Track Name: All Gas Must Pass
your star
may not be the biggest or brightest that there are
not by far
but you're part of a beautiful constellation

it may take some
a million light years to notice
the sparkle you have made
all the same, your very name is praised by the few
who knew

Oh, rolling ball of gas
like all things, must pass
on through
the universe
Track Name: Sailor Of The Dark Seas
journey to nowhere at all
adventurer, you have lost us all
your ship done sailed
like a coffin nail
you belong now to the sea

journey to nowhere at all
simple as that, you are gone, gone, gone
woulda been nice
if you you coulda thought twice
see you, my darling, in my dreams

in the darkness you honed your nautical skills
learned to harness the elements
and bend them to your will

there's nowhere to come ashore
just float the river for evermore
your soul is free to forever glide
like so much debris
carried out by the tide

simple as that you are gone
easy as falling off that log
you winsome flotsam
we lost some jetsom
jettisoned sailor Erickson

in the darkness you honed your nautical skills
learned to harness the elements
and bend them to your will

there's nowhere to come ashore
just float the river for evermore
your soul is free to forever glide
like so much debris
carried out by the tide

simple as that you are gone
easy as falling off that log
you winsome flotsam
we lost some jetsom
jettisoned sailor Erickson

you winsome flotsam
we lost some jetsom
jettisoned sailor Erickson
Track Name: Someone For Everyone
is there someone for everyone?
as long as your radar's on
your little blip was almost missed
so glad we slipped into a kiss
and you liked my caveman songs

twilight on the roadway
can we just drive forever?
fortune struck us rich, yeah
and also struck us down some
drive around some
hey, we found someone to
live and die for

you may not feel so strong
when all the world's gone wrong
who's gonna sing that song?
it's gonna seem so long
from where your hearts belong

I'm coming, I won't be long
Track Name: Waiting For Him
are you waiting for him?
is he coming back home?
or are you making new friends?

is the temperature fine?
is it keeping you young?
or are you withered too soon?

don't distress, your highness
'cause I'm waiting for mine
is he coming back soon?
'cause it's cold in this room
too cold for waiting


don't distress, your highness
'cause I'm waiting for mine
is he coming back soon?
'cause it's cold in this room
too cold for waiting


don't distress, your highness
'cause I'm waiting for mine
is he coming back soon?
'cause it's cold in this room
too cold for waiting

waiting...

waiting...
Track Name: Watch Where You Step
watch where you step, my friends
watch where you step, my friends
you won't be steppin there no more

you better make amends
too late to make amends
they won't be so kind to you no more

it's an easy enough
mistake to make, I guess
for someone like you

not looking underfoot
you're in a hurry, but you're gonna lose
your toesy-wosies and your little armies

watch where you step, my friends
watch where you step my friends
you won't be steppin there no more

it's an easy enough
mistake to make, I guess
for someone like you

not looking underfoot
you're in a hurry, but you're gonna lose
your toesy-wosies and your cute little armies

watch where you step, my friends
watch where you step my friends
you won't be steppin there no more
you won't be steppin there no more, no more
you won't be steppin there no more
Track Name: What
leave him alone
he ain't done nothing except say hello
just tryin' to be friendly
now you'll never know just how delightful it might have been

go on, get away
we don't want no trouble here
or you can stay, but you're gonna sit right there
I know what you're looking for, but I don't know what

makes you want it
what
makes you want it?
what
makes you want it?
what?

kid found your gun
thought it was funny to shoot up the son
there goes your money at work for you there
who's gonna keep safe your family now?

I wanna sleep
until it's all over
but I know when I wake
There'll just be more for to shake, shake, shake, shake my head
shake, shake, shake, I don't know what

makes you want it
what
makes you want it?
what
makes you want it?
what?

what?

Oh, that's not sweat. Your dreams poured out your ears on to your pillow there.
Oh, that's not sweat. Your tears of joy were just a wet deam.

what?
what?

ooh,what?
what?

