Bicycle 02:30
Bicycle It was a miracle I got swept away Interdimensional Across time and space Well you were calling on a local line The reception was fine But I wasn’t receiving Because at first I couldn’t read the signs Held up between the lines Behind the heavy breathing And it was physical I could feel you there It isn’t logical But it was you I swear I had my doppelgänger bolt the door As I sat on the floor And constructed the notions And although foggy they sure sounded swell And they commingled well With the calamine lotion And it was magical I have got no words It’s incontestable Though it sure sounds absurd Now every person that I meet is me There’s no longer a we Just a you and a me that’s you And though it seems as though I’ve lost the thread All the stuff in my head And the things I was thinking through … I got on my bicycle Got on my bicycle Got on my bicycle!

Blows My Mind If when I perceive Everything appears in Mind And what I receive Doesn’t come in from outside Then is there a field In which everything resides? What do I believe? I believe it blows my mind And as I look into the eyes Of the profane I see the divine And you know it blows my mind Now I can see For miles and miles And now it feels Like it was the first time I’ve been falling right out of time Wrapped in red-yellow orange rind How am I supposed to relate it? Let alone integrate it? Just ain’t no way to describe Because you know it blows my Mind As I look deeper into your eyes And move beyond a horizon line Into kaleidoscope colors Bleeding into each other Painting new shapes in my mind How can I relate it? How can I relate it? How can I relate it? I believe it blows my mind

Wunderkind (Part 2) Well you took it on the chin Then it all began again Then you took it in the mixed nuts And the guts Well that’s what you get for flying Your airplane in living rooms Chasing women in the dunes Tied to balloons Well you went out with a bang As a line of dummies sang A Lithuanian hymn way out of key They went ahead and formed a band When you flew over their land That’ll only play its songs In key of dummy It was impossible to tell With that god-forsaken smell And no visibility if you could fly Well it only goes to show That there’s nothing you can know Unless you see it through the lens Of your own eye You can’t remember most of it Or the self-promotion kit That you brought along for all your fans to see But the good thing about the past Is that it doesn’t ever last You can just turn it in To what it needs to be You were falling behind And you got lost in your mind I reached out But you were gone, gone, gone Fallen angel Fallen angel

Shadow Shaper In the night I go surfing On the ocean For a little while In my dreams I ride the breakers Shadow shaper Bending it my way Took the alternate route Down is the upside of upside down I pinned the needle down Just for the record I skipped out I skipped out I skipped out In the light Of pure knowing Where I’m going Everybody knows When we sleep There ain’t no mystery So come and kiss me I’ll be waiting here Took the alternate route Down is the upside of upside down I pinned the needle down Just for the record I skipped out I skipped out I skipped out In my dreams I ride the breakers Shadow shaper Bending it my way

Meat Jamaica 03:55
Meat Jamaica Someone dropped a dime upon the subway line Landed on a track making a little stack It’s magical the way randomness does display Underlying systems beneath surface waves Meat Jamaica She receive She will take ya in When she breath Trying to make a splash without required cash Ace up sleeve despite all this I still believe Shooting arrows from the heart, the ancient Art The wisdom of the way that mama used to say Don’t get distracted Go toward the Light Never you worry She will guide you right Time to Meat Jamaica You’ve been retrieved You’re not forsaken Meat Jamaica Go toward the Light She will take ya in Give up The fight

The Bartender Jesus waits at the bar downstairs He pulls the shade on the setting sun He preps his hands, he knows now what’s at steak Bloody rare, she’ll take it to go Oh Jackie O I believed in you But now I know What I have to do is tear down  The one I wanted So much to dance with And now I’m haunted And I can’t live with, myself … or you Counting hours as the clock winds down Out of time and out of space All these moments collapsing into one All those tears and all that fun Oh Jackie O I used to dream of you Now I don’t know If it was me or you in the dream In which one of us Didn’t wake up  As the other rose And put on makeup For the boys This is how it turned out This is how it goes I’ve been taken in I’m breathing through the nose I’ve got two options left But only one to choose I’ve got nothing left … to lose  I’ve got nothing left … to lose I’ve got nothing left … to lose

Keep Me In Mind Girl you gotta keep me in mind Gotta keep me in mind I think about you all of the time Baby all of the time I’ve been waiting here for a while By the banks of the Nile Girl you gotta keep me in mind Gotta keep me in mind Girl you gotta keep me in mind Gotta keep me in mind I think about you half of the time Baby half of the time Girl you gotta keep me in mind Gotta keep me in mind I think about you half a the time Baby half a the time Waiting on the line for a deal On the line for a meal Sussing out the things I could steal And the things that I feel Bringing up the back of the line With a bottle of wine Girl you gotta keep me in mind Gotta keep me in mind Baby have you heard of denial? Have you heard of denial? It’s been going on for a while Ain’t just a river in Brooklyn Girl you gotta keep me in mind Gotta keep me in mind I think about you some of the time Baby lotta the time Keep me Keep me Keep me in mind

