Pareidolia 04:07
pareidolia, with your head upon my lap on the buffalo grass the clouds are moving fast sippy, tell me what you see “maybe it’s a baby maybe it’s a cottonmouth swallowing its tail that one looks like lady guadalupe with an airplane in her hair it’s paradise the sun is just a glow, though shade your eyes there goes a phoenix with the last light” baby, it’s an omen let’s fly to puertecitos, where the five turns to sand i’ve seen them burning statues of the virgin by the roadside remember the time you snuck in through the bathroom window and waited for me there? hidden in the shower for an hour when i went to fill the tub i found you wrapped in linens like a ghost my heart froze, i fainted fold me a rose with that holiday napkin on the floor as payment for your fortunes i predicted you said “bite me, hell no you’re lucky i don’t fold you boy!” pareidolia with your head upon my lap on the buffalo grass the clouds are moving fast sippy, tell me what you see

Candle 03:43
innocence is a light beam you’re doing your thing with your arm out the window up highway nine when it’s too much to handle, burn me a candle when you don’t have a candle let me burn on your mind the song of the sirens caught up with me down wind my nose started bleeding by the second note heaven is a motel with a telephone seashell check out’s at eleven and don’t ask for more time did your eyes change? i remember them blue or were they always hazel? still the same face, with a line or two the same love i always knew i try not to call, but i think i'm being followed it's been about an hour or so i hate for you to hear me scared otherwise i'm well i guess you're still the first place i go did your eyes change? i remember them blue or were they always hazel? still the same face, with a line or two the same love i always knew

Second Sight 03:57
go down to logan town, look up ruby bates don't call the police, they won't help none two tons of turtle doves, from out of state just tell her i sent you, for the discount rate my man with the moving van's looking for a job to do he'll work for cheap, but he'll change you blue eye on the left hand side, hazel on the right he'll cut right through with the second sight but i work for free and love is all i need yes i work for free because love is all i need oh no, my swimming hole is full of turpentine it's raining mud from a bad sky i can help to clean this up, but i don't think i'm qualified we've got to find someone who can purify but if you have a need of which you can't describe a feeling of the third kind that's my specialty, that's easy we can draw up the plans of a new design and i work for free because love is all i need yes i work for free and love is all i need

Two Saviors 03:06
pinwheel, it's a bad deal falling upside down man, may came soon i hardly got to see you sue, how are you? slow dance, romance come on joe, it's your last chance and she won't catch you, man i’d bet you she won't catch you when you fall two saviors fighting over a soul a black eye leaves a black hole it seems the glass has cracked it's getting cold "hold me, hold me joe" new light, we had true sight falling inward out won't you recall, bonsai's on the dashboard? a warm refuge from a cold storm five eyes, those were bright nights even orion's got a soft side but he won't catch you, suzy i'd bet you he won't catch you when you fall two saviors fighting over a soul a black eye leaves a black hole it seems the glass has cracked, it's getting cold hold me, hold me "no, i need to be alone to know my home i know no home but hold me, hold me joe"

Two Moons 03:02
eyes behind eyes behind her eyes i know them from before maybe night skies golden maybe desert doors two moons rose today and we slept until eight in the morning mind behind mind behind my mind one seed in the soil maybe white apples glowing maybe apple cores two moons, full i'd say at least full enough for saying time behind time behind our time i've held her before maybe wildfires moaning maybe summer storms two moons show the way through the wood early morning

our dream daughter candle on the altar blue eye on the left your mother’s brown on the right you grew taller, taller than i am in white light from her breast i touched your hand who are you? who would you have been? blue jay stuck in my kitchen just cold water the shadows getting longer though bright nights hold my breath for silver on the rise i took all the blankets and slept out in the yard moon fall, i swear i saw gold behind the stars who are you? who would you have been? blue jay stuck in my kitchen fly away

Ham On White 02:07
save me half of that sandwich annie i haven't eaten since 1999 it's a miracle i'm alive please spare my life with ham on white tonight maybe you could let go of those potato chips you're hiding in your drawer what are you hiding for? i’d do anything actually anything i'd do anything, to the letter anything i'd do anything, anything i'd do anything faithfully, anything

fireflies to show me around every hole in new york town my eyes are getting old but i don’t mind the blue and gold the blue and gold up at hadley’s five and dime ten years of killing time with sam and outside joe black jack and egyptian rat kick-the-can and the biscuit dance our eyes are getting old but we don’t mind the blue and gold the blue and gold “race you down to the well” said sue “last one surrenders their family jewels, you’re quick, but hunter i am too” all the ways that she laughed made me want to make her laugh knock knock, no one’s home i saw the dog of a drifter, out on the sidewalk yesterday she said “hey sure i’m grateful, but how long do you think this walk will go?” i don’t know oh my jokes are getting old “race you down to the well” said sue “last one surrenders their family jewels, you’re quick, but hunter i am too”

eyes behind eyes behind her eyes i know them from before maybe night skies golden maybe desert doors two moons rose today and we slept until eight in the morning mind behind mind behind my mind one seed in the soil maybe white apples glowing maybe apple cores two moons, full i'd say at least full enough for saying time behind time behind our time i've held her before maybe wildfires moaning maybe summer storms two moons show the way through the wood early morning

Pocketknife 02:23
sparrows fight with a hawk in flight the dippers fade away slowly, sable turns to white she left her sleeping bag behind left her pocket knife a watermelon and a lime found a paper in my coat forgotten months ago she stole my lighter so i'll use the stove saw a murder of crows move by purple with the night while starlings murmured to silent types maybe august 29th if i make it through july thank god for coffee and apple pie

Halo Light 03:54
the halo light was humble our heather died but tomorrow i’ll buy roses nine hands high, little forest o jenny, why did you tell the horses? willow walls entwine you your mother called we spoke for seven hours i found the hole you climbed through but it’s too small to follow with the flowers though all our love remains so why do we feel sorrow? pain came in seasons departed our bodies left alone all our love will stay to live again tomorrow woke at dawn, reminded of secret songs by the warbler and the robin i swear i heard you humming in broken tongues through the curtain faces form on our ceiling a summer storm’s little arrows cross my chest the sparrows mourn your leaving with silent rises in their breasts though all our love remains so why do we feel sorrow? pain came in seasons departed our bodies left alone all our love will stay to live again tomorrow
