about

Dry River Yacht Club Phoenix, Arizona

Sailing Musicians upon a yacht,
upon the seas we sailed.
When one day sailing on board our ship,
through a storm we had to prevail.
The storm took us and threw us,
and tossed us around.
It bumped us and blew us.
It soaked us and shook us.
It grabbed us until…
The storm threw us into a dried river made of salt,
And there we remain still.

Track Name: Dead Mother Dearest
One night through an open window crack
Abruptly creeped in a cat
He started speaking to him
The one with all his containers stacked

How do you know my mother died
From the vermin that live in the house inside, inside
We know how your mother died from the vermin that lived in the house Inside, inside

Another part of the story to tell
A mans mother can buy a type of mouse
What a deadly thing to let reside
What an ugly way to loose your life

We've got a proposition for you
And you can do all the things you want to

We've got a proposition for you
And you an do all the things you want to

If you just let is un for a while
We'll have the rodents blood paint the tile
But in return we ask you to collect our dead
To restore once more the pride on your families stead

When pretty little kitty little kitty came in
When pretty little kitty little kitty came in

She brought all her friends
She brought all her friends

And pretty little kitty little kitty came in

When pretty little kitty little kitty came in
When pretty little kitty little kitty came in

She brought all her friends
She brought all her friends

And they all ate the fat of the land

They feasted full with their bellies fat
They filled their part of the house contract
What a deadly thing to let reside
What an ugly way to loose your life
Track Name: Pockets Full of Gold
And if all my pennies were made of gold
If everything I held could last forever, that I would hold
If everything I needed wasn’t broken
If everything I wanted wasn’t spoken for
If all my pennies were made of gold
Was there something I forgot to add
To all these thousands of things that I possess
Without you the dullness sets and things, well,
They do not shine
So its all for nothing
No nothing
And if all my tarnish rags, they weren’t rusted and old
Said, said, said if all my pennies were made of gold
Fabric and clocks
Socks and the batteries
Beads in the bird seed
Pricing tags,
Buttons, ties, and hats
If all my pennies, they were made of gold
Was there something I forgot to add
To all these thousands of things that I possess
Without you the dullness sets and things, well,
They do not shine
So its all for nothing
No nothing
I got lots of patterns
I got lots of ticky tacky tape
I got lots of games to play
I got lots of change to scrape
I got lots of the creepy dolls
And more
If they were, were made of gold
Said, said, said
Said if all my pennies they were made of gold
Made of gold, made of gold, made of gold
Was there something I forgot to add
To all of these thousands, and thousands, and,
And thousands
Without you the dullness sets and things, well,
They do not shine
So its all for nothing
Nothing, well nothing
Nothing,
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Track Name: The Legend of El Tigre
Along one day while walking down the street,
Where I usually take my feet,
Do you know what a stranger said to me?
She said,”girl i caught you dancing.”
And in my heart i knew this was something
As we moved into slow motion
And everything seemed like a foreign language
I knew we would end up together
And then, she took my hand
And my heart started beating with anticipation,
Into my throat, and i started to choke,
As my palms were getting wetter
And in my heart i knew this was something
As we moved into slow motion
And everything seemed like a foreign language
A knew we would end up together
Amore, amore
Amore wanna be with me
Amore wanna be with me
Amore wanna be
Amore wanna be with me
I got a bed, its six feet tall and we can dream together
I’ll plant ‘em down with the dirt and worms
So they can grow
And grow
And grow
And grow
And grow!
Track Name: Novella de Caníbal
When I think of winter
I think of your chill
Cold and ever present
With us through our years together
With you and your human palate

It's the flesh that your feeding me

I found the clothes
The magazines and the recipes
I found the bones
I found the teeth
Underneath our wooden floor

I had to leave
I had to leave
Before he came after me
And when he did
I lunged the knife
And returned it bloody

It's the flesh that your feeding me

I held his sleeves,
As he looked at me
On his knees
Stabbed and bloody

And with the knife
I learned how to clean
The meat off the body

They'll know I did it
I got to get rid of
The evidence
So I got out his human recipe
And followed it perfect

Flesh

First boil the bones in water
To create a broth
Simmer and simmer them
Till all the meat falls off

Chop up the onions and garlic
Celery
Lots of potatoes, tomatoes,
And lima beans

Then throw the human meat in
To some vegetable oil
Add the onions and celery
Sauté it for awhile
Then add the meat broth
And bring it to a boil
Let it simmer for two half hours
Add the following
Two carrots and one apple juice
Two flour and cold water table spoons
To many years did you kill to feed
To many
And now its ready


I grinded his bones
So I could throw them into the flower bed
How little did I know then
About the human flesh addiction

They'll know I did it
Now I cant stop it
The aftermath
And so hence my cannibal novella
Here has started
Track Name: Garden
We started a garden
And we're planting it together
We got strawberries and lavender
To sweeten up the soil

And you kidnapped those ladybugs
Way up on the mountain top
You relocated them with love
To help our garden grow

And I love you
I, I really need you
I know you need me too
Cause we complement each others beings
I really love you
I know you love me too

And that good ole dog you found,
Way outside that mexican town
You lifted his soul off the ground
And filled it with your love

And dang ole cat I got
She picked me out
Whether I wanted it or not
She needed love
Like me and you

And I love you
I, I really need you
I know you need me too
Cause we complement each others beings
I really love you
I know you love me too
Track Name: Pollen
Broken flowers on the wall
Broken flowers, from me they fall
Dried up from what they were supposed to be
Broken flowers from inside of me

Dried up water, from whence I came
Dried up water that use to bleed
Broken apart from the desert heat
Dried up water as far as the eye can,
I can see

But you could warm my heart
Broken and stolen
But you could warm my heart
And in your hands hold it

Broken flowers, like broken glass
Just like time in a bottle
Sand shows what passed
Made of the same, like you and me
Glass and sand particles that bleed

But you could warm my heart
Broken and stolen
But you could warm my heart
And in your hands hold it
Track Name: When You're Down
When you're sleeping with pigs
And your roster lays eggs
And your woman out messing around

When you're down
When you're down!
Down and out

When you can't pay the rent
Cause you moneys all spent
On boozers and hookers and clowns

When you're down
When you're down!
Down and out

When you're down
When you're down!
Down and out

Yodeling solo

When you're down
When you're down!
Down and out

When you're down
When you're down!
Down and out
Track Name: Isabella
You danced with me for the first time,
Our hands through wreaths and rings
You kept dragging'em on me,
Then got the hold of things

There were crowns upon on heads
To commemorate it.
I love you so, cant let you go,
As we dance into changing

All tangled in love,
All tangled up, all tangled up

The lace ties us together
We laugh as we spin through it
This is our day of turning human
And we look so perfect

All tangled up in love,
All tangled up, all tangled

My look had laid upon you,
Again, for the first time
Two wolf eyes of blue
And then you were all mine

I didn't want what I thought of
You didn't need what you had
Now we're all tangled in love,
Together, forever at last

AhHwoooowooooowooooo
Ahwooo,
Ooo
Ooo

You dance with me for the first time,
Our hands with wreaths and rings
Birds sing, when flowers bloom
You got a hold of things

Ahwoooowoooowoooowoooo
Ahwooo,woooo,ahwooo,woooo
Wooooo,wooooo,
Woooo,wooooo.oooooo
