Track Name: Raking Season
weather is breaking
rake up all the leaves
she speaks a different language
wear my brain on my sleeve
bury your sins way, way down
take her out to a fancy dinner
did the pharaohs all speak latin
i saw something once in the movies
culture is an undisputed god
one foot in the grand canyon
airplanes ain't got the time
there's a hole in the entire sky
rake up all the leaves
Track Name: Neon
it's a nice night
it's been a long time
since i've had the nerve to be myself
some things fade away
it's not our fault
just let it happen
i can see things changing
typically i like to keep it the same
it's a nice night
it's been a long time
since i've had the nerve to go out
i see only neon
tell me are your feelings really hurt
sometimes i know i tend to neglect them
see the people and all their baggage
i hope someday we can carry it home
is the lesson any good if it lacks dramatics
if you let me
i'm accepting
just ring the bell and watch it happen
it's a nice night
it's been a long time
since i've had the nerve
Track Name: Post Spring
summertime means it's time to cut the lawn
sit on my porch and turn the mower on
i didn't mean to freak you out
it's just the way i am
the sprinklers spray the neighbors dog
heat melts all of our ice cream cones
peer out the window at the thunderstorm
take a walk around this town
listen to the sounds
climbing kids
in the trees
planning all of their dreams
close the garage
music on
playing your favorite song
bicycles speed along
the old sidewalks
lightening bugs in your hair
you don't care
Track Name: Buffalo In The Graveyard
buffalo in the graveyard
tip-tow lightly in the night
hiding behind the maple tree
it's crooked and falls all over me
don't run away
it's all over your face
what if you stayed
it's all over your face
the truth is
i wish i could replace all these moving parts
buffalo in the city
rush around me constantly
all these people in the shade
mumbling their own names
Track Name: Timothy
fell in love
with someone
you liked
last night
say his name
in your sleep
sing to timothy
where'd he go
you don't know
will he come back
to you now
let down
it ain't no surprise
what hath god wrought
you thought
outta sight
you're fine
and all this useless pride
keeps it weird
where can you be
did we lose you friend
you left your trumpet behind
Track Name: The Broken Lunar Men
check out all the astronauts
they've all lost their jobs
all they do is hassle the cops
steal cars and graffiti the walls
what will we do
what can we do
up above our heads
what do we do with all this space
they started a band
the broken lunar men
digital-alt-hip hop
singing the moons a place to send the cops
Track Name: White Light
when you see the range
and it looks blank
black sparrow
broken arrow
lay the tracks
and don't look back
buffalo roam
natives home
when you see the light
and it looks white
run for the hills
plow the fields
and sing low
country home
massa's spiritual
when dixie breathes down your neck
land for sale
bring in the rail
if you see the light
and it looks white
Track Name: Slimy
i met a girl named slimy
she's the only girl who stood by me
we drove her dad's corvette
we talked about the day we first met
oh my slimy
Track Name: Way To Wellsville
making our way to wellsville
stuck on a bus with no way off
someone wrote a secret note
the fourth of july is all that we got
statues are coming up
through the lawn
the neighbors are watching
pissing dogs
challenging rules at the swimming pool
stay home sick with the mailman
mama says it's time to go to bed
Track Name: Haunt
what is this thing for
do you want it anymore
was it really even yours
hope they can find a cure
it's harder now
than it was before
wish i could walk
a million miles more
annie don't you like your gift
wish i could replace with
something you have always wanted
think you like the way we haunted
Track Name: All That I Long For
read a poem about ancient trees
and how man cut them down
all it did was make me miss you
in september i'll make it right
come on pretty miss dear
you're all that i long for
i know it's a little bit weird
but you're all that i long for
read a psalm that said love is kind
king james bible in the hand
all it did was make me miss you
it was never part of the plan
you're all that i long for
Track Name: Dinner Art
she's working on her masterpieces
in her bedroom
when she comes out tonight
i say you feel alright
she says
hey man you have no idea
no one knows what i mean
dinner was kinda peculiar
if you'd stayed
you'd seen
poison in the cream
she says her art gives her life
i said only air can give you that
it's abstract
like pollack
she says
there's no way you can understand
