Track Name: California Yew
Sigh once, you're giving the wrong sign by breathing in and
Being a bitch on a rail line, you're losing it in a
Bottomless pit made from cinder, lit with candle light
That shows white roots from winter
You're a bird of night

Spread your wings and aim forwards
Then afterwards look for love to sustain you
California Yew

When can I move out of caramel, it's easy to say whilst
Chimes haunt the days like a death knell, pine away
Transient or forevermore, lead me to the
Venusian poison heavens, I'm in queue
I'm in queue
I'm in queue

Spread your wings and aim forwards
Then afterwards look for love to sustain you
California Yew

Spread your wings and aim forwards
Then afterwards look for love to sustain you
California, California Yew

I'll carry you
I'll carry you
I'll carry you

I'll carry you (Ooh)
I'll carry you (Ooh)
I'll carry you (Ooh)
I'll carry you (Ooh)

Oh, yeah
Track Name: Slumberland
Slowly blinking eyes of yours
Scaffolding your veins, making you bite
I enter in the yellow faced walls
Well they can touch the sides of me to melt away

We're gently walking on our toes to an empty ballroom
With the waltz playing stars to carry your heart, just melt away

Don't believe a word I say
No one tells you what to do
Accept yourself, except today

You're only young at heart
Needle angst and a dirty charm
Armed and harmful to yourself
And I want to say all the things that you say except louder

I'm stuck to a screen where the minutes feel like hours
And I'm lost in my head
Well I don't really like it here
I wish I'd never have to go

Don't believe a word I say
No one tells you what to do
Accept yourself except today
Track Name: Perfect Picture
Perfect picture painted extends out of our minds
It drags us in with one glance of both our eyes, and we're gone
And we're gone

Perfect picture drawn out with pencils on a card
It catches the feelings and sends them out to you, then they're gone
Then they're gone

I know by heart the ticking in my body
Why it sometimes makes me question why?
I'm shattering, why?

I know that tingling, the shiver in my spine
Why it sometimes makes me question why?
I'm lying on the floor, why?

Breathing softly and singing a song that never ends
I hope it allows you to remember all that is good, when we're gone
When we're gone

One small breath turns the whole world upside down, then it flies
Out of the window smashing into the ground, and it's gone
And it's gone
Track Name: California Yew (Radio Edit)
Sigh once, you're giving the wrong sign by breathing in and
Being a bitch on a rail line, you're losing it in a
Bottomless pit made from cinder, lit with candle light

Spread your wings and aim forwards
Then afterwards look for love to sustain you

When can I move out of caramel, it's easy to say whilst

I'm in queue
I'm in queue

California Yew

Spread your wings and aim forwards
Then afterwards look for love to sustain you
California, California Yew

I'll carry you
I'll carry you
I'll carry you

I'll carry you (Ooh)
I'll carry you (Ooh)
I'll carry you (Ooh)
I'll carry you (Ooh)

Oh, yeah
