Track Name: Tie the Air
broken context
finds a right to stray
running through me
like a river through land
a head case to live in my gut
and unsteady hands
hold my words too much

why do I try to tie the into knots
I waste my time trying to tie the into knots

I'll be all that I can be
I'll be all that I can be
hold hands, hold heads, hold tight
hang friends hang heads, hang tight

you can find out trying to hold to salt
silence over, let's find a way to fault
because I won't be here for too long
I won't waste my time for too long
Track Name: Holiday Face
rhinestone
I see it your smile
I get excited
when you're home
my eyes light up like
a light show
I see it in your smile
I get excited
when you're home
my eyes light up like
a light show

I've been sleeping in my a bed snug like a bug
comfy sweet and fast asleep
let's get together and celebrate

you got valentine cheeks
and your eyes light up like a Christmas tree
and your smile is a firework's gleam
and you're so sweet its almost spooky
and I'm a fool, you know you make me laugh easy
with you I know I can laugh easy
with you I know I can rest easy
with you you know I can rest easy

Track Name: WataWataWata
apple tree,
the ceiling was leaking
sunny day
water is with me

you got high mountains to look up to
talking loud like 'everybody do too'
and we're both an ounce of a man
pounds worth of thoughts
pocket pocket over hands
and you don't give it a chance
shotgun decision
water water water's with me

heavy boots
waddle waddle waddle with me
so you go ahead and leave
but I won't go I won't go

Just run! just run, water water water's with me
oh no no no
I'll be saying 'I won't go I won't go'
Just run woop! wah-oh wah-oh wah-oh wah-oh
oh no no no no
you'll be saying that 'it's too slow it's too slow'
just run wAtAwAtAwAtAwAtA
oh nonononono
I'll be saying 'I won't go I won't go I won't go I won't go'
Track Name: Sun Dogs
it's to rise up and to soak up
Springer legs walk with a hippie smile
and the sun dogs watch the birds flock
sepia shepherd in the back yard

no need to kick up dust in the soil that you call your own
they putz around with content in their surrounds

even in the brush there's gold
mock suns no woes
perk your ears this ground it knows
sun dogs, a smile's on too

a friendly walk, body language talks
comforting comfort in the same place
and mock suns form a dust song
I sing along holding my own hazy hands

the beasts are out and I know my heart can feel at ease alone
the trees hold hands with leaves but eventually you know that they'll let go-o-o-o-o
you can't call me friend but I know that I am

even in the brush there's gold
mock suns no woes
perk your ears this house it knows
mock suns, sun dogs
even in the brush there's gold
gun dogs done lawns
perk your ears the ground it knows
sun dogs, a smile's on too
Track Name: Barabara
so I've gone and left for you a void in which to write
and you can illustrate me with the darkest ink you find
inching like an earthworm's dream I've been feeling better
and we are all survivors yes, there's always work to do

my feet will start to itch because my story line is dry
I want a feathered back with my wings all colored wild
but I'm okay in the basement yeah I'll keep treading water
I can play the hermit's role with a hundred dancing crabs

my guts were calling out like a loon
I panicked didn't know what to do
I wanna leave my footprints with no more blood trails
you know I'm sorry, I said I'm sorry

my guts were calling out like a loon
but my mind's shoulders have finally come loose
you know I'm sorry, I said I'm sorry
but I can't learn it
unless I love it

why do I stay inside while the sun is shining?
Track Name: Forward
a few good friends can keep you sane
and make you leave your house again
your words fit right into their ears

but the earth is broken wide
and you can step which way you like
I think you should take a step forward, gotta take a step forward

trees don't care about your plans
and the skies will never lend a hand
my legs only have me
and my hands only have me

I did not choose my name
how I look or how I lay
when you're standing on a rolling ball
it's hard to even walk at all

I read of bodies that used to build
fantastic wonders they fulfilled
and I know so much is beyond me
a warm embrace can be a wooden gate
an anchor is a friendly face
a step forward is a step away
a step forward is a step away

Track Name: Earth Unfolding
distracted by the weight of my eyes
it's hard to get myself to sleep at night
my sticky thoughts are stuck on other's thoughts

now books are tied up to my hands
and I'm slower than a turtle up on land
just trying to leave behind my own shells

and I, I'm not the wind
I'm a trickily spigot
and find me my calloused feet
and find me my sweat

cause I smeared my heart around
on loved ones and on plans
and I'm slipping in red muck
and I've got none of it left

unfold the sticky soil
it's all you, it's foolproof
laughing little lanterns guide you through the night time
unfold the sticky soil
its all you, a fool's proof
laughing little lanterns knowing something that you don't

I take a breath and finally say
I'm ready for the west to win all my friends away
and maybe I'll throw my bones to the road
to tell the truth I'm so afraid
everyone hands out their little "it will be okay"'s
but the earth's unfolding and you go

unfold the sticky soil
they tell you a fool's proof
laughing little lanterns are coming in the night time
unknown the pieces toil
it's all through it's all through
keep you in the night time, wake you in the morning
unfold the sticky soil
it's all you, it's foolproof
laughing little lanterns unfold the sticky soil

the path is unwinding, earth is unfolding this time is due
I'm losing your warmth, I'm losing mine too
I got this rib cage to fill and lord knows that I am trying to
sift through the soil finding what makes it full
