Track Name: Made It Up
I made it up just to see you
I gave it up so I could be you

Made you up, it's so likely
I spread you out to make them like me
I read you out, you tried to steal me
Then I bled you out and I'm reeling

I made it up just to see you
I gave it up so I could be you
Track Name: Stables
No I've never been able to chase the horses to their stables in your arms
I've been aging, pacing and rearranging behind your shadow

For your loss makes me shudder, violence violence

But soon I'll rearrange enough to bring you back and then it's gone, all gone, the empty parachute is you
New eyes have a way of making you feel better.
Is it wrong?
I'm wrong.
Never wrong if you think it's true.
Track Name: Maniac
Think about it, think about the back and forth and the through and through
What you want is a maniac making love to his cranium
And when I saw you yesterday you were making the biggest mistake

Pull the trigger, splatter the radio with your point of view
What you got is the pull and screw, hot chick making love you
And when we take a break or two, we remember what, when, why and who

What you want is a maniac, making love his cranium

And all my dreams are waiting for me at the end of the street
Do you know why I never tried to come see you?

I knocked your head off today 'cuz momma said it was OK
And all my hands begone, and all my hands begone to see
I knocked your head off today because God said it was OK
And all my friends have gone, and all my friends have gone to sleep
Track Name: Indian Feather
I was bracing for disaster and you were filling up with anger

We stood by the waterfall

I was made of bone and leather and you were my Indian feather

I have just discovered what is was
The sun rise in the Appalachian Valley
Track Name: Pink Mirror
