Track Name: If We Were Fish
If I were a fish,
and you were a fish,
I would swim to your school everyday.

Maybe I'd take you
out for a dip
in the air above the bay.

Would you love me the same,
or would you be ashamed
to be so in love with a fish?

Would you still sing me songs,
or would you think it wrong
to be so intimate with a fish?

If I were a fish,
and you were a fish,
I would fish-kiss you on your fish-lips.

I would lead you away
from the hooks and the bait
that those humans try to catch us fish with.

Would you splash me with your tail?
Would you rub your fins along my scales,
or would you think it was weird that I was a fish?

Would you believe me if I told
you that you're so beautiful,
or would you be disgusted with yourself as a fish?

If I were a fish,
and you were a fish,
I would make you a bed to lay your fish-head.

I would sing you
lullabies and bring you
anything you wished.
Track Name: I Feel You, Ophelia
Succession
How am I supposed to hope to take your place
Depression
From where will I draw strength if not your face
I never did a thing to hurt you
I never compromised your virtue
I never did a thing to soil your grace
Drops of water on the front of her dress
Sticky fingers and her hair was a mess
Do you miss the old days

Reaction
Everybody's got an appointment for an interview
Attraction
Hotel rooms overflow with opportunists and their camera crews
The sheriff is in disbelief
His lips are trembling with grief
I look at him and think yeah, what else is new
She kissed me slowly on the branch of a tree
I think we stood on thin air briefly
Do you miss the old days

How could you go
How could you not know I love you so

Evasion
The way your lover turns away when he knows you're coming
Abrasion
The injuries sustained after another hard night's nothing
He used to be so easy street
He used to make your soul complete
But that shadow always comes back running
Rocking sweet, waving in the breeze like fire
She is everyone alive's desire
And in a sick way, I wonder was she right
Her blood and wine were drained to dregs the next night
Oh god
I miss the old days
God, I miss the old days
Don't you miss the old days
How couldn't you miss the old days

How could you go
How could you not know I love you so
How could you go
How could you not know I love you
Track Name: Chuck the Duck
I bought a duck today
I named him Chuck the duck
I showed my friend the duck
And he said what the heck

I ate a cherry pit
And thought no more of it
But it made my stomach sick
I had to take a Gas-Ex

Words are so much fun
I'd like to teach you some
So you will not sound dumb
When you talk to sluts
Track Name: Cross-Eyed Bear
You walked by
With your new boy
I never was your boy
You waved hi
I thought, oh god
Are we gonna do that thing
You introduced us to each other
And I couldn't help but wonder
What have you told him about me
What have you not told me about him
And what have I not told you about you
And what you taken the liberty to fill in
With observation and intuition
And what do you look like when you kiss him
And what do you feel when you have sex
And why did you not seem to think
I was capable of those things

I shook hands
With your new boy
He's not really that new
I said it's
Nice to meet you
It wasn't really nice
And then you shook hands with me
I don't think we've ever done that before
And we both knew that, so you hugged me
But I didn't want to seem the way that we were
And then he hugged me
I don't like him
I think he was a shallow choice for you
And I'm very good at judging people
Based on thirty seconds of interaction

Can you please return the book to the library
You checked out the only copy
And the online catalog tells me
That it's a fucking month overdue
What is wrong with you
Did you never think, hey maybe
Someone else would like to read this play
And have you never heard of late fees
What are you made of money
Also, why don't you love me
Track Name: I'm in Love
If you can hear me
Get near me so I'll see you clearly
I hold you so dearly and really
You're all that I see and I seek and believe
And I need you and plead you to be here with me
'Cause you see, when I'm sleeping
I'm dreaming of feeling you breathing
And our skin is touching so much
And the brushing is such a new rush in my mind
In my head, in your bed, where I said that I'm in love

Lying, relaxing, and acting all passionate
Smiling and basking in absolute happiness
Pure satisfaction and rabid attraction
And you'll always have me no matter what happens
From here ever after, through tears and through laughter
To you I will answer, and we'll build a ladder
That stretches to heaven, and then when we climb it
We'll sway, and we'll play, and I'll say that I'm in love

If you have felt me
Then help me and tell me
I still overwhelm you and get you to melt
You have made me so crazy
I'm craving your brainwaves
With all the vehemence and credence of secrecy
This is the history of the whole world
And of boys and girls, to be loved in return
And to make perfect circles with surefire timing
You're winking, I'm sinking, I'm thinking I'm in love
Track Name: Jeero
I have learned that beauty
Lies with the beholder
And I don't see what you see
So I'm starting over

And though I'll live without you
You'll never go away
I will think about you
Every single day

And when I'm old and dusty
On a collector's shelf
I will remember, trust me
Exactly how it felt

To have a world berate you
And agree that you're ugly
But I will never hate you
The way you hated me
