Track Name: Parowan Gap
Mysterious petroglyphs
Fifteen second shooting star
Ghosts live in this hidden passage
And science reminds you how small you really are

I'm trying to sleep...
Your gods keep breathing down my neck
Your gods keep breathing down my neck
Your gods keep breathing down my neck
Your gods keep breathing down my neck
Your gods keep breathing down my neck
Neck neck neck neck neck neck neck neck
Neck
Neck
Neck

Neck
Track Name: Block Party
All blocked: barriers put up
And there's beer in my cup to beat the heat
Look out! Some tanks are approaching
The crowds are encroaching
This is my street

The neighbor next door
Comes back from the store
He's bringing the buns
And a couple guns
Ice cold lemonade
And a dozen grenades...

Don't infiltrate our block party
It's our block party - you go away!
Don't complicate our block party
It's our block party - you go away!

Hot grill is totally cooking
And when you're not looking I'll steal your wine
Hot coals - I think are all that's left
Long after they street swept and found our mines

The house where I stay
Is across the way
Where I keep my stuff
Till enough's enough
Then I'll start the spree
And take y'all with me...

Don't infiltrate our block party
It's our block party - you go away!
Don't complicate our block party
It's our block party - you go away!
Track Name: Valerian
I lie alone - my heart's a drone testing my soul
The beating drum until I'm numb - until I'm too old
To make it matter or…

I take the blur - sour tincture testing my brain
Will it consume my fear and gloom?
Can it contain unsolid matter or…?

Lift my clouds and make nice sounds that take you
Lift my arms and speak the charms that break you
Lift my clouds and make nice sounds that take you
Lift my arms and speak the charms that break you

Oh give me a sign...
Track Name: Field of Fingers
Get the bolt cutters
These little stubs dangle
Out of practice: weak weak weak WEAK WEAK
They don't do anything I need them to
So let's fertilize the ground with my rigid digits
Maybe next year the fresh crop
Will be more dexterous if not just nutritious

Because deep down I know
Everything I am is worm food
If not now then later
Might as well give the grubs something to chew on
And I can behold their gratitude while I'm still alive
Because these fingers are useless to me
Here you go maggots: Enjoy!
Track Name: Narrows
Thousand feet of sand
Compressed in time, now are walls
Closing in on us
Track Name: Crayolaphobia
Black is here - do not fear
Flood the world with waxy night
Dull the glare of paper white

What we bleed - is it green?
Names you can't identify
Scratch your head and question why

Red is not always hot
The primaries are never true
Just ask her - she slept with blue

I want my colors to be different
Let it go

I've got a crayon in my pocket
Let it go
Track Name: Fraidy
I'm an old man - there's no question - but there's doubt
I thought I'd couldn't feel this way again
Well, wasn't I beyond this?
I'm revealed: a worthless specimen

I'm not a shining star example
Apparently I can't control myself
But that's okay 'cuz neither can you

I had that dream where I am standing in a room
With wide eyes sitting staring back at me
I tried to formulate an answer
Tried to speak
But words that failed me my whole life
So why not here?

Why must I still uphold a better standard?
Who will I let down if I fall apart?
I want to drown inside that crystal ocean
I want to live...
Track Name: Cottonwood Canyon Road
So here I am in this forgetful place
I have no cause or will to leave a trace
I'm sorry but there's my heart
In silence I will depart

It happens that I am much older now
But I could make it back to home somehow
Don't worry and please don't wait
I won't be back early or late
The sun will take me alone...

And dry my bones... Drying my bones...
Track Name: Vector
I walk briskly down the sidewalk
It's precious, my time
People all in my way
Traveling in a non-straight line

I can't read your mind
I'm no aura inspector
When walking around me
Be a predictable vector

I don't blame your cell phone
I'm just blaming you
Technology doesn't make you a jerk
You do
Track Name: Wikimemoriam
Scan prog rock heroes
Didn't know so many died
Guess that wasn't news
Track Name: Sneeze
I have two watery eyes
But I'm not about to cry
I I I I I denied
Then I suddenly inhale
About to send some s-mail
Ah ah ah ah ah ah fail

Oh man not according to plan
I am damn damn damn damn damn damn damn damned!

I have a knot in my chest
But not cardiac arrest
T t t t t t test
I have a frog in my throat
Or maybe it is a stoat
Or or or or or a goat

Can't tell - am I under a spell?
Am I un un un un un un unwell?
Hell!

I just had some spicy soup
And some kind of herbal goop
I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm I'm duped
My friend said maybe it's dust
I'm not sure what I should trust
B b b b b b but

I wheeze with an awesome unease
Can I pl pl pl pl pl pl pl please...
Sneeze!
