Track Name: Little Lung
used to roll death by hand / after the Egyptian ban / became a Camels man / that's how it all began / now I've only five leaves left / oh, little lung, goodbye

when heaven is duty free / with pearly gates yellowing / from that sweet Virginia leaf / choking out the scenery / little lung I lit and lifted / the kind of arrow gods have gifted / into the middle of your midst it hit / oh, little lung, it never misses
Track Name: This Street Goes Straight Forever
brother, somewhere over this prison / the sun sets / and I know sometimes you feel so selected against / on a day so bad the sun, it sank in self defense / admire the dirty dove upon this city's centre steps

god, i wish we could just feel at ease / and not so fucked forever / wish it was as simple as a button / or some cryptic lever / go straight forever / this street goes straight

sister of silence / you're a cauldron of regret / and I'm just the blemish you endeavour to forget / the Lepidoptera you caught up in your net / admire the dirty dove upon this city's centre steps

but you know where you go, I go too / it's such a blind endeavour / know that I'm being a pain when I'm convinced that I'm being clever / go straight forever / this street goes straight forever
Track Name: Acid Jungle
i believe your pearls were better off inside the oyster / suspect your silk was happier inside the worm / at night my books reminisce about the forest / the wool I wear still waiting for the herd

give it back

my empty bottles yearn for the rinse of a tide risen / the modern winter waits and wonders why there isn't snow / the fox you wear still waiting for its vixen / sunlight regrets being born eons ago

give it back

the fuel you waste remembers when it roamed the planet / trapped in the dark the cuckoo clock's bird has no sense of time / all matter flees the centre of the universe / like the guilty party flees the scene of a crime

give it back
Track Name: Hark
hark the herald angel making racket from behind / the curtains cluttering up an otherwise empty mind / as far as a sarcophagus / a bed in this dim hospice should make do

stalk these halls of auspices all orderly and kind / we will you to emerge yourself many times more refined / you wake up from a coughing fit / at the end of the wits with which you were supplied

out into the neighbourhood tonight everyone stares / at the fog that had descended and decided to stay there / in here there's a conversation dying to be heard / come bear witness to a living legend's dying words

don't crack your head open in an attempt to understand / the men who make the children make the clothes that make the man / the wind paws at your window each night wanting to know why / and you spent what felt like centuries dreaming up a reply

there upon your face tonight you feel everyone stare / at the frown that had descended and decided to stay there / in here there's a conversation dying to be heard / come bear witness to a living legend's dying words
