I could be this sky tonight, double black and full of light In the wings, so blood-hot, blood-sweet and safe as a naked baby Favorite one, who knew we are a big blue bird up and flying We jingle us along, this same old different song's a backhand crack to love But would we sing the same, Private plane Silver machines to your homeland or a flight out of sight You're a star before I wake and I swing through these ten-cent highs in a glitter gown of pavement thread sure I got time, and of who I am, where I am bound, a dollar lost, a dollar found as you keep walking the street But would it seem the same, Private plane Silver machines to your homeland or a flight out of sight
Waterbird 04:05
Imagine puffs of daylight singe your mind Bets from old days deign to open In the pick of an hour when time is not so tired Shake your head, come off the bourbon plane Where that goes is always nowhere A blaze of women's tears into your open mouth like a waterbird Press for high-light purges of your pack (array of infotainment on your back) The view would hold so high and still like Chinese lions and have its charms And good would be this long but better was gone
This is the hole that holds the spokes that turn the wheel that gets you going This is the space inside a jar that will hold anything you want This is the space between the wood that makes this house where we live a home
High Rise 04:32
High rise, hit the sea, playgirls shock your men gladmouth disagree Box your bitter playground, let your mother kiss your wall And stand before the man alone eleven brothers tall Raghound make a feast Hunchback make the scene cup their hunger in your bell Riptide keep it quiet, work for what is spoken So only bread is broken
