Track Name: As the Prey of a Hawk
Living in the dust
bucolic crosshairs pass over the mountain
She does what she must
she's just trying to remember
what she’s already forgotten

Fall asleep in her hand

Livin could it be nothing
it sure feels like something
when you're tabbed out
Prisms lie on the horizon
there's no disguising
your lizard snout

Living in a neon oasis
dyin in fluorescant sand
Following the trail of faces
see all the places
you understand
Track Name: Moist Opportunity
Trying to learn
turning the tide
picture a ring
sticking out of your eye
Billions of girls
thousands ive seen
some are so lovely
but you are the queen

Stopping and starting
well how could I know
you're cleanin the surface
wherever you go
Even the line
seems to divide
loving in silence
but burning inside

And if you were here well I’d tell you so
I see the fire that surrounds you
Track Name: Eric Fordsun
There once was a man who owned all of the land
and he went by the name Eric Fordsun
He was a great man you know that much is true
and we called him this glorious name

One day on the roof stands a crow in the sunlight
and we called him this name Eric Fordsun
He was a better crow than you have ever known
so we gave him this glorious name

One day on the fence little rat passing by
and we called him this name Eric Fordsun
He was a prime example of a very good rat
and we gave him this glorious name

One night in the yard there a skunk creeping in
and we called him this name Eric Fordsun
He was quite well mannered and a dignified skunk
so we gave him this glorious name

And so in this perfect world I'm dreaming of
the people say
‘it’s Eric Fordsun we love'
and so we thank Eric in heaven above
our slumlord our landlord our king

Day breaks
the tiny birds awake
a sigh escapes the wind
that certainly you’re meant to be our friend
Eric Fordsun
our king
Eric Fordsun
You are my Star
my Light
my Heart

From the rat to the crow to the skunk to the man
every creature now named Eric Fordsun
We give the name to all in the world that we see
for it is such a glorious name

Yes there once with a man who owned all of the land
and we call him this name Eric Fordsun
We pay him our monthly gift of rent
to show our respect and love
Track Name: Dinosaur Days
There's something under the bed
I'm never taking a bath
What is this food that you made
It looks like somebody's barf

I'm getting jumped on the stairs
I'm riding a cart down a hill
creating an army of mutant snowmen
that I must kill

And somedays I think that I'm a dinosaur
It's not what it seems
This little cardboard machine

And there's this girl on the block
I think I've fallen in love
I shove her face in the dirt
Maybe I've fallen too hard

I'm teetering on a log
I'm dancing with my tiger friend
exploring the woods and the world together
Stupendous Man will defend

And somedays I think that I'm a dinosaur
It's not what it seems
This little cardboard machine

And somedays I think that I'm in outer space
pulling a face
at the human species
Track Name: Another Night
Another night
another day
the frozen trees
all turned away
It's not enough
to make yourself
What could it mean
Maybe someone else could be
making it for you hopefully

Another night
another time
What would it take
to make up your mind
It wouldnt hurt
to make yourself
What do you need
Maybe someone else could be
making it for you hopefully

Another night
another year
another song
for your friends to hear
Why don’t you know
where you have been
so many nights
Maybe someone else could be
making it for you hopefully
Track Name: Saturday Morn
I got party dust
all around my mouth
and stuffed in my nose
I take a whiff of something thats reeking
I'm wearing last nights clothes

I never knew that it would be a situation like this
on a saturday morn
and there's gonna be plentiful
music coming out of the mist
just like before I was born

Everything's folding in
the whole world spinning
and turning inside out
I pile up the puke in my jacket
I'm lying to myself

I never knew that it would be a situation like this
on a saturday morn
and there's gonna be plentiful
music coming out of the mist
just like before I was born
Track Name: All Over Town
He was a man
and she was a woman
While he goes out to wander
the woman stays at home with the boy

He was a man
and she was a woman
Against all satisfaction
the woman falls in love with the boy

I'm going down to Chown Town
gonna go buy myself some chown
I'm going down to Chown Town
hope my chown ain't turning brown

and BBO Smally
sneaks out to the alley
to sup on a bowl of sour
While a white pasty lady
her name of Lassuna
is chomping right down on a piece of bire
while she sits and calmly screams :

I'm going down to Chown Town
gonna go buy myself some chown
I'm going down to Chown Town
hope my chown ain't turning brown

She was a man
and he was a woman
All coloured in brown
I frown
my chown
Track Name: Be Your Neil
I wanna be your Neil
yeah baby I really wanna be your Neil
Girl I wanna be your Neil
oh darling I really wanna be your Neil
Cut you deal
cook you a meal
make you squeal
i wanna be your fuckin Neil

Last night I had a dream
that I became your Neil
I guess in time we’ll see my friend
if my dreams congeal
Hopefully someday
my dream will be real

I wanna be your Neil
yeah baby I really wanna be your Neil
Girl I wanna be your Neil
oh darling I really wanna be your Neil
Cut you deal
cook you a meal
make you squeal
i wanna be your fuckin Neil

well one day I promise you
that I will be your Neil
It's just a premonition that I have
something that I feel
will be revealed
when you finally accept that I'm your Neil

I wanna be your Neil
yeah baby I really wanna be your Neil
Girl I wanna be your Neil
oh darling I really wanna be your Neil
Cut you deal
cook you a meal
make you squeal
i wanna be your fuckin Neil
Track Name: Grade 9 Girl's Dream
Sitting getting ready for a date
you’re sitting getting ready for a date
it’s your first one and you can hardly wait
It was a grade nine girl's dream

Get a ride to the concert from his mom
your gonna get a ride to the concert from his mom
there ain’t no problem with her taggin along
It was a grade nine girl's dream

