Track Name: Maryanne
Maryanne

It took you five years to invent it
You saved it all up and then you spent it
What a damn fine way to live it
Make up a crime then don't forgive it

It wasn't what you're thinking of
You could hate a bird for being free
And I'm sorry that it all went sour
Rotten apples on a rotten tree

It wasn't what you're thinking of
You could hate a bird for being free
And I'm sorry that it all went sour
Rotten apples on a rotten tree

Now I gotta remember to pretend that it's fine
Meticulous cleaning of the scene of a crime
That never occurred time after time
Maryanne

You had a hard time and I know that
On the other hand fucking so what
There's a bullet with my name on
You can shoot as you put the blame on

It was never what you said it was
You could make a story from thin air
And I'm sorry that it's disappointing
Every little thing in your head

It was never what you said it was
You could make a story from thin air
And I'm sorry that it's disappointing
Every little thing everywhere

Now I gotta remember to pretend that it's fine
Meticulous cleaning of the scene of a crime
That never occurred time after time
Maryanne

Never had a reason
Never had a reason to be here

Never had a ticket
Never had a ticket out of here
Track Name: White Noise
White Noise

This is the shallow century
Here in the land of plenty
These are the transient ages
Written on melting pages

This is the voice of no-one
Pixels and information
Echoes of signs of traces
Of one of a billion faces

I'd like to see you
But I can't see you
I'd like to feel you
But I can't feel you
Any more
I'd like to touch you
But I can't touch you
I'd like to hear you
But I can't hear you for the
White noise

This is the end of reason
Here in the hollow season
Packets of cold electrons
Mimic an old time love song

I'd like to see you
But I can't see you
I'd like to feel you
But I can't feel you
Any more
I'd like to touch you
But I can't touch you
I'd like to hear you
But I can't hear you for the
White noise
Track Name: Poor Richard
Poor Richard

Long time now
I don't sleep
What I found
I couldn't keep

But I'm doing good
I'm doing fine
Things will change
Down the line

Everything falls away
Everyone falls apart
Who is the one can say
What's hidden within the heart
But if I could see you now
If I could see you now

Long time now
I don't cry
I don't sleep
I know why

But I'm doing good
I'm doing fine
Things will change
Down the line

Everything falls away
Everyone falls apart
Who is the one can say
What's written upon the heart
But if I could see you now
If I could see you now
