Track Name: Old Mill Park
Pass the time away, pass the time
The beats the lost and wandered I
By the creek we built our boats
Yours of leaves and mine was made from dandelion stems and bark
Pass the time away, pass the time

By chance someday, when we both fall apart
I’ll meet you back at Old Mill Park

Drifting on a lark, drifting on
That caught the frightened lonely I
In the park with children’s’ games
You had guns I had an aeroplane that flew a perfect arc
Pass the time away

By chance someday, when we both fall apart
I’ll meet you back at Old Mill Park
I’ve come a long, long way
To get back where I started
Where redwoods loom
And red-tails roam the open skies…. The open skies
Track Name: Dog Named Bart
Right there walking
My lovely girlfriend

She is the one, she is my four leaf clover

Her eyes, reflect affection
In my eyes, lustful attraction

She is the one, she is my four leaf clover
Let’s settle down, these are the best days of our lives

(bridge)

So come here right now
And kiss me on my mouth

You are the one, you are my four leaf clover
Let’s settle down, we’ll get a dog and name him Bart
Track Name: Hole in the Ceiling
I tore a hole, I tore a hole in the ceiling
I tore a hole cuz I’m tired of sleeping not dreaming

Faster than light, faster than humans are breeding
I touched a star with the tip of my arguments’ meaning

Oh to be young
Not to be old is what we are told
What a laugh

I’ve been a part, I’ve been a part of the problem
I’ve been a partner to govt. slaughter of dark ones

Always we’re right, always the overachiever
The smartest in school is the bully there
Too bad if you’re not us

Oh to be young
Not to be old is what we are told
And that life is just for kicks
When we all know that is bullshit
Track Name: Brown Eyes
Brown eyes (refrain)

Brown eyes…
The curve of your sides
Drink from the cups that are your lips
And your pretty little tits


My hands the size of your waist
Sunday morning, let’s make that bed of yours shake
There is no sign of my ghosts
Your love come along and scared them back in their holes

Brown eyes….
Track Name: Low Roller
Low Roller

For everything I want, I will have to try
Nothing comes for free, always there’s a price
For taking bad advice

I was born to laugh, also known to cry
Living in between, living for tonight
Living for today

I fought the laws of distraction
I kept the wolves at bay
For every Oscar I’m given twice I fail, thrice I fail
I raised an insurrection when the coup de etat derailed
My younger ways of dealing out the window what the hell
My fortunes are fairly well
My voice as it travels farther on better songs
And a horn to play when the words have come and gone

Turn the lights down Ma
Turn the lights out cuz we’re sleeping
Turn the lights down Ma cuz it’s time that we go to bed
Then the lilac calls and she wants you to believe her
Then the lilac calls so you follow her down the lane…
