Track Name: Faucet: pantopon battery
its always better
when you're not really there

gumdrop faucet
for real
a two stands
foot in the way
of every name
that i've made

im propaganda

pen pills me in
pull pin me in
subtle graph my barbeque
that shakes me like
the back of a sheep's
throat

once again
i'm in love with a dead end
i've chewed the fat with angels
who humored me for comfort.

what more can i give
than my soul and my kids?
cut me some sky
bold fat lighter
fluent in the language
of mustang dreams,
and battery acid.
Track Name: Naked Lunch Scherzo
someone turn it off
this is the entourage
it's in my head
and i laugh just like a balloon's burst
paper head the typewriter
entourage my hotel room
my room's silent keys
my room's silent keys

can't control the backspin can't can't
can't control the backspin can't can't
can't control the backspin can't can't
can't control the backspin can't can't

don't tell me that it hurts
i'm at a loss for words
someone turn it off
this isn't my entourage
just burn it to the ground
pull out the wires now
these are not my typewriters
burn it to the ground

i am not an intelligent
these are stop signs arms at cross
smokes and laughs and curses
takes me like a sunday
laugh it off on sunday
someone please i'm out of here
turn it off and burn it down
burn it to the ground
turn it off and burn it down

can't control the backspin can't can't
can't control the backspin can't can't
can't control the backspin can't can't
can't control the backspin can't can't

i'm scared but i'll see you in the next life
saved by a ring
'cause you didn't turn it off
turn it off tomorrow and laugh it off on sunday
Track Name: Sisyphus\Absurd
i've seen the faces of
women who love like spiders
who walked away from christmas
it's hard to think about
what i'd give
to do it again

cry tomorrow
'cause i know where
i'm going
and laugh it off
'cause i don't know when

we write songs
on bricks and walls
to make the long burn
red and gray
right before the stones all fall
it was the most beautiful
cell phone ring that
i can recall

cry tomorrow
'cause i know where
i'm going
and laugh it off
'cause i don't know when

pass me by
satellites
i'm not techno dancing trooper
i fight with verbs
and battle words
i'm not much one for winning
Track Name: Minotaur, Violet Eyes, and Complicated Equations
lion graffiti
and complicated equations
i haven't felt so much
in so long

crumble

i couldn't help the
turn around
bracing myself
and all of my figures

crumble

for creation
all on my side
nothing left to fear
oh cross signed turn around

tear open the sky
with this turn around.
Track Name: Two Thousand Pyramids and How I Never Came Back
I woke up
in two thousand pyramids
and i walked the holy
lands to find the
mountains
but they were clumsy
and they had
disappeared

all these dummies
they still appeal to me

you fell into the ark
spiral down
you fell into the ark
oh i'll follow down

I believed
in the symphonies
and i walked down
to see her stood
but she was clumsy
and she had
disappeared

all these dummies
they still appeal to me

you fell into the ark
spiral down
you fell into the ark
oh i'll follow down

where's the message
past the pieces
i can see that moving
leases uncomfortable
catastrophe and
burning bridges
in between us
i can see that
i'm defeated
walking raining
journalism
embodiments of
all our jesus
fits the cover
of magazines and
color codes the women breathing
moon a shinin'
hospital
doctors winning
all night long
they were clumsy
i was winning
spiders spinning
silk and gold and
liquid pinchin
snakes and rhythm
love and sinnin'
it's all about the
all night long
i'm in love but
i'm a winner
burning bridges
eating lizards
monday bending
i'm a friend of
all the times that
pass me by
mornin' swimmin'
cashin in a
chance to feel a
girls lying
trying buying
to pass the time by
acting like
shes such a steal
my children singing
eating sitting
paying rent and
living dying
people trying
fucking, lying
burn the bridges
and wash them down.
Track Name: Dead Lips Smile Seaweed
it's four o'clock
and the door is heavy
it's four o'clock
and the door is heavy

it's over and i'm over
too
monday's running
and i'm the left hand man i know
everything is going to be alright
it's going to be alright

it's all about what cigarettes entail
dead meat and old friends
i am nearing i am nearing i am nearing
i am nearing i am nearing i am nearing

it's four o'clock
and the door is heavy
it's four o'clock
and the door is heavy
it's four o'clock
dead lips pictures
pornography
heavy
it's four o'clock
and the door is pictures
pornography and the door is dead nearing
all about old friends breathing smile
i am over i am dead lips smile

get the police and ask them to find
the thieves inside my head
turnstiles drift and particles lift
their skirts for einstein's eyes

it's four o'clock
and the door is heavy
it's four o'clock
and the door is heavy
it's four o'clock
and the door is pictures
pornography and the door is dead nearing
all about old friends breathing smile
i am over
dead lips smile
Track Name: Benway
I've lost my way
I took enough
it woke me up
It's cold but
I can
Hear the cars
Fell what hitting you

Hold on a second
Has not
Supplied
Handle
The junk
So I roll my eyes
When you're not around
