Track Name: mushroom pelican in the beehive of my soul
the mournful maggot
of universal love
wags the dog
in vinegar soaked trees
perpetual salamander mountain
briskly distinguishes the sword
crushing a pencil beneath my knee
sedimentary asphault
coagulation device
sacks of potatoes flying on their own
and pork skins
mushroom pelican in the beehive of my soul
Track Name: old man (jesse rigged the game)
sitting down with old man
drinking coffee start the day
laying down with jesse
for the game we're gonna play
neanderthals eat tissues
and the walrus feels the pain
and everybody knows
that jesse rigged the game
cuz there aint no way
you got all those tens and twos and aces and kangs
plus the dolphin beetle told me
that jesse rigged the game

being here depressed
at the old man game i play
i got threes and fours and fives
got nothing good all day
the rabbit pterodactyl told the half mutated crane
that jesse stacked the deck in his favor
jesse rigged the game
Track Name: doorway to nothing
(why?)

i walked through the doorway to nothing
there was nothing behind that door
the doorway
Track Name: all my pickles are dead
all my pickles are dead

aint got a nickle and i aint got no bread
cuz all my pickles are dead

no i dont know what im gonna eat instead
all my pickles are dead

all my pickles are dead

how oh how will my children be fed
when all my pickles are dead

well i asked my friend sally and i asked my friend
why all my pickles are dead

why all my pickles are dead

my uncle done hung himself out of the shed
cuz all my pickles are dead

all my pickles are dead

im gonna force a bully pulpit to audit the fed
find out why my pickles are dead

cuz the vinegars gone missing and the cucumbers are lead
and all my pickles are dead

and all my pickles are dead
