Track Name: All Sailors
ALL SAILORS

All sailors look away from the star to see the star
A hotter fire won’t burn away the way you are
Keep it in your memory, like the color of a penny
Feeling peripheral
Track Name: Cicada
CICADA

Big cicada in the backyard makes a sound
In the darkness, plants and shadows form a dome
Decibels and danger make a lovely dirge
Fight the urge to place cicada in my ear

Cicada mania, 17 soundless years

Big cicada on Long Island, he emerged
Been underground since the year 2000, eating roots
Remove the old skin, fill with fluid, then begin
Muscles flex and music vibrates to find his mate

Cicada mania, 17 soundless years
Track Name: Sunny The Bully
SUNNY THE BULLY

Sunny the bully, she was so tall
She said the words that made us feel small
Sunny the bully, she had all the power

Sunny the bully, she killed the poor
She saw the food stamps that I used at the store
Sunny the bully she had all the power

Oh Leeland, don’t go—you’re the only one I know
Track Name: Tender Tyrant
TENDER TYRANT

In the vortex of a cortex
Silhouette is hard to forget
Sound is wound round your wound and it tightens
Let the terror sit there softly

Tender tyrant, please come back
Take the hot knife out of my back
Leave the love letters in my bed
As a reminder that you’re dead

Morning bodies must move slowly
To keep the molecules from moving
Put your head back on the pillow and keep dreaming
An evening body isn’t moving

Tender tyrant, please come back
Take the hot knife out of my back
Leave the love letters in my bed
As a reminder that you’re dead

Keep your head on the pillow keep dreaming
Track Name: The Hearts & Tigers Song (We've All Got Your Back)
THE HEARTS AND TIGERS SONG (WE'VE ALL GOT YOUR BACK)

Hearts and Tigers are fast talkers
Hearts and Tigers are sons and daughters
Hearts and Tigers Oooooooh

Hearts and Tigers wear warm sweaters
Hearts and Tigers hang together
Hearts and Tigers Ooooooh

Hearts and Tigers we’re nothing fancy
Hearts and Tigers—let’s get dancy
Hearts and Tigers Ooooooh

Hearts and Tigers love lasagna
Hearts and Tigers—word to your mama
Hearts and Tigers Ooooooh

We’ve all got your back
Track Name: Sad Familiar State
SAD FAMILIAR STATE

Let’s not enumerate our sins tonight
Let us not regurgitate in this sad familiar state
Who’s wrong? Who’s right?
Why illuminate each plight?
Kindness is a virtue
Modesty is beautiful
Track Name: Funeral
FUNERAL

I don’t know what your after, but you won’t find it here
I thought I saw you at the funeral, but I didn’t see you there
What I saw was a dead friend going—going underground
In a basket full of flowers, and a circle of tears around

She was a girl we knew so well
Trapped in time and lost by years
She was a feeling we never feel
Trapped on a boat and lost to fire
Track Name: Write A Will
WRITE A WILL

Searching through the stillness of this illness
Desperate designs bring heart blood
Oh wreckage, wreckage in the shape of a man
He sits, shaky hand holding a pen

Write a letter, or better still, write a will
A deep dolor has a color, and the color is stubbornness
Track Name: Eighty-Eight Degrees
Eighty-Eight degrees

You look real there in your wheel chair
I’m beside you, but really I’m not there
Push the buttons to make the chair go fast
Having visions of traffic accidents

Sociopathic fantasies
But after all, its
88, 88, 88 degrees

Riding a bus down an angry Gresham street
Observing poor people lug sticky bags of cans
Imagining the bus crash into another bus
Wondering if we might all be better off

Sociopathic fantasies
But after all, its
88, 88, 88 degrees
Track Name: No. 21
NUMBER TWENTY ONE

On the green field that bright day
Around the baseball diamond brown and dusty
You had your sport suit on and you
Were chewing Cherry Skoal Tobacco

I can always feel the sun
When I’m thinking of my number 21

After the game we danced all night
To Michael Jackson at Cocktails and Dreams
Naked ladies danced with bats and gloves
While we moon-walked and fell in love

I can always feel the sun
When I’m thinking of my number 21
Track Name: I Can't Feel My Knees
I CAN’T FEEL MY KNEES

Go back go back, go back go back, go back go back,
Touch the light twice
You can’t relax, you can’t relax, you can’t relax
Until it’s done right
Remember the windows—open them, open them
White light will crescendo—let it in, let it in

Feeling ill at ease—subtle sound catastrophe
I can’t feel my knees—subterfuge infirmary
Feeling ill at ease
I can’t feel my knees

A peaceful place, a silent space, a fearsome page
Scrapes at the skin
A little pill, to dull the will, alright until
The phone call comes
Remember the windows—open them, open them
White light will crescendo—let it in, let it in

Feeling ill at ease—subtle sound catastrophe
I can’t feel my knees—subterfuge infirmary
Feeling ill at ease
I can’t feel my knees
