Track Name: Violets and White
Silver saucers of space echo omnipresent
Circles in the chrome high sky
Lip are like fists for sexual knowledge of you and I

And I will be giving you violets and white
Whispering, I'll be giving you violets and white
To change your mind

Realizing that I simply know nothing is a
Wonderful place to be
Skin of steely milk for your air-conditioned silk,
Is so honey-sucking chic

And I will be giving you violets and white
Pistol-whipping, I'll be giving you violets and white
To change your mind

Don't you see the stars?
The stars will far for us
You see, the stars will fall for us
For us
Track Name: Dive
I don't really know what I said, or what I'm saying
But you don't really know how I really feel,
Or how I'm aching
I know it's over
Fallen in a deep blue, oh I still miss your lemon smile
Just take it all, take all that I have to give
Don't dive in head first with another one
Dive into another one
Just take it all, take all that I have to give to you
I don't want to be the one to say it
But consider yourself a turnstile
I don't want to be the one to say it
But it's too late to walk backwards
Just take it all, take all that I have to give to you
I know it's over
Track Name: Galaxies With Long Yellow Curtains
I take along a lonely song to keep me warm
Cause' out in space it's freezing and so far from home, from home

I've got my orange space suit and love from a video screen
Moon-walkin' thrilla machine
There is no light of the silvery moon when you're floating in space, in space

I'm on a rocket ship to galaxies with long yellow curtains
Hung from stars, stars that still shine
They still shine, shining down on Earth to show the world we're not alone

I spent my last night of the Earth with the woman I love
A wet and juicy de love
Robots and ray guns light my way to the great beyond

Beyond my eyes

I'm on a rocket ship to galaxies with long yellow curtains
Hung from stars, stars that still shine
They still shine, shining down on Earth to show the world we're not alone
Track Name: Mind Eraser
Got a mind eraser, "set to kill" on phaser my friend
I'm the dream creator, defying laws of Nature again trippin'

I fall down and then I wake up

Saving all the monsters of plastic avocado green, Thorazine
I'm the vinyl whispers of the 1970's machine

I fall down and then I wake up

A few light years away
A sky of linoleum
Going out just enough too far
Space is the ocean
Supersonic polka dots bleeding fire
There is more than just one sun
Track Name: Sub-lingual La-La
Stumbling over the heads of lions
Tumbling into the mouths of truth
Letting their tongues lick my flesh

I can say I love someone

Feats of the desperate daring dives
Majestic spectres from under the deep
The mother of milky water rides

I can say I love someone

Unlimbering sub-lingual love...

I can say I love someone
Track Name: Yellow Sun
She comes in like a train wreck on national TV
"Temporary disaster", she said it would be
But it's alright, she still shines
She always wanted a super-hero in 3D
I'm not even close to that
But it's alright, she doesn't mind... that much
You and me in the yellow sun
Letting our rays get soaked-up by every one
I dreamt we were the sun, we were raging in the sky
It was just a dream I had, just a stupid dream I had... once
You and me in the yellow sun
Letting our rays get soaked-up by every one
Track Name: Dislocation Daydream
I'm in the middle of the stars again
We'll be the light in the deep blue sky
I'm in the middle of a sacred swim
We'll be the warmth on the back of the deep blue sea
I'm in the middle of electric love
Way out smiles through way out wires
I'm in the middle of a strange conceit
Sometimes you are who you meet

More space than sky
Dead and being alive

I'm in the middle of finding myself
In this dislocation daydream

Dis-dislocation Day-daydream

I'm in the middle of the stars again
Too fast to touch too slow to see
I'm in the middle of a sacred swim
Manifest destiny is my plan

More space than sky
Dead and being alive

Dis-dislocation Day-daydream
Track Name: Sparkler
The icon sits glowing
Like a roman candle
Doesn’t think of the "ifs"
Can’t take or give herself
She has her excuses
She was a sparkler
Everyone wants her to spread
She has her excuses
Track Name: Hand Drawn Circle
God said son "You're on your own and you're not the only one."
We all have our place, our moment in the sun
Then the nightshade goes down

Oh I won't deny it, it's been one hell of a ride
Taking me down into it
I don't want to go, go fast or too slow
Promises make liars of us all
Because "never" will come, and "always" will go

Just a hand drawn circle

Love, just to love
Not what you're used to thinking of
Nothing in return
Can't be the perfect us
To forgive to to not forget

Oh I won't deny it, it's been one hell of a ride
Taking me down into it
I don't want to go, go fast or too slow
Promises make liars of us all
Because "never" will come, and "always" will go

Just a hand drawn circle
Track Name: Lindsey Woolsey
Nothing but tar and turpentine
Vanishing the grandeur of the wilderness
Thitherward in the black mud and yellow dust
Twilighted with tallow candles and pigs of lead
My lindsey woolsey shirt is drenched in sweat

Breaking upon a wheel
steeped in the marrow, a foretaste of heaven
Brought to bare this petrified heart
That's like throwing stones to the bottom

Tramps and blatherskites lay down their drunken heads
My lindsey woolsey shirt is drenched in sweat

Oh I belong to this world. I long for the day and the night,
But it won't be long until I leave it...

Only the Lord can know the answer
How can I turn cold yet burn with fever
No providence to fall upon
And no woman to call my name
Just twilighted tallow candles and pigs of lead
My lindsey woolsey shirt is drenched in sweat

Oh I belong to this world. I long for the day and the night,
But it won't be long until I leave it...
Track Name: Giant
It was bigger than me, it was bigger than you it was giant
I want to turn on, dark red is my sun, so sweet so
Strong, crushed velvet is your skin
I didn't see God through stained glass eyes
The silence becomes loud and clear
Don't say we're wrong
It was bigger than me, it was bigger than you it was giant
There's so many levels to this it's an inferno
Kind of a thing, don't close you hand until I'm in it
Don't close your mouth until I'm finished
Through it, don't lose sight of what's real
Don't say we're wrong
It was giant
