Outbound
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

I am, I am, I am, I am
I am, I am, I am, I am

White hippy moses like an aphid in the roses
Universal inverse in inverted poses
Like a snort of amnesia up all of your noses
Not what the man in the street supposes

Like a real-time being it's the shadow you're seeing
It's the aureole flying and fleeing
The central potential of color keying
Why can't you forget all this you and meing

(I am, I am, I am, I am)

Sonic anathema, wake up you dreamer
I've fallen out of heaven, gonna crash on your Beamer
Big man fly, pull down a screamer
Break a femur, I'm going to Lima

Outbound
Outbound

Old Nevets Yeblik imploded in public
His nose was Roman but his taste was Catholic
He put out some magic on a piece of plastic
It's really tragic how they needed the music

Outbound (I am, I am, I am, I am)
Outbound (I am, I am, I am, I am)

Poor mangy panther, best days behind ya
Hissing at the hunters who are trying to bind ya
Hidden in the spotlight you know they can't find ya
Feline took the wheel as they feel and blind ya

Outbound (I am, I am, I am, I am)
Outbound (I am, I am, I am, I am)

They say who is no saint, that's a one thing he ain't
Get your own song if ya got a complaint
Turn me up louder 'cause you're coming in faint
Buckle on my Fender and listen to the pain

Outbound (I am, I am, I am, I am)
Outbound (I am, I am, I am, I am)

 

Wolfe
Wolfe is mad
He can't run with the pack
Ah things went bad
Out the back

Ah Wolfe is sad
Ah I don't know
Crash his pad
Out in the snow

It's like a thousand little angels on the point of a pin
There's no sense in describing the place that he's in
It's like a filigree diamond filched from a ring
Just keep still and stop
Howling

Wolfe feels good
Ah I'm not sure
If he could
Anymore

Ah Wolfe can't see
Ah that's no good
He can't see the tree
For the wood

It's like a thousand little angels on the point of a pin
There's no sense in describing the place that he's in
It's like a filigree diamond filched from a ring
Just keep still and stop
Howling

 

Celestial
[rev. Dec. 4, 2008]

Celestial being
Seeing how my reasons fling
To popular jiffy [1:00]
If you will kill my headache

If you don't fight
Then you don't win
If you don't win
It's a sin

Ice man has melted
Dice man felt it as a six
Six of the best sir
Yes sir we'll mix it in the fix

If you don't fight
Then you don't win
If you don't win
It's a sin

And if you don't try
You can never get in
And it's a sin
If you can't come in

A fabulous monster
Gone so deep behind your bars
Put down in the ground now
Found out and sounds it down the past [2:53]

If you don't fight
Then you don't win
If you don't win
It's a sin

If you don't try
You can never get in
And it's a sin
If you don't come in

 

Crystalline Rush
(Crystalline rush)

I thought it'd be so easy when I was falling
I thought it'd just be a matter of letting it go
I thought it'd be so much better when I reached the horizon
The crystalline rush of my love starts to flow

And I can not find a sign of life
But I can find my way

I thought it'd be so much warmer when I lay down with you
The crystalline rush of my love starts to flow

I thought it'd be more often when I was dreaming
I thought it'd just be like high follows low
I thought it'd all be much cooler when I was just holding on now
Crystalline rush of my love starts to flow

And I can not find a sign of life
But I can find my way

I thought it'd be so easy when I was falling
Crystalline rush of my love starts to flow

(Crystalline rush)

 

Song For The Masking
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

Got a fair degree of impatience
Got a heart like mercury
Got some weird relations
Got a silver lining hanging over me
Just like the woman you never see
So unbelievably

Masking the rusty surface
Facing a sea
Asking me for a purpose
So patiently

I got a sense of justice
Just keep the wolves from knocking at my door
I know you shouldn't trust us
But I know you'll be back for more

Masking the rusty surface
Facing the sea
Asking me for a purpose
So patiently

Nobody ever
Not that you want me to
No one ever
Ah, but you want me to

Masking the rusty surface
Facing the sea
Asking me for a purpose
So patiently

Nobody ever
Not that you want me to
No one ever
Ah, but you want me to

Masking the rusty surface
Facing the sea
Asking me for a purpose
So patiently

And nobody ever
Ah, but you want me to
Nobody ever
But you want me to

(Masking, masking, masking, masking...)

