Track Name: Be Moral
I love the world
I hate the world
(building my castle)
My tubes are tied
I can't produce
I wanna see strong women
I wanna see soft men
I move too much
For my own good

I want to be moral
(I want a blessing)

My open mouth
Pants for love

I lay my head on
Grandfather's shoulder
And I listen
To a chainsaw
How it moves through
The maple body
Soft and slow as
The trees divided
The testimony
Of humble elders
In the face of
Anxious doubters
The joy and fruit of
Peaceful action
Wise old child
I'm yearning after

I want to be moral
(I want to be sweet and soft)

Give me some of your sweetness
Give me some of your love
I salivate
I need a taste

I want to be moral
Track Name: Like a Peach
Come on friend, give me a high five
I really wanna slap your big hand
Pick me up, and we'll go for a ride
Downtown, lookin'
For our soulmates
Like a peach
Drippin from some tree

Someone who my mom will accept
And dad will slap me five behind her back
It's all about the line between
Nasty and wholesome
Like a peach
In my outstretched hand

Politics and urban real estate
Then we spot some candidates
Friend makes a move
Some show signs of
Mild interest
My love
Like a peach
The first bite is so sweet

I recognize the absurdity
(You smell like soap and)
Of looking for real intimacy
(You just touched my leg)
Kids? How soon?
(There are two other girls dancing with us now)
Would you make a good mother?
(Your hair is stuck in my teeth)
And we're shouting at eachother
(You are the one)
I can't remember your name
(You are the one)
But some of your sweat is on me
(Be my wife)
(You're my wife)
I recognize the absurdity
I love you
I love you
You're my wife
We are soulmates

Like a peach

Me and wife outside for some air
She has opinions
We don't always have to agree
Like a peach
I bruise easily

Her friends come out
And my wife wants to go
Where are you going my love?
She won't let me know
Like a peach
It's all over

I recognize the absurdity
(It could've been my dental hygiene)
Of looking for real intimacy
(This new haircut is trying too hard)
The co-eds are just here for fun
(They're on their parents dime)
And the thirty-somethings are worse off than me
(I don't think I need to cut out bread yet)
I'm mid-twenties, new to the hunt
(I'm saving for an Altima)
I recognize the absurdity
(I should've told her more about myself)
I've still got my friend
(She should of asked)
Even though I don't know where he is
Track Name: Peaceful Valley
Peace in this valley
I've chosen to simplify
But war in this country
Gone and slipped my mind, slipped

This feeling of peace
During wartime
Doesn't sit well
With my soul

(Simplify, slipped my mind)

I live in this peaceful valley (with my soul)
Still the world groans all around me
Peace and avoidance (peaceful home)
There's a difference
My dry eyes are a sudden warning
I realize that we live in wartime
Why can't I feel
This oppression

Old racism (coming to light)
We all know this
The system has favorites (that's not right)
But we try not to notice

This feeling of peace (coming to light)
is a distraction
It doesn't sit well (that's not right)
With my soul

With my soul
With my soul
With my soul
Peaceful home
In my soul I know I'm part of the problem
Simple distraction makes my heart numb
Action in my mouth like peanut butter
Every time I speak I stutter
I live in this peaceful valley
Though the world groans around me
Track Name: Inner Kitchen
In her kitchen
Chopping onions
Soaking dishes
She's preparing
To feed her siblings

(Fathers missing
Mothers sleeping
Television)
Come on supper time

(Moldy carpet
Trash apartment
Family dinner)
She loves them so much

Tears
Tears
She loves them so much

Inner vision
Her prince comes in
Brings some love in
Cares for children
It's home atlast

(Fathers missing
Mothers sleeping
Television)
Come on supper time

(Moldy carpet
Trash apartment
Family dinner)
She loves them so much

Tears
Tears
She loves them so much
