Track Name: Molehills
Molehills

You in the middle
of these people
and you want to know yourself
before everybody else

Rain on molehills
fox in a trap
with its flesh exposed to air
in a sanctuary park

Silence is gold fish
waterfalls keep coming
marvelous these molehills
can't keep them down

And you want to know yourself
before everybody else
Track Name: Everywhere You Go
Everywhere You Go

Everywhere you go
your eyes can tell
where you have been
where you're heading
heaven is a place
the fighters go
knocking the fists
so much better

Nothing to decide
the hangman's rope
hanging a quest
for the better
bleeding on a rock
the time we saw
didn't connect
with our pleasure

Reason is a game
our fathers' home
when will you play
off the measures
jumping on a map
a fire runs
helps me elect
to the better

where you have been
you don't know
Track Name: The Hurricane
The Hurricane

Down said the hurricane
and so we did
no secrets left in here
now did we stay?

Don't waste your thoughts
on the next day
show me the mall
the animal park
don't choke back screams
we're gone away

Bring down a razor blade
take off my clothes
shave all my hair off, dear
I'm not the same

Don't waste your thoughts
on the next day
show me the lamb
the tangerine trees
ruthless the wind
we're gone
Track Name: 2811 California Street
2811 California Street

When a fire burns it burns
when desire turns and turns

I'm at 2811 California Street
did you catch that train?

When the steamboat yells and yells
when the pending rain don't fall
Track Name: Don't Talk
Don't Talk

Too much perfume
lips too soft
eyes so big I must
look up
maybe some day
I will know
what's keeping me
here with you

The grass is greener
when you smile
when you look at me
when I try
oh tomorrow
don't show up
now we rest
and now we fuck
Track Name: It's Alright Heart
It's Alright Heart

Yes I have been sane
as a mirror
you learn to look like brains
what's a body?

It's alright heart
you are real
it's alright heart

We aim and forget
evolution
we're animals in pain
for no reason

It's alright heart
you are real
it's alright heart
you are here

Higher speed is the goal
say the addicts
what's the need of goals?
are your eyes closed?
No step too tall
more important:
NOTHING IS TOO SMALL
can't you see it??

It's alright heart...
Track Name: Take It!
Take It!

What would you do
if you were up
up in the morning
before the day gets glue

Give up your couch
forget your address
walk on the sunrise
and be weightless at noon

and just take it! take it!
all you want
take it! take it!
where you want
no one to tell you
the measures of life

Take the road
to a place where the winds
still smell of thunder
sweep predictions away

so you can take it! take it!
all you want
take it! take it!
where you want
take it! take it!
all you want
take it! take it! take it! take it!

Grow down
where surveillance stops

Take it!...

Grow down
where the monkeys blow

Take It!...
Track Name: Why Two?
Why Two?

Birds can have puppies
milk can ride the wind
from my green mountain
I can pull strings

Dots and huge palm trees
break me up in two
one that climbs forever
one that's close to you
why two? why two?
Track Name: Flight AA71
Flight AA71

the first time when all my limbs were sleeping
the first time an aeroplane was lifting
the first time the entire globe was covered with ice

the first time an aeroplane was crashing
the first time I wore a pair of glasses
the first time the summer didn't end before March

the first time when both my arms were broken
the first time a parachute would open
the first time you pulled off the wings from a fly

the first time a man was seen with X-ray
the first time a robot held a baby
the first time a boy saw the stars from a boat

the first time a cannibal was eating
the first time a scientist was dreaming
the first time when fireworks were filling the sky

the first time I let up and die
the first time I let up and die
the first time I let up and die

the first time you don't miss a flight
the first time you don't miss a flight
the first time you don't miss a flight
