Track Name: No Junk Culture
you keep distracting my mind
I keep on falling behind
you got no heart and you know it
now you want me blow it

they feed yo junk on T.V.
they tell you what you should be
just a foolish consumer
the world is just one big rumor

they say got to connect
or you’re irrelevant
buy it, sell it and then shit
you buy the shit so they sell it

you keep on reading the signs
you keep on dopin’ your eyes
I know a place we can cool down
we’re going down there when school’s out
yeah

you keep distracting my mind
I keep on falling behind
you got no soul and you know it
now you want me blow it

they feed yo junk on T.V.
they tell you what you should be
just a foolish consumer
the world is just one big tumor
Track Name: Nobody Really Understands
Nobody really understands
what it means to be a man
nobody really comprehends
what it takes to be a friend
nobody really cares to lend
just a little helping hand.

Nobody knows what’s goin’ on
They think they do but they’re all wrong
all I know is I don’t belong
it’s just for now, it won’t be long
nobody wants to play along
nobody even knows this song.

Now it’s too late to let you know
Just how much I need you so
And I guess you’ll never see
Just how much you mean to me….to me….

Nobody really understands
They don’t care that it’s the end
Nobody really understands
What it means to lose a friend
somebody’s gotta lend a hand
somebody’s gotta understand.

Nobody cares about me now
If they do they don’t know how
Nobody can pick me up
Only she can fill my cup
It’s over now, the jig is up
I’m a fool, I’m a chump.

I guess that now I’m free
It’s not what it’s cracked up to
she should be here in my arms
With her face and with her charms….charms…..
Track Name: The Get-Go
I took a ride
I looked inside
and all I found was myself now

I met the bride
we took a ride
she only showed me myself now
 
the books I read
all they said
was take a look at yourself now

the hearts that bled
the skins I shed 
I'll have to blame on myself now
 
I looked for kings
I looked for queens
I looked for life in the ghetto
 
I set my sails, I hit the trails
held on so tight just to let go
 
and I met Jesus, I met the Devil
they both said the same thigh though
 
"if you really need us,
you'll have to feed us,
this you must know from the get go"
 
life is a simple insanity
give as you take from humanity
forgive yourself for your vanity
vanity, vanity, vanity
 
I found the money
it taste like honey I started walking the fine line
the sky was sunny
the jokes were funny
the world sounded like a wind chime 
 
I dealt the aces
I filled up spaces
I sat and waited for I don't know
 


that's when she said "hey!
would you care to play
with me over in death's shadow?"
 
I said "yes I would"
and chopped up some wood
and built a fire in my soul line

she took me higher
I never tired
worked like a slave to make her all mine
 
and when I got sick 
we just could not click
it was time for us to let go
 
and then we parted
back where I started
just a game from the get go
 
Love is a simple insanity
give as you take from your vanity
forgive yourself and humanity

..manity, ..manity, ..manity…….Humanity Yeah!
Track Name: Professional Dreamer
professional dreamer
always on time
exceptional freedom
heaven is what you find
and why not sleep
when they’re always fighting

you could be anywhere
I see you everywhere

professional dreamer
giving is the end
directions are pointless
nothing to defend
there is a place
where there are reasons knowing

I want to go away
I want to live today
you could be anywhere
I see you everywhere
Track Name: It Don't Mean A Thing
we can’t be in the moment
it won’t last that long
if you think that you’re falling
you know you could be wrong

the universe is expanding
sometimes stardust falls
when you come in for your landing
slow down to a crawl

Chorus
It don’t mean, it don’t mean
It don’t mean a thing

the circles they are in motion
I see them spin around
you went and drank from the potion
and it’s bringing us back



not every thought is important
only the feeling’s real
I’ve got you floating in my orbit
rolling in my wheel


Chorus

I hope you find what you’re looking for
I’ve got mine and you’ve got yours

Break

Repeat 1st & 2nd Verse

Chorus

I hope you find what you’re looking for
what’s behind that other door
Track Name: Don't Walk Away
Oh, okay
there’s really nothing left to say
I won’t walk away
it’s just not true
no, no way
I’m definitely gonna stay
I won’t walk away
I’ll see this through

don’t go blind from the glare
so many roads just lead to nowhere

walk in the light
sometimes you’re gonna have to fight
don’t walk away
they’ll find you
some people pray
some just wanna make their pay
some walk away
this won’t do

don’t be shy when you’re there
so many roads just lead to nowhere

picking up the pieces of your mind
can leave you fifteen thousand miles behind
you’ll say when it is time to go
I really want to know
where did my good time go?

