Track Name: Lazy Bones
It's time to wake up lazy bones
Come on and leave your world of monochrome
It's time to keep up with the Jones'

You're warm and fetal, safe at home
Why work your fingers to the bone
Track Name: Slab City
Rain bringing us no relief
A change gonna come in our time of need

Take me there
To a land
With caravans
covered in sand

Round goes the sound of the spinning wheels
I'm going out to Slab City where the air is free
No clouds or crowds or opportunity
I'm going out to Slab City that's the life for me

Rays baking my memories
Days from here to eternity

Write a note
Send my regards
In no-man's land
The future is ours

Round goes the sound of the spinning wheels
I'm going out to Slab City where the air is free
No clouds or crowds or opportunity
I'm going out to Slab City that's the life for me

Round goes the sound of the spinning wheels
I'm going out to Slab City where the air is free
No clouds or crowds or opportunity
In the land that time forgot, Slab City
Track Name: The Day The Radio Died
Driving Friday night
Grandma saw it first
first we lost the headlights
Then we lost reverse
It came out of the sky
Clouds began to burst
When we lost the music
Things had gone from bad to worse

nah nah nah nah
It came from the sky
The day the radio died

What did they believe in
What'd they hope to find
Where were they going
How many empty miles behind
They just kept going
Since the day they came
We thought we'd change forever
But our lives remained the same

nah nah nah nah
It came from the sky
The day the radio died
Track Name: A Brighter Day
Who's that knocking on the front door
Got us creeping on the floor
Like the time before

All the bills and commotions
Driving us insane
But time's in motion
So we'll just wait...

For a brighter day
To chase the clouds away
Keeps us going round and around and around

We say
nah nah nah

You're a stranger in your own head
Can't remember what was said
You used to be well read

All the pills and the potions
Get us through the day
Like little notions
For those who pray

For a brighter day
To take the pain away
Keeps us going round and around and around

We say
nah nah nah

Are we divine or resigned
On a beautiful decline
If you see the light
It's not a sign

It's just a brighter day
Keeps us going round and around and around

We say
nah nah nah
Track Name: Home Wrecker
My my ha hallelujah
Good god Homewrecker be mine
Mi-mine ha hallelujah
Won't you take me Homewrecker

Got one crutch, one cigarette
two fuzzy slippers and a wife
This is what we get for our labors
Kids are crying at our feet
Another punch-up in the street
It's a matinee for the neighbors

But here she comes to save the day

My my ha hallelujah
Good god Homewrecker be mine
Mi-mine ha hallelujah
Won't you take me Homewrecker

They say that beggars can't be choosers
Is that for sinners or for losers
'Cause this girl's got roller derby knees
So many fools go to school
And they just can't find the answer
But American Gothic in a tube top's got it

My my ha hallelujah
Good god Homewrecker be mine
Mi-mine ha hallelujah
Won't you take me Homewrecker

Take me far from circumstances
Track Name: Stampede
My my my what a beautiful dream
Let's head out west and take all we see

Well we look pretty good, don't have much to say
On the open road it's better that way

My my my what a beautiful dream

All the miles keep on speeding
Leave it all behind
Everybody's off the deep end
Well maybe it's about time

By by and by this is the way
A time tested cure that drives the blues away

It's manifest, It's destiny
Just another moving target in the land of the free

By by and by this is the way

All the miles keep on speeding
Leave it all behind
Everybody's off the deep end
Well maybe it's about time

Well come tomorrow
There 'll be no more sorrow
Where the people graze and the animals pray
for….
Track Name: In The Sun
Hello my dear friend
We won't meet again
But sometimes in my mind I can find…
you haven't changed
It seems strange
I still see you when you shine

In the Sun
With everyone
In the sun
Memories slowly fade away

Hello my dear friend
Do you remember when
We thought we had it made…
In the shade I
Write a song
That says so long
And I'll see you when you shine

In the sun
With everyone
In the sun
Memories slowly fade away

We'll see
You in the sun
We'll see you
Track Name: We've Arrived
I've got a feeling maybe I was born with two left feet and no rights
So disengage the brain and hit the passing lane, put reality out of sight

We just drive
No where to go
I think that we've arrived
She looked at me and said shut up and drive

You say you want a revolution maybe dreams really do come true
We're spinning round and round and round round nothing we'd rather do

except…
Drive
No where to go
I think that we've arrived
She looked at me and said shut up and drive

In the land of the free and the brave
Everything is alright
'thing is alright
One foot on the gas and one on the brake
Well I think it's my right
Think it's my right

We just drive
No where to go
I think that we've arrived
She looked at me and said shut up and drive
Track Name: Too Big To Fail
Liars, thieves and other lovers
You drive a bargain
Desires, needs and a mother's cover
Is all we've ever gotten
All the good times trickle down and out
We've been forgotten now

Get ready
Hold steady
Stand up now
We're too big to fail

In the morning
In the evening
Get up up now
We're too big to fail

(anything you have to do
to make your little dreams come true)

Oh good fortune be our guiding star
We've lost our way
We were riding but now we'll drive
So start the getaway car

Get ready
Hold steady
Stand up now
We're too big to fail

In the morning
In the evening
Get up up now
We're too big to fail

Set us free
With do re mi
Stand up now
We're too big to fail
Track Name: Living The Dream
Hey, I've got it good
It's understood
This is the good life
Without a doubt
My ship's come in
The tide's gone out

I'm living the dream
Living and dreaming
All that I see

It's been quite a ride
My way's been paved
With miles of smiles
Every day

I'm living the dream
Living and dreaming
All that I see
Track Name: Sandy Meadows
Back home where the days
and the folks all look the same
There's a girl
There's a girl

She was cornfed and vain
A pagan goddess of the plains
She had the world
She had the world

Life was good on Sandy Meadows
Take me back there when the wind blows
Plant a dream on sandy meadows
And lay your head down where the weeds grow

She'd always love 'em and leave 'em
and love 'em again
In a whirl
In a whirl

But we were free enough to laugh and to dance and to cry
At the same time

At the same time
Life was good on Sandy Meadows
Take me back there when the wind blows
Plant a dream on sandy meadows
And lay your head down where the weeds grow

Life was good on Sandy Meadows
Take me back there when the wind blows
Plant a dream on sandy meadows
And lay your head down where the weeds grow
Life was good on sandy meadows
Take me back there
Sandy Meadows in my mind
Track Name: Far Away From Here
One strange day I realized
I'm Far away from here
Far away from now
Safely away from all that I feel
So far away from here
Far away from now

Sail above atmosphere a million miles away from all who care
People places, things and time and everything between lost in the glare
Somewhere in a memory

All that I see is not very clear
Far away from here
Far away from now
Got a new view but nothing has changed
Far away from here
Far away from now

Sail above atmosphere a million miles away from all who care
People places, things and time and everything between lost in the glare
Somewhere in a memory

One strange day I might head back home
It's far away from here
Far away from now
