Summer Job 02:47
Hey Shrader I haven't come over yet I need to work to Earn some extra cash Can I work under your Wing for a week please? Every morning it gets Harder to get up Installing windows By day, music by night Can you show some tricks You have up your sleeve? You know everyone in town This town's so small Days are long but I need money For these toys I don't want to go home Why are you so cool?

Praha 04:08
Wave of eastern air surrounds me No eye contact, unspoken rules From the Orient, endless past Once desolate, now beginning to thrive Painted cathedrals scratch the sky Higher they are, closer to God Towers blackened from gunpowder Strange to be caught in time of peace Once controlled by those with red stars Left for waste until westerners Commercialized the country, but Is this better or more of the same?

The Beagle 06:51
From liquid fires and swirling skies Fuels the noxious waters Time normalizes the chemistry The most unlikely product emerges Floating puzzle pieces Forms a thing that eats and multiplies All the corners of the world Are covered with life Some die and others carry on Some survive absorbing sunlight Others devour life Of the slow survivors Form shells to protect themselves The faster ones grow fins As do the hunters to keep up One brave soul left the water And it breathed the first breath Some lose scales and live on land Indefinitely Adapting to their climate Species and genera Galloping hooves and burrowing claws And tearing sharp teeth Dominance shifts from Cold to warm blood Climbing hairy ones start To walk on land Their hands slowly lift Off the ground These hands shift their fingers To use tools

I speak of an artist Whose work is beautiful You turn and you look pissed A reaction far from noble You list some of your favorites Of which I've never heard The same after hearing bits You're left without a word Hmmhmmhmmhmm Hmmm Hmm HmHmHm Hmmm Hmmhmmhmmhmm Hmmm Hmm HmHmHm Hmmm Hmmhmmhmmhmm Hmmm Hmm HmHmHm Hmmm Hmmhmmhmmhmm Hmmm Hmm HmHmHm Hmmm Dadadada Daaaa Da Dadadadada Da Dadadada Daaaa Da Dadadadada Da Dadadada Daaaa Da Dadadadada Da Dadadada Daaaa Da Dadadadada Da Dadadada Daaaa Da Dadadadada Da Dadadada Daaaa Da Dadadadada Da Dadadada Daaaa Da Dadadadada Da Dadadada Daaaa Da Dadadadada Da People make the assumption That there is a right or wrong That its void of absolutions In truth its just some songs.
