Track Name: We All Go
Osama bin laden / thoroughly wanton / strikes a blow for heaven
Airport security / makes a fool of me / every time I go a travelling
War breaks the bank / thieves help it tank / they eat their free lunch
I start cutting back / lose my house at that / thanks to the credit crunch

Oil keeps going up / sell my truck / oh my oh so bad luck
Fight or flight / Might ain’t right / I mooch another buck
Try to keep my Qi / moving naturally / that will set me free
Says Doctor Oz / Doctor Weil / Doctor Cosby, Doctor Welby

It’s a moral desert / dust keeps blowing in my eyes
I can hear the calling /a thunder pounds the darkened sky
Where angels fear to tread / a million clowns and I go
Pushing up and on / in search of kingdom come
It’s a supermarket Hajj / and we all go.

Help us William Gates / Larry Page / and Oprah Winfrey
Pay the stupid debt / save our skinny necks / hear this third world plea
We can see the light / Hollywood bright / at the tunnel’s end
Fox is the News / I’m sure those heartless fools / want to be our friend

I’m shooting over par / I want to be a big star / I’m sad with who I are
I buy and buy some more / what I can’t afford / but I don’t see that far
I got working overtime / but that was such a grind / I chose a life of crime
Started living big as Rap / bling and all that crap / and now I’m doing mall time

It’s a moral desert / dust keeps blowing in my eyes
I can hear the calling / a thunder pounds the darkened sky
Where angels fear to tread / a million clowns and I go
Pushing up and on / in search of kingdom come
It’s a supermarket Hajj / and we all go.

The music of the muezzin / from the mega Mosque of malls
The Synagogue of curios / in plastic gold paint stalls
The opium of emporiums / plays kiss-your-sister rock
The overstocked Temple / of the Big Bad Box

The pilgrimage of discounts / (It's a fire sale fraud)
Holy price wars rage / praise the name of the Lard
A Crusade of promotions / and one time only rates
Blessed low cost credit / is the toll through pearly gates

The Church of Free Parking / greets mom and pop and all
Is your soul worth savings? / Lines are open make the call
With a rosary of coupons / pray, scratch, and save
It's the Trinity of three for one / Forget about the slaves
Track Name: Kicked Out
What you gonna do when I'm gone?
Who's gonna take out the trash?
Who's gonna cut the lawn?
What you gonna do when I'm gone?
Who's gonna take the kids to the store?
Who's gonna fix that squeaking door?

When you gonna say what I did wrong?
It's been long enough to write this mournful song
What you gonna do when I'm gone?
Who's gonna fix those leaking pipes?
Who's gonna hear all your gripes?

I won't get wasted with the boys all afternoon
We can go bowling baby, I won't get high, I just wanna be with you

My friends, my friends
They say I've got no backbone and say I just pretend
And that's fine, just fine
Till I say I got kicked out and now I'm moving in...with them...again

Who'g gonna wash the kitchen floor?
Who's gonna do every other nasty chore?
Who you gonna yell at when I'm gone?
With no one to poke at and dump frustrations out on?

I'm willing to take the blame for the pain of years gone by
I'm trying to play your game but please don't say it, please don't say goodbye

My friends, my friends
They say I've got no backbone and say I just pretend
And that's fine, just fine
Till I say I got kicked out and now I'm moving in...with them...again
Track Name: Statue In The Rain
It's Monday night at the laundry mat
It's a hundred and five maybe more than that
There's really no point in thinking anymore

I'm getting drunk on paper bag wine
Another bum wouldn't spare me a dime
I think a Disney princess just passed out on the floor

Can't move can't speak
Can't laugh can't weep
I'm a statue in the rain
No hope no fear No joy no tear
I'm a statue in the rain
Statue in rain

I'd rather live up high on a cul-de-sac
Get good and fat and have a cardiac
But with dumb blond luck I could never score

I'd drink tea by a blue and fragrant sea
China and a silver spoon if you please
Cause self restraint is such a chore

Can't move can't speak
Can't laugh can't weep
I'm a statue in the rain
No hope no fear No joy no tear
I'm a statue in the rain
Statue in rain

Well up in heaven there's a railway train
With all the gifts of heaven it's carrying
The train mans been drinking
He's sleeping at the switch

