Track Name: E=mc2
Don't go worrying about a thing love,
About a thing love,
As long as you're beside me...

Rest your tired eyes love,
Allow me to hypnotize you,
and set your mind at ease...

As the rain pours down,
We're traveling on by,
Watching the wind blowing through the trees,
along the roadside,

E~I~E~I~E~I~O love,
A~E~I~O~U love,
And sometimes it's why,
Eeny, miny, eeny, menie, miney moe love,
M~O~E, MOE love,
I love you...

As the rain pours down,
E~I~E~I~E~I~O,
And the wind blows through the trees,
A~E~I~O~U...

Don't go worrying about a thing love,
About a thing love,
As long as your beside me.
Track Name: béni
Tu êtes tel mon beau,
You are so beautiful,
comment allez-vous?
How are you so beautiful?

The moment I first heard your voice,
It was like angels singing,
Pourquoi? Qu'est-ce que c'est?

Pardon moi,
But you seem to have stumbled across my heart,
du ma béni,
You were brought to life from my sweetest dreams...

The moment that our lips first met,
It was like drinking the stars,
The moment that our lips first met,
It was like drinking the stars.
Track Name: For Sale
I sold a year of my life for thirty-five thousand dollars,
three hundred and sixty-five days, fifty-two weeks, and nine hours...

To society I gave,
Became a working class slave,
You know I can't recall,
If it was worth it at all,
They all say, "Hey! Welcome to the real world"...

They said it came with great benefits,
They've insured me being confined to this office,
You've gotta wear proper attire,
I'm shopping in thrift stores for clothes by designers...

With my eyes open wide,
I plunged into hell,
The contract I signed,
Asked if my soul was for sale...

They all say, "Hey! Welcome to the real world"...
They all say, "Hey, hey! Welcome to the real world,
I sold a year of my life for thirty-five thousand dollars.
Track Name: The Waltz
I was taken from rags and traded for fools gold,
Sculpted by an artist and cut from a mold,
When he whisked me away with his imagination,
Placed my heart on display like an air loom being pawned...

When weeping turns to pray'n,
And hoping in to dream'n,
That someday a prince will come and rescue me...

When Hearts start a break'n,
Your mind needs some mending,
And the truth reveals you've been living in a fantasy...

I was a court gesture when I played in your game,
I knew that I'd lose my hand in the end,
When I took a gamble,
On something quite fragile,
Believing that you'd somehow change...
Track Name: Chick-a-dee
You were ripe for the pick'n,
Ah finger good lick'n,
When I laid eyes on you...

How was I to know that,
You'd taste sour before then,
Before the morning due...

Don't go callin' me your honey bun, sugar pie, sweet pea,
That kind of talk is cheap,
You're a habit I've been fix'n to quit boy,
There ain't nothin' you got that this woman here needs...

You were such a shoe in,
Like a bird that flew in,
To my wide open coop...

Oh my, how your feathers did tickle,
That's how I ended up in this here pickle,
Now I'm a cracker drownin' in your soup....

Don't go call'n me your honey bun, sugar pie, sweet pea,
That kind of talk is cheap, cheap, cheap,
You're a habit I've been fix'n to quit boy,
There ain't nothin' you've got that this woman here needs,
Your kind of lov'n ain't somethin' this woman here needs.
Track Name: Life's Playground
No matter how many ways I show you,
You'll never know just how I feel,
Loves become an unsolvable equation,
We're caught spinning in circles on this Ferris wheel...

Will we ever grow out of this faze,
That we have staged,
On life's playground?

It's a jungle gym,
of mixed emotions,
I keep tumbling down, down, down, down, down, down...

My heart it aches with each passing day,
This act has reached it's final number,
It's a hurt that can't simply be kissed away,
As the curtain is drawn I can't help but wonder...

If we'll ever grow out of this faze,
That we have staged,
On life's playground,
It's a jungle gym,
Of mixed emotions,
I keep tumbling down, down, down, down, down, down...

No matter how many ways I show you,
You'll never know just how I feel, no, no, no, no, no...
Track Name: Quack, quack
You pull in to town roll out the back of your wagon,
Do a song and dance sell'n the latest concoction,
One hundred percent guaranteed...

Ya tip your hat and give me a wink,
Whisper in my ear, "Have some of this to drink,
It's the end all be all cure for disease"...

Doctor, doctor, What do you take me for?
Am I a patient or a customer going through a revolving door?
Doctor, doctor, is this a hospital or a candy store,
How come your getting rich, when we're all sick and poor?

My head it hurt, my tummy ached,
All over my body my joints felt pain,
So I went to the doctor and here's what he said,
Take some of this and a whole lot of that,
Make an appointment cause you'll have to come back,
Fill your prescription on the way home...

Doctor, doctor, what do you take me for?
Am I a patient or a customer,
going through a revolving door?

Oh, oh, oooh! Doctor, doctor, is this a hospital or a candy store?
How come you're gett'n rich while we're all sick and poor?
How come you're gett'n rich while we're all sick dying and poor?!
Track Name: All Roads Lead to Here
Dusty roads and cobwebs,
Rattle snake holes and sunsets,
Still I belong to you,
Still I return to you...

Broken hearts left behind,
Scattered throughout the desert confined,
Sill I belong to you,
Still I return to you...

Once glimpse of her beauty will leave you enticed,
You'll be riding the pale horse till you lose your...
Still I belong to you,
Still I return to you...
(Salvador) Solo la parte, solo la parte de mi...

Still I belong to you,
Still I return to you.
Track Name: Distant Melody
When you told me you loved me,
I knew you loved me a whole lot,
but I couldn't be somethin' that I'm not...

So walk on, walk on, walk on by,
I'll remember you a glimmer in my eye,
And all that I might have had.

What I could'a, I could'a, I could'a got,
If only I hadn't of given you up,
but now you're just a distant melody,
Oh now you're just a distant melody.
Track Name: State of Mind
Sometimes I'm 'a cry'n on the inside, boo-hoo,
Where nobody can see,
When all the while,
On the outside you'll see a smile,
For a clown is what's become of me, tee-hee...

My daddy he once told me,
That happiness is a state of mind,
My granny she sure done showed me,
Step by step things will all work out in time...

My heart it is ah break'n,
And it feels like there's no end in sight,
That's when I choose to hide myself away,
And give up on this so called life...

But my daddy he once told me,
That happiness is a state of mind,
And my granny she sure done showed me,
Step by step things will all work out in time,
Eventually everything will be just fine.
