2.1507 : 6/18/09 : Downhill Side (The Golden Age: 52/100)

I guess I rolled right over the top
I’ll let myself get away with one more short hop
Here on the downhill side
To think I once pinned so much on pride
And just what have I got things pinned on now?
Another night so what another vow
To roll on the downside
To think I once pinned so much on pride
Here we are on the downhill side
To think I once pinned so much on pride
Here on the downhill side
Thinking how I once pinned so much on pride

2.1506 : 6/17/09 : Hoe the Row (The Golden Age: 51/100)

Nothing growing there
don’t expect much to come up
Guess I missed the sweet spot
Maybe screwed my green thumb up
But hoe the row anyway
pretend to expect to see something any day
Think someone might notice
finally call me out
I wouldn’t try to hide or lie
I’d confess to all my doubt
But still I’d hoe the row anyway
pretend to expect to see something any day
And here I hoe the row anyway
pretend to expect to see something any day
Yes I hoe the row anyway
pretend to expect to see something
anything
any day

2.1505 : 6/16/09 : Transition (The Golden Age: 50/100)

Time is time and sometimes there’s none
Not going to apologize to anyone
But the transition will be effortless
Just sit back and watch this white hot mess
Bang yeah that’s it baby the-the-the-the that’s all
Pack up you lipstick and leave the other shoe isn’t going to fall
And the transition will be effortless
Just sit back and watch this white hot mess
Yeah the transition will be effortless
So sit back and watch this white hot mess
And the transition will be effortless
just
sit back and watch this old white hot mess

2.1504 : 6/15/09 : We’ve Got to Do Better (The Golden Age: 49/100)

Sometimes troubles come in torrents
May I rise as the situation warrants
We’ve got to do better
We may well need our best
To past through this small fire
To pass the next test
I make this simple request
let me do close to my best
We’ve got to do better
We may well need our best
To past through this small fire
To pass the next test
We’ve got to do better
We may well need our best
Well there’s always some fire
always the next test

2.1503 : 6/14/09 : Horse (The Golden Age: 48/100)

Said it before
no doubt say it again
I can guess at anything
at all except when
I guess I gotta get back on the horse
you ask me if I knew I say of course
I know I’ve fallen back too quick on force
Paint I been calling you until I’m hoarse
for the want of that horse
my kingdom went up in smoke
Lean in early riser
let me tell you my joke!
I guess I gotta get back on the horse
you ask me if I knew I say of course
I know I’ve fallen back too quick on force
Paint I been calling you until I’m hoarse
Oh Paint? Oh Paint where have you gotten to
I hope I didn’t wait so long you thought I had forgotten you
I guess I gotta get back on the horse
you ask me if I knew I say of course
I know I’ve fallen back too quick on force
Paint I been calling you until I’m hoarse
I guess I gotta get back on the horse
you ask me if I knew I say of course
I know I’ve fallen back too quick on force
Paint I been calling you until I’m hoarse

Screw this noise
Just leave me be a while
I’m so tired of talking to you
mile after mile after mile
turn off the radio
screw that noise
everything that man creates
he soon enough destroys
I guess that’s the test isn’t it
I guess I’m best beginning it
this blasphemy of my true heart
It’s sure not how I thought I’d start
turn off the radio
screw that noise
everything that man creates
he soon enough destroys
turn off the radio
screw that noise
everything that man creates
he soon enough destroys
turn off the radio

2.1499 : 6/10/09 : 1999 (The Golden Age: 44/100)

Every so often I dial the decade back
and write the date out 1999
guess you call that pushing 40
I remember that year just fine
1999
the towers hadn’t fell
but even then I didn’t think
things were going too well
this’ll never be a dance hit
nostalgia a decade stale
And it’s worse than I imagined
yet I still don’t know if we’re finally beyond the pale
1999
the towers hadn’t fell
but even then I didn’t think
things were going too well
1999
the towers hadn’t fell
but even then I didn’t think
things were going too well
1999
the towers hadn’t fell
but even then I didn’t think
things were going too well

2.1498 : 6/9/09 : Try Try Again (The Golden Age: 43/100)

Oh my I’m getting boring
with my nice little refrains
and the near-daily indulgences
and their near indelible stains
try try again
that won’t really cut it
get it it’s a refrain
but if you’ve got nothing better, shut it
wish I could quit there
because that wraps it up just fine
refrain, refrain, refrain, refrain, repair
hell with it just bind it all up with twine
try try again
that won’t really cut it
get it it’s a refrain
but if you’ve got nothing better, shut it
try try again
that won’t really cut it
get it it’s a refrain
but if you’ve got nothing better, shut it
try try again
that won’t really cut it
get it it’s a refrain
but if you’ve got nothing better
just shut it

3,687 : 42 ?




