Radio Free Europe
Beside yourself if radio's gonna stay.
Reason: it could polish up the grey.
Put that put that put that up your wall
That this isn't country at all

Raving station beside yourself

Keep me out of country in the word
Deal the porch is leading us absurd.
Push that push that push that to the hull
That this isn't nothing at all.

Straight off the boat where to go?
Calling on in transit calling on in transit
Radio Free Europe, radio...

Beside defying media too fast
Instead of pushing palaces to fall
Put that, put that, put that before all
That this isn't fortunate at all

Raving station, beside yourself
Calling on in transit, calling on in transit
Radio Free Europe, radio...

Decide yourself, calling all of the medias too fast

Keep me out of country in the word
Disappoint is into us absurd

Straight off the boat, where to go?
Calling on in transit, calling on in transit

Gardening At Night
I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change.
Though all the feelings that broke through that door just didn't seem to be too real.
The yard is nothing but a fence, the sun just hurts my eyes somewhere.
It must be time for penitence. Gardening at night is never where.
Gardening at night. Gardening at night. Gardening at night.

The neighbors go to bed at ten.
Call the prayer line for a change.
The charge is changing every month.
They said it couldn't be arranged.

We ankled up the garbage sound, but they were busy in the rows.
We fell up, not to see the sun, gardening at night just didn't grow.
I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change.
Though all the feelings that broke through that door just didn't seem to be too real.
Gardening at night. Gardening at night. Gardening at night

Your sister said that you're too young.
They should know they've been there twice.
The call was 2 and 51.
They said it couldn't be arranged.

I see your money on the floor, I felt the pocket change.
Though all the feelings that broke through that door just didn't seem to be too real.
We ankled up the garbage sound, but they were busy in the rows.
We fell up not to see the sun, gardening at night just didn't grow.
Gardening at night. Gardening at night. Gardening at nightback to top
Talk About The Passion
Empty prayer, empty mouths, combien reaction
Empty prayer, empty mouths, talk about the passion
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world

Talk about the passion
Talk about the passion

Empty prayer, empty mouths, combien reaction
Empty prayer, empty mouths, talk about the passion
Combien, combien, combien de temps?

Not everyone can carry the weight of the world
Not everyone can carry the weight of the world
Combien, combien, combien de temps?

Talk about the passion

So. Central Rain
Did you never call? I waited for your call
These rivers of suggestion are driving me away
The trees will bend, the cities wash away
The city on the river there is a girl without a dream

I'm sorry

Eastern to Mountain, third party call, the lines are down
The wise man built his words upon the rocks
But I'm not bound to follow suit
The trees will bend, the conversation's dimmed
Go build yourself another home, this choice isn't mine

Did you never call? I waited for your call
These rivers of suggestion are driving me away
The ocean sang, the conversation's dimmed
Go build yourself another dream, this choice isn't mineback to top
(Donīt Go Back To) Rockville
Looking at your watch a third time waiting in the station for a bus
Going to a place that's far, so far away and if that's not enough
Going where nobody says hello, they don't talk to anybody they don't know
You'll wind up in some factory that's full time filth and nowhere left to go
Walk home to an empty house, sit around all by yourself
I know it might sound strange, but I believe
You'll be coming back before too long

Don't go back to Rockville
And waste another year

At night I drink myself to sleep and pretend
I don't care if you're not here with me
'Cause it's so much easier to handle
All my problems if I'm too far out to sea
But something better happen soon

Or it's gonna be too late to bring you back

It's not as though I really need you
If you were here I'd only bleed you
But everybody else in town only wants to bring you down and
That's not how it ought to be
I know it might sound strange, but I believe
You'll be coming back before too longback to top
Canīt Get There From Here
When the world is a monster
Bad to swallow you whole
Kick the clay that holds the teeth in
Throw your trolls out the door
If you're needing inspiration
Philomath is where I go by dawn
Lawyer Jeff he knows the lowdown
He's mighty bad to visit home

I've been there I know the way
(Can't get there from here)

I've been there I know the way
(Can't get there from here)

I've been there I know the way
(Can't get there from here)

I've been there I know the way

When your hands are feeling empty
Stick head jumpin off the ground, 'round
Tris is sure to shirr the deers out
Brother Ray can sing my song

I've been there I know the way
(Can't get there from here)

I've been there I know the way
(Can't get there from here)

I've been there I know the way
(Can't get there from here)

I've been there I know the way

Hands down, Calechee bound
Landlocked kiss the ground
Dirt of seven continents going round and round
Go on ahead Mr. Citywide hypnotized, suit and tied
Gentlemen, testify

If your world is a monster
Bad to swallow you whole
Philomath they know the lowdown
Throw your trolls out the door

I've been there I know the way
(Can't get there from here)

I've been there I know the way
(Can't get there from here)

I've been there I know the way
(Can't get there from here)

I've been there I know the way

Thank you, Ray.back to top
Driver 8
The walls are built up, stone by stone,
the fields divided one by one.
And the train conductor says
"Take a break Driver 8, Driver 8 take a break
We've been on this shift too long"

And the train conductor says
"Take a break Driver 8, Driver 8 take a break
We can reach our destination, but we're still a ways away"

I saw a treehouse on the outskirts of the farm.
The power lines have floaters so the airplanes won't get snagged.
Bells are ringing through the town again,
Children look up, all they hear is sky-blue, bells ringing

And the train conductor says
"Take a break Driver 8, Driver 8 take a break
We can reach our destination, but we're still a ways away"

Way to shield the hated heat.
Way to put myself to sleep.
Way to shield the hated heat.
Way to put myself, my children to sleep.

