Tapes ‘n Tapes Buckle

call me out, call me out, call me out, call me out, call me out, call me out alright

I can’t sing in key

leave me be, leave me be, leave me be, leave me be, leave me be, leave me be,

I’m not so in chic

cut me short, cut me short, cut me short, cut me short, cut me short, cut me short, short so i can sleep

walking rummy

toes that are clenched to fight

right is still the right

you slipped, you run too fast

call me out, call me out, call me out, call me out, call me out, call me out alright

I can’t sing in key

leave me be, leave me be, leave me be, leave me be, leave me be, leave me be,

I’m not so in chic

cut me short, cut me short, cut me short, cut me short, cut me short, cut me short, short so i can sleep

roadstars reeling

counting cash for years,

years, and steers, and fears

I’ve come home too fast

take a clip and corroborate and kill created kind,

oh it stuns our kind

you, you’ve plugged your ears

you’ve called me out and still you call

not need to have, but need to want

the timeshare’s sold, your chip’s grown old

there’s talk of curtains

come too shy to heed me for too long

Tapes ‘n Tapes Just Drums

Forget calls to teacher.

Forget calls in line.

We fall off furry creatures.

Fall off all the time.

And it’s not your headdress.

It’s not your hide.

It’s feeling the cold.

It’s feeling the cold.

(These things that we don’t talk about, breathe about. Do I? No.)

Take me over.

Take it over time.

Your needs keep talking.

Your pets they lie.

(These things we’ve never seen before come and meet you, come and fight you. You know they do.)

Reeling in fog. Kneeling in fog.

Reeling in fog. Kneeling in fog.

I’ve been really better under lock.

Come on over the side.

Come on over.

Take the leave for bread

And the leave for brine.

(It seems to me we’ve been lying here all night)

And bait and bows and sows and troughs.

I’ve coughed enough and I’ve walked as much.

(Come to me in metaphor. We’ve met before and I was all in spades.)

Reeling in fog. Kneeling in fog.

Reeling in fog. Kneeling in fog.

I’ve been really better under lock.

When you feel the fog,

It takes all the fog.

I can’t break the fog.

I’ve been really better under lock

Tapes ‘n Tapes The Iliad

Will you love me like a sailor who loves the seven seas?

And when my bones get older, will you drag me to my knees?

Like a drunken pirate shipwreck on the golden caskets worn,

It’s the time when we’re together.

It’s the time that keeps me young.

The burning size of sirens lies.

The burning size of sirens lies.

Show me

Show me

Show me

When you go by the ocean, will you look to the sea?

Always keep an eye for my coffin and the birds that set me free?

The burning size of sirens lies.

At least we tried to make it.

At least we tried to make it.

At least we tried to make it.

At least we tried

Tapes ‘n Tapes Lines

Talking about family

Talking about trees

Driving through the tracks and cones

Brings a bitter boy to his knees

Wrap him up in coattails

Water soaked in pine

Each time we come back around

He’s wandering off and cluttering minds

Weld it up

Taking the long talk home

and my arms start grating

my mind is shaken

We walk it off

Taking the long talk home

my legs start grating

My mind is shaking it off

Golden silence courted

Bread and cheese with wine

We’ve won it and We’ll horde it

This silence in our lines

Wake me up and roll me out

Before I get to running up twice

Talking over family

Talking over trees

We’ll talk about the bad blood

Let’s talk about the thieves

Don’t wake me because I’m nervous

And I’ve been falling down

Don’t take her for a goddess

That’s not how goddess sounds

We’ll make them all return it

When the time is right

And call them to the borders

cause the war has come

I’ve been sunken from long ago

Your head is right and your body knows

you’re over faith and you’re over time

You’re over fate and you’re over lines

Tapes ‘n Tapes 10 Gallon Ascots

Ten gallon ascots and booze on your shirt

I’ll come to dinner and fight off the flirts

I know I know of wash away weekends

They leave me cold so cold so cold…

Your hats they long

Of range they’ve sung

File out at night

Shock steers with fright

Shockers and shooters

They line up for the hearse

I wear my best wig and drive off the freelings

In the cold the cold

I’m bought by the sender

And I’ve been sold for coal for coal…

Your hats they long

Of range they’ve sung

File out at night

Shock steers with fright

The show the drone

The talk the call

The need the snow

I’ll show you home

Tapes ‘n Tapes Hang Them All

Tale was full of rocks and sand

and all you ever needed was a hand

I was drawn upon your hands

and holding on for strangeness just for friends

grow [x4]

