Track Name: Hate & Greed
Bathed in a stream
On a mountain of greed
Lies a man
Shaking, to his knees

If we are here by some great chance
Damn we're lucky, for song and dance
If there's really no one above
Who should I thank for giving me love?
If this planet has all that we need
Why do we grace it with hate & greed?
Hate and greed

Bathed in a cove
In a river of love
Stands a man
Singing, now I'm free

If we are here by some great chance
Damn we are lucky, for song and dance
If there's really no one above
Who should I thank for giving me love?
If this planet has all that we need
Why do we grace it with hate & greed?
Hate and greed
Track Name: Cast A Spell
I cast a spell on you girl
They gonna burn us at the stake
You cast a spell on me girl
They gonna burn us at the stake, burn us at the stake

They think I am a sorcerer
They think you are a witch
They don’t know this could heal us
No they will not listen
I see them gathering up wood now
I see them gathering round the pit

I cast a spell on you girl
They gonna burn us at the stake
You cast a spell on me girl
They gonna burn us at the stake, burn us at the stake

Well we better run away now
Better fade into the night
Cuz in a few short moments
They’ll deface our whole lives
They’ll cast us as heretics
For putting our love before them

I cast a spell on you boy
They gonna burn us at the stake
You cast a spell on me boy
They gonna burn us at the stake, burn us at the stake

OoooOoooooh
Track Name: Foreign Town
I couldn’t wait to feel your warmth
Winter without you was a little harsh
We shouldn’t ever be this far apart

We haven’t been perfect, but you got my heart

I was flying high when the wheels touched down
Hadn’t seen her face in so damn long
Had to catch a train just to get around
To see my love in a foreign town
Foreign Town

Mama I ain’t coming home

After sitting in the street for an hour or two
She came to me looking all cute
I was so relieved ‘til she changed her tune
Where’s my lady she don’t talk like you?
Foreign Town

Mama I am far from home

On day one of this paradise
Said she wanted to run solo for some time
After I crossed over oceans for her eyes
I don’t think it even crossed her mind
Foreign Town

Mama I don’t know where to run

Why’d I fly on over for you to blow me up? (2x)
Oh can’t you tell me my sweet love?

Foreign town

I guess it just got lost along the way
Track Name: Who Else Do You Got Kid?
Oh love there’s a lyric in, my heart that goes like this

The groundhog doesn’t see his shadow, and I don’t see mine
Won’t look behind me, cuz now I’m blind
If I keep walking, then I’m still alive
Even if I’m rolling blind, through the cold winter night
And if I fall into a pit of snakes, Lord knows I probably will
Won’t expect to see your hand waiting on, top of a flowery hill

So you might as well be the best that you can,
Cuz who else do you got now kid?
Cuz who else do you got now kid?

And oh love there’s a lyric in, my head that goes like this

The worker ant will carry his weight, and I will carry mine
We could carry more for long long days, not for all of time
There will come a day when we lighten the load, we will roll on home
The welcome we’ll receive will be, greater than any gold
But for now it will be, a fantasy left untold
And I will be a lonesome maverick, cutting through this goddamn cold

So you might as well be the best that you can,
Cuz who else do you got now kid?
Cuz who else do you got now kid?

Who else do you got now, kid?
Track Name: Smoke A Joint
I don’t want to forget this, but I do right now
I don’t want forget you, but I do right now

For the love of God, can’t we all just smoke a joint?
Pretend like today didn’t happen for the night
Cuz I’m too damn tired of this way of life
With the blind leading blind away from the sky
Gonna save those deep thoughts for some other time
Cuz I’m a twisted up slinky looking to unwind
(Waiting to unwind)

I could live without you, but not right now
I’ll be fine without you, but not right now

For the love of God, can’t we all just smoke a joint?
Pretend like today didn’t happen for the night
Cuz I’m too damn tired of this way of life
With the blind leading blind away from the sky
Gonna save those deep thoughts for some other time
Cuz I’m a twisted up slinky looking to unwind
(Cuz I’m a twisted up slinky waiting to unwind)
Track Name: Fergus Falls
The blood of my brothers, the scent of a lover
A big fucking otter, and the care of my mother
Something tells me I am home

The ignorant man doesn’t wash his dirty hands
But you better be a fan, cuz gossip rules the land
Oh something, tells me I am home
Home, something tells me I am home

The sleep in my eyes, seems now to imply
I’ve been sleeping alright, but they’re always telling lies
Burning a hole in the ceiling to escape that funny feeling
To crawl through with my mind
I could go anywhere with it, if you weren’t like secretariat
Running on it like you got it,
But there’s no pretty bouquet, easy way, or finish line on this

That’s the thing about this place
Open up the gates to a familiar face
Sometimes you can’t escape, but you see…
This could be a resting place for a restless mind
Cuz the sky sure does shine on the prairie at night
I can’t hate too much, this is where I learned to love
I can’t relate too much, but this is where I’m from
If you’ve got to be from somewhere,
It might as well be the middle of nowhere

