Track Name: Open the Doors
Ever out steeple chasing
it must have calmed the bay
it must have stormed the harbour
cant see the forest fire for the trees

they wanted to see the bright lights
tonight or any other
comes the rebellious spectrum
with mustard stains
to move with the lantent joy
of bandera waves
stare down the barrel
it's the only way out

what a way to fill the room up:
your song & sing it right back

what a quiet toppling there
the body given to hardship
it's still a rose
Still a grassfire spreading
to see all the people
can't you see all the people?

Open the doors!
Track Name: Knight of Wands
At the end of the day
take off my work clothes
like I'm shedding skin
At the meet of crossed destinies
says the knave of cups: Affirm thyself
drink with me, drink it deep
swallow it whole
In the prescence of my enemies
I survey the table
and eat my belly full

strike out like fire
and move like king shit
dance with yr eyes closed
there is no one there
like you have the magic touch,
work around the dead keys
like they're a part of the scale
devil's waltz all down the block

I break the fence
I cut and run where the spirit leads
I shoulder the weight
every pound that's bound to my back
give me a hardship that I might sidestep it

give me a basketball hoop
that I might move through it
give me a hardship that I might transcend it

I overflow with spring
they can't touch me
I breathe a lungfill
they can't touch me
I am a knight of wands and
they can't touch me
with flower in my hair
they can't touch me
I am a knight of wands and
they can't touch me
I fly high on a P-wing
they can't touch me
I am a knight of wands and
they can't touch me
I'm a knight of wands
I'm a knight of wands
Track Name: Fullstack State of Mind
false alarm, that i live past today
build a wall that might crash through
arthritis or tinitus, a full dozen might do

I burn the candle at both sides now
and look for love in all the places
I cut a rug at both sides now
and look for love in all the places

To know I'm fully living
in my ears, a constant ringing

everything louder than everything
Track Name: Polybius
Shame and double shame
Move to the first-year step
like a line dancing trade

You were here
you were here you were here
and then,

disappears at night
the way reflection's change
without notice

You were here
you were here you were here
and then,
_____________

with a broad stroke
toss out the baby
let her lose to the sky

Let we placate
Give we calm
& freedom from ill-ease

But then the future moves
in haram or decay
the brittanica lost in the fire

Take your voice for granted
take your voice for granted
Tipper Gore sends her love

Not quite photographic
nothing nice nor nothing else
Not with a bang,
but a librarian hush
The cabinet was black
the game was siezure filled
Dead language on the list
growing in a cone of silence
Not with a bang,
but a librarian hush

Amidst the ever present sonics
Your kids are born dysphonic
I saw it with my own two eyes
I saw it with my own two eyes
Track Name: Kayfabe
My muscles don't hurt at all
I feel great today
I'm excited for another house show
I can't hear you now

I don't worry about my mortgage
I don't mind signing your breast either
I do it for the fans
I don't mind to drop to you

If you love the business, it loves you back
It's real, it's real, it's real
and I'm right where I want to be

Everything's just fine
Track Name: Detroit Tigers
Everywhere is here
My kingdom from above
from the warehouse roof
bought for a song:
inherit the median
envelop the street
inherit the earth,
or get pinched like the meek

Who let the lovers out
to kill all the tigers!
The Depression was cool
but want for another

ground like a pestle
street dust from spring
nothing grows in street salt
that winter will brave
they won't know the earth
like a farm boy will
I am overflowing
I am staid
Track Name: AAA Aardvark
consider the unsatisfied feaaling that haunts
suppose that you trade affirmations for taunts
light up the firewworks, let the banners fly
this birthday boy to raise a warcry

my silence for naught
& nothing nice to say
27 candles blown clear off
this birthday cake
The freshest kicks
and a laurels for my head
rather pop a cork than
drink this swill instead

95 demands, but one above all else:
Me first, me first forevrer
Me first, me first today
Me first, now all together
Me first, me first, me first
Track Name: Eat Sand
I got the keys from mom for the evening
I got that sweet, sugar taste of freedom
The Kerouac dream is alive in this sedan

I see that vanishing point on the horizon
I'm told that the sun also compromises
The Hemingway dream is one phone payment away

They want me to eat sand
but I don't wanna eat sand
I'd rather eat a million onions

I am a grown man
I am a grown man,
I tell the wall thus

They want me to eat sand
but I don't wanna eat sand
I'd rather sleep the day away

I am a grown man
I am a grown man
who's become accustomed to the taste of sand
Track Name: Street View
----------

He read she Gide
She read Plath
He walked down the old path
She threw out the leftovers from dinner

She made tea
He broke off a branch
She pulled the covers over her head
He watched the ripples move across the water

Behind the glass, there's something reverent
from the books, learn a lesson
blink from the light emerging from the coalmine

I stand & leave the chorus
I eat the plate that's placed before me
I lick the salt off of my fingers
I lick the salt off of my fingers
I lick the salt off of my fingers

I will not follow trevailers under RAW YOUTH
I can see feet kicking dust up STREET VIEW
& when I hit the podium, I spit STRAIGHT TRUTH
& with one flaming rad take aim and bore RIGHT THROUGH
