Track Name: Weed's My Air Conditioner
Weed's my air conditioner
I requisitioned a spot
For you and me
To stare into the sun
Our sunglasses on
Our blindfolds unfurled
A world to be seen
Big, round, blue and green

I am your flight attendant
And we're about to take off
So take off your shoes
Your shirt and pants too
Remove all your thoughts
And toss them to me
We'll globe-trot the globe
Big, round, blue, green

You are my handsome cosmonaut
Showing worlds I forgot
I wanted to see
Bring yourself to me
(mumbling crap) the stars
And (Of?) far galaxies
And us in between
Big, round, blue, green
Track Name: Why Cry?
I suppose there's a purpose
I suppose there's a way
I suppose there's a time for it
I suppose it's today

Why cry
Why cry when it doesn't do no good
You just have to try

I suppose it's a burden
One no one will ever know
I suppose this for certain
It's a shitty episode

Why cry
Why cry when it doesn't do no good
You just have to try
You just have to try

You can request a reason for the cross you have to bear
Won't it leave you crest fallen when your reason isn't there

Why cry
Why cry when it doesn't do no good
You just have to try
You just have to try
You just have to try
Track Name: Godbless the Ruby Breasted and the Sparrow
Godbless the ruby breasted and the sparrow
Lord knows we'd miss them
Maybe not today or tomorrow
Someday we'd say hey where'd they go

Godbless what's in your chest and your bone marrow
Lord knows we'd miss them
Maybe not today or tomorrow
Someday we'd say hey where'd they go

Godbless those who've been bested by their sorrow
Lord knows we'll miss them
Maybe not today or tomorrow
Someday we'd say hey where'd they go
Track Name: There Is No Truth and No True Love
There is no truth and no true love
There's qualities of youth and blood
Criteria we're ashamed of
But there is no truth and no true love

There's the moon and colder distant places to sing to
A waste of time and lung
There's no truth and no true love

There's faces made of bone and hide
There's vainy brains contained inside
There's hearts and other ugly stuff
But there is no truth and no true love

There's greeting cards and hard on pics
There's one-liners and worn out schticks
There's dicks who trick you into thinking
You're in love when you've been drinking

Winky and shocked faces sent
Content the sender never meant
The only thing I'm certain of is there is no truth and no true love
Track Name: You're Alright (Doing Fine)
Someday you're gonna say that you're alright, doing fine
Count your blessings and sing to Jesus Christ every morning
Get up bright as the sun
Party til day is done
Many years from your stage right

Someday you're gonna pay for taking it all for granted
Hold your head down and say, "Well, I'm ok!"
But repent it
Don't go feeling so bad for the past that you've had
Let your future turn out right

Someday you're gonna say that you're alright
Shake your locks in the rays of pure sunlight
Turn that frown upside down
Let all your walls come down
Change your side from wrong to right
Track Name: Leaving Town
He looked me in the eye and said I care
And now he's nowhere to be found
How dare he get me and then let me down
Screw the loser I am leaving town

I was weak and needing vital parts
To his heart half of my own was bound
When it broke it barely made a sound
While it's still beating I am leaving town

He loved me blushing obligation free
He liked just having me around
A card. A quickly discarded clown
I'll leave him laughing. I am leaving town.
Track Name: I Was Tricked Into Thinking I Was Slick
I was tricked into thinking I was slick
Thought I had it all down pat
This is this and that is that
Ethics a science exact
Black and white
If it's wrong, then it ain't right
Just like night is never day
Though twilight is gray as shit
So is life so deal with it

I was fooled from elementary school
The golden rule don't work if you
Don't see things the way I do
I'll treat you like you want to be
Common sense ain't the same for you as me
Though some things we may agree upon, there many we differ on
And that's alright
Whatever gets you through the night
Live and let live, that's what I say
Your mommy's poor. Your daddy's gay.
That's true I think I see your point now

I was tricked into thinking I was slick
What a prick was I to think I could feel the way you feel
You can't be real and be abstract
After all, no one knows you like you do
Track Name: I'm in the Wrong (Hallelujah!)
To be in the wrong, I want to
Joy over myself and you too
Blue eyes in the rain ain't crying
Sighing hallelujah
Solemn halleuljah

Amen! I'm in the wrong!
Amen! I'm in the wrong!

You're in the right
My pilot light
I know you're always with me
And know things more correctly

No more doubt or second guessing
Furtive thoughts worth keeping or confessing
Yessing and head nodding gone too
Just the hallelujah
Solemn hallelujah

Amen! I'm in the wrong!
Amen! I'm in the wrong!

You're in the right
My pilot light
I know you're always with me
And know things more correctly
Track Name: Screaming the Way That I Love You
Screaming the way that I love you
Would change frequencies you can hear
So near my siren song siren
You'll hear me til I disappear completely

How sweetly my whiskers brush up against your ear

ooooooooooooooooh
ooooooooooooooooh
ooooooooooooooooh
oooooooooooooooooooooh

I can feel myself inside you
Writhing you're finding your spot
So I can take from you wholly
Your body and finally your thoughts

Forgotten some cold and far day
But now you're under my control
My fingers are plucking your heartstrings
I have a thumb on your rotten soul

How sweetly you grip my wrist as I play inside

ooooooooooooooooh
ooooooooooooooooh
ooooooooooooooooh
oooooooooooooooooooooh

Where I go after I leave you
Is truly none of your concern
In this moment I am all yours
And you will be all mine in return

How sweetly I make my way after my goodbye
Track Name: The World is a Beautiful Place
Endless and bucolic, all the things you can't define
Wouldn't you rather that your mind
Be full of all the images you behold in your eye
Endless and bucolic all the time

The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place in space and in time!

I don't know the kinds of birds or leaves above my head
I know their gorgeousness instead
And I know how often people let themselves forget
The good times haven't nearly ended yet

The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place in space and in time!

Why should I define all the beauty that I see
And attribute false identity
To things beyond their meaning, what God meant them to be
I only know what they mean to me

The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place in space and in time!

The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
The world is a beautiful place!
