Come stumble my mirth beaten worker Im Jezmund, the family berzerker Im bought for the price of a flagon of rice The wind buffs the cabin, you speak of your life Or more willingly Locust the Lurker Confuse what you can of the ending And revise your despise so impending Cause I soak on the wrath that you didnt quite mask Im getting it clearly through alternate paths Or mixed in with the signal youre sending But who can unlearn all the facts that Ive learned As I sat in their chairs and my synapses burned And the torture of chalk dust collects on my tongue Thoughts follow my vision and dance in the sun All my vasoconstrictors they come slowly undone Cant this wait til Im old Cant I live while Im young? Cant I live while Im young? But no peace for Jezmund tonight I plug the distress tube up tight And watch what I say as it flutters away And all this emotion is kept harmless at bay Not to educate somebodys fright But who can unlearn all the facts that Ive learned As I sat in their chairs and my synapses burned And the torture of chalk dust collects on my tongue Thoughts follow my vision and dance in the sun All my vasoconstrictors they come slowly undone Cant this wait til Im old Cant I live while Im young? Cant I live while Im young? But who can unlearn all the facts that Ive learned As I sat in their chairs and my synapses burned And the torture of chalk dust collects on my tongue Thoughts follow my vision and dance in the sun All my vasoconstrictors they come slowly undone Cant this wait til Im old Cant I live while Im young? Cant I live while Im young? Cant I live while Im young? Cant I live while Im young?

The two rode on in silence, deeper and deeper into the heart of the forest until they came to the outskirts of a small community. Tela explained to Forbin that they had reached the base of the revolutionaries. The colonel looked up and there in the center of the clearing stood Errand Wolfe. He was a small man but his presence was overpowering. He seemed to emit a kind of violent energy that sent chills down the colonels spine. And as the multi-beast moved towards him, he raised his fist in anger, and his voice filled the forest Oh out near Stonehenge, I lived alone Oh out near Gamehendge, I chafed a bone Wilson, King of Prussia, I lay this hate on you Wilson, Duke of Lizards I beg it all trune for you Talk my duke a mountain, Helping Friendly Book Inasfar as fiefdom, I think you bad crook Wilson, King of Prussia, I lay this hate on you Wilson, Duke of Lizards I beg it all trune for you I talked to my son Roger, Rutherford the same When we had that meeting, over down near Game Wilson, King of Prussia, I lay this hate on you Wilson, Duke of Lizards I beg it all trune for you You got me back thinkin that youre the worst one I must inquire, Wilson Can you still have fun?

In the cool shade of the banana tree On the rugged trail toward the balcony A child of the twentieth century A dried up Goliath and a weasel named Fee Far away in another place A fading beauty named Milly Grace A gospel singer with pocks on her face And a bamboo cane to help her keep the pace Fee was a Buddhist prodigy Long past the age of maturity Someday he knew it would set him free Like it did for Floyd the chimpanzee Oh, Fee Youre trying to live a life thats completely free Youre racing with the wind, youre flirting with death So have a cup of coffee and catch your breath Whoa, Fee Youre trying to live a life thats completely free Youre racing with the wind, youre flirting with death So have a cup of coffee and catch your breath Fee first met Milly in a bar in Peru His heart was jumping like a kangaroo Like a beast in a cage in an old Dutch zoo It was hopping and thumping in wooden shoes But Floyd was jealous and alone He wanted Milly for his own A desperate craving in his bones Their love, he said, I will not condone. Then one day on a ship to Quebec Floyd found Fee and Milly on a lovers trek He picked up a bottle and broke off the neck It sliced through the air and Fee hit the deck Whoa, Fee Youre trying to live a life thats completely free You want to stay with Milly until youre dead But you just got a bottle upside the head Whoa, Fee Youre trying to live a life thats completely free You want to stay with Milly until youre dead But you just got a bottle upside the head Milly turned and began to scream At Floyd, she said, You think youre pretty mean And though she was as thin as a small string bean She slammed him in the face with a nectarine Floyd fell back over the edge of the ship Till he hung from the rail by his fingertip Milly said, Floyd, Ill make you lose your grip With this tiny piece of paper, I can make you slip So Milly took that paper and did the deed Floyd hit the water with astonishing speed And as the sharks circled in and began to feed Milly knew her weasel was finally free Whoa, Fee Youre trying to live a life thats completely free Floyd is dead, hes nothing but a ripple Cause Milly took that paper and sliced him on the nipple Whoa, Fee Youre trying to live a life thats completely free Floyd is dead, hes nothing but a ripple Cause Milly took that paper and sliced him on the nipple Whoa, Fee Youre trying to live a life thats completely free Youre racing with the wind, youre flirting with death So have a cup of coffee and catch your breath Whoa, Fee Youre trying to live a life thats completely free Youre racing with the wind, youre flirting with death So have a cup of coffee and catch your breath

The woman was a dream I had Though rather hard to keep For when my eyes were watching hers, they closed, and I was still asleep For when my hand was holding hers She whispered words and I awoke And faintly bouncing round the room The echo of whomever spoke And I awoke, and faintly bouncing round the room The echo of whomever spoke The place I sought was far beneath, the surface of the sea My sight was poor, but I was sure The sirens sang their song for me They dance above me as I sink I see them through a crystal haze And hear the bouncing round the room The neverending coral maze The crystal haze And hear the bouncing round the room The neverending coral maze Then before and now once more, Im bouncing round the room That time then and once again, Im bouncing round the room That time then and once again, Im bouncing round the room That time then and once again, Im bouncing round the room That time then and once again, Im bouncing round the room And I awoke, faintly bouncing round the room The echo of whomever spoke And I awoke, faintly bouncing round the room The echo of whomever spoke And I awoke, faintly bouncing round the room The echo of whomever spoke
It’s hidden far away But someday I may tell The tale of metal tangle When into your world I fell Without you now I wander soaking secretly afraid But in your grasp the fears don’t last Though some of them have stayed I wheeled around because I Didn’t hear what you had said And saw you dancing with Elihu Up on Leemor’s bed And I was foggy rather groggy You helped me to my car The binding belt enclosing me A Sample in a Jar And on the market stands unfolding With all their willies and their wares I shuffle by alert but numb To all the glances and the glares And I think of you unheeding All the times I raise my cup It’s now I know that you knew That I’d soon end up, end up I wheeled around because I Didn’t hear what you had said And saw you dancing with Elihu Up on Leemor’s bed And I was foggy rather groggy You helped me to my car The binding belt enclosing me A Sample in a Jar You tricked me like the others And now I don’t belong The simple smiles and good times seem all wrong I wheeled around because I Didn’t hear what you had said And saw you dancing with Elihu Up on Leemor’s bed And I was foggy rather groggy You helped me to my car The binding belt enclosing me A Sample in a Jar Oh, a Sample in a Jar Oh a Sample in a Jar Wo-oh, now, a Sample in a Jar

