Track Name: Marble Step
Standing in the thinnest air, and that too disappears
Still before an empty door, as if it never closes
There's nothing that I would ever do
To try to change your point of view
Some theories one should never test
but doing so does pass the time

Change your name and your address
Choose your brand of cigarette
Adjust I guess, with truth and jest
Masters of tree climbing

Examining the banister that stretches towards the dell
And the beauty of the marble step that guides me into hell
There's nothing that I could ever do,
ass placed high upon the spire
That time it would be better spent
trying hard to pass itself

Address the problem as it is
Paperboy burns Pyramids
Adjust, I jest, with truth I guess
Mastering the art of tree climbing
Track Name: Over the Sidewalk
Just a slow sand, I've got a free hand
I could live a whole life in the meantime
You're getting new shoes, you're sick of those two
You wouldn't say fate if you thought straight

Bought a new bike, now I'll fly
Over the sidewalk, passing the old shops
Give me the good news, give me the bad too

Write a new plan, cut my old hand
I won't live a whole life, if I never think twice
Still getting those new shoes, 'cause you're so very sick of those two
You'd never blame fate if you could just screw your head on straight

Over the sidewalk, passing the old shops
Give me the good news, give me the bad too
Over the sidewalk, passing the old shops
Give me the bad news, give me the good soon
