Track Name: Alicia
i used to chew bubblicious
though bubbleyum was all i ever needed
combed my blond hair in the middle
a goody comb was all i ever needed

alicia
get it out of my hair

i used to wear tube socks a plenty
wore my bell bottoms everywhere
i used to roller skate every friday
tube socks and bell bottoms everywhere

alicia
get it out of my hair

alicia
(i used to live on you)
alicia
(i used to play on you)
alicia
(i still remember you)
Track Name: Junkpile
there are many yards
broken. scrapped. no rubber. sick.
rust is plenty - off the rails
succumb by mere neglect

who will run the locomotives
who will drive these automobiles
who will fly these aeroplanes,
that can still fly, but no,
may they rest in peace

what a waste... who will move the junkpile?
what a waste... who will help the junkpile?
what a waste... who will clean the junkpile?

the sky won't see them
the air won't feel them
grounded. rotten. you'd expect.

who will run the locomotives
who will drive these automobiles
who will fly these aeroplanes,
that can still fly, but no,
may they rest in peace

what a waste... who will move the junkpile?
what a waste... who will help the junkpile?
what a waste... who will clean the junkpile?

we must find a way to clean up,
the pain of a junkpile...

the grass is growing around them
the mower must be fixed
broken bottles piled up
people must have jumped the fence

who will run the locomotives
who will drive these automobiles
who will fly these aeroplanes,
that can still fly, but no,
may they rest in peace

what a waste... who will move the junkpile?
what a waste... who will help the junkpile?
what a waste... who will clean the junkpile?

we must find a way to clean up,
the pain of a junkpile...
Track Name: Deep Blue Mind
shoot me.
I’m ready
I'm relaxed
tell her
I love her
I’ll be back
don’t ask
I’m well
(I’m) smiling

under the gun’s trigger
under the gun; the one that’s pointed at me
you’re the one who’s pointed at me

choose me
I’m ready
no lies
steady
baby
you’re right

under the gun’s trigger
under the gun; the one that’s pointed at me
you’re the one who’s pointed at me

she is finding out. what I’m all about.
she was born without. makes me wonder how?
no reason now.

let me fall, let me drop right here.
let me fall, cause I’m seeing clear.
we will be one.
will you please take me for my life.

deep blue mind

under the gun’s trigger
under the gun; the one that’s pointed at me
you’re the one who’s pointed at me

she is finding out. what I’m all about.
she was born without. makes me wonder how?
no reason now.
Track Name: Cowboys and Idiots
when I was a young boy, I remember
when the dust touched our, hands and feet
the white man had a reason, to take our land
from where we ought to be

red man saw it coming, god forsake them
young will never listen, to their elders
when their hearts are bleeding, from the rage of
where we ought to be

we hold back, our anger,
because we feel it coming true
we hope that, it isn't true
we hear them, their voices,
who pass the windows to the land
beyond the stars

see my people runnin’, regret is useless when
winter winds are blowin’, change of reason will
we go beyond the seasons, from our homeland
to our destiny

memories will linger, through the children
who become the old men, who tell the stories of
when we were a nation, of people that knew
where we ought to be

we hold back, our anger,
because we feel it coming true
we hope that, it isn't true
we hear them, their voices,
who pass the windows to the land
beyond the stars

there’s no death, only a change of worlds
you say... you want it for yourself
we say that... there is nothing else

where we ought to be
to our destiny
Track Name: Ours
pen or a pencil
a paper tablet too
must keep it simple
so hard to write for two

she looked at me,
with eyes that plea,
for understanding.
I looked at her,
with eyes that blur,
for love that's pending.

we keep our pictures
we hold our memories so dear
long lasting fixtures are we
another magical year

we'll call it ours.
simply ours.

I knew she was leaving just a year ago!
but back then I wasn't so concerned!
so now that she's gone to never-never land!
my heart feels as though she'll never return!
I hope it's wrong. I am concerned.

I'll miss the sharing
I relish in the mere thought of her
but I'm so glad we're happy
another magical year

we'll call it ours.
Track Name: Detroit
detroit, again
i’m not your friend
don't wanna be in your town
work brings me down
use me, like shoes
use me, like jews
I need clean air
get me out of here

hey! fly me!

exploit my brain
for your cheap gains
feel the stress in my neck
just for the paycheck
use me, overtime
use me, i’m dying
machines everywhere
get me out of here

hey! fly me!
you cant make me
go back there

bullshit times twelve
this is my hell
don't wanna be in this town
cause it burned me out
use me, i’m dead
use me, i’m dead
I can’t see clear
get me out of here

hey! fly me!
you cant make me
go back there

fu detroit!
Track Name: Lemon Lime
the ordinary, i'm cautionary
in this life pose
be action wary, reactionary
informed angles
beyond the years we, define our history
free from shadows

hey, does anybody?
feel inside the body?
it's not that hard without
can we move on without

decline the request, appearance defense
find more roses
compete with reason, try non-believing
drive-thru religion
the secretary, then secondary
mine fields report

hey, does anybody?
feel inside the body?
it's not that hard without
can we move on without

drain the sorrow... free the child
feel the heat from the sun

complete the circle, machine gun workload
now he’s silent
diffuse and blinding, transparent highway
concentrated
the static reflex, the halo rejects
observation

hey, does anybody?
feel inside the body?
it's not that hard without
can we move on without
Track Name: Myself and Me
myself and me
we sometimes disagree
whoa

myself and me
we sometimes understand each other
mmm

wake up my eyes
and tell me I'm alive
never let me be
myself and me

myself and me
we sometimes argue
whoa

yourself and you
can be a lot like myself and me
whoa

wake up my eyes
and tell me I'm alive
never let me be
myself and me

myself and me
we sometimes disagree
whoa
yourself and you
can be a lot like myself and me
whoa... yeah

wake up my eyes
and tell me I'm alive
never let me be
myself and me
Track Name: Oblivion
you made you're point
you disappoint me
but that's ok, i'm on my way

too many fools
breaking the rules
that's fine by me, soon i will be...

on my final ride
into the unknown
are you by my side?
cuz if you're not, i'm still leavin'
bags are packed, i'm still leavin'
engines on, i'm still leavin', for oblivion

off into oblivion, to find my way back home

i've made my choice
time to rejoice
make no mistake, i won't be late...

for my final ride
into the unknown
are you by my side?
cuz if you're not, i'm still leavin'
bags are packed, i'm still leavin'
engines on, i'm still leavin', for oblivion

off into oblivion, to find my way back home
Track Name: Popcorn
I dont wanna be,
like the men from the management
ugly racist malcontent
standing in a world
that generates the bullshit
its just me feeling it

tightnen up the grip,
take control of the underpaid
self important accolade
living in a world
where your only friends are magazines
its just you fading

you will finish alone
you can never go home
you are on your own

you lit your own fire

welcome to a world,
where rebellion is underway
charging fearless energy
everbody tires
of the pointless utterance
is this making sense

you will finish alone
you can never go home
you are on your own

you lit your own fire