Your time is near, the missions clear Its later than we think Before you slip into the night Youll want something to drink Steal away before the dawn, and Bring us back good news But if youve tread in primal soup Please wipe it from your shoes Just then a porthole pirate Scourged the evening with his cry And sanctuary bugs deprived The monkey of its thigh A dust arose and clogged my nose Before I could blink twice Despite the stuff that bubbled up I gave some last advice: The flesh from Satans dogs Will make the rudiments of gruel Deduct the carrots from your pay You worthless swampy fool Exploding then through fields and fen And swimming in the mire The septic maidens gargoyle tooth Demented me with fire I drifted where the current chose Afloat upon my back And if perchance a newt slimed by Id stuff it in my sack Soon I felt a bubble form, Somewhere below my skin But with handy spine of hedgehog I removed the force within Suzie then removed her mask And caused a mighty stir The angry mob responded Taking turns at grabbing her The foggy caverns musty grime Appeared within my palm I snatched Ricks fork to scrape it off With deadly icy calm The crowd meanwhile had taken Sue And used her like a rag To mop the slime from where the slug Had slithered with the bag In summing up, the moral seems A little bit obscure... Give the director a serpent deflector A mudrat detector, a ribbon reflector A cushion convector, a picture of nectar A virile dissector,a hormone collector Whatever you do take care of your shoes
Throughout the night When theres no direct light And a thin veil of clouds Keeps the stars out of sight I can smell the colors outside on my lawn The moist green organic that my feet tread upon And the black oleander surrounded by blues I get so overwhelmed by olfactory hues
Climb that hill, stay on your feet Scramble for your footing when it gets too steep Youre on the highway now with higher hopes While all around are rolling eggs with living yolks You never get too sad, you never get too blue It must be all the chemtrails raining down on you The justice of the peace cant help you anymore And they just took the covers off the justice of war You got your nice shades on, and the worst days are gone So now the band plays on, you got one life, blaze on You got your nice shades on, and the worst days are gone So now the band plays on, you got one life, blaze on The storm is passing through, lay down your sticks and stones The struggles over now, were all just flesh and bones We were wrong before, it was wrong to trust The shadows cast, were only light and dust And then one day you find, to your intense delight That three wrong turns, can really make a right So why not be like me?

Passing through the corridor I came upon an aging knight Who leaned against the wall in gnarly armor He was on his way to see the king Wilson Wilson Wilson He led me through the streets of Prussia talking As he tried to crush a bug that scurried underneath his boot heel He said there was a place where we should go So he lead me through the forest to the edge of a lagoon by which We wandered til we reached a bubbly spring The knight grew very quiet as we stood there Then he lifted up his visor and he turned to me and he began to sing He said I come from the land of darkness He said I come from the land of doom He said I come from the land of Gamehendge From the land of the big baboon But Im never never going back there And I couldnt if I tried Cause I come from the land of Lizards And the Lizards they have died And the Lizards they have died And the Lizards they have died And the Lizards they have died He told me that the Lizards were a race of people practically extinct From doing things smart people dont do He said that he was once a Lizard too His name was Rutherford the Brave and he was on a quest to save His people from the fate that lay before them Their clumsy end was perilously near The Lizards would be saved, he said, if they could be enlightened By the writings of the Helping Friendly Book In all of Prussia only one existed And Wilson had declared that any person who possessed it was a crook He said I come from the land of darkness He said I come from the land of doom He said I come from the land of Gamehendge From the land of the big baboon But Im never never going back there And I couldnt if I tried Cause I come from the land of Lizards And the Lizards they have died And the Lizards they have died And the Lizards they have died And the Lizards they have died The Helping Friendly Book, it seemed, possessed the ancient secrets Of eternal joy and never-ending splendor The trick was to surrender to the flow We walked along beneath the moon He lead us through the bush till soon We saw before our eyes a raging river He said that we could swim it if we tried And saying this the knight dove in forgetting that his suit of arms Would surely weigh him down and so he sunk And as his body disappeared before me I bowed my head in silence and remembered all thoughts that he had thunk He said I come from the land of darkness He said I come from the land of doom He said I come from the land of Gamehendge From the land of the big baboon But Im never never going back there And I couldnt if I tried Cause I come from the land of Lizards And the Lizards they have died And the Lizards they have died And the Lizards they have died And the Lizards they have died But Rutherford and Forbin werent alone. Suddenly, an unexpected movement caught his eye. On the far side of the river, he saw a shaggy creature standing in the weeds who stared across at Forbin with an unrelenting gaze. A gigantic mass of muscles and claws. The hideous beast reared back and hurled himself in the water and swam toward the region where Rutherford lay. And in a flash, the beast was gone, underneath the surface to the frosty depths below while Forbin, bewildered, waited alone. The seconds dragging by him seemed like hours till finally the colonel felt it all had been a dream. Defeated, he bowed his head and turned to go. Suddenly with a roar, the creature emerged before him and held the brave knights body to the sky. And the creature laid the knight upon the shore. And the colonel fell beside his friend in prayer that hed survive. And Rutherford, brave Rutherford was alive

