Track Name: Cinematographer (Will Oldham)
I am a cinematographer.
And I walked away from New York City,
And I walked away from everything that's good,
And I walked away from everything I lean on
Only to find
It's made of wood.
I was a big ol' bear once.
And I walked away from California,
And I walked away from everything that's shown,
And I walked away from everything I live for
Only to find
Everything has grown.
I am cinema.
I am cinema
tog
rapher.
Track Name: Wild (Adel Bengo)
No such thing
as wild horses anymore.
Their elders were tamed or were given
the most care.
The ones we call wild
are just these children
from those the broke free
or were
abandoned,
forced to learn how to be wild again.
So are there such things
as wild horses in our time,
and where can I find
that wildness again?
Track Name: Leaving Song #2, or, Go Ahead! Name a Place!
I drove to Asheville.
I drove to Nashville.
I drove to Houston.
I drove to Boston.
I drove to NEW YORK CITY!
Goddamn it was pretty.
Everywhere I went
I could hardly believe
I was already there,
so I had to leave.
I drove to Dead Horse.
I drove to God's Word.
I drove to Great Circle.
I drove to Groveland.
I drove to Clearview,
and I never thought about you.
I drove to Albany.
I drove to Calgary.
Let me tell you something
you just wouldn't believe
you can travel all around this world
but you can never really leave.
Track Name: (dreadful instrumental, or, name another place)
ooooooooooooooooooo
Track Name: Pain Waves (Zap Dragon and the Attack)
I found a way to lie.
Don't hold your heart in your hands.
I found a way to lie.
Don't wear those thoughts on your head.
There you go you're right back at it again.
So you say you hate this town
and you can't stand anyone around.
So you smoke all night
'til you can't breathe,
when you wake up in the morning
you're the one you hate to see.
I found a way to lie.
Don't think of them as your friends.
There you go you're thinking of them again.
There you go you're thinking of her again.
You better learn to lie or you're gonna get hurt again.
Track Name: Dim Mountains
There are massive things piling up in my brains
and my tongues too weak to move these dim mountains to speak
You move through weightless things but I see you've got brains.
I know it hurts you to know everything you do
is all meaningless. You don't want this.
Meaning less ness.

I am no one's judge
and no one is mine because
we see what we see
but we will never see completely.

So do what you think is right or just try to get by
Cuz it's all a beautiful waste of time
It's all we got and that's just fine. Hey!

There may be more, there may be not
but none of this will ever be for naught.
Because even if it's all meaningless
everything I do means everything to me. Hey!
Track Name: Get Drunk with Me
Do you want to get drunk with me?
It's funny
how altered states of mind make restless minds like ours
feeeeeeeeel fine.
I'm just looking for a temporary peace.
Just looking for a way to un-grit my teeth.
Do you want to get drunk with me?
Let's compare the sizes of our growing ulcers.
We can share the dull pain that's been growing in our temples.
I can say you have the cutest dimples.
You can say "I think you've had enough"
Do you want to get drunk with me?
We can play N64 on floor and drink some more
despite what you said. Aha! You're so dead.
Cuz I just got the blue shell. Donkey Kong I'll see you hell.
We're all going to hell. It's just as well.
This world is so beautiful, but I can't tell without my beer goggles.
So let's walk to Winn-Dixie and get the finest bottle Winn-Dixie has to offer.
We can blot out the whole world. Who needs the whole world.
Anyway.
It's never been good to us.
Track Name: Call It What You Want (Zap Dragon and the Attack)
How much do you know you?
I'll bet the farm it's less than you think that you do.
How much do you like yourself?
I'll take a guess and say far less than everyone else.
Cuz nobody knows anything about anyone.
Everyone thinks they're god or someone.
How much do you know you?
I'll bet the farm it's more than you wish that you knew.
How much do you like yourself?
I know the answer but I'll just keep it to myself.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph
What wonderful poets.
They call it non-fiction
but I've never talked to a snake.
Call it what you want.
I'll keep calling you fake.

Keep counting those cards.
Keep mapping those stars.
You'll find out something is very wrong.
Track Name: Roof-Access
Waltz in through the back,
ignore the employees only sign.
I'm gonna fill up my pack
with everything that I can find.
Everything I own is ugly and I like it that way.
Cuz everything I've seen with that shine and sheen
just turned out to be fake.
Before I dive any deeper than this I've gotta come up for a breath.
I'm wandering the halls of the Student Union looking for roof access.
I steal down dim lit halls.
I am gonna shake and scare these walls.
I will melt down the crown
by burning the fucking palace down.
If they catch me,
the peasants will scream for my head,
and if they never catch me
they'll still get their sweet bread.
Before I dive any deeper than this I've gotta come up for a breath.
I'm wandering the halls of your future office looking for roof access.
I wanna see the people shuffle around in miniature scale.
I wanna see the sky stare down, put me in microscopic scale.
I could scream and have nothing to say.
I think it's time I listen hear what they say.
Put the yardstick away.
Nothing's small, it's just far away.
Track Name: Find Something to Find
I've got to find
something to find
everyday
in any way it comes. It comes.
I don't call the shots
nobody does.
You just get what you got
and you got it because.
There's no allegory.
There's just a story
you walked in on.
Track Name: Go
Where you gonna go?
What're you gonna see?
What are you gonna do?
Who ate you gonna be?

??????????????????
Track Name: I'll Go
I'll go I'll see what ever this place has got for me.
I'll know I'll be what ever I have got for me.
I am arriving at something I was there all along.
I am becoming something I was all along.

The sun shines off your face.
I am floating in space.
The sun shines off your face.
I've been running in place.

I'll go I'll see what ever this place has got for me.
I'll know I'll be what ever I have got for me.
I am arriving at something I was there all along.
I am becoming something I was all along.

Everything is the best it could ever be. x3
And I am so happy that you found me.

I'll go I'll see what ever this place has got for me.
I'll know I'll be what ever I have got for me.
I am arriving at something.
I am becoming something.
I have something here right now.
And I've got...
I'll go I'll be whatever I've got for me.
Track Name: Uhh dell ss sh ooze, or, Walking Song #1/2
And the day will come
And I'll step into my shoes
And I will walk
And I know real soon
The holes in my shoes will tear
And I'll step out into
A brand new pair
And I will lope along
Without a sense of urgency
And it don't bother me
It don't mean a thing
My car is falling all apart
I know real soon
It'll just be me in the street
With a steering wheel in my hands
And I will stand and let go
And I will walk.
And I will be spinning and crazy and
It don't bother me
And I will be spinning, approaching and
It don't mean a thing.
It don't mean a thing.
