Tamer Animals / Other Lives

Lyrics

Solitary motion, in the wake of an avalanche
Deer in the headlights, there goes a weaker one
He’s listenin’ in the fast gaze, I don’t care now to see the way
Do you hear the silence? I was far too late

Oh living for the city, and it’s always troubling
to keep it in the hot lane, I don’t care about no scenery
and you run from it then, now you can’t escape, cause it’s all you see
But we’re all just an end to a simple thing, and it’s all you see, and it’s all you see

We’re just tamer animals
We’re just tamer animals

Solitary motion, in the wake of an avalanche
We too ka hit then, trying to see if you hold it in
and you run from it then, now you can’t escape, cause it’s all you see
But we’re all just an end to a simple thing, and it’s all you see, and it’s all you see

We’re just tamer animals
We’re just tamer animals
We’re just tamer animals

Lyrics

I was in the dark age
Searching for the ones in my life
I’m so far away
But I had hit the ground runnin
Steady as you go, I don’t mind
I’m still here today
Oh, spouting hymns and all’s in them
And forever target, when it ain’t so kind

But it feels like forever
When your mind turns to fiction

And I had took the long way
and I was in the heat, and I don’t mind
I’m so far away

But it feels like forever
When you mind turns to fiction

Imagine the darks from the skull
In a night without sleep, vibration comes, first suit I had in months without feet
Spouting hymns and all’s in them
And forever target, when it ain’t so kind

But it feels like forever,
When your mind turns to fiction

Lyrics

She orders her food
She stares at the boy in the back
She’s falling in love
He’s bending the curve of his back
Sipping his soda

He’s looking for fries
There’s always some left in the bag
The light from above
Is fading an inch from his eyes
Sipping his soda

When you feel that alone
It’s hard to tell the difference
Between being alone and being unwanted
When you feel that alone
Just remember, remember
I’m waiting for you
Waiting for you

They’re living a lie
The mirror is ugly and fat
There’s nothing to love
And no one will know ’till I die
What I was meant for

When you feel that alone
It’s hard to tell the difference
Between being alone and being unwanted
When you feel that alone
Remember, remember
I’m waiting for you
Yeah I’m waiting for you
Somewhere waiting for you
Someone waiting for you

So the question is not “why?”
The question is when you can answer “why?”
When you can answer yourself “why?”
You’ll be where you want when you answer “why not?”

I was giving the whole thing up
But I didn’t know what the whole thing was yet
And I thought I was sure to die
But I hadn’t even begun to start life

I’m losing a good friend now
He’s walking around on the Mexican border
And now I’m finding a brand new town
And finding the sound that will kill my borders and now I’m

Waiting for you
Yeah I’m waiting for
Yeah I’m waiting for you
Yeah I’m waiting for you

Lyrics

Your days are watching a light show and swimming in music
And learning the functions of the brain
I know this was me but I can’t remember
I still don’t know what’s going on after twenty years

Quinn, I walk in to check you out, it’s like your mother told me
When you’re breathing, asleep, you barely even move
You see colors all around, but you don’t know what they mean
When you started to live, I started living
When you started to live, I started living

Yeah, your arms are like branches, your legs are like bamboo
You grow like those dinosaur sponge things
Where will you go and where will you be?
I guess we all wind up at home again

Christy Quinn, I walk in to check you out, it’s like your mother told me
When you’re breathing, asleep, you barely even move
You see colors all around, but you don’t know what they mean
When you started to live, I started living
When you started to live, I started living

I think we’re gonna make it
Just stay right there and wait it out
When you can talk I’ll have a home
When we can talk I’ll have a home

Quinn, I walk in to check you out, it’s like your mother told me
When you’re breathing, asleep, you barely even move
You see colors all around, but you don’t know what they mean
When you started to live, I started living
When you started to live, I started living

I think we’re gonna make it
Just stay right there and wait it out
When we can talk I’ll have a home
When we can talk I’ll have a home
