Track Name: The Storm
The storm was just arriving,
blowin in from the sea
the wind knocked the power out
that was ok with me

leaves started to fall again
the rain it came on down
i held you close there by my heart
till evening came around

oh, here we are at home
no tv, no telephone
oh, just you and I
we never say goodnight

we awoke and the thunder roared
the darkness came on in
it grabbed you roughly by the hair
and pulled you to the wind

I was just forgetting
those things I couldn't un-see
when darkness knocked down all the doors
and came right back for me

oh, here we are at home
no tv, no telephone
oh, just you and I
we never say goodnight

we watched as they sifted through
the remnants of our lives
we watched and we tried our best
to throw one thousand knives

oh, here we are at home
no tv, no telephone
oh, just you and I
we never say goodnight
Track Name: Nothing's Changed
The held them down with chains and locks
now they hold us down with cars and clocks
nothing's changed

i saw the field and I saw the house
I saw the cat but I ate the mouse
nothing's changed

sunshine sunshine on the hill
don't go away, I'm a daffodill
nothing's changed

another turn around around
another interred in the ground
nothing's changed

another day and one more song
so glad that you could come along
nothing's changed
Track Name: The Party feat. Kim Manning
Don't wake me up, just let me sleep
there's a party in my dreams, and they're pourin drinks
see a snake skin man, talkin philosophy
there's a three eyed cow mooin jokes to me

over to my right, there's a hive of bees
collecting dice from the sycamore trees
got no idea what this all means
but it's fading away to the sound of grinding beans

I've got to leave this party, i've got to say goodbye
there's a whole world waiting for me
I'll see you when I die

There's a table and chairs, and a smoky ash tray
over to my right, space twirls away
I hear a whisper from a long dead friend
I'll greet you later when you reach the end
there's a sofa with a feathered tree
the world is warpin what's happened to me?

I've got to leave this party, i've got to say goodbye
there's a whole world waiting for me
I'll see you when I die

dealin cards is a man with white eyes
ol' Mrs. Mader's servin apples and fries
on a pillow sits a girl with four arms
the band is swingin, the sound of fire alarms

don't wake me up just leave me here
there's a party in my dreams and they're pouring beer
don't wake me up it's just not fair
there's a party in my dream and everyone's there

don't wake me up, just let me sleep
there's a party in my dreams, and they're pourin drinks
Track Name: Happy
In the light so bright this morning
with the birdies kinda singin i feel allright
coffee beans a grindin
minding my own time i'm sighing "it's a good time"
the rain it never soften often falling through the sunrise
it's such a sight
the little things so soon they bring
a smile for a while oh just in time

open your eyes, and listen closely
open your arms and embrace it all

when the river fell got down a spell
you pick me up you never tell what i'll do
there's a reason that i'm sayin
things I think of when I'm prayin to understand you
it's just too nice to say it twice
it's where we're born and where we die there's no place like home
it's not a curse our universe, it's the only job in town
so get over yourself

open your eyes, and listen closely
open your arms and embrace it all
Track Name: The Wall
This wall between us is so thin
if it were to break down again
would you pour yourself on me
like the rain pours from the sky
would you wrap yourself around me
keep me happy till I die

I feel those things I shouldn't say
if pops was here, he'd know the way
he'd say "try to find that thing
that brings the light into your eye"
let it wrap itself around you
keep you happy till you die

hush now, be quiet
I know I've said it all
come over here we'll work it out
with our backs against the wall
Track Name: Cloud feat. Bon Hollywood
What a cloud I found in you
you're lighter than air
so grey you stay away
and dissipate

It's the ground you found in me
I'm everywhere
so far you'll never see
to the sea

Uh.