And down on earth I am waiting
For some of what that train is carrying
But a hundred prayers and he don't twitch

Can't move can't speak
Can't laugh can't weep
I'm a statue in the rain
No hope no fear No joy no tear
I'm a statue in the rain
Statue in rain
Track Name: World Without Love
In a world without love
Everything's a drug
And everybody gets strung out
On cheese cake to free base
The business man to nut case
Leave no room for doubt
In a world without love

In a world without love
It's what's missing in the blood
That leaves you lying on the floor
The Frisco Speed Ball
Popcorn and Demerol
Really don't matter anymore
In a world without love

Elliot Ness couldn't fight this crime
High wire titillation
War on television
Universal junkies just love to whine
Re-elect the president
He's doling out those drugs again

In a world without love
It's push and shove
Cause you know
They're coming back for more
It's leather and bobby socks
Perfume and baby talk
That make for the ultimate whore

In a world without love
Fighting for the cause
Is just buying a ticket at the door
It's champagne and caviar
For all those movies stars
Who donated to the poor
In a world without love
In a world without love

Elliot Ness couldn't fight this crime
High wire titillation
War on television
Universal junkies just love to whine
Re-elect the president
He's rolling out those drugs again

In a world without love...
Track Name: Perfect Pain
I fell like Humpty Dumpty
Got a broken crown
Followed Peter Piper
Got driven out of town
I'm small as Tom Thumb
Cause Cinderella dumped me
Feeling so dumb
I can't even get angry

No relief
Angel heart never wanted me
It's egomania I cannot see
Through this perfect pain
Through this perfect pain

I watch Snow White get dressed
You know it made me Weepy
Lonely like the rest:
Grumpy, Dopey, and Sleepy
A dwarf in love with her
Courts a slow disaster
It takes a Prince for sure
To live happy ever after

Consternation
I'm just a baby
I cannot sleep
And half insane
I cannot see
Through this perfect pain
Through this perfect pain

Sorry, for feeling so strong
Sorry, for being so wrong
Sorry, for wanting so much to be near you

I flew like Peter Pan
But it felt like Hari Kari
Thought I'd be the Tin Man
Not too very contrary
I tried to be the Wolf
If only you'd adore me
Anyone but myself
Would make a better story

Disbelief
Angel Heart
Never wanted me
It's egomania
I cannot see
Through this perfect pain
Through this perfect pain
Track Name: All The Tears In China
Angel close your eyes it’s time for bed
Upon my chest you lay your weary head
No worldly woes do you need to dread

Bless every step along the way
You will never know a judgement day
Your small and tender love
Is all there is to pay

For all the tears in China
For all the tears in China
For all the tears in China

And when your lonely struggles start
Take forgiveness to your heart
On each and every day

For all the tears in China
For all the tears in China
For all the tears in China

For all the tears in China
For all the tears in China
For all the tears in China

For all the tears in China
For all the tears in China
For all the tears in China
Track Name: I Will Wait For You
Long before you’d gone
I heard love’s swan song
Echo in the hollow
Beckon me to follow
How does love so sincere
End in hopeless tears?
I am Bogart in the rain
When will you come again?

Until the stars are gone
Until the seas are calm
I will wait for you my love
Wait for you my love

I am turning grey
Reckoning the days
There’s no end in sight
To this endless night
The moon is ever still
It goes against my will
I wonder how much time
Will finally make you mine

Until the stars are gone
Until the seas are calm
I will wait for you my love
Wait for you my love

Upon the lonely hill
I am restless still
I flounder in my sorrow
My golden calf tomorrow
Another darkened sky
The sunset is well-nigh
Dreaming of the highland
I remain an island

Until the stars are gone
Until the seas are calm
I will wait for you my love
Wait for you my love
Track Name: I'm Still There
There’s a flash across the midnight sky
Baby blue I can find that fire in your eye
You are the moon, I can see it
You shake the world, I can feel it

For one timeless breath I have no cares
There’s no one else when you are near
Don’t let the shadows make you cry
And I will sing you a lullaby

Of how someone great you'll one day be
And when you’re old remember me
For though I fade into the dark
An ember of me is still inside your heart

When you’re alone
Cold as stone
I’m still there
When you’re in love
Or lost in love
I’m still there

