Track Name: In Words Drown I
Senile felines
Too hot to hoot
Wet sanitary rat in a stew
Too bad I hid a boot
We panic in a pew
Was it a car or a cat I saw
Dr. Awkward
Solo gigolos
O stone be not so

In words drown I

Lid off a daffodil
Dee saw a seed
Eve damned eden mad eve
Did hannah see bees hannah did
Do geese see god
Don't nod
Drab as a fool aloof as a bard
Do geese see god
Don't nod

In words drown I
Track Name: The Rub-a-Dub Boog-a-Loo
She said "How do you do?"

I said "How do you do? Would you let me rub-a-dub your boog-a-loo?"

She said "My boog-a-loo? Please excuse, I do not think that I can comprehend"

"Do you mean ‘understand’? It's really simple when it's woman and man"

She said she liked the plan, and then she took my hand
We walked along the sunset to a golden land
Acknowledging her woman went well with my man

How do you do? How do you do?
Would you let me rub-a-dub your boog-a-loo?
Track Name: Are You Marlene?
Hello, can I help you?
Yes, I think you can
I've a question to ask you
And please don't think me mad
Take all the time you like
You needn't answer right away
I'm headed straight to bed
At the end of the day

Are you Marlene? Are you Marlene?
This might sound strange but I know you I think
Are you Marlene? Are you Marlene?
You look like the girl I've seen in my dreams

And when I go to sleep
Alone in my sheets
That's when I meet
My darling Marlene

Are you Marlene? Are you Marlene?
This might sound strange but I know you I think
Are you Marlene? Are you Marlene?
You look like the girl I've seen in my dreams
Track Name: Orange Kamell
Orange Kamell says no thing
Walks along free and clear
No destination does not care
Winding path through atmosphere
Track Name: A Song Made the Autumn Warm
In the fall I saw a ribbon in the grass
A stone wall and a root sprouting upward through the cracks
An empty pack of cigarettes buried in the sand
A pickup truck bed like a weathered old man
A tree all gnarled and jagged branches aching to the sky
Humble though it had defeated time

In the fall I wrote a poem
The pages were bare, so bare
Words I put there
And it became warm
And I breathed the air
Up walked a girl with long golden hair

"So,” she said, "The future ends, look backward to the past."
And I said "It's all right, we've done this all before my lass."
Track Name: Dr. Redbird Lovejoy
What a beautiful red bird!

So red it's absurd

Red crystal birdbath towering high above

Too close to the sun, the water's too warm

But a symbol of love, made to bring joy
Track Name: Calling Planet Zeenus
Calling planet Zeenus, please come in

Planet Zeenus, do you read us?

We have been thrown off course
We know not how or why
Our planet left its orbit
Adrift through space and time

The signal is getting thin...

We have been thrown off course
We know not how or why
Our planet left its orbit
Adrift through space and time

If you acknowledge please give a sign
If you acknowledge please give a sign
We fear we will collide
We fear we will collide
Track Name: A Flock of Foul-Mouthed Parrots
Undeniable evidence of previous alien residents
Used as a garden ornament
Here in a far gone day, the pipes of Pan did shrill away
A wanton summons from that hairy gent

Wild rites of ancient nature worship
Wild nights of flying saucer circle

In a field we lay forgotten
Sadly old and rotten
Broken tractor steeple
Over shoveled-out tombs

A flock of foul-mouthed parrots spread the news
Track Name: Around My Neck
By the time Friday hits, my bones'll be broke
They'll be givin’ me fits
Eight hours in the cell, eight hours out in the yard
Swingin' a ten pound sledge and cursin' at god
Another eight in my bed tryin' to get some sleep
I'm six hours in and I ain't closed 'em a wink

I got a golden ball and chain around my neck
If I'm lucky I can cash it in to pay off my debt
Before I die...

I got a good paycheck, a decent life
So why should I complain?
Just keep my head down, stay quiet
I'll be dead in thirty years
Or I'll be dead tomorrow night
Don't give it too much thought
Just keep on movin' down the line

I got a golden ball and chain around my neck
If I'm lucky I can cash it in to pay off my debt
Before I die...
Track Name: Lazer Ray's
If you need me I'll be down at Lazer Ray's
I might be there for a while
I might be there all goddamn day

Yellow, orange, purple, green, it's all the same to me
Just plug me in, just plug me in
Give me a dose of lazer beam

Call me if you want, but call me down at Lazer Ray's
I'll be at the bar drinkin' whisky and wearing shades

If you need me I'll be down at Lazer Ray's
I might be there for a while
I might be there all goddamn day
Track Name: Lt. Redbird Lovejoy
What a beautiful red bird!

So red it's absurd

Red crystal birdbath towering high above

Too close to the sun, the water's too warm

But a symbol of love, made to bring joy
Track Name: Backward Forward Round and Round
Walking backward you can't see
Where you're going
Walking forward you can't see
Where you've gone
Backward, forward, round and round
East to west and up and down
Down
Down
Down
Track Name: Libation Station
Double, double
Hello, yellow
Bubble, bubble
On the kettle

Libation station

Ooooh, aaaaahhh
Track Name: Don the Dapper Dandelion Saw the Scene and Sighed
The silly human sank into a sea of sudsy sand
Don the Dapper Dandelion sighed and shook his head
About it woodland creatures used its face to tell the time
It stared up from the ground, its nose was pointed at the sky

Draw a circle on your hand
A square upon your foot
Draw a circle on the ground
And walk inside it now
Sink down into moistened earth
Slowly fade away
Toes, then legs, then arms, then head
Tilt back to show your face
In the lawn, the circle drawn
You stare up at the sky
A clock, your nose, and shadow shows
Upon your face the time

The dandelion sighed...

Draw a little picture to pass the time
There's no harm in trying
Watch the clock, let seconds tock
They lay there like they're dying
They move too fast they never stop
They lay there like they're dying

The dandelion sighed...
