LYRICS:

GET HIGH
We're gonna take a vow, we're gonna leave this place together
Aching to find where the tulips cry on and on and on again
I still get high
We're gonna take a vow, we're gonna leave this place forever
Aching to find where the tulips cry on and on and on again
I still get high.

A TOWN
Here is a town
For you to walk your walls in
For you to plead disinterest
Here is that town
For you to be forgotten
For you to be passed over
Maybe I need to to know
Tonight

LOVE YOU ALL
Get pissed off when you say there's a message
I drift down take a look at the wreckage
Hard to say what the choice is about
Fall to need cause I'm sure of the doubt
See the world from in back of the scars
It's the power just to leave a thousand things as they are
I say it's all right cause I love you all

Bad luck for the price of a drink
I give up on something I need
Sad to say how the two are alike
Tired as hell and my emotion is dry
I say it's all right cause I love you all

COME TOMORROW
I close my eyes to let you die
(Keep up)
I want to fail want to make you well
I want to tear all the stupid things you know
I see what you were seeing
And I know it’s not too good
You’ll be there too

I bet it’s here but I really need to know
I wait a while cuz there’s nowhere else to go
I see what you were seeing
And I know it’s not so good
You’ll be there too

Come tomorrow
We’ll be slipping the veil

STOP
sweet something town..... that's where it's going to
sweet nothing town.....that's where it stays
here is diamonds.....and here is talking
can I wait until they all stop?

well it's summer time.....that's when the jokes run dry
and in this nothing time.....that's where they'll stay
here is talking.....and I see people
on they're way til they.....stop
Don’t cry to me because it ends, HEY!

DAN, A SON OF GOD
When he was here
He brought light to the dark lives
And he brought peace
Of the fabled kind
When it was here
It was harnessed and rode like a dog
In the name of a just and most commonly spoken disease
Yes, that's dan
And he stands like a sidewalk
And he moves with a surely chosen uncertain step
He says there's one dream I've had
A dream without violence
And there's one dream I've had
That leads me to heat
Well there are times when a life is uncertain
But when you're born just to die
And your death is so pleasantly grand, man
The book is so cool
I've read it three times
A movie is due
And I know that you'll cry
About dan
Danny boy

THINK ABOUT THOSE DAYS
I see you so I can't find myself
I wait until you turn the black into grey
I see your love fell into the grease
There's something talking to me I'm pleased
Lucky you.....lucky me
Here come those four star years again
I'm only kidding myself
Sit yourself down
And the sticky side is for me
Well I know you still think about those times
Yes I know you still think about those days
I'm only cheating myself

READY?
The sureness of violence, I crave the excitement
I move to the edge now, with grace I can let it fly
I’m careless and blameless, I don’t feel like a bad child
A moment of violence, this moment requires it
Hold fast, white sail, we give, why not?
On and older, we stand on the shoulder
I would not ever believe
But it’s true, oh yes it’s true
I’ll sleep like a soldier, my mind even colder
Get mixed up in silence, and fade through the changes
No use for this boxed set, I forget, I forget, I forget
Stay punk, why doubt, we give, right on
Old and soulless we stay always honest
I could not ever believe
But it’s true, oh yes it’s true
Are you ready?

WOODEN HIPPIE NICE
Now wouldn't it be nice
to take the car and drive somewhere
Wouldn't it be swell
to send this useless drama back to hell
Life is a messy little thing you know

Now wouldn't it be nice
to sell the car and fly somewhere
And wouldn't it be fine
to spend your stupid money
all the time
Since I got you....

COMFORT 48
All at once, there was no
pennies to count
Pretty soon, I’ll be too
Desperate to sleep
I was inside of the car
I was afraid of the road
I was inside of the car
I was just meat on the road.
Well i see buttercups
And so it should read
Yes, I see buttercups
Then I came upon a hoedown…

THE SICK HALF OF A CHURCH
....every problem you've got on the streets of this town comes from sick slavery like that, you keep talkin' how you think...
...sick church, the other half, like the sick half of a church. A church has two sides to it: one side is sick.
...from the sick half of that town...people denying freedom.
...they say we're a baptist religion, you're a fucking slave you idiot, they're running you, and you're torturing yourself, you're torturing everybody around you, you're sick you idiot...
...it's a human contrivance, they're guilty! Who's ever in charge, kill 'em!!
...like my father always says, pull out your file kid and I will show you every interruption in my life from your creepy mentality you sick crap!...