Take my silken pillow for your bed
I will take your smile for daily bread
The day will come when I am gone
But in your heart I’ll still go on and on

When you’re alone
Cold as stone
I’m still there
When you’re in love
Or lost in love
I’m still there

When you’re alone
Cold as stone
I’m still there
When you’re in love
Or lost in love
I’m still there
Track Name: Try
Do you know where we are going?
I am with you but seldom told
Is there a sign that we should follow?
I fear the trail is turning cold

Can we rest a while I’m growing weary?
And take some time before we grow to old?
The days are shorter now
Snow is falling
To save our love
We must be bold

Try when I speak to hear my words somehow
Come in from the raging storm
Or you won’t hear a sound

Take this chance
Take this chance
And touch me
Before we turn to shadows
And the last moon sails the sky
For chances
Like sand between our fingers
May slip before we’ve really tried

When we were young forever
We always had some place to hide
It was so sad to be that foolish
We can’t still
Afford that pride

Take to heart the words I have spoken
Take to heart the love in my eyes
Though every promise
Was not unbroken
Every hope
Is still alive

Try when I speak to hear my words somehow
Come in from the raging storm
Or you won’t hear a sound

Take this chance
Take this chance
And touch me
Before we turn to shadows
And the last moon sails the sky
For chances
Like sand between our fingers
May slip before we’ve really tried?
Track Name: The Happy King
(no lyrics)
Track Name: Turn That Radio Down
I'm sure my teachers' got somethin' to say
But I'm hitchin' my way out of town
I'm headed for the heat of Falcon Beach
It's beer and bikini's all around

And I'm sorry dear dad about my 'F' in math
Sorry 'bout my 'F' in job
But this crazy world's just gotta make you laugh
Or it's gonna make you sob

I know you mean every word you say
But please don't wear that frown
It's true I want to have my way
Sometimes I am a clown
I'll turn that radio down

My very pretty baby is so dam hip
Really lucky stars wish upon her
She can jam heavy traffic with a pouting lip
Or raise the dead in a sweater

She looks in my eyes I can see the sky
And hear the sweet ever after
And a million years lessons in true love lie
In her passion and her laughter

I know you mean every word you say
But please don't wear that frown
It's true I want to have my way
Sometimes I am a clown
I'll turn that radio
(,2,3,4)
Turn that radio

I know you mean every word you say
But please don't wear that frown
It's true I have to have my way
Sometimes I am a clown
But I promise there will come a day
I will make you proud
And I promise there will come a day
I'll turn that radio down
(I'll turn that radio down)

"Turn that Radio"
I hear what you say
"Turn that Radio"
I hear what you say...
Track Name: Take Me
Well I've been thinking about you and me
And the good old way we used to be
Some things I've said well I regret
Some things you dread well I ain't done yet

Just take me, take me as I am
A simple soul in a simple man
Got no secrets, got no plans
Just take me as I am
.. as I am

Well I've been wondering what will be
Watching over my destiny
The past you might as well forget
A sunrise looks much like a sunset

Just take me, take me as I am
A simple soul in a simple man
Got no secrets, got no plans
Just take me as I am

What comes must go I dare say
The two of us will see that day
But until we do let's live right
Seize the day and dance the night

Just take me, take me as I am
A simple soul in a simple man
Got no reasons, got no plan
Just take me as I am

Just take me, take me as I am
A simple soul in a simple man
Got no secrets, got no plans
Just take me as I am
.. as I am
Track Name: Elly
Don't cry Elly
It'll be alright
Feeling sad in the morning
And sad all through the night
Don't cry Elly
You love your baby
It'll be alright

You're a new momma
And it's true
Sometimes a baby
Can make you cry the blues
But don't cry mama
You're not alone Elly
It'll be alright

In a very little time
The world will seem so fine
And the baby crying
Will laugh
Hear the chimes
Of song and nursery rhymes
Give them a sign
And laugh

Don't cry Daddy
You gotta be a man
Do the best, the best that you can
For your baby, for your Elly
Don't cry Daddy
It'll be alright

In a very little time
The world will seem so fine
And the baby crying
Will laugh
Hear the chimes
Of song and nursery rhymes
Give them a sign
And laugh

You don't really have to fight
You can see the morning light
They love you Elly with all their might
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
