Track Name: 7 Days
I remember back last week
When you were still my friend.
When you were acting oh, so, sweet
And you said it would never end.
But now after 7 days,
It's all been turned around.
Don't know why you're different,
But here's the thing I found:

7 days is long enough to make one weak.
7 days since that first kiss. Now I’m turning the other cheek.
7 days in your good graces, so I'm so amazed.
Feels like an eterntity but it's only 7 days.


When I saw you that first time,
Well, you took my breath away.
It was a feeling so sublime
And it lasted till this day.
Though I never left your side,
Familiarity bred contempt.
And every day was a downhill slide
As I failed in my attempt.

7 days is long enough to make one weak.
7 days since that first kiss. Now I’m turning the other cheek.
7 days in your good graces, so I'm so amazed.
Feels like an eterntity but it's only 7 days.


Well, it was awesome. It was great.
But now it's said and done.
You're telling me it's a big mistake.
Well, sweetheart, you're not the only one, and
You wanted to pass some time
While I only wanted you.
But you won't be on my mind
When day 8 comes shining through.

7 days is long enough to make one weak.
7 days since that first kiss. Now I’m turning the other cheek.
7 days in your good graces, so I'm so amazed.
Feels like an eterntity but it's only 7 days.
Track Name: anonymous
I wrote a love poem, but I didn’t sign my name.
I left a word out, as if you’d hear it just the same.
And I gave it to you while I hid behind a poet’s mask.
Like my sincerity would mean enough for you to ask

Why I’m anonymous.
When I’m anonymous.
But, I’m anonymous, though I want you.

I hid in mystery, as if as no one I could catch your heart.
I was deceiving you and in obscurity I made my art.
And there I wrote to you while concealed within a pseudonym.
I really thought you’d understand me. Instead you fell in love with him.

‘Cause I’m anonymous.
Yes, I’m anonymous.
And I’m anonymous, though I want you.

I saw you yesterday, but I know you won’t see me.
And so I’m desperate to reveal my true identity.
But it’s so difficult while I’m feeling so damned alone.
There is no revelation and I am still unknown.

And I’m anonymous.
Yes, I’m anonymous.
Ooh, I’m anonymous, though I want you.
Track Name: Big Lie
You've been a mystery,
your secret place to hide.
You had the luxury
to keep it all inside.
But now the sun sets faster.
The past and the future merge.
Love is a big disaster,
and you're almost on the verge.

It's not Mardi Gras.
Nothing comes for free.
You want what you saw.
Just what did you see?
And now double vision
Makes it all look worse.
Consumed with indecision,
a blessing becomes a curse.

All that was said
means nothing to you.
You only see red.
I only see blue.
I'd walk through the fire,
but I don't know why.
Though neither of us is a liar,
It's still a big lie.
Track Name: Come Away
Going in circles,
Day after day,
You couldn't find
Peace of mind
Or any other way.
The cage is unlocked now.
You found a key.
So, swing the gate wide open.
Come, come away with me.

Stop looking backward.
Just try again.
Take my hand,
Understand,
I am your friend.
Leave it behind now.
Why can't you see?
The way is straight ahead of you
To come away with me.

Abandon your baggage.
No need to pack.
Everything of
Yesterday
Is holding you back.
Once you were trapped
But now you're free.
We'll take a train to anywhere,
So, come away with me.
Track Name: Don't Take on the World
I had the might
and I felt strong
and I was right
and the whole damned world was wrong.
and I scorned the faces
a million smiles
'cause I was far ahead
a half a million miles.

Baby, don't you try to take on the world.
Don't take on the world.

I looked for sympathy.
I wanted tears.
I drowned my sorrows
in one too many beers.
and I made some enemies.
I made mistakes.
I took no prisoners
gave no one any breaks.

I went to battle.
Hell, I went to war.
I fought for things that I can't
fight for any more.
Now I scream "Freedom!"
instead of battle cries
'cause there's just no justice,
and everybody lies.
Track Name: Dreaming of Holding Her
She never looked twice while I was staring.
She never thought twice while I was thinking.
She never imagined while I was dreaming of holding her.

