Track Name: Intro
I would like to speak about my childhood
Track Name: Quiet, Colossus
Quiet big brother, that's enough from you
Pulled a nest from your ear
Little egg, little tomb
I'll fight you tooth and nail
Jump on your back and take you down
We used to fight for real
But then they sure never would found
What keeps you up at night
What keeps you stomping round and round
What keeps you out of sight
When you're the oldest kid around

Quiet big brother
We're all tired of you
Pulled a nest from your ear
Now you carry a tune
The one you took from us
The one you took from everyone
The way you get undressed
The giant knot you made undone
And if this is for real
And if this is for everyone
Then I won't make appeal
Just bolt the door and get the gun
Track Name: Canada
Blue house
Red sea
Erase it
Why well because see
(one) I know it's
(two) been a while but
(three) this place is different now
We're further down the Nile
You got it, you got it bad now, but
You'll get it, you'll get it good somehow
Track Name: Bruise
Your painted face tells a story
Your leather life is so boring
to me
So I can float on beer, rise up on to my chin
There is no shame no wait no bruise in drowning
So I can float on beer, rise up on to my chin
There is no shame no wait no bruise in drowning
It must seem like my sails are flapping in the wind when
I said that I meant that the end begins when
Not being stupid isn't enough
To hold off your eyes pillow voice soft hand touch
I'm sorry for all of the shit that I have done
Everything I said wasn't because I was drunk
Off the smell, off the sound, off the curve of a year
Broken, convincing, it crawled in my ear
Cut up in three like the hungriest ghosts
Whose parents were day time late night talk show hosts
Track Name: Amma
