wyalusing, on a sunday afternoon hidden camera in a private room call me kid concern, kid adirondack call me down by the bank some token breezes in escort the coffee as the camera freezes him call me 555, 215 call me an xmas cone, pot-bellied all through June fins and ankles, speak a language from the moon call me broken shouldered, average fingered call me

lyrics adapted very freely from Andrew Marvell's "on a drop of dew" see how the orient dew shed from the bosom of the morn into the blowing roses careless of its mansion new for the clear region round in its self incloses and in its little globe's extent frames as it can its native element so the soul, that drop, that ray of the clear eternal day within the flow'r be seen remembring still former height remembring its blossom it shun the leaves and b green and, recollecting light, in its pure and circling on earth: but does, dissolving, run into the glories of th' mighty sun so the soul, that drop, that ray of the clear eternal day

the hippy 02:55
What did that hippy say to make you so angry, anyway it didn't sound so bad to me you say we both need a little sleep go back to counting sheep a twist of lemon in our tea and I know that back in New York City where you cannot relax you never turn your back we wouldn't have to wonder we wouldn't need to ask I had an awful evening got stuck and left stumbling trailing blood back to the hole that gives me shelter from the cold putting pennies in a roll to come and see you in the snow and I know...

She's the one he wants to know so he waits outside in the lunar glow young sumerians alive young sumerians alone (young, so young) bodies radiant with light young sumerians in stone (young, so young) she's the daughter of the wind she can't be tamed or brought to heel by him young sumerians alone young sumerians alive (young, so young) magic in the creature's bones young sumerians are alright (young, so young)

eliot crib 03:52
(excerpted from preludes III by t.s. eliot) You tossed a blanket from the bed, You lay upon your back, and waited; You dozed, and watched the night revealing The thousand sordid images Of which your soul was constituted; They flickered against the ceiling. And when all the world came back And the light crept up between the shutters, And you heard the sparrows in the gutters, You had such a vision...

two brothers working on a plan to uproot the population consolodate the land two brothers with a wild gene in their family sweet revenge in the woods of saxony wealthy women leave their doors unlocked 'cause it's not like that here and we're just going 'round the block wealthy women trust their babies with all the jewelery party time in the woods of saxony pulling strings that might work this time but don't you know who you've been betrayed by? two brothers working side by side get the shock of a lifetime when right before their eyes two others that they raised from babies to share their dreams set fire to the woods of saxony pulling strings...

i hit the wall i'm exactly as portrayed by that fool you've seen around no need to waste anymore of your day, 'cause i'm too proud for suicide who knows, i might be hypnotised to remain in spite of the fire amusing olympians who watch me fall and get up again are you the voices i hear in the night? again, the morning will come to guide the way, but the shadows learn to hide in vacant places my hopes are baseless but i'm too proud for suicide although it might be by design i'm alone in spite of the fire reliving some history learning how to make that fire do all the work for me it's gotta eat, it's gotta breathe i'm exactly as portrayed by that fool you've seen around you know, it might be by design

I was dreaming when I wrote this so if u prefer I'll get up and turn the music off and get to work on a complicated rhyme but it's easy to sing so tonight my love these eyes are opening they told me to forget about the satellites and keep chipping at those rocks till they resemble dice with a tiny, servile smile I turned back to my wheel but tonight my love those stars will fall for real
