Track Name: Running In Place
plastic and glass, metal and minerals
keep us moving without experience
running in place is a new direction
seasons turn with the television

third world mannequins
hope to give between their limbs
birth to a dollar bill
close your eyes and raise your hands
we're hiking up the stakes again
where we gonna go from here?

pushing some buttons, pulling strings and
digging up holes, we rinse and repeat then
level out the playing field, reinvent the wheel until
we lick our thumbs for jungle crumbs
and the birds chirp from speakers

third world mannequins
hope to give between their limbs
birth to a dollar bill
close your eyes and raise your hands
we're hiking up the stakes again
where we gonna go from here?

strip mines! power lines and phone calls!
windfalls! fortunes flipping!
we're running in place

mayday! new lane on the freeway opens!
the weather's broken!
we're running in place
we're running in place
Track Name: King New
the streets are starting
to wear each other's clothes
the glitter-studded puke of boredom
and too much tomorrow
humor is heaven
so I'm nailing smiles to the ceiling
I am King New, I am King New
and this is mine all mine

I think I'm beginning to look like myself
I think you're beginning to lean into the likeness

I am King New/ of future fossils
I spit my picture/ I eat your muscles
I am New York/ I'm a punch dream
fake blood and popcorn/ ice cream and gaso-
lean into the likeness/ I am LA
I'm a DJ/ I'm a laureate
just south of Shanghai/ I puked a Paris
lean into the likeness/ I'm a halogen nightmare
I am sterile/ I'm innocuous
I'm the bank lobby/ I'm the doctors office
I'm an alarm/ I'm a lullaby
I'm a Dubai skyscraper/ eating the stars
I skitter across the surface/ like a Jesus lizard
my name is King New/ I spit my picture, picture

the facts are fat
and all the feelings are gone
Track Name: Dancing Is Evil
dancing is evil
blind hands grasp for better weather
til guns and butter
are just for fun, brother
you see a fire
and let the wind provoke the water
it's junk and jewels
too much to even bother

dancing is evil
invisible hands raise fists and whispers
they gave you a tourniquet
the parade of possibilities helps you to forget
who set the fire
and let the wind provoke the water
it's junk and jewels
too much to even bother

dancing is evil
they told you in a wilting building
they gave you a belly rub
this embarrassment of riches was bound to freeze you up
you see a fire
and let the wind provoke the water
it's junk and jewels
too much to even bother

decision engines want you to know
that dancing is evil
invisible hands want you to know
that dancing is evil
but we're clouds in the flesh
and clouds never make mistakes
we're clouds in the flesh
and clouds never make mistakes
we take all the right shapes
never make mistakes
take all the right shapes
Track Name: Sugar And Helium
I tugged, I tugged,
I tugged and tugged at a thread
the color of nothing
I'm trading stitches for excuses
in the name of sugar and helium

I am, I am,
I am a silkworm spinning silk
from the belly of a tear
I'm sifting words to call a witness
it is all for sugar and helium

good ghosts go straight through brick walls
I'll be a good ghost

I see, I see,
I see something up ahead
pull the sighs from my fingertips
take me beyond red and violet
by the hand of sugar and helium

good ghosts go straight through brick walls
I'll be a good ghost
for sugar and helium
(by the hand)
