Track Name: National Love and Other Tyrants
I’m not afraid with her on my mind
But one can be blinded with a love like mine
Might be hated in households or slandered in public
But I feel above it with a love like mine
You can shame a weaker man with little love
But you cannot faze someone who knows the meaning of it
I’m not afraid with her on my mind
But one can be blinded with a love like mine

It’s raging out, but inside it’s cozy
That angry mob knows it, you got a love like mine
I gave them the finger, but they want the skull
I push and they pull, and now it could be my time
Well you can shame a weaker man with little love
But you cannot faze someone who knows the meaning of it
I’m not afraid with her on my mind
But one can be blinded with a love like mine
Track Name: Lacy Disbelieving
I know she’s so often right

She said “Might not be real, so you can’t expect something
Why don’t we just pack it in
Waiting ‘round, a couple dummies
I’ve disbelieved and I will again

At moment’s shift it could all be clear
Not a giant Pisces tale
But I’m fine with never seeing clear
Till I’m buried in the shale

Cloudy expectations, well what do you want
It’s a fractured, mixed up world
And there’s not much to find comfort in
Except the fact, that I’m your girl”
Track Name: Slack Keys
Welcome young slacker, into the fold
Of next generationalists born lazy and cold
You’re our kind

No reason to focus or mark what you’re told
There will be no tests from this bunch and we don’t set goals
We’re just fine

Why do you seem so worried
After all, you know that we’ll be receiving when you call

We are ever so glad you joined the crew
And hoping you’re glad you joined us too
Been thinking of piling up some stones to build ourselves a home

No need for the voyage, we’re already there
And the pieces will fit if they’re meant to, but who really cares
You’re our kind

No problems to solve and no troubles to bear
Set down any issues you’ve brought, pull up a chair
We’re just fine
Track Name: Sly Dutch Youth Musics
It’s a rattling of sort
That makes the youth contort their bodies
The fevered masses searching for a star

When emotions are riled, the pulses getting wild and unruly
There’s nothing quite like blood on the guitar

Watch your mouth when speak of our culture
I’m not sure why you should care

It’s a tickertape charade and praise is being flung out of cages
The type of scene where youth will congregate

That paragon of men whose record will go down for the ages
Will keep them waiting, so fashionably late

Watch your mouth when speak of our culture
I’m not sure why you should care
Track Name: Finery
Hey mister your lady wants to dance
And you seem unsure about it
Don’t think too long
There is just one more song

Hey mister your lady wants to dance
And you seem confused about it
Well I say don’t wait too long
There is just one more

There’s only one more big crescendo
There’s only one chance to end this, oh so right
Track Name: Bested
Think of all the folks you’ve wronged
You put them where they don’t belong, that’s broken

And even on your nicest day
I wouldn’t treat a snake that way, that’s broken

Take this message clear
We will no longer be bested
We’ve no desire for this mess anymore
We will no longer be bested
We need some resting for sure
Track Name: Anglaise
Oh, to be just as natural
As a 90ft wave or fire on the slope
Instead of sitting dumb in the bureau’s chair
Wrangling with sanity, dashing every hope

To undergo that kind of change
Where whole world stays the same and you come around to it
Where the only mantle that remains is the one you were born with
So you come around to it

Oh, to be something gradual
Like a glacier with time, displacing anything
Instead of sitting dumb, acting casual
While watching acquaintances slowly crumbling

To undergo that kind of change
Where whole world stays the same and you come around to it
Where the only mantle that remains is the one you were born with
So you come around to it
