Track Name: Dying Easy
You should have listened to your mother
She told you that life can be hard
and now you see not livings easy
To live is dying and you are

Easy
Easy

You always thought it would be heaven
Goodluck and high prosperity
And now you’ve lost all that you live for
Goodbye sweet life of luxury

Easy
Dying
Easy
Dying
Easy
Dying
Easy

You never listened to your ma
You should have known life would be cruel
Your mind is stuck in repetition
It doesn’t matter what you do

Track Name: Sister Satan
You act so sad but I see no tears
It’s never certain that you’ll be here tomorrow

I don’t want to leave but you know I’ve gotta
I can’t love you like the way I wanta
And I never knew her until I kissed her
But now I'm sure she’s the devil’s sister

Oh, Oh, Oh,
Oh, Oh, Oh,

I tried to please her I couldn’t please her
(he tried to please her but he can’t please her)

I tried to leave her but I can’t leave her
(he tried to leave her he couldn’t leave her)

You act so sad but I see no tears
It’s never certain that you’ll be here tomorrow

I don’t want to leave but you know I’ve gotta
I can’t love you like the way I wanta
And I never knew her until I kissed her
But now I'm sure she’s the devil’s sister

Oh, Oh, Oh,
Oh, Oh, Oh,
Oh, Oh, Oh,

Track Name: X-Ray Glasses
I found an old magazine
I never had seen
I picked it up and looked at all the ads
And in one little square
I could see they had a pair
Of x-ray glasses

So I tore out the page
And I chunked up my change
To see if I might have enough to buy
For just a little green
I could see through anything
With my x-ray glasses

I would roll through town
While the sun beats down
And the pretty girls enjoy their summer day

I like what I see
When I’m wearing these
They keep my old mind (my mind) so satisfied
So if you need a friend
We can meet behind the lens
Of my x-ray glasses

I would roll through town
While the sun beats down
And the pretty girls enjoy their summer day

Ooh, I like what I see
When I’m wearing these
They keep my old mind (my mind) so satisfied
So if you need a friend
We can meet behind the lens
Of my x-ray glasses
Of my x-ray glasses
Of my x-ray glasses

Track Name: I'll Get You High (A Good Mind & Some Soul)
She lives pretty close but I can’t wait
She knows how it goes if you’re not too late in time
I’ll get you high

If it’s some sort of bribe for a rendezvous
I'm taking no jibe it’s just something I’d do for you
I’ll get you high

Oh I love this lazy feeling
Yes I love your painted ceiling
Now that I have kaleidoscope eyes

She said that she’s hip but it’s quieter now
I don’t wanna quit so if you’re still around and down
I’ll get you high
I’ll get you high
I’ll get you high

The way that you kiss really gives me a fix
And the way that you love is so happy and young and free

And the way that you move when you sway to a tune
Like the way that you lay at the end of a day gone good

But I’ve got a good mind & some soul
But I'm getting tired cause I'm growing old and dying

The way that you walk when you want me to go
And the way that you talk when I turn on the radio

And the way that you are so unnaturally charmed
Like the way that you’re here when I'm but it seems so far

But I’ve got a good mind & some soul
But I'm getting tired cause I'm growing old and dying

Oh I love this crazy feeling
Yes I love this crazy feeling now

Track Name: De Lane Lea
I think I'm finally ready to go
Once I put my shoes on
I’ll head down to De Lane Lea
Once I strap these boots on

It’s alright
Don’t be nervous
It’s alright
De Lane Lea

I heard about this place before
And all of those that’s been there
I set out for De Lane Lea
But never thought I’d get there

It’s alright
Don’t be nervous
It’s alright
De Lane Lea

Now I'm here I don’t know what to say
Ran out of songs to play and
I break down at De Lane Lea
I wish I never came here

It’s alright
Don’t be nervous
It’s alright
De Lane Lea

Track Name: Thank You (Rum Dum Dum)
Rum dum dum
Rum dum dum
If you need somebody to love
Look into my eyes
They’re the ones that you’re dreaming of
Lying awake at night

Rum dum dum
Rum dum dum
If you want somebody like me (me)
I’ll make you mine
Tell me when and we’ll meet again
I’ll never say goodbye

Don’t do it
No no
Don’t do it
Take your time

Rum dum dum
Rum dum dum
Rum dum dum
Rum dum dum

Take your time (thank you)
Take your time
Take your time (thank you)
Take your time (thank you)
Take your time (thank you)

Track Name: Behind The Times
I sat beside here
Whenever I could find her
But she just turns to me and cries

I'm not much like her
But trying to be kinder
But she just hides and I don’t know why
Can’t she see behind the times?

She was the only one around
She was the only one around

I’d like to dine her
And maybe to unwind her
But she can’t seem to dry her eyes
Can’t she see behind the times?

Track Name: She Tells Me Everything
I
Do try
Do I
Seem blue?

She
Tells me
Say please

She tells me everything
She tells me everything

I
Don’t mind
The kind
Like you

She’s
With me
She’s free
To choose

She tells me everything
She tells me everything
She tells me everything
She tells me everything

I
Think I
No I
Know you

She
Tells me
Say please
And I do

She tells me everything
She tells me everything
She tells me everything
She tells me everything

Track Name: Sunshine On Chrome
I was far
From my home
When I found
I was born
With my pockets sewn
So full of sand

I went down
To the road
On my new
Search for gold
With my fingers crossed
Where did I go?

Take me home
Take me home
Take me home
Take me

I was lost
In a storm
Paradise
She kept me warm
Through the night
Under the sky

I cut my seam
My button broke
I'm out of luck
And out of smoke
And I wake up to
Sunshine on chrome

Take me home
Take me home
Take me home
Take me

Track Name: Love Is Happening Again
You said you weren’t no ball and chain
But love is happening again
No reason to get excited
No reason anyone should cry

You should have left me yesterday
But love is happening this way
No reason anyone should fight it
No reason anyone should try

I should have sent you far away
But love is happening again
No reason anyone should fight it
No reason anyone should try
No reason to get excited
No reason anyone should cry

Track Name: I'll Be Happy
I’ll be happy
I’ll be happy

When the sun is shining down
On the ground
Only then

I’ll be happy
I’ll be happy
If the earth keeps turning round
And around
Maybe then

I'm walking in the rain
Feeling so insane
Yet again

And the sky is turning blue
Over you
Ooh that’s when

I really can’t explain
It’s rocking in my brain
Everyday

I’ll be happy
I’ll be happy
I’ll be happy

Track Name: Venus In Tune
Flowers and the trees
And the birds and the bees
And the sun up above

Stars and the moon
And the dish with the spoon
Ran away from it all

But every once in awhile
That girl turns the world with her smile

Picture yourself
On a hard-rocking moon
With Venus herself
Aligned and in tune

Forever it seems it seems

But just before the dawn
She sings the world her song

High up in the sky
Is where she’ll fly
High above the sea
Is where she’ll be

Venus in tune
Sing us a tune
Venus in tune
Sing us a tune