I should have known, it was you all along
don't know when it happened
I don't know if it was wrong
i'll leave those flowers by your bed
till one day when time has had its sweet revenge
I'll pick them all

if you don't mind please put me through
to someone who knows,
be fair I really don't care if they stare

I got a ride now go away
take me somewhere
so far I'll be a star
in your car

uh.
Track Name: Winter
You came to town
snow falls down
sky turns grey
square turns round

come back you say
another way
the sky's too far
it's cold and grey

I can't see an inch away
I'm frozen where I stand
I smile when I die
it wasn't so bad

they found me there
I watched aware
I heard them sing
seems more than fair

I can't see an inch away
I'm frozen where I stand
I smile when I die
it wasn't so bad
Track Name: Moonrise feat. Engrama
She called me in the morning and she told me bout my friends
I didn't listen to the story because I knew how it ends
they were out and drinkin thinkin just like you and me
but he wasn't really thinkin when they slid into a tree

in that moonrise, white sky

doesn't matter what they didn't doesn't matter what they've done
they can't open up and tell us if they were having fun
we put'em in a blanket, in a box, into the ground
while we sat and wondered what, if anything, they found

in that moonrise, white sky

we left them with a gift to take along to what's beyond
they left us up and wondering what's over, done and gone
I guess they say there'll always been some tiny part remains
in our memories, our stories, and the tales we tell again

in that moonrise, white sky
Track Name: Jug Wine
Got too high on old jug wine
under the shadow of this old pine
you're thinking, bout where to go
a voice says hi from deep inside
another voice says "let it ride,
but hang on tight, don't you know"

with red dew sun and full of lust
here's the candy that you can't trust
but baby, you taste like honey
your eyes said no so I let it go
then your lips told me what they know
it's morning now, the sky is sunny

if I had a grain of sand every time you grew
i'd have myself a castle and nothing left to do
if I had a dollar for every line you drew
i'd have myself a picture, and a fortune too

another try to make it fine, under the shadow of this old pine
you're thinking, "where have I gone?"
the sun shine dandelion through the trees
you've got nothing more left of me
so stand up, and greet the dawn

with new leaves coming in the spring
you can guess most anything, but baby, there is no other
you told me once I'd never die
told me countless other lies
so run home, to your mother

if I had a grain of sand every time you grew
i'd have myself a castle and nothing left to do
if I had a dollar for every line you drew
i'd have myself a picture, and a fortune too
Track Name: Fat Man
the fat man sits up on the hill, looks down, rubs his hands and grins
he had you for a while now he's got you again,
he's gonna keep you till the end
he strokes your face then you tell,
after all of this you pay him well
you go right back into his hands,
his grubby, fat and pudgy hands
give it all to him again.

Those soothing soft and subtle words
are whispered through your hair
that rich fat man is breathing on you,
his rancid breath is everywhere
he feeds you and he warms you,
he does the things you need to have done
but you're tied up to the wall,
the burning, stinking yearning wall
you give it all to him again

you can hide, but you can't run
you're gonna die, but it's fun
he takes your pain away
he buries you, in the sun.

you lay awake and count the dust,
he never once tried to betray your trust
he's right there beside you,
you know that he would never leave you now
his kisses through the years,
those kisses , made you feel so good
he's kept you tied up, chained up, dried up,
but you love him so
give it all to him again
Track Name: Dead feat. The Voodoo Organist
I'm dead, been dead since the day I was born
can't feel it yet, but I felt forlorn
yeah i'm sick and I'm fine, time isn't always in a line
I'm dead and I've been dead since the day I was born

I met you just before you met me
or am I wrong? we'll just wait and see
from whose point of view who met somebody new
I met you just before you met me

it happened it will happen and it's happening again
reality expands, then it contracts again
on the day that I die

I died, died on that day I took your hand
you died too, before we walked that sand
it's all already done so in the now let's have some fun
I died on that day that I took your hand

It's ok, every little thing is ok
you see tomorrow is the same as today
you'll never regret if today is what you get
your whole life gets played out and that's ok
Track Name: Home
The cloud is slowly rising from the carpet with the light
with every sound we heard on purpose then remaining in the night
the sky is open wide and the birdies say hello

they float up from the water like an engel sent to god
the sunlight shatters from the needles like its laughing with a nod
the shows on tv are for someone else to see

home is where we are, never closer never far
home is where we stand, more a feeling than a land

all you have to do is wonder and i'm sure she'll come along
you want to think about the trouble while she's thinkin bout the song
you hold her closely and never let go

if she smiles then you found it if she forwns then try again
the man in stories said you'll win her if you tryin in the end
you can't leave right now. you can't leave right now.
Track Name: Please come home
too much to say
so little time to do the things you said
so little time to say the things you've read

you're all wrung up
she bought it then but never again
she bought it then because she was your friend

<inane drunken babbling, insert your own>
