Track Name: Mad
You're in my mind, you're in my mind
Like an unsettling good melody
That I cannot put my finger on
And it drives me mad

You're past my blood, you're in my soul
Preying on my everything, I loose control
When I think of you
And it drives me mad

I walked and walked for miles and miles
Years and years went by
Begging not to see your smile
But no matter how hard I tried

You're in my mind, you're in my soul
And I should've known
I tried to go but you
Just won't leave me alone

How can I think? I thunk a thought
Sinking like a chunk of a rock they left behind
Giants used to live here before
But now they do no more

I roamed the earth with driftwood feet
I was flippin' and a floppin' not flyin' just floatin'
Begging that I do not breathe
Your high so potently

You used to rest your head on my shoulder
And say carry me over
But that's just a thing of the past
Track Name: Past the Shore
Old Man Time
Won't you come back to me now?
I paid my dues and fines
Yet you still hand me the plow

I want to fly in a hot air balloon
Making my way towards the moon
I want to go where man's never been before
Where the coo coo bird sings past the shore

Old Man Time
This is me here in your face
Give me back my mind
And I will leave from this place

I've gathered wood and a sheet made of skin
Lend me your fire and wind
Fly past the earth to the big great unknown
Higher and higher we go

I don't ever want to see land
No more
Past the shore
Track Name: X
Down
He's going down
Down to that place
Where X marks the spot
"Me and you are going to have a..."

Talkin' bout the soul of a man
As it sways there to and fro
Cut the thread upon the X and go

Home
He's a' goin' home
Soon as he finds your bones

Down
He's going down
Down to that place of relief
He is going to be set free
Track Name: From Time to Time
I am but a man, I understand
That a man can only do so much
And I get by but there are times
When I still need a crutch
I fell down but I get back up
I fuck around and I drink too much
But I still need a gentle touch
From time to time

You caught my eye as you walked by
And then everything that I knew
Was new again and I let you in
And now everything that I do
I do for you, your in my mind
I need your love and I crave your kiss
A man like me needs someone to miss
From time to time

I've been having dreams of certain things
Things that never seem to make sense
And though I know it comes and goes
I can't help but think that some are prominent
I've been the fool and I've played the wiseman
And I'm confused now that I still understand
That everyone just needs a hand
From time to time

So please don't look at me
And think you'll see just exactly what is on my mind
Because I don't know which way I'll go
Or if I'm wrong when I am thinking that I'm right
Do what I be, sometimes I land
And I start to shake and it never ends
But all I really need is a friend
From time to time
Track Name: The Day the Devil...
I was living free, cleverly and rich
Never really cared about anything I did
Then everything changed on the day
The Devil took my happiness away

I could kiss the moon, drink the 7 seas
Wake up on a cloud and do anything I pleased
Then everything changed on the day
The Devil took my happiness away

Think about a trip to the edge of time
I don't think the edge of time will really mind

If I could feel again, that feeling that I had
Then I would promise you to never do bad
Oh Lord won't you take me back to that day
The Devil took my happiness away
Track Name: Train is Gone
I don't about know your ragtop
Your Buddha belly
Your foodstamps
Your waddle walk
Walking with a bottle downtown
You never make a sound
With your bang chang boogie woogie
You're a real wookie
A real hairy cookie
Looking out the back window
I know now that you made
A deal with the Devil that you can't escape

High tide's comin' and the train is gone
Go home
Chili potholes never tasted so great

She was a good girl
From a little town
Had a little dog
And braids in her hair
One bedroom
In the big, big city
Going to try and walk around
In those high heels
Workin' it
She's a' workin' it
With a cherry chainsaw
On the center stage
I know now that you made
A deal with the Devil that you can't escape

High tide's comin' and the train is gone
Go home
Muddy money hole never tasted so great

Steel snaggletooth
With the red-eye
Got the blue shoes
And a black tie
In a monkey suit
That's a little too fine
For a slack-jawed local like you
I know now
What you're doing
And I know now
That you've been using
And I I know now that you made
A deal with the Devil that you can't escape

High tide's comin' and the train is gone
Go home
Cross that river and cast that stone
Track Name: Vendetta
If you ever see me you better run and hide
I've got a grudge for you and I've seen your devil eyes
Take a hold of me

If you ever see me coming you better say your prayers
Vendetta can't be stopped by a devil-eyed woman like you
I will make you go crazy

You're never going to see me
You're never going to see me again

I'm knocking at your door
I know now where you live
Your new home is going to get out of control
Track Name: The Beast and the Man
They wait
For the lights to come on
And the stage
To be filled with their horns
Then they play...

They think
He's a monkey that claps tambourines
(clap clap)
Hear his music box mermaid
She sings...

All they see is the beast
Not the man...

Through the leaves
To an old wooden home
In the trees
Where he lives solo
So as to breathe...
Track Name: My Tiny Little Friend and I
Hey there little fellow
With your tiny little arms and little feet
Crawl inside my knapsack
And we can get you in the show for free

Hopefully
You and me
Will be two for the price of one
And if we get in
Me and my tiny little friend
Are gonna have some fun

Hey there little fellow
Oh where oh where did you go?
I turned my head for a minute
And then the next thing that I know

I've lost you at the show
There's thousands in the crowd
And you could be anywhere
So draw your face
On a balloon
And let it fly in the air

Don't you be scared...

(They're going to get the little one)

Hog bone hilt knife
Cutting through the rope around your wrists
Tied tight
Time is a factor when they're coming back
They're coming after you
Their laughter like a zoo
It's me and you versus the consortium of freak babies
Elephant Men and a bearded lady
Why oh why oh why?
My tiny little friend and I tried not to look into their eyes
And now I know that I am not supposed to go
To places like this with my tiny little friend

Big top mama with a bottle of gin
She don't need help from her bulldog friends
Singin' 'Hoo da bop hoo da bop biddily o' bey'
It don't matter no time, no place

Man with the monocle spot your seat
Shoot you in the neck and then wrap you in a sheet
Into the river there you go...

The apeshit babylon in your tree made a monkey out of me
Now I don't wanna wear no more clothes, I'm a jungle man

Big top took my little friend
So I hit her in the head with a bottle of gin
'Hoo da bop hoo da bop biddily o' black'
Grab those tiny little fingers then we run on out

Man with the monocle spot our flight
Duck a whizzy bullet make it out all right
Singin' 'Hoo da bop hoo da bop biddily o'

Down the rabbit hole there we go...

Hey there little fellow
What the hell has happened here tonight?
Me and you we saw them 'chet down, hoo...
ba ba zoup, ha ha zoom' and we barely made it out alive

The show is over
It's time to go home
I'm sad to see it all come to an end
As we walk off
In the horizon
Me and my tiny little friend
Track Name: Mad (Reprise)
You're in my mind, you're in my soul
And I should've known
I tried to go but you
Just won't leave me alone