for more [x4]

and heads [x4]

will roll [x4]

are your heads on high?

you’re waitin’ for a conversation

are you gonna tow that line?

and, are you healin’? [x3]

What you might believe before

and you might believe in when the tide runs, runs

All you are the best of friends

and all you offered at all with the sides run, round

I saw [x4]

I had [x4]

These times [x4]

I roll [x2]

And when you come back, I’ll come runnin’

With your hearts set high

It’s a marriage made for condescending

Are you gonna hold that line?

And, are you holdin’, are you crimp?

I put all my heads on high

Waitin’ for a conversation

Are you gonna tow that line?

And, are you healin’, are you healin’, are you feelin’

Hang them all [x4]

Need you, needed something

hang them all [x4]

They need you, bleed for something

hang them all [x8]

Tapes ‘n Tapes Anvil

Anvil come

Anvil come

I need your

I need your Fire

Sparks and stone

Sparks and stone

As you fall

As you fall I fade

While ships Seek signs of life

They’ll have Our heads on sight

It comes

Bronze will bash

Bronze will bash

To the hills

To the survivors

Clear the plains

Clear the blame

When you run

When you run I run

Storm the shores for fame

As time the footprints fades

It comes

Now you sit

Now you sit

In your house

In your abandon

Evil bound

Evil bound

When you came

When you came I went

Banned and boarded life

The hive all shifts when time

Has come

It has come [x8]

Tapes ‘n Tapes Freak Out

Even in the morning

With the light upon your face,

I look up and show the motions I’ll use.

I can hear you breathing,

I feel the space and I…

Oh, I…

I’ll be the one you’ll never know.

Once you were the wildest man,

I’ve ever known,

Free from what the others said.

On your own.

I’ll go, I’ll go in the place you’ll never know.

Wait until your wedding day,

Then you’ll know!

Take it for your medicine,

Take what you sew!

Freak out, freak out, freak out!

I’ve been sure,

Will you look me in the eye?

Will you run from what you see?

Will you see me in the light?

I hope you do, I hope you stay!

And never leave.

Once it’s never, nothing, no

I heard you say,

Once it’s never, nothing, no

Take all you get!

Freak out, freak out, freak out!

I’ve been sure,

Will you look me in the eye?

Will you run from what you see?

Will you see me in the light?

Hope you do, I hope you stay!

Even in the morning,

Even inside,

I come on over,

And wake you in the night.

I feel you tremble,

I hear you call,

I’ll be waiting

Up inside the moment

I thought you knew,

I see you walking,

You’re turning blue,

Come up behind me and hear me say,

I’ll be holding on…for a day!

Will you look me in the eye?

Will you run from what you see?

Will you see me in the light?

Hope you do, I hope you stay!

Don’t go running from the light,

Don’t go running to the sea!

Come on up inside my mind,

I hope you go there, stay there,

Hide there, wait there!

Tapes ‘n Tapes Demon Apple

I Am the demon of the apple’s eye

Come round when your head’s on fire

We will be in touch with time

When you come into the Apple’s eye

You’re training them all, You traded them all [x8]

Crawl back when you cut course

Fall down I had an eye sore

From your sighting

We will be tired

And tied down from times

And head counts

Don’t hold your hand down

We’ll come running

When you come around the bend I’ll be someone’s time [x5]

You’re training them all, You traded them all [x16]
