Desert sunrise six twenty one Rising just like fate Baby you know this is never the end If you trust the world All I can do is smile As you soften your eyes And draw curves with your questions ‘Til there’s nothing left to say but someday Infinite destination You’re every dream I ever had We’re just pilgrims dancing unstuck in time Infinite destination Any life you can have Dancing forever free from time The future has its enemies, too They don’t like people like me; they don’t like people like you In other words, you got a beautiful attitude I never take it for granted How your eyes reverse time Soft as day breaks and fades the night away Infinite destination You’re every dream I ever had We’re just pilgrims dancing unstuck in time Infinite destination Every life you ever had Dancing forever free from time Infinite destination (You’re) every dream I ever have Just a pilgrim dancing unstuck in time

Today I am not turning on the radio All the talk is right vs black and wrong vs white I’m gonna head out into the neighborhood I’m gonna see some friends I’m going to try to live beyond every mistake I am not going to fall in love today I don’t feel like saving a tree today I refuse to be a ritual Jellyfish come to mind In winter Something about swarming wet snow The cold of a thousand needles Poison slowly breaking synapses To the jellyfish, it's like a peaceful drift Through an addavan cupcake To write in silence is impossible Even with the radio off The Internet is sitting in a window Behind the window in which I write I don’t have a typewriter Or enough paper to write off grid today So I’m going to enjoy my addavan cupcake With its rainbow sprinkle arpeggio And <del>moist</del> chorus filling Today I am not turning on the radio That’s what @averagecabbage would do I’m gonna head out into the neighborhood I’m gonna see some friends

I want to take a zipline Through my mind (But) no one speaks our language Down here Where’s that number? I need to call The Doctor We wanna get draddled And set fire to the beach But the dolls are at the border And the pilot’s getting screened I need to call The Doctor Where’s that number? There are shooting stars In Orion’s Belt Swinging high from a chandelier It would be such a waste To be out in space Without a doctor What’s that number? We need a zipline Baby you are so fine Caressing my mind You see forever You see through me But there’s no contradiction Between what I’m feeling And what I’m seeing In your eyes There are shooting stars In Orion’s Belt Swinging high from a chandelier It would be such a waste To be out in space Without a doctor Without your number w/out a zipline w/out your number w/out a zipline

Nina had a dream when she was younger Scorpions came over to play She awoke to find herself with a daughter And 2 tickets on the Punta Mita train She’s got a life Making jewelry for tourists Working out of the Revolution Café She knows there’s no where left to run away There’s nothing to lose where there’s nothing to gain Every day Nina stopped to read a notice Behind a rack of postcards at the café It said “I will exorcise any demon!” It showed a path through the jungle to a cave A couple years later Nina gave her Daughter to a neighbor Said she’d be back in a couple of days “I’m taking a walk into the jungle hills So my baby never knows of my pain.” She packed a bag with money and cigarettes And her grandmother’s knife just in case She disappeared into the canopy Leaving the dusty outskirts of town in her wake The sorceress used the knife to mix an elixir Said she’d seen this pain before She said “Nina, the truth floats over time. Drink down, and you’ll dream no more.” Nina spent her life Making jewelry for tourists Working where everyone else escapes She knew there was no where left to run away She had nothing to lose when she jumped this train

You say Breathe. Dream. And as you fall away Drink in the sky Everything about you just shines You and I get unstuck in time There is no line between you and me The way you float over sand The way you live without a plan If I could only use your eyes to see You say Breathe. Dream. And as you fall away Drink in the sky Feel free as you walk so soft into the light With you I’m lost but not alone like a mariachi saxophone I want to hear every note you play You say Breathe. Dream. And as you fall away Drink in the sky Leave time. Fly so soft Into your life You say Breathe. Dream. And as you fall away Drink in the sky

