Track Name: Valley of the Sun
I come from the valley of the sun,
To be the passionate one to be the passionate one,
To the shores of California where the girls and boys might warn ya,
Just to run, yeah they'll say just to run,

I slither through each morning disregarding all these warnings,
Urging ghosts and goblins out from the floor,
Cause only scary ones like me with skeletons they need to feed,
Will follow through and bother asking for more,

Ooooh...
Ooooh...

I trip and I fall into the radio hall,
Where the nervous ones discover themselves,
And all the jaded ones cry and tell their bitter selves lies,
That they've got years of life left on the shelves,

I trickle on down to the burial ground where the lost are all found,
And the souls in their mounds all resound with the sound,
Of ground down memorabilia, and feel ya,
And desecrate the ones who get near ya,

So you gotta get away from their unfortunate malaise,
Or your songs will not play will not play will not play will not play will not play will not play will not play...

Ooooh...
Ooooh...

(repeat)
All the ghouls and goblins come outta the floor...

I come from the valley of the sun,
To be the passionate one to be the passionate one,
To the shores of California where the girls and boys might warn ya,
Just to run, yeah they'll say just to run,

I slither through each morning disregarding all these warnings,
Urging ghosts and goblins out from the floor,
Cause only scary ones like me with skeletons they need to feed,
Will follow through and bother asking for more...
Track Name: Animals Crying
I hear you animals crying,
I hear your indomitable woes,
I hear your papal gods lying,
I hear your backroom door close, oh no,

I'll take this moment just to tell you,
(Just to tell you,)
That I think we're both in the wrong,
(We're both in the wrong,)
And then I'll call you just to sell you,
(Just to sell you,)
And in three years then we'll belong,

Oh-oh,
Oh no,
I've grown,
Too old,

Oh-oh,
Oh no,
I'm bought,
You're sold,

I hear your excuses flowing,
I hear that you're prepared to lose,
I hear that you think you're all knowing,
I'm here to tell you the bad news,

I'll take this moment just to tell you,
That I think we're both in the wrong,
And then I'll call you just to sell you,
And in three years then we'll belong,

Oh-oh,
Oh no,
I've grown,
Too old,

Oh-oh,
Oh no,
I'm bought,
You're sold,

Mixing all this information
Just to hear your own elation,
Kill the man who takes dictation,
Oh my Lord a violation,

As the ship prepares a landing
Take some time to do some sanding,
Midst the glut of apprehending,
Violence seems to do the mending,

I can swim but might be drowning,
While the trumpet call is sounding,
My ego can take a pounding,
Violins and harps resounding,

Further into my illusion,
You can feel the stark confusion,
Nothing but your own conclusion,
Blank blue sky to play the blues in,

(All you animals all you dirty animals, all you animals all you dirty animals...)

I hear you crying, I hear you,
I hear you crying, I hear you,
I hear you crying, I hear you,
I hear you crying, I hear you,
I hear you crying, I hear you,
I hear you crying, I hear you...
Track Name: Feelings Underground
You’ve been messin’ round,
Got your feelings underground yeah you,
(You’ve got your feelings,
You’ve got your feelings under,)

Brand new building’s underway,
You signed that God-damn deed today yeah you,
(You’ve got your feelings,
You’ve got your feelings under,)

Spite and malice oft resound;
How dare you make that awful sound round me,
(You’ve got your feelings,
You’ve got your feelings under,)

My friend just crossed the bridge today,
You tore his loving heart away yeah you,
(You’ve got your feelings,
You’ve got your feelings under,)

You’ve got your feelings underground,
You’ve got your feelings underground,
You’ve got your feelings underground,
You’ve got your feelings underground,

You’ve been messin’ round,
Got your feelings underground yeah you,
Brand new building’s underway,
Signed that God-damn deed today yeah you,
Spite and malice oft resound;
How dare you make that awful sound round me,
My friend just crossed the bridge today,
You tore her loving heart away yeah you,

I don’t want to let these feelings go,
Underneath these million miles of snow,
You’ve been making mountains out of nil,
Why don’t you shed this ersatz in-between and let it all spill?
Track Name: Electric Dawn
Words before romance persuade us to let chance,
Become our emancipated partner,
Come let us make good on ground which we once stood,
Enamored by a now translucent statement,

Words out of love out of fear truth and government,
Penetrate and turn our focus inward,
We strongly resist till our minds start to kiss,
As we make our way outside to greener pastures,

From now until hereafter on,
I’ll smile at your electric dawn,
I love you I love you can’t get enough of you,
And now that you’re gone,
Until you return I’ll long,

Words out of anger cause nothing but pain dear,
And knowing this we still continue onward,
Eye-lines mistaken by truth which we lay in,
The knowledge that misguided we will get there,

From now until hereafter on,
I’ll smile at your electric dawn,
I love you I love you can’t get enough of you,
And now that you’re gone,
Until you return I’ll long,

Still, still, my heart betrays my mind with all these words,
Fill, fill, these days and hours with time to make this work,
Till, till, I realize our time’s already up,
Kill, kill, this sign that what I’m thwarting might give up,

Words before parting prevent wars from starting,
But only in our minds will it be painless,
Violence expanding regret notwithstanding,
While veiled in bliss we permeate this moment...
Track Name: Do As You're Told
I'm beaten burnt and badly bruised,
You know it hurts so much I really don't know what to do,
I'm getting tired here and I don't know where to go,
I got a feeling that I'm losing all my self control,

I'm looking round and round again,
Something hits me on the head and then I'm... oh... oh... I'm in it then,
You gotta know your way,
Something hits me in the head and now it's all a daze,

Your love affair with choice,
You better cross your t's and dot your i's or maybe just make some noise,

Oh will you do as you're told?
Oh will you do as you're told?

And now I'm up here on the stage,
Product of different generation and a different age,
I wanna make a few mistakes,
Have a couple slices and still eat the cake,

Just remember that you've got a choice,
Slice it all to pieces, cut it down and then you grab your voice,

Oh will you do as you're told?
Oh will you do as you're told?

I know sublime's so hard to find when you're a fool and you come easy,
Tense up from your head down to your toes,
But it's your fate to resonate with all the greats who weren't so sleazy,
Sit back relax and let the music go,

Oh no,
Now hit me,

(drum break)

They'll try to take away your soul,
(Not my soul,)
Try to take away your ever lovin' self control,
(I've got no control,)
They'll try to take away your name,
(What's my name?)
They'll try to take away all your favorite video games,
(And Lord knows you don't want that... do ya?)

Oh will you do as you're told?
Oh will you do as you're told?
Oh will you do as you're told?
Oh will you do as you're told?

Come on let's make a little noise,
Remember guys,
It's just us boys,

Oh, oh oh oh oh oh... Uh-oh... Uh-oh...

I said sublime's so hard to find when you're a fool and you come easy,
Tense up from your head down to your toes,
But it's your fate to resonate with all the greats who weren't so sleazy,
Sit back, relax and let the music go...
