Osprey 05:46
Osprey Walking over last Saturday Saw an osprey in the sky Don’t know what he’s even doing there Or why he cries How many fish did you catch today How’s your wife And the young ones in the nest You’re doing it right All the waters rushing down the mountain Heading for the falls Making it so much easier for us all Laying down ripples on your back Naked and laughing in the rapids Fast asleep down at the round out The tide moving towards your ride Saw a flickering through the window The empress upside down inside Pay attention to what you saw There in the dawning light Clean your workspace, fix up the lair It’s time to take flight All the waters rushing down the mountain Heading for the pond Making it that much easier for us all Laying down ripples on my back Naked in the laughing rapids All I ever wanted all I ever need Is just to feel your life And to share it with the world Even the ones that bite

Kyll Time 04:44
Kyll Time What said you to the vibe on the ocean What said you to the vibe on the hill Eternity quietly rushing And you ain’t got time for the kill Your mom moved to Costa Rica Your dads gotta a new young wife It’s five years you’ve been upstate Still something ain’t quite right Whatcha did you truck, what you trying to truck? Whatcha did you truck, what you trying to truck? Whatcha did you air, whatcha did you err? Whatcha did you breathe, what’s it gonna be? Your busier now than ever And the days all strobe by Pain tilts you towards appreciation And you still have your carving knives The times before the career called With the grain, the edge of the eye Dig and turn in relief cut and supplicate We laughed and looked up towards the divide Whatcha did you truck, what you trying to truck? Whatcha did you truck, what you trying to truck? Whatcha did you air, whatcha did you err? Whatcha did you breathe, what’s it gonna be? All night running away from it Crashed out out the moon She stood still as a stone while the sun kissed the open wound Night fell called the car and off she went Trust yourself not to tell Raven, wolverine, and woman Masks that made the mind Amplify and trace exclusivity Customs once shared far and wide What you cannot believe You will not see intertwined Brought you back through the eastern door Now I’m chewing on the inside of a thigh Whatcha did you truck, what are you trying to truck? Whatcha did you truck, what are you trying to truck? Whatcha did you air, whatcha did you err? Whatcha did you breathe, what’s it gonna be?

Starlight Lanes You gave up the fight Before I could meet you there And make it right You didn’t have to be alone They planted six thousand trees In this neighborhood zone The concrete now feels comfortable in the heat And there are players here And there are people who have given up the game And there are pretenders and there’s Starlight Lanes We were bowling on a summer night Way out in the country, looked like 1979 The place held shadows you could keep coyote skins on the wall Staring without mercy, at all of the deceit in it all They got rowdy in the bar room I could smell the blood that had been shed Be the one who needs forgiving At Starlight Lanes You can’t expect to sleep With another mans wife And not get killed with a bowie knife If you don’t raise them right There’s nothing you can keep Strife rhymes with traumatizing Some people will take love over comfort Some people will take pain over love Blame will get you nowhere You can’t put the blood back in the dove At Starlight Lanes Let me get you home safely I said through the noise You said to leave you there You don’t need that choice There can be a perfect end to every beginning I’ll see what I can find down at Winn Dixie There is danger in hatreds’ greedy eyes You can make the sad compromise At Starlight Lanes

On The Way 03:56
On The Way Did you hear what she said Did you here what she said Did you hear what she said to you? On the way to falling On the way to bliss On the way to falling into this Take a look at the leaves flying in the sky Take look at her standing by Hold onto that feeling though harrowing Hold onto that knowing of your ancestry The thunder brings it from the west Brings the water that renews the chest What kind of love is gathering? springing upwards, servicing A wild loving for the heat A wild loving that’s for keeps I saw you looking across the street Saw you looking seeing me Since I’m leaving anyway I’m calling out to you Don’t, don’t you forget me Remember what I’ve said to you Sometimes you won’t believe it But you’ve got to push on through Feel the strength in the dragons feet Puzzling at the geometry The leather’s black the wings beat Got you covered it’s my treat Where you going? Where you been? Where you going? Where you been? Did you hear what she said Did you here what she said Did you hear what she said to you? On the way to falling On the way to bliss On the way to falling into this

