Track Name: Yo El Rey
scrape off all the paint delete the Don's request this will not repair yo el rey will dare break with the tradition given half the chance from Apollinaire read on Grecian flair all the applicants' fauvist colour scares you will draw their line they will draw their gun so long to the rest of you I'm my own son now as in Platonic so long to the rest of you I'm the one sun now not Ptolemaic scrape off all the paint delete the Don's request this will not repair yo el rey will dare break with the tradition given half the chance from Apollinaire read on Grecian flair harlequins will bear Avignon compare we will not repent we will not repent so long to the rest of you I'm my own son now as in Platonic so long to the rest of you I'm the one sun now not Ptolemaic
Track Name: The Eloquent Elephant
write in cafes on elegant fixtures a different pose in every picture are you ordering those to wash down the oysters or to drown out the prose and the dissonant voices of men in ties whose jealousies buy you whiskey and soda but don't turn your back on them they'll read your manuscript over your shoulder after the rains through elegant gardens then tracing the day to symbol and parchment the callous smiles and dishonesties buy you whiskey and soda but the joke is on them cause you write like a drunk even when you are sober to write a line and discover the light's a lie you've uncovered behind the veil the everyday curtain a painted array of elegant persons write in dismay write eloquent curses to drown out the clasp of opening purses now autographs and paperbacks buy you whiskey and soda but don't turn around though they're reading your manuscript they'll never know how to write a line and discover the light's a lie you uncover you can't survive bad weather the Paris life untethers
Track Name: Heliotrope
you're a figure you sway on a sunny afternoon you're a figure you sway on the air turn and vent your love for hydrogen I'll extend a petal from the stem there's a trigger and you turn on a sunny afternoon there's a trigger and you turn to the sun dear old friend I love your hydrogen I extend a petal from the stem sins that summer reset on a sunny afternoon they get dimmer and return to the earth
