who’s to say precisely what was shouted the kid was hit in the face with a smiley shake all the rats that rummage through the garbage do we look just the same from the ships in outer space a bird in the hand like a rose that had grown from the shit in the garden oh it’s just as well who’s to blame there is water and glass on the living room carpet salt water fish and Christmas lights lights lights lights what a strange little party a tray of cocaine inside the water closet understand it but only if you want to scrawled across the floor small talk beneath a paper lantern debasing this place just feels right right right right what a strange little party though it’s late it’s just getting started a unitarian party a tray of cocaine inside the water closet words by: M. Kong

i fell asleep again i hate driving cars…anymore and when it’s time to go dark water swallow me whole and there’s the Drake Hotel pink light so high…cut me down and once around the bend you looked much older, than before sitting at the bar my hands looked blue those old tapestries don’t make sense to me, how ‘bout you? a wraith at the World’s Fair translucent white…cut me down it all seemed so bright the night sky, swallowed them whole suddenly it’s so loud it shook our feet from the ground parents must be so proud you took the easy way out what’s wrong? what’s wrong? what’s wrong? what’s wrong? took the easy way out. words by: M. Kong

who you know 03:15
a posed picture, there’s no laughing a soft landing, from your daddy it’s not right it’s not art it’s all who you know, tonight feed it money, ’til it grows your friend circles, i don’t know it’s not right it’s not art it’s all who you know, tonight the ocean tide, pulls me under a mountain crest, soars above me what a shame, all that wonder a partial thought, the dead among us the ocean tide, pulls me under a mountain crest, soars above me words by: M. Kong
