all the soothsayers want to be booty shakers, truly I curse all those romantic dimwits but maybe in there was a house that could fit my shoes, and my car, and my imposter vintage guitars when I go to sleep, I freeze when I am kept awake, I thaw I look upon a field of iced over dreams baby in this life I am thawing meat when the fall comes I will shed a layer and I will try to care about the sentimental tug unless I become an ornamental dud

I'm the shadow of a squirrel thinking about my girl and how I turned to stone from my youthful gelatinous form and how it smells in summer time when the youth are primped and prime to reach out from the winter and leave family dinner's behind in classic form a tube of toothpaste is reborn with contortionist bones used up but free of scorn I'm the shadow of a dog with an invisible fence around my yard thinking about tasty meals and how one can deal with the proportion of this years crop yield versus what you actually take home do you love what you take home?

pronounced dead, at the scene you were in where the wealth grew, from within when did you begin rockin and rollin when we burn out when we rust we'll leave behind heat, exhaustion, and dust we want to know about the mystery world science show it don't cost but it sure as hell don't spare the pain and loss cloudy disposition towards all the things we're into cloudy like my eyes when they wake to the non-surprise that everybody is half-baked stoned and stupefied pass every set of eyes they've all rolled over and they've died

separate g-d's children into separate buildings forced to look around but you only vomit once holy mackerel! how do we put up with this stuff!? when we go 'round again when we go 'round a heretic or cleric? don't know who has planned this planet (they're nuts!) I gotta bone to pick man, but the weeds have grown too thick smokin', dopin', mal reportin' hopin' for a fix slip until you skate into an unintended fate baby, maybe I need a beer truckin in the present leave only the crescent (for us) balance on the point slide down to the crux, the joint roll another number the road is getting dark tonight

I became a raisin thought I was a grape then along came a big old foot and squished the juices from my face I wanted to protect you from everything that was hard but instead I became softer, more tender in your palm everywhere I go I will show the coolest side of the pillow turn it over and you'll see the smiling face of raisin bran helping you get through your dreams I'm already missin you how are your calmer moments? are they dense like milk duds? wishing you were Paul Bunyan swinging axes at tree trunks I wanted to be your man for every time and place don't let your love diminish now that I have egg on my face

he's gotta a can-do-'tude a bitchin' new pair of shoes but the only thing that causes him any fright what if life was just a saturday night? couldn't get out of his head in time he's goin' down with the band he was a country legend with a rhinestone ledger keepin' tabs on all who passed him by saying things like “I wont play nice” “til I fold myself into the night sky” he's goin' down with the stars he's goin' down with ain't anything at all he's goin' down and it wont be long he was burning up fast hopin' he would last through the night to see his honey pie said, “I got a new song that's real nice” “Its only a few chords, but the vibe is tight” he's goin down with a hit he'll sure as hell be known for it he's goin down, he'll see ya there in a little bit

I didn't plan a party cuz I didn't think it was your thing but when you saw the empty room I could tell immediately I'm still shopping for a ring its on the to do list, its the very first thing but in the meantime, ill bake you a treat will you love me for nothing? Will you love me for free? My favorite songs by David Berman are the ones about Nashville and all his hurtin' cuz in this world, of misguided matrimonial cues whats a young boy and girl to do?

baby baby baby, don't. mortal joy is against the ropes swinging punches in the air lets have fun, they declare the undertaker has undertaken a new way of undertaking in a choke or sleeper hold, he'll whisper “you're getting old” remember when worldwide wrestling filled your head framed your conception bout what we do with all the bad dudes out in the world misbehavin' body slam or finger jam a world of death flashes in the pan folded chair cracks on your back tag team partner has gone for a snack as you lay down for the count the megatron sings your swan song

all you need in this life is love and bunches of kisses and hugs to protect from the bottom of your heart cause when it is young it carries the weight of aging, becoming undone so we hold on for fun all in the blink of an eye the Shadow world comes to life all the dark borders choke out light what lives in the day pushes against night

late night, I put on country records cuz when I met her, I told her I played country music but I will dance and lose it, just so I don't lose you so rid me of these cowboy-ish tendencies and bring me to my knees and to the dance floor where I will shake my rump so I don't become a saturday night stump dancers unite before, your legs turn to worms in night

along the horizon we shared a view from a room over the train tracks choo-choo, chugga-luggin through the night the baron is out sight So we bleed the sky of ethanol and leave whats only bright we heard an eerie tune come over the clock radio it was a country waltz, you think this is our first rodeo? it takes two to tango with a ghost albeit most times what we fear is what our reflection holds ...our ghoulish souls while the candle burns behind our orange tears tip-toe'in across fallen leaves to the house that keeps frozen memories of when we felt as one in relation to our common man candy corn in his hand and a starter kit with just add water instant quicksand we heard a haunted hymn come over the car tape deck it was a spooky dirge if you ain't already been spooked yet

accelerated path to disaster it wasn't the way I wanted things to go down but when we shared a laugh was hopin' it would last but it didn't, now I am lecturing you about you once taught me not that I am waiting for things to get better cuz whats better than picking at a scab? accelerated path to disaster it wasn't the way I wanted things to go down
