Track Name: thank you for coming round here
thank you for coming round here
you make me feel i'm alive and i can handle my fears
thank you for coming round here
thank you for coming round here
you make me feel i'm alive and i can handle all the fears inside
thank you for coming round here
i was down but came around when were here
i was down but came around when were here
thank you for coming round here
Track Name: teach me to win
I walk around in confusion
i never make it so
the 5 senses around my head
always let me know
its a slight contradiction
always a cruel game
and with slight contradictions
i think ill be OK.
it didn't work for my parents to give it up for the team.
it didn't work for the hippies they couldn't stay very clean.
and with slight trepidation i came into this world.
and if i hadn't been lucky , i wouldn't have gotten the girl.

I'm all mixed up, what has happened to me.
Ive been set up, i just want to be free.
oh no i cant explain the condition I'm in.
educate or elevate, teach me to win.

now I'm reaching for glory as i turn on the big game.
i never fear or i worry there's always someone to blame.
it's a matter of self preservation, living up to the ideal,
and though i have no conviction i try to numb what i feel.
Track Name: kona beach hawaii
I’m Mr sunshine, look upon my face
My wife is waiting to be taken to the better place
Not me cause i'm content. Got a uzzi in the closet
and a knife in the cabinet.

Everyday when I go outside I watch people in the streets and the junkies try to hide
Not very hungry but its lunch time
Smoke another cigarette waiting in the coffee line

Have a smoke, meet you at the back door
Lifting boxes off the warehouse floor.
Motivating seminar motivated me
Hanging in my locker is a picture of Hawaii

One day ill make it there
Hanging on the beach the wind in my hair
Girl by my side Annette Funicelli
Oil on my back lying on my belly
Now the boss says new truckload
Has be loaded by a quarter to four
Wonder what its like to be so free
Surfing on the waves of Kona Beach Hawaii

Hey you! it's a safety issue. Steel toed boots or your gonna need a tissue
Worker comp wont pay your rent if you don’t know procedure and your broken and your bent

Everyday when I go outside I watch people in the streets and the junkies try to hide
Not very hungry but its lunch time
Smoke another cigarette waiting in the coffee line
Track Name: dont forget
You didn’t tell me you loved me so how was I supposed to know
I didn’t think you thought of me you wrote my name in the snow
I said id pay for the damage I did to your car
you said you came but your purse was left back at the bar
you told me once but I seemed to forgot what you said
just make sure that you call me
don’t forget
your friend lied when she told me you changed how you feel
in my car parked outside I fell asleep at the wheel
I said id pay you ll be cashing my cheque next week
you said your tired and you need to get off of your feet
I made you angry I can tell from the message you left
just make sure that you call me
don’t forget
Track Name: the janitor
I'm the janitor
I'm here to clean the floors
ill make it clean till my back is sore
I could of been
elected president
but opportunity had come and went
so i spend my days inside my mind so devious and out of line
with society and the four food groups the dating scene not in the loop
no eye contact given to me no friendly rides offered to me I'm just someone you don't know no one knows where i have to go
so don't offer me the extra earl grey tea don't make it complicated
the elevator, you could of waited...
no one comes when i get sick
my birthdays here but there are no gifts
my girlfriend we never fight
i watch her from the window light
my telescope has become my eyes my window shade is my disguise
i watch you take off your shirt i watch you take off your skirt
please don't call security your secrets all but safe with me
I'm not a tom dick or harry
look at me I'm not so scary..
Track Name: odd and peculiar
Just cause u see it doesn't mean that u can feel it
I'm my eyes you are special to me
odd and peculiar that's what were called
romeo and Julia late for the ball
so they laugh when they see us walking hand in hand its plain to see
they don't see what i see no they don't understand you and me
But were here as a examples of How love can and should be
peculiar and odd is all they ever see....
odd and peculiar out holding hands
they laugh at us when they pass on by
they don’t understand
they don’t see how you make my life feel like its now complete
Peculiar and odd walking down the street ...
Track Name: textu
Something about u tells me Im in for a lot of heart ache, you turn away when you say all the events of the day
your nerves a jitter when your checking your twitter but you haven't got a thing on your mind when the topic turns to mine
cold and hard when your dealing the cards of love always ending up in endless debate
your friends are quiet with there a coven of silence yah
id try to text you but id only perplex you
barefoot on glass such a pain in the ass you are
you don't acknowledge my existence today
the phone is ringing and find you are leaving the room
a private call on the phone and I am left all alone
id try to text you but id only perplex you ya
Track Name: freefall
Random acts of interrogation ,
secret signs from the female nation
power plays of the submissive kind
now one suspects that you re out of your mind
in the car you you cause a scene
the birds have picked the body clean,
no consciousness, no skill she lacks
no stone unturned when she attacks
free fall
no one predicted a free for all

you hate work and the president
they look to you where has the money went
3 lanes of traffic moving slow
where has the year gone, your getting old

foods no good so you stand in line
well get together another time
right now you cant be late you start to panic your wife is late
Track Name: only a fool would believe
i pray to increase my insanity
for the madness acquired came from you
no stability left in the world for me
just a slave to mercy's of your will
a fool believes only you
while the rest of the world just shakes their head
a madman loses free will after hes been taken to your bed
only a fool would believe
all the things you've said and done
only a fool would believe
in all this life your the only one
only a fool would believe
i pray to increase all the sanity
that could be invoked to hide their souls
anything less is calamity
the thieving of you is not my goal
and maybe i say only nothing
leading to places of nowhere
but points the way to everything
a madman needs when you are near
only a fool would believe
all the things you've said and done
only a fool would believe
in all this life your the only one
only a fool would believe
Track Name: girl with the green hair
(you are the girl )with the knee boots and the red tattoo and the green hair
you live down my street and i see you almost everyday
on your bicycle riding right pass me in the pouring rain
(and you say) move it or lose it get out of my way
(and you say) move it or lose it get out of my way
with the knee boots and the red tattoo and the green hair
(you are the girl )with the knee boots and the red tattoo and the green hair
at the bakery i have followed you secretly
standing in the line i see red tattoo on your sexy spine
(and you say) move it or lose it get out of my way
(and you say) move it or lose it get out of my way
give me a tiger draw it on my back
give me a dragon make it attack
give me a snake baby i don't care
its all for the the girl with the green hair
