Those Drums Walked out to the edge of town and looked out on the hills surrounding me I do believe that everything is tied up like a North Korean spy inside a room without a key It’s all stuck in slow suspension, clumsy underwater fencing, yesterday’s newspaper weapons, careless first and sloppy secondly It was the drums that convinced me to come home It was the droning in my bones Little cells never really held me well Never quite could carry me Over at the baseball field where all the hearts I tried to steal run free Out beyond the first base line My sneakers off and grass stains on the knee Fortify the earth below me Planting every step so slowly Can I be the one and only… It was the drums that convinced me to come home It was the droning in my bones Little cells never really held me well Never quite could carry me It was the drums that brought me home I'm convinced there’s magnets in my shoes Keep pulling me right back to you Every time I try to pry them loose It’s no use It was the drums that convinced me to come home It was the droning in my bones

You To The Rescue! I hit bottom and the bottom dropped out And the top came unhinged and the sky fell down Was draped in sackcloth and drying my tears Pumping my brakes and grinding my gears And it was you to the rescue, yeah you to the rescue It was you to the rescue I ate crow and the crows ate me And the blows came faster than I could breathe But I turned my back, grabbed the oars Made a brave face and faced my fears And it was you to the rescue, yeah you to the rescue It was you to the rescue all these years And it was me with the can of gasoline when you were empty And it was me with the joke when you were down, down, down And it was me with the breeze when the stagnant air just wouldn’t move And it was you to the rescue, yeah you from the start, It was you to the rescue,yeah you who saved my drowning heart And it was me with the can of gasoline when you were empty And it was me with the joke when you were down, down, down And it was me with the breeze when the stagnant air just wouldn’t move And it was you to the rescue, yeah you to the rescue It was you to the rescue It was you to the rescue, yeah you from the start It was you to the rescue, yeah you who saved my drowning art

Tigerstripe Cushions Didn’t ya notice the way I came to you Came unfocused, came unglued I was talking local news But you and your friends, talking bout big plans To travel the world on a pogo stick Jumping around like some lunatics Ain’t getting off till we all get sick And go over the edge And didn’t ya see me holding up the walls I wouldn’t let you come to any harm You’d be safer in somebody’s arms But you and your friends talking bout big plans To travel the world on a pogo stick Jumping around like some lunatics Ain’t getting off till we all get sick And go over the edge Well I noticed the way you looked at me Like I was a house cat caught in a tree You and your friends on tigerstripe cushions You were watching me from a distance Well I was open to a little discussion Me and your friends talking bout big plans To travel the world on a pogo stick Jumping around like some lunatics Ain’t getting off till we all get sick And go over the edge Go over the edge Go over the edge Me and your friends Talking bout big plans Talkin bout big plans Talkin bout big plans

You Should Know The secant of a circle enters where it please, crosses the middle and leaves. The two points created, related by the line, separated by space and by time. And you should know that I'm a little crazy Sometimes I think a dragon's out to slay me And I know that you're a little uptight Cause I watch you when you walk and I've seen the way you drive The secant of a circle coming from afar Casually cuts through the heart The angles becoming entangled in the cords Shaking belief to the core And you should know that I'm a little crazy Sometimes I think a dragon's out to slay me And I know that you're a little uptight Cause I watch you when you walk and I've seen the way you drive I see the way you walk, I see the way you drive I see the way you come home I see the way you're always on time I see the way you walk, I see the way you drive I see the way you come home I don't know why I don't sometimes The jet trail crossing the circle of the sun Creating two parts from one The barrier broken, the sound lingers on Long after the vapors are gone And you should know You should know You should know You should
