Track Name: Phantom
A wicked and twisted phantom
comes to you in the night
but all you see is your reflection
in its huge, unblinking eye

you warm up a glass of milk
but forget it in the microwave
and a day passes
and another day


and the phantom keeps on coming
and the phantom won't relent
and from the kitchen there arises
an unblinking, awful scent


puny pilgrim keep on running
but in your heart you won't repent
big two-hearted river flooding
fuse all guilt and innocence


what is the proper orientation of myself to my non-self?
what is the proper orientation of my non-self to me?
what is the proper orientation of the world to my non-self?
what is the proper orientation of the world to me?

to me
to me
and does it always have to be
to me?
Track Name: Foot
i came and visited you at work
i couldn't help but imagine you without your shirt
and all i wanted was to hold your foot
but i couldn't imagine how i ever could

then came the passing of that strange urge
but soon enough an even stranger urge emerged
wanted to return to that safe pod

where i believed in god
and the validity of all my wants

why do i always want to skip town?
oh don't i know it's all the same everywhere all around?
don't understand what i'm thinking
oh don't i know that there's nothing to do?
there's nothing to do
there's nothing to do but move
once i get to a new place

oh don't i know
that lonely's just where lonely hearts go

and now i
believe in hell
and the validity of being well
Track Name: Fly
i
encountered on my walk home
a fly
who couldn't
and i
must have spooked it in my approach
because the fly
jumped up and landed on its back

and i
was confronted with a choice right then and there
to flip it back over
or to stomp it out of this world
and you
knowing what you do of me
what do you
think i chose?
and who
are we to judge the suffering
of a puny
little
bug?
Track Name: Torturer
torturer
in black mask
and spiked
collar
finally
opens the
door and i
stand on the
threshold and
think for a
second
is it time
to go back
inside?

i asked
what did you come here for?
and you said
whatever you need me for
and i said
i don't know what you're for

torturer
peels off mask
and i
holler
finally
realize
he is i
stand on the
threshold and
think for a
second
is it time
to go back
inside?

i asked
what did you come here for?
and you said
whatever you need me for
and i said
i don't know what you're for
Track Name: Tiger
i had a bad day
but at least it's ending
and in the distance
there is a fist unclenching
to hand down the judgment
but withhold the sentence

i had a good day
but of course now i'm tired
and in the distance
a villager has expired
he was mauled by
a hungry tiger

and the tragedy is
the villager was well liked
the villager was well liked
by friends
and family
and tiger alike

and in the nearness
there is a bad day ending
and in the distance
there is a talon clenching
and in the distance
there is a fish life ending

and the tragedy is
the fish was well liked
the fish was well liked
by friends
and family
and eagle alike

i took a picture
when you were with me
but you
wouldn't smile for me
and if i called you
what would you say to me?
and if you called me,
well you'd never call me
Track Name: Mom
my mom says
this is the year
she'll overcome
her lifelong
self-hatred
at 61
well by what means, mom,
and by what right?

but if god brings you joy
then by all means, go with god
why would i stop you?
why would i stop you?
and besides, mom,
how could i stop you?
why would i stop you?

oh do i feel like the daddy of the world
and mommy says
she wants out
she says she's gonna take the kids
and i just want what's best for them

so if mom brings them joy
then by all means, go with mom
why would i stop you?
why would i stop you?
and besides
how could i stop you?
and why would i stop you?

unclench your jaw
and open your mouth to me
no more brutal songs
i want to make something sweet
nothing to hide
you've seen every part of me
fist opens wide
all is soft palm and freedom now
Track Name: Squirrels
to be given
one shot
and to know i
will blow it

oh, to be
a squirrel helixing a tree with you
or just to
be the tree you're helixing
up to get a better view
or just to be
the view you're helixing
the tree to get up to

now how he
licks the wound last week he got from you
from inside his cheek
his tongue pokes out and peeks at you
like you wanted it to
and can you see
his teeth through the hole you turned his cheek into?

but a squirrel is roadkill
with his guts poppin' out
and what did he want
but an acorn i kicked
into
the road?

oh so it's nobody's fault?
well that's easy for me
go tell that to his family
i got a feeling that they
might
disagree

to be given
one shot
and to know i
will blow it
Track Name: Brain Problem
when i was 16
i developed
a brain problem
i mean a real brain problem
i wanted to
i did it because i wanted to

and the problem would remit
but it wouldn't get better
it wouldn't quit
it would just fester

so god grant me strength

to know
what is a brain problem

and what is just me

when i was 16
i realized i had always had a brain problem
i wanted to
drop dead right then and there
i wanted to
live forever
and i can't believe
i made it to twenty three
without a scratch on me

and the problem comes and goes
with the weather
and i know
just 'cause it's not getting better now
doesn't mean it won't ever

so god grant me strength

to know
what is a brain problem

and what is just me
Track Name: It Ends
i saw a peach on a tree
dangle and plop down to me
i've been allergic since i was 16
but i wanted to set the pit free

remember camping out west?
i saw a beast paw a pest
am i the pest
or am i the beast
i thought that you had meant boston when you said you were
moving back east

i saw my mom swat a fly
and sweep the fly's body aside
i watched the fly
wriggle and twitch and then die
and never once bat a green eye

it ends

same way it begins

on a whim
