Track Name: Whatever Happens, Happens
Despite your best intentions
whatever happens, happens
Twisted my intestines
whatever happens, happens
I'm sick of roads, paved in gold
that won't get you to heaven

Maybe you're intangible
whatever happens, happens
It may be insubstantial
whatever happens, happens
When the windows rattle
won't you feel supernatural?

Pull a sheet over my head
suddenly an empty bed
can shake my faith
but rapture is a wraith
and you're not dead yet

Put my hands on you
whatever happens, happens
Hope I don't fall through
whatever happens, happens
You don't mind a scare
but the terror made you cruel

Pull a sheet over my head
suddenly an empty bed
can shake my faith
but rapture is a wraith
and you're not dead yet
Track Name: 2 Haunt 4 U
I am a haunted house
you are the tiny mouse
that wanders through my walls

Hear you echo echo echo
through my halls

Do you really want to be here at all?

Who's haunting who?
Who's haunting who?

(2 haunt 4 you
2 haunt 4 you)

You are a haunted house
I am the tiny mouse
that wanders through your walls

Hear me echo echo echo
through your halls

Do I really want to be here at all?

Who's haunting who?
Who's haunting who?
Track Name: Davey
Davey
won't you come and save me
won't you come and take me away
on the night you couldn't stay

I feel like a phantom
I feel like the problem
something must be following me
following me, following me

Davey
oh, it doesn't phase me
oh, it doesn't change all the ways
that I tried to escape

I feel like a phantom
I feel like the problem
something must be following me
following me, following me

I told you I love you so things would get better
told you I love you, so things'll get better, right?
right?
Track Name: Slow Roots
Oh, I'm taking my time
your doorbell chimes
I'm glued to the floor

Oh, I'm nervous and cautious
I stick to my watches
I'm a calculator

I may never have faced you
but you're delicate and graceful
my elbows are sure

From here I see hints of your roots
a reemerging truth
you earned those silver hairs from all those books

I'm weepwalking 'cause you're sleep talking again, again
I have memorized the tops of your hands, and the top of your head, oh

I wanna go home
to the home in your heart
but I'm one floor up
and your apartment's dark
I watched you through a hole in the carpet
but telescopes can't harvest a garden
I've got slow roots growin' in your stardust
I've got slow roots growin' in your stardust

I'm weepwalking 'cause you're sleep talking again, again
I have memorized the tops of your hands, and the top of your head, oh

I wanna go home
to the home in your heart
but I'm one floor up
and your apartment's dark
I watched you through a hole in the carpet
but telescopes can't harvest a garden
I've got slow roots growin' in your stardust
I've got slow roots growin' in your stardust
Track Name: UFO DUI
Objects in the mirror begin to look a little weird
and objects in the sky, they look closer, closer
He asks: "Have you had a drink or two tonight?”
I look him in the eyes and I say: “no sir, no sir.”

I promise I'm a good good girl, a good good girl
I'm just trying to get home
I promise I'm a good good girl, a good good girl
I'm just trying to find home

Objects in the mirror begin to look a little blurry
I promise I can fake it, I mean maybe, maybe
But if the stars align I'll be in your arms tonight
the sky will bring me back to my baby, my baby

I promise I'm a good good girl, a good good girl
I'm just trying to get home
I promise I'm a good good girl, a good good girl
I'm just trying to find home
Track Name: Slightly Unsightly
When I was a boy, they said,
“son, you've got some moxie
so use the skills that you have.”
but I never won a trophy
at least not in a long while

Kiss me in the dark, at the bar
we collided in the bathroom
your friends were looking for you
you left in a hurry
was it me or was it you?

I like when people tell me secrets
it makes me feel important
but no one tells me secrets anymore

You've got thick lenses in your glasses
please just leave them off
'cause I'm slightly unsightly, you see

Those summer days, you felt me, oh you really felt me
Please dear don't take off
just 'cause I'm slightly unsightly, you see

look away
look away
look away
(look away)
Track Name: Domestic Sounds
I don't want to go home
can I curl up outside of your window?

I wanna bask in your television glow
darlin', I don't need anything
I never felt like I belonged
I've grown to 24 years long
I feel like every right just makes a wrong, makes a wrong

Can I listen to the sound of clinking cutlery?
'cause it's the sound, it's the sound of domesticity
I'm on the outside looking in at all this normalcy
and darlin', I don't know where to go

I never felt like I belonged
I've grown to 24 years long
I feel like every right just makes a wrong, makes a wrong
I'm counting down the days until I -
I'm counting down the days until I -
I'm counting down the days until I -
Track Name: Atrophy and Failure
So show some restraint
I'll be your patron saint
I was shaken awake
by the ghost of a lover

With a tattoo of a question mark
I don't know where to start

Werewolf girl you're baring fangs
you never knew you had

So show some restraint
everyone makes mistakes
Nurses said they'd try to make
you comfortable as they could

I don't want to string you along
but maybe Davey was wrong

Werewolf girl you're baring fangs
you never knew you had

When the full moon comes
we'll be ourselves again
When the full moon comes
we'll shed our rented skin
Track Name: Laughing In Her Sleep
I would take a thousand ceiling leaks
if it means I can share
a roof with you
We'll buy a bucket or two

Every place I've lived is messed up
but I guess it's fitting
'cause I'm messed up too
I've got leaks in my head too

She could sweep the cobwebs with her eyelashes
some nights I even dream of this
I wonder if she dreams about this too
As she's laughing in her sleep
you're laughing in your sleep
and I'm home with you

We spend our nights wrapped up
in ill-fitting stripes
the sheets you outgrew
You want something new

You run hot and I run cold
but these shitty blankets are
rather conducive to
a temperate snooze

She could sweep the cobwebs with her eyelashes
some nights I even dream of this
I wonder if she dreams about this too
As she's laughing in her sleep
you're laughing in your sleep
and I'm home with you
