Track Name: Cackle
Spark bubbles flying on a cloudy day
Don't know which way is the wind
Signs and sighs of a long lost time
Maps on a wrinkled skin

Chasing dragonflies in your soiled shorts
Candy and cavities in your cackle
World was a studio built with your thoughts
Scaffolding time couldn't tackle

Chasing dolls in your spring-clean shirt
Wit and ash in your lungs
World was a studio built with your toys
Scaffolding time left unsung

Daffodils gave way to diamonds
Bicycles went out of fashion
Butterflies shed
Their wings and cried
Your studio crumbled and
died...
Track Name: Coffee before Poo Poo
Breaking mirrors up to to dawn
Baby let me take you higher
All you see around is you-ou-ou
Don't you ever get tired

You say it's just a habit
You ain't trying too hard to break it
In fact I think you quite enjoy it
Why don't you take your shit and beat it beat it baby

Pissing mixing hourglass fixing
Breeding feeding leading losing
Pissing mixing hourglass fixing
Breeding feeding leading losing
Watching close under my nose
Playing host to the braindead ghost
Watching close under my nose
Playing host to the braindead ghost
Watching close under my nose
Playing host to the braindead ghost
Watching close under my nose
Playing host to the braindead ghost

Put it away
Put it away yeah
Put it away now
Put it away hey hey hey
Put it away put it away
I say
Put it away put it away
Put it away put it away
I say
Put it away
Hey hey hey hey hey
Track Name: Butter Fingers
I don't want to die in my baby's arms
I don't want to die at all
So I fear for my time
I want to take my trip before the fall

And the lady by the window in Amsterdam
Says "Come in if you wanna have a good time"
But I'm not sure
I want to go
but i'm too slow to catch the
sunset of my flow

And the trees are calling
"Come out and play"
But I'm too cold, man.
And the moon keeps laughing at my fate
As i keep on running from my running

And the pretty boys with the blue eyes
they say "Babe you wanna score?"
But I'm not sure
I wanna go
But I'm too slow to catch
the sunset of my flow

Hey hey hey
hey hey hey
You keep slipping from my fingers

With sweetness on her fingertips
she brushes back her hair
Am I in love with a woman
or am I her, I just don't care

And the lady by the window
She rubs her Silver thighs
and as I press my head against the glas
I see her smile

And the trees are calling...(repeat)

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
You keep slipping through my fingers.
Track Name: Gin and Lime
Raining since morning it's been raining all night
Ain't seen no sunshine ain't seen no clear light
Oh no
Called up my wife she said she's far away gone
Called up my kid she said she ain't coming home

Sitting by my fireplace/foulplay
Sipping on my gin and lime
Sitting by my fireplace/foulplay
I am sipping on my gin and lime

Met a pretty lady in a country bar
Wore blue jeans and she smoked a cigar
Oh yeah/I said wow
I said oh lady won't you come home with me
Got a lot of things you ain't never seen
She said no

Sitting by my fireplace/foulplay
Sipping on my gin and lime
Sitting by my fireplace/foulplay
I am sipping on my gin and lime

Cleaned up my kitchen to make a new start
Knock on the door I see my sweetheart
Oh yeah
Seeing her face I couldn't help but smile
I said Oh Baby Now it's been a while
Oh yeah

Sitting by my fireplace/foulplay
Sipping on my gin and lime
Sitting with my baby
I am sipping on my gin and lime
Waiting for my kid I said
I'm sipping on my gin and lime
Sitting by my fireplace/foulplay
I said I am sipping on my gin and lime
Track Name: Hello
I got a handful of lovers
a pitcher full of blues
and madmen dance
beneath neon hues

With their thongs and shakers
whores heartbreakers
in my circus of lust
amuse if you must

Won't you come for a day
Indulge in your games
But I'm bored of you boy
Find me another toy

You spit in my face
Put your hurt on display
Let's stop pretending
And that's when i
Sing.

Hello.
You look a different man
Is that
Wrinkles I see on your face?
I see.
You've finally come of age.

Too long.
You say you cried in your bath
room for a day
a whole day
hey hey hey.

You were crazy
Like a fool
but oh so cruel
was i
to you.

Then you denied
And everything turned out fine
Everything turned out fine...

And then
came a little road
that was
happy n dark n sad.

And I
walked alone
Hoping my dreams don't
haunt me mad.

And then
came a little stop.

It said
Stop here right
Now.
Track Name: Stone
I went looking for some inspiration
I found a charcoal picture of you
I got lost in the labyrinth that we made
Now you're out
and I'm still searching for my cue

I gave you a sweater when you were in tears
You swore you'd never forget the
temperature that night

I gave you a flower
and waited for sunshine
but it grew wings
and flew out of my mind

These are the ways that I have yearned and grown
These are the ways that I have come to know
Hey you lover
have you turned to stone
or have you stopped looking for
answers when i ask
do you know

what turns me on
Track Name: Tea
We used to meet for coffee
Smoking our dreams
Complaining about the traffic
and the dust in the wind

Then you told me something
I held you in my arms
Till we turned cold
I thought it was love
I thought it was love
I thought it was love love love

Then you left the country
Never to meet again
thought it would be different
till you called one day

you said baby baby
if you were here with me
we would meet for coffee and
the air's pretty clean
this side which side
how come you're still
talking to me
are you thinking
of the days of
riding the cream
Oh baby
I've been so so
far away from you

I don't drink coffee anymore
would you care for some...

Now you have a beard and
put on a little weight
it's been a few years
but I've got to say
Looking pretty good now
better than before
I wish that we could make it
but I've got to go that side
which side
how come you're still
talking to me
are you thinking
of the days of
riding the cream
Oh baby
I've been so so
far away from you

I don't drink coffee anymore
I said I don't drink coffee anymore
would you care for some...


would you care for some...
