Is On Loan 04:13
IS ON LOAN Give an inch Give a yard You could take a mile There's only so much pressure one can stand Crack a joke Crack a nut Maybe crack a smile The only judge to face will be your own 'Cause everything we have here is on loan People in a rush on way to work With their deadlines and their fears looking for a chance to win But when the winning game is over and it's time to go to sleep The world goes on as planned Pay a bill Pay your dues You deserve a deal Maybe there's a number you can call Find a love Find a home Follow how you feel It's only temporary then it's gone Enjoy what you can grab, what you can loan People in a rush on way to work With their deadlines and their fears Hoping for a chance to score And some of them will probably worry that they're missing out on something that'll gettem' through the line at heaven's door Things could get much better Gotta lighten' up the load Things could get much better Gotta take A selfless road Things could get much better Gotta lighten' up the load Things could get much better Gotta take A selfless road Things could get much better Gotta lighten' up the load Things could get much better GOTTA LIGHTEN UP THOSE  TOADS! Time eats time And nothing stays the same But time.... Easter ride Easter hay I don't have a clue I never got an answer on the phone But we are here Here and now and this what we do Someday we will clear this safety zone And see everything we have here is on loan Yeah, everything we have here... Everything we have here... IS ON LOAN! Gotta lighten up the load 'cause things would get much better Gotta lighten up the load 'cause things would feel much better Gotta lighten up the toads 'cause things would feel much better

WHEN THE CIRCLE'S BROKEN #2 Continuous chatter from lips gone astray Promises fall to the floor Santa's list is getting longer by the day Catch 22 is for sure Like a garden of eden with guards at the wall It's hard to get inside for a trial You may think that you're through But one thing is true When the circle's broken and the dream slips in Nothing can stand in your way When the circle's broken and reactions clear Know in a heart beat that your fantasy is here. Know in your heart you can break it Well, you know in your heart when to take it Push comes to shove, comes to fear - comes to light Karma goes 'round in your head Live underground, outta mind outta sight Can't even get outta bed But if you follow your dreams like a moth to a flame And burn away the curse of denial You may be quite surprised that you've known all the while When the circle's broken and the dream slips in Nothin' can stand in your way When the circle's broken and reactions clear Know in a heart beat that your fantasy is here. Know in your heart you can break it Well, you know from the start you can take it Got to take any chance to make it Got to take any chance to break it On the range we open wide - shoot us to the other side On the range we open wide - shoot us to the other side When the circle's broken and the dream slips in Nothin' can stand in your way When the circle's broken and reactions clear Know in a heart beat that your fantasy is here. Know in your heart you can break it Well, you know from the start you can take it Got to take any chance to make it Got to take any chance to break it On the range we open wide - shoot us to the other side On the range we open wide - shoot us to the other side On the range we open wide - shoot us to the other side On the range we open wide - shoot us to the other side

TAKE A FLYIN' LEAP Lovers: Silvery illusions from a nerve bending ball of light Romance: Raging sublimations mixed in delicate cups and kites And sages: Bragging double breasted seizures on the mast Selling futuristic presents from the past Like some salad crooked criminal in glass It is said: They say go fool take a flyin’ leap Got a try another angle when the big guy sleeps They say go fool take a flyin’ leap Gotta dump the old cabana for the soul to reap They say go fool take a flyin’ leap Better buy a pair of slippers and recline Moon tax: Waning mumble jumbo quoting lattice surprise so tight Soft cells Rising in a puddle full of rich hungry gods who fight While sages: Dump the angry vessel visions from TV Betting devil innuendo prophesies Bound in riddle stick religions to the tee Don’t you know? They say go fool take a flyin’ leap Got a try another angle when the big guy sleeps They say go fool take a flyin’ leap Gotta dump the old cabana for the soul to reap They say go fool take a flyin’ leap Got a try another angle when the big guy sleeps They say go fool take a flyin’ leap Gotta dump the old cabana for the soul to reap They say go fool take a flyin’ leap Buy a pair of slippers and recline

Singed 02:08
Singed 20 small cigars Like the ones you used to hide from mom Came creepin’ up on to my arm And they burned in hatred at the thought of you Hatred that you caused with your matches But did you know that you’re not immune to death 20 small cigars They won’t forget The pain they felt being melt down to ashes in a tray I could not do this without feeling guilt You are probably sworn to wear the devil in the breeze And as this song begins to close And you light up one for the road (Please say you won’t) 20 small cigars will be Waiting and then you’ll see Just how lucky you are to live So careless and free

