Lizards. The favorite snack of my cat. I’m tempted to upload a video of him eating all but the tiny toxic bit, what I make up must be a lizard large intestine. It’s anything but large – these lizards aren’t dinosaurs, they’re the garden variety. 6, 8 inches max.

The January weather has come back around to the way I love it so in San Diego. Our equivalent to winter is wetness and that seems to have all dried up. Warmth becomes us and the lizards emerge to the concrete surfaces, lifting their heads high, gazing directly into the blinding glow of their sun God.

The lizard scene on my patio would probably look like the buffet variety at The Souplantation to my cat, but he is no where to be found. The lizards are smug if not smiling.

In early December, my feline friend who goes by the single syllable name of Holmes (which I read later is not a wise choice in naming a pet - Grouping two syllables like Rover or Peanut is easier for an animal to distinguish when they are called or spoken to, especially between other commands we...

A sign posted on a door for hotel staff had been defaced and now read, "Hot__ Associates Only." This kind of human behavior and fondling of letters inspires me. Upon seeing it, I am moved to fetch me lady and me camera and have her pose as if she's entering the special room. Whatever might go on in a room reserved for hot associates only, I hope there's lots of oil and a communal lathering.

By the time I get to my room to get the camera I've completely forgotten about the task. I could blame it on where my mind had wandered - but this always happens. I walk into a room and forget what I went in there for. Maybe I'm so over the past and so in the moment that freshness finds me around every corner. Or it's a classic case of short term memory loss brought on by too many hours gazing directly into the sun or it's equally impressive reflection in the water. What was I writing about?

_____________________

Tonight I host Mr. Toca Rivera for dinner and a rehearsal of new songs. It’s hard to believe he and I have been together for more than 10 years now. Looking back at the last decade I've so much to be thankful for, his friendship included. Rather than making this blog a stroll down memory lane, I’ll stay present and list a decade’s worth of Gratitude (what I can remember of it anyway) in 90 seconds. Go.

I am grateful for:

regularity
a community of dreamers
java joe
the power of possibility and all my teachers
my totally rad parents
raw food
malleable bodies
malleable reality
the physics of surf
the logic of maybe
the mu phenomenon
my best friend and fiancé

I’m a fan of positive articulation. To me, this is a step beyond positive thinking. It’s putting your positive thoughts into action – into doing – into words.

Every New Year’s I resolve to do something new/different with my life. Something grand. Something transformative. Sometimes it’s to continue doing something I love, but often it’s a new invention of some kind. Last year, the main theme was activism and in 2010 I certainly got my feet wet, literally by tromping thru the Lake Volta Region in Ghana, learning about the work of Free The Slaves – AND parading thru New Orleans promoting a green future after learning about the oil spill disaster and cover-up in the Gulf.

This year, I resolve to turn New into Now. "New” often refers to a kind or quality about something, AND tends to refer to a someday, either past or future. Now, however, always means NOW. In this tradition, I get to celebrate early and say,

___________________________

Second to words, I’m a numbers guy. I like significant dates, digits, and planetary transits. I’ve been drawn to the number 1134 since I discovered while dangling upside-down with a calculator that it read, HELL. Seeing 1134 on the clock, odometer, or as the total on a receipt always makes me feel, if sadistically, like I’m in the right place at the right time. The same with 11:11. I always make a wish. Of course, whether or not it works is all just a story I made up, but it shifts my attention back to that of synchronicity and universal harmony and I’m okay with that. I try not to be too superstitious, and find these brain games are much more fun than fear.

I was born on June 23rd. My Best friend Stevie was July 23rd. We both got tattoos of the number 23 on his birthday at the Chelsea Hotel, which happens to be on 23rd Street. 23 has always been a number I play in Vegas.

This is the most extraordinary recording I own. Whenever I play just the audio for people, the common reaction to the round of applause at the end is one that accompanies awe. “THAT was LIVE?!”

Check This Out. It's 13 minutes short and you may not understand a word... Offer yourself the time. Give yourself permission to be moved by something new. This is your journey after all, and it was you who stumbled upon this music. The universe obviously wants you to hear this.

Qawwali Flamenco is a meeting between the Pakistani Sufi tradition of Qawwali and Spanish Flamenco. Though the genres may appear quite different, they are actually very similar in that the music invites improvisational story telling, crying and wailing about love lost and found, from subjects spanning from romance to god devotion.

3542 miles so far and not once have I had to buy water. I know everyone who reads this blog uses a reusable water bottle – and I thank you for hooking up your friends and family this holiday season.

Every time I refueled I would carry my water bottle and hot mug into the gas station and get clean cold water from the soda fountain (usually a little button under the lemonade) and hot water from the coffee machine. (Starbucks also gives free hot and cold filtered water.) Carrying my own tea also made my travels super enjoyable, inexpensive, and healthy.

The trouble with a water bottle is that I end up drinking a lot more water which means I have to pee more often, which sucks when you’re in the middle of nowhere or stuck in traffic.

The worst need-to-pee experience I ever had occurred 10 years ago while driving from San Diego to Los Angeles to deliver some birds to a friend. I was familiar enough with these birds to be entrusted with them AND was given permission to let them fly freely around the car during the drive. They loved the...

