Track Name: Responsible
i heard you in the beer garden
someone was opening a gate
i pretended not to see you
i refused to negotiate
i refused to negotiate

you eventually approached me
like you’re liable to do
always busting up the limits
of the world i stick to
where i hope my relief is coming soon

who told you you were weak? that everything was collapsing on us?

i heard you in the beer garden
you were passing through a gate
i pretended not to see you
what a game-changing mistake
oh what a game-changing mistake

everyone was thinking
about the end of things
we were busy settling
into a nice pair of wings
i only spent five minutes in the ring

you are so responsible, you look so happy, you are bastion of hope

i remember once or twice
you gave me very strange advice
but usually it turned out right
i never saw that one coming
Track Name: The New Normal
you found a job like you said you would
you’re cleaning up, you say you’re cleaning up for good

we both know what freedom looks like
everybody knows that
anyone can tell you that

well they’ll say you’re gonna have to pay a debt down here
but i say don’t forget what you hold dear
they’ll say you’re gonna have to make it on your own
but i say, you don’t have to go alone
you never have to be alone

yesterday you were saying it’s funny how
what used to be so strange is normal now

and today you were crying like a lame dog
it feels like the rain if you feel it at all

you know me i’ll trust anyone
i thought everybody did that
anyone can tell you that
Track Name: He Said "You Seemed so Much in Luv"
he said "you seemed so much in love"
i guess we were

and then i noticed the hum
of the high tension line transformer

we were never gonna stand a chance
there’s nothing new about that
we were never gonna stand a chance
i thought you knew about that

you said "I forget what I’m doing here"
but you still move at the same speed

you might like to be an engineer
to set things up as you please

we were never gonna stand a chance
there’s nothing new about that
we were never gonna stand a chance
i thought you knew about that
how could you ever have known that?
Track Name: Goneis
i was hoping for the best
aiming to coalesce
the feelings i had left
about politics
you were spending another night
taking your sweet time
at the end of the rite aid
parking lot

i was hoping for the best
anybody can attest
to the persuasiveness
of your politics
our son is so young
and he hates to sleep
its so hard to keep
from derailing

i don’t mean to put the pressure on
no i would hate to put the pressure on
but gone, gone is gone

i was hoping for the best
aiming to coalesce
the feelings i had left
about security
you were trying to adjust
but you were getting crushed
quicker than the dust
you were treading on

i was hoping for the best
anybody can attest
to the confidence
of security
when i’m watching the sun set
you will already have seen it
i don’t need to be convinced
by your universe
Track Name: When You Put it That Way
operation desert shield, operation i thought we had a deal
operation shining star, operation you don’t know how right you are
operation reinvest, operation always do your best
operation clear to land, operation some things i will never understand
operation feeling blue, operation i’ll do me and you do you
operation freedom train, operation please don’t say what i think you’re going to

looks like the place is quieting down
i need you more than ever now
as if there were other ways to get the news
i was looking forward to giving up with you

operation feeling blue, operation do you love me too?
operation marx and engels, operation how the hell is he still single
operation burning bright, operation if we get any sleep tonight
operation make you shine, operation i always seem to lag behind
operation storm the beachhead, operation maybe it’s better if we stay in bed
operation freedom train, operation please don’t say what i think you’re going to

looks like the place is quieting down
i need you more than ever now
as if there were other ways to fight the blues
i was looking forward to giving up with you

operation feeling blue, operation texting you
operation time to sell, operation i swear i didn’t hear the bell
operation prairie wind, operation looks like the prospects are getting dim
operation collonade, operation allocate your aid
operation feeling blue, operation i hate to argue with you
operation walk with god, operation i need to know what side you’re on

looks like the place is quieting down
i need you more than ever now
as if they were ever going to quit
i was looking forward to getting over it

when you put it that way
when you put it that way
when you put it that way
what can i say
what can i say
what can i say
what can i say
Track Name: Quick to Argue
every love wants a justification
she repeated to herself, and took the onramp uptown
twenty minutes or so to the new boy’s place
check the mirrors to be sure it doesn’t show in her face
she took a sip of the coffee to help swallow the pill
seems like the radio towers are standing extra still
now the cigarette ash takes a minute to flake
she’s feeling alone, and she’s starting to shake

figure out a way to say just what you mean
communicate your frustration with this scene
you’re quick to argue but you never do agree

everything goes in one of these boxes
he handed me a box and started opening drawers
you know this is the first time I’ve ever been here he said
he kind of laughed and looked at the underwear on the bed
I said “christ, I can’t imagine, is there anything you need?”
he crumpled his hands, I guess he wanted to leave
what chance in the world, she always knew how to break
from the door I heard her say “honey, for christ’s sake”

every traffic advisory was updated
the firemen came wearing bright yellow stripes
every window seemed to get a little bit darker
until they ripped off the doors and she was flooded with light
Track Name: You're a Natural
don’t do anything for me
don’t do anything for others
don’t do anything for yourself either

what did you used to say
what did you used to say
you could say just about anything

the longer that i live
the less you can forgive me
the longer that i live
the easier it’ll be

don’t do anything for me
don’t do anything for others
don’t do anything for yourself either

if the breeze picks up today
i will ride it away from you

if the breeze picks up today
i will ride it away from you
Track Name: Stick to the Plan
the evening’s lovely
my driveway’s muddy
you might even love me
you might say “yes, I understand"
where were you before
you ended up on my floor?
what are you up for?
you seem to have a plan

was there a plan
that brought you here to me?
stick to the plan at every opportunity

the only song that I know
goes honey, I love you so
in the dewey meadow
you can’t say I didn’t try
I try to plot the courses
of a confluence of forces
and while I’ve got my sources
it’s a hopeless horse to ride

was there a plan
that brought you here to me?
stick to the plan at every opportunity

would you return
to spend a little time with me
I would return given the opportunity
Track Name: I Already Paid
lady of my heart
does my love figure
among your assets?
invest in me if you must invest in something

make me down
make me a pallet
on your side of the bed
believe in us if you can believe anything

loosen up
you have yours
you have your life and then you use it

wake up america
Track Name: EL
she was sleeping on my couch today
had myself believing that there she would stay
i heard the sparrow bow its head
straight through the willow, straight to the bed

even when a person is in love, she can usually return
to her sense and observe from a distance her concern
but there is something in you making it impossible for me
to leave you and look around

i’ve got nothing
i’ve got nothing
i’ve got nothing
but love for you
Track Name: I'm Serious
daylight has come to the apartment
what i once knew i can hardly recall
daylight has come and your heart is hardened
if i can’t have you i want no one at all

i’m serious, be safe on your way home
take it easy, you face your hardest times alone
and if you need me, you got me

if you plan to go on the D train
keep an eye on the fare that you spend
and if you plan to go on the F train
know that it always comes back again

and if you’d come by tomorrow
who knows, you might have stuck around
but tonight it’s only sorrow
that you had to come by now
