Trompe le Monde
Why do cupids and angels
Continually haunt her dreams
Like memories of another life
Is painted on her shirt in capital
Out on the free free way
There's only she an the they
Represented by the lights
We went to the store and bought something great
Which samples this song from washington state
Go
Go little record go
It is named by
Some guy named joe
And the words
Are the letters of the words
Said
Electrically played
For outer space and those of they who paid
This song is twice ocurred
And now it's time to go
Away on holiday.back to top
Planet of Sound
One fine day in my odd past
I picked me up a transmission
I turned the fission ignition
Went looking for the broadcaster
And when I first touched some ground
They simply told me leave
Was kind of hard to believe
'cause there was not one around
This ain't the planet sound
This ain't the planet sound
This ain't the planet sound
This ain't the planet sound
I had a talented wine
That land o' classical gas
And on the planet of glass
They sent me skipping through time
Igot to somewhere renowned
For it's canals and color of red
And lots of guys who shook their heads
Rhythmically to resound
This ain't the planet of sound
This ain't the planet of sound
This ain't the planet of sound
This ain't the planet of sound
This ain't no rock and roll town
This ain't no fuckin' around
This ain't no planet of sound
I met a guy in a rover
He said it's one more over
Its just there where your bound
This ain't the planet of sound
This ain't the planet of sound
This ain't the planet of sound
This ain't the planet of sound.back to top
Alec Eiffel
Pioneer of aerodynamics
(little eiffel, little eiffel)
They thought he was real smart alec
(little eiffel, little eiffel)
He thought big they called it a phallic
(little eiffel, little eiffel)
They didn't know he was panoramic
Little eiffel stands in the archway
(little eiffel, little eiffel)
Keeping low doesn't make no sense
Sometimes people can be oh so dense
They didn't want it but he built it anyway
(little eiffel, little eiffel)
Little eiffel stands in the archway
(little eiffel, little eiffel)
Keeping low don't make sense
Keeping low doesn't make no-sense
(little eiffel, little eiffel)
Little eiffel stands in the archway
Oh alexander I see you beneath
The archway of aerodynamics.back to top
The Sad Punk
I smell smoke
Taht comes from a gun
Named extintion
It was a long time ago
Could have happened to anyone
He was struck by a bullet
And he melted into fluid named extintion
One thousand miles an hour
I'm just like anyone
I want to feel
The road of tar beneath the wheel named extinction
And evolving from the sea
Would no be too much time for me
To walk beside you in the sun
I read something
About a son of a gun
Named extinction.back to top
Head On
As soon as I get my head around you
I come around catching sparks off you
I get an electric shock from you
This secondhand living just won't do
And the way I feel tonight
I could die and I wouldn't mind
And there's something going on inside
Makes you wanna feel
Makes you wanna try
Makes you wanna blow the stars from the sky
And I can't stand up
I can't cool down
I can't get my head off the ground
As soon as I get my head around you
I come around catching sparks off you
And all I ever got from you
Was all I ever took from you
Yeah, the world could die in pain
And I wouldn't feel no shame
And there's nothing holding me to blame
Makes you wanna feel
Makes you wanna try
Makes you wanna blow the stars from the sky
And I'm taking myself to a dirty part of town
Where all my troubles can't be found
I said yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
And I'm taking myself to a dirty part of town
Where all my troubles can't be found
Makes you wanna feel
Makes you wanna try
Makes you wanna blow the stars from the skyback to top
U-Mass
In the sleepy west ofthe woody east
Is a valley full, full o' pioneer
We're not just kids, to say the least
We got ideas to us that's dear
Like capitalist, like communist
Like lots of things you've heard about
And redneckers they get us pissed
And stupid stuff it makes us shout
Oh dance with me oh don't be shy
Oh kissme cunt and kiss me cock
Oh kiss the world oh kiss the sky
Oh kiss my ass oh let it rock
Of the april birds and the may bee
Oh baby
University
Of massachusetts, please
And here's the last five
It's educational
It's educational

