Track Name: Hope It Goes Away
Hope It Goes Away:

I find myself in a pretty bad place
I wish my steps could be retraced
I can feel the strained look on my face
And I can hear the confused things I say
I hope it goes away

I can show you how to piss away the day
Shed a little light on a day in the shade
You can hang around if you wanna get a taste
So you know I'm sincere when you hear me say
I hope it goes away

I know what comes to those who wait
Nothing
It only gets late
I'm just a fella who fell for the bait
As it happens I don't have much on my plate
I guess it went away
Track Name: DBYK
DBYK:

I've seen you at your very worst
Don't know why but you make me hurt
No connection, no return
I'm gonna burn, I'm gonna yearn
For your beauty

All my bones are broken
All my nerves are smoking
Can't lay low, lay low no more
So open the floodgates
Beauty, Dark Beauty, Great Beauty

Its never enough
You're my creation
All that thumping, ah you're thumping
That love love don't give a fuck
Dark Beauty…

DBYK
Track Name: Hippie Diva
Hippie Diva
Enter the Diva, The Queen of Sheba
Following the hippies no-one can see

You can have both
But both may not be better

Oh honey-diva-doll
Tell me what will please ya
With a cold degree of speed
The hippie points to Mercury

You can have both
But both may not be better
Track Name: Ring-in
Ring-in:

My ears are ringing but I don't when it began
Can't say when it began
But the suggestion is in there good

I got to get up the guts to say that
I don't have no magic words that open every door
Listen my love
I'm calling out all night
And its ringing

Well she surprised me
She's a trickster and she's good
She'll mix up what she could
And I'll try it like she knew I would

I got to get up all the guts to say
Got to get up the proper goddam guts to say
Got to summon up a lot of goddam guts to say….
I don't have no magic words that open every door
Listen my love
I'm callin out all night
And it keeps ringing

That old trickser she fooled me once, fooled me twice
She drilled it into my mind….
Track Name: Trees
Trees:

As I walked by the graveyard
I heard this song
Must have been the best one ever sung

How the trees grow longer than me
The trees will live longer than me
And in Heaven, heaven agrees
The trees will live longer than me

When I leave
I'm not thinking too much
But I still dream
Of some solution

How the trees grow longer than me
The trees will live longer than me
And in Heaven, heaven agrees
The trees will live longer than me
The trees are beyond me
Track Name: FAD
FAD:

Say what's in my heart
Say what's in my cart
Shopping at the five and dime
Mom & Pop are toiling everyday anyway

Say what's on my mind
Waitin in the line
Shopping at the five and dime
Don't feel bad for anyone anymore

We still read the same magazines
We're still in the same kind of scene
We can still be obnoxious if we want to be
We can still be out there you see
But we don't go wrong for anyone anymore

All the chances that you never took
Balancing your checkbook
Shopping at the five and dime
Rounding up your assets
Living with your regrets

Say what's in my stomach
Goin with my gut
And shoppin at the five and dime
Don't feel bad for me

We still use the same recipes
We still find the same melodies
We can still be lovers if we want to be
We can still be out there somewhere you see
But we don't feel bad for anyone anymore
Track Name: Feeling LTD
Feeling LTD:

I'm gonna backtrack diagonal
With my unborn twin
And show my limitations

Ya, the more that I show my limitations
I know my limitations
I show my limitations off

I perform my ritual
I hustle hustle
But who knows why
I'm always caught in this situation

I'm double the limit
You know my situation
This dark infatuation
The same situation

My limitations double
Track Name: Roomy
Roomy:

When your roommate comes home
Caught in the act, right
When the eggshells are gone
We can get stacked
When your roommate gets back

When your roommate gets home
You ain't alone
We can beat 'round the bush
And then get stoned
oooooo when your roommate gets home

Now when yr roommate gets home
you got a bright idea
And when you finally make it known
Yknow I gotta see ya
Yknow I wanna be there
When your roommate comes home
Track Name: Forget It
Forget it
I go to the dumps
The soot beneath my feet
Is just as black as coal
but it don't have the heat

Cuz I forget the pain

I hold a silver sword
Determined to survive
Remain through love or war
'neath the sheltering sky

I forget the pain

In a wild dream
They cut off my head
I'm always reminded
Of the way I plead

Don't forget the pain
