Track Name: Hippie Blanket
Danger with rodeo spurs I've got my pedal pressed down to the floor,
Always when this occurs women say I'm an eye soar,
Till they follow me around,
make love on the ground,
this hippie blankets got to go,
maybe we should wash this thing,
I dont think so!
Lately this Texas heat is biting me at the skin,
snake juice in my glass nobodys going to win,
let it slide into your canvas,
Looks like Kurt Rambus,
This Hippie Blankets got to go
you know man I think we should wash this thing,
This Hippie Blankets got to go,
I dont think so!
Track Name: Family Vacation
Some place else it doesnt matter to me,
Just some motel with full vacancy,
Beat up curtains and love stained bed,
I'd rather be here than home instead,
I wouldn't call this a family vacation,
We're here to have a good time,
Love me for the duration,
Show me your astrological sign
and I'll show you mine,
Pacific Northwest let me thumb for a drive,
my hairs ratting out and I feel alive,
got a bag full of mangos and a pocket full of seeds,
I'll stop over later let me in please let me in please!
I wouldn't call this a family vacation,
we're here to have a good time,
love me for the duration,
show me your astrological sign,
and I'll show you mine.
Track Name: Carolina
Out for breakfast, left my wallet in the bathroom of a diner,
now I'm stranding at the bus stop thumbing trucks for Carolina,
walk the beaches, lonely beaches, dip my hand in and pick up creatures,
the sun is fading, the tide is closing, I'm in the dunes dosing off.

Since I left town, my friends grow older,
My dog is gone, my girlfriend sold her,
southern accent, surfers body,
I built a bike and met my hawtie,
sleep till noon, wake the brain up,
Turkish coffee fills my cup,
Sent a letter, did you get it?
nothing special but don't forget it now.
Track Name: Nude Earth
Fancy type of spot,
Feel like an astronaut,
climb inside a ship,
and my spacesuit rips,
(there must be some duct tape)
or else I'll float in the atmosphere naked for the Earth,
It's kind of refreshing back where I was at birth,
crying in mama's arms, crying in mama's arm

If I fail the test,
I'll be your dinner guest,
feed me all of your food,
I'll be that mooching dude,
(there must be some hand-outs)
or else I'll float in the atmosphere naked for the Earth,
It's kind of refreshing back where I was at birth,
crying in mama's arms, crying in mama's arm
Track Name: Circuit City
Sinking in the quicksand,
I'm just a poor poor man,
cut my long sleeves off,
rocking with my two guns out,

Jeezum crow, how was I supposed to know,
when you going to Circuit City?
my electrical wires are getting gritty,

I'm drowning in Tropicana,
missed my flight to Atlanta,
got my eyebrows waxed,
I need my dentures faxed,

Jeezum crow, how was I supposed to know,
when you were going to Circuit City?
my electrical wires are getting gritty,

I'm no gamer,
I like to write rock n roll songs,
Im not much of a dreamer,
I fixate on all of my wrong behaviors,
I'm not much of a lover,
I'm shy and awkward in front of women,
Now I'm more sociable than ever,
but I'm no Jeremy Piven,

Jeezum crow, how was I supposed to know,
when you were going to Circuit City?
my electrical wires are getting gritty,
Track Name: Gina Gerrin
Some of us we don't connect,
We've got no quarters so we call collect,
and when you pick up on the other side,
you try to bum me for a ride to work,

I'm impartial I love you both the same,
give you my umbrella in the pouring rain,
Don't make me choose between you 2 again,
Don't break my meditation, my naked zen,

Gina Gerrin,
The soul of existence,
I saw you from afar,
thats when I made up my mind,
I reached for your hand,
a paw to hold onto,
you walked away,
I guess I just don't understand yand yand yand yand.

No other options,
I was lost in the hood,
tried to make some friends in East Englewood,
paced back and forth with nothing else to do,
contemplated again and again if I should call you,
Instead I visited my sister and my baby niece,
thats where I found my much needed peace,
some advice you hold on to, sometimes you forget,
Gina you were the first girl I ever met,


Gina Gerrin,
The soul of existence,
I saw you from afar,
thats when I made up my mind,
I reached for your hand,
a paw to hold onto,
you walked away,
I guess I just don't understand yand yand yand yand.
Track Name: Digs Swamp Pop (November 2007)
I met a girl at the swimming ground,
she bit my ear I heard a heinous sound,
I've never heard of such cannibal girls,
you can win them over with aesthetic pearls,
but not this one,
she enjoys SWAMP POP,

Take my advice and go take a dip,
in the blue lagoon you'll find some cherry lips,
and if she bites, bring her home to mom,
we offered pie but we all want some,
but not this one,
she enjoys SWAMP POP


In the winter I'd advice you to wear a wetsuit,
you can fish her but reel in a boot,
she's a summer babe, she's not an ordinary dane,
she makes the fisherman go insane,
shes' a marlin,
she enjoys Swamp POP
Track Name: Shaking off the Mountains Mist
Send away for a decoder
Decoder rings are really rad,
catalog it in a folder,
the operation went bad, the operation went bad

Hide away in the Dakota's,
under Mount Rushmore,
left it in a silver boulder,
next to Roosevelt's beard, next to Roosevelt's beard,

Standing ovation when I summersault down Everest,
shaking off the mountains mist,
soaked to the bottom,
I strip down my nakedness,
shaking off the mountains mist, shaking off the mountains mist,

Broke through my office window,
shattered glass on the floor,
need to load up on my ammo,
consult my mentor, consult my mentor

there's a tan line on my finger,
tears in my eyes,
these thoughts still linger,
I've lost my secret disguise, i've lost my secret disguise,

Standing ovation when I summersault down Everest,
shaking off the mountains mist,
soaked to the bottom,
I strip down my nakedness,
shaking off the mountains mist, shaking off the mountains mist
Track Name: Roman Candle
See a roman candle fly into the breeze,
see my cousin Phyllis spin a wheel of cheese,
might as well spend what money I have on our day off,
might as well smoke that last cigarillo and share our cough,
is this an achievable relationship, or are we passing time?
if so, thats fine, alright alright with me

see the mailman slip into the grass,
see my dog Arthur attack him extra fast,
might as well sort through my old shoes and wear them thin,
might as well play a couple more hands I'm sure I'll win,
Is this an achievable relationship or are we passing time?
If so, thats fine, alright alright with me.
Track Name: Babes on the beach
babes sitting on the beach,
what babes?
babes there are sitting on the beach.
Track Name: Help Wanted Ads
Out of work It's early light,
got no plans but thats alright,
head up town, the aquarium,
meet my friends Jim and Mariam,
It's been decades since I was here,
I've aged quite alot this year,

They don't teach you how to save away,
I dont know how,
They don't teach you to do it your own way,
I dont know how,
find me in the help wanted ads

Sooner or later I find some work,
where the homeless like to lurk
under the highway,
unchartered land,
try to steady my shaky hand,
meet the sun with youthful eyes,
it takes time to realize,


They don't teach you how to save away,
I dont know how,
They don't teach you to do it your own way,
I dont know how,
find me in the help wanted ads
Track Name: Black Mannequin
space never needed air,
visit me when I'm in elder care,
see you buying groceries,
always unaware,
wait on the temple stairs,

high charge on my electric bill,
more expensive than my crazy pills,
see you in the mirror,
try not to stare,
wait on the temple stairs,
wait on the temple stairs.
Track Name: A Can of Brown Beans, Please (2011)
blind me , blind me, if you have to,
but don't ya take my hearing, because thats something I'm fearing.
