Duck Song 01:42
I wanna be comforted You can't hold my hand It's raining so hard outside I wanna be comforted An arm's length away I wanna be comforted Throw a blanket over me from across the room We stay six feet away We run towards the ducks but they just fly away I learn to dance alone I'm spending so much time on my phone We run towards them but they fly away We run towards them but they fly away I wanna be comforted You can't hold my hand It's raining so hard outside I wanna be comforted An arm's length away I wanna be comforted Throw a blanket over me from across the room

When you told me you were lonely You were only (you were only) Acting phony (acting phony) You were only (acting phony) Don't resist legitimately Put it simply (put it simply) You don't miss me (you don't miss me) Put it simply (you don't miss me) Intersect or intercepting Reconnect or reinventing Reaching out or reaching within Something there or imagination Glass of bubbly bubbles brightly Glass of something almost nightly Glasses break I'm so unsightly Guess I'll wait and see politely Doting on you on the daily Dilly-dallying and snail-mailing Making phone calls like the old days Then I see the error in my ways You were lonely, I heard you say so Not for me, though (not for me, though) I'm just so-so (I'm just so-so) Not for me, though (I'm just so-so)

I don't know if I could be alone While we have to stay home I don't think that I could on my own I'm so glad that I have company And they're always around to comfort me And we're all so happy 'cause I love my quarantine buddies I know they love me too And we'll be quarantine buddies 'til 2022! There's a boy that I love in my bed And a cat who will sleep when she's fed And we all dream in our heads Everyday we wake up and we do What we want and we don't answer to Anyone but ourselves 'cause I love my quarantine buddies I know they love me too And we'll be quarantine buddies 'til 2022!

This book that takes batteries Initials after my name A mad dash for a career A utensil for every pea on the plate Erased am I From the embrace Qualified To carry a big fat grin Multiply Ten hearts for each of yer arrows Satisfied Living the dream Everyone else is all grins Dripping sex and dribbling chins Status, drugs ‘n chatter Tell me what is it that matters May I do without? If all is in the name of progress Well, just what are we progressing to? If only it wasn't for this skin That I find myself stuck in May I do without? Music & Lyrics ©Michael E. Milosh 2020.

Bric-A-Brac 03:12
I've always felt a need to bend the truth Compelled by boredom, though I can't refuse I've got a humdrum love for my ennui It's gonna make an honest man of me No need for flashy pageantry I will ask my apathy To spend the rest of my life with me I don't want to bore you You know I adore you Minutiae, won't you marry me? So meet me by the beach or a courthouse hall As long as it's with you, anywhere I do No need for flashy pageantry I will ask my apathy To spend the rest of my life with me I don't want to bore you You know I adore you Minutiae, won't you marry me? Soft like the wind Silent as snow The devil's in the details, don't you know? Dates to attend Time spent alone The moment that I met you years ago And as we look back from our silver year The time before seems to disappear

Cherish 02:54
I drove to Cleveland for a vegan in a peacoat It was a good idea I'd had several times And I imagined a future 'til their features changed When I drove home, did I cry? Did I try not to? I'm not good at feeling my feelings when I feel them I dissociate with a smile And in the background of a Walgreens I hear Madonna calling And the lights shine blue through the Gatorade aisle And I don't wanna say, I don't wanna say That I would have cherished you 'cause what does that do? How do you mourn something that was barely anything? A few months, a few hundred miles And it broke up for reasons that were reasonable When I drove home, did I cry? Did I try not to? And I don't wanna say, I don't wanna say That I would have cherished you 'cause what does that do?

Have I ever told you that I'm afraid of the dark? But not 'cause I worry about If I am alone Instead I lose track of my feet And sometimes trip and fall You know, those things that I do in the light ...but maybe that's the point So I have to trust myself Aand just walk I thought I saw a bucket of leaves Fly from a tree But it was a flock of birds Headed east And we thought we saw your mom Return to the Lord But then heard her say She could handle things herself The sun lit the riverside So we got in your car to drive away And what even of These fruits of love? The ones we've worked hard To cultivate Do they ripen when we go 'til someone picks them up? Or do they rot away And just go to waste? But if we can't take them to the next life That's alright - let's take a bite tonight And in the morning plant the seeds back in the earth

Ah, apple of my eye I can't reach what you see Oh, owl staying up late Hang around the empty sea Ah, words are out for dreams If I could meet what you see  Oh, only summer breeze Blowing through the dappled shade To gather shells get away from dedication It's like a chapter of life Given a gift so far To hear the voices I'll face the direction It's darkest under the nose Getting out of here Ah, May on my mind I can't reach what you see Oh, owl staying up late Turn to the nest here in silence Ah, word is out for dream   If I could meet what you see Oh, early summer weather Ten years have passed and healed all wounds

Funeral 03:39
Just like another Sunday, wake up late Dress like you're going to the bar with friends We should do it on a sunny day because it's my one last party We'll have lots and lots of food and drinks Hard liquor will not be served so bring your own We should hold it close to the forest So no one could get lost I'll make a speech of farewell Where I'd say I love you all Following that will be a list of what I liked about this world When the sun is low I'll have to go Flowers on my brand new walnut bed I've chosen happy songs in this mixtape So you don't have to cry I'll make a speech of farewell Where I'd say I love you all Following that will be a list of what I liked about this world I go home to forest I go home with flowers

Everything I've done Has made me who i am Everything I've tried Everything I've planned And every word I've said Ode or argument Every little thing Every race I ran Has made me who I am Sometimes I have looked Sometimes I have seen Beauty I have heard I nudge myself to keep listening But every song I've sung Was learning how to sing How to sing And though we shall never meet Or never meet again I'll keep listening 'cause everyone I've met Has made me who I am Tell me what you know Tell me what is true Easy enough to find Easier to lose But everywhere I've looked Has led me back to you Back to you And everywhere I go Is headed that way too Everything I've done Has made me who I am Everything I've tried Everything I've planned And everyone I've met I'd meet them all again And every word I've said I'd say it all again And everyone I've loved I'd love them all again Every little step...
