Track Name: Sun On My Back
I was raised in a knee high flood
With the sun on my back
And my feet in the mud
I got saved by the life sinking in
Like the end might begin
If I let it, let it

I've been out in the water and waves
With my head in the clouds
And my feet in the grave
I got by in the tops of the trees
Blown away by the breeze
If I let it, let it
Track Name: Money
There’s a picture in mind I can see it come
I know what you will say and when you’re needing some
You can do what you want ‘cause baby you’re the one
But you can’t touch me now until I get some money
Yeah she wants money

There’s a meadow in my mind I’ve been thinking of
You can find me out there if my luck is struck
We can grow anything and baby then some
But I’m still surrounded until I get my money
Yeah I need money
You got to pay to be free

Well I’d work all day to come home to you at night
You don’t have to say it’s been on your mind
Big city, big, big city you can leave it all behind
The only green I need is a leaf on a tree
And don’t you think that oughta be free?
But no they want money
Yeah they want money
You got to pay to be free
Track Name: Solution
Ain’t no woman gonna save my soul
I’ve been left alone for much too long
I got thirteen devils living in my home
And ain’t one of them gonna see the sun
And I can’t get out, no I can’t get out
I need to find a solution

Ain’t no bossman gonna take control
They say work, work, work ‘til I see some bone
I got one more getdown before I go
And you listen to me because you need to know
That I can’t get out, no I can’t get out
I need to find a solution
Oh maybe need some help
I need to find a solution
Oh baby give me your hand
To get out
Track Name: Outta Touch
I saw you coming down the sidewalk in your cyan high heeled shoes
and when you strutted right on by me girl I almost got the blues
so now I’m drinking and I’m sinking and they say I’m out to lunch
cause girl no matter how you spin it, I’m just so outta touch

I’m outta touch
they say I’m getting outta touch
I think I might be outta touch
they say I’m getting outta touch

I saw you smoking marijuana, it’s the doorway to the earth
because I know before you tried it you were sure to knock it first
so now you’re joking and you’re smoking and you’re choking all the time
I can’t remember why I came here, I guess that’s just a sign

I’m outta touch
they say I’m getting outta touch
I think I might be outta touch
they say I’m getting outta touch

Oh yeah, oh no

I’m outta touch
they say I’m getting outta touch
I think I might be outta touch
they say I’m getting outta touch
Track Name: Modern Lovers
I’ve been working my bones
to the very core
Cause the minute I’ve got money
baby she wants more

Now I’m wasting my time
just trying to keep up
But I think might have finally
had enough

Cause there’s no such thing as modern lovers
My brain’s just stuck between the covers

And I, girl I need your loving
But I’ve gotta tell you something
You know girl, you know I’ve gotta let you go

So now I’m up in the air
sleeping under the trees
But it’s not the kind of feeling
that I thought it’d be

Cause she’s under my skin
and she’s stuck in my head
Yeah I’m walking out
and then I’m crawling back instead

Cause there’s no such thing as modern lovers
My brain’s just stuck between the covers

And I, girl I need your loving
But I’ve gotta tell you something
You know girl, you know I’ve gotta let you go
Track Name: I Feel Like a Brain / Light of Day
I feel the pressure and I
know the rain is coming
I feel the sunshine running
It’s run, run, running away
I do the same damn thing everyday
Yeah I feel like a brain
It’s early morning and I
smell the coffee burning
My wheels are barely turning
and I’m already thinking of you
In my dreams I forget that we’re through
But we’re so damn through

The snow is falling and the
lake is frozen over
I wish you got to know her
Yeah the summer was a real special girl
She was a smile and an ocean of curls
She was warming my world

Hey June, you’re a real high flyer
You told me your deep desires
Then you seemed to just screw me over
and pass me on into the blaze
Now I’m left here to bake in the rays
I was only a phase

Food and love, money and mud, God and the devil and the confession I must
I’m stuck where I am and I’m lost where I was
I’ve got a feeling like miner in a coal mine does
If only I could say, I’ve seen the light of day
Body to bread and water to wine, slipping a sip and surrounded by swine
I’m stuck in a rush with nothing but time
Got a feeling like a coal miner stuck in a mine
If only I could say, I’ve seen the light of day

