Bothered in thought but the knot holds taught the light flickers off Into a pile of soot Crooked wars Crooked battles Crooked horse Crooked saddles The Trick of the trip is to jump than look To feed the pursuit get stuck then shook crooked wars crooked battles crooked horse crooked saddles the bottle debunked the babbling crook the ship that sunk sunk with the cook crooked wars crooked battles crooked snakes crooked ladders The pig was a boar ‘till the bee went and stung it the monkey was bored ‘till he shat and then flung it Am I giving you more than the towel you wrung did? Am I giving you more than the time that I sung it? Is it worth to explore the wild child you hung with Won’t matter no more what you walk to the store in You’re a good kid. You’re a sharp tac Gonna make it down down to the bottom and back Try to solder the wire from the microphone cord God save the lord let him lay on his back The war was born before the battle begun and when they shot the cannons sounded like love the kerosene gleams the titans are coming so listen to the humming birds hum earth breathes deep god awful funny so trade in all your money for love

Expulsions 05:34
You take the wheel and I’ll drive faster Until we lose control It’s such a beautiful disaster when we just let it go I don’t know what comes after and I don’t want to know You laugh a lot you talk real scattered you bore one shaky soul I’d ask you all about what don’t matter you kept me well and full You’d raise your hand just like your father but than you’d keep it cool I can feel the traffic whizzing by me than barely hit me sends things shifting and I know my mom would miss me if I died I believe in mothers kicking cancer for their children and their husbands and their sisters brothers mothers and their dads tell the necromancer we don’t need him ‘cause she beat it in this topsy turvy world won’t be defeated not that girl I can feel your big ole heart and I’m so lucky your alive we’ve got each other and the spangled stars they let you keep your blood

I don’t gotta but I do wanna lift my heavy heart up far away from here The dreams I’ve had were dreams about dreaming Now it’s time I dream of something real And when I feel like I could be better I’ll sing like I’m the king of the weather Hey Eddie Vedder, Mr. Van Halen it seems like rock n’ roll and really welcome here Hey Marilyn Manson are ya Monroe Charles or is it just a big joke to fuck with us? And If I did die and if you did die but we were brought right back to life we’d realize that we’re alive and kicking And when I feel like I could be better I’ll sing like I’m the king of the weather

Home looking at all ten pictures of you Alone wishing that I was alone with you Please don’t make me wait any longer I don’t know how much more I could do I sure with that I could be stronger and I could just let go of you but the truth is I wouldn’t ever want to ‘cause I’m still in love with always will be still in love with you Home singing these same ole lonesome blues Home you’re probably humming a similar tune please don’t make me wait any longer don’t know how much more I could do I sure wish that I could be stronger and I could just let go of you but the truth is I wouldn’t ever want to ‘cause I’m still in love with always will be still in love with you

I just want to devour the world I wanna eat it all up I just want to devour the world I wanna eat it all up The dry dead sand from the dessert ground I wanna eat it all up Ceramic tiles from the bathroom floor I wanna eat it all up The three little piggies and the wolves that howl The hard consonants and the soft vowels The babies face and the beggars scowl The filthy rags and the clean white towels I wanna eat it all up I wanna eat it all up I wanna eat it all up and then I’ll belch… a breath of fire I just want to devour the world I wanna eat it all up I just want to devour the world I wanna eat it all up The pale white moon in the dark black sky The shaky voice of the man who died the hearts that burn and the hearts that boil the hearts that run on motor oil the hearts that feel and the hearts that foil the hearts that win every time they roll I wanna eat em all up I wanna eat em all up and then I’ll belch… a breath of fire

about

The Adventures of the Silver Spaceman Brooklyn, New York

"Sprung from Lou Barlow-like crinkly pop, the marauding melodies, two-or-more guitar dualing and shadowy stories move it into dark urban alley territory."
