Track Name: east side
world of fog and brake lights,
coffee at the wrong time of the day,
and an hour or two with friends
you don't remember why you're friends with —
"it's late, it's quite late,
it's getting very late."

the east side jerks awake.
lights go on in a hundred little rooms
and the overpasses coil
like copper wire around some secret center
and look for one to tell their secret to,
but it isn't you, it isn't you, it isn't you.
Track Name: (leaving midnight mass)
there were hymns and prayers at midnight;
i got lost in the houndstooth pattern of a dress
and fumbled at my prayers, distracted like a child,
and dreamed of my name in script across a record sleeve.
and a priest waved his blessing over us.
and a priest waved his blessing over us.

in the car home i am spread out in the backseat
and flickering radio songs roll their way over us
and that low northern city winked its lights at us
and the world waved a blessing over us.
the world waved a blessing over us.
the world waved
and we waved back.
