Hitch 04:35
hitch what I want I put aside just to like what you do like frequently I compromise I say one thing but mean another not to lie but to save the well being of someone other than me - I’m addicted to recognition but when expressed I get upset if there’s a hitch I’ll make it all mine then this old hitch seems to have been mine all the time may I relieve you of your burden I could carry it away though I might not detect a proper place for it to stay my dearest ambitions are not decisions they don’t ever let me be they keep circling all around me just like flies, but motorized chorus

spring cleaning in the wintertime thanks kindly, for your interference you put a crimp right into coherence now, authority I gained , but who comitted that minor crime, something, a loss, something implicit? there comes a time when you’ll pierce through my surface, you’ll be baffled, too to see me like some others like they do since I’ve been accounting the past I like the times that lay ahead of you and everything you said at times well solemnly declared I like the times that lay ahead of you and everything you said few windows closed some popped up latley so, do I have the time for safety? you do the spring cleaning in the wintertime And feeding birds with sparkling wine since I’ve been accounting the past I like the times that lay ahead of you and everything you said, at times well solemnly declared I like the times that lay ahead of you and everything you said chorus

riding on the assembly line crossing the poor men’s vacation residence on my way to the citizen service center I can see a wedding party next to the city hall but who’s the bride and who’s the broom, I don’t see at all two plastic tables, a cardboard box, some bottles of fizzy wine everything a wedding party just needs to feel fine eventually as I have reached my final destination I make my way just straight ahead, past the information you can feel you’re looked all over, all over from head to toe and I just can’t exonerate myself from doing so and I just can’t exonerate myself from doing so riding on the assembly line people stop and go and pass me by riding on the assembly line people stop and go and pass me by a young girl with a headscarf on accompanied by her guiding husband taking place in front of a spare counter not to the pleasure of jealous eyes who blame you for your nature why can’t we just abandon those thoughts on our creature a few seats next to me on the right, I can see a hairless woman and lots of wondering pitiful eyes asking for the reason the display puts the waiting time for me now to an end while all the other eyes complain about their remaining time to spend chorus glances follow me get up, they walk me through the door my way home leads me to the city’s local park once more where I’m asked for a cigarette, stared at by thirsty eyes takin’ a break from looking at another broom and bride

Spots 03:10
spots hello dear, it’ s me it ‘s been a while since you were near how have you been, my pal? I heard that fate’s been treatin’ you mean you’re my favorite spot in this place where there’re not a lot of spots that set alight your life, help to abstract day from night they might get blurred some other time might disappear in space and time might vanish to what can’ t be mine hey, it s me holding line I’m way too far from being fine and you seem to be out of reach as I’m willing to step into the breach for you, my favorite spot in this place where there’re not a lot look, watch’em going out they were just flitting ’round but there’re new ones flashing up soon

positively grey a simple warning would have been good if accurately timed but we’re not supposed to linger on, sighing saving some dying now there’s nothing to do but missing the hell out of you and no time to kill cause you’re gone from here still but real gone not until… you woke me up now who’s waking you up? who’s waking you up? is there anyone? one to run this job paid nothing on top now, there’s nothing to do but missing the hell out of you and no time to kill cause you’re gone from here still but real gone not until… you were best at letting me walking through something new you’ll be remembered any day painted positively grey but for now, there’s nothing to do but missing the hell out of you and no time to kill cause you’re gone from here still but real gone not until…

a woman passin’ by a woman passin’ by on her bicycle expressing that she’s good but most of all, I do perceive people who might have thought they understood the art of being without meaning, without meaning, to it at all, at all a perfect image of a crumblin’ feeling being ‘bout to fall take good care of the man you are the man you’ll likely be for the next decades to follow let’s make ends meet or is what you feel all you feel is that all you can feel? the golden city holds some good examples of hand-holding species here when they arrived, did they just find what there ‘s to find when you’re right on time did they just find a suitful weapon to beat mr daily grind taken for grantedness is creeping in, and it’s not inclined to creep out for long take good care of the man you are the man you’ll likely be for the next decades to follow let’s make ends meet or is what you feel all you feel is that all you can feel? I like the shape of your back only when there is no monkey ’round to wear I like the shape of your feet only if they keep on walking straight ahead when you asked me about my plans and options, possibly all options included I replied that I don’t psych me up for your death while you’re still around here take good care of the man you’re with the man you’re easily without for the next decades to follow let’s make ends meet or is what you feel all you feel is that all you can feel?

