Zoo 42
[added Aug. 20, 2008]

You're like my little crocodile
You nearly took me under
I wonder at your style
You're like my little lioness
But you should forget your pride
And hide in your nakedness

Echo magnet
Shadow monger
You had to leave unexpectedly
Mirror finger
Vacuum dreamer
Had to leave unexpectedly

You're like my little lazy sloth
Hanging in a tree now
See now how you catch your cloth
You're like my hungry little fish
Jump out of your pond
And you won't grants me a wish

(Oh, how I try)
At the end of the road

Zoo for 2
What to do
(I try to get over you)

Zoo for 3
You and me
(I try to get over you)

Zoo for 4
Close that door
(I try to get over you)

Zoo for fun
It's for one
(I try to get over you)

Zoo, zoo zoo zoo...
(I try to get over you)

 

Nobody But You
[added Aug. 20, 2008]

I'm gonna go down swinging
But everybody keeps singing
And everybody keep clinging
Just like I want them to do

Well she's my real scene maker
She's a real shake shaker
And I'm a real ball acher
Just like I wanted to do

I don't want no money
Feels good, feels funny
I don't want nobody
Nobody but you

I'm gonna go down fighting
I've got these firecrackers lighting
I've got the UFO sighting
Just like I wanted to do

I'm gonna lie awake thinking
I'm gonna stop my drinking
And then I'm gonna start sinking
Just like I wanted to do

I don't want no money
Feels good, feels funny
I don't want nobody but you
No one but you

I'm gonna lie here dreaming
I'm gonna die here scheming
I'm gonna lie here dreaming
A-just a-dreamin' of you

That's all

 

Diviner's Sage
[rev. Aug. 25, 2008]

You're just a cloud in the sky nowadays
inside a second skin
You're like a warp in the high-wire days
Everything just balances
You're just a leaf in the wind these days
You're just a whispering
You're just a blur on the old freeway
Empty picture frame

Oh, I want you so
And you don't even have a name
Looking high and low
And it hurts me so
I don't mind taking the blame

You're just a drop in the sea these days
Shining silver song
You're just a wave in a white heat haze
Rippling right along

Oh, I want you so
And you don't even have a name
Looking high and low
And it hurts me so
I don't mind taking the blame

(La la la la...)
(Diviner's sage)

My world is so wonderful
No one can say anything bad
I just want to touch everything
(Diviner's sage)

 

Every Cloud
[added Aug. 20, 2008]

I saw you coming
Sitting down along my windowsill
We didn't speak
Just listened to the rain

Every drop told us the story
Every cloud sang our sad song

I saw you dreaming
Frames of the future flicking by
We didn't speak
Just listened to the rain

Every drop told us the story
Every cloud sang our sad song
Every drop told us the story
Every cloud knew what went wrong

I saw you leaving
Escaping my memory
I didn't speak
Just listened to the rain

Every drop told us the story
Every cloud knew what went wrong

 

Surface Tension
[rev. Aug. 25, 2008]

Idle earth hangs in the sky
Empty days and I thought I'd fly
Thought that I would die again
Blue morning

The desperate night sleeps in the sun
He dreams of life and he dreams of all it's worth
And now it's all undone again
Blue morning

Just a moment
In a sweet forgotten sanctuary
Just a moment with you

Lonely sea, burning sand
Empty days and its all secondhand
And I demand to understand again
Blue morning

Just a moment
In a sweet forgotten sanctuary
Just a moment with you

The man and the moon and the rune
The sea and the gnat and the girl
The light and the hair and the voice
And the time and the day and the birds

And the clock and the face and the wall
The way and the sign and the west
The love and the kiss and the tears
The start and the path and the end

 

The Wrong Road
[added Aug. 20, 2008]

A trader in furs living in exile
Boy what a kook
Look at that passport
Stale bread and paper without privilege
If you live here learn the language

When the rain hit the roof
With the sound of a finished kiss
Like a lip lifted from a lip
And I took the wrong road round

A room in the lighthouse near the park
The ghosts in the next room hear you cough
Time drags on Sunday spent in Mayfair
With all your riches, why aren't you there?

