Track Name: Wond'ring
Someday someone somewhere's gonna know
The reason, reason people go
And sometime somehow somebody will perceive
The reason, reason people leave

In the meantime we'll have to wonder.
And in the meantime we'll have a rest.

Someday someone somewhere's gonna know
The reason, reason people go
(Why can't you know you know?)
And sometime somehow somebody will perceive
The reason, reason people leave
(Why can't you see you see?)

In the meantime we'll have to wonder.
And in the meantime we'll read some Psalms.
(Wond'ring through the night. Then we'll read some Psalms.)

Someday, someone somewhere's gonna know
the reason that our most beloved go.
And sometime somehow somebody will perceive
Why, why, why, why they have to leave.
(Why can't you see you see?)

In the meantime we'll have to wonder.
And in the meantime we'll get some sleep.
(Wond'ring through the night. Then we'll go to sleep.)
Track Name: Oh Maisy!
Oh Maisy, you're amazing.
Oh Maisy, you're amazing.
In church you play the organ part.
And you're a Buddhist; I think you've captured my heart.

You'll pay with advice, if it's all you've got.
You're convinced that Kanye's a communist plot.

Oh Maisy, you're amazing.
Oh Maisy, you're amazing.
You made a list of your top 100 ways to get by.
Number 30's krumping, I wouldn't have placed it that high.

We're very glad that you're yourself again.
Well you're so great now we don't care about then.

Oh Maisy, you're amazing.
Oh Maisy, you're amazing.
Track Name: About Forgetting
I forget everything before several months,
'Cept for all the stuff I screwed up.
Such is the brain I didn't ask for.

I recall every moment of When In Rome's debut album from '88.
Such is the brain I didn't ask for.

She can remember she wore the first day of first grade.
I'm glad that I still remember how to write an "A".

I forget the last thing's that I'd wanna lose.
Things that make a life worth living.
Such is the brain I didn't ask for.

She can remember what we at on the night we first kissed.
I feel glad that I can remember what year it is.

All that ever comes through's a fifteenth generation mimeograph.
And that description does a disservice to Tom Edison.
When you must depend on someone else,
Their stories make you smile, but don't get back your past.
Track Name: Things Too Obvious to Sing
I see you glare at the girl over there,
As she buys her food with a SNAP card.
It's sad to me that we can't all agree,
That you shouldn't have to be doing well before you get to eat.
And deep down, we all know.

These are things too obvious to sing.
I wish that it was such that I could stop.
Ham-fisted appeals, I wish they weren't so real.
I long for strife not so over-the-top.

You know, we all know.

It's wrong and it's sad that anyone has to lose everything cause they get sick.
It makes no sense that your right to life should be denied because of where you go to work.

These are things too obvious to sing.
I wish that it was such that I could stop.
Ham-fisted appeals, I wish they weren't so real.
I long for strife not so over-the-top.
