Track Name: Dork Mansion
Got a lot of rooms with a lot of corners
We can stand in them and never get bored
It's our Dork Mansion

Come on over, there's drums in the basement
Stay as long as you want
Just don't wake the mailman
It's our Dork Mansion

Turn the radio on so you don't have to think
Write some words in invisible ink
Don't remember my name?
OK, oh well, we don't need anyone else
Just me and the dog and the band in the basement
That's enough for me, it's all what you make it
We made Dork Mansion.
Track Name: Post Show
Here I am, just trying to breathe
Go ahead and name all your streets after me
Just pumping blood into my hard heart
Gimme a horse in the park
Gimme a plaque with a light for the dark

And now I'm dreaming, now I'm lingering
Hot blood turned to rust
Skin over muscles and muscles over bones
Overgrown, caked in dust
There ain't nothing to see that I haven't already seen
Just a crowded room
And the empty street
And me
The space between

Here I am, just come off stage
Go ahead and lay all your flowers at my feet
All the weight, too much to lift
No expectations, everything's a gift
But I keep counting every penny I don't get

And now I'm dreaming, now I'm lingering
Hot blood turned to rust
Skin over muscles and muscles over bones
Overgrown, caked in dust
There ain't nothing to see that I haven't already seen
Just a crowded room
And the empty street
And me
The space between
Track Name: Senses
Like a dog that doesn't know what to do
When he catches a car
that was the day that you met her
And she don't care where you are now.

And everything that you taste and see
Smell and hear and feel
Nothing's worth a song
You've been paying attention
Contemplating shit you know is all wrong

I said, Hey friend, don't worry
I know here, maybe her love's gonna strengthen.
And you said, No no no, you don't know
And then you told me about last weekend.

And everything that she said and did
And you don't even believe that she ever stopped to think
Whether this was lasting
Track Name: Mistakes Were Made
We all are singers here
But no duets in over a year
I am not innocent but the victim of my own experiments

Don't waste my time
Out of sight out of mind
For nickels on the dime
I kept you in line
Now it's time for you to go

Take off the leaves, glue them back on the trees
I know mistakes were made
Take all your cash
Keep it under you mattress and go to sleep
But who needs to sleep?
Just walk around with me

Why did we take apart
The symmetry of head and heart
No one is listening
We're speaking, our lies are works of art

What do you mean if you need friends you're weak
I've learned to separate my needs from my aches
Now it's time you did the same

Take off the leaves, glue them back on the trees
I know mistakes were made
Take all your cash
Keep it under you mattress and go to sleep
But who needs to sleep?
Just walk around with me
Track Name: Beaches
You always go to far out for me
Out in the deepest sea
And I cut my feet on the rocks and the sand
Staying where I can stand

Out in the place where the ocean and sky
Meet, where you'll ever lie
Sending your waves away to the shore
Me always asking for more

Your message on the wind and white of the waves
Your message so clear, that's why I stay

You open up your veins right into me
I'll never be a part of you, so please
Never be on the land
Without dreaming about the sea.