And the wind acts like a magnet
And pulls the leaves from the tree
And the town's lost its breath
I took the wrong road round

And handsome is good, pretty is better
What was that phrase, Grant, 'grace under pressure?'
Blind by the light bulb, blood to the bank
I lost all yours letters when my ship sank

In the disjointed breaking light
The soft blue approach of the water
Makes a sound you'll never forget
And I took the wrong road round

Stranded at low-tide where the river bends
Wouldn't you know it, that's how life ends
Lucky at cards, aw, that's an old lie
Lucky in love, that's how life ends

Well the turncoats turned around
When they heard the sound of the bell
Dropped their coins into the well
I took the wrong road round

Started out Oliver, ended up Fagin
Now don't you worry, it's my problem
What's my name, what's my number?
I'm the lonely one

And it's just at the end of the day
When the light makes its slow move away
That I know all I can say is
I took the wrong road round

Gambled with risk, paid you back with risk
So now you know who your friends are
They'll steel your shadow when your back's turned
Bouquets of flowers, lesson's over

When the rain hit the roof
With the sound of a finished kiss
Like a lip lifted from a lip
And I took the wrong road round

 

Dumb Waiter
[rev. Aug. 25, 2008]

On the way down to the plateau
I had a little accident and crushed my gatto
I took out a billboard on Sunset Strip
I flipped on my hip and swallowed the trip

Back at the eastern equator
I got in a fight with some dumb waiter
I issued a challenge to all life in space
I made up my name and I made up my face

(boom, huh, yeah)

Inside the quickly sinking plaza
I saw I was blind, eyeless in Gaza
I blew up a balloon and I blew up a bank
I flew up to the moon too soon to see Frank

(ooh, ahh, ohh, ahh, ooh ooh ahh)

I never should tried it
The lying to hide it, right away
I never have needed
But some said it bleeded away

I shouldn't have rushed it
I shouldn't have touched it with my tongue
I shouldn't have dipped it
I should have just slipped it down a rung

I couldn't adore it
I couldn't ignore it in my ignorance
I couldn't improve it
I couldnt' remove it with tolerance

I hoped it was better
I hoped it would let her get away
I saw it was over
I saw not to bother anyway

I never should tried it
The lying to hide it, right away
I never have needed
But some said it bleeded away

I shouldn't have rushed it
I shouldn't have touched it with my tongue
I shouldn't have dipped it
I should have just slipped it down a rung

 

Tara
[added. Aug. 31, 2008]

She's got the darkest eyes and the greenest skin
She's waiting around for the world to begin
Painting her face up the size of the moon
Plucking a lyre and we are the tune

(Tara, Tara)

She's got the mouth of a river that runs to the sea
Puts the single malt whiskey in your Chamomile tea
Reaches out on a Eucalyp branch
Would like to catch you but you haven't a chance

(Tara, Tara)
(Tara, Tara)

Well she rides a big motorbike
I really just want her to crawl
Well she rides a big motorbike
She does what she likes

(Tara, Tara)

She swings in the water tank high above town
Perfumes the garden when she's going down
Watches the stars as they shatter and break
Carves out a doughnut as she heads out the gate

(Tara, Tara)

Well hop into your harness and fire up your steed
Follow your instincts wherever they lead
When the fire dies down you can light up a smoke
Fry up some eggs and tell me a yolk

(Tara, Tara)
(Tara, Tara)

Well she rides a big motorbike
I really just want her to crawl
Well she rides a big motorbike
She does what she likes

(Tara, Tara)
(Tara, Tara)

 

One More Day Of Life
[added. Sept. 8, 2008]

[KJ]
I was swimming in darkness
The small ripples on the surface always dunked me
They gave me an idea of what was to come

She said I've something to tell you
[KJ] In the distance I can see it planting itself a sheath [0:23]
[KJ] And was too far away for me to catch
Her voice traveled inside of me
My head filled up with memory
[KJ] And when I finally reached a shore I will stumble onto land
[KJ] I found it hard to wait
Her voice traveled outside
[KJ] Something was gripping itself there in my chest
[KJ] And I was grasping for air

