Track Name: Elegant Train
I recall the dream
of living in an elegant train

I know longer walks
But I recall the dream
of living in an elegant train

I don't run a rosey road
that melts yellow
But I recall the dream
of living in an elegant train

I know longer walks
But I recall the dream
of living in an elegant train

I don't run a roller
over hills and meadows

Now I'm diving into a mint cloud
Now I'm diving into a mint cloud

And you know
that it went even where no other
could go

I don't run a rosey road
that melts yellow

And you know
that it went even where no other
could go

I don't run a roller
over hills and meadows

Now I'm diving into a mint cloud
Now I'm diving into a mint cloud
Track Name: Key Surfano
I was seated
1, 2, 3, 6
ALIEN: "I want to regulate
your Key Surfano
E, Con, 2, K"

I didn't have to wait
The place was shave
And when the lights came down
from the blue sky
I prayed

I was an eagle
See how he how I can see
I could pitch your earring a Nudi moto
See photos
I could pitch it in the sea
Oh zero no
I could pitch it in the sea
Oh zero no
Track Name: Ariel
Money and you're an Ariel
Not enough
And you're an Itchy Harold

Setting is crimson pheasant approaching
Maybe you're on a farm
A dog is licking you're arms

Spend is there in your hollow arms
Yeah
Now it is all very clear today

Money and you're an Ariel
Not enough
And you're an Itchy Harold

Money and you're an Ariel
Track Name: Helicopter Skull
When you come alone
Will you leave a tape on
That says you're not at home

When my Earth to your Sky hangs on
And I feel it hanging on
It's like the herb in your head

Helicopter Skull sees the lake
beyond the trees and through the field
and the Amethyst Caves
Track Name: Indian Rug
You don't know
what you're feeling yet

Feel it rushing
through your blood
and your veins
and your head

It's a rush like death

Splashed across the universe
spilled into space
splashed on the sun

I'm feeling visionary
Color perception

It doesn't matter if it's a Jack
or a King
or a Spade

Just like an Indian rug
it sings a song about
the story it shows

I'm painted out of flesh and bone
and I can tell you how it feels
to be sewn
and torn and resewn
Track Name: Nature Boy Elvis
Nature Boy Elvis said
"There is honor in men
I was in the Vikings
And I towed a ship"

Snakes and bugs in my bed
When somebody left
Olive butter, sand and bread

You were all but Jesus back then
With the sand and the band around the boat
In the Dead Sea leaking a red round note
Or is it water on the road

Call you Pepperhead
Make you dead
Call you Ken
You've got your women all untied
They got birds from their heads
Track Name: Calamity Jane
No one's playing the dangerous games
You see the snow is the summer rain
Was it Alice at the last parade
or Calamity Jane

She's the kind of girl with charge in her head
About the tight she took the rebound
Was it Mary not quite addressed
or Calamity Jane

With the kind of look that makes you dead
Hey you're a pine living in the ground
Was it Lesley in an Ariel dress
or Calamity Jane

No one's playing the dangerous games
You see the snow is the summer rain
Was it Alice at the last parade
or Calamity Jane
Track Name: Tricolate
When I send thought waves
I'll be hearing everybody say
"Jesus saves!"

When I hear you say
I drove my car around the Crystal Lake
I feel the coast tricolate
I feel a ghost when it's getting late

When I see Dog's Head
He'll be reeling in a bottle of J
But he's OK
