We danced on a pin
And the marrow flies flapped around in figure eights
And as it trickled down my chin...
We lifted the plaque
And the sun peaked in through a crack beneath the door
And the sky inched closer,
Hoping to find what I had opened for, what I had opened for.

Inside, the pillow peels, the wax conceals the floor.
I find I'm still again, but much more than before.

The gentle journey jars to stop,
The drifting dream is done.
The long-gone goblins lurk ahead
The deadly that we thought were dead,
And now we'll walk as men have walked
Through years not yet begun.
The gentle journey wanders on,
The deadly lie there waiting,
Every one.

I dive though the grass
And the ground fills in around me in slow motion
Like I'm a melting ball of glass.
I spit out into space
And it washes through my face with warm divide
And the reflex diode
Spreads it's allegiance around the mountainside,
Around the mountainside.

It seems my fate is hewn in my cocoon where I hide.
I tried to lose my cross, but only lost my guide.

The gentle journey jars to stop,
The drifting dream is done.
The bumble birds have ceased to shout
The things you scream when lights go out
And kingdoms never cry out loud
Until they're overrun.
The gentle journey wanders on,
The deadly lie there waiting,
Every one.

From "Jupiter the Balloon Horse"




Some apartments on this road

Aren't strictly up to code
Ive got a feeling I'm a fire chief

Got safety on my mind
Dalmatian close behind
Ive got a feeling I'm a fire chief

Good Morning Team!
Hi chief.

You there, polish up the pole
Think quality control
Ive got a feeling I'm a fire chief

Stay mentally alert
Or people could be hurt
Ive got a feeling I'm a fire chief

This whole station is a mess
Tidy up at my behest
These are orders from the chief
Why have you not acquiesced
Why have you not acquiesced

Here's why I will not obey
Right after lunch today
I had a feeling I'm a fire chief

Ive got the notion, too
I wonder if it's true
Yes, definitely I'm a fire chief

Self-discipline strength, endurance, and a sense of public service
Mechanical aptitude, public education and courage

You two are impertinent sauceboxes!

We 're all fired up as hell
We feel that we 're chiefs, as well
All of you
No one here is what youd call
Subordinate personnel
But how can that be
Subordinate personnel

Weve got neighbors to protect
And buildings to inspect
Weve got a feeling we 're all fire

We tell people not to jump
We operate the pump
Weve got a feeling we 're all fire

Some apartments on this road
Aren't strictly up to code
Weve got a feeling we 're all fire chiefs

Got safety on our mind
Dalmatian close behind
Weve got a feeling we 're all fire chiefs

Shoot water from a hose
Don't matter where it goes
Weve got a feeling we 're all fire chiefs

My tabby cat is stuck
We'll go and get the truck
Weve got a feeling we 're all fire chiefs

Self-discipline strength, endurance, and a sense of public service
We 're all fire chiefs
Mechanical aptitude, public education and courage
We 're all fire chiefs

From"Tender is the Heart"


You want to ride

With the big boys, Child
I fell in love with a
Fine looking fat man
You want to spin, girl
You got to squeeze in
I fell in love with a
Fine looking fat man
Triple XL
Triple XL
Triple XL
Triple XL
I'm living large
And I'm in charge
I fell in love with a
Fine looking fat man
Fine looking fat man
Fatty fat
Fatty fat
That fat man's fine
That fat man's mine
Fine looking fat man

From "Black Bean"

I just found out I'm just a figurehead
Why am I always the last to know
Call the front desk
Tell the concierge
That I won't go, oh
Oh no, I won't go, no I won't go!
Oh no, I won't go, no I won't go!

Could I be more dim
Chances slim
Simply put I'm simple as they come
I'm downright dumb,
So feed me anything
I'll be pushed behind,
Undermined
A burden to mankind.

Figurehead
The human fraction
Figurehead
No course of action
Driven to distraction at last

Oh, so goodbye
Safe inside my stronghold in the sky
Now is the time to stay dry
But when I flood the world you will know why

They think I'm a jumper
That I'll put on a show
But they're the ones in danger
Down there sixteen floors below
You want bad I'll give you bad
I'll give you all the worst you've had
You're a big crowd
You're the cradle of civilization

Spit and shake take my wrist
I will not resist
I will not be missed but
When you're soaking wet
You might forget
To feed me anything.
You've got butterflies
In your eyes
But your nets human sized.

Figurehead
The human fraction
Figurehead
No course of action
Driven to distraction at last

Oh, so goodbye
Safe inside my stronghold in the sky
Now is the time to stay dry
But when I flood the world you will know why.

Figurehead
The human fraction
Figurehead
No course of action
