1.
Just go with your first thought Don't think it over You know where the body is You work twenty five hours Go home and still can't let go You know where the body is Heavy rocks and magnets Dotting all the i's You know where the body is The eyes you hide Sunglasses, looking down You know where the body is So peaceful, resting I should go home tonight I have no alibi I know where the body is The forest calls to me Under the leaves I know where the body is So peaceful, resting Piano wires in your head Rattle of birds You know where the body is Grab at the wings Humming towards sleep You know where the body is -- erin - vocal, moog bass, electric guitars michael savage - piano, keyboard grace hearn - backup vocal joel litwin - cajon

The Landing 04:49
In his tailored suit In his polished shoes If the wind was just right As he fell through the sky Where did he go? And we all look for clues In the drawing he looks like you With a pearl on his tie And the gold in his eye It’s not about the parachute He didn’t have the perfect plan It’s all about the leap of faith How well you land And I have no proof Just a feeling that it’s true In his tailored suit In his polished shoes If the wind was just right As he fell through the sky -- erin corday - vocal, electric guitar, piano michael savage - keys, additional guitars joel litwin - drums rich depaolo - bass eyvind kang - viola
3.
Silks 02:45
That was the first time I ever put on my silks You only have three rides I was standing there in my silks and I felt good! I could see all of the faces Geoff Lewis, Frankie Durr And I thought to myself all of a sudden— I’m in the same room getting changed So I walk in the parade ring and all my family’s there And they’re all saying, Go on, go on --- erin - vocal, electric guitar joel, erin & grace - intro craig - clarinet
4.
Two Weeks 04:48
Her name is Amber or Crystal or Tiffany He drives a forklift on the second nightshift at the cannery And you thought you had him pegged as a drug-runner or a gang-banger but the tattoo on his arm had little feet He said “I put it there for my daughter 'cause her time on this earth— it was two weeks” I found myself staring at the silver nail polish Thinking about my horoscope and now I know I didn’t get my wish Maybe I should pray to the ghost of Mother Theresa, help me oh let it go, it’s too much Times like these I wish I could believe in God so I wouldn’t judge How long will it be Till you forgive me? -- erin - vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, wurlitzer, marxophone michael savage & erin - emi piano joel litwin - drums rich depaolo - bass
5.
Orange Chair 03:11
I should go home tonight She's waiting for me there In the porch lamp light In the orange chair Memory fails me I can't remember where I started thinking about her Oh and in my dream She is always alive Oh and she'll never know As long as I don't tell her -- erin corday - vocals, organ, keyboard, guitar, jacket zipper michael savage - beat, synth, organ
6.
Hummingbird 04:07
Hummingbird caught in the rafters Flying around the room Chased her around for an hour Hit her with the broom She fell, spiraling down Wings a blur of brown And you were that bird Small as compared Your heart beat so fast Your hands spiders and glass -- erin - electric guitar, vocals, wurlitzer, pump organ michael savage - acoustic & electric guitars joel litwin - drums rich depaolo - bass dave carter - trumpet
7.
Bee Song 03:01
Each in its wax room Will become soon A buzzing bee And on the tenth night My very first flight A reconnaissance Zzz, zzz, zzz, zzz I am a worker bee You want to save me Ha, ha, ha! My strange dance Will show you the way And the distance To the honey Ha, Ha, Ha, Happy -- erin - vocals, electric guitar, nylon-string guitar, e-bow guitar
8.
I wish I could be there Then, when you were there To see you seeing that Rodin Myself, I wouldn't look I'd turn away, my back to that sun watching how light falls on the beloved one You’ll say, we'll go back there and camp out in front of the unfinished Gates of Hell where the most beautiful thing you ever saw was also the most terrifying-- The Beloved One Someday I'll stand in line and brave the crowds and see with you I want to believe in God It's not that I’m afraid of death I just want to keep watching this with you And the most terrifying thing I ever felt was letting you change me into the beloved one -- erin - vocals, electric guitar, celeste michael savage - wurlitzer, electric guitar joel litwin - drums rich depaolo - bass
9.
Head back and your eyes closed In the back seat, in your dirty clothes If you're breathing, only God knows What friends brought you here? Death would not stop for you He says you're half-hearted about that too As if Life said, “I'm not through with you, I'm taking you back” Don't look down Just hold on We will be there soon I am strong enough to carry you You're still angry and you're still alone The world's still fucked up and your father's still gone And you were right, and you were wrong Don't you get it? -- erin - vocals, electric guitar, xylophone michael savage - piano, piano strings

Fuera 02:29
De que se trata— El hombre (un hombre? yo no se) Cuantos años tiene? Setenta y siete Acaba de escribir un libro Acaba de tener un hijo Si yo fuera soltera y talvez mas vieja De que se trata— El libro (un libro? yo no se) sobre la salud y la muerte (Lyrics adapted from an office i-chat, two coworkers texting in Spanish about a very dashing septuagenarian.) Who is that?! Some man... (el? un?) How old is he? Seventy seven (!) He just finished writing a book and recently became a father (!) If I were single and perhaps a little older... What’s the book about? Some book, I don’t know… something about healthy living and death -- erin - vocals, nylon-string guitar michael - casio keyboard
11.
Undertow 03:29
There’s a strong undertow I’ve gone down underneath my own pride Oh my—where did I lose sight I try not to hold too tight Try so hard not to drift from you Where did I lose sight of ground? Don’t forget I am one of your kin Come on, we’ve got that long oar We’ve been down like this before Don’t forget what you came here for You are tired, just like me There’s refuge across the sea -- erin - vocals, electric guitar, piano, nylon-string guitar joel litwin - drums rich depaolo - bass eyvind kang - viola
