there's a soft ringing in your chest from the bullets that I laid there, and I hope that you'll forgive (forget) me in a year

I found your name in a circle book And I said hello triangle It seems you're lost inside another world If you'll just let me have a look at your vitals I lost your letters in the seams The jacket was so old and tattered I figured out why blue is green But that did not help me solve the puzzle I killed an ant with a twelve gauge I had to shoot like three times though I had to kill him, though, anyway He had the password to my skull

In the floors and walls All we fall All we are Under sheets we call The puppets with our eyes Find disguised Feathers on my fingers Illuminate with light Cast shadows on the night Through the door I hear voices Is she telling him? Door slams, goodnight Lullaby

I grabbed my coloring book I painted the shells within I had a second look The faces felt too thin, oh (I fought the man and I sold the sand and I sailed the seas and no one is getting away, oh) The water's getting deep It's coming past my knees I wonder what it's like To feel the breeze if you're a tree (Kill all the jews and kill the nation kill all the nazis too, oh) I felt a flame within I'd left my wick unchecked The fire did begin To escape my neck (There is a nihilist tendency to reduce and reduce and reduce and reduce and reduce) The grass between my toes is separated What was it in me chose to flatten some by not some? (If you say a word many times it may lose its meaning) I took a picture of the dying sun But then when night set in it didn't light nothin' I took a walk along the cold concrete I heard the sounds above, but not a soul'd I meet, oh The grass, and the roots, and the leaves on the trees And that time that you spoke with your eyes on me And the day that darkness filled my eyes And the way that the sun made me feel alive, oh

All the day The sun is shining We're okay And when we sleep Our thoughts are purple Like splotches of black against the back of eyelids And all the leaves are cold and blue but, winter's gone and so are you So are you The water's clear like glass It'll hold me Yeah it'll hold me And my brother kicked my ass But he'll hold me Yeah he'll hold me If your mother tells you lies You know she's only telling you she loves you Yeah you know that she loves you And when we die Sure as hell we won't die together And when we die We'll rot in the ground And the worms and birds and other words will eat our mouths

I'll play the songs I sung for you and then one day you'll hear them too And if the words don't come to me I'll cut them out, I'll set them free I want another day to dance inside my head, again, again Then all the thoughts come flying out, I'm left inside with fear and doubt They won't catch me They won't set me free If I lash out, don't cry I'll shout I would like to tell you though, the rose has leaves that lose their glow And if I can't just seal it now I'll lose my grip and fall somehow The late spring seed comes falling down, a little late to drier ground But if I can get my way you'll see that seed become the tallest tree They won't catch me They won't set me free If I lash out, don't cry I'll shout Sister...

Get high underneath the branches of trees We'll see who can blow the best circle I don't like the wind, it makes me feel small I got a piece of paper, says your name on it If you want it, or I'll burn it up we'll say fuck Fuck the man, yeah we'll say fuck the plans made for us Fuck the people who make us feel small They got market forces, logic on their side I got the feeling of being alive Won't you kill the machine for a dollar? A collar, like a dog 'Cause I'll call her if she wants my cock But that's not what I mean, it's not what I mean Fuck the man, yeah we'll say fuck the plans made for us Fuck the people who make us feel small For a penny, maybe little Jenny will grow up big and strong But she won't go to private school and go to Harvard law They say she's fucked, I say she's fuckin' free Fuck the man, yeah we'll say fuck the plans made for us Fuck the people who make us feel small Won't you kill the machine for a dollar? A collar, like a dog 'Cause I'll call her if she wants my cock And I mean it, I really fucking mean it Fuck you all And we all write our hippy songs, yeah we all write our hippy songs yeah And we all write our hippy songs, yeah we all write our hippy songs yeah And we all write our hippy songs, yeah we all write our hippy songs yeah And we all write our hippy songs, yeah we all write our hippy songs yeah

cornerstoned, we're lost in space who will make us leave this place? the cops came out and we all ran who are they to tell us to behave big red eyes and yellow teeth this summer i want to lose my virginity and there was you, and there was me lost in some philosophy hey My mind turned into a dopamine pool I'm singing i'm dancing We're playing with you I never wanted to be brand new with you -------------------------------------- We climbed up to the rocks and saw the land below I remember the rush of high The thrill Is this religion? The ukelele strums and hums I love the sound of smoking guns We lied there on the grass And watched the clouds float past --------------------------------------- When the days turned dry and cold Held my sweater up to my nose And sat up on the curb For over an hour Couldn't get her out of my head For over a year might as well have been dead Just forget about her man Still can't fucking get over it ------------------------------------------ Flourescent concrete got me caught in Something beautiful but it's a jail Just like any other
