Track Name: Germany (With Sarah)
We're going to Union City by BART
Take the bus to New Park
This is where the adventure starts
I'm going to kick down the door
And walk into your store
And steal everything that you got
You San Ramon kids don't know shit about us
I'm taking the MUNI to your heart
And I hope you're ready for this start
You're a beautiful piece of art
And baby I'm a buyer
But baby you don't want to be bought
So I'll just get back on the train
And its all over now
Track Name: Space Invaders (With Karina)
well I was sitting beneath the redwood tree
strumming my guitar so quietly
you sat down next to me and you started to sing
I can’t see what anyone can see in anyone else but you
You grabbed my hand to lift me from the ground
But I slipped on a slug and came tumbling down
The birds laughing was the only sound
They started chirping
Do do do dodododod
I cant see what anyone can see in anyone else but you
Lifted our knees and went on a walk
Humming and whistling and skipping rocks
I cant see what anyone can see in anyone else but you
Took off my shoes and gave them to you
You said lets walk through the creek in our bare feet
I’ll be you and you’ll be me
I want to know what it’s like to be lovely
And the water was rushing
Do dod dodo dod odododod
I cant see what anyone can see in anyone else but you
We fell into love and I scraped my knee
But you had a pack of band aids thankfully
I cant see what anyone can see in anyone else but you
I came to your house we had a hug o war
We were kissing and tugging loving on the floor
When we stopped we played some more
And the night whispered
Do dod odododod
I cant see what anyone can see in anyone else but you
Flying saucer vaporized into the night
We walked to the park you held on tight
Sailed through the sky on a big blue kite
Landed on the moon still hanging on to you
And the space invaders sang
Dododododododd
I cant see what anyone can see in anyone else but you
Track Name: The Letter
I hate my phone
because you dont miss me
and i hate being alone
when i know you dont miss me
i drove to your house at 2:30 in the morning
im feeling dirty
so im vacuuming the floor
im so lonely
so im drinking some more
my hearts not broken
but i know its sore
i drove to your house at 2:30 in the morning
you were passed out on the couch
he was in the kitchen reading papers from the day before
im so paranoid
i think im crazy
im so disappointing
i should change but im too lazy
i drove to your house at 2:30 in the morning
you were passed out on the couch
he was in the kitchen reading papers from the day before
and we were on your bed but
i was barely on it
i felt dumb so i left at 5:30 in the morning
you wrote me a letter
all it said was 'im sorry'
Track Name: Strangers (Fast)
I used to sing
i used to dream
i used to be everything
i used to love to be outside
i fell inside of your mirror
everything was backward i felt weird
i didnt know up from down
so i walked away
it was hard to stay
so i flew into outer space
a galaxy i have yet to disgrace
well i grabbed your hand
and you grabbed mine
it was sort of like the very first time
when we were in the theater
we went down the hill we didnt stop
you cried out but i wouldnt drop
we had to get away from the bomb
the mountains trees
the ground the leaves
the sand and sea
everything we were leaving
the car was mad when we got in
before we swim burn your skin
i cant take this world right now
the music lived through my ears
all these years of lawn mowing careers
the world was colors poured out my eyes
blurring by so instantly
i'll explain this immediately
just wait a minute or two
cause our dreams never come true
dreams dont exist
you wake up and thats it
they dont mean shit
the water took over my life
i fell deep inside
hiding from that snake out there
but we were drowning all along
i felt that way when i took you home
i never wanted you to leave
so "come back" to me i'd sing
you sang back to me
"have a safe drive, dont eat your mind"
i am the ghost of a complete stranger
Track Name: Strangers (Slow)
