Track Name: The Bank Trail - Absent
You are not the lover I thought you were.
Try too hard and not get where you want.
Peace is in pieces but you can go far.

I know, there is a light for you.
I wouldn't be here.

This your life passing you by.
Towers tall, break them down.
Here's the tools, make a home.

I know, there is a light for you.
I wouldn't be here.

No matter what you do.
You know I always supported you.
Track Name: The Bank Trail - Wildcard
You are loved by everyone.
You can fight on your own.
Take my hand, we'll go anywhere.
In the dark, where they won't see.

You're a wildcard for sure.

You will knock and run.
You will try to make friends.
Take my hand, we'll go anywhere.
With the sharks, where they won't hear.

You're a wildcard for sure.
Track Name: The Bank Trail - Pennyroyal Tea (Nirvana Cover)
I'm on my time with everyone.
I have very bad posture.

I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea.
Distill the life that's inside of me.
I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea.
I'm anaemic royalty.

Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld.
So I can sigh eternally.

I'm so tired I can't sleep.
I'm a liar and a thief.
I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea.
I'm anaemic royalty.

I'm on warm milk and laxatives.
Cherry flavoured antacids.

I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea.
Distill the life that's inside of me.
I sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea.
I'm anaemic royalty.
Track Name: Lake Michigan - Mid
N/A
Track Name: Lake Michigan - Under Your Spell (Desire Cover)
I don't eat.
I don't sleep.
I do nothing but think of you.

You keep me under your spell.
