Track Name: Sweet Spot
Pour another round from the bottle
Put another record on
Somewhere in the middle is a sweet spot baby
I can hear it but I cannot see it
I can hear it and it sounds so sweet

Can’t get somethin’ from nothin’
and nothin’ in life is free
Somewhere in the middle is a sweet spot baby
I can hear it but I cannot see it
I can hear it and it sounds so “ooooo”
hear it and it sounds so sweet

I’m alone but I’m not lonely
Some say that is bitter sweet
Somewhere in the middle is a sweet spot baby
I can hear it but I cannot see it
I can hear it and it sounds so
hear it and it sounds so
hear it and it sounds so “ooooo”
hear it and it sounds so sweet
Track Name: Somethin's Changin'
She used to have opinions about the world
On the tip of her tongue when she was a little girl
And every time a flag unfurls
She knows somethin’s changin’

She went up to the mountain and back down the sea
A bindle and a band - the happiest that she’ll ever be
And every Time she’s Free
She knows somethin’s changin’

She likes the lights down low when she’s at home
A man by her side so she is never lonely
And every time her baby moans
She knows somethin’s changin’
And every time her baby moans
She knows somethin’s changin’
Track Name: The Dandelion Has My Smile (redeux)
Give me the strength on the day I’m born
And I will walk even when my shoes are worn
Ohhhhhhh, hmmm

I met a man, there was pain in his eyes
I wonder why he does not cry?

I met a girl, no shoes on her feet
I wonder why she does not eat?

We came to a river as black as ink
Will we float? No, we’ll surely sink

My smile is gone, where did it go?
It melted away with the cold rain and snow

My smile is gone - but don’t you worry
The dandelion (...) has my smile
Track Name: Where There Once Was Water
Where there once was water, the sky is black
Where there once was water, the earth is cracked
We hope and we pray it’s coming back to us...water

Where there once was water, it’s hard to reach
Rings recede and bones are beached
And all that’s left are the things we teach about water

Where there once was water is the new frontier
It’s finally here, the one we feared
Where the once was water, it’s never been clearer...water

Where there once was water is a farmer’s well
Where there once was water is a vineyard bell
Corporations have helped themselves to our water

Where there once was water, the land is dry
Where there once was water is a baby’s cry
Where the once was water is a sign of life...water

Where there once was water is the rain man’s song
Where there once was water, it won’t be long
I hope and I pray that you’ll sing along...water
Where there once was water
Track Name: This Machine Is Ready to Roll (redeux)
A child of the time of the great Dust Bowl
Knows time is more than money or who you know
Hands on the banjo, countin’ telephone poles
Cruisin’ down the backroads where no one’s in control
This machine is ready to roll

If we’re lookin’ for answers, we won’t find them here
We’ll search until we’re tired and angry and fearful
Our heads are in the sand at the final frontier
Shootin’ at the sky like some kind of bombadier

Down from the mountain to the watering hole
Come crazy looking people with their buckets of coal
Build another boomtown, there’s fire in the hole
It drops me to my knees as it all unfolds
This machine is ready to roll

We’ve been gettin’ down since the days of old
There ain’t nothin’ universal like that good ol’ Rock ‘n’ Roll
It’s a small, small world - or so I‘m told
That’s why I choose love instead of silver and gold
This machine is ready to roll
Track Name: Monsoon Season
No one conclusion, this evolution
They call it progress, cannot abide by this
We’re stuck in traffic, what about the magic?
Turn down your frantic - relentless, ain’t got no quit

I’ll take you back to fun, everybody needs someone
Big Data, Big Fever, so much overachiever
Put down your guns! I can’t contain myself
I’ll tell you just this once - put down your guns!

Clouds are movin’, Rain gonna come soon
It’s monsoon season, Let go your reason
Keep dancin’ on, keep dancin’ on

No one is empty, Nothing is plenty
I’m talkin’ madness, I’m talkin’-sanity
I’m in the slow lane, Put on a rosy frame
Walk on a limb with me like you got nowhere (nowhere to be)

The monsoon season is here you know
Clouds beget rain and maybe get the river flowin’
Party for no reason and everybody’s goin’
Stringtown’s getting’ down and everybody knows

Come on...shimmy to the left, shake it to the right
Make your money maker make your body feel all right
Shake your shimmy shaker, make your shaker nice and tight
Everybody’s got it now! Do it with a friend!
When we get to this part now, do it all again!

Talkin’ about a...substitution constitution evolution revolution
A no pollution resolution contribution absolution
A shooshan Lucian lilliputian retribution distribution
A no more execution prostitution devolution
Track Name: The Greatest Joy of All
Open up your door and let me in
I will stay for a while
Seasons come and seasons go
and nothin’ is lost
Where’s your smile

One time for the money, two times for love
and three times for the greatest joy of all
One time for my honey, two times for love
and three times for the greatest joy of all

You were once a child with dreams of your own
Right now, have no fear
Seasons come and seasons go
and still I don’t know
But I can hear it

One time for the money, two times for love
and three times for the greatest joy of all
One time for my honey, two times for love
and three times for the greatest joy of all
Track Name: Passive Aggressive Killer
I feel the dun drum hum on my skin
An organized bomb, a car engine
Layer after layer of agitated air
Like a solar flare

There’s a tasteless tickle in my mouth
Like a swarm of insects are tryin’ to get out
An irritating tingle stings my teeth
Like the buzzing of a bee

Everywhere in my ears ‘till I hear the drone
Everywhere in my body ‘till it shakes my bones
Everywhere in my eyes ‘till I go blind
Passive aggressive killer of my peace of mind

I smell the baking of a bulb in the room
Sloughed off shoes, shit perfume
Layer after layer, it bakes on hot
Like sedimentary rock

For whose good fortune did I leave you there
In spite of your smile, I knew you were scared
Of a solitary cell with nothin’ but a light
Nothin’ but a light
Track Name: Boat Hymn
I am a boat
when the river floods
and the water needs crossin’
I am a tree
on the mountain
when the rain’s comin’ down

Oh giver of life
and taker of life
Guide me through the day
and guard me at night

What is a boat without an oar?
A tree without branches?
The boat will drift, the tree will die,
the tree will die
