Track Name: Goodbye, Take Care
Goodbye, take care
I'll see you there
You'll wave your hand
Too young to understand

You're the only one who likes rock n roll
You're the only one who's still got their soul
You're the only one who's still in control
You're the only one

You've gotta make up your mind
Just a little bit of lovin' lasts a long long time

You've gotta make up your mind
Designer label doesn't matter when it's not your size

Goodbye, take care
I'll see you there
You'll wave your hand
Too young to understand
Track Name: Dirty Water
Young boy listen to your mother
Don't stay out after dark
Be kind unto your brother
Stay true to who you are
Don't fill your mind with thoughts of devil's work and raising hell
Don't drink the dirty water from that old wooden well

Young man built full of promise
Lead a fulfilling life
Don't get caught up in madness
Leave time to love your wife
Don't fill your mind with thoughts of women, don't give in to greed
Don't drink the dirty water from with the others feed

Old man your life's not over
There's still strength in those hands
Use them to pull in closer
Use them to understand
Don't fill your mind with thoughts of death, don't be a bitter man
Don't drink the dirty water, just do the best you can
Track Name: Golden Lips
Left my home so long ago
Went down trudging through the snow
Then I found, from right above me
Golden Lips, tasted so lovely

O'er the mountains, through the trees
Across the water, float like a breeze
Came a voice, singing so sweetly
Felt my legs give out from beneath me

Came to a place I felt I'd been before
Not my body, but yet something more
There she lay naked facing the shoreline
Game of war on the table by her side

Feel her breath in my soul dancing patterns
Speaking in subtle vibrations from lifetimes ago
In Villa Maria I'm meeting an old friend
Can someone please tell me what's coming over me?
Track Name: Ramblin'
Words come from your mouth, make no sense
What you say is too much, it's irrelevant
Though I like you now, but I may change my mind
Ramblin' here, ramblin' there, make up your mind

Now listen to my two cents, son
Don't entertain me with your nonsense now
You better see that you're not the king of free speech
You abuse it, you will lose it

Stop stop your talk talk before I break your bones
Is your heart in the right place, cus you seem so stoned
Though I like you now, but I may change my mind
Ramblin' here, ramblin' there, make up your mind

Now listen to my two cents, son
Don't entertain me with your nonsense now
You better see that you're not the king of free speech
You abuse it, you will lose it
Track Name: Long Haired Bald Guy
Long haired bald guy walking down the street
He said son, you're looking hungry
Would you like something to eat?
Thank you sir, but no thanks I just ate
Excuse me sir, I must be on my way

Wealthy homeless man, standing in my way
Can you spare a couple pennies?
I haven't ate in days
You can't fool me, your suit does all the talk
But there's a long haired bald guy waiting for you down the block

Plastic pretty girl calling out my name
She said boy I kinda like you
Can we see things the same?
Sorry but it's best I stay on my feet
But there's a wealthy homeless man that you should meet

Smiling stupid boy, I see you in the mirror
You think that you're so clever, laughing in the face of fear
Denied yourself a chance at knowledge, faith, and love
You've got your head up in the clouds
And you're never ever coming down
It's a shame that you're so proud
Cus you're missing out
Track Name: I'm Alright
What you're gonna get you've got
Got a little bit of time left to be timeless
Just roll over dog, and run
Run, let's run
I'm so sick of complaining
How come I can only write things when it's raining these days?
Oh it keeps raining these days

Hey, I'm alright

Oh I keep my head held high
Keep my eyes on the sky, alright
Oh that's a lie
So many people sit at home constructing images and egos
Of what they wanna be
That's alright, that's alright
But you won't find that from me, I'm alright

Hey, I'm alright
Track Name: Tightrope Walker
Tightrope walker hanging on the line
I don't know how I got here, but it sure ain't no fault of mine

See my number written on the sky
We live by the mercy of clouds as they just pass us by
Track Name: Remember When
X marks the spot you know
Take me to the show
Tender voice, aquatic glow
Electric sigh, a feedback lullaby yeah
Back a day, switch the scene
Dressed in drag, a gypsy queen
Please tell me what the hell it means
To see the day, to breathe a different way yeah

Remember when we used to dance to rock n roll?

Born in the river and raised in the woods
Shake and shiver
A shady man who walks the burning sand yeah
Lady of the night
Dressed in black and white
She's all dolled up, but it's not quite right
She's on the scene, she's only seventeen yeah

Remember when we used to dance to rock n roll?
Let's bring it back
Track Name: Birdman
Birdman, walking down the street
Birdman, as seen on TV
Birdman, avian through and through
Birdman, has his eye on you
He don't know what to do with himself
It's hard to breathe when you only yell

Birdman, knows just what he likes
Birdman, turtles don't ride bikes
Birdman, they're breaking down his door
Birdman, hear the Birdman roar
They come a-run at the ring of a bell
It's hard to breathe when you're sexy as hell

Birdman, so the story goes
Birdman, singing out his nose
Birdman, don't know what to do
Birdman, thinks that he loves you
He knows his situation's absurd
It's hard to breathe when bird is the word
Track Name: White Cactus
All I want is to turn you off so I can turn you on
All I need, my little machine, is whatever you want

I don't wanna know why

She said I'm not in love with you
But I love your hair, and your vacant stare
You know I fantasize about those hazey eyes
And how I know you're not there

You know it turns me on
To see you so far gone
But I don't wanna know why
