Track Name: 1st Wave
the first wave
I anticipated
was nothing like the one
you brought on
and I scraped my knees
on the burning concrete
and I watched as my knees
bled down

the first thing
I had thought you had said
wasn’t what you had said
at all
and I make believe
and I pull up my sheets
and I go back to sleep
alone
Track Name: Thought Thief
you know me
I’m a regular thief
make off with your thoughts
while you’re asleep
pour my loot in a leaky cave
use your dreams while I sleep all day

I’m growing moss like a three toed sloth
can’t get up
can’t get off
or outside where the sun will shine
and burn me
itching out of my dry skin
burning out my eyes
making them squint

my advice to those who take
be weary of the ones
who are awake
some daydreams come
and their thoughts get dull
a fuzzy mind in a chalky skull
of nothing
itching to be out of their skin
to be somewhere
anywhere
Track Name: Yikes
I smell a witch-
I smell sand and seagrass here
my pretty lizard let your velvet fingers draw me near
the green ferns from the black holes in your eyes
I looked inside and licked my teeth before I died

hold my hand
you know I’m lost on everything
so far out
and without doubt
I’m here still waiting
for you
I learned to bleed
and to turn into something
but when nothing comes to mind
I appear the same

so put a thumb to your nose and wiggle fingers ‘round
or blow your sticky tongue and pull an eyelid down
the face you make
it doesn’t make a difference at all
pull me out of space
together we could fall

hold my hand
you know I’m lost on everything
so far out
and without doubt
I’m here still waiting
for you
I learned to bleed
and to turn into something
but it never does the trick
when you’re around
Track Name: Naps
I had this dream last night
maybe you were in it
then maybe not
probably not

still, I told you that you were
even though I wasn’t all too sure
a fruitless fib
to shoot the shit

sleeping away
sleeping-- a way

Oh, I like a nap
(tried to get myself out of the bed)
Track Name: Cool Pool
girls in the sun
at the pool, hey don’t run
death to the young
and their drooling acid tongues
for you

you’re so cool
you’re so cool

swirling visions from
tripping down you come
death when I was young
my ego did succumb
to you

cause you’re so cool
you’re so cool
Track Name: Carrot
sometimes I’m thirsty
and I need a drink
it seems to happen all the time
the water feels very different in my mouth
and makes a sound swallowing down

life flies when you’re having none
life is second to one
and the one is, and the one is, and the ones is
death

and then I’m hungry and I need a snack
you’ll catch me reaching for a carrot
I like to eat them while I’m on my way
to your place
I walked for miles and fell flat on my face
when you said:

I’m alive and I’m having fun
laughing second to one
and the one is, and the one is, and the one is
death
Track Name: King Jeans
shoot me over the
fence cause I
could not stop fawning
for all your yawning
was curled in and washed out
yearning for florid
for florid cheeks and
a pet to peak with

go to place a hand in hand
and weave four fingers in between
back and forth
on your birthmark
or your bruise
they are too easily confused

I’m in it for the trip
the back and forth
until we’re dead from
out feet to our heads come
out onto damp lawns
to light a candle
to candle light we
may not or might be

go to place a hand in hand
and weave four fingers in between
back and forth
on your birthmark
or your bruise
they are too easily confused

I do believe that when our lives go by
we forget we already died
all of this playing out before our eyes
we must have seen a million times
still there's no reason you should ever cry
it's just a game inside your mind

on his throne
he sits alone
King Jeans we know
Track Name: Harakiri Krishnas
the void is the unknowing
I enjoy it as the place I’m going
we are the members of the Harakiri Krishnas
there are swords in our abdomens

the void is the unknowing
I enjoy it as the place I’m going
when we’re going they’ll be no reason for to seek us
enlightenment never goes as planned
Track Name: Dig (My Towel)
in the back yard where you’re standing
eyes can only see the hand in front
you’re never really gone

and when reality starts peeking
into you it feels like weeks then
we’ll forget our goings on

I’m looking at you, I’m looking at you
you can’t see me can you? you can’t see me can you?
I’m looking at you, I’m looking at you
well I don’t know what to do when I’m looking at you
Track Name: 1000 Ways To Wear Your Towel (Pavel's Song)
I keep it on my head till the wet thoughts get dry
I wear it as a cape let the wet thoughts drip dry

a bleach-blonde bowl turned green in the swimming pool
she’s all silly kisses but her lips would be gone for a while
1000 ways
to wear your towel

a bleach-blonde bowl turned green in the swimming pool
I wish I were a lizard so I could change colors too
cause I don’t know what to do
when I’m looking at you

I keep it on my head till the wet thoughts get dry
I wear it as a cape let the wet thoughts drip dry

but I don’t know what to do
when I’m looking at you