A photo I took of a farm that produces maple syrup…
Published by Heather, SuperForester

in Superforest journal
_____________________________

Hello SuperForest!

I received this little story in my email inbox recently, and upon reading it, I immediately thought of SuperForest. We have talked about redefining wealth and success before, but this is a simple story that illustrates the common thread of abundance and gratitude that often shows up in our SuperForest universe.

Let’s share this story with our loved ones, especially during this holiday season, as it is important to remind ourselves to be grateful for what we have, and look at wealth in a different way:

One day the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

Returning from their trip, the father asked his son: “How was the trip?” “It was great, Dad.” “Did you see how poor people live?” the father asked. “Oh yeah” said the son. “So tell me, what did you learn from...

Acidophilus should be spelled Assidophilus.

In addition to falling in love with myself and allowing the new album to awaken and unfold organically, this well driven journey has also inspired a quest for America’s Best Veggie Burger and the Perfect Cup of Hot Chocolate.

Santa Fe is thought to be a vortex; a geographical location so energetic it naturally attracts intuits, nudists, and naturalists and forces the visitor and resident alike to
find healing thru harmony. It is said to be quite impossible to remain in this energy unless “equilibrium is found by the individual.”(btw I'm standing on one leg as I write this.)

Vortexes are generally unseen yet viewed as swirling tornadoes of light. In Santa Fe, the vortex that lured me in was a tornado of beauty – lush green and adobe brown under a landscape of rich sky blue and red chili spice. Not only am I going home with a length of chili to adorn my home, I’m also departing with a satisfied stomach of Pasqual’s Mexican Hot Chocolate and remnants of Veggie Burger smathered across my taste buds,...

"It's like a sauna in here."
Jason's blog posted on
December 7th, 2010

Things I DON'T want for Christmas:

- Pants that are too small

- Clock Radio

- Giant Earthworm

- Twins

- Herpes

- Portable Sauna, even though it looks really clever.

Whenever I'm in a Sauna, I like to say, "It's like a sauna in here." even when I'm by myself.


I once shared a Sauna with Ingrid Michaelson when we were on tour together in Sweden. The Swedish love Saunas. I don’t recall the Sauna ever getting hot and we ended up just sitting there in the wooden box talking about how boring it was.

Tonight I had a Sauna all to myself during a spontaneous spa visit. I decided to reward my body after sitting behind the wheel for 2000 miles. The privacy of the solo-sauna gave me an opportunity to sing and chant until I got dry mouth and shortness of breath. Apparently you lose a pint of water for every 20 minutes you spend in the heat. My masseur told me that. She was a wealth of knowledge and knew her way around the body. This made it easy for her to kick my ass and call it therapy. It was...

All walking around in the same state of mind?
Jason’s blog posted on
December 4th, 2010
on 8:14 PM

In Kansas, they love their unborn babies. A lot. From KC to the CO state line, Jesus has "highered" billboards advocating the keeping of one’s baby. I assume there is an argument or epidemic of dumpster babies in Kansas if there is a need for so many billboards.

I kept a keen watch of the billboards hoping to catch the World’s Largest Ball of Twine. Apparently the Twine town has the World’s Smallest Advertising because I totally missed it. Dang!

Which came first, plain the noun or plain the adjective? Such queries arrive driving through the plain plains of these United States.

If you think of the word state, as in way of being, how cool would it be if we chose to live in united states? – A land that breathes in and out at precisely the same moments, sharing emotions, moon cycles, and self-appreciation. Were we all walking around in the same state of mind, we’d be a country whose cause is compassion thanks to our condition. Our senses would force us into alignment with everyone else. Maybe this is how huge schools of fish or flocks of birds make tight...

Traffic came to a turtle’s pace when I entered into St Louis. I wondered if me adding one more car to the rush hour mix was throwing the city off a little. Why is it called rush hour when it’s generally slow?

I’m also curious as to how much a population varies from day to day – what with people coming and going, driving and flying, birthing and dying, etc. Regardless, if the hospitable citizens of St Louis are hoping to count my head tomorrow, I’ll be gone.

I love being on the road. For the past 7 years I’ve been in the back of the bus (which usually travels by night) unable to enjoy at length the boring landscapes of America. Of course, boring is a perspective – just an interpretation based on how entertained I am behind the wheel. A flat and barren highway doesn’t bother me so long as the music on the radio is equally dull.

I have a loose hatred for the long haul trucker who bullys the road, cramping my lane and overdrawing speed limits. It’s not enough for me to take a license number or flip anyone the bird, but still I “sheesh” when run up...

Do Thanksgiving every day
Jason’s blog posted
on December 1st, 2010
at 10:38 a.m.

6 hours from Nashville, 33 ½ years since birth. Final destination: California, year 2977. I’m not attached to being a thousand years old but if I get anywhere close, I’ll buy every reader of this blog a chai latte with steamed eggnog. In barista jargon that’s known as a “Cheg” and it only comes out on special occasions.

The weeks spanning from Thanksgiving to New Year’s are typically my most gluttonous. Maybe this is why Jesus gets so popular around this time of year – what with all the people blessing their piles of food, praying for those who don’t have any, or asking forgiveness for having eaten too much.

