song 1

a.
Slanted light, a tired door
Resurrection floor
It is by atomics, by the dust in the air
That we know light, invisible, is there
Child I know you will laugh with the sound of
Light getting back up and walking out the door
On Friday the 13th
Which I don’t watch anymore

Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh
Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh

b.
By dust in the air,
We know light, invisible, is there
In bright pressure
By book of the floor and the basement stair
We know resurrection is there

In the fire children walk around, walk around
Visible, and their sound:

Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh
Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh

c.
Slanted light, a tired door
It is by atomic ladder,
Light gets back up off the floor
Facing stations, crisis – children
Interpose, now and then
Following but closer only ever by half

Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh
Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh

d.
By dust in the air for light-fall,
By book of the floor and the basement stair
We see the invisible child
Child I know you will laugh with the sound of
Light getting back up off the floor
On Friday the 13th
Which I don’t watch anymore

Try rhyme in strange
Hop-foot bird refrain
Here is a man who
Here is a man who
Here is a man who will one day make his children laugh

e.
Tired light, slanting door
Slanted fire, slanted floor
We know resurrection’s there
In bright pressure
In the fire children walk around, walk around
Slight problem of nouns
Spring ice. Laughter finds light
Free for all
Light gets back up off the floor
By atomic ladder
Radical laughter and

Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh
Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh

f.
We know light, invisible, is there
Visible, and sound:
Light gets back up off the ground
Even a broken wire sings
Ice in spring

Here is a man who
Here is a man who
One day will make his children laugh
Will make his children laugh

g.
Sing dust
Light’s free-for-all
Back up off the floor
On Friday the 13th
Which I don’t watch anymore
Shift rook
Safe symphony
Hop-foot bird refrain
By atomic ladder
Get up get up again

Here is a man here is a man here is a man
Who will
Here is a man who will make
Will make his children laugh

h.
The Resurrection floor
Fear of where you’ve come from, easily overcome
Come for more
And in the air
We see invisibility
Child I know you will laugh with the sound of
Light
Here is a man who will
Slant light, try the door
It is by atomic ladder,
Get up, get up

Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh
Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh

In the fire children walk around, walk around
Visible, and their sound:

Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh
Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh

prime
Slanted light, a tired door
Resurrection floor
By dust in the air
We know light, invisible, is there
Child I know you will laugh with the sound of
Light getting back up off the floor
On Friday the 13th
Which I don’t watch anymore

Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh
Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh

By light in free-fall,
Book of the floor and basement stair
We know resurrection’s there
In bright pressure
In the fire children walk around, walk around
Visible, and their sound:

Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh
Here’s a man who’s going to make his children laugh

Try rhyme in strange
Hop-foot bird refrain
Off the floor by atomic ladder
Radical laughter and
Coming up for air

Here is a man who
Here is a man who
Here is a man who’s going to make his children laugh
Here is a man who’s going to make his children laugh

I thought I heard something rip, but it was in me
Be with me
I’m with you
