Infinity Mirror

By: Jimi Woodul

Verse:

When I see you

We bounce in the infinity mirror

Arms and legs

Doubling behind us for miles we cannot see

 Chorus:

Then we are unfinished centipedes

With unseen ends who’s eyes have met

I like to look at you like that

 

Beautiful Big Bad Land

By: Jimi Woodul

Verse:

One day down eternity to go

Showered in the gold of a sunrise facing bedroom window

A little human, a lot more I don’t understand

Rage and grace go waltzing

Figure eights and zeros on the sand

Across this beautiful big and bad land

Verse:

Day two ran out of things to do

Spinning on the seat of a worn out kicked round antique barstool

A little sly, a lot more out of my mind

Love and lust go dine

She throws red wine directly in my face

And storms out of that fancy place

Chorus:

Yeah, alright…

Verse:

Day three I’m only stems and seeds

Showered in the red of a sunset space cadet dead end street

A little tired, a lot more thinking of drinks

My young gets old goes out and

Picks a pretty girl and says hello

Come whatever may, ok let it be so

Chorus:

Yeah, alright

Bridge:

Black of eyes, start to eat

Become dark lakes see everything

Sky of blue see of green

Everyone has all they need

Verse:

The fourth and fifth the major lift up high

Then six, you slick you sly disguised nine

Seven of em down, infinity to roll

I face my sunrise window

Ready to high five the unseen hand

That made this beautiful big and bad land

 

8/25/12 (Crying With Your Sunglasses On)

By: Jimi Woodul

Verse:

Clear sky but I smell rain

Dallas I cry I die today

Sunray brooding, last light

Lone star shoots over one last night

And finally shies away

Verse:

Clear your brain, accept all things

Dallas don’t fade that song you sing

Reject your feel, be like steel

Its not true, its just not real

How violently I’m afraid

Chorus:

On ground with your head in your hands

I’m on air and I am flyin

Dive off I drop with the bombs

And you are crying with your sunglasses on

Verse:

I laid way down and stayed a year

New York you dark little tear

Moon ray brooding, blue night

Star shoot, sick starlight

You might finally find away

Verse:

Time gave a one way bridge

I crawled across it collapsing

Time gave a cave in, new morning in the canyon

And its all bright but all wrong, she’s got her shades on

Bridge:

Come on home, I don’t know I don’t know

I am shallow as a shadow

And I’m a whistling bomb

You are crying with your sunglasses

 

Animal War Song Monster Drum

By: Jimi Woodul

Verse:

Scary man up on a hill high as a kite

Bulldozer bullfight beasty machine American

Dreamy jesus feed us grease we need it feed us

Fat flock to the secret garden lead us

We are grazing on the factory farm

Crack in the corn, sick in the head sick in the heart, sound the alarm

There is a storm with a hammer arm drawn at dawn

Beating on animal warsong monster drums

Chorus:

Crying everything we do is connected, and everything we feel

Verse:

Violence in the deep the reflection of the man god

Now stand straight up, looking at his hands thought

Thoughts that shook as the gut blood rocked

I am, I am, I am

There was a pain like being born and then bright light

When all at once it clicked and connected

Everything we do is connected, and everything we feel is connected

We are the children of a ripple in a muddy pool

Lie naked in the waves of the monster blues

Water’s dream of love, waking up

Man god monster drum

Chorus:

We have forgotten who we are

Everything we do is connected and everything we feel is connected

 

Tough Love

By: Jimi Woodul

Verse:

Nose-diving day

Creeping up under the earth is

Hard loving and blank staring

I go dancing in the hard light

And draw stark safe lines for you

Then I pray

Chorus:

That the world wash over you

And shine all over you

Verse:

Nose-diving day

Scraped up the deal good and raw and

Crossed my stark safe lines when you told me

Yeah you told me that you love me

And always will, always will

Forever I pray

Chorus:

That the world wash over you

And shine all over you

 Verse:

Nose-diving day

Scraped up the deal good and raw and

Crossed my stark safe lines when you told me

Yeah you told me that you love me

And always will, always will

Forever I pray

My electric bone kalimba

Flowers in a Field of Snow

By: Jimi Woodul

Verse:

Glory flicks a lighter

Drags a bowl and sighs the smoke

Singing drifting

Her numbered notes

My name she sings

Soft as whispering

Chorus:

Last night startled white she spoke

I see time when my old eyes close

Memories, rebel-hued-wind-battered-petaled I don’t knows

They are my flowers in a field of snow

Bridge:

FATE

Chorus:

Last night startled white she spoke

I see time when my old eyes close

Memories, rebel-hued-wind-battered-petaled I don’t knows

They are my flowers in a field of snow

When in bed, rosy red she said

“I’ve an odd old body with a stranger head

but when that familiar dream unfolds, I am not scared to go

to see my flowers in a field of snow…”

“they are flowers in a field of snow”

 

Drifters

By: Ben Woodul

 

Verse:

Stole from a place, born of winter

Snuck away under a starless night

There the moon passed its’ time in hiding

Riding out the silence of the fading light

Across the sea, of endless concrete

Eating our fill of radio waves

Out in the empty we feel we’re forgiven

I hold your hand as you drift away

Chorus:

Why are we running all these empty miles?

Crying for love long dead and gone?

