Track Name: Old room
the woods that surround
our one family town
run deep and through
the country ground
everything is quiet
apart from a muffled call in another room

we are all just pilots that rise and fall
into a family tomb

Call but consume
I wander my old room
I've come to consume
and wander my old room
because there's nothing to do
when the sun replaces
the moon
Track Name: When the king comes around
I hear the king is coming
just to weigh in
on his house full of servents
with his shit-eating grin

I hear the king is coming
he isn't bringing any bags
his closets are all full
and he's as High as his flag

leave the engine running
or pull around the chariot
you know he likes to run
even under the mid-day sun

oh id like to catch my breath
the world is you chateau
you know he likes to run
even with nowhere to go

I wish I could catch my breath
when the king comes around
all I want to do is please
my family and the crown

I wish I could catch my breath
when the king comes around
all I want to do is please
my family and the crown

I don't have many needs
I want someplace quiet
All I want to do is please
my family and the pilot
Track Name: Motorcycle kid
motorcycle kid
motorcycle kid
making your laps while I sit here wondering
if I should have come back

It's so strange to blend into a home
like we've lived here all our lives
it's so strange to bend and break
like the way I feel is some surprise
We're coming through to colonize
or as a house to apologize
or smother a past with modern lies
like the way I feel is some surprise

motorcycle kid goes by
through the pines outside
maybe he'd like to come inside

etc...