The blood of my brothers, the scent of a lover
A big fucking otter, and the care of my mother
Something, tells me I am home

The ignorant man doesn’t wash his dirty hands
But you better be a fan, cuz gossip rules the land
Oh something, tells me I am home
Home, something tells me I am home

Oh something, tells me I am home
Track Name: Strawberry Farmer
Took a walk through mystical trees
We were feeling alright
Had on your strawberry hat
Hell, we danced all night
Hidden in the crowd
Under shadows of moonlight

Take that trail your feet don’t touch
Hell, I’ll be there tonight
Do whatever you gotta do, to find me
Ooh, you better saddle up girl
This train is running
There’s still room for you though

Take that trail your feet don’t touch
Hell, I could see you tonight
Track Name: Euphoric Swim
I need something real, as full of wonder
As poignant as the sky
Well you think it’s a fantasy
Have you even looked up at night?
Lets all go for a swim, before this ship sinks in
And we’re left floating, in shit up to our chins
Shh, don’t you tell anyone
Shh, don’t you tell anyone

Been staring at the sun
Looking for someone
Burning my eyes
Stumbling through the night
But you think it’s a lie
I’m willing to wager it all
I’d roll it on my life
Roll it on my life
Track Name: Papa, I Seen A Ghost
When I was a young young lad
I had me ooh quite a scare
I said papa I swear I seen a ghost out there
Tell me I ain’t insane

She appeared from the freeze
Talked like she knew me
Tell me I ain’t crazy

Papa glanced and he laughed at me
Said I been there once or twice before
Don’t you worry son
You’ll be just fine
She’s a part of your memory

Before you know it
She’ll be gone with the freeze
But, with tricks still up her sleeve
She might find a way to sneak into your dreams
Don’t you worry son
You’ll be fine

When I was around 21
I had me ooh quite a scare
I said papa I swear I seen a ghost out there
Tell me I ain’t insane

She appeared from the freeze
Talked like she knew me
Tell me I ain’t crazy

Papa coughed and he laughed at me
Said I been there once or twice before
She don’t mean no harm
You just miss her arm
Clinging to her good luck charm
There’s plenty of fish in the sea
And you’ve been blessed with your daddy’s genes
And I don’t know much, but I know one thing
Don’t you worry son
You’ll be fine
Track Name: Bum Bum Badda Dun
When you woke up this morning
Put on your flowery dress
Headed out the door
To give the rest of the world, a test

You’re so,
Bum bum badda dun, badda dun

Well the world did smile
Her broken smelly teeth
And you danced all the while
To your own crazy, funky little beat

You’re so,
Bum bum badda dun, badda dun

When you woke up this morning
You planted a beanstalk
To see how high
You could climb, today

You’re so,
Bum bum badda dun, badda dun

Well, the world reared his ugly head
So you laughed at his expense
Been a lazy kid for a little while
But you're far, far, far from dead

You’re so,
Bum bum badda dun, badda dun
Track Name: Daffodil Hills
Her mama asked her to fetch a pail of water
Said he’s acting like a sailor, you shouldn’t be around your father
Go run along, and play among the daffodil hills
Where the air is light, and tears from the heavens spill
Among the daffodil hills

Among the daffodil hills
Track Name: Goof Troop's Wedding
I've been searching now for awhile
Traveling on some dark miles
Waiting on your old smile
To take your hand now, down the aisle
To hold you down

Don't you worry through the night
I'll be lying there by your side
And I'll always have your back
But, I'll never hold you back
I will hold you down

Small town kids now on a mission
Can't you hear this young heart singing?
Full of love, come have a listen
Can't you hear the church bells ringing?
Going..

I will hold you down, won't you hold me down?
I will hold you down, won't you hold me down?
I will hold you down
Track Name: No Time For Sleep
Hibernating inside to avoid the cold
With a cup full of drink, and a pipe full of smoke
Always been a dreamer, imagine growing old
With a dame on your arm, youth under your coat
And a little bit of love
Sailing your boat

This ain’t no time to go to sleep
You still got some life in your feet
This ain’t no time to rely on your dreams
You still got love blowing in the breeze
Growing in the trees, frozen in the freeze
Thawing out for the hungry summer bees
This ain’t no time, to go to sleep

Seem to be colored in a shade of blue
Crashing nightly before the evening news
Bitter not better, and it’s wearing on you
Rather just float on, escape with a snooze
To the nest you had built
Before, that old bird flew

This ain’t no time to go to sleep
You still got some life in your feet
This ain’t no time to rely on your dreams
You still got love blowing in the breeze
Growing in the trees, Frozen in the freeze,
Thawing out for the hungry summer bees
This ain’t no time. to go to sleep

This ain't no time, to go to sleep
