Track Name: So Inside
Oh how I knew it, you'd do it
The blood's all around me
My life's a metal drop that won't ever stop
How could they take you and break you?
The blood's all around me
How could you take it in your hands to get dropped?
I miss you
I miss your sweet, sweet smile
Are you now alive now and free?
It's so inside that I was somebody's mother.

Why can't you repeat or threepeat
And rush in around me?
I can't believe I'll never see you again!
You couldn't chew it and screw it
Like all those around you
It always hit you as you came round the bend
I love you
You know I'll love you always
No matter what you did to me
Your suicide has made my universe so lonely
And I can't hide, I know you wanted them to blame me
And oh the guilt
And oh the guilt
Track Name: You Don't Talk Circles
sails out, starboard
shore leave, discord
they will stand near
i won't be here and

you don't talk circles
baby's in blue
i will go to Kenya, find something new

prepare your shoes
nose in the news
eyeline, key card
it shouldn't be this hard!

what good would that do?
i'd do it if i knew
i promise to leave you this way

love waits for the summer solstice
now i'm working for inside voices and

time moves so fast
slips out of our grasp
we hold the light

you don't talk circles
i'm in the sand
and you don't know this, but i have said a lot
Track Name: Concerto for Elmer Fudd ("That Dang Rabbit")
lonely, lonely, to be a villain is to be alone
lonely nights give way to lonely mornings by the phone
daddy taught me to carve myself a place in society
the path to power, don't matter if you step on somebody

but oh, oh, every time i get some time alone, oh
that dang rabbit
spoiled all my best laid plans
but dang nabbit!
i'll have to start again
and i only have so many years

i go out walkin'
and everybody's talkin'
and everybody's squawkin'
they'll laugh at me so 'til i've caught him!
i go out to the stable
where everybody's able
they live like in a fable
then something cops out and i've lost him!

people ask me why i'm nasty
they don't know me, they can't see me
didn't plan it, it's been part of
cartoon planet since the start of

time! time, every time i get some time that's mine, mine
that dang rabbit
spoiled all my best laid plans
but dang nabbit!
i'll have to start again
and i only have so many years
Track Name: Ghost Pal
creepy crawly, the white man's folly
i heard a detuned piano
saw a spectral light show
hope is fading, ghosts are waiting
sitting in the armchair
i felt a blast of cold air

well i saw the white noise
had a tingling brain
things are not the same
picking up the cries
and the wails of pain
they must have died in vain

if the spirit is tormented, tragic
the pale reflects the moon
then the story's about eerie magic
the soul was snatched too soon

misty mornings, ghost recordings
made the layers haunted
everything i wanted
hope is fading, ghosts are waiting
everywhere that i go
i need to keep my eyes low

well the mystery head
doesn't know he's dead
but he'll find out soon
tingling buzz
got an eye of fuzz
i wouldn't go in that room

if i were you
here's what i'd do
i'd hide in that hall pressed against the wall
but that's not me
i can't help but see
the melancholy face with its transient grace
yeah i could run
but i can't hide
and i know i'll go inside where the dark abide
and hear what they confide
Track Name: White Hole
Rolling gong strike once more, two times
Rolling gong strike once more, two times
I have melted into everything
Oh sky
Oh hole

Funny to coast along, feed the poor, steep line
Watching the cars go on, oh design
There's a window to another world
Oh sky
Oh hole
Track Name: Space Race
Well he's a cat named Reeve
And he looks like a Steve
But that's what he don't want you to know
Well you could wring his neck
You could cancel his check
But you won't make him leave his home
(Well there's one way)
That's if you turn the mountain he lives on into a bass guitar
Shake the state afar
They'll be walking in soggy clothes

I can hear it
I don't know if I see it
I don't know where my eyes went

Lodged in Erik's hair
Are the keys to his lair
And best luck to you prying them forth
If he's in outer space
He will run you a race
Make you cough out for all that you're worth
Aw, the chicken is brown
I held him upside down
There's another way
We're gonna chew him up into pulp

The chicken's in a tree and it can't get out
The chicken's in a tree and it can't get out
The chicken's in a tree and you can't get it out
We'll have to take a hammer to his eye.
Track Name: I Don't Know
there is a road that i can see
oh let it run a train on me
you do it wrong and then you do it right
i'm so happy when goes off the light
and fade into the night
let me hold you tight

and here comes a new day
when i like it it seems
that there's no weight in my body
and no weight in my dreams

and ruin poses this surprise
i can't read the fear that's in your eyes
oh don't let them in, they'll do me in

i can't help what i'm feeling
i can feel what you mean
i guess that someone is calling
oh it rang from a dream

sunlight rectifies it
i won't criticize it now
cause i don't know

sunlight rectifies it
i won't criticize it now
cause i don't know
Track Name: Actress
Spent the night with your favorite actress
And she lies in white
"You don't know that you're my light!"
Leave her home, go to the doctor
She knows the way!
And I'm sure he'll make your day.

