01 – We Should Self Unite (3:19)

should we allow
our love to be pulled down
and gather in a bulb
and slowly grow more round

if our worries were to grow
exceed a certain size
should we self detach
no we should self unite

e to the i psi
cosine plus i sine
sway with me tonight
i’m yours of course you’re mine

should we align
perhaps fall out of phase
should we multiply
or walk our separate ways

when our hearts begin to grow
exceed a certain size
should we self detach
no we should self unite

e to the i psi
cosine plus i sine
sway with me tonight
i’m yours of course you’re mine

02 – How Are You? (2:19)

when we sleep –i sleep
when we dream –i dream
our impossible lucid dream
of living in a practice space
of living in the library with me

when we wake –i wake
when we reach –i reach
reach for our alarm
turn it off
make a cup of coffee, put our
feet inside our socks inside our

our love, it draws, it draws us close
close like protein fold chaperones
close like gravity
like living at the library with me

our love, it grows, it grows like mold
like those holes in our favorite clothes
like the universe, iguanas and
our impending sense of

03 – Song For The Thrills Of Nuptials (2:14)

and now a pair we make
love and do partake
of the thrills of nuptials
on this our wedding day

so let’s bind our hands with rings
let’s tie our hearts with strings
and were we tuned and made to sway
oh i know the chord we’d play

04 – Who Knew It Was A Tic (0:55)

the chorus we repeated who knew it was a tic
the money we needed we just blew through it
our neighbors oh they party as if we don’t exist
our money got deleted we must do with less

05 – Gravity (2:59)

an apple and a half moon
feel the same way when they move
can’t help it, what they do
’cause they’re subject
they’re subject to
what keeps the earth going around the sun
you call it gravity, i call it love

i look out the window
on a plane to Chicago
all the people down below
have far less
far to fall
what keeps the earth going around the sun
you call it gravity, i call it love

since we feign no hypotheses
we must conclude that we agree
there is a force that acts across
the distance between two bodies
because there’s a force that acts across
the distance between two bodies

at our tiny dinner table
there’s an ever so slight pull
can’t explain it but i’m thankful
that there’s something
there’s something
that keeps the earth going around the sun
you call it gravity, i call it love
what keeps the earth going around the sun
you call it gravity, i call it love

06 – Song For The Seasons Of Our Lives (2:51)

the chlorophyl
does as it will
and to my delight
i marry you in the spring time
of our lives

as the days grow long
our roots grow strong
join hands my friend
and i’ll work with you in the summer time
of our lives

and then it comes to this
for we’re deciduous
draw near my dear
and i’ll care for you in the autumn time
of our lives

and then the bitter cold
as we grow old
close your eyes sleep tight
and i’ll lay with you in the winter time
