Track Name: Burnt Colonel
Make a word for conversation
Is that transubstantiation
Please, Elise, go have the operation, yeah

It's been two steps since I've looked up
It makes me think it's quite enough
A package with unidentifiable stuff

Well it doesn't seem to have a name
How do we know now who to blame?
The record filing was all done in vain

Does it begin to make the endings?
The sour faces of bad lemons
Truth be told I shouldn't extend this

Well for some reason all the best matadors were fascists, who'd have guessed
What made them so divine, is attributed to escargot and wine

Standing in the fire of the infernal
The charred remains of my colonel
He told me not to stay
He didn't want it any other way
Track Name: No Plan
You in white
An elbow out
A hand upon
The hip

Awash in Night
And freed from doubt
A smile that cracks
The lips

Painted a new man
Part of a no plan
Washed up by high seas
Bendin' the bee's knees

Blown by the back draft
Funny but I laughed
Came up on some sand
Couldn't tell who's land

A bird had flown
Now perched upon
A tree that lacks
The roots

Some twigs might make
A nest for us
Some breeze might make
That moot

Part of a no plan
Washed up by high seas
Bendin' the bee's knees

Blown by the back draft
Funny but we laughed
Came up on some sand
Said it was our land
Track Name: Dream Invader
sit down quietly in rank turn my head 11th century living's fake or so i've read
well open up to the page that you want me to, that you want me to read. underwater brontasaurus in a forest, right

one of the things that's been discussed is it what it had no doubt of caring less, diggin cuts
well open up to the page that you want me to, that you want me to read. underwater brontasaurus in a forest right

what is life, is it nice, what is life, is it nice

why do you talk about the past as if it was all in the
i have a headache but i don't think it will last
where it happens is remote but its extent is vast
i have a headache but i don't think it will last

one of the things that's been discussed is it what. it had no doubt of caring less diggin cuts from east to west
expressionlessness is sharing its thoughts sifting seams are not naught. in the spirt of the times twist and doubt
Track Name: Intentions
If I had intentions
I wouldn't be bad
But as is I have some
And already am

Tonight, I might
Stretch me as far as I can
Because the light
Makes me a particle man

And when in the middle
And thinkin' of you
A whole lot of little
For feedin' the few

Tonight, I might
Stretch me as far as I can
Because the light
Makes me a particle man
Track Name: Can't Buy Love
I can't buy love even if it came up, up to me and it said 'I am free'
I can't decide if it's time to go inside, but if it is, I know it'll be the time for me

Mark down the pictures on the wall
Make it clear they're gonna fall

Come out of sleep and retrace all the sheep that have flown towards the ground, upside down
Why are the seams so apart from the start of our art, let him in, his chagrin

Mark down the pictures on the wall
Make it clear they're gonna fall

Come out of sleep and retrace all the sheep that have flown, flying towards the ground around, spinning upside down
Why are the seams so far apart, from the start of their depart, turned his back on color art, chagrin restarts
Track Name: Not Today
I tried to look for the sun
Break all my habits
Find out what's fun
Live in the present

I'd give me life away
But no one's gonna take it
I'm tryin' to live the way ok
But not today

Cause once I was stoned
And leavin' my hometown
Tripped up on the lag
Lookin' to get down

I gave my heart to you
You didn't seem to want it
I'm tellin' you the truth oh yeah
That I don't know
If he's gonna show

Cause it makes no difference at all
If the righteous can handle the fall
When the lamb breaks open the seal
And the boss just cuts him a deal

Yeah it just don't cut it
And it makes no inch of sense
When your friends say fuck it
And you're stuck payin' the rent
Track Name: Being Far Away
if i took fucked up doves turned it to we love
holding heads while we sleep in the bed at your knees

i cut the whole hole in half and one of them stayed in tact
i didn't know at the time what they meant, your eyes

paw and assault you
marionettes
i hope we fall off
from these nests

can i paw you?

scraping strings
muting waves
free insane
chemistry lanes

well, if i could die every night my life'd be a living wake
oh, how it is i find the things I hate in m

You direct and i descend hittin the old bottom again least i'm closer to bein far away
Track Name: Orion
Summer, elect
The zero marches on
The thought of the check
Malingers past the dawn

Orion, hold tight
The martyr's life is death
Orion, stay right
Stop spillin' all your breath
Cause what's left?

Not a hell of a lot
Sittin' 'round on the pot
With your headphones
and your car keys

Pick up the slack
Your cell phone calls you
Give in, give back
Her heart keeps ringin' on

Orion, your right
There is no milky way
Orion's alright
Just bein' it for the day
Cause who's to say, man?
Track Name: Automatic Jesus
Automatic Jesus looks
Just like any other
He winks and then he spreads his hooks
And says "Hey, where ya goin'?"

He talks just like a Casanova
He smiles and then he's in your face
Hey says, "Hey man I think I know ya
And did ya hear I own this place?"

Arise

Cause Automatic Jesus gives
Every thousandth dollar
You eat just so that he can live
He's all "Ha, Ha, Ha!"

He's in perpetual masturbation
The party was a hit for sure
He loved when you'd congratulate him
Says come on babe you're such a bore

Arise
Track Name: Folded Arms
i go to the moon whenever i want i'm an astronaut
i go to the desert whenever i can i'm a lizard leopard
the sorry kings, they're all distraught
when we fly our wings are birds

mollifies in the graves
too bad love is all the same
i can't even ask you
i don't want to even ask you

it's a fully formed idea of a
picture of you
Track Name: Any Day Now
Called my baby
Up for a date
Showed up stoned
An hour late

Cause if I'd been doing things
The way that you'd choose
I wouldn't be hangin' 'round
Or singin' these blues

And as it is
You only dream when drunk
To fill the future
With your father's junk

Punchin' in and punchin' out
And savin' your time
Keepin' your eyes
And leavin' what's mine

But any day now I'll be missin'
Count on nothin', but the missin'
Had a problem with cessation
Tried to solve some masturbation

Any day now
Any day now
I'll be ridin' high

Then some sorry eyes
On a worried face
Told me lots
About a finished race

Invited in and booted out
And kissed goodbye
Could never tell when
But you always knew why

Cause any day now you'll be missin
Count on nothin, but the missin'
Had a problem with cessation
Tried to solve some masturbation

Any day now
Any day now
You'll be flyin' by
Track Name: Every Single Now and Then
Can't lie here any night
before the out of towners lay down and die
the ground is soft from the digs
if it wasn't i'd simply sink in

I'd simply miss the sense.. of a capital offense.. it cant be on the fence.. if its over there

Stay over get closer.. i cant really see well there
from the bottom of the cliff

having nothing but the day brings something but not much

the wrong regards have you ever wandered far without turning your back
picturesque i think its just a colorful mess surrounded by the rest

Madmoseille you put a spell on the envelope and sent it through the mail
It's an entire pack of lone.. wolves.. ready to relax

What happened to the canteen ... even though its water was green
again a fire was lit.. then put out by lake Opposite
For all the missing dogs that met Fate in the gray dense fogs
I went .. looking.. but trails never end
