Track Name: AAAHHHLways
I love you
You are the one
The only one
I love you
Always will
Track Name: Luck
Sometime a crumb falls from the tables of joy
Sometimes a bone is flung
To some people love is given
To others, only heaven
Track Name: Oh Light
I'm not bound up in all this work that I do
I'm not bound up in anything that I create
I am, and I watch the drama of the things I touch
And then the new day of time begins
and brings them into light again and again and again

Oh light of all true minds
How do you prefer to pass the time?

Around and around in circles my boy
To me, time is a form of joy.

I am, and I watch the drama of the things I touch
Track Name: Silver Spermies
You are my beginning, my middle and my end
but mostly the beginning
where I begin again
You make my face tickle
My eyes to stare
A sea of silver spermies floating through the air

My ears are never tired to hear about your life
My thought are few
But my thoughts on you
Fill my head with light

You are my beginning, my middle and my end
But mostly the beginning
Where I begin again
Track Name: Gross of Heart
He is gross of heart

I feel rotten deep inside
Rotten to the core
I cross my heart and hope to die
I don't want to live no more

Every dream I sabotage
Every dream I ruin
Now I dream out in the garage and idling is all I'm doing

I don't want to live no more
And I don't want to lie
That's the truth of what I feel
Cross my heart and hope to die

I feel rotten deep inside

Thought if I made happy tunes
Then happiness would let me in
But happiness is for the good
Lord knows I'm not one of them

I feel rotten inside
Track Name: Bachelors in Despair
Beetle landed on the hay
Beetle landed and began to play
Then the shoe fly came around
Charmed and taken by the sound
Swiftly jumped across the fence
Swiftly jumped and began to dance
Then 10 mosquitos saw her there
A band of bachelors in despair
They couldn't help it
They couldn't help but stare
Because the shoe fly was so fair
And all of them were so damn weary
All of them itching to get married
Then the darkness sank the sun
And a mighty fight begun
One could see the flashing lights
Of insects taking each other's lives
Then the fly, in a deadly fright
Gently whispered: "Why the fight?"
I'm still too young to get married
And you're too ugly
And you're too hairy
Then a big tornado came along
And the misquotes and the flies were gone
Track Name: No In & Out
I came in because the door was open
I came in because I saw a light
Did you leave these clues
because you wanted me too
Or just to see if I could get inside

You coved me up in blanket of colors pure and proud
Your tent is where I want to be
I ain't no in and out

Your tent is a quiet tent
Planted firm in the ground
While I'm here I don't feel sick
And I can't be taken down

You coved me up in blanket of colors pure and proud
Your tent is where I want to be
I ain't no in and out
Track Name: Rest Easy
The delights of the ear one entangled all my being
Every melody I'd hear used to really have a hold on me.
Then you gave me rest and now I can rise up whenever I wish

Even now, with that old silver chain, I can find a little peace
They don't hold me down
No, they set me free

It's easy to rest now that I know I can rise up whenever I wish
Track Name: Formless
Beings with a form suggest a certain kind of formlessness
Reason's in the mind, I guess
But it really doesn't matter what the reason is
I have put it to the test and nature has made it manifest
That beings with a form possess distinct formlessness

It's almost nothing
It's almost fine
It doesn't change time

It's tricky to tell
Which one's the real one and which one is the golem
It's tricky as hell
You have to go where there is no one
Where there is no form
To be reborn in a certain kind of formlessness
Track Name: Wish I had Your Face
Oh god I wish I had your face
I'm just one of your children
Easily tricked by your shadow
I prefer this side of the pool because it's warm
not because it's shallow
What I would give to have your face
Track Name: Why do you keep to yourself
In my life I never got used to you being with me and you thinking by yourself.
We are too of one heart, you and I
Why do you keep to yourself?
