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

Brown Water 02:30
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

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

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

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

New Color 03:00
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
