mouse trap 03:00
mouse trap... we fought under bloody stars we fought in the bloody bars we live near the burned out cars we know what the passcodes are we know where the bodies are for the union for our union we beat each other up night after night then somehow managed to stumble home under fading moonlight and I'm still drinking but I think- I think I'm alright maybe I'm kidding myself by feeling closer to you you when the boat got wrecked in October as the orange oak leaves burned and as cold water ran down Central Ave it reminded me of the things I'd never have and one of the things on that very long list was you but now I guess that I'm finally through with you I guess I'm finally through with you god damn it.

Tuesday fell like an anvil impossible to ignore because that dream job the one you dreamed of had become a chore there is security in obscurity but if you stand out you'll get nailed back down avoid human contact in the cube farm make excuses to get your job done watch the clock tick sneak out for a cigarette watch the clock tick then wreck a spreadsheet there is security in obscurity but if you stand out you'll get nailed back down (groovy instrumental break) there is security in obscurity but if you stand out you'll get nailed back down check the org chart on a daily basis not sure why your box always moves reconsider that new car purchase be quietly indispensable there is security in obscurity but if you stand out you'll get nailed back down

field trial 02:57
your red rimmed eyes spelled desperation I knew you were trouble when I met you at the fence. I took you out to Fading Fall Meadows it looked like a Wyeth despite your bear suit and all yeah, I think you're pretty cool too. we will take many long walks together I'll be back in touch as soon as I am better let's start out slowly and talk about the weather field trial field trial

riding high 04:48
welcome back riding high magic there's no time to dream about what it might mean riding high I think everybody's getting twitchy now riding high I think everybody's getting twitchy now high in the Alps high in the Alps riding high magic he looks dead cool, I'll tell ya the race is on the table pain written all over the face he's just hanging on he's just hanging on riding high high in the Alps high in the Alps now we know now we know now we know now we know riding high

I have to admit that I have never seen the clouds so low or these post-industrial rivers flowing so slow the good doctor called because he'd lost his car keys in the snow we wandered around for an hour or so up to our knees on an icy beach don't turn your head and don't be distracted by the sharks in the sea because I've read quite recently that they've all split the scene they're hunting seals again in Italian suits and very fancy boots

alprazolam 02:40
full moon and I couldn't sleep at all last night like a sailor winding his sheets too tightly the cat says it's four and when I turn out the light I can see you in the dark but I can't hold you quite as tightly as I used to maybe but it's ok things will be different today it's ok because I self-medicate I talked to my doctor she's very nice I sat with my shrink and repeated it twice they drew some blood and scanned my brain then sent me home to you

gardener 03:21
when the apple tree has lost its leaves roll up your sleeves and grab your saw when the apple tree has lost its leaves roll up your sleeves remember what you saw when the wind blows and there's rain on your nose don't worry I've got your coat winter winds blow as the boat stalls don't worry I'm coming home home

then/when 03:31
1, 2, 3, 4, we all fall down locus 5, 6, 7, and 8 1, 2, 3, 4, we all fall down you said that I was your favorite artifact in the ruins and as we scratched at the bottom of level 23 we found a carved bone pendant you dropped a GPS datum point I took a photo of the object in situ and one with your shirt off we bagged it and tagged it then moved on the quiet of the site sounded like white noise I was one of the boys and you should surely get tenure for that 1, 2, 3, 4, we all fall down locus 5, 6, 7, and 8 that was our last day in Syria