Look Homeward Angel
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

Come on

You asked me 'how do you sleep at night?'
Well I tell you I reign my dreams in so tight
Why peer blindly (aww) into crimson lake
When the night fails stars break up like flake

And the windows
Angel of the west
Looking homewards
Looking how I like you best

Like a persistent ache
Like a birthday cake
Like the kind of thirst you feel so cursed
You never never gonna stay

Now wake up
Now get up
Now heat up
Now rise up
Rise up like a bird

 

Oenone
[rev. Dec. 4, 2008]

Wait
How do I compete
Celebrate a major win now itches heat [1:23]
All the tiny symbols vibrate to the beat
Pick up your arrows, makes you want to compete
Have another shot and you feel complete
Look at all the stuff that I need to delete
And to clean

Oenone, don't you cry for me
I come from Lemuria with this banged up harm on knee/harmony

Wait
How do I compete
Attracted more people who laid down in the sun
All the fishes come and take a bite of each one
Thinking to myself that the end has begun
Crashing like a plane at the end of its run
Asking for my money, they say do it for fun
Now I don't care

Oenone, don't you cry for me
I come from Lemuria with this banged up harm on knee/harmony

Now listen
[R] I was walking down your street on a Saturday night
Feeling like a fool, feeling like a fight
[L] All of a sudden this hideous sight
Couldn't understand it so I took to the light
And I feel alright
[C] Yeah, it feels alright

Oenone, don't you cry for me
I come from Lemuria with this banged up harm on knee/harmony

Heart
It's not real
Concentrate
It's not too late
That's right
Alter me
That's right
That's right

 

Spirit In Flame
[rev. Oct. 28, 2008]

(Does it work?)

All this
All this is the same
And all that
That you call a game
The game doesn't care if you win or lose
The game doesn't care if you're bleeding or bruised

(I know)

Burn thru the (w)hole like a spirit in flame
Returned slowly can't remember your name
Lot of little gremlins are drawn to your fame
You've got to fade out

(Does it work?)

All time
All time flows away
All space
That you got to take
Space doesn't care if you sink or you rise
Space doesn't care if you're fire or ice
And that's nice

Burn thru the (w)hole like a spirit in flame
Returned slowly can't remember your name
Lot of little gremlins are drawn to your fame
You've got to fade out

 

Forever Lasts For Nothing
Standing at the junction of two great highways
The post-industrial breeze
I must admit that things have gone a little awry
Aw, you can do what you please

You can please try, trying or start it into start [0:29]
Or get up off your knees
No one fucking cares about your broken heart
Or your slow release

Just like the honeymoon, they wait for you to score
Just like the animals they keep outside the door
Just like a welcome mat you lay down on the floor
Just like a law for the rich and a prison for the poor

I got a premonition, gonna need some ammunition
I'm gonna need to see
I got a little plan that I start acting like a man
And you can act like me

I got an igloo in the desert and a camel in the arctic
And the tripletts make three
Forever lasts for nothing, man you better get something
Nothing gonna be free

Just like the honeymoon, they wait for you to score
Just like the animals they keep outside the door
Just like a welcome mat you lay down on the floor
Just like a law for the rich and prison for the poor

 

Not What You Say
[rev. Dec. 4, 2008]

Without love
There you go
High up and down, well you cannot be seen again
Ain't it so

Ooh, ohh, love
Ooh, ohh, love
Ain't it so
Time goes slow
Forwards and backwards and over your soul again
Don't it show

I had potential baby
What do you want me to be?
You, you're a danger substance
Insubstantially
It's not what you say
If that's what you say

I walk on splintered surface
When you want me to come
I twist your bended purpose
When I'm strung out and done
It's not what you say
If that's what you say

I live in summer winter
Why'd you want me to drown
I shared your love remember
Couldn't put it down
If that's what you say
It's not what you say
If that's what you say
It's not what you say
If that's what you say
It's not what you say

It's not what you say
It's not, It's not what you say
Not what you say
It's not what you say
