Arne "lytron" Maroon 5 would tear out their legs if they could write 30secs of this by doing it. Great great great sixties math funk pop rock whatevergreens. Do more! Favorite track: Juicebox.

Track Name: Tight Rope
holding onto the tight walk when your eyes fell to the ground as i was walking by
i knelt down to pick them up
you just smiled and shrugged holding onto the tight walk all the while
should we really even be here??????? i don't know
stumbled onto the tight rope fifty feet up off the ground as i was walking by
i knelt down to pick you up
i just smiled and shrugged letting go of the tight rope all the while

I JUST GOT BACK FROM A TALK WITH MY DOG. HE SAID, "MY FRIEND, WE ARE THE ALIENS TO SOMETHING, SOMEWHERE."
i said "if you are down, do you want to?" she lit a torch to the sky. i said "i do not give a damn if you want to let yourself wilt and die. and i know your zombie will still be in the earth."
windows burn like wax hands forced to see the world blackened
Track Name: Juicebox
even when ice creams taste like sun
that's been waiting on the moment too far gone
love your soldiers but steal the gun
when eye screams taste like

the appletrees don't find themselves
you look like a juicebox
the wires and the kites play hell
you look just like a juicebox

sleep all day, never grow old, dream all night, never remember

spread my wings. i'm a bird stuck inside a man; fingertips instead of claw hands.
naïve like a monster, trippin' balls on moonstars, perhaps an intervention from all this hopeless wishing.

WHOA OH WHOA OH
and we're all in the backyard in folding lawn CHAIRS!!

take your feet and talk them into yourself
Track Name: Wide Open
and i've been waiting on the sun to rest in my palms
big ol' tangerine burns never hurt at all
touch the moon with tippy-toes
reflections in your eyeballs
who'd you think i was? even i don't know
well i've heard better jokes before but this one just don't get old:
MY LIFE IS ALL.
terror on horizon, shape of sugar plums
rush of blood to my head, melting of ear drums
whispers in the darkness, little house of moonlight
holding hands so tightly, fingers work while the gun's fighting

god wrote me a letter that he told me not to read so i jumped off a cliff just to see what he'd said
i fell right down to the bottom
i conked my head wide open.
Track Name: The Murder Song
if we're waiting on this to change we might as well just walk away
up and above with the birds and the trees the towers fall down to our feet
we might as well just walk away
and i keep falling into me while i'm falling into you
DRAW YOURSELF. WRITE IT DOWN. BECAUSE THEY WON'T REMEMBER WHEN YOU'RE GONE.
CROSS MY t's BLIND MY EYES. BECAUSE THE SIGHT OF IT HURTS MUCH MORE THAN WORDS.
how come i don't feel welcome here anymore? cause i don't know where here is anymore

call the cops when he stops breathing. tell them whatcha...
it's too cold to be listening to you.
call the shots. i'm too nervous. blood is on my...
it's too cold to be listening to you.
Track Name: YAKOBii
let's get lost again
trying to find
something real for you
but it all feels pointless to me in my dreams.
plastic indeed we're breathing.
let's get high again
fuck it all
this shit that we're in
but it all feels pointless to me in my dreams.
plastic indeed we're breathing.

somebody stole my imagination and turned into something that i was afraid of.
somebody just walked right past me and stared me down. what was going on up in their head????
down and out, infant crimes, something more than what we just might...

what's stuck in your eye?
it's happiness.
tell me more about how that makes you feel, the deepest fears that make you the man you are, define you.

fall upon a blade of grass while your heart beats so fucking fast it burns holes in the soles of the ground, a dinosaur sound.
lately i've been trying to feed the hunger, save my brains, delay impatience, to know the truth and love the one, fall prey to what's worse to come today.
Track Name: Here Lies Sgt. Poppa's Anthill
life sprung, caught in the middle of a dead run
but beware: my feet will fall.
i know not whose hearts they'll land upon.
fault line, meet you in the middle of...
i got knocked down and i wonder as i fall,
"how many kings have tasted this earth before me?"

try me
i won't go away.
lovely,
we are

life span, cut short in a strange land.
it got knocked down
they were standing at the door
and the men knelt down and gravely swore, "HERE LIES SGT. POPPA'S ANTHILL."

it's not what you give, what you take it all away
and it's not what she gives but she takes it all away
