Track Name: Morning Time
"Well it's the morning time
I know it's real hard to wake up
But if you go outside
You'll find it hard to come back in
Cause in the morning time
Before the day really begins
It's when the city is at rest
You'll find the city at it's best

When there ain't no cars a-beepin
You can stroll along the streets and
Smile back at the rising sun
Day has just begun...

Oh n i wonder
As i wander around
With my feet pushin me further
While my mind soars off the ground
Will i ever reach where i'm goin
Or will time suck me in
And before i even know it
I'll be 40, still wandering...

City never feels this peaceful
Night time could be deceitful
Claiming to be calm
But there's always somethin going on
Lonely voices,
Screaming to be heard

So i like to walk in silence,
Along the side of people's homes
Where everyone's still sleeping
And in their dreams they're not alone

Oh n i wonder
As i wander around
With my feet pushin me further
While my mind soars off the ground
Will i ever reach where i'm goin
Will the world ever stop crying
Well there really is no knowing
But there ain't no hurt in trying...

Well it's the morning time
I know it's real hard to wake up
But if you go outside
You'll find it hard to come back in
Cause in the morning time
Before the day really begins
It's when the city is at rest
You'll find the city at it's best"
Track Name: Papa's Magic Coat
"I'm just sittin here
Thoughts are floatin all around
Round my head

Now i'm lying here
In my green grass nature bed
Thinkin of all the things that you told me
When i was just a wee little kiddo

Dreamin of treasure maps
N traveling the sea
Flying in space n frolicking happily
You and me,
Beneath the goal post palm trees...

I'm here in the sun
You're there in the cold
I said i'm missin you
You said it's growing old

Just wanna
Just wanna come home, home, home...

N when i look up
At the moonlit sky
It's comforting to think
You might be watching the clouds
Rollin on by
N i try my best not to cry...."
Track Name: Tiltin' Flowers
"Why do you make me miss you when you're not even gone
Well it looks like you've moved past it, so i should move on
But i still feel the same way
N you say you still care
But when i need you most it seems
Like you're just not there
Anymore... for me

Oh what happened to the good old days
When you n i would roll around
N all the while our eyes would shine
With happy deep genuine smiles
You would turn around n say
Somethin that would make my heart sway
Affection, in your direction

But now i sit alone on the moon
Didn't think i'd be sayin good bye
So soon... to you

N all the flowers that i pass
Are tiltin towards the grass
They're wilting they can't stand tall
Just like them i didn't know how far i'd fall
Cause you see i didn't think this hurt at all

But it does,
Cause i still had hope for us
Before you told me
Y'couldnt hold me anymore
In your arms
In your armmsss

In your arms i felt safe,
It was like a peaceful cave
I thought no one could ever take my place
But then i got kicked out when someone new moved into town
N turned my world upside down...

Though i know in the end
It'll all be fine
For right now i'm gonna spend my time
Feelin low... everywhere i go

'Cause that's the way life spins
Every time somethin bad happens
Somethin good is right around the bend
I'm just waitin for these good times life will send..."
Track Name: Another Glass
"Wish it didn't have to be this way
But you made it so
The cold sting of rainy nights
I've grown to know so well

Your mask is faded
N i could see your pain
Now that it's hear
I could never feel the same

N how looong
How long
Come onnn
How long
How looong
Will we sing
The same old song...

You try n help everybody else
Cause you can't help yourself
You pour yourself another glass
N say it's gonna be your last

It's hard to see you when you're so far gone
feelin so helpless, you're not the only one...

N how loong
How long
Come onnn
How long
How loong
Will we sing,
the same old song...

Winter is near again
Winter is here
Well yknow the dark skies will clear again
Before long, so hold on to your tears

Well i bought my Ma a flower
Cause i dont like to see her cry
Wonder how she sees only the dark
When it's so light outside

Gotta find, somewhere else to gooo now
Well i find, there's nowhere left to go
N you're ridin me down
You're drivin me wild
You can't do this to your beloved chiiild..."
Track Name: Wastin' Away
"And i wonder
What do you think of me
Or do you think of me at all
And should i stumble
Would you catch me
Or would you let me fall

And if the answer to these questions
Lies within your eyes then
Why can i not see it
Am i dumb or am i blind

Blinded by my love, perhaps
A love that will not fade cause
What we think is one thing
Another what we say

n im Wastinnn away yeah-ah
Wasin away
Im wastin' away
All my life...
Wastin' away

If the last time we saw each other
Was when we said good bye today
Would you hold on to my image
Or let it sail away
Would you feel a little empty
Feel a little sad
Or go about your every day
Just like you always had

No one can hear my callin
No one can see my fallin down
I'm fallin down im fallin down im fallin down
Well nobody could see it but im

Wastin awayy, yeah-ah
Wastin away
I'm wastin awayy
All my life...
Wastin away"
Track Name: Tea & Chocolate
"I dont mind a little rain every now n then
But when it pours down every day it makes me wanna spend
All my time
Curled up inside
Where i got my tea n chocolate
N i dont need nothin else
Cause i know tea n chocolate
Guarantee good mental health
Hey hey hey
Das what i say...

