Track Name: in the woods
sky so blue
sun burning bright
sky so blue
clouds fluffy and white
i'm lazily sleepin on the lawn
cause there ain't too much else goin' on
here, here in the woods

unlocked doors, less trees than before
street names from the civil war
little kids chase the birds and bees
moms and dads walk the dogs that ain't got flees
here, here in the woods

dandylions and cigarettes
memories and regrettes
suppose their lost here in the woods
in the woods
Track Name: love to fly
dance to the music in your head
sing the words that you've never said
close yer eyes and see what can't be seen
wide awake you fall into a dream

where i live in the sky
you should do yourself a favor and stop by
you know i'll tell you no lies
come with me and i'll show you how to fly
come with me and we'll go for a ride

when you start staring down to yer shoes
and all you see is a soul wearing through
just close yer eyes and open up your mind
you'd be surprised to see what you'd find


where i live in the sky
you should do yourself a favor and stop by
you know i'll tell you no lies
come with me and i'll show you how to fly
come with me and we'll go for a ride
come with me and i'll show you how to fly
i know yer gonna love to fly
cause everybody loves to fly
loves to fly
Track Name: o'betty's
O'betty so pretty
o'betty i'll eat you up
Oh girl you me gitty
oh girl fill me up

o'betty so nice
o'betty i'm stopping by tonight

grease me up hot cause i'm feeling chilly
go on take my picture and i'll say cheese
print it out and put it on my table if you please

o'betty so nice
o'betty i'm stopping by tonight

oh girl cook me up right
like you did last night
like you did last night
Track Name: on the road that's running in the rain
on the road that's running in the rain
splashing up on sewer drains
on the road that's running in the rain
where strobeing snap shots shine through your brain, it's so strange

make the road seem rampid with rage
remember the streaks on the window are just rain
believe in the lights that are lighting your lane
and remember red and green will always change

with a glazed gaze in a haze
i was unfazed passing corn field graves
everyday in the same old daze
forever locked those rock they now are paved

on the road that's running in the rain
slow goes in this headlight show
on the road that's running in the rain
where round and round and round we go
round and round and round we
but slow it goes in headlight show
Track Name: tumbleweed
oh, mr. tumbleweed
i never know what you mean
your words are the wind
that's blowing through your teeth
out into the street
being trampled under feet

oh i can't even hear you greet
the coming sunrise
but i see fear in your eyes
i see fear in your eyes

no it's not me
for it's true how i see
you ain't nothing but
a tumbling weed
your weak
weak as your arguments
you wear as your armament
that we pierce right through
with arrows of truth
and truth is through with you

oh, bundle of hay
what you got to say
do you think you got a plan
to be the people's man
cause i don't think so
your just another scarecrow
your just another scarecrow
Track Name: what lies behind
slide into another's shoes
slip on their socks too
go on check out the view
see from where they're looking at you

don't be surprised
when seeing your eyes
blue colors they do lie
veneering clearly what's wise

and why you'll never know
no you'll never know
what lies behind

slip into another day
slide out and far away
but you will still stay
forever in your skin that way

and why you'll never know
no you'll never know
what lies behind
another's eyes
in their mind
no you'll never truly find
what lies behind
Track Name: wilson's blues bridge
wilson blues bridge
wilson blues bridge
wilson blues bridge
got me down again

bonnie where have you been
bonnie where have you been
bonnie where have you been
cause i'm still waiting
