Track Name: Universe And Chorus
she made her way through the milky way
an interstellar stray
spends her days voyaging through the night

from privileged birth now she's down to earth
the first for whom I'm cursed
with this thirst to make her my last

gravity leaves when she's by me
I bounce up and downtown
like a flea
but suddenly a tractor beam of smiles pulls me in
and with a grin

I go off to a place south of Saturn
where life's more than trite carbon based matter and we're

two bits of dust that with joy caved to lust
after we kissed Jupiter's big spot blushed
off to a land left untouched Earth's beauty seemed so hushed
like the roadways we take to the skies
Mercury and Mars are only red light
black holes not pot holes and no cops at all
none in sight
it's dawn and we arrive

There's toxic fumes and plumes of cyanide
the gas seems cleaner on the other side

oh, my constellation lacked a star
lost in cosmo slums afar
Track Name: Mr. Wright
maybe he won't sell the bicycle shop
his dreams of flight won't amount to a hop
head in the clouds feet glued to jealous ground
conducts a parade known to start when it rains

facing a love that Newton's apple banned
to leave the heart land and on her heart land
fighting for flight but he's no Mr. Wright
from sea level what's in her's so far from sight

and so he prays
for windier days

take to the skies on a heavenly claw
his earthly binds taken to with a saw

a fatal game of twister to catch her eye
though he missed her he tried
once he kissed her he died

blue skies gained their reigns on the rain
his complex machine now something we call plain
she might come back but he'd still be the same
both return to from which they came

blue skies gained their reigns on the rain
his complex machine now something we call plane
she might come back but he'd still be the same
both return to from which they came
Track Name: First Date
first date my heart is a-flutter with
butterflies they smell the flower that's near
it's clear he's a twelve out of ten when
he's around I'm a penguin
with a barrow of free fish abounding

first date better late than never better
now than late I hope he finds this clever and
well worth the wait
he seems she what I longed for
written every song for
was it luck or fate?

so sublime
I'd be happy to be his concubine
he's arms around me like an ivy vine
he's so sublime

Track Name: La Vie en Rope
La Vie en Rope:

Victims of pigmentation
The black sheep of the herd
Blackbirds caged by crows, though
Speak no words

White out on the pages
Of her history
Mem'ries dashed by lashes
Stashed safely

Pining to be as free as her service to he
Misery loves company
And good ole boys seem friendly
As any

Wolves in sheep's clothes look tasty
To other wolves

She cooks up revenge, and serves it cold

A dark spring is in bloom
A shadow with a shady past
And now marooned
All the skeletons from before exhumed

His untrue colors show
He's at the end of someone else's rope
And wishes that the hounds had been more slow
