Track Name: on looseleaf with sharpie
on looseleaf with sharpie

don't take the splinter from my sun
it's reeled in lucky fish now the lord wants some
it tumbled down my trunk
and avalanched into my toes

i'd like to tumble collapse inside your arms
for nuts and sugar and fruits of fancy
come to the reprise of a seed
that inside you flies and lassos
all my wide eyed demons

we slept under the overpass
and then you fell out of my faulty grasp
the stones were hummin from easy jokes
and i was broken by cruel strokes

i'd like to tumble collapse inside your arms
for nuts and sugar and fruits of fancy
come to the reprise of a seed
that inside you flies and lassos
all my wide eyed demons

you live for dust and nothing else
propelled by green and all molten, smelt
i dreamed you a million rivers
all wombs of lotus
and mothers milk

i'd like to tumble collapse inside your arms
for nuts and sugar and fruits of fancy
come to the reprise of a seed
that inside you flies and lassos
all my wide eyed demons

like a laser you shot through my nose
and the moon it danced until it froze
it tumbled down my trunk
and avalanched into my toes

i'd like to tumble collapse inside your arms
for nuts and sugar and fruits of fancy
come to the reprise of a seed
that inside you flies and lassos
all my wide eyed demons
Track Name: the sun is the source
the sun is the source

the sun is the source
the moon a frozen corpse
dancin all my days
but not for always

cause always is long
and never just as wrong

i promised in my younger days
never say 'i love you'
never use 'love' in a song

but never is long
and always just as wrong
yeah, never is long
and always just as wrong
Track Name: h.d. told me
h.d. told me

there is no name for this
some ephemeral chorus
calling out your name
revel in the echoes
on the shore change goes on and on and on
repetition teaches form to all the beaches
borders yielding to time

now, h.d. told me
duty
and guilty
are deadly
and empty
ways to love and be

you could have me tarred and feathered
then cured and leathered
and you'd have your way
have me weighed and measured
then observe and treasure
all of my fading traits

now, h.d. told me
duty
and guilty
are deadly
and empty
ways to love and be

repetition teaches
form to all the beaches
borders yielding to time
Track Name: dropout
dropout

can i stand up
if i have my wits about
i could
can i stand out
if all my blood
came pouring out
i would
can i drop out
yes, if i have

my specs in line
i'd take my leave of all that i perceive
all that i can receive
i would drop out

one day it will be that easy

can i keep up?
if all machines all came unplugged
can i look out?
if i have my stilts on right
i would
can i drop out?
yes, if i have
all that is mine
i'd leave it behind
all i need i'll find
or slowly loose my mind
i'd rather drop out

one day it will be that easy
Track Name: all is fine, all is well
all is fine, all is well

all is fine, all is well
out of line and your cell
on the make and off the cuff
out of doors and in the buff
up in arms and down to fate
notch your belt and clear your plate

out of sync and in your bed
love the living, trust the dead
from the grave to the tee
fill your cup to drain the sea

around about and through the woods
give a shot and get the goods
chew the fat and shit the bites
birth a bitch and kill the lights
Track Name: heads and tails
heads and tails

oh, what a great surprise
that light does some magic to your eyes
starlight lumination
a jar of captured fireflies
take my bed and i'll lay here
right by you on the floor
the trees might whisper
the wind may unlatch the front door

your dogs are barkin
belly caterwauling
take a load off
drink with me
all my angels
all my devils
sleep together
heads and tails always

the sky is flashin
a broken broadcast caught behind the clouds
the ground is rumblin
an ocean liner's tillin up the ground
the rain is fallin
wayward rounds from a double barrel gun
all the desperate mantras
wont shield us from the harsh truth of the storm

your dogs are barkin
belly caterwauling
take a load off
drink with me
all my angels
all my devils
sleep together
heads and tails always
Track Name: geronimo
geronimo

i'm camped in your family tree
see you clear cut my history
i'm gonna fly away on a wooden broom
i call it my steed i call it my horse
i'll fight fair, well, ofcoarse
i'm a knight in armour shining in the sun

look out below
geronimo
here we go

it's a hrad lesson to learn
it's a hard lesson to pay for
brave like this
you slave like this
morning will come
a breath of sun

look out below
geronimo
here we go
Track Name: (these days must be) gravy
(these days must be) gravy

in the days before
we waiting for the rain
now we all keep scores
watchin the skies in vain

and my dance never came bacl
though i shouted 'til my throat was raw
ran 'til i wore out my tread
bang my head against the wall
until i lost my head
these days must be gravy

i leaned into the wind
nothing was forgotten
i caight all my rest
after my humble crest

and my dance never came bacl
though i shouted 'til my throat was raw
ran 'til i wore out my tread
bang my head against the wall
until i lost my head
these days must be gravy
Track Name: pitch
pitch

flat and out of tune
a pot and a spoon
a plume of new moon sky
a dumpster dive

bring out
the bins
and then bring them all
back in

begin before all your friends
throw away break of day
strategies of dissidence

bring out
the bins
and then bring them all
back in

the sin of waiting too long
some sachrine song wont help you
throw away
break of day
throw away
break of day

they say 'hand over your heart
or we'll blow the world away'

blow away
break of day
