Track Name: Precinct XYZ
Nobody likes me
Everyone hates me
I have no friends in the world
and can go no further
I’ve fallen deeply for Precinct X-Y-Z

Made a deal with a stranger, who looked like an athlete
And away in a manger, O child O peace

The sands overflowing on my miscarriage grave
The hourglass shattering time for all its mistakes

Has a home,
feel safe
Till I go wandering
through Precinct X-Y-Z

There’s no intimacy
With some trumpeting angel
The ceaseless howling
Of shepherds diseased

Where the sun shines so much that you wish it were dark
And the shade is damp all alone in the park
A Holiday spent in a grave digger’s brothel
Built from the ditch with its ration of headstone

It’s unlucky, they say, to meet a priest before dusk Unless you’re a carpenter building wooden crosses The match you met kissing roulette The false dawn and The total eclipse

The Hardy twins in their emo disguise
Hardly surprised aint no brother of mine
The aging Pied Piper wearing cat pajamas
With gout from the neck to the fingertips

And the protest on the inside
Once belonged on the outside
Sculpting its sides
Becomes a circle

“The music’s gone
Well, I’ll sing you a song”
Insists the bald raven
Clicking its wings

From its early beginning
Already extinct
Looking for alternates
this is no ones land
Statues overturned
Somebody got mad
Somebody unloved
Wants to re-build the wall
The Wall, the Wall, the WALL

Don’t go looking for lonely
a pooling nominee
Mirandizing A-B-Cs
At Precinct X-y-Z
Track Name: Night Wing
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)

I’d do most anything for my little sweet night wing
If it wasn’t for the game love plays, and takes away the sweet night loving

She could be my sweet nite wing
Ever since I found out from within
That she kept my heart from wandering
Where did she go, it’s so dark in here?

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)

Don’t wanna look for another lover
I’m hard wired to all her mysteries
I overhear then want to disappear
Show me recover and new beginnings

She could be my sweet nite wing
But I let go and she broke free
Then he showed with his heart on his sleeve
And I can’t see cause it’s so dark in here

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)

Oh oh oh oh oh
I refuse to remain paralyzed
And inscribed these words on a park fence

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
“Leather jackets find us dangerous
love me till the stars quit
Cause the rock n roll never died
There’s still smoke in your eyes”

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)

I’d do most anything for my little sweet nite wing
If it wasn’t for the game love plays that compromise the sweet night loving

The same ol song keeps repeating
The singer keeps hopelessly debating
“She could be
She could be
She could be”
Still crave the night, but hunger for the light

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh (2x)

Oh oh oh oh oh
I refuse to remain paralyzed
And inscribed these words on a park fence

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
“Leather jackets find us dangerous
love me till the stars quit
Cause the rock and roll never died
There’s still smoke in your eyes”
Track Name: Starry
She wore the badge that I gave her to the party
It took me weeks to make it, Oh I am so happy
She pranced engaged with excitement, my eyes turned watery
And by the might reciting a verse in Starry

It was pulse and lighted, trident-sided
Sparking graphic equalizers
It fastened Mars first, for a half-sec
No Venus sky could ever mimic

On the spot sat the wheel
Heavy’d on green decaying randomly
Spotlight detected it was there
Deflecting mighty crystal starry glare

On the spot sat the wheel
Heavy’d with green decayed so morphine
Night Camouflage detected it was there
Deflecting mighty crystal starry glare

One spin on its last gear
And one glare that could change my mind again

She wore the badge that I gave her to the party
Track Name: Interludes
Now the day has moments it competes with the peace found in evening’s end
Interludes that come and go as breezes, to heal with gentle vent

So many tic-toc ticking conflicts
I need to be distracted
Where the daydream collects its dew
And dizzy is the afternoon

There’s a kind of hush I want to achieve before every sunset
Keeps the empires of my trials at sea, away from continent

To heal, to heal with gentle vent
To heal, to heal with gentle vent

I know some people who prefer the night, they long for its stillness
Yet some nights the wind blows cold and dim, in the day we might see them

The fishing village stressed
The catch is in the net
As a pie’s inspected for a plum
Their interlude has just begun

Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo….
Track Name: Already a Ghost
Already a Ghost
It’s not like

everyone who lived here a year ago
Has gone and moved on

They’re just fixing things

and the things they fix are not windowless,
empty barns

You’re growing progressively unaware.

