Track Name: Someone Else
I've been thinking of someone else
with purple nails and hair that smells
and eyes that look like they see the light of day

I must confess it brings me to my knees
with little smiles and "baby please"
many miles beneath the town for me

With your head gone I'm free to roam and see the lady

I've been thinking of someone new
with leather boots and tattoos too
many miles beneath the town for this

Maybe I'll let you hide for awhile
in the corners and the crowded stalls
many miles beneath the town for me

With your head gone I'm free to roam and see the lady

With your head gone I'm free to roam and see the lady
Track Name: Battering Ram
see the man with the dirty hat
swallowed a forest branch by branch
ten thousand splinters and his bleeding hands
ten thousand splinters and a bleeding man

been around on a miracle mile
been searching faces for your lovely smile
come on, baby, get your gettin bag
come on, baby, join the battering ram

its got ten fingers and no backup plan
buried its heart in the stretchy ground
ten thousand splinters and a bleeding man
ten thousand splinters and a battering ram

when the winter went away
and snow gave way to grasses
a shovel and a hole somewhere
a love that is elastic

don't wanna live in a neighborhood
just wanna live in a jungle
we're gonna build a battering ram
we're gonna need a helping hand

its got ten fingers and no backup plan
buried its heart in the stretchy ground
ten thousand splinters and a bleeding man
ten thousand splinters and a battering ram

saw the man with the wooden leg
sitting next to a fire
ten thousand splinters scattered round the camp
ten thousand splinters and a battering ram

its got ten fingers and no backup plan
buried its heart in the stretchy ground
ten thousand splinters and a bleeding man
ten thousand splinters and a battering ram
ten thousand splinters and a battering ram
ten thousand splinters and a battering ram
Track Name: When I Want To
i go to sleep everyday
go to sleep on a pile of hay
go to sleep when i want to
i go down to the hills
i go down and take a lot of pills
say, i go down when i want to

i fall in love with these foreign girls
fall in love with their lace and curls
i fall in love when i want to
make my home in the streets
dine on trashcan delicacies
and fall in love when i want to

and it never fails, this heart of mine
to slowly unwind
and make itself turn blue

i fall in love with these foreign girls
fall in love with their lace and curls
i fall in love when i want to
make my home in the streets
dine on trashcan delicacies
and fall in love when i want to

and it never fails, this heart of mine
to slowly unwind
and make itself turn blue

you are what you are when you're walking
you are, you are
you are what you are when you're walking
you are, you are, you are

you are, you are
you are what you are when you're walking
you are, you are,
you are what you are when you're walking
you are, you are, you are!
Track Name: Chime
it's not that it's gone away
it's just that it's here, i can tell by the sound
the tiniest waves make
when they pull in, when they crash on the ground
it's not that you've gone away
i can still hear you, babe
calling from distant shores
you only live once, then you come back for more

this may not go over well
but i really care, wanna help if i can
you say you're in love again
again and again and again
it's not only underground
all over the city now
i see it in subway steam
oh, i wanna wake in a world where it's green!

you keep falling down, anyway you want to
you keep falling down, anyway you want to

praying to satellites
and this is the ground beneath your feet
back from the other side
and you're chiming from within
it's not that it's gone away
it's in the bouquets, it's in the leaves
whispering in the dark
somebody saying something to me

you keep falling down, anyway you want to
you keep falling down, i can pick you up again

if you're looking for the love i'm after
it's in her eyes
if you're looking for the love i'm after
improvise
if you're looking for the love i'm after
it's in her eyes
they're made of wood and they sound like laughter
improvise
improvise
Track Name: Surf Mountain
i've been scratching at the stratosphere
living fables of the oldest fears
always watching from the top of this
always watching from the top of this, ancient mountain

loving deeply and understood
or, understanding
growing growing in an empty sky
growing growing
breathing in the sky

loving deeply and understood
or, understanding
growing growing in an endless sky
growing growing
breathing in the sky
i'll try just a little bit harder
i'll try just a little bit harder

i've been living for a thousand years
i've been living for a thousand years

loving deeply and understood
or, understanding
growing growing in an endless sky
growing growing
loving deeply and understood
or, understanding
growing growing in an endless sky
growing growing in an endless sky

you've been dreaming for a thousand years
you've been dreaming for a thousand years
i've been living for a thousand years
i've been living for a thousand years
