Track Name: Where on to Our Shoulders
We go where onto our shoulders we go
The progress of the moon slows down to follow
If you arrive first
place the stones somewhere in the first 1,000 words
It's an invitation that hosts no curse
Now everything beyond goes further

We do what onto our noses we do
with permission from each pole we let ourselves be fooled
Your canyons destroy but they do not create
If you cannot pretend then you will never reign
There is no other devil than the one that is in our heart
on the left side of my chest he's got his butt parked
Forty big and forty small streets take the great gifts god has given me
You can feed me apples and make me think it's already ending

People carry the weight of the world sometimes
while some people never have anything to compromise
Always the mist inside my voice listens
and sings you arching back into its opinion
It can only guess the light that shines from the corner of your lips
and digs red clay on gold shapes to house man and women
You arrived here first to place what shows
somewhere in the first 1,000 words
It's an invitation that hosts some curse
now everything beyond goes further
Track Name: Wooden Maria
Wooden maria
wooden maria
wooden maria
her kisses will tease you
unless you can deceive her

With three pretty dresses
with three pretty dresses
with three pretty dresses
all of her choosing
none of which she'll want to go losing

Maria made a list
the first dress had a fish
the fish sang every hour
then turned into a flower
the flower bloomed too soon
then grew into the moon
the moon did all that it could
but rotted into wood
and floated down the river
past her baby-sitter
who was blowing kisses
to all of the handsome princes'

Half of our lives then
half of our lives then
half of our lives then
her hands in warm water
and the ring still round her finger from her father

Everything and nothing
everything and nothing
everything and nothing
but Maria wanted something
and to make these advances she knew she'd have but three chances

Maria started to dance
but a boot kicked her in the pants
She tried to blow some bubbles
but they were popped by some shovels
Singing was her last hope
til she was choked by a rope
Knowing this wasn't her night
Maria went home to make things right

You can die from laughing
you can die from laughing
you can die from laughing
if you hold it in for too long

Maria made a pizza pie
three items she put inside
The first was a tailor's pin
so we all can taste our sin
The second was the ring on her finger
so on our tongues tradition will linger
The third was a beggar's token
so the channels of the rich are broken
Maria baked all through the night
so we all can have a bite

Wooden maria
wooden maria
wooden maria
she'll love you and then she'll leave you
Track Name: In the Heat of the Day
The moods fell over
the violence varied
in the heat of the day
The intersection
of the searches
in the heat of the day
Where you are
wait for me there
in the heat of the day
Ordinary minds
hiding
in the shade

The world as
town and family only
in the heat of the day
Don't it feel good
to study the rain
in the heat of the day
The heart behind
beats not to catch
in the heat of the day
The leading hand is price
but we will not pay

Show me the instruments the seedy and common equipment

The sleep tears
dried our eyes shut
in the heat of the day
Our open arms
holding nothing at all
in the heat of the day
Ready for when
to go again
in the heat of the day
The road is long
the way we are going
in the heat of the day
There is no strength
in enduring
the heat of the day
If we stop to ask
the swan
at the bottom of the lake

Show me the instruments the seedy and common equipment

Boom-c-boom

Winters come to steal Cairo's child
Rime rolls her bones and her breath
And cold bells toll the coming of old age and certain death
Track Name: The Kind of Happiness I Can Sing About
Where do we wake with our dreams
underneath the hawthorne tree
Where do we find golden keys
underneath the rowan tree
Where do we pen purposefully
underneath the ivy tree

Where into the water first goes our feet
underneath the willow tree
Where on to each other do we never say please
underneath the cherry tree
Where does each day leave with its entirety
underneath the walnut tree

God damn prime meridian
you don't know how dry I am

"My eyes may never shed
such a storm of love again”

The kind of happiness I can sing about!

God damn prime meridian
you don't know how dry I am
“My eyes may never shed
such a storm of love again”

The kind of happiness I can sing about!

Where do we ask questions 1, 2 and 3
underneath the cedar tree
Where do we perform action, thought and deed
underneath the sycamore tree
Where does each day leave with its entirety
Track Name: A Big Hole Buried Once
I've never been more proud of your mouth
or riled by eventual task
Let us interact like two drunk actresses
I'll represent you if you represent me
in a different order and for some different reason
moving at the same speed
moving further away

It's mostly harps passed
in concert laid back playing only stops
It's recognized as device
so I take from it only what I like

There's no more room around this cup
there are too many lips pressed
There's no more room around this cup
there are two too many lisps pressed

Daniel's in love

I was a big hole buried once
I wasn't even that much
There's no more room around this cup
Lucky for us the arbor kept indoors
the water kept in arbor share the same neck
And it's body is still standing at the foot of our bed
And it's always with breath in abundance
and lamb in its stomach
it only keeps quiet
can't gather enough spit
Simply put she is a perfect fifth
played on a counter top
I mean a mountain top meant for morning drip
Into father's breakfast cup
If and when this culture gets removed from his gut
The ending can finish up

The rubbing coming through the wire
the effect of eating sand
share the same neck
Track Name: Modesty
Your sounds do not go
by way of shared air
they're kept in a bank
and do what they're told
Your timing's not late
it's just kept on your side
The hands that you lay on your Martha they fold and grow

Vaginas are garages
or however it is you say it goes
You'll write of your cock
and the grief that it holds
You'll lay on your back
and watch it explode
with nowhere to go
it'll run down your throat
and come out your nose
and back down your throat
it does what it's told
Track Name: The Silver Duh
This town's a special place
made up of friends so great
From my beating heart they take
all of the fear and hate

I gave god back my name
she didn't want it anyway
I'm not myself now but I'll always remain
The action that I make

Love and courage fusing shape
what a way to celebrate
death to anyone who does not change
I'm still learning how to say:

You make me a braver
and better human being
Track Name: The Moon You Woke Me To
Put the gold back in the earth
with the master of the mint
standing thus then felt foolish
On the ground frogs asleep
and eagles doing eagle things
flotsam leaving blank
and rats use all their weight
underneath the moon you woke me to
