Track Name: All
I wanna run all the red lights and rush all ahead
but I wanna take my time to send you a message
I want it all
Is that so wrong
I want it all all all all all
but I'll take some
I wanna spend you and to save you up
I wanna keep you and to eat you up
I want it all
Is that so wrong
I want it all all all all all
but I'll take some

I got a little left to hold until we get it growing
Hurried I bumped my knee and now it's swollen
You wanna break it down and start again, alright
I'll let you get your rest, up all night
You wanna take a sec for my letter at the light
I'll welcome you and send you off right

I want it all
Is that so wrong
I want it all all all all all
but I'll take some
I want it all
Is that so wrong
I want it all all all all all
but I'll take some

I wanna call you but I don't know why I don't know why I
don't know what I wanna call you tonight
I wanna call you but I don't know why I don't know why I
don't know what I wanna call you tonight
I wanna call you but I don't know why I don't know why I
don't know what I wanna call you tonight
I wanna call you but I don't know why I don't know why I

Track Name: Better This Way
I GET TO CHOOSE BETWEEN
A DUSTY WINDOW
AND A SCREEN

IT'S BETTER THIS WAY

A MOTE, SUSPENDED, IS FLOATING
RECTANGLES CONTAIN ME

IT'S BETTER THIS WAY
IT'S BETTER THIS WAY

CONSIDER THE WEIGHT
IT'S GONNA GO A LONG WAY
TO ALLEVIATE

IT'S BETTER THIS WAY
IT'S BETTER THIS WAY

SMOKE AND TAKE ANOTHER NOTE FROM MY COTERIE
STOKE A FREQUENCY
YEAH I LIKE HOW THEY FRAME ME

IT'S BETTER THIS WAY
IT'S BETTER THIS WAY

I BEEN RAINED OUT,
REINED IT IN,
I BEEN RUNNIN
INTO THE OCEAN

IT'S BETTER THIS WAY
IT'S BETTER THIS WAY
IT'S BETTER THIS WAY
IT'S BETTER THIS WAY
Track Name: Deep, Well
Under your skin, where I can't kill the air
My injection, when I been banned from this land
Swear I won't seep into your secret subterranean somewhere to sleep

And it may seem strange to you, but it's perfectly normal to me
And it may seem strange to you, but it's perfectly normal to me
And I feel afraid for you...

Under your skin, I am a living hell
Now I begin, well, to insinuate myself, deep
Inside your life hides your secret subterranean somewhere to sleep

And it may seem strange to you, but it's perfectly normal to me
And it may seem strange to you, but it's perfectly normal to me
And I feel afraid for you.
Track Name: Invisible, Man
strength was your first desire having always been quite small... next you needed wealth and riches for ultimate control... anyone would have made those wishes if the djinn had come to them and yes you've been a tyrant but somehow you stayed a friend... somehow you stayed a friend but there were things you couldn't do still, tastes you couldn't touch 'cuz then someone might see you and they would see too much... they would see too much... your first and second wishes did some damage, made me wish that bottle never had been found but you're the one whose wishes were granted and I can't wish that bottle back into the ground... it got dark out then but I didn't lose you, not until you turned invisible... dark in here, no, not until you turned invisible, until you turned invisible, not until you turned invisible, man... and although you could not be caught, it was also just as much that you never had to look yourself in the eye, you only had to watch, and although you could reappear at will, you've forgotten how with time, and all those who once looked up to you now lock their doors at night, yeah, it got dark out then but I didn't lose you, not until you turned invisible... dark in here, no, not until you turned invisible, until you turned invisible, not until you turned invisible, until you turned invisible, not until you turned invisible, until you turned invisible, not until you turned invisible, man
Track Name: Botany
indigo is for the twilight
amber's for the firelight
blues are for the sky and seas
for botany, the verdigris

white, white is the stone
red, red is the blood
red, red is the blood

for the ink and the midnight
for the sweet sunshine
for the dark and for the tar
for the shimmer on the water

for all the animals
and galaxies
for all the family trees

indigo is for the twilight
amber's for the firelight
blues are for the sky and seas
for botany, the verdigris
for the ink and the midnight
for the sweet sunshine
for the dark and for the tar
for the shimmer on the water

white, white is the bone
red, red is the blood
love, love is the glow
Track Name: Moon Song
yeah and the way she's on
you can feel her pulse
riding with your own
yeah and the way she flows with the moon
does it hold her back or spur her on?

might have been a memory
might have been a man
(back when, the fatherman)
might just be the wind along the limbs
but I just keep wishing you'd listen
(you'd listen)

so you be wise son, she's loving another age
in these machines, she's not at home
she needs the night alone to give it to the moon
Track Name: Let It Roll
It's not money anymore, it's never money anymore
When you let it go - Hey!
You don't throw it at the floor, you don't just throw it in the hole,
Let me show you,
Here let me show you!
You got to let it roll, let it describe a spiral, oh,
Let it spin instead of just dropping it in...

