Bad Dreams 03:32
I wish it would snow If it were granted would I get buried? What would I do then? I'm not much of a man in those situations I have bad dreams I have bad dreams I'll keep singing my songs take nothing for granted set sights on new pastures If the shepherd won't let me in I'll learn not to hate him out of fear of losing my bad dreams I have bad dreams

Home To You 03:08
I've been to Dealey Plaza I've been to Montreal I've seen the Californias took nothing from it all I slept through Misourri through Montana too I've heard it's God's country nothing quite compares to you I'm coming home I'm coming home I'm coming home coming home to you I've walked the streets of Paris with my friend Zelda's ghost I've been where the heart is and seen both sides of most I like Indiana dusk from Congress bridge my old house in Alberta where family always lives I'm coming home I'm coming home I'm coming home coming home to you

Today I heard a plane as though for the first time it jarred me from my sleep the sound of its engines were terrifying disturbing the peace that's the price we pay for living in the future I thought of those people in that jet plane floating miles above the earth where were they leaving? Where were they going to? in such hurry that's just what you do when you're living in the future If I were with them and they let me steer I'd want to fly over the Thames see my first house Paris on the Seine the blue of the Gulfstream the size of the Atlantic and the great Mississippi Time's no match for the Grand Banks Time's no match for the Mountain Time's no match for ashes Time's no match for the Phoenix Time's no match for music Time's no match for my mind or my body it's just a measure that keeps reminding us reminding us reminding us we're living in the future

we lose sight of our limbs underwater when we take the swim many real things go unseen among the fake things abright in the gleam the same things that make us laugh are the same things that make us cry tell the one joke you do so well it makes us happy it makes me proud as hell kiss my forelock when I play dead across my withers I'll carry you to bed the same things that make us laugh are the same things that make us cry the same things that make us laugh are the same things that make us cry I'm but a broke bird whose song has sailed I'm but a letter returned through the mails would you defend me to the songs who have used me up before moving on? the same things that make us laugh are the same things that make us cry the same things that make us laugh are the same things that make us cry

Woke up in the morning with nothing to do stretching in the sheets I felt envious of your body the air is still cold the sun is not out hello there my dear for being the warmest part of winter mornings snow is still falling streetcars are slow shops are all closed that makes it quiet it's true it doesn't snow like it once did then again, seems everything's changed since we were kids winter mornings what if we don't get up at all cruise through Christmas and your best friend's New Years ball our limbs akimbo as a rule of thumb on into spring, when the birds all fly home and we watch them come winter mornings

Lake Travis 03:20
my body is a vessel for your body to be gazed upon your body is a trestle that my body is hanging from to be made more than a shell I will continue to want to be just like you us both sticking to the sand out on the beach when you want to we could wade into the water swallowed whole like the precious sons and daughters that we are Sand is what was used to make these glass we cheers to have these mango drinks quench our fundamental thirst to which we're born it's in this way we both know to be free running barefoot from the tourists across the lea mind the danger of the snakes among of the rocks if we don't startle them it's in their nature to stay out of our way

about

Animal Parts Toronto, Ontario

Five years removed from their last release, Animal Parts delivers twins (!!), albums Four and Five in their catalogue. They return matured, if not weathered, no longer those nascent youths, inchoate twentysomes. They look poised to dose the air with their wizened lovers folly: "Get. On. Jolly!" ... more
