Track Name: High Five
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.
Track Name: Wet Pillow
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

Track Name: Friends
little sister, if you should ever want or need a friend
you can call me up and i'll listen
and we can talk 'til the early hours
i'll write you letters and send you flowers
little sister, if you ever want or need a friend

little sister, well, these are my friends and they're real cool
we don't have to worry 'bout no grades at school
dead end jobs, well, they're a drag
but we hang out and it's so rad
little sister, these are my friends and they're real cool

and little sister, if you should ever wanna spend the night
please say so, i'll do my best not to bite
i'll do the best, the best that i can
to accommodate the breadth of your plans
little sister, if you'd ever wanna spend the night

and in that moonlight, oh, in the sunlight, it feels the same
i'm just a, a couple eyeballs staring out my brain
oh, what should i do today?
it doesn't matter, what i do's okay
little sister, i'm just eyeballs looking out of my brain
Track Name: You Got Be Tough
i'm gonna miss her a lot
yeah, i'm-a miss her a lot
but i'm-a give 'er all i got
yeah, i'm-a give ya what i got

so please be good to me, babe
don't try to bring me down
i'll have plenty of time for that
dressed-up underground
and as i'm ridin' high
i won't care if i fall
it's better to have lived and lost
than never lived at all

girl, you've been smashing through my mind
yea, you been gettin' all my time
you spill my blood, you struck me blind
i don't know where to draw the line

and i've been havin' nightmares
nightmares just for you
and, oh i hate how i love
all the little things you do
so, yea be gentle with me, girl
please don't break my soul
you got me by the ghost
you are in control

too late to run, no place to hide
they'll lay abe lincoln on our eyes
i see our friends and family cry
oh, babe, oh please don't tell no lies

'cause it ain't hard, no
not hard to tell the truth
i never took you for a coward
so don't you give 'em proof
and you said you was really real, girl
but is you real enough?
to admit that you were wrong
you got be tough
Track Name: Wild Child
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
Track Name: Paradise
all the people in the world, stay movin'
don't stop now, keep doin' what you're doin'
don't dog-ear your dreams, just push on through 'em
they say it can't be done, but i'll disprove 'em

you've been tellin' them all along
you do it better and they do it wrong
such a head on your shoulders, your will is so strong
gonna put you on top right where you belong

i gaze into the future and it's paradise
everyone is happy, everything is nice
got it all figured out, i don't need their advice
not takin' any chances, not rolling all y'all's dice

so climb up aboard this big old spaceship earth
and we'll blast off across the universe
fly around forever in laughter and mirth
we've been destined for the stars ever since our birth
Track Name: Summer House
went to the summer house
the very next day
went to the summer house
it had washed away

you say that you love me
but i know that that's not true
oh the things that you do

went to the summer house
the very next day
went to the summer house
it had washed away

they say it gets better
but i'm just passing through
oh the things that you do
Track Name: Happy As An Ant
happy as an ant in its colony
i've grown much stronger than i used to be
i have a purpose now, which i could not see
and i'm lifting things up to twenty times heavier than me

well, life was so hard-seemed nothing was okay
and i've done some things that i'd rather not say
but it's been a long time and, lord, i changed my ways
and i swear i feel a little taller each and every day

*

and to all my friends i've lost along the way
yet you may not listen, well, i still want to say
oh lord, forgiveness, 'tis but a needle in the hay
but my head's in the clouds and that's where my head is gonna stay

*
Track Name: That's Untrue
i fall in love with everybody that i meet
- fall in love with everyone you meet
and you know what? i'm completely insane
- yeah man, completely insane
and i get so angry i can't shut-up
- you know i could never shut-up
i always got something to say
- always got somethin' good to say

and you know i could never stop
running my mind
my motor-mouth is moving
most of the time
- but no one's listening!

i'm not tryin' to get with you
so, tell your sisters and your brother
that's untrue

i thought of something last night that would blow your brain
- thought of somethin' that would blow your brain
i'm talking about world peace
- yeah, i'm talking 'bout world peace
and you know it's hard being me
- it's kinda hard being me
being a genius don't come easily
- bein' jesus ain't easy

i travel all over
and what do i find?
a lot of hateful people
calling romance a crime
- but what about poetry?!

i'm not tryin' to get with you
so, tell the police and your husband
that's untrue

and just because i'm a boy
it doesn't mean that i'm all about you
and just because i wanna give you a tulip
it doesn't mean i can't live without you!

i'm not tryin' to get with you
so, tell your priest and your professors
that's untrue

i'm not tryin' to get with you
so, tell your mama and your papa
that's untrue
Track Name: July
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

*
Track Name: Slight Of Hand
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!
