Riverstomp

There was a man He spent a time He was filled in the night Yeah, he spilled and he died He wake a dream At the river edge See the line out to the water See the barge pulling in And the wind go: Ooo. He tippy toe He grope ahead See another hundred dozen Shufflin into the ship He push to lead His body red He starts a screaming For the captain’s head Yeah he said: ... The water move The ship afloat And the man size up the captain Look a hundred years old He said: No son of mine Was lied to bed Where’s the treatment I’m awarded Since I paid for this trip (And the captain said:) Oh, my lovely son Oh, my child­born All my passengers Get what they think they earned When you think of me, You build your home at sea When you dream of me, I feel it. And on the way, some men were drowned For shore they swam, hearts weighed with doubt The man, he wait at captain’s hip And, soft, the captain said: I will go down with this ship.

Safari

What’s all the hurry? Where’s all the time? What was I learning? I don’t need it Find my a forest Fetch me the sky Where was my worry? I don’t need it I trade my lessons for a mend And lay my pressures to the fence I’ll pay my debtors from the end Cause hell this ain’t the end Let’s go on safari Let’s see what we find There’s no need to hurry I don’t mind it We’ve only our story We’ve no need for time If they find it boring I don’t mind it I wave my presence of pretense And save my questions for the end I trade my obsession of a sense The sense has met it’s end And oh I grew too fast Oh where was my heart? And I wanted death To quit a bleeding spark So back to the strain Of the far off run And I will chew my reign Because I am not done Let’s go where the dark is Let’s go where we fear We’ll try where the heart is I can find it We’ll dig up the bone yard We’ll burn what we see We’ll shoot the horizon I can find it I wave my presence of pretense And save my questions for the end I trade my obsession of a sense The sense has met it’s end And oh I grew too fast Oh where was my heart? And I wanted death To quit a bleeding spark So back to the strain Of the far off run And I will chew my reign Because I am not done It’s not like you lost a friend It’s not like you lost a brother It’s not like you lost your arm It’s only the end of the start And oh I grew too fast Oh where was my heart? And I wanted death To quit a bleeding spark So back to the strain Of the far off run And I will chew my reign Because I am not done

Fever

Old heart, it was already done You had your hand bright red at the neck of the gun And you’re never ever home when you’re given to run Split smart, we were already dumb Spending another summer Sunday a companion to none And when our aim’s this sharp then we’ve already won Old heart, you were already dead Using words out of a college that you didn’t attend But if you talk real loud then they’ll never suspect Truth ain’t failure, confidence a sin Suture jigsaw Ruthless tailors, our words build again Future Minotaur C’mon c’mon! It’s easy when you’re cheating C’mon c’mon! It’s more than just a feeling C’mon c’mon! You’re only ever dreaming C’mon c’mon! And get your body seething Old parts, but you’re almost as young And you only ever argue when you’ve already won And you’re never ever over when you haven’t begun Worth ain’t ease – misunderstand’s the word Morning cigarette First paint’s pealing, fundamental curse: The moment’s never over yet C’mon c’mon! It’s easy when you’re cheating C’mon c’mon! It’s more than just a feeling C’mon c’mon! You’re only ever dreaming C’mon c’mon! And get your body seething Hello, old friend, the years have been split cells Old heart of mine I think we should get well C’mon c’mon! It’s easy when you’re cheating C’mon c’mon! It’s more than just a feeling C’mon c’mon! You’re only ever dreaming C’mon c’mon! And get your body seething

Maya Dances Trees

Maya sleeps just 20 feet above me But I think she’s got a higher sense She can hear the wild woods’ wide walking The tremble of an eon’s step We were asleep at speed At the seething beat’s request And Maya called us to the patio’s edge And in the chorus of her limbs, we read Yeah they said: Oh Oh Oh­Whoa­Oh... We set our heads out to the fired horizon The orbit showing us it was there We sent our hands up to the sky’s dividers Fought the dryness in the error of air And in the stinging heat The beat’s repeated tow We made the water cover every inch Sung every leaf and herb and stone They shone, we go: Oh Oh Oh­Whoa­Oh... Oh Oh Oh­Whoa­Oh...

Can't Sleep

If I blew myself a kiss Wouldn’t you think something was amiss? If I could grow myself again What to keep and what to weed away I need you If I put all my faith in you Just how soon would you make me regret the move? Like a cousin to the wind shapes ain’t cement, snakeskin’s all we’re in Still, i need you Can’t rely on anyone anymore Sell me something more than what you’d like Blood’s not enough, promise me your time I can’t rely on anyone anymore I can’t sleep it’s all these dreams of all I’ve been before
