RAGAMUFFIN PARADE

ABUNDANT SUNSHINE

Rocheblave

i dunno what it takes
it must take a lotta mistakes
it must take you far from home
a good ways from ohio
i dunno what it means
i just used to float now i sink
water on now i'm gone 
who will discover me 
discover me
i'm pickin up my leaves
tell me if you feel some green
there's not much left to see 
what was that you wanted me to be

Take Me

take me to 
the state pound
cause i'm comin down
take me to 
my place in the ground
no, i'll take myself
what's left
all the rest went
somewhere i dunno
i must'a gave the wheel to some dark angel
before you show me to my mom
give me a good shave
but dont you try and save 
some image of the innocence
from which i fell

Stupid Rabbit

if you go
go so i won't know
slip out 
dip out
don't you worry about a note
but if you come back again
come screaming in my window
every time i think of you
it's all i can do
to keep from crying
ain't it a damn damn shame
i hope that's something you would say
if you go 
just go don't go slowly
cause i can feel you crawling
so i'll see ya when you're falling
i'll see ya when you're falling down
i was thinking have you seen 
me without you it's a dream
it's a harmony korine
and you know what i mean
every time i think of you 
it's all i can do 
it's all i can do
 

For the Passers-by

wait you 
without a name
hardly a face
you've gone away
before you heard me sing
can you halt 
you on a string 
led fast 
by a being you call your pet
don't wait 
til i'm dead 
to consider what i've said
i've only spoken if you grant me that
wait you 
burning stick 
i'll be through 
before i'm through with you
i'll be here 
and i'll be went
i'll be ashes before i'm missed
the earth and all its beauty 
it slips so quick
but you don't have to run from it
so wait me 
don't i get
all entangled in lament
while i'm still kicking
 

Train Song

he kissed his mouth for all to see
jumped in his arms
as if to make a scene
the scene was not meant for the stage
these actors do not play
one feels a little played
he said
"come save me
how come you only hold my hand
under water with a 
foot on land"
yeah we're going
watch the power lines
they move like waves in the sky
as we drive by 
follow them to the sea
leave this uproar behind
others 
they will kill you
don't worry
they will rebuild you
it's human nature
they just want you to feel
like they do
you say i've got it wrong
it's mother nature
mother culture
but in your research
don't lose focus 
on your brother
there are no sins in love
 

Man

i know you've got your shit together
seems you got it all
man, don't you ever fall
don't you ever 
hear the sirens call
i know i do
classify me as other
cause i can't do this undercover 
everyone gets what they want from me
i hope this song makes you happy
i know you've got your place in heaven
a long way from down the hall
man, don't you ever call
don't you ever bump into my wall
classify me as other 
paint me without color
cause i'm just another

Boom

searching for a rise
in your eyes
no longer found
i settle for a high
to get me by
in it i drown
i wish i could sleep
and not dream
end the steady stream of you
that floods the day with dreaming too
i wasn't looking for love
without it i can't see
the water's rising above
i'm drowning without you
i can't breathe

I Can't Believe

i can't believe you're lying stiff
i can't believe you're lying stiff
i can't believe 
roll over make room for me
i'm crawling in
maybe we can be close enough
maybe we can be close enough
maybe we can be 
close enough
if we grow into one big tree
we'll go haunting our old streets
carve a pumpkin on halloween
and if i wake up from a dream
with only memories and several feet between us
just hold on 
i'll be down soon
i hope you can wait

 

SINGLES

Crazy

how bad can she be
if she really likes me for me
she's covered in ink
what would mother think
and i guess she's always stoned
do i mind
no i've been drinking so it's fine
she used to cut herself
i cut myself down with wine
all the time
i'm the one that's crazy 
is it too late lady
