Track Name: Life Estate
dreamy eyed about that place
lets go for a ride across the waves
sheltered from the city's rays and just in case
i brought along a topographic map of our heads and ours hearts
and our face

everybody here agrees
that there's a crisis
you can see it in their eyes
no time to sympathize
take a battering ram to the trees
turn them on their on species, put a desert between
make 'em walk a thousand miles to the sea, the only place that they can get clean

built into the wood grain, a life estate

wait until i die and then i guess you'll have my property
wait until i'm underground, it doesn't matter to me
Track Name: Wabbit
sitting outside my garden gate
i approach you tremble and you shake
no chance for me, so less chance for you
put you inside a big blue crate
throw him a carrrot, say "what a cliche"
no chance for me, so less chance for you

your'e laying down flies buzzing round
eyes eaten out your'e dreaming now
blood flowing, blood flowing...

now your'e up past some big gold gates
sitting back, sippin' lettuce flavored shakes
no chance for me, and what luck for you
cuz now im stuck here with your shape
rabbit i didn't even know your name

with a shovel in hand i carry you off
put you in the land and just cover it up
Track Name: Nitwit
nitwit, jump ship
don't hit your head on the way down
don't let me slip
don't let me become part of the ground

I look out my window it teaches me how to breathe
take my first steps outside and never second guess or retreat
oh what a dream
the worlds not what it used to be, but i can still dream

nitwit, shut lip
don't quit, surrender or apologize
forget bullshit
life's still a kick even with the flies
Track Name: Land Legs
run as fast as i can go
turning into an animal
i hope i'm welcome here
hope my fear is suppressed to the point where none can tell
the world can't touch me when i'm in my shell

and the ice is melting now
exposing the blue, blue ground
i know my feet can bare
the friction of the grass, the rubber of my boots are married
and it lets me run as fast as i can go

everywhere's the road when your'e driving with your eyes closed
everything is justified in another time zone
wandering down an ally wearing just a blindfold
don't you know the animals are just as bold
Track Name: Make
drama plucks no heartstrings, waisting your time
god heals no beestings, waisting your time
i'm uninvolved...

kind words won't fool me, waisting your time
death threats won't move me, not on my life
i'm uninvolved...

make a promise to myself
i'll get up i'll go out

make a promise
break a promise