Well i dont mind a little pain every now n then
But when it hits me every day
It makes me wanna spend
All my time
Curled up inside
Where i got my tea n chocolate
N i dont need nothin else
Cause i know tea n chocolate
Guarantee good mental health
Hey hey hey
Das what i say"
Track Name: Phat Trax McGhee
"Comin out the cuts
Gonna hit you in the gutz
Gonna kick you in the nutz
Cause i'm crazy as fuck
All you suckaz outta luck
Cause i'm Mayya Vagina
N im a mad rhyme-a
Gonna smoke a phat dime-a
Muthafuckas comin at me n i pop em every time-a
Like a zit
Too legit to quit, what...
Ugh, aw shiet....

I'm not stoned said the girl with the ash in her teeth
I'm just a little hungry, can we please make this brief
I said, yeah i got these eye drops if you want some relief
Your eyes are blazin n you got a great big grin
Clearly what you're doin should not be called a sin
So come on over to my house I'll fix you some din din
Then we'll play some music n the real fun will begin
There ain't nothin wrong with bein high
It is such a great way to get by now STOP
Appreciate the sky...

Walkin thru the park in the bright sunshine
Ima take this day n make it mine
I ain't got much money now
I keep groovin anyhow

Sittin on a grassy hill
Smokin all that green until
You no longer feel ill will
N you no longer wanna kill
All you wanna do is chill
You just float by in a stream
Feelin like you in a dream
Everythin is so serene
Come on now dont cause a scene
There's no need to be obscene
Just sit back, relax, n toke
Don't need no excuse to smoke
Keep on smokin all day long
I was stoned as fuck when i wrote this song!

Walkin thru the park in the bright sunshine
Ima take this day n make it mine
I aint got much money now
I keep groovin anyhow

I dont like work all that much
Carin about such n such
Tokin on the other hand
Well that is why i joined this band
Sink way down into the sand
Leave your mark upon this land
When my life's in slow decay
Pass a peace pipe down my way
You n me n he n she
We're all comrades to the stars
N i believe this to be
Simply cause we're all from mars

Walkin thru the park in the bright sunshine
Ima take this day n make it mine
I ain't got much money now
I keep groovin anyhow...

Imagine a world with flying cars
People passin out free candy bars
Imagine a world with complete freedom
Equality n peace fuck yeah we need em

Ugh.. das what i said, ye..."
Track Name: Roam
"How do i live when i know you exist
How do i live when i know you exist
How do i live when i know you're in this world
How do i live when i know i'm not yours
Anymoooree

You asked me if I
Would write us a song
But you didn't give me very looong
So now i spend my time
Comin up with rhymes
For someone who's no longer miiinee

Watched you turn your head
Listened when you said
I love you, I love you til you're dead
N when your eyes met mine
Your gaze weakened my spine
I tried to leave all that you said behind

Now i roam, i roam, i roam
Now i roam i roam i roam

When i could not go home
It was you who kept me warm
Curled in blankets high up on the slide
Where my past n my present collide
There we sat in my childhood park
Spilled our feelings out into the dark

N now i roam, i roam, i roam
Now i roam i roam i roam
Now i roam i roam i roam
On my own on my own on my own

I gde shi ti moya zvesda?
Mne tak odenoka bez tebya
I gde shi ti moya zvesda?
Mne tak odenoka bez tebya

~*translation*~
And where are you my star?
I feel so lonesome without you

Now i roam i roam i roam
Now i roam i roam i roam
now i roam i roam i roam
on my own on my own on my own...."
Track Name: White Nights
"We went out at night time
Air filled with excitement
And the sky was a blank white sheet
Spread out

We were walkin walkin walkin in the park
Haven't seen you for so long
We sang old familiar songs
All sad feelings were dissolved for now
For now....

Can you imagine being in my place
Is what my father's brother said
That's exactly what happened
Now that my uncle's dead

We were walkin walkin walkin in the park
Haven't seen you for so long
We sang old familiar songs
All sad feelings were dissolved for now
For now...

And i wear everything on my sleeve
Most of my thoughts n all my beliefs
N i know all family history's suffer through some grief
the thought that mine could still be happy
Comes as a relief
OooOooo

And when i'm over here i miss being over there
But when i go back there i know that i'll miss bein here
With youuuuu

In these whiiite nights
We'll walk until we're hard to reach
Until we're outta sight
In these whiiite nights
Y'showed me how the bridges part
N found your way into my heart
In these white niights
These whiite niiights
These white nights..
These white nights..."
Track Name: Land's End
"Well i got everywhere n nowhere to go
Everywhere n no where to go
N i got everyone n no one to see
Cause everyone n no one ever sees me....

So i go out n make a home at the beach
Hope someday my dreams will be within reach
but for now the dirt n leaves are my bed
a comforting place to lie my tired head down
my tired head down...

I found a place where i could hide
I found a place where i could watch the tide go by
Ocean ripples clear my mind
Ocean ripples suspend time
Ocean ripples clear my mind
Ocean ripples suspend.....
Tiiiiiimmmmeeee

OoooOoooo OooOooOooo
OoooOooOo OooOoooOoo
OoooOOooOo Ooooooo
Ooo OooOOOo oooOOooo

These moments are as fleeting as the pictures in the sand
When the ocean waves wash them away
These moments are as fleeting as the pictures in the sand
When the ocean waves wash them away

N i got everywhere n no where to go
Got every where n no where to go
I got everyone n no one to see
Cause everyone n no one ever sees me
Oh no no....

Oh sometimes,
I lay back down
N sometiiimes i sing out loud
Well i know yknow we know that it ain't right
Yet we all just say that's
The way of life
Oh no no...."
