Track Name: gifts
gifts

there's something i brought you
placed in your palm
it floats in your fingers
sings you a psalm
it climbs through your curls
it sleeps in your ear
it snores in your skies

gift from the old myrrh tree
burns for the absentee

it's tempting to chain
it keep it locked up
never let air
make it corrupt
you know that it's dying
to take off in flight
and cast others in its light

gift from the old myrrh tree
burns for the absentee

drift and disperse
like smoke in the surf...

you know you will miss it
but you want it to leave
your happy its going
'cause its too hard to hold
and you know you'll want it
to return sometime soon
on some lonely ass afternoon

gift from the old myrrh tree
burns for the absentee

gift from the old myrrh tree
burns for the absentee
Track Name: grasshopper
grasshopper

this dog is gonna bark all night
fornicate in the pale moonlight
and i've been soakin the bread i find
mouth dry in the canyon

and i wanna be with you
but i"m hung over and blue
pour the light from my flask
it burns but don"t it cast...

i was never taught to charm the sea
fold the maps and brave the beams
a grasshopper who never learned to harvest things
so harbor me in your treasury

oh, then i followed you down
i"m a bunk baptist and i followed you down
bet your money on my fantasy
and i'll hold my hand to show

you got my heart, you got this china lace
and i only wanted to save your face
those drivin boys they all took me
to high times and revelry

ah, and then you followed me down
how'd a queer duck ever get so down
such a marked saint to be
anoesis destiny
anoesis destiny
anoesis destiny
Track Name: rapture of the bees
Gold in the green of a mid summer leaf
Perhaps more beauty than vernal vibrancy
Bees are drunk on pollen and theyre tumblin all around
They bump in to the lip from which I bleed

Ah now don't you fight
Resist with all of your might
No unrequired self defense
I promise to do my best not to bight

Soaring slow motion
You tore out your needle
So we forfeit the life and body
Bridge of lightning with
Heights so frightening
Guts to ether dissolve completely

Ah bow you sure do shake
But bow dont you break
What a mess it will make
Leaving only broken combs
And orphans in our wake
Track Name: common crow
common crow

a guttural belch
conjuring common crow
it's awkward flutter flown
a pageant i have sewn
i offer a pupa prayer
the poison made me strong
but it aint gonna last too long
and we sowed our salty ways
nectar for the bees
spoils in the trees

and i want you to be free with me
in our untidy vulnerability
summon grace and cavalry
courage in kisses and cuffs

you gave me the broderick
an anvil for a tongue
a scourge you had swung
and i feigned and played dead

yeah, i feigned and played dead
the bullshit i can purge
and blossomed we'll emerge

the vertigo of our messes
the commingling c-caresses
underdog under your dresses
courage in kisses and cuffs

and i want you to be free with me
in our untidy vulnerability
summon grace and the cavalry
courage in kisses and cuffs
Track Name: storm of feathers
storm of feathers

snow dissolving
on you palm
the haunting sustain
a stones sorrow

a storm of feathers
a specter passin through
specter's passin through the mountain

bees revolving
in a bottle of wine
ravens wheel into
the fissured sky

(i dream of drowning
in a bottle of time
haunted sustain
a stone's sorrow)

a floating bottle
a hive made of time
a stone dissolving
in an ocean of wine

snow dissolving
on your palm
the floating sustain
a stone's sorrow

and we can just
disappear
on horses farting
into the clear space
where noone
or nothing can find
where we hide
until we desire
to reappear

a storm of feathers
rose from the pillow
the knife that you drew
stuck in the side

(i dream of dissolving
in a bottle of wine)

stars are stones
lifted above
tacked to the sky
to remember us by

lifted above
released from the ground
an effervescent sea
a storm of feathers

stones are swallows
tacked to the sky
swallows are stars
to remember us by

snow dissolving
on your palm
the haunted sustain
a stone's sorrow
Track Name: fire next time
fire next time

the wide wide ocean i have seen
completely covered in gasoline
never saw the rainbow so slick and sheen
never saw the rainbow so vile and obscene

oh la da day
my faucet drains into the sea
but i wont let that bother me
oh la da da day

ocean claimed cities and spat back whales
seaweed and wrack for garbage pails
all prisoners were freed from their jails
only to drown beneath the sails
of capsized boats and navy coats
octopi surfaced only to float
like a discarded rug in a nobleman's moat

the ocean spat spires into the sky
like a horn into a matadors eye
tore it open and down did fly
tongues of flame that began to fry
plains and the mountains turned them to dust
stripped paint from cars let them rust
leaving nothing but a black charred crusted
fire does what it does it does what it must

after the fire burned the oil off of the sea
and it flowed back over the barren country
ha ha hee hee from dust was it made
and dust it shall be
from dust was it made and dust it shall be
from the cape of good hope to tripoi
from dust was it made and dust it shall be
more cause and effect than philosophy

oh la da day
my faucet drains into the sea
but iwont let that bother me
oh la da da day
Track Name: the hottest days of summer
the hottest days of summer

in the hottest days of summer
i was a drunken fool
i drank and got much number
til my soul felt less cruel
i was invisible
unseen by men and only ghosts

i hack the moon to pieces
i spit in a ravens eye
i pigtied chupacabra
and skinned him half alive
javelina were my companions
in the wicked desert field
i chewed stones for my pleasure
no caution did i yield

i danced with the serpents daughter
and her scales of disease
her callous tongue entwined me
and brought me to my knees
i slit the sky wide open
doused the sun with blood
i fell into a slumber
drowned in a pool of mud

i tilled up the graveyard
leveled the mausoleum
i milled all the dry bones
and sifted them with salt
i hacked the moon to pieces
i spit in a ravens eye
i pigtied chupacabra
chewed stones

in the hottest days of summer
i was a drunken fool
i drank and got much number
til my soul felt less cruel
i was invisible
unseen by men and only ghosts
Track Name: bedful of bulbs
bedful of bulbs

bedful of heads
bedful of bulbs
slow moaning low

solo cavalcade
the emt in a white motion pass
bed bedful of bulbs
bedful of heads
slumberin
no glow

this is how we start the day
this is how we find our way

all tucked in a row
slumberin with a crouchin crane
smokin a cigarette
he's leanin himself
up high above
liftin himself up high above the avenue

this is how we start the day
this is how we find our way

daffodils loosin their crown
always starin always lookin down
takin in somethin we can't see
are they reportin?
are they recordin you and me
permanantly staring down

this is how we start the day
this is how we find our way
Track Name: heliopause
heliopause

yes we're still alive
close encounter with lightning
no kind of struggle
just to give up the fight
and give into flight

you know its the truth
that brings these lines to my face
someone send up a flare 'cause
this poor boy's lost out in space
(away...)

someone give me a compass
something by which i can steer
the stars i used to guide by them
but they're no use for me here
(no use here...)

when you're looking for testement
i'll be the first one to sing
'cause everywhere i ve gone
in this direction i'm cast
there's no reward,
there is no bell to ring out here.
Track Name: trees (eeg)
trees (eeg)

drive by the woods
sun cuts through the trees
over me my eyes can see
a bit of the light a bit of the trees
inside the movements the ghosts i can see
ground in flames a
and sky of ice

drive by the woods
sun cuts through the trees
over me my eyes can see
a bit of the light a bit of the trees
inside the movements the ghosts i can see
ground in flames a
and sky of ice

drive by the woods
sun cuts through the trees
over me my eyes can see
it grew from a spec
then filled the room
death came so close after the bloom
trees divided by the light i see
trees divided by the light in me

the light i see
the light in me
the light i see
the light in me