You were gonna to see
Robert Plant with Franco Stilleta
You were very attracted to his puka shell necklace yes you were
and he had even frosted his tips so he would look better
It was a grade nine girl's dream

Franco buys you candy and a drink
Oh Franco buys you candy and a drink
you're so worked up that you can hardly think
It was a grade nine girl's dream

He's handing you your ticket by the door
yes he's handing you your ticket by the door
he might try to hold your hand but he better not try much more
It was a grade nine girl's dream

You were gonna to see
Robert Plant with Franco Stilleta
You were very attracted to his puka shell necklace yes you were
and he had even frosted his tips so he would look better
It was a grade nine girl's dream
Track Name: Cynthia
Birds of feather
two in a cage
on a page

I'll go to sleep when you tell me
I'll go to sleep when you want
everything I have got is gone in the night
but everything will be alright

Think of a medley
think of a tune
little loon

We play our tiny sonata
we play it all out of key
this testament to tragedy wakes up in the night
but everything will be alright

Cynthia you’re a million people under the sun
everyone
You glue the pieces together
you set your heart in stone
to tell yourself you're not alone

And you're gone in the night
but everything will be alright
Yes you're gone in the night
but everything will be alright
Track Name: Madeline
When I first met you I thought you were a good girl
thought you the type of girl who’s just lookin for love
but now I know the darkness lyin in your heart
but you could still deceive me with
a kiss on the lips for just a little bit

Oh Madeline
you do this to me almost everytime
you disconnected my internet
and now I'm gettin kinda tired of it
it's so important to me
Madeline
the first few times well I didn't mind
Oh Madeline
won't you be mine
Madeline

I think about that time we went out to the movies
you took off your shoes and threw them both at the screen
and I remember the time I introduced you to my best friend
Well I was not entirely impressed
when you issued a threat
that you’d stab him in the neck

Oh Madeline
you do this to me almost everytime
you burn my house down with your cigarette
and now I'm gettin kinda tired of it
it's so important to me
Madeline
the first few times well I didn't mind
Oh Madeline
won't you be mine
Madeline

Well the more that I see you
the more that I question
the status of your mental stability
and if I'm being honest, girl you totally scare me
but you could still deceive me with
a kiss on the lips
for just a little bit

Oh Madeline
you do this to me almost everytime
you creep up on me with a tourniquet
and though I'm gettin kinda tired of it
you're so important to me
Madeline
the first few times well I didn't mind
Oh Madeline
Oh won't you be mine
Madeline
won't you be mine
Madeline
Track Name: Enemy
I don't want to be here
rather be sittin at home
I don't want to see them
while I'm out on my own

I'm gonna get mine soon as i can
watch the starving children bite the hand
am I monkey or am I man
maybe the enemy of the century

I don't want to see her
walkin around with him
I don't want to be there
in the state I'm in

I'm gonna get mine soon as i can
watch the starving children bite the hand
am I monkey or am I man
maybe the enemy of the century
Track Name: Soul Brevity
Portaits fadin
hangin on a vanity wall
the frames all gettin dusty
Feelin like I'm barrellin over the falls
don't ask you gotta trust me
All these questions bubblin up
think I better just save my time

Watches tickin mechanism ain't skippin a beat
deep down somethins happenin
Look at whats goin on inside of a tree
them rings always sappenin
All these questions bubblin up
I think I better just save my time

For another event
oh so very divine
Yeah a couple of blonde girls
two at the same time
Well thats not what I meant
but don't you worry your mind
Just let it marinate and soon you will find
I'm just savin time
Track Name: She is Music
She is music
she is sound
she's a melody whenever she's around
She is laughter
she is song
she's a mystery with words that don't belong

How could a love like this ever die?
There ain't no reason
no answer to why
this thing is so
but now you know

She is music
she is sound
she's a melody whenever she's around
She is laughter
she is song
she's apparently just stringin' me along

How could a love like this ever die?
There ain't no reason
no answer to why
this thing is so
but now you know

She is music
she is sound
she's a melody whenever she's around
She is laughter
she is song
she's the only one who ever did me wrong

She is music
she is sound
she's a melody whenever she's around
She is laughter
she is song
she's a mystery with words that don't belong
Track Name: Lunartic
I’m all out of luck
spent it all too soon
There's a man in the sky in the moon

I’m not in on the joke
I'm an alien
only drifting along til the end my friend

Everything on fire
get it if you can
but the fire will thwart your plans

And like the secret words
hidden in this tune
There's a man in the sky in the moon
Track Name: Follow the Road
Early to morning
lately to rise
Sun is shinin
blastin into her eyes

Board up the key, swallow the door
you remember the night before
Have a drink, follow the road
to the stories that can't be told

Little lady
lookin good on the street
Somethin suspicious
squirmin round at her feet

Step onstage, man of the hour
you're receiving your golden shower
Have a drink, follow the road
to the stories that can't be told

Little monsters
hidin under the stairs
Hope nothing of value
can be found under there

Board up the key, swallow the door
you remember the night before
Have a drink, follow the road
to the stories that can't be told

Step onstage, man of the hour
you're receiving your golden shower
Have a drink, follow the road
to the stories that can't be told
Track Name: Hondisp Teeth Problem
Things nobody knows
memories unfold
A thousand islands glistening
in the hall of heads
The lights turn red

Teeth are falling out
rattling about
Light a final cigarette
put it to your mouth
Bile comes spilling out

Following the liar
straight into the fire
Ordinary citizens will become the pyre
The flame inspires

Speechless holding hands
salivary glands
ooze a pastelike chemical
just the paste they need
floss till their gums bleed

eat your vitamin C to protect your teeth
