The Great Conversation (free) 03:54
wide eyed like a little kid will you ever feel that way again? or are you satisfied with what you've seen to tell us what we ought to be? for just two thousand and eight hundred years the conversation's been as great as this where hospitality's a shallow grave and tolerance is for the weak comment, click, rescind, reply, flame, unfriend, or go outside? raise your glass and don't you dare misgive it's hard life for the working stiff ample purses make for ample wives you've got yours and I've got mine but in the face of overwhelming greed tolerance might be just what we need unpopular though it may be it just might educate us liberally I'm laid off with no pension for telling some rich kid he couldn't talk on his cell phone I'm a teacher, but I'm learning what it's like to work invisible hands to the bone sorry to sound crotchedy but I protest the dogma that you bring you are an Eliot in Clinton's time intoning your elitist lies so woman won't you come and talk to me What's your nature and your destiny? I wasn't coveting your finer things I'm only curious what makes you sing

Alfalfa (free) 02:52
It's been a long time coming cold is just how I'm running and you know the truth is so much more than you deserve as you drive them away can't hear what they say yes you drive them away one less to satisfy I know you can't spell team but you got all the schemes and you just add pages to that ugly resume maybe it's jealousy stealin' away from me If I had more maybe I'd be happy in the side as you drive them away can't hear what they say yes you drive them away one less to satisfy I still smell poison here you kill off those who fear tell you the truth you've been choking so I'll humor you when your alone do you think that it was peaches plums or alfalfa?

Black Eyed Morning (free) 04:51
Sunday morning, up with the blowing horn across the road I lift my head up off my stone-shaped jacket Isabella's jade is like a mirror as it drags across our one comfortable pillow the engine's groaning and Robert moaning that his mom don't give a shit she only says that she should have her own He's distracted by the popo just in time for me to look back to my future wife At the clinic, I bear witness to the sickness in this world I wouldn't pin it on the nurses' union No one's trying to take you precious book Mister we just wanna take a look My head is throbbing, my eye's like a bobbing, and the drugs won't do the trick But I don't trip, it's just another black eye morning You can taste these German chocolate eyes and you can taste these German chocolate lies the Dallas Star will bleed you dry don't look too long at that tattoo on her spine You cut her daisies til the meadows weep I know a field of roses isn't cheap A beach of sand costs many lives So who will be the one to win the prize? Monday morning, head still thumping to the back-beat in my mind I lay down something lazy in my bed

Happy Birthday Jenny (free) 04:54
happy birthday jenny happy birthday to you today's December first i would have called to tell you, but me and phones if we ain't legend, we will be soon instead i wrote these words down to sing this tune especially for you 'cuz radio's dead and I like my bed So there's little hope you're gonna hear these wishes I offer this must be better than the real thing stir it up with your old man again, I like that lucky bloke cause I remember every movement and baby, it was a tragic comedy I guess I think of myself as a playwright celebrating and re-celebrating the mystery you've become that sounds like birthdays how many candles has it been since I lovingly trashed my heroine sabotaged the second act, put it in before the first distilled the whole thing into verse and left it with an **old sweater at the bottom of your stairs For every one I sang you under my pillow there's three more I hope I didn't hurt anybody but myself when they slowly trickled to a halt but they keep coming and coming, no I'm not barely through showing what it's like not to live with you fighting to stop fighting what's really on my chest all just to sketch just one more glimpse of - you act three, here we are already It was nice to hear your voice I guess I'll let you go I understand there just some phone lines you aren't willing to cross What's that honey? you know can say anything to me your birthday's April 4 always glad to call a little ahead of time talk to you next year sweetie if I'm on this stage alone I don't see the harm I'll play you how I like self-preservation comes at no cost to you there's nothing here to laugh at (well, depends which side the curtain you're standing) But for this sinking serious moment Jenny, let me tell you, I think I'll be okay

Lunula (free) 03:43
She's grown her nails out it's the little things that make me promise to be alone with her the light that still seduces men snail guide made thin all the time tracks the progress washes gray the hints of who I was and where I'm headed sand was never kind she was upset and I was scared still I feel her tide pull me in, push me out smile's for a child he can't see hidden danger stare too long at her and I'll be left alone air draws me close and far away from him man whose hands are chapped and heart remains just the same close my eyes at night open windows and dream of salt oh dear lunula and lunacy Don't leave me here alone with dreams I can't dissuade

