Track Name: Kayfabe
In the summer
You don’t need to run away, you know you’re safe be neath the covers
I told you you need some way, you need one way or another
To get through this funny phase, and out the haze
It’s a bummer how some things can slip away
When the sun hits and we melt in the street
The daylight will shine right where I’ve wanted to see
Kee p the clothes off , you look perfect to me
The sheets wet with tee n sweat will be easy to clean
On the corner
Some thoughts of her in my bed go through my head
Check out the stoners
All hooked on those Grateful Deads as they all head to Arizona
Let’s stay at home instead, just go to bed
I’m feeling older, well maybe that’s good she said
When the sun hits and we melt in the street
The daylight will shine right where I’ve wanted to see
Keep the clothes off , you know what I mean
The sheets wet with teen sweat will be easy to clean
Tell the drowning dog you don’t fuck with the sea
My faith lies in the bluest eyes that’ve got something to see
Keep the clothes off when we lay in the trees
The leaves wet with teen sweat will be easy to clean
Track Name: Night Vision Mode
What do you want?
More than anything that I want
Is to be a foreigner, in a remote land my thoughts are drifting now
You’ve got to let it go, let it go
Love
Love
What do you want?
Its getting dark now, switch to vision mode
All this new flavor is making my mind buds bloom
Glow with purple aura, energy that spins around and around
Don’t you patronize it, I’m fee ling this, I'm loving you
Love
Love
What do you want?
This ain’t it, say love
I hate it, not love
What do you want?
Track Name: Spirit Girl
Well the plan was to get it right but I don’t think it is tonight
We are everybody at the same time, this might be the dawn of feeling
Light up the room tonight
Feel your touch, your skin is nice
Let's be lovers like children of gods
Emma knows, not me though, she don’t
I dream about you
Well the plan was to get it right but I don’t think it is tonight
We are everybody at the same time, this might be the dawn of feeling
The voices surround us, the stars do speak of loving everyone, and you are the Spirit Girl
Always speaking never to you
Up the steps in a dream it's nice
Let's be lovers like children of gods
Emma knows, not me though, she don’t
I dream about you
Well the plan was to get it right but I don’t think it is tonight
We are everybody at the same time, this might be the dawn of feeling
Can I fee l it?
Track Name: Astral Observations
Settle down
I don’t mean to doubt your knowledge, but I’ve been hanging out
With the cool kids at the college, I know what they’re about
I don’t think that there’s a future, as long as we’re around
Mother earth splits at her sutures
Lately, the world’s been acting up
People running around like they’re all crazy
The moms think it’s the drugs that kids are doing now
I think maybe we’ve reached the end of time
We’ve found it, we’ve found the finish line
Pardon me
I don’t mean to sound impatient, but I’ve found lots of hope
Through astral observations in my telescope
I think it upsets the neighbors when I look through their yard
And read all their morning papers
Lately, the world’s been acting up
People running around like they’re all crazy
The moms think it’s the drugs that kids are doing now
I think maybe we’ve reached the end of time
We’ve found it, we’ve found the finish line
Track Name: Major Magic
Our last dance, hoping for one more chance
If you forget, just look through your head
You’ll find me there
Gray halo over the world you know
But if I recall, it’s all my fault
We all want the blunt of a helping hand
That slaps you ‘cross your face
Andy if you want, if you want
Winter’s call, we didn’t need at all
Getting so close, the next thing you know
It’s like “oh”
Your old man, he didn’t understand
The weight of the walk is all that talks
Coming out of a spell, awake and young
We are just looking for shelter in the sun
Feel of the air in our lungs
Andy if you want, if you want
I won’t lie , it don’t hurt to try
Track Name: Nephew
Living on a leaf in the river, I fee l it sink
Walking through the snow in the winter, the future is bleak
Two Timing Me
Friend of mine, a friend you’ll never be
I will not grow
I’d ask you boy now what would you do, nephew would you do her?
Do her for me
If I was down with everything you do would you lose him?
Lose him for me
Two Timing Me
Friend of mine, a friend you’ll never be
I will not grow
Gregory, please don’t leave
Track Name: All Last Autumn
I go to the barn be cause I like the people there
It’s alright here
On my way home, someone taps me on the shoulder:
“I saw you walking in the cold,
and baby I noticed that you could use a coat”
So they gave me the one, off their back,
you know everyone here is just like that
And they are pure as snow, at the barn
I go because I like the people there
It’s alright here
I watch those tears roll, a post conversational toll
“I saw you walking in the cold,
and baby I noticed that you could use a coat”
So I gave you the one off my back,
I’m the only here who thought of that.
You are pure as snow
I go to the barn because I like the people there
It’s alright here
Track Name: Sugar High
She don’t even know I exist
She’s all in my head
I get so caught up in the way she says “Jesse”
I get so caught up in the way she says my name
Tell your son, tell your daughter when the rain hits the water
Here in Oregon, we’re bored again
Like kids in the forest we’ll sing words to the chorus of this song
We can go start a fire, show our folks that we’re trying to be young
They can tell that we’re older from the weight on our shoulders
We have fun
Track Name: Father of Science
When I was younger I stared into the thunder
What I noticed that what I saw was just a star to someone
I started thinking of those nights when I could see so many suns
Solar System
No one is as dumb as masses joined as one
With nothing but science fiction and God to back them up
I started hoping for some truth, that I might find for someone
I’ve done my part to help in understanding
Each and everyone of us knows something
Shadows in the sun lengthening as we spin ‘round
From the time that I was born I searched the sky for answers
I want only to enhance my brother’s tenure by relaying what I find in this
solar system
What I need is just a motive so I won’t come undone
I’ve done my part to help in understanding
Each and everyone of us knows something
Shadows in the sun lengthening as we spin ‘round
Track Name: Safe Sex Summer
Lost on Halloween, surely it’s all just a dream
I don’t know what it means, but that’s just the nature of things
Guess you were right, there’s some things you can’t hide
It’s no surprise, that one thing on our minds
In another world with a younger girl, I’m in over my head
Get the coldest glance from my oldest friends, ‘cause I’m over my head
Hear the country folk tell a country joke , it goes over my head
Lure me to your place, I’ll show you it’s never too late
It only hurts a bit, like embers from matches I’ve lit
