Track Name: Superpowers
My name is midnight, my name is cold bones and whispers.
My name is night-thoughts, call me the color kisser.
My eyes are streetlights, shadows, mosaic mirrors.
My mind of wet-winds, spitting shiny terrors.

Doo doo doo, you know it’s how I roll…
Superpowers in small hours, you know it’s how I roll...

Next to crumpled cardboard, a patch of alley flowers.
The limping legs that, measure city blocks into hours.
Smoking circles round bus stop pageant contestants,
A bag of brain-juice, to help create and imagine.

Doo doo doo, you know it’s how I roll…
Superpowers in small hours, you know it’s how I roll...

In subway echoes and Broadway battles,
that make the doors slam and windows rattle.
Superpowers in the smallest hours,
reciting rainstorms from the dollhouse tower.

Doo doo doo, you know it’s how I roll…
Superpowers in small hours, you know it’s how I roll...
Track Name: Fluorescent Dreams
And a volley echoes across
Cavern ballrooms, spirals of stone
Chandeliers to light the lost sea
Strolling under stars of unknowns

Darling of the dazzling words
Parading through the seasons of snow
Black-light blossoms in the dollhouse
My lite-brite angel and my black rose

And the days, turn to dusk, turn to dawn
Echoing, glowing gusts, of fire songs
Windy woods, and we’ll just, sing along.

Torching beauty, spark of blue eyes
That silhouettes the shadows we’ve spun
Silver lockets, twist of black curls
Humming prayers of hallelujah

Idol rising into the sky
Snow storm lover, you gotta run
Got poetry and passion inside
Rock queen of the charts #1

And the days, turn to dusk, turn to dawn
Echoing, glowing gusts, of fire songs
Windy world, and we’ll just, sing along.

I didn’t know what to expect
But I was pleasantly surprised by the results
It all comes down to one word…

Fluorescent dreams tonight
A poem of sparkling white
Fluorescent dreams ablaze
My idols glowing gaze
Track Name: Heart Attacks
I thought you were on to something,
You were just off on something.
If you’re lost at sea, sink.
If you’re lost at land, think.

You can never fight back,
Hide when the heart attacks,
You better sink in a bath,
With a rubber giraffe.
Even though he don’t quack,
You know he sticks to the facts
Can’t keep the Jills from the Jacks,
Hide when the heart attacks.

Now Ms. Mona Lisa,
Is a teacher,
Cracks and crooks are lurking,
But she’s always smirking.

You can never fight back,
Hide when the heart attacks,
You better sink in a bath,
With a rubber giraffe.
Even though he don’t quack,
You know he sticks to the facts
Can’t keep the Jills from the Jacks,
Hide when the heart attacks.

Hide when the heart attacks…
You can never fight back…
Keep an eye on the back…
Can’t keep the Jills from the Jacks
Hide when the heart attacks…
Track Name: Rainy Room
Balance schmalence
I’ll take a dream over a date
Maybe that’s wrong
Will I regret it once it’s too late

One way mirror,
Don’t see my sitting back in the dark
Reflecting comfort,
Cleaned up emotions I don’t want to start…

Rainy room
In the Rose City
Candles blow and breathe
The words and dancing leaves

Rainy Room
In the Rose City
Make the most of the
Time you loaned to me

Clown emotions
I’ll take a dream over a date
It was all too much
Now I’m watching my steps and I’m watching my weight

Gentle Giant
Clumsy in crushes of the heart
Damn this weather
Too wet to burn, but plenty of spark

Rainy room…
Track Name: Here It Comes Again
We’re all the same, trying to stay out of the rain.
We’ve all spent time, looking for people we can’t find.

Here it comes again, here it comes again…
Here it comes again, here it comes again…

I don’t want to hurt nobody,
I just like people who think I’m funny,
And I know that I shouldn’t sweat ya,
Or the good times we had before this stormy weather hit.

Why must it be? Stuck in a swamp in the city…
I guess we’ll see, if we chop down these forests for their trees.
You must admit, when you first arrived you were a hit.
We’d seen the light, so sometimes we killed it for the night?

Here it comes again, here it comes again…
Here it comes again, here it comes again…

I don’t want to hurt nobody,
I just like people who think I’m funny, ha ha!
And I know that I shouldn’t sweat ya,
Or the good times we had before this stormy weather hit.

Don’t worry bout me, I’m doing fine…
Ya coulda called to see, but maybe we both just lost our… minds
Mind, I will mind my own business, my own business
Cuz now I know… I guess…
I guess I just woulda hated to miss ya…

Track Name: Tio Flamingo
Remember when we
were jamming with Jennie
A thousand songs…
all night long.

Chartreuse in Rio
con Tio Flamingo
The Voodoo Chile
who crossed the Nile
in Boston style…

We’re South American
when winter is in the wind
strumming green guitars
under Santiago stars.

So the puzzles of the pyramids still loom…
But the black and golden Bees buzz all your tunes.

Drink and be merry.
Vodka Cranberry.
Jerusalem…
Just another stop for him…

We’re Super Mexican
when winter is in the wind
strumming green guitars
under Mexicano stars.

So the puzzles of the pyramids still loom…
But the black and golden Bees buzz all your tunes.

Tio Flamingo…

We’re South American
when winter is in the wind
strumming green guitars
under Santiago stars.

So the puzzles of the pyramids still loom…
But the black and golden bees buzz all your tunes.
So the legendary trickster made his escape.
I’ll meet you on the next world, don’t be late.

Tio Flamingo!!!
Track Name: A Tree of Night
Scrubbing stains on my jeans
Diamonds dropped in the sink
Rusty playground, old steel
Blue tron, barbed wire, cold feel

A stranger in a stranger’s land
Smoky signals of Stone Age man
A tree of night, trains, and rains
Severed safety

Blue fist, red inch, old wish
Ginger Gypsies spit sparks
Mouth of madness, missed marks
Trashy trees of night arts

A stranger in a stranger’s land
Smoky signals of Stone Age man
A tree of night, trains, and rains
Severed safety
Track Name: Black Ocean
We sat there staring at the Sea of Tranquility. I thought I saw a sailor signal. But it was just another a song from the bottom of the deep blue sea.

Sleeping every sunrise,
I’ll be singing every sunset.
Sighing under sapphire skies,
Fireflies out to the west.

A hazy dusk moon hovers Of all the stars of summer,
Girl you won’t find another,
Girl, a paradise for lovers

And then I whispered to the waves…

Girl you got such pretty eyes You buried treasure in my chest Now we’re sighing under sapphire skies Ruby lips citrus kiss

Dancing under campfire moons Share a smoke with my friends Humming a Brazilian tune A turquoise tide is crashing in

Girl, a hazy dusk moon hovers Girl, of all the stars of summer,
Girl you won’t find another,
Girl, a paradise for lovers

Pink petals on a green lagoon,
Rainbow showers are blowing in
She’s using orange peels for perfume,
I’m as gullible as Gilligan

Sleeping under sapphire moons,
Sea sparkles like an amethyst
Island in the evening croons,
Black ocean and a salty kiss
