Track Name: always time
it catches up with you
it's more than a simple number
play a little drinking game
round new year's eve
and make all resolutions
all resolutions' binding
while everybody's laughing

oh, come, it's just a quick jog down memory lane

it catches up with you
bent all out of shape
something must get real
but like a good actor
you keep a cool straight face
while the voice in your head is screaming
and everybody's laughing..

'there's always time, always to start again..'
Track Name: my shooting star
my soft angel flutters her wings
flies into the night like a kiss of light
starshine painting up her desert sky
as she disappears into the night

i can make all the wishing i want now
all the wishing i want to my shooting star
i can spend my life
forever, looking out for my shooting star

time stops to take a breath with me
before i let myself sink into salty lips
time stops to take this breath with me
before i let go into dark and salty hips
Track Name: audrey in the rain
righteous skirt i'm supposed to work
bend or lose my head
put your fingers where it bled
so shrill and wet
yeh, just so fat and dead
we're childhood jack and little jill
oh what on earth is coming up my throat again

you're magnificent when spent
you're magnificent and spent

pose for me upon the bed
i'll paint you up all night long
until your bad luck's gone
until your luck is young again
man, all those little girls what do they know,
they spread their legs
just what do they know that you don't know best
nothing ever stopped you in that dress..

you're magnificent when spent
you're magnificent and spent


some audrey in the rain
isn't she who you always were..
home is in brazil in rio
home is anywhere
golden clouds up ahead
to be thrashed by wings
a belly full of stars
from all the fairy tales

what was never said is that i love you
with a love that's out of this world

oh what on earth fell out of my mouth again

you're magnificent when spent
you must be magnificent when spent..
Track Name: chest
here's to the spinning wheel, spinning
all the riders are getting dizzy
well, it's a marvel of clear blue sky
the best color of blue summer ice

what you want and what i need
are always very different things
what you want is killing me
what i need is special pills

you're so moody oh rudy
as you swing back and forth
oh rudy no

as the day is dimming
humor me
as the month is dimming
forget about me
as the year is dimming
forget about me..

always very different things..

nothing's making sense
there's no way left to tell what's going on
inside my chest...
what's really going on inside my head

someday we'll be real again..

as the day is dimming
forget i ever..
as the month is dimming
were you ever with..
and the year is dimming
Track Name: never leave me alone
the chinese girl and you
at some cobble street cafe
kissing swapping spit and stories
sitting in my dream again

you and the giant man
my eyes stitched open wide
i got VD on my pupils
and it's spreading through my head

how come you're gone
and never leave me alone
leave me alone..

the chinese girl and you
at some cobble street cafe
telling me i'm such a teased out chicken
plucked and frozen in the rain

you and the relentless man
my eyes stitched open wide
the image printed on my pupils

never leaves me alone

how come you're gone
and never leave me alone
never leave me alone
you never leave me alone
how come you're gone
and never leave me alone
just leave me alone
you never leave me alone
leave me alone
you never leave me alone
now
leave me alone
never leave me alone

never leave me alone
Track Name: beside her gate
come say hello to me
in my neverworld
'UNFOLDED BITS'
smoke signals, empty wind
come say hello
not misty eyed just cold
poor little alice, lost little girl

'FOLDED…


3/8/8 3/8/8/3/8/8..8
BESIDE THE GATE’

my teammates on the wing
sure remember how we felt
i crack a window open
at 10000 feet and say hello

not misty eyed just cold
poor little alice, lost little girl
up she went, now down she goes.

‘SEE SAW SEE SAW..
WON’T BUDGE
IF 2 RIDE THE SEE SAW
WITH 3 ON THE SEE SAW,
THE SEE SAW MAY BREAK
THE SEE SAW MAY BREAK…
SEE SAW..
BESIDE THE GATE
SEE SAW
AFTER THE 8…’

a whole life ahead..

'UNFOLDED…
UNFOLDED..
UNFOLDED..

BOO-HOO-HOO
PROBABLY LATE
LEFT ALL ALONE
MY SEE SAW AND ME
ME
I
ME?
I?...’
Track Name: thick blue sky
push the thick blue sky up a little higher
airplanes, stars, the birds, the satellites
the clouds disguised as polar bears
every wayward sour drop up a little higher

some deep fried twisted tinker bell
up a little higher
superman and sally field, the bees the flies
some coins disguised as horoscopes
and every wayward waft of smoke up a little higher..

let's drop a tab let's fix a margin
and let's binge on a little requiem booze
and everything that's 100 proof
i push it all up 100 proof

limp over by my side i'll shoot your other leg
it's never too late
just always too soon
Track Name: moby dick
when i feel like ahab
growing an enormous dick
and raping moby dick,
that's when life is sweet

the rest of it feels like dragging
through a sea of holy shit

but i'm sure you and tom will survive this
me and betty will survive this.
for the love of god
and.. holy shit.

check it out
out in the field a sacred cow and holy shit

over there on the bed
a sacred cow crapping all that holy shit..

all that holy shit..
Track Name: here comes the rain
well, bye bye summer
from shoe box to gas box, bye bye
here's come the rain..
supreme silence in the thunderhead
sweet thunderhead evening
like the world is about to change

bye bye sorrow
and for the bones left behind
here comes the rain
to finally sweep them away

bye bye summer i never had my say
but it's a sweet thunderhead evening
and all that is about to change

bye bye summer, from august back to may
you had your way
but now here comes the rain to sweep
your fucking corpse away.

bye bye summer, summer bye bye....
Track Name: rusting
i'm awake in my hour of need
sun goes up and sun goes down
the earth spins round and round
and i can't sleep, it's in my dreams

i'm awake in my hour of need
i see golden angels, rusting
trying to reach for me
and i can't sleep, it's in my dreams

there's a place that we buried our kisses
and the rain will wash us back again..
there's a place that we buried our knives
the rain will wash us back again
