Track Name: LA
I feel LA in the back of your eyes it kills me
Untie my shoes undress my shirt my fear
Pour me a cup of love, a cup that tastes like beer.
I live in LA and it proves to be nice, nice to me
But I left my home, I gave back all my keys
It makes me left, makes me what’s left of me
Life is still in the way, in the way of your dreams everyday
Let’s get out of town let’s go to the highest peak
I won’t wait for you, be strong now don’t be weak
Track Name: Rolling in the Grass
You have the strangest visions
I see your silhouette involved in another
Day of weather
Talking back from astronaut to astronaut babe I
asked you not to stray with the sheep, come lay
down with us wolves

I suck in the very people
we have trained to kill the evil
Let me please remind you
who you are
Get off of my tree now--climb down
Roll your eyes and set your feet down
I’ll be right behind you
go ahead of me. lady.

Mrs. Lovely-Dovely bake a pie
make it your very best
your medicine can save me, I will okay babe
This will be the day that we will
roll out in the grass together
cars won’t run us over
make love on the sofa

I give the king a kiss on
his big fat king ring that sits on
a hand extended towards me
who am I
looking out from the very top
You can see the end and where it stops
let me please remind you
who you are

I will sing a simple song
picture me holding a gun out against the sunset
there I breathe
I look back when you are not
You take my mind, you haunt my thoughts
right against the sunset
there I breathe

I love your sweet biology
how did you come to take hold of me
I love your talk, I love your letters,
Let’s read them out loud together!!!
Track Name: Father and Song
Father and Song writing out the day.
To scare the little ones, scare them right away.
Do you believe them, all the things I say?
Well I speak the truth now, so don’t be turned away.

Don’t mistake me, or confuse my words
I’m using English, so I can be heard
a common language, do not be disturbed
your beauty kills me, you bright uncommon bird

Did you get enough there? Was there enough for you?
I don’t believe oh, all these things you do.
I got some heart in me, I got some heart for you.
Until I have you, I will sing untill I’m blue.

I guess I won’t ask you anymore
Track Name: A Sick Man Follows A Stranger
Days are Dark, In my hours I am sickness, I have not been
Able to leave this sorrowful house Emptiness was here My strength will never return.
I have seen the man He beckons Iwill he get me out of here?
I will trust him tomorrow.
7 hearts have proved to me that
working on your strengths doesn’t
count on eachother, like a mother like a son
I remember my dreams all of them

I didn’t know the purpose of the world There’s no control here

find the other person,
strings were attached from the beginning
she loves you she wants you to go to her
Leave now before she thinks you’re lying

We lit a match and told us everything
He kept our voices down
As we were watched
And I realized that he was the liar
Track Name: The Mystery Game
I love the mystery game
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
Maybe one day it will all be “poof” and gone again!!?
This is how the story will roll: “La la” Counting, singing, into:
Finding out that we might be you.
This is a slow trip in the summer. Maybe I’ll see you next summer.

I love the mystery game
All the money we have spent is finding it’s way back
to the source of money so that we can earn it back
I punched my time card into your slot so that you knew
that for today I am through
Track Name: First Sight
I recall the time with a twist and a smile.
I wrapped my fist on the door.
You shook your head; your hair followed your “no”
You made it clear what it was.
I didn’t care. I was getting lost
I wanted to find the good gold at the bottom
of a red rainbow because it was my gold that I lost in an effective storm
But I never got it back, and I couldn’t understand at all--why
So you retreated to your heart and reinforced the walls with gum.

The next 10 years were bitter, straight, and long.
I did not forget you, but the cold must keep on.
Then everything suddenly changed. we were not prepared.
Your life just simply melted away. Oh no oh no oh no
And I fell straight into love with you the moment that you died
My heart turned itself in right when your eyelids gave up.
Someone once told me this:c “When you become to attached to something, it is a gift when that something is taken away.”
Track Name: The Cinder Mint
Your abscence tastes the cinder mint
I will take you with my medicine
over the table of the room we’re in)
I won’t back down, to you push me off
My writings shelter all my lonely thoughts.
I feel warmer in the daily sun,
It’s hard enough to break me down,
I can’t wait for once.

people like me love people like you and
every gesture all the things you do
record themselves make me something brand
and every time I feel alone
your memory gets inside and makes it’s home
but that’s okay because I love it all
this times oh so different because you’re it all
Track Name: Remembrance
Under the hill, there’s a girl who thinks she’s dead.
She reminds of somone else who she hangs upon her head
I think it's you.....
I’d live if I were you, if I had had your name
I’d count all my numbers through youth untill old age is the pain
But that's okay
there's a hole that she hides in, she walks into webs and she gets spiders on her
I'm never going to pull her out even if she were my daughter
she can stay theere.....
she'll be safe at least, down in that hole
I'm fighting a beast, and at least I'm not cold
I will stay here.....

It’s the last lip of the sun just before it has set and
the night is upon you.
It’s the last thing you can remember before falling asleep
the night before
It’s the last bit of land that you can see before
the ocean completely surrounds you.
It’s the last bit of words you read in a book before burning it
Track Name: The Well is Dry
The well is dry. What will we drink from?.
If we don't drink, we will die.

The wind is gone. So the air hangs like a corpse from last week.
At least I'm alone.