This season I’m present to how much I’ve been provided-for since birth. For 33 Thanksgivings I’ve yet to run out of stuffing. And it looks as though my baby niece is set up for a similar life of sweet potato wealth. I’m grateful for my hard working Mom and Dad and the families I have on both sides who pour their love into dinners, voicemails, card games and family reunions.

Doing inversions in yoga, namely down-dog, the charm on my necklace dances with gravity, falling to rest perfectly over my lips. I find it ironic and terribly cute because the amulet reads “Protect Her Voice.” I kiss it lightly without drawing attention to myself, smiling into its smooth, cold surface knowing my breath is fogging it up a little.

I started wearing the Protection Amulet by Leah In Leaucadia just before my girlfriend went in for surgery on her vocal chords, prompting a week of silence for her, as well as months of therapy to restore her voice to the pristine rasp I’ve always known her to have. As someone who relies on vocal chords for both love and livelihood, I was nervous about the whole procedure. Needless to say she handled it the way she handles all else – like a bad-ass. Still, I credit the amulet for keeping me calm.

Leah’s amulets will protect whatever or whomever you wish to protect. My previous necklace said, “Protect Our Voice” referring to both my lady and I, and you, and your friends, and their...

One time I threw-up Honey-Nut Cheerios while reclined in the dentist’s chair. I assume I was given too much Nitrous oxide after eating apparently too many “parts of a balanced breakfast.” Surprisingly, the cheery Oh’s regurgitated as if I hadn’t ever chewed them up. They came forth from my dizzy carcass onto my t-shirt spelling out “Ooooh” like alphabet soup. Without missing a beat, the hygienist came in and said, “Mmm, Smells like Honey & Nuts.” True story. I bet they saved the footage on the surveillance camera. (I would have if I worked there.)

Another time I puked C3PO Cereal on the side of the road on the way to school. They too were still completely formed in their random figure-8 pattern that I never associated with C3PO. I have no moral to this story. Like Honey-Nut Cheerios, it just came up.

If you were a cereal, what would be your ingredients?

I think mine would be little mini-fish tacos with spicy guacamole bites. Or falafel with sweet pickles, Mmm! Can you please pass the breast milk?

EVERYDAY I EAT THIS ------>

And I get it here: link

When people ask me about it, I take a deep breath because talking about it leads to a rant on how much I think it’s awesome. When I’m in a hurry I simply say, “I dunno what it is, but it’s supposed to make my penis grow 2 inches in just 4 weeks.”

In all seriousness, this stuff will make you live to be a thousand.

I promise you’ll comment on this blog when you’re 900 (wishing you were dead) asking, “What was in that sh*t?”

Vitamineral Green. Best if stirred with coconut water or sweetened with Stevia if you’re taking it plain like a man.

I especially find it helpful in England. Much of the food I eat lacks the color green. I was told by many a health practitioner I should eat all the colors of the rainbow at every day. This has been the easiest way to understanding a healthy diet.

About a year ago I got the words ”Be Love” tattooed on my arm. The idea that I could be ”Love Itself”as in ‘not wait for it to show up’ was a revolutionary concept I first discovered at Café Gratitude in San Francisco.(Yes, I know it's been the basis of many religions, but I'm a late bloomer. Everyone's awakening looks different.)

This month, Café Gratitude releases it’s highly anticipated book, Kindred Spirit: Fulfilling Love's Promise (link). This take-out version of the café’s popular relationship workshop is all about ‘Being Love’ and what that entails. Whether or not you share your life with a partner, every conversation and interaction in life is within Relationship. The book is brilliant and like the food at Cafe Gratitude, easy to digest.

10 STEPS TO AN ECO-CONSCIOUS SHOWER
_____________________________________

10. Avoid using products in plastic containers

I know it’s hard to avoid plastic in our everyday lives but you can search for alternatives. If you’re using body wash that is packaged in plastic try switching to bar soap. Usually soap is packaged in a cardboard box that can biodegrade or be recycled.

9. Switch to plant-based ingredients

Whether it’s your shampoo, bar of soap of even bathroom cleaning products, this will be healthier for you and your family and you’ll be reducing your impact on the planet as well. The many chemicals found in our everyday household products have a major effect on our water and our health, so switching to a plant-based, biodegradable product will really help.

8. DIY!

If you’re crafty, try creating our own soap, shampoo, etc. This way you will know exactly what’s in your product and it usually is more cost effective. There are many great resources online, such as YouTube, and soap making...

...Just ignore’em and they’ll go away.

I haven’t brushed mine yet today. It’s now 1am. Oops. Does that imply that I was reeeeally busy or waaaaay too lazy? ...Who cares.

For every action there’s a reaction. And also, for every action there’s an equal and opposite criticism.

This year I found both the time and resources to try things outside of my comfort zone - Like traveling to Louisiana to witness the devastation and learn ways I could help take better care of our environment. Not before that trip did I connect voting with being green. It was a powerful epiphany. Some applauded my choice to travel there. Others criticized it.

Regardless of who says what – I don’t take it personally. I thank those people for responding at all. Criticism proves they listened (to some degree). I can recall a time when the demographic my age were considered slackers. I don’t see a trace of that anymore. I only sense do-gooders everywhere. In fact, it’s hard to keep up with all the progress!...

