High Five 04:29
well, i love her and everything that she do i've done my laundry, i put on my fancy shoes i dress to impress and brush my teeth - well, it's the same damn song i hear every goddamn day on the radio and in your headphones walkin' my way well, the sounds from the streets and my life, we're such a mess but, i'm so bored and, at night, i'm so restless but do you got something, something for me? something to cure my ills do you got something different? i do believe i've lost my will. well, i'm surprised i even care enough to finish what i've begun everybody's always jumping through hoops playing along but, i'm cool, i'm so cool-all my friends are big rock-stars haven't i, i, i, i, i, i seen your face someplace before? but do you got something, something for me? something to set me free? everything's just a bottle, just another pill i do believe i've lost my sex drive. stay alive goodbye, high five.

Wet Pillow 03:33
i was laying in bed in the middle of the night when suddenly, oh, to my blood came a fright the hand of a giant, a cold wooden floor my eyes, they were closed - in my heart was a mirror and when i looked there's nothing there but in my mind (i see) red fingernails. i stepped to the ground, "it was circular" blue said to orange in solemn abjure she sought to purchase the other one's pants they settled the matter with compliments but when i look there's no one there and then i look and there you are! so let the snow fall on the canyon and all the headlights be just holes footprints of your feathered boots, so dashing and my cap, so debonair millions and millions, millions of bunnies wiggle their ears, and growling their tummies diasporic rabbits, twitching their noses nibbling the pricks from all the tips of the roses and in the sand, out in the sun it is a purr but the man who's not a man he is a chair *

Wild Child 04:26
well, when i'm happy i tell myself that she loves me but maybe she hates me, maybe who knows and i can feel the blood in my hands as i twirl 'cross the room with my feet here planted right on the floor and in all their bitter cacophony don't they seem to make sweet melody? wild animals in the night through the jungle hear them call wild animals in the night fearless creatures big and small well, when i'm angry i tell myself that i hate her but maybe i love her, maybe who knows and why should i spend my life drinking the ocean just to greet all my dawns with naught but prickly pores? and in all their bitter cacophony don't they seem to make sweet melody? wild animals in the night through the darkness hear them call wild animals in the night fearsome creatures one and all wild animals in the night through the jungle hear them call wild animals in the night ferocious creatures big and small wild animals in the night make such sweet melody wild animals in the night sing a song for you and me wild animals in the night through the darkness hear them call wild animals in the night silly creatures one and all

July 02:48
i had a lover, i have friend i have a brother, he'll die in the end i have a sister, i envied her smiles i have some faces i'll not see in a while but i've got memories so shiny and new o'er green grass, 'low skies azure and if you catch me, a bat out of hell well, i'll have secrets, some secrets to tell -o, why don't you run on back to her? oh, no, i can't. oh, no i- -why won't you let yourself be happy? why should i? no, how could i? -why won't you just let love be? o, julia, my future is running away with me. i have a mother, she's given so much i had a father, a farther as such i have a family, a childhood home i had a bedroom whence i grew-up alone but, o, the meaning, the beauty i've found these crazy people all beating around we've all got memories, places so dark stowed safe right through the lies of our hearts * -i remember, i remember we we're singing in the summer sun -i remember, i remember swimming, laughing-we were having fun -i remember, i remember kissin' deep beneath the summer moon before the month of august and after june *
12.
i'm-a have my revenge i'll prove it to them big secret 'til then: my love's an awl of poison. and i will no longer cast shadow on the ground and i shall not feel the rain nor fright at lightning striking down! but please, please don't misunderstand me. can you feel as we hug? as you're gagged, bound, and drugged discreet satin gloves, my love- sweet filth on your rug. * in my guarded lair filled with rind, smoke, and tears my venom, with seed and spit distilled unto fear. though, i will not venture forth for-horror!-i'd be found and i shall no longer 'come familiar, with naught but the weight of the ground! but please, please don't misunderstand me. 'cause all, all voices have gone... my story, who i am-'twas all but a sleight-of-hand!