Hey, what?

what

makes you want it?

what
makes you want it?

what
makes you want it?

what?

what?
Track Name: Wild At Heart
these arms could hold you tight
if I'd just climb the stairs goodnight
even though I'm here at home
I still seem to roam
I've always been wild at heart

the kids, the house, the car
give shape to where you are
but there's a look there on your face
saying, "gotta get out of this place"
you've always been wild at heart

gone are the days
wondering what life is for, you know,
we got much more than we came here for
a father and mother
a sister and brother
the gang's all here

and when we're old and greyed
and sunlight fades away
if there's a look there in your eye
I'll meet it with mine
we've always been wild
we'll always be wild
we'll always be wild at heart
Track Name: Tennessee Waltz
I was waltzing with my darling
to the Tennessee Waltz,
when an old friend, I happened to see

Introduced him to my loved one
and while they were dancing
my friend stole my loved one from me

I remember the night
and the Tennessee Waltz
now I know just how much I have lost

how I lost my little darling
while they were playing
the beautiful Tennessee Waltz
Track Name: You Were My Life
you, you, you,
you were my life, life ,life
life, and I thought, thought, thought,
thought you were mine

mine, but the truth, truth, truth
was you were hers, hers, hers,
hers all the time

when you hit, hit me
right in the face, face, face
I said, "you can't, can't hurt me"
but I lied
I was just try, try, tryin'
trying to make you love me more instead

Holy cow, kid
hold me again


Holy cow, kid
hold me again

when I saw, saw, saw
just how much worse, worse, worse
she treated you, I just,
had to laugh

I thought that I, I,
I was the one
who had it bad!

I love you, Mina
and I'm sorry
we're only human beings
with feelings after all
Track Name: Temptation
rusted brandy in a diamond glass
and everything is made from dreams
time is made from honey slow and sweet
only the fools know what it means

temptation temptation
temptaion ,
I can't resist

I know that she is made of smoke
and I have lost my way
she knows that I am broke
so that I must play

temptation temptation
temptation
I cant resist

Dutch pink and italian blue
she is there waiting for you
my will has disappeared
now my confusion's oh, so clear

temptation temptation
temptation
I can't resist
Track Name: Ice Floes
the icefloes are breaking out on to the living room rug
is there anybody under there, who's smothered there?
I'm wading knee deep to the kitchen
with the gushes of flood coming over me

the glacier's a tower that's melting, and the runoff is powering
the dim blue light casting a glow
so gloomingly slow
I'm floating out into the front yard
with balloons strung on nooses as bodyguards

hang 'em high
bye bye
hang 'em high
you're all gonna die


hang 'em high
bye bye
hang 'em high
you're all gonna die


the levers for setting the level of drainage are gone
the gears have sprung it's clear
we're soaked to the ears
our words bubbling out now to no one
a blinding white tidal wave eclipse of the sun

the angels are peeing a giddy warm greeting on everyone
that stings in my eyes and my nose
as conciousness slows
I'm getting my halo the hard way
'cause Poseidon's persuading me to stay in the sea

Hang 'em high
bye bye
hang 'em high
we're all gonna die

hang 'em high
bye bye
hang 'em high
we're all gonna die

by'n' by
I'm gonna bite somebody for sure
by'n' by
I'm gonna infect your skin with
a cool, clear cure

Track Name: Where Pennies Come From
have you sver seen a strip-mine by moonlight?
it's a beautiful sight
like a giant's escalator to the heavens

and that's where pennies come from, my love
that's where pennies come from, my sweet one

so I'm filling up a jar with that mountain to the stars
gonna trade in my car for a rainbow
and those diamonds on your ring, they're so pretty when they glimmer
you know, they didn't come from Ohio

a ten year old boy first held them alone
dug out from the silt in Sierra Leone
he was shot for stealing an older boy's boots

this town wasn't nothin
until they found somethin
they could pull out from under the soil

there's some beautiful oil fields between here and New Braunfels
on the way to Grandma's house

and you might be mistaken if you thought you were takin'
a little piece of land all to yourself
'cause there's someone up above us watching over, 'cause he loves us
just making sure nothing gets wasted

for the good of you people, and the sake of us nations
make sure you only take what you are rationed

there's no limit to what can be extruded from the earth
the only question is:
"How much is it worth?"

and that's where pennies come from, my love
that's where pennies come from, my sweet one
