No! I froze I can’t be so Far away from my wasteland I never know when I might Ambulance Hoist the horns with my own hands Almost Almost I heard a faint olé True love but I had other ways to hurt myself Like calling I could open up my heart And fall in and I could blame it all on dust The Art of Almost Almost Almost Almost I’ll hold it up I’ll shake the grail Disobey across the waves Tomorrow I’ll have all the love I could ever ache And I’ll leave almost with you All of almost Almost

Was I wrong Off all night long So high As the stinking sun I came alive Then I felt Oh Uh Oh Some guys Have everything I know It’s alright I’ve done a lot of Crawling around outside (and I heard) It’s alright Your sno-cone And it’s piss and blood It’s in the cards (oh, oh) Get Well Soon EVERYBODY!! Do all lies Have a taste? Let it go I don’t know oh... A cow’s neck Bad shave In the low blow slo-mo It’s alright You won’t set the kids on fire Oh but I might HO You come on Sentimental If the Solar car’s coming I’m home The Magna Carta’s On a Slim Jim blood Brutha! The sunk soul With the coal clean toe Is the mutha! Yea. That’s right When you gonna find out I’m all inside You still might It’s all right It’s all right It’s alright You won’t set the kids on fire Oh but I might HO It’s all right It’s all right

I loath The sun Sometimes I don’t Know how to love Anything Myself It’s hard To recall Hold on To it all I kill my memories With a cheap Disease To the sails That fail To the bird and the whale Move my misery It’s all or nothing I see I don’t want to lose this fight I don’t want to end this fight Goodbye I loath The sun Someday I know I’ll learn how to love Anyone Is enough I don’t want to lose this fight I don’t want to end this fight Goodbye

I’ve been young I’ve been old I’ve been hurt And consoled Heart of coal Heart of gold So I’m told I’ve been lost I’ve been found I’ve been taken By the sound Of my own voice The voices in my head I can’t help it if I fall in Love with you again I’m calling Just to let you know It dawned on me Every night is a test To the east from the west The sun rises and sets That’s the sun at it’s best I forget, then I know I’d regret letting you go Sometimes I can’t believe how dark it can be I can’t help it if I fall in Love with you again I’m calling Just to let you know It dawned on me It dawned on me So on And so forth And again I will stop to begin At the end I can’t help it if I fall in Love with you again I’m calling Just to let you know It dawned on me Oh I can’t help it if I fall in Love with you again I’m calling Just to let you know It dawned on me

I was always right About the morning Ok, I’m an old shoe Danced above the blades Never stopped crawling Over the black dunes And I’m waiting For you Waiting forever Are you awake now too? I am always one Without a warning Whole days Reappear Lift away Past the gate Desert keeps forming Underneath the black moon And I’m waiting For you Waiting forever Are you awake now too?

I have heard the war and worry of the gospel Ferried fast across the void I have married broken spoke charging smoke wheels Spit and swallowed opioid I am the driver at the wheel of the horror Marching circles at the gate Mine eyes have seen The fury so flattered by fate Tonight I’d rather count the warm fuse internally Subtract the silence of myself I would rather choose the middle mind of mystery Reverse a riddle for my health I’ll unwind strange rinds overpowering Toss the chimneys in the sea I believe I’ve seen The finger divine extremity Please come closer to the feather smooth lens fly Sadness is my luxury Will you weather, join the cold, come before I die More aware of it than me The valves are blowing stone The kids are unabashed Loneliness postponed Mine eyes deceiving glory I was born to die alone Alone

I would throw myself underneath The wheels of any train of thought Running off the rails or sail you through The rogue waves of your brain If I could bring a light to shine Upon the dark and disobey The night so young But I still say we’re too old For clichés Oh I can only dream of the dreams we’d share If you were so inclined I would love to be the one to open up your mind I could base my whole existence Upon the cherry strands of your gold hair I would ask almost insist upon Treating you kind and fair Oh I can only dream of the dreams we’d have How our hearts would be entwined If you would let me be the one to open up your mind I’ll still be myself beneath The banks unbroken beside the stream Ready to return your thoughts unlearned So it goes So it seems Oh I can only dream of the dreams we’d share If you weren’t so defined I would love to be the one to open up your mind If you would let me be the one to open up your mind

