Track Name: I Don't Know Why, But She Knows
I told her once before when all the world was wrapped in gold
She was gonna get some
When I was done

I dug out holes for days picked away at younger days
I was a worker
Sort of a slave

But now shes in the sky
Got no name, I don't know why
I wonder if she's alright
If she is alright
She's all alone

I went to kill I went to war they called me and I was on my feet so quick
I don't know why
But she knows

My face was pushed against a tree they took my heart and sang out
"Free this world
From this cruelty"

I nodded in agreement since I was just an honest miner
I don't know why I don't know why
I don't know why

And now she's in the sky
Got no name, I don't know why
Wonder if she's doing alright
If she is doing alright
It was my heart that they fried but it was her soul when she lied
They got her bad, they got her bad, they got her bad
But she's alright
Track Name: Little Claws Struggle to Show
I tap my legs for some peace
Her finger makes a line in the grease
Another in this place has gone mad
Diggin his way through the band

In the room the women go
They stink of plastic Monroe

Jimmy and Lady and Muts
They call out for me in a fuss
"Tear all these Christmas lights down!"
They tell me as I spit on the crown

In the room the women go
They'll cry if they miss the show

Someone's gone blowing up toys
Fucking boys, what is that noise
There's a crowd of old Frenchmen outside
Let em eat their hats and their pride

In the room the women go
They punish their boys with their toys

How do I open this song
Everything I know has just been proved wrong, ha
How do I open the verse
I'll write it in short quiet bursts

In the room the women go go go go go

And now I introduce the one and only...
Track Name: Be Where She Is
I go from place to place as a pale sun feeds me hues and breaks my legs. These places all distant, so far that I have almost to pass universes, each different from the last. I learned how to breathe on these long, wide roads, going places with people who didn't know any better. Back then I only passed grass huts, no universes. Things were different. Where once I breathed and talked with the wild expanse on either side of me, which created beautiful canopies and robust waterfalls of green emerald light, I now tread beside faces of dust that speak to me only in iron tools.

I wanna be where she is.

I pass or hike away from my path. Dark metallic shapes catch my eye and I shudder. The pale sun wakes them all for only a second as I pass, wakes the entire wasteland of dusty faces and keeps them all awake until I turn my gaze to the moon.

I wanna be where she is.

I cannot replenish myself out here, as much as I scrounge. Before, I came to a place that served us books. A whole platoon of hungry bastards and cripples eating the words of humanity. I quite enjoyed the sweetness of a certain book with a red binding. I do not remember what the word was on the front, but it resembled the curves of a woman's side.

I wanna be
I wanna be where she is
I wanna be
I wanna be where she is
Track Name: Scene With the Girlfriend's Boy
Girlfriend's boy is in the corner
Eating with the former

All my friends are wrapped in plastic
Offering me matchsticks

They taught me how to catch a pigeon
With speed and precision

God is ripe for an announcement
Teacher please announce it

Girlfriend's boy is in the corner
Eating with the former
Girlfriend's boy is in the corner
Eating with the former

Boys haven't caught on to me yet
But the girl that I long for is upset
Come join us in the sacrament
Feel the sand in your hair, this is what I meant.
Track Name: Come In
The breath of everything, come in
In spite of everything, come in
You should be struggling, a little bit (just a little bit)
With every breath you give, for Her

My love has sold her soul
For the eternal gold
My love has sold her soul, for me
(and you know she did that 'cause she's fucking crazy)
Track Name: No Shirt
I shit on the sand
While I carry the sea in the palm of my hand

I piss in the sky
While I spin webs on these fingers of mine

I punch the stone
Would you give me your knuckles, I can't do this alone.

I want to give you my spine!
But I can't be walking around with no shirt on my hind!
Track Name: Caught Me
Don't catch me when I'm writing
Writing the whole world through
Don't catch me in my sleep
I don't know if I'm here or there
Don't catch me when I'm on it
Shock the sideways wall of friends
Don't catch me when I'm drinking
Kick em all in the back of the head
Don't hate me now for laughing
Laugh till the whole world is through
Don't hate me now for laughing
Laugh till I am dead too
Don't hate me now for laughing
Laugh till I am dead too
Don't hate me now for laughing
Laugh till I am dead too
Don't catch me when I'm writing
Writing the whole world through
Don't catch me when I'm sleeping
I don't know if I'm here or there
Don't catch me when I'm writing
Writing the whole world through
Don't catch me when I'm dreaming
Dreaming of a world without you
Track Name: A Prompt in Guelph
???
Track Name: Cosmo-Audio Love Song
You are alive and I am beside you
We're gonna be okay
You draw the plan and I draw the fire
We're gonna be okay
You pilot out the last known survivors
I'm gonna be okay
I'm in the leather under your fingertips
We're gonna see L.A.

We are alive, the Space Monkey Union
We're gonna be okay
Our oxygen is slowly escaping us
We're gonna find a way
Maybe we should draw the edges of the universe
So we know our way
And there She is coming right for us
And we fight away
We'll find a way
Track Name: Tiny Pins Mark the Wall
Rest of the world
Lovely I know
Stole my crown
Stole my crown
Thorns in the ground

I'll pay a cent
Where seating is meant
For all we are
All we are
Limbs in a bag

Seeing us here
The one whom we fear
Collecting us
Examining us
Pinned on a wall

Behind the veneer
Matriarch's ear
Solid light
Wings are tight
Pinned to the wall

West in the world
Forever unfurl
Every night
Every night
Pinned together
Track Name: The Only Words, Salted
I cannot
I cannot explain
Myself

With the tongue
With the tongue I've employed
Myself

With the mind
With the mind I've built
Myself

I cannot
I cannot explain
Myself

The temperature
The temperature that I measured
Myself

Is incomplete
Is incomplete but I guess
That's okay

And after
After all that is left to say
Echoes
Echoes all that is left to say
Mother
And Father, don't let it go to waste
Mother
And father, don't let it go to waste
Don't let it go to waste
Don't let it go to waste
Track Name: For the Very First Roborrt
Been born
Like a minotaur
You have a heart of gold
And I couldn't tell you anymore

I've no grasp on my voice
When I speak up
And he agrees with me
So we sing into paper cups

We follow wires
till we forget where they start
How can we call this art
You always answer with your golden heart.

Been born
Like a minotaur
It's always forward for you
Fuck, you like the same bands I do