INTRODUCTION Wilson Wilson Wilson Wilson Wilson Once upon a time, there was a mountain that rose out of a vast green forest. And in the forest, there were birds and lakes and rocks and trees and rivers. The forest was also inhabited by a small group of people called the Lizards. The Lizards were simple people and they had lived in the forest undisturbed for thousands of years in utter peace and tranquility. Once a year when spring came and the first blossoms began to show, the Lizards would gather at the base of the mountain, to give thanks for all that they had. They thanked the birds and they thanked the lakes and they thanked the rocks and the trees and the rivers; but most importantly, they thanked Icculus Icculus lived on top of the mountain, or at least everyone thought so, for no one had actually ever seen him. But they knew he existed, because they had the Helping Friendly Book. Icculus had given the Helping Friendly Book to the Lizards thousands of years earlier as a gift. It contained all of the knowledge inherent in the universe, and had enabled the Lizards to exist in harmony with nature for years. And so they lived, until one day a traveler arrived in Gamehendge. His name was Wilson and he quickly became intrigued by the Lizards way of life. He asked if he could stay on and live in the forest; and the Lizards, who had never seen an outsider, were happy to oblige Wilson lived with the Lizards for a few years, studying the ways of the Helping Friendly Book, and all was well. Until one morning when they awoke and the book was gone. Wilson explained that he had hidden the book, knowing that the Lizards had become dependent on it for survival. He declared himself king and enslaved the innocent people of Gamehendge. He cut down the trees and built a city, which he called Prussia. And in the center of the city he built a castle, and locked in the highest tower of the castle lay the Helping Friendly Book, out of the reach of the Lizards forever. But our story begins in a different time, not in Gamehendge, but on a suburban street in Long Island. And our hero is no king sitting in a castle; he is a retired colonel shaving in his bathroom Colonel Forbin looked square in the mirror and dragged the blade across his cold creamed skin. He saw the tired little folds of flesh that lay in a heap beneath his eyes. Fifty-two years of obedient self-restraint, of hiding his tension behind a serene veil of composure. For fifty-two years he had piled it all on the back burner, and for fifty-two years it had boiled, frothing over in a turbulent storm inside of him. It had escaped through his eyes, reacting with the cigarette smoke and the fluorescent lights and slowly accumulating into a sagging mass. He ran his dripping palm across the stubble on the nape of his neck and thought again about the door He had discovered the door some months back on one of his ritualistic morning walks with his dog McGrupp. It had started out as a typical stroll with McGrupp bounding joyously ahead of the preoccupied colonel. As they reached the apex of the hill, he saw it and he knew it had always been there, and felt foolish for overlooking the door for so long. At first, he tried to ignore it, but he soon found that it was impossible, and slowly his newly acquired knowledge transformed his dreary life into a prison from which there was only one escape. And on this morning, Colonel Forbin stepped through the door...
As I found out that I Had a lot to learn It turns out the tide Had to take its turn The line we had drawn Wasnt straight enough Though timelines were burned We rebuilt the trust I always wanted it this way I always hoped itd be this way I shielded my heart To make sense of this The time spent apart That my conscience missed My mind wandered thoughtlessly In that land Of uncertainty I always wanted it this way I always wanted it this way Ive stayed At my station on the scene And frayed Like the circuits in between And played as the part of a machine And I find out that I Had my mind to learn

Have you seen his striped stockings And heard his sad tales About the kids under the carpet And the purple humpbacked whale Here come the ambassadors They show up one by one Brett is tasting all the soup To see if it is done And Wendys on the windowsill Waiting to be let in And were all in the bathtub now Making bathtub gin And the kings storm the hallway Theyve climbed up through the gate They didnt mean to be impolite But they just couldnt wait Here comes the joker With his silly grin He carries a martini Made of bathtub gin Here comes the joker We all must laugh Cause were all in this together And we love to take a bath

Piper, Piper, the red, red worm Woke last night to the sound of the storm Her words were words I sailed upon
It was late one fall night at a fairground near town When Esther first saw the Armenian man Who groveled toward her and stood by her side With a bucket that swung in his hand His grin stretched the folds of his pasty white cheeks And his lips hurled a dollop of murk on the curb And the lights from the rides showed a mischievous sparkle That flashed in his hollow eyed stare He said Little girl, you can chop off my legs And then peel off my socks if you want to But Id rather you took this old puppet from me That I hold in my pail as we speak And he stood looking down at the innocent girl And she stared at the bucket bewildered Til he lifted the doll for the young girl to see And a giant smile grew on his face She saw the dolls eyes and she couldnt resist And she thanked the man quickly and ran to the church And she burst through the door with puppet held high And a hush filled the chapel, and the people looked mean Esther tried in vain to pacify the mob Quibble grew to spat, to wrangle, then to brawl The frenzied congregation struggled desperately to fetch The pretty puppet snugly nestled deep in Esthers leather sack Through the window of the church a storm began to rage And Esther knew the time had come to flee She scurried down the aisle toward the doorway in the distance And out into the rainstorm where she felt she would be free But the wind was blowing harder and her skirt began to billow Until finally her feet began to lift And she rose above the houses and the people and the chimneys And Esther and the doll were set adrift Floating higher over the hills And the valleys and treetops, theyd flutter and glide Soaring and turning suspended on air With the earth far below them theyd tumble and dive Through the clouds And she began to plummet earthward Till she landed in the nasty part of town She glanced about the village, sure to find the evil men Who rob and pillage in the darkest hour of night Nervously she fumbled for the pouch That held the puppet on her rump Feeling quite outnumbered, Esther hid behind A nearby pile of lumber, where she waited till the dawn Cause it would have been a blunder to succumb To a hoodlum on the prowl When the morning came, she wandered through the streets Along the chilly lake that lay beside the town At last a peaceful moment, but she thought she heard a sound It was an angry mob of joggers coming up to knock her down As Esther stood and shook her head The joggers were approaching And she knew she had no choice left but to swim As the frosty water sank its bitter teeth into her hide She tried to slide the heavy clothing from her skin Naked now she made her way toward the shore When suddenly she felt a tiny tugging at her toe And the puppet shed forgotten wrapped its tiny little arms Around her ankle and wouldnt let her go The waves seemed to open and swallow her whole As the doll pulled her down through the eerie green deep And the sound of the laughing old man filled her ears As she drifted away to a tranquil and motionless sleep
A day in the life of a waiter/addict with delusions of grandeur Spasm waiter dropping to his knees, sees Slander on wrap paper ties Lifting up his head he feels the sunlight in his eyes Grasp a kettle top and shoot the breeze, please Ramble while slop scraper sighs Tossing in his bed at night hell dream until he dies Operations at the sink The Dribble liquid visible beneath his troubled eyes Feels it tilt and start to side Mask a pretty hoppers foot with squeeze cheese Dangle some grape apple pies Tranquil and serene until he runs out of supplies Your hands and feet are mangos Youre gonna be a genius anyway
Shadows Shadows follow toward me as I wander Along the shoreline past the people And I turn and walk away House party Friends are dancing on the hill side For the first time in a long time I want to live another day I see the turtle in the clouds Did I just say that right out loud Now Ive got something in my shoe The green and yellow concrete park The hot dog vendor in the dark I rode my bike out in the rain Imaginary rule book I keep within my head Dont know why I follow All the things it said So pay me no attention As I blend in with the mob Some people call me clueless My last name is Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob Clueless Wallob

