WATERFALLS

The farmers are all gathered digging words
The poets are all dried up in the shores
The beggars and the prophets
Are up against the walls
Splitting spoils

Deserts are becoming waterfalls

The it girl is there nowhere to be seen
I think I can recall her in a dream
The ads and suds and breakups
Have lost their aim and cause
Splitting jaws

Everything is washed down the waterfalls

The vowels won’t resonate the truth
The medicine sedate but they don’t soothe
The roads are paved with chewing gum
Burnt books and broken toys
For the boys

It’s only fair that I have my waterfalls

13 TRACKS

The wooden sheds
The fifteen racks you store your selves
The wooden shelves
The boxes where you lock your heads

I could not believe you even if you stripped me naked in the cold
I had to relieve you from the burden of the consciousness you sold

The twenty doors
The crouching witness on all fours
The twenty doors
Unwillingly unfold the sores

I could not believe you even if you stripped me naked in the cold
I had to relieve you from the burden of the consciousness you sold

I never saw you sympathise
Some stones feel nothing they improvise

The thirteen tracks
The tiny handles on your backs
The thirteen tracks
The manufacturing of facts

I could not believe you even if you stripped me naked in the cold
I had to relieve you from the burden of the consciousness you sold

Cheap tricks won’t help you realize
Can’t cut Goliath into size

WOULD

Don’t try more than necessary
Don’t become your thoughts of idle wood
Robin and Hood
Don’t cry more than necessary
Don’t envision future pastures nude
Your neighborhood

You know I would
I’d treat the cause; I’d cure the cause
Not the symptoms could

You know I would
I’d share your skin
I’d become your kin
You know I would

Shallow face and sunken eyes
I’ve seen the image shrunk in size it should
You know it should
Beaming glowing pales or dark reds
Smiles and hearts fitting in small heads
Jude, saints could be Jude

You know I would
I’d treat you right, I ‘d love you right yeah
You know I would

You know I would
I’d treat you right, I ‘d love you right
You know I would

I I I , I I I would
You know I would

Gradually my thoughts converting
I can no longer intrude
Silk smooth hair or barbed wire
I have passed the polygraph I’m through

You know I would
I’d treat you right, I ‘d love you right yeah
You know I would

You know I would
I’d treat you right, I ‘d love you right—
You know I would

A a a, Aa a a, would
You know I would

POLVO ENAMORADO

I’ll walk through walls to find you, I’ll wake up from the dead
I’ll swallow fires and cut the wires that tangle in your head
For you, for you, for you, for you

As she was leaning on the grave she was leaning on the grave
She was coming every day saying things she had to say
He was once a part of her he was once always around
She was breathing all the air he was breathing all the ground

He told her as in life, so in death so in all
Don’t be fooled by my skin my black bones look within

I will come for you
I will follow you
I won’t let you go
I want you to know

I’ll walk through walls to find you, I’ll wake up from the dead
I’ll swallow fires and cut the wires that tangle in your head
For you, for you, for you, for you

This was not some random noise this was not a random voice
All the tremble deep inside all the bleeding couldn’t hide
He was once a part of her he was once always around
She was breathing all the air he was breathing all the ground

She told him as is life so is death so is all
Don’t be fooled by my tears mourning dress all my fears

You cannot come back now
You cannot come back now
You can’t defy this sin
You belong to your kin

My soul strayed from my body all nature laws aside
I might be damned and not ascend but I can’t leave you behind
I’m here for you, for you, for you, for you

For you, for you

I’ll walk through walls to find you, I’ll wake up from the dead
I’ll swallow fires and cut the wires that tangle in your head
For you
