Track Name: Space
Shannon I need space
Shadows on the sun
Somewhere beyond
The horizon

Shannon I need space
Constellations in your eyes
Rocket piercing periwinkle
Skies

What we know
Can never answer
Wherefore or why

We need to see other people
From up above the clouds
The storm is passing far below
Above the moistened ground

What we know
Can never answer
Wherefore or why

Shannon I need a break
Like the space between
The sun and the days

Shannon I need space
Orion rises in the east
His sword is hanging hunting
For a feast

What we know
Can never answer
Wherefore or why

What we know
Can never answer
Wherefore or why

What we know
Can never answer
Wherefore or why

What we know
Can never answer
Wherefore or why
Track Name: Culinary Frustration
You smell edible
Delectable
Melt in my my mouth
Your sweet flavors masticate-able

Or temptation for
Dietary limitation
Uh!
Culinary frustration, frustation

You've got an old-fashioned stove
Do you cook?
How can you with your nose
In that recipe book!

How can I hear
If you don't scream it out loud?
How can you taste
If you don't put it in your mouth?

Smell your bread a burnin'
Better turn your damper down
If you don't have a damper
Better turn them buns around, around

You've got an old-fashioned stove
Do you cook?
How can you with your nose
In that recipe book!

Steam on the window
Water to a boil
Steam on the window
Water to a boil

The pages of your book
Arch and curl
You arch and curl

You've got an old-fashioned stove
Do you cook?
How can you with your nose
In that recipe book!

You've got an old-fashioned stove
Do you cook?
How can you with your nose
In that recipe book!
Track Name: Little Wooden Box
Little wooden box with string
She likes it when I sing
Her name is Harmony
She's a funny little thing

Little wooden box that works
I get up and write a verse
She hangs from my neck while we rehearse
She's got a tight grip on her purse
Things could be a whole lot worse
Relief feels better right after it hurts

Little wooden box is fun
Bridge busted in the sun
Her veneer cracked and run
I put a little bit of paint on
She's got that cool look goin' on

Little wooden box that goes
I get out and play a show
When I strike she lets it blow
Faster than the fastest arrow
Fired from the strongest bow
Sweeter than the song of the sweetest sparrow
Open my heart and let it flow

Little wooden box with strings
Entertainment without machines
Human beings being human beings
Honey if I am the king
That makes you the queen
Track Name: Breaking Up
We find so many ways
To show that we don't care
When the time has come for leaving
We find each other here

We do each other wrong
And that ain't right
We like to love
We love to fight

Sharing fun is a good thing
Making love makes my heart sing
Loving you is the worst thing
I do

You say there's more mind
In the heart than in the head
Your mind must be unfeeling
My heart my be brain dead

We do each other wrong
That ain't right
We like to love
We love to fight

Sharing fun is a good thing
Making love makes my heart sing
Loving you is the worst thing
I do
Track Name: Television
When television lost its potent
Power of mass hypnosis
We logged on with likes for friends
Who shared and therefore showed us


Humans glowed at night.
Our common eye, a cloud in the sky

A coiled serpent lay at the
Base of every tree
Branches to the
World-wide interlocking leaf

At its roots a network pulsed like
Mycorizal electricity

We are free
When we choose to be

We held a knife pressed to
The belly of a beast
Its face in a coercive state
Numbers in its feet

Once ready we built much more helpful
Mythological entities

We are free
When we choose to be

Our electric sheep shit petroleum eat the grass beneath our feet

We are free
When we choose to be
We are free
When we choose to be
Track Name: We Make the Path By Walking
When the nations saw
That the path behind, warfare,
Would no longer serve them,
They gathered together

No hay camino
No hay camino
Se hace camino al andar

No hay camino
No hay camino
Se hace camino al andar

"There is no path forward for us"
They proclaimed
"There is no path for us,
But when we set our first step down
The path will form."

No hay camino
No hay camino
Se hace camino al andar

No hay camino
No hay camino
Se hace camino al andar

We are a nation of many nations at war
We must gather together
And admit that this war
Is not working

No hay camino
No hay camino
Se hace camino al andar

No hay camino
No hay camino
Se hace camino al andar

We must gather together and see
There is no path for us
Where we set our feet
The path will form

No hay camino
No hay camino
Se hace camino al andar

No hay camino
No hay camino
Se hace camino al andar

There are more of us than we are aware
And there is no path for us yet
We make the path by walking it
Track Name: Will The Circle Be Unbroken
I was standing
By my window
On a cold and
Cloudy day

When I saw the
Hearse come rolling
Lord to carry my
Mother away

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by lord by and by
There's a better home a waitin'
In the sky lord in the sky

Well I followed
Close behind them
Tried to hold and up
And be brave

But I could not
Bear my sorrows
When they laid her
In the grave

Well I asked
The undertaker
"Undertaker please
Drive Slow.

That body
That you're hauling
I hate
To see her go."

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by lord by and by
There's a better home a waitin'
In the sky lord in the sky
In the sky lord in the sky