You can only polish a turd for so long before it starts to fall apart. So it goes with album making. Thriller was made in just 8 weeks while Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, though rehearsed and performed live before it was ever recorded, was made in just 2 sessions. I am not currently working on Chinese Democracy, but I have been sculpting this turd for almost a year now and it’s doesn’t even remotely resemble a Snickers Bar. My point: It’s still not ready for consumption.

Of course, it wouldn’t hurt to stop calling it a turd. After all, I’m hoping you’ll like it in the end. To be honest, throughout this whole process I never once referred to my work as shit or anything that resembles fecal matter. It just came to me to turn that phrase when I sat down to write this drivel. I think I’m just hungry for chocolate. This veganism and living on falafels while in studio is really making me lofty. I apologize if I poo-poo’ed the magic.

Dr. Graham Tattersall*
239 pages
2010

A Guide to Answering the Unanswerable, Making Sense of the Nonsensical, and Solving the Unsolvable

How big is your vocabulary?
How heavy is your house?
Do the dead outnumber the living?
What are the best words to use
in a personal ad?

We humans are a curious species, prone to think, ruminate, reflect, cogitate, mull over, and philosophize. We long to explain away the world around us, to answer all those seeming unanswerables. Why are we here? Is there a God? Is there life after death? And, above all, how many houseflies does it take to pull a car?

A confirmed and superior geek, Dr. Graham Tattersall has rescued math from the prison of the classroom and put it to use in novel and unexpected ways to explain some oft-pondered mysteries of the world. Geekspeak is an essential tool that will help you exercise your brain and solve the unsolvable, make you sound intelligent so you can impress your friends, and enable you to better understand the fascinating world in which we live in ways never possible before.

(Analysis computed on July 28, 2010 at 6:18 a.m. Montreal (Canada) Time)

Your expression number - the 4 - summarizes your first and your last name and accounts for your even-tempered and sober appearance as well as for your profound wish to realize and build things securely. You seek security and you have this undeniable sense of exertion and perseverance. Your number is best symbolized by Saturn and the earth element (this is not the only paradox in your personality!) You are resistant, both physically and mentally. And this particular form of resistance is best symbolized by the keystone. You are orderly and methodical and you can keep focused for ages. The thing you have to watch particularly is your natural disposition to look for daily grin and to be staid...

In short: Avoid conservatism and narrow-mindedness for these are the worst traps you could walk into and you will be fulfilled!

Your first name - Jason Thomas - portrayed by number 9 reveals your great sensitivity and humanism. Thanks to your connectedness to the world combined with your inclination to idealism, you are a selfless person able to move the mountains for others....

"A Beautiful Mess"

You've got the best of both worlds
You're the kind of girl who can take down a man,
And lift him back up again
You are strong but you're needy,
Humble but you're greedy
And based on your body language,
And shoddy cursive I've been reading
Your style is quite selective,
though your mind is rather reckless
Well I guess it just suggests
that this is just what happiness is

Hey, what a beautiful mess this is
It's like picking up trash in dresses

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write
Kind of turn themselves into knives
And don't mind my nerve you could call it fiction
But I like being submerged in your contradictions dear
'Cause here we are, here we are

Although you were biased I love your advice
Your comebacks they're quick
And probably have to do with your insecurities
There's no shame in being crazy,

"If It Kills Me"

Hello, tell me you know
Yeah, you figured me out
Something gave it away
It would be such a beautiful moment
To see the look on your face
To know that I know that you know now

And baby that's a case of my wishful thinking
You know nothing
Well you and I
Why, we go carrying on for hours on end
We get along much better
Than you and your boyfriend

[Chorus:]
Well all I really wanna do is love you
A kind much closer than friends use
But I still can't say it after all we've been through
And all I really want from you is to feel me
As the feeling inside keeps building
And I will find a way to you if it kills me
If it kills me

How long, can I go on like this,
Wishing to kiss you,
Before I rightly explode?
This double life I lead isn't healthy for me
In fact it makes me nervous

"The Dynamo Of Volition"

I've got the dynamo of volition
With po-pole position
Automatic transmission with lo-ow emissions
I'm a brand new addition to the old edition
With the love unconditional.

I'm a drama abolitionist
Damn no opposition to my proposition
Half of a man, half magician
Half a politician holding the mic
Like ammunition
And my vision is as simple as light.

Ain't no reason we should be in a fight
No demolition
Get to vote, get to say what you like
Procreation
Compositions already written by themselves
Heck is for the people not believin' in gosh

Good Job
Get 'em up way high
Gimme gimme that high five
Good time
Get 'em way down low
Gimme gimme that low dough
Good God
Bring 'em back again
Gimme gimme that high ten
You're the best definition of good intentions.