My glance is always darting, when I stroll the avenue Avoiding all the obstacles that terrorize my view If you are here with me, I trust you to lead the way When you’re not I follow you, and always go astray Silent in the morning Suspended in the trees Lunch time comes you’ve found your voice It brings me to my knees The volume just increases The resounding echoes grow Till once again I bask in morning stillness, I love so The target that I shoot for seems to move with every breath I tighten all my arteries and make one last request Divine creation hears me, and he squashes me with fear I think that this exact thing happened to me, just last year Silent in the morning You found your voice that brings me to Silent in the morning You found your voice that brings me to Silent in the morning You found your voice that brings me to my knees I will not dismiss you, shelter you, speak with you Smile at you, trust in me, He’d like to brush you off, and I’d agree

Happy happy oh my friend Blow out candles once again Leave the presents all inside Take my hand And let’s take a ride Backwards down the number line You were eight and I was nine Do you know what happened then? Do you know why we’re still friends? Laughing all these many years We pushed through hardships tasted tears Made a promise one to keep I can still recite it in my sleep Every time a birthday comes Call your friend and sing a song Or whisper it into his ear Or write it down Just don’t miss a year You decide what it contains How long it goes but this remains The only rule is it begins Happy happy oh my friend All my friends Come backwards down the number line And when I see you coming down the line With eyes wide open Somewhere in between the past and future Where you drift in time And you can see a different point of view
I’d like to live beneath the dirt A tiny space to move and breathe Is all that i would ever need I wanna live beneath the dirt Where i’d be free from push and shove Like all those swarming up above Beneath their heels i’ll spend my time I’ll wriggle in the earth and dew And sometimes i will think of you And if you ever think of me Kneel down and kiss the earth And show me what this thought is worth
Breath and burning We are made of sand Slowly turning At the waves command And what does it matter That the nightmares all came true? The black clouds have scattered across the sky And theres nothing left we can do But celebrate while the hurricane Throws salt and water into the room The canary died, the healer lied The yellow fields disappeared too soon Mid-air voltage blooms and grows Unstoppable, its instant heat And as sinners plea on bended knee Well be dancing here for days! Breath and burning We are made of sand Slowly turning At the waves command And what does it matter That the ends in sight? Were not going gently Were gonna rage with Page at the dying of the light, hey! The sudden unexpected fate Of sunken ships, was our future path Your string of beads did nothing to Prepare for you what was sure to pass Shadow wheels in shipping lanes The angry winds blew straight from Hell And the tortoise pulls its head inside its shell Breath and burning We are made of sand Slowly turning At the waves command And what does it matter? Itll be over soon Our heads on a platter So lets spin in the light of the moon Weve still got the light of the moon Well dance in the light of the moon, hey!

Aboard a craft bereft of oar I rowed upstream to find Lenore Abducted by a bandit or A king from some forgotten war And mindful of his larval craze The rhinotropic micro-gaze Ignored it and to my amazement Rode to Paris in twelve days This is the work of the guelah papyrus Stranded for a moment on the ocean of Osyrus Absorbing all she can for every member of her clan Expanding exponentially like some recursive virus She take me on, I never fail To ride on the redundant rail Cause when I know shes switched a track Theres always one to take me back And through the bedroom door intrude A fretful frown and spoil the mood Cause though I never really stand that tall She tilt my frame, she watch me fall So maybe I could be a fly And feed arachnid as I die And view the ritual from within The silken tunnel that they spin And through the bedroom door intrude A fretful frown and spoil the mood Cause though I never really stand that tall She tilt my frame, she watch me fall
My sweet one, Ill call you my sweet one Youre my only true sweet one With my all, Ill call you my sweet one From far away, Ill say your name Oh with you, Id travel thick And with you, Id also travel thin And all the spaces in between Id travel with you Youre my sweet one But for now I must sit jail here and ponder the yonder Herbivores ate well cause their food didnt never run Oh, if youre ever unsatisfied with the way lifes treating you You know you can count on me to take good care of you I love you honey oh yes I do you know thats true of course And if your dog or cat ever dies, Ill buy you a ewe
There’ve been times when i wonder And times when i don’t Concepts i’ll ponder And concepts i won’t ever see God isn’t one of these Former or latter Which did you think i meant? It doesn’t matter to me Bug — don’t need it My thoughts faded It doesn’t matter/overrated Cold in my hand In a country pool Standing and waving The rain, wind on the runway Spending or saving Credit or debt Which did you think i meant? Nothing i see can be taken from me Bug — don’t need it My thoughts faded It doesn’t matter/overrated

