Track Name: Babel
Look forth from whence you came
And the world you left behind
Strike forth on fresh terrain
Get a grip, man
You're alright
Track Name: That's enough, Esme. You're making a scene.
Teeny tiny tipped white toes
Teeny tiny tipped white toes

Teeny tiny tipped white toes, she’s got a troublin’ machine
It’s killin’ everywhere she goes
And it always makes her make a scene

She’s a viscous green eyed lady.

She’ll snag you and you’ll bleed
Pretend to be in need of anything you ever thought you wanted
Watch out!
‘Cause she’ll be smackin’ her teeth as she picks out the meat from betwixt your bones.

She’s a viscous green eyed lady...ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay (and so on)...
Track Name: A Recurring Point of Clarity
Wake up little sleepy head
Don’t worry, don’t worry
Before our eyes go red
From worry, from worry

I could almost believe you were real - you said we were wise
Got no more holidays to make up for these lousy feelings left inside. So go on and just let it all fall where it may and watch it slide.

I could almost believe you were real - you said we were wise.
Got no more holidays to make up for these lousy feelings left inside. So go on and just let it all fall where it may and watch it slide.

I’ll hold your head under the water
If you hold mine, if you hold mine
Let go of our ancient father’s rhymes
We still have time, we still have time

And we’ll wash away in the dregs
And we’ll be just fine

And I didn’t miss anyone, and I didn’t miss you...