"Only Human"

A squirrel in the tree is he watching me
Does he give a damn?
Does he care who I am?
I'm just a man, is that all I am
Are my manners misinterpreted words or only human?
I'm human

Murderous crow, hey what you know
What you reading about, what you hold in your toes
Is that a twig, are you a dove of peace
A black dove undercover, with another puzzle piece
Are you a riddle to solve all along?
Or am I over thinking thoughts of human after all

Only human
Made of flesh, made of sand, made of human
The planet's talking about a revolution
The natural laws ain't got no constitution
They've got a right to live their own life
But we keep paving over paradise

'Cause we're only human
Yes we are, only human
If it's our only excuse do you think we'll keep on being only human
Yes we are, yes we are
Only human, only human, only human

"Coyotes"

Sipping coffee at a quarter to two
I wake up and i'm dallin and my minds running to you
No wonder i'm a one woman man
She keeps me hot in a jar on the nightstand
I should tell her that she couldn't be more
Opposite then a foot in a door,
Theres no one else I would rather go out with, thats hell when I see them standing there
Me and my mouth we don't mean to be rushing
We talk about deep freely cuz we crushing
I want to shake both sides of the brush ya
Theatrically I say we rock it

And when the coyotes they sing at the park
Till the city lights starts falling
Ride them rodes they winding down till the flame hits the ground
Every motion is closer to touching the coyotes sing when they call in the middle of it.

Coming back for more,
You know I'm coming for you
You know we should be should be together
While we rock, we won't put a stop

"Details In The Fabric"
(feat. James Morrison)

Calm down
Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed instead
Of running around
And pulling all your threads saying
Breaking yourself up

If it's a broken part, replace it
But, if it's a broken arm then brace it
If it's a broken heart then face it

And hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your own name
And go your own way

And everything will be fine
Everything will be fine
Mmmhmm

Hang on
Help is on the way
Stay strong
I'm doing everything

Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way
Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

And everything, everything will be fine
Everything

Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic

"Live High"

I try to picture a girl
Through a looking glass
See her as a carbon atom
See her eyes and stare back at them
See that girl
As her own new world
Though a home is on the surface, she is still a universe

Glory God, oh God is peeking through the blinds
Are we all here standing naked
Taking guesses at the actual date and time
Oh my, justifying reasons why
Is an absolutely insane resolution to live by

Live high
Live mighty
Live righteously
Taking it easy
Live high, live mighty
Live righteously

Try to picture the man
To always have an open hand
See him as a giving tree
See him as matter
Matter fact he's not a beast
No not the devil either
Always a good deed doer
And it's laughter that we're making after all

The call of the wild is still an ordination why

"Butterfly"

I'm taking a moment just imaginin' that I'm dancin' with you
I'm your pole and all you're wearing is your shoes
You got soul, you know what to do to turn me on until I write a song about you
And you have your own engaging style
And you've got the knack to vivify
And you make my slacks a little tight, you may unfasten them if you like
That's if you crash and spend the night

But you don't fold, you don't fade
You've got everything you need, especially me
Sister you've got it all
You make the call to make my day
In your message say my name
Your talk is all the talk, sister you've got it all

Curl your upper lip up and let me look around
Ride your tongue along your bottom lip and bite down
And bend your back and ask those hips if I can touch
Because they're the perfect jumping off point of getting closer to your

Butterfly

Do you hear me,
I'm talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I'm trying
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we're in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed

Well you've done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you're so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks
and now I'm trying to get back
Before the cool done run out
I'll be giving it my bestest
Nothing's going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon its again my turn to win some or learn some

I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I'm yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you're free
Look into your heart and you'll find love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing, were just one big family
It's our God-forsaken right to be loved love loved love love

So I won't hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I'm sure
There's no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I'm yours

Wake up everyone
How can you sleep at a time like this
Unless the dreamer is the real you
Listen to your voice
The one that tells you to taste past the tip of your tongue
Leap and the net will appear

I don't wanna wake before
The dream is over
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes i... I'll own it
I'm gonna make it mine
Yes I'll make it all mine

I keep my life on a heavy rotation
Requesting that it's lifting you up
Up up and away
And over to a table at the Gratitude Café

And I am finally there
And all the angels they'll be singing
Ah la la la ah la la la I la la la la love you

I don't wanna break before

Well you're magic he said
But don't let it all go to your head
Well I bet if you all had it all figured out
Then you'd never get out of bed
No doubt
All the thing's that I've read what he wrote me
Is now sounding like the man I was hoping
To be
Keep on keeping it real
Cause it keeps getting easier indeed
He's the reason that I'm laughing
Even if there's no one else
He said, you've got to love yourself

You say, you shouldn't mumble when you speak
But keep your tongue up in your cheek
And if you stumble on to
You better remember that it's humble that you seek
You got all the skill you need,
Individuality
You got something
Call it gumption
Call it anything you want
Because when you play the fool now
You're only fooling everyone else
You're learning to love yourself

Yes you are

Let's throw out the hotel comforter and hang the 'do not disturb'
Sign me up for the storm
I'll wear my suit for the shower
Cause I'll have you to keep me warm in the coldest hour

And when the darkness falls under your hair, there I'll be
And crazy is the forecast all week

Well every kiss, every hug is so light on that touch, delicate like a snowflake
Well I can taste, I can taste, I can taste, I can taste you all over my face
And everyone might find it foolish to not be counting on the sun
But your mouth is my umbrella now
Because I'm holding your tongue

And when the darkness falls under your hair, there I'll be
And crazy is the forecast all week

Like cats and dogs we'll be flying

"Please Don't Tell Her"

I hear she's kicking ass across the board and rock two hundred thousand higher scorer
Just in time to save the world of being taken over
She's a warrior
I couldn't play again because the game it never end it never even landed on the can
And never let me in to spend my quarter
There's no love for me no more

Say it isn't so
How she easily come, and she easy go
Please don't tell her that I've been meaning to miss her
Because I don't

She was the girl with the broadest shoulders
But she would die before I crawled over them
She is taller than I am
She knew I wouldn't mind the view there
Or the altitude with a mouth full of air
She let me down the doubt came out until the now became later

Say that it isn't so
How she easily come, how she easy go
Please don't tell her that
'Cause she don't really need to know

What's the worst thing that could happen?
We could change our minds.
That seems to be the hottest topic at this time.
We are sitting around in the meditation, dragging, chasing,
Wonderin?whose holdin?whose got the will to draw the line.

