Track Name: three or four hills & a cloud
well I am rubber - and I am glue
and what I say just isn’t true
the green outside - the violet too
but I just can’t stand the blue
I walk outside – and see a cloud
and I then I say the word with my whole mouth
it tastes funny – so then I see
if I can try try try something else

well I’ve had some trouble sleeping
but I dream all afternoon

the falling leaves – are flying moths
and without a light they seem to stop
some questions fall – like birds from trees
and always rise into the breeze

I measure my life in one-year leases
is this a puzzle or just some pieces?
I forget most the songs I sing
and still don’t know what I mean

I want to get away

the sky yawns
the cat yawns

I want to get away

well we are honey - the sun is too
and we will ooze ooze ooze until the moon
pokes her grey face - through all that space
and then we’ll open up and then we’ll bloom

well I’ve had some trouble sleeping
but I dream all afternoon
Track Name: sleepwalker
caligari dream
in here it seems
I’d rather be
anywhere else

& in the morning I
& in the evening I
& in the moment I

the subway squirms
like a fat earthworm
on the damp sidewalk
after a storm

& in the morning I
& in the evening I
couldn’t believe my eyes

come on, let's go

the resting birds
on the power line
write a melody
inside my mind
Track Name: cicada something
I’m in a stage

cicada metronome
reminds me that I’ve grown
into some brand new thing
with wasabi wings
it’s hard to see yourself
within a pallid shell
the color must break out
the color must break out

I want to grow
but
I’m in a stage

chrysalis I wish
I could do it all again
I’m worse at waking up
than I am at sleeping in
my mind made up its mind
& I’m starting to begin
to see the green in things
where I never saw a tint

I want to grow
but
I’m in a stage