See your movies
How they move me

How I'd like to see you there!
Nobody's out by the sea and
Creep in bed, or stay up instead

Light the lights, go to the auction
And put her for rent
Though you know it's old and bent
Leave her alone, leave her to sorrow
It's all in her hair
Watch her fade into the air

How I'd like to see you there!
Nobody's out by the seaside
Creep in bed, or stay up instead.
Track Name: Brian Wilson
Brian Wilson walking through the hall
Mixed up answers, shuffling eyelids
He's in the kitchen to take a call
Playing mind-games, clouding brainwaves.
Driving to Santa Monica pier
This elation, dissipation
He's been counting the hours and years
Won't release it 'til it's perfect.

You can hide out from the world
But it will catch you soon
Pin a girl on your dream
Make her play your team
She'll hold you tightly
She'll bear you slightly
But you're still you and the moon is still the moon

Sylvester Stewart played it sly and got stoned!
He can make it but he can't fake it
He had to go on his way alone
If you cross them, you have lost them.

And you can hide out from the world
But it will find you soon
You again with the stuff
Is it ever enough
To sing it that much stronger?
To stay up longer
When you're still you and the moon is still the moon

And maybe sometime you
Will find that you're Syd Barrett
And you've made so sure
There can be no cure
You turn your back on them
You play with oxygen
You thought they'd need you but they leave you
You're in a crisis, that's how life is
You're still you and the moon is on the loom
Make it soon.
Track Name: Bernadette
You know it's not even funny
You've such a beautiful body
Why can't you make it work for you?
Windows breaking the rain
Try to sleep off the pain
In bed no one can hurt you

Now we don't know what goes by
And I don't have a third eye
I can't see the fates of the mountains
But I'd build walls around them
Although we can not see
I'll give all I can be
And I'll always love you

Trust I watch you
Know I want to
And you'll see that I have the best things in mind for you

Windows breaking the hale
Sleep alone with a pail
When silver beasts desert you there
Try to rise on some talking
Meet me there where we're walking
And brilliant light shines from your hair

Now I don't know the first thing about love
But what we have I'm proud of
And I should never ask you to save me
But we could save a baby
Although it's hard to say
When we could go away
I promise I'll love you
Track Name: All Right
They took you up and shook you down
The letter came through the door next time around
I have it, don't close the safe and lock us out
If you did we'd stand outside and have to shout
And there's a, a sticky past to be unearthed
I'd help you but time is slow and I've been cursed
Prepare the, the tumbling walls that held the saints
But they don't have any answers to your complaints
Now see here

No one's bad
They're all trying
They're just asking
Here
No one's bad
They're just lying

I worked three days
And stopped that night
You know I came close
Nearly lost my sight
Make yourself numb
But you won't dull the bite
You gotta hang close
You gotta hang tight
And it's alright
It's alright
It's alright
It's outtasight!

They took you up and shook you down
The letter came through the door next time around
I have it, don't close the safe and lock us out
If you did we'd stand outside and have to shout
And there's a, a sticky past to be unearthed
I'd help you but time is slow and I've been cursed
Prepare the, the tumbling walls that held the saints
But they don't have any answers to your complaints
Now see here

No one's bad
They're all trying
They're just asking
Here
No one's bad
They're just lying
Track Name: Wish I Was Someone Else
Sleep belongs to the weary
And it wears me to sit so stoned and bleary
My soul is my garden
And my crops have dried
My soul is a chamber of echoing pride
I wish I'd remember
And use all my soul to turn the tide

Though I'm weak and boring
Will she still want me in the morning?
My love is the arrow that punctured my heart
It aches to my marrow, makes it so hard to start
I wish for December
It's what I remember
At Christmas time everyone knows their part

Wish I was someone else (Wish it was '65)
I wish I had a lion's mane (Wish it was '65)
Wish I could end my pain (I wish I felt alive)
Right now all my hope is gone
Dull aching's taken all my fun
And here I am on my island with my thoughts

Now is there a secret?
Does anyone know?
Does it lie in a leaflet?
Does it fall with the snow?
I wish I could find it
So I could deny it
And line my excuses in a row

Wish I could know my dreams (I wish I'd go insane)
Wish I would not lose steam (I wish I'd go insane)
I wish I knew who to be (I wish I had your brain)
Right now all my hope is gone
Cause everyone's with everyone
And here I am on my island with my thoughts

And I would plead, "please, how could this happen to me?"
And worst of all the nightmare never comes
But these are dark days
And everyone eventually pays
The war's have got us reaching for our guns

Now and again
I start to feel that I'm alone
But your body's near me
And your ears can hear me
As your sprit bends me
And your fingers mend me
And I have to be glad I have a home