Flow time without
any lists of reasons
Forget history starting now
no shred left of days or seasons
turn turning
rain to blazing
leaves to bare limbs
all amazing
will I recall
will I mark the days
what will make a mark
So much the same in so many ways
turn turning
rain to blazing
leaves to bare limbs
all amazing
turn turning
rain to blazing
leaves to bare limbs
all amazing
turn turning
rain to blazing
leaves to bare limbs
all amazing

Is it the first or last that’s
the finest one there is
the finest of a fine day
take notes there’s going to be a quiz
the first last, the last last
the finest one there is
the was when, the long past
Yours, theirs, ours, hers, his
And all the middle verses

We have a common ancestor
once called invention’s mother
the first last, the last last
the finest one there is
the was when, the long past
Yours, theirs, ours, hers, his
the first last, the last last
the finest one there is

Yours, theirs, ours, hers, his
The beginning of the end, the end of the beginning
the finest of the finest
the end of loss the start of winning
the cruelest month, the kindest

I don’t know how I’m going to do tomorrow
I’ve got a list about as long as my arm
Maybe I should have shot for being a doctor
Start my day out with nothing but do no harm
But I know tonight I’m going to beat midnight
As long as I concentrate and keep this tight
I can’t get around something I’m doing wrong
back at all my old stupid tricks
But tonight I’ll beat midnight, try try again
no more fooling around, no more clicks
Tonight I know I’m going to beat midnight
As long as I concentrate and keep this tight
Tonight I know I’m going to beat midnight
As long as I concentrate and keep this tight
Yeah I know tonight I’m going to beat midnight
concentrate so hard right now

2.1493 : 6/4/09 : A Pistol (The Golden Age: 38/100)

All the world must be on some
better trip than poor old this one
well it’s a miserly wicked junket
and I’m one miserable son of a gun
That’s to say a pistol
have and will travel
put it in the bank and
bang the gavel
judge me by my gloomy words
my feeble resume of life
untravelled living in flyover land
and claiming absurd strife
Still I’m a pistol
have and will travel
put it in the bank and
bang the gavel
Yeah I’m a pistol
have and will travel
put it in the bank and
bang the gavel
Yeah I’m a pistol
have and will travel
put it in the bank and
bang the gavel

2.1492 : 6/3/09 : Except it Does (The Golden Age: 37/100)

Always back to some square
doesn’t even have a number marked
And so many times I said I’d make it there
another May come and nothing sparked
It just never stops
except it does
but nobody can really deal with that
And so we say, hey, just because
Surely this must be the last
hilarious what a clever jest
Surely this too will pass
Surely this must be my ever best
It just never stops
except it does
but nobody can really deal with that
And so we say, hey, just because
It just never stops
except it does
but nobody can really deal with that
And so we say, hey, just because
It just never stops
except it does
but nobody can really deal with that
And so we say it’s just because

Don’t ask just go wherever
Follow the bellwether
Don’t ask just go wherever
Follow the bellwether
Don’t ask just go wherever

try to lose again win again

2.1489 : 5/31/09 : Big Idea (The Golden Age: 34/100)

Dying for rain and
wanting only an early night
all the big ideas are faded
in fact not much seems so bright
Big idea why don’t you stay away, a while
It seems like I don’t need you to smile
A lot of little ideas need tending
you might be surprised how they stack
I surely get hung up on flashy shows
tonight at least I’m getting back
Big idea, why don’t you stay away a while
It seems like I don’t need you to smile
Big idea big idea stay away a while
It seems like I don’t need you to smile
Big idea why don’t you stay away a while
It seems like I don’t need you to smile
