Track Name: Slightly Removed
I can read you through
Know when I look at you
In your solitude, you're removed
I will always have the sun
while it keeps warm
But will it light my way back to you?
And what will it prove?
Come give me another reason
You think you're here but you are slightly removed
You think it's clear but I'm done giving you clues
What you have taken belongs to us
I can read you through
You'll learn your lesson soon
And when I find my way back to you
You'll get that truth
I'll give you another reason
Track Name: Strike of the Mind
Yes, I'll be your victim
Sacrificial lamb
Yeah, I'll build the altar
to which you tie my hands down
I'll be your fuel for pity
Claim the damage done
Let me tell you what's more
You don't need to hold the gun
Take my life, don't take my mind
Don't speak to me of plans
Drown me in your pool of hearts
But don't you shake my hand
Track Name: Marjorie's Injury
Marjorie, my dear
When will they let you see?
Marjorie, my pea
You were allergic to that bee
Marjorie's injury (you rolled your window down)
Marjorie, my peach
Go on and dust your knees
Marjorie, your dreams
are black and white (or so they seem)
Go see Dr. Howard
He's in the room next door
Go talk to Dr. Stewart
He'll take your temperature
Track Name: Ribbon Man
Track Name: On and On (With You)
You say you don't believe me at all
Say that to me when you go
On and on we go
Say if it wasn't for me here
On and on it's gone
Save a space for me next to you
For all the light stemming from the sides of you
On and on, it's true
On and on with you
Why's that all we do?
I'm bound to fall in you
Track Name: Soma Holiday
Spent your last cash yesterday
You're packed, now you're going away
Another holiday for you
You got blacked out in your hotel
The walls put you under a spell
Another holiday for you
A soma holiday for you
So now you're feeling for a song
And your senses are all numb
Another holiday for you
A soma holiday for you
Track Name: Spur of the Summer (Reflection)
