Track Name: Death To All Squares
Squares are circles that forgot
All the degrees they had not
Ninety times four
Means more on the floor
Three-hundred-sixty degrees hot

Rectangle creeps in the center
Extending legs to enter
Domain of the square’s angles
But rejects the newfangled

Opts to emulate the oval
That’s why I called you
It’s like I told you

It’s death to all squares
Circular timekeepers
Cubical weepers

Polygon rules the school
Plays you for a fool
With unequal proportions
Gymnastic contortions

It’s he who is the tool
Embrace the rectangle
When it creeps
Add up to the total
Embrace the oval
Run around in circles

That’s why I called you
It’s just like I told you
Four times or more

It’s death to all squares
No time for remorse
No room to change our course
It’s death to all squares!
Track Name: Sweat The Fen
It is a place for us to begin
It holds a secret cabal
We’ll see it all my friend
You’ll know our secret trend

O you can break my pen
On your chin
If you’ll agree that we
Sweat the fen

Take it on the chin

Odors of night
Come swirling
They’re burning bright
Smash the cellos

O you can break my pen
On your chin
If you’ll agree that we
Sweat the fen

Take it on the chin

Bathe yourself
In mourning light
Sweat the fen
You know the

O you can break my pen
On your chin
If you’ll agree that we
Sweat the fen

You’ll take it on the chin
And be here with me
Track Name: (Song For) The Most Beautiful Girl In The World
I picture her face
In a northern place
And I like to see her there
When she’s smiling

She’s so far from me
Because it wasn’t meant to be
If I could change that
I’d make it my living

So I thought I’d write a song
For the most
Beautiful girl in the world

We knew it a long time ago
But couldn’t make it real
Couldn’t seal the deal
Not beyond the obvious

So I thought I’d write a song
To tell you

At the party in the basement
When you said we should leave
Your smile told me everything
You clung on my sleeve
Now I see

Or slamming through my front door
At 3 a.m. o’clock
And I did not get up
Couldn’t take you up
On your kind invitation

So I thought I’d write a song
For the most
Beautiful girl in the world
Track Name: Greepies
Greepies creep in the fen
At the verges of
Nature preserve
On the bridge

Greepies
Creep into your life
Tiny lights
In the shining corners of your eyes

Sparks of selfsame
Luminous in the shallows
Far off cry of some predator’s passing

Greepies holding hands
Supine on the bridge
Stars above
No sound
But for your breath on my wrist

Our greepies
Shine darkly in the dusk
Our greepies
Track Name: Nightmare Stadium/Fear Wears A Trenchcoat
One in two million
Lobsters are blue
But that doesn’t give me
A better chance
Of getting through to you

As I claw my way out of
Crustacean station
Can you feel our
Shared vibration?

You were platinum
Now you’re palladium
And they are watching us

Thrashing in our sheets
From private suites
In Nightmare Stadium

***

There’s nothing to fear
Except when fear
Wears a trenchcoat
And a fedora

Eyes cold white flames
In shadows beneath
A razorsharp hatbrim
Wields a knife
The kind that can slice your life

Fear walks these streets
Fear wears a trenchcoat
Fear’s cold fingertips
Extend and touch your throat

There’s nothing to fear
Except when fear
Gets fired up tonight
It’s his night
Track Name: How To Set The World On Fire
Venture communists:
Meet me at the subversive bookstore
Before the fists in our chests
Stop punching

Let’s find our inner scepters
It’s our time to rule

St. Rawberries:
Met us on the third Thursday
When the skeleton farms of India
Were truly pumping

That’s how to set the world on fire
Set the world on fire
Track Name: Man Advice For Your Life
Hey maybe you didn’t know it then man
That’s all right
It’s never too late until

You give up the fight
And why give up?
The fight’s what makes the life

We’ll go to round 15
Just ice down the jaw
If it takes all night
We’ll make it alright

Sometimes the best things take
Years to realize but
When you do that’s man
Advice for your life

Total drama unleashed
Going through the wall
Untotal all your conclusions
Go forth and have it all
Track Name: I’m Beginning To Know Where You Are
O lady
I’m beginning to know where you are
Took a long time
In my feeble mind
I’m beginning to know where you are

It’s been a long crawl
But I’m here now
To be beside you

For a little while
To walk as a pair
Want to see you
Want to make it right
O honey
I’m beginning to know where you are

