Saw it up on the wall Read it (reddit?) Let it stay through the fall Let it (let it) I am here to recall all of it right now I am here to recall x2 (Upon return from a) prowl Pet it (petted?) Then it gave me a growl Fed it (fêted?) I am here to recall all of it right now I am here to recall x2 Here to hear what I hear through From there to here To here from there Someone threw me a ball I did get it And I took and take all the credit (credit) Here too hear what I hear threw From there to hear too Hear from there Outta my way See something say something I remember that Vanishing neighbors Pestilent vapors I remember that Prattling Babbling Tales of the battle I dreamed But never had Was bad It doesn't work like that.

Song 06 Dawn of the Living Dead Dawn of the Living Dead Every light inside the house was out I dreamed of Kung Fu grip The creatures slowly moved about The truck outside looked Invitational I knew I would have to go away The mailbox on the ground Six weeks after Independence Day Beside it Alvah Roebuck’s Catalog of soft nonfiction lay Wishbook page 425 I circled what I wished get someday away Now it's the 21st and Everyone wants their country back And my new friends have found a Magic spell to shield us from attack They would find me somewhere safe to sleep I know I'll probably stay away

Song 07 They’ve Opened Up (The Closed-Up Shop) They've opened up the closed up shop Cross the street from Mom and Pop It sells magic spells Cuz that's what everyone wants Since 1903 or 4 It's been a dozen stores or more Now it sells magic spells Cuz it’s what everyone wants That’s what everyone wants There were tears when it was shuttered Just look at it now There's a line around the corner The venerable Ephemera Snowe Had an office there I know Now it sells magic spells Cuz that's what everyone wants Then it became The Pager Crate In 1998 Now it sells magic spells Cuz that's what everyone wants

Say today is your birthday, the happiest day to you Say, today is your birthday - the happiest day to you Make the cake. Eat the cake. Take a break. Rest.

I’ve mismanaged things I have damaged things Yet am I I am glad that I Never married my longtime Girlfriend’s daughter I am one who tries To not give advice But I must advise, for I think it wise Never marry your longtime Girlfriend’s daughter It isn’t very hard to do No, it’s not very hard to do You, yes you, you can do it too It’s true

Everyone thinks the collection of things they believe is their life - what a thought. No, they're dreaming the life they would live if they didn't not. Climb up tree top Up where the trees stop Now is tomorrow's yesterday Look up my friend See where the stars end Now is tomorrow's yesterday The sun's heading west let it You need some rest get it Should you hear some soft breathing Stop everything Why does snow snow? How high does sky go? Now is tomorrow's yesterday It's heading west let it You need some rest get it Should you hear some soft breathing Stop everything When does dew drop? Where does the sea stop? We'll see tomorrow or the day After tomorrow's yesterday

Song 16 Clarity Contrôle Constancy and Patience Clarity Contrôle Constancy and Patience Lived across the hall from 98 to 02 Now you barely know them And they barely know you it's strange Constancy Controle Clarity & Patience Saw it on the wall They moved away somewhere new Now you barely know them And they barely know you it's strange OK It's alright You might Meet again someday now It's ok It's alright You might Was it three or four? Were they foreign agents? One September 1st Dying in bed of thirst You woke up to complain Through the open door You saw the naked floor The window wet with rain Were there three or four? Were they foreign agents? It's not clear anymore They closed up shop In ‘002 You barely knew them They barely knew you it's strange It will come down When it comes down let it Let it please fall on the trees Fall on your knees if you must Let It Go Remember Deacon Snowe And Ms. Quintessence O’Dust
