Track Name: Wildebeest Song
to know that your deal is to wind up someone's meal
and you can't run those blues away
and without a word, you'll get taken from your herd
you're lucky to live out the day

underneath the star
you'll go far
when you feel alone
and you're bone
is there another chance to take this cosmic dance?
you won't know 'til it's shown.

next time you're a man, and you've given all you can
try to leave your big mark on the earth
pretty soon you'll get stripped, and you'll find the story's flipped
when the mystics determine your worth

are you a Spector or are you a ghost?
do you feel hectored when you come to boast?
when you built the wall of sound,
and you dragged it to the ground,
did you remember the African coast?

underneath the star
you'll go far
when you feel alone
and you're bone
is there another chance to take this cosmic dance?
you won't know 'til it's shown
and when you die in jail and find you've come to fail
who knows which way you're blown?
Track Name: Understanding Song
well can you open the door up?
well can you open the door?
don't let me try and convince you
don't let me die on the floor

i am a man, this is my life
this is my life, understand
and if you're alright, i will paint you
live together and fight to death
live alone, fight myself instead

she says "my stomach's exploding"
she says "my life is a gourd"
she says "i'm turning the tables"
she says "i'll walk out the door"

please understand, when i hurt you
i'm just a man, understand
i'm just afraid, and i'm foolish
live together and fight to death
if i lived alone i'd fight myself instead!
Track Name: It's the Real Thing!
so i got home without an issue
i must have floated past that door
i had some news to tell my family
now i don't have them anymore

when i looked back, stood at ground level
there was standing a man so small
his knee was propping the front gate open
i didn't know him, not at all
he motioned upstairs, dissolved the question
his lips were twisting, i heard no sound
and it was only half a minute
before his partner came around

he stunk of menace, came on so slowly
he flashed his knife out to scratch me clean
my jaw did circles, swam up my stomach
because i knew where my family'd been
i dove under, found the cellar
i let my knees down with a groan
before i knew it, it was the next day
and from that moment i was alone.

put it in orbit
gas it to the moon
cut up the sorbet
and it is a black suit and a black tie
well i don't ask for answers
it's "this and that"
prepared for the final assault
in preventing secretion
i understand perfectly well
why would you?

but here i am
here i am
don't need them
don't need them

getting snuggly with my dog
it's the real thing!
getting snuggly with my dog
it's the real thing!
