Zoo Song 02:57
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

Lullaby 02:57
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...

Waterfalls 02:38

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.

Constantly 01:56
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 It seemed at the time like the only right thing to do 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