I know you've got something burning up inside,
It's so unhealthy but so good for me, oh!
Said if I didn't know, and if I didn't know, well if I didn't know that you loved me would you tell me?
Well God only knows our contradiction's to quitting, is a hate to love relationship thing.
A fire under you is so fulfilling,
I fear there's nothing more.

I'm giving, giving you, the choke hold,
My flirting with disaster is mighty loved.
Ugggh you, you're so bold,
My wanting to kiss you still is not enough.
I'm getting over, all the comments.
I'm feeling statements made by people are nonsense.
I'm getting stronger, by the minute.

Mystery the moon
A hole in the sky
A supernatural nightlight
So full but often right
A pair of eyes a closin' one
A chosen child of golden sun
A marble dog that chases cars
To farthest reaches of the beach and far beyond into the swimming sea of stars

A cosmic fish they love to kiss
They're giving birth to constellation
No riffs and oh no reservation
If they should fall you get a wish or dedication
May I suggest you get the best
For nothing less than you and I
Let's take a chance as this romance is rising over before we lose the lighting
Oh bella bella please
Bella you beautiful luna
Oh bella do what you do
Do do do do do

You are an illuminating anchor
Of leagues to infinite number
Crashing waves and breaking thunder
Tiding the ebb and flows of hunger
You're dancing naked there for me

Drinkin' cause you're lookin so good in your starbucks cup

And I'm over the ground that you've been spinning
And I'm up in the air said baby hell yeah

If the plane goes down, damn

Who knew I'd cum so fast.
Well so what if a two pump chump can't last.

But I made it to three, and I foreclose a five minute, fantasy.
On a short-lived flight, making love on economy
No jumping, conclusions,

And forget our restless destination.

Call it mystery or anything

Said well this catastrophic event
It wasn't meant to mean no harm
But to think there's nothing wrong is a problem, oh

Sounding hopeful but it's making me cry

This love is a mystery

That I meant in a minute or less when I called to confess
And make all of my stresses go bye-bye

'cuz if you did you would have called me with your sweet intent
And we could give it a rest
'stead of beating my breast
Making all of the pressure go sky-high

Do you ever wonder what happens to the words that we send
Do they bend, do they break from the flight that they take
And come back together again with a whole new meaning
In a brand new sense, completely unrelated to the one I sent

Did you get my message, oooh oooh ooooh

Got to find another way to live the life of leisure
So I drop my top
Mix and I mingle
Is everybody ready for the single and it goes...

Expending lines and finding more energy for the effort and getting distance from that front porch spotlight
But us we found peace in shadows, long enough to see the monsters rise
Candy's got some space to fill in her daydream living high on yesterday's lies
Talking to me about some 0% interest and, how she got a better deal than the next guy

And the way the lightning shocked us when we were lost and we were looking
Down that long Missouri highway your hair was longer then and now I can remember
Say now I remember oh so well

Oh the roads unencumbered by cats they're burning like wet matches through my miracle mile mind

Dreams that hardly touch our complexions truest faults
If room enough for both my drowsy spirit shall fall

Until all is lost into the beauty of the day
Until all is lost, until all is lost

And it makes me feel like a child
Aspects of life they confuse me
You and your thesis amuse me
Oh, after and afternoon with you
And your rich brown eyes
Your lips and dark hair
Elbows and exposed knees tossing toward the ceiling
After an after, after an after, after an afternoon
After an after, after an afternoon with you

I'm counting my sheep and each one that passes is another dream to ashes
And they all fall down.

What, what a beautiful sight

Sleeping to dream about you
And I'm so tired
Of having to live without you
But I don't mind
Sleeping to dream about you and I'm so tired

I found myself in the riches
Your eyes, your lips, your hair and you were everywhere
I woke up in the ditches, I hit the light and I thought you might be here
But you were nowhere (you were nowhere)
Well You were nowhere

And as I lay me back to sleep
Lord I pray that I can keep

Used to talk together, Go to the park together,
In all of kinds of weather we would share,

And I got some right here, And I'm okay, I'm okay
You're okay, ha ha, we're okay, ha ha ooha I am alright,
I answered alright, I'm doin' fine,but ohh bones again are broken,
The love is not a token of affection, It's not even a real thing,
It's a word, so don't try to buy it out with a ring,
Cuz it's a verb, to love someone, open up and let them in,
Just don't, just don't be afraid, don't be afraid to set them again,
This ain't no heaven, ain't no hell, ain't no in-between,
Cuz there's just too many faces and places in this world,
That I ain't never seen, I'm gonna keep on keeping on on,
I'm gonna reap on being strong, and I got my head on,

And looking to discover any way to play the part inside his darkened cave
Well the meaning of life it starts at the nightlight
Close your eyes and hope to see mine

