Track Name: Dad
we were another year
fast asleep
on the floor

woke up to herodad
trying to bring me back
or find things that
i would've spat

when he asked you how old you are
and you said seven
could it have been two

after my sleep
what I thought came out of me
even ones I didn't need

when they made me more than me am
and gave me seconds
could it have been three

walked in a city’s sun
finding another one
or am I stuck
the more I walk

big right long street same
street right long same big street
Track Name: Horse / Giddyup
he had my horse
my friendhorse
up in the castle

i opened the door
he said listen
listen to him

i leaned in
nice and close
and he spoke

bobobo
Track Name: Fish
this is how to catch a fish
this is how to keep it alive
how to throw back
a fish you don't like

and that way
something bad won't fall on you
something big won't swallow you

this is how to love a man
and if he knows the family car
won't fly to space
there are other ways

and if they
don't work out don't feel too bad
don't work out don't feel too bad
Track Name: Herodad
after my sleep
what I thought came out of me
even ones I didn't need

when they made me more than me am
and gave me seconds
could it have been three

walked in a city’s sun
finding another one
or am I stuck
the more I walk

fast asleep
on the floor
Track Name: Friendhorse
he had my horse
my friendhorse
up in the castle

i opened the door
he said listen
listen to him

i leaned in
nice and close
and he spoke
Track Name: Metalfish
this is how to catch a fish
this is how to keep it alive
how to throw back
a fish you don't like

and that way
something bad won't fall on you
something big won't swallow you
something bad won't follow you
something big won't swallow you
