Track Name: Snow Tunnels
"Snow Tunnels" by Chonk

the simplest things seem infinitely complex
when you dissect them with your mind
take the time to look inside
close your eyes and take a ride
fractal designs morph, warp, and divide
turn inside out and intertwine

snowflakes falling in your brain
your head is a mountain and your heart is a train
but I don't want to ride alone
been a long, long time that i've been on my own
I jump into her eyes and I'm at home, home
on and on and on we roam . . .

so you think you can comprehend
a pattern with no beginnin' or end?
can you find an equation
to put a lid on the infinite?

Specks in a droplet crystalize
Blow open the clouds fill up the sky
She burrows tunnels in the snow
Just to see if she can find a lawn to mow
Her eyes are a beacon when they glow, glow
On and on and on we go

the diffuse reflection of the spectrum of light
makes a clear snowflake appear white
you might as well be a snowball in hell
if you're gonna veg out your whole life
Take the time to step outside
climb up a tree trunk that you find
feast your eyes on the wrapping vines
Stare up at the stars, look back in time

snowflakes fallin', frozen rain
your head is a mountain and your heart is a train
but I don't want to ride alone
been a long long time that i've been on my own
I jump into her eyes and I'm at home, home
on and on and on we roam...
on and on and on we roam...
on and on and on we roam...
on and on and on we roam...

Track Name: Pinecone
Spiny and spirally
Sappy and fiery
Pinecones (pinecones)
Our bodies felt warm beside the flame
Crunchy and pokey,
ya burn them they're smokey
they're pinecones (pinecones)
The ash in the air spelled out her name

And they twist, and they roll
and they'll conify your soul
Found a pinecone, that was glowing through the scales
Was a hell of a ride when we dared to crawl inside
All colors and visions whizzin' by
And the alien sang
In a cozy southern twang
"Embrace love,
Everything else is a shame"

Awoke in a flurry,
We left in a hurry
That pinecone (pinecone)
I thought we had left it in the snow
Got back to our pad
She reached her bag
There's that pinecone (pinecone)
And it's glowing even brighter than before

And when we jumped in
Pine needles poked our skin
Burning tree sap enveloped us alive
But before we could cry
Demon birds pecked out our eyes
We were sure that we'd met our demise
Then the alien said
with a pitchfork to our heads
Return the pinecone
or soon you'll both be dead

Woke up in a terror
We realized our error
That pinecone (pinecone)
Belonged in the woods, that was its home
And so we returned it
And then we burned it
The pinecone (pinecone)
Turned to ash
As the fire warmed our bones

(Instrumental)

As we kissed in the night
we knew the alien was right
Embrace love
but don't hold on too tight
Track Name: Home Is Where The Car Is
Home is where the car is
It's never far it's under the stars at night
I roam just like a gypsy
Been gettin’ ripped see in' all the sites
Hula girl shakin’ on the dashboard
Where did you learn to shake so nice
Starin’ deep into that hula girls eyes
She started singin’ about her home on the Kona side
Next thing I know there's a semi comin’ head on
I swerve just in time to fly off into the sky
Off the rocks, past some trees
Through the clouds, straight up into the breeze
Yeah, cruisin now, God knows where
But I'm with my little hula girl way up in the air
I said a Hooooooooooo

Home is where the sky is
Cause that's where I is
In my CRV
My phone began a'chimin
My buddy Simon wants to talk to me!
But I ain't tryin to die today
Talkin’ on the phone while driving just ain't safe
Ttyl…. I'm busy man!
Diddlin' that hula girl with my free hand
Just then... a gust of wind.. blows like hell
throws me into a spin
Into a spiral down toward the ground
Oh shit that's water! Hope I don't drown
The Pacific Ocean is mighty cold
But the cars air tight and I'm ready to go..
And I say, Hooooooooooooo

Home is where the where the car is
Down with the starfish
where the sun don't shine
I roll slow with my high beams
Lickin on an ice cream
Looking for a sign
hula girl playin a tune so sweet
Don't even mind that I can't feel my feet
She moves toward me, batting her eyes
Puckered up her lips, imagine my surprise
When a giant tentacle popped out from the black
Wrapped around my car and threw us both right back
Onto that good ole trusty HWY 1
Keep driving north and watch that settin' sun
The moral this story folks, I ain't sho'
But I'll... keep a blowin down that dusty road!
Beep beep, a-hoooooooooooooo
