Track Name: Summer Kampf
The Girls are coming up Strong
Busting up within this tower of Song
We've always known
We're always wrong
Mining nature for so long

Wont to bring them into flame and focus
'Times they've sung unto the Stoke us

Lean, Weirded with a folk guitar
don't phone
the zone
Two Tone

Only blend it when it's light
(like lemon meringue)
Track Name: I Floss (Furry)
Billie didn't enjoy work today
just passed the time....
and then we were all so blown away.
away too long
for damn sure.
I told off!
the boss :0
had to, cause I floss

"Business reply by mail
when telling the savage tale....
like a snail, it's so slow to go, to grow
to go..."
Track Name: Jupiter'z Loot
Jupiterz Loot
and his caviar dreams
that pussy felt friction in jordache blue jeans
you've got to stay limber
through the fire years
and the Mason Jar conquers
all those sour tears

and the Dart Board racks up all the beers!

Venus's Rain
meets the seam of my brain
and it melts all the dander and ol' Robin Zander
comes marching inside me (dream police uniform)
and I welcome his license as if it's the norm

...and the cluster shows off all his form!
Track Name: Trust not an Age
a silken pie

in hushed repose

wholesome food as "emperor's clothes"

The Blessed Sun

The Path traversed

Things gazed upon

We are raised among

Celestial names

that play at games

Invoke a face

Serpentine grace

The chattering

mind's vagaries

The chambered house

I found a mouse

The Roses spring

now, "taste your legs"

they're designed to move

Propel your wit

through vouchsafed ear

it's one to get

Much stronger now

Trust not my Age
Track Name: Pterodactyl Dan
Pterodactyl Dan
He's movin' through the City with his big wingspan
Pterodactyl Dan
He's feeling awfully pretty cause he's got a fan

He leapt into the sky
on Barber Shop Pole Wings
They curl into your eyes
All shadow chasing things...

Like mannequins on Scooters
in perfect postures posed
Enticing us with Cooters
and Fishnet Pantyhose
It shows!

"Hell" Come along and shadow dance all over you...
His pills are strong; you only need like one or two
Track Name: The Origin of Food
The Origin of Food
who took the first bite?
in the mood
Made the first move?
took the first poop
in the soup (primordial)

Was it a woman or a dude?
Was it considered rude?
or natural selection
like chocolate cream perfection
primordial cafe
for women of the west
a transfer of attrition
of blinding elegance
like MANA steamed with Milk
conditioned in a sense
the catalyst your ilk
Track Name: Psychic Films from the Brain Gut Axis
A Gelatin Silver suspension of sorts
Images melding between all your snorts
Chromatic tension projected so clear
Shutter you eyelids and lean on the wall
Maybe the baby you popped won't still fall
Forming are images inside your gut
Shutter will shut
Axis is cut

Inside your mind
we are inclined
Can't push rewind
if it's hard to find
"Mine"- (this word is a verb)

Track Name: Erection Sustained !
"Your Honor, may i approach the Bitch?"
"Erection Sustained!"
Track Name: I don't Like U (stab stab stab)
Stringent Inhibiting Waves
Flowed through me for days and days

I don't feed u
grab, grab, grab
i don't like u
stab, stab, stab

You're just like a methadone re run
now you're on your own
justice paradigm
believe it
sieve it
sleeve it
Leave it!

Septic tank of the Mouth
blowin in the wind when the flag is pointed south

I don't feed u
grab, grab, grab
I don't like u
stab, stab, stab

Worked my way through two or three folks
flayed their flesh with 2 or 3 strokes
Justice paradigm
believe it
Read it
Feed it
Bleed it!
Track Name: Gretel (Statuesque) and Olive (Eager Bee)
Gretel (Statuesque) and Olive (Eager Bee)
they're waiting for me
They're there for me

Sticking out their Chests
and yawning like a tree
They're waiting for me
Waiting for Me

Sunlight warms their bones
Pillows serve as thrones
High on the sunchair
out on the porch
They light the Torch.......

for centuries of Love
The Sentries of Love
Track Name: Donald (Hue Frog)
He flicks all the hues and strays
inside the smog
the frog
the world
his log, like "Sparks"
and PROG
Donald Hue Frog
Donald Hue Frog

Nice Giants
and Eager Beefs
This Beard makes me look like a Storm
that's not the norm for me.....

She Wicks all the shadows Plays
Inside the Fog
and beams you high
to Clog
and Dance, and Jog!
Donald Hue Frog
Donald Hue Frog

Fleece, Feathers
and a good night's sleep

This Beard makes me look like a Storm
and that's not the norm for me......
Track Name: Fall in Love (Before the Show)
Fall in Love
Before the Show
Those of us
who dare to go
Peel your skin off
feel it slide off
really come off
fall in love before the show
those of us who dare to go
