Airplanes They soar Rise and fall Safely back to earth Not all Creatures Of war Fly and risk Safety of the earth For all Towers They soar Rise and fall Safely over time Not all Towers In war Fall and risk Safety every time For all Creatures Still sore Rise and fall Softly in the earth Not all Airplanes Should soar High and far Safely from this earth For now

I need, I need Rich soil, rich soil to flow Then I, then I Can hold, can help my garden grow Sometimes, sometimes Dark sky, dark sky surrounds But somewhere, somewhere Sunshine, the sun shines bright above the clouds I am just a dry tree Holy Heartthrob water me You knew me when I was a seed I need you here sincerely Tumbleweed Open eyes, open eyes See fine, see fine for now But closed eyes, closed eyes See beyond, see beneath the ground Above ground, above ground I look, I look to see But I know, I know The King, the kingdom is within me I am just a dry tree Holy Heartthrob water me You knew me when I was a seed I need you here sincerely Tumbleweed If it's rained once It's rained a million times And every time I cover to stay dry But even so In darkness I can't stop The growth within Still straining for one single drop Hold fast, dig in, take root, begin Logos, feed me, give life, to this tree Wind blows, takes leaves, snow falls, roots freeze Sun shines, clouds fade, steadfast, not afraid Bear fruit, good cry, new seed, bye bye I stand, I feel, rain's touch, will soon heal Each day, more pain, each pain, more rain Each day, more pain, each pain, more rain falls I am just a dry tree Holy Heartthrob water me You knew me when I was a seed I need you here sincerely Tumbleweed young arms reach wide for sky but old bones and roots groan for life inside

I can feel it in my fillings The pressure and the tingling While my ears got a constant ringing Ooh you want a piece of me From my estimation The formative years Need full documentation Of laughter and tears Analysis paralysis Is my final plea Compulsive until treacherous Did a number on me We run a tight ship here Finesse all the way Unpredictable features And dividends that pay So forth and so on (I object) on what grounds We'd claim ex post facto If that were allowed I couldn't have cared more Before I got involved That this was all here Before I was called Disloyal redundant Cantankerous fool You salient pedant Special interest group tool I can feel it in my fillings The pressure and the tingling While my ears got a constant ringing Ooh you want a piece of me

Hey, have you heard the good news I can tie my own shoes And I even double knot them If I could just learn how to stand Then I would be your mirror Please if you'd be mine That way when we look around We'll know that we're just fine Loved is the son of Wanted Maybe we should all just get adopted Throw a little salt and pepper on our wounds And look at me when you need to be groomed Because I will be your mirror Please if you'd be mine That way when we look around We'll know that we're just fine Broken, cracked, hit by truck No need to worry about seven years luck Together we'll be living in the we I knew that some day He'd make a man out of me So that I could be your mirror Please if you'd be mine That way when we look around We'll know that we're just fine Emphasis, theology, tradition It's a can of worms I'd rather not open Because the mirror, mirror, mirror, mirror on the wall Says J.C. won't let me fall And I am your mirror Please if you'd be mine That way when we look around We'll know that we're just fine

Lets go out to the country Let go and give me your hand Take me away from the city To live off the fat of the land Away to a land called Wisconsin As if all you people did care So long it's been good to know you Soon I will breath in fresh air This is a perfect new nest home A plot fit for promising growth For cows pigs chickens and horses Barley wheat corn hay and oat Away from the bright lights and bustle I've never seen stars shine so bright I can't wait to be a part of nature Beautiful peaceful and quiet I wake up at four in the morning I hope I get used to it soon I drink all the time because my back hurts Under the light of the moon I pictured me riding a tractor And you in the garden for hours Finally being self sufficient And children to milk all the cows Lets go back to the city Away from this farm and its weeds To stores that contain all necessities And money is all that we need

Paper cuts always cut On the days that I'm most stressed I pay for smokes when broke And drink until more depressed They all call when I'm busy But never when I'm flat bored So I pray when I'm unlucky Need a favor or last resort I've got sentences with syllables And actions based on principles That don't mean a lick Most of the time Bobbing and weaving And trying to avoid low blows Fed up and worn out From using legos to build logos Construction resumes Until every piece is used And a motive is formed From anonymous tips and clues I've got sentences with syllables And actions based on principles That don't mean a lick Most of the time I'm in a bad way When I weigh out the options Of a person, place, or thing Lost in compromise and adoption But don't count me out Because I'm an enterprising soul I can speak matter of factly With tone and control I've got sentences with syllables And actions based on principles That don't mean a lick Most of the time
