Strange Gods 04:40
Strange Gods in strange cities Making love All by themselves Heartbeats behind their shoulders And flashing screens Inside their hands No smoke now rises off the buildings But it can be seen twisting through the land Strange Gods in strange dwellings Taking drugs To ease their long lives Sad Gods out on the sidewalk Hoping to be fierce and wild

Sierra 04:43
Sierra You used to ride with me to school When you were in your prime Anxious look upon your face That I thought was my own Sierra You would hide behind the couch But we knew to find you there On the cold, hard concrete floor In the summer window sun Sierra Half-barking in your sleep Chasing whoknows through the yard You were a love of life You were a childhood

Death Fog in your eyes: Meets you like the dream ghost of a friend on the beach where he died; Death Fog in your eyes: Meets you when all is quiet and light and only loss is left alive Death Fog Won't miss you when You is gone Death Fog in your eyes: Makes you wish you'd strived a little more But you know that you will miss it when it is gone

Barges 05:14
Is it really like this now? Distance growing from the inside to the out Barges in the sky In the river barges floating floating floating off to die Has it always been this way? No breeze left to make your branches sway Barges washed up on the shore Like a lot of things I preferred the way they were before And is it really so wrong and crazy to be hung up on some words? Is it really so wrong and crazy to be caught up in other worlds? It'll never stay the same If the mind is gone the body will be sane Barges in straight lines In the river barges cutting cutting cutting their own time And is it really so wrong and crazy to be hung up on some words? Is it really so wrong and crazy to be caught up in other worlds?

Once you get outside Once the fur falls from your chest and Once the mountains all smell like piss and Nothing's even crying When the air in your face reminds you of old lovers' breasts and You know there's not a clean place left You are small again In the end you say, "Is this beauty or just fear of death" You are small again In the end you say, "Is this beauty or just fear of death"
