I have a few songs I'm thinking of throwing into the accidental pollinator hat. Once again, they were not written for accidental pollinator so they don't sound, exactly right, or even vaguely right. But who cares. I don't want them to just disappear into nothingness. Or maybe I do, I don't know, I liked them a bunch when I wrote them, but now I just feel oddly confused by them. Let me know if you like, or hate them passionately. ANd by "let me know" I mean, hey, people who are in the band "let me know." I apreciate all comments, but I'm not going to even bother working on them period if no one else in the band gives two shits, which is fine, but I need to know. Well, I don't need to know, but I guess I'd prefer to know.



“The Moment”

I had a moment to kill
and I figured what a thrill
it’d be to stand in one place
for a time
a long time
and look at the sky
with squinted and un-squinted eyes.
At flickering lights,
until I reassured myself
that this really is pointless.

You should try it some time,
pantomime.
Make a wish, blow a kiss
fall on your knees and watch night and day
pour into the seas and fade away
and it’s all okay.

It’s heavy on your shoulders and mine too
but that’s the price you pay to think like we do.
In the end you’ll be grateful, but for now
Just do your best to keep your eyes open
tear into your chest to keep your heart hopin’
that you’ll see.

You should try it some time,
pantomime.
Make a wish, blow a kiss
fall on your knees and watch night and day
pour into the seas and light the way
and it’s all okay.

Don’t think right at it.
When you see it.
It may hurt you
but you will believe it.
Just nod on by.
Don’t become it.
Just nod and nod and nod and nod and nod...

And it’s all okay, it’s all okay, it’s all okay, it’s all okay, to watch night and day pour into the seas and fade away.
Not about what you think it is either, I'm not THAT predictable.

“Sunshine”
Blossoming warmth, drips down my arms.
The rays shower over monster farms.
Monsters can be friends too, and monsters can be loved.
Monsters just like you and me, depend on the sun above.

I want to see the sun, I want to climb the stars
I want to see the sun, I want to climb the stars
I want to be the sun, I want to be a star.

The night is blanker then it looks.
Sunshine is the only thing that makes it bright.
Joy is something that only exists in books
one day we’ll all be made of sunlight.

I want to see the sun, I want to climb the stars
I want to see the sun, I want to climb the stars
I want to be the sun, I want to be a star.

One day I’ll see it. I’ll be it.
Climbing the ironic staircase
Dreaming of being in outer space.

Outer space may be dark
but inner space is darker.
No light, no air, no love, no care.
I need the sun there more then anywhere.

I want to see the sun, I want to climb the stars
I want to see the sun, I want to climb the stars
I want to see the sun, I want to climb the stars
I want to be the sun, I want to be a star.
I want to free the sun, I want to be that star.

I have no idea what the fuck is going on there.

“Chocolate”
Taking baby steps home.
Fixing what should be set in stone.
Memorial to absence, to a death we can’t accept.
Peaceful soldiers, whose tears will be forever wept.

Where are you?
Where are you?
You can hurt me to help you,
you can hurt me to save you.

Taking baby steps home.
I see the same image over and over again.
I take a breather and absorb the sound.
I clear the air and push on the ground
just a little more today, just a little more then yesterday.

Where are you?
Where are you?
Why did you leave me, what did I do?
Will you greave me? Will you miss me too?
You can hurt me to help you.
You can hurt me to save you.

I don’t want to go home anymore.
Wasting away.
I want to freeze to the trees, and die with the bees.
I want the snow to layer over me
and make a blanket to cover me,
and if you find me, we can sleep together,
in our bed together,
one more time, forever.
It will be so warm with you.

Where are you?
Where are you?
Will you find me now? Now that I know what to do?
Will you search for me? Will you hurt for me?
You can hurt me to help you.
You can hurt me to save you
I guess this song is sweet, but it also feels a little cheesy at this point. MAybe ALOT cheesy. I dunno.I find myself hating all of these.