Last night, in the moments my thoughts were adrift And coasting a terrace, approaching a rift Through which I could spy several glimpses beneath Of the darkness the light from above could not reach I spied wings of reason, herself taking flight And upon yonder precipice saw her alight And glared back at me one last look of dismay As if she were the last one she thought Id betray So much better I said to myself And drawing quite close to the top of the shelf I struggled with destiny upon the ledge And gasped when defeated he slipped off the edge And silence contagious in moments like these Consumed me and strengthened my will to appease The passion that sparked me one terrible night And shocked and persuaded my soul to ignite So much better I said to myself And drawing quite close to the top of the shelf I struggled with destiny upon the ledge And gasped when defeated he slipped off the edge And silence contagious in moments like these Consume me and strengthen my will to appease The passion that sparked me one terrible night And shocked and persuaded my soul to ignite
How far have we fallen, how far can we go? How far will we fall, if there’s nothing below You stand on a rock, suspended in air Emblazoned with sunlight keenly aware That we’ve broken free, something has changed A tear in the fabric, some tiles rearranged We are the no men in no man’s land We are the no men in no man’s land Darkness the one thing we all understand We are the no men in no man’s land We are the no men in no man’s land And the truth will rise above, and fiction fall beneath Although the lies may bite, the truth has all the teeth You see us as a window, you’re happy that we’re here Exposed to all the elements, while inside all is clear But if you hold a mirror, and you turn it to one side The depth you see within at first, will find a place to hide We are the no men in no man’s land The loss of all motion, the absence of sound When there’s no sun to circle around We are the no men in no man’s land
Life in slow motion Feet are in the clay Im going nowhere Been standing here all day I had a notion There was something more to do As I watched the water From the banks of the river, it swelled and grew And I tilt to the left, lean to the right Tilt to the left, and lean to the right Walked on coal and slept on glass Amid swords of sound and daggers of light And my heart is screaming Cause half of what I say is lies And it takes so much to keep up this disguise It takes so much to keep up this disguise I see a doorway in the haze and Im trying to get to it The stars of peepholes in a wall, we can walk through it The memorys still so real, the memorys still so real I guess its never really over, even when its over But Im vibrating with love and light Im pulsating with love and light In a world gone mad, a world gone mad There must be something more than this Im vibrating with love and light Pulsating with love and light In a world gone mad, a world gone mad There must be something more than this And the trumpet call is sounding The trees are bending low Theres a great fire in the distance There must be something more than this And the shadows will all be dancing With red dust on our clothes When we leave by tornado Elbows in the clouds and feet in the sky And were vibrating with love and light Pulsating with love and light In a world gone mad, a world gone mad There must be something more than this Were vibrating with love and light Pulsating with love and light In a world gone mad, a world gone mad There must be something more than this Ohhhhh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Ohhhhh, oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh And were vibrating with love and light Pulsating with love and light In a world gone mad, a world gone mad There must be something more than this Were vibrating with love and light Pulsating with love and light In a world gone mad, a world gone mad There must be something more There must be something more than this Theres got to be something more than this There must be something more than this Theres got to be something more than this There must be something more than this Theres got to be something more than this There must be something more than this Theres got to be something more than this
When i jumped off i had a bucket full of thoughts When i first jumped off i held that bucket in my hand Ideas that would take me all around the world I stood and watched the smoke behind the mountain curl It took me a long time to get back on the train Now i’m gone and i’ll never look back again I’m gone and i’ll never look back at all You know i’ll never look back again I turn my face into the howling wind See my face in the town that’s flashing by See me standing in the station in the rain See me running there beside the car I left it all behind me and i’ve traveled far
And from atop the mountain, Icculus looked down on all that went on below him. And he smiled... I come from atop the mountain baby Where the people come to pray I come from atop the mountain baby Where the people come to pray There aint no truth in action Less you believe it anyway I was riding down the road one day and Someone hit a possum I was riding down the road one day and Someone hit a possum The road was his end His end was the road So they say Whoa possum... Possum, possum... Possum! Whoa possum... Possum, possum... POSSUM Whoa possum, possum Your end is the road I was riding down the road one day and Someone hit a possum I was riding down the road one day and Someone hit a possum The road was his end His end was the road So they say Whoa possum... Possum, possum... Possum! Whoa possum... Possum, possum... Possum! Whoa possum Your end is the road Whoa possum, possum Your end is the road
Oh, to be Prince Caspian afloat upon the waves Oh, to be Prince Caspian afloat upon the waves Oh, to be Prince Caspian afloat upon the waves Oh, to be Prince Caspian With nothing to return to but the demons in their caves Oh, to be Prince Caspian afloat upon the waves Oh, to be Prince Caspian afloat upon the waves Oh, to be Prince Caspian afloat upon the waves Oh, to be Prince Caspian And the children in the fields all sowing seed and chaffing wheat Oh, to be Prince Caspian with stumps instead of feet Oh, to be Prince Caspian Oh, to be Prince Caspian Oh, to be Prince Caspian
I feed from the bottom you feed from the top I live upon morsels you happen to drop And coffee that somehow leaks out of your cup If nothing comes down then I’m forced to swim up On the way upwards the colors come back But all on the bottom is blue, gray and black The darkness is cold and perception goes wrong And the night seems to go on incredibly long So I ask you why If I’m swimming by Don’t you see anything you’d like to try? Pantomime mixtures of heaven and earth Jumbled events that have less than no worth Time in the forest to dig under rocks Float in the ocean and sleep in a box Or sink just below all the churning and froth And swim to the light-source, or fly like a moth So toss away stuff you won’t need in the end But keep what’s important – and know who’s your friend So I ask you why If I’m swimming by Don’t you see anything you’d like to try? If Im swimming by From the bottom, from the top From the bottom, from the top...
Joy is over there in her incredible clothes She has silver silk shimmering down to her toes I was doing the best that I can I suppose But that little girl dancer eventually grows She grows You can’t imagine all the times that I tried To uncover the source of the tears that you cried Let’s throw it away and just go for a ride And you’d say ok but you’d keep it inside And I tried We want you to be happy Don’t live inside the gloom We want you to be happy Come step outside your room We want you to be happy Cause this is your song too I never thought I could have it so good You were the song that my soul understood But time is a river that flows through the woods And it led us to place we both understood Would be gone Before too long When we were young we thought life was a game But then somebody leaves you and you’re never the same All of the places and people belong To the puzzle but one of the pieces is gone And it’s you Joy, it’s you In time we’ll weather this storm Inside together you’ll see the change When the sun shines through We want you to be happy Don’t live inside the gloom We want you to be happy Come step outside your room We want you to be happy
I took a moment from my day Wrapped it up in things you say Mailed it off to your address You will get it soon unless The packaging begins to break And all the points i tried to make Tossed like thoughts into a bin As time leaks out, my life leaks in You won’t find moments in a box And someone else will set your clocks Took a moment from my day And wrapped it up in things you say And mailed it off to you
Oh Daniel saw the stone that was hewed out the mountain Daniel saw the stone that came rolling through Babylon Daniel saw the stone that was hewed out the mountain Coming down to redeem a mighty world Well, meet me, Jesus, meet me Meet me in the middle of the air Cause now if these wings should fail me Lord, I want to hitch on another pair Oh Jesus was the stone that was hewed out the mountain Jesus was the stone that came rolling through Babylon Jesus was the stone that was hewed out the mountain Coming down to redeem a mighty world Oh, well the tree it was bending Up in the heavenly land Well, my God spoke unto the Holy Ghost He said, Come on and lets make man Im looking for the stone that was hewed out the mountain Im looking for the stone that came rolling through Babylon Im looking for the stone that was hewed out the mountain Coming down to redeem a mighty world Well, now, early in the morning the trumpets gonna sound The dead and Christ is gonna rise Well, if you aint got good religion Lord, then hell youll open your eyes I found that stone that was hewed out the mountain I found the stone that came rolling through Babylon I found the stone that was hewed out the mountain Coming down to redeem a mighty world The main difference between this version and Phishs version is that Phish only uses the first verse cited here . The other verse that Trey sings is this: Well, I saw a weary traveler He was walking on down the road Well, I saw him later that evening He was walking on down that road
