1. OLIVE

Come in
Right this way...
Sit down...
Martini?
Stir your drink?

Olive?




2. MOUNTAIN

Nerves on fire, nothing is a sneaker...
Everything is catastrophe
That bump in your armpit is Cancer
That bump was turbulence
I guess it starts again

There is no reason for nostalgia,
Everything is still happening,
There is no reason for memory

The step, a choice.
I wish everything could have worked out
The way you wanted it to
It's so tragic...so beautiful...
When everything is so hollow
Think of going home.

You are so beautiful to me
You are so beautiful to me
So far, i've logged so many hours
With medications and the dog
You are so beautiful to me

So far, I've lost so many hours,
Two medications and a dog

It's just another mountain!
Just another mountain!

Just another weakness




3. EARTH DAY

Eat your beets, recycle...recycle...
Don't eat your beets, recycle...recycle

The message is; 'there is no message

Babe, you better not ever think,
Staring into the drink...get out of my mind...
Cause I may not be the one to say,
Is there no other way we could do this another day?

I saw God.

She said...'If you don't believe me,
Guaranteed you'll never leave me'
On your way, and out of my time
But I didn't even know if it was true
Or just a result of chemicals

Shut up and think of something more important to say...
'Sometimes I think that in every straight there's a gay!' Something or nothing a whole either way it's a way,
It's a way, it's a way, it's a way, it's a way
Earth day, earth day, earth day, earth day
It's a way, it's a way, it's a way, it's a way
Earth day, earth day, earth day, earth day

It's like your birthday, it's on Earth Day,
Like a child you're born again,
Little child you're bored again...
It's your worst fucking day, it's on Earth Day...
Little lies to cover up...please make your mind up

(Eat your beets, Recycle...recycle...)
(Don't eat your beets, recycle...recycle)

Man Overboard (I'm so far away)
Man overboard (I'm so far...)
But fuck it!
I really don't care
Fuck! Listen to me! Just shut the fuck up!

Peace, Love, Joy
Man overboard (I'm so far...)
Hate, hell, war
Hate, love, love, hate, love, hate...destruction!

So just shut your face and take a seat
Because after all, you're just talking meat...and music?
Well, it's just entertainment folks.

Sometimes I think that I really have something moreto say...
Sometimes I think that in every straight there's a gay!' Forgive me for saying it blows either way, it's a way,
it's a way, it's a way, it's a way, it's a way...

It's your birthday, it's on Earth Day,
Like a child you're born again,
Little child you're cold again...
It's your worst fucking day, it's on Earth Day
Little child your time is up...please turn the heat up

You need your beets, you recycle...
Don't eat your beets...recycle...

Man overboard...
I'm so far away...




4. DEEP PEACE

It's alright to cry
It's alright to lean on everyone
It's alright to lie in the bed you've made for everyone

And anytime you need someone,
Anytime you heed someone
Anytime you need me babe, I will be there.

It's alright to die
It's alright to bleed on everyone
It's alright this time
It's all life, you learn from everyone

With every single time you go
And every single line you blow
Anytime you need it man, I won't be there

(inside the picture of the huge, sterile balck
And white diner on a rainy Sunday afternoon in chinatown)

It's all going away now
All going away now
Going, going...gone
Going, going...gone

It's alright to cry
It's alright to feed on everyone
It's alright to hide,
In your cozy bed from everyone

So anytime you need it man,
Get inside and be it man...
Anytime you call,
Suffer!




5. CANADA

The road,
It's home,
At least for now, the rivers low

Wake me, please wake me,
It's cold and warm on the prairie freeway

All the time I needed your approval to be me
All that time spent waiting for the jury duty...
More than ever I needed Mora
More than Mora means...
Be whatever you must be to get by

It's oil, It's wheat, It's soil, It's meat
It's beef!

The road, it's home, the mountain high, river low...
Wake me, please wake me,
When it's my turn to drive
Only the lonely (and maybe John Denver)
Know the Canadian freeway.




6. DOWN AND UNDER

(Instrumental)




7. THE FLUKE

I am a Fluke in the world
I haven't spoken a single word
I'll have to wade through the bullshit
Baby just to find my own vision of pearl
I am a fluke in your world
And even tho it's a bit absurd
I've been living in a dreamworld man
And I hope you'll enjoy what I've heard

Can't you see through me?
Can't you hear through me?
Just a moment in time...

Freak!
Fluke!

Down and under I've felt the toll
You can't hurt me any more

I'm not afraid of you anymore!

Can't you see through me?
Can't you hear through me?
Corona without a lime.




8. NOBODY'S HERE

Hello, it's good to see you here
Come in, can I offer you a beer?
And they say this what it's like forever
Roll this up, it's deadly...
To feel, feel like there's nobody here
Feel like there's no more fear
I wanna feel like this for a year...
Feel like there's nobody here...

Why can't I remember?

Heroes, they take my breath away
Zero the dials
See how a breakdown breaks ground
And zeros the miles




9. TINY TEARS

Baby baby, don't you cry
Wipe away that tear from your eye
Sailing on a sea of blue
In my dreams theres a place for me and you

Baby babe don't say a word
In this life you get all that you deserve
I'm sorry that I made you cry
I can't believe that I'm just an ordinary guy

When all is said and done
It's all only won by one

And now i'm 29 years old
And i'm a million miles away

Hey babe, don't treat it like it's a fucking luxury.

Baby babe, don't say a word
In this life you get all that you deserve
I'm sorry that I made you cry
I can't believe that I'm just an ordinary guy

I can't believe I made you cry
I can't believe that made you cry
I can't believe this makes you cry

I see you
I need you
I leave you behind
I've learned my lesson

O.K I'm bored now.




10. STAGNANT

Summer's here, the sunlight greets the day
The winters gone, there's no more rain today...
And if I could, I'm sure that I would take your breath away
So ain't it funny how, after trying to find my way home
I'm in the middle now and I won't get lost again

Cause in the winter time, when everything is grey
And in the summer time, into the month of May
I get a feeling that it's all so temporary
And that's the feeling that can take my blues away

Tired of the way that I'm feeling everyday
And I feel it in my head...woo-hoo-hoo...
Tired of the way that I'm feeling everyday
And I feel it in my head now, my head now

It's beautiful, the way it's meant to be...
Beautiful, but it 'don't do shit' for me...
So peel away a little skin and choke upon the bone
And ain't it funny how, after trying to find my way home,
I'm in the middle now, and I won't get lost again.

But you don't know, how or when it's gonna go

You don't know.
