Track Name: Cabbages
Go out into the street
Everything screams
Wake up
Wake up

Even the man
With no one home
In his eyes
But the wind
But the wind

What I want is this but simpler
And you
Slap your rosebud cheeks the dark earth in your cracks
The priest they called me of the laundromat

I saw tombs of the willows
Dead turned to ash
Bones to cabbage
Cabbages to young men
Cabbages to young men

What did cabbages care for dictators?
Very little, I think
Took the bone and ash of flesh
Ran it up their skinny veins green white pink

My men and women
Who went to the gas under grass
Again on the leaf edge
Reaching for the sun

Go out into the street
Everything screams
Wake up
Wake up
Track Name: Yosemite
Yosemite
Instead of a woman
I'll kiss the sky of your face
Bless me song goddess
Take me in your light
Step in the black water
Take me where you will

There was no hurry
There was no hurry
There was no hurry
There was no hurry

Oh I could disappoint him
It's just the same
It's not the same
It's just the same

Dreampt I went into the wilderness
Brought my laptop to the golden state
Time stumbled on her dress
You unearthed my fate

There was no hurry
There was no hurry
There was no hurry
There was no hurry

Oh I could disappoint you
Oh it's just the same
Oh it's not the same
Oh it's just the same

And oh if I really see you
It's like drinking from a valley stream
And oh if I really see you
It's like drinking from a valley stream
Track Name: Nets
Not in your net yet nope not in your net
Not in your net yet nope not in your net
Not in your net yet nope not in your net
Not in your net yet nope not in your net
Haha I'm lazy haha I love it
Not in your net yet nope not in your net
Not in your net yet nope not in your net
Not in your net yet nope not in your net
Not in your net yet nope not in your net
Haha I'm lazy branches under mud

You stood clenched and enraged
After three detuned days
You finally me made me serious
I believed strange games of right and wrong
Love me with gorilla arms
Tangled rose
Dark door
Place of fire and light and underbelly

Sneaking on the D train cost a hundred dollars
Caught by the shortness of it all
Nothing at Coney wanted the change
Caught by the shortness of it all

When I am serious
Underwater moments
So fast and so sweet

Run like a horse over the plain
Run like a horse over the plain
Run like a horse over the plain
Run like a horse over the plain

We can take our nets and burn them through
Learn to be as weird as we want
John said that I might find
That I was the woman running in the pines
She touched the rock, her finger was mine
I ran across earth as wild neon fire

Run like a horse over the plain
Run like a horse over the plain
Run like a horse over the plain
Run like a horse over the plain
Track Name: Haze
I woke up in that old haze again
I woke up in that old haze again
I woke up in that old haze again
I woke up in my old haze again

Go forth and find out what it is
Go forth and find out what it is
I'll go forth and find out what it is
I'll go forth and find out what it is

I'm sorry I'm guilty
I'm sorry I was guilty
I'm sorry I'm guilty
I'm sorry I was guilty
Track Name: Falcon Song
After I betrayed you I turned into a falcon
After I betrayed you I turned into a falcon
In Kansas' purple night you were free from all your thoughts
In Kansas' purple night you were free from all your thoughts
Could it stay that-a-way?
Could you stay that-a-way?
I fell entangled in the way that she said yes

Go back to California
Put another dead bird in the freezer
You were hoping I would come out alive
Paint pictures photographs I'll fly

Point Reyes your lands they are a woman
Point Reyes sleeping naked in the sea
Point Reyes please spend the night with me
Point Reyes sleeping naked in the sea

Go back to oak tree's form
Your face before you parents were born
Only speak on the side of life
Only rail on the side of night

Point Reyes your lands they are a woman
Point Reyes armpits filled with elk and trees
Point Reyes please spend the night with me
Point Reyes sleeping naked in that sea

Thought you were the most beautiful woman
That I had ever seen
In your arms I am learning
That I only need to be a human being

You wash me clean of this longing
For things to stay the same
I run across your green belly
I dive in your white stream

I have chosen the way of an ordinary life
I have chosen the way of an ordinary life
I have chosen the way of an ordinary life
I have chosen the way of an ordinary life
I have chosen the way of an ordinary life
I have chosen the way of an ordinary life
I have chosen the way of an ordinary life
I have chosen the way of an ordinary life
Track Name: Morning Song
Day came dawn red
I went over the edge of the Earth
At ten thousand feet I walked up her breast
Under my pretense a quick violent growl

I was surrounded by the desolate cirque
Full moon rising over the edge of the Earth
I'd just crawled up from the fire pits
Come to suck water from earth's tit

I sat on a rock above the lake
Your words came to me, an echo, a mistake
A jest not kidding but stretching me to stand
Saying rise quick flame and be a man

You must change your life
There is nothing to hold onto

I'll never know you, you did not write for me
But how did you know my terrible secrets?
I cannot say what I owe your words
Woman I'll say you open doors

You must change your life
There is nothing to hold onto

Wolf spider now is long gone
Ferret sleek since I've gone long
