Track Name: Fine Fine Day
Keep your head low don't you make a sound
Goin in to check to see if anybody's around
It's a dead end road we're goin down
Bartender said the cops are bad round town

I've been runnin out of time while I'm runnin away 
I can't think of an American thing to say
I can feel my tongue tied around my brain
Chokin on smoke while I fan the flame

Just another fine fine day

Used to be here now gone is all I know
You know the left lane is my side of the road
Been bustin my ass got nothin to show
The weight of the world is such a heavy load

Don't turn me in just let it slide
I can see the want to in your eyes
Steppin in shit when your kicks are nice
Don't stop me now because I feel alright

Just another fine fine day
Track Name: Strange Heart
Shout at the moon
Ride down that ship
You gotta big hand 
Don't let it slip 
Float me down
Move me slow
Waves they move us
Down below 

Strange heart
Beats so smooth 
When you're here 
I know what to do 

Leave it to me
I got you safe & sound
Gonna take your lovin
Underneath the ground
Grow some trees
Make some bees
Do all the things
People need to see

Strange heart
Beat to the sound
Of life movin 
All around 

You're so sweet
Swayin cosmically 
Waves they rock us
Out to the sea
Driftin round
To the depths 
Long inhale  
Before we lose our breath 

Strange heart 
Beatin slow
As we sink 
Down below  
Track Name: Visionland
I inhaled and I looked outside
Laid back down and I thought I was dying
But I wasn't scared there was nothing to fear
It was all very clear that everything was alright

The lady appeared with her arms open wide
And I understood I should come inside
The room opened up and the colors ran white
I entered the place I became the light

Open your mind little sister
You've got to be kind to your brother
You can be what you want to be 
But you ain't different from no other

I opened the door I opened the gate
Everything was changing but I felt okay
Rolled down the hill when we got to the shore 
I could see the water wasn't water no more

We built our homes on some banks in the dirt
Everything is serene at the end of the earth
We've only got each other to dream on
And up in the sky god was on the phone

Open your mind little sister
You've got to be kind to your brother
You can be what you want to be
But you ain't different from no other
Track Name: Thick N' Thin
I got what I need, now I don't want nothing.
Everybody else trying to get something.
I could write a book about all the assumptions that I could do it by myself.
It takes friends in this world to survive, I've heard it said that's how we get by.
I thank them all with a hugging goodbye but I wish I could do some more.

I hope that you want it 
Think that you need it
You ain't gonna get it
If you don't lean on, someone.

Pushing and shoving on all the wrong ends, you're getting far steppin' on all your friends.
You're shaken up but that depends on if what's shakin' suits you. 
Folks these days are a little bit smarter, you got to try just a little bit harder.
I ain't an expert but here's a starter at least learn the rules of the game. 

I hope that you want it
You think that you need it
You ain't gonna get it
Cause you won't lean on

Someone who you can depend,
Who'll get ya through the thick n' thin
You know a fair weathered friend ain't no kinda friend for me, at all.

Well I don't know what I want, but I know I need something.
Everybody says they ain't got nothing.
If you want it done without all the consumptions then I can get it by myself.
It takes some friends in this world that we ride.
You look up you see the same old sky.
I tend to leave without a strong goodbye cause I always come back again.

I hope that you want it
You think that you need it
You ain't gonna get it
Cause you won't lean on
Someone
Track Name: Healin' Slow
It was long over due 
Gettin on over you 
Sleepin through the night 
With no cryin in sight 

I look out my window 
Jealous of the sun 
It just makes that wind blow
Ain't worried bout no one 
Heart healin slow 
With every word I let go 
I shake my weary head
Lay back down in my bed 

Every time I think of you 
So hard not to feel pain 
It's just that I can't do 
What was driving me insane 
It's over again 
I'm at my end 
Sweet thing I know 
It's time to let go 

Heartache & sorrow 
Can't keep goin on 
I've held my breath 
for far too long 
It's time to exhale 
Let's breath again 

How light we'll feel
When it all heals 
Lovin free once again
It'll all be better then 
Heartache no more
Walk out the door
Tears dry in the sun 
We belong to no one 
Track Name: Lonely Boy
She says when you're gone
You're really gone
I know I've been gone a long time
But I'm coming home tonight
I'm coming home

