Track Name: Squirrel Song
If I was a squirrel
I'd pick up every acorn in the world
And I would hide them in my squirrel nest
And save them till the winter
And you could go there too
I promise I would always share with you
We could be the best of squirrel friends until the spring

If I was a mouse
I'd hide in the cupboard in your house
and I would do my very very best not to pop out and scare you
And hopefully your mom
Wouldn't try to kill me with a broom
Like you see in all the old cartoons about mice like me

And if you were to love me
I would never let you go
Baby I've been trying to let you know
If you were to love me
I would never let you down
My feet would never hit the ground
You send me flying

If I was a flower I'd grow in the garden in your lawn
Right next to the dandelions cause
You forgot to weed it
Really that's okay
Baby I am not one to complain
All I need's a little bit of sunshine and lots of rain

And if you were to love me
I would never let you go
Baby I've been trying to let you know
That if you were to love me
I would never let you down
My feet would never hit the ground
You send me flying
Track Name: Sleeping with Spiders Remastered
Summer nights play a sweet song
If you're lucky you'll see mosquitos dancing to the tune
In the sky next to spiderwebs
That sparkle in the moon
Through clouds of smoke and sugarcubes they dance
And they dance and they dance and they dance

And in the early afternoon when the most tired eyes unclose
To their windowless rooms in the basement,
A blanket of florescent light illuminates the scene
There's no more music only spiderwebs
And what's left of the mosquitos who love to dance
And they dance and they dance and they dance

Now I know I know
That it hurts to sleep alone
But waking up with bugbites might be worse
But hey, look on the bright side
At least something wants to touch you
And that's more than a lot of folks could say.

Summer nights played a sweet song
I was lucky enough to see mosquitos dancing to the tune
But they got too close to spiderwebs
That glistened in the moon
Through clouds of smoke and sugarcubes they died
But oh how they loved to dance

Now I know, I know
That it hurts to sleep alone
But waking up with bug bites is worse
Don't tell me to look on the bright side
At least something wants to touch you

I'm so tired of sleeping with spiders.
Track Name: Disasterpiece (The Butterfly Effect)
I'm swimming through a hurricane
You speak in tongues
I'm waiting desperately for something that never was
And never will be
Going crazy over you
Running circles through my head
Rethinking everything you've ever said to me
History, my old friend
I'm such a fool to think that this time would be different
But love is cruel
It's always been to me and you

I always knew that loving you would be dangerous
That this all could dissappear into the night
I heard a butterfly in flight
Can cause a tornado if the timing's right
And turn a city into sand in no time at all
That's what it's like to fall in love with someone like you.
You make me feel so small.
That's what you do.

Move through me like a hurricane
Your voice is torture
I think back miserably on what we never were
And never will be
I went crazy over you.
Running circles in my head
Regretting everything I ever said to you.

As the days roll along
I really hope that you'll miss me in the summer.
Oh love is cruel, but so are you.
Track Name: The Art of Abbreviation
Why's it always gotta be a tug of war with you
I feel your eyes pulling me across the room
Back to me back to you
Back to me back to you
Our secret language
You've made an artform
Of abbreviation

So take my body break my bones
Turn them into skipping stones
And throw me back into the ocean where you found me
You're something else

It's always a tug of war with you
You know that I'm right
But magic hearts beat alike
I just want to love you but you love to fight

So take my body break my bones
Turn them into skipping stones
And throw me back into the ocean where you found me
You're something else
You stress me out

We won't kiss and I won't tell
Magic hearts beat a like
I just want to love you but we're always fighting

So take my heart and take my soul
Put them on a fishing pole
And throw me back into the ocean and see if I drown
You're something else
You stress me out
But it's gonna take a lot more than that to tire me out