Well you take your medicine, it goes deep, it goes in
[KJ] I was hiding, hiding - hiding
Inside your skin and it's falling (falling)
[KJ] Pieces of you, pieces of him

You can't stop it or fight it, or black it or white it
[KJ] I was hiding, hiding - hiding
It's inside your smile and it's calling (calling)
[KJ] Pieces of you, pieces of him

She thought of something to give him
[KJ] I was walking into the wilderness
[KJ] With no guide and no clue of who I was or where I wanted to go
Her life unraveled inside of me
My lies, sounds of the memory
[KJ] My body couldn't support me and my soul vacated
[KJ] And the pieces of me remaining--was it me? was it truly me?
Her mind traveled behind

[KJ]
I was looking myself in the face
And facing myself made me blind and deaf
Is God really my friend?

Well you take your medicine, it goes deep, it goes in
[KJ] I was hiding, hiding - hiding
It's inside your skin and it's falling (falling)
[KJ] Pieces of you, pieces of him

You can't stop it or fight it, or black it or white it
[KJ] I was hiding, hiding - hiding
It's inside your spine and it's calling (calling)
[KJ] Pieces of you, pieces of him

[KJ]
I don't want to be Godless
I don't want to die and go to a Satan
I want to be upbeat and trusting me [2:58]
And free and full of spirit and full of life
And I want to be near the sea
Where the sky meets the earth
And I want to experience the joy of pain
Flesh and blood
Just for one more day
One more day of life
One more day of life

It's bigger and brighter and larger than life
It's inside your arm and it's humming (humming)

It's humming and thicker and faster and better
[KJ] I was hiding, hiding - hiding
Under your garden it's charming (charming)
[KJ] Pieces of you, pieces of him

It's better and nearer and fresher and truer
[KJ] I was hiding, hiding - hiding
Inside your heart it's forming (forming)
[KJ] Pieces of you, pieces of him

It's out there and in here and up front and sits here
Inside your head where it's warping, warping, warping
[KJ] And I want to experience the joy of being of flesh and blood just for one more day
It's out there and in here, up front and sits here
[KJ] One more day of life
Inside your head where it's warping, warping, warping
[KJ] One more day of life

 

On The Horizon
[added. Sept. 15, 2008]

The sea is telling me not to worry
About what I see when I close my eyes
I see my innocence fading in the sound
As you head towards another rainbow

Change, change is on the horizon
I packed my bags with goodbyes
I'm sorry, so sorry, I'm leaving tonight
To the sound and the rhythm of your heartbeat

In the core of me
There grows love on a tree
We can pick the fruits together

Is there light
Or just a glimmer of hope
Like the echoes of your voices will carry me over

Change, change is on the horizon
I packed my bags with goodbyes
I'm sorry, so sorry, I'm leaving tonight
To the sound and the rhythm of your heartbeat

Forever love
Forever us
Our dreams are together

Change, change is on the horizon
I packed my bags with goodbyes
I'm sorry, so sorry, I'm leaving tonight
To the sound and the rhythm of your heartbeat
To the sound and the rhythm of your heartbeat

 

A Light Southerly
[added. Sept. 22, 2008]

Instrumental

 

Inside Out
[added. Sept. 30, 2008]

Sailor on an angry sea
As the waves are raging mercilessly
Whichever way the weather be
It's just inside, inside out

Christian in a foreign land
Feeds a tawny lion from his hand
Just the way Jesus planned
It's just inside, inside out
It's just inside, inside out
It's just inside
It's without a doubt

(It's just inside out)

An alcove in a budding grove
Where the honeysuckle vines doth rove
??? [2:09] and lilies ??? [2:12]
It's just inside, inside out
It's just inside, inside out
It's just inside
It's without
It's without a doubt

Whichever way the weather be
It's just inside, inside out
It's just inside, inside out
It's just inside
It's without a doubt
A doubt

[3:42] Old redeemer
Apple never seeded
Old ???
Apples never seeded away