She never pretended that I held meaning.
She never intended that starlight evening.
She never imagined that I was dreaming of holding her.

Now I have to wonder if it wasn't all just a game
Because when I met her, she already knew my name.
Maybe it's destiny. Maybe I have no control.
But if it's not then she'll be the one I will hold.

She never replied to all my pretensions.
She never implied she knew my intentions.
She never imagined all of my dreaming of holding her.

Dreaming of holding her.
I'm only dreaming of holding her.
Dreaming of holding her.
Dreaming of holding her.
Track Name: Finally Time (Moving Sale)
I'm putting one and one together again
and making it come out two.
I spent an eternity waiting for a friend.
Figured it might be you.
But now I stand beneath this summer sun
with junk piled all around.
I'm tired of dreaming that you'll be the one
And I'm tired of living in this town.

And so I guess it's finally time
to have a moving sale.

Well, I suppose it's been too many years
And after all you're not a child
But we're still kept apart by out own fears
Can't you admit the way you smiled?
It might have been how much we drank that night.
I guess it could have been the moon.
But when I touched you in that fading light
I knew that it'd be ending soon.

And so I guess it's finally time
to have a moving sale.

And if we would have had this love affair
And if we changed the course of time.
If I could lose myself in your long hair
If I could change you mind
But if I waited another century
And if I love you until I die
I know that you won't be waiting there for me
and I know that you won't even cry when I say

When I say, I guess it's finally time
to have a moving sale.

It's finally time.
Finally time.
Finally time.
Track Name: Going Nowhere
A man and woman, one car between them,
They go to work their separate ways.
They’re losing sleep just to keep the lights on
And pay to have more time to pay.

And maybe someday they’ll do better
If they believe in miracles.
And maybe someday they’ll wake up and smell the coffee:
They’re going nowhere.

Employers promise them a living
And then demand that living back
A rat-race there’s no chance of winning
And they’ve only started down the track.

But maybe someday they’ll do better
‘Cause they believe in miracles
Or maybe someday they’ll wake up and smell the coffee:
They’re going nowhere.

And late at night they whisper softly
Where they may end up one day.
They won’t believe that this whole world’s against them
‘Cause they obey the law and pray

That maybe someday they’ll do better.
Maybe they’ll win the lottery.
Maybe someday they’ll wake up and smell the coffee:
They’re going nowhere.
Track Name: Here and There
Now, the rain beats down on the windshield.
In the rear view I see the tears run down
Because I'm not sure when I can return again.
I can't believe I leave each time I leave this town.

CHORUS:

And so it's:
Every day and every night
and every dark and every light
and every sun and every moon
and every midnight and every noon
and every dusk and every dawn
and every evening and every morn
and every shadow and every shine
while I'm still alone, until you are mine
the cloudy twilight and blue sky fair,
I'll be at once both here and there.

As the trees race past, I'm pushing 80
and I'm lost inside of my inward blur.
Because I know for sure that she'll be waiting.
I vow I'll drive again to common ground with her.

CHORUS

So, I'm driving home on the interstate.
God, I hate this drive, still it's what I must do.
Because I left my heart in my hometown.
I thought I'd left for good. I left my love with you.

CHORUS
Track Name: HOME
And one night, I'm going to get the courage.
And one night, I'm going to take the chance.
And one night, I'm going to make it happen.
And one night, you and I are gonna dance
When I follow you

HOME

Do I watch, as you share every secret?
Do I watch, as you check-in alone?
Do I watch? As if you'd even notice.
Do I watch? I watch your every move
Until I follow you

HOME

And then I see you walking across the parking lot.
When you approach me, I become a fool.
I'm stammering and stuttering, all words forgot.
I ramble and I babble and I drool
How it's been
Such a long time
I hope to see you soon.
(HOME)


And now, please, don’t become suspicious.
And now, please, accept me as your friend.
And now, please, there is no real danger.
Oh, but, please, I'm begging, let me in
When I follow you

HOME
Track Name: I Lose Control
When I see your face, dear.
And when I hold your hand.
And when I'm close beside you.
You've gotta understand, babe.

