Track Name: Restless, Tired, Uneasy
how many ways can i say i'm restless, i'm tired, uneasy
i'm bored, i'm thinking of leaving
of running, but not quite away
just far enough so i can see what you see when you're looking at me
then maybe i can let go
keep the thoughts from closing in
you said you can't see the forest for the trees
or was it the trees for the forest?
"we've got time but this world's not for us"
you said as we walked away from fires i don't think we started
and if i had a hand i'm sorry
i know that we'll find home eventually
in the forest or the trees
i used to think that you and i could get along
until i saw the way you acted on that stage
like you were too good for this town
well, the college kids all lined up to buy your overpriced stuff
i finished my beer and went home
and thought about how you said you can't see the forest for the trees
or was it the trees for the forest?
"we've got time but this world's not for us"
you said as we walked away from fires i don't think we started
and if i had a hand i'm sorry
i know that we'll find home eventually
we're so happy when we're drinking
we're so happy when we're singing
we're happy riding in the van
but i'm so lonely on the west coast, so tired by the east coast
thinking maybe i could, thinking maybe i should have just stayed home
how many ways can i say i'm restless, i'm tired, uneasy
i'm bored, i'm thinking of leaving
of running, but not quite away
just far enough so i can see
was it the forest, was it just some trees?
thinking maybe i should just stay out of nature entirely
Track Name: Static Electricity
you used to be happier
i know that we are searching for someone to outlast us
you used to be happier
i can't believe you put up with what you put up with
to keep from being lonely
but i know you
you believe (in) the way a crowded room fills with energy
me, i just see no place to breathe
when you are wide-eyed, i am asleep
saw your face from across the room
you looked miserable, i looked confused
how'd we get to the point where we feel so alone in such close company?
you used to be happier
i know that we are searching for someone to pass the time with
now you seem happier
i can't believe you put up with that shit for so long
but i know you
you believe in everyone else, i just believe in myself
so stubborn it seems, sometimes, to me
i'm still drowning, just treading my feet
saw your face from across the room
we're both still miserable, so what's the use?
so selfish, it seems, is the life for me
i won't get shocked by static electricity
