Think Again 01:11
Hair on my arm standing on end I won't waste a second to fill out this stupid form Sweat on my palms - frost in my shoes I won't take your crap because I'm told I'm not the norm In my shadow there's a penny Indestructible and copper A show stopper Do I dare to pick it up? No! It's not worth it It's not worth it...

Noon - I made it to lunchtime - my screen is a blur My eyes - they can't barely focus or make out the words I have a dream I could fly away out of this pen But till then it's but! But! But! Three - the day's almost finished and soon I'll be home Where I could watch TV and drink all alone My heart - it's getting old It don't pump as fast as it used to Still I do this but! But! But! Five - it's happy hour but I am too sad I've wasted a lifetime and my health is bad Damn all this equipment! This cholesterol is like glue Sticking to my butt! Butt! Butt! I have I dream I could fly away - I could fly away... I have I dream I could fly away - I could fly away... I have I dream I could fly away - I could fly away... I have I dream I could fly away - I could fly away...

You seem uptight - don't look alright Dumb clothes - bad hair - go get some air I've no conscience - I've no conscience.. You seem anxious - sweaty - nervous Skin hurts - brain swell - can't dance so well I've no conscience - I've no conscience..

Influx positron - influx positron I must look out for the electron! Influx positron - influx positron If I meet the electron it means sure annihilation Influx positron - influx positron It's some kind of sick cosmic ping pong Influx positron - in flux! Influx positron - influx positron Jesus Christ I hope there's no electron! When he drew the atomic plans I don't think god worked very long Influx positron - influx positron How can such tiny tiny things act very wrong? Influx positron - in flux! There's a word for the river To describe its course of action Not random - not planned But still twisting unpredictably Beneath the blue... open... sky.......

So Damn Sure 03:02
Don't speak unless you explain How you're playing this game I am so confused And don't ask unless it's your plan To understand And not just be amused Now the dam breaks... Oh - it's a giant riddle With no answers ahead - or before And I'm stuck in the middle How can you be so damn sure? Don't try to prove it again I'll only get it when Your logic makes sense Because you don't follow reason You don't follow truth You think power of youth is experience But you're wrong... Oh - it's a giant riddle And we'll argue till 3:00, maybe 4:00 But I'm still stuck in the middle How can you be so damn sure?

Oh! Sucker time is here My most favorite time of year Line right up and face your punishment Oh! There is no excuse Not to take abuse I will rip your earlobes off And gouge your eyes out with a spoon And wedge inside your rectum a bassoon I will make you listen to a Kenny G or Yanni tune And maybe you'll be happy Oh! Sucker time is now And all torture is allowed Let me calibrate my instruments Which make you less than whole Dig into your soul I will make you eat twelve hot dogs Then run ten miles around this track I will pull your heart out through your back Then I'll whisper "all is well" As everything around turns black And maybe you'll be happy

I am on Acid 01:18
It's a beautiful day - people go to the park But I'm in my room enjoying the dark The sun is all bright - not a cloud in the sky But I'm staying in and I'll tell you why It's 'cuz... I am on acid! I am on acid! I am on acid! I am on acid!! Beautiful day but I'll stay inside because my pupils are way open wide I guess I could wear some sunglasses But don't you think then it would be obvious that... I am on acid! I am on acid! I am on acid! I am on acid!! It's a beautiful day then I hear the phone ring After hours of silence that sound's a terrible thing I daren't pick it up - what if it's my folks? If I talk to them now they'd probably both have strokes 'Cuz... I am on acid! I am on acid! I am on acid! I am on acid!!

Take me Home 00:50
Take me home Where the skies are blue The fields are gold The beer is warm The guns are loaded And your shed's dilapidated

about

Long lost recordings on good ol' 4-track cassette done between 2001-2003. Just me and my Tascam and my instruments and a couple really crappy microphones. Lots of raw materials and raw performances. Glimpses at my naked brain back in those days. I recorded hundreds of songs during these years. These are some of the better ones that I'll probably never get around to redoing before I die, so have at them!
