Track Name: James Alex Chilton
Old friends grow into old men
While hard lines die with the best
We’re out there
Chasing our old light
We’re finally bright

Old friends long to be young men
When hard times built us the best
We’re out there
Chasing our old light
We’re finally bright


You say, “Why?”
You say what I…
You say whatever’s on your mind


Old friends, we’ve become old men
With hard times, die like the rest
We’re out there
Chasing our own light
We’re finally bright

You say, “Why?”
You say what I...
You say whatever’s on your mind
You say, “Why?”
You say what I...
You say whatever’s on your mind
Track Name: Monarch of the Mountain
They weren’t the keepers
No secret fire there
Still I auditioned
A lifetime defined, to remind: the divine
Whenever your heart says, “the waitress...”
Go now, write it down
(Be)cause I’ve seen the end and it comes too soon

We fall apart
And then we’re gone
We wait our turn
We never learn

I’ve been to the mountain
Inflated my purpose here
I’ve been the villain
I am The Dance that Defies Doom
But I’ve said the wrong thing so many times
That I’m counting my cringes
Instead of sheep
When I try to sleep

We fall apart
And then we’re gone
We wait our turn
We never learn

I’ll be smarter, kinder next time
We’ll catch it early next time
The only way to leave is through
Track Name: Two to Grow Small
No I don’t mean it
Or do I
I shape it so I don’t become it
Or do I


If sleep can’t unspool it
If death can’t wake it
If I scrape my knees when I hit the ground
The devils get toothless this time


Wrong again
I’m wrong again my love


Is it any wonder that no one can find you at home?
Is it any wonder that no one can find you at home?


Take one to grow big
Two to grow small
Take it and take it and take it
I take until I disappear


Wrong again
I’m wrong again my love


Is it any wonder that no one can find you at home?
Is it any wonder that no one can find you at home?
Is it any wonder no one
Is it any wonder I can’t find it
Is it any wonder that no one can find you alone?
Track Name: Wicked
Would you syncopate my sleep
Satisfy my wicked gleam
Settle down, down
Press yourself against what I have labored long to keep

It’s all writ the same
You can’t escape
How you are made

Could you sanctify my need
Alone, and hold my wicked deed
Please take your time, time
Force my sold confession, quell my deadly curiosity

It’s all writ the same
You can’t escape
How you are made

It’s all writ the same
You can’t escape
How you are made
Track Name: You Get One
Hardest to take:
“You are overrated”
Expert witness your artist
Dissolve

Bargain in place
Call a chaperone
You’re pardoned

Your criminal mastermind is right on time

A different kind of
White knuckle weekend
Your decade
Dissolves

Hardest to fake
We are over blaming
Expert weakness
Your charges (your charge is)

Your criminal mastermind is right on time
What if we make our escape and it’s too late?
Track Name: In Plain Sight
Oh trouble
You made a schemer of me
And when you wake up happy
Calling me

No no trouble
Whenever I say your name
You’ll find the house all in flames,
And dancing

Tell me
Are you waiting in the light?
Are you hiding in plain sight?
What’s the price you’re asking
For another ride?

No more trouble
No don’t you tempt from the throne
That I would claim as my own
The folly

Oh trouble
You are the devil in me
And when we wake up happy
Mmm

Tell me
Are you waiting in the light?
Are you hiding in plain sight?
What’s the price I’m paying
For the ride this time?
