1.
Buffalo (free) 03:01
In gummy lips We hide soft teeth Our fins collapse Our lobes retreat The poison takes I guess there goes our teeth This rot has got us bad It's alright We left our homes We turned our backs We laid our babes To the howling packs We said our rites We made our vows We broke them all The poison takes I guess there goes our teeth This rot has got us bad It's alright We ate our young In tender steaks We laid our farms On a massive flame When the buffalo Finally came home We cooked them too Oh, we cooked them too When the buffalo Finally came home We cooked them too
2.
All of Them (free) 04:09
We swim in pools of leaking batteries New worlds shaped by old diaries Closer now to the drowning sun Than we ever were to the hotter one On display in amber blocks Hot but trimmed by permafrost Now we're moved by most anything Bloody feet, wallets, and shark teeth Sink, sink, galaxies, microchips, everything Sink, sink, pyramids, rock n roll, everything All of them All of them All of them Dead
3.
Repaired (free) 04:16
Strange new centuries begin Cold hooks piercing through our skin Sparks still smolder in our hair Oh Lord knows we weren't prepared We weren't prepared This was where we came to be repaired Workers glowing in their suits Oh Lord maybe it's the fumes In this engine of despair Nothing human will be spared Will be spared Of course it isn't fair They plucked out all our hair And this was where we came to be repaired This was where we came to be repaired
4.
Vacant Lots (free) 02:45
Buildings up and walk away Dead to what we want to say Buildings up and walk away Strip malls put their jackets on Water towers looking on Strip malls put their jackets on Statues lace up running shoes Funeral homes sing the blues Statues lace up running shoes Piers out strolling on the beach California's moving east Piers out strolling on the beach Vacant lots are Waking up and Starting to wonder
5.
Keep Sinking (free) 03:19
We level churches but the verses keep ringing out We flatten headstones but the bodies keep sinking down We level churches to provoke more ringing We flatten headstones but the bodies keep sinking
6.
Coffins (free) 03:51
Bathe in the microwave waves we discover The ruins that rise from the ash just to crumble Gathering scraps from their factory floors Beings that don't need our breath anymore We stand in shifts To sew them closed They'll never know Into a dark Place they forgot That's where we'll go Down in the mines where the bright toxins glow Skeletons made up in delicate poses Now they can surface and shake their parts free Now they can splinter and shatter and leave Tell all the textbooks Call all the coffins We're here to raise dead animals and then stuff them Paging the phone books Ringing small bells These are the sirens they sing to themselves
7.
Fire Sale (free) 03:23
We woke up to the awful sound Of clanking in our ears canal Clanking in our ear canals They took us to a sterile room Pumped us full of vacuum tubes Pumped us full of vacuum tubes Do you need a fresh set of lungs? Would you like a new way to breathe? We line up with our mismatched limbs Singing just remembered hymns Singing just remembered hymns No one should deny themselves A slow drink from a scavenged mouth A slow drink from a scavenged mouth hey! Do you need a fresh set of lungs? Would you like a new way to breathe?
8.
Dead Pistons (free) 02:25
We raise Our feeble cries to the clatter But the din Is far too dense to know So back In To Our Holes We go Slow mechanic breath into our all too animal skin We'd believe in anything To make dead pistons pump again Slow mechanic breath into our all too animal skin We'd believe in anything There are surges and shocks but mostly we feel consistent Arthritis racks our most insignificant bones Back In To Our Holes We go Slow mechanic breath into our all too animal skin We'd believe in anything To make dead pistons pump again Slow mechanic breath into our all too animal skin We'd believe in anything To make dead pistons pump again
