Track Name: health
this is what health looks like you cannot buy it in a magazine it is not the same for you as it is for me
this is what life looks like it is tall and it is thin and it is very fast this is not what life looks like it is gold in your future it is old in your past
and if you search for the moving numbers and if you look for the intersecting sets and if you search and search for all the answers and if you find that you are not there yet
Track Name: honest lawyer
get yourself up you can do it if you try i know you it is not insurmountable it is a new day

miles and miles of wires and wires and the endless detritus of our society
this is what we have got

my best friend is an honest lawyer he's a needle in the hay i would do anything for him o simon
my best friend has a dog named fido we take him for walks in the park on a sunny saturday o simon

i know you i know you you insert yourself wherever you wind up

ooo siren song simon with your box of cheetos and your bright blue sneakers i would sit with you on the high-school bleachers simon it is a new day it is a new day
Track Name: basic

basic basic basic basic a mode of understanding you keep it on the kitchen table i will comprehend if i am able you keep it in the kitchen cupboard till next year this is the takeoff and this is the landing
you keep it there you keep it to yourself
this is the simple answer this is the only one this is what you make for yourself this is what we have undone

a slow descending line and the waiting at the door and the crying for hours for hours nayyar you have the softest way you're my grandma you're taking care of my family

a slow descending line and the crying at the door this is what you came here for nayyar you're so gentle you're taking care of my family you're taking care of my grandma nayyar
Track Name: shitty winter
well i've been walking around and everything that i see
it has been getting me down making me feel like there is nothing left for me
i see the birds and the bees and the flowers and trees and the sun is shining in the sky
but whenever i try to leave my house i feel like i am just shy shy shy shy shy shy shy
and now the summer is here and never you fear it's gonna get better its gotta get better
but i can not conceal that i cannot deal with this stupid type of weather
it's been a pretty pretty pretty pretty shitty shitty winter

i see the birds and the bees and the flowers and trees and everything's looking fine
i'm leaving the house again and i'm feeling like it's a shine shine shine
.... i cannot deal with this stupid stupid type of weather
it's been a shitty shitty shitty shitty winter

i spent three weeks on my own
three weeks crying on my own at home
three weeks feeling so alone
three weeks feeling like i'm waiting by the telephone
and it has to get better
i cannot deal with this type of weather
and now the sun is coming up a little early early
just a little early
and i'm leaving my body

oh it's been a pretty shitty shitty winter
ooh, ooh

cos now the summer is here so never you fear it's gonna get better it's gonna get better
i see the birds and the bees and the flowers and trees and
it's gonna be better it's gonna be better
and now the summer is here so never you fear
it's gonna be a better year

oh it's been a pretty shitty winter
but not a little splinter in my heart
