Track Name: light + music in my soul
Let a little light shine into
my cobwebbed room it's a
little musty, trust me, it has been
quite a while since I had any desire
to entertain again (for all my friends)

Everything in here has been left alone
I guess I must have been looking for something special
that I never found but nevermind
I never felt finer now that I'm home

light + music in my soul
light, perfervid lump in my throat

Happiness is somewhere in the space between
Bmaj7 and a Ddim or am I hallucinating?
Getting lost in the groove when I'm sauced
and I'm in the pocket with B
Pose a question with a chord progression
and answer with a melody

Everything in here will be shared with you
I only want to play some guitar, sing a song
and make a couple friends
Rinse and repeat, ad infinitum, and on and on
until the end

light + music in my soul
light, perfervid lump in my throat
Track Name: Brown Water
I've been drinking coffee in the morning to wake up
and drinking whiskey at night to fall asleep
I'm drinking brown water to feel alright
All day long and all night
Coffee in a pot, bottle of rye
Take it black and make it neat
Then ingest repeatedly
I don't need your juice, soda pop, or tea
No tequila, rum, or vodka for me
Track Name: Intersecting Lines
I have a most discerning eye
when it comes to intersecting lines
We crossed paths at a most interesting time
Fleeting, but too strong to deny
But you're on your own plane
and I'm doing the same

If I could just halt the turning of the earth

Frozen in space, stopped on a dime
Hold this point for two intersecting lines
We crossed paths at a most interesting time
Fleeting, but too strong to deny
But you're on your own plane
and I'm doing the same

If I could just halt the turning of the earth
the sun would shine down on us forever
but I can't decide where your line goes for you

Fleeting, but too strong to deny
Track Name: Rolling On The Floor
I love all of my friends
All the happiness they bring me
Although I can't quite articulate
exactly how their smiling faces move
when I crack a joke or when we're crying
and dying of laughter
I'm rolling on the floor, keep going
Track Name: Pickin' Plums
Time's a-wastin', don't y'all got backs to break
I got asses to kiss and deadlines to make
So buckle down and pick them plums out in the sun
Cuz we ain't leavin' til the job gets done

Life's a drag, devoid of any fun
When you're workin' pickin' plums

Out here in the arid lands of plum farms
We got fire ants, killer bees, and other charms
Long hours, low wages, and crushed dreams
Producin' ripe plums for the 'merican famblies

Life's a drag, devoid of any fun
When you're workin' pickin' plums
Track Name: New Color
Twenty-six, I've been hitting them bricks and wearing holes in the soles of my shoes
Took a few too many trips on the friendship ship and now she's sailed off into the blue

I just wanted to share something precious with you
Regardez-vous
Look at the new color
Do you see color too?
I'm just glad I can say that I met you

You said it best when your head was a mess, the words were "I don't even know you"
Although that's true, the mark you left in the cleft of my soul made it whole again so I thank you

I just wanted to share something precious with you
Regardez-vous
Look at the new color
Do you see color too?
I'm just glad I can say that I met you

When?
Now.
For
how
long
I'll
be
down
