Track Name: L.A. River Song
there's a river runs through the city that I live in
there's a river runs through the city that I know

there's a shopping cart in the river in my city
there's a lone rain boot that lost its only friend
there're a thousand birds in the river in my city
they may be the only ones who know where my river ends

there are real live fish in the river in my city
there are matted plastic bags, now one with little trees
there's an unpaved stretch of the river in my city
what's buried underneath the rest may stay a mystery

"i wouldn't touch that water in the river in your city"
that's what some people say, they worry about health
that's lifeblood there, that's the river in my city
and though it isn't safe, still it flows downstream

once I took a trip and saw another city
the river there was full of swimming kids
there were turtles too in the river in that city
I knew I was not alone, and I jumped right in

there's a river runs through the city that I live in
there's a river runs through the city that I know
there's a river runs through the city that I live in
there's a river runs through the city that I love
Track Name: Didn't Care
i'm in among deep water
i don't know if it shows
i'll roll around beneath the waves
i'm wearing all of my clothes
i can feel my heart beat
i don't know if i'm cold
i'll break things 'til the water flows
and then i'm goin home

i didn't care about that, didn't care about that

my eyes are looking here are there
i fell into a hole
i don't know which way's right or up but down, yeah, down i know
i can't lie here forever
i'd lie here if i could
if you asked me now i'd tell you that my brain is made of wood

i didn't care about that, didn't care about that

i'm trapped here, that is certain
though no walls hold me in
the flames are lapping closer now
all i can do is spin
i don't forget they're pretty
my eyes are open wide
if i shut them i'd see such a glow, i wouldn't know if i died

i didn't care about that, didn't care about that

i feel my body jerk about
and then i taste the wind
i see the world enlarging now
and i can't feel my limbs
everything's connected
and i can take it in
i let the sunlight kiss my face
i feel my life begin
Track Name: Broken Dollar
my mind on this, knock into a shade of that
i see through you
is that a fact?
i don't forget, but still i leave behind
i roll through you
dragged along inside my mind

broken dollar
halfway broken mirror
put 'em on my altar and play the good forgiver
found a new word
a new word has found me
and i'll throw away the past if it will be done with me

i didn't know too many things to hold the light
to say a name
to give up something with a fight
if i told you know that i choose to be happy
would you believe me?
i wonder

my castle cares
my winding backwards haul
my see-through shoes
it's all slowing to a crawl
i get the seal and i slap it on the goods
i do my job
am i too blind to see the truth?

i didn't know too many things to hold the light
to say a name
to give up something with a fight
if i told you know that i choose to be happy
would you believe me?

i didn't know too many things to hold the light
to say a name
to give up something with a fight
now i'm alone and i'm bright
i can't be found
but now i know to wail
i make a frightful sound
