Track Name: Wabi Sabi Lover Boy
I'm not used to asking for what I don't deserve
All these things life's given to me, though from me no request was heard
But for you I'll make an exception, for it would really hurt
If the time I wanted you mine, was when the spirits didn't serve

I want to be your Wabi Sabi lover boy
Don't want to be just any other random boy
I want something to happen soon, I want it to be real
I want to be your Wabi Sabi lover boy

I want your pretty eyes to gaze in, I want your lips to kiss
I want to feel your soul next to mine, I want our minds to eclipse
And though the currents of eternity will set things in their own time
It would save me a lot of sleep if soon you were mine

I want to be your Wabi Sabi lover boy
Don't want to be just any other random boy
I want something to happen soon, I want it to be real
I want to be your Wabi Sabi lover boy
Track Name: You Will Die
This is the day that I will die
I can feel it in my soul but I won't cry
It's not sudden or unexpected
For the woman on whom my hate I've directed
Has sent me a letter, "You will die."

I called the sheriff and I called the judge
But they said there's no stopping that woman
When she settles a grudge

And so I went out, bought a gun
Bought a horse and packed my stuff
Set out fast, burned my house with gas
And now I'm on the run

Three days in and I still feel her breath on my neck
I'm sweating and I am a nervous wreck
Low on water and low on food
But now I'm halted by this Indian dude
Who says "You can't pass"

Where the hell am I supposed to go
when the vampire queen is surely soon to show
The sun beats down and I go mad
See the world as a plastic bag
And I pass out after hours of running

I woke up and I made camp
Set a fire, got in my sleeping bag
With my gun loaded and laying by my side
It was the most in weeks that I felt alive
It was then that the vampire queen did hunt me

Oh Josephine the vampire queen
Dark tormentor of all my dreams
Scared me bad and sent me off a running
Now she's got a gun to my head
Bang bang bang and I am dead
Track Name: Walking in the Dark
I like walking in the dark
Never know just where your foot lands
Every step it's own performance
I'm not sure just where I'm standing

And so I've stepped into the murk
I have my hand extended
Fumbling, tumbling through the dark
Voices are whispered, signs are stark

I've been leaving little hints
Not sure if you've noticed
Going in full-steam-ahead
Obviously not the way to go

And so I've stepped into the murk
I have my hand extended
Fumbling, tumbling through the dark
Voices are whispered, signs are stark

I like walking in the dark
Never know just where your foot lands
Every step it's own performance
I'm not sure just where I'm standing

Follow me, find me
Before it all melts into black goo
Sinks into a tar pit
I'm stuck on an island and looking for you
Track Name: Cannibal Maggot
The snow is melting and so is my mind
These maggots in my heart will eat me alive
I feel so needy and so insecure
I hope you don't find me overbearing because

I am a cannibal maggot
I'm an addict and you're my bad habit

Seven drummers drumming
You must look towards the horizon
I look up, I follow fingers
Pointing a the skyline
And I gasp at what I see
Staring down above me

I see your face in my head
Every single minute till I hit my bed
Your silence hurts me so much sometimes
I love the pain, never want to abstain cause

I am a cannibal maggot
I'm an addict and you're my bad habit

You are my sunshine
But I think I got a sunburn
Every time you talk to me
I'm high in the sky flying
Seven drummers drumming
Baby don't you leave me dying

I am a cannibal maggot
I'm an addict and you're my bad habit
Track Name: Just Say
To hear your voice is to see me smile
All I need is a short while
You don't seem to be exactly in tune
Wrapped up in your little cocoon

But if you'd give me the chance
I'd wrap you in my arms
Scurry you away from harm
That's how I imagine it, anyway
With one word I'm all yours today
Just say

Life just won't give you a break
It's a wonder there's any blood in your brain
How do you even find time for me
While those thoughts in your head drive you crazy

But if you'd give me the chance
I'd wrap you in my arms
Scurry you away from harm
That's how I imagine it, anyway
With one word I'm all yours today
Just say
Track Name: Adrift
I'm drifting through the blue sea
Will I ever find your port, beautiful friend
I'll sleep through this heavy storm
But when I wake, I'll steer myself to shore

My voyage a paradox
Yes, I'm halfway there, soon I'll be halfway from here
But it becomes infinite
Will I ever take this supertask to end?

I just don't know where I stand
Track Name: Morning / Evening
I'm not where I left at my morning / evening
I'm not where I'm left at my morning, forgive me
I'm not where I'm going, my future no seeing
I not aware but know neither is seething
Neither is believing

Neither is keeping in time with the past or it's self by title
Nor by substance, only by pure being which flows, not staying
Just like at the end of "American Beauty"
Like John Cage, The Roots, and teenage philosophy
Track Name: Pavlov's House
I'm not sad but it's something similar
The world didn't end but it sure as hell looks it
I don't feel cold but it's been snowing
There's no one left in these decrepit buildings

And I'll never see you again
No, I'll never see another person again
I'm being pushed through life, never will I see the past, again
No, I'll never see your pretty face again

Standing next to Pavlov's House
Decades pass you by so quickly
Your love comes to me so slowly
Save me from this melancholy

Welcome home to the wilderness
Welcome home to the wilderness
Welcome home to your wilderness
Welcome home to your wilderness
Track Name: Blacklights
I keep seeing blank white and black faces
Kangaroos jumping in margins of pages
Girl groups singing haunting harmonies like sirens
Black lights flashing on and off revealing semen

Oh no oh no we got
Something we think you'll like
We have reached a plateau
We got something that will make you scream

The record company wanted me to sign a deal
Big cat johnny shoved the pen into my hand
Bastards didn't give a shit how did i feel
As long as i made it in my 90s throwback band

Oh no oh no we got
Something we think you'll love
We have reached a valley
The waters rise we crucified you on a tree

Raining pouring droplets hit my black car
Night is pitch the forest before me intimidates
Walking forward pulled by force unreckoned
Lightning strikes a light appears and pulls me up amnesia

Oh no oh no we got
Something we think you'll love
We have reached a valley
The waters rise we crucified you on a tree
