Track Name: Loner
i am goin where the green grass grows and the people who go there they all know that the music will show you just where to go they sing "I am goin home"
saw my baby down by the river they said now little [hannah] i don't wanna whither. you'll be strong and you'll be brave, you can grow up to be saved.

well i tore my shoes up everyday, out of the box now and into the hay, no one to talk to no one to know, no one to talk to no one who talks slooooow.

chorus-i can be the loner, i can be the loner that you want me to be

tip toe all around the house, wake up early then get out of my house.
everyday id walk to my spot, waiting for someone to drop a conversation in my hat.

chorus

round the corner split in half, a man is down and out and passed, well ive been there not long ago maybe i can show you how to grow.

chorus

this is the song of the colts foot fairy x3.5
Track Name: Promise you
everyday im a little more stable, every morning im a little less able to receive what comes at me-up on the mountain i can promise you i can promise you i can see as far as a bird-even if its raining, even if its raining, even if its

find someone with your same little troubles, they'll tell you to find your own little bubble, happiness can be found in a stranger, open up and be less afraid of danger your in good company-down by the river i can promise you i can promise you i can float as far as a log especially when its raining especially when its raining especially when its

these hands were made to play play play x5k

climb aboard and sing a sloppy little tune with me, every song has its own little movie, walk the plank if you start any trouble, otherwise im sure i could double your low harmony-down in antarctica i can promise you i can promise you we can find a penguin and be friends cuz there it hardly rains there it hardly rains there it hardly
Track Name: Sun don't shine
sometimes i cut my hair-i like it when its not there
maybe you should be more fair-i like it when you don't care
cuz the sun dont shine and the grass dont grow when your alone x2
i find myself in the darkest hour of night

i used to not take many showers-sometimes thats the way it goes
the future says im not a liar-you can still change that though-ooo-oh
you can change anything you know uh oh oh you can change anything you know
cuz the sun dont shine and the grass dont grow when your alonex2
i find myself in the darkest hour of night (call me an owl)
i wake up in the darkest hour of night call me an owl x2k

often i crawl into bed-sometimes i like to play dead
i understood most of what you had said-you'll make up the rest in your head
cuz the sun dont shine and the grass dont grow when your alonex2
i find myself in the darkest hour of night (call me an owl)
i wake up in the darkest hour of night call me an owl x6mil

i like it when you dont care
i like it when its not there
i like it when you dont care
i like it when its not there
Track Name: Geology
stem cells are beautiful because if someday i need a new heart there might be one waiting for me in the freezer
i tell you what we need, we need a little bit more of geology in our society in the future
i like digging for rocks because some of them have a lot in common with me; we wait for someone to find our beauty

chorus: we are the common folk, we sleep with our eyes closed. we are the common folk, we cant see with our eyes closed

astrologists dont know nothing about no dirt on the earth and entomologists dont know nothin about no dinosaurs and scientologists; they're pretty hardcore and i dont even know about that shit

chorus

colorado's unsettling and id really prefer not to talk about it but you do whatchoo like cuz youre a free bird you birdy you (chorus) you birdy you you birdy you you little birdy you

chorus

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Track Name: Tonka trucks
i love you in the west
i love you in the east
i love you in the south even though that might be a little bit dirty
i love you in the trees
i love you in the breeze
i love you on your knees even though that might be a little bit naughty
chorus: if tonka trucks could dig up the forest x3
id be there to watch
i love you on the phone
i love you all alone
i love the way you bone even though i shouldnt say that in public
i love the way you tend to be there till the end
i love you and your friends even though that could get a little complicated
chorus
i love you on the floor
i love you when your bored
i love you till your sore-even though that may not be all from me you bitch
what are you talking about we dont own eachother
what are you talkin about we dont all talk to ourselves
chorus
id be there to watchx3
