Track Name: Animal Instinct
Take it back a step for my sake
You know it hasn't always been so easy
I used to be just an animal dressed
In the trappings of love lost
In the trappings of love lost
In the trappings of love lost

I thought you would educate me on this?
I didn't know...
I thought you would educate me on this?
I didn't know...
I thought you would educate me on this?
I didn't know...
I thought you would educate me on this?
I didn't know...

Swing low sweet harmony
I'm an addict for you baby
And it feels alright to me
Swing low sweet melody
I'm an addict for you baby
And it feels alright to me....
And it feels alright to me....

On my lips there's this new flavor
Something sweet and salty lingering on
On my lips there's this new flavor
Something sweet and salty lingering on
On my lips there's this new flavor
Something sweet and salty lingering on

I used to be just an animal dressed
I used to be just an animal dressed
In the trappings of love lost
In the trappings of love lost
In the trappings of love lost....
Track Name: Wolf
Pull the wool over my eyes so I can't look back
Maybe you're not the kind of guy who's thinking about the next thing
Any step you take could be a peril or a beautiful thing
No one stands a chance against timing

I can't seem to sit still for another moment
I know I should be so happy with everything that I've got
Why do ugly truths have to be so important?
I want to fall for every trick in the book and you know it...

When you pick up the phone
I'll say something sweet
And help you feel better
About fooling me....

There used to be this feeling I could never quite speak
Why can't you be happy with the life you created?
I'm afraid that someday I'll wake up and be like you
Always wanting more and never sated

I can't seem to sit still for another moment
I know I should be so happy with everything that I've got
Why do ugly truths have to be so important?
I want to fall for every trick in the book and you know it...

I can't move against the years
I can't make you speak your peace
I can be a better person
Than the one you seem to be
When you pick up the phone
I'll say something sweet
And help you feel better
About fooling me....
Track Name: Long Notes
You might want to go to sleep
I'm not tired just thirsty
Don't wait up for me...
Your voice is no stranger to me
Than my own, my own
What I lack in common sense
I make up for in long notes
Long notes.... Long notes....

They say, I'm a fool they don't know
Anything about anything, anything about me
They say, hold your heart, lock it down, let it out,
Don't be so, don't be so tricky
They say, break it down, break a sweat, work it out
Till you're thin or better yet skinny
They say, take it fast, take it slow
I can't, I can't, I can't keep listening

Things are going so great for me and I appreciate you asking
No, no one here could perceive the ritual of this time passing
Slow is my new attempted speed but I feel dumb for even trying
No, truth doesn't have to be a more complicated form of lying
No, truth doesn't have to be a more complicated form of lying
No, truth doesn't have to be a more complicated form of lying

I have a wonderful love...
She is so gentle on me
She makes me open up you know
And sing long notes....
Track Name: Past Lives
I can't believe this is happening
The cracks are spreading open
I've fallen into some kind of strange past life
Like a ritual, still in motion

I want all the little things to add up
All the moments of recognition
Like I've been here before
But I can't hold the whole vision

In my mind, I have always known
I can predict what you're asking for
In my mind, I look forward
And change the way I'm acting

In this present embodiment
I'll be purely graceful
I will try to bite my tongue
And avoid the pitfalls

There's a feather and a tear
In the paper, the pattern
I'll be waiting over there
With a handle on it

In my mind, I have always known
I can predict what you're asking for
In my mind, I look forward
And change the way I'm acting


In my mind, I have always known
I can predict what you're asking for
In my mind, I look forward
And change the way I'm acting


In my mind, I have always known
I can predict what you're asking for
In my mind, I look forward
And change the way I'm acting