No 92 02:06
no. 92 in response to a song I once adored to which I made you belong but once is called all gone I’m gone, I’m gone you’re not the greatest gift one of many kinds you work the day time shift but I, I work the night You work your ego-trip and I work this land You switch the flip but I, I flip the bird in response to a song I once adored to which I made you belong but once is called all gone I’m gone, I’m gone respect was left alone to be the odd one out to be on its very own now to turn to a different crowd in response to a song I once adored to which I made you belong but once is called all gone I’m gone, I’m gone I keep you as my find but not for long got to rewind to record this first take smile on my cleared mind on my cleared mind

my life’s thicket I’m so afraid of heights and things getting’ out of sight I’m so afraid of speed and turning into a case of need but I’m not afraid of you you could chop me through and out of my life ‘s thicket you won’t let me end up like a ram that’s stuck deep in my life ‘s thicket well, I’m so afraid of stagnation but even more, more afraid of cessation I’m afraid of the day when loved ones will pass away but I’m not afraid of you you could chop me through and out of my life ‘s thicket you won’t let me end up like a ram that’s stuck deep in my life ‘s thicket If I could walk the horizon line back and forth I’d be fine but I can’t and I never will as long as fear escorts me still

Limb 03:44
limb I’ll rather be guided than I guide myself I wallow in comfort with my dreams on the shelf till someone sets the alarm clock, and I wake from my slumber and I reach for the snooze button just to have a cushy number but I go out on a limb just the sea, further down though I know that it’s thin but I keep linger on, while sawing off warnings there’ve been a few before the shots met its target though I did look’em through I kept tossin’ and turnin’ like a wounded bull and the barriers were low with more behind than met the matador’s eye but I go out on a limb just the sea further down though I know that it’s thin but I keep linger on, while sawing off still go out on a limb just the sea further down though I know that it’s thin but I keep linger on, while sawing off

Overboard 03:59
overboard I can love you in a garden and turn love into cliché and I hate to hate to hate you hate’ s not even worth its name I don’t fuck for fucking’s sake well, some exceptions excluded maybe that’s because you like me maybe that’s because you don’t sometimes I’m afraid of women, of how they look and what they say and I lump them all together in anticipation of cliché overboard with all your money and all your fake your simulations don’t fake no illness it’s so transparantly revealed you are here, but I’m there I’m there, you don’t care windswept, soaked right to the skin towards the rising sun again simplicity applied so rarely in times like these we need it most I’m so bewildered and astonished but disconnect and take a bow Chorus I could be your phantom pain reliever I cannot replace those missing bits degree, achievements I respect them but not narcissm at its best Chorus

hollywood in paris back at my local retail store the employees were taking stock I bought the last carrots of course to simplify their work a lot not to the pleasure of two girls who finally had to do without carrots in their soup or where- ever they were thought to land but does it matter? do things get better? if one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, pleasure i thought about our last two days when paris felt like hollywood cotton candy, white snow flakes dipped into cerulean milk beggars wrapped into reels of paper with news that probably referred to why they had to face their fate in such a frosty, deadly way but does it matter? do things get better? if one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, pleasure I managed to get high combatin’ my fear of heights disease from 50 meters way up high Paris just looked sweet not sweet at all the taste of sour cream from a plastic cup to see the world from upside down means not to be on top
