Track Name: Green
The color of an awning
with the number of the building
when I left the snow was falling
and right away melting
I could hear just part of a song
Just a few notes of a song
I couldn't think what song it was

Green might be her dress in a story
Green might be the endless worry
Green might be certain people dying
Green might be an airplane flying

The color of a bottle of aftershave
That one liked and the other liked
The one is gone, the other is dead
The bottle for some reason, for some stupid reason
Keeps appearing in a dream

Green might be her dress in a story
Green might be the endless worry
Green might be certain people dying
Green might be an airplane flying

Why won't it leave me alone?
Track Name: Down Some Road
I'm the other one
I'm the other one
I'm the other one
Nothing ever changed

I'm your stolen car
I'm your stolen car
I'm your stolen car
Never going home

I'm that heavy snow
I'm that heavy snow
I'm that heavy snow
Always falling down
Track Name: Sunday is a Terrorist (Like you and Me)
Time runs one way
Now every day is Sunday
I just can't let it go

Sunday is a terrorist
Like you and me
Some day is a terrorist
Like you and me
