1. DANCE OF THE MANATEE

Take a little dive into the shallow and spy, what do you see?
I see the tortoise and the hare in a rat-race,
And it fits like a glove under my sleeve,
Just wait till then.
Their heads are the heaviest in operation,
He has still not lost imagination.
You can hear him mouth the whole ending,
Just wait till then.

We marys had ourselves a ball,
Oh, yes we did.
We marys had ourselves a ball,
I must admit.

Hang us those limbs hold no virtue.
Those told to hold: Project on my cue;

Until we fall.

Whether a he or a she, put your mouth where your money is.
Are the birds of a feather that clever?
If I knew I'd keep locks; that's a given,
Just wait till then.
Their heads cast shadows like skyscrapers,
Still small enough to fit up their asses,
To put it all into perspective with definition.

We marys had ourselves a ball,
Oh, yes we did.
We marys had ourselves a ball,
I must admit.

Hang us, those limbs hold no virtue.
Those told to hold: Project on my cue.

Oh, take a gander the bigger they are the harder they fall.
Oh, take a gander the bigger they are the harder they fall.

Not needy you'll see, not needy,
And I come with open arms over trees.
Not needy you'll see, not needy you'll see, not needy,
And I come with open arms over trees.

Listen to proven guarantees while you're rollin' up your sleeves,
Beatin' on the chest.
But we can keep it in a jar when it's comin' cats and dogs for days.
We marys had ourselves a ball and I guarantee,
That what they've done for you,
(What they've done... (for me) they've done for me, they've done for me.



2. KYLA CRIES COLOGNE

Let me introduce you to a pair that strikes crude oil, but I see pyrite.
It is the same old pattern - the goose that feeds the gander.
They choose to act but not I.

Planting the seeds you've sown is easier than growing the rows
Let's go outside and it might restore us.
More for the fire that fights for the freeze now mechanical.

So the the pair proceeded
Another pulse defeated - can't say that I am surprised.
"It is the fly trap's color that caused the fall into her"
What is the shade that you saw?
Planting the seeds you've sown is easier than growing the rows
Let's go outside and it might restore us, oh
More for the fire that fights for the freeze now mechanical.

Bound by the salt not your earth, the hat mocks the rabbit while the bee stings the shark.
Stop the start, these are my disguises.

Planting the seeds you've sown is easier than growing the rows
Let's go outside and it might restore us, oh
More for the fire that fights for the freeze now
Let's go outside and it might restore us
More for the fire that fights for the freeze, mechanical



3. VICE/VERSA

Mountains of molehills,
a grapevine in my ear.
Spots on the tiger while the townspeople gather to hear,
while the nests in my hands starve for rest.
Sticklers for cheap fun,
you oughta be ashamed to trade in your heirlooms.
For black market all day parades,
for a grand prize a slap in the face for you

Bold faced type covers your text,
it must have been winter.

Still frame, no dice.
Where do you get your evidence?
Move now, stay still,
it takes a luminescent hue.
The wood, the crest that's weaved outside your vest.
Still frame, no dice.

Loons light the skyline while you sleep on concrete with both your eyes open.
I just kept pullin' on both your feet.
Someday together we'll breathe on mountains of molehills
4. Wife, The Kids, And the White Picket Fence



5. APRIL FOOLS AND EGGMEN

Rest assured they're weighing words in sympathetic ink,
And they don't waste their time suspending disbelief,
They face the facts with thinking caps,
They map out and display,
But that's not the only way,

Common sense won't pay the rent and doesn't grow on trees,
But splitting hairs can get you anything you need,
Who would have thought connecting dots might get you to the point,
But charity is a rarity almost as much as modesty,

Take the bait and save however much it takes,
Before you've made your wish however much it takes,

Rest assured they're weighing words in sympathetic ink,
And I don't waste my time suspending disbelief,
Masterminds want bottom lines to map out and display,
If I have every bit of faith,
I won't be turning in my grave,

Take the bait and save however much it takes,
Before you've made your wish however much it takes,

Take your own advice before you take a side,
Run for middle ground,

Take the bait and save however long it takes,
Before you've made your wish however much it takes,
Before you lie in bed, however long it takes.



6. SEAFARER'S KNOT

Lucky are the leaves of the clover.
She's diggin' for chemistry with the butcher's tools.
Shifty are the eyes of the gambler
He's making his tricks his trade
And a job well done.

Through the motions waving wishes to your confidence and eloquence.

He's turning a-green from these envious glorious things.
Applied ambitious faith that can keep us all safe.
Invoking a blue that's meant for us too.
What small amazing things we will turn to rain.

Lucky is a deer in the headlights.
Those two are as thick as thieves, not a penny more.
Shaky on the hands of the gun shy
He'd rather give up the ghost than take fight.

Through the motions waving wishes to your confidence and eloquence.

He's turning a-green from these envious glorious things.
Applied ambitious faith that can keep us all safe.
Invoking a blue that's meant for us too.
What small amazing things we will turn to rain.

Gather 'round, hold your glasses up high.
Drink to love while we wait for high tide.
Keep it short, keep it brief,
You have my word.
Gather round while we wait for high tide

He is turning a-green from these envious glorious things.
Applied ambitious faith that can keep us all safe.
Your spots,
Your seeds,
Like fur,
We're all,
A mess,
As though, we all have a another..