Talk to me about your empty miles

I know how it feels to carry on

Verse:

Cloak myself in lovely language

A smiling face for the gallow scene

I never lie when I say I’m cold hearted

You hear the words what do you think they mean

Smart enough to know our own weakness

We can list all the words we don’t believe

And never want the ones that want us

We’re just too in love with the feeling of grief

Chorus:

Verse:

Everyone loves you in the shadows

Whiskey smiles and dirty eyes

Too much to drink, too many cigarettes

And loneliness in cheap supply

But in the daylight we’ll all be strangers

Ragged faces in the morning heat

With all these bottles stacked all around us

We’re dead town in a ghost city

Bridge:

Slowly it becomes a dream

Some fleeting thought, only found in a picture frame

So melt with me again

Before the sands of time complete their cruel works end

Chorus:

Talk to me about your empty miles, I know how it feels I know how they roll on

 

Farm Party

By: Dan DeKalb

 

Intro:

Bring the night to me baby

Bring those nights back to the palm of my hand

We can sort it out from there

I know I know I know we can

Verse:

The farm party got crazy

Everyone hurry up put on a different hat

We’ll make movies in our brains

Write songs from the soul to flush out the pain

Chorus:

Cut me wide open, you guys know who I am

And if I wrote you a song, I know you’d understand

Verse:

You’re a passionate lady

everything was going seemingly swell

Till you went batshit crazy

Its alright I forgive you

You know I always will

Your mom’s killing it in flip cup

She’s in beast mode and everybody knows it

She’s giving me advice

I hope I don’t blow it for my team this time

With tractors powered by kites

I can’t tell if we’re in or we’re out of science

Taking shots after midnight

Oh don’t go to bed, have another one instead

Chorus:

Cut me wide open, you guys know who I am

And if you made a movie, you bet I’d understand

Bridge:

Hey guys, I apologize

I know I was a saior, cowboy, construction worker last night

But I didn’t mean to bring anyone to tears

For dipping my foam pirate sword in your beers

Verse:

I don’t if its magic

Transposed in little boys and little girls

But I think its great and I love it

When we all throw down the weight of the world

Chorus:

Cut me wide open

You guys know who I am

And if you had to dance till dawn

You bet I’d understand

Lets have another little get together

It would not matter the place

Cause if you painted a highway for me I would drive all night

To see all your stupid faces

 

Open Bar

By: Jimi Woodul

 

Crack window, go home joe

Timing clutch, masterful

In his head forever narrowing halls

Open bar fun for all

Blackhole doubt, no way out

Sex and sever, scream and shout

Liquor lightnings in nosediving bathroom stalls

Open bar, fun for all

Out a skull, thoughts beautiful

Some cling to cliffs, now icicles

Others drip and into pools of color fall

Open bar, fun for all

Call me love, is or was

Or carnival, brass band and drums

Just let me voice the other end of your phone call

Open bar, fun for all

Chain chain chained

To joys and pain

To brick on brick, from grain by grain

Lovers kissing one more window in the wall

Open bar, fun for all

Dose by dose, high fly hopes

Shooting fast like spinning mad kaleidescopes

And so afraid we blessed chaoses trickle

Open bar, fun for all

 

Mr. Distorto

By: Jimi Woodul

Verse:

Half moon high, my oh my

Glow bug light, star fall sky

Out my skull and a window

Show me where I go

Fields of doubt, spoken word

Smokey room, red river

Eraser rain down from above

Show me what I was

Chorus:

Skeleton shadow, gentle psycho

Your Mr. Distorto

Verse:

Bully time, bend a string

The violins came oozing in

It cost us all that came before

Tossed us in the wind

Its why lie and just lead on

The fog and disfiguration

Its how you sleep with makeup on

And I chameleon

Chorus:

Be your saturn’s cold halo, gentle psycho

Your mr. Distorto

Who?

Mr. Distorto…

Verse:

I could drink till I don’t see

Buzz my honey stumble bee

Then beg you from down on one knee

Show me how I’m free

Your field of love my smokey room

We blend in, blue on blue

You teach me how to die awhile

Ill show you what to do

Chorus:

Be your saturn’s cold halo, gentle psycho

Your mr. distorto

Who?

Mr. Distorto…

Country Fields

By: Jimi Woodul

Verse:

Mom said of the sun, peeking through the clouds

“That is god’s eye, looking down

At all the smiling, all the crying faces”

I’ve been scared for a long time now

Dad said, “buddy don’t you worry I’m a watcher

Of all the pain, and all the laughter

I’ve been a stormy man, bluesy slow hand

I spin around and helicopter”

Chorus:

Out of my country fields roll hills

I’ve been climbing on

Out of my country fields roll hills

Verse:

Dan showed me with his heart he believed

And took that faith across the country

He’s been dreaming, he has not been alone

No no no no

My sister showed me with a smile she knew

She is a flower in my mommas garden

Though I am foolish, this is not justice at all

No no no no

Chorus:

Out of my country fields roll hills

I’ve been climbing on

Country hills

Rolling skies

Bridge:

There are stranger’s in my mind at night

Its all, muddy water and runny color

I do not know them now but I have known them

Somewhere between the red barn and the dive bar

My brothers said of the fire I set

Put it out, put it out you idiot

You fool, I will miss you like pain

My love tremebled but she stay by my side

She had her beautiful eyes crying with all of her might

I am sorry, I understand if you go

Chorus:

Out of my country fields roll hills

I’ve been climbing on

Out of my country hills

Roll sky
