Track Name: Whip Flash
Whip Flash
Track Name: TV Dinner
punch in // punch out
punch punch beneath the counter
rocka number in thy mouth
get down in a get up
i never would of chose
discounts for honeys
'neath the bossman's nose

cats lives up to high five
the wind blows you home
for the tv dinner

fractured ambition
rocked a hammock for a sling
the error of an era
a divorcee's ring
"keep your mouth shut
or you'll be shut down"
you can shut the stable door
but the horse is out
because when I go
there'll be someone else
and my name'll just be something
that'll ring a bell

cats lives up to high five
and the wind blows you home
for a tv dinner
Track Name: Future Reset
Smoke-stack sky
suck a juke joint lit
wrong side speeding
lickety split brace & bit
driving a hole through a night sky
beer can rattle, who gon' tattle
syphon trust out from a white lie

a rock on the road
keep me rolling down
like a rock on the road

red hair dye & a different name
cheap tricks to deep six
any trace of trait
slingshot strutt & singing adios
until I cross the border
& I hit the coast

a rock on the road
keep me rolling down
like a rock on the road
Track Name: Dead Fish
Lay my head in a wrecking yard
I slept to the sound of a drill
Lay my head in a wrecking yard
But now I live on the hill

Was stuck on things
that suck on dreams
a dead fish goes the way of the stream

But you are placing pennies
on the eyes that undo
Track Name: Leeches
white fangs top & down
bottleneck slide
to make new ground
suck the next sucka
seen hangin' round
& drain away

no spine
turn no page
think from my tail
to anterior brain
32 brains all synchronised say
drain away

So I'll say what I need to say
to get a grip on you
Go and pray
But say what pray tell

Your tear is just a drop in the sea
Unless you're someone with something
You're nothing to me

I'm a woman
I'm a man
I give I get just what I can
Slam dunk seed like a monster jam
from down town

no spine
turn no page
think from my tail
to anterior brain
32 brains all synchronised say
drain away

So I'll say what I need to say
to get a grip on you
Go and pray
But say what pray tell

Your tear is just a drop in the sea
Unless you're someone with something
You're nothing to me
Track Name: Marble Orchard
Peroxide on a pixe
Blue diamond wink
drag a twisted dream
& teeter on the drink
high heel through a clock face
destruction in reverse
If I'm chewing broken teeth
then I'm spitting out a pearl

Because I feel
I feel like I'm splitting from a marble orchard

Hit mute upon the whip crack
of the backwards tongue
locked in an ashtray mouth
looping marathons
audio is focussed
on the deal going down
there's a change in the weather
& I'm holstered in the sound

Because I feel
I feel like I'm splitting from a marble orchard

I'm sleepy on the yesterday
that's never coming back
I'm sleepy on the black text
I'd rather read on black
I'm sleepy on the strangers
all cross eyed in my face
I'm sleepy on this race course
I'm sleepy on it's pace
I'm sleepy on my sleepy
shut down the shut eye, shrewd
& I'm splitting like the bullet
from the first gun that drew

& I feel
feel like I'm splitting from a marble orchard
Track Name: Trash
Way to talk off my head
I'm standing idle

Talking like a dump truck
My ears began to ring
I watched you move your mouth
My eyes began to sting
My hair was falling out
My dome was caving in
I couldn't interrupt because the pauses....
were too thin
I gathered up your words
I used them for manure
I grew a giant plant
I thought I'd found a cure
A little palliation
Filled inside my lungs
My eyes started to spin
& I couldn't stop my
tongue tongue tongue tongue
I phoned up every person
I could think of at the time
I shouted through a bull horn
I threw up my red wine
The spew then turned to acid
The poison met the sea
Our water looks like custard
We talk through yellow teeth
Nobody has been sleeping
Each phone was born to ring
Now everybody's talking
But nobody says a thing
Everybody's talking
but nobody says a thing

Way to talk off my head
I'm standing idle
Track Name: Swimming Up
Darkness chilled
Director's cut
Sunlit roof
I'm swimming up
Nothing left for me down here
All was made to disappear

& I'm swimming up
I'm swimming up
