Track Name: Five On Four
For example when i play
five notes sticking in a four notes frase
i know i have to play it over five beats way
‘cose when you say stop this odd line
fucking blows my brain
single sticking like a costant thinking
so i moved away

when i play
rhythm is painting brand new landscapes
i know i have to play it over my beats way
‘cose when you say stop this odd line
fucking blows my brain
well i won't hear you scream no more
fucking blows my brain

cose I please your pain
when you say stop this odd line
fucking blows my brain
well i won't hear you scream no more
fucking blows my brain

noose blooded face bruised
you still avoid but i'm still grooving
Track Name: Cage
Oh if i do my way everyday
hybernating the smell of drastic change and
only who leaves behind with those mind

whatever you sniff it
smoke it
eat it
just leave it on my way
your result is the same
addiction

if i do my way Everyday
climbing on the smell of drastic change and
only who leaves behind with those mind

whatever you sniff it
smoke it
eat it
just leave it on my way
your result is the same
addiction

have you ever smiled
running away
from the 99'
everyday
Track Name: Lay Down
LAY DOWN
ON THE NIGHT SOUND
BEGIN TO RUN
TILL YOU ARE DOWN DOWN DOWN

Long time lookin' at the sun
but now I cannot get hurt
I cannot get hurt
A blue neon sign reads: Luna Lounge
The only light in the room
outside, no more moon

It takes a while for a body to die
pain getting worse
I can't feel anymore
any man with sense could see
this job aint made for me
any man with sense could see
that you are only stuff

LAY DOWN
ON THE NIGHT SOUND
BEGINNIG TO RUN
TILL YOU ARE DOWN DOWN DOWN
Track Name: Virginia's Whale
I walk down the streets where the flowering branch
has fallen for party end
I do usual things under lighting flash
I pick up some violets from the bareground and
bind them together
something given you by me

today I am sick of prettiness
I miss the silence where
we could shelter

I miss the quiet of ordinary things
the paper-knife you did
stuck between the pages

I do usual things under lighting flash
you’re gone across the circle drawing finer the thread

I walk down the streets where the flowering branch
has fallen for party end
I do usual things under lighting flash
you’re gone across the circle drawing finer the thread
Track Name: Picture
Take a picture
where you are
you could see things through
through the dark

the dark
it works for a while
it works bye bye bye

i changed my life
pick out a smile
and i feel no blind
your shining smile
changed my life
and i feel no blind
don't waste it babe
dont loose yourself M J

Take a picture
of your home
you could see things through
through the dark

the dark
it works for a while
it works bye bye bye

i change my life
pick out a smile
and i feel no blind
your shining smile
changed my life
and i feel no blind
don't waste it
dont loose yourself M J
Track Name: 8 Blind Steps
leaves me motionless
wanting to scream
that if i don't open my eyes
you will fade away

do you like
walk your desert
a lot of snakes
stormy weather

It usually kicks in around
8 blind steps
when your brain loses its sense
slowly at first
almost like an itch
building to a maddening confusion

Now I’ve been playing around
step by step
all my trust and makes no sense
all my trust and makes no sense

do you like
walk your desert
a lot of snakes
stormy weather

It usually kicks in around
8 blind steps
when your brain loses its sense
slowly at first
almost like an itch
building to a maddening confusion
