Track Name: exactly like a dog
i'm exactly like a dog except for the important ways
i'm exactly like a dog except for the ways that matter
i'm exactly like a dog except for the important ways
i'm exactly like a dog in certain ways

i'm your broken hearted lover in the springtime
and if you call me to you i'll be right by your side
wipe the salt away that's falling fast from my eyes
and i'll bring you unrequested things you'll like

you can hear my footsteps leaving pawprints in the garden
crushing carrot leaves and lima beans and hearts i've stolen
show you all the broken things in my collection
and i'll be happy just to bask in your attention

i'm exactly like a dog except for the important ways
i'm exactly like a dog except for the ways that matter
i'm exactly like a dog except for the important ways
i'm exactly like a dog in certain ways

now the songs don't come as easy as they used to
i'm too busy finding what i'd say if i just could tell you
it's so discouraging i don't want to continue
but something whispers that my heart still has some value

if i'm too focused there's no way i will hear anyone
i will be lost inside my center, i can just feel everyone
i won't give in until you show me we are one
and i'll crack open all the galaxies i've spun

i'm exactly like a dog except for the important ways
i'm exactly like a dog except for the ways that matter
i'm exactly like a dog except for the important ways
i'm exactly like a dog in certain ways

i'm exactly like a dog
i'm exactly like a dog
i'm exactly like a dog except for the important ways
i'm exactly like a dog in certain ways
Track Name: basement of it all
i'm choking
it's hard to breathe when the air's like this
how do i live like i just exist?
i'm fucking staying in the moment


and that's for sure
i see you dancing with your hardened face
clinging 2 a past you can't erase
there's no escaping from the moment

and we'll fall thru the floor 2 the basement of it all
and i'll tear down the scoreboard like i didn't know at all

we could wake up
we cannot see when we're asleep like this
there's a whole life for you that could be missed
we're fucking praying for forgiveness

and we'll emerge
10 sweet young flowers on the earth's long hair
growing tall above the world we share
and shining with our perfect beauty

i'll char all my programs in the fire
destruction is their greatest purifier

we can say thank you
we can be grateful when we don't fit in
it just reminds us of our special gifts
you know each breath we take is holy

i'll touch yr palms
i'll leave my love where you can find it anytime
keep my hope you'll find somewhere to unwind
in the unfolding of your story

and i'll wash off my fingers in the faucet of the sink
and i'll cry when i remember just about anything

i'll face the mirror
i'll wear my honesty like two white gloves
sticking my branches in the hands of doves
raising my voice from just a whisper

spin the wheel
tell me your fortune and the fate you'll find
we can meet up again in summertime
you can tell me everything you figured out

and we'll fall thru the floor to the basement of it all
and at once we will realize that we never left at all
Track Name: thank you rachael ray
when i was young i saw you on the tv
and since that day passed you've been very special to me
i fell for ur hair and yr voice and yr EVOO
and for the mild entertainment i just wanted you to know

thank u, thank u rachael ray x4

the critics will say that the times of yr meals are a lie
bc we see the end product but prep time passes us by
you have excellent cookware and an extra A in your name
just wish you'd stop cooking animals with all yr talk show fame

but still
thank u, thank u rachael ray x4

all of those cookbooks they line the walls of my heart
i wanted 2 thank u but i didn't know where 2 start
so a palmfull of singing and chords 2 sweeten the deal
to show you stir up my love like a 30 minute meal

thank u, thank u rachael ray x4

thank u, thank u rachael ray x4
Track Name: heart shaped mirror
we'll gallop up the stairs and clean the bathroom with a sponge
we'll clean the drains inside and let the water cry into the dungeon
we'll hug and kiss our friends like we'll see them tomorrow
and with the beauty of the sunrise, we'll weep away our sorrow

lock yr hands with mine and we can dive into the heart shaped mirror
floating over time, we've always been here in the heart shaped mirror

outside the flowers die and the fall looks like a daydream
inside my wings unfurl , you’ll have to fly up just to catch me
up in the stardust , we watch our bodies become water
when they ask where we’ve gone, i’ll say i just saw her

make sure your shoes are dry before dancing on the heart shaped mirror
it won’t hurt to try always living in the heart shaped mirror

bouncing through the grass again , we’re rainbows on a cloud
just light on the ground again, our colors are so loud
a brain like a piñata candy strewn across the floor
sitting in the middle of now after and before !!!

we’ll sit together in the cool waters of the heart shaped mirror
a gentle feather falls on the glasses of the heart shaped mirrors

why don’t we set on fire the tower of misguided culture?
why don’t we shape our backs so they curve a heart shaped sculpture?
why don’t we eat the sand crumbled up around the ocean?
why don’t we warn them all that a giant wave is coming?

