i could choose a quick and easy way out or i could choose to be or i could choose to see beyond the white paint chip brick walls that enclose me in the moist cool cellar and bar me from experiencing the life affirming heat of summertime or i could choose to destroy those wall, devalue the national currency, and detach myself and live forever lying naked in an open mountain field

I don't want to sit on the side lines I don't want to waste all my time I don't want to get shot in the head by some punk with no street cred I don't want to think about the end I don't want to wait around till then I don't want to fill the air with smoke, so that all the children choke I don't want to build a million stars I don't want to drink the tab at bars I don't want to douse my brother flames if i did it would be a shame I don't want to light the blow up I don't want to push with the shove I don't want to have to tell you again, I just want to hold your hand i just want to hold your hand as walk through the lands

great falls wash away the ground bunny hop away now you're safe and sound but not to the south that is where you’ll drown and the north is barbed, fenced, and guarded by a hound wire cutters could vivisect the lie or we could just grow wings and fly the dessert moat is the place that we’ll die if just let loose and cry wire cutters could vivisect the lie or we could just grow wings and fly the dessert moat’s not the place that we’ll die if all we do is let loose and try

Halo 04:57
sometimes i like to put on a halo put on a halo and fly but i just seem to sit down and lay low sit down and law low and die sometimes i like to put on a halo put on a halo and fly but i just seem to sit down and lay low sit down and law low and die i saw her singing there pale beacon skin and dark black despair i could tell from her raven hair at stake was my heart so rare at stake was my heart so rare sometimes i like to put on a halo put on a halo and fly but i just seem to sit down and lay low sit down and law low and die sometimes i like to put on a halo put on a halo and fly but i just seem to sit down and lay low sit down and law low and die and you know that i'll see her \there and you know that i'll see her there gone will be her raven hair replaced with a circle flair and on her back wings in a pair i want to go to mexico, where the ice is clear and the water is cold i want to go to mexico, where the ice is clear and the water is cold i want to go to mexico, where the ice is clear and the water is cold i want to go to mexico, where the ice is clear and the water is cold i want to go to mexico, where the ice is clear and the water is cold i want to go to mexico, where the ice is clear and the water is cold i want to go to mexico, where the ice is clear and the water is cold sometimes i like to put on a halo put on a halo and fly but i just seem to sit down and lay low sit down and law low and die sometimes i like to put on a halo put on a halo and fly but i just seem to sit down and lay low sit down and law low and die

i once had this friend and for his sake we'll call him ken he used to run and talk with deer he told them about his fear they told him to stop being silly and not to work about the end i once was eating my food while i was reading a book by vonnegut but before i got to use ice nine the book slipped from these hands of mine oh the symbolism is pretty hard to refute the universe won't and its not out of our reaches to quit our jobs find a farmer's market and buy some peaches we'll hit the road move out west in an used rv and spend the rest of our lives as electricity

the universe is expanding at quite an alarming rate all the light galaxies pulsars are leaving, its their fate as the years drift by we grow so much further apart but must our hearts be stars or could our hearts be new starts i don't want to be hydrogen yearning for a black hole's pull when all the time is gone i will be yearning still we're not on a cold iron rock floating in the unknown dark we have the greenest grass the bluest skies and we're orbiting the warmest spark i don't want to lead a life of isolation just to pretend to be free every morning when i wake up i choose to have you pulling on me i don't want to lead a life of isolation just to pretend to be free every morning when i wake up i choose to have you pulling on me

Still 05:12
let's smile wide for the love of man hold out our haggard empty hands throw revolt against car care walls adorn mourning and carry palls lets sell our fights and pet a rat greet ourselves with a welcome mat unlock the doors let answers fly do the numbers and simplify lets use our heads and think a bit forget that our world reeks of shit hit the hills find the last green glen lie in the dirt and hear the plan i woke on one tepid morning, your pale skin was still glimmering i could tell last night it was storming, your frail frame was still shivering for some time the rain now's been been pouring, neath the quilt were still quivering but i hear a pleasant past is roaring, the silver spark is still shimmering

i need a drink to get me through the night i need a drink to make feel alright i need a drink so that i can talk to you i need a drink so i can feel more blue i could pick myself up, but i'd just let myself down i need a drink so my hands don't shake i need a drink cuz you said you were late i need a drink so i’m ragged company i need a drink so we'll be sorry for me i could pick myself up but i'd let myself down i need a drink so i can't survive i need a drink how else can i drink and drive i need a drink for the brevity of life i need a drink for an eternity of strife i could pick myself up but i'd let myself down i could pick myself up but i’m way too down

the screams you hear are just the clock i'll break its gears squash our fears and we'll forget that morning nears but when the sun does appear i think that i have a good idea let's go to the ice cream shop get a split with cherries on top you’ll be the empress and get a root beer float and i’ll be your king and order us a coke let's go to the ice cream shop i wish that stupid clock would just stop it's ticking away counting the day reminding me you’re going away i wish it'd fly to Paraguay before you go though i'd like to say let's go to the ice cream shop get a split with cherries on top you’ll be the empress and get a root beer float and i’ll be your king and order us a coke let's go to the ice cream shop

about

Jakuta and Carl Washington D.C., D.C.

Jakuta and Carl was founded in the past. They may exist in the future. Right now they are in a state of limbo. They like traveling, yet they don't. They like recording, yet they don't. They make music that is electroacoustic expressions of the current frustrating climate [which is warm, very warm, both in the heart and air]. List, end, joy! ... more