Baby you must know what I mean
When I say sometimes things get so routine
Man, oh what the hell can I say
Sometimes I just get carried away

Winners and losers and beggars and choosers and Catholics and commies and crystal consumers
Some call them the used and some call them the users
I thought I got through but I only confused her
If only I could say, I’ve seen the light of day
Stronger and stronger and stronger and stronger and stronger and stronger and stronger and stronger
I’m cutting my teeth and my hair’s getting longer
I’m trying so hard to believe I belong here
If only I could say, I’ve seen the light of day
Track Name: Time Sutures
My future is your future soon
You’re a loser but I’m losing too
Time sutures everything is true
So turn around, oh turn around

Your future is blocking my view
I’m a mover I’ll get us through
The just noose is now coming loose
So bring him down, oh bring him down

Save the saviors
They won’t save us
No one said they were switching sides
All the lovers
Run for cover
‘Cause no one said they were switching sides
Track Name: My Babe
My baby don't stand no cheatin', not my babe
Oh yeah she don't stand no cheatin', not my babe
Oh yeah she don't stand no cheatin'
She don't do none of that midnight creepin'
Oh my babe, true little baby, oh my babe

My baby don't stand no foolin', not my babe
Oh yeah she don't stand no foolin', not my babe
Oh yeah she don't stand no foolin'
And when she's hot there ain't no coolin'
Oh my babe, sweet little baby, oh my babe

My babe, well I know she loves me, oh my babe
Oh yeah, she said she loves me, oh my babe
Oh yeah, I know she loves me
She don't do nothing but kiss and hug me
Oh my babe, sweet little baby
Oh my babe, true little baby
Track Name: I'll Be Your Mister
Well all you girls get on your feet
‘Cause I’m the man you wanna meet
And I’m telling you brother there won’t be another
If you don’t treat her right
And I’m telling you sister that I’ll be your mister
If the stars don’t shine tonight
And I’m living out of my dreams
Trying to make things seem
Like they’re alright, and it’s alright

Oh call on me, I disagree
We lost the war so we could make some peace

Well all you guys get off the beat
And grab your girl and shake that thing
‘Cause I’m telling you brother there won’t be another
If you don’t treat her right
And I’m telling you sister he won’t be your mister
If the stars are not aligned
And I’m living out of my dreams
Trying to make things seem
Like they’re alright, and they’re alright

Oh call on me, I disagree
We lost the war so we could make some peace
Track Name: Far West
Dark, I can’t see
Yeah I’m fightin’, fightin’ my way back
High, I’m alone
Gotta get ya, get ya, get me some more
Of your love

Free is a myth
So I stole it, broke it, gave it right back
Bye, I’m stoned
And I’m leavin’, leavin’ right out that door

Death is a gift
So I killed it, named it, left it alone
Light blinding me
So I’m closin’, closin’, open my eyes
So I’ll see

Gotta get out my way
I’m goin’ far west
Track Name: Easy Come, Easy Go
I’ve been getting by
but getting by is rough, yeah I’ve had enough
I’ve had it good and I’ve had it right
happens almost every night
I’ve been flying by
flying by the rough, yeah it’s off the cuff
I’m off the stuff and I’m out of bed
tip of the tongue, top of the head

1,2,3

I’ve been keeping track
waiting for the backbeat, stack em’ neat
stack em’ high, stack em’ low
easy come, easy go
I’ve been running back
running down the backstreets, cashing trees
eating some as I go
gotta reap what you sew

1,2,3
Track Name: Weed Smokin' Blues
Let’s do it, let’s s’do it, let’s put it in a pot and stew it

Well I’m bored as hell and I might as well
Pack another one for just you and me
And when these people leave we can be happy
And what we do is something only time can tell

Oh my my, Ohio high
And I wouldn’t wanna be with someone else
Oh my my, I touch the sky
But I’m feelin’ like I can hardly tell

Well I’m stoned as hell and I might as well
Roll another one for just you and me
And when these people leave we can be happy
And what we do is something only time can tell
