Track Name: When Autumn Blooms
When autumn blooms
A fragile light hangs in mid-air.
Crisp sweet smells beckon you
To an afternoon long and rare.
Bathed in red and gold
Our breath lays bare our desire.
Hands warm hands, socks warm feet
As the pale sun retires.
How dear to spend a green night
Looking out and above.
How strange to feel unguarded
As the stars stare back at us.
Only sallow leaves on a black wet ground,
Caught in a draft and gentle gyre
As the world spins round.
Track Name: I Never Knew
A life so sweet I never knew
Until truth be told I fell in love with you
Crickets sing to stars above
And now I know just what they’re singing of
This night, this kiss, this everything
Nothing will ever ever be the same
Oh yes my love! I never knew!
And I’ll never never find another you!

The winds caress the willow leaves
And softly softly lull the tree to sleep
And gentle stirs the stream below
A peacefulness few ever ever know
But what tenderness there is to find
When you softly press your lips to mine
Oh yes my love! I never knew!
And I’ll never never find another you!
Track Name: Bertrand Hustle
If your socks don’t fit so tight
When you shake your feet each night
Then step up, listen, ‘cause I’ve got the dance for you
Suppose you’re dancing any style
One-step, two-step, sweet or wild,
Except for the dance that’s the dance you’re gonna do
That is how you Betrand Hustle
A paradox of Mr. Russell
It takes brains more than it takes muscle
So knock that bee right out your bustle
If you want to impress your date
And you’ve heard what I relate
Then do the dance that’s the dance no one can do

Other dances all exist
But logic never gets you kissed
So forget everything that’s a thing you thought you knew
Think of any dance you like
With a partner, with a bike
And do anything but the dance you’re gonna do
That is how you Betrand Hustle
A paradox of Mr. Russell
It takes brains more than it takes muscle
So knock that bee right out your bustle
When your proofs are yielding doubt
And you find your cheeks a-pout
Just do the dance that’s the dance no one can do
Track Name: Medea
A long long time before you were even here
Before your ancestors landed on these shores
The whole world suffocated on something in the air
But it overtook them so slowly they kept on making more
There were green things and brown things growing endlessly
Spilling out their toxins into air and into sea
Every word I’m telling you is true
So please believe me when I say that all of this created you

You can’t divide everything without leaving a remainder
You can’t boil cabbage without splitting a few heads
There’s just so much that you can wrap around your brain, dear
So few hours we aren’t asleep inside our beds
If you’re not part of the solution, you’re the precipitate
Even if you swear to change, the hour’s growing late
Every word I’m telling you is true
So please believe me when I say that this applies you

In ancient Greece they told a tale of a man with a golden fleece
He had a wife and kids but decided to trade them in
The first wife she wept and wailed and couldn’t find no peace
For revenge she took her kids aside and did them in
The people speak in horror of this woman going mad
But deep inside each one of us is a Medea who’s been had
Every word I’m telling you is true
So believe me when I say that this could happen to you
Track Name: I Don't Roll Like That
If you wanna settle down like the butterfly and the bee
Then you gotta make those plans without bumblin’ me
If you want a picket fence and a garden out back
Then you gotta understand I don’t roll like that

The sun’s out shining bright and there’s a gentle wind
The song of the bird’s calling out to who cares that it’s spring again
If you insist on spoiling the hour and having this chat
Then I gotta make it clear that I don’t roll like that

I can’t stand staying still, I can’t bear cloudy days
If all roads lead to Rome, I’ll make it on the way
I ain’t promised you a thing, don’t let me hear you say
On a day, on a day, on a day like today

Pretty young couple steppin’ outta the church just fit to burst
If you see me wearing them shoes then prepare to be hurt
If you want to have, hold, love and depend then get a cat
Cuz you gotta understand I don’t roll like that
Track Name: Neptune and Pluto
Listen to the clash of titans
In the spray upon the cliffs
Hear the alabaster crashing
Watch the porcelain set adrift
Oh, the order of tranquilities
Beyond the realm of possibilities
You know that the opposing thumbs
Of the Earth might be dumb
But they’ll argue
‘Til arguing’s through

One and one is two undeniably
But you wouldn’t disagree
When two is split most violently
One may never get to three
Oh, the order of sequentiality
Not among our specialities
You know that the opposite tides
Of debate can’t subside
So they’ll protest
‘Til all are at rest
