Track Name: After The Fact
She dreamed that I woke a kissed her
But I never had the chance to risk her
It takes too long to react
I only realize long after the fact
Staring at her hair in the setting sun
Now I can see she’s really under the gun

I’m going to keep everybody guessing
And I’ll be guessing too
I’m going to keep on mind messing
Will I be thinking of you

Head on my pillow, says she’s sick of boys
So I’m separating signal from noise
Recalls a time she was young and naïve
Seems she wanted to relive and relieve
It takes too long to react
I only realize long after the fact
Track Name: A Picture
What are they going to let you do with your life?
You can do what you want so long as they get their cut
You can go where you want so long as you get stuck
You can be where you want so long as you’re in a rut

But every time you picture how life is going to be, it isn’t

What are they going to let you do with your life?
You can get where you want so long as you pay and pay
You can do what you want so long as stay out of the way
You can way what you want so long as you watch what you say
Track Name: Curbside (Alternate Version)
A riot when you’ve been drinking
You were not under your control
Escaped without a scratch
It was a brilliant move you made
Please pass the plate and the bottle
Settle in for a drawn-out drunk
Laying back in the darkroom
Were peeled labels of our mistrust

Somehow I knew
You were just coming back to wrap up loose ends
Somehow you grew
You were just coming back to square your life away

Oh at night with tail lights blurring
Intermittents cross our sights
Rubber left in the road paint
Curbside parking made it right
You’ve got the attitude right near perfect
But your mannerism’s far too rude
Downgrade you from friend to acquaintance
It was the least I could do

I walk home from the edge of the city
Cold cold sky; blue blue grey
Time to think has proved very little
Procrastinate that’s all
