New Truth (2020)

God Knows Why

I could hear just fine last night

And I sat up and it went quiet

My right earʼs gone forever
It was there and now itʼs gone

I used to be in stereo

I used to hear and now I donʼt

Iʼm in mono now forever
It was there and now itʼs gone 

God Knows Why

God Knows Why
God Knows Why
God Knows Why
I saw a car turn down the street
And knock a skater off his feet
Then he paused in front of me before accelerating
I had time to jump aside and four unwilling people died

Though Iʼd been saying awful things about my life

God Knows Why
God Knows Why
God Knows Why
God Knows Why 

Come on now let me in

May be no reason

But you canʼt go back

The people made a grave mistake

They watched too much TV
And never exercised their minds
And let their spirits atrophy
Today you said you dreamed last night

I pulled you through a blue door

Into a beautiful bright light
And then you stood me up tonight 

God Knows Why
God Knows Why

God Knows Why
God Knows Why
I could hear just fine last night
And I sat up and it went quiet
Iʼm in mono now forever
It was there and now itʼs gone and

God knows why.

I Don't Want To Live Alone Anymore

I donʼt want to live alone anymore

Always waiting on an invitation
Iʼve been leading an investigation
I donʼt want to live alone anymore.

Thereʼs a name for this, Iʼm sure

Always pacing round in revelation

Repositioning the plants and paintings

I donʼt want to live alone anymore.

I worry, what if I canʼt sleep
And wake you with the hours I keep
Come sit with me while I eat seeds and read.

Though I like to be alone in the morning
Play the same song like a hundred times over

I would like someone to come and stop me
I donʼt want to live alone anymore.
Yeah
Iʼll wake you when the sun ainʼt shit
And love you for the hell of it
Come cook for me while I eat seeds and read.

Yeah, yeah, yeah
I donʼt want to live alone anymore
I donʼt want to live alone anymore
I donʼt want to live alone anymore.

Color Love

If you can find somebody to hold onto

You take a holiday right away

Even for just an hour, you leave your tower

And find another sunset view
Color love
Color love

Color love
Color love
Put on a record, let it move you and turn it over

Listen to it all the way through
Go see some 20th Century master paintings
And get away somewhere new
Color love
Color love
Color love
Color love
And as the years go by donʼt leave it hanging around

You got to celebrate it all the way through
Keep on looking up, listening, cultivating
And being what they love about you.
Color love
Color love
Color love
Color love

Old Habits

Yeah itʼs me
Didnʼt mean to bark up that tree
I just thought I would say it
In a moment of confidence
Itʼs an old habit
And it never works out that way but

Glad I caught it early
Man, Iʼve come so far
Itʼs not the answer I was hoping for

But itʼs the lesson that I needed
So I donʼt dream about it anymore

Or keep repeating
Old habits
When the train comes round again

Will I ever get off?

Where do I get on?

Itʼs not the ending I was hoping for

But itʼs the answer that I needed

So I donʼt dream about it anymore

Or keep repeating

La da da da

Oooh

What About That Day

Babe, we cannot carry on
It isnʼt fun anymore
Itʼs unwise to endure
All this friction that we make.

Trouble you and trouble me
Once was a fiery combo
Now a season ago, without reason 

But what about that day?

What about that day?
What about that day?
Iʼll have to remind myself
Of all the things that you said

Not the books you read

Iʼll miss your confidence in bed.

Goodbye love, you were the star

Of my horror show
I know, I know, I know

But what about that day?

What about that day?

What about that day?

What about that day?

What about that day?

What about that day?

Not My Guy

Well heʼs a beautiful man

Treats me well

Newly divorced
And he needs some freedom now
So I enjoy his company
And I love him like a human being
But heʼs not my guy, no heʼs not my guy
Not my guy, no heʼs not my guy
Now this other lunatic
Heʼs got a long, known history
And he tried his tricks on me
When people show you who they are believe them

But I enjoy his company
And I love him like a human being
Yeah I love him like a human being
But heʼs not my guy, no heʼs not my guy
Not my guy, no heʼs not my guy
Baby, I should say goodbye
So I can find a king
No ceiling, no shadow
To shade my offering.
Hey girl, remember me?
We met once and Iʼm perfect
Oh damn, yeah I remember you
Yeah youʼre perfect, but not for me
Oh, wind, pheromones, I donʼt know
There doesnʼt need to be a reason
But I am just enough psychic to see
Yeah Iʼm just enough psychic to see
That youʼre not my guy, no youʼre not my guy

Not my guy, no heʼs not my guy
Not my guy, no heʼs not my guy
Not my guy, no heʼs not my guy
Baby, I should say goodbye
So I can find a king
No ceiling, no shadow
To shade my offering.

