Track Name: Golden Birthday Cake
The golden eyed children play for a slice of golden birthday cake
watch the children play

Their mothers smile as they watch keep watch as their mothers smile
for their golden child

They say they have their father's eyes their eyes as their fathers say
the color of their name

There's a tower in the sky
forty thousand stories high
your father's story book archive
your father's tower in the sky

There's a flower on the vine
deep beneath the treetop line
your mother's source of milk and wine
your mother's flower on the vine

The golden eyed children play for a slice of golden birthday cake
watch the children play
the golden eyed children play for a slice of golden birthday cake
Track Name: Away From Me
The blue of the
ocean on the map
smiles at me
the color of
the actual sky
lies to me
I can see
the ship you send
away from me
on the waves
washing to the end
of the edge
Track Name: Trading Cards
You gave me trading cards
of my favorite celebrities
faces of movie stars
from all the latest magazines

I traded them away
to the paparazzi
I traded them away
to the paparazzi

they published everything
everything you gave to me

the photograph
taped onto the retail glass
the employee of the day
the paragraph
tried to type into the fax
to tell you what I say
the laughing gas
laughing at the tear-gas mask
you wear upon your face
Track Name: Piece of the Paper
So many men, flattened like a desk
where soft saw-dust sets
over dented metal legs
under hard level heads

So many hours, stacked like the eggs
to be harvested
by the farmers from the hens
under surveillance

and the drawers shut tight
to hold in all the paper
and the chickens always fight
for a piece of the paper
for a piece of the paper

they cannot take any brand new high pitched sounds
they begin to tune the whole world out
they cannot take any brand new high pitched sounds
they begin to tune the whole world out
they begin to tune the whole world out

the average statistician
averages out
to the sum and the difference
of his averages
