Track Name: South Inglewood
Golden in me
Please forgive me
Going to a place to call home

old and stingy
probably just forget me
going to a place to find home

oh lordy
whiskey on rye in the morning
(drifting all day in the morning)
Track Name: Beartooth Mountains
You drove to the mountains
In your antique car
Whoda' thought that you could get that far?
whoda' thought that you would actually do it?
You called my name
but there was no response
I'll be headed there
straight towards the beartooth mountains
yep yep uh huh yes yes
Track Name: Oh Brother
Oh brother, eye to eye
Oh sister, eye to eye
Oh Anna, eye to eye

All is fair
there are no boundaries
naked fear is dripping down my face

Oh brother, told not told
Oh sister, we ran in our rooms
Track Name: California Caper
Skipping rocks at the California Caper
nothing maybe everything could be better

Stay clear from the sly ghetto rhinos
by the heroes of the tigers
nothing maybe everything could be the same
when Oscar tries to put himself in flames

Water fountain water, I know
splish splash splish splash'n on your face
I will grow five times our size
just to beat those sting rays
Track Name: Dungeon Blues
Got'n up a sad day
I've been all around
falling in chloral stalls
slow balls in the round
on the ground
Track Name: My Dog Andy
my dog andy
if you only knew
he can shut the door
and roll over on the floor
are you watching?
if you only knew
he'd do anything you ask
almost anything you ask

Andy no
I thought I taught you well
inside you're just flailing around
you're thinking in the wrong time frame

you really aught to know
you're sneaking down a longer path
just look at how you've grown
you're jumping in the horses bath

Andy no
I caught you walking out
you don't need those friends anymore
yeah, you do!

I know it's true
we love everything you do
almost everything you do
I know it's true
he can shut the door
Track Name: Will C. Lovell
Will C Lovell deep sea diver
lets wake in the morning and gather the choral
Christoper Morgan the astronaut
Lets fly up to see the waking of the moon
Zachary Hatcher, you're just a bastard!
trying to find a lighter
basic basic basic
making a fool. why the lighter?
walking around this little town

come on everybody! oh aw oh!
elephants running from my head to the circus
Track Name: Snakes
Snakes are cool, but I'm a lizard
Don't tell my snakes that I'm a lizard
I'm a lizard oh,
I told you

I'm looking for a red rabbit

what's your problem?
it's not your fault
it's not your big and heavy fault

I'm thinking of an odd number

ah these snakes are these snake's sons
Track Name: Spaceman
How a spaceman learns to walk
