Messenger of All’s Right The avalanche took me by surprise This time it was visible Taller than the trees Reaching the sky it nearly buried me But I’ve been delivered by a dead man’s voice Like a messenger of all’s right I’ve seen you live through the darkest of days Alive but a little less and hanging off your cigarette And hiding under pills Your brilliance will decay Unless delivered by a dead man’s voice Like a messenger of all’s right When the sun doesn’t shine for days When there’s a slave behind my eyes When the usual isn’t enough And the voices rage until I hate again There is one who would pull me out…of the rumble The rumble would decay when the needle hit the groove and built the silence The silence will decay when the needle left the groove to build the rumble The avalanche took me by surprise The next time I may not be as fortunate It’s so hard to clear my head My days of life go racing by and I won’t even use them Unless delivered by a dead man’s voice Like a messenger of all’s right I’ve been delivered by a messenger Refrain~ There is one who would pull me out…

Warjazz 05:16
WarJazz I’m getting bigger Than the armies that are outside I’ve got plans that suffocate And I don’t really care I feel like WarJazz With a nod to the none ‘Cause everyone pulls and spins together Into the burn, together all alone I need a space surrounded by dozens of windows And clear far-off warnings So I can go wide and long Together all alone I can’t recognize the randomness The blurry syncopated fits Is their purpose in chaotic hits that move in and out of time? There’s WarJazz in the smoky halls It calls for me to go To an alley joint of cocktail haze In random muffled tones Refrain~ Gone away Once it’s been had it’s never quite the same Struggle to remember, it’s never quite the same Once it’s been had, it’s never… I pull the trigger ‘Cause I’m jumping in and out of my skin Insides feel like trouble Everything’s starting to spin I’ve got days and days where I hesitate I’ll never get them back I used to move ahead of the sun But now my sun burns back Refrain~

Empyrean Views They found the steppe and sang its song Some settled in or just moved along In isles between the markers they go On the left rose a sign that the end was near It said, “Repent or burn and thank God it’s HERE! 2001 resurrected dead on planet Jupiter! Everyone’s purchased a place to go With the clearest view and the bargain low The buildings end here where the walls crumble down They usher in the isles of stones Between the bones and places they’ve travelled The train ignites across the view The faces blur and all of you Rocket by rocket by with places to go Aeronautic distant diamonds burst Like morning stellar universe Leaving little scars in the great blue sky Refrain~ Find your way; one step further, one step further Walking into the sun Where the day had begun they moved past the routine and fear Along a coast of never knowing Well, have they fallen off the edge of the world? Or did the sea swell up to swat every one of them away? There’s a longing in those hearts that calls It calls for a destination We call to the destination It calls for a destination Engage for the destination The sky is a changing window A firmament that cuts off empyrean views Of light and wheels of fire The Sun and Moon and Stars are markers Finding our way through impermanence And all they have is one step further Finding a way, our way Refrain~ Find your way; one step further, one step further Everyone’s purchased a place to go With the clearest view and the bargain low The buildings end here where the walls crumble down They usher in the isles of stones Between bones and places they’ve travelled The places they’ve gone, that we’ve been, and we’ll go

Different Days Well, I’m in hiding, but not too far Where time gets bent into the bar The same old drink, lit by waves, on different days The familiar chords bounce off the walls In C’s and D’s and E’s Well I’ve been here before to spend my different ways On different days I’m in hiding The volume jumbles and fights for more Like swirls of buzzing bees I can’t hear the stories in the cracks of the day, no Little bursts of language dissipate The stories try to hang on There’s nothing here that hasn’t been said, I’m running dry It’s the moves you never make inside It’s the moves you never make in time See the bottom rising See the bottom rising I’m buried in a cycle that I notice in my brain The repeating seems unstoppable Even when I change I forget everything I remember In denial I am denied My head feels like swarming and checking off boxes for days and days and days On different days I’m in hiding Refrain~ You move into the storm, it pulls you where you’re going I’m looking up through the layers There’s a tumbling sky that’s got to land I’m covered in its pooling measures No matter where I run, no matter were I stand Can’t let go When they run away I stay awake I stay awake on different days When they run away I stay awake I stay awake through different days The different days are so out from the rest I can’t recognize the time Don’t pull your hat down or go around ‘Cause it’s everything in everything and then some You move into the storm, it pulls you where you’re going Now I’m back in the ballroom dancing the buck-and-wing I’ve been tapping solo for so long My limbs are flying but I’m not rising to any degree ‘Cause I’m just spinning, wasted movement and energy On different days I’m in hiding Refrain~

