Track Name: a cloud in the sky
Care about the one's you love/ Fuck the rest/ It's what my daddy says...
Help your mother out/ Before she dies/ Make sure she's comfortable/ And don't let the media/ Fill her head with lies/ Help your mother out...
Make me proud my son/ DO good things/ Make sure you're on your own/ And don't let anyone take credit for your deeds/ Make me proud my son...
Maybe Dad/ You're just a man/ Maybe your son/ Could never understand/ And Maybe God was just a cloud in the sky...Maybe God/ Was all alone/ When "He" built this world of flesh and bone/ Someday Dad/ I'll take you home...
Track Name: the Lonely Moniker
i've been talking with your lonely moniker/ and if you're happy there/ then i'm guessin yes/ I've been dreaming about your screaming for so long now/ I won't believe it's over/ until the cows come home/ I've been thinking about your drinking philosophies/ and what you believe in/ your favourite god or maybe nothing/ your favourite god or maybe something else entirely...
Track Name: Adelle Davis (Before you Go)
I might miss you in the morning/ I might miss you in your shoes/ I could leave you at the door babe/ but god knows that I'd miss you/ you can take it out on me babe/ all you got just give to me/ why so sad at the world babe/ when you could be happy with me/ i could walk along the ocean/ retrace all my foreign steps/ make a friend out of a porpoise/ ride it all the way to heaven/ before you go...
I might miss you in the morning/ i might miss you in your shoes/ i could leave you at the door babe/ god knows that i'd miss you...before you go
Track Name: the Awful Blue
the awful between your eyes/ has me opened up the skies/ maybe then you'll find your place/ somewhere in some distant space/ come back to me/ come home to me
the awful blue inside my veins/ pushes blood towards my brain/ someday soon you'll fit in just fine/ and watch us waste our precious time/ come back to me/ come home to me
the awful blue between your eyes/ has me locked in endless sigh/ where my hair can find a home/ baby i'm no longer stoned/ come back to me/ come home to me
Track Name: Half A Heart
Maybe we were made to die/ Maybe it's time to try/ A long goodbye to those beautiful things and back to those animal skins/
All my precious time/ Could be spent with you/ In a halfway house/ built for 2/ Have you ever been on hold from your war?/ Have you ever had a hold at all?
so Mend your hands/ Make it slow...again
We Live for taste and maybe you'd agree/ That life isn't anything without the love we need/ The highways expand/ They weren't built for speed/ They were made to close the miles between you and and me

Maybe we've been here before/ While the sad sad beast was knocking at the door/ And if you had half a heart I'd still be in love/ Because only half a heart would be enough...

so Make it feel/ Take it all/ And when you reappear/ I won't have to crawl...again
Track Name: With you When you Die
I was living a life/ a life worth living for/ beyond the big blue sky/ i found my heart was sewn/ to the memory of you tattooed on my brain/ so i then took a drive/ all the way to Morro Bay/ and there i found my bride/ struggling to breathe/ suffocating... I want to you be with you when you die...
Track Name: What good is a man (who wants to be someone else)
Someone once said/ they want it so bad/ if they could spend a minute in your head/ or walkin in your shoes/ but no one ever put water in their swimming pools...

For what good is a man/ Who wants to be someone else/ You're better off just dreaming/ Than losing yourself...

I've made it this far/ and made some good friends/ tried not to waste my time/ cause we all die in the end/ and some are reborn/ and some just move on/ or maybe we return to complete what we'd begun...

For what good is a man/ Who stays satisfied/ There's no room for nothing/ When his contentment runs dry...
For what good is a man/ Who wants to be someone else/ You're better off just dreaming/ Than losing yourself...
