Track Name: I Wanna Hold You
I wanna hold you like the mountaintop is held by the horizon

I wanna hold you like the light that brings the horizon
back into my eyes

I wanna hold you like the sweetest note just before it ends

I wanna hold you like my mother's hand
when she's too upset to cry

I wanna hold you like my father's hand
when I thought that he was gonna die
I wanna hold you like the sweet summer's breeze
it passes through me


please pass through me

I wanna hold you like G-d held my heart when I was a child

I wanna hold you like running naked through the church
that I built outside
I wanna hold you like the breath that passes
through my lungs

it passes through my heart
Track Name: Restaurant at the End of the Universe
when I worked at Greenpeace I was savin' whales
by gettin' debit cards, collecting debit cards

and people would ask me
"What did whales ever do for me?"

and I would tell them
that Greenpeace told me
that there are only 400 blue whales left
on the planet, in the ocean
which at this point is just acid


and a single blue whale will eat about four tons
of krill in one day, four tons!

and krill eat
algae

which produces oxygen that we breathe
it's not just trees
in fact, it's mostly phytoplankton

 so
the algae is eaten by krill
which is eaten by blue wales

so if we kill all the whales...


I guess we're gonna suffocate

we're all just gonna suffocate

so I quit that job cause it was too heavy

and I quit that job and I got a new job

now I'm just serving tacos in a restaurant
at the end of the universe

ha ha ha ha

qua qua qua qua



if I was an orangutan in Indonesia, in Indonesia

I'd be getting burned alive in my rainforest home
burned alive, that 's right
to make room for
new trees
to make pulp for
paper

to wrap hamburgers in fine fast food establishments
all over the world



and the cows that they kill to make hamburgers
and the cows that they kill, and the cows that they kill

are grazed on destroyed rain forests
on the other side of the world



so I guess we'll all just suffocate
we're all just gonna suffocate

so I quit that job cause it was too heavy

and I quit that job and I got a new job

now I'm just serving tacos in a restaurant
at the end of the universe

ha ha ha ha

qua qua qua qua



and the only time people would talk to me
is when I said
"Hey you wanna save some butterflies?"

everybody loves the butterflies



so I quit that job cause it was too heavy

and I quit that job and I got a new job

but you can't run away from knowing
that the oceans are poisoned
and the oceans are acid

and you can't run away from knowing
that 80% of the world's old growth forests are already gone 


so I guess we'll suffocate
we're all just gonna suffocate

ha ha ha ha

qua qua qua qua


Track Name: My Mixtape
remember the time when you drove all night
and I said "you stink you should probably take a shower"

remember the time when you drove all night
just like Elvis Costello on...

my mixtape it was
the only tape it was
the only music I had for months
when I was in-between homes and
in-between jobs and
in-between lives

you bookended it between your keds
and 
the cement that my father laid down
but those broken shards won't heal
the dark crystal of my heart


no no no 



remember the time when we cried all night

and broke down and broke up again


remember the time when we both got sober
and then un-sober
and blamed each other
I do well





my mixtape it was
the only tape it was
the only music I had for months
when I was in-between homes and
in-between jobs and
in-between lives

you bookended it between your keds
and 
the cement that my father laid down
but the joke's on you girl
I got the whole thing memorized



I am a giraffe
my head is in the air but
my feet are on, my feet are on, my feet are
on the ground

you are a lion with all that pride
the way you tried to
tear me to, rip me to
oh
 I am a giraffe
my head is in the air but
my feet are on, my feet are on, my feet are
on the ground

you are a lion with all that pride
the way you tried to rip me to shreds





my mixtape it was
the only tape 
it was
the only music I had for like six months

when I was broke
when I was unemployed
sleeping on couches and
the hungriest I have been in my life

you took it outside
you put it on the ground
and you smashed it on the cement that my father laid down

and you picked up the pieces and
you cupped them in your hands and you said
"this is what a broken heart feels like"
as if I didn't already know.

and lose my heart in the burning sands

now I wanna be your dog

so messed up I want you here
in my room I want you here

Track Name: Take Your Time
take your time

cause it's all you got to take
take your time

take your time
cause it's all you got to take
take your time


cause
either way, oh either way
either way, oh either way
either way
it's gonna take away from you

either way
it's gonna tock away from you

it's gonna talk direct to you



if you don't have the time
to do it right the first
you don't have the time to
c'mon do it right
you don't have the time
to do it right the first
if you don't have the time, time

when will you do it over,
 do it over again?
when will you do it over again, and do it right?

Track Name: For You
hey
don'tcha know
that I had fun at your show
 and I
really like your art and I'm glad you like mine

so I made this art for you, don't you know

that I think that you're just grand and 
if you
tried to hold my hand

I would let you



and I would hold it back 

but I won't hold you back

and I would hold it back 

but I won't hold you back



if you held me, I would hold you back
if you held me, I would hold you back

but I won't hold you back



don't you know
that I think you're so cute
 and you're a
feminist to boot and 
I like that you
eat mostly vegetables and fruit

don't you know
that I think that you're just swell and when I
am with you the bell in me goes

ding, dong, ding, ding

suffering comes from desire

but I think I think this time it might be

worth my, worth my while

if you held me, I would hold you back
if you held me, I would hold you back

but I won't hold you back



and I really like your art
and I'm glad you like mine
so I made this art for you
