Track Name: Vines
Carolina wiseguy
pick a pocket full of white rye
hold the handle straight while we ride
what about ambrosia?
just a splash of watercolor
in a flash she's out like lightning
Hollace build a tower
so I can taste the April showers
before they hit the bay of flour
she's quietly designing
a trellis for the ivy twining
she's in herself
quietly shining

Sarah goes on Sundays
she likes to walk to Mars and then some
she's sure to scrape on your attention
in a way I'm new here
in a way I've always been here
broken headlights
deer hit me dear
Hollace how's the tower?
come up with me for the first shower
we'll taste the way Gaea drinks power
she's quietly designing
she's in herself
she's quietly shining
she's building a trellis for the ivy twining

she says,
"my vine can climb."
she says,
"my vine can climb."

look
look
LOOK.
Track Name: Don't Go Shaving
don't go
don't go
don't go shaving
all that hair on your face
you've been saving
that beard is clearly
the most beautiful thing
I've ever seen on
the most beautiful thing
I've ever seen

you stole the day away from me
you stole the day away and
you don't owe me anything
you stole the day away from me
you stole the day away and
you don't owe me anything

making my move
making all the miles count
I'm running out of reasons to run
I'm running out of reasons to run

you stole the day away from me
you stole the day away and
you don't owe me anything
you stole the day away from me
you stole the day away and
you don't owe me anything

don't go
don't go
don't go shaving
all that hair on your face
you've been saving
that beard is clearly
the most beautiful thing
I've ever seen on
the most beautiful thing
I've ever seen
Track Name: Sneaker Song
no time to seep in
no time to bleed it out and I
can't believe I believed it
the clowns around town
are putting up posters
inviting everyone to the show
that they're gonna throw

my sneakers serenade me all day
with stories of when we'll finally run away
and I cannot bear to break the news
to my favorite shoes
that they probably won't be around by then

is this real life?
is this forever?
can I touch it with my hands?
each little whip strikes
and makes me leather as
my feet meet every street
laid in the lands

my sneakers serenade me all day
with stories of when we'll finally run away
and I cannot bear to break the news
to my favorite shoes
that they probably won't be around by then
not by then
not by then
they probably won't be around by then
Track Name: Numb Gums
Daddy was a butcher
Daddy was a butcher
Mama was a picture hanging on the wall
A little white powder
you think about the power
you burn all your money
blowing smoke up your nose

whoa, it's got me by the balls
whoa, I'm fast to the rock
I'm fast back to the street
WHOA, it's got me by the balls
and I'm going up town to see the man

white eyes
white lines
white lights
stay with me now
white eyes
white lines
on your mind
white eyes white lines white lights
I'm going uptown to see the man

the city's on fire
it's the prettiest pyre
you harvest your desires
no regard to the plan
gotta wear a gun now
I'm numbing up my gums now
I'mma going up town to see the man

whoa, it's got me by the balls
whoa, I'm fast to the rock
I'm fast back to the street
WHOA, it's got me by the balls
and I'mma going up town to see the man
Track Name: Time
that was yesterday
that was yesterday
welcome to Now
we'll make up for lost synapses somehow
maybe Time is just playing
her favorite jokes on her favorite folks
I'll wait it out
I'll wait it out

take me to your place
to your place and
show me your face in the living room light
I'm somewhere I never thought I'd be
Patience came to my bed tonight
and said tonight,
"Why don't you just wait it out?"
just wait it out

can't you tell by the moon
that the night is just creeping in
my watch died on me some years ago
open sesame
world to see
come to me
while I breathe this in
and let it out
and let it out

what's your problem?
my problem is that I can't stop the hunt
I can't find a time to drop my bow
they can't calculate
what's at stake
barter snakes
let it go but don't let it out
don't let it out
don't let it out
Track Name: Jellywad
the brain is such a funny ball of jelly
look what I can do
I remember
I remember
ain't it funny I remember
look what I can do
it's a chamber
it's a theater
and you can come and watch me
remembering you
look what I can do
look what I can do

think I got this so down
think I got this all so in the bag
think I got it all charmed up

the jellywad has a knack of
switching up the grid
I don't know if that really happened
but I'll smile and pretend it did
I'll smile and pretend it did
I'll smile and pretend it did

and you know you are
more than the sum of your parts
and you know you are
the star on my movie screen
you are the star on my movie screen
sepia toned with a touch of green
you are the star on my movie screen

look what I can do
look what I can do

I remember
I remember
ain't it funny I remember
look what I can do
Track Name: Dump That Chump
dump that chump
dump that chump
don't be a dummy
don't be a fool
dump that chump
dump that chump
think of all you've been missing
think of all of the time that you'll save
if you dump that chump

don't be a dummy
don't be a fool
do what you please
but please dump that chump
dump that chump
dump that chump

think of all you've been missing
think of all of the time that you'll save
if you dump that chump

dump
that
chump
Track Name: Goddamn Singalong
I'm supposed to sing a song that everyone knows
and the people like it rhyming
yeah you know how it goes
I'm coming out
I'm coming out
I'll bring it back again
I'm coming out
just sit back down
there is no need to sweat
I'm coming out
I'm coming out
I'll bring it back again

cause everybody loves a goddamn singalong
everybody loves a goddamn singalong
everybody loves a goddamn singalong

