Track Name: Strawberry Lap
The tiny voice.
The distance lapsed.
The amber romance.
The Moving glance.
The young girl waiting.
The street in light.
The turn-on, the come-on.
The stretching night.
The busy digits.
The laughing head.
The time on the phone.
The things she said.

The eye she looks.
The how she speaks.
The what she gives.
The held she keeps.
The young girl smiling.
The men lock sight.
The stop-off, the drop-off.
The things done right.
The lazy crazy.
The whirling head.
The time in the car.
the things she said.

The smile touches lips.
The palm caresses back.
The face of shiny apples.
The strawberry lap.
Track Name: I'll Go With You
You stood up to proclaim
Among the riots and the flames
That you would be free?
From what others claim
The gossip and the the gospel
Well you found them both well
Once caged and once free
Of the stories they tell

When they slay you with the word
I'll stand there and be your sword
when you're ready
I'll go with you

For them it wasn't enough
Once to rough you up
Try and keep you from me
But they don't know what they've done
As for your self you ve had a time
In admitting you could be mine
And no one could take from
Though I'm sure they'd try

When your made to kneel
I'll stand there and be your shield
When you're ready
I'll go with you
Track Name: Represent
A friend that's hard to find
It's harder to lose
I've been alienating people for years
Harder living most honest
When no one believes in your tears

I can see you want respect
but what you get is what you dont expect
The greatest present
is when you come to represent
When you come to represent your self

We're not a subtle as we think
There's a a drop of blood at ever step
One day I'm gonna fight you to the death
We'll flash our blades in the company of friends

If it's a joke then it's not very funny
I have a few stories i can tell
My barber always said I'd never lose my friends
I'll see them all again in hell

I can see you want respect
but what you get is what you dont expect
The greatest presence
Is when you come to represent your self

What would I be if i didn't know you
I don't think I could stand myself
In the end we're all just a reflection
A reflection of ourselves
And oh it's nothing new
But only you and me
Only me and you

I can see you want respect
but what you get is what you don't expect
The greatest presence
is when you come to represent me too
When you come to represent me too
Track Name: Pull Youself Together
Kind of bad on the bones
When you're living out on loans
Take your time find a home
Somewhere to call your own
Think it through make a plan
Have a seat or take a stand
Throw down your arms or
Raise your hands
Someones bound to understand

You'll sleep so much better
Through every kind of weather
Once you pull yourself together

Find a penny pass it on
Forget the past move along
It's okay to be wrong
(as) Long as you know what went wrong
Find a Girl you cant believe
One with Eyes that help you see
There's more to want
then there's to need

You'll sleep so much better
Through every kind of weather
Once you pull yourself together
Track Name: City Of Peace
Well i never met a mishap
That wasn't named after me
The ghost of New York and
The sea of New Orleans
California took a long swim
Though the odds weren't good
Las Vegas couldn't stand to be
Without Hollywood
Boston lost its liberty
To a baseball team
In some ways it sounds like me
But i don't know what it means
Sooner or later no one will live
Where they used to live
Where could they be going
I wonder where they've been

They sold the southern states to Mexico
Texas didn't take it well
They didn't even get a phone call
Just a letter in the mail
China called dibs on Denver
The terrorists want D.C
Tibet wants its freedom
But no ones listening
So Tennessee started crying
We'd like to volunteer
But we need a paying job
We'll be back in a year

Sooner or later no one will live
Where they used to live
Where could they be going
I wonder where they've been

You see the reds
They want the universe
But we've got a base on the moon
But back there in old Palestine
there just aint enough room.
The Greeks they had philosophers
And the Spartans too
But we'd just as soon bomb Canada
For a little more food
Kansas committed suicide
Hung on its bible bells
But all its neighbors kept wondering
Just how it felt

Sooner or later no one will live
Where they used to live
Where could they be going
I wonder where they've been

Well all this kind
Of sight seeing
We've been at it for hours
When exactly did it happen
That this country was not our
I wanna see Anchorage
I wanna see Waikiki
The map showed the way but
There just wasn't much to see
Alaska froze to death you know
Hawaii drowned last year
You just couldn't kill that highway
In a million years.
Weren't you just saying
People were going missing
Well i think i know where they were going
You see its just up the street

But if you insist on driving
From the back seat
We're gonna miss our exit
To the city of Peace.
Track Name: Lodger
Lodger complain
Against the lodger in my brain
The flat he's occupied
He's having pains of suicide
They say wait till he sleeps
then duplicate the key
sneak into his head
humor him to death

It's love we harmonize
That wets are appetite

I tried my proper sneak
But the bastard never sleep
Just paces back and forth
As if he's giving birth
He opens up his mouth
A baby Falls right out
Tickled to the gills
He names her Sleeping Pills

It's love we harmonize
That wets are appetite

He swallows her head first
The first act in reverse
Track Name: One Day
One day they're gonna call us
From the dead letter office
They've got for you
Some kind of piece of mail
It seems the world was waiting
With hands folded clapping
But who it's from is just to hard to tell

Well it's none of our business
but to find an address
we just thought we had to let you know
Cause there's is nothing on the air waves
The war and the replays
Hey that's it now go and start the show.
