sseeddss 01:35
i scattered my seeds but this one stays with me as i'm standing here, my seeds in the air this one goes nowhere, it just stays here so i leave, i sit and breathe, and let that seed stay with me
the void 03:56
all i ever do is try to fill the void but it ain't true no it ain't true it ain't true that i can fill the void it's never full i just sit here staring in to find the beginning in my mind when we were born we saw through the void and we found hands, human hands hands that lifted us and carried us to a warm embrace why do i think i can find that again? it's impossible, still i go on searching i guess it's a search that'll never end until i pass through the void again
walkwithme 03:01
i can't give you everything you want or need but if you'd come outside and walk with me i'd show you everything and everything you see i'll give you all of it, everything for free the trees and all their leaves and the way it feels in the breeze with the sun on your neck climbing up a hill i want you to understand the way it feels to stare into the river or stand out in a field i don't want nothin baby, nothin in return all i want is what you got that i needa learn and i'll teach you too to walk with me out in the sun under the trees in the breeze that's all i want from you whadda you want from me? all i wanna do is give you the sun the trees and breeze that's all i want from you what the hell do you want from me? i suspect you want somethin my pockets can't give so i'll slip on by and let you live but have fun baby on those couches in those homes i'm sure i'll think of you often as i roam and i'll wonder how you feel as i'm breathing the breeze out in the sun climbin up a hill
as you weep 02:17
i'm stealing energy there's something inside of me that makes me suck energy i stand by your side while you sit and cry and as you weep i suck your energy i'm always in the air i leave the room but i'm still there i can't be seen as i'm sucking
she used to say she was crazy all the time i used to sit alone at home crying with an old mans words in my hands about all that life demands and how we find it hard to look in our own backyard there's always something out front to do to keep your mind off of you
'not for a little while' originally written and performed by roky erickson and owned by him and you and all of us
my mother is an intelligent woman she's so smart it breaks my heart
my mother is an intelligent woman she's so smart it breaks my heart
let it rest 03:28
i can't let it rest but i have to let it rest all these thoughts thatre in my head why won't i let em stop? what is it that i want? why won't i let it rest? i only see what's in my eyes and i only know what's in my mind and i only speak in words can't say what i ain't heard there's a feeling i get there'll never be words for it so i toss what i find out of my mind
i want out 02:28
i remember their stories of the earth and sun made me wonder what i'd done to deserve this place where everything's alive how did i get here where everything's alive? i'm lucky i'm alive between the dirt and the sky it took so many lives to get to mine i can't believe none of them got sick of living everyone carried on to get to me everyone carried on and now there's me
country lane 03:48
i remember someone who's walking in the shade of a country lane i wondered if where he was going was somewhere i should be so i headed down this path understanding less than i ask to truly understand i'll just keep walking now he sells chickenshit to my father he puts it on the trees so they grow in a few years he'll sell them from the side of that road now that years have passed i understand this path is teaching me to just be
old words speak through my memory i hear what she said to me "there's just this moment. it's all that ever is. if you lose sight of it just stop and breath. and here we are." the words she spoke i often repeat in my head as my fingers are counting my breath when there are 7 i find myself alone here in this moment it's all i've ever known this moment is all i've ever known and here we are
