Track Name: Rushing Screaming Watercolor
machine long week finally
I can stretch my legs
daydream comfy this seems
like a thousand years

rushing screaming watercolor
brilliant bursting dream
laughing sunlight underwater
ripping at the seams

I want to go
my legs are hurricanes across the sea
my heart beats and beats and beats and beats
my lungs are expanding cosmos
my soul’s a new volcano

sundried thoughts I thought I
lost so long ago
feeling like a fern with
nowhere to grow

exultant lightning songs forever
moving like a stream
through these veins that shiver shiver
with a will to flow flow flow

I want to go
my legs are hurricanes across the sea
my heart beats and beats and beats and beats
my lungs are expanding cosmos
my soul’s a new volcano

cement sunrise baptized
by the afternoon
I take full breaths I feel
like the naked moon

shining heat I drink like water
spilling in the street
I will never be the same
oh

I want to go
my legs are hurricanes across the sea
my heart beats and beats and beats and beats
my lungs are expanding cosmos
my soul’s a new volcano
Track Name: Don't Look Down
regret’s an old sweater
I wear in warm weather
I just want to scream don’t sweat it
I just want to scream just forget

things went the other way
a split in time and space
you can’t paint a portrait
without a few smudges
now coffee grounds growl
at me in the kitchen
the fridge sings along,
but the morning isn't listening to us

I’ve traced along the lines
of stoned words of my mine
I just want to know who I’d be
I just want to know who I’d be

things went the other way
a split in time and space
you can’t paint a portrait
without a few smudges
now coffee grounds growl
at me in the kitchen
the fridge sings along,
but the morning isn't listening to us

Meaning where it’s not
Nothing where it is

now coffee grounds
growl at me in the kitchen
and I sing along,
but the evening isn't listening
Oh, coffee grounds growl at me and I listen
the moon sings along
and green comets come crashing to us

don’t look down

now coffee grounds
growl at me in the kitchen
and I sing along,
but the evening isn't listening
Oh, coffee grounds growl at me and I listen
the moon sings along
and green comets come crashing to us
Track Name: Ghost Jeans
there are whole days I don’t believe in poetry
there whole days I’m everything that I can be
my fantasies are magazines stacking in the corner

I’ve got big, big dreams I’ve got to get around
I’ve got big big big big dreams

Oh I’m a ghost
in a sunny room
what to do?

visions visions visions of wealth and fame
in forty years my soul will be public domain
I've lost receipts to teenage dreams by washing my black jeans

I’ve got big, big dreams I’ve got to get around
I’ve got big big big big dreams

Oh I’m a ghost
in a sunny room
what to do?

I take tylenol to forget all my existential problems
one for the money, two for the money, three ‘cause, you know
for all the times I’ve forgotten my lines, and six ‘cause I’ll never let go
Seven is there heaven? Seven is there Heaven? Eight is there heaven?
9-10-11-12

Oh I’m a ghost
in a sunny room
what to do?
Track Name: Filament Shake
you rattle the bulb
burnt out long ago,
plant the filament
you know it won’t grow

shake shake shake shake shake

and you only talk about you only talk about me I only talk about me I only talk about you only talk about you only talk about me I only talk about me I only talk about

I stayed up all night
ringing thoughts of you
from my sopping brain
green with your mildew
green from you

toss turn toss toss turn

and you only talk about you only talk about me I only talk about me I only talk about you only talk about you only talk about me I only talk about me I only talk about

shake shake shake shake shake

my mind loops and loops
my hair has no curls
Is there something else?
Is there something else?

Track Name: Is This a Terrarium?
a bird in a cage isn’t a bird at all
I don’t remember the word
just the color and the shape
a bird in a cage isn’t a bird at all

Is this this this this a movie?
terrarium electric sun
peel the orange of your life
tomorrow peel another one

a bird in a cage isn’t a bird at all
I don’t remember the word
just the color and the shape
a bird in a cage isn’t a bird at all

orange on the kitchen table
new super nova in the sink
each windowpane’s a waterfall
another day, another week

cold toast morning
dry eyes sunrise
stormy Coffee
am I outside?

apricot jam

cold toast morning
dry eyes sunrise
stormy Coffee
am I outside?

apricot jam

I wake up in the sun!
I wake up in the sun!
I wake up in the sun!
I wake up in the sun!
