Track Name: Jungle Hijinks
Long blink, closed eyes
Got to lend myself to your game
Short pants but brief sighs
Sure to let the day go by

That's right old girl I wanna stay in the jungle
I don't wanna see or know when this place is going to out grow
It's like a charm I thought it would last
I know it's too far I can't confront my past

Scenic route for the easy mind
Why not drop out, come back sometime
Hand clap, love tap
I'll stay here I'll be in contact
I can't believe you still deny
Your city's bright lights light my night sky


That's right old girl I wanna stay in the jungle
I don't wanna see or know when this place is going to out grow me
It's like a charm I thought it would last
I know it's too far and I don't confront my past
Track Name: Ask for the Alleycat
This deal caught me soloing
upon the river's broken raft
Though the eyes still do scare me
behind them you laugh

On the pea pod crucifix
the shale in the night
cracked towards the heed
of her pale morning fright

My brow's upon my eyes as she snaps back to life

This deal caught me soloing
upon the river's broken raft
Yes the eyes still do scare me
Behind them you laugh

On the pea pod crucifix
the shale in the night
cracking more towards the heed
of her pale morning fright

My brow's upon my eyes
as she snaps back to life
And so it seems that
our parted ways both turned right

The trick the trick my dear
is to try and understand
It's not in your head
at least it's not in your bed
Track Name: Carnival Boy
Shaking my skin loose from the bone
Was more a lie than a blow to the chest
Well, you can stay a while longer I guess
In the morning we'll awake
In a tremble, fretting, sweating shake
With the covers in bits
Over to the look on your face
As it all melts into place

Maybe this is not the place for me
Contemplate it quickly boy
As she turns to you ready to say
This time is not what you buy at the store

My mistakes can shine through now
In this little circus carnival place
Then she turns to you as if she can't say
I didn't make it that way

Quickly in time now
At the chime of the door
The rattle of the window
And the knocks on the floor

Bring back that fuzzy voice that
Danced around in choice
Track Name: Okotoks
reckless animation, hypothetical resignation
you buckle under pressure
unsure what to think so you disappear
she pretends to portend
but the feeling wont fend off the ones who not of her
salt mind, tinted eyes
fire burning high she'll you broken and brusied

in a foreign enclosure
she's got kaleidoscope eyes staring through these walls
she ain't another one of those girls that'll take the fall
obsessed with the plot leaves a soft spot for painted young
stuck to the wall she'll leave you on the streets asking for more

when I was a boy I never meant no harm
we left her sleeping awake, we left her in the middle of the storm
you used be a thespian, poetic words leave your lips
now you're left in the mindset of a stone cold killer like this
Track Name: Fleet-Footed Friends
The animals have escaped
Cages left open, words unkindly spoken
Roaming the streets, preying on the weak
The hierarchy has been broken

They take they don't give
Few morals govern how they live
Karma can be chewable it tastes, it tastes somewhat sweet
Hypocrites are everywhere always on their feet
And what they don't live they will lie
Because it's always What's to beat

Well, if you look them in the eyes
they might take it as a threat
Figure it'd be their best bet
with their conscience far away
Becoming so vague,
Explain what we made

They take they don't give
Few morals govern how they live
Karma can be chewable it tastes, it tastes somewhat sweet
Hypocrites are everywhere always on their feet
And what they don't live they will lie
Because it's always What's to beat?

They take they don't give
Few morals govern how they live
Karma can be chewable it tastes, it tastes somewhat sweet
Hypocrites are everywhere always on their feet
And what they don't live they will lie
Because it's always What's to beat?
