1. Late Enough (In The Night)

late enough in the night
if you want come and sign
on my back and I’ll try
all I can to ease you
into your rest
hold my hand
you can lay in my lap
and I’ll smile
you won’t see
cause you’ll be sound asleep

late enough in the night
when our legs are aligned
on your back
I imbibe
as I suck out the blue
from your neck
so when I shake
and there are no words to say
sometimes it’s too much
to look at you
looking at me too

late enough in the night
when your eyes are nearest to mine

2. Alls I Need

Alls i need to do
is extend my view
and make these faces more familiar

i always knew that you were my best friend
but now I know
so will I follow through?
It's all I need to do

friend in need,
I too will find a home in where
my feet take me and I take care
it's alright
to feel lonely when my mind gets tired
of feeling empty all inside

but I will try harder
to make it a point
and you'll never really know
I got a life of my own

and I will try harder
to fill all my voids
and you'll never really know
I got a mind of my own

so now I got the light and I'm gonna give it
and now I got the ball and I'm running with it

so will I follow through?
cause alls I need to do is do

3. Cherry Dip

go with me now
to the end of the day
we can go for a walk
I’ll hold onto your things
making out with my girl on the green line
swapping spit like a kid on the green line

stay with me now
till the start of the day
we can take off our clothes
till the city’s awake
making out with my girl on the green line
swapping spit like a kid on the green line

you don’t have to be alone

all in time patience sees
that your hoping’s not for nothing
all in time comfort waits
hope he’s calling out my name
wishing on a new years grape
hope he’s calling out my name

come with me quick
to the deep in the night
summer day cherry dip
then I’ll roll you up tight
making out with my girl on the green line
swapping spit like a kid on the green line

you don’t have to be alone

all in time patience sees
that you’re hoping it’s
not for nothing
all in time comfort waits
hope he’s calling out my name
spent last new years on twelve grapes
hope he’s calling out my name

4. Cauliflower

You don’t know this but
I used to wait for you
to take the elevator
so I could ride with you

now I’m overdressed
in a suit and tie
lingering at your door
trying to make you smile
cause I love it when you smile

and a pumpkin seed for my sister
little sprouting bean; grow forever

rain is calling me saying “come outside”
hide under my hair like a camouflage
but you found me didn’t you?

so you can cry to me
I won’t say anything
you know you can cry to me

I never told you about
how I always knew
from the magazines
how I felt for you

so hold an open door
make a stranger smile
oh well at least for
for a little while

and a cauliflower
for our growing old
do a luau dance
and I know you know

lore’s staring out
at the lettering
what’s she seeing there
in that window pane?
oh tell me

you can cry for me
I won’t say anything
I won’t tell anybody


you said that you felt
as if you shaved your head
and I don’t think you know about
how much it meant
and I know where time goes
to the flowers on the side
of the road where the car came
and took his young life
so I’m saying Maria
lets give it a try
because you’ll lose everything eventually
on the day that you die
and i’ll lose everything eventually
on the day that i die
so why wonder?

oh you don’t it but
sometimes I wait for you
inside that elevator
I love to ride with you

5. Slow Dancing

feeling funny
it’s my fault that you’re loved by me
but I’ll take the fall
I’ll sleep it off
for you

6. Lovelow

lovelow knows me
now I’m sad-eyed
blue controls me
tell her I’m tired

there’s too many colors, man
how do you keep up with them?
there’s too many fuckers, man
how do I compete with that?

and I forget sometimes
the things my brother can say to me
like “I love you, Ty”
where does that place with everything?
cause it made me shake

bed laying, brown eyes
love-high smiling
rug fixed hold it
keep from crying

the endless fear
that gone is gone
my ears pressed to your telephone
my pocket friends are nearing far
they tell me that I’m not alone

but don’t forget you are alone in this world, Ty
did you forget you were alone?
but that’s alright

but I smell like Daisy
your scent makes me blush
oh, where do my arms go
when I’m thinking too much?
when I move past my prime
will the light in my eyes shut ?
the day I grow so dishonest
I’d rather be nothing at all

well there’s too many colors, man
how do you keep up with them?
there’s so many fuckers man
I know I’m no exception
my fear will end when you’ll be gone
don’t tell me that I’m not, Alone
my pocket friends are moving on
our ears fixed to a telephone
home; give up and go home