But I stopped my counting when I saw your face
Erasing memory I feel as though I've never seen a face before
Until I saw your eyes smiling back at me thru my tears
I've been counting all these years
Now suddenly the thousand things I've seen were
Nothing more than dreams of you and me

You and me quietly at a stand still
Fortunately you will kiss me and I'll kiss you back

"No Doubling Back"

I would like to hold your hand
As we're shifted through this twisted abandon
I would like to think that you'd know your way
We have dodged the ropes of rain
Well the cats and dogs well they love to play
On the handsome fella with umbrella
Who once saved you your day
And I will ask you to open my door from your side
From the inside after you drive
Because I wanna stay wet for a little bit longer
That's why
I warm the engine compartment up
While I stand here and think it up
But it's a little too early to bury the worries
Til this wish is my command

And I wonder, wonder which one of us
Is gonna state the obvious
And I wonder if you already know
That I gotta let you go
I know this ain't the way I planned it
I guess I ain't the great romantic
And I'm not doubling back now
No doubling back
Doubling back now

"Not So Usual"

This is the most, unusual story, of the most unusual girl.
She's the paint in the picture, of a most unusual world.
She can crawl out of frame while she's hangin' on the wall.
And she's callin' my name. She's not so usual.

Oh no. She's not so usual. Oh no.

She's mostly a ghost (the way she watches over me).
She complains when I smoke but then would do the same to me.
She's controling my brain activity, (knowing when I go to sleep).
She's gonna catch me when I'm fallin' hard. She's the most unusual.

I know. She's not so usual.
I know she's not so usual.
Oh no. She's not so usual.

She's not so hooked on the drums like I thought that she was.
And never suckin' on the lime, and hardly sipping on the wine.
And despite of her bipolar rollercoastering.
I think I can trust she'll keep me singing differently.
And it's fine cause she's with me now, most all of the time.

"Tonight, Not Again"

The night.
She brushed her hands upon my flushed cheek
Smelled of childhood remnants of a dusty weeping willow
Clouds soothe, Shredded by the calico
Were oh so vast and quick as I was on my own now.

This time like every other time I believe that I never find
Another sweet little girl with sequined sea foam eyes
Ocean lapping voice smile coy as the brightest quiet span of sky
And I'm all alone again tonight not again, not again, not again.

And don't it feel allright. and don't it feel so nice. Lovely.

Still I'm unable to inhale all the riches
As I'm awkward as a wound on my bones
Still I've got cobblestone joints and plate glass points
As I'm all by myself tonight not again not againE

And don't it feel allright. and don't it feel so nice. Lovely.

Well if you should nervously break down
When its time for the shakedown would you take it

"No Stopping Us"

Would it take a bakers dozen to get my point to you?
Would it take a half a pound to roll a joint for you
Would it take some hailing mary's so full of grace to get my sound to you
Will you help me break it down and get on thru

Down to the other side
Its easy of you only try
We don't lie down on the job
Because once we hit the top there's no stopping us

Should I address all my letters to the well to be
Should I say return to sender is just a well be done
Should I better not take it so personall if all the good loving is never received
Baby if it was me well I wouldn't think twice

No not i..
See its easy if you only try
We don't lie down on the job
Because once we hit the top there's no stopping us.

I will drive a thousand miles or I'll meet you at the station
If only you would take a vacation from this thing you have created

"Boy's Gone"

The boy's gone. The boy's gone home.

What will happen to a face in the crowd when it finally gets too crowded.
And will happen to the origins of sound after all the sounds have sounded
Well I hope I never have to see that day but by god I know it's headed our way
So I better be happy now that the boy's going home. The boy's gone home.

And what becomes of a day for those who rage against it
And who will sum op the phrase for all left standing around in it

Well I suppose we'll all make our judgement call
We'll walk it alone, stand up tall, then march to the fall
So we better be happy now that we'll all go home.

Be so happy with the way you are
Be so happy that you made it this far
Go on be happy now. Please be happy now

Because this is something else
this is something else

I tried to live my life and live it so well

"On Love, In Sadness"

Oh love it's a brittle madness, I sing about it in all my sadness
It's not falsified to say that I found god so inevitably well,
It still exists pale and fine. I can't dismiss
And I won't resist and if I die well at least I tried

And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain
And pour over everything we say we trust
It happened again, I listened in thru hallways and thin doors
Where the rivers unwind, rust and in the rain endure.
The rust and the rain are sins
And I'm in like Flynn again

So go on place your order now cause some other time is right around the clock
You can stand in line. it finally begins just around the clock
You can have your pick if your stomach is sick whether you eat or not
And there is just one thing that I almost forgot

And we just lay awake in lust and rust in the rain
And pour over everything we say we trust

"Absolutely Zero"

You. You were a friend. You were a friend of mine I let you spend the night
You see it was my fault. Of course it was mine.
I'm too hard at work. Have you ever heard of anything so absurd ever in your life.
I'm sorry for wasting your time.

See who am I to say this situation isn't great? When it's my job to make the most of it
Of course I didn't know that it would happen to me. Not that easy.

Hey what's that you say? You're not blaming me for anything well that's great
But I don't break that easy. Does it fade away?
So that's why I'm, I'm apologizing now for telling you I thought that we could make it
I just don't get enough to believe that we've both changed.

