chalk Girl 03:56
Is that a cat at the window? Or a tiny, goblin shadow? When do you get to play? Has the rain washed you away? Her name is Rebecca. She writes this everyday on the sidewalk. Pink swirls Green diamonds Blue doodles Games Secret paths Chalk girl Where will these drawings go? Chalk girl When will you grow up? This house was made by you. Sometimes you surprise me too. Have you been taught fame? You're not a docile ghost writer. Count your brownie points. Has the rain washed you away, Rebecca? Will you write your name today? Pink swirls Green diamonds Blue doodles Games Secret paths

Flower Lady 04:07
The flower lady lived down below, Between the coffee shop and greasy spoon. Add some flowers to my morning cup o’ Joe! They greet me with a soft Hello. One season a machine came To pluck the flowers To remove the lady. Their peaceful glimmers were replaced. A silver monster bolted in their place. The victor beamed proud. I have stolen this precious space! My heart sunk to my feet, betrayed. Where did you take her? Flower Lady Why do you want to break her? She’s not your lady! I travel a new path to avoid the monster. The station glows white, busy with people. They walk against plastic and glass in the only space left. In the only space In the only space left Ads mutate, grow over my head. But still, I remember her fondly.

Built on plastic Made by this boy The TV matches my reactive voice He has a crush on magnetic noise. Plug me in To connect to my mind Click me a message Light beams from my eyes My stored response is You are cute, boy! He loves this machine. I am pieced together Yet my mind falls apart Mechanical perfection of body Love Beta 1.0 runs my heart.

Frailty in a dragon robe Feigns a cross-dresser as an old crone. She lives in the towering, brittle hotel, where the bag ladies go. The protector needs nothing. Keeping clean, she waits. Her quiet stares are more than curiosity. Don't talk about me. Let's talk about you. Her past is a mystery Not an untruth. Don't talk about me. Let's talk about you. Her past is a mystery None of its true. Her leather eyes tear pools. She exhales a wolflike breath. You have mighty big eyes! Your teeth shine bright. Will you be my grandmother? I sense you'd like to be more. Hush, little baby don’t say a word.

superHOT 03:23
I’m sorry Mr. Maker this is nothing you can quell I’m au naturale. I am losing the shell Is it just me or is it 900 degrees? This water sign is boiling and the pressure needs release Everything is wet without a cloud in the sky Its nothing you can order Nothing you can buy And I finally feel And I finally feel Alive and aware of what is really there 5 senses crackling you better be scared they could make a million dollars if they bottle what I’ve got slow, silky, sultry, sexy, SUPERHOT I’m sorry Mr. Maker paint and plastic gotta go My circuitry’s organic Look down below Its definitely me, I’m melting thru concrete I’m finally flesh and blood and feeling the heat. This isn’t diamonds, lace, or fur It ain’t no magic spell Its nothing they can sell. And I finally feel And I finally feel Alive and aware of what is really there 5 senses crackling they better be scared they could make a million dollars if they bottle what we’ve got slow, silky, sultry, sexy, SUPERHOT only you can feel…

Don't fall in love Don't fall in love Don't fall in love with Mister Rockstar. You might think you found your one true love and best friend. Sorry to say that you're in love with a glossy 8X10. Soon you'll hear the reasons why he's gotta leave. He's an artist, he's alone, he's young and must be free! Mister Rockstar Out with the boys His meaningless vows Prove empty noise. Mister Rockstar Adored by his fans Do you love the star Or the shallow man? Strange how he justifies those nasty little quirks. Pretends to be different than all those other jerks. When you believe his artsy pose, it means you got the chance To see his band practice is just a groupie lap dance. But you can change him, you can save him, you know that he's yours. You can say that to yourself while he's walking out the door. Will you still feel the same after your love leaves you to choke On leftovers of guilt, liquor and smoke.

Dolls are perfect. They’re smooth and blemish-free. Dolls are at peace. They don’t have to breathe. Can peace be understood? Dolls don’t know resistance. Can death bring peace? They don’t have reason to think. Dolls like me When I don’t think Dolls like me When I don’t breathe An automaton Emotionless yet An auto-response pumps the heart Am I born into this? Who has done the programming? Things define my existence. I become my identity. If I was a doll, would worry cease? Comfort is my goal But I feel trapped. But I feel trapped. But I feel trapped…
