Another time, another place Each single moment is a still frame My brain fills in the blanks My brain fills in the blanks Seems like we’re moving A vace, a face, which is which Each single moment is an illusion My brain fills in the blanks My brain fills in the blanks Seems like we’re something Another drop, another sip Each single moment is a reaction My brain fills in the blanks My brain fills in the blanks Feels like we’re drowning My body’s water too

There’s a troll under the Golden Bridge Looking for a bone. His polarizing flaccid thoughts Bend and fold to the aging mold There’s a globe inside the loony-bin Looking for itself Its polarizing temperament A nucleus in its crowded cell A plane flies through the static folds To bring me back to Earth Finally I’m back at home The TV sifts through the snowy worth I left my breath in San Francisco Left it on the bus The fog moves in like groovy disco Easy come Easy go Finally I’m back at home Bend and fold to the aging mold

How many mentors does it take to change a lightbulb? No one ever writes that joke. You don’t want to feel poorly Of your brother, sister, hero, friend You don’t want to see What they really are Just stubborn hunks of flesh We’re animals, people We’re animals You come to an end Just like you had a beginning At one time you were nothing And you’ll be nothing again Well i feel like nothing right now I’m lying on my bed Like i was trying to smother myself Like failed evolution Because we’re animals, people We’re animals In the center of the Earth There is a forward forceful spin Time, life, love, pain, Hatred is And you are a forward forceful spin You’re a forward forceful spin And you’re an animal We’re animals We’re animals, people We’re animals

The sidewalk turned gray As dusk propelled Last hues to the cars All tightly packed The sunset chilled earth’s crust With tact My nose and ears Were numb and cracked Honey spoke with stubborn speech She spoke slowly on her feet And I’m awkward now A customary gift of opening up to me Now, sit like a good boy And go away ghost Go away ghost I was slightly drunk and inquisitive Asked if I could have a drag of her cigarette “You are not a man” she said “You’re an anxious fish caught on sacred land And I won’t let you off the hook Your sadness is grossing me out of this house Like a spirit who thinks I’m an heir of his spouse” Go away ghost Go away ghost I’m so preoccupied with death It’s why I don’t speak I need to listen I’m listening for your breath Listening for your heart Listening for the start of the end I’m so preoccupied with death I’m listening for your breath Listening for your heart Listening for the start of the end

I found myself across the land Across Pennsylvania The orange painted leaves on uwood Blocked the crossing ease And concrete sloths Lounged around You and I were a drifting breeze Down we head Down to the ground You got ahead of me Call the man down Gather up his flowers Call the man down Silent like a liar Blind like a bat Time is a wino’s cellar Tasting rack by rack And drunk we get Off love and hate You and i were a drifting breeze Down we head Down to the ground You got ahead of me Call the man down Gather up his flowers Call the man down
