Track Name: Meadows
in my life
I have spent too much time
grazing dark meadows
child in a classroom
profound revelation
no one's immune

time spent in mind tones
heart full of sadness
all too familiar
those that have passed
like faces on a carousel
all is forgiven

the drone of a sermon
statues stare in silence
all for the living
walk through the door
somehow the daylight
seems different today

stare into the wind
learn to accept it
find your religion
Track Name: Carousel
sometimes the story tells the character
upon a raft, upon a stormy sea
always a jester, never a thief
roll like thunder in the valley

and now the flesh sustains the bones
eyes of wisdom staring from the stones
sword leaning, tarnishing against a tree
lies in the open now to be taken by thieves

and the seasons spin without a care at all
shadows from the world outside like squirrels on the wall
the elm leaves swept away by autumn wind
They leave you longing to be free again....

the benevolent will bow and pass
to an unanswered oaken door
unwillingness to heed a map
or the path of those before

when you look into the hourglass
is it reflection that you see?
and not the mound of time that's past
or the sand cascading slowly

have you come to terms with your perception
not seeing the supply
you can't invert the hourglass
when both your hands are tied

when you look into the hourglass
is it reflection that you see?
and not the mound of time that's past
or the sand cascading slowly
Track Name: Frown
Ron read radar
six tents he said
farmer in a train
trying to run instead

bear in a trainers bed
try pen and a busted
Poolie Ann, and a trusted friend
ran for the tank again

frown an intrinsic clown
eyes up and down
trolley did the tin stink?
four minds then thumped the lead

think real hard
run to the next event
talk backwards to the rat
soak the water through your collar

punch the new wet juniper
and tell her that your strange
file in the mind corps
tilt the slate

Ty said a diamond lane
four tenths said a rat's brain
Ted-a Felierosa for a kids name

time, a line, a timber tine
a holy roller tinker toller
filler of a rototiller
flop onto a blue line
and slide into the ripper water
fornile flip and type a wire
tike a niptide tight grip
fight a firefighter for a friend
shirk out of the dark again
for the warm
for the warm
for the warm
for the warm
for the warm
Track Name: Tiny Rings
and as the lenses aligned
I saw a lonely planet
with tiny rings around
alas! out of reach and out of time
till my fields and ponder
this discovery of mine
