Track Name: Found
When they found you
They knew you’d not be easy to convince
But then things changed for you
You saw things brighter than the day before
And on the morrow you said
“Hey I came to back you guys up
But you should know I do no
Good to no one”

When we get there
We’ll be many more than just us
Our heads will split and grow
Remember fun is always worth it
Judy always dreams of horses
And you needn’t know if you’re coming back

Just, just
Get, get
Them, them
Out, out

I wanna be away for a long time
I wanna be away for a long time
I wanna be away for a long time
Long time

Just get them out

I wanna be away for a long time
I wanna be away for a long time
I wanna be away for a long time
I wanna be away

Just get them all out here
Just get them all out.
Track Name: Doses
I’ve been climbing up the bushes
Made a home out of dirt and sweat
Drew maps from some reflections
Bumped into towns of clowns
Where I had to step on some heads to save my own
And I talked Sleepy Man into coming along
He gave in but stayed, though
What is it that they’re hiding?
What is it that they fear to loose?

I needn’t have spent all my doses
Might even get some more to spread around
It’s not yet the time for us under roses

So many pink points gone black means there must have been some fire
There must have been some

I needn’t have spent all my doses
Might even get s’more to spread around

I needn’t have spent all my doses
Might even get some more to spread around
It’s not yet the time for us under roses

It’s not yet the time, it’s not yet the time
For us under roses.
Track Name: El Río
Cold shifts of wind have brought her
Now the trees where she
Where she picked her first tangerines
They want her back
Are these the stories from ballads?
What’s it going to be?
Tell me how’s it been back then
Tell me how’s it been

Have you got time?
I really need to catch up with you
Is it not the first time
That your eyes aren’t as blue?
Just if you tried it’d be nice

Remain asleep for a minute
And be born again

Has it been loud?
And did you like it?
I’d like you to
El Río is not the same now
Boats are gone, ships are off
But just if you tried it’d be nice

Has it been loud?
And did you like it?
I’d like you to
El Río is not the same now

Have you got time?
I really need to catch up with you
Is it not the first time
That your eyes aren’t as blue?
Just if you tried it’d be nice
Track Name: Forget My Face
Forget My Face.

Forget my face
Just don’t be polite
‘Ccause people like you
I don’t want to meet again

Forget my face
Make sure to go fast
‘Cause people like me
Cannot stand the tick of time

When you choose
When you choose
You might actually bore someone
Es así.

When you choose where you go
When you choose where you go
You pretend that you care
You’re a smiler
I go higher

Forget my face
Just don’t be surpprised
‘Cause people like you
I don’t want to meet again

When you choose
When you choose
God can’t stand your whining prayers
So cruel

When you choose where you go
When you choose where you go
You pretend
You don’t care
You’re a smiler
You’re a smiler

Have you ever been frustrated in the past?
Is there fire running through your veins?
Is it time for you to make choises?

When you choose where you go
When you choose where you go
When you choose
When you choose
God can’t stand your whining prayers

When you choose where you go
When you choose
When you choose
Es así.
Track Name: Blue Sun
Good bye Blue Sun
I don’t ever want to
See you again
We’re all going
To miss you, though

Ooh
Bup bump bup boom
We just don't ever
bupbupbumparabarakhjb
kjghdjkabajdbkahjbchjkba
Ooh

Good bye blue sun
I got sad things to say
That can’t be declaired
Now give me some credit
For my lonelyness

Now for all of the times that you broke our hearts
We’re smiling right back

We're smiling right back
Track Name: We've Both Got Fire
We’re dressing up
We’re getting high
We’re not as far as to even think about it
We blew it once
Now I can’t recall
The kind of things that made me want to die

(Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands)

I don’t know how to be around
We’ve both got fire

Lights go out
Our faces, dark
And there are some others showing up through rainbows
Colours came
Light invades your eyes
And outside there is the blue grass

(Sad-eyed lady of the lowlands
Where the sad-eyed prophets say that no man comes)

I don’t know how to be around
We’ve both got fire
And it will burn deep down
Each time.
Track Name: Don Michel
He came down from the sky
Surfing on a cloud
Playing with his superpowers
Killing with his eyes

Don’t be afraid my darlin, there is no price to pay
He wants to save the planet, we trust in Don Michel

They found him out of town
Fighting a giant clum
He’s always up for kicking asses, that’s what gets him high
(That and the cigarrettes)

Don’t be afraid my darlin, there is no price to pay
He wants to save the planet, we trust in Don Michel
Track Name: Bugs In The Rain
I Could take hours doing my things
You could take hours to notice me
And I feel down
‘Cause we’re just little bugs in the rain

“It’s all in your mind”
That’s how we get by
“It’s all in your mind”
And how we live
It don’t mean we’re here to stay

I Could take hours doing my things
You could take hours to notice me
And I feel down
‘Cause we’re just little bugs in the rain

“It’s all in your mind”
That’s how we get by
“It’s all in your mind”
And how we live
Isn't how I'm going to pay

‘Cause we’re just little bugs in the rain
Little bugs in the rain
Little bugs in the rain
Track Name: Susie Pye
“My hounds they all go masterless
My hawks they flee from tree to tree
My younger brother will heir my land
My country again I’ll never see”

How could someone
Do me harm when I’m free?

No, it’s not
But I could get you one now
Yes, I am
And I can tell you’re not cold

Susie Pye took the half ring
And she went down to the seashore
Susie Pye drew her shoes off
Pokets filled with gold and white bread

“Alright, so we have to kill a chiken
Yeah, we could shoot it but why not lighting it up?”
Clupsy Jules and the Cigarrette Hitters where there
They said it wasn’t cruel to do it
I mean, CJ wasted a couple of matches and all
But we did it and we all got hurt
That flaming creature was an appetite blocker to say the least

No, it’s not
But I could get you one now
Yes, I am
And I can see you’re not cold

Susie Pye took the half ring
And she went down to the seashore
Susie Pye drew her shoes off
Pokets filled with gold and white bread

Susie Pye put on her scarlet robe
And went down to the seashore

No, it’s not
But I can get us one now
Yes, I am
And I can tell you’re not cold

Susie Pye took the half ring
And she went down to the seashore
Susie Pye drew her shoes off
Pokets filled with gold and white bread
Track Name: Winefully
At least they got the story right
As one would guess from the start
It’s nearly fair to be mad

“So it all turned out great for you
Me, I’m piking up bottles and pretending it’s champagne
D’you think we’ll ever get suringes and joints on stage?”

“Well, you are making me feel at ease right now
Not for your kisses, but for your slaping me bad
I can winefully explain it to you but
Will you understand?”

We’re talking
And them, bleading
It’s high time we put ourselves in their shoes
They made the choise of the century

"My imagination, me, and each one's other self
Are playing around now"

Just playing around now
Track Name: Funny Guy
I never complained about a thing in all my life
Always trying to get a smile and be the funny guy
Pay the rent and work all day
Don't waste your precious time
Buy a car and go to church and pray to stay alive

Sunday morning, go for a ride
Try not to go to sleep too late
forget the smoke, the booze, the fuck
Save your money, cut your hair
be grateful all the time
take a pill, relax yourself
and try no to get mad
