Track Name: Mama Llama
Mama said Daddy
Don’t you leave me alone
We can act funny
And nobody will know

Mama Llama
Mama Llama
Mama Llama

Mama said Daddy
Would you do me no wrong?
I lied and said maybe
Because I couldn't stay long

Mama Llama
Mama Llama
Mama Llama

Mama said Daddy
Don’t you need me no more?
I try to calm baby
As I walk out the door

Mama Llama
Mama Llama

Track Name: The Tiny Pill I Take
The tiny pill I take
Is round
It puts me down

It makes me what I ain’t
Complaints
Without a frown

I may forget a day
Or two
When I’m with you

But really I can’t say
I say
I say

Pick me up
Pick me up

And anytime I’m sad
It’s gone
And all along

I want to feel alright
And do
But not for long

And anytime I think
I change
And shrink away

But really I can’t say
I say
I say

Pick me up
Pick me up
Pick me up
Pick me up

I’m so low
I’m so low
I’m so low
I’m so low
I’m so low
I’m so low
I’m so low

To be is up to me
You see
I want to leave

And all I have to do
Is try
But actually

I like to change my mind
And do
It all the time

But really I can’t say
I say
I say
I say
I say
Track Name: Counter-Clockwise Man
Left his home
At the age of seven
He never made it
Through the first day of school

Left his home
At the age of seven
He never made it
Through the first day of school

Could have been
A wise clock-counting man
But now he's a
Counter-clockwise man

He’s a boy
With a cerebellum
He’s the kid with
The cool chemicals

Another boy
With a cerebellum
Just a kid with
Some cool chemicals

Now he's rocking backwards
With the band

Cause he's a
Counter-clockwise man

Hits the radio to eleven
When he's listening
To top rock & roll

Hits the radio to eleven
He’s always listening
To top rock & roll

Keeping time
When no one
Understands

Cause he's a
Counter-clockwise man

Should have been a
Wise clock-counting man

But now he's a
Counter-clockwise man
Track Name: Hatred Of The Color Orange
She hates the color orange
And always has
And always has

She eats her country porridge
From the cardboard bag
From the cardboard bag

I never, never knew
Someone could have so much
Hatred of the color orange
Hatred of the color orange

She waits inside at home
Til the sun come down
Til the sun come down

She don’t mind her daytime cold
Or the big black clouds
Or the big black clouds

I never understood
Somebody really could have a
Hatred of the color orange
Hatred of the color orange

I never understood
How anybody could have a
Hatred of the color orange
Hatred of the color orange
Hatred of the color orange
Track Name: Don't Let The Sun Set On You Here
And I want you
And I need you
And I’d take you
To the day

If I liked you
I could try to
Ask the sky who
Took the rays

Don’t let the sun set on you here

And I'm tired
Sipping cider
While the fire
Keeps me warm

What to cry for
What to die for
When that knock
Is on your door

Don’t let the sun set on you here
Don’t’ let the sun set on you here

If they've come to
Carry bad news
Singing sad tunes
From the state

I would save you
From the blame you've
Always wanted
To escape

Don’t let the sun set on you here
Don’t let the sun set on you here
Don’t let the sun set on you here
Don’t let the sun set on you here
Track Name: Working Like A Charm
She's been working hard
Hanging off my arm
She’s been working
Working like a charm

She's been looking good
Every chance she could
She’s been working
Working like she should

She's been saying things
I don't know what she means
She's been working
Working like a dream
Track Name: Can You Dig Your Man?
I can dig your smile
You can dig it too
What sin have I
If I should touch you?

Can you dig your man?
Can you dig your man?
Baby dig your man

I can dig your mind
Can you dig mine too?
Don’t know no kind of
Girl so kind who
Can stay true

Can you dig your man?
Can you dig your man?
Baby dig your man

Can you dig your man?
Can you dig your man?
Can you really keep one love
And love one?

Can you dig your man?
Can you dig your man?
Baby dig your man

Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?
Can you dig it?
Track Name: You're Going To Fall In Love
You're going to
Going to fall
Yeah, you’re going to
Going to fall
In love it's true

You
You’ll like it when you do
Any other time
Could never quite make due
Yeah

And you won't know who
Won’t know who they are
No you won't know who
Don’t know where
How far

Or when
You’ll find that only friend
But you're going to
You’ll fall in love with them

And it's true
Yes it's true

You
Have waited for so long
But it came to you
A love that can't go wrong

And it's true
Yeah it's true
Track Name: The Devil I Know
If you ever change your mind
I'll be around when the sun don't shine
The devil I know is waiting below
If you ever change your mind

If you ever change your tune
I'll let you down into that same old groove
The devil it's true, he's waiting for you
If you ever change your mind

He'll try to break you down
He'll try to take you down
God knows he's got a lot of time

But if you ever change your mind
I'll be around where the sun don't shine
The devil I know is waiting below
If you ever change your mind
Track Name: Man With No Name
Everyday I’m watching my neck
The sun come down right across my back
It ain’t no fun if you don’t got a gun
Sun come low and it’s making me squint

And everyday I’m watching my step
I smoke that stuff out the side a my lip
It ain’t no fun if you don’t got a gun
(I don’t got a gun but I’m not the only one)
I shoot my words out the top a my hip

Everyday I roam
And everywhere I go
It’s where I lay my head
That’s what I call home

And everyday I loosen my grip
I pour my flask but I finish it quick
It ain’t no fun if you don’t got a gun
(I don’t got a gun but I’m not the only one)
The good's all gone and it’s making me sick

Everyday I roam
And everywhere I go
It’s where I lay my head
That’s what I call home

Everyday I loosen my grip
Everyday I’m watching my step
Everyday I’m watching my neck
Everyday I’m watching my neck
Track Name: It's Gonna Be Bad
Well you ain't scared a nothing
And I ain't scared of you
You watch out for what’s coming
I’m coming after you

And it’s gonna be bad
It’s gonna be bad
It’s gonna be bad
Its got to be true

Well sometimes you get lucky
But some folks never do
Every time I try to reason
But who could want the truth

If it’s gonna be sad
It’s gonna be sad
It’s gonna be sad
Its got to be true

Well you know what I’m needing
Can only come from you
I’ve tried but I’ve been beaten
And I don’t see no use

If its it’s gonna be bad
It’s gonna be bad
It’s gonna be bad
Its got to be true

And it’s gonna be sad
It’s gonna be sad
It’s gonna be sad
Its got to be true
Track Name: So Help Me
Today, I saw something
That made me cry
Today, I saw something really die

Today, don't ask me why
Today, I saw something really die

And my mind feels slow and heavy

Today, I saw someone
Who made me cry
Today, I saw someone really die

Today, don't ask me why
Today, maybe someone made me cry

And my mind feels slow and heavy
And my thoughts weigh down so help me
Track Name: Soon It'll Be Alright
You’re under the weather
But soon you'll feel better
Soon it'll be alright
Soon it'll be alright
Soon it'll be alright

You’re nearing the end
My wonderful friend
But soon it'll be alright
Soon it'll be alright

My wonderful friend
Soon it will end
Soon it will end
The sooner the better

My wonderful friend
Soon it will end
Soon it will end
The sooner the better
