Track Name: What Am I Without You
I am a sailor on a ship and i
Love a girl with eyes as blue as the sea so high
But there’s a hole in the bottom of the ocean
And if I fall off of this deck, I may die

Well I am a soldier in a war and i
Have marched across a field so far down from the sky
And I don’t fear a bullet or a bayonet
But If I can’t see you again I may cry

Well I am an astronaut
Flying above earth on a ball of fire
There’s a comet headed right for me
So if I fall back down, I hope I land in the sea

I’ve traveled all across this whole damn world
And there’s nothing that I’ve seen quite like you
I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long,
I hope the missing pages weren’t too
Strong for you
But there’s nothing I’ve seen quite like you

Well I am scientist
Experimenting with radiation
If I grow a third arm, or a tentacle for a head,
I certainly hope you’d still find the time to
Sit with me in my bed

Well I am a vagabond
I roam around this land without purpose
I’ve grown quite a beard and I don’t smell very good
But I hope that you still think I’m at least hilarious

Well I am a writer and i
Pour my soul down onto a page
I might drink a bit, or put holes in walls, cause I can’t take the rage
But i would never hurt you, I’m just so tired of this place
Awh, heck,
Awh, heck

I’ve traveled all across this whole damn world
And there’s nothing that I’ve seen quite like you
I’m sorry I’ve been gone so long,
I hope the missing pages weren’t too
Strong for you
But there’s nothing I’ve seen quite like you
Track Name: Get Lost
That wild wind blows us around
Like falling leaves through the streets of a small town
Go and get lost cause
If you never get lost, you never get found
Get lost
Get lost
I used to know a young guy, had no mountain to climb
Well he left town during the winter some time
I heard he’s in the army
I wish him well, but don’t swear on me
Cause my heart goes out with the western wind
Well I know a girl, who’s got a lot to say
The world kicked her around, it’s her dragon to slay
She said she died that day
But she’s strumming on her guitar, so I guess she’s okay
Her hearts leavin on a train, called the western wind
There’s an old man, on the sidewalk
They say he’s crazy, and that I shouldn’t talk to him
But doesn’t seem like that bad of a guy
When I see him, I won’t be shy,
He probably just left his mind with the western wind
Well I wasn’t popular in highschool
I was some fucked up wannabe poetic regretted fool
But I guess I turned out alright
Not too late to get tickets for the fight
Of a sad kid beatin’ his heart against the western wind
That wild wind blows us around
Like falling leaves through the streets of a small town
Go and get lost cause
If you never get lost, you never get found
Get lost
Get lost
Track Name: The Fourth of July
Thomas Jefferson
And Marilyn Monroe
Sat in the park
Toe to toe
He said stop
And she said go
A fire started in their brains
He was sick of playin’ her games
He said,
“Baby, don’t tell me lies”
Then he noticed
It was the
Fourth of July
Well he left
To walk the streets
Alone
She wandered off
To Acapulco
And found a casket
With her name
On the side,
Taken in vain
She knew who had scratched it on
As she was approaching the dawn
She thought,
“Maybe it was only the rain”
On that day called
The Fourth of July
Thomas Jefferson
Walked down the road
When a man called
From his abode
“Hey, don’t you know
What day it is”
Tommy said
“No, but I can surely guess”
And he continued on his way
Knowing full well
It was the Fourth
Of July
Ben Franklin stepped into his office
Alone
And he heard a ring
On the telephone
He heard Tom say
“Hey
How you been
I’d like to see you again”
So Ben went on to stormy skies
Out on the
Fourth
Of July
Tom And Ben
Sat in a coffee shop
Smoking hash
And taking drops
They spoke softly
‘Bout the government
And the injins who were climbin the walls
When Monroe came in, walking tall
And Tom got hit by the ball
Said “Ben,
Get me outta this place!”
And they ran out to the heat of
The Fourth of July
She followed them out
Into the street
Where they began
To plant their feet
A shot rang out
As the sky grew dark
A bullet landed in Toms brain
That began to drive him insane
Then she said,
“Come take a walk with me
Through this town on
The Fourth of July”
After it was all
Said and done
Tom sat alone with
A mind on the run
He couldn’t tell
Who set the spark
Of the flame inside his heart
Was it her, was it an art?
Or perhaps, it was just his fate
On that day
Called
The Fourth of July
Track Name: Someday, But Not Today
don't worry about it
Track Name: The Saddest Song In The World
Once there was a young kid
Playin on the sidewalk
His friends were out of town
From behind him
He heard a soft sound
That burned right through his soul
He ran home to his mother dear,
She said hush child, dry your tears
He said ma, I’m gonna die
I say, hush child don’t you cry
You only heard
The saddest song in the world
A few years later,
He was growin up
He found himself a little girl
And he loved her,
Oh my, how he loved her
And she said,
I think maybe I love you too, I guess I don’t know
But there was another guy goin after her too
And she said, hey, I think I’ll go with you
The other guy that is,
And the kid
Laid his heart down on the street
And he played
He played, he played, he played
The saddest song
In the world
well the saddest song in the world wasn’t written for him
it was for a soldier from Vietnam
who liked to put the needle in his arm
well he was no soldier from a war long gone
he was no addict addled with no sense of right and wrong
he was just a kid
and he knew it
so he forgot
he forgot, he forgot
the saddest song in the world
well later on in his life
he was a man
had 2.3 kids, a dog, and a wife
one day he was walking down the street
he heard coins drop in a can
there was a vet in a digital camo jacket
and he looked tired
more tired than any man alive
so the kid, grown up now, he asked him
said, “whatchyou doin son”
vet sad, “v.a. got no budget,
so I’m out here in the hot sun”
and then he made a soft sound
and it burned through the kid’s soul
but different from those years before
the words crashed down
like a hammer
the music rang and clamored
like a thousand mighty winds
and he said ma,
ma where are you, I’m gonna die
someone said,
hush now,
now ain’t the time to cry
so the kid laid down
on the sidewalk
and he sang
and he sang, he sang, he sang
the saddest song in the world
Track Name: Redemption Song
The breath you drew
Like a testament
Wore the tongues it knew
Like holy vestments
There ain’t no god that
I pray to
But the times your heart beat
Will have to do
“Will you hear my sad decree
I said I had a Diamond, not a Spade”
said The Jack of Hearts as he run through The Everglades
his heart beat hard in the heat of the summer weight
“Well maybe I’ll just go down to Mexico
See what I can see if my words will grow
Hear that Spanish guitar sing soft and low
Where, oh, where, did the time go
Redemption Song, keep me on a roll
Sing my blues right through the bedroom floor
Redemption Song, cries Geronimo
My soul’ll roll through like an old crow
