Track Name: Anti Dote
i'll wait yes i'll wait yes i will
for the moment to set and be still
but i know it's gone away

i'll stay i'll stay i'll stay still
watch you watch your eyes they can kill
but i won't move away

the life of the party's so fine
you'll sing her but you'll only whine
you're stuck in time

the beloved drink honey and wine
the rest of us must wait in line
we're stuck in time
Track Name: Fourth of July
like molasses dawns this day
you and me, honey, that's the way
summer's steaming, slow and blue and gray
every time you turn to me, i just don't know what to say

let's throw a party, the fourth of july
we love our country and we don't want to die
be the hostess, i'm too shy
hold my hand, honey, i don't want to die

i know i'm just a guest
but hold me like a breath
i just can't keep you off my mind
though you're no good for me

morning, come over, your hair all in knots
crying on my shoulder, i want all you want
stay in bed till sunday, talk ourselves in knots
binge on love and kindness, wish for what we got

i know i'm just a guest
but hold me like a breath
i just can't keep you off my mind
though you're no good for me

looking at me with star-spangled eyes
i'm so mixed up in your sighs, in your lies
take me inside to make apple pies
kiss you in your apron till it dies

i know i'm just a guest
but hold me like a breath
i just can't keep you off
Track Name: Miriam
pull me out of the miry myriad
on your fiery chariot
fly me over the heads of the crowd
if i cry out, you're my savior
just ignore my behavior
i'll try not to be too obnoxious and loud

take me out and i won't look back
i've just lost the knack
for living easy and desensitized
let me just find a shirt to wear
i no more can bear
this dying slowly, this feeding the flies

miriam miriam
i'm feeling weary, um...
there's not much else to say
just take me tonight
in your arms that, so white,
can erase all the weight of the day

may these shackles be unbroken
love unspoken
that's the love that i love to give
now i'm climbing in this sycamore
crying nevermore
you're just the dove that i need to live

miriam miriam
i'm feeling weary, um...
there's not much else to say
just take me tonight
in your arms that, so white,
can erase all the weight of the day

miriam miriam
in my delirium
i fix my eyes on the moon above
i garble my words
i'm trampled by herds
but i know all i need is your love
