Red 04:42
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

Day Was Gone 03:15
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

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 Dressed in sky of black, outside only a raven hanging on a string, she does not want to look at it, because of its sharp gaze Memory cell An erect forest Turns to stone in her mind Dressed in black skies sipping sea sex water made from pure holy juice of her stomach The guard does not speak Only one can see through the cow's diamond hole He's the guard who does not speak Turn his record to reveal a secret from the bottomless pit Night is coming And every woman turns into a girl Breastfeeding, I do not want to wear the dress Dust stars in the bonfire. Just want to see her with the same the same woman just want to see the bowler. She wants to see her and she finds the sea a point that is not enough to flicker with a dotted heart My feet were cold and stormy. She wanted a tree close to her heart She found a little feather in her hair and gave it to the guard La la la… But he had not spoken yet and knocked the nail with a feather crown he wanted to see the forest rise like the deer of smoke, he found it in the field of the eclipse. And in a field cut to take cotton, another woman and another guard girl and the crow wanted to see her Then the forest woke up From string attached to the ceiling sympathetic sky A stone on her string She wanted to fly up to there but what was left only a crow at her window.

Grin 04:22
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

I Wait 04:09
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

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.

Color Rise 04:20
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

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…)

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.

Sad House 03:06
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.
