Track Name: JET IN WATER
jet in the water
shot 'neath the clouds
party to search for
sets the sun

stuck with a notion
not sure of what
space in my head
is freeing up

riding the coastline
waves to the top
high art official (artificial)
ditch the pot

I got a sister
dancing for fun
love radiation
weighs a ton

everyone's looking
at what they got
moon in the daytime
window shut

natural bullshit
avoidable
people explaining
think they know
Track Name: NO MORNING BLUES
I took a walk inside my head
the trees were tall

unto a narrow flight of stairs
down to the heart

never enough to say you love
what you only want

and for a year
you catch a fear
of being old

no morning blues
got me dumb
play your part with true or false

I'm over-welcomed by complaints
of people's thoughts

kingdom of skulls
they run a length
of eastern walls

never enough to talk about
plans that you're a part of

or comforting to be at ease
with what you haven't thought

more refuse
life reruns
don't regard these scrawls
or do?
Track Name: OFF THE FLOOR
bodies sweat with a billion pores
thinking of secrets that she knows
with a hand in her hand it's mine
faces dark but the lights restore

and I'm one to her million moves
feeling nervous and overdue
dance in middle of circle floor
and I got what is coming too

and we stay till the night is gone
but I can't really say how long
still I don't know if I had dreamt
what she whispered before she left

at the top of the old JQ
is the home of the moving room
kinda like the opposing club
where you don't need to speak too much

waking up to the morning news
shot 'em down in a place of blues
don't let that kind of thing bore you
or you're part of the problem too

and the feeling is like a wall
in a maze where they stand so tall
and it's rare that I feel one way
good and bad can you ascertain?

'guess the picture is way too large
understand that you can't save all
but there's still so much more to do
ask yourself when you're coming to

bribed by the banks
but the money's false
rising the ranks
of a funny cause
aldermen smile
front of city hall
they know the right moves
but it takes too long

she's holding half her face
'cause the bomb went off
you think it's in poor taste
just to bring it up
every moment passes
with new data
won't you try and make
a stronger loving world?
Track Name: ROLLING ON
you walked back
but not alone
a sudden street was crowded
you came about a path you never go

an odd belief was outed
the simple loudness
wrapped around those skulls

you felt completely able
to reach the cloud
it's not unusable

rolling on to the stop
I live off
there's a line you can cross
do time
what about the exhaust I breathe?
and dust on the memory box
can't see the start

you talked back
the men in robes
they never seem to doubt it
the out-of-body confidence is old

you help the down-and-outed
they seem to drown
and sorry's not enough

made by the suits at tables
they want to round up
any last few souls
Track Name: YOUR SONG IS STUCK IN MY HEAD
I'm like
losing the old sight
having a good time
I don't know

red palms
no need to stay calm
life's not to embalm

nodding to talk
it's toward you
sing and it pours
cool how it drones on

in my mind
lingers all the time
might be a bad sign
I hope so

song's life
went from yours to mine
bled over this time
so?

not just a forgotten tune
lives in your heart
too high to chart
Track Name: AN OLD DUO
trash
man's longest lasting mark
forced under skin of the earth

we
just don't want it to stop
garbage, the most present god

and in her forest of love
I'll either stop caring or
build a stronger loving world
Track Name: PLANNED ACT SHUN
wake up into the night
I'll take the morning line
it forks and tunnels through
out came in storied gloom

what price for honest love?
maybe less than you thought
I'll be discharged
for my heart

made up some old same views
each one lives to assume
keep searching in the news

hey what's worth writing for?
don't just pretend to know
I'll take the shot
it's planned action
not some ego abuse

or some substance turn-to
brain lights up but rhyming's super slow
very slow

said she time was too late
and loneliness is all I've ever known
