Track Name: Lipstick and Coffee
Lipstick and coffee stains familiar
Your feet will take you where you wanna go
Summer is bloomin' all around
The most beautiful day you've ever found

I will take you for a ride
We will laugh until the sun hides
Say whatever's on your mind
Here there's no such thing as time

The grizzlies and the hummingbirds
Living a life outside of words
You and I we're just the same
Before you think it I know what you'll say

I will take you for a ride
We will laugh until our tears run dry
Smell of redwoods in your mind
Here there's no such thing as time

No one here can break your heart
No one here can let you down
No one else can ever make you feel a thing

It doesn't matter if the wind blows
Your thoughts will take you where you wanna go
Sunrise is bloomin' all around
The most beautiful day you've ever found

I will take you for a ride
We will laugh until we're satisfied
Say whatever's on your mind
Here there's no such thing as time
Track Name: Grapefruit Pie
Ya got me up all night hiding from the morning light stars in my head blue and purple green and red got me saying stupid things no idea what they mean cause my brain's been fried like grapefruit pie

I'm laughing at the songs playing into the dawn cause the words are tellin a story like it's been written all along you got me taking it slow holding you so close a strange gravity all the way to my toes

This is unexpected
How could I be unaffected by your twinkling eyes?

Aint it funny how life will kick you in the teeth then remind you what a miracle it is just to breathe? breathe with me sounds so simple but it's complicated too you got me dumbfounded astounded up and down and all around it

This is unexpected
How could I be unaffected by your mercury mind?

I'm sniffing glue and it smells like you
I'm sniffing glue and it smells like you
Breathe with me, be whoever you want to be
Breathe with me, be whoever you want to be

This was so unexpected...
Track Name: Change
The future is paralyzed
Efficiency is on the rise
I can't look into your eyes
and see me there anymore

Change has come and taken
all the faces that I used to see
Change is taking everything
to where it needs to be
in spite of me

Up there on the Golden Streets
Where they play golf in golden cleats
Do they ever get bored with total Peace
and come down here to try again?

Change has taken off my plates
and change it doesn't hesitate
Change is taking everything
to where it needs to be
Eternally

The fishtank and the birdcage
Left out back like some forgotten age
If you ever get over your painted rage
I'll be the first one to congratulate

Change has taken off my plates
and Change it doesn't hesitate
Change is taking everything
to where it needs to be
In spite of me

I would like to see you again
I would like to see you shine
I would like to see you again
I would like to see you shine
Track Name: Slow Down
Slow down girl you move too fast
You know you can't bring this moment back
All the busy bees buzzin' in your mind
What ya running from, what ya trying to find?

All the games, all the games you play
Maybe what you need is to get laid
Take your weapons off, throw em anywhere
Let down your guard and your hair

Everybody's heart's been kicked and shoved
Blame ignorance but not love
You can blame ignorance, but not love

Hey now now, slow down girl...
Track Name: Indigo
Fly through the ripples and bluffs
(from now all of you forward)
Sigh like you can't get enough
(was it something so meaningful?)
Smile like you got nothing left
(no you'll never confess)
Hold, hold it close to your chest

Now that the end is in sight
Pick up your crutches and fly
Through the indigo night
Will you always remember the
Smile in your heart?

It's all just a dream
Strange as it seems
It's all just a dream
Craziest Dream

Indigo
I don't know
Anything
Track Name: San Simeon
Meet me in San Simeon
Meet me in oblivion
Meet me at the edge of time
Meet me as a friend of mine

Meet me in the pouring rain
Meet me in a hurricane
Meet me in an earthquake
Meet me on a tidal wave

Nothing's forever but the tide
Everybody's waiting for the Light to shine

Meet me with yer checkered past
Meet me in a photograph
Meet me in outer space
Meet me when you fall from grace

Meet me with your poison kiss
Meet me with an amethyst
Meet me in a crowded line
Meet me at closing time

Meet me in a lightning storm
Meet me when you can't conform
Meet me on the seven seas
Meet me in a Mystery

Meet me in the summertime
Meet me in a diamond mine
Meet me at the pearly gates
Meet me before it's all too late

Nothing's forever but the tide
Everybody's waiting for the Light to shine on

We belong together
Nothing is forever
We belong together
Track Name: Monterey (took my baby away)
Monterey, Monterey
Took my baby away
Sea is green, sky is grey
Took my heart in the month of May

Who's to say, who's to say
It would've worked out anyway?
Sky is blue, sea is gray
Took my heart and sailed away

Just as long as she's happy
I won't worry anymore
Tell yourself something long enough
start to believe that it's true
Tell yourself something long enough...

