From up north there are songs that have been sung by the largest loudest lungs you can find them all in the glamorous glowing And from up north when I heard your towing song I knew you wouldn’t be towing long you won’t have to not where you are going And from up north when I heard your towing song I knew your shell would all be gone you won’t need it here not where you are going And you don’t have to sing a last song But we can all just play along And hum with bright works and baton Yes you will find them all in the glamorous glowing And all our imprints are chalky bones And all that we built we’d lay at the thrown If in our travels we could find our way home We are searching We are searching From up north there are songs that have been sung by the largest loudest lungs you can find them all in the glamorous glowing And from up north when I heard your towing song I knew you wouldn’t be towing long you won’t have to not where you are going And you don’t have to sing a last song But we can all just play along And hum with bright works and baton Yes you will find them all in the glamorous glowing Yes you will find them all in the glamorous glowing Yes you will find them all in the glamorous glowing

We knew the content roots of trees we knew Were half grinning at the coughing cylinders And while conversing with clouds we spoke up far too loud And got swept beneath the mower blades of the paralyzed old plow War story hellos War story hellos We mouthed tragic relations between the spaces and the vowels and we slipped under the mower blades of the paralyzed old plow and I know its not your fault but it doesn’t make much sense to pose all your living relatives close with all your deceased friends but War story hellos War story hellos You knew That drawing chalk lines would only bring flowing floods And you knew We knew the content roots of trees we knew Were half laughing at the sounds they heard above And while conversing with clouds we spoke up far too loud And got swept beneath the mower blades of the paralyzed old plow

Potted Plant 02:26
Let’s forget the big cold buttons let’s see what we can track through with warm boots And with shock ivory helmet eyes we’ll watch storming through keyholes in your living room And that’s where we’ll listen to the chatter of our inner architecture You swear that photosynthesis is never an intention of a selfish sun And that all the months that start with ‘J’ should be replaced with under represented ones That’s when you’ll enlist the animals to join your cause and to begin a hunger strike And for all the crops to scream eclipse and hide until the management does what they like And that’s when you’ll take on the foreman role and take the matter into your own hands And since you always cursed the sun as selfish won’t let me be your potted plant Let’s forget the big cold buttons let’s see where we can go now with our new shoes And with shock ivory helmet eyes we’ll watch storming through keyholes in your living room But since you’ve endorsed this spectacle there’s not much left for me to say to you Until recently it seemed all of the wrong things had eluded you That was until you wanted me to Topple all the fences in your neighbors yard Topple all the fences in your neighbors yard That was until you wanted me to Topple all the fences in your neighbors yard

All that was brass swung slow The overlapping tongues of a folding chair And I make it hard I know For you to care And I’m not asking to hold back now But you’re not making any sense at all And all the pioneer scalps are falling out of your bag And all the colors in their hair remind you that you’ve gone too far And all the pioneer scalps are falling out All that was brass swung slow The overlapping tongues of a folding chair And I make it hard I know For you to care We hope that somehow We hope that somehow it makes good We hope that somehow We hope that somehow it makes good And all the pioneer scalps are falling out of your bag And all the colors in their hair remind you that you’ve gone too far And all the pioneer scalps are falling out

The muted applause of rain Sleeves wrapped like licorice on the back seat of a train Splintered driftwood half moons on my tongue And other things The backs of leaves Should have warned us from Like laying down in piles And laughing all along Jackets sewn like an American Quilt Jackets sewn like an American Quilt In a smile the patience of sea salt smoothing the shards of a bottle Reminding us that we’re here Reminding us that we never left Reminding us that we’re on our way home We made sand from a shaker Previously lent to the beach by us We were palm brooms finally learning to stomach their salt That’s when she said there are so many things I would thrown in the ocean when I was younger but Underneath couch cushions seems a less obvious good bye I agreed and continued to build her an ash tray in the sand The muted applause of rain Sleeves wrapped like licorice on the back seat of a train

A Badge 02:48
Someday I’m going to come home with a bag full of everything you want you know Someday I’m going to come home with a bag full of everything you want And I’ll be carrying flowers like a soldier holds a gun And I’ll be carrying flowers like a soldier holds a gun Someday I’m going to come home with a badge that says exactly what’s on my mind Someday I’m going to come home wearing that badge and I’m going to wear it all the time Someday I’m going to come home with a badge that says your mine Someday I’m going to come home Someday I’m going to come home