Even If I Tried

Even if I tried Even if I tried

You would never see this from my side

Another sunny day
Gone and pissed awayn
Thinking you would hear me out

Wishing you would meet me.

I canʼt find
Someone so uninspired
Yet youʼre the authority on life and living?

With infinite wonder
to turn to turn you on
Youʼre never open
To anything like that

Even if I tried
Even if I tried
I could never be so dead inside

Another sunny day
Gone and pissed away
Thinking you would hear me out

Wishing you would meet me.

In my youth
Wholly by circumstance
Had to be captive to your nonsense

But good news!
No one has to talk to you
The world keeps turning
And you, you fade away.

Even if I tried
Even if I tried
You would never see this from my side

Another sunny day
Gone and pissed away
Thinking you would hear me out

Wishing you would meet me.

Small Talk

Anything you ask me I can handle it
Don't want to have no meaningless chatter
It just so happens I'm a fumbler at that anyway.

Case you didn't notice I been suffering
Some days are better, others are ok
It doesn't matter what you say
I know you're suffering too, like everyone.
Tell me how you feel
How'd your brother die?
How you doing now?
Small talk, small talk
Hear about the weather from my family
All about some new store opening soon
I try to deepen it
I wonder if they'd ever get into it with me.
Tell me how you feel
How'd your brother die?
How you doing now
Small Talk, small talk
There should be a law
There should be a law
There should be some crazy law!
Small Talk, small talk
Small Talk, small talk

Psychedelic Love

I went and saw my sister friend

Told her I been compromising
And I would like a psychedelic love

I will give all day long

She says, "Here's a piece of paper and a really nice pen

Write it down, read it out, tell me what it says, baby."

I want a man who can please me - please me
Into me and ready when he meets me - meets me

Knows about the body and can teach me
I want a man who can reach me.
(Somebody who I want to please too)

Naturally, a good man
Alpha-like so I don't crush him,
Alpha-like but checks his privilege
Ready for a psychedelic love
I been working all the time, I been teaching, I been giving

Wrote it down, hear me out, this is what it says baby

I want a man who can please me - please me

Unafraid to say it when he needs me
Knows about the body and can feed me
I want a man who can reach me.

(Somebody who I want to please too
I really want to)
I want a man who can please me - please me

Into me and ready when he meets me

Knows about the body and can teach me
I want a man who can reach me.

A Different Kind Of Life

Heard a word bomb so outrageous

Different parts went off at different times

And I will take my chances
Just to feel a different kind of life
A different kind of mind
An easier kind of love
An easier time.
Pray that I can jump these fences
Iʼm a mirror, I will show you
Maybe there will be a miracle
Everyone can extricate themselves
From a riddle they canʼt solve
From unnecessary work
Find different kind of life
A easier kind of love
An easier time.

Hard To Say

Iʼm a stray cat from a good home
Just got lost one day, feel me
This is undeniably good, as a concept, really
Oh forgive me
I guess Iʼm not here right now
Please be patient and Iʼll come around
Tell me softly what youʼll do with me
Once I get out of the slammer I constructed
Oh forgive me
I guess Iʼm not here right now
Please be patient
Iʼm just getting over, well
Hard to say it was love
Or to believe itʼs not enough
Iʼll get over it, just stay here with me
Heal me.
I suspect Iʼll only need
Like a few more weeks of conversation with our bodies

Oh I guess Iʼm not here right now
Come on, be patient
Iʼm just getting over, well
Hard to say it was love
And to believe itʼs not enough
Iʼll get over it, just stay here with me
Heal me
Please donʼt leave.

Seek Peace

Mmmm
Mmmm
Mmmm
Mmmm
Am I doing enough
For the tragedy I see?

When I can barely cope

With my own existence

Mmmm
Mmmm
Freak
Lonely
And am I occupied
By inferior design
And have I much to give

Without confidence Mmm

Mmmm Seek Peace Mmmm
