Track Name: Red
Take the color red
put it on your head
if it hurts or it spreads
pick a needle, go to bed

Take the color red
put it on your bed
spring of finger
spring of death
vessels on your shelf

Take that finger go to bed
if it screams, if it smells
flush blue tissue through your head
Wheel of Fortune, wheel of death
roll it all up in a cell, let that cell go to hell
pull it back up from the well, when it screams pull it out and stuff it in your mouth
chew it up spit it free, those spots on the street
when you finally put it out from the stuffing in your mouth
those spots on the street, spots on the street

Take the color red, Spring the needle , Now spring a dead
Rubberband, Now rubberman, Sprung the needle, Now Fandaman
Put the beetle, Now fit the ride, From the needle, No friends of mine
Sprinkle Dinkle, Rubber Can, Squeeze the squish until
Spring of finger, Spring of Death
Track Name: Day Was Gone
The Rays took the Clock
The Bridges went underneath
The Day was Done

The birds lost their Coats
Those mamoths in those boats
The Day was Done

The baby squirrel took the oath
the rain crossed their throats
The Day was Done

The rain took the cold
come in, leave it alone
The Day was Done

Hey, leave those owls alone

The cow bent my arm
All the Golden years rolled in one
The Day was Done

The Cat caught my tongue
the Day was Gone
Track Name: Bushat Shmei Shhorim
לבושת שמי שחורים בחוץ רק עורב תלוי בחוט לא רוצה להסתכל אליו יש לו מבט חדוד
התא זכרון
יער זקוף
מתאבן ברוש ראשה

לבושת שמי שחורים לוגמת מין הים מים עשויים ממיץ טהור של בטנה
השומר לא מדבר
רק אחד יכול לראות דרך החור יהלום פרות
הוא השומר שלא מדבר
לסובב לו את התקליט שיגלה סוד מהתחתית

הלילה בא
וכל אישה
נרגה לבת
מניקה, לא רוצה
ללבוש את השמלה
כוכבי אבק במדורה

רק רוצה לראות אותה עם אותו אותה אישה רק רוצים לראות את המגבעת
היא רוצה לראות אותה היא מוצאת את הים נקודה שלא מספיקה להבהב בלב מנוקד
ברגליי חופי קרה סופות ֿבטלטלה היא רצתה בעץ קרוב ללבה
היא מצאה בשערה קידון קטן עשוי נוצה ונתנה אותו לשומר
לה לה לה…
אך הוא עוד לא דיבר ודפק את המסמר עם קידון נוצה הוא רצה
לראות את היער קם כאיילת העשן, הוא מצא אותה בשדה האילה
ובשדה חוטה ליטול כותנה, במבטה עוד אישה ועוד ילדה השומר והעורב רצו לראות אותה


אז היער נזקף
מחוט על תקרה
שמי ההבנה
אבן על חוטה
היא רצתה לעוף עד לשם
אבל מה נשאר
רק עורב בחלונה
Track Name: Grin
Ahum
Somebody Grinned
Ahum
Somebody Swayed
Vessels cry to the sirened pile sky
a latex polished eye

Ahum... (whistle)

Ahum
Somebody Grinned
Ahum
Somebody Swayed
Vessels cry to the sirened pile sky
a latex polished eye

Said I don't want to sleep under a cotton covered horse
the rivers run steep blue through the cotton covered corpse
where the children hide land-filled blood and bind
said I don't want to sleep on the back of my toes
I Said I don’t want to sleep under cotton covered horse
The rivers, slits of glue cotton written through the joints
As the children grin land-filled bloody wind
Said I don’t want to sleep on the back of my toes

where the colored vessel cries
the colored vessel cries

I said I don’t
I said I don’t
Track Name: I Wait
I wait, I wait
covered in snow
wait for time, for time is cold

I wait where I stay words caught in the stones
mar-rowed bone forget their home, won’t you come back home.

I waited for the snow
I waited but my hands are cold
I waited for the snow
I waited for you in the snow

I wait I wait caught in the rocks
can someone take my left wing off
I think I’ve flown enough
I cant believe my two little twins caught between the suns
their yellow cries and marrow lies, wont you come back home

I waited for the snow
I waited but my hands are cold
I waited for the snow
I waited for you in the snow
Track Name: The Three Giants that Stole my Breath
The Giant steps, they take my Breathe
I want Savior, your in my arm for lay, the giants.

Ancients of Asia falling from the tree
Forgive my soul for my hands are set free
Candy on the sidewalk forever take my hand
For there is a land beyond my hand
take my hand
take my hand.

There is a story about three Giants
has anyone seen, anybody seen them around?
Has anybody, anybody seen them around, they stole my breathe!?

Dead swordsman
kneeling on their frown
separate the sound from the man on the ground
I've written on these stones written on by storms
the seas of Breathe

The Giant steps Take my breathe
The Giant steps Take my breathe.
Track Name: Color Rise
You never know
When the cold wind rise
You cant behold what you hold
When you hold it right
The one you know, no, no
Will the color rise
When the rolling inside and the hand in the rye
Don’t you know when the cold wind rise
The only bone left alone is your own.

I can’t hold back the city streets
Caught my hands beneath my feet

When the rolling inside
And the color rise
Don’t you hold, let the cold wind rise

I can’t hold back the city streets
Caught my hands beneath my feet
Track Name: Remote Control
When I’m Happy
When I’m sad
when I’m just on my own
Remote Control...

When I’m worried
when I’m scared
I look in the mirror I thought I saw a bear
Remote control...

Remote Control
Can the bear leave

Remote control

When I’m worried when I’m scared I got out of bed oh that forgotten hair
I’m a battery case , I’m a battery base, I’m a battery save, save me
Still sucking on my thumb my mom was born again
No I really really really, I said I really wanted to run

Can the bear leave? (remote control...)
Can the sky change? (remote control...)

Remote control...
(Hebrew…)
Track Name: Crayon Colored Crows
This pack of crayons
Gets me coloring these crows
Pointed conuses to hold
Send them south of the south poles
Where this pile of bones cannot be controlled
Silly flashlights cannot show what’s deep and dark in these holes
But these colorful crows
These crayon colored crows

Put on your ears and it will snow
Its cold
Its cold

These crayon colored crows
Oohh…
And it will snow.
Track Name: Sad House
Sometimes I took the wrong trail
falling backwards off that highest rail

Living in a box the windows shut my eyes
The train keeps going on the other side
Drunk men in suits making deals in my head
Oh my god did you hear what he just said

Sometimes my finger is on my hand
picking up electricity inside my bed
three men in suits making deals in my head
Calm down now you know your all instead

Buttons cop buttons cop up, Buttons call my brain cells
Buttons call Button combs Button up Button combs my Brain cells

Can you hear the sound, its the size of my mouth
The windows shut the size of my eyes

Living in a box the windows shut my eyes
The train keeps going on the other side
Drunk men in suits making deals in my head
Oh my god did you hear what he just said
just said, just said, just said.
