Track Name: Elephant
I saw you on the open ocean
You didn't seem to know my face
Lungs burnt on the briny air
I felt no reason to reappear

My mind is like an elephant
A slow karate main event
A prison shiv in silhouette
Astronauts sleeping on the moon

The high seas didn't seem much colder
After you had sailed on
I felt the breeze upon my shoulders
Pulled last night's needle from my arm

My mind is like an elephant
A slow karate main event
A prison shiv in silhouette
Astronauts sleeping on the moon
Track Name: Monster Forestry
i had no intention of coming home for dinner
while you were singing such a tragic melody
and at the party, where you proclaimed your love
i saw you dreaming on the bathroom floor

and the strangest thing of all
the color of your eyes
like some unknown foreign flag
on a diplomat's lapel

like a ranger in some god-forsaken land
monster forestry was all you had to do
counting bones, and piecing them together
cataloging all the maladies of man

and in the hours when your cynicism slept
it seemed like day had come
to devour one who's only sense of power
was in a highball glass

at the bottom of the well you kept your heart in
was there serenity that made your tongue so cool?
parceled out like a box of yellowed postcards
it reads nothing like my blistered memories

maybe you needed a sympathetic touch?
or to be left alone?
it wasn't easy to think of you as such,
as a person all your own

i had no intention of ever coming home again
while you were screaming such a tragic melody
one more wrong, i could have left unpunished
one more treason, waiting inside your door
Track Name: Diamond Cutter
Sun rise, clear skies
Sun set, close eyes

Diamond cutter, work your magic
File my eyes to perfect points
Try your best and don't be angry
If they turn to coal again

I had the clearest image in my mind
Of your hands at work on someone's spine
Wires and cells and trails of smoke
And in the end I saw she again had hope

Sun rise, clear skies
Sun set, close eyes
