Track Name: Let Me Off The Hook
Frail as a cloud hit by a Ford
Pale as a bulb hanging on a chord
Tired of the line between less and more
Feel like a blade never used and bored
And I’ll be good like I know I should
If you let me off the hook

Don’t let me hang on it
Don’t let me dangle
Cause If I hang on it
I’m gonna strangle
And I’ll be good like I know I should
If you let me off the hook

Time is a thief hate what it took
My life’s a poem in a really sad book
I’m in the kettle if you care to look
Cause I feel like a goose bout to be cooked

If you wanna kill me
Then shoot me like a hound
If I promise to be good
Will you cut me down?

Don’t let me hang on it
Don’t let me dangle
Cause If I hang on it
I’m gonna strangle
And I’ll be good like I know I should
I said I’ll be good like I know I should
If you let me off the hook
Track Name: Hippie Yippee Yuppie Junky
Build me a big bonfire.
Dance with my sleepy tiger.
Feed my jealous monkey
Hippie Yippie Yuppie Junky.

Don't wanna make a mark
just wanna be in the dark
all day.
So sick I'm entitled want my engine
to idle slowly.

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

Won't you thread my needle?
Bad brains but I'm bi-pedal.
Won't you pet my puppy?
Hiippie Yippie Yuppie Junky.

Don't want no righteous people.
Don't want no church and steeple now.
I like my country funky
I want some Chunk Monkey now.
I want it now.

La la la la la la la
Lala la la la la la la la la la la la

Peace love and sweet patchouli
Black jacks and campus stoolies
Bought a car got a house got lucky
Hippie Yippie Yuppie Junky

Don't wanna make a mark
Just wanna be in the dark
all day.
So sick I'm entitled want my engine
to idle slowly
ah so slow
Track Name: Timbuktu Buckaroo
Bricks of mud here comes the flood of tears in tubs
I try to scrub them off but they will not be washed away.
Air balloon rock salt tycoon braves big typhoons but I can’t
live without her even for a single day.

I’m a Timbuktu Buckaroo
but I did not have a clue.
A Timbuktu Buckaroo
and now she’s says we’re through

I once read the Good Book said
“Pride comes before the fall”.
But I could not read the writing on the wall.

I crossed the river to find a camel train.
Roaming the desert I searched in vain.

I’m a Timbuktu Buckaroo
but I did not have a clue.
I’m a Timbuktu Buckaroo
and now I’m telling you.

I once read the Good Book said
“Pride comes before the fall.”
But I could not read the
writing on the wall.
Track Name: It's Not Them It's You
I used to point my finger at everyone.
But making all that bad will killed my fun.
Then a man walked up to me said "son
you don't see but it's true it's not them it's you."

I was confused so I changed my shoes
the old ones were wearing away.
No longer a drone I'm heading for home
I love my new kicks I must say.

People percolating everywhere.
Boiling over under they don't care.
I turned red till I turned blue then he said "son
here's the news it's not them it's you."

I don't want to lose so I changed my views
the old ones just ruined my day.
No longer alone I've found a new home
I love my new digs I must say.
It's not them it's you.
Track Name: Heels On Fire
Draped in curtain jewelry tempting fate up in the sky.
She came down from Hamburg town heels on fire.
Hypnotized Seattle slew you checkered shirts until you die.
On Menlove row still life grows heels on fire.

When you’re thinking bout the pink she takes you to the brink
she looks just like her painting.
Every time she comes you stumble like a bum
she's so fascinating.
Heels on fire.
Track Name: It's Safe Sky King
Bad break bee sting.
High ledge you cling.
It's safe to take off Sky King.
There's no need to bring
a coat a thing.
It's safe to take off
Sky King.

Fly past the Milky Way
and leave behind the crowd.
Sing this song together
and make your mama proud.

Climb fast make rings.
Keep on growing.
It's safe to take off
Sky King.

Blue dot wind stream.
Dreamscape let's sing.
It's safe to take off
Sky King.

And all you honey drippers
raise your voices to the clouds.
Sing this song forever
all together now now now.


No need to bring
a coat a thing.
It's safe to take off
Sky King.

It's safe to take off.
I'ts time to take off
Sky King.
Track Name: I'm Almost Here
Man in the sky don't you love me anymore?
The apple of your eye and rotten to the core.
And so the dies been cast and like a viper in the grass
I slither near. If I disappear then I'm almost here.

My man in the sky some say you're bigger than the rest.
Of all the men in the sky you just may be the best.
I can't explain why the lighting hits the plane
but the shackles are clear. If I disappear
then I'm almost here.

Boxing Ghandi handy feet
kick the monk on mercy street.

I can't explain why the lighting hits the plane
but the shackles are clear. If I disappear
then I'm almost here.
I'm almost here.
Track Name: I've Just Gotta Say
Everyone’s confused.
None of us amused.
We pick a side then divide
lose each other along the way.

Beat the drum kill the bum.
Have we gone insane?
Do anything to be king
well I’ve just gotta say.

There is a light that shines for you
for me and everyone we know.
If we decide to reach inside for love
then love is what will show.

If I become my brother’s keeper
then I am truly digging deeper.
Push the load on up the mountain
no time for all that money counting.

There is a light that shines for you
for me and everyone we know.
If we decide to reach inside for love
then love will surely grow.
La la la la la
