Track Name: Touch The Sky
All your life could ever be
In a dream so honestly
You know it's only plain to see

In the morning when the Moon was low
On the water such a pleasant glow
After morning when the sun got high
We're only human as we try to touch the sky

We live a life of mystery
Built on curiosity
You know it's only plain to see

If you ran away with me
We could sail across the sea
We could find another place to be
We could laugh and never cry
Dream awhile and never die
We could run away and touch the sky

All your life could ever be
In a dream so perfectly
You know it's only plain to see
Jupiter looming in the evening sky
Though I'd look her into the eye
I'd like to stay here but I have to fly
In a moment as I try to touch the sky
Track Name: As Long As You Are Near
Should we wait a million years
It could be days before we hear
We're looking through the rear view mirror
It's clear, It's clear

It could be days so drink your beer
It could be days so disappear
It doesn't matter just as long as you are near
As long as you are here
We are only here so long

Just as long as you are near me
Just as long as you are near

Look around and what do you see
Is there anything you need?
Is there something to believe in?
Is there something we can see?
Now we only have each other
And that's something we can see
just as long as you are near me
just as long as we are here

And you realize what's dear
and the answers just aren't clear
As the world just goes to pieces
And the reasons just don't matter
And you realize what's dear
Just as long as you are near
Just as long as you are near
Just as long as you are near
Track Name: The Stone
Looking out across the galaxy
A billion faces like you and me
Try to watch out for the ones we never see

So they'll never be alone
Have a place to call their own
As they're headed to the stone

Hanging out in the infirmary
A dozen crazies like you and me
Taking orders from the ones they never see
The ones they never see

So they'll never be alone
Have a place to call a home
As they're headed to the stone

I guess we're living in another time
They teach the robots to stand in line
Never smiling cause the sun it never shines
In a place where nothing rhymes

Looking out across the universe
What's the meaning and what's it worth
Another question for the one who made the Earth
The one who made the Earth
Track Name: The Day We Met Bigfoot
Walking home the other night
We heard an aweful sound
We took off running it was big and harry
And our feet never touched the ground

We didn't like it
We couldn't fight it
The thing was ten feet tall

We looked right at it
It's on the planet
He said let's have a ball

The day we met bigfoot in the night
It was alright
The day we met bigfoot in the night
And he was so polite

We drank a couple beers and partied by the fire
And the he stumbled into the night

The day we met bigfoot in the night
It was alright
The day we met bigfoot in the,
Running in the night
Hiding from the light of day
Looking for a friend
And partying with us all night
In the night

The day we met bigfoot in the night
And he was alright
The day we met bigfoot in the night
Hiding from the light
And he was outta sight
Track Name: Distractions
Distractions to the left of you
Distractions to the right
Although you're gonna lose your mind
You carry on in spite of the distractions

The telephone is ringing
The kids are making noise
The sun is splitting atoms
And life is but a simple chain reaction
There it goes again
There it goes again

We're caught up in the crossfire
of a life that's only filled with these infractions
There it goes again
There it goes again
Sometime it makes it hard to think
when life is filled with everyday distractions
We've had all we can take
we only need a break from the distractions

From the distractions
Here it goes again
Here it goes again
The Distractions

Now things are getting crazy
You try to stay alive
You know that it ain't easy
Now they're texting while they drive
It's too late for retraction
There's assholes taking lives
It's a distraction

Distractions from above you
Distractions from below
We've gotta have technology
Those idiots can't solve a simple fraction

Distractions from the inside
Distractions from the out
your only gonna lose the time
you spend because of mutual attractions
Here she goes again
There she goes again
She only has to walk on by
And suddenly becomes the main distraction
There she goes again
There she goes again
There she goes again
There she goes again

You know it makes it hard to think
when life is filled with everyday distractions
Track Name: Things
Driving in a car
Wishing on a star
Flying on a plane
Or laughing in the rain

Sleeping in till noon
Walking on the Moon
Lying in the grass
watching people as they pass

A rocket into space
A smile on a face
A dog without a leash
Sleeping on the beach

Smoking big cigars
rovers up on mars
living on a farm
with a girl under each arm

A brand new pair of shoes
A bottle filled with booze
A bug inside a jar
Playing a guitar

A turtle on it's back
And steppin on a crack
Swimming in a pond
Finding creatures from beyond

