Track Name: Life Given to Quiet Places
life given to quiet places

public places give private meaning
to facilitate one’s involvement in word and number
with great momentum without guessing in game
in great momentum recognition of becoming
promulgating delenda ...
this public posting showing the number of moments
a conviction was grazed by its own authority
light hitch to bring back ... this happens all of the time
haecceity wondering, plain appreciation
in the meantime, delenda ...
prompting out again
what flourishes so very straight-faced
clued-up
fanciful institution
on the greenway, in every scene
upland on the wheels, stopping in field
queue. midway. wanting audible aid
(but) it’s not its place to say
between one and nothing must be something
like the greatest alternative to boredom
life given to quiet places
we must go clean
outside age even in the midst of all that surrounds us
life given to quiet places
with what one thinks
worth watching
such know-how beckons us
to make the most of it
in keeping with an onset, decide and remain
immoveable, repose in simple time that’s taken
to consider. acknowledge. the lot and the gain.
yielding to the value of suitable intentions
one blue-blooded, delenda ...
beeline, ready-made onus, everyone is waiting
in well-being create right through the block
and folding and do this with the knowledge that it is okay
to make a very big deal out of nothing at all
cue the dab hand, delenda ...
re-directing the self
all setting out, feeling like grade school
roll-call
fanciful institution on the greenway in every scene
upland on the wheels, stopping in field
queue, midway. wanting audible aid. (but) it’s not its place to say “between one and nothing is content
(that) every single one of us can make”
control. derring-do with a stamp on
“sent right under my own name”
golden mean became the center of attention
at ease in place, odds-on impression that’s made
rightful terrain entailing on it’s behalf
the build. a brain. a population that saves
itself. living. day-to-day watching it become
in, and out, and everywhere
a congruent theme
we are all accountable
singled out, could carry
weight and volume. headstrong
candid. widespread. top flight
in function
i’m in
fanciful institution
on the greenway, in every scene
upland on the wheels, stopping in field
queue. midway. wanting audible aid.
(but) it’s not its place to say
between one and nothing must be something
like the greatest alternative to boredom
life given to quiet places
we must go clean
outside age
even in the midst of all that surrounds us
life given to quiet places
with what one thinks
worth watching
such know-how beckons us
to make the most of it
(and) to be the moment that’s all around
Track Name: Simpleton
simpleton

the corrective nature
for the best
it’s mode can often be nice

home-ruling acts as guest to
what was sent here
tutelage every which way
just to keep one in place

simpleton
condone me
and simpleton, what will you do now?

waiting in the cameo role
it does them no good
something that leaves one untouched
maintenance is what they have

simpleton condone me
and simpleton, what will you do now?

the corrective nature
for the best
it’s mode can often ...

taken to preservation
so hackneyed it stutter-steps
calling to wet dog authority
sometimes, somehow for the best

simpleton
condone me
and simpleton, do what you will now!
Track Name: We Colored You
we colored you

we colored you the same color
left no distinction
and then we tried again
foul play it’s happening now
it’s okay we have a relation
pull back and going outside
to wave into the window
and how it came to a look of freedom
in one. pulled out. to the next undertaking
eclat, dividing a moment one half, the tough and the tame
the other, with picture in hand
to show off what’s already made
at once ahead, common defeat
kicks the ball, driving. embolden man
in tandem, we run. long leg fall back
thinking victory, it does one good
field-day exaltation
blue ribbon and try again
entry-level trusted
leeway gives itself a name
between hights and hoorays
and with a look that says,
“we did well today”
as we go back home ...
home-made will in parental skill
showing us the hue of edification
that outlives the coming of age
in guesswork and knowing the same
to giving a quiet control
the tracing, a lifetime ahead
amending turn accidental stray
falling on the outside of two open-ended
duo, created a pace
was painted in no time at all
resilience, dripping in the hall
now hanging in a bathroom light
a little lad running success
with one hand held out, coming right through
in color volume, stentorian
taking victory, it does one good
field day exaltation
blue ribbon and try again
entry-level trusted
leeway gives itself a name
between heights and hoorays
and with a look that says,
“we did well today”
as we go ...
together, in quiet, with love
Track Name: Bird and Binocular
bird and binocular

keep tabs on what can
make it’s home with paper
directly above in tree
where you kneel under
and give a look up
to see what is seen
through an ever-ready (that) goes in-between
and waves at you for attention
right then and right there
sanctity
in the lens we see
flight control, headway in daily life
picks the spring to come out
one can be with them then
and see all that’s necessary
entelechial wildlife
bird and binocular
learning to live without the
reminder each day
entelechy uniform
bird and binocular
learning to live within what’s
expected of us
quid pro quo says to you
“please, get up off the ground now”
was time spent so well
so well that face was cut all around
in the undergrowth
leave the beginning
that always begins again and again
reiterating high and low
“history perches
nonpareil
(when) doing oneself
the favor of de-domestication”
newcomer
“animal kingdom ahead”
picks the spring to come out
one can be with them then
and see all that’s necessary
entelechial wildlife
bird and binocular
learning to live without the
reminder each day
entelechy uniform
bird and binocular
learning to live within what’s
expected of us
Track Name: Colby and the Devils
colby and the devils

colby and the devils they played a part
sounds absurd because that’s just what it was
pounding into place a manner which stands
head down waiting for reactions

twenty different directions all the same
and plenty of what others could do without
but degradation has reason to be blamed
for candour can make one quite humble

brouhaha throughout a long shelf life
the essential in-joke a long shelf life

folly around they really mean well
affronting a conscience that’s so commonplace
commonplace no animal aims
they can’t see what the devils want to give them
a wellington up the forearm
and dribble on the books they read
children how they just love the picture page
comes to life in front of everyone around
“jesting routine, comedy foundation
jesting routine, comedy foundation”

a reception held in an open space
loyalty it says, “make the most of it”
never seen someone flip the bill like that
detachment goes such a long way

brouhaha throughout a long shelf life
the essential in-joke a long shelf life

bevy the great nabbing what it thinks
closes to consideration of the self
program notes give explanations
obliging one to think about what’s written
a spectacle that puts color in
group skin unlike the single castaway
who makes the effort all along the way
and says that we can do better than that
“jesting routine, comedy foundation
jesting routine, comedy foundation”

colby and the devils they played a part
sounds absurd because that’s just what it was
pounding into place a manner which stands
head down waiting for reactions ...

*inspired by and loosely based on the lars von trier film The Idiots
