1.
38 Cinder 04:30
Signal free walk on water. Dressed on the mistletoe. Tracks wind and win dreams. Wax wins I surrender. Turn precision run bay coated for tank fixtures. Princess wheels arise. Wax wins we surrender.
2.
Formula 109 02:35
Wipe out all crimes with formula 109. Your deception does not jive.

Autopilot 04:33

Midori 04:21
To keep it in mind. Don’t ask questions. When playing on it’s time to pass it around now. Hours are a minute to a one stop token. Smiles come from bread. Hook line and sinker tell me again. Look too closely eat the cake. Step too softly eat the cake. So much caution to eat the cake. Sit and waiting the cake is fake.
5.
Riverside 03:16
Down by the water I plant my seeds. They continue to grow until I can’t forgive. Far away I can dream but far can get too close. Surrounded by silence this brings me under. Have you ever been hurt? A path made of stones can be rearranged by children running down to the water.
6.
Soothe 02:25
Do you like what I'm doing? Sending out seeds of cherry. So simple minds can pick my achievements. Walls are safe so sleep within. This is all I have for you. Home.
7.
Thermos 04:08
Fresh grass stained yellow. Blue skies burning gray. Cracked hands that paved the waves. Keep in spin. Whirlwinds. Terrified. Make this fine. Stained by the wind so skip crucified. Unfold the pages. Horns told bang bang a satisfied fever. Kiss it goodbye.
8.
Sheephurter 02:50
Saturn fly infection. Cremated in stacks. Force fed by insanity. Reaping reality. Clear and crystalized. It's safe to say “Hi-Yo” to Silver. It's all right to witness forgiveness. It's always a sun bright heart that's bleeding. So give me the mints.
9.
They're riding on in. Motor scooters. Where it’s slim. Double shooter. Blast off stand by. Ride it in where it’s slim. It's blast off stand by. You're comatose.
10.
Drink bath water faucet on flames. Tweed hats on frogs dancing. Cotton cane's coating soapy taste. Take one they are all the same. There's only two left right by the sink. Go get what's coming. Fire tongue bouncing checks. Don't worry honey my birthday's three years past. Burning stomach lint lines my pocket. Drink bath water it's all I got.
11.
Daddy-O smoking cigars. Sitting pretty big cat. Pushing polished buttons missing from my jacket. Information. For your information their shields shall crumble. Secret information to expose the conspiracy. Candles burn soothe clear. Wearing sweet is sixteen cellophane. Defenseless. Helpless. It's all senseless. Dead beat strategy.
12.
Lambchop! You wrap it up. Then you send it out. It’s dynamite! Hidden surprises. You wrap it up. So good good pretty yeah. Send it out. You send it so pretty. It looks so nice. It’s got a secret surprise. Dynamite! Race car running empty.
13.
Insightful bliss. Terminated by misfortunes of lucky seven. They just told me a secret and I wasn't supposed to tell you. Nevada sunset set setting. Dancing on the moon. And they told me not to tell but I just told you.
14.
Soothe 02:08
Do you like what I'm doing? Sending out seeds of cherry. So simple minds can pick my achievements. Walls are safe so sleep within. Is distance to be shared with blue? Home.
15.
Sending sprinkles good boy. Malto respondo whistle. Turn in overturn. Resume apple pie. Wait push the corner. You push it over the edge. Ante eagle bathes. Focus goon locomotive. Slipping on coldcrete. Screaming. Dripping past tone treats. Toot toot.
16.
Cold brick staples. Leaping over chimneys. Tying up more kibbles. Branding phone call pictures. The pretty ladies coat the meadow. Warm pillows sweat the breath and it goes boom. They go boom. Kittens heat the babies. Drowning in their sorrow. Fluffy soft white. Boom like it leaves us.
17.
Snowsuit 03:13
Keep one eye open. Breathe in deeply please. Drop some dime in the sun. Unscrambled messages splattered on the wall. Stiffly. Lovely.
18.
Flognoth 03:47
It's needed to know the pages become one. Soaked to blame who's upon it. Some to understand to come from with. Perceived. Deceived. Stay for sinking flushed face pail weight. Too late to wait away. Flognoth and gone.
19.
Two pieces unfold. Pockets can be undone without thread. Bring on the new swing king. Could be what will be. Selfish. One line breath soon turn on gone. King will swing.
20.
Snowflake 02:05
Where it's been above no sky. Sometimes it falls at Christmas time. Snowmen come and snowmen go. Let's go out and play in the snow. Springtime the snowflakes go away. No more fun winter play. Sinckering whiskers. Rosy cheeks. Boots and socks warming my fee. No sight of precious white. No sleigh bells ringing tonight. Snowflakes are coming out now.
21.
Blank 03:15
You are hungry. Consume your rations. Grab a mouthful. Satiation. You never ask questions. Expressionless. Exceptions take no stand. Words fall short. Confessions that will not give. Destinations.
