Track Name: In a Dream
IN A DREAM

If you want to walk with me
I will welcome company
though I know, I know I’ll never be
the one you’re looking for
for the one that I adore
is a shadow on the blind
is a picture in my mind
and nothing more

Some say: impossible to miss
a mouth that never wished,
a heart that never
beat against a bone
oh yes, I know it never was
I know, it sounds obscene
I meet him and hold her in a dream

In a dream, in a dream
we walk meandering
streetlights stretch
past tracks that lead away
to the meadows that I know
from a thousand years ago
here I lie with my love
lie, lie, lie and lie... for a while

As I rise, I still see
this tableaux vividly
I try to keep it close
I try to keep anything
his back against the lawn
her fingers in my hair
their laugh between my teeth...
I try to keep it there

In a dream, in a dream
we walk meandering
streetlights stretch past
tracks that lead away
to the meadows that I know
from a thousand years ago
here I lie with my love
lie, lie, lie and lie for a while

In a dream, in a dream
we walk meandering
streetlights stretch past tracks
that lead away
to the meadows that I know
from a thousand years ago
here I lie with my love

In a dream, in a dream
our words are what they mean
whispering: let me stay
in the meadows that I know
from a thousand years ago
here I lie with my love
lie, lie, lie and lie... for a while
Track Name: Stacks on Stacks
STACKS ON STACKS

Through the gaping gates
columns crawl
encircle curious enough
to touch
a paper doll,
second tooth,
diary’s scrawl,
a picture of you

Hands revolve around the face
wring away the hours
dust lands on lace

Stacks on stacks so extend
catalyzing nothing: nothing begins
paper trails interleave
lead to nowhere
no one, nothing

Hands revolve around the face
twist away the hour
dust lands on lace
circle intimates a rhyme
a pop, a flash of light
swiftly back in time

Is someone stalling
dragging out the dawn
window’s calling
to write your name upon
is there someone there
someone smiling
draw the face
and dissipate quietly

Through the gaping gates
columns crawl
catalyzing nothing
nothing at all
paper trails interleave
lead to nowhere
no one, nothing
Track Name: Come to Your House
COME TO YOUR HOUSE

I want to come to your house
I want to want to come over
I want to see those pictures
you’ll never even notice

I want to come to your house
I want to see what you hide in the mirror
tear through your clothing
comb through your hair
pretend you’ll never know this

Hey, I know that it’s late
I know
it’s probably too late
but how can you sleep with the sound
of my desire ringing in your ear?

I’m going to come to your house
I’m going to caress your figurines
lift my lips, drink dust from your trophies

I want to come to your house
I want to want to come over
I want to see those pictures
you’ll never even know
Track Name: Over Mountains
OVER MOUNTAINS

How can I find a love with anybody else
you know it’s been a hard little time
I’m spending it by myself.
how can I drift through the day
keeping cover while
waxing deeply cliche

I move over mountains
to tell you: hi, hello
I want you to know
I’d rather be fooled than be let go

Not very long ago I used to lead a life
I used to have some friends
and meet them from time to time
used to be carefully calm, collected
how do I move mountains now?

I move over mountains
to tell you: hi, hello
I want you to know
I’d rather be fooled than be let go
over mountains, under a spell
am I the guilty guy?
I’d rather be fooled than told goodbye
Track Name: Falling
Falling

Will you hold onto my hand?
I’m falling forwards
Farther than before, falling further
I’m falling, falling...
still falling

“Something... is something wrong?”
Colors everything I’m leaning on
A nervous thing I do
every time that I
try to think on you
I shred a big bouquet between my hands
holding off the summer fade
the solstice past, heading home at last
what welcomes a sheepdog captured on her way
beyond the pasture gate?
Will you lead me home?

Something, something is wrong
Come in clear to me or move along
Nervous things I do
to keep you warm, to make you strong
Trees were singing “bow/ugh to me”
I cried, “With your leaves you tempted me.
Now they fall from the canopy!”
So I stumble through the desert to escape your day long shadow.
Will you follow?

I’m starting to relax
it’s taken too long
to anticipate an end
or ascend
I’m falling,
falling
still falling
