Track Name: Breaking Through
Breaking Through

Derderderder..........
Dardardardar..........

Not breaking up,
Not breaking down,
Not breaking out
But breaking through.

Not breaking away,
Not breaking back,
Not breaking in
But breaking through.

Not breaking a sweat,
Not breaking a vow,
Not breaking a heart
But breaking through.

Not breaking the surface,
Not breaking a circuit,
Not breaking into a run
But breaking through.

Break! Break! Break!

Not breaking up,
Not breaking down,
Not breaking in
But breaking through.

Not breaking away,
Not breaking back,
Not breaking out
But breaking through.

Not breaking a heart,
Not breaking a vow,
Not breaking a sweat
But breaking through.

Not breaking the surface,
Not breaking a circuit,
Not breaking into a run
But breaking through.

Break! Break! Break!

Track Name: You Could So Easily
You Could So Easily

You could so easily educate me.
You’re so different in your attitude.
It’s not just the way you stand.
It’s the way you make me feel
Like a bullish man
In a lighting shop,
So close to enlightenment
Whenever you are near.
You could take me in your arms
And stop me dreaming.
I would suddenly be wise
For being true
To my feeling.
Track Name: Crackle Of Decision
The Crackle Of Decision

The crackle of decision,
The smell of burnt wire,
Spicy melting plastic,
Thin glass breaking,

It’s not on and off.
It’s not a switch.
It’s not a hesitation.

It’s not a huge field of no
With one rock of yes
To crack a ploughshare on.
It’s not a seesaw.

It’s an ocean of yes
With an iceberg of no
To wreck my ship on.

It’s an ocean of yes
With an iceberg of no
To wreck my ship on.

Sometimes you arrive
Straight in the middle
Of someone else’s dream
And it’s a case of
hold your breath
And it’s a case of
hold your breath
In the unlikely event
The dream is good,
Good for you.

So far as i know
Far as I know so
As I know so far
I know so far as
Know so far as I
So far as I know.

Holy fool
Fly in a web
You girl amongst drunken stupid men
You bee in a flower
Track Name: Noun
Noun

There’s not a lot in a word
Some bacteria, moisture
And carbon dioxide.
The same carbon dioxide
That puts the world to sleep.

A noun, a noun, a noun

Is torn off in a thought storm
And it doesn’t matter
How many adjectives you add,
The weightless shred
Will never be more than noise
Flapping in the space
Between a mouth and an ear.

I would have to speak
As I breathed in, if I was to name you
And anyway it would still be a lie
Like looking into your grey grape eyes
Across a laden table
And claiming that a word from you
Is all I need to survive.

There’s not a lot in a word
Some bacteria, moisture
And carbon dioxide.
The same carbon dioxide
That puts the world to sleep.
Track Name: Spit Wine
SPIT WINE

Ladies and Gentleman,
Women and Men,
Girls and Boys,
Conscientious objectors,
Semi-conscious agreers,
Any sentient being
from any intersection
of dimensions
that might be present.

Here we are,
crushing grapes
in the mouth
making spit wine.

Here we are,
Refusing to be
economical.
Here we are,
Extravagant
With our truths,

On the South Side
Where the tarmac
And the dust
Make for excellent
growing.

Here we are
Crushing grapes in the mouth
Storytelling
picking from a wave front of facts
towering above the rip tide
towering to the point
where the facts are about to break
Where it’s all about to break,

like a sky full of rain,
like a sky full of rain.

Here we are,
crushing grapes
in the mouth
making spit
Wine.
Spit wine.
Spit wine.
Track Name: Life Support System
LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEM

Human Being!
Human Being!
How is your life support system?

Is it the trees
losing their leaves
or is it your lungs
losing their alveoli?

Is it acid flux
or is it acid rain?
Have you got a temperature
or is it the planet?
Have you got a skin disease
or is it poisoned topsoil?

Life Support Systems,
LEDs,
Notices and signs,
Burglar alarms,
Signals everywhere
But no meaning,
No being,
No waggle dance
to tell you
where is the nectar.

Where is the nectar?

Life support system.
Life support system.
