I wanna live where culture kills machines and decent melodies will haunt you in your dreams. I wanna laugh once again before I die. Do you think that you could try? Do you need a reason why? From the cradle to the amp to the grave who’s life tonight will be saved. If there’s vultures on your bones but they just won’t leave you alone, they just won’t leave you alone. I believe in you, can you believe in me when junk technology is the new mythology? I’ve written you a song. If you’d like to sing along trust your feelings they’re not wrong. Once you hear it then it’s gone. From the cradle to the amp to the grave who’s life tonight will be saved. If there’s vultures on your bones but they just won’t leave you alone, they just won’t leave you alone. If my afterlife has got a lazy undertow, you can feel my tempo slow, feel the windy tarmac blow. Like leaves on the breeze beneath the rubble and debris, broken glass, swarm of bees we’re stardust you and me. From the cradle to the amp to the grave who’s life tonight will be saved. If there’s vultures on your bones but they just won’t leave you alone, they just won’t leave you alone.

I don’t know how or when but I will live to see you face again. I don’t know how soon it’ll be my ride waits outside impatiently. I don’t know if you ever think of me when you close your eyes and drift to sleep. When I feel my heart attack looking forward, looking back, the more I learn, the less I seem to know, the more I learn, the less I seem to know. But you and I will meet again. You and I will meet again. You and I will meet again someday. My half life burns a soft white glow. Hesitation blues I’m fading slow. Up above in the sky there’s a place where you reside. In the clouds, in the air I hear your voice I smell your hair. People everywhere come and go, come and go. People everywhere come and go, come and go. But you and I will meet again. You and I will meet again. You and I will meet again someday. But you and I will meet again. You and I will meet again. You and I will meet again someday.

Do you wanna feel invisible? Do you wanna disappear? Do you crave radio silence in the shadows going clear? Practice your super powers of keeping your mouth shut real tight. Follow the steps of success, repetition is key you’ll see. Secret typing, secret code. Sleep in the daytime, sleep all alone. There’s no busy signal they can’t reach your voicemail now you’re in airplane mode. Airplane Mode. I blame it on my computer, don’t wanna stare at the screen. I wanna crash the thing in the swimming pool, memory motel in my dreams. Pulling the curtain, take a sleeping pill. I can’t get you off of my mind. Follow the steps of success and practice your smile---for a while. Secret typing, secret code. Sleep in the daytime, sleep all alone. There’s no busy signal they can’t reach your voicemail now you’re in airplane mode. Airplane Mode. Airplane Mode.

Do you know my poetry? I’m sending you a line to see if you exist. Mainly when I’m high, THC like wind blowing slow across the desert below. Where stars hang low, ripe fruit on the vine shining bigger and brighter than they do at home. Sometimes I send you messages though I send ‘em with my mind, ‘cause I do believe you’re the telepathic kind. Do you ever really wanna unplug your life? Board up the windows? Shut off the lights? Then Maybe I’ll check out from this cheap motel and the spell you cast forget that as well. I wanna billow in the breeze like plastic shopping bags, abandon my post avert my eyes. Sometimes I send you messages though I send ‘em with my mind, ‘cause I do believe you’re the telepathic kind. If you hear the words I’m saying and you feel the chords I’m playing there’s an echo calling out your name. It’s all static and low chatter, but it doesn’t really matter. I will always feel the same. Sometimes I send you messages though I send ‘em with my mind, ‘cause I do believe you’re the telepathic kind. Sometimes I send you messages though I send ‘em with my mind, ‘cause I do, yes I do believe you’ll reply.

Tonight I’m eating creme brulee floating in a heart shaped tub. My pothead electrician Werner Von Braun installed it just the other day. I recall your heart was like a big hotel for vagabonds and fools like me. I’m an angel investor on SSI. I’m gonna watch the wheels buffering. Gonna watch the wheels buffering. I’m your future, I’m your past I begged you once please make this last and the best thing that I’ve ever seen was you in your white denim jeans. Now you’re stuck in some kinda weird arms race to be pinteresting perfect all the time. In your star spangled swimsuit relaxing by the pool it’s all fake palm trees and scenic skylines. I’m your future, I’m your past I begged you once please make this last. You were the best thing that I’ve ever seen. You’re in my thoughts and dreams, my vivid memories of you in your white denim jeans. White Denim Jeans. White Denim Jeans. I bet you can’t unhear this song. You gotta fill your ears with Novocaine. I’m your future, I’m your past I begged you once please make this last. You were the best thing that I’ve ever seen. You’re in my thoughts and dreams, my vivid memories of you in your white denim jeans. White Denim Jeans. White Denim Jeans. White Denim Jeans.

Pour some pixie dust on the wings of your shiny jet silver plane. Billowed sails unfurl them and take you back to where I am right now to where I am right now, If you arrive in the dead of night I will draw the blinds to keep out the light, pour your bath, boil your tea, refill your cup endlessly. That’s where I am right now. That’s where I am right now. I don’t mind standing here and killing time in the X-ray line to board your private airline in the sky. Ooh ooh ooh private airline in the sky Ooh ooh ooh private airline in the sky Private airline in the sky I will watch you unfold like a paper crane reveal yourself slowly call my name. Lay beside you ‘til the morning comes ‘til prevailing winds blow you safely home. That’s where I am right now. That’s where I am right now. I don’t mind standing here and killing time in the X-ray line to board your private airline in the sky. Ooh ooh ooh private airline in the sky Ooh ooh ooh private airline in the sky Private airline in the sky Ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh private airline in the sky Ooh ooh ooh private airline in the sky Ooh ooh ooh private airline in the sky Private airline in the sky

I was buying pot from an ex-cosmonaut eating three square meals a week. Three hundred dollar bills tucked the mattress underneath, you could say my prospects were bleak. I walked skyscraping streets trying to find a job when I ran into a girl I used to know. Playing drums in a band, eating beans from a can, unemployed in chicago Waiting to hear from my man Vladimir, it was hot outside--about a hundred degrees. I bought popsicles at the Jewel, I dropped out of graduate school, all my friends were Japanese. We had really good rapport, I spent the night on Kyoko’s floor in a building designed by Mies van der Rohe. I got drunk on her balcony, I sang like a Valkyrie, unemployed in chicago. I was doing time waiting in the X-ray line at the free clinic that welcomed drop-ins. That’s when I saw you I didn’t know what I would do with a Hippy Socialist Mary Poppins. except listen to Cibbo Matto, drink sake from the bottle. We get naked and watched Dr. Zhivago. When your student loan check was spent we couldn’t make the rent. We were unemployed in chicago.

I drove you down to oakland around 2 AM, total ghost town. The blood orange moon was hanging low over Lake Merritt cast in shadows. Do you hear me whisper in your ear, talking to your ghost telling her just her how I feel. I’ll go home and type you a bold manifesto; metaphors and adjectives freely flow. Like lovers that leave forlorn embattled, branches entangled--lessons learned. Like mountains and canyons that start to tremble. Have you felt the earth shaken below? Have you seen the crow overtake the sparrow? Have you smelled the cedar, seen the dove? Have you felt the morning light chilled to the marrow? Held a newborn baby, felt it’s love? I just wanna kiss you in California, hold you real close and don’t let go. Look into your stardust eyes, see a sunrise, sleep beside you, wake up in the foggy glow. But I recall the sound of your voice, it was like I had no choice in this matter. Blood orange moon.
