Track Name: 11:11
I don't know where
I would go
without love
without love for life

I don't know where I would go
If I had no
thing to love

no I don't know where I would go
if I had no
thing to love

and yet I
find I'm
tired of my promises
I'm tired like my love affairs

I didn't know if I would choke
when faced with you again
You're not an enemy
just another me
from long ago

and yet I
find I'm
tired of complaining
belittling and shaming
who I used to be

I don't know how I would cope
without my winter coat
through beach blues
yellow sky hues
I need someone

to love
to love

I don't know who I would be
if I lost time
for the sea
I threw my watch out
because it just kept
ticking at me
Track Name: Lone Wolf
when the daylight had slipped away
I came out from my cave
and went to find the truth

but on that night the moon was red
and you shaved off your beard
and slipped into the crowd

the crowd of men
I didn’t see you again
the crowd of men
I didn’t see you again

and I know back in my old town
where the streets are ground
and the people they are birds

i do not need not anyone
I have my rising sun
to look forward to there

but out here
in the city there’s a needy air
and I can’t see
the sun because its behind stone
but I can see you
ohh your eyes of blue


oh oh hummingbird
hum a song for me

about what it means
to be free

I tried to go to yoga
I did one sun salute
but how this all was changing me
I just could not compute

I took walks in the country side
I looked up at the sky
and I could not help thinking
just how small
am I

how many times have I tried
not to be
a lone wolf
a lone wolf
a lone wolf
a lone wolf
Track Name: Does Terror Burn Calories?
does terror burn calories?
does anyone know?
though the campus I walked
it was cold
I thought it might snow

were the others
thinking the same as me?
I’m not alive
I’m in a strangers dream

I only had one request
I requested I could come next
but my request was denied

and I know
that there’s no going back
so I will go forward
so far forward that you won’t know
how I went so fast
and you so slow
so slow

does terror burn calories?
does anyone know?
though the campus I walked
I was short
and you were tall
Track Name: Honey Blue
my love is buying up another ounce
he’s running out of patience too
and he don’t wanna pay the power bill
but I know I love him still
I love him still

another night resigned to watching him
another night tipped down the drain
I wanna fly away, I wanna go
but I guess I’ll get him home
I’ll get him home

iris sits amongst her fellow plants
i’d marry her if i had the chance
i’d marry all the bees that sucked her too
i’d kindly ask them make me honey blue

the day has melted into evening now
the sky has given up on blue
my friends keep telling me that we should go
but I can’t do that to you
my honey blue

my love is buying up another ounce
i'm running out of patience too
and though his tired eyes are looking red
I know that they are blue
that they are blue

and I know I love him still
I love him still
yes I keep telling myself
I love him still

iris sits amongst her fellow plants
i’d marry her if i had the chance
i’d marry all the bees that sucked her too
i’d kindly ask them make me honey blue
i’d kindly ask them make me honey blue
Track Name: Golden Island
when the sun beats down
on its drum
when the day sits
down for rum

I will go, back to the golden islands
i will take, nothing but my time

is this paradise
looking back at me
the rain culling men
and the men culling trees

I will not, hoe your weeds
I will not, grow your seeds

I will row, back to the golden islands
I will know, no one but myself

'you don’t look the same'
said he when he heard my name
oh 'we don’t look alike
just because we share a name'
said I

what else can we do,
but to look out for the tune
that binds together lives
separated, by time?

no he didn’t look like anyone
that i had
ever seen
and she didn’t move like anyone
that I had
ever been
Track Name: Clouds of Milk
clouds are hanging in the sky
I always wonder why with you

and if life is just a lie
then i should just lie down with you

upon mountains
everything is white-blue
have you
climbed the hill today

watching out the window as
a flock of water flows by

in the morning when the dreams
still hang around from last night

upon mountains
everything is white-blue
have you
climbed the hill today

oh when zeus is singing I
can see him in my tea cup

clouds of milk, a cumulus
I think that we should go up

to the mountains
where everything is white-blue
have you
had your pill today
Track Name: Mud
like mud, like mud
I wanna live, like mud
waiting on love, like mud
sleep in a new place each night
like mud

we are owned by love
owned by the same killing drug
swam to the shore, like mud
I wanna feel the tug

but it’s only gonna drag you under
it’s only gonna drown you
oh it’s only gonna give you wonder
and a muse

mud
mud

like mud, like mud
I wanna live, like mud
run from the law, like mud
waiting on love, like mud

but it’s only gonna drag you under
it’s only gonna drown you
it’s only gonna give you thunder
when you wanted lightening
oh it’s only gonna take your teeth out
when you take a bite
oh it’s only gonna leave you hungry at night

mud
mud

like mud, like mud
I wanna live, like mud
waiting on love, like mud
sleep in a new place each night
like mud
Track Name: Coriander
coriander was your only daughter
holding the leg of a duck
march 13th was malting season
white feathers covered us

after all the rain had fallen
and the pond had overflowed
coriander started growing
where she’d never before grown

out of the cracks in the road
out of the patches of snow
out of the house that we all called home

i remember summer brittle
finding horses on our way
on a hill side when the sun beams
were hitting on the hay

coriander went to seed then
and I picked off all her heads
to put in jars on the windowsill
scatter in the garden beds

into the patches of snow
into the cracks in the road
into the house that we all called home

into the patches of snow
into the cracks in the road
into the house that we all call home