It’s in
The transmissions
The superstitions
I'm willing to know more
Whatever you want to tell me
For a little while

It’s been a long crawl
But I’m here now
To be beside you

For a little while
To walk as a pair
Want to see you
Want to make it feel right
O honey
I’m beginning to see where you are
O honey
I’m beginning to know where you are

O lady
I’m beginning to know where you are
Track Name: Poseidon Of Wells
The Poseidon of wells
Enters the puddle

The Poseidon of wells
Has a wet rat to cuddle

The Poseidon of wells
Knows his Jack & Jill trivia
Kicked the bucket
Faded into Bolivia

The Poseidon of wells
He’s so befuddled

Poseidon of wells
Knows his Twilight Zone errata
Kicked the bucket
Faded into Bolivia
Track Name: Super Lemon Hayes
Super Lemon Hayes
He’s a boxer who loves to blaze
Put out your lights

Spark up your spliff
One way or another it’s your brain cells at risk
He’s hell-bent to raze

Super Lemon Hayes
Your brain cells are lights out
Rip your grill
Tantalizing smell
He’s Super Lemon Hayes
Track Name: The Forever Itch
Nurse Ivy’s got a smile
Like the crowbar
To the gates of infinity

So now we’re grabbing mantles
And drinking candles

She’s all over me
And then she’s over me

But I’ll never be free
Of Nurse Ivy
I’ll never be free
Of Nurse Ivy

I’ll forever itch
I’m a clingy bitch
I'll never be free

Creep back to me
Nurse Ivy
Bring it back to me
Track Name: When You Listen (Good Things Happen)
Damn your volcano
Always getting you in trouble
Waiting for an erupt
You’re dependent on tectonic events

And when
Did such things ever
Inspire confidence?

Then again
Good things can happen if you listen
Tell me when you hear it
Long before the end

You’re in luck
That will be when
The earthquake
Destroys what it feeds
Yet the tremors
Delight in what they heal

Then again
Good things can happen if you listen
Tell me when
You hear it long before the end

Tell me when
You’re in luck
That will be when

Listen
Track Name: The Summer Of Autumn
She came out of nowhere
Like an arrow
Or a rainbow
Or a cardiac event

She circled me
Like a vulcha
With an unslakable
Thirst for culcha

Just before I knew it
She was growing on me
Like agriculcha

I always had
A guitar to strum
And a song to hum
In the summer of Autumn …

But now it’s the
Autumn of Summer
She’s not sticking around
She’s sticking it to me
Like a drummer

Winter is gonna be
A bitch a bore and a bummer
In the summer of Autumn
In the autumn of Summer

She’s like a cardiac event
Track Name: Transferring Red Words
It’s the ultimate collab
A life in the cottage industry
Lollipops and flip-flops
Hummingbird in my house
So I feel well

On the phony express
Is a chill box
Is a life ring
Patti’s hearse will drive us
To the gods of evolution

If it were perfect
It wouldn’t cause pain
Were it always excellent
There’d be no refrain
From inscribing and sighing and
Transferring red words

It’s only a matter of physicks
An exceptionally obtuse angle
She’s all the rage in her yoga class
I’m drinking Mexican coke
Eating a literal ton of lunch
I guess I’ll mow my own lawn

If she were present
She’d join me on the train
Always in the chill box
Life rings beyond the rain

Some tack that enacts us
Some track to distract us
From inscribing and sighing and
Transferring red words
Track Name: The Acoustically Bent
They got around
Like a mole in the ground
Like a mud thing
Trapped in a
Sunspiral spinning

They made a sound

Neptune’s daughter
As if they had chances
As if there were a time
And a place for everything

Doctor S. on mando
Kiyenne paid the rent
Guitar open for business
They were acoustically bent

They went to town
In a glass onion

Gave some worthwhile advice
From Mars
To wholly improve your weekend
It’s ne plus ultra my friend
Steady your nystagmus stare
And view beyond new dawn
Forgive the somnambulists and
Study what goes on

In the Southern Tier

Doctor S. on mando
Kiyenne paid the rent
Guitar open for business
They were acoustically bent

Fluffy the magic centipede
Wondered could we do it?

We were tuning a machine
Destined for visitative disappointment
The stars were fine
And we were wasted
You better be kidding
Kerflungian jungle fix
Crab crab
Where’s your walking stick?
Wishing well
Why didn’t your wishing stick?

They were acoustically bent
