Track Name: Lemoncholic
Is bunker kissers what we are?
Through cinder blocks
We wander hand in hand
Apocalyptic wonderland

With our best dresses and blue suits
We stroll through stripmalls
With our cash in hand
It's our atomic motherland

Hide from enemies invisible
From threats and ends that are unthinkable
That never happen and they never will
Are we all Lemoncholic?

Marvel at the pointlessness
Of secrects kept and now reclassified
It probably wasn't worth the time

Cement romantics in concrete
The fears we held have spilled out nationwide
Across the continent's divide
Track Name: Lauren, I Said
“Lauren,” I said,
“I hope that you have it inside you
To take this
To take it to the natural end.”
“Oh, Lauren,” I said,
“I hope that you know how to do this
To bring us, to bring us to the natural end.”

“It might be hard
But I saw your face
And I know you’re right.”
“Oh, Lauren,” I said.

“Lauren,” I said
“You only have one heart inside you
To keep you, to keep you from an unnatural end.”

My doe, you hover on the edge
Like someone afraid of getting caught
Or pausing unsure if the red light is coming
I know that you are right

Lauren, I hope you are sure.
Track Name: Peacock
Aeroplane, a silver membrane
Cutting slate gray skies
Submarine, a silver membrane
Diving straight, diving straight

I can’t dive, I can’t fly
I cannot follow
I must trudge on my own
I cannot borrow from tomorrow

Thinnest membrane
Hollow cell frame
Piercing, breaking
Surface tension

And I said, I said,
“Please don’t leave me alone”
And you said, you said,
You wouldn’t go very far

You’ll forget about me
And I will be so lonely
Whichever way you depart
Far away is too far