Palace of the Brine
In a place they say is dead
In the lake that's like an ocean
I count about a billion head
All the time
There's a motion
Palace of the brine
I saw the cloning
Of the famous family
I heard the droning
In the shrine
Of the sea-monkey
Palace of the brine
Beneath reflections in the fountain
The starry sky and utah mountains
They are swimming happily
Can't you see
A life that's so sublime
Palace of the brine.back to top
Letter to Memphis
The day since I met her
I can't believe it's true
She came here from memphis
Across the ocean sailing
And I saw her a I pleaded
Why do you come so far and she said
Trying to get to you
How I tried to get you
Trying to get you
I'm sending a letter
I'll send it right to you
I'll send it to memphis
I know that someday
Everything I needed and I wanted
Used to be that my head was haunted
And all these sirens they make me mad
And all this violence it brings me down
I feel strong I feel lucky
Trying to get to you
Said I'm going to get to you
Trying to get to you.back to top
Bird Dream of the Olympus Mons
Speed leaving without
Warning
I need some place to sleep tonight
Blowing in the rocking of the pine
Speed leaving without warning
The sunlight is going
Into the mountain
I will crawl
Into the mountain
Sun shines in the rusty morning
Skyline of the olympus mons
I think about it sometimes
Sun shines in the rusty morning
Once I had a good fly
Into the mountain
I will fall.back to top
Space (I Believe In)
We needed something to move and fill up the space
We needed something this always is just the case
Jefrey with one f Jefrey took up his place
Sat on a carpet and with tablas in hand took up the chase

Jefrey with one f Jeffery

Now it occurred to me as he drove away
d = r x t

spacious
(he's so) spacious
space
(I believe in) space

Jefrey with one f Jeffery

Now I'm going to sing the Perry Mason theme

(he's so) spacious
spacious
(he's so) spacious
(he's so) spacious

Subbacultcha
This is a song about something there
There is something about this song
We did the clubs what ass
I was hoping to have her in the sack
I was looking handsome
She was looking like an erotic vulture
I was all dressed in black
She was all dressed up in black
Every thing was fine down here
What you call it here
Call it what you will here
Way down down down in this subbacultcha
Her warm white belly in the life I'd lived had seen nothing
Finer she shakes and she moves me or something
She's like jellyroll like sculpture
I was wearing eyeliner
She was wearing eyeliner
It was so good down here
Saving for my scrapbook here
Way down down down in this subbacultcha
Now we live on the sea and relax and ride the tack
Drug running on this panamanian schooner
She walks the deck in a black dress
And me I dress up in black
And we listen to the sea
And look at the sky in a poetic kind of way
What you call it
When you look at the sky in a poetic kind of way
You know when you grope for luna.back to top
Distance Equals Rate Times Time
Distance equals rate times time

I had me a vision
There wasn't any television
From looking into the sun
I'm looking into the sun
We got to think quick
Says the blind st. nick hey
From looking into the sun
Looking into the sun
We got to get some beer
We got no atmosphere
From looking into the sun
Looking into the sun
I had me a vision
There wasn't any television
From looking into the sun.back to top
Lovely Day
At the station, at the border an egression to the exterior law and order
Upward plantation
I remember your red dress
Like a field full o' poppy
You were making me dreamy
Stunned by a love got to do what your head says
Could not let it stop me
They got one leaving today
And it's going away
Got my feet in the stirrup
It can be kind of banal
But I dream of your red dress
Riding down these dry canals
Oh baby it's not europe
But I'm sending you money
I'm sending you lots of money
So you can buy a ticket
You will be my martian honey all the day
They got one leaving today
And it's going away.back to top
Motorway to Roswell
Motorway to roswell

Las night he could not make it
He tried hard but could not make it
Last night he could not make it
On a holiday
For many miles
Looking for a place to stay
Near some friendly star
He found this mote
And now we wonder where we are
How could this so great
Turn so shitty
He ended up in army crates
And photographs in files
His tiny boat
Sparked as he turned to grazed our city
I started driving on the motorway
I was feeling down
Last night he could not make it
Last night he could not make it
He tried hard but he could not make it
Last night he could not make it
On a holiday
So many miles
Looking for a place to stay
Near some friendly star
He found this mote
And now we wonder
How could this so great
Turn so shitty
He ended up in army crates
And photographs in files
His tiny boat
Sparked as he grazed it
He started heading for the motorway
And he came right now.back to top
The Navajo Know
Upon construction
There is the mohawk
His way of walking
Quite high above the ground
Fearless of looking down
Skywalk
Some people say that
The navajo know
A way of walking
Quite high above the ground
Fearless of looking down
Oh no.back to top