7. For My Friends

dizzy head / a best friend
I pinched the skin
on my stomach
and though I tried
I couldn’t cry

coaster track
with a camera flash
photograph, it’s all us three and dad
grasp and release
it’s easy right?
grasp and release
you squeezed me tight

so who knows how
to keep from falling down?
guess I’ll find out
just keep saying out loud
“won’t let that green
eat at me”
oh

hold on let go
and be grateful
you were held so close

older now
“it’s always been”
doesn’t mean
it will always be
won’t let that green
embody me

who am I kidding with
the suit and silver watch
why do I crush myself
when comfort’s all I want?

but I’m glad each day
is another chance
and I’ll always be
there for my friends

grasp and release
don’t let your soul sink to your feet

8. Someone Said

someone said that it’d all go by
I smiled it off and I closed my eyes
and I’m still living in the present time

until someone says that it hurts a lot
I’ll keep em pinned and I’ll let go not
I’ll wear my belt with all my pride
I’m a victor chimp of a cage fight
and I know your knocked out somewhere on the other side

so if I die I’ll turn to light
illuminate you through the nights
where in your bed you coil yourself
and you’re laughing at jokes
on the phone with someone else
and I don’t care if I’m forgotten this time
I don’t care if I’m forgotten just wait until I die

I thought someone said that they’d meet me here
and I’m waiting still for her to appear
so I fell for it, the oldest trick
to take account a skeleton
I guess I’ll keep my pen
but what good’s a song
if it don’t mean shit to anyone?
then come the eyes of “are you alright?”
and you ask me this but you know I’m not tonight
cause somewhere’s growth I know it’s near
(and I’m still waiting for her to appear)
but it’s not here

then comes the shame
oh it’s something else
that same old shame that makes me hate myself
and I know talk is cheap
when you beg your lord
oh yeah well sometimes talk is all I can afford
like when you fell for it the oldest trick
saying “I’m only human”
and I guess I’ll keep my pen
but what good is a song
if it don’t make me into anyone
if it don’t make me a better person
a song can’t make you a better person
and my songs won’t make me a better person

and if someone said
they saw in my soul
I’d laugh or cry
I still don’t know

9. The Way She Wears Her Hair

can you stay, rainy day?
I’m inside it’s okay

saw your face
on the big screen
sissy squeaks
“rewind please”
now I am realizing that
everyone’s gotta be something

can you stay
bird in gray
your name fits
with my name
rolling off my tongue
sometimes I say it just to myself
dnuora era stsohg ylno nehw

I’m sorry i can’t kill my craving for you
I’m sorry i can’t cease my thirst when I see you
if I could I’d swallow the rain up!

saw them walk
caught an eye
jewely shines
right on by
all their feathers are in order
but I’m not buying it
everybody’s trying too hard
and then there’s you
you wear your feathers how they fall
do you think once or twice at all?

I’m always seeing my face inside your mirror
when there are two of me
which one do you see?
and which one will I be?

10. After Oddsac

did you like the movie?
I don’t know yet
mothers eyes
and I’m alive
cause I can see them

for me to feel alone
when no one calls my phone
oh man

did you like the movie?
I don’t know yet
fathers eyes
saying “I’m alive”
and I can see them

for me to feel alone
cause no ones hearts my own
oh man

Now I’ll never take for granted this time
when everyone I love is still alive

did you like the movie?
I don’t know yet

11. Redwood

one day I will be a redwood
how could it not be true?
because I want so bad to

cause when I spilt my guts
you kissed my mouth
so now I could grow to blue

one day I will be a redwood
how could it not be so?
cause I want so bad to grow

so when you spill your guts
I’ll hold your arm
and now I could grow to blue

12. You Know What

who am I now?
I’m not the young punk rocker
and far away is the day that Damon played in his punk band and I was

tightrope over sea of green
if it gets rough just keep close to me
can’t forget oh not this time
no roller-coaster on my thigh
to pack you up- that’s not my place
but I came all this way just to kiss on your face
so who am I now?
and what’s my silence saying
what am I trying to say?
does it say “I love you?”
is it saying “I’ll be true?”
does it say “I want you?”
hope it’s saying it all

hold her
keep it
keep her
hold it
holder’s keeper
smile while you can
nothing lasts for forever

13. Ooh Rocket

ooh rocket, take me high
ooh rocket, take me where I can’t fly