Happy 03:43
Happy I was happy when I found you I was happy when I found you Now theres not a lot to do All these dreams are gonna come true Theres a storm about to blow through And the rivers gonna flood too Gonna swim across the chute Through standing waves and roots The ripening of the hard fruit The mole and the smoked root You calmed the horse to trust you Now you’ve got four legs to move There’s a place we like to go to You showed me when I met you It reminds us we’ve got work to do A responsibility to Stepping backwards into an early grave Then fast forward till I’m in your arms again Take off your makeup pull down the shades It’s always better when you wait I was happy when I found you I was happy when I found you

More Everyday I love you more everyday I’m telling you There’s no need for me to not be true The ocean’s your daughter Gonna jump right in the water Feel all these problems disappear Slowed my heart to a camoed wavelength near Gliding over the reef with a handmade spear Gonna bring some home tonight Friends and lovers eyes so bright The fire never drifts too far from here Survivors of our age we’re kicking ass On the backstreets and in the grass They presented the groomed and tame We made our own separate way Drying in the sun above the plains When that sun goes down the colors match the ground A great expanse opens up the hatch Calling us we’re coming down W’re going up, we’re coming round Tapped into a morphic resonance I love you more everyday I’m telling you Theres no need for me to not be true The ocean is your daughter Gonna jump right in the water Feel all these problems disappear

Standing Rock We got to get off of it Let us get off of it We want to get off of it Let us get off of it When will it end? Start divesting Generations of genocide Still on a horse we ride You’re pulling out the oil Then you put it back in Into to the air we breath Into the sacred water Militarized police Sent to remove my people For a pipeline that will leak You’re destruction is not cheap We’re on our way to Standing Rock Show the man we’ve had enough Same desert tan armored trucks It’s you who are the terrorists

Boy Awakening Who was that boy awakening? What was that golden dream And the gifts that he woke upon The joy bursts through the seams Time can make you older Time can make you lean We’re all of the water It’s a holy place it seems 
 It’s a long way to daylight It’s the shortest line of fire It’s a long way to daylight It’s the shortest line of fire And the eve she comes dressing the pilgrims' for their homes’ and the gardens they are falling down over the phone In the door she wandered With legs long and strong The mists’ lonely daughter staring me down And once I was a little boy Sailed upon the sea Didn’t have any anchor but the wind cared for me That’s my momma and that’s my dream We’re all a part of this golden mean It’s a long way to daylight It’s the shortest line of fire It’s a long way to daylight It’s the shortest line of fire And the eve she comes dressing the pilgrims for their homes’ and the gardens they are falling down over the phone

Timbuktu 05:45
Timbuktu All the way to Timbuktu I was thinking about you And the flames we leapt over The creek ran the birds hollered Our eyes were so much wider And the fire crackled up your spine The moose called out from the North Stampeding towards your door On the loose with a truce you better let him in The quartz quarry sounding bright In the middle of the night Baskets full of corn and watermelon All the way to the palace Banging on your front door Moving northward through the galaxy You gave it all for the cause I took some for me and I took some for you And it felt like we were being worked through Guided by the flex of a smile You were leaning on a round table Unwrapped well hung cable You husked the corn and took a bite That night they abandoned the casino Not enough revenue The next day it all went down The whole condo blew as she sang Glass flying horizontally The halls were long they couldn’t run away Scrubbing rocks in the desert wind You lose your will you lose the game Sit out and sour Or pool your darkness down into town The skies will be more clear and luminous I heard some banging in the trees I saw the unlucky ones on their knees A man in a pinstriped suit seemed to be conducting They thought we’d be inside But I knew the way to hide Back behind the falls and into the caves We stayed three days until they were gone Nestled close you kept me warm Sewed me up and kissed the wounds I felt come completely new I know you felt that way too In our packs were the rescued heirlooms All the way to your palace Banging on your front door Moving northward through the galaxy Gave it all for the cause Have you forgiven him his sins Have you let him back in Back into mercifully pasture To the place of giving tree I remember you and you remember me Oh I remember Bobby Jean
