Track Name: Not From Body
Early in the morning
of this pearly prickly pear
I found a way
I'm ok I'm ok I'm ok
I had a long day
it was harmful
to the things I had to say
but I'm ok
I guess you can't plan every piece
but you can
plan
to make peace with that
And somehow
in the clamour of it all
I learned to love
not from body
but from mind
Track Name: Auntie Why
You walked in
so frighteningly thin
It was my 28th birthday
Poor sweet Auntie Why
where have you been?
do you remember
how we love you?

Well living, yeah it's so strange and cool
but darling,
there's a most important rule
You are one of us
Your feather will float down
you'll find your answer on the ground
and feel alive at once
Feather floating down
you'll make a plan to grow around
that cruel black hole

Well Auntie Who
now it's Christmas
and I've finally seen you laugh
and laugh and laugh
your feather's floating down
you'll find your answer on the ground
do you see it yet?
feather floating down
you'll find your answer on the ground
you will see you
Track Name: King of the Bees
I'm the King of the Bees
and you are the Giver of the Seasons
I float and spin, a hazard in your breeze
You should consider loving me

Everyone is coming home before they're ready
Why do we do it?
Spinning round this town for years
No one knows
where we are
or where we're going to
but we don't mind
we're ok
we're alive
and we observe

You can find happiness
in the strangest place
You can find happiness
in a woman's face
You can find happiness
in an empty space
You can find happiness
alone

Everyone is cloudy in their mind's today
why can't we think straight?
Maybe you can meet me up at does
I think of her
when I think I might be happy
and I read her
in the morning
she helps me think
not sleep

You can find happiness
in the strangest place
You can find happiness
in a woman's writing
You can find happiness
in a woman's mind
You can find happiness
in a woman's kindness
You can find happiness
in the ways you miss her

But now I know

I'm the King of the Bees
You are the Giver of the Seasons
I float and spin, a hazard in your breeze
You should consider loving me
Track Name: Your Own Afterlife
Don't forget to take the piss
out of those you miss
I mean their memories
Memories can laugh, you see
And don't forget to learn some humour
before you say goodbye
Place it behind your eye
I mean `up in the sky'

'Cause we all hold our own
afterlife for those we've known
An abstract, synaptic model of
everyone you've ever loved

You're still alive in my mind
the only way I ever knew you
You're still alive in my mind
the only way we know each other
Track Name: Josefin the Writer
Josefin the Writer
has books locked in her head
soon must release them onto paper
She has me worried
about where our thoughts do go
when they've not been named
but left in mind
to turn like youth gone old
Why do our bodies
tire so much faster than our minds do
and where does love go
when it splinters away?

She is the place I send my mind
when I need to see
things not as they are
but as I long for them to be

Josefin the Writer
is collecting information
on the mechanics of a memory
Where will she find love?
Will it stay with Johan
or another
or will she find
a reader like me?

She is the place I send my mind
when I need to see
things not as they are
but as I long for them to be
Josefin, you are the place I send my mind
when I need to see
things not as they are
but as I long for them to be
Track Name: Looking Over You
Looking over you
I see all I ever knew
Looking over you
I see all I'll ever need to know
Looking over you
I see us laughing, lying in your bed
Looking over you
I know I'll be there
at least till I am dead

And what then?
I know that I don't know
but if there is a way
I will find you every day
Lost in the call
we'll both just disappear
and learn to leave our minds behind

I want to leave my mind behind

Looking over you
I see all I ever knew
Looking over you
I see all I'll ever need to know
Looking over you
I see us laughing, on a late night train
Looking over you
I know I love you
Track Name: Through and Through
Your comfort casts a shadow
on my aging heart
I'd tell you everything
if I knew how

You can hurry through a lifetime
maybe forget your part
But you can't return to love
you never knew

When I was a lonely boy
I kept lives in my head
People I would love
people like you

So don't you worry about me
being so worried about you
It's just the way that I was made
to love you through and through
Track Name: Let Love Be
It's not that I am over
all this movement in my brain
It's just that I'm a friend
and friend, are you ok?

If loving me
keeps a mind from feeling free
then just let love be
But if loving me
makes a mind less hazy
don't you let love be

It's not that I'm collected
I'm kind of stagnant, kind of changed
It's just that I love you
Are you ok?

Love is mind and body
Track Name: Who You Are For Me
I see you changing who you are for me
I can't let you, I love you too much
I see you changing who you want to be
I can't let you, I'd miss you too much
It is you alone who matters in this way
My sea so shaken, you are everywhere
My love for you, a tree so strong and green
Gulping for shape, giver of the morning.
