Track Name: miracle of birth
(god
god
i’m at the mercy of myself
just me
are you a real god?
has got me trapped
god
this world i’m in
it’s got to change
bad
please)
Track Name: connected to my body
oh i wish i was more connected to my body
cause i wouldn’t know nothin if no body never taught me
and i wish i could hear myself but i’m dumb deaf blind and
i stand in the corner i am so absent-minded
if i lose my mind i’m afraid i won’t find it
i don’t like my brain i would like to rewind it
and remove restraints i would like to unbind it
i am walking behind it yes i am walking

(let us pray)
someday we can all live in peace
someway this can all be achieved
or die we can all die together
all thoughts combined still light as a feather

in my mind i am the gatekeeper
i dig my own grave deeper and deeper
and i think therefore i am a thinking man
and my only wish is to not give a damn
uh
no more no more wanting no more pleasure no more pain
just the feeling of having a brain

someday we can all live in peace
someway this can all be achieved
or die we can all die together
all thoughts combined still light as a feather
Track Name: trying to walk
i’ve been walking along and alone i go
i’ve been walking along and alone i go
i’ve been walking along and alone i go
i’ve been walking along and alone i go

i walk in the woods and i walk to the water lord
i wash my feet in the water lord
i wash my body in the water lord
i wash my head in the water lord

trying to wash this away
been trying to walk
trying to wash this away
been trying to walk
trying to wash this away
been trying to walk
trying to wash this away
been trying to walk

and i walk down these city streets
and i walk and i walk and i walk and i hurt my feet
and i watch the clouds roll in fleet
i walk to the rhythm of my own thoughts i think

i take a walk i take a walk
i take a walk and i talk to my head
i take a walk i take a walk
i take a walk and i talk to my head

trying to wash this away
been trying to walk
trying to wash this away
been trying to walk
trying to wash this away
been trying to walk
trying to wash this away
been trying to walk
Track Name: i'm feeling high (for rupie)
thinking
what would my father say
if he could see me today?
could i connect to a higher plane
if i use my brain?
believe in love
be breathing seething bleeding love?
rise above all is love
all is fuckin love
i want to be a man
a man that sees the world and understands
goes to sleep and night and really sees his plan
i sit at a computer and i see my hands
seeds turn plants
but me i got a different slant
plants turn seeds
and the animals breathe
everybody wonder how they gonna get free

i’m feeling high so high in my head
i’m feeling high so high in my head

and i always try and talk nice things about you
as i walk along each day
wondering
wandering

do you believe in love?
do you believe in love?
do you believe in love?
well i don’t know about you but
(it’s up to you whether you believe that or not)

this is my song to praise the sun
we circle round and on and on
my footstep sinks into the dirt
this is my song to praise the earth
this is my song to praise the moon
i look at you i feel in tune
i start to feel the presence left
this is my song to praise the dead

i’m feeling high so high in my head
i’m feeling high so high in my head

do you believe?

(well, i, in all honesty, must acknowledge my father.
my father is not a human father.
my father is a member of the evolutionary level above human
the kingdom of god, the kingdom of heaven.)
Track Name: because of you
it’s ‘cause of you that i’ve been feeling blue
my mind has been reeling too
lord knows it’s true that i’ve been given clues
‘bout what to do about you

and i don’t want the things you want
i think you’re on your own

decades pass so hard to make things last
or walk away on shattered glass
keep moving fast watch out for snakes in the grass
the only truth wears a mask

sometimes i forget to cry
when something is killing me

people get old need blood transfusions
you told me to hold on when it’s cold
and i wish i was bold and brazen, baby
but no, i feel controlled scolded and cajoled

and these crippling thoughts they’re all i’ve got
and they won’t leave me alone
Track Name: i want to roll with you
i want to roll with you
i want to be true
i share your point of view
and i want to roll with you

i want to hold your hand
want you to understand
i am a decent man
and i want to hold your hand

i want to run away
i want to leave this place
i am a basket case
and i want to run away

i want to roll with you
i want to rendezvous
i am a vampire
and i want to roll with you
Track Name: lion
can you hear?
and are you near to me?

lion

can you see
how can i be for you?

lion

can you feel?
how am i supposed to deal? it’s new

lion

can you walk?
can you walk?

lion
Track Name: mbube baobab
(i am the great sun
but you do not see me

i am that god
to whom you will not pray

i am the captive
but you do free me

i am the holy dove
whom you will slay)
Track Name: upon the branch
(always is always forever
as long as one is one
inside yourself for your father
all is none all is none all is one)

upon the branch of my towering pine
i saw for a second in the back of my mind
neither here nor there do they willfully paddle
the oars in my boat full of words
i saw you so gently my monitor dimmed
with the nakedness shown in the time which you spent
in a timecode i feel with my own discontent
i revealed you my heart and you unzipped the tent

now the cold wind blow
the cold wind blows

how laughable hopes how tragic indeed
i gave you the fruit and you spit out the seed
through desert and storm with this sand in my mouth
you built me a home but i called it a house
you opened the window the singing crept into
the bedroom the sound was that first ancient hymn
and lucid i lingered i let my thoughts grow
what i think of your thoughts which you'll never know

i keep my mouth closed
i keep my mouth closed

i was born again a little late i had harder time
they kept me there to incubate said i had no spine
i said i have no code to tell you no message to lend
no visitations in my dreams nothing in my head
no one calling out to me no spectre in the night
ill meet you in the garden could i see you in the light
in the basement i knew you in passages of time
this elapsing story grows you’ll find me in the pines

where the cold wind blows
the cold wind blows
Track Name: will you
will you be the one that i hold on to?
will you?
breakin’ my heart
that’s what they do
right from the start
they break it into
one hundred millions pieces
i know this love is breathing
i still haven’t found completion
i still haven’t found
what i’m supposed to be
to you
to me

my god
will you look at the world right now?
please tell me how
how can it be?
you won’t set me free
but i’m trying to be
as long as i breathe
i’m dying to be
alive and i bleed
and i want to believe
you’ll be here with me
you’ll be here with me

in the woods there’s a fork in the road that i’m traveling
could i not pedal back consequence starts unraveling
you’re the rock in this river you’re the path on this ridge
you’re the wave underneath you’re the brick in this bridge
and i am sick i am stoned i’m debased and alone
sometimes i wonder if you’re ever gonna pick up the phone

(sun and moon and stars decay
time shall soon this earth remove
rise my soul and haste away
to seats prepared above)
