Track Name: 12 to One
Swollen Knees
And dry mouth kisses
Left for dead
In a mine of misses
Sweet to follow
She led me in
A hole so hollow
She let me in
Twelve to one
Call me later
Used to love, her
Now I hate her
Bears have teeth
Bears have nails
Bears have teeth
Bears have nails
Honey cub black
Nest like fur
Rounded my spine
Slept through winter
Sweet to follow
She led me in
A hole so hollow
She let me in
Twelve to one
Call me later
Used to love, her
Track Name: Crushing Clouds
I am lost,
while standing quiet still
I am lost
like a lonely water bill
I can feel
a wave of dark despair
I can feel
my lungs collapsing air
Clouds sinking
Clouds crushing me down
I can see
A ship lost at sea
I can see
A better version of me
I can hear
A voice inside my head
I can hear him wishing me to bed
Clouds sinking
Clouds crushing me down
Clouds falling
Clouds crushing me down
It's blowing me around
Then crushing me down
I am lost,
while standing quiet still
I am lost
like a lonely water bill
I can feel
a wave of dark despair
I can feel
my lungs collapsing air
Clouds sinking
Clouds crushing me down
Clouds falling
Clouds crushing me down
Track Name: Tired Moon Eyes
Terminal life
Dissolved in light
Squint and teary tired moon eyes
You’ll sleep when the sun dies… again
Sweep and swept away, you fly
To this place where blossoms die… again
Terminal life
Dissolved in light
Sun spot shine, orange tree groves
Meeting that stranger you don’t know… again
Pale face bourbon, buttoned flask
A million questions you can’t ask…again
Terminal life
We all fall from grace
Dissolved in light
Tempted by the taste
Terminal life
We all fear our fate
Dissolved in light
We all hate to
Wait, for the bus to hit
Wait, for the crime to commit
Wait, for the world, for the world
Wait, for a friendly smile
Wait, it’s gonna take a while
Wait, for the world, for the world
Terminal life
Dissolved in light
Squint and teary tired moon eyes
You’ll sleep when the sun dies… again
Track Name: Strung Photographs
I’ve been thinking about
Love, and loss, and the cost of being a friend
Can we be so kind and not
To hurt, to hate to give into faith my dear
You make me smile and laugh
Strung photographs
You make me smile and laugh
Strung photographs on a string
Will I love, you ask
Forever my dear, can you hear, me sigh
Will you walk with me through
This life, till the white shining light, dims
You make me smile and laugh
Strung photographs
You make me smile and laugh
Strung photographs on a string
You make me smile and laugh
Strung photographs
You make me smile and laugh
Strung photographs on a string
Track Name: No Such Language
I don't know such language
I only know love
I keep it inside me
It bleeds It bleeds
Mountains surround me
Like a gang of gods sprouting green fern knifes
It bleeds It bleeds
You spit and laugh at me
You are better than me
You spit and laugh, you can't see
We all bleed, we all bleed
Track Name: Two Fold
Eyes twitch in a knot
He holds on to something he don't got
Clever line a lie he told
12345678 two fold
two fold
Lip pierced and a pony tail
The good book says you're going to hell
A lovely smile to behold
12345678 two fold
two fold
Too old, two fold
Size 10 pink wheels
Mustache real deal
Slow song solid gold
12345678 two fold
Two fold
Too bold Too bold
Track Name: Normal, IL
He wakes up to a warm wind breeze
Shakes and sweats from his disease
He hopes to die with some dignity
Has a living will from A to Z
A Day in Normal, Illinois
No way to live
A day in Normal, Illinois
Normal No More
The house he built so tall was dust
Red heated flames were much too much
The films and pictures all went up
Like the ones he loved and could not touch
A Day in Normal, Illinois
No way to live
A day in Normal, Illinois
Normal No More
The dress he wore was low strapped tied
He's worn it since they day she died
The closet shared his place to hide
Mascara black runs from his eyes
A Day in Normal, Illinois
No way to live
A day in Normal, Illinois
Normal No More
Track Name: Death Of A Salesman
I am learning to like myself, like myself, like myself
I am learning to like myself, like myself, like myself
Like Me,
Like Me,
I don't really like myself, like myself, like myself
I don't really like myself, like myself, like myself
Hate Me,
Hate Me,
I could never sell myself, sell myself, sell myself,
I could never sell myself, sell myself, sell myself,
I could never kill myself, kill myself, kill myself,
Or try to be like someone else, someone else, someone else
Track Name: Montreal
I’m a lonely soul
I’m a man all alone
I’m a sheep in wolves’ clothes
I’m a man alone
You’re a woman I’m told
Knows how to be cold
You have never been that way
to me
We’re going to be together
Until the green falls off the leaves
The blue runs off the sea
The red is gone from me
Let’s leave it behind
Let’s travel across the borderline
Montreal or nothing…
at all
I’m a lonely soul
I’m a man all alone
I’m a sheep in wolves’ clothes
I’m a man alone
