California 05:48
CALIFORNIA I woke up in Salinas and I took my pills Pointed the rental to the coast I left a menace in the steady hills kept to the road I knew the most there's plenty of room for all your ghosts plenty of room for all your ghosts in California I fucked the married girls of Monterray I sucked the dicks of route 1 south I could see that Bixby Bridge would fall someday given the motions of our mouths but there's plenty of time to sort it out plenty of time to sort it out in California I found the engine open like you said I tracked the mercy legend overhead tended survivors and buried my dead it came to nothing it came to nothing in California something inside me said stick to the maps but I came to leave my blind spot here I met an angel in a Big Sur tourist trap but I came to leave my blind spot here amognst the graves and in the truest face amongst the graves and in the truest face in California in California

something is rotten thrown it away get at me after nothing is left town heads are bent and gathered nothing is said sort of missed the disaster I bet you did in keeping with the machine in keeping with the machine in keeping with the machine in keeping with the machine I ain't forgotten but I am fine given time given light out comes another reason for hiding us love it arrives and leaves us standing up in keeping with the machine in keeping with the machine in keeping with the machine in keeping with the machine we don't have a rich history we ain't figured easy out deep in dirges we've only heard about I don't want to see you here I don't want to freak you out but I don't know how to help in keeping with the machine in keeping with the machine in keeping with the machine

Over It 03:03
After such a week the pressure stopped it's snowing up in the Bronx push it back from my desk up and under my knees they don't give me the money to deal and I am over it I am over it but they don't give me no shit they ain't chased me down they ain't scared me in years she all up in my face cum all up in my jeans just in town for the new year and I am over it I am over it but they don't give me no shit they don't give me no life they don't give me no STDs they don't give me an A for Effort and I am over it I am over it but they don't give me no shit but they don't give me no shit

END OF THE TOUR don't speak the language not right here you get the desperate tease but I am thankful for my needs I bring the big love with me and I will be with you I will be with you I will be with you soon I will be with you I will be with you I will be with you at the end of the tour don't seek the forest not like me I wasted it all on the trees but I am hopeful of my scene I bring the weather with me and I will be with you I will be with you I will be with you soon I will be with you I will be with you I will be with you at the end of the tour and if fixing this dissonance is such a chore today than I cannot wait I cannot wait to hear you say I will be with you etc.

Pull 04:39
PULL into the canyon, into the below dinky savior in the buffalo had a solution long ago but until it says something, I'm gonna let it go one arm dancing, the other on the wall I don't fear the void but I respect it's call if anyone's listening I do not know I gotta say something – I gotta say something though I'm in love I don't need anything else my heart is tired from being so full when you pull I will go i'm dying to see what you know can't tell what's hurting, I can't get fast enough you can sorta scamper, but you can't really run can't tell what it took out, but I can feel the hole it must have been something, must have been something cold I'm in love etc. I didn't feel anxious, I didn't feel alone but everything's a souvenir when you just get so low and ditches don't dig themselves oh no no no I think I'm just going, I think i'm just going home I'm in love etc
7.
I'm Not 07:25
they could see you waiting they could see you in the car only for a moment picking light from different starts I could feel your disappointment nobody can see the fun but you party to annoying couples deep into the night we ditch the group and the world is part of it and your friends are part of it and your brother is part of it and the kids you love are lost at sea but I'm not but i'm not almost at the bus stop skipping ink in your tattoo tick a little box for something something you've been meaning to do get me when the river is frozen nobody can see the sun but you look at where the footprints started, trace it back to your youth and the world is part of it and your friends are part of it and the dude you like it part of it and your enemies are building legacies but I'm not but i'm not I was in the park last weekend you would not believe the way the ground had sussed out tired and wet and stretched out made of everything but we don't gotta do this right now nobody can be the sun but you i'm calling from a different orbit but all I wanna do is to fall into you and the world is part of it and your friends are part of it and your therapist is part of it and the truth I know is hard to see but I'm not but i'm not

Arches 04:16
i'm sending you pictures of arches I find on my phone a bridge to some memory a gate to some home a place we've been to together a place in our minds a place we can agree on to cultivate the edge on something like a design excited calm a tide divine the park at night we there we fine I'm looking at pictures of arches I find on my wall I find them in books on my table they're showing up in things that I draw I think they are things that you leave here I think they're alive I ain't found them all yet and we ain't been out west yet but I have seen us arrive excited calm a tide divine the park at night we there we fine arches stand in front of you the land that let the flood through the rock that held on excited calm etc

Analog 06:42
you said you remember the smudges and the thirst it took you to Plainview, it cast your visage on the side of the garage your friend said “oh, that's analog” a dot is an eye now watching the sky now first things first prune it down and keep it in the light get some tape, get some eyes get yourself to bed when the ugly thing arrives the press will call it analog a dot is an eye now approaching the sky now a dot is an eye now we keep it alive now that's all we can do now we keep it alive now you love the way it looks you love the things it leaves you love the feel of crumpled drapes you love the things it makes you hot for the way it fucks with my computer classic signs of analog a dot is an eye now etc

Trump Signs 05:51
a group of old white men in front of a starbucks carrying trump signs a helpless stretch of front lawns in suburban ohio stuck with trump signs I was out running I ran on I ran under trump signs in midtown when I saw it coming I gripped the sides of my head hidden in anger I guess but I do no longer and I do have a little less to say I do, hesitant and dangerous that way here once was where we cast our set to rely on numbers and front lines a boarded several mile stretch of where ever now its own kind of trump sign I was out running I ran on I ran under trump signs in midtown when I saw it coming I gripped the sides of my head hidden in anger I guess I do no more I do I was out running I ran on I ran under trump signs in midtown when I saw it coming I gripped the sides of my head hidden in anger and thankful for anything I do
