Track Name: Pony
en route to the city of my birth
i lie on the back bench
and spot a rainbow in every cloud
in every skidmark a car crash
is it enough to forget the love
i had and lost
well i guess that depends

loose energies surrounding me
i send them off with good will
i’m thinking suck me in
through the gap in your teeth
but you just stare
tilt your head
triple libra grin
unshine your engagement ring
i’m honest, been lying to you since the beginning
Track Name: Ghost
i met you in a place call hope
only ten years old
you dug a hole
in a hollow mirror
to be the first to know
just how it feels
to be invisible
do you believe in ghosts?

can’t be fooled?
obey the anchor man
work on your summer tan
burn to a crisp again
go pop confetti bombs
celebrate where you’re from while it’s still here

i saw your laughings
in neon gold rain
they glittered gold
on halloween
and the night before
the moon eclipsed
and you disappeared

i saw your laughings
in neon gold rain
on video eight tape
how it glittered gold
and holland will be the first to know
just how i feel
Track Name: Notre Belle
you and your moments of peace
i won’t tell you to give in
delight in the simple world we’re living in
until you fall back into the old familiar past
Track Name: For Egon
so you found me outside in the rain
that was pouring from a rain-making device
not unlike the ones they used to use in hollywood movies
or photoshoots
now that’s all gone there's only youtube and cute bird breeds
you’ll never see in real life
and that’s all right
let cyber collision warm you tonite

so you found me inside of a screen
singing like that bird you’d never seen
with shiny clothes and neon gold rainbow colored hair
how dare you stare

if it weren’t for contingencies
like ice cream, open-airs, and ecstasy
we’d never have met
at least not probably i mean there’s still the odd chance
but i’m getting carried away
my point is that it’s amazing
that, and how we met
and i’m thankful every day



now i’ve turned the page again
there’s nothing there
but wait, let’s build up some suspense

“why r u so cold”
you been sleeping all alone again
soon i’ma come home
equally rich with love and devotion and
currencies with which we can spend weeks in bed
ordering vietnamese or pizza with soft drinks whenever we like
we’ll live like queens
and that ain’t the best of it
i want a kid
but wait — not yet —
no worries
i just love you lots, that’s all babe
and i miss every funking pore of your dark skin
darling

so you found me inside of a screen
singing like that bird you’d never seen
with shiny clothes and neon gold rainbow colored hair
how dare you stare

if it weren’t for contingencies
like ice cream, open-airs, and ecstasy
we’d never have met
at least not probably i mean there’s still the odd chance
but i’m getting carried away again
Track Name: Kikayon
a snakebite
a fake charm
beach fries
and ring pops
sharks in
specials ops
and what was that?
you got some
sand stuck
between your teeth?
ritas rides
shotgun
when she lonely and we cruisin along

the ocean
opens up
a blue whale gulps
and swallows us
down below
something glows
that nimrod jonah with his nimbus gold
the lemonade
turns luke-warm
a deep echo bounces off the belly walls
“have you seen
the kikayon?"
"it think i saw it floating in the plankton"





i bite the straw
as we’re coughed up
swirling thru a hairy jaw
that gold tooth
gleams bright
as if to tell us love was in the sea tonight
back up above
a raucous storm
we wash upon
a purple shore
the lemonade
now ice cold
tastes better than ever before
time to use
that wishing star
black beard gave us with a filthy burp
beware
it only works
when used by a pure heart or broken soul

whale don’t call forever
i know it’s true