Carried Home 05:10
Carried Home Her eyes are full of storm It’s a constant distraction she’s working on She’s a flower in need of rain Shame though the water will choke her She’s a flower of rain, that’s all His eyes are wide in fear His room’s alive with angels that wrestle with what brought him here He’s a river with nowhere to flow alone Soon the current will take him Soon the water will rise And soon it carries them home Always circles around itself Blooming, returning, to itself Back and forth it never ends When anything is everything again We’re carried home We’re carried to the sea We’re carried home Do I need a reason to crash into the sea Do I really need to let the tide carry me into the sun Down into space is a beautiful dream Weightless set apart drifting past gravity And the soon the water will rise We’re carried home And soon it carries them home Refrain~ We’re carried to the sea We’re carried home in stormy eyes with strangers at our sides by the tide

Once I Get Mine Pushing, pushing ‘til I blur the line Doesn’t matter what you get once I’ve got mine Taking, taking ‘til I’ve had my fill If you don’t grab what’s left my friend You know I will It doesn’t matter what you get It doesn’t matter what you get I’ve been taking before you take away It doesn’t matter what you get Once I’ve got mine I’m moving step by step You feel me moving past When I take my place You know I won’t be last Hey, piece by piece I’m building mine Glory be for me Is your decline Glory be for me Pushing everybody and taking everything I’m pushing everybody and taking everything No regrets is how I sleep at night Refrain~ I can hear your body I can read your face as well You can shine your suit But you can’t hide the sell Your biggest day It isn’t mine So sorry Words, washing over me Exploding in my head Washing over me It isn’t what you get Words, words Tangled in my head Give, give it isn’t you! Once I get mine Once I get mine You can have it all, and take it all, ???? Once I get mine Refrain~

Sound of Bees Their words take on the sound of bees Drawing my attention But I don’t want them They will sting When I was younger I’d make and lose friends It was so much easier But now that I’m older The loss of my loved ones Has left me so unhappy And left me with these lonely little lines They are the reason I’m running They are the voices that I’ve heard I’ve heard, I’ve heard And they all come home with me Lonely little lines… The people that stare at me Think that I’m dirty and not good enough to breathe But they don’t even know me And all they can show me Is they’re not smart enough to see, to see me Refrain~ In my lonely little lines Such lonely little lines The bees have their wishes like steely little kisses And all I do is listen to be loved I’ve opened up my wrist Deep enough for the voice to seep out of my life So I’m free, I’m free Free to live, free to live Opened up my heart Just enough for some light To shine back in my life So I’m free, I’m free Free to love, free to love Not to be able To make people happy Well it, it clouds my everything The bees have their wishes with their steely little kisses They take my pain away The bees have their wishes with their butterfly kisses They take my pain away Everything’s gone Everything’s wrong I’ll hide away All I can hear is what’s wrong They are the reason I’m running They are the voices that I’ve heard And they all come home with me Their voice takes on Their voice takes on Their voice takes on Their voice takes on the sound of bees All I want is all gone All I hear is so wrong All I want is all gone All I hear is bees

All This Time We’re Given Fought in wars, driven dynamite Had a rough time with the pain last night My mind is a sun setting sun Cruel memory don’t let me down What’s it like outside? Everything I own is on my back All I have is in a line on the sill In a line all the time I don’t know if I know I know I don’t remember Orange southern church Yellow is the lamb in orbit ‘round my head Time battle time, cruel gravity don’t let me fall What’s it like outside? What am I supposed to do? Lost in chemicals Never thought I’d see this day Now what’s to become of me? I know this face these hands this brow these lips They used to kiss I really can’t decide if they’re mine Please remind me I speak in trails my history fails And all I ever was is gone Please remind me Refrain~ All this time we’re given With nothing left to show All this space to live in With nowhere else to go No one wants to see me There’s nothing left to go home to Nothing at all to keep me And they say the end is beautiful How did my life come to this? Thought the end would never find me So hold my hand as I slip away If the end of pain is pain Then we should all go quietly How did my life come to this? What am I supposed to do? Lost in chemicals Never thought I’d see this day Now what’s to come of me? And my life? Refrain~ I’ve got nowhere to go Although we’re given Back to the oak and vein The light we lived in Will shine on us again Won’t you shine on us again Shine on us Shine on us Won’t you shine on us again?

Vanishing Sun I’m sifting through the wreckage Of these miserable days Filled my lungs with stone My heart’s already gone I want to wake up I need to find myself dead What difference did I make? So help me disappear Ghost you all the way Language is the hammer we’re beneath What an empty life Fucking kill me now What a lonely life Fucking kill me now Cue an epic horizon Start with a vanishing sun Swallowed, hornets Now anger is the root of his spree Set the room ablaze Lighted like the 4th of July Spit out, daggers now Ghost you all the way Language is the hammer we’re beneath Refrain~ Stare into the eyes of hate and smile at their beauty Taken by confusion they no longer have a home All he ever wanted was to disappear All he ever wanted was to take his life back All he ever wanted was to disappear All he ever wanted was to take his life back…
