Track Name: I Forgot If or How I Got to the Beach
Not on my mind
Empty room this time
But then again
Shouldn't I be here?

Tangible walls
Far from where I feel
Under the pier
Shouldn't I be there?

Sand between my toes porcelain china dolls
Might as well be a hospital bed

Telephone line
Recovery time
Shouldn't I be?
Shouldn't you be?

Not in my mind
Track Name: Songs as Soapboxes
Do you want me to say something?
I've got nothing to say.
Track Name: Banana(na)
Peel a peel off a banana
One by one by one
Toss 'em down the street right next to us
Up the avenue just ahead of us

Take a step on a banana
Banana, oh no
Falling, slipping down and up and down
Don't know which ways up till you hit the ground

Blood rushing up to your head
Better think twice before you take another step
Touch your face it's sticky, oh my God, you cracked your skull
Blood gushing out of your head

All goes black and blue and blurry
Follow the light and don't you worry

Where you're going, there's no banana.
Track Name: 15 Step
How come I end up where I started?
How come I end up where I went wrong?
Won't take my eyes off the ball again
Used to reel me out, then you cut the string

Used to be alright, what happened?
Did the cat get your tongue?
Did your string come undone?

One by one
One by one
It comes to us all
It's as soft as your pillow

Used to the alright, what happened?
Et cetera, et cetera
Fads for whatever
Fifteen Step, then a sheer drop

How come I end up where I started?
How come I end up where I went wrong?
Won't take my eyes off the ball again
Used to reel me out, then you cut the string
Track Name: Pocket
feel your breath
on my face
sandy eyes
full of sleep

woke from a nightmare, found myself clinging to you
under the covers, quietly reaching for you
in your bed

rabid heart
catch your breath
find a pace
safe to step

sinking in deeper, coating the mud on our shoes
put your hands on my waist and I’ll teach it to you:
how to dance
how to dance

tuck me into your pocket now
I’ll be safe in your pocket now
rabid heart
catch your breath
