The Spiral Eyes

by Peter Adams

the smoother ride is worth the price grass and dirt eat up the tires for me it's a matter of function nevermind the way it looks I go by the books beige and tan support the plan rising high to please the eye saving lots of money stick the poor in boxes of gray drive downtown without seeing land it says to me the glory of man my my my we are the species my my my to rule the earth far and wide we're paving everything pretty soon we'll pave the stars we can turn mars into a parking lot cover the sun its way too hot
I Evolve 04:06
when the fires did surround me you were by my side with your holy water hands and sparkling eyes we are not a prize at all we are just the end I was on the porch and you were hiding in the dark with the floorboards creaking and the house falling apart I evolve tonight when the iron city rusts and crumbles in the sea tiny dots and dying leaves will hover over me to the other shore and back sure I've found the end bitches on their broken chain of rusty party lines sew the halos on their heads and riot in their minds so count the bumps on your head where the palms are read I believe it when you say there is no way
i promise you my head's on straight and looking forward empires will fall in the sunken sky so meet me in your room and keep a light on inside I'm lost and gone in a dried up well that looks up at a smile in the clouds i climb the walls and comb the stars and wish the dinosaurs would come crashing through my door like fire and hate all in sunday suits one for me and one for you i will count the days wake me when the morning dies the water falls into pots and pans crooked on the wood paneled walls our rest will come when the storm is done but now the roof is leaking and the lights won't come on
forget to write and I will call you up at night and let it ring the morning sun it never bothered anyone but you might find it wise to close the blinds the more I sleep the less I like to use my feet they drag me down so after lunch why dont you come around and see why I cant eat at all why I cant even breathe how many bridges are we supposed to cross before we meet the boss the great escape it always seems to want to wait merry go round round and round and round tommorow the sorrow will be forgotten although I will remember how I fell upon the floor
Sleepwalker 02:35
Spiraling 05:12
Elevators 03:26


The debut album. When I wrote most of these songs, I was swimming in "Sgt. Pepper", "The Soft Bulletin", and anything by the Elephant 6 Collective. I wrote most of the album while I was still in college, and completed it over the months after I graduated. Purchase options include downloads in the format of your choice and CD.