See who am I to say this situation isn't great? It's my time to make the most of it
Of course I didn't know that it would happen to me. Not that easy.
If all along the fault is up for grabs why can't you have it

"Too Much Food"

You can say that I'm one curly fry in the box of the regular
Messing with the flavor oh the flavor that you savor
Saving me for last but you better not eat me at all
Living in a fast food bag making friends with the ketchup and salt
People say that I'm crazy for not moving on to better things
Instead I'm sitting around trash talking with the onion rings
But it's much too soon to leave this easy life
Pass me the spoon. Pass the analytical knife

Now you're about to get cut up or get cut down
It's all about the wordplay all about the sound in the tone of my voice
You gotta let me make my choice alone before my food gets cold
Better shut up or get shot down. It s all about the know how all just a matter of taste
Stop telling me the way I gotta play. Too much food on my plate.

Believe it or not I super sized my sights on the surprise in the cereal box

"Sleep All Day"

His after moan though cries oh no
He's building up a shine but he take it slow
And he knows it's time to make a change here And time to get away
And he knows it's time for all the wrong reasons, oh, time to end the pain
But he sleep all, sleep all day, sleep all, we sleep all day over again
Why don't we?

She said what would your mother think and how would your father react oh lord
Would he take it all back what they've done
No way he said take it, take it and don't break it with your own two hands
That was my old man and he said
if all is grounded you should go make a mountain out of it

oh what a lovely day to have a slice of humble pie
recalling of the while we used to drive and drive here and there
going nowhere but for us, nowhere but for the two of us
and we knew it was time to take a chance here
and time to compromise our lives just a little while

"Curbside Prophet"

I’m just a curbside prophet
with my hand in my pocket
and I’m waiting for my rocket to come
I’m just a curbside prophet
with my hand in my pocket
and I’m waiting for my rocket, ya'll

y’see it started way back in nyc
when i stole my first rhyme from the m.i.c.
at a west end avenue at 63
the beginning of a leap year, february, ’96
with a guitar picked up in the mix
i committed to the licks like a nickel bag of tricks
well look at me now
look at me now
look at me now, now, now, now

i'm just a curbside prophet
with my hand in my pocket
and i'm waiting for my rocket to come
i'm just a curbside prophet
with my hand in my pocket
and i'm waiting for my rocket, ya'll

well you’re never gonna guess
where i’ve been been been
and i have no regrets
that i bet my whole checking account

"Who Needs Shelter"

Good-day sunlight
I'd like to say how truly bright you are
You don't know me but I know you
You're my favorite star
Follow you I will so lets get moving

Who needs shelter when the mornings coming?
Absolutely there's no one
Who needs shelter from the sun?
Not me, no. not anyone.

By your clock the cock rooster crows
Then off to work where everybody goes
Slow, But eventually they get there
Picking up the day shift back where all left off
Confined and pecking at relationships
You know it's only a worthless piece of shit

Who needs shelter when the mornings coming?
Absolutely there's no one
Who needs shelter from the sun?
Not me, no. not anyone.

I'd sleep it all away but the sun wont let me
I'd miss those lovely days of summer

Good-day sunlight
I'd like to say how truly bright you are

saw fireworks from the freeway and behind closed eyes I cannot make them go away
Cause you were born on the fourth of july, freedom ring
now something on the surface it stings
that something on the surface it kind of makes me nervous who says that you deserve this
and what kind of god would serve this? We will cure this dirty old disease
if you've gots the poison I've gots the remedy



the remedy is the experience. It is a dangerous liaison
I say the comedy is that its serious. Which is a strange enough new play on words
I say the tragedy is how you're gonna spend the rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends when it all amounts to nothing in the end.



I won't worry my life away.

I won't worry my life away.

"I'll Do Anything"

Go make your next choice be your best choice
And if you're looking for a boy with a voice, well baby I'm single
Are you in the mood for some dude, are you in the mood to be subdued
Or would you rather just mingle?
Let's get set then to go then and let us jet set we'll be like the jetsons
You can be Jane my wife. Should I marry Jane tonight?

I would if I could. I'd do anything spontaneously.

Or we can keep chilling like ice cream filling
We can be cool in the gang if you'd rather hang
Ain't no thing. I can be lugubrious with you.
I got no ifs ands ors no wits or whats about it
But this place is getting crowded and my house is two blocks away
Or maybe closer

I would if I could. I'd do anything spontaneously.
You know I would, if I could. I'll do anything spontaneously.

If you could be nimble, you'd have it simple just like me.

"You And I Both"

Was it you who spoke the words that things would happen but not to me
Oh things are gonna happen naturally
Oh taking your advice I'm looking on the bright side
And balancing the whole thing
But often times those words get tangled up in lines
And the bright lights turn to night
Until the dawn it brings
Another day to sing about the magic that was you and me

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
And others just read of
Others only read of the love, the love that I love.

See I'm all about them words
Over numbers, unencumbered numbered words
Hundreds of pages, pages, pages for words
More words then I had ever heard and I feel so alive

Cause you and I both loved
What you and I spoke of
And others just read of
And if you could see me now,
Oh love, no
You and I, you and I
Not so little you and I anymore, mmm...
