Track Name: Paloma
Paloma

Oh Paloma, not Fosteria
You broke the final branch
That was the Frenchman's ranch
Oh Paloma

The gulch was stripped of gold
The crystal rock grew cold
In nineteen and o eight
That's when they sealed your fate

Oh Paloma, not Fosteria
You burnt the final branch
That was the Frenchman's ranch
Oh Paloma

Under the Western sun
And the barrel of a gun
With Marshal Law imposed
That's when the mine was closed
The gulch was stripped of gold
The crystal rock grew cold
In nineteen and o eight
That's when they sealed your fate

Oh Paloma, not Fosteria
You burnt the final branch
That was the Frenchman's ranch
Oh Paloma
Oh Paloma
Track Name: Carla the Colorist
Carla the Colorist

She wasn't trying to fool you
She only wanted to school you
Sweep it out
Beneath the olive brown
She never lets you down

Throw out the somber
The new day is stronger
The beige age is over
It's citrus and clover
Oh Carla, Oh Carla
Oh Carla, Oh Carla

She'll take you by the hand now
Your wish is her command now
Step outside
Old lace to Klondike brown

Striking out the shades
Cinnamon and sage
Green sets the scene
Plain vanilla bean
So throw out the somber
The new day is stronger
The beige age is over
It's citrus and clover
Oh Carla, Oh Carla
Oh Carla, Oh Carla

She'll take you by the hand now
Your wish is her command now
She'll show all the finer finer things

Nature sets the hue
Raspberry blue
Sour lemon yellow
Day-glow flamingo
Throw out the somber
The new day is stronger
The beige age is over
It's citrus and clover

Striking out the shades
Cinnamon and sage
Green sets the scene
Plain vanilla bean
So throw out the somber
The new day is stronger
The beige age is over
It's citrus and clover
Oh Carla, Oh Carla
Oh Carla, Oh Carla
Track Name: Cast Out
Cast Out

Connect the dots
You'll see how they roam
Collect your thoughts
And then let them go

Arrange the dials
They're not set in stone
Retrace your miles
This place once was your home

But you’re not a part of the tribe anymore
And your heart breaks
Cast out
Alien
All alone
'Cause you’re not a part of the fight anymore
And you heart breaks
Cast out
Alien
All alone

Remember the time
We first met
The perfect line
You now regret

A photograph
And a cheap souvenir
The storyline
Is all you engineer

But you’re not a part of the tribe anymore
And your heart breaks
Cast out
Alien
All alone
'Cause you’re not a part of the fight anymore
And you heart breaks
Cast out
Alien
All alone

Cast out
Alien
All alone
Track Name: M Words
M Words

Maybe more so
Mayfly moments
Movies mixed-up
Marble mockingbirds

Murmur monster
Metal mercy
Mondo minstrel
Moving minefields

This is the face that I can’t forget
In the heart of the alphabet
Working without a net
Or a single sad regret
Like the lift of a jumbo jet
Goodbye

Marvel mojo
Mister missus
Milky mellow
Made up messages

This is the face that I can’t forget
In the heart of the alphabet
Working without a net
Or a single sad regret
Like the trail of a jumbo jet
Goodbye
