Track Name: LOSS OF BIRDS
what if its true that i am part you and you are part me?
and all that we do is worms for the food of some pointless lost history?

sometimes i feel like the answer's gonna fall from the sky
then when i come to my senses it makes me feel high

sibylline queen deal me my dreams, unravel the skein, reveal the unseen
rippling stream, valley of green
down where the water's overflowing

that is where we are all going
Track Name: SOMETHING REAL
roll me over domino, backwoods radio makes me feel alright
never gonna die

keep the image in your head there's no such thing as incorrect
innocence is gone
and i just can't pretend to put it on

give me something re-e-e-e-ea-e-ealll
give me something real

old mans mad and i don't care
we're the only sane ones here
let the fire burn
ghosts are floating down the creek
folks are watching their tvs
let the circle turn

give me something real
give me something real
give me something real
give me something real
Track Name: LET IT GROW (Appalachian Irrigation)
every season
there's a reason
to be sleeping
like you mean it

when youre the only one around
i see the summer sun go down

annotation: there's no knockin
appalachian irrigation
it makes the water trickle down
it kinda make me wonder how
to move you

to move you

heavenly hell
it kind of takes my energy

heavenly hell
it kind of makes a fool of me
Track Name: THERE'S NO SAVING THIS
we may never arrive
who's to say what's a waste of your life
there's no saving this
there's no saving this
Track Name: ARE YOU THE ROCK FLYER?
Red Chinese Envelope, strange lights appear
None of the animals won't go near

that bottomless whole

Two 1943 Roosevelt dimes
God bless that sunken house
Goddam burning ice!

Are you the rock flyer?
Are you the rock flyer?
Speak to me through my boombox

Some military men come with big machines
they drag me off my land, take my identity
Are you the rock flyer?

I'm going back to the wombat sanctuary
Track Name: 100 MORON MOONS
No one knows where this road goes;
no one knows
where this road
goes.
And I've never been anywhere.

I don't know if throwing stones changes anythayng
some people go crazy for an answer
but i've got my stupid convictions
and i don't care if it takes me 100 moron moons

i put that old jawbone up on the fence
i put that jawbone on the fence
I haven't seen the damn thing since

and I don't know if that dog is ever coming home

don't worry we've got time
and i promise that i'll never go off the deep end

and the good times are gonna follow
all of our best intentions
and we'll get there, even farther
than we could have ever imagined
and i don't care
if it takes me
100 moron moons

100 more wrong moves
100 moron moons
100 moron moons
Track Name: ITERATIONS OF SLACKERDOM
there's no lesser tale of glory than our minute in the sun
ever speck here has a story and youre not the only one
all the prison yards of freedom down that hall, o open road

you dont have to change to break the mold
and you dont even have to break the strangle hold

and all you wanted was to find yourself a lie
the scope was wide and true it lead you through the night
the portal put you through and out the other side
the voice is calling you
"its time to take that ride"
Track Name: LOST DISTANCE
o wholy dynamo
light everlasting
see the shine and flee
why must we always be out of reasons

bear the stench of history

i don't care about california
wont bow down to nyc
never gonna move to (radio edit)
cause all you folks make me feel shitty
Track Name: GROUNDWORSHIPPER
i remember like it was just yesterday
by the wayside we watched the city lights go by
man, this radio surely has a mind of its own
honey dripping over the town
i just want to worship the ground

yeah its different every time you take me there
a million chapters of an ancient facsimile
chain smoking in an all night diner
you hear it like a faraway sound
hey just let me worship the ground

tell somebody that i don't wanna do this any more
i just want to worship the ground
Track Name: THAT 90'S MOVIE POSTER
i love this endless highway
all fucked up and deserted

no absence of light
will like my way
along this testament to waste

i never want to leave here
this 90's movie poster
Track Name: EVERYTHING IS WRONG
no one knows the stillness
like your old ancient of days
its a broken shovel handle
that you'll never throw away

in the flower beds of heaven
where your grandma lays to rest
in the acrid air of the trailer park
where it all turns into debt

everything is wrong

all the young ones watch the coffin close
as the wind draws ashes up
and i spent my last hundred
on a lottery ticket

everything is wrong

in those old turn styles of heaven
where your old man lost his grace
they want to put you in those turn styles
just put you in your place

everything is wrong