I lose control.

Now, when you wear that dress, darling.
You know, the one that fits just right.
Well, even in the early morning time,
I start to think about the night, babe.

When I lose control.

And when at last the evening comes, sweetheart,
I hold my breath and count to ten
To try to make one moment last forever
At least until it comes around again.

That I lose control.
Track Name: Little Crawfish
A la bas, a la bas!
Ooh, cher, laissez les bons temps rouler!

Long ago and far away,
A Little Crawfish came to play.
Dug in at end of day,
And then just disappeared.

Little Crawfish, back to your hole.
It’s dangerous here and you’re getting old.
You could have had anything you want
But you just went back ways instead of front.


Seasons changed and she got fat
On birthday cake and all of that
But soon in nothing flat,
She vanished in the mud.

Little Crawfish, back to your hole.
It’s dangerous here and you’re getting old.
You wanted to dance on a sunlit shore
But those days are gone forever more.


Little Crawfish

Aw, how you feel?
I feel bad.
Oh, take this crawfish. Good medicine!
I feel good! I feel good! I feel good!

Little Crawfish


Then one day when it got late,
Little Crawfish met her fate.
That’s her there on your plate,
And down the hatch she goes.

Little Crawfish, back to your hole.
It’s dangerous here and you’re getting old.
You tried to hide on the river bank
But now I see you met the propane tank.

Little Crawfish, back to your hole.
You've run out of time. Now you’re getting cold.
You always hid whenever things got hot
Until lid was on the crawfish pot.


Little Crawfish

AhhYEE!
Ooh, gimme summa dat crawfish etouffee!
Ooh, cher!
Oh, summa dat crawfish pie!

Little Crawfish

Ooh, dat crawfish bread is some good, ya!

Little Crawfish
Track Name: Pay the Price
I have been in deepest sorrow.
And I have been in jubilation.
And I have been in the city way too long.

And it’s the right of everyone to choose their own way.
And it’s the right of everyone to test their destiny.
And it’s the right of everyone to seek the freedom they so long for.

If they’ll pay the price.

I have seen a hundred rivers.
And I have seen a thousand sunsets.
And I have seen a million miles of empty road.

And it’s the past for good or ill that leads us forward.
And it’s the past with all the pain that makes us human.
And it’s the past of fear and love that’s recreated every dawn.

But we’ll pay the price.

I have called to every neighbor.
And I have called a foe my friend.
And I have called for a new call to arms.

And it’s the day before the light to make a difference.
And it’s the day without the rain to see the sunshine.
And it’s the day in my own life to tip the weighted scales of justice.

And I’ll pay the price.
Track Name: She Doesn't Even Care
I spent a long, long time making observations on the sly
And I was sure she knew and sure that she didn't mind.
But then I think that I scared her when I opened my heart.
'Cause I was ready to finish. I was ready to start.
And though she might have been hinting,
She still said that it wasn't time.

CHORUS:
She doesn't even care
What she does to me
Doesn't even care
How I cry
She doesn't even care
How I feel for her
Doesn't even care
So, why do I?

I spent a long, long time in imaginations I made up
But when I brought it up, she didn't say "yea" or "nay."
I thought she could have seen through my tissue paper pretense.
It seemed like everybody else knew but she still took offense.
I let my mouth hand wide open
'Cause I couldn't find a word to say.

CHORUS

I spent a long, long time waiting for a woman like her.
And now she's here but I am still alone.
And I've been counting on the sunsets and the phases of the moon
But it still don't look like anything'll be happening soon
And I've been drinking and thinking that
I'd rather have her here at home.

CHORUS
Track Name: The World's Most Beautiful Girl
She just doesn’t feel for me the way I feel for her.
Still, I just can’t get her off my mind.
I would give her everything if she just said she cares.
But it’s an enormous waste of time.

I’m looking down
from the top of the world.
‘Cause I am in love
with the world’s most beautiful girl.

I know there would be problems if she dared to answer “yes”
to all my desperate propositioning.
But since the day she kissed me and I melted in her arms
All I do is think of her and sing.

