waiting on a box of mud to bring you to your knees trying to push without a shove a handless glove in a tree bring the hammer down i can't feel a thing my wings are cracking and the telephone rings in my ear softly say, "hey man, there's nobody here" get a flashlight make that duck you do waiting on a box of mud arms crossed impatiently go out and paint the town and scream what you feel get a flashlight make that duck you do just for old times' sake you be me i'll be you

rearing its head slow chimera lingers tingles in your toes how could we be wooed from such a brooding state? circulation's on your doorstep Sleeper's in the vcr stoic cat upon your lampshade certified in cpr I've got two limbs for both of you but one must suffice I'd like to pull a Genghis Khan but it wouldn't be right circulation's on your doorstep Sleeper's in the vcr stoic cat upon your lampshade certified in cpr in vain I wish I was a surgeon to part these entangled loves never had so much white rain accustomed to the desert plains siamese count on me to muddy up new history come and go as you please my house is your house and this key (unlocks everything) when might the wave break? when can I come up? how to escapist endeavors engage? and when the wave breaks and the sun's up I'll gasp like a fish on the opposite page

I'd be your dog if you'd have me walk me round the block I can see I'm barking up the wrong tree just can't make it stop I'd be your boy if you take me home take me to your bed spin me like a meter on and on and on jumbled up my head been digging this hole for many years gotta tune my ears to a different frequency I stopped believing in the weight of the world it's a recurring dream unrequited surely deserve it for the ant that I've been uninvited an accident on the scene I'll be your nothing now forever bored staring at the clock waiting for my exit scene to leave the floor I'm a writer not a rock the love of the world is an irrelevant thing we're pretending impermanence of our thoughts and our dreams rings ascending weight of the world is a recurring dream unrequited surely deserve it for the ant that I've been uninvited

this happened once before to a little me wearing neon jeans it's too potent to ignore this place of youthfulness and green machinery head down speeding fast through the roller rink in a brown paper sack I got a flea market link you were never my baby just a fourth rate love affair you were never my baby just a fourth grade love affair proclamation maybe me rotten apple to the core knock em down and stop their hearts before they hit the floor no I'll never make my bed and lay in it truth and lies and love and hate are only in your pretty head in your fat head in your stubborn head in your dreamer's head you were never my baby just a fourth grade love affair you were never my baby just a fourth rate love affair proclamation maybe

wheelies in wheelchairs hardwood floor scuffed we own the moves if kind hands and holder bring the buzz minus abuse air sucking boulders rolling down clenched molars can a pacifist make love to a fisticuffs struck dumb and still remain with his cause? outside warm in the whiskey sun leading the troops spotted broken fools with bleeding hearts crying, "martyr martyr souls on fire" Joan of Arc is rolling over I'm sure guess it comes natural to some takes a pity gallon to make them down guess it comes natural to some takes a pity gallon to make them come can a pacifist make love to a fisticuffs struck dumb and still remain with his cause? could you stop that screaming? it's just that ears are steaming hot it's not the passion I mind

I can't tell you why or how or where or if the weather's fair cause I'm a regal son I'm so fake noir from the mouths of babes comes a deep black tar from my inverted projectors you can see that I'm not this man's protector we're just killing time with the governor's strange conjecture drinking his wine eating bakeries' sweet confections in the fields of gold where the whistling blows a bed of onyx foam and a paper hat float I wear many hats I can't draw the line my point is not fine

I got a ticket I gotta go to a one man show white picket fences and a lackluster roll call here but I'm not into it free of biting mighty wit change the players change the man of many faces furrowed brows descending wasted on the crowd it's best to leave before the arms produce a toss you're all vaudeville you're all tapped out pending erasure with your countenance so stout you're hear but you're not into it void of real experience put on layers change the plan of many faces furrowed brows descending wasted on the crowd it's best to leave before the arms produce a toss dinosaur of entertainment you're just a dinosaur of entertainment

happiness careening down your brow speak easy simply view the rusty hue of breezy reeds decked out in dew a simple standard to undo given a chance to see yourself quantified are you qualified do you measure up shall we blink? snowflakes falling it's a ticker tape parade you're the one they're celebrating you're the one anticipated face the consummate king bearer divine grace if it's too hot in the kitchen get out of the state shoot me an adage flick of the wrist of savior's cape given a chance to see yourself quantified are you qualified do you measure up shall we blink? has the revolution brought you to your knees?

the sun it shines on you if only brief its radiance rings true not all the darkness swept away not all the weight is taken but the day remains as does the fact the reaction is up to you I can attest half empty full on is the fool soothe me my moon in hand darling bring me to heel my hot gut is reeling let it slide let me bide let it slide sweet goddess let me bide my time i never asked for your light just don't hit me when i'm down in the brights the sun it shines on you if only brief its radiance rings true not all the darkness swept away not all the weight is taken but the day remains
