Track Name: Warranted Pre Emptive Day
so you wanna get completely destroyed
want to throw your mind into the big void
wanna take a trip into the bird box
want to belly up just like the red sox

then catch on fire
travel through the wire
and up the ramp
through the amp
out the box
on the Rocks

Pour yourself a glass
right into your ass
immerse it in the sponge
board the gurney
take the plunge
throw away the hand grenade
warranted preemptive day

so you wanna go completely off track
wanna fasten down the monkey back pack
wanna meet the minotaur in the maze
you're gonna run from him for 1000 days

then catch a break
travel through the snake
and shed your skin....
once again !
peel it off!
feed the cough...

pour yourself a shot
Write, until you're not
immerse it in the sponge
board the gurney
take the plunge
throw away the time delay
warranted preemptive day

Track Name: Handlebars
I saw two guys on one bicycle today.
They were so happy, they were on their way...
one of them was sitting on the handlebars
they were in love, they both have cars
still they choose the handlebars
working out now
this deserves a beer.

I saw two girls holding hands in the park
they were so happy; they weren't in the dark
one of them was smiling only with her eyes
They were in love! ; just like the guys....
I'll always know those smiling eyes.
working out now
this deserves a meal.
Track Name: Highway Hypnosis (slap me five times)
I don't want to
I don't want to
but I'm going to
and it's showing through

digitalis, uber-ALICE
Lewis Carroll
running feral
highway driving
not arriving
Close; blinders in place
give me a face
a weathered old mage

highway hypnosis is calling
I'm fallin'....one of the reasons
is you're so far away
please don't go away
Keep me
between the lines
slap me 5 Times
Track Name: Gretel Saw the Rooster
Gretel saw the rooster
how he was struttin' round the block
that cock
he ain't got no flock
that's all
Let's call him Saul
Ringo, George, John, Paul
cause
he sings his song
all day long
to me
Now
Struts around the lawn

Olive saw the rooster
how he was marching through the grass
so crass!
he's got some sass
that's all
Let's call him Saul
Ringo, George, John, Paul
cause
he sings his song
all day long
to me
Now
Struts around the lawn
Track Name: "Musts" and Must Haves
his universe, it started quick
long ago with a click
a super-nova burst of songs
some were short; some were longs

and REAL- to reel
Going in your mind

His universe, it spreads far back
long ago, with a "Clack"
and "I've begun to Fall in Love"
for a while; like a glove

of "musts" and must haves!
sentimental ties....

r. stevie moore
explore to explore !

"i've begun to fall in love"
for a while; like a glove
Track Name: Not Safe for Work or Anyone (Anytime, Anywhere)
When I paint my masterpiece, only in underwear
sitting upon the floor
you'll be standing there in the door
not safe for work or anyone, anytime, anywhere
Exercise and brush strokes on your face
are gonna leave you with a trace of something xtra in your skin
We just wanna have fun
Rock n' Roll is #1
built on "I can See for Miles"
"Miles of Aisles"
somehow
Built on "California Man"
your folks are gone, you can
Blue Dress on!
Will I paint my masterpiece?
Track Name: Body of Trust (No Me Olvides)
Below the surface
a woman's instinct
puts on it's shoes
to sing the blues

trust your own body it has served you for this long
It served this song
thrust upon you!
walking in shadow as you pluck it from the wall
nobly, it's fluted through reality and gall
ALL:

Sought, in prayer
bought, with hair
time bomb passing...

sound, so low
spark, to flow
false face, must hide stuff!

Trust your own body!
it served you this long..
it's awfully naughty!
it passes, this song

retrace the pattern of the jester and his lute
it makes me sad .....patiently,
in apprehension as we pluck it from the ranch
testing out the tension of the fibers on the branch
NOW:

ground, so low
Done ,so slow
joy in doing

Breath, for sport
drawn, so short
joy in doing
ALL
Track Name: Do You Believe in Tragic?
Do you believe in tragic?
like in a young girls heart
when it blows, it goes or doesn't even start
tragic....blood clot in her leg
then they saws it off and now she's got a peg

Tragic

Just not fair
please don't stare
there....

Tragic
Tragic

Do you believe in Tragic?
like the plough man's pain
and he does a dance
it never ever rains
tragic and his wife can't cope....and they find her hanging from a piece of rope

Tragic

Just not fair
please don't stare
there....

What can you do but make it true?
Where do we go
I don't know
Track Name: She Took the Steering Wheel, My Eyes
My heart was pounding like some jungle club beat
I found my feet
it wasn't easy
I couldn't find my car or where I was parked
It wasn't dark, it was 100 degrees
Never been so thirsty
you're such a tease

' wanted to go see Stephen Malkmus that night
I couldn't hang
it wasn't right
The techno club had opened up in my chest
the doorman thought that everybody was dressed
never been so scattered
I must confess

I saw my special love
and she knew, she was my glove
and I knew , she saved my life
that night
let me tell you bout it !
how she took the steering wheel
My eyes!
Let me focus on it
like a million Strat-at-ford on Guys
Girls,
Thighs,
Curls.
