"Katabatic" Lyrics

When the power fails
And the walls come down
Pickin' flowers in the rubble
That's where I will be found

When the levy breaks
And the ground gives way
I'll be swimmin' down your street
Just another perfect day

Ain't no need to feel pathetic
Don't go aneurismatic
Everything is katabatic

And when your wishing star becomes a meteor
Aimin' at your house
Baby don't you grouse
Just take a page from Johnny's Big Book of Advice
'Cuz I'm cold as ice

If the lightning breaks
Its only rule
I just make like Tesla
Baby I'm no fool

You might think I got it wrong
But if I'm not dead
I must be crazy strong

Ain't no need to feel pathetic
Just embrace the copacetic
Everything is katabatic

Stand in front of the freezer, wheezer!
Suck on an ice cube, noob!
You must chill, daffodil!

"Do This For Me" Lyrics

Lemme lay out the situation
The house I'm living in
Is made of blame and condemnation
I'm lookin' to move out
When the goin's tough
That's what I'm all about

Now you could be
A big help to me
Lemme slip on in
So I can start all over again

Let's explore the opportunity
I'm in your hands
Get a grip and think what you could make of me
You're on top in this scenario
But when the time is right
I'll be your impresario

Do this for me
It's a simple thing
For a complex girl
Do this for me
And I'll make sure
That I do right by you

Take your time on this decision
I got nowhere to be
And the sun is barely risen
All while you're thinkin'
I'll be down here
Persuadin' and convincin'

"Winter Love" Lyrics

Don't gimme that bit about
"Every thing in its season"
That's only numbers and blocks on a page
Don't try to tell me there's no
Particular reason I won't go peacefully into the next phase

Don't tell me you don't recall
The first day of Springtime
The way we met was such a sweet cliche
Can't believe you would forget
The height of last summer
And how we spent each hour
Of the longest day

Don't pretend
You didn't plan this from the start
By Winter's end
Passion frozen in your heart
I never said I'd be an actor in this play
I don't intend
To walk away as winter fades to gray

I don't believe that you
Have found yourself a new prince
There's no one anywhere in the world like me
Don't tell me he was a surprise
Don't try to convince
What makes you think I even wanna be free

Don't care if the air you breathe
Comes cold from your lips
Don't matter to me if the trees have lost all their leaves
There ain't no golden bough
And I'll remain your king

"Rockefeller Center" Lyrics

You say it's a waste
Wasting my time
Maybe it's true
I hide behind rhymes

I can't defend
My wandering heart
Trapdoors and tripwire
In all that I start

If I stray from this meandering path
Just to keep you from fading into my past
Every kiss and embrace will be worse than worthless
We'll dig us a hole from running in circles
Hiding From my Rockefeller Center

My windmill to tilt
My albatross to train
I don't need you to get it
If it's all the same
Would you rather I thanked you
Or held you to blame?

I'm forever grateful for all you've endured
But you're like a reward that's also a lure
You made me go deep and before I could surface
I lost my way and mislaid my purpose
To find
My Rockefeller Center

"Unscrew You" Lyrics

I remember that day
Just like it was yesterday
Maybe that's because it was just like
The day that came before

That's when you showed up but
I was not expecting guests
You smiled and said it came down to right and East
Or left and West

I made my own decision
And I took you in my arms
Now I haven't got the slightest clue
Where the girl I knew has gone

I wanna unscrew you
I wanna get inside your
Get inside your head
Unscrew you
Instead of making love
Make some sense instead

Every branch is split in half and half again and every road goes
Everywhere at once with you
Every time I see your face it's like the girl I love's
Replaced with someone new

You astonish me
I mean you knock me on my heels
Then a sparrow falls or someone calls and
I can't tell what's real

What's it like for you to be
The soul of mutability
How do you decide which to apply
Variations on a theme

(Repeat chorus)

Is it too much to ask
Do I call you to task
Which lover stayed?
Who are you today?

(Repeat chorus to end)
