Track Name: Oriental Jar
I dropped the old coin too hard
in the Oriental Jar
Now a Buddah’s coming at me
Large!

I’ll tell you what can go to your head
Some structures of electrical plants

And a circus tent that catches the wind
Yeah, it was animated…
Track Name: New Silver Age
My hands become tracered arrows
Telephone is a philm in upper rayz
You know time never changes…

Silver-filled Father’s eyes
His head back slow
He’s smiling…

Stop
Check your watch
For some of you it might have stopped
Or time just got lost!

We’re in a new age of silver
Something’s coming coming through in upper rayz
You know time never changes…

Silver-filled Father’s eyes
His head back slow
He’s smiling…

Stop
Check your watch
For some of you it might have stopped
Or time just got lost!
Track Name: God Of Rain
You know the Dragon
is the God of Rain
He made Cherry blossoms
turn into snow white storks

They were flying when they heard a war…

You know the Dragon
is the God of Rain
He made Cherry blossoms
turn into snow white storks

They were flying when they heard a war…

You know Ron
he’s into kerosene
He made merry autumns
turn into a foam ark…
Track Name: Kooper Pills
I’m thinking back to ’88
That’s when I took flight
Then ’89 went by with a smile…

Then to ’90 mind logged on
to something making my friends
feel real long

We were logging onto higher times
We watched them flying by with a smile

Then in ’95 life was on the rise
I remember it with a wider smile

We’re logging on to higher times
We’re logging on to higher times

I’m thinking back to ’88
That’s when I took flight
Then ’89 went by with a smile

Kooper Pills/Right on time!
Kooper Pills/Right on time!
Kooper Pills/Right on time!
Track Name: (26%) Shining Bread
Star Life on the bus
that takes us to our classes and work
And when you get on
you know that past days are gone

Star Flight on the bus
that takes us to a Supernova
The new plan is on
but the crash vents are gone!

And then you take that tight tight explosion
I guess we’ll see you when your mind gets home
Then you see that
Life is the chemicals, man…

Once while on the bus
I saw the recipe for us
Written on some old man’s notes
I could feel it turn my eyes to gold

Once you’re on the bus
you feel that gravity give up
You leave your only lonely road
for places you could never have known

And then you take that tight tight explosion
I guess we’ll see you when your mind gets home
Then you see that
Life is the chemicals, man
Track Name: At The Party
Monday on my way to work
Scenes are bubbling to the surface
It’s no longer just a far away party
Now my life is like a headline story

We were smoking California cigars in the back yard
I don’t remember much after that…

I don’t remember what we did with the candles
But I remember really making Champagne
I put my whiskey in a wine glass
and called it champagne

He put his whiskey in a wine glass and called it champagne!

We were smoking California cigars in the back yard
I don’t remember much after that…

You stepped into the cloud around me
Stepped into my cloud of sparks
Did you hear my lighter or watch
Sometimes I light it up in the dark

We were smoking California cigars in the back yard
I don’t remember much after that…

Monday on my way to work
Scenes are bubbling to the surface
Scenes are bubbling to the surface
Track Name: Where You Buy Your Days
I was up late
and I was thinking…
Jewels, Silver and Gold
I’d been to see the man who has parks
and he was very old

He said, “I’ve got days.
Remember running with your younger friends.
And, I’ve got your days.
Summer’s coming
and I want in it.”

I was up late
and I was thinking…
Jewels, Silver and Gold
I’d been to see the man who has parks
and he was very old

He said, “ I’ve got that day.
Remember someone.
Feel their feel their other hand!
I’ve got that day.
Tell me something if you want in it.”

I was up late
and I was thinking…
Jewels, Silver and Gold
I’d been to see the man who has parks
and he was very old…
Track Name: M.O.D.A. (machine of defensive action)
MODA, God, Robot Mother
I’m asking this of you because
your vast technology
will be rolling on
long after I am gone

Unless you take my mind
Refine it
Then fill my body with elastic glue
And then replace my organs
with permanent organs
Yesterday, I wasn’t like you...

MODA, God, you Soldier Trucker
what will happen in your future war
Will this be the time I should come alive
to cover while you’re moving the bomb

Now I’m seeing through MODA eyes
Things are flashing like lights inside me
Now this is useful during serious wars
‘cause I can be up above them

MODA, God, you Soldier Trucker
what will happen during Nuclear war
Will this be the time I should come alive
to cover while you’re moving the bomb
