Pantyhose 03:24
I sat at the corner sipping some tea Waiting for me to get ready to Go! Go! Go! down the street People to meet the first day was hard I made it seem easy. I made it seem easy. I made it seem easy. I made seem hard Hard made it seem easy, made it seam easy until I complain Plain playing for nothing, nothing is something always to Me! Me! Me! I run after me I run after hoping to Be! Be! Be! I aspire to be and inspire Serenity tea I need more to cover the bore Serenity tea I need more to cover the bore Serenity tea I need more to swallow her pantyhose Falling ! Falling ! Falling to the ground I have yet to ask her. Ask her. Ask her if she’s found A better outfit. Outfit out to suit her frown I saw ‘em in the bathroom stall I was there when she took em’ off I made it seem easy But It was so hard !

Irrationalities of the mind. Irrationalities. When the moon high up lights the sky with mystery No one seems to know why No one seems to care When a blanket of moodiness fills the air Reflections from a lover who made up his mind to late Reflections of a lover whom you love with all your might As you lay close tight, nestled in moonlight, warm and ready for sleep Irrational ambiguities affecting every human being Reflecting love of a full moon It’s halo drawing mystery Its language heightened by the sea as you lay weary Midnight breeze by the sea Go for a walk A walk outside Don’t let the demons hinder your stride Give back to the moon what she has given you What have I done to you What have you done to me Irrationalities Irrationalities of the sea Midnight

I don’t feel I have the time to see daylight From now on it’s me for me and you for you Days like these go by Days like these go by It makes me wonder why Days like these go by Thoughts fly through my vacant mind Soon you will learn Good times don’t come on their own My luck has run out Your luck will run out Find a way to be yourself I’m trying but I can’t believe Find a way to be yourself I’ll keep on trying Days like these go by Days like these go by It makes me wonder why Days like these go by Once you go and tell him You’ll never be forgiven Once you go and tell her It will never end

You fear of what you cannot hide You fear of what may come to life You stand with your binoculars Starring through your plastic window Definitely Lazy The process became painless And you fear of how you see yourself But what he says is valuable And you’re just there to supply his wealth Definitely Lazy The process became painless You pull from an empty well I see right into your window Every morning and every evening I see you across the alley and I avoid you It’s ludicrous for you to make a fist and cuss at all you ever wanted Open up and swallow down the road to hell is paved with good intentions You fear your possibilities Procrastination comes at ease The more you wait the more it hurts Like a rusty bike under the rain And hills to only break your courage Is this what you came here for? …You won’t be washing toilet bowls 20 years from now… You fear of what you cannot hide You fear of what may come to life But what he says is valuable and he will let you know you should give up Give up Definitely Lazy

I look away to find your shirt Cannot make up the colours blurred What’s the invisible between our souls What’s there that’s mine that I cannot hold

Red Car 04:22
He pulled up in his red car Dressed like a Mexican Going to Florida in his dark skin Crocodile boots white linen He’s never coming, never coming, never coming, never coming in. He came upon a dream. Nothing he said was real. Not even him She found herself with conviction and He was bound to his reasons and What she thought she saw was real He drove up in his red car dressed like a Mexican Going to Florida in his dark skin Crocodile boots white linen He’s never coming. never coming. never coming in She found herself with conviction and He was bound to his reasons and What she thought she saw was real He was bound to his reasons and She found herself with conviction and Oh how stubborn she is she’ll go down and wait for him

Couché au lit il lit un livre Un livre pour qu’il puisse s’endormir Et moi je gratte ma guitare pour attirer son attention Il me regarde, regard pesant et me fait signe de contentement Et soudain il se lève et se dirige vers le salon Guérit s’il te plait Guérit plus vite que ça Guérit s’il te plait ou tu passeras l’hiver sous les draps J’ai soif pour l’été J’ai soif pour l’été T’auras rien vu avant tes 30 ans T’as pas vécu jusqu’à 40 ans Il se malade ce soir Il se promène dans le couloir Il s’est enrobé de linge chaud Il va s’endormir bien Je lui envois des petits soldats Et je l’entoure de mes bon bras Il va guérir bien Guérit s’il te plait Guérit plus vite que ça

ManFather 04:54
ManFather what’s wrong? You grew angry and old My sisters, your daughters won’t hold on much long While you were sitting in the basement While you were rotting out Did you know that you could call Im not sure if that’s what I wanted after our falling out I guess I could’ve called But you grew angry and old Burried in the basement collecting stuff He purchased on credit remortage the house ManFather what’s wrong ? You grew angry and old My sisters your daughters won’t hold on much long Children do resent their yonder fathers I’ll hold on You seem much stronger then most around you So move on ManFather what’s wrong You grew angry and old Alone ManFather what’s wrong ? You grew angry and old My sisters your daughters We won’t hold that long Children do resent their yonder father You seamed so much different That night I slipped a little further down a hole And all I felt was empty didn’t like the way that I was told That You left way too early Didn’t like the way that I was told that you left way without calling Way too early without warning Man father what’s wrong/ you grew angry and old Your daughters are gone/ left them hanging alone Manfather so strong 30 years have gone/ You spoke a language of Love Left a wordly song/ Your story a mystery told Manfather so strong We won’t hold on that long

The desire was there I could see it when I walked in You’re not telling the truth What’s going on with you It’s nice that you’re making friends It’s nice yeah I understand But you’re not telling the truth What’s going on with you She’s intoxicated with you What are you going to do She’s doesn’t care if I’m there She don’t care if I’m there She don’t care you’re in her hair Ah what she’s done to you ! The desire was there I could see it when I walked in

We had built a castle A castle on a mountain A mountain by the river that turned into a lake And no one can get in our way We know they are watching We can hear them talking Like echoes of traffic in the rain Bluest eyes I fancy, dark mahogany We had built a castle Now a ship in battle We know they are watching We can hear them talking I will no longer wait in silence A dog’s obedience I will no longer wait in silence A dog’s obedience While you hold my heart in your hand Like you hold a kite in the wind Like you hold my heart in your hand We had built a castle now a ship in battle and No one can get in our way We know they are watching we can hear them talking like Echoes of traffic in the rain While you hold my heart in your hand Like you hold a kite
