Water is Heavy When I was three I almost drowned in the ocean Somebody pulled me from the water and put life into me. Is something running wild in your memories? Maybe you'll find a trace of salt. There's always a storm coming. Water is heavy. When I was fourteen, a neighbor kissed me in the rain. He said don't tell anyone he's seeing me. We're so good at hiding what we need. Is something running wild in your memories? Maybe you'll find a trace of salt. There's always a storm coming. Water is heavy. They say we'll be taken by the flood before everything dries up. But for now I'm holding your hand by the river. Is something running wild in your memories? Maybe you'll find a trace of salt. There's always a storm coming. Water is heavy.

Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miu_82hMj5s Laura Inside the Ghost Machine Laura Laura canary Laura Laura quite contrary It's an evil world your fighting against I love you, but I'm no better than the rest Laura, the dogs are out to fuck you They're careless howling behind garbage They're little boys inside sheeps' clothing While inside you is the fire of a wolf Laura inside the ghost machine All the nice robots will turn mean They clap their hands at paper agony But they're faint of heart for the real thing Laura, from a Brooklyn family dying The worm in your throat is rising While your friends regard more newsworthy fat To mock about, to laugh about, to cry about Laura, the world is sweating Just another man sweating while he's cumming Laura, the blue mountains wait for you While we sting our eyes on our dust While we sting our eyes on our dust While we sting our eyes on our dust Laura inside the ghost machine All the nice robots will turn mean They clap their hands at paper agony But they're faint of heart for the real thing Laura inside the ghost machine All the nice robots will turn mean They clap their hands at paper agony But they're faint of heart for the real thing

Torch the Countryside Play it straight to earn a life But we're electric on the side Rock it slow like the moon Speed it up like a drum Do you like to move in nightlife? Or do you like to torch the countryside? I can spit out a necklace while you equip a stone But when you touch me like that I feel like I'm home You've been shifting in your chair Come over here, I've let down my hair Palm trees and weekends slip by Juniper fruit and paper glue and exit signs How lucky we are in civilization But I'd follow you before we had language Long are the nights and we build cities inside Full of neon and amplified Birdcage through the flames tonight Thermal waves of your heat with mine

If I Turn Into a Black Rose You entered my door a storm of chaotic roses Stirred up by a lightening bolt of bees The world is full of hustlers, angels, and demons But your love is sanctuary The city is a wrench getting tighter A living scraped into a sad buffet You rescued me to an unforeseen garden In the landscape of your mind If I turn into a black rose Please don't kiss me goodbye My heart is a torn letter My heart is blown away In the afterglow of recognition To see the future unfold with clear eyes The first time we swim naked Releasing the darkness inside If I turn into a black rose Please don't kiss me goodbye My heart is a torn letter My heart is blown away My heart is a torn letter My heart is blown away

Star of the Unborn Love me like a flag waving in your country's hands. Let's blow stardust, and twist tongues into endless ampersands. Take me to the star of the unborn. There's a blue flame over our bed and red tongue splitting the air. Your eyes grow darker when you start tugging my hair. Take me to the star of the unborn. A vase carries life, ringed with a festival of lights. Obelisk in the cool of night, pointing to starlight. Take me to the star of the unborn. When you say things so cheap, like gold, like nickel-plated lies Don't expect me to believe unless it broadens my sky. Take me to the star of the unborn. We're making teasers for the next lift, like a dump-truck to our lips. And the stars shine on, and behind them could be long gone. Take me to the star of the unborn. Take me to the star of the unborn.

Idol Your eyes turn to mine The miles closing in You enter like the light of the moon And leave a puzzle finished to soon Your my idol And I will tease out All your moonshine Don't be afraid To touch me in the dark Don't be afraid To laugh when the lights are on Your my idol I'll be an audience To any of your dregs I'm like colored paper Highlighting the gutter You come down the street Big and slow like a steamroller Idol Your my idol And you remind me I'm just a piece of paper A glint of amethyst In your eyes There's a black ocean But it's inside The fireflies were flashing Their brief life in the woods Everything hot & breaking Under double rainbows You're my idol In a quiet room I go to thoughts of you

King Yellowman one-two, one-two zungguzung guguzung zungguzung guguzeng zungguzung guguzung zungguzung guguzeng King Yellowman in imagination land King Yellowman and the rooster command Prairie up pilgrims in imagination land When evolution echoes in the desert Howling remains of a stardust theater King Yellowman and the rooster command Prairie up pilgrims in imagination land Spin the record like unzipping blue jeans zippers We like a little boom boom Ziggy Stardust theater King Yellowman and the rooster command Prairie up pilgrims in imagination land When evolution echoes in the desert Howling remains of a stardust theater

Day Unfolding Within [dawn] sun erasing drunken stars from the sky clean slate open your eyes morning unfolding in the landscape of your mind [day] take your name downtown leave your tracks till sundown we all carry grief in life we all hide a thief inside by chance the human race creation stories in the cradle of space by chance here with you do you love me like love you? [dusk] I won't take no time to rest there's the country of our lives to walk in I won't take no time to rest there's the country of our lives to walk in
