stronger than I’ve ever been
    But if you’re goin’ you know you don’t come back

    I came home last night I had no good news
    I came home last night I had no good news
    And you received me through the brightest flash of apocalyptic ruin
    And if you leave I’ll never sing another tune

    Put on your red shoes
    Sing to me lovergirl
    When you do my love
    I forget the world
    And if you say run
    I may run with you
    I got nothing else
    I got nowhere else

    As the sun goes fading in the west
    There’s an army east that’s rising still
    And when you stand beside me I feel something stronger than I ever could
    But if you leave you better run away for good
    Leave you better run away for good
    Leave you better run run run
    Leave you better run away for good

  4. “Do You” 3:33LYRICS
    I was on 45th, I was half out of a bag
    Yeah I knew that you saw me you laughed when I looked back
    I thought I’d given up
    Now I didn’t feel so bad
    And then a shot went through me
    And then I walked right back
    Do you wanna get understood
    Do you want one thing or are you looking for sainthood
    Do you run when it’s just getting good
    Do you
    Do you
    Do you
    Do you
    Someone get popsicles, someone do something about this heat
    Cause it’s late in October and tar’s still melting in the street
    You tiptoe for ages but lose yourself
    Flippin back pages, unbuckling belts
    Ah love that’s the way love comes
    Do you don’t you know that’s the way love comes
    Do you feel it black and blue
    Do you
    Do you
    Do you
    Do you
  5. “Knock Knock Knock” 4:39LYRICS
    All lines are read
    The film is done
    After hours is on and now they’ll make another one
    If you miss the meaning this time
    Here comes another one

    And if you clap your hands the man will fall
    Hold your breath
    He’ll shake himself to death
    And scenes get rearranged
    And words unsaid

    Every day I hear knock knock knock and it’s you
    Oh every day I hear knock knock knock
    Then I see you
    And you’re shaking
    And you’re breaking
    And you tell me I’m your only friend
    And it starts all over again

    You said that you were living in a buttoned up world
    Living in 1892
    There wasn’t nothing they could say to convince me
    To blame nobody but you

    When your hand is on the trigger and you know it’s gonna blow
    But you don’t give a damn
    Don’t care who’s gonna know
    You just want everyone to talk slow and give you consent.

    Every time I hear knock knock knock
    I know that it’s you
    Every day I hear knock knock knock
    And I see you
    And you’re shaking
    Oh you’re breaking
    So I put down my poison pen
    And it starts all over again
    And it starts all over again
    And it starts all over again

  6. “Outlier” 4:22LYRICS
    You were smart
    You played no part
    You just thought what you thought
    And I remember when you walked out of garden state
    You had taste you had taste
    You had no time to waste
    What happened to you kid?
    Yes and what’s happening now?
    On and on and on and on
    You never played us wrong or stayed too long
    What happened to you kid?
    Yes and what’s happening now?
  7. “They Want My Soul” 3:22LYRICS
    Let’s go get out in the street
    Somebody’s gotta
    Let’s get the stars to align for lambs of slaughter
    In the photograph
    Their eyes make a signal path
    And the feelin goes on and on and on and on and on
    And on and on and on
    Don’t it feel like friday night
    Cars are all lined up
    Let it go push you around
    What’s it ammount to
    Card sharks and street preachers want my soul
    Upsellers and palm readers want my soul
    Post-sermon socialites
    Park chanters in skin tites
    All they want’s my soul yeah they want my soul
    In the photograph
    Your eyes make a signal path
    And the feelin goes on and on and on and on and on
    And on and on and on
    Let’s go lose track of time
    Somebody’s gotta
    Let’s get the stars to align for lambs of slaughter
    Educated folk singers want my soul
    Jonathon Fisk still he wants my soul
    I got nothin I want to say to them
    They got nothing nothing I want
    All they want’s my soul
    Yes yes I know it
    They want my soul
    They want my soul
    Oh why

  10. “New York Kiss” 3:27LYRICS
    Yes i got shook up
    But that’s all good
    It don’t get to me none until i go back
    Now when i show up
    It’s gonna hit me good
    It’s gonna blow my mind just like the first time
    When you told me by the neon sign
    And then your new york kiss
    I knew your new york kiss
    Now it’s another place
    A place your memory owns
    I cut glass
    I look past
    And i know that it won’t get to me at all until i go there
    And then it hits me clear and sharp
    The streets are empty
    There’s no one around
    There’s a far off shout
    It’s a far off shout
    Just like it was when next day came up
    And i felt so tough from your new york kiss
    Mmmm your new york kiss
    And now it’s just another place
    Place your memory owns
    Another place that you own
    And it ain’t going back
    Caught up inside it again
    Caught up in the moment we got it right
    There ain’t a thing i miss
    Not like your new york kiss
    Not like your new york kiss
    Now it’s just another place
    A place your memory owns
    Right now i know no other time
    Right now i know no other place
    I say goodnight
