Track Name: The Bug
as for person a, there's nothing to do but go far away
the bug's in your brain, the bug's in the water
it's something to chase as fast as you can, stone floors in japan
as for person b, he's got it easy, he's built like a brick
he's strong as a prayer, he lives off the land
he's keeping the peace with butter and jam

when the bug lands, you take off your shoes
a stick through the mirror, your clothes in a sack
you say i am here, and this will be home as soon as we go
farther away

you're shining like a rocket, you're shaking like a leaf
you're shining top to bottom you're shining underneath
you're shining like a rocket, you're shaking ilke a leaf
you're shaking top to bottom, you're shining underneath

i know i'm saying i'm a dog, but i'm a kitten just playing
Track Name: All The Ama
pluck a spoke from a hole
watch how far it can roll
stack a rock on a stone
on a rock on a stone

all the 'ama'ama come-ahh

sitting how you sit the best
sitting pretty in this mess
Track Name: Modern Man
lose your steps for laughs
save a rock for luck
then when you get stuck sling a shot
in order to be tough

don't be soft like the hands of the modern man

string the ducks along
lose your taste for charms
then when things go wrong make a joke
in order to be strong

start at 2 for 5
end at 5 for 2
then when you arrive ring the bell
'cause that's what grown boys do

luxuriate in your own loneliness
Track Name: Digital Bee
a gentle hand, an iron seed
an iron man's digital bee
a bedside manner that's a sight to see
a life lived twice is a better hammer

an iron hand, a silver sleeve
an iron man's digital plant
a seaside manor that's the thing to have
a life lived twice is a better hammer

he's got a gentle hand, he's got an iron seed
he's such a gentle man, he's such a gentle man

if the wind could only do the heavy lifting for two
could only separate the honey and stingers
Track Name: Robbery
when you hit the ground your bones will keep on tumbling
your pockets flipped around until you get back on your feet
and you will float across the prairie grass at lightning speed
and you will memorize the numbers that you see

before you hit the ground the stones will soften into leaves
the road will snap around and turn into a trampoline
your legs will spin into a motor pushing out and in
the dirt's a diving board the earth appreciates your skin

the pavement fell in love with skin
the future's bright but not for them
the soil is ripe, the air is dry
the sky is bright, the sky is bright

your spine is bent around, your clothes are hanging in the bed
you thought to stay at home but that's not what the lizard said
you never thought you'd wake up as an airplane on the sea
the water turned to wine the whiskey turned to gasoline
Track Name: Dance Malady
the liquid's stuck, so stir it up
with a dancing malady

it's in the hips, it's in the knees
in the version for the screen

a steaming bowl, flipped into smoke
in a climate malady

stuck in this body, and this body has a normal goal
