House of Hay 04:17
God looked misplaced / hid the key / that I needed to engage Lost in thought / couldn’t wait / saved the one but not the ace So far we’re still around / and every little way we try to choose / keeps tearing the ship apart All the mental planes we threw away / are now playing a crucial part So long is all we’ve got / Every third day we had to choose / like we’re making a house of hay__________ / like we’re making a house of hay God’s bar of space seperates all the words we like to see Blackened lungs sweet embrace / save the ace and drop the spade Converged on crowded sound / every single thing we tried to prove / keeps filling the void with doubt This tome is all we’ve got / every new day we try to use / like we’re making a house of hay__________ / like we’re making a house of hay Where you working now / downtown city / all your dreams were left on that highway Ragged empty breath the throat felt gritty / whatcha driving in it’s new car Friday There’s the pusher man / he seems so greedy/ what your givin’ up won’t be easy
2.
We should be president of the free / you’re not so sure that you’d agree / no hands raised up we need your votes / this is the part I love the most Trees should be held over the crude / they’re not so sure that they’d approve / no hands raised up we need your vote / let’s break this hold and float the boat / no hands raised up we need your hope / this is the part I love the most You oughtta’ vote for we / you wanna roll with me / you oughtta’ vote for we Do our dreams just live in the trees / scanned faxed and carbon copied / tossed about like leaves in the trees / shoved masterpiece / in equilibrium Now every future has been seen / this circle surrounds mystery / one man nailed up won’t save our souls / when this religions built with gold / yeah it’s bought and sold / must we always fight and die to be free / breed to breath repeat history / trained to seed this false bravery / this cycle is the ministry You oughtta’ vote for we / you wanna roll with me / you oughtta’ vote for we
3.
Auction 04:04
The days are top to bottom numbered / for all to see / hey what’s the problem this time / can you see what it has to be / is it money / is it fame / are they one in the same / can we be up for auction Sell yourself and I’ll pay you what I got / every war fought to save you is already lost / ‘cause ain’t nothing easier than selling yourself / everybody in this whole damn place would look pretty god damn good on a shelf God damn it / god damned this / god damned every god damn thing / god damn it The days we’ve lived are over / and tomorrow hasn’t come / this place is not worth ruining / seems its almost been done / all the money and all the faith / they share the same space / could we be up for auction Sell yourself and I’ll pay you what I got / every war fought to save you is already lost / ‘cause ain’t nothing easier than selling yourself / everybody in this whole damn place would look pretty god damn good on a shelf God damn it / god damned this / god damned every god damn thing / god damn it

When The Day's Done (free) 03:18
When the days done / please see this light / here in happy home / here in happy life/ when the days done try and be right here / waiting for ‘amorrow so I can go on Now the days done / rise the late yeast / sparkle fading sun / in every eye that you meet / when your time comes / try and be right here / waiting for ‘amorrow so I can go on / now your ocean grows / you strive like a fist / shoot like you missed this so I can go on Some say I’ll show you how to live life / break hearts , get a job and buy wine / some say it’s better on the shoreline / just pray / and everything will be allright When the days done you can go home / now your times come / you can go on / when the time comes try and be right here / waiting for ‘amorrow so I can go on / now your ocean grows / strive like a fist / shoot like you missed this so I can go on This day could be the end of all time / first spark was covered up with sunshine / some wage a battle from the sideline / displayed in every way to when this fight I say float in that ocean that you’ve grown / today climbing up that mountain that you’ve formed / it’s okay to float in that ocean that you’ve grown / today climbing up that mountain that you’ve formed
5.
We Stream 03:35
I’m not very good at / playing in for keeps / I’ll stop taking risks like that / riding bikes up hills that steep / holding on is holding out / falling asleep / people sometimes seem patient / then breath begin to see Slow hand reaches out and grabs me with its claws / instead of pulling people’s britches of their heads / we stream floating in the this cosmic seismonaught / we stream we stream / we stream we stream I’m not very good at pushing on those horns that beep (beep beep beep) / now start taking cabs to work / something’s coming after me / holding out is owing up / flashing pastures much / I’m camped out in back of town / waiting to get down Slow hand reaches out and grabs me with its laws / instead of pulling people’s britches of their heads / we stream floating in the this cosmic seismonaught / we stream we stream / we stream we stream
6.