Oh, okay
there’s really nothing left to say
I won’t walk away
it’s just not true
no, no way
I’m definitely gonna stay
I won’t walk away
I’ll see this through
Track Name: I Got Lucky Today
Backward knocking, awkward blocking
I got lucky today
kind of shocking, forward rocking
I got lucky today
come behind you, nevermind you
hate to be this way
leave the making for the taking
what I heard you say

going to deal you, take the real you
throw the fake you away
going to steal you
won’t conceal you
turn to blue your skies of grey
run and hide, burn inside
turn the night into day
heard you cry, looked in your
I got lucky today, hey, hey hey.


Incompleteness, false discreetness
can’t wipe your sweetness away
shake the carnal beasts of sorrow
see tomorrow today
sweep the swaying, no use playing
no use to wonder what to do
stop delaying fate’s conveying
taste the wind and smell the dew

drunken lies, sunken eyes
words that fly away
blowin’ breezes never ceases
even Jesus had to say
crooked walking, backward talking
onward stalking of prey
nail my coffin, don’t mean nothin’
I got lucky today
Hey, hey, hey.
Track Name: Go Home
Pick it up and put it down

spray my love all over town
hang my feet for the company
save my seat at the jamboree
oh, oh, oh, oh

not analytical ain't got time
not too political ain't no crime
what I say is what I mean
don't need a method to keep it clean
oh, oh, oh, oh

nowhere is the ghost of right
have to get out of my sight
every day just can't be Paradise
no sly advice
on shallow ice
just go home...

got no traditions to answer to
got no mission to find what's true
only impressions of fight and flight
learn my lessons and take a bite
oh, oh, oh, oh

got a new apparatus of bulls and sheep
I state my status and sow my reap
the breathing people are all unglued
the freedom speakers just kill the mood
oh, oh, oh, oh

I see the writing on the wall
divided we land united we stall
I've got you underneath my stereo
with Cherry-O
it's time to go
go home....
Track Name: Firecracker Of Love
firecracker
firecracker of love
firecracker
firecracker of love
firecracker
firecracker, whoo
firecracker
firecracker, yeah



big things come in small packages
big things come in small packages
big things come in small packages
big things come in small packages
now

Track Name: Brown Baggin'
I promise you you’ll promise me
A simple bargain a simple plea
Who’s upstairs with the radio on?
Are those my feet I think I saw them run?

About last night we were in the wind
Can you get up and do it again?
You made a point that there is no point
Your diary is in the garbage bin

Chorus
And now you’re laid up
And you’re waiting for
Just a moment when you won’t be bored
Mashed potatoes, place your order or
See you later, what was all that for?
Brown Baggin’, I’m gettin’ back in begin
Brown Baggin’, I’m gettin’ back in begin

Why’s the Chevy convertible vertical?
It’s like bending borrowed material
You can’t be wrong if you know you’re right
It’s the method to the motive that decides the fight
When I was young I was just like you
A panting tongue, two different color shoes
When I was old you were just like me
You bought and sold and stole your luxury

Chorus
And now you’re paid up
And you’re waiting for
Just a moment when you won’t be bored
Mashed potatoes, place your order or
See you later, what was all that for?
Brown Baggin’, I’m gettin’ back in begin
Brown Baggin’, I’m gettin’ back in begin

You say you’re alright but you could be better
She’s out of sight but you won’t go get her
The alligators are waiting in the ships
Once was a waiter but couldn’t make no tips
You spent your money on a wedding gown
It sure looked funny at the lost and found
And now you’re ready you can’t wait to fly
‘cause when you’re steady you’re never ready to cry

Chorus
And now we made up
And you’re waiting for
Just a moment when you won’t be bored
Mashed potatoes, place your order or
See you later, what was all that for?
Brown Baggin’, I’m gettin’ back in begin
Brown Baggin’, I’m gettin’ back in begin
