Track Name: Every Form
You send a sound, heavenly from above
And I will cut a picture of it up
You plow the ground, carefully with a glove
And I will stomp each mountain to the dirt
Every form
You feel nothing
Every form
You feel the same
Track Name: Pastures Picturesque
Flowing curtails of your slumber
Shined rays of golden on the younger
Days that came and quickly left
Of open pastures so picturesque

Bluest skies and storied tree
Brought forth this joy so easily

Mr. chore & Mrs. chit
Would have to wait and sit
For summer's come so gracefully
& woke the land once sound asleep

What is it that they want from you?
To take your life & split in two
I don't really want to do it
Don't really want to have to come through, only for you

I see you there
Track Name: It's The Same
Sometimes I get on/off
For a minute, for a lifetime
I know it's the only one I hold
Hope for this and I will see
It's what's missing on my wall
Falling back and falling forward
Looking at the storyboard and
Cut the paper, slash the corner
It's the same, it's all different
It's the same I swear to you
It's the only thing that you can do
Track Name: Pass The Fault
I see you've turned your field
You've earned a copper pipe and steel
Everybody's real deal is a dupe
And what have I learned?
And what have I gained from it all?
You pass the fault, you pass the jolt
The unhinged bolt, what can I say?
You pass the fault on to me
You passed it all
Track Name: Pick Up
Pick up on your soul
Lick up all the drool that's on your face
Pick up off your stool
Cause you know you've seen the caravan
That's waiting at your school
Pick up on your soul
Fix up all the tools that took your place
Pick up off your stool
Cause you know there's been a scare around
What's waiting behind the door
Track Name: Dine On Thoughts
Thinking in the park
I don't even know
How my thoughts always try to
Dine on themselves
Memorize this detail
Always with the refills
I just thought
It would be easier that way
A dream is a sandwich
It gobbles up the day
And fears that I face
And fears I misplaced
I wanted a falafel
Not a soda bottle
The sky is as gray
As a newspaper page
Wait for you to tie your lace
Ready to get out of this place
Track Name: Half As Good
No, that's not right
You find yourself in corrugated iron house
You find yourself feeling half as good
You look for you phone in the automated message world
You look for you phone feeling half as good
No, that's not right
Track Name: Alice B Toklas Ln
Pass it, pastoral city-scape
I can see the top of your head
Get off, get off, get off
Always on the sidewalk
"Faster/alternative/ulterior automotive"
- You think you understand
Turn your flashers on
Wait as you double park
The tourist bus hop on hop off
A trickle of some sort
Jumping jack smashed trash heap
The teapot on the little river that runs the alley
Track Name: The Sheets
The sheets in the hotel
Feel how I've felt for a long time
That itching on my back
Races down the track of my piece of mind
Oh my darling, I know it's my suspicion
Oh my darling, I know it's my condition
I'll wait for a call or anything at all
Because I know I would never do it
Oh my darling, I know it's my suspicion
Oh my darling, I know it's my condition
The sheets in the hotel
Feel how I've felt for a long time
