Track Name: BAND
Splash
Splash
Splash
In the water
A whale,
I'm a washer
A bash,
for the bashful guy.

A blunt
and a bloodbath
Blush,
blowing bubbles
Sleep
in a sleepy sigh

I love you band, I hear you move
you're millions lazy on the groove
you're million bugles to allure,
a turtle shell and I feel so secure

Cows,
mooing in the haze
A whirlwind,
after them graze
Tweet
tweet,
nightingale and gay

I love you band, I hear you move
you're millions lazy on the groove
you're million bugles to allure,
a turtle shell and I feel so secure
You're clang of axes, words of love
these shiny moon tears from above
I'm part of you, you're part of me
you let me give the best of me
Track Name: GORILLAS AND STRIPTEASERS
Tell me why you like him

I like him ‘cos I like men with moustaches
and for his mind, gorillas and stripteasers.
What I don’t like, it’s how he called his label;
but he owns one, what about you sucker?

I saved a coin, let’s have a go,
on the carousel of his brain.
A Joe Lansdale story, pulp videos
and tons of guitars.

Please hold me tight, bitch,
I’m riding the rollercoaster in his brain.

Track Name: THE POPLOVER
THE POPLOVER



I've seen Jeff Buckley with a pink t-shirt
And I've seen Mark Linkous, now they're both dead
I went to Florence to see Grant Hart
I've seen The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I've seen The Orange Indie Crowd
I've seen J. Mascis playing very loud
I went to Pitchfork, I played my part
I've seen The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I've seen Martin Stephenson and The Daintees
I've seen The Velvet and The Police
got in the crowd, was not too smart
I've seen The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I've seen J L Pierce, in a small club
it was wild and crazy, lots of fun
for a 1000 lira selling beer apart
I've seen The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

Well, I've seen Wilco, and Grizzly Bear
I've seen PG, inside a sphere
I've seen Beck twice, and Billy Bragg
I've seen The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I've seen Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
I saw the man fallin' on his knees
The Primal Scream before Weatherall
I've seen The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

and I went to Rome, 1994,
to see Nirvana but I got bored,
I was tired and yawning, right from the start
I've seen The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I've seen Will Oldham wearing strange shoes
I've seen Dream Syndicate, I've seen Blur
and I saw Opal and Arab Strap
I've seen The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I've seen Sufjan, and The Go-Betweens
and Motorpsycho, The Flaming Lips,
Yo la Tengo and GBV
and I see you, and you see me

Track Name: SHOE
SHOE

When I woke up this morning
I got to writing a song for you
I felt soulful and inspired
as David Berman and The Silver Jews

You sleepy slip in the kitchen room
You look at me and you ask me:
"What's new?"

We had our breakfast, our coffee
an heavy silence and the tv news
I just mumbled a few words
about this song I wrote that I called shoe

a shoe, at the foot of the bed...
