Track Name: Songs About Pizza
Fire, stacked high with pine
fire, seemed to lick the sky

Burned our tongues on mountain pies
made up songs on pizza nights

machete clears
we watched for deer
black berries picked
we checked for ticks

Wrote silly songs
Skipped rocks on ponds
Slice after slice
Same thing each night

Life went on, days unwound
We had less time, so we found

The stream flowed on, and there it stayed
From those old songs, we had strayed
Signage posted, ten years passed
I still wandered, waist high grass

machete clears
we watched for deer
black berries picked
we checked for ticks

Wrote silly songs
Skipped rocks on ponds
Slice after slice
Same thing each night

I found, our prints and laughs
Lost days, came back at last
Track Name: Memory Serves
I can't forget
what was said
what we did
what we left behind

It all floods back
in a muddy torrent
Memories pleasant
and abhorrent

I can't forget
what was said
what we did
what we left behind
I can't forget
where I've been
what I've loved
Who I was, back then

It all floods back
in a muddy torrent
Memories pleasant
and abhorrent

life is a racetrack
to memorize
Hold down the throttle
and close your eyes
watch out for pigeons
might have to swerve
lots of loose gravel
memory serves
Track Name: Three Garages
****Truck
License plates
and random shit
chains and rags
and rusty bits

Park the truck
scare off the snakes
don't forget to
apply your brakes

****Snake
SO this is where
the snakes hang out
Overrun with ivy
and filled with shouts
When a snake skin
brushes your head
You'd prefer blue
House or Wood shed

****Red
Escape from snakes
and run from owls
The hay stacked up
in untidy piles

touch the joists
scratch the ceiling
adventure
the best feeling
Track Name: Woofy
Wagging tail, pointed ear
Barking madly when near
Dog house square, flat ceiling
bones were yours for stealing

You ran home, at mother's whistle
Have some rabbit or steak gristle
Our little wolf, barking bastion
Always faithful, wild companion

Your chair is gone and burned
i know you won't return
Rolling hills still echo
Woofy, you're missed, you know

You ran home, at mother's whistle
Have some rabbit or steak gristle
Our little wolf, barking bastion
Always faithful, wild companion

You are hunting, rolling, running
Tug of war and midday sunning
You're not here but I'll remember
furry extra family member

You are hunting, rolling, running
Tug of war and midday sunning
You're not here but I'll remember
furry extra family member

Chewing sticks, chasing deer
Follow prey without fear
You shared our paths and roads
Snapping at frogs and toads

You ran home, at mother's whistle
Have some rabbit or steak gristle
Our little wolf, barking bastion
Always faithful, wild companion
Track Name: Blue House, Wood Shed
Pine cone, tennis racket
rubber boots, old jacket
robin's nest, burnt candle
ancient door, stone handle
fluorescent lighting, stove
smelly smells clog your nose
buckets and well used sleds
What else? a wood filled shed

Full of boards, borkin' window
Perfect for letting in snow
Mice and bullfrogs, share consortment
Things and junk, a full assortment
Track Name: The Rock Place And Motorcycle Hill
Lean a rock against the tree
Climb to see what we can see
Fields of soy, turkey flock
Perched above the crumbled rock

Our fire pit
dug up from earth
The leafy boughs
filled up with mirt
Track Name: Ride The Rainbow
Eventually, things will change
Entire lifetime rearranged
I carried on, some things washed out
Rock place deserted, weeds throughout

I wasn't ready, I'm not now
To say goodbye to leafy boughs

Ride the rainbow
Time to move on
Leave the dreamscapes
Dead on the lawn
Step out of dust
Into mazes
Life disrupts our
Chance for stasis

But fortune smiled and I mistook
There to be solace in her look
Past thoughts faded, mem'ries obscured
I was changed by what I endured

Dreams fade to ashes, stay alert
To ride the rainbow, human hurt
Sundry simulacra filling
Mental soil ripe for tilling
Track Name: Starbound
Time flowed on coldly in an endless stream
Life came apart tonight at all the seams
I had to let go of my ancient past
A crippled ship sailing without its mast

I can't see what it is I have become
I can't return to from depths where I've come
Time is indifferent, it slips right on by
Universe quietly lets out a sigh
