Track Name: The Insider
a new man
the grand nephew of the former governor

60 Rivers on the lookout for a new thing
have been quiet in Manhattan

a new Sally
her comedic mother
Lenny Bruce his former Wendy
in the process the way athletes do
fake encounters
the insider

a new villain
recently revealed his pay

100 bills
intelligent for money
tweeds are in his new company

acting sorry
we are too busy
getting attention
in the process the gift of show
we love to watch her
Track Name: Design by Isis
it's not on
you got honey
I got seeds in my mouth
you think it's funny

it's not on
you got pathos
I got the pleasures of cooking
got my coat on

in the glare of flashing lights
to capture your waking thoughts
until the scars are gone
it's not on

it's not on
you got a mansion
the writers make it easy
your words speak to me

it's not on
you got extensions
i know I should embrace them
i can't afford you

in the glare of flashing lights...

it's not on
selling sanctuary
in a leather aprin "Design by Isis"

it's not on
break down in public
give up sex as gimic
I can't offend you

in the glare of flashing lights...
Track Name: Planetary Mood
OK I'll try to make the moon fly
apocalypse you set the scene
mat the frame so only crystal jewels remain

yes you are a vision come to me
yes I did beyond all certainty
held a golden cup of mead
silver kettle roses seed
oh so freaky

smoke kick a small cigar
haze of whispered promises
alive like poets dreaming light
vanish on a cloudless night
oh so freaky

breathless symantics play on our tongues
touch the bedpost
fix the sun
warmth of words tales untold
in conversations tied
to manicals old

chatter on the good one's mine
feast on calf and fowl and swine
piss on Styx the sweet decline
it's how we know the day is dying
oh so freaky