Pizza by the slice
People who are nice
Fishing on a lake
Eating chocolate cake
Track Name: Vapors
Look around at everyone
Don't you look into the sun
She's on the run
Faster then the speed of light
And soon the day turns into night
And when we finally see the light
Gone like vapors in the night

Gone like vapors
And when we finally see the light
Gone like vapors in the night

And somewhere
In the midst of it all
The sun still shines
The sun still shines on
And the starts just pine
And then we only find
We never had a voice
Gone like vapors
It's not a choice
Track Name: Secrets
It's not surprising
That a moon is rising in another sky
Giving up their secrets as they roll on by

There's stars colliding
And there's just no hiding as they burn and die
Living in a supernova sky

Giving up their secrets as they say goodbye
Never asking why

Some will give forever
Some will just deny
Secrets of the sky
Track Name: Waves
Like the tide
It comes in waves
Our lives our filled
With endless numbered days
And in the end
we're sleeping in our graves

It comes in waves
It comes in many shades
And as the waves come rolling up the beach
The ones we see, the ones we never reach
And all the lessons, there's no one there to teach
And so are born, the songs we like to preach

Looking out across the bay
Marching in a vast array
It's like a Holiday
It reaches far beyond the waves
I've heard it said that Jesus saves
So you'd better pray

The waves upon the rocks
The ticking of a clock
The hands of time will set you free

We hear the ocean's sound
We hear it all around
And life is only but a dream

While underneath the waves
In underwater caves
Such a quiet place to be
Far below the sea

Looking out across the waves
In the end we all behave
While exploring coral caves
Holding on the song remains

While rolling with the waves
Enjoy the better days
While floating in the sky
We only realize
The more things try to change
The more they stay the same
The more we play the game
The more it comes in waves
Track Name: Psychedelic Skin
It's never sorted
And a bit distorted
And it always starts
where it begins

Sometimes it gets under your skin
And all the times you never win
Psychedelic skin
She's got psychedelic skin
psychedelic skin
psychedelic skin

A psychedelelic grin
psychedelic skin
psychedelic
psychedelic skin

It's always changing
And re-arranging
Psychedelic skin
Psychedelic skin
Psychedelic skin
Psychedelic skin
Psychedelic skin
Track Name: Weed
Was there anything at all
Heard the painting on the wall
Making music across the hall
But I really can't recall
Fly away

I still remember when we were kids
I still remember all the things we did
I can't remember why I wrote this song
I can't remember where I put the bong

I can't remember much
I don't want to remember much
I can't remember much
Remember just enough
To keep you normal
So take another puff
Until you're paranoid
Track Name: Tales Calculated To Drive You Mad
You look into the mirror
You look into the light
You look into tomorrow
But she ain't looking right

You live another day
You push it all away
So far away

You're feeling kind of bad
But you really should be glad
That's what she said

Another try to push the time away
Another day we sleep it all away
Some say go another way
Some say go another way

And then she sheds another tear
Give my regards to mother dear
You know there's only life to fear

And life is full of trails
Of calculated tales
To drive you mad
Track Name: Generator (Bonus Track)
The generator
The generator
The generator
The generator

The generator's spinning round and round
If there's no one there to hear it does it make a sound
Now I don't know if it's right or wrong
But we're burning up the generator all day long

The generator
The generator
The generator
The generator

The generator's spinning oh so fast
Now we're only getting older as the time goes past
Now I don't know if we still belong
But we're burning up the generator all day long

The generator
The generator
The generator
The generator
Track Name: When Punk Was Punk (Bonus Track)
Johnny Rotten at an all time low
And then Sid Vicious he would break his nose
When the Buzzcocks were all the rage
I heard a rumor that they shit on stage

Back when Punk was Punk
Back when Punk was Punk
Back when Punk was Punk
Back when Punk was Punk

That Pete Shelly he was always stoned
Now were stopping in Havanna just to see the Ramones

Back when Punk was Punk
Back when Punk was Punk

Wanna go back to the other way
I just can't see it and I just can't stay
We were punkin since we were skids
And we're still just punkin like we always did

Back when Punk was Punk
Back when Punk was Punk

Startin trouble and smokin spliffs
Now we're all just punkin like a bunch of stiffs

Back when Punk was Punk

Johnny Rotten was all the rage
And you know he wouldn't have it any other way
If Sid Vicious was still alive
You could bet he'd be punkin till the day he died

Back when Punk was Punk
