Love What You Made 

I'm not a killer 
I'm not a sinner 
I'm just the one you made 
don't look at me now 
don't look at me now 
just love me before I fade 

see what I did? 
see what I did? 
I can't control myself 
see what I hid? 
it's under the lid 
it's under the broken shelf 

see what I did? 
I did! 

sorry to Hawkeye 
sorry to Dad 
sorry to everyone mad 
fistful of fur 
fistful of shirt 
fistful of something hurt 

fistful of sorry 

you made me 
but you don't own me 
I'm free 

everyone runs 
everyone hides 
everything breaks when I touch it 
the first thing I learned 
the one word I heard was no 

love what you made

Peanut  Butter Hike 

hut, hut, baby 
peanut butter . . . hike! 
sassafras, honey 
dancing turnpike 

I see you 

take me out wide 
take me twice as long 

Lower Nine basement 
centimeter keeper 
Internets on Sundays 
bacon baby beater 

I see you 

take your time going 
hurry on back 

blame it on the war 
blame it on the poor 
blame it on the whore 
blame it all the more

Your Life Is Like a Movie 

so this is your life 
you make the soundtrack 
your life is like a movie 
you can take any role 

so get on with it 
just get on with it 

so this is what you get 
you didn’t ask for it 
your life is like a lottery 
you can win but only if you play 

so get on with it 
just get on with it 
so get on with it 
just get on with it 

every day is a turning point 
every loss starts something new 
every love can last forever 
but only if . . . it changes you 

so this is your love—don’t worry 
your heart’s big enough 
your love is like the open road 
you can drive anywhere 

so get on with it 
just get on with it 
so get on with it 
just get on with it

Five O'Clock Charlie 

there is no freedom 
there is no forgiving sun 
there is no freefall for me 

we were your family 
we were your flesh and your blood 
you were the flower's fury 

what do you want now? 
what do you want me to say? 
what should I feel now for you . . . for me 

how should the world look? 
how should I look at the world? 
how should I let you through? 

I put my pen down 
undo every word I could write 
I put my head down for you . . . for me

The Trick 

the trick 
the sun’s glare 
the girl 
she’s left bare 

run red 
the river 
the man 
he’s seen her 

one blind 
one way out 
one wish 
one last doubt 

goose flesh 
fallen star 
it holds 
then breaks hard
