Track Name: No One is a Tree
There was a sound that I heard, between
Something like a rolling South & East
Between, and I can hear Einstein mumbling
Through the water in the AC

Spitting out chewing gum never failed to be static
Always another trash can
Will arrive before the elevator chime
Before the sliding silvery shine

There was a sound that I heard, between
Something like a rolling South & East
Between, and I can hear Einstein mumbling

No longer miles but always driving

Remind yourself saying no one is a tree
I will keep my hands in my pockets and my shoes on my feet
No, drink the shivering morning of the body
Beside beside beside you

(We have this song we sing, I really miss you, you're so far away)
Track Name: Building Salad
If we can build this city
Up from the ground to the
Tops of the trees and beyond
To make our own skyline
Then its damn sure that we can
Face the day and finally believe in something and

I don't know what you think anymore
'Cause you don't tell me and
I don't know what I think anymore
'Cause I don't tell me

If we can make up words from sounds to form a language
And write ourselves pretty dictionaries
Then its damn sure that we can
Spell it out-- what we need-- and hit the ground running and

I don't know what you think anymore
'Cause you don't tell me and
I don't know what I think anymore
'Cause I don't tell me
(We aren't speaking...)
Track Name: Coffee Wheel
Slumped in the backseat
Feel the light shine and pass
Across closed eyelids
Electricity sizzles and pops
Against the brain tissue I want to
End so I can be everything

We brought reminders from home
Coffee smudged against the tile floor
Renovations needed made
Asleep against the wheel going seventy

Help reaches out in the form of a few off handed comments
Lets go outside and play with masks on
Be careful, after years of work these walls are still fragile
Poisons seeps, and I left a stain in your bed
Track Name: Waking Up with Fuzzy Mouth
Flood gates burst as dawn awaits
Dig for blood, our loving way....
Waves of discontent
(Make promise) to repent

For years of woes and empty sighs
Capture color, paint our lives

This mastercraft
Of breaths drawn deep
Our palate built
Then lost...
This mastercraft
of breaths drawn deep
our palate built
then lost... in sleep

Faintly to recall
The thought that forged it all

From what great mind had conjured up
Dreams which can't be
Woken up

This mastercraft
Of breaths drawn deep
Our palate built
Then lost...
This mastercraft
of breaths drawn deep
our palate built
then lost... in sleep