I'm supposed to sing a song that everyone knows
but the social lexicon and everything in it blows
can't reinvent
can't reinvent
I think I'm bent again
can't call my friends
can't make the ends
of all these sentences rhyme
can't reinvent
can't reinvent
I think I'm bent again

cause everybody loves a goddamn singalong
everybody loves a goddamn singalong
everybody loves a goddamn singalong

{everybody that I meet on the street loves a beat
and a tune and a goddamn singalong}

everybody loves a goddamn singalong
everybody loves a goddamn singalong
yes
everybody loves a goddamn singalong
Track Name: Primordial Stew
In the candlelight
I know I'm right
I know I'm right
when I say "I'm sorry"
but your shield says
you won't feel
you won't feel cause
you won't hear my story

you are beautiful
and now that I've lost it
I seek control
I'm reaching out with my hands
to feel again
I'll touch the sun again
burn my hand again
little lost planet

in the living room
the land of doom
it comes too soon and
you can feel you're in the weeds
and the tragedy is
you won't look at me
when I'm beckoning and
begging you to cut the gravity

you are a mystery
I never know what you'll do
or what you'll mean to me
primordial stew
that's brewed for you
these labor pains again
the solar stains again
"I'll remember to forget"

nobody does it like you do
nobody does it like you do
nobody does it like you do
Track Name: Easy Does It
easy does it
just keep it simple
and train your brain to breathe
let the Source fill you
be all around you
and let your now be now
be now
be now

easy does it
just keep it simple
and let this mantra
wrap around your bones
easy does it
just keep it simple
and train your brain to breathe

easy does it
just keep it simple
and train your brain to breathe
easy does it
just keep it simple
and train your brain to breathe
Track Name: For You
listen to me while I tell you you're beautiful
listen to me while I'm young enough to speak
we are alive and outside our shells
we can't believe it yet

I will walk
I will run
I will make my way to you
no matter where you go
no matter where you are
no matter how far which star
which star to start from as I jump
right off the moon into the pool
of this loveliness we've been secreting

believe me when I say what I say
believe me when I say you are beautiful
and I'm the luckiest boy in the world
I'm the luckiest boy in the world
I'm the luckiest boy in the world

listen to me while I tell you you're beautiful
listen to me while I'm young enough to speak
listen to me while I tell you you're beautiful
listen to me while we're young enough to love
Track Name: Don't Wait To Stop Waiting
time is of the essence they say
I want the presence today
but I'm so exhausted
I've got an empty cup
I'm trying to fill it back up
I know what it costs man
I believe I'll find serenity
when opportunity stops evading me
it's probably here right now in front of me
but I won't let me see
'cause I'm stuck in waiting

don't wait to stop waiting
maybe all you really need to make
is what you're making
because because because
the only answer they are saying
so use that wisdom now
don't wait to stop waiting

I climb and I must suffer to say
that the gold in each day is
phantom and foolish
hang up the mirror in place
get a glimpse of your face
so handsome and ghoulish
I believe I'll find serenity
when opportunity stops evading me
it's probably here right now in front of me
but I won't let me see
'cause I'm stuck in waiting

don't wait to stop waiting
maybe all you really need to make
is what you're making
because because because
the only answer they are saying
so use that wisdom now
don't wait to stop waiting

time is of the essence they say
I want the presence today
time is of the essence they say
Well man, I want my presence today
I believe I'll find serenity
when opportunity stops evading me
it's probably here right now in front of me
but I won't let me see
'cause I'm stuck in waiting

don't wait to stop waiting
maybe all you really need to make
is what you're making
because because because
the only answer they are saying
so use that wisdom now
don't wait to stop waiting
Track Name: Rooftop Song
from the roof
my spitball takes about 10 seconds to land
on the head of the next passing businessman
watch the tourists all look up at the rectangles scraping sky
I wonder if they can see me
if I'm just a blip in their eyes
and if they could see me they'd be so envious
because I'm closer to the stars than they are
than they are
it's a mile up here
but I can still hear siren sounds
gravity keeping track of people feet on the ground
I can see the Sun and the Moon
they're both out here at the same time
it must be a cosmic holiday!
these are the thoughts today
these are my thoughts today

shingle shag
watch me dancing
while Regina is playing in the back
heart attack
stop my breath
and play back that track
it just sounds so beautiful up here
everything is beautiful from up here

even up on the roof
you've still got a roof above your head
think about that next time you're cracked out
and you can't sleep in your bed

it's all just so beautiful up here
everything is beautiful from up here
everything is beautiful from up here
everything is beautiful from up here
Track Name: Ocean
gentle like a squid in the ocean
gentle like the rain is to the ocean
to the ocean
gonna be alone with the sea
we'll see
gonna be another wave to
come and take my house
gonna be afraid of the whales on my front lawn

where the comet lands
there will be magic
you can touch it with your hands
where the comet flies
there will be fire marrying ice
when I kiss your lips
it will be fire marrying ice

we're governed by the Moon
we're governed by the Moon
Loons
we don't even know
Ocean
Ocean
Ocean
Ocean
