Track Name: Kalifornien (Joe's A Fiend, Josephine)
get down and move the pines
and listen up to the signs
we took the long way for sure
and now we're late for the door
he fell in love with the queen
yeah, if you know what i mean
it was the first time he tried
too bad he's empty inside

careful of the peel
sleep behind the wheel
say what you feel
keep what you steal

another crushing defeat
he really knew he was beat
they tried to sell him some wine
but he was already fine
they tried to take them away
they said that no one could stay
he wondered off on his own
he knows that nowhere is home

careful of the peel
sleep behind the wheel
say what you feel
keep what you steal

as we were nearing the end
the tunnel started to bend
if i could maybe confide
i've found a place i can hide
there ain't no reason for greed
we've everything that we need
up to the rafters we go
so we can see to below
Track Name: Knock Yrself Out
i remember going to sleep
back when i thought that we should keep
making everyone join the band
taking over all of the land
back then i thought we were the best
soaring over all of the rest
now, i know we're going to find
no more comfort in going blind

i know that you want to be alone

i want another way
i want you all to know
i want another way

i remember waking up when
i thought everyone was a dream
playing out before both my eyes
i thought everyone was a lie
thought i'd met you, we'd had a time
guess i had someone else in mind
they was someone that you don't know
and that's final, because i said so

so want you to know
everyone is slipping away

i want another way
i want you all to know
i want another way

so want you to know
everyone is slipping away

i want another way
i want you all to know
i want another way
i want you all to know
Track Name: The Beatless
no one i know
knows where to go
no one i see
will listen to me
no one around
hear not a sound

soon you will see
how to be free
i'm right at home
won't you be the same?

no one down here
thinks very clear
nobody tries
to open their eyes
no one but me

soon you will see
how to be free
i'm right at home
won't you be the same?

everyone's fine
caught in the lie
everyone's sure
that they've got the cure
everyone's head
is filled up instead

soon you will see
how to be free
i'm right at home
won't you be the same?
Track Name: All Over The Places
try to make it over
tide is high
it comes in depending
on your eyes
i was walking back in
fifty-five
SOMETHING even faster
than i tried

eats from a cup
drinks from a jar
thinks while he talks
miss the guitar
eats from a cup
drinks from a jar
it's gotta stop
it's gone to far

he's a man who you are
bound to know
ain't afraid to ever
let it grow
he'll come walking over
fifteen skies
