Clean 04:48
I pressed my finger onto the lower vein of the subway map and declared I will live there, fancy that Then the bottom blew out and just a cavity remains with the false pride of a football game I'm one step up with five more to go To the top of the city where the virgin forest grows I have seen the stars fall right from the sky... If I'm wrong, please help me along Sing me the song that leads me to you And know that I will show you everything That I could possibly dream of I've walked this earth, I gathered dirt And now I'm soiled and worn I will pour myself in, put all my quarters in and spin until I'm clean Underneath the skin we move underground I need oxygen so I float uptown to the center, the lungs, the heart The beating of the drums in central park I take this pulse as my own I am connected to my broken home Chorus The sun goes down and I go to The edge of the city to greet the moon The cross the bridge, stop in the middle, drop five pennies a wish an a little Prayer for everyone Sleeping in their beds This world is so fucked up We need all the love we can get

Driving Away 02:53
I saw you driving away this morning where were you going I know that you must be sad but I've never even seen you cry The wind howls your name and blows loneliness through the broken window pane I'm alone at last, it's a shame I can't hold myself while I hold on to you My arms are long enough but my heart gets bruised When I asked you to leave I never would have dreamed you'd leave so easily I saw you driving away this morning where were you going I know that you must be sad but I've never even seen you cry I thank you for all the knowledge you gave me and all the love that nurtured me and saved me I hope that you are good to yourself Cause I think you deserve the top two percent of this nations wealth just don't give your love to anybody else Until I'm far enough away not to hear her name Now I want you to stay but it's too late, it's too late

The Sea 04:25
Fisherman with a cigarette hanging from his lips on a Sunday at the East river it's exquisite Spent the whole day by myself thought about you I hope you're doing well walked by the corner where we first held chest to chest where our souls became one as our bodies presses and you whispered in my ear love without fear I give to the river the river gives to the sea I know what I give comes ten times back to me I tried to give all I had But I guess I didn't have what I thought I had I guess I didn't have what I thought I had We walked the bridges and we stalked the nights Spoke of the riches that we thought we might get slept through the days woke up at dusk strolled into the cafes at five for breakfast I played with fire I said I didn't mind getting burnt but I'm a big liar who wanted to be hurt like you are, like you are I am fascinated with your scars and all your journeys through the dark I give to the river the river gives to the sea I know what I give comes ten times back to me I tried to give all I had But I guess I didn't have what I thought I had I guess I didn't have what I thought I had Those last words that you said to me sounded so absurd and ugly did all that hate make you feel free? O you were my fate, not my destiny