If you can heal the symptoms But not affect the cause It’s quite a bit like trying to heal A gunshot wound with gauze If you instead attempt to wrest The pistol from the hand Then i would not be able to Equate my life with sand Flowing through the hourglass Pushing through the funnel Turn once more while racing All your siblings for the tunnel Slide and let the silicone Embrace you as you fall Then bounce and land you let Your brothers crush you to the wall I would choose my own religion And worship my own spirit But if he ever preached to me I wouldn’t want to hear it I’d drop him, a forgotten god Languishing in shame And then if i hit stormy seas I’d have myself to blame
If time were only part of the equation Then you could draw the boundaries of our cage You wouldn’t pile another stone upon me And I’d be happy just to watch you age But everything is in its own dominion And waiting in the shallows as I do Appeases me as water slowly trickles out Which isn’t nearly fast enough for you It isn’t nearly fast enough for you Its what I was afraid of I stumble into view But it isn’t nearly fast enough for you It isn’t nearly fast enough for you
When you’re there, I sleep lengthwise And when you’re gone I sleep diagonal in my bed
Forbin and the Unit Monster were crouched over the soggy knight, carefully removing his bulky helmet, when the colonel heard a sound behind him. He turned around and came face to face with an enormous shaggy horse-like creature covered from head to tail with alternating blotches of brown and white. It was a two-toned multi-beast, and atop the multi-beast sat the most beautiful woman the colonel had ever seen. After fifty-two years of undaunted bachelorhood, the colonel felt a feeling rush over him that he had never felt before The sky is burning in this lonely land And I kneel by the river and I feel the sand and the wind The wind from beyond the mountain The wind from beyond the mountain And she comes to me in this lonely land And looks down from the multi-beast on which she rides like the wind The wind from beyond the mountain The wind from beyond the mountain Tela was born in a vulgar crooked hut In the shadow of Wilsons castle Venomous scorn from a life of bitter toil In the shadow of Wilsons castle Glory esteem fueled by her hatred it grew Swelling to the point where it would Burst at the seems there was nothing she could do Tela, Tela, jewel of Wilsons foul domain Tela, Tela, jewel of Wilsons foul domain A lullaby the breezes whisper And I look into her eyes and my frozen heart begins to thaw And burn, til layer after layer melts away into a pool A sky blue mirror of her eyes And my soul is made of marble but in her gaze I crumble into dust And drift away on the wind The wind from beyond the mountain The wind from beyond the mountain Tela grew strong from her struggle to endure In the shadow of Wilsons castle Time touched her wounds and shelter proved the cure In the shadow of Wilsons castle Each passing day seemed to feed the brazen serpent locked inside And liberate the spirit shed concealed for so long There was no place left to hide Tela, Tela, jewel of Wilsons foul domain Tela, Tela, jewel of Wilsons foul domain A lullaby the breezes whisper
Dry mouth, push it out, I can hear my heart pound, a hero’s what I’m not Voices scream, flashes flare, frozen as the people stare, my crucifixion shot Friends were electric on the western side while triangles were shifting on the floor Squeezing out the breath that I don’t have, they’re quiet now, they only want two more And you step to the line And you step to the line Every shot I’ve taken has led me to this moment since I was four feet high Big D is watching, I remember what he taught me, don’t let him see you cry And you step to the line And you step to the line Try to see your future from the line And you’re clinging to the notion you’ll be fine But the circle’s getting smaller all the time Try to see your future from the line And you’re clinging to the notion you’ll be fine But the circle’s getting smaller all the time Dry mouth, push it out, I can hear my heart pound, a hero’s what I’m not Voices scream, flashes flare, frozen as the people stare, my Crucifixion shot And you step to the line And you step to the line Try to see your future from the line And youre clinging to the notion you’ll be fine But the circle’s getting smaller all the time Try to see your future from the line And you’re clinging to the notion you’ll be fine But the circle’s getting smaller all the time Try to see your future from the line And you’re clinging to the notion you’ll be fine But the circle’s getting smaller all the time Try to see your future from the line And youre clinging to the notion you’ll be fine But the circle’s getting smaller...
The Squirming Coil of sunset I keep within my reach Tried yesterday to get away And hitchhiked to the beach I saw Satan on the beach Trying to catch a ray He wasnt quite the speed of light And the squirming coil It got away.... The muscles flex the mothers ring She fastens children to her king And sends him down the crooked street When he returns, the births complete Jimmy holds the Tannis root The forests tasty nectar shoot The sun tips off the monarchs suit From sequined sash to shiny boot Id like to lick the coil some day Like Icarus, who had to pay With melting wax and feathers brown He tasted it on his way down Stun the puppy! Burn the whale! Bark a scruff and go to jail! Forge the coin and lick the stamp! Little Jimmys off to camp
Trapped in time and I don’t know what to do These friends of mine, I can see right through You don’t gotta tell me that I don’t gotta move ‘Cause I’m just sittin’ back here sharing in the groove Me no are no nice guy I walk through the hallways inside my mind I chase the backbeat falling behind Big dude in the doorway blocking my way He reached and grabbed me and this is what he said: Me no are no nice guy
Theres a mouse starin out of the window His colonys trapped in the snow Hes planning a family vacation But he just cant go Around the next corners a red bird His feathers are trapped in a sling Hes passed by some mudslinging parrot Whos jealously aint got no end There aint no time to stash the gumbo Or rattle around in a cage The sacrificed childs made bubbles And spittle is everywhere enraged In the hot sand I land on my feet They blister and cake with debris Chez rolez is guarding the toll port While Angry piddles with glee Theres a fool writing notes out on sandpaper Hes sending them off to himself He gets them a couple days later Who put them along his top shelf If you get tired of shavings And carve up a good hunk of wood Remembering to check on the sausage Hes got cooking somewhere look good
I went down to the guitar store and I bought myself some things Then I went home to fix this guitar to see if it could sing When I got done I plugged it in but it made no sound at all So I was gettin pretty pissed and I plugged it into the wall Guess its not a singing type it would rather yell and spit If you dont think you like this guitar, youre really askin for shit Cause when I get mad, I get red, and then I start to steam And this guitar is gonna fuck your face cause it knows how to scream Hi, Im Bill. I was the one who did the cover art for the Stones Sucking in The 70s LP
They call me the sloth Way down in the ghetto Italian spaghetti Singing falsetto Sleeping all day Rip Van Winklin Spend my nights in bars Glasses tinklin Im so bad Hes so nasty Aint got no friends Real outcasty Stay out of my way Or youll end up a cripple Ill take this piece of paper And slice you in the nipple They call me the sloth Way down in the ghetto Italian spaghetti Singing falsetto Sleeping all day Rip Van Winklin Spend my nights in bars Glasses tinklin
An asteroid crashed and nothing burned It made me wonder: Do tigers sleep in lily patches? Do rhinos run from thunder? I got an ache in my left ear I felt the truth but I still could hear Made me think I would not be burned But rather give myself to science I felt that I could help To science, I felt that I could help Paranoid the doctor ran Shouting his graphic translation A fortnight of turmoil Gang wars and ails of riches Spewing forth their color He purposely waited till I was done To knock on the lavatory door Accusing me of ruining the fun He knocked on it some more The fun, he knocked on it some more Alloyed suitors drawn inside An apple or a grape To put forth a cloud of mercury He was run over by a car On a freeway in Los Angeles Once the spraying has been done Cause theres more pain from necessity Youre a portrait of your past Theres a mummy in the cabinet Are there no more arrows left? Whats that rubber bottle doing here? Hows that napkin for a roof? Ten cents to a dollar now For a shelf of pregnant hens Robert Palmer is a plorb And gams, and gams, and gams Are so stupendous, living in this tube So stupendous living in this tube So stupendous living in this tube
Woke up this morning And I had those walkin blues Woke up this morning And I had those walkin blues I wasnt walkin nowhere, cause I didnt have no legs! Well Im alright Im alright Im alright Im alright Im alright Im alright Im alright Im alright Im alright now Cause I got a degree! Yesterday morning My old lady threw me out into the cold, cold street Yesterday morning My old lady, she threw me out into the cold, cold street I had no hat on my head and no shoes on my head!

