Lyrics

INDONESIA ants they walk in single file too
for half a day or half a mile
would be like half the world for me and you
birds they dream of fame and fortune too
and I dream I can fly with my closed eyes
well maybe with the next pair I see through

sunrise in her face
be soon to see a night
fall in from space
Indonesia

fish forget each other’s first names too
better yet perhaps they never had them
you say no one does but man you do
and ants they walk in single file too
for half a day or half a mile
and that’s like half the earth for me and you

sunrise in her face
be soon to see a night
fall in from space
Indonesia

and I’ll believe it
when I first see it
and I’ll believe it
when I first hear it
and I’ll believe it
when I first feel it

EXCUSES/OPINIONS
I cannot explain myself to my demons no more
Excuses, they keep spilling out of my face down to the floor

And the old train tracks will soon be below the bay
That old shell beach will soon be below the bay
A month is a minute and a year is another day
And those old train tracks will soon be below
Or so they say

I cannot restrain myself from my devils no more
Opinions, they keep stumbling out out of my face on out the door

And you remind me of somebody I’ve met before

WILD GUESS
Lonesome days may they stay away
You’ve been sitting here wondering what to say
You lost yourself in the cedar trees
The sky rolled over you could hear it breathe

You ain’t safe with me
Just take a wild guess and get away it’s easy

Got some time or some time to kill
You tell yourself lies just to feel the thrill
Serpent dreams in a restless sleep
You can hold them close but they’re not yours to keep

You ain’t safe with me
Just take a wild guess and get away it’s easy

And I ain’t safe with you
You’ve got the eyes of a billionaire in a burning room

STANDSTILL
I might be alone staring at the ceiling
but I’m takin’ my time savoring this feeling
some people they want it all, but all they want is the word
Just take in the time as it comes and it goes in a blur
Stand still
And I will stand still too
thinkin’ bout friends off to big cities
yeah they’re growin’ up but still little babies
can you remember it all like the rise and the fall
of the sea?
you might be alone but I could tell you need some company
Stand still

JAGO
Overhead
Beneath a half-Sun
Howling a song
Jago winding down a valley
black stray from the mountain

Midnight color
in the sky tells me why I ain’t sleeping
Unreal how it’s realistic this
Arctic July

Ever in that Old ground
Lone meanderer
and Every where she roams
Bones and antlers

Overhead
Beneath a half-sun gravity’s gone
Jago canine caught a sound and a scent by the river
found me beaten by the North Country weary and lost
Stillness
is that golden hour lasting all Summer
Couldn’t move if I tried like stone and amber

Ever in that old ground
Lone meanderer
and every Where she roams
Bones and antlers
Wild and so strange
Jago call me by name So bay dog, bay

THE LADDER When the high tides hit the homeland
And the mountains drink the sky
I’ll be drinking myself and dreaming of you
While the ghosts under pavement whistle their tunes

I’ve got no problem remembering the good times
oh they’re still coming, as long as we’re young
and the hours don’t pass all too fast or too slow
where do they go? Does it matter?
I’m your ladder
Just let me know

when you wake up
put 2 and 2 together
Put on a record and fill your cup
All the chips on all the shoulders
In this modern world are we in a rush to get older?

Well I have no reason to try and impress you
To try to be clever or cool
From my window the highway sounds like the ocean
So I don’t mind breaking the rules
it don’t matter
Let it shatter
Just let it go
An ocean and a highway and a ladder I dream

PAPERSOUL
I don’t know but I’ve been told
My soul’s worth paper
If so I’ll sell it later
Not this time
Feeling fine

Stranger, are you strange too?
Stranger, what can I do?

I don’t know but I’ve been told
My soul’s worth paper
If so I’ll sell it later
Not this time
Feeling fine

I’ve been told but I don’t know
Can’t help but wonder
were you my favorite summer?
Lost in time my divine stranger

are you strange too?
Stranger, what can I do?

SOMETHING LIKE COLOR TV
there’s animation in my head
something like color TV
there’s animation in my head
pretending to be what I see

big yellow lemon in the sky
raining juice into my room
from up there so very high
it’s understood I’ll be there soon
I know I know I’ll be there soon

there’s animation in my head
heart is anchored to the vein
spider caught up in the web
my consciousness is my pain

It won’t be long ‘til I belong
in this clay that I consume
once was lost but now I’m gone
it’s understood I’ll be there soon
I know I know I’ll be there soon

CACHOEIRA
vai, Cachoeira
se for,
vou também
Com certeza
saudade pro além
Sabe que amo bem
vai, Cachoeira
Se for, vou também
Com certeza
saudade do além

TIME IS A RISING TIDE
What could i say now
what could i say?
Lying in my bed of poppies
you feel so far away

I wonder why the train stopped here
This is not my home
The air’s so fucking cold out there
You better close that window

Open ends and loosened ties
Count the questions in your mind
Slow infection grows inside
Eyes are open mind is fried

Time is a rising tide
We’ll be underwater soon

SATURATED / THE DUNES
One cold day when you’re old and grey
you’re gunna wish you’d said
words that you thought but could not say
Some wam night when you’re all alone
you’re gunna realize the disguise was just skin and bone

So the grass is green every other side
in a saturated and jaded state of mind

But if you ever give yourself a chance to love your self
you’ll be ready for someone else

ain’t it a mystery?
it’s like the bottom of the sea

I was thinking so much
Couldn’t tell if i was thinking at all
Days they passed by so fast
and the nights were at a crawl
on the dunes, watching wide eyed sun and moon
Never felt so alive
so I closed my lids to see
Just what I looked like from inside