Mr. And : Now according to legend, it was the year of The Beatles. The year of The Stones. The year after JFK, when our hero, Smokey Lee Webster made a sincere if not totally left field attempt at selling his fantastical opera, "Botso The Magical Mouse". Now some of you might remember this esoteric little gem. It only ran for one day and requires a crane so enormous, even current technology has yet to figure out how it was constructed. But no matter, perseverance was our Smokey Lee's strong point and... And so here he was at the corner of "Bell-Bob" and Madison Avenue sitting around, waiting to find out what the next move was gonna be when all of a sudden he comes across this matchbox. And there he saw in bright green letters an ad. The ad read : SLIPCODE TECHNOLOGY won't take no for an answer. That's why you're reading us. Our music division is looking for a hip, new Broadway show about a failing writing implement factory that is about to shut down on St. Paddy's Day unless they can come up with a sure, new fire product. Nopa - nopa - nopa -nope - Bing! Well, a little bell went off in Smokey Lee's head and he realized he had written a play like that and he should give these guys a call. Well, he called up SLIPCODE and they gave him an appointment. And there he was in the elevator taking it all the way up top the 83rd floor like I said before. And - and the door opens up and Smokey was so excited he tripped in the waiting room, and he toppled over a stack of "Life" magazines and his hair was on fire and he almost broke his inner tooth. And all of a sudden a mysterious voice came out of nowhere and said, "Ah, Mr. Webster I presume". "Sit down and I'll be right with you." And that's just what Smokey did. He sat down for an hour. Two hours. Three. Maybe three and a half hours passed. He was sittin' there reading "Time", "Life" magazines and just trying to figure out what his next move was gonna be and... All of a sudden he gotta strange buzzing in his head and realized that was the buzzer for him to enter in. "Hi, I'm Mr. Captain Tank", a shadowy figure said behind an abnormally large sized desk. "I'm in charge of making sure that no good Broadway shows go un-noticed and that all our performers have plenty of air to breathe in every show.” "So what have you got Mr. Webster Lee?" "Well", Smokey replied, "I'd like to play you the opening theme to my new fantastical Broadway show”. "It's about a pen." "About a pen!", marveled Mr. Tank. "Prove it!" "Do your worst!" Mr. And: Well, Smokey nervously headed toward the broken piano that was cushioned between two over stuffed knitted plumb trees. And he cracked his neck. And he cracked his knuckles. And electricity shouted out of ears. And a vision of Tesla appeared. And the walls came down. And he decided he would sing this fantastic little opening number and it goes a little like this: A pen - It's green - It writes like an octopus A pen - It's green - you'll see A pen - It's green - It writes like an octopus A pen - It's green - you'll seeeeeeeeeeeee Now who'd believe a pen could write the color of a frog? A pen you see, it's interesting, it eats less than your dog (Arf, arf, arf!) A pen - It's green - It writes like an octafish A pen - It's green - you'll see A pen - It's green - It writes like an octafish A pen - It's green - you'll seeeeeeeeeeeee... "Marvelous Mr. Smokey Weed!" "Just marvelous!" "I've been looking for a song like that for years!" "That really hit the heart strings.” "It was something I've been looking for, for at least six days now." "Perfect, perfect, perfect", said Mr. Tank. Mr. And : Well Smokey Lee just sat there and some tears were coming out of his "ass" - out of his eyes - out of his eyes, keep it clean! And he said to him, "do you have any more Mr. Smokey Lee?" And he said, "look you know I'm still trying to write some more fine lines, and some more intricate - cables that are going over each other and - and people who are talking about other things and..." "I just gotta work in the dialog a little bit." "I gotta make the cable cars work together and get the garbage cans dancin'.” "And I almost have the whole thing constructed.” "All I need is a crane.” "A crane that is so enormous." "So huge." "That's the only thing I need", he said. Mr. Captain Tank said, "what do you need the crane for boy?" Smokey Lee said, "You know I need that crane 'cause I have to drop these huge - these huge condoms into the air and see if they explode." "That's the whole key point of the pen." "The pen has nothing to do with anything." "The pen is just a sideline.” "It's not really what the world really needs." "What the world really needs is these condoms." "Condoms, condoms,condoms,condoms, condoms,condoms,condoms!" "Lots of condoms for little boys and girls everywhere." "Gotta protect the nuns”. "Gotta protect the priests”. "Gotta protect the cable car people." "Gotta protect the electricians." "Everybody needs a condom.” "Ya gotta wear them on your feet." "Ya gotta wear them on your fingers." "It's very good - it's very therapeutic for your finger here - see when you get this swelling?" Mr. And : Well, Smokey went on for a half an hour. Meanwhile, Captain Tank had already left and his secretary was under the table, and you know... And then by the time he figured out there was nobody there well, our Smokey Lee finally retreated in disappointment and he went into the elevator and he decided to kill himself and that was it.

THAT'S JUST FINE WITH ME Fartin' around - just me and my eyes Painting a face with pixels Pinching the seams So don't wait up for me I'm too far gone I'm in the screen In your reality I'm wasting time But that's just fine with me Painting a sound - just me and my ears Plunking away in rhythm Hammering keys So don't wait up for me I can't explain what's in my brain In your reality, I'm making noise But that's just fine with me It's alright because i could do this all day (crowd shouts: 'YOU DO DO IT ALL DAY!") So don't wait up for me A party swing is not my thing In your reality I'm missing out But that's just fine with me

DRIVING ON THE LEFT SIDE If you always take a crash every time you speak Every time you seek to be understood... Know you’re not alone when the fear strikes home When the deepest cut spares the weakest bone Some say truck on faith And your life line will find meaning So i'm driving on the left side Looking for the sunshine in the rain Driving on the left side Blinded by the headlights again In hopes to find a friend Now some call me a fool ‘cause they disagree 'Cause they do not share my philosophies But I will stand behind my faults Encrypting all the thoughts that are real to me You know that I won't break I have to trust my feelings So i'm driving on the left side Looking for the sunshine in the rain Driving on the left side Blinded by the headlights again Driving on the left side... Is it all in vain? To find the perfect lane (to find the perfect friend) You know that I won't break I have to trust my feelings So I'm driving on the left side Looking for the sunshine in the rain Driving on the left side Blinded by the headlights again I'm just driving on the left side Is it all in vain? Perhaps we're all the same Perhaps we're all the same Or maybe I'm insane?
