Track Name: DOWN THE STREAM
down the stream down the stream all the leaves go
down the stream down the stream all my days go
who could say who could know where my days go
who could say who could know where my days go
cherish every moment
cherish every moment
cherish every moment
cherish ever moment
cuz I was filled to the gills with sleeping pills
sink me to the bottom of the earth
the big blue tear drop
that forms and deforms
worlds within worlds
their is no secret to the universe
it's just a good yarn spun too small to see it all
so do not fear to be hear and now alive
with dreams like train steam screams
insane and racing against the night
here comes the night
so glow and know you always grow
you are the arrows of the rainbow
you bring the dead back to life
everywhere you go
tulips thru the snow
suffering souls
stampede to work
mechanical flocks of fat starving birds
that go
munch munch yard to yard
munch munch yard to yard
munch
but never seem to learn
all they burn won't return
but when they return they will squirm
with the worms
so cherish every moment, cherish every moment
Track Name: BLACKSEA
there's a stray grey kitten by the bus stop
and she won't ever let you pick her up
there's a strange fading winter in my morning lust
and there's a million ravens in the treetops
they used to laugh right at the clowns
until my love took them them all down
they used to laugh right at me
until my love set me free
into the black black sea
learn to live in the black sea
in the black black sea
teach me from the black sea
Lulu Lulu Lulu Lulu...
Track Name: COME ALONG PATHOS
come alone
winter
and I'll freeze over
and over
come along
spring
and I'll melt
over and over
but do not pine
valentine
I'm a little bramble vine
that's growing on yer side
come alone
summer
and I'll pour over and over
come along autumn
and I'll fall
over and over
but do not pine
valentine
I'm a little bramble vine
that's growing on yer side
Track Name: YARDSAILING
I can tell how they feel
be it fabric or steel
across any field
be it magnets, astroids or clovers...
so don't talk like you do
cuz we both know that soon
the truth is as good as buying used shoes...
I've been that awkward before
with my spine to the floor
a question mark that lost it's question...
so don't write me no more
from your road or your shore
where they find you bound, drowned and delivered...
cuz my sisters says that all that makes sense
is yer simply the sperm donor...
so I donate my life
my love all that's mine to the battle on the bloody bloody bedside...
well maybe sickness goes away
you take yer chances in yer way
don't keep no secrets in yer body...

I don't care
just tell me a story
about the world
before I was even considered...
who's even considered?

so the dog ran away
happy birthday
I'm here, I'm here
don't worry...
Track Name: CANOE
alone i glide an old canoe
across a hot lazy farm pond I once knew
from the distant grumble of afternoon thunder
you can tell where the dreams rise to the spirit of summer
in the zig zag zig zag dragonflies flew
across the mirror where the sky admires her view
for in the shade is erased a place from our face
we can see down deeply
is that someone who used to be me
I'm afraid I can't say that I believe
I don't know, I can't be sure
of what I was before
I took the road
where she goes
it's the ghosts I trust the most
but they aren't there
they never end
we just keep crawling out of some old skin
well,
I'll get a new high
I'll get a new high
cuz this ain't real blood right?
this ain't real blood right?
this ain't real...
no it's just sap...
tree sap
