Track Name: Everything I Wanna Be
Dead in the water every night
Wander off into the wild into everything
You’re all alone under the sky
Now you’re back lying next to me, it’s everything I wanna be
It’s everything I wanna be

It’s like you’re flying but you’re not in your body
With all the waves perfectly breathing in synchrony
Don’t try to fight it like it’s kung fu karate
I only want you next to me, it’s everything I wanna be
It’s everything I wanna be

Until the end of time
I’ll be with you when the robots rule their dynasty
And even when I die
I’ll come back as your favorite tree, be anything you want from me
Be anything you want from me

It’s like you’re flying but you’re not in your body
With all the waves perfectly breathing in synchrony
Don’t try to fight it like it’s kung fu karate
I only want you next to me, it’s everything I wanna be
It’s everything I wanna be

I wish that I could close my eyes
And make you all disappear
The sun, the sky is all we have from here
It’s in the air, I can feel it

It’s like you’re flying but you’re not in your body
With all the waves perfectly breathing in synchrony
Don’t try to fight it like it’s kung fu karate
I only want you next to me, it’s everything I wanna be
It’s everything I wanna be
Track Name: Deadleaves
Dead leaves fall onto the ground
As she runs on down the hall crying
For someone she hasn’t seen in years
But he’s been here all this time
The darkness settled in
He can see her despair on her face
Is it something I said or maybe something I didn’t?

Won’t you dry your tears, Momma?
The rain will fall down, down, down
Alone at a table, by and by
I called on the phone but you’re still not there

We walk out to the car
With a touch upon her gentle face
I guess this is goodbye or maybe hello again
Cause I can’t let it go on
Thought these scars would fade away
But the pain just won’t subside
And she never thought she’d see her son again

Won’t you dry your tears, Momma?
The rain will fall down, down, down
Alone at a table, by and by
I called on the phone but you’re still not there

I’m not gonna say goodbye
I’m not gonna say goodbye
I’m not gonna say goodbye
I’m not gonna say
Track Name: Whitesnake
I watched you down by the riverside, you never know
I caught you rocking to Whitesnake on the radio
Well, what if your mother told you to lay your body down?
Well, what if your mother told you to lay your body down?
Well, no one wants you around

I caught a wave in your graveyard in the dead of night
And all these bottles and bones cry out, we both survived, high five
But I never thought that I could just fly under skies awesome blue
And it’s all my fault, a bottle for me’s like a shotgun for you
And I should’ve burned in the basement with you

The lights all aligned like the night we got faded
Just hanging like sneakers on a telephone wire
You look superfly, and, oh by the way, kid
I always knew that it was you that broke my skateboard in half
And it was me that set your dog on fire, get on the dance floor

You already lost your head, but you wanna stay out all night
Well, your mommy wore a snake and your daddy a dress, and you still ended up all right
And we just shook our heads and laughed as the fire and ash grew behind us as we’re walking away
And everybody always told us that we sounded like Death, but when we asked him, Death had nothing to say, just nod your head more

I watched you down by the riverside, you never know
I caught you rocking to Whitesnake on the radio
Well, what if your mother told you to lay your body down?
Well, what if your mother told you to lay your body down?
Well, no one wants you around
Track Name: Ghost
Sunk in the garden so deep
I’ll never feel you again, but at least I can sleep
Now all I’ve got is a dream
Where I come back in the Darkness with the moon and the stars, so tonight
I will rise, I will rise, I will rise

And I will find you under forgotten skies
If I came back different, would you still have the same look in your eyes?
It’s all out of phase, and now it’s just a bump in the night
The water is up to my neck, letting go, here’s the tide
Let it rise, let it rise, let it rise

Here it comes on the wind and in the darkness of night
I can feel it take me in and rip me up inside
Follow me through the weeds, yeah, we can run from the light
I will find you, take you over to the other side

Everyone that I know is just a little bit terrified
Of being the right kind of wrong
And I came back here to tell you Death is only a state of mind
But it’s obvious that I don’t belong

Or maybe I should just pretend that I’m gone
You see I’ve been here all along
Swim past the breakers and into the night
Do something dangerous, yeah, your body won’t die when you’re young
Yeah, your body won’t die, if it does
You will rise, you will rise, you will rise

Here it comes on the wind and in the darkness of night
I can feel it take me in and rip me up inside
Follow me through the weeds, yeah, we can run from the light
I will find you, take you over to the other side

Everyone that I know is just a little bit terrified
Of being the right kind of wrong
And I came back here to tell you Death is only a state of mind
But it’s obvious that I don’t belong
Track Name: Melted Butter
You’re breaking hearts and pushing daisies
And I won’t see you again, so I’ll just wish you well
You left the Earth and left me crazy
I hope you found your god or you’re enjoying hell

They say it still gets cold out in California
But I’ll go anyway and just enjoy the love
Now I don’t claim to know, but I think I should warn you
That when you die and move to your next life, they just might ask you how heaven was
Give me the fuzz

Now the twilight was violet, all the leaves turning brown
I was bathing in the soundwaves, trying to get down
And I could never seem to fall asleep without you around
To tell you how I feel with my tongue on the ground

And if I wait for something better, I could be here for days
Watching the world slowly end with a smile on my face
So we could head down south and vanish into thin air
Start a religion in a strip mall, somewhere nowhere would care
And our first hymn could go like this, get ready
Track Name: Chain
I’ve walked the Earth now long enough
To know everybody’s lost their mind
Terrified, not logic-inspired
By the talking heads in prime time
It doesn’t matter which side you stand on
The business plan is to divide
They’ve used fear for how many years?
It’s been profitable, you can't deny

Break the chain
Break the chain now
Break the chain
Break the chain now
Break the chain
Break the chain now
Break the chain
Break the chain now

I just don’t get now how we forget
The history right in front of our eyes
So-called experts and all of their guesswork
Will say whatever money can buy
And the rest just pound their chest
And stick their flags on their side
Woody Guthrie said it best all those years ago
“This land is yours and mine”

Break the chain
Break the chain now
Break the chain
Break the chain now
Break the chain
Break the chain now
Break the chain
Break the chain now
