Track Name: The World's Watery Face Part 1
The World makes me cry
But my tears are not public
Rivers...
They often go unseen
And make no difference
To the World...
Track Name: Effajeniah Penelope
Who holds the keys to all the locks?
Who winds the springs on all the clocks?
Who puts the rings in all the bells?
Who spells the words that cast the spells?
Who knows the way through all our brains?
Who twists the rope and links the chains?

Effajeniah Penelope
You've been doing things you don't want your mother to see
You better remember what your momma said
She's got eyes in the back of her head

Who blows the horns on Satan's head?
Who puts the holes in whole wheat bread?
Who pulls the strings that make us dance?
Who puts the ants down in our pants?

Effajeniah Penelope
You've been doing things you don't want your mother to see
You better remember what your momma said
She's got eyes in the back of her head
Track Name: Half Passed
This is no way to end
But a good place to start
There’s a cloud in the sky
And it’s shaped like a heart

You don’t know where you’re going
Until you know where you’ve been
Till the years start showing
Through the lines on your skin

No mistakes for Heaven sakes you're
Drawing lines in the Sands of time

Half past eight
You're sitting on the Hands of fate
Half past ten
You missed it again
Half past nine
You're sitting on the Hands of time
Half past four
You chose the wrong door

There's a cloud in your heart
And it's shaped like the sky
The world's spinning round
In the tear in your eye

What’s the price of success?
A pound or an ounce?
Don’t mind the weight
It's the volume that counts

Cherubim and Seraphim and
Little lambs eat Ivy

If you focus on one
The others are blurred
The seeds of your fruit
Should be seen but not heard

There's a cloud in the sky
But it's only pretend
This is no way to start
But a good place to end

The painted stork Strikes the tuning fork in the
Waning moon with a Runcible spoon
Track Name: The World's Watery Face Part 2
The World makes me cry
But my tears are not public
Rivers...
They often go unseen
And make no difference
To the World...

...But sometimes I make the World cry
Tears well up in the eyes of mountains
Turning dry hollows into brimming pools
Trickling through slender lashes of grass
They moisten the dimpled cheeks of the hills
They slide between the bony features of the landscape
Swelling the fleshy earth
But the World cries too much
It overwhelms me with it's emotional rivers
When I observe it's watery face
My vision is distorted
