Zombies 03:42
out on the lawn, you could see something was wrong habit is such, that it lumbers along the neighbors all talk, they’re shaking up the walk enter the fear, never ever would have dreamed of being caught finer today is the sun on your unbitten leg how can we get down, when everybody’s lying on the ground bullets under beds, where are the pistols? they cannot be found so oh oh so alone with them around out in the sun where the light shades us from harm waiting for luck, for the river to dry up darker you say, is the night that they’ll take us away now we can get down cause everybody’s living underground buried in their beds where are the pistols planted in the mounds so oh oh so alone now that they’re not around oh oh oh so lonely now

So Long 04:00
as bloody as the moon too funny too soon could swoon but instead it’s ok to get a kind of apathy that only you could wrap with ease and give it to us on holiday and under all the scrutiny as moody as you too can be this mutiny is barely a phase so pray tell say you’ll crack the gate for a break in the way it’s arranged so long to the notion of gentle gesticulation the salt in the air is a prayer you can taste take my hand and give it to the parrots and the picketers you wouldn’t want it if it was gold, so you plant it in a soil of clay and oil and it’s clear the more the water boils the longer that position would hold and then you cried into a river cause you heard it in a song but it didn’t feel better if not plenty wrong so give it away, give it a day, or string it along so long to the notion of gentle gesticulation the salt in the air is a prayer you can taste

I’ve got a proposition why don’t we change positions? I’ll take your physical prowess you take this rabbit hat from me. while we’re in this position, exchanging definitions I’d like a song to keep my memory intact. am I high on fumes, or do you feel it too? this wash of noise that’s calling me to you it’s everything, you’ll see we’ll make it out, there’s no doubt about it
4.
Food 03:50
losing all the time, you’re such a brave bug on a light bulb losing all the time, you’re such a brave bug on a light bulb I happened to forget you had anatomy you took out your eyes for me to see better once or twice you’ve come to me ‘cause I don’t invite enough of you babe to have fun and stay o o losing all the time, you’re such a brave bug on a light bulb cunning never ever failed you, girl, so get clever now your mouth is whole it’s incomplete, was stole a recurring dream of sleep beneath the sheets having much to learn a constant curve to turn a mask made well becomes a shell to hide the burn driving every mile inside a paper mache lion going home is sort of hopeless
5.
don’t look now summer soul will bring you down only one act begs for another bow when the morning is ripe with a changing mind and the water, water, water is so fine we will go go outside the sky is falling down I can see you flying a kite girl that’s why there’s time for us now tanya, tanya, tanya you make it so easy so don’t look now you won’t always be around hazy heart beats take us to higher ground and the water, water, water is so high you’re the only one the first and the last of your kind to say we’ll go you’re the only one go outside the sky is falling down you’re the only one I can see you flying a kite ooh you’re the only one girl that’s wise there’s time, there will be time
6.
Wary Eyes 03:17
go and wear it out your wary eyes you’ve got it all you’ve got it all go and wear it out your wary eyes you’ve got it all you’ve got it all oh oh oh oh...
7.
L A Beach 02:14
holy holler, in the water salt and sand erodes your blistered feet holy holler, what a daughter leave her breathing underneath the shallow sea oxygen is running thin the icicles grow back here on shore coming out for the day you brought no blanket for us to lay upon said your home was the sea did you mean to say me do you mean to say with medicine and everything else you put inside my pocket I’m not better now nothing figured out I’m not better now
8.
Entropia 01:53
caught sewing this for miles not knowing ever changing greens and the reds all the vandals have their own way
9.
cold is night to a bold new light oh you’re settled in bloodstream medicine child hold your reticent babe close to your breastbone and smile you golden god of fables what could not be real endless parallels, though you hide it well so nothing today can stay the same for me you hollow log, immeasured you genius cracked, so forever you’ve got it all you lucky dog how so smitten to lick at wounds bitten with lips three fine fingers the look was so near to the touch (count the blessings on your table) gone stare out into night got it wrong about time time, such a fickle line lines, lines, just capricious lies lies, lies, lie in wayward time and in a day’s week every salt’s gone to seed a garden shed mistook for turbulent seas so blown out the 30 way today for me you’re ruling law you’re genius cracked you’ve got it all you lucky dog

Summer Rain 04:44
loose ends, like the jelly bloom in dark bays you said you were over being blue come back, stave away the greyer greys with new shades from underneath the sea where balene sleep I wanted to be your Eden I wanted to be your Eve I just wanted to be your good girl but then I grew into a man can’t make land, from under water can’t find water up here on dry land new stems of the lily from the dark clay till blue dawn would see you hide your bloom away I won’t let you get too far away from me come back I just wanted to be your good girl but then I grew into a man can’t make land, from under water can’t find water up here on dry land As if none had come before us In somebody else’s plan

Lark 03:26
this is a lark, this is a larger monster loving you like you love a good fight, these unkempt yards make it hard and harder you rake the leaves, as if to say you won’t stay take out your knife cut deep and wide if you’ve got to let it bleed this is a lark, this is a darker feather you make the flight to make it right it’s not a show of bleeding hearts buried in the dark above our homes sleep away the night the day steal away to a corner of this maze

Call Me 04:09
hold on to me, that’s all I’ll ask of you call out to me, that is all I will need
