Head for the Shallow Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Rousseau
1. O.G. (4:21)
instrumental
2. Focus Pocus (5:19)
Take my advice
Don't come any closer
Don't you come any closer
You're giving us all away

Hold on with your clenched fingers
In the way that it shines
With it so bad it's no easy thing
Turning red into white

Take my advice
Don't come any closer
Don't you come any closer
You're giving us all away

Hold on with your clenched fingers
In the way that it shines
With it so bad it's no easy thing
Turning red into white

Keep it and throw mine away
Keep it and throw mine away

Sail the coast
See that you blazed the coast
(?)
I can't get this ship turned around

Calm down
3. White Pizazz (4:38)
Creeping, we're gaining an inch at a time
Can't believe you don't believe me
These consciences they talk to themselves
And the bruises to show

Eyes that are turning completely white
Completely white
Completely white
Completely white

I can't think that that's coming back
How can you say without feeling
How can you go when you run out of time

All of the pieces you need
I've got a few you can borrow
Worried the weather tomorrow will bring
Head for the shallow

How can you say without feeling
How can you go when you run out of time

All of the pieces you need
I've got a few you can borrow
Worried the weather tomorrow will bring

Creeping, we're gaining an inch at a time
Can't believe you don't believe me
These consciences they talk to themselves
And the bruises to show

Completely white
Completely white
Completely white
Completely white

Head for the shallow
All of the pieces you need
I've got a few you can borrow
Worried the weather tomorrow will bring
Head for the shallow

I've got a few you can borrow
Worried the weather tomorrow will bring

How can
How can you ... when you run out of time
4. Stareadactyl (2:59)
Keep with your digging we're looking for fossils
hopefully someday we'll find the impossible link

(All Repeat x4)
5. Easter Romantic (5:09)
Scratch at the door, they offer no help
Open the curtains and see for yourself
We're not hesitating, we're biding our time
Wait for the moment we jump into line

Where is that infantry

We scratch at the door, they offer no help
Open the curtains and see for yourself
Women and children come bearing their teeth
(?) deliver relief
Gauchos, can send us out to sea

We've blown this all aside
I hear them still inside
Sound the alarm its all that we need
Garrisons bloodied, stomachs to feed

We've ventured too far, we can never go back
Courage and spades, numbers we lack
It's not that it matters, we just didn't see
Sound the alarms, steady she be

(All Repeat x2)

Scratch at the door, they offer no help
Open the curtains and see for yourself
Women and children come bearing their teeth

Gauchos, can send us out to sea

We've blown this all aside
I hear them still inside
Sound the alarm its all that we need
Garrisons bloodied, stomachs to feed

We've ventured too far, we can never go back
Courage and spades, numbers we lack
It's not that it matters, we just didn't see
Sound the alarms, steady she be
6. Technically Electrified (3:47)
PAINT BY THE NUMBERS
COMPARED TO THE OTHERS
IT JUST SEEMS SO TERRIBLY CLOSE

CUE UP THE LAUGH TRACK
I WANT MY OWN LIFE BACK
AND ALL OF THE JOKES THAT WE HAD

THIS ONES A KEEPER
YOU CAN'T MAKE IT SWEETER
BY FILLING IT OVER THE TOP

MAKE MINE BLACK, DON'T GO EASY (x2)

i'm happy and flattered a
and nothing else matters
You've given us all a head start

enough with the fodder
why even bother
we know in the end

these things will keep falling apart (x4)

7. Eis Hexe (4:05)
Only noone would stop!

We did not play to see Banshees, and Ghosts running down
Only replayed

nobody console me just watch us play
8. Off Off Broadway (5:17)
Keeping it down
Hold it away
This is a one horse town

Don't make a job of this feeling
Down, hold it away

Might as well plant it's all gone to seed
Wait 'til tomorrow it's grown into weeds
Might as well plant, plant, plant, plant
Might as well plant it, we got all we need

In reference to those days we're leaving
I'd blame you but its not your fault
Buried alive while they're bleeding
Maybe well never live through this night

We don't know this and
We don't know this and
We don't know
