I went out camping on the side of the mountain for to see if I could find out why I went out camping / plenty of words strewn around me in the desert / like piles of dry wood waiting for the lightning storm in the desert / waiting for fire or rain to transform music is dancing inside of the passage and the sparks that fly outwards from words that are hammers / everyone quivering hardly they notice /like trees in the drought year waiting for the lightning storm in the high desert / waiting for something to break like a storm
just be cool / fill up time / like a trembling saw wave on an ocean of mind let the fire / burn a song / rock and roll goes on and on you are a rock take my time / take my life / I'm just like that bird but lesser in height sit down good / feel alright / the pain is a pasture sleep there inside you are a rock earth is shaking / I like the way you bounce / strong on the outside you're like a haunted house you are a rock wake up quick / move your bone / you're making me yawn here when I'm in the zone you are a rock
don't know what I did today you are falling away from me don't know what to do or say I know you are not my thing you're not my thing for weeks and months and months we talked there's always something more to say if you did what I want you to do would that be a better thing a better thing I am calling out your name a mango falling down far away you still love an awful boy while I impersonate a man stupid truths will set you free and therefore I am not your thing I'm not your thing
Romance 03:55
remember cars ah those were the days pressing pedals like there's no tomorrow lending my fleshy self to you and trusting one more time can you put your biggest finger on it in your prime and it's better than nothing inherit forever and live right now damn lost it again romance we're all eating movies our days spent tripping when our imaginations coincide real things collide and they divide romance
By the Time 02:15
I'm held captive by the time thank God for the pretty view I love circumstance and you I'm held captive by the time I'm transitioning for good slowly leave this world behind pattern'd curtains 'fore my mind on an island in the woods laws that govern what is True are shifty whispers from on high every liars' sure to die and he will eat delicious food pleasure is a partial truth trials of our captor's mind pick up what you can you got eyes you can feel a thing you can pick a ring you think you see me you'll be blinking again when you drop in the tub the moment will die I don't try I'm just in time I'm held captive by the time you walk roughly round the room I grab fistfuls of the moon we're held captive by the time
Lallibyes 02:41
Eli put your head down hear again reach down to face touch my ears and head sing me lallibyes please don't go to work take me to the beach I don't be you you don't wanna be me sing me lallibyes play me lallibyes I'm here now I'm here now all my life I forget I forget all my life lallibyes lallibyes
Song for Mom 03:06
your vacation womb's 'bout to pass you with grace / onto more lifetimes / like gulls on waves / first left onto Shorebird / as in bird of the shore / these are the places that housed our home you are my person and you are my home / in more ways than even you or I can unfold / when I think about you I swell and I smile / Mother my mother / comin' home in awhile I wanna see you and Mart eat the fruits / to suck up the juice from your roots the longer we stay here / the farther we live / with these perfect bodies / that pull and they give / we are two children / though one of us more / I want to be with you and sojourn some more