I will leave it to you to guess what I am thinking I’ve got a secret and you know I never spill Maybe I’m a spy. Maybe I’m undercover Keeping enemies of freedom on their guard Justice and fairness are not the same Crashing cars and crashing waves Don’t you know that only falling rain makes us all the same? Rules always fail to erase what can’t be burned Only practical wisdom rebuilds the world In times of desperation everyone rides an underground Beautiful people start to disappear All around Justice and fairness are not the same Crashing cars and crashing waves Don’t you know that only falling rain makes us all the same? Tomorrow I’ll protect a movement Tomorrow I die for a friend Justice and fairness are not the same Crashing cars and crashing waves Don’t you know that only falling rain makes us all Crashing cars and crashing waves Justice and fairness are not the same Don’t you know that only falling rain makes us all the same?

You never know just how long you have Before you go Away So take back life; hide it from view It will only be us and the wind Times are down but we’re ok Lines are down but we’re ok We’re ok. You never know just how many times You get to say Hello Come out with me take the f-train Into the night We’ll disappear Times are down but we’re ok Lines are down but we’re ok We’re ok. When you send light into the world It scatters and reflects But it never dies

When they dig us up – they might never know We dug deep – and left evidence as far down as they will go They might even think we were older than dinosaurs Arrogance thinks we’ll see the end of the world That we’d be last ones – to ever see the truth/the truth it’s just funny how much truth you find ½ way between here & there so many secrets you can’t begin to dare to leave escaping only in dreams looks like it comes down tonight to AustinTown They’re gonna say we went backwards – all the way back Before we went forwards again Here it comes around again And there goes the the truth/the truth it’s just funny how much truth you find ½ way between here & there so many secrets you can’t begin to dare to leave Escaping only in dreams looks like it comes down tonight to AustinTown

Back in Brooklyn under sleeping trees And all these thoughts of Mexico All my dreams they have more meaning here Cause I’m all alone With my sleeping trees We flew into the stars In you I found faith to let go And in some other time and space We’re never apart We wake up stars I was thinking about how we say good bye Too few words to cover the truth You know I will always get lost in your eyes I want you to know That I miss you I want you to know I know one day you’ll hear this song Drawing lines that feel the same We’ll still be riding an endless wave To a little surfing town, my Sayulita I was thinking about how we say good bye Too few words to cover the truth You know I will always get lost in your eyes I want you to know That I’ll always love you I want you to know Everything that’s true everything that's true is you everything that's true is inside you

Nina tuvo un sueño cuando era joven Escorpiones llegaron a jugar Ella se despertó descubriendo tener una hija Y 2 tickets para el tren de Punta Mita Ella se pasa la vida haciendo joyas para turistas Trabajando en el Café Revolución Ella sabe que ya no se puede huir No se pierde nada cuando no hay nada que ganar Cada día Nina se detuvo a leer un anuncio Detrás del estante de tarjetas postales en el café Decía “Puedo exorcizar cualquier demonio!” Mostrando el camino a una cueva a través de la selva Un par de años más tarde, Nina dio su hija a un vecino Dijo que volverá en un par de días “Voy a dar un paseo por la colinas de la selva Para que mi bebé nunca sepa de mi dolor.” Empacó una bolsa con dinero y cigarrillos Y el cuchillo de su abuela, por si acaso Ella desapareció en el dosel de la selva Dejando el pueblo polvoriento en su estela. La bruja utiliza el cuchillo para mezclar un elixir Dijo que ya había visto este dolor Ella dijo: “Nina, la verdad flota en el tiempo. Beba, y ya no soñaras más.” Nina pasó su vida haciendo joyas para turistas Trabajando donde todos los demás se escapan Ella sabe que ya no tiene que huir No tiene nada que perder cuando elige otro tren

about

Written from January - March 2009 after draddled joyful adventures with friends in Mexico, Vegas and Brooklyn.

I dreamed I played these songs on a morning talk show called “Hola, Sayulita!” and there was no hopelessness, only uplift.

Everything that's true is you.
