A gap revealed

are you sure about the past being in the garage?
we had a sale awhile back
and somebody, i don't know who, but somebody walked off with the 70s
just picked up that whole decade
and walked off with it
as big as you please

later, i heard the 70s were scrapped
and sold for parts

me, i just wanted mescaline on the beach
and cigarettes
and beer
and manny mota

Ten Planets in Elvis

there was a desert wind that kissed the rocks
it blew in temperatures made in sand
we counted ten planets in Elvis
we conjured up the Rio Grande

i saw the shaman shadow
i rode my bike in the milky way
smoked a cigarette in joshua tree sunday
threw a frisbee cuz i came to play

climb the rocks
climb the stairs
climb the night
into ursa major
climb the night
and wave to your friends
climb over Europe
into the wasteland
climb over Asia
and drown in LA
climb the place
where 66 rambled
the wind will come
and blow you away
the wind will come
and blow you away

pitch a tent next to the boulders
light a fire in a blackened cave
catch the stars in a coleman lantern
burn them all at a private rave

in the morning the east wind is hollow
the sun rises like a bandolier
all my dreams got stuck in Needles
for one minute i was happy here

climb the rocks
climb the stairs
climb the night
into ursa major
climb the night
and wave to your friends
climb over Europe
into the wasteland
climb over Asia
and drown in LA
climb the place
where 66 rambled
the wind will come
and blow you away
the wind will come
and blow you away

there was a desert wind that kissed the rocks
late at night at the rendezvous
we counted ten planets in the constellation of Elvis
we conjured up the Rio Grande

i saw the shaman shadow
i rode my bike in the milky way
smoked a cigarette in joshua tree sunday
threw a frisbee cuz i came to play

Just a Regular Guy



on a typical saturday
i had a typical seizure
people came to the filthy shore
and said their lines
umpteen times
and i shook on the floor

we drank vanilla wine alot
we were smoking vanilla pot
we found our way to the country store
started shouting our lines
umpteen times
and I shook on the floor

oh, it was a lot of fun
there in the burning sun
i wanted to fuck the girls
i was shaking so hard
i was shaking so hard
just wanna fuck all the girls
just a regular guy

we slept on the rooftop
i dreamed of a local shop
we were open at break of day
rehearsing our lines
umpteen times
and I shook on the floor

i was looking through the glass
even god had a perfect ass
go forth and now multiply
look out for the land mines
umpteen times
and i shook on the floor
and i shook on the floor

oh, it was a lot of fun
there in the burning sun
i wanted to fuck the girls
i was shaking so hard
i was shaking so hard
just wanna fuck all the girls
just a regular guy

will you pay my bills
will you pay my bills
will you please pay my bills
just wanna fuck all the girls
just a regular guy

Screaming Shadow Orgasm Destroys Building



it is a slow dance
at the edge of the street
there are shadows grabbing
everyone that we meet
someone tried twisting
my spine in the ground
and i fall down
fuh-fuh-freak

(author's note: this song will never be completed)

The Rays of the Sun



the snow was a white bird that fell asleep
and fell all over me
and fell
all over me

the earth is a chamber in a saxophone
the wind it blows
the wind
blows over me

the stars are in silence
as i wait for the dawn
no one can see the crows at night
no one can see them at all
i'm waiting just the same
just the same
yes, i'm waiting just the same
for the rays of the sun

winter took my breath and ran far away
on spindly legs
winter
runs away

my lover holds me in the cold of the night
an angel bright
my lover
is here to stay

the stars are in silence
as i wait for the dawn
no one can see the crows at night
no one can see them at all
i'm waiting just the same
just the same
yes, i'm waiting just the same
for the rays of the sun

i kiss her neck
one last caress
unfold her dress
then she is gone
just like a dream

the snow was a white bird that fell asleep
and fell all over me
and fell
all over me

the earth is a chamber in a saxophone
the wind it blows
the wind
blows over me

the stars are in silence
as i wait for the dawn
no one can see the crows at night
no one can see them at all
i'm waiting just the same
just the same
yes, i'm waiting just the same
for the rays of the sun
