Track Name: Alien Trill
Alright okay in the river of the holy ghost gave it all away for everyone to seed in the other one that no one knew about left them high and dry with nothing left to drink left him high and dry with nothing left to dream out in space I can seem a different shade will you be when I say that you are not the only one out in space, It’d be okay out in space will you be when I say that you are not the only one pyramids and weird other shapes control my mind and I don’t care cigarettes and holy ghosts alright okay I’ll ride okay

(Williams)
Track Name: Colder Days in Sunny Places
Drop me off I’ll walk home from here
I don’t mind if i talk to the devil
He said woah, woah, woah child you ain’t coming down here no way
He said woah

(Williams)
Track Name: Backhouse
I don’t know why but I just want to die when I think of you things are just fine but animals are crawling out of my ears and I sigh till I just want to cry warn a cry these feelings will fade and these colors are real and these people will die just like you and I she may never understand why she puts it on the walls with her posters and her papers with the drawings that she does
Track Name: Kinder Garden
Thank your mom if she makes you lunch to bring to school to trade it off with the other kids and make some friends so I’ll try to try to be a better human ‘cause I guess it matters in the end so I’ll shake the hand of the loving guide who kicks you down to lift you up
Track Name: Jubilation
A sleeping boy, eats ferociously his dreams
Gleaning one will never handle with a hold too young
Awoken with a lazy lie, once wide open, his eyes now droop
Wiped dry from their shine by blathering so in divine
To others I can be what you really mean to me
But it’s the sick piece of me extending its hand to you
If this is what it means for you to stay away from me
Then I’m more afraid than I’ve ever been
Rockin' back, rockin' back, rockin' back beyond the wall I call Jubilation
Choke it back choke it back, forgetting that it’s gone, tonic water station
Rocking back, rock it back, rock it back beyond the wall I call no wonder
Choke it back choke it back, forgetting that it’s gone, it’s false imagination
When finally found by his mind, astray, he journeyed to tie his time
Lithery words could not abide to their own simple symmetry
Hold it stolidly, realizing lies
Giving what was stolen, memorizing lines

(Butera)
Track Name: Renaissance Man
Mr. Songwriter Renaissance Man
Take it easy relax a while
It is what it is Mr. Renaissance Man
Breathe in breathe out
I wonder if i’m half empty or if i’m half full
What does it matter anyhow,
No one’s drinking out of me
i think that i’m fading now turning pale white blue
I over-think my every thought and get lost oh
Does it matter anyhow
Here we are all in the same place too
World's in one
This odd little space and enchanted waste I feel numb
Does it matter anyhow
Doesn't matter any how
Track Name: Barbara
In a little town under water
No one mutes a sound
In this little town
Trees grow upside down
Underneath the ceiling
Anhedonia
Barbed wire hooked up on a wood picket fence
Barbara hung down she was such a nuisance
Barbed wire hooked up on a white picket fence
Barbara hung down she was stuck on noose ends
In a desert town
Mayflies teach clouds how to swim
Sing their piece of mind
Mary-go-round
Repeating signals the lights exchange
Keepsakes are synching into the air
Anhedonia
Barbed wire hooked up on a wood picket fence
Barbara hung down she was such a nuisance
Barbed wire hooked up on a white picket fence
Barbara hung down she was stuck on noose ends
Anhedonia

(Williams)
Track Name: New Refrigerator
I know that god is watching you watching me washing dishes in the sink I know you are watching and when the optimism sets in I leave a nickel in my pocket for good luck in the future, she may love the color purple swim in a sea of music of you love-drunk rain show the picture repulsive summer flood goddess winter girl’s petals drive to death (today) cool sour ringed boy lusts the sun essential visions have gone delirious
Lightning so so frightening

(M. Williams)
Track Name: Pink Eye
I’m sitting here, watching clothes spin by
I’m sitting here, watching the big black eye
I’m sitting here, wondering where time flies
and I think I need some love
and I think I want some love
I’m sitting here, watching the world go by
I’m sitting here, watching the leaves go by
I’m sitting here, wondering who am I?
The love you receive won’t mean a thing if you don’t give it back
and I think I need some love
and I think I want some love

(Mackin/Badstubner/Williams)
Track Name: Billy Rocket
Parallel lines run in through my mind
through the circles that rush along the spine
they feel thin and fuzzy I wish they would shine
like the light from the sky right into my mind

through raindrops and orchids and an ice machine turned into a rocket and time machine

so come find me now come sit with me
so come find me now come sit with me

they’d fly with me with time over the hills
across the deserts and mountains
through the hole in the ground bringing you uptown
and then again back down

through raindrops and orchids and an ice machine turned into a rocket and time machine

so come find me now come sit with me
so come find me now come sit with me


(L. Mackin)
Track Name: Problems
Everybody’s got problems
if you don’t you’re probably a fairy
flying around pollinating flowers
grant me a wish I’ve got problems too

shoot shoot I got a wish oh oh

stop complaining about the food you’re eating stop complaining about the people complaining eat your goddamn food okay eat your goddamn food please okay

shoot shoot bang bang i got a wish

(Williams)
Track Name: Mole Star
Feed me euphoria I need a fix
come inside now the weather’s so nice

it’s on the radio, another shady psalm
it’s on the radio, tomorrow it’ll be gone
and through the bitter better times, we’ll have a bitter better child
it’s on the radio
tomorrow it’ll be God

feed him some more now but don’t let him spoil though too too much
come inside the house the weather’s so nice

it’s on the radio, another shady psalm
it’s on the radio, tomorrow it’ll be gone
and through the bitter better times, we’ll have a bitter better child
it’s on the radio
tomorrow it’ll be God