Every up has downsides. Rainbows only follow rain.
The glass is half full, half the other way.
And it might be tragic if I said that stupid word,
So I put it off another day.
Track Name: They Stole the Sun
It took a cup of coffee to take the morning news.
There's nothing you can say to me to take away these blues.
The TV's trying to tell me that the President's on my side.
But I can see the things he's done and I can see they lied.

Maybe you can say I'm not the only one
But first convince me that they didn't steal the sun.

I watch my hands grow weaker from making daily bread
To feed a rich man's family while starving mine instead.
And I elected a President who promised me a break
But he don't give me anything because he's on the take.

Maybe you can say I'm not the only one
But first convince me that they didn't steal the sun.

I know it's always been this way but that don't make it right.
And it's a little worse today because it's always night.
But when the revolution shuts down every power grid
We'll notice just how dark it's been and where the sun's been hid

Maybe you can say I'm not the only one
But first convince me that they didn't steal the sun.
Track Name: Too Easy
I saw the pop-up for a new dating website
SWF looking for a single male.
I saw the pop-up for a new dating website
One hundred people trying to find love by email.

But that's
Too easy
Too easy
Too easy, at least to me
Don't you agree that that's much too easy?
At least, too easy for love...

I saw the guest on a daytime talk show
Relate a love life that you just would not believe.
I saw the guest on a daytime talk show
One hundred lovers and the best ones were the ones who would leave.

I saw the ad on a billboard today
A bargain rate on an uncontested divorce.
I saw the ad on a billboard today
One hundred dollars for when love has run its course.
Track Name: Vote the Crime Out 2012
From Los Angeles to NYC,
Chicago to New Orleans,
Kansas City, Dallas-Fort Worth, too.
Denver, Boston, Indy, Philly, Minneapolis
Atlanta, Phoenix, Detroit even you.

You've got yourself a President
and the U.S. Congress too.
Supposed to do whatever it is you say.
But stop and think about what they’ve done:
It’s what’s they did to us.
And realize that we’re the ones to pay.


We gotta vote the crime out
Make law and justice what we vote for now.
We gotta throw the bums out.
I know that we can get it done somehow.


They tax your income.
They take your house.
They contaminate your food.
They charge a fortune for your prescription drugs.
While corporate executives fly
aeroplanes tax-free
And then campaign to reelect the thugs.

Cleveland, Portland, Salt Lake City,
Louisville, Baltimore,
St. Louis, Vegas, Charlotte, Birmingham,
Milwaukee, Nashville, Hartford, Richmond,
Seattle, OKC,
Miami, Honolulu, make a stand.


We gotta vote the crime out.
Make law and justice what we vote this time.
We gotta throw the bums out.
At least we know how to fight white collar crime.


Now, we're all working hard day and night
Just to try to make ends meet.
But no one gives a damn when we get robbed
By bankers, lawyers, insurance men,
And the ones we vote for, too.
It’s time to have a ballot box flash mob.

Sacramento, San Diego, Austin, San Antone,
Tampa-St. Pete, Cinci, San Jose,
Pittsburg, Houston, Albuquerque,
Memphis, Jacksonville,
Orlando, Raleigh, San Francisco Bay.


We gotta vote the crime out
Make law and justice what we vote for now.
We gotta throw the bums out.
I know that we can get it done somehow.
Track Name: What You Got?
I got a little bit of nerve.
I got a little bit of brain.
I got a little bit of pleasure.
Got a little bit of pain.
I got a little bit to hide.
I got a little bit to show.
I got a little bit to come.
I got a little bit to go.

Ooh, baby, what you got for me?
Ooh, baby, what you got?

I got a little bit of fear.
I got a little bit to wait.
I got a little bit of heaven.
Got a little bit of hate.
I got a little hesitation.
Got a little bit to try.
I got a little bit of lovin’.
Got a little bit to fly.

I got a little bit of money.
Got a little bit of time.
I got a little bit of rhythm.
Got a little bit of rhyme.
I got a little bit disturbed.
I got a little bit distressed.
I got a little bit misguided.
Got a little bit obsessed.