Monterey, Monterey
Took my baby away
Sky is red, sea is grey
Took my heart in the month of May
Track Name: Quincy
Hello, my name's Quincy
Do you want to play?
I've been waiting
Waiting here all day, day, day

I know you think i'm crazy
I just get excited
See it's not that often that i'm invited
Somewhere, where, where

We could run away forever
Runnin through the burrs and leaves together
Chasin anything that moves
Bark at anything we choose
You and me through the trees, free
You and me through the trees, free

Come on, open the gate man
I won't hurt no one
I can hardly contain myself
Thinkin of all that fun, fun, fun

We could run away together
I'll be your best friend forever
Chasin anything that moves
I'll slobber right on your shoes
You and me through the trees, free
You and me through the trees, free

Hello, my name's Quincy
Don't you want to play?
Track Name: Heavy Grudge
Why do you carry that thing around?
I bet it really brings you down
Such a heavy heavy heavy grudge

I wouldn't take you for a fool
But there is poison inside you
Such a heavy heavy heavy grudge

I wonder why it gives you fuel
I wonder if it's really true

Why would you carry that thing around
I hope you'll talk and lay it down
Such a heavy heavy heavy crutch

I wonder why it gives you fuel
I wonder how much of it's true...
Track Name: Anyway
If you care about somebody else
don't lie to them
When the sun is going down
you have a friend
Ah the river flows on
Anyway the river flows on

Nothing can trouble you
as long as you are aware
There is no you to be troubled
it's only fear that is scared
Ah the river flows on
Anyway the river flows on

Somethin in the sweet smell of a creek
sends me right on in
And whenever the world gets all tangled up
I'm down by the creek again
Thank you for the tangled up
because it brings me here
Thank you for the madness
and the water running clear

Anyway the river flows on
Anyway the river flows on
Track Name: Row
We sailed for days, the ocean never changed
Across the sea of time we travelled far and wide
Now for the first time the sail's down the anchor's hit sand
The air in my chest hesitates at this moment's command

Row, we're going ashore
Don't know what's in store
Find out when we get there...

I'm sent by the queen and the glory that it brings
You wouldn't know me but soon the world will see
The treasure and riches could be beyond all belief
Could be the devil's own palace but soon we will see

Row, we're going ashore
Don't know what's in store
Find out when we get there

Born into a world new
Torn in two a world new

A dream, jungles of green, white sand like never seen
Cast my eye into a million shades of blue
The natives run naked as shameless and free as the birds
That sail the same winds that brought us here to the edge of the world

Row, we're going ashore
(Pull at one thing, the whole world's connected)
Don't know what's in store
(Look what's begun here, lost and shipwrecked it)
We'll find out when we get there
Track Name: Hope You Find
I got your lighter that you left
I'll use it to light this cigarette
and watch some birds fly across the sky
They never have to question why

I hope you find what you're looking for
Hope you find what you're looking for
is worth what you left behind
So long babe, I'll see you down the line

Wake up in the dark of night
At 4 am can't tell what's right
Aint no movement, there's no sound
of your breathing around

I hope you find what you're looking for
Hope you find what you're looking for
is worth what you left behind
So long babe, see you down the line

All the strangers love your room
But to me it's more like a tomb
Aint no preacher aint no grave
But your heart's already lifetimes away

Hope you find what you're looking for
is worth what you left behind
So long babe, see you down the line

Spring is coming on so fast
The snow is melting from the pass
One day I'll be happy that you left
One day be grateful for this mess

I hope you find what you're looking for
Hope you find what you're looking for
is worth what you left behind
So long babe, I'll see you down the line
Track Name: What We Think
We are not what we think we are
We are so much less and more

Once I was a millionaire
I had mansions beyond compare
But i could not see the light of day
Could not taste the food I ate

We are not what we think we are
We are so much less and more

Once I was a prison guard
I kept watch above the yard
But I could not see the light of grace
that still shined on every face

We are not what we think we are
We are so much less and more

All the fears and doubts
All the ins and outs
Refugee or King, don't mean a thing
Don't mean a thing

We are not what we think we are
We are not what we think we are
We are not what we think we are
We are so much less and more