Cult Hero 03:19
Inside the world of a cult hero / starring the next big thing / ignoring hauling towing toughness / women’s inhibitions are exposed Who let it fly / to will the new ice age yeah / I’m eagerly awaiting the opening of deep heart / you for quick relief A wind that doesn’t blow is a mighty wind / seems you’ve gotten away with this / the last potential dilemma Who let it fly / to will the new ice age yeah / I’m eagerly awaiting the opening of deep heart / you for quick relief Inside the world of a cult hero / starring the next big scene / every hope filled with disbelief / every word a broken dream Who let it fly / to will the new ice age yeah / continually berating the edifice of an oil king / you for quick relief
7.
Why oh Why 02:34
Why oh why could I never toe the line / let’s change the way we’re living every day / when we’re all dolled up it’s just water in the tub / going down the drain anyway This could be the drying of the stream / a perfect first vision of the lord / if the colors scream “hey I’m not what I seem / even religions can’t be saved Where oh where has all the dreamin’ gone / its left this place for good / never to return / when we’re all fed up with the bruises in the cut / we’ll be praying for the end everyday When will we believe in what we see / the storm has gotten stronger everyday / when the banks give up and technology ‘s a bust / no zeroes and ones can save the day Why oh why does this sleeping giant lie / the past was always promised but that end did not occur / if the bullet is love then I’d shoot it like a gun / while all of the coffins fill their graves
8.
Guns & Gold 03:30
I walk on tattered feet / pretending to get old / we are a column / in a sea of rows / timelessness is easier / than searching for a road / all this is nothingness / breathed out long ago Can we grow slowly / breathing in every breath Leave that to other beasts / like meat outside their homes / can you admire the things you can’t behold / restlessness is squeezing me / I demand to be let go / if I could just forget / everything I know I know you know it but you said it didn’t matter / how can you just forget everything that’s happened / give up your guns and gold if freedom’s what your after / I know you know it but you said said said it didn’t matter I came with planted trees / soldiers in a row / I’ve had attitude towards f*cked up youth before / all your faith is meaningless when action is disowned / we are an old dispute dividing up your bones Can we grow slowly / breathing in every breath I know you know it but you said it didn’t matter / how can you just forget everything that’s happened / give up your guns and gold if freedom’s what your after / I know you know it but you said said said it didn’t matter
9.
Time like the wind is never getting caught in could have been / there is no start / mind like the sea is floating up and overflowing me / there is not start / thought like this spark is lighting up when all else has gone dark / there is no start / there is no end Slow down and lay back / breathe just the same / nothing’s changing / what it is it always is / no one’s ever changing anything So self important / when every word I say / I’m saying to myself / action’s not intent / when every game I play / I’m playing with myself / armed to the teeth / well this isn’t me / like a thief who stole your soul / every life is a goal wrapped into goal / wrapped into a goal Heart like this art is lighting up when all else has gone dark / there is no start / there is no / mind like this tree is growing up and turning green with me / there is not start / there is no end Slow down and lay back / breathe just the same / nothing’s changing / what it is it always is / no one’s ever changing anything / now your thoughts can change everything
10.
Time is just a human line / managed with sad design / life becomes a stepped out line / measured by this device / walk home for once with head up / can we regress / let’s invest in this magic moment / in this mighty mountain sound The tides are all tied to your emotion / the moon is shining in your belly / our divide takes up too much damn ocean / like days wasted in reverie If you believe in the written word or the music that floats through the air / give in to its sweet caress / lest time will shorten the breath / what you see is a twisted knot / tied in a place that time forgot / locked link is a twisting lane / tying highways to the brain When the sky realized it could decide / the mood’s half empty don’t you try and deny it / I’ll take smoke from this pile of ashes / when we’re drinking our air out of glasses Time time / time time Time is just a human lie managed with this disguise / mind is not the borderline measuring this divide / this divide