He piloted this song in a plane like that one.
She is selling faith on the Go Tell crusade.
Locomotive 8, Southern Crescent, hear the bells ring again.
Field to weed is stricken thin

And the train conductor says
"Take a break Driver 8, Driver 8 take a break
We've been on this shift too long."
And the train conductor says
"Take a break Driver 8, Driver 8 take a break
We can reach our destination, but we're still a ways away"back to top
Romance
Nations call
Par-parallels
Neighbors call
All in all in all in all in all

That's worth saving up for
Put our heads down on the chest
Mustn't even race for rest
Easy come, easy go

Easy come
Easy go
Easy come
Easy go

Stares conceal
Par-parallels
Neigh-neighbors call
All in all in all in all in all

That's worth saving up for
Put our heads down on the chest
Mustn't even race for rest
Easy come, easy go

Easy come
Easy go

Chance is yours
And call the shot
Even in a parking lot
With one romance
One romance

Easy come

Late at night nations fall
All in all in all in all in all

Fall On Me
There's a problem, feathers iron
Bargain buildings, weights and pullyes
Feathers hit the ground before the weight can leave the air
Buy the sky and sell the sky and tell the sky and tell the sky

Don't fall on me (What is it up in the air for) (It's gonna fall)
Fall on me (If it's there for long) (It's gonna fall)
Fall on me (It's over it's over me) (It's gonna fall)

There's the progress we have found (when the rain)
A way to talk around the problem (when the children reign)
Building towered foresight (keep your conscience in the dark)
isn't anything at all (melt the statues in the park)
Buy the sky and sell the sky and bleed the sky and tell the sky

Don't fall on me (What is it up in the air for) (It's gonna fall)
Fall on me (If it's there for long) (It's gonna fall)
Fall on me (It's over it's over me) (It's gonna fall)
Don't fall on me

Well I could keep it above
But then it wouldn't be sky anymore
So if I send it to you you've got to promise to keep it whole

Buy the sky and sell the sky and lift your arms up to the sky
And ask the sky and ask the sky

Don't fall on me (What is it up in the air for) (It's gonna fall)
Fall on me (If it's there for long) (It's gonna fall)
Fall on me (It's over it's over me) (It's gonna fall)

The One I Love
This one goes out to the one I love
This one goes out to the one I've left behind
A simple prop to occupy my time
This one goes out to the one I love

Fire !!she's comin down on her own now!!

This one goes out to the one I love
This one goes out to the one I've left behind
Another prop has occupied my time
This one goes out to the one I loveback to top
Finest Worksong
The time to rise has been engaged
You're better best to rearrange
I'm talking here to me alone
I listen to the finest worksong
Your finest hour
Your finest hour

Another chance has been engaged
To throw Thoreau and rearrange
You are following this time
I beg you not beg to rhyme (blow your horn)
Your finest hour (blow your horn)
Your finest hour

Take your instinct by the reins
Your better best to rearrange
What we want and what we need
Has been confused been confused (blow your horn)
Your finest hour (blow your horn)
Your finest hour (blow your horn)
Your finest hour (blow your horn)
Your finest hour

Take your instinct by the reins
Your better best to rearrange
What we want and what we need
Has been confused been confused (blow your horn)

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds & snakes, an
aeroplane, and Lenny Bruce is not afraid.

Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn, world serves it's own
needs, dummy serve your own needs, feed it off in aux speed, grunt,
no strenth, a latter starts to clatter with fear, fight, down height,
wire in a fire, representing 7 games, and a government for hire at a
combat site, left of west is comming in a hurry with the furries
breathing down, your, neck, team by team reporters baffled, trumped,
tethered, cropped, look at that low playing, fine, then, ut oh, over
flow, population common food, but it'll do, save yourself, serve
yourself, world serves it's own needs listen to your heart bleed,
dummy with a rapture in the revered in the right, right, you vitriolic,
patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it,
It's the end of the world as we know it,
It's the end of the world as we know it,
And i feel fine.

6 O'clock, TV hour, don't get cought in foreign towers, slash and burn,
return, listen to yourself churn, locking in, uniforming, book burning,
blood letting, every motive escalate, automotive incinerate, light a
candle, light a votive, step down, step down, watch your heel crush,
crushed, ut oh, this means, no fear, cavalier, renegade, stear clear, a
tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies, offer me solutions and
offer me alternatives and i, decline.

It's the end of the world as we know it,
It's the end of the world as we know it,
It's the end of the world as we know it, (it's time i had some time alone)
And i feel fine.

I feel fine

(repeat chorus)

The other night i dreampt of knives, continental drift divide,
mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein, Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny
Bruce and Lester Bangs, birthday party, cheesecake, jelly beam, boom,
you symbiotic, patriotic, slam, foot, neck, right?, right.

(repeat chorus x3)
