Track Name: Back in Town
Drip Drip Drip
We are back in town
Got our feet in the air
And our soul in the ground
We’re so kind and so profound
We feel no order we hear no sound

Bouncing off the walls
Riddling sound
Great divide
On the table all around

Wait
We’re gliding on a frozen land
Ringing of the shovels
brought the New Year in
Hold my hand don’t let me down
If I’m not here
Do I make a sound

Drip Drip Drip
In the IV lab
Got our feet hanging
In the plastic bag

Our food all fluid
And our teeth all brown
Wait for me
Till I’m back in town

Wait!
We are gliding on a frozen land
Ringing of the shovels
Brought the New Year in
Hold my hand don’t let me down
If I’m not here
Do I make a sound
Track Name: Freedom Tower
Helicopters gnawing
Spotlight for the poor
Perverted newsroom growing
Dire dreams in fur
Another Freedom Tower
In our neighborhood
Mechanics son and the Holy Ghost
Daughter is asleep
Village gained for all the loss
Sewers in our stream
Another Freedom Tower
In our neighborhood

Snow had covered up the screen
That we were playing in
And I held you and you held me
And we were in a dream

Optical illusion
Put up all your feet
For eyes dealers sewing
Extras on the street

River's growing sour
bearing all her teeth

Pale blue lights are calling
Spotlight for the fools
what the screen desires
All aboard the rule
Another Freedom Tower
In our Neighborhood

Snow had covered up the screen
That we were playing in
I held you and you held me
And we were in a dream
Track Name: West Ukraine
We used to laugh about it
When you loved me darling
No sense in harming
I’m in the other room

The fire is out
Getting cold without your heat
I gotta demon up my feet
Rumbling road up ahead

Going to the club
Gonna see Maurice

Gonna get undone
Getting off my knees

It’s just not worth
Sticking round

You’re gonna leave me anyhow

We got brand floors
But we got walls in the middle
It’s getting mad
Darling you’re a riddle

You were gonna take my hand
You were gonna take my name
But we’re both insane
In the West Ukraine
In the West Ukraine

Emily,
Emily,
Emily,
Emily....
Track Name: Hotel Bristol
When I was born
I was taken out of context
From a decent home
Stranded down by the mountain
Underneath my bed
The sun drew its plan
On the ceiling
I heard it in a song
From the mouths of
Singing frogs
On top of dead cars
I was dreaming


When I was born
Into the forest’s eyelid
Before the fall
On the hood
I stood smiling
Beneath my head
Piled in rows, dead bodies
And all the poisoned wells
Spilled down from hell
Years to find him


When I was born
Three buildings ago
In the soldier’s side sin
I left just in time
Before his tasteless dining
Behind the door
I smelled the rosemary glide in
In that old helmet spell
Too many years to tell
I fled across the mountain

I’m standing now
I’ve tasted all the blood
Rain and snow
I’m standing now
Like an old forgotten coat
But I still believe
That something good will come
From all this
For each brick I sewed
And all martyrs of gold
That came along
And whistled my song
While they were leaving

When I was born
Sometime ago
In a senior home
Stood there all alone
Like a stranded pawn
On a radio
And I could hear that song
Play all night long down the hall
Where the nurses eat
With their charts so neat
Could I get your name my dear
Before I get my healing

I’m standing now
I’ve tasted all the blood
Rain and snow
I’m standing now
Like an old forgotten coat
But I still believe
That something good will come
From all this
For each brick I sewed
And all martyrs of gold
That came along
And whistled my song
Track Name: Small Time Noah
I am well seasoned
I am well done
I’m liquored with Jesus
I’m pacing around

Shoemaker help me up
My brother's in a clinch
A dozen sitters
Serving stout for the hitched

I’m falling through the trees
Into the riverbed
Poisoned and baffled minds
As witnesses we stand
As witnesses we stand

Got me feeling I got
Nothing to lose today
This is all that I got
Going all the way

I’m a small time Noah
Waiting on the porch
Got my boat tied
To the side
I’m wasted like a roach

Oh Messiah
Just give me one more sign
All these rodents weeping
I don’t want to die

I’m falling through the trees
Into the river I
That’s the place I cannot leave
That’s where I will die
That’s where I will die

Got me feeling I got
Nothing to lose today
This is all that I got
Going all the way

