Track Name: Saw It Up (PT. 1&2)
Saw it up on the wall
Read it (reddit?)
Let it stay through the fall
Let it (let it)
I am here to recall all of it right now
I am here to recall x2

(Upon return from a) prowl
Pet it (petted?)
Then it gave me a growl
Fed it (fêted?)
I am here to recall all of it right now
I am here to recall x2

Here to hear what I hear through
From there to here
To here from there

Someone threw me a ball
I did get it
And I took and take all
the credit (credit)

Here too hear what I hear threw
From there to hear too
Hear from there

Outta my way
See something say something
I remember that
Vanishing neighbors
Pestilent vapors
I remember that

Prattling Babbling
Tales of the battle I dreamed
But never had
Was bad
It doesn't work like that.
Track Name: Dawn Of The Living Dead
Song 06 Dawn of the Living Dead

Dawn of the Living Dead
Every light inside the house was out
I dreamed of Kung Fu grip
The creatures slowly moved about
The truck outside looked Invitational
I knew I would have to go away

The mailbox on the ground
Six weeks after Independence Day
Beside it Alvah Roebuck’s
Catalog of soft nonfiction lay
Wishbook page 425
I circled what I wished get someday away
Now it's the 21st and
Everyone wants their country back
And my new friends have found a
Magic spell to shield us from attack
They would find me somewhere safe to sleep
I know I'll probably stay away
Track Name: They've Opened Up The Closed-Up Shop
Song 07 They’ve Opened Up (The Closed-Up Shop)

They've opened up the closed up shop
Cross the street from Mom and Pop

It sells magic spells
Cuz that's what everyone wants

Since 1903 or 4
It's been a dozen stores or more

Now it sells magic spells
Cuz it’s what everyone wants
That’s what everyone wants

There were tears when it was shuttered
Just look at it now
There's a line around the corner

The venerable Ephemera Snowe
Had an office there I know

Now it sells magic spells
Cuz that's what everyone wants

Then it became The Pager Crate
In 1998
Now it sells magic spells
Cuz that's what everyone wants
Track Name: Say Today Is Your Birthday
Say today is your birthday, the happiest day to you
Say, today is your birthday - the happiest day to you
Make the cake.
Eat the cake.
Take a break.
Rest.
Track Name: I've Mismanaged Things
I’ve mismanaged things
I have damaged things
Yet am I I am glad that I
Never married my longtime
Girlfriend’s daughter

I am one who tries
To not give advice
But I must advise, for I think it wise
Never marry your longtime
Girlfriend’s daughter

It isn’t very hard to do
No, it’s not very hard to do
You, yes you, you can do it too
It’s true
Track Name: Everyone Thinks
Everyone thinks the collection of things they believe is their life - what a thought.

No, they're dreaming the life they would live if they didn't not.

Climb up tree top
Up where the trees stop
Now is tomorrow's yesterday

Look up my friend
See where the stars end
Now is tomorrow's yesterday

The sun's heading west let it
You need some rest get it
Should you hear some soft breathing
Stop everything

Why does snow snow?
How high does sky go?
Now is tomorrow's yesterday

It's heading west let it
You need some rest get it
Should you hear some soft breathing
Stop everything

When does dew drop?
Where does the sea stop?
We'll see tomorrow or the day
After tomorrow's yesterday
Track Name: Clarity Contrôle Constancy and Patience
Song 16 Clarity Contrôle Constancy and Patience

Clarity Contrôle Constancy and Patience
Lived across the hall from 98 to 02
Now you barely know them
And they barely know you it's strange

Constancy Controle Clarity & Patience
Saw it on the wall
They moved away somewhere new
Now you barely know them
And they barely know you it's strange

OK
It's alright
You might
Meet again someday now
It's ok
It's alright
You might

Was it three or four?
Were they foreign agents?

One September 1st
Dying in bed of thirst
You woke up to complain

Through the open door
You saw the naked floor
The window wet with rain

Were there three or four?
Were they foreign agents?
It's not clear anymore
They closed up shop
In ‘002

You barely knew them
They barely knew you it's strange

It will come down
When it comes down let it

Let it please fall on the trees
Fall on your knees if you must

Let It Go
Remember Deacon Snowe
And Ms. Quintessence O’Dust
