Track Name: Riverside
Can you see me now
giggling from the clouds
with your wet old heart

Can you read me now
cheering through the shroud
with your cones laid out

The only thing that I can do
water the grains you grew
open up my eyes and try
to lay more down
lay them down
lay them down

Be listening on the riverside
(have time to)
feed the fishes near my hand
(aaah)
if someone comes and needs my help
(I'll try and)
I'll lay them down
lay them down
lay them down
Track Name: Crow
There's a crow at my window
and it keeps me up all night
lays tacks at my doorstep

And it asks me questions
shapes them inside its beak
sharp and lessening

Taps at my sill
skins me if I sleep
cries in the morning

And I go to the forest
and it's hanging in the air
watching over

As the days are passing
and nights grow old with scorn
I stop listening
Track Name: Juggler
I started juggling
made it come true
blaming the weather
and a picture of you
Oh when you need it
there's always a chance
to start believing
in a bucket of fruit

Do what you do
what you do
do

You can come to my village
I'd make you mine
bake you pastry
carry you 'round
If you go to Alaska
if you go to Beirut
I'll just keep juggling
watch my bucket of fruit

Do what you do...
Track Name: Birds Don't Fly
Birds Don't Fly
Track Name: Blue
What your sisters
tell you is wrong, do
call me or raze me
give me strength
I'm blue

All my wishes
wonder around you
no sense know this
where you are I'm doped
Track Name: Break Out
You're looking like a dentist
giving regular smiles
strictly tied up
with a clean disguise
never letting out
what your eyes can't cry
but I like you

You're glued to the gutter
of your many screens
coughing out a laugh at things
you can't feel
talking like you're doing
all radio ads
but I like you

I kick you in the belly
you ain't gonna sleep
push you off the water bed
you don't need
dump you in the ocean
and you'll learn how to swim
because I like you

You're sitting there
waiting for the birds to hatch
never gonna bring you
anything but glass
burn the house kick the birds
run away
oh I like you
Track Name: Fat Eggs
Tugging me inside your covers for the night
I should be outside but I'm tired and I want you
letting you decide what bodies must do
my life's revolving round your fruit

Hungry as a wild hen picking me on the grass
hiding tying me pulling out what you need
surfing the waves, eggs stirred crazy
you eat me and ride me back to the prairie

The sky lights up and you are wailing
you swallow my mind and I am braindead
the planes are crashing but we're frying fat eggs
I burn your thighs and you tie a red noose
Track Name: Hanging
You will wake up one day
and you will laugh
I won't say anything
till then

Look at the glowing stars above your bed
I'll be away for only an hour
stay inside, you're dreaming
you're alive, you'll remember

The straps are way too tight
we cannot breathe
we need to close our eyes
and fly out

Look at the glowing stars...
Track Name: The Sun
Wake up
the sun
comes around
If you
step back
you're still close

Flowers
came up
through my head
When I
believe
oh

We slide home
we're loose
Tossed and bent
we're juice
flowing
