Track Name: Of Avenues
The sounds of nature will have their turn
to be my guests comin' through my ears doors

The doors of perception lead to many rooms
and most of them have a splendid view

An outside perspective of avenues
Enter to consider the top view of you

How do I look to bigger things?
Probably a scrambling insect without wings!
Track Name: Coastal
Listening to the waves
of other people's lives
Blows out of crappy stereo
Sounds like a good ol' time

Observing the details
but from a social distance
They are different than mine
but it looks like happiness

Looking within me
I see bullet holes in a bag
Weak but willing not to bottom out

Listening to the waves
of my new beach life
But still sometimes life
is a coastal region with sand
Track Name: Indeed The Moon
Oh, you like when I smile
Me, I like when you're high

In sugar, I'll smile to make you high
Stay high and keep my smile

Is it foolishness or bliss?

Both, who cares if you can fly
No one cares if I do shine

Indeed, the Moon is you and I

Indeed, the Moon is you and me
Track Name: Neighbourhood Bars
Walked in silence
Ears still ringing
Couldn't tell if I was flying or swimming

Looked above and counted the stars
Laughter poured from neighbourhood bars

The weather bit me and it's kind of funny
That I can't drink cause I ain't got no money

Looked ahead and saw a bar
Laughter sprinkled from the stars

The weather bites and it's not funny
Gotta keep walking I ain't got no money