Hey Superman 02:27
Hey Superman How did i end up here? Who am i supposed to be? Somebody left instructions But i think I mislaid them How long have we been traveling? Where did i miss my turn? We already passed the exit Gotta learn To remember The things i forget Before i forget them Look up in the sky Is it a bird a plane or just A cloud formation That is leaping over bald-faced facts In a single bound? What have i been destroying? With whom have i been in league? Where is the hall of justice? Superman Is flying over He doesn't see us Hey Superman We're down here We're down here

Edge Of The Night (For Danny Torrance) When the world’s gone awry And there’s no way out that you can buy And you’re losing your way In the hedges of a horror maze I’ll arrive with flashlight Cutting through the blackest night I’ll get to you When there seems no way out And there’s no one there to hear you shout When you can’t find the words To express how you hurt I’ll come round with knife The protector of life I’ll cover you At the edge of the night When you’re lost and you’re frightened In the dead of the winter Night I will be your light When there’s a way There’s a will When there’s a catch There’s a kill But the monster In this film Has got A surprise Coming his way At the edge of the night When you’re lost and you’re frightened In the dead of the winter Night I will be your light Your light

Oh Believe Me If We were buying a lemon Got ourselves in a squeeze Shopped around for a four-door Seems now they grow’m in trees Satisfaction on Sunday Got me singing the blues A body builder in Bombay Lifting barbells on the news Oh Believe Me If you could only see me now Got my milking fingers firmly on the cash cow I was on a vacation When I received a call A lady asked for my information And so I gave her it all Seems that there was a mix-up Somebody down at the bank She said she’d fix it and hung up I called her back and said thanks Oh Believe Me If you could only see me now Got my milking fingers firmly on the cash cow And it all could change but it can’t get stranger than now (Bridge 1) I can see you walking in the sun down Wearing facial gestures of an undressed clown (Bridge 2) Heavily sedated he Went under to the  Sound of bowling pins Falling from a ceiling Fan who got his autograph In crayon Ma genta red she   Opened up a  Door that led to other doors That opened In to the place where  Everything began The film reran Someone was fleeing from lawmen Got in the back of a van It was the son of Samantha Or the daughter of Sam They made a run for the border Quite unaware of the risk To everything there’s an order Saved on an invisible    Disc Is there anything I can say to melt the ice? Something nondescript that’ll leave me seeming nice There’s a football game on a television screen In a mind inside of a mind  Having a lucid dream In a mind inside of a mind  Having a lucid dream In a mind inside of a mind  Having a lucid dream

What Do You Do (When The Drugs No Longer Work)? The proportion was correct Should’ve lasted ’til dawn Everything was right on But something about it Just somehow seems wrong Cause the feeling is gone So what do you do When the drugs no longer work? When the drugs no longer work? Then suddenly it hits you You’re as far out as hell From the heaven you’ve known The one thing you counted on Has left you lost and alone Mumbling, “There’s no place like home.” So what do you do When the drugs no longer work? When the drugs no longer work? You walk on by But you’ll come back running Can’t quite say goodbye But you’ll learn Well what do you do When the drugs no longer When the drugs no longer When the drugs no longer work?

A Drone 03:57
A Drone Standing in the pouring rain Lifting up my dress again I see you sneaking peaks From behind that limousine What the heck went on before? I don’t know but someone Opened up a door and let me in To this strange place What was that just there I was feeling an emotion?! Keep it up Halliburton said I was nowhere near the ocean! Keep it up Keep it up Keep it up Keep it up A secretary found a crate Of trilateral commission paperweights From 1978 As gifts they’re great Hey man you looking at me?! One and one and one makes three At least it did When triangles were triangles What was that just there I was feeling an emotion?! Keep it up Valerie Harper said I was nowhere near the ocean Keep it up Keep it up Keep it up Keep it up Who can turn the World on with her Smile? Who can take a Nothing day and Suddenly make it all seem Worthwhile? Someone went and dropped A Drone On a village full of faithful Hovered around a sitcom show From forty years ago

Mark Lesseraux New York

Mark’s mother is Irish Catholic. His father was a Russian Jew. In the 2nd grade, Mark veered “off course”… secretly. It is not clear how the "thread" was lost, but it had to do with a botched reading assignment; a chapter in a blue and yellow book left unread. Later, there were 2 nervous system glitches and at least 2 ecstatic dot connecting sessions. Finally, a Need… to sing. ... more
