Track Name: No Wave Strut
The No-Wave Strut

Dance, dance, dance
Children of the children of Calvinists.
Dance, dance, dance
Children of the lost generation.
Do the NO WAVE STRUT
And maybe you’ll feel like an optimist
Do the NO WAVE STRUT
And feel patience degrade into apathy…

Because nobody whose anybody isn’t waiting.

The world is a hole
The world is a hole
The world is a hole.
Children of the children of Calvinists,
Now you know.

Dance, dance, dance
Children born of exploding youth.
Dance, dance, dance
Feel the hunger of lust in the burden of proof
and it tastes just like you.

Do the NO WAVE STRUT
And feel alive and alright
Do the NO WAVE STRUT
And forget about the future tonight.

All my friends just do their drugs and wait
For the coming of the end of days.

The world is a hole
The world is a hole
The world is a hole.
Children of the children of Calvinists,
Now you know.

Dance, dance, dance
Children of the children of Calvinists.
Dance, dance, dance
Children of the lost generation.
Do the NO WAVE STRUT
And maybe you’ll feel like an optimist
Do the NO WAVE STRUT
And feel patience degrade into apathy…

Because nobody whose anybody isn’t waiting.

Track Name: You Are Free
You Are Free



No inscription

can feel its stone
and
 you don't feel it

but you are free.



Obelisks and
 monuments
are casting shadows
on our backyards

on the green earth

they're not shrinking
and 
you can't see it 

but you are free.



A mind's eye blinking

after High Noon

has come and gone

in an instant

aint no hindsight
aint no Sophistry

aint no deep breath


its just closed.


No loosed lipped seer

knows their own end
and
 you don't know it

but you are free.

Track Name: Tidal Waves
Tidal Waves

Here’s a start
Don’t rip your dreams your apart
And don’t swallow every heart
That takes you home.
So when you’re done
Getting by in spite of everyone
Don’t turn to run
For only pavement will catch your fall
Because the jungle floor’s all gone
And like a wounded animal with nowhere left to run
The breath still in your lungs
Won’t be enough
To guide you home again.

Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
For tidal waves and greater men than you will fade
Into the hubris of the coming end of days
Its gonna be loud
Gonna be loud
Gonna be loud and empty.

Nothing lasts forever
But good things start together
Right here, right now
Anytime
Anywhere.
Yah good things start together
But even the tightest knot must come untethered
Plagues and fire and stormy weather
Is where the end begins and beginnings figure out whether or not
They have the strength not to stop
And you’re young
You’re young and life’s just begun
So don’t wait for ancestors to pass you a sign through the death of the ones that you love
You could be strong
Little boy
Little girl
Rise above.

Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
For tidal waves and greater men than you will fade
Into the hubris of the coming end of days
Its gonna be loud
Gonna be loud
Gonna be loud and empty.

And you don’t have to cry to know you’re alive
And you don’t have to bleed to feel what you need
And you don’t have know which direction to go
But you should know by now, that only scarecrows and dead men stand still.

Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
For tidal waves and greater men than you will fade
Into the hubris of the coming end of days
Its gonna be loud
Gonna be loud
Gonna be loud and empty
