Track Name: Temporary Tattoos
the ink never quite took a hold in our skin
erased without noticing
only a few words safe to call
not saying much of anything at all
always a few steps behind
a lack of direction; the fault's always mine

our foot steps are out of sync
we are never where we are when we want us to be
bull dogs and butterflies
superheroes, 25 cent surprise

doesn't matter what you choose, it will wash off in a week or two
Track Name: Crooked Portrait
carried yourself like a crooked portrait on it's way to the black market
but who's gonna pay for you?
acted like i didn't notice, i stayed quiet and i kept my distance
but i saw every move

i think that dress weighs you down
like an anchor you tie to yourself
and i'm not surprised

what hour is this? you're like a worried mother pacing and waiting for a call
but you write the bad news
pictured you as amelia earhart flying till you disappear
make them all search for you

i think that dress weighs you down
like an anchor you tie to yourself
and i'm not surprised

it's always something with you.
Track Name: Tiny Galaxies
if atoms are tiny galaxies, we destroy a million when we breathe
but I guess that you make a billion more when you sneeze
and you're the prettiest universe that I have ever seen
I don't like to think about infinity,
will someone please make it smaller for me
and in the stars there'll be our own
constellations that we have grown
what do you want to make?
if time is only relative, when are we right now?
and is there a parallel me perpetually out of reach
but one day I'll see?
and in the stars there'll be our own
constellations that we have grown
Track Name: Temporary Tattoos (alternate version)
the ink never quite took a hold in our skin
erased without noticing
only a few words safe to call
not saying much of anything at all
always a few steps behind
a lack of direction; the fault's always mine

our foot steps are out of sync
we are never where we are when we want us to be
bull dogs and butterflies
superheroes, 25 cent surprise

doesn't matter what you choose, it will wash off in a week or two
