Track Name: Residue
I used to think you were the only one on this island
now its time to reverse the lie
and give back the things youve taken of mine
its true she told me with her hands
but ive got a hell of a plan

my lips are sealed now or so it may seems
i wont lie
although ill try
and try not to look you in the eye
all love withers and dies
but ive got a hell of a plan

Sweet summer salts that shimmer and shine
on your lips and on your thighs
and in the dark right behind of your eyes
all love withers and dies
all love withers and dies
all love withers and dies

but ill

Ill leave behind my Residue
Track Name: Two Lost Souls
Two Lost souls who are in love

always waiting for the other one to be alright

itll be alright
lover one
itll be alright
said the honey one.
Track Name: Jellyfish
Under june full moon
i took my baby to the beach
we washed our bodies down
in the salty sea
we saw baby seals
jellyfish round our feet
and later on as we sleep
adrienne had a prophecy dream

dont you get me
dont forget me

now we're back in town
getting higher and higher everyday
its only a matter of time
before one of us is locked away
theres no baby seals
no jellyfish round our feet
as i look at the moon
i have a prophecy dream
Track Name: Brian Wilson said
im a little bit older than you
and im a little bit wiser too
i grow a little bit colder than you
each time i push on through

i let go
i slipped inside
journeyed through the cavernous colds
and found a little secret something that blew my mind

mother said son
what happened to your beautiful eyes
good friend said buddy
what happened to your beautiful mind

as i awoke this morning
i couldnt get out of bed
i just lay there thinking
about something Brian Wilson had said
then i received a letter
tore it open right away
though it said i was to blame id be forgiven anyway

it read 'Joe, why dont you open your eyes, rejoin that fabulous fold, try to get better one piece at a time'
i said 'no, id rather die, than rejoin that fabulous fold, it broke my heart and it damn near broke my mind'
Track Name: You're just a mirror you're supposed to be on my side
as time goes rolling by
like the river on its moonlight ride
in the wink of a young girls eye
you are forgiven for wanting to cry

as you looking at yourself in the morning
you break down , without warning
youre just a mirror youre supposed to be on my side
you are forgiven for wanting to cry

as you wake up feeling broken
all your good things have been stolen
all your good feelings have been smoken
dont you think
its just about time
to hide away

when you think of all the times you lied
when you were young, when you were high
youre like the river all open and wide
you are forgiven for wanting to cry

so many songs so many lines
what can i say now
what can i write
i just love you, thats no lie
Track Name: Cold Embrace (cold outside space)
he was an artist and lived as such
he was cold and heartless
reckless and unbelieving

they were betrothed
golden serpent
ring on her finger
its tail in its mouth
itll never come out

he wrapped her up in his cold embrace
so no other man could see her face

it was a secret side by side
as the sun dies the moon will rise
and does to them the great divide

he grew cold
she grew tired
and in the end
she died she just expired

he wrapped her up in his cold embrace
so no other man could see her face

no music now, but heart against chest
hes scared he sweats
for the cold arms are now around his neck

they whirl him around will not be flung off
he can no more escape their grasp
than he could escape death

and now theyre clasped around her breast
but he does not shun their caress
one more dance then hell drop down dead

He wrapped her up in his cold embrace