I’m a small time Noah
Waiting on the porch
Got my boat tied
To the side
I’m wasted like a roach

Following behind the Bomb
Particles at bay
Is it getting really dark?
Or beginning of a day

Got me feeling I got…
Track Name: Voices
We cut all the trees for graves
Burned the branches for this life
Southern breeze came
Brought some ease
That's when I married my wife

We robbed all the ancient walls
Slight of hand, human growth
There are towns that still now weep
Sirens still ring through

Voices, stranded in between
Disconnected in a dream
Hanging on their words
Following, stranded in between
Disconnected in a dream
Undocumented rain

We cut all the trees for graves
Burned the branches for this life
Southern breeze came
Brought some ease
That's when I married my wife

Brushed up on our murder speeches
Slime of hand, pulls and teaches
Behind the mundane, modern walls
Each one nods and always falls

Voices, stranded in between
Disconnected in a dream
Hanging on their words
Following, stranded in between
Disconnected in a dream
Undocumented rain

We cut all the trees for graves
Burned the branches for this life
Southern breeze came
Brought some ease
That's when I married my wife
Track Name: Window Joy
Learning it
As I'm looking out
Baffled mind
Just cannot see
What's behind
What's inside
This whole thing

Giving in
As I'm walking out
One more clean slate
Is it working out
You got a place
Where I can stay

Sweet desire
County that has no wires
I'm breaking out
Figment of my own escape

Never mind
Window joy

Lift me up
Before another dance
Let me just go
It's not a story for the weak and small
Is it beginning to snow
Help me up
For it's you I know
Forgive my negligence
And before the bees begin to fall
In the end just applaud

Sweet desire
County that has no wires
I'm breaking out
Figment of my own escape
Track Name: Let me in
Kiss me on the mouth
Trade me with the wind
To the black town
Where the diamonds sin

Eat me alive
Feel me on your skin
Don’t let me drown
In their arms
Greedy wondering

But something always gets me
Keeps me coming back
Darling can you let me

Feed me with the view
Send me with the scream
To the birds
In morning gowns
Sleep singing
Hovering

Privatize our sky
Sail me on your fin
To the Red Cloud
On the garbage yodeling

But something always gets me
Keeps me coming back
Darling can you let me
Track Name: Lucille
Burn, Burn to the ground
Get the people all around
Bicycles and squeaky sounds
State officials, taking it away
To a lab somewhere,
To another town

Dance, Dance
Molesting hands
On the hydrant evidence
One arm on the fence
And the other one is
Waving flags
For National, National Holidays

Lucille, Lucille
You're not even real
What's the deal
Why don't we go
And get on drunk
Before we feel
Before we feel

Magazines, magazines
Secretes that you're bringing in
Who is hovering and who is covering
Each day for you and me
My dear Lucille
My dear Lucille

Dr. V, Dr. V
Why don’t you sign the remedy
Gotta a burning spleen
And two fingers for the victory
For you and me

Lucille, Lucille
You're not even real
What's the deal
Why don't we go
And get on drunk
Before we feel
Before we feel
Track Name: Ghost Ships and Zodiacs
We sterilized than legalized
A different kind of love
Don’t stare at her
With your devil eyes
Touch her with a glove

Mobilize the fisherman
And privatize the village
And across the sea
The children weep
Organize the image

Nowhere to hide right here
The world is covered up in fear
When we settle down with ourselves
We’ll break another man in half

Don’t disturb
Ol’ money bags
Don’t disburse
Their schilling
Sometimes when
The sewer leaks
It affects the living

In the dessert we will lie in wait
To reach our destination
Hop on board the Zodiacs
Dream of alienation

Nowhere to hide right here
The world is covered up in fear
When we settle down with ourselves
We’ll break another man in half
Track Name: Morning
Bring the shovels out
String another man
In the stomach burning
Kindness giving in

Strike another hour
Kill the minute as you speak
Fix that other tower
Blind them so they cannot see

Invite the funeral morning
Bring the mocking bird
For the time is aging
Pass another urn

Say hello to my father
Say hello to his lazy ass
He is somewhere smoking
Listening to Jazz

Morning
Morning
Let the trumpet sing

Morning
Let the trumpet sing
Let the trumpet sing
