The only man below me is a child Then everyone a number Gender is a power There above you is a god without a sex Though you love to end it in a “Y” and not an “X” With everyone a number gender is a power

Hardly been in one place But what do I leave, and what do I keep from all these faces? And I’m seeing new lines in the space near your eyes I wish I had been there to see it happen. When it seems to go on and on and on Can you leave what you started, can you really be parted from it? I don’t know the difference, when it stops on being you and [is just] something that you used to do. When nothing is the same, but you still feel the same I’m wondering when it’s going to catch up with me. Still seeing pictures in the paint It’s getting hard for me to claim what really was mine and what really was yours. When it seems to go on and on and on Can you leave what you started, can you really be parted from it? I don’t know the difference, when it stops on being you and [is just] something that you used to do.

Kyle doesn't want to be the subject of textbooks Kyle only wants to have a footnote about him Kyle is ashamed of his longing for fame and so he says a thing like that Kyle isn’t clamoring for canonization Kyle is gonna settle for your quiet respect and Kyle is evaluating, feeling your judgement, so he says a thing like that And maybe that's what I like about him Is that he secretly gives a damn And Kyle was never gonna be a sweet talking, sugarcoat man Kyle feels accomplished in his minor achievements He can feel his freedom now he's given up soft drinks I laugh but he says "Emily, don't you have your vices?" He can say a thing like that. Yeah, he can say a thing like that. And maybe that's what I like about him Is that he secretly gives a damn And Kyle was never gonna be a sweet talking, sugarcoat man No Kyle was never gonna be a sweet talking, sugarcoat man

Blonde hair and a body slender, Voice is soft and sweet, Ain’t my Type but I feel drawn to her, Knoacked me off my feet. Overpowered by a breath of anger, But she’s got power too, Power over a perfect stranger, I’m in love with you.

100 Watts AB 03:01
100 watts of type AB, It just ain’t what it used to be. And all the gods of Thunder Mountain Are all lined up at the drinking fountain. Once we worshipped at the Coliseum Now you gotta go to casinos to see ‘em. Twenty bucks admission to museum, Where you laugh about how you used to wanna be ‘em. Find me at the end, Yes you can find me at the end, But you will never find what you want, I’ll tell you once again, Rock and roll is here to stay, I think it stopped by just the other day. It’s mom and dad kicked it out, it hitched a ride into town, And now it’s sleeping on our couch! Love ain’t what it used to be, Confusing acrobatics and shaky knees, Set to acoustic pleas, tuned to open G, A little cheesy but man was it easy. I practiced more than the football team! My life felt like the riff from “Runnin’ Down a Dream”-- A dream that was carefully preserved, Had more fun than we probably deserved. Find me at the end, Yes you can find me at the end, But you will never find what you want, I’ll tell you once again, You will never find what you want, You’re never gonna win. I’ll see you on election night At the battle of the bands (electric lights) To the duly elected, newly selected, Keepers of the flame we had long neglected. Rock and roll is here to stay, I think it stopped by the other day. It’s mom and dad kicked it out, it hitched a ride into town, And now it’s staying on our couch! Now it’s sleeping on our couch!

Born to Spin 04:40
We came to visit you on Christmas week, Alyssa was home from Logan for a winter break, When we saw you through that complex glass, She cried and stared at her feet, Her eyes too soft for you in that sharp scene, You blushed against a cold concrete, I read a verse when faith felt meaningful to me, It turned my visions toward fate and destiny, “We know that all things work together For them that love God” Did god intend that you and I get lost? If you loved Him would we here at all? Did I chose it, all this singing, praying, and religion? Born to spin, born to run, born to sin Born to spin, born to run and born to be my kin Soon, in time, they set you free, free from the jail but not from the drink, You shaved your head, and stood looking unashamed, Known before you’re born, and were you named? How much of this scene was foreordained? Did a power fate this singing, praying, and religion? Born to spin, born to run, born to sin Born to spin, born to run and born to be my kin

How? Suspended leaf A color “And I did this all!” A metal arm And movement “And I did this all!” How? “Hey!” [Grace reveals itself in a rumble and I shout]

Power 03:33
Power can make a man do certain things Like stay where he’s not wanted; make us feel like we can’t think And all we ought to do is tell him your talk is cheap And we’ll send him on his way, don’t come back to bother me, no Him with his sweet words he made us feel secure Like nothing else could harm us, long as he could rule the world And he swore we’d rule together but I never understood That together meant he’d rule and say that which for me was good, no Gather ‘round my friends I’ve got some things to say Just believe me when I tell you I have found a sure fire way I’ll make sure that none go hungry and that everybody’s well Just know I can keep you safe; can keep you far away from hell. yeah You can call me brother, yes and you can call me friend I will lead you through this wicked world to right back where we stand And I promise none will harm you or contaminate your soul You’ll be clean as when you started. You’ll be perfect. You’ll be whole. Yeah

Quanah 03:47
Quanah, you wait Shaking in your grave, you wait People in your backyard River, you wait Shovel at your side, you wait Force it open wide Stab in the back, heart attack, you know They’re turning the clean water black, keep your voice down low Hope it doesn’t show Sacred Black Hills, million dollar bill, You will see the oil spill

We could talk about the weather We could bitch about the game We could reel with disappointment For me it’s much more than a frame Who are you to understand me now while I can’t see myself? One good look and I’m left speechless I’ll keep bracing for disaster And she’ll keep trying not to be missed We could sing a song of patience I could go all in on hope But this bridge is cursed with weaknesses And I’m setting fire to the rope Let’s review all of your promises to see how they align With just some of what I’d hoped for If it’s as we all expected We’ll bare or bury this to fight more

Employment 02:49
What do you see Ahead of you there? With ambition you reach As you step over me And I want to be crushed Under the thumb of someone just like you Someone as strong If I’m gonna be crushed until I’m gone It isn’t worth it if it’s half done I disappeared Before you knew I was there I gave you all All my love and my fear And I want to be crushed Under the thumb of someone just like you Someone as strong If I’m gonna be crushed until I’m gone It isn’t worth it if it’s half done

Powered Down 04:37
Turn it off Tone it down You've been told You're better without Not in thought Not out loud Your standing on Sacred ground I question, I question But I can't let it go to my head I get the answers, get the answers, look at the answers I wanted to hear Punching out Driving round A fitter curse Invisible crown Only one thing Left unfound You won't notice Til you power down

I left a note on the bed. I bet you don’t even know what it said. I put it all out there, I wrote it down. Then I left, didn’t want to hang around. It said… “I believe in restitution, But for now, I’m all on my own.” If there’s one thing I know, It’s that I can’t let you go. But you drag me Around like a toy. I don’t know what to do. I’m done playing games with you. You have to give me the power of love. You don’t listen when I try to say That you keep pushing me away. I won’t stick around if that’s how we are. You know we won’t get very far. It might not be a solution, But I hope that it’s not goodbye. If there’s one thing I know, It’s that I can’t let you go. But you drag me Around like a toy. I don’t know what to do. I’m done playing games with you. You have to show me the power of love. Show me the power! Show me the power of love! Lose all your doubt Let it all out. Show me the power of love!
