Track Name: Please Don't Snooze
Damn I wish I could make you a bed for your back
To lie in
Or die in
Or get you in the sack
Please don't be sleepin'
I wanna see your eyes
I wanna take off your dress, and give you a disguise

Please Don't Snooze, baby Please Don't Snooze
Sacrificed my cat to Jesus for your moments that I lose
Please Don't Snooze, baby Please Don't Snooze
'Cause when the day breaks you might find scorpions in your shoes

Oh they'd welt and they'd sting your pretty brown feet
And tell you what diseases you can get from what you eat
They'd crawl in your navel
And poison your spine
Your eyes'd roll back
And you'd forget your all mine

Please don't be Snoozin'
Not on my watch
Please don't be passed out
Drunk off my scotch
Please don't meet with no Huxley in a dream
'Cause it may be your subconscious
But it's still a date to me

So Nelson Mandela, lend me your ears
And oh Pontius Pilot, rent me some spears
I done bled through all my pores
To score the woman I got
Yeah I been up all night on my banjo
Writing tunes about how I love her a lot

Please Don't Snooze, mama Please Don't Snooze
I'm rotting away in Denmark of boredom and booze
Please Don't Snooze, baby, Please Don't Snooze

Cause for you a little slumber's a fucking lot for me to lose
Track Name: Death Bat Flies
You painted my window
So I could see your skull
Sleek like the dayglo pulses of my mensch-stration
And the Über-chill flow of my friends
Reading your smoke signals
'Cause Mary's passin' my way
Want to give you that shotgun again


Sittin' on info
That'll never reach the public
Lest my darker visions force some extraction
From the constant conjugation
Of my people profiles changin'
Based on meditations on L S D

And they just get more beautiful
Yeah they just get more beautiful


It's such a soft glow when the streetlamps sigh
Like when a death bat cuts
Across the quivering purple sky

And it's so fine the way their merits shine
Atop an ocean of wine
That fights the rising tide of oil


We threaded the table legs with our limbs
Crass like the slow inspection
Of my sweet Love
With particular function to match
Seating in slow rhythm
'Cause the scent trails are embedded
Let's hop over the fence
Into the black

Breathing in slow notes
That read colors of fixation
'Cause the camp of good sensation's a lost cause
In this romance crushing city
But the prospects are so pretty
'Least there's pleasure in the honest mistakes

So I'll just spin and spin and fly
I'll spin and lose or win and die


We had a good thing
But the constant sweep
Of evil protocols
Have taken everything to keep

And family who I meet in dreams
Give out the silver touch
To all the artists feeling weak
Track Name: All Keys
My mother used to say
I'm really real this way, but I want you to know that it's not ok
Oh yeah I want you to know
That it's not ok

I go out every night
And when I see my sights
It's just a scuzzy fadeout
I wanna Love away
You're just a scuzzy fadeout
I wanna Love away

I got so many friends
And they all do it too
But man it ain't the fifties
Oh no it ain't the fifties

My soul is real to me
I'm who I wanna be
You oughta get to know me
Oh baby, get to know me

Everybody
Holds all the keys
Everybody
Holds all the keys


My brother is the best
One night he hit my chest
And said, You fucked me heart up
I didn't even know
Hey man you fucked my heart up
I didn't even know

So on a somber day
You know I always say
Let's go and light our brains up
We gotta lot to learn
So let's go light our brains up
Because I wanna learn


Everybody
Holds all the keys
Everybody
Holds all the keys


It ain't the fifties

Hey get to know me

Baby, I want you to Love me
Track Name: C'mon Baby, Do Drugs With Me
C'mon baby do drugs with me, please
C'mon baby do drugs with me, I'm on my knees

The brightest light on the switchboard
And you oughta disconnect
We could be so good
But you need a womb-time recollect
And it's this
C'mon baby do drugs with me
Oh do you even know how they feel?
C'mon baby do drugs with me
You'll be your old square self in the morning

The girls I meet are so boring
There ain't none that want a good time
Or sweet rhyme to lean on when they're numb
They're all caught up in their worries
I need a popped lid
All id
Sweet kid
To lay with in the sun

You smell like weed on the subway
Cutie-pie foxtrot yankee bravo
High school yearbook: Most likely to succeed
You smell like weed on the subway
And I wanna be your man!

C'mon baby do drugs with me
Or would you rather sleep alone?
C'mon baby do drugs with me
Because I need to take you home

Right Now


(crying)


C'mon baby do drugs with me
'Cause I'm a whiskey shot
Mop top
Brain rot
Professor of the sky
C'mon baby do drugs with me
And we'll just take off all our clothes
And lay together
Until we die

And we'll be high

We'll get by

C'mon baby do drugs with me, please
C'mon baby
Do drugs
With me
I'm on my knees
Track Name: Mister Storyteller
Hey Mister Storyteller won't you tell it to me…
Anything, anything just please let me be…
Something crass not too brash or a little boring..
(I think i saw it move around this morning)
Got it right, its the night before recalling…

Yet, you were on mind…
were on my mind…
were on my mind…

Hey hey! Hey hey! Hey hey…

Hey Mister Storyteller won't you sell it to me…
I gotta send it but I couldn't even start to receive…
Tried and true, black and blue, unpredictable too...
(Invoked the feeling but all I ever got was you)
With friends like that, what the fuck else is a boy to do?

Yet, you were on mind…
were on my mind…
were on my mind…
Yeah, you were on mind…
were on my mind…
were on my mind…

Hey hey! Hey hey! Hey hey…

Hey Pioneer on a frontier of dreams…
They always wreck the top deck from the inside seams…
I made it out, there's no doubt or alarming…
(I think i saw it crawl out this morning)
Got it right, its the night before reforming...
Track Name: West Maybe
Wake up with a prayer
That she'll find completion
And deliver that hair

It started in the books
That teach that how things feel
Is tied to how things look

Well there's nothing new, baby
Inside that old enclave
You better scratch it out the right direction

Goin'
West, maybe
West, maybe

Wanna go
West, maybe
West, maybe

Carry me
West, maybe
West, baby

We're goin'
West, maybe
West, maybe

Oh take me


So sick of my job
Feel like the atlas to the psyches in the Brooklyn bars
I was wearing my bluejeans
When I saw her on the street
I hoped that I look dark enough for her

At birth we're all the same
How come you turned on so different?
Parents favored in their own tired way?


It wasn't
West, baby
West, baby

Wanna go
West, maybe
West, maybe

Goin'
West, maybe
West, maybe

Gotta Go
West, maybe
West, maybe


I can't feel my feet
I live this melody of Love
and feel it's harmony on every street
Well, I'm smokin' Blue Dream
And it's a catalyst sativa
Give me blacks and whites
and notes to sing
A howl into my echo
And when I can't get off the floor
I think you know which way
I wanna go


We're goin'
West, maybe
West, maybe

Wanna go
West, maybe
West, maybe

Goin'
West, maybe
West, maybe

Goin'
West, maybe
West, maybe
