Track Name: Fat Jackson
We were waiting, with southern air and sunny skies
Way back then, your pure blue eyes stared into mine
The whole world, presented to my thirsty mind
Poured inside, I drank it like the soup of life
We waited
And we discussed
The virtue of patience and all the future lust
Impatience
Turned to dust

(it’s all right to)

I am become
Man, spirit of the river
With my few friends
Under the bridge, reunion is a
Sacred thing
We realized no one else matters
But balancing
Our new-found life, was harder than it
Seems
It should have been
True balance hid from all of us, it tested bonds of friends
Animosity
Turned to trust

(It’s all right to)
Track Name: Happy New
You may want to stop
Want to think for a while
When the glass has been broken
You forget how to smile
And the future’s wide open
After it almost drowned
They dug up your body
And turned you upside down

And I said:
There's memories all around me and they won’t let me in
So I can change them around to how they should have been
If I have one regret now its that I never knew
That I could be this happy, you knew, yeah you knew

The land is the place
Is the air for this while
All the world is the sand
And the moon and your smile, your smile

There's memories all around me and they won’t let me in
So I can change them around to how they should have been
And my only regret now its that I never knew
That I could be this happy, you knew, yeah you knew
Track Name: Moments
You are as I was
You’re carefree, Nirvana
our mothers, your father
could sleep for a lifetime
We both strain but you are well rested
I’m red meat
It’s just an assumption
based off of our families

Well I see the sunshine
an all around sunshine
There’s your world and there's mine
and yours is in moments
This whole world is gorgeous
stuck out on our porches
Our torches are burning
and they never go out

And I don’t know how long I’ll keep myself
living off the ground
Building up these narrow walls
I sort of knock them down
You and me and all these faces
could lose ourselves in familiar spaces
I wanna help myself to find my side

When I walk I wonder
I think of the city
All there in the background
I’ll never be lonely
And everyone ever
who loves people, cities
Reminds me of how much
I’m a clone, a blood cell

However long I stay
on the Earth I hope I
will always remember
these days make a lifetime
though time is a flooding
and how will we unwind
I love you, you’ll always
be famous in my mind

And I don’t know how long I’ll keep myself
living off the ground
Building up these narrow walls
I sort of knock them down
You and me and all these faces
could lose ourselves in familiar spaces
I wanna help myself
to find that side
Track Name: Human
We all wanna fit into this puzzle we made for us
But you want more and you’ve got more and for you it’s not enough
You’re not perfect and I’m not perfect and that’s just how it should be
this whole world is one big circus and we've got front row seats

You’re just human I’m just human
we all came from the ground
He’s just human she’s just human
baby we own this town
You’re just human I'm just human
Please, listen to these sounds
cuz we’re all human that’s ok
don’t let it get you down

Hey that's right
Don’t fight tonight
Human that's right
Human shine bright

You got an angel on your shoulder and a devil in your ear
they’re telling too many things when you just want them to disappear
We’re all looking for a hand to hold to help us reach the skies above
when you feel alone and cold remember that we’re here and we still have love

You’re just human and I’m just human
We all came from the ground
He’s just human she’s just human
Baby we own this town
You’re just human I’m just human
Please listen to these sounds
Cuz we’re all human that’s okay
Don’t let it get you down

Yeah Yeah!

You’re just human and I’m just human
We all came from the ground
He’s just human she’s just human
Baby we own this town
You’re just human I’m just human
Please listen to these sounds
Cuz we’re all human that’s okay
Don’t let it get you down
Track Name: Midnight (Tiger)
Midnight in this city
Brings pictures of you and me
And everything I'll ever, ever know
Life’s a bunch of bees
Crawling along these streets
Looking for a way and a place to go

But I met you and we agreed
We’d all be more happy
if we got together and shared everything we own
Nothing compares to me
but you and the Seven Seas
Snowfall and the places that we love

You’re the first thing I ever knew
All my organs out of place
You’re a tiger in a zoo
You’re like me wishing I could stay here
So hold on
Your hope is not in vain
Just hold on
You won’t always feel this way
Just hold on
I know that look in your eye
Just hold on
There ain’t no more dangerous
question you could ask than why

There’s so much inside your head
but you’ll always be my best friend
There’s so much you could change, you could rise above
Nothing in this country
or any others in my dreams
could pull me out of my sleep until we were in love

But I met you and we agreed
We’d all be more happy
if we got together, shared everything we own
Nothing compares to me
but you and you agree
All the planets and fireworks inside my dreams

You’re the first thing I ever knew
Little clusters in my brain
You’re a tiger in a zoo
You’re like me wishing I could stay here
So hold on
You hope its not in vain
Just hold on
You won’t always feel this way
Just hold on
I know that look in your eye
Just hold on
There ain’t no more dangerous
questions you could ask than why

Midnight in this city
Brings pictures of you and me
And everything I've ever, ever know
Track Name: Static
So late that it's early
A lines tight on your leash
For God's sake get some rest, try to find your peace
And your hole in the static
would never let you be
for God’s sake get some rest, try to find your sleep

There's no one, no way
It's too far to see
How much separates
You from me
There's no one, no way
It's too far to see
How much separates
You from me and you from me

And why'd you ever stop running?
You got frailer bones
And leave you always protected but you're always alone

If nothing else then you’re special
You know that you should be free
For God's sake get some rest
Get out of your sleeve

There's no one, no way
It's too far to see
How much separates
You from me
There's no one, no way
It's too far to see
How much separates
You from me and you from me
Track Name: Kynan's Burro
Oh, your face is gold I’m in my house
Nobody else no where to go
I’d cross a line if apropos
I had a mind that would always flow
I need a rest I took a test
I stared I stared I’m not the best
Each coming week I’d fall to pieces
If I ever had to stop stealing

Oh
We live in the same world
Everything I could have done
Everything amounts
to none

Sydney, I’m screaming each coming reason
to keep my head up could be my beacon
my mind’s gone seasons and I’m gonna freak out
but its for certain so you better believe them

Oh
We live in the same world
Everything I could have done
Everything amounts
to none

Buy my Fat Cologne!

Oh, everyone was coming out to sea
Everyone was out and on their own
None of us knew where or when to go
With everyone I'll ever have to meet
Everyone's messed up and I'm alone
Every word in silence or in stone
Every word I ever had to speak
was gone out of the way I'm on my own