The overhead view is of me in a maze And you see what I’m hunting a few steps away And I take a wrong turn and I’m on the wrong path And the people all watching enjoy a good laugh Embarrassed with failure, I try to reverse The course that my tread had already traversed So doing the trauma engulfing my dream Invaded through what was an unguarded seam The torrent of helplessness swept me away To the cavern of shame and the hall of dismay Inside me a voice was repeating this phrase: You’ve lost it, you’ll never get out of this maze You’ll never get out of this maze
It’s easy sometimes when you just coast along But like it or not something always seems to go wrong Sometimes people build you up just so they can knock you down Sometimes they will have you there ’cause they need someone around Perhaps you’ll receive invitations for tea Or perhaps you will laugh and you will make them all smile Or maybe you’ll join them ’cause it had to be Perhaps you’ll forget you forgot for a while Birds of a feather are flocking outside Like whippets they dance in a curly-queue dance Of pulses and ringing and campfire chants Of ritual drumming although at first glance You thought you could run but you won’t take a chance It’s not an experience if they can’t bring someone along They hang on emotions they bottle inside They peck at the ground And they strut out of stride
Danger I’ve been told to expect it I begin my descent Down the cold granite steps And who could have turned among those I confide in? I think that I know what I haven’t known yet ‘Cause a week is a month And an hour a day When your reaching just pushes it further away With your past and your future precisely divided Am I at that moment? I haven’t decided And stretching out into the sea… Aquitana Is that what the prophet told me he saw? You gave it to me but I really don’t want it I came out on top by the luck of the draw ‘Cause a week is a month and an hour a day When your reaching just pushes it further away And what’s the return on the faith I’ve provided? I think that I know now but I haven’t decided
Swinging on the lifeline Fraying bits of twine Entangled in the remnants of the Knot I left behind And asking you to help me make it Finally unwind But God never listens to what I say God never listens to what I say So very, so very hard And you don’t get a refund if you overpray And when the line is breaking And when I’m near the end When all the time spent leading Ive been following instead When all my thoughts and memories Are left hanging by a thread But God never listens to what I say God never listens to what I say So very, so very hard And you don’t get a refund if you overpray Stranded on this slender string Minute seems to last a lifetime Dangling here between the light above And blue below that drags me down But God never listens to what I say God never listens to what I say So very, so very hard And you wont get a refund God never listens to what I say God never listens to what I say So very, so very hard And you wont get a refund if you overpray God never listens to what I say God never listens to what I say God never listens to what I say God never listens to what I say
In the mornin I pack up my gear And toss it in my carryall Run the wide load to lip an Watch the big core crack an glow In the evening I undo my belt Split open and melt I wake up on my stomach With my face between my hands And crawl along the floor Towards the doorway Jumpin to my feet I try to pull myself together But I feel it in my knees And the room begins to spin And I slip and bump my head An raise a welt Split open and melt We breathe deep in a steam dream And plunge below the water line Down down down melt Between beams to the gloom room Among the seaweed and the slime Down down down melt
Appendages flailing, youre running at me Ferocious, tenaciously clawing at me The devious gelatin holding me fast Miraculous now you let me move past Over the wall rushing rivers of sleaze The tip of stalactites incising my knees A slipper, a sand dollar day at the shore Nice evening at home that I dread even more Would you please Make clear to me Im peering out through your opacity Though you rehearse Tomorrows verse Forgive me if I dont sing in your key Look back on those days when my life was a haze The gelatin lay on a truncated sleigh Copernicus drank from a vessel that stank From the Freemasons crank to the overflow tank Bane of the weasel, for biding is fun Jump on the turnstile and watch me go round Swim with the cactus and float with the stone I try to convey what you strive to condone Would you please Make clear to me Im peering out through your opacity Though you rehearse Tomorrows verse Forgive me if I dont sing in your key Would you please Make clear to me Why nothing is the first thing that I see And if you do And I see you Then you will be the nothing left for me
When youre lost in the darkness And the loneliness cuts so deep When every breath is suffering And youre longing for sleep You dont have to be alone Ive still got a kind word to spare Ive still have an ear to listen Ive got time Ill wait with you till the tide turns Ill wait with you till the tide turns Ill wait with you till the tide turns Tide turns When the wolf is at your door And the mirror holds your nightmare Theres no need to hide your tears If its too much for you to bear You dont have to be alone I will always be there for you Together we can make it through Weve got time, yes we do Ill wait with you till the tide turns Ill wait with you till the tide turns Im gonna wait with you till the tide turns Till the tide turns You dont have to be alone I will always be here for you Together we can make it through Weve got time, yes we do Ill wait with you till the tide turns Ill wait with you till the tide turns Wait with you till the tide turns Till the tide turns You know, you know Im gonna wait with you Im gonna wait with you