7. WOLF DESCENDS UPON THE SPANISH SAHARA

If you're keeping score then you're bound to win,
A birds eye view of a burning bridge,
You've come through ghost towns set on pause,
Hoping your risk was worth a cause,

Whoa, sound off the false alarm, whoa

But I'll make my own colleague from wood and from ivory,
And reap the rewards of proximity,
I'll assemble my equal from what I lack and require,
And gather what's left unaccompanied.

It smells like disaster,
It looks like a trap,
So go by the wayside,
And never look back.

If you could spare me forty winks,
While you cry wolf and I count sheep,
What good are ghosts in Kevlar vests,
With backbones like a jellyfish?

Whoa, stomp on your land again, whoa

But I'll make my own colleague from wood and from ivory,
And reap the rewards of proximity,
I'll assemble my equal from what I lack and require,
And gather what's left unaccompanied.

It smells like disaster,
It looks like a trap,
So go by the wayside,
And never look back,

If you are keeping score then you are bound to win,
A ring side seat at the main event,
Whoa, stomp on your land again, whoa

It smells like disaster,
It looks like a trap,
So go by the wayside,
And never look back.

It smells like disaster,
Thank God I can smell,
And go by the wayside,
I'll never look back.



8. WALLS OF JERICHO

What splendidly weaved from an atom bomb,
Retrieved from a teleprompt,
Practical, you are not,
Break the ice with a cotton swab,
A fever that cools us all,
Handshake's a contact sport,

No one was waiting to throw out the pilot,
We'll float on the back of the winds that you send us,

Another tomorrow,
Shedding the shade we made yesterday,
Disguised as the lightning,
Dissolving all of the thunder,
Then appeasing a monster under the acrylic skies,
Another tomorrow,

So grab my hand here comes the crash,
I live for the strong impact that renders both our airbags,
Takes very letter you send,
Don't fold if you're made to bend,
Rekindle the feud again,

No one was waiting to throw out the pilot,
We'll float on the back of the winds that you send us,

Another tomorrow,
Shedding the shade we made yesterday,
Disguised as the lightning,
Dissolving all of the thunder,
Then appeasing a monster under the acrylic skies,
Another tomorrow,

Did you recognize your next door neighbor today,

String up your harp,
Play like today will last five minutes,
This won't take long,
Sing us a song that stops the silence,

Another tomorrow,
Shedding the shade we made yesterday,
Disguised as the lightning,
Dissolving all of the thunder,
Then appeasing a monster under the acrylic sky,
Another tomorrow.



9. TALL TALES TASTE LIEK SOUR GRAPES

Too much patience,
No resistance.
Within shouting distance,
You can hear a blind man's bluff,
Dragging names through the mud and still biting his tongue.
The devil's in the air and I'm spitting out prayers,
While the rubbernecks all get their fill.

Tell me, tell me a story,
Tell me not to worry, or pick up the phone.
So turning, turning a deaf ear,
So that I don't hear them throwing stones.

Too much hogwash,
Not enough hearsay
Always made the front page,
You could use a fine tooth comb.
To get a word from the wise,
Would be a welcome surprise.
Keep an ear to the ground so to drown out the sound,
The dead air is what made me whole.

Tell me, tell me a story,
Tell me not to worry, or pick up the phone,
So turning, turning a deaf ear,
So that I don't hear them throwing stone,

These walls don't talk,
Even when somebody knocks,
These walls don't stand,
For anyone else but themselves,
These walls don't fall,
Even when gravity's failing us all,

Tell me, tell me a story.
Tell me not to worry, or pick up the phone.
So turning, turning a deaf ear,
So that I don't hear them throwing stones.

Hey! Hey! HEY!



10. UPDATE BRIGADE

Glow but don't shine
A fuse for a blueprint, devices my hands built.
For, for these roads want the rain and my raincoat,
Drown in a flash flood.

For we are alive.

Give, given air, not used to alfresco
Does the sun know

Today I forgot the zeros and ones?
Told you to conquer the rush
Sunday I remembered paper beats rock.
Reached a mile high if I reached a foot.

Lep, leopard skin is not above or beyond him
No more a prince than a frog is.
For, for these roads should not have shed for a witness
Taken bites to avenge us.

For we are alive.

Give, given air and not used to alfresco.
Does the sun know

Today I forgot the zeros and ones
Told you to conquer the rush
Sunday I remembered paper beats rock.
Reached a mile high if I reached a foot.

Oh, I'm figuring out the one thing he's not
Is above and beyond
And no one's packing up, taking off
Or waving goodbye
For we are alive

Today I forgot the zeros and ones
Told you to conquer the rush
Sunday I remembered paper beats rock.
Reached a mile high if I reached a foot.



11. (WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS) SAY WHEN

The sideways man walks on his hands
Can't keep from dragging his feet and
When he tries
I try

They twist his arms to get a headstart
Tycoons love hitting the jackpot
To get back what they've lost
He'd have to raise the bar

The desert heat left us all in the dark
buried the sun so I carried the torch
They're head over heels with eyes on the prize
I settled for less and its more than enough
Just say when

Truth be told
I'd rather be sold
than juggle stepping stones
But when he tries
I try

They all take part to get a headstart
Big wigs love hiting the jackpot
Taking all the cheapshots
The referee was wrong

The way they left us all in the dark
They buried the sun, so I carried the torch
The way they have their eyes on the prize
I settled for less and it's more than enough
Just say when

The way the left us all in the dark
The buried the sun, so I carried the torch
The way they have their eyes on the prize
I settled for less and it's more than enough
The way the left us all in the dark
Head over heels, but it's never enough
Just say when
