Flower 03:24
Tear it down To the ground Build a new flower At the root wake the will To the sky we can build A new flower In the dark underground In the dark can be found A new power Up from earth it flows From the earth you know In the air congeals In the airy fields Forks a thousand times Forge a thousand lines Cross electric sky Cause electrify Raining sheets of light Rays of shining light Down to earth again Down in urgent rain Seep into the ground Deep into the sound Growing on repeat Sowing on the seed

100 Souls 03:03
Brand new suit For 100 souls Brand new car For 100 souls Brand new house For 100 souls Brand new face For 100 souls Is it mine For keeps Yes it’s mine Forever and ever Brand new lease on life For 100 souls Brand new soul For 100 souls
3.
Star 05:08
You are a star A bright shining star in a universe of stars You are a supernova Put us all together and watch the fireworks You are your own center Every swirling center has gravity It's hard to see the whole sky Until we return to stardust

I’m not going to Earth today There’s fire instead of rain And the sky’s a poison stain I’m not going to Earth today I’m not going to Earth today The place has gone insane And it’s overtaxing my brain I’m not going to Earth today The trees are all decayed And the ground is giving way So I’m not going to Earth today

Roof Song 04:05
When everything is heavy The roof is creaking When everything is heavy The roof will collapse When everything’s too heavy The roof is falling When everything’s too heavy The roof is falling down I’ll be your shelter Safe from the welter And we’ll wait For a change in the weather And we’ll make A change in the weather

Tower to pilot Tower to pilot Lone and aloft in the sky Roger over Aerodromer Above and beyond, the sublime Outside of time In the sublime What is coming Radar humming Go off-route vector and climb Civil twilight Fading skylight Push through, find the sublime Outside of time In the sublime Tower to pilot No shrinking violet Up past all reason and rhyme Crossing over Endless rover Above and below, the sublime Outside of time In the sublime Aeronautical wing walker Pilot in command

I dream a museum Micro gallery Next door to my house In the northern county I dream a museum Midnight gallery Walls black and open One exhibit to see Under light a blue vase Potent as a city Silent, unmoving Except the way it moves me Everything that I thought was far away Has always been near Unmoving inside a gallery Within a blue vase I am a museum Potent as a city Inside the walls I live in One exhibit within Silent, unmoving