What've you been up to
I'm sick of chasing you around
And what do you do and with who
All those times that you're out of town
And when you coming home

I've been just'a travelin' 
I'd explain if I thought you'd understand
Sleeping on a stranger's floor
Cause I ain't got a home anymore
I ain't got no

Son, are you doing okay
Your voice is giving you away
When's the next time you're coming through
I'd really love to see you
I miss you
You've always got a home

Tonight I'm on an island
Too many miles in the back of a van
And I just can't sit still
Life passing by behind the wheel
Just trying to find a home
Track Name: Fun All Night
Hey babe I see ya standing in the corner
Now I'm just wonderin, if you gonna walk my way and ask me for a dance?
Hey babe you know I'm talkin to you.
Come on mama don't you leave me blue
Come back with me babe we gonna have fun all night.

You got long legs,
You know ya scramble my eggs
You got a nice warm and easy disposition too.
You got a pretty smile
Baby, please stay for a while.
Aw mama, I could be your good time man.

You're the sweetest thing I ever saw
I wanna take ya back to Ma and Pa, and show them what a pretty little thing I've found.
Hey babe I got my eye on you, now I'm just wondering, what you gonna do?
Come back with me babe we gonna have fun all night.

Sleeping most nights with a suitcase beside me
I wondered if I'd ever find the time. 
I tell you now babe, I'm not exactly cool.
I'm here now and I'm asking you, I'm sure we'll find something to do.
Aw mama, I could be your good time man.

Hey babe I see ya standing in the corner
Now I'm just wonderin, if you gonna walk my way and ask me for a dance?

Come on mama don't you leave me blue

Track Name: When It Rains
Im a rainy day man
I feel okay when it rains
When the colors kinda change
I cant help but feel the same

I think I'd really like to know ya
could be time for me to slow it down
And when there's no one else around
We won't have to make a sound 

Oh doesn't time seem to fly
We've sat and watched the clouds roll by
Did we ever stop to wonder
Where there's lightning there is thunder 

Don't you worry bout no shelter
Soon you'll realize you don't need it girl
Cause when it really starts to pour
I'll be knocking at your door

I'll be your rainy day man
You'll feel okay when it rains
When the colors kinda change
You can just call out my name

When the sun it starts to rise
You can see there is no silver lining 
Then the rain it starts to dry
We will know we've done our time
And the wind will subside
Yeah, we will know we've done our time
Track Name: Still and Quiet
Last night I had a dream 
The sky turn into the sea
We lived for eternity 
And we were all deities 

No pain ever touched a soul
We knew how to lose control 
Embrace what we do not know 
And love careless, soft & slow

Last night I saw the sun
Before anything we'd done 
She smiled down on everyone 
Creating warmth as she spun 

We were so free at ease shared everything and there was love

I awoke to find the world so behind of what we knew it could be 
I awoke to find the world so behind of what we knew it could be 

Last night I saw the light 
Shone into the sea so bright 
Refractions from blue to white 
Breathing in still & quiet 

We were free so at ease shared everything and there was love

I awoke to find the world so behind of what we knew it could be 
I awoke to find the world so behind 
Of what we knew we could be

And we knew we were lovers 
And were good to each other 
We could still recover 
There's still time to wonder  
Stop killin all your brothers 
Embrace one another 
We could still recover 
We knew we were lovers 
And we knew 
Track Name: DDT
Lately I've been having trouble every time I try to sleep
I've tried meditating, medicating, even counting sheep
But it seems that every time I try to lay down in my bed
A voice keeps whispering something in my head
It says boy be careful what you do and say
Well, you never know you might just die today

I can't help but think about why this got to happen to me?
You know I was ridin easy now I'm movin bout as fast as a tree.
It seems every time I try to go the wheels start rollin slow.
Am I cursed with bad luck?
I don't know.

I never learned to take the careful way
I better soon cause I might just die today. I better soon cause I might just die today. All I know is I don't wanna die today.

My baby tried to tell me I was living life too fast
"You know the way you're livin just ain't enough to last"
I said, "What's wrong with you honey don't you like fun? 
Gettin round is so easy when all you do is run" 
He said, "Mama, I know you like your way, but you better slow down so you don't die today"
You better slow down so you don’t die today.
All I know is I don’t wanna die today.
All I know is I don’t wanna die today.