Weirding Way (free) 04:20
strolled down to the indie book store cat in the window, sign on the door says "Theatrical Readings" coming Thursday too bad that's the night that I role play glide down the aisle past the Orphan's Tales towards collectibles and rare book sales that's when I see her smiling at me and somewhere in my head yes I heard her plea She keeps looking at me with that weirding way Say the litany against fear and I watch her sway come back to my sietch and give my baliset a strum our breeding program, yeah it's just begun Close the Asimov in my hands move round the corner of the trade paper stands then a tiny worry nags me where does she stand on the legacy? Cause Brian ain't his dad and there's no co-author to be had that I'll see as more than a mouse and the canon closes at "Chapterhouse" She keeps looking at me with that weirding way Say the litany against fear and I watch her sway come back to my seitch and give my baliset a strum our breeding program, yeah it's just begun

Olivia (free) 04:11
little girl, my little light please come back to the arms that used to delight and every time I embarrassed you it was just the little girl I was talking to down go the trolley cars good night dear heart good night dear heart good night she's further now, than ever before damn the ocean outside the door and damn me for what I can't do all the little heartbreaks I can't see you through We once had a fine home built on the stories that I told you sat in your sister's lap and I will try to remember that down go the trolley cars good night dear heart good night dear heart up go the trolley cars green sod lie light green sod lie light lie light

Mistook for Venezuelan (free) 03:53
mistook for a Venezuelan for the lilt in her horn she came from Stockton to play that trumpet til her lips could play no more she dabbled in mixolydian, wouldn't stick to 1 4 5 free of the glances of ten-odd groomsmen and the glares from the English horn pigtailed and slumped at the winebar she's the proxy for every bride the wedding crasher with the tattoo on her spine swears right in front of the children swears she cannot write or drive the way she wears her eyeliner she knows things it's true enough she called your bluff and used you up before she drove herself back to Stockton

Jade (free) 03:26
Introductions are always stiff and I'm the man standing on a cliff she drops down from a herald cloud grabs the lotion and addresses the crowd "Here's to being thorough as hell here's to living through every swell here's to never out growing the joke" here's to laughing as she spoke It's nice to meet ya I love you too and I'll be happy when we're through maybe I'm best under served and sometimes it's better curved while we're on the topic here let's all greet the long dead steer So I declare today the day when we all swore to look away when we all rode that rail too long and gave our hearts to the song It's nice to meet ya I love you too and I'll be happy when we're through

Good Young Americans (free) 04:03
I guess I did some things I'm not so proud of the traces now you hardly can see the hair-lined fractured sense of self-conviction of one good woman, maybe three and I probably already started thinking about my daddy's boatful of good ideas he inherited it from the world's gladdest fisherman but in Nebraska we can't even swim I don't know why I left my home but it won't be long til I get home like so many good young americans put on my levis, grabbed my guitar slid inside her Chevrolet body and poured myself out on to the road I can't rightly tell you that I'm sorry I can't even tell you that it's fun I guess I never bought into the system I only think about what I ain't done I don't know why I left my home but it won't be long til I get home

Second Bill of Rights (free) 03:34
men of means whose fingers probably never touched the soil wrote a second bill of rights to save the second world that train's still rolling way back home we curve the bend, head up the last ravine lost traction to a hemorrhage, lost our head of steam now I'm sick and homeless the ridge begets and small and shining rivulet of gold preternatural wealth withstanding, would you dip your toe? I think I might... denial is a tender mother nature doesn't need you need not shake his hand, you needn't satisfy his greed don't tow that grief that lonesome whistle oughta echo in your soul don't the art of breathing inspire you no more? and exhale I'm gonna read a book, I'm gonna make myself a pie I'm gonna grab my woman, take her out on the night when that train pulls in I'd love to see the painter's touch across that thought of line but I know that I presume too much indulging in this history rhyme but I got my interests like the second bill of rights the second bill of rights...

Glad I Didn't Stay (free) 02:50
if you push the kids i think you'll be surprised when the kids push back they're gonna make you cry if you saw sad eyes when the drums marched me away from here well if you want the truth I'm glad I didn't stay i was a concierge, i was a killer with no name i was a contestant on a tv show just the same what a welcome from the crowd, barely off the plane before they froze my cards and send me back on a train back when your birthday cards might have carried a little weight back when I knew the words and transport was arranged we were underused, we only bought what we were sold we were your mother's favorite fairy tale waiting to be told if you saw sad eyes when the drums marched me away from here well if you want the truth I'm glad I didn't stay
