Seed of Wonder

Once my love stood still like a stagnant well for so long, you could hear
the song of spiders - strumming fibers
calling her to the web
my river sits in ebb
the little ones lean over - laughter echoes
bounce down the dark until it hits the floor
singin come on baby come on child - call your flo
like a seed of wonder - faith of mustard
o yeah, wo yeah

all is dark - all of the light is vanished it is gone
like something large
hovering high has covered up the sun
and something quiets the silken ringing
something breaks the strum...
a wish has finally come

ah oh ah no ah - all i want is to be writing
to be writing

once that wish did land
like a star in my hand - it burned and it burned and it burrowed in
soar through the source searching - hammer and ping
and tapped my virgin spring - and prime the vein with milk of mother
and wet my river bed
pearls strung up on silk thread - the starry one - beams a light
he’s working under - diggin through the dark gatherin particles
findin everything you ever wished for in your soul like a seed of wonder faith of mustard
ah no ah no ahhhno

finally that tapped spring come runnin like a river
my song it came - ahh eeeyeah ohoo noooay
right away i went writin i went writin
right away i was hummin i was hummin
right away i was singin i was singin
right away i was lovin - and goes something like...
light...
i haven’t always been under such a blue - only you
have seen such stormin in my life

Enemy

Beautiful
alone with my enemy
and share a bitter cup
of poisoning
my countenance
to see his face in mine
and follow every line
back to my enemy

(chorus)
you are mine
pennyroyal wine fly
like an innocent child
that followed every line
back to my enemy

beautiful
falling fast from a state of grace
and trusting there is a light
in darkest place
my dirty knees
hold the ground till it’s done with me
i’ve come to see that beauty is a thing
that is without grace

(chorus)

beautiful
at home with my history
and run the scarlet ink
with the tears of mercy
my battle wounds
lay to rest a treasure box
and thinkin of the scars
as the jewels of my story

Money

Money money makes the world go round
money money’ll make you change your sound
if the price is right
if the price is right

if you want paper
if you want gold and silver
learn now not later
people pay for what’s familiar
no need to know yourself too well
you can trade in that saga you tell
for the song you know will sell

if you want cheddar
if you want smoke and roll better
take off your sweater
to earn your varsity letter
it’s a virgin feast for all
see how gracefully they fall
into the mirrors on the wall
cuz if you want to belong you write a sing-a-long

(chorus)

where do we go
the freaks
on the fringe
when the edges are all rounded out
we just dangle out in space
you can call us when you need to find out
what the real stars are all about
time has turned and the scenery has changed
and all the books have
burned
but the lyrics remain
let the motherfucker burn let’s change the refrain
nobody need history
repeatin tin tin tin tin

(chorus)

if you want skrilla
if you’re a cheddar gorilla
stack up your bills as
you sign away your free will
there’s no need to represent
the truth of self has now been spent
moving from mortgage out of rent
cuz if you want to belong you write a sing-a-long:

(chorus)
