These are my reasons The thorns in this season We laugh it off, laugh it off There in the water I think that I oughta Laugh it off, laugh it off... Going along on this high road I feel that every step is told And I am a part I am a part I feel quiet High and low High, high, and low Keep it together We're birds of a feather That fly, that fly Or skim across the water Or eat little things Off the ground These are my reasons The birds and the seasons We laugh it off, laugh it off

Thin Man 03:46
Thin Man If you show me your mind, can I read it? Will you look me in the eye once I've seen it? Shadows pass over your hollowed-out mouth as you're sleeping-- holding the lies you gave me and I have been keeping, catching the salt that falls from my eyes as I'm weeping Hope is the language I spoke to you when I belonged here beneath the cracks of the doors we couldn't fit under lying awake in our bed, I forgot what our names were You're a thin man, air child you're a thin man running wild you're a thin man running wild you're a thin man running wild I know where you are but I can't touch you when you are dreaming Your mind is the air and my body's the stone it is carving and the night is always so loud when it moves in around me You're a thin man, air child you're a thin man running wild you're a thin man running wild you're a thin man running wild you're a thin man running wild

All the leaves stripped from the trees leave bare arms waving Take off your clothes, feel the wind move through your bones No, this is not the hand this is not the hand that made you no, no, no You can spend your whole life searching, but you know you'll never know Take me down, take me down take me down to the river wanna wash my body, wash my body clean Here every day feels like an endless winter and even when the sun comes out, the cold remains I have two eyes, I have two eyes but I have no way to see you and these hands have felt your skin but you were younger then, but you were younger then Take me down, take me down take me down to the water wanna wash my body in the stream And no, these are not the hands these are not the hands that made you no, no, no You'll spend your whole life searching but you know you'll never know How will you ever know will you ever know will you ever know?

Fly Away 05:20
Fly Away go back to bed I am lonely I have been counting the shadows under your eyes I know this won't last and it's only a matter of time until the sun erases the night just lie there on your back with your eyes open just lie here in my bed while the streetlights pour into your eyes I feel so empty now that we've spoke I could choke on the silence between you and I love was a bird a wingless shadow stretched over the moon love is a bird that won't fly away why won't you fly away why won't you fly away fly away, fly away fly on, fly on go on, get up I am ready to take out the thorns you have planted under my skin they pull on my body like slivers of light coming in through my window pane just lie there on your back with your eyes open just lie here in my bed while the streetlights pour into your eyes I feel so empty now that we've spoke I could choke on the silence between you and I love was a bird a wingless shadow stretched over the moon love is a bird that won't fly away why won't you fly away why won't you fly away fly away, fly away fly on, fly on (just lie there on your back with your eyes open just lie here in my bed while the streetlights pour into your eyes I feel so empty now that we've spoke I could choke on the silence between you and I) love is a bird that won't fly away why won't you fly away why won't you fly away fly away, fly away fly on, fly on fly on, fly on

Restless 03:59
This is the face I have made out of memory from all of the blackness that lives in my head I pick up my things from the floor when I wake up and I put them back in the evening again these are the visions I have when I'm sleeping the shuddering moon sitting up in the sky I'm not in the mood to bite every sorrow but if I can taste them, I'll certainly try I'm always waiting for night's walls to break up to peel back the covers that cover my mind you're always waiting for transmitter take-up I always feel like I'm lagging behind I'm always wanting to take off my jacket to feel the explosion of stars in my eyes the memory of repetitive motion that plays like a symphony over my thighs and where you live is where you'll be buried and when you dream that's where you're born and the moon never hangs in both skies on the same night still I can hear in your voice that where you're living is where you'll be buried and when you're dreaming that's where you're born and the moon never hangs in both skies on the same night still I can hear in your voice still I can hear in your voice
