Track Name: Benjamin on the Corner
I've lived a dozen summers
I'm feeling fine
I'm growing older
I got goodness on my mind

I've lived for fourteen summers
And I'm stuck in my own head
Gotta get out of my head

Benjamin on the corner
Serving up the sweets
If you're a friend
You'll get a scoop for free
But you didn't hear that from me

They say there's something out there
Something to be seen
They say it's waiting for me
In the forest green
So I'll stand on the edge
With the shadows on my feet
I'll venture forward
Off into the leaves

I've lived for sixteen summers
I'm feeling high
Got no commitments
The present's on my mind

I've lived for eighteen summers
Again I'm feeling low
I'm far from home

Benjamin on the corner
Serving up the sweets
If you're a friend
You'll get a scoop for free
Benjamin on the corner
Serving up the sweets
If you're a friend
You'll get a scoop for free
Track Name: Down ft. Djembe Jones
Another hit
Another sip
Another glance to your lips

Another joke
Let's have a smoke
I want to speak
But I might choke

If you just thought
To talk to me
I'd make you smile
I swear you'd see

That I'm not here
To mess around
I'm telling you:
I am down

Hit the sink on east side
Took it to Takoma Place
Walkin' slow, a dreary day
Better be on my way

Walking faster; got to be on time
Walking slower; if I could catch my mind

Another hit
Another sip
Another glance to your lips

Another joke
Let's have a smoke
I want to speak
But I might choke

If you just thought
To talk to me
I'd make you smile
I swear you'd see

That I'm not here
To mess around
I'm telling you:
I am down

Making moves is easy
Making talk; not so much
Feeling nervous
Oh, but liquor comes in clutch

Now my lips are moving
In fact; I can't seem to shut up
I don't know, should I just go home?
Should I give up?

Dancing faster; got to move on time
Dancing slower; If I could catch your eye

Another hit
Another sip
Another glance to your lips

Another joke
Let's have a smoke
I want to speak
But I might choke

If you just thought
To talk to me
I'd make you smile
I swear you'd see

That I'm not here
To mess around
I'm telling you:
I am down
Track Name: Sop (phone-call to a friend) ft. small dad
I'm not sure exactly what it is about her
It's so strange, I just feel so nervous when she's around
it's like she's a ghost
it's like she's a ghost

I don't wanna talk about it
I don't wanna talk about it
I just wanna lay in bed,
Garden thoughts inside my head

I don't wanna talk about it
I don't wanna talk about it
I just wanna be alone
'Till my hair is overgrown
'Till my hair is overgrown
Track Name: Art Man
Let's make some art, man
We gotta start man
I got a paint brush
I got a paint can
Let's make a sculpture
Let's make a film
A diarama
Let's write a drama

Come on Art Man,
Show me your stuff
You've got your hair grown long
But that ain't enough
I wanna see your soul bleed
Before there's paint on your brush
I wanna see your soul bleed
I want to see it gush
Track Name: Still Life
Is life ever gonna take you there;
where your heart's not hungover,
and your fortune is fair?

It's still life
even when it don't feel that way
and it'll pass you by
so let it take you away

(can't stop talking, can you?)

Track Name: Son / The Dream Remembered
I want you to know;
I'm taking it slow,
There is no hurry here

I'll go to bed
Once I clear my head
And remember that you are near

One cat by my side
My eyes open wide
This night will be a sleepy ride

I'm waiting to wake;
For another day
And it will always be that way

What is the purpose of a son?
Will you be my friend when the day is done?
What is the purpose of a son?
My friends, my friends, my friends, where have you gone?
Where have you gone?
