Track Name: Hibernate
Said goodbyes
as the crow flies
you don’t seem too far away

Strangers talk
too much at bus stops
and I’m left without much to say

So I’ll brave the cold
highway toll roads
the world is a snow globe
outside my window

I don’t know if I should hibernate
through Eastern states

I don’t know if I should get it straight
for Heaven’s sake

I moved from crime block
chainlinked and pad locked
and the neighbors?
I forgot all their names

I hope that real soon
we’ll share space on barstools
and realize that we’re both the same

Darling, when you’re ready
for cake and confetti
we’ll throw big, ol’ parties
so you won’t be lonely

I don’t know if I should hibernate
through Eastern states

I don’t know if I should get it straight
for Heaven’s sake

I walk down ice-blocked sidewalks
and watch it go
it goes and goes and goes and goes

I don’t know if I should hibernate
through Eastern states

I don’t know if I should get it straight
for Heaven’s sake
Track Name: The Sun Doesn't Care About You
Do you think the sun shines just for you?
Oh, of course you do, oh, of course you do
The sun only shines ‘cause shining’s the only thing
it knows how to do
The sun doesn’t care about you

You were right when you said
“You look stoned,” ‘cause I did
I’ll admit I tried to hide it for a minute
To make sure you’d understand
I made a gesture with my hand
but you didn’t see the poetry in it

Do you think the sun shines just for you?
Oh, of course you do love to believe that’s true
The sun only shines ‘cause shining’s the only thing that it knows how to do
The sun isn’t even aware of you

Some soft nothing
some big something
somewhere in between is where everything falls
and, if you do it right, it looks like you’ve done nothing at all

Do you think the sun shines just for you?
Oh, of course you do, oh, of course you do
The sun only shines ‘cause shining’s the only thing
it knows how to do
The sun doesn’t care about you

Yeah, it’s true that I wanted to own you
but, to be fair I wanted you to own me to
I dare you to fuck up, that’s your excuse
When you fuck up you can say I dared you to

Do you think the sun shines just for you?
Oh, of course you do love to believe that’s true
The sun only shines ‘cause shining’s the only thing that it knows how to do
The sun isn’t even aware of you

You were right when you said
“You look stoned,” ‘cause I did
When I squinted hard to see how I fit in
To your plan to hold Heaven in your hand
We’ll, I guess that I didn’t

Do you think the sun shines just for you?
Oh, of course you do love to believe that’s true
The sun only shines ‘cause shining’s the only thing that it knows how to do
The sun isn’t even aware of you

Do you think it shines just for you?
Track Name: The Rule
The rule is to never show the devil too soon,
but of course eventually you have to
The rule is to never show the devil too soon,
but of course eventually he makes you

I had a near-death experience
for two weeks straight, I’ve been dying to tell you
about the meaning of existence
In some small way
we will all live forever

The rule is to never show the devil too soon,
but of course eventually you have to
The rule is to never show the devil too soon,
but of course eventually he makes you

I fell out of what I fell into
and that’s ok. we’re all trying our hardest
to see what the other’s gonna’ do
instead of just looking out for each other

The rule is to never show the devil too soon,
but of course eventually you have to
The rule is to never show the devil too soon,
but of course eventually he makes you

The ones you question
are the ones you keep
At least you know
life will never be boring

The rule is to never show the devil too soon,
but of course eventually you have to
the rule is to never show the devil too soon,
but of course eventually he makes you
