Track Name: Grift & Gum
Erase each line out of me!
They are so broken down by lame & numb.
With each line that's been erased
there's a new day that will come along to drift from.

For all I know my dreams have come.
A pile now outgrown with gum.
Why hold on when none still grow?

In the sunshine will the morning meet the cold
with just the wavelength to make all our grasses grow?
I lay down my bed of days.
Raise all my better days.

Now we're old and made anew.
The season we drift through
that have no way to youth.
How lazy we blaze through all those better days
when it seems they go

on and on
from out of things that come.
So far away then from the rule and a hum.

On and on.
The grift within us then.
With all the games we play
to crawl in someone's bed.
I laid down by better days.
Reach out for better days.

In the sunshine
well hello there meet the old.
Its just the new day where we're brought into our own.

On we go.
Fear within us that
if all we came to has evolved into our best.
Why live out these better days
without our better days?
Track Name: Hailey
Oh Hailey
B Screen Lady
Your hair has loose ends
Tease the mess in

Oh, Hailey
I dreamed you hit me
And that you hurt me
As we had foreseen

Could this mean at last now
That we’ve past our
infatuated moment?
What drew us so close in

Could this be the moment
Where you just stand there
Oh and you ignore me
Like you don’t know me?

Leaving me haunting
The same old story
Drawn out and boring
So far

Oh, Hailey
The way you strip me
Undo my sleeve
From tie pin cufflink

Into pleated fold
You roll
The fabric up my arm
so slow

Pleated folds
You roll
The fabric up my arm

Hailey I need you now
I can’t forget you how
It came to be
Your song Heartbeats
Inside my bed
Inside my head
The Knife keeps pounding

Hailey
Your blue jeans baby
Ripped but stitched in
Between your legs when

Your giving me kisses
Fooling with scissors
Oh when you kiss me
Your lips just snip me

I guess the miles belong between us
They both keep us safe
And so well behaved
Track Name: Static Noise
Well this must not be what you had in mind
Static noise
It must just be what you channel by
Re-invite

The lazy aspiration
Set aside
Fallen expectation
From your static cloud

But you should look forward
And relate
It’s just static now

You should look forward
And relate
It’s just static now

Another day is wasted
Laying down your rib and thumb

Passing and complacent
You’re still spinning from

Where you should look forward
And relate
Is just static now
Track Name: Hard From Now On
Things should be hard from now on
Since i found new love
It came to me and made one
Love washed down

Things should be hard from now on
Since I found you lord

You came to me and made me one
When I found you

Its been so long since I found enough
Someone to fill my cup
To feed me love

The days grow long
Cold and alone

I waited for the day to come
But I burned for one

I was calling out
I was calling out
To someone in the blaze of cane
From a season’s cut

You took my hand and we prayed
Through the ash and sun became;
Sweetgrass, leaf, flora, maize and defeated moth

To Long!
From now on
I've found you lord

It came to me and made me one
Your arm touched down

Things should be hard from now on
Since I found you lord

I was waiting for the day to come
Till I found you

Should we go on?
Has time undone
All the work that we pour
To seed and ground?

All we are

Plans and heart

Hold us in
Contain our need and thought!

Its crowded now

The sky brought drought
Clothe me in white and bath me
Lead me up

To where man and priest sing
Through the hands unite in chain
Around the altar stained 
of spleen and blood

Too Long!

From now on
I've found new love
It came to me and made me one
Your arm touched down

Things should be hard from now on
Since I found you lord

I waited for the day to come
around to your hum

To Long!

From now on

I've found you lord
You came to me and made me one
Your arm touched out

Things should be hard from now on
Since I found new love
It came to me and made me one
When I found you
Track Name: Slow Divorce
Is it truth that in our slow divorce nothing’s close?
It seems that I’ve been away in the war
How will I go on as before?
Returning to norm when now I live on as a ghost
Dragging you through our slow divorce
You know I’m sad of course.

Was it you who in our slow divorce left us holding hope to leave and recourse?

The army returning to storm to live on in the raid they preform
Oh I’ve been away in the war holding out to return here once more.
Track Name: Extended Play (Saddest of Us)
Its you on the node
of a wave that arcs and bends down to hold
me where
I know you’re not there
I know that you could but you don’t

And if I have brought the wave to be at all that's because
to me it seemed you gained just as much
The way you draw and cling to me with every touch
I see you walk with that flame in us

But now you draw away like a game is all that it was
For you it was just fun
Oh but has its gotten you shaken up?
Did you want us both but not for me to be the one?

Or you just don’t hold
yourself in a high enough esteem to know
that what you’re doing is mean
And once taken over me
how could I be one to move on now?

First of all
you were wrong
to play with my heart
for leading me on
To keep your mouth numb was your lie
You shouldn’t play with my heart like you had no idea

This guilt that now has become your drive
will bury you if all you deny
is who you are or that your heart tried
to tear you apart from her and your idea

First of all
you were wrong
to play with my heart
for leading me on
To keep your mouth numb was your lie
You shouldn’t play with my heart

Now you should just own
up to the way you locked your lips on to home
me in

And I should've have known I guess
I’m sure you love her
I should know

Since now
I draw this strange distain from all that it was
I see that we became
the saddest of us
Track Name: Ghost That Moves in Two
You should move on
Come away to be set free from the pattern that you roam

It may mean more than love if it matters much
It hasn’t though so far so don’t let go

I see you know
I’ve watched you float your way through town
A haze to those around

Step away and find the secrets in your night
A light burns with the brightness of your star

If you are what you say you are
then why would you have let it go so far

Your love is not enough
if you can’t back it up with the action of what you talk

But you won’t just say it once
“It’s not enough!”

I’ll have you know now I’m on to you
I feel you move when the breeze blows through your room

I know you’re see-through to most
still I fear the ghost you deny that moves there too

Cause in our time we both found you there
Your body had this glow was not as warm as the one you know

The other face inside the shadows that you hid in
came to creep out from the attic that you haunt

What did you want?
Was it to get caught?
Or to consume it all and be filled out?

Just once?
Or not at all?
A repeat of the cackle of what you call your love.

Just say it once!
“I’m so screwed up!”
Track Name: Eyes On the Wrecking Ball
oh come on
now that's enough
you've got it wrong
been so mixed up now come home
leave the scene alone

lay it down
what's your business here
what have they made out of you

while you feed on the new
the cheep is such a view

little lady
your eyes on the wrecking ball
you know that's not you're style
but you love it though
to lay back and take in it all

little lady
your eyes on the wrecking ball
you know that's not you style
but you love it though
to send her back through the wall

You look her over
where have her clothes gone?
they've raise her up to wave her junk
crying broken up

and wide eyed
you take it in
that's why your worse than them

Miley Miley Breaky Heart
what's the matter now?
hear her talk amongst the jaw and the chatter
how to very nicely record

maybe she's crazy or high off of chemical
she can't sleep at night when the moon is full
with her friends that gaggle along

little lady
your eyes on the wrecking ball
you know that's not you style
but you love it though
to send her back through the wall
