Track Name: Fire Hymn
Fire Hymn
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

What's him's gonna do?
Popped the weasel into solitude
'Cause they're scared to run and they cannot hide
The darkness bleeding from the other side
When they piece together the cover page
To complete the truth from which the money's made
And the facts are colored and the stories fake
Long before the people ever get their fair shake

Lean to the right
Lean to the wrong
Sundays life
Won't be there
Forever

It's only takes one rotten apple
To model how to use your power
While mothers nurse their growing seed
To saturate the common need

What's him's gonna do?
Popped the weasel into solitude
Because the junk-man's picking up the slack for you
While the only thing that matters is the check came through
The message said that we are not in tune
With the ants and trees and the cockatoo
Meet the newly elected
The tried and true
The bugs are going to have their way with you
Forever

It's only takes one rotten apple
To model how to abuse your power
While mothers nurse their growing seed
To saturate the common need

What's him's gonna do?
Track Name: No Plaster
No Plaster
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

This is a cold wood floor
My feet feel cold

From the slat-less ceiling
Drips, drop cold.

Supplied with only the best
The other times were worse
The Police are really hard to beat
Mommy yells it's time to eat

You didn't think you were
Drunk as you were
You didn't think you were
As stoned as you were

Drape the plastic
Water gymnastics
Track Name: Exotic Bird
Exotic Bird
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

You turn me on exotic bird
You make me feel so high
You make me lose my mind

Hot as the sun
Sweet as honey (my love)
Sing your sweet birdsong to me
But I'm lost inside your song
It's a beautiful
You're moonlit face shines light over me
Or just maybe I'm stoned

You turn me on exotic bird
You make me feel so high
You make me lose my mind
Track Name: In The Nighttime
In The Nighttime
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

Before the night is done
I'll check the system
And in the nighttime
There ain't no sunshine.

I tugged the handle of the utility drawer
A mouse jumped out and landed right there
Upon the floor

And when the day is done
With all the wisdom
And in the nighttime
When there's no sunshine

All things are quiet now the curtain's still drawn
The moonlight calms me down and soothes me
Before the dawn
Track Name: Rainforest Sweep
Rainforest Sweep
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

Bad news
It was so hard to predict
Good girl twirling on a swizzle stick
Looks like a storm cloud's is moving in

Keep it clean
Pull the last of the shutters
Rainforest sweep hit the lights in the cellar

Rain turned to mist
Panting, licking fingertip
All of the people say:
"Evil is back and it's here to stay"

Take the path
Through the wood and the grass
Over rivers wide to the ocean tide
Part the mist and see my hand
Rainforest sweep
They took away my land
So I won't fight

All the light to be seen in a way
Will be back to life on another day
Bad news for the unselected
You'll be kicked out, roughed up
Anyway
Track Name: Night Rhodes
Instrumental
Track Name: More Than Enough
More Than Enough
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

Turn the floodlights off
I can see you well enough
Put your sunglasses on the back of your head
Before you walk in wipe your feet
Come in and sit
Let us sit down to eat
We've all got
More than enough
Germs to go around
Track Name: Staring Contest With A Psychic Cow
Staring Contest With A Psychic Cow
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

(Staring contest with a psychic cow)
The golden light from the silvery disk
Smoke rolling out from your finger tips
Monkey see and monkey do
We don't know what you're going through
Look in my eyes and concentrate
Letting the cows decide your fate
Tarot cards and hippy shit
Don't be afraid I'll be back in a bit.
Follow me down a dark hallway
Mexican pop for the holidays
Wanna get up but I'm just too weak
It happened to my girl just the other week

I've got no problem with a stare down
As long as it isn't with a cow
I think of them all when I'm falling asleep
Don't bother me when I'm counting sheep

New hot pants in a mason jar
I wanna walk home but I know it's too far (It's way too far)
Playing the soundtrack that is your life
Everything you want, you've had to fight for (It's way too far)
You grew up smart and well adjusted
Discovered the lie, you never trusted
Nodding off, you're starting to cough
Got something here that will help you lots

I've got no problem with a stare down
As long as it isn't with a cow
I think of them all when I'm falling asleep
Don't bother me when I'm counting sheep
Track Name: Euro (Moi Ou Toi)
Euro (Moi Ou Toi)
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

I am the operator on the phone
I am the piston and the shaft
I am the color of Rome
I'm like ammonia and bleach
I'm just a...

I am the bullwhip smacking your ass
I am the magic trick disbelief
I am the vertical hold
I'm like the meat in the seat
I'm just a...

A simple pleasure exhaustingly divine
The wheels in motion begin to synchronize
(he he)
I am separate
I am the weight that keeps you from floating away

I am the lover that is never alone
I am the little spaces in between
I have been noodling for trout
I play canasta and cheat
Track Name: God, When It's Lovey Dove
God, When It's Lovey Dove
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

I had a thought but I wasn't dressed right
To open the door from the inside
You never know who's coming by
Living so close to the road

Beware of the vicious
(Jesus answered and said unto him)
'Cause I need nutrition
My life is like a secret mission
There's a plan laid out for me

And the way I feel
The drugs won't help me now
As time goes on
I wonder,
Will the well run dry?

(Solo)

I got a sheet of plastic
The kind that you'd buy in a store

Thank you very kindly my delicate friend
I can see that you like it when it's lovey dove

And today it feels
Like the summer has ended now
As things moves faster
Let me stop to rest my eyes

Drive home late
On the very same day
As the hurricane splashed
On a carjack saint in the rain
Track Name: The Moisturizing Aquifer Resurfaced
The Moisturizing Aquifer Resurfaced
(Brodie Rush) copyright 2014

Caught it in the day for the sleepy sun
Gave it to the night
Left it for the moon

See me darling
I'm blue
Leaving here soon
She'll take me
Loving her tomb
Here I am

Saved it from the tide
You may never see it come
Faces in the dark
Always find you there

See me darling I'm blue
Leaving here soon
She'll take me
Loving her too
Here I am

Drifting through the garden fence
To captivate the dirty boy's
(passing all the time)
Expensive telescope and hear
The truckers going by
Moisturize

By the way
Your mothers gone (Oh your mother's gone... bye)
To see if you've been bitten by the fly (fly etc.)
Beautifully posed
Resurfacing (Let the blood flow)
Throughout the cities to enlighten the world
And feel the love
To prove we're all as one