The pressure builds, you buy a gift You’re hoping that your dread will lift It glitters on her like a glass You shudder as it comes to pass Apologize to Luce and Lil’ Converse with Ed, a drive with Jill Your friends confine you in their worlds One by one, a string of pearls Confuse you say, this isn’t me You hover in their unity Ashamed, you slowly lose your grasp Release the links, undo the clasp The skin that drips down from the tree And peels back slowly from your knee Erupts into your lung and heart You laugh and laughing, fall apart Laugh and laughing, fall apart
I feel I’ve never told you The story of the ghost That i once knew and talked to Of whom i’d never boast But this was my big secret How i get ahead And never have to worry I’d call him instead His answer came in actions He never spoke a word Or maybe i lay down the phone Before he could be heard I somehow feel forsaken Like he had closed the door I guess i just stopped needing him As much as once before But maybe he’s still with me The latch was left unhooked He’s waiting in the wind and rain I simply haven’t looked

Hey, Makisupa policeman Policeman came to my house Hey, Makisupa policeman Policeman came to my house Woke up this morning Smoke a little herb Smoke a little ... Schwag! Gooballs!
Woke up on the wrong side Atrophied throughout Dreamt with open eyes I was vacuuming about In a straight line A very straight line Each new morning I awake With clouds around my bed Gut the walls and pipes Then vacuum out my head In a straight mind A very straight mind Ooh, vacu-uming Waking up dead Ooh, vacu-uming Waking up dead In the kitchen stands a man In a backlit halo glow Wears a darkened smile Is there something I should know? Something all consuming All consuming Ooh, vacu-uming Waking up dead From above, vacu-uming Waking up dead I feel the suction rev As I waltz the vacuum arm End to end it sucks itself And pulls me with its charm Morning in a vortex Noon I squint my eyes You peak inside my empty shell A memory in disguise The tree outside is upside down My head hangs off the bed They say I’m just a pair of lungs Connected by a thread I’m presuming, the end is looming In trouble when I put my foot down And try to have a voice In trouble when I kindly back down And let you have your choice My soul was sucked out in the ether Just about half past nine My carcass went out drinkin’ At closing time
If you’re just staring at your walls Observing echoing footfalls From tenants wandering distant halls Than this one is for you If children playing all around To you is noise not pleasant sound And you’d be lost on the playground Then this one is for you All alone the life you lead A silent diner where you feed You bow your head pretend to read This one if for you Slip past strangers in the street There’s no one that you care to meet Longing for your TV seat This one is for you

How to use

How to load this dataset directly with the datasets library:

from datasets import load_dataset

dataset = load_dataset("huggingartists/phish")

Dataset Structure

An example of 'train' looks as follows.

This example was too long and was cropped:

{
    "text": "Look, I was gonna go easy on you\nNot to hurt your feelings\nBut I'm only going to get this one chance\nSomething's wrong, I can feel it..."
}

Data Fields

The data fields are the same among all splits.

  • text: a string feature.

Data Splits

train validation test
394 - -

'Train' can be easily divided into 'train' & 'validation' & 'test' with few lines of code:

from datasets import load_dataset, Dataset, DatasetDict
import numpy as np

datasets = load_dataset("huggingartists/phish")

train_percentage = 0.9
validation_percentage = 0.07
test_percentage = 0.03

train, validation, test = np.split(datasets['train']['text'], [int(len(datasets['train']['text'])*train_percentage), int(len(datasets['train']['text'])*(train_percentage + validation_percentage))])

datasets = DatasetDict(
    {
        'train': Dataset.from_dict({'text': list(train)}),
        'validation': Dataset.from_dict({'text': list(validation)}),
        'test': Dataset.from_dict({'text': list(test)})
    }
)
