When Will I Follow It Through 

 

 

I thought I'd break the camel's back

I Stood atop just for the view 

Mamiya sees but ceased to snap

Wish I could focus in on you

 

When will I follow it through

When will I follow it through

When will I follow it through

Parish Parish dive for to the eye can see

 

I thought I'd paint my eyeball black

I'd love to do that in the school

I'd like to make a feature length

And focus in on you

 

When will I follow it through

When will I follow it through

When will I follow it through

Parish Parish dive for the eye can see

 

Sidewalk chalk sketches of

Taxi detail chipping off

Is a cold worse than the flu?

 

When will I follow it through

When will I follow it through

When will I follow it through

When will I follow it through

When will I follow it through

When will I follow it through

Nosemilk

In my mouth

Fill it up

Sundried and

In my cup

Leaky nose

On my face

Fix it up

Lick my face-

faucet drink my nosemilk, yum
 

Sleepy tongue

Litter box

Eat from the

Dirty socks

Thirsty mouth

On my face

Pasta Sauce

Lick my face-

faucet drink my nosemilk, yum
 

She gets lost sometimes

He gets lost sometimes

Lovers lost to a problem child

We get lost sometimes

1,2,3

4,5,8

Jam in jar

Jam in face

Jump, kick, spit

Spit on me

Carefully

Lick my face-

faucet drink my nosemilk, yum

Split pea soup

Pour on you

I know you

Want me to

Put it on

Into me

Christmas tree

Lick my face-

faucet drink my nosemilk, yum

She gets lost sometimes

He gets lost sometimes

Lovers lost to a problem child

We get lost sometimes

Couscous Jonah / Cocaine Jonah

Jonah's a little doll boy, living in a dollhouse

He can't reach the very top shelf but he really does try

Jonah makes couscous, and Jonah does cocaine

Jonah makes couscous, and Jonah does cocaine

I'd like to imagine Jonah digging tunnels and holes

But Jonah's by the ocean and he's doing just fine

Jonah makes couscous, and Jonah does cocaine

I love Jonah anyways

You're my best friend, Jonah

Happy Birthday

Jonah! Jonah! Jonah! Jonah! Jonah!

Jonah!

Jonah! Jonah! Jonah! Jonah! Jonah!

Jonah! Jonah! 

Jonah!

Jonah! Jonah! Jonah!

(Jonah, Jonah)

Dear Friend

Dear Friend

Friend of mine

You've been a friend so long, so long like it's goodbye

We were free

To believe

The world was at our fingertips, the colors too bright to see

We used to dance and sing,

and play among the stars

I guess a things have changed

Since you've gained what's been lost and found

We used to laugh and think, 

a million miles and hour

I guess a things have changed

Since you found what you truly desire

Dear Friend

Friendly ghost

I thought that what we had was the thing that mattered most

I thought you'd stay

But you left town

I think I really know what your priorities are now

We used to laugh and think, 

a million miles and hour

I guess a things have changed

Since you found what you truly desire

Are we still friends?

Are we still friends?

Are we still friends?

Weren't we once friends?

Illusion

Window panes look me in my eyes

I think there's glass in my mirror

I'm in my mirror all by myself

He's in my mirror all by himself

(He's) the can, and you're the opener

She's the queen, but I've stolen her

Is this just a spirit?

Are you seeing the truth?

Is this just a spirit?

I'm not cut and dry and—

But I'm still not sure

But I'm still not sure

I'm just an illusion