Capitol city skyline photo Skyscraper shines the sun so Low in the sky Secretaries at the hotdog vendors Cabs honk at bicycle messengers Rolling by I can’t call with a subway token Anyway the phones are all broken I wish you were here Better yet I wish I was there with you You wouldn’t like it here You should stay right there Breathe in that country air You wouldn’t like it here Capital towers radiator steam vents Scream along with the clarinets and arguments Echo down the hall I can’t sleep, I can’t wake up I’m shaken up maybe we should break up I wish you were here Better yet I wish I was there with you You wouldn’t like it here You should stay right there Breathe in that country air You wouldn’t like it here Capitol city skyline photo Picture postcard signed the moon so Low in the sky I can’t smile when my hearts still broken Faraway, in love and unspoken I wish you were here Or I was there with you

How can you tell You’re under a spell You’re compromised You’re miles away Slow How can you know When you’re aiming low There’s nothing in your heart Don’t feel it in your soul No standing O O O Maybe you’ve noticed I’m ashamed Of anything that I’ve done Maybe you’ve noticed I’m not the same As almost anyone Why can’t you see You look funny to me You trip and fall I catch it all O How can you know When you’re aiming low You’re curling up You’re crawling now No Standing O O O Maybe you’re saying no this time Dance right around my bones It’s o.k. I’ll be fine I won’t follow you home Instead I turn my mood on a dime I’m finally off of my back I come from a long, long line I mope and I cry and attack OW OW How can you tell You’re under a spell Compromised Miles away No standing O O O Maybe you’ve noticed I’m not afraid Of everything that I’ve done Maybe you’ve noticed I’m not the same As almost anyone Instead turn my mood on a dime I’m finally off of my back I come from a long, long line I mope and I cry and attack How can you tell How can you tell

I saw a rising red lung Glisten under the sun I wonder when it will pop In the snow If the melody’s a mistake An embrace at the wake How long does it take For us to know I want a wig that’s been blown By something unknown Buried under a mile Of snow I found a fix for the fits Come listen to this As intimate as a kiss Over a phone And it goes… I found a fix for the fits Come listen to this It’s buried under the hiss It glows Like a powerful smile A car radio dial As intimate as a kiss Over a phone And it goes…

My gold marigolds attack My black bed of roses I’m going to bring ‘em all back With hypnosis Ho And I know that I won’t be The easiest to set free And I know that I won’t be the last Cold captain tied to the mast I recall you on the telephone I recall when you get mad I will still love you to death And I won’t ever forget how And I know that it won’t be The easiest to set free And I know that I won’t be the last Cold captain tied to the mast I’m on the other side I’m satisfied I’m a spirit dove I’m looking for your love I’m simple as a matter of fact A punch in the nose don’t overreact I will still love you to death And I won’t ever forget how And I know that I won’t be The easiest to set free And I know that I won’t be the last Cold captain tied to the mast And I know that I won’t be the one To securely know when it’s wrong But I hope I know when it’s past And I hope I know when to show you my Whole love Whole love Whole love Whole love Whole love Whole love Whole love I won’t ever forget how

This is how I tell it O’ but it’s long One Sunday morning O’ One son is gone Against the weather dawning Over the sea My father said what I had become No one should be Outside I look lived in Like the bones in a shrine How am I forgiven O’ I’ll give it time This I learned without warning Holding my brow In time we thought I would kill him O’ but I didn’t know how I said it’s your God I don’t believe in No your bible can’t be true Knocked down by the long lie He cried I fear what waits for you I can hear those bells Spoken and gone I feel relief I feel well Now he knows he was wrong Ring ‘em cold for my father Frozen underground Jesus I wouldn’t bother He belongs to me now Something sad keeps moving So I wandered around I fell in love with the burden Holding me down Bless my mind I miss Being told how to live What I learned without knowing How much more I owe than I can give This is how I tell it O’ but it’s long One Sunday morning One son is gone
