Track Name: Zoo Song
I met you at the zoo
you were in front of the bears
and the lions too
when you made fun of the monkeys
I already knew
I wanted to try some monkey business with you

I met you at the park
just strolling around
till the sky got dark
you were walking your dog
and feeding the ducks
and I thought to myself
that's one man i'd like to--
(no, no no no no)

I met you at the cafe
just sipping your latte
with nothing to say
when you looked up at me
from over your scone
I knew right away
that you wanted to take me home

I met you for the last time
walking out of my door
and slipping your hand from mine
you looked up at the sky
and down at your shoes
and I knew from then on
that I needed to sing the blues
Track Name: Lullaby
It's a fucking miracle that I'm alive today
You can thank the coward inside of me
they tested out new medication
with lethal side effects

The fantasy of living
rarely meets my expectations
and the dreams I have of dying
exceed all limitation

I can see the tragedy
in breathing through the night

I keep my body tired
so that there's less of a fight

The fantasy of living
rarely meets my expectations
and the dreams I have of dying
exceed all limitation

this was meant to be a lullaby
with a kiss I can sleep
through night...
Track Name: Accidental Joke
I don't even know
the truth about myself
and yet I help myself to
whatever I want, I think

that we
can't even
ascertain the way
we've gained the things
we've gained
and wouldn't you know it:
I've gone and told
another accidental joke,
I think.
Track Name: Constantly
I am constantly
introducing myself
to you
and then I run away

By the grace of our kind
and unmerciful God
we are here to stay

I've put a knife in the back
of a lover or two
I am a wild dog
anxious to dig for the bones in you
I've taken this train to the
end of the track and there's
nothing after that
It's plain to my hands
but my heart makes demands
so unreasonable

I am constantly
introducing myself
to you
and then I run away

We've erased all our gods
and thrown them away
still we kneel to pray

I've put a knife in the back
of a lover like you
I am a wild dog
anxious to dig for the bones in you
I've taken this train to the
end of the track and there's
nothing after that
It's plain to my hands
but my heart makes demands
so unreasonable

(unreasonable)

I am constantly
introducing myself to you
and then I run away