Nah Nah Nah Nah-nuka
Nah Nah Nah Nah-nuka
Nah

Commander and Warrior I don’t remember you so unprepared

It’s scary, when someone calls your name how you just stare.


Your wispiness

demands and phantoms standing by
ever so misty

What’s there left to hide

when you invisibly run into me
and turn to grey

And friends, the used-to handle objects but nothing more

Nah Nah Nah Nah-nuka
Nah Nah Nah Nah-nuka
Nah

Punctuations mispronounced speaking backwards Latin

Jet-set, In-transit, walking through the walls


Nah Nah Nah Nah-nuka
Nah Nah Nah Nah-nuka
Nah


You blank,

wandering accustomed scenes
bottomed and drab

The mid-Summer

is shaping, waiting
for your return

“I fly try” you whisper in a funeral tone

I ask “What does that mean?” as you epitaph a monumental stone
Track Name: Versuchskanichen
Did you ever dance the dance
In which you had to take a chance
Cause the long and lonely nights no longer granted you the gifts
Of singular deliverance

Exhausted from resistance, loves insistence to posses

And the ballroom is so big
There’s people dancing everywhere
The orchestra is locked in awe
Wild cards turn into draws
Man, there oughta be a law

Here comes the hardest part, and it’s so easy to laugh at yourself


Versuchskaninchen
Future and ancient
I first heard the German word from a Senorita

That code it follows is in tiny fragments
Releasing all your countdowns where there are no endings

Spin yourself around, in city and country
But don’t look away for too long at what’s right in front of you

Every morning I promise I will change and change
(Cada mañana, te prometo que va a cambiar)
I hear Los Mariachis tuning up to play
Track Name: Give it up for the cops
The cops they must be busy now
Closing the books on another tale
Dedicated, graveled and rowed
And when I call them on the phone, they say

Crime make no appointment
Leave that to the full moon, silver and thin

Trying to grow into my shirts
A complicated catch, mean and innocent
Protect my peers from the infra-red
You want me well-behaved, yet disheartened?

I still hear the clicks of the silencers
After your dirty gun fell in the mud

They’ve been trained; They don’t want you to be afraid

Gangstarring , White collars, Goth dressings

Post-street modern dollars and cents
Your shoes aren’t made to run where it never stops
Give it up for the cops, Give it up for the cops


When you’re straight ahead and I look left
That creates two versions of the same event
Free-agent walks bully poet
Guilty bystand on friendly fire

Countenance suspicious
How to tell from the looks how the mind works

They’ve been trained; they don’t want you to be afraid

No sequence, turf is fixed, marks and dents

You can go on leaving them alone oh you can still go on you’re so lucky to be on your own
Give it up for the Cops; Give it up for the Cops


They’ve been trained, I can no longer be afraid

Misperceived variance, Love-to-hate

As long as I don’t hurt someone I won’t give up the right to be wrong
And give it up for the cops; give it up for the cops
Track Name: Return of Iron Man
Every day I keep myself in check
I don’t have to pretend I can hang with the rest

They’re taking away so many things
They’re taking away so many things
What’s dear to your precious heart could be next

Mister, don’t ask for my id
It’s bound to change based on your followings
And Please keep Graceland well-preserved in Memphis, Tennessee

Field artillery used to pay my rent
The Red Cross came and struck down my inclement tent

Those provoking motions, nevermind
Those provoking motions, nevermind
We’re still living here though we may not see eye to eye

Mister, don’t ask for my id
It’s bound to change based on your followings
And Please keep Graceland well-preserved in Memphis, Tennessee
