about

manic-depressive tour through the mysterious Dinky Caves!!!

"Alas, Babylon!"

Our poor hero, ddean cassidy, finds himself magically transported by serendipity and heartbreak to the heathen ghost-worlds and grimy, dark, dank, dilapidated cavern passages of the Forbidden World of the Dinky Caves!!

Will he ever see The Sun again!? or will the hanging doom-clouds reign forever as the paper cats drift by creepily, as if hung there by puppet strings and electric wires!?

Find out HERE!

Find out NOW!!

Find OUT LOUD!!!!

Track Name: oh troubled sea
Oh Troubled Sea of Galilee, When your billows all run high,
And through your dreaded storms I see, That pain and death are nigh,
O when your threatening clouds appear, And floods impending chill,
Through surge and tempest may I hear, A voice say "Peace, be still."

O storied sea of Galilee, Through all the changing years,
Your stress is type of storms to be, And sign of rising fears;
Your tempests drive our hopes across, The floods of human ill,
That conquest of all pain and loss, Is in thy "Peace, be still."

Oh, Darlin don't go
Darlin don't ever go
don't leave me alone
Track Name: sex makes me want to vomit (baptist platitudes)
Consider this a call to arms
to save all the old dairy farms
creating, as it were, a place to
have a one last stand.

and god please help librarians
and priests and unitarians
ever-striving for simplicity
in oh-so-complicated lands

and god i wish i was still young
and had my eyes all full and dumb
and SEX was not this cloud obscuring
any hope of ever living
freely with you now.

and take up all the workers
and the office building lurkers
give them honey, tea, and coffee,
and join all their sweaty hands.

And if we all must someday die,
then why would we want to live,
in places like this where
the toil is clear
as a bell and
the egos are
all about three
times as loud
as all hell?

and it just
makes me wanna vomit
just makes me wanna vomit
just makes me wanna vomit

and when it comes I'm gonna show her I love her true

cause when i get on that bus
you know that she'll see,
that she's the one for me.
Track Name: Go Down, Fort Worth, TX
I ate a dolla bill and i
shit out
a dolla bill
got a hundred dolla money
stuck in my teeth like honey

I had sixteen girlfriends
all
at
once
and then I got dumped
by sixteen girls and
now I live in a smaller
home than
most people choose to live in
with a girl
i
don't really love
any more
and a hundred dolla bills and money
stuck in my teeth
and i'm coming home

i'm headed home
to fort worth texas

like a boy who has just become a person,
I'll sip my venom,
out my mouth
till the sun goes
Down
South
following me,
as I go home
to fort worth texas

where even is fort worth?

thank you

Track Name: ecclesiastical feelings (more awful, whining ruminations)
"the king of israel
left his time upon the shelf
found out later
it could gone
in the red lights, in the red lights,
god damn the feeling

god damn the feeling of these days

and i am nothing but a filter for shit and plastic, just like the super markets,
and i am not a river
and i am not a wind
and i am just one of the created things
and i will, despite my toils, never find anything close to what you would call true love
__________________call true love to me,
____________________call true love,
and i am nothing but dust
and i am already broken and lost

in the red lights, in His red lights
god damn the feeling

god damn the feeling of these days"

-the rain that has already fallen yo
yo yo yo (wet when slippery)
hits hard and i grab a pen to let off or whatever (sorry, guys)
the best way to live?

the snow falls gently,
and gently falling,
he rises while sleeping,
he rises while sleeping.

Track Name: by puppet strings and electric wires
she can do whatever she wants to do
you can do whatever you want to do
she can do whatever she wants to you
but I don't wanna be here
no

you can do whatever she wants you to
he can do whatever you want him to
she can do whatever she wants to you
but I don't wanna be there

cause there's a difference
between every thing tonight,
there's a difference,
between everything,
there's a difference between every thing tonight,
there's a difference between me
Track Name: the paper cats pass by!
the paper cats don't leave a single trail,
they just drift by slowly
and they look scared,
as they pass,

but thank god,
thank god they're gone
and i am alone again

well, someday when me
and all my friends
live in one big house
altogether

and someone is making
coffee in our kitchen
I won't want those
paper cats
anywhere near us,

I'll have to chase them all away,
with a broom, I guess
Track Name: it's only up from the bottom
just cause you know neither one of you can say no
and you know he can't let you go
and you know he never trick another one like you oh no no no no no

and so we circle here at the bottom of the drain
sending doves to the sun
maybe he can be someone and meet someone
maybe we can disappear maybe we can disappear
adios adios adios adios

as for me
I'll hold myself
love myself
try to smile
move away
hold someone
hopefully
get away
from all these caves
hopefully
fly away
from all these caves

floating, as they are
in the airs
but yet not moving
i should be moving
i should be different
oh oh
please circle me round
circle me round
and hide me in you
take all my eyes away
and leave me to stay
as a piece of the earth
until my birth
until the earth
explode to fill all space with breaths of fresh air.

"I need a fix cause I'm goin down,
down to the [place where I come from town]"
~John Lennon

well, the love here answer cause
it's only up from the bottom.
Track Name: A Dove, flying back from The Sun
ray come with living water
flowing from within you
ice besides the temple
where anne believe (will leave) his name
to rest,
tourist.

they sing immanuel
they sing themselves now
in voices laying quiet by
and His voice to lead me back
to rest,
tourist.
