Track Name: Dancing on the Bathroom Floor
Thoughts I think inside my head echo in my ears,
Taking flight inside my mind, quenching all my fears.
Birds and raging thunder echo through the door,
Dancing with the things I think upon the bathroom floor.

You said that I didn’t see what it was I saw
Then you opened up your eyes, seeing even more:
Birds and raging thunder fluttered by your eyes,
Dancing for you gracefully to your great surprise.

Now my thoughts reside with you, both of us have seen
The scenes inside the photographs that we took inside a dream
Of birds and raging thunder that echoed left and right
Dancing on the bathroom floor with you that winter night.
Track Name: New Blues
I said I’d take you out, I said I’d treat you right,
I said I’d get you home before the morning light,
But you said, “Hey, let’s just be friends.”

I said I’d buy you flowers, I said I’d buy you rings,
I said I’d buy you teddy bears and other little things,
But you said, “Hey, let’s just be friends.”

Well I’ve got friends, they’re all alright,
But they don’t keep me warm in the middle of the night.
I just need a lover — please! I’ve got friends — all I need.

I said that we’d be sweet, I said that we’d be right,
I said that we’d have chemistray to get us through the night,
But you said, “Hey, let’s just be friends.”

Well I’ve got friends, they’re all alright,
But they don’t keep me warm in the middle of the night.
I need a lover — please! I’ve got friends — all I need.

Skibideebopadoo!
Track Name: Floating
Floating in the sky
Moments pass me by
‘Cause I’m just a cloud
And I’ve been floating in your sky.

Waiting all this time
For the sun to shine
‘Cause you are the sun
And I’ve been waiting for you to shine.

Rolling by in the afternoon, hoping that I see you soon Hoping you will dry these tears I rain.
Rolling in as the day goes by, way up in the sky I fly
Won’t you come and help to ease my pain? Just let it rain.

Floating in for the night
After my day-long flight,
‘Cause I’m just a cloud
And I’m waiting for you to shine.

Rolling by in the afternoon, hoping that I see you soon Hoping you will dry these tears I rain.
Rolling in as the day goes by, way up in the sky I fly
Won’t you come and help to ease my pain? Just let it rain.
Track Name: Center of the Circle Slash Bunny Rabbits
Move in to the center of the circle.
Set your soul aflame.
Release this mortal prison.
Surrender to the underlord.

Lots of little bunny rabbits hopping through the forest.
Hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop, hop!
Track Name: Don't Forget Your Goldfish (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)
Instrumental
Track Name: Barefoot and Alone
If, by chance, I ever lose all that I’ve worked for
And have to live in a cardboard box with a T-shirt for a door,
I would buy a spacious box, big enough for two,
Dress it up and turn it into home for me and you.

You could always leave me barefoot and alone,
But if your feet get gangrenous, I’ll carry you back home.
You could always leave me barefoot and alone,
But if your feet get gangrenous, I’ll carry you — carry you back home.

Carry you back to our cardboard palace,
with our milk-crate thrones,
Where we will live and never be
barefoot and alone.

You could always leave me barefoot and alone,
But if your feet get gangrenous, I’ll carry you back home.
You could always leave me barefoot and alone,
But if your feet get gangrenous, I’ll carry you — carry you back home.
Track Name: September Moon
I heard you singing in the night, but I didn’t see you
‘Til the September moon showed you there, singing in the air.

Darkness hid the world from me, and I couldn’t see you
’Til the September moon arrived, swallowing the night.

September moon, September moon, September moon save me.

I was blind and all alone, and I couldn’t leave
‘Til the September moon came around, letting the lost be found.

Shadows kept me prisoner, and I couldn’t leave
’Til the September moon arrived, saving me that night.

September moon, September moon, September moon save me.

Locked inside myself, trapped in solitude
Kept from happiness and loving you,
I turned around into your arms
I stumbled, tripped, and fell in love with you.

September moon, September moon, September moon save me.
Track Name: Mr. Miyagi's Hoe-Down at the Pig Farm
Mr. Myagi. Wax on, wax off.
Bonsai.
Catchin’ the fly with the chopsticks.
Focus.
He’s Japanese.
Okinawa.
Doin’ the crane.
Track Name: Ashes
Cassie lights a cigarette and tells me she’s not ready yet,
But I’m leaving (leaving).
She calls me on the telephone and asks if I can be her home,
But not really.

All are ashes ‘round the fireplace. All are ashes floating ‘round in space.
A careless flick, and they go soaring to the sky — love isn’t just supposed to die.

There was a guy who broke her heart — her mind and soul were ripped apart
But she loves him (loves him).
She tries to go back home to him — he says he cannot let her in
But nothing (nothing).

All are ashes ‘round the fireplace. All are ashes floating ‘round in space.
A careless flick, and they go soaring to the sky – love isn’t just supposed to die.

And as she stands in front of me, I cannot say what she cannot see,
But I try.
And after all and in the end, you cannot heal what will not mend,
But I try.
Track Name: BJ