i love to be here, i’ll hold you gently in the heart shaped mirror
live in the trees here, we’ll eat the leaves inside the heart shaped mirror
nothing to see here, lets fall in love under the heart shaped mirror
it’s all the same here, living in the heart shaped mirror
Track Name: bats of love
i've got bats of love for you sleeping upside down on the inside
i've got fireflies for you clouding all around me
i've got stacks of rocks for you climbing to the sky on the outside
i'd like to be in moss with you closer than we'd normally stand now

between my hands is the love of warm water
and i am steeping like the little leaves inside

climb up on the roofs of me and sit down on your knees near the skylight
peer down through the glass and find out what's underneath me
wild running wolves of us with glowing silver eyes stalk into hindsight
they break down all the walls of me and send us fantastically tumbling down

sometimes my chest looks just like a pair of pillars
sometimes they buckle under all the weight inside

the months all slip away from me like rain inside my hands splaying open
i can buy myself the time i need but the price is never ending
i'll glue down my eyelids, knit my arms across my body
i'll fall backward in my Love for you and try to forget my fear somehow

between my shoulders is a sweet collage of lovers
thank you for helping me transform the bug inside


i've got bats of love for you snoozing upside down on the inside
and i've got fireflies for you clouding all around me....
Track Name: tangerines
we’ve got our socks on in the creek
night is tumbling down the stream
your mouth of light still whispers day
still got your sunshine on the way

you grow sweeter the more i see
like eating peaches and tangerines
dressed in flowers and leaves
your heart’s a special place to be

when morning comes, we’ll count the frogs
birds, butterflies, angels, and dogs
lay in your daylight until dark comes again
thanks for the time to be your friend

you grow louder the more i see
like all the drums and tambourines
shake the water glowing green
your heart’s a special place to be

we get wiser when we fall
and our troubles make us feel small
but there’s lots of room under this tree
stay on the ground, share some fruits with me

you grow sweeter the more i see
like eating peaches and tangerines
resting in the in-between
your heart’s a special place to be
Track Name: you can't shower this one away
threw myself into the feelings that i love
putting paintbrush to the canvas and bending yarn scraps to the buzz
disobey the standards pressed into my flesh
no one was qualified to help me so i've learned to do my best

don't want to think that this may not work out
don't want to be left with empty pockets and my face jammed in the clouds
don't want to think that this may not work out
finding what i want means that i cant' just turn around

sorry for the water that i waste during my depressive episodes
want to explain the way i'm feeling, but i don't want to be left alone
my words are mediocre and the twisting makes a nest
but i'll remember who believes in me and just love all the rest

don't want to think that this may not work out
because i am rich as ever with my feet still on the ground
banish the thought that this may not work out
i am finding what i want and i am growing with the sound

i'll pray that they'll forgive me and i'll forgive them back
and i'll trust that it's okay to fall if you get back on track
and from here i'll keep on singing, from here i'll show my art
and i'll face the fears i pushed away and what i was afraid to start

its time to believe that this will work out
throw my pain into the ocean where all my fears will drown
trusting you now that this will work out
picking up inspiration from your lost and found
Track Name: stepdad
i'm marrying yr mom, i'm yr new stepdad
I’m marrying yr mom, i’m yr new stepdad
its alright if u don't want 2 call me dad
its alright if u don’t want 2 call me dad


i'll fire up the grill and i'll call u sport
and i'll sit and watch the game in cargo shorts
yr old enough to know that i bang yr mom
but young enough i act like nothing's wrong


i'm marrying yr mom, i'm yr new stepdad x2
its alright if u don't want 2 call me dad x2


yr mother knows i've never had a kid
but i lie and tell her that i'm fine with it
the truth is yr no fun to have around
u go to school, play xbox on the couch


i'm marrying yr mom, i'm yr new stepdad x2
its alright if u don't want 2 call me dad x2


i'm mowing the lawn, drinking beer & watching TV
i'm loving yr mom, and she's in love with me
i'm mowing the lawn, drinking beer & watching TV
i'm loving yr mom, and she's in love with me


i'm marrying yr mom x4


i'm marrying yr mom, i'm yr new stepdad x2
its alright if u don't want 2 call me dad x2


i'm mowing the lawn, drinking beer & watching TV
i'm loving yr mom, and she's in love with me
Track Name: friends.jpg
when you judge another be sure to ask yrself why
do you see yr insecurities inside of yr friends eyes?
does it hurt yrself to feel like you could be just like them?
maybe you won't notice because you just won't let yourself in

when you look around please notice we're all made of the same stuff
and letting your emotions flow makes you soft and very tough
so whether you spend your days crying or lost in meditation
please find comfort in the knowing its all a divine orchestration


if you're gone forever i'll really miss you
if you're gone forever i will still think of you
if you're gone forever i'll really miss you
if you're gone forever i don't know what i'll do
don't know what i'll do

when you face the undesireable wrap your arms around yourself
lift your feet out of the casket, kiss your pain until it helps
if this strategy won't work for you, we'll help you keep on trying
we can stretch our hands out far enough for you to float up, flying

we could see ourselves as fragments, as slivers of the trees
as the yarn inside the carpet, as the blood between my teeth
but i'll expand my awareness, knowing i am all and nothing
sitting on the clouds of heaven, being understood and trusting

if you're gone forever, i'll understand you
if you're gone forever, i'll be compassionate to you
if you're gone forever, i'll really miss you
if you're gone forever, i'll know just what to do
i'll know just what to do

i'll dissolve into glitter, i'll explode into a star
i'll paint the talons of an eagle, i'll keep sleeping in the car
i'll pull oxygen into muscles and life into my bones
i'll keep yelling out my story into all these microphones

the moral of the story is its all down to perspective
comprehension of reality for each person is subjective
there's no good and bad to judge upon and that's how the story ends
we've got love, internal guidance, and we always have our friends