I follow the prophet to the chain motel,
The crowd becomes a congregation
And in his hands there is a wishing well!

To live a life of service is a virtue,
Out on the island we all get by just fine
And we won't see you be thirsty
When we're all throwing in, doing everything to keep it growing...
To keep it growing.

It's not money anymore, it's never money anymore
When you let it go - Hey!
You don't throw it in the hole, you gonna throw it towards the floor?
Let me show you,
Here let me show you!
You got to let it roll, let it describe a spiral, oh,
Let it spin instead of just dropping it in...

The followers collect to hear him tell it,
Poolside I see the demonstration.
The Man in the Panama speaks with his hands
And the wishing well expands...

To live a life of service is a virtue,
Out on the island we all get by just fine
And we won't see you be thirsty
When we're all throwing in, doin everything to keep it growing...
To keep it growing.
You got to let it roll, let it describe a spiral, oh,
Let it spin instead of just dropping it in,
Instead of just dropping it in...
Track Name: The 103rd Degree
It beats down, unrelenting,
Record indices.
As predicted, we sizzle, melt or
Finally crumble.
Oh well! You think we've got it bad?
At least we're not with the frozen or the flooded.
Oooh, they've really got it bad.
Mercy, misery.

We grow dark, metacystizing.
Skies in negative, sublimated.

Finally we feast.
Blood or bread, man?
I'll take some of each.

Oh no! Suddenly horrified,
We face another blaze to our systems.
We cannot douse it enough to cool
Our burning furnaces.

Oh Hell! Isn't it underground?
Not when you believe in evolution.
Oooh, we are tunneling underground,
Mutate, meditate.
Track Name: City In The Sky
See me at ground level,
This is how I get around
Two wheels + a frame, this is my only chain so stay practical,
Participate in the struggle,
Continue to renovate + reinvent +
dream every day like it might be shaken awake again,
Ok be slept on but stay lucid, way prescient,
Be real or irrelevant.
That's fine + I ride, swoop + climb, never collide + I'll be on time
And in play;
and never any love lost along the way.
Yeah so you say, so try to explain the faint
Flicker, once a flame, feels like...
only yesterday.
Increments inch away + turn visible as pixels
Or crystallized grit on a screen that was backlit.

Built it up in my mind,
Our city in the sky;
I arrived digitized

Tryin to break new ground, you break only bones,
lookin like the ground is winnin for now.
Hollerin mouths keep talkin shit,
pitchin zip you keep diggin
Ditches so shallow, better look down -
you're trippin.
Whole crew, ship of legalized clones,
DNA dehumanized, gangs of true GMOs,
In for the assist, rust resistant,
Ok grow crops so high, you know
You're only answerin to Monsanto.
Today you innovate, push product, hop traps
But I can't say I'm convinced you're
steerin this ship out the straits.
People peddlin pedo, sick/disrespect raps
or the most joyous of choruses
all elates + deflates us, so
Incinerate your manifestos.

You're only turnin with the times;
I cycle like this cuz I'm
Millenia-head of mine.

Shamanic levels as of yet not ascended to,
yeah better look down + ahead while pedalin
around potholes + dead ends (Ahem)
I.E. Devices that might self-ignite,
Sent to rend all asunder,
To render any progression,
Limbs akimbo in rigor +
Creepin like a procession in halftime,
The bridge + the breakdown,
Corporeal takedown,
No elegy, finality,
No fucking recovery.
Track Name: Ocelot On
ocelot on the precipice
and the science is beyond my comprehension
and i think i might just be the last
that is the feeling

climbing up this tree
the ultimate in unattainability
lost a little sparrow through my teeth
she's still within reach...

ocelot

ocelot on the precipice
and the science is beyond my comprehension
and i think i might just be the last
that is the feeling

that is the feeling

that is the feeling
Track Name: Counter Clockwise
we lost an hour in the morning
that we borrowed from the sun, some months ago
where has the day gone?

flying past windows
as blue as shadows
some of our clocks are wrong

I'm saving daylight for another day
another darker night when the green all leaves the trees
oh, for a rainy one

what's that say about me?
all time, no energy
ain't it the other way 'round?

we were no farmers but we had our gardens
and we waited on the rain
it gets a little late, it goes a little long
yeah

flying past windows
as blue as shadows
some of our clocks are wrong

flying past windows
as blue as shadows
some of our clocks are wrong
Track Name: My Marquee
