Track Name: Sweet Ghost
Well I don't want to be alone,
and I faked an emergency so you'd call me, I know.
It's not like I am only crying wolf,
I'm crying everything but mostly your name, Sweet Ghost.
And my soul has become a cheap commodity,
with price tags marking the price you wanna see,
And I'm selling myself dishonestly as a fallen man.
Because whether you're here or not I am bound for a promised land,
I'm still unsure if it's the same one you have planned.
And Hyrum i had another awful dream,
where I was caught red-handed doing such awful things,
with mothers reclaiming their daughters in such agony,
and with great thronging and throes,
but I swear our lips touched gently under the crook of her nose.
And sweet lover, sweet love, oh, must you be in another state,
and in such places where the days can't be spent with you,
and when did I lose all of my romantic hope,
If I had a choice we'd find a place just all our own,
with nothing stopping us to go.
And I don't want to be alone,
and I faked an emergency so you'd call me, I know.
It's not like I am only crying wolf,
I'm crying everything but mostly your name, Sweet Ghost.
Track Name: American Thug
I don't wanna be an American Thug
I don't wanna be like everyone
I just want to learn to make my own food
I just want to try to have a good attitude
I don't wanna be an American Thug
I just wanna smile and show everyone love
I don't want to force people to be like me
I don't want a part on the World Police Team
Cause I don't wanna be an American Thug
and I don't want to be apathetic or numb
I just want to make places better where I'm at
I want to smile and be the best person I can
And I don't wanna be an American Thug
I don't wanna be like everyone
I want to be unique I want to be kind
But it's never that easy, all the time.
Track Name: Lynette, I Love You
When I was three, you came to me,
you had a popsicle with two sticks that we could split right down the middle
you were my friend, and i to you.
and you taught me how to share between us two.
I was 22 I picked up a guitar,
I thought it'd be a good way to share things from my heart,
I traveled round, I made some friends.
They give to me because I give something to them.
We don't have much but it's enough for us to be happy
Recently she came to me to share her time and love cause she believes
though we don't have much, it is enough,
to stick together when life gets real tough
her name's Lynette and I'm in love, she's la la la lovely.
Track Name: Artex Died In Truth Or Consequences, NM (video version)
You're climbing up up up
like a dragon's long reaching neck can scrape the sky
It's not enough
making things happen the way you want and you don't know why
But if the bad guys came with their many hordes do you think we could unify?
Or would we crack under pressure of so many armies that we had to fight?
We'd be going bop Bop BOP
with us back to back and our cap guns in the air
And they'd go plop Plop PLOP
with a cry of complaint because they'd know it was just no fair
Because we'd fight like we were thousands though we're unified into just one
But I get scared when you climb up onto my shoulders, watch me sink into the mud
At least scream my name, or pull at my reins.
I know you need more, but I'm just so drained.
And there's so much farther we need to go,
and there's so much more I want you to know.
So let's go bop Bop BOP
with us back to back and our cap guns in the air
And they'll go plop Plop PLOP
with a cry of complaint because they'll know it was just no fair
Because we'll fight like we are thousands though we're unified into just one
And I get scared when you climb up onto my shoulders, but I am never giving up
Track Name: ヒーロー見参 (Hero Kensan SLC Version)
a smile has been calling me for a long time, sometimes it squeezes by in smirks
i tried to cover my ears pretending not to hear (like Peco)
let's learn the language of the trees, I'll hunch my heart into my knees
prepare a pegasus for every naked face inhaling hope through furrowed frowns.
you think I sold my soul to Satan, I swear I gave myself to God,
what we love will always make us happy, we all make up our own right and wrong
bereave such salient an epicure
we'll change the world with our monumental miniscule gestures
I live with all my decisions all somnolescent dissipation
exacerbate the exclamation point right out.
tug on the apron of our instincts while watchers cluck dissaproval
of all the proud but beaten down to think their suffering proves they're strong.
alack the day we left the sordid soused the rascal roused running round
the crooked crown like chimerical starlings over the servant left supine.
so act adult atop your dormer window where the whole world and no one can see
can't be an anchorite in this breathless city but we can practice sociometry
line up sophomoric slams with slander vesture pained dignity with love's liniment
derail the amorist with his silver swagger and his intrusion on rustic refinement
cover the crestfallen with golden paper planes pretend and playing that it's autumn
gently undaunted by the knowledge of being a burden to the ground
now I'm a burden to all around.
she's back in Sin City, it's time for me to come back down
It's time I made a decision, It is time, I made a choice
If I'm in debt to God and you
then I'm in debt to those who hate me enough to raise their voice
don't let me be found in angry books
frustrated that they get no second looks
keep me alive with the soft love made by calloused hands
for what do we live for if not to do good?
Track Name: Sometimes To Be Completely Honest I Really Miss You And I Wish We Could Just Openly Talk Sitting Cross Legged Facing Each Other Just Holding Each Others Hands, Talking, You Know? And Just Talk And Be Friends Again. It Would Be So Nice.
that beautiful boy love him till he's full
it spills out from his soul
and parts his lovely lips
swinging into the smile making you so proud
so when his arms come round
it's not a shackle but a crown
you know it's just not fair for me to be
anything less than, everything I am.
that delicate girl with her hopes lifting up
she pushes forward with such trust
depending on your face, concern and words.
look in her eyes with half a smile, half a sigh
with both feet on the ground you fly
you're never coming down if you can just let go.
oh darling don't forget to appreciate your love
don't forget your failures past, giving lessons that will last.
