Track Name: The Secret Plans Of Men (Clean Version)
you called me back today, we talked an hour and a half
too bad it took ten years to get your courage back
i believe you when you say we can be friends
cause you don’t understand the secret plans of men

there’s always a voice in my head a conquistador who wants to move on
explore new lands, conquer new beds and live new songs
in every town there’s a woman like you and i give her my hand
i try to abandon the secret plans of men

as your words wash over me
i miss your crooked teeth

in frozen lofts and parking lots i’ve watched your passions drained
i know that you love me but i need to see you to smile again
you claim i don’t need you cause there’s no ring on your hand
but you don’t understand the secret plans of men

as your words wash over me
i miss your tiny feet

with hearts and heads intact our future together seems shelved
we’re living out a lease like it’s all that’s keeping us bound
i promise before i leave i’ll try everything i can
but now i’m longing for the secret plans of men

as these emotions wash over me
i’m not sure that i can leave
as these emotions wash over me
i’m not sure that i can leave
Track Name: Read Nausea Again
i put marks on myself hope i'm easier to find
you backed me in a corner said "you're born to be mine"
but i've been confusing cleanliness with godliness
this numbing repetition with a lack of success

so i have to go if you can't follow me then why should i wait for you?

she sells coffee in a short skirt
the yellow eyes never touched her
her shoes are too small in some attempt to look cute
she looks like she just bought mall

she was a genius she was gorgeous
it's ridiculous how stupid she pretends to be
confusing meaning with money

he wanted to save the world but now he's just so bored
took a ride on a subway train everyday
the colors taste great but the taste doesn't change

he said "i have to go, if you can't follow me then why should i wait for you?"

i have to go if you can't follow me then why should i wait for you?

i put marks on myself to remind myself
read nausea again
read nausea again
Track Name: Exie
cheerful stacks of smoke
from the red brick homes
are waving down a winding two-lane road

broke-down tobacco barns
lean on empty farms
and i feel so far away in this car

from bluegrass meadows we used to roam
where our troubles were left alone
time she’s a jealous thief
that preys on the weaknesses of everything

i feel so far away in this car
Track Name: Sixteen Years (Marissa)
marissa took a shower and no one really knew her but me
she made it sixteen years without really trying

and i want her
and i want her dead

marissa took a shower and i had my way with her slowly
she made it sixteen years without a fear of dying

and i want her
and i want her dead

she turned me, i tore her down
i never fail to dream about
the way her body lay so drained of life that summer night
she turned me, i tore her down
i never stopped to think about
her brother’s angry stares behind my back

and i want her
and i want her
and i want her dead
Track Name: Between You And Tequila
counting fingers and toes again
making math problems out of friends
heading to the bay to catch some sun
thinking everything we’ve done is done

between you and tequila
i need to find a new divide
between you and tequila
i’ve got nowhere left to hide

someone painted stars on the floor
called the whole place sacred
i picked out a girl from the crowd
and she was no angel

scratching fingers on the bottle again
counting down to when we won’t be friends

between you and tequila
i need to find a new divide
between you and tequila
i’ve got nowhere left to hide

someone painted stars on the floor
called the whole place sacred
i picked out a girl from the crowd
and she was no angel
