Track Name: Don't Hesitate
I lost all of the money
Is that going to be a problem
I can get it back somehow

I can feel
In the air it's stirring
Something big
Opportunity knocking
One right move
In the right place at the right time
And we're free

Anything you think you need
You just ask for it baby
I'll go down into my knees
You just ask for it baby
The only hunger I can feed
You can ask for it baby
Even if it makes me bleed
Don't Hesitate

I won't bail on my promise
To stay out of your business
Until I get back the money

I could kidnap
Some eccentric billionaire's
Only child
Hold him out for a ransom then
Rendezvous
In a shady bar
In the Phillippines

Anything you think you need
You just ask for it baby
I'll go down into my knees
You just ask for it baby
The only hunger I can feed
You can ask for it baby
Even if it makes me bleed
Don't hesitate

Hesitate. Don't Hesitate!
Hesitate. Don't Hesitate!
Hesitate. Don't Hesitate!
Hesitate.
Track Name: Mauna Kea
Check out this lawn chair
I got it on sale
Isn't it wonderful? TOUCH IT!
It's made of wicker
The pork roast is piping hot
Your show's coming on
That'd be the dryer
Your jim jams and undies all done
Put these ones on

Flying is easy
A bluebird told me
The trick is landing

Here at the kitchen window
Mauna Kea's in sight
I tried to climb it one time
But I was afraid of heights
And as I stood there fetal
Bird cut across the sky
Hovering over my eyes she whispered
See, baby, I can fly
Come on, now, see, baby, I can fly

Now you try

Woke up in a bathroom
Crashed out like a jet
A big pile of nothing waits at the edge
Of a rainbow of pills
This one's for apathy
But it makes me too happy
My valleys are so low
The sand in them burns my toes
Palm trees are hissing

Flying ain't hard, you know
A bluebird told me so
The trick is landing

Here at the kitchen window
Mauna Kea's in sight
I'm gonna climb it right now
I'm not afraid of heights
Flap, flap, flap oh my arms are lifting
Christ, I can touch the sky
Life me, oh, up into the sunset
See, baby, I can fly
Come, on, now, see, baby, I, can, fly

Who needs to land?
Track Name: The Separatist
The separatist chooses to be on his own
Where no one can reach him by cellular phone
Away from the faces in social disguise
He leaves not a trail of himself when he dies

You don't realize
You don't realize

Skies are the limit as most people find
A separatist peels back the layers behind
Revealing the brick wall encasing the sky
He punches right through it and takes off and flies

You don't realize
You don't realize

Oooh ooooh oh ooooh oh oh OOOOOO....
....OOOOOOOOOH! OOOOOOOO....
Oooh ooooooooh oh ohhh oh oh oooh oooh
....OOOOOOOOOOOH OH OH OH OOOOOOOO....
Oooh ooooh oh ooooh oh oh
....OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!
Oooh ooooh oh ooooh oh oh oh OH!
Track Name: Lost
Early
Morning
Somewhere

Inside your wildest dream
I wave my arms at you
I see you're waving, too
Our stars can only cross
Just for a moment
And
Then they're

They say that love never falters

They say that time is like a ship O 0 o . .

it's course



Across a never ceasing oceans
Of changeless shape
AND BOUNDLESS DEPTH!

AND EVERY MILE...
WE'RE PASSING OVER A BILLION CREATURES
A MILLION MOMENTS
**INFINITE** MYSTERIES UNSOLVED!!!!!

One night I dreamed of another planet...
.... Whirling round a different sun

And all the people looked lizards

looked like spiders

looked like water

Looked like nothing I ever saw ~~~~ ~~~ ~~~~~

When I awoke under the covers
Inside an old familiar place

I leapt up high onto the dresser, I curled my tail up, I cracked a w indow, I spread my wings and flew to SPACE


And wouldn't you know

When I looked back

I saw Jupiter

The Earth Was just a PHotograph


See I'd never seen the world with my own eyes
No... I never looked....

with MY OWN EYES ( o) ( o)

Sure... I'd read about it, and people had told me,
but I'd never seen the world...


with my own eyes...
Track Name: In the Summertime
KNOCK on your fortress

Bluebird

Steals your inside voice like a thief

In the summertime
In the summertime

Bluebird

Bluuuuueebiiiiiiirrrrd

You told me I was wrong
About everything I knew
Did you take me for a fool? Well....

surprise<***!*!*!*!*!*!*********

I know I
Can be an awful pain....... sometimes....
And you don't know what you need



And time does well
to break these spells
In fields of bees and flowers
We find ourselves a new again

You've got a caring spirit
No one can deny
You always ask how I'm feeling
And I can't reply
Well come a little closer to me baby
Close enough to touch
I got a secret to tell you
It might make you blush
You've got a nice little SPARK child
You've got a FIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
I get a bit too close and
YOU BURN ME ALIVE
