San Diego dance floor I met a San Diego dance whore Deliver me to some east coast queen I’m full of California and bad dreams Singing……. Bloody Mary it’s twenty past three I got this horrible feeling coming over me Gotta get me back on an airplane I got unwanted voices running through my brain They were Singing….. Flea Cars and public schools Strip malls and swimming pools Down below out my airplane window Dave did my charts, he dodged the draft He’s been to all the places, I was just at Down below out my airplane window We were singing…..

Mind Malaise 04:09
Old tongues and heavy lungs I see what it is you’ve done You try and make a way with me You try and make a way with me Old shoes and heavy news They’ll drop bombs on Santa Cruz They don’t care about you and me They don’t care about us They don’t care about you and me They don’t care about us They don’t care about us Empty vase and a short maze With you I sleep away my days I don’t know about me this week I don’t know about her I don’t know about me this week I don’t know Six days in the mind malaise Three more weeks is all she stays She’s got things to do now, she’s got things for her She’s got things to do now, she’s go things for her She’s got things for her It’d be nice if they didn’t know about me and you It’s be nice if they didn’t know about me and you It’s a good time, don’t you think it’s a good time To keep your mouth sewn closed Whites snakes with the pearl rakes From these things you won’t escapes They’re gonna have their ways with us, they’re gonna have their ways with you They’re gonna have their ways with us, they’re gonna have their ways with you It’d be nice if they didn’t know about me and you It’s be nice if they didn’t know about me and you It’s a good time, don’t you think it’s a good time To keep your mouth sewn closed

I'm so cold... I'm more cold than you Things aren't gonna last Things aren't gonna last... All is vanity All is vanity... I'm so scared... I'm more scared then you Things aren't gonna last Things aren't gonna last... Well I love my family I love my family... I love my family...

Guarantees are not for certain I don’t care how hard you’ve been working You ain’t got nothing now What you been thinking anyhow Fools got guarantees And you got nothing What you got today could easily be gone tomorrow Everything is lent, everything you’ve got is borrowed Nothing lasts forever The changes in the weather Bring new things but we Still got nothing Are we happy with nothing Drawing pictures on the water Gone before you discover The things in this world That you’ll miss when they’re gone Guarantees are not for certain I don’t care how hard you’ve been working The presents almost done The future in a moment comes What we got now is all And we got nothing Drawing pictures on the water Gone before you discover The things in this world That you’ll miss when they’re gone When they’re gone When they’re gone When they’re gone When they’re gone When they’re gone

lyrics by Chris Bathgate The last parade on Ann Street babe Was when the frost leaves sounded like glass When we burned down the whole damn block With a wink and just one match Well the site I reside in now It's new grove but same old ghosts But I owe to the one before 'Cause it's the one that stained my voice But the last one Yeah the last one Was to burn us out

Dean Helm 01:34
Well I’ve got too much stuff I don’t need half this much But I’ve scraped and saved and put away The things I thought you’d want today Some you won’t want, some you won’t use Others you’ll love, some you’ll lose And of all these things The one I love the most Is a hardy toast from a gracious host So drink boys Cause tomorrows not here And the last thing we need is our heads too clear So drink boys Cause tomorrows not here And the last thing we need is our heads too clear

I’ve got a special place set aside for me when I die I’ve got a special place set aside for me when I die Cannonball, cannonball, cannonball Well run me through Cannonball, cannonball, cannonball I love you to death I love the little things, simple is as simple’s been I love the little things, simple is as simple’s been Cannonball, cannonball, cannonball Well run me through Cannonball, cannonball, cannonball I love you to death I’ve got a little room down in hell I’ve got a little room down in hell Cannonball, cannonball, cannonball Well run me through Cannonball, cannonball, cannonball I love you to death

Lift the shadow from this heart Strike the kindling, save the spark I see light where it’s dark, dark, dark Lift the shadow from this heart All your charcoal could be cold If you saved the lightning for your soul Do you feel warm where it’s cold, cold, cold Did you save the lightning for your soul Weakness and commodity I’m no witness I can’t see, see, see This darkness won’t let me be Turn these dry lands into shore You can’t squeeze an ocean through a door But it’s so dry, won’t you pour, pour, pour You can’t get your vision from a store Weakness and commodity I’m no witness I can’t see, see, see Scare the darkness out of me Lift the shadow from this heart Lift the shadow from this heart

Sweet Life is so sweet, so sad The ones you love the most go by so fast Traffic to the sea, to the sea where you bumped into me Traffic to the sea, to the sea where you bumped into me Please don't let me down.... Down.... All the water we took from that sea The sea claims into obscurity And we don't know a thing Yeah we'll pretend we know everything I don't know a thing I'll pretend I know everything I know I wont let you down... Down... Sweet Life is so sweet, so sad The ones you love the most, go by so fast Traffic to the sea, to the sea where you bumped into me Traffic to the sea, to the sea where you bumped into me I know you won't let me down... Down..
