Joanna 04:04
Reach into my back pocket and what will you find? A stream of consciousness you won't be able to unwind. All my life I pick up pieces, stranded left behind. Put them together in my hands collect the times. You think I'm clever, but I don't know what that means. I'm just a walking current of forgotten dreams. You think I'm crazy, I don't have a name. I am your grandmother, your grandpa just the same. Oh Just the same, just the same.

Fibers 04:03
Twitch of hand. Anxious gait. Looking over your shoulder. Shift to the next seat. Change my gaze. Facing east. And I love pancakes hot on the skillet always never burn them. Mama are you there? I love pancakes hot on the skillet always never burn them. Mama are you there? Anxious gait. Twitch of hand. Looking over my shoulder. Shift to the the next seat. Change my gaze. Facing east.

I walk, I walk down the street Baby's got a lot cookin. In the pocket on the sun. Baby's got alot cookin. Oh in the sun. Baby's got alot brewin in the sun. And If you wonder what she's doin. If you wonder what she's doin. Just look at the sun. I got you in my hand. And I run and run. Where does the sound go? Where does the sound go? Where does it go?

Oh I used to be, a night cockroach, slitherin, all around Oh I used to be, a night cockroach, slitherin, all around I share my food with strangers, oh I share my food with strangers Oh I used to be, a night cockroach, Slitherin all around oh ah... I laugh, at the sound, of their screams as they see me oh, slitherin I laugh, at the sound, of their screams as they see me oh, slitherin I cry, all the time, every night oh I cry, all the time, every night cause I can never be seen, in the light cause I can never be seen, in the light in the light, in the light, in the light

I know what you are I know what you are Im runnin up hill Runnin up hill Out of breath from the other steps I'm runnin up hill Runnin up hill Out of steps from the other breaths And like a dust floating in circles in the wind I'll keep, wandering And I'll say I know what you are I know what you are And I grab a handful of walnuts And they taste bitter like, my mouth I like to match my personality to the taste buds that come in and out, out I know what you are I know what you are What you are I know what you are My feeble body wants to be strong and brave My feeble body wants to be strong and brave So I'll take off all of my hair And I'll walk bravely over there And I'll speak my mind like I got one worth listening to oh and I'll say I, I, I know what you are.
