Track Name: So You Think You Can Dance.
So You Think You Can Dance...
In a trance in the back of a bar
Wonder where you are
When you go to bed and dream of
Tulips Tulips Tulips Two Lips
And you do it again
In the heart of a man
And you wonder why
You can't see him again
Cause you crossed the red tape
Yeah, you broke that bind
Til he was skinned and milked
And beaten from the vine
And If I never see you again!!
I don't want to know!!
And if I ever feel the fever again!!
I'm hoping for a one man show!!

So You Think You Can Dance...
But I don't think you can
I won't even pretend
To know...
It's a pawn-it's a pit
It's a birthday cake
But I think it's a risk
That we have to take
Soaked in strangeness
Longing out loud
For the sprites to save us
Or the Angels of Anyhow
If I never see you again!!
I don't want to know!!!
If I ever feel the fever again!!
I'm hoping for a one man show!!
So You Think You Can Dance.
Track Name: I Miss The Blackboards
I miss the blackboards
I miss the spots
I miss the map of stains
Ever since the hard water got soft

I miss the carpets
I miss the ugly silver tape
I miss the ceiling patterns
When asbestos really tasted great

I miss the daydreaming
That took place between the cracks
Of classic pasty cinder blocks
That always seemed to have my back

I miss the lights going out
In 4th grade science class
An amoeba never looked so good
Until I saw it behind the gauze of film grain n' dust


I miss the teachers
And even the kid who ate my lunch
My mother raised to be kind (of course)
My dad taught me how to throw a punch

I miss the blackboards
I miss the spots
I miss the map of stains
I miss the smell of chalk

Mysterious geography
Generations of use
I miss the blackboards
Almost as much as I miss...
Well...
Track Name: Sometimes It Just Goes
Where will we go?
(After the rainfall)
Over the snow
Waiting up for you
But you don't go
It's plain for me
I just didn't know

And ya simply can't leave
Cause I've never even seen ya sneeze
Never seen ya so vulnerable before (and beautiful)
And see I'm pretty weak at the knees
So you'll have to carry me
On out that door

Dissolve-after the window
Blew in with the snow
Waiting-holding on for just a kiss

I'll admit it sometimes your eyes they shine
Like a vanity mirror for mine
But the smell of your farmhouse sty
Releases pieces of my corn-fed mind
By oddity or design
The guitar plucks us out of time

Dissolve-after the window
Blew in with the snow
Waiting-holding on for just a kiss

Novelty just annoys you
Strange, it never used to
Our conversations seem like a chore to you
Strange, they used to move you
They used to include you

Well I guess it's not so strange at all
You are charmed-disarmed until you are resentful

Strange how time made you hard, made you soft
Squeezed your heart, worked your skin
Changed your mind and even your hair
Took the edge and made it fair
When it's not so fair at all
Sometimes it just goes to show you up
Track Name: Something I Forgot To Say
Something about NATO or Isis
How must I occupy this long crisis
Join a gym-grant my body some kindness
Or alcohol or basic silence
Find a girl I'll be nice with
Take my heart out-undo the vise grip
We can talk-we can joke about the mind slip
We can do that if you like it

But baby I
I'm a real nice guy
Might as well tell a soul
As loving as you

Redress he balance 'tween hungry and full
Still Horton hears a whole other world
And you don't miss a lazy Sunday until it's gone
Still ya gotta pull at your own overheard for a stab at oxygen

I know you got a heart
Now go and fix that bed sheet
And be sure to grab your wax chin
Bobbing in the stemless wine glass
Resistance to change always happens so fast
Track Name: Here Comes The Wind
It's all wet behind my face
You hold your nose and jump in
And head off to your happy place
Oh no here comes the wind

So you're taken well off
The course or corral you've been
Painstakingly planning out
It's painful but the stage
Has been set now

You find yourself out on the thrust
The semicolon helps you to
Find the thread or simply adjust
Baby there's no need to rush

In the kitchen
They caught him transfixed
Just starting at the backsplash
They tried to persuade him back in
But he just never came back
It's painful but the stage
Has been set now

You find yourself out on the thrust
The semicolon helps you to
Find the thread or simply adjust
But baby there's no need to rush

Still here comes the wind
Tho I know it's not what you wanted/
Unload the the lead
Float from yer head
And you'll be on it
So try not vomit

And keep on keepin' on
Keep on keepin' on
Track Name: Become
There's a colossal world
Inside of my head
That holds all the negative space

Places you've been
Persons you've dreamed
And loves that failed to take place

A hotel dream from a high school daze
Places I have never known
Mystery-Eleven Sixteen
Where do you go when you go?

Thru the slipstream
Of the moment
The television is left on

How many people
Have you costumed
Before I kissed you alone?

Throw out those vagrant eyes
Let's giddy up a new disguise
To fool all those suckers we knew

A can of warm beer
Sits on my bookshelf
I guess I saved it for you

What you've become

You've become
Track Name: Hot Ice
Well she rubs exotic cremes
All over her skin
Strange goo from jars so unlabeled
And she grips my shoulders
And she sucks my breath in
And I clench up cause I can never be present
Always trying to poke and prod the current moment

Still she curls her toes
And sits on my chest
Wearing a long black night shirt
That smells of a hard won rest

She mounts me and picks up the glass
Each ice cube slides into her mouth
Like it's a warm bath

And her mouth
Is full of hot ice
And it feels
It feels so very nice
And her mouth
Is full of hot ice
And it’s right
And she’s right in front of my life

So I’ve been breeched
My lines have been lost
And found briefly in the pit
Of her golden palms

Her head bobs
Her eyes turn to stone
They slice open my chest
And take the rest of the nest on home

Still she curls her toes
And sits on my chest
Wearing a long black night shirt
That smells of a long time rest

She mounts me and picks up the glass
Each ice cube slides into her mouth
Like it's a warm bath

And her mouth
Is full of hot ice
And it feels
It feels so very nice
And her mouth
Is full of hot ice
And it’s right
And she’s right in front of my life

And her mouth
Is full of hot ice
And it feels
It feels so very nice
And her mouth
Is full of hot ice now
And it’s right
And we see where the night
