Track Name: Soul Farm
Take a look around and tell me what you see
can you relate to your neighbors in vicinity
gonna move out on a farm with all my buddies
do you think you're bound for glory in this misery so cruddy
if you have to drink
they're gonna send you to rehab
if you have to think
they won't let you get very far
yes it hurts
I'm to blame for I brought all my money
to the lottery in town just to appeal to my honey


Take a walk around and tell me that you're free
do you believe in salvation through your gadgetry
gonna move out and dig a hole for all my buddies
I don't think i'm bound for glory in this misery so cruddy

I'm to blame for I never took the chances
to let it all go and give in to my senses
I need my soul back
gimme my soul back
I need my soul back
what's your name
what's your name
Wish I could lie to you
but you know it's all the same

one two three four five six seven
where were you on nine eleven

there's a melody sung by the trees
and the leaves twirl around in my heart and urge me to wayfare

and I know I have seen nothing yet
please come with me and commit to your part
let's move out on soul farm
not easy to go there
Track Name: Nuts
call me dumb for i don't care too much for money
i am right where i'm supposed to be
in a relation to solemnities of hunger and desire
there's a place beneath the willow trees
i don't want your car, your jewelry, your hair cut
i want sugar in the sugar free
so well, i cannot tell a lie and you can keep the secret
there's a place beneath the willow trees

i have been there you have not
i have been there you have not
i have been there you have not
i have been there
you not

this is why i never run to the elections
television is the place to be
bait me leaflets later fuck me on the dance floor
incarnation of the mindless breed


call me dumb for i don't care too much for living
i am right where i'm supposed to be yeah
so this is heaven says the voice behind the counter
there's a place beneath the willow trees
i am sad because i've eaten all the pills now
didn't change my state of mind you see
tried the lotion and the orthopedic inlays
keep me running to the willow trees

i have been there you have not
i have been there you have not
i have been there you have not
i have been there
i'm nuts

this is why i never try to read the papers
telly nation is the place to be
bait me leaflets later fuck me on the dance floor
incarnation of the lifeless breed
Track Name: Treetown
yesterday i died
i do believe it's better not to breathe now
and catch their eyes

no one can you trust
when empathy and love
have to make way for greed and lust

i used to climb the trees
that's where they'll never be
though they relate to my own kind

i still do have my dreams
it's nothing as it seems
when they go on me to take my pride


they burn the sky
too many of us and many of them now
they only know to plough
the streets fall down
what's an ape like
in the town?


we hide
we hide
up in the trees
we hide
Track Name: Fossil
I want to sit again up on that rusty crane
watch all the sailors sailing by
we sat up there and spoke plans into the wind
so far away now out of sight

we were drifting along
drifting along

all the souvenirs collected from the sea
I took them home up to my sill
but all the words and days grow pale inside my mind
just stones and shells remaining still

drifting along
just drifting along

all the words I have to write
cannot decipher but I'll try
we are related through all times
see you on the other side
Track Name: Hole
my soul sisters, soul brothers gather around
let's find relief in delusion on the preacher man's ground
there is the powerplant turbine and the fortress around
i saw the guns in the hills on my way into town

here in the garden of ease i hear his words every day
they keep us hungry and willing keep us wanting to stay
i saw a bird on a wire this morning eager to leave
i took the preacher man's rifle i saw him down at my feet


i do believe
now as the guards come around
i do believe
i hear the church bell's sound
i do believe
now as the cross is bound
i do believe
it's to be found in the hollowed ground


everybody keep on running up the hill we'll paint the sky
the preacher's talking backwards while the river's running dry
we're high
oh so high

there's a hollow at the foot of the mountain
dig your hands into the clammy ore
keep on digging till the hollow's a tunnel
keep on digging for the omitted core
Track Name: Usual Paranoid
i'm not able to talk because i'm head over heels
i'm unable to walk because i skipped all the meals
i separate people's talk from what i've chosen for real
i jettison all my thoughts on finding out where we are
and what the fuck is the deal

this is the time
there is no sign

i'm accumulating in real time
all paranoia is mine


it's these times after dark when self containment is real
i segregate from this world just to conceive how it feels
i piss on buildings and lawn beneath a willow i kneel
how beautiful is the dawn when i get hold of my angst
and everything reappears

this is the time
there is no sign
this is the time
this is just for the sake of the rhyme

i'm accumulating in real time
all paranoia is mine
should i ever mention to feel fine
that's just for the sake of the rhyme
Track Name: Spiral
i never touched the other hemisphere
i walk the same streets every night
i see people feed the big machine
i have the easiest easiest time

oh could i share what it means to me
i play the lost fool out of time
let's go down south where they cannot see
how we wasted the most of our lives
how we spent the past years in a spiral

what's the time
i have missed the appointment
i hide
to come up with a lie to get by
did you hear the bad news
it's so wry to go on
with a smile
i'm not coming to work i won't pay the bills
i'll just let it all go for my world weariness is so dry
just a sad hypocrite

i tried to be who i'm supposed to be
a blend of expectations applied
i always end up as a hurried cheat
it's the greatest the greatest of crimes

what's the time...

i'm not coming home
i just stay away this time
you can call the cops
and tell them i'm nowhere to find

i'm not returning home
i'm going somewhere in the back of my mind
you can call the cops
and tell them i slipped away through the lines
Track Name: Spin
everything is possible, future's here to stay
there’s nothing left to die for
when all myths 'been swept away
the ocean's just a puddle
my life is just a wave
delayed

the earth is still in spin
your cry for peace unheard remains
the fool is still alive
all of his children grow insane
I don’t want to climb this ladder
for this life is just a game
we play

the fountainhead of evil is up that road ahead
the papers said they made it
planted a bullet in his head
so we got rid of him here
meet up again in hell
I don't believe in justice
the judges are impelled

the earth is still in spin
of common sense you talk in vain
the fool is still alive
all of his children grow insane
I don’t want to climb this ladder
for this life is not the strain
to blame

everything is possible you said then flew away
left on this rocky island
my wings refuse to sway
this ocean's just a giant
our lives become its waves

the earth is still in spin
your cry for peace you should retain
the fool is gaining comfort
all of his children are insane
I don’t want to climb this ladder
for this life is just the game
to play
