Glom 02:34
I got a lot of knowledge and healthy experience Got a lot of big ideas - creatively intense But my crappy work ethic defies good common sense A big box full of drawings and a dresser full of tapes All dusty in my basement plotting dangerous escapes Some call it lack of ambition - some call it sour grapes For all my insecurities I thank my dear old mom Instead of starting anything I glom! I glom! I glom! I wanna be successful I just don't know what to do Let me in your clubhouse and I'll prove I have a clue So I can flee rejection just by hiding behind you It's all very upsetting - whatever trip I'm on How do I make things happen? I glom! I glom! I glom!

Spot 04:22
Get another fire on - the day was so long but now it is gone Warm together by its light My arm is around and holding you tight I'm exhausted but I don't care We still have this spot to share Brilliant skies - close your eyes... Morning whispers in my ear The sun is awake - the distance is clear Our whole life is in our packs It's time to press on - someday we'll be back When exactly? I don't know Which way will the next wind blow These grains of sand - hand in hand?

Empty weekends by the stove Pointless morning rituals Empty boxes: calendar What the hell am I waiting for? Empty driveway, lonely curb Painted sign: "do not disturb" Empty promise, moldy bread Want to get the hell out of my head

Enterlude 02:52
The cranes they fill up the sky The city is ingrown - a modern miracle The space comes from within And now a shopping mall - a former DMZone The cranes are spinning around Pluck people from the east so the west could shove right in And enjoy cobblestone A bar, a cafe, too - neither are meant for you 'cuz it's mine It's mine - it's mine - it is mine - it's mine And you didn't have to kick it

Osedax 02:42
I'm a female tubeworm Living on the bottom of the ocean Clinging to the ribs of dead whale carcasses This is all I can eat... There are men living inside of me! There are men living inside of me! There are men living inside of me! There are men living inside of me!

Making Faces 02:16
The mirror lies to me - it lies right to my stupid face It give advice for free, not sympathy But something more like pain Without protective bubble wrapping The mirror laughs at me and I'm not in on the joke It giggles boastfully 'cuz it's not me It's just some special glass reflecting light in my direction The mirror goes to sleep whenever I'm not in the room And I prefer the way - don't talk, okay? You just might wake it up and I'll be drawn into its quarters

Return 02:28
Pulling off the highway on MacArthur Ave. Could not remember all the crap we have Backpack still plastered with mud We approach the household - spill out of the jeep Now surrounded by the stuff we keep Messages on the machine Don't turn on computer lest you check e-mail Why do I feel like I'm back in jail? Why am I so happy to be back home?

What did you expect? Nobody told you At the dirt road's end there is nothing Did you think there'd be a house? Some kind of landmark? So are your hopes dashed? I'm not sorry 'Cuz who decides where to put the plumbing in? And who decides where to place the traffic lights? What did you believe? Nobody taught you At the long life's end there is nothing Wanna leave a legacy? You're so important! Want to change the world in your lifetime? But who decides where to lay the green grass down? And who decides where to plant the apple tree? Who decides if it isn't up to you or me? What do you wish for now? Nobody saved you At the sermon's end there is silence Have escape in mind? Pathetic coward! Want to build a big bomb and destroy it instead? So who decides what to leave on your tombstone? Who decides when it's time to dig your bones? Who decides how the world will linger on? Who decides now that you are gone?
