daniel orlando I refuse to pick a favorite track, but if you're only going to listen to one song make it lower case.

cowboy jazz 02:17
not another day in this feral place i wanna go to the east side brighten my face take my ass away from this flat indulgent plane there's got to be another way to make a funny face there's got to be a better way to make a funny face hyperbole is just a place i go a phalange on my totem pole
animals 02:58
bears are back and broke in june in walks a dog with a man tattoo i must say i'm a little confused what you doing just hanging in the street i'm a sloth who'd you think you'd meet john titor in the southern heat everyone i've met has a spark a grizzly bear in their wild rampant heart a frantic rabbit that's running running through the dark i'm a deer that ain't been shot yet i'm running clear through my disappearing forest infinity is not for the best i get the drift that i might be off i seen a look and i heard a cough there's no animal that could make me stop
dixie cups 03:27
gimme i need it i finicky i need it want it no i don’t i can’t remember what i owe the world when there’s an air-conditioned jacket here use my license i don’t care have a drink have five while you’re there relax in your apartment imagine maid service talk shit sing a song to yourself about how much you love your fingers what kind of person names a neighborhood plantation kick all the bigots involved in organization i’ll have a smoke and be on my way through the heart of suburbia a flaccid day
marie 03:31
with shoes well-worn follow these steps into oblivion i miss your face your fists your shape but stay away from forlorn go where the sun is shining free from chains of binding the powers that be are no more last friday your birthday i saw you were walking little stone carvings my friends and i were talking about some kind of peace from the ether I felt in a dream it was neither naïve nor completely blown steam
lower case 01:48
i’ve seen the sun melt the night sky i’ve seen the deluge fall on the mightiest of mighty i ain’t seen no almighty i’ve seen the caps turn into lower case i’ve seen a polar bear with sad face loungin’ on the beach he ain’t seen no almighty heat bombs fall on you making you old news
spoon daddy 03:28
simple ways simple crimes simple people in a similar time a simple song so soothe and croon a miner’s tune left beneath the moon convincingly simple people with simple eyes when thought out loud composed surprise there will be no merit without first a doubt no room to build when you’re sold out and proud
