NEW YEAR
We have come for light
Wholly, we have come for light
It's true
Ahhh
I am the sun
I am the new year
I am the rain
I am the sun
I am the new year
I'm the way home [2x]
I am the rain
I am the new year
I am the sun
I am the rain
I am the new year
I'm the way home,
I'm the way
It's true


CANNONBALL
Ah-ooh [6x]
Spitting in a wishing well
Blown to hell, crash
I'm the last splash
Oooh [4x]
I know you, little libertine
I know you're a real koo koo
Hey now, hey now, ...
Want you, koo koo, cannonball [2x]
In the shade [4x]
I know you, little libertine
I know you're a cannonball
I'll be you're whatever you want
The bong in this Reggae Song
Hey now, hey now, ...
Want you, Koo Koo, Cannonball [2x]
In the shade [4x]
Spitting in a wishing well
Blown to hell... crash
I'm the last splash
I'll be you're whatever you want
The bong in this Reggae Song
Hey now, hey now, ...
Want you, Koo Koo, Cannonball [2x]
In the shade [4x]


INVISIBLE MAN
He's the Invisible Man
Count the bubbles in your hand
The southern skies
And the summer sites
That's all that's left behind
The skies, and a sweet caress
He's the Invisible Man
Catch him if you can
You're nowhere in sight (just imagine that)
Nothing excites you (baby, that's a fact)
Open your eyes
Look and you will find
That's all that's left behind... the skies
And a sweet caress
The skies, the sights
And a sweet caress
He's the Invisible Man
Catch him if you can
That's all that's left behind... the skies
And a sweet caress
The skies, the sights
And a sweet caress
He's the Invisible Man
Catch him if you can


NO ALOHA
No bye, no aloha
Gone with a rock promoter
A rock promoter
I know, I saw
And now may die
Ohhh all the treats
Saw it on the wall
Motherhood means mental freeze
(Freezeheads)
No aloha
I know, I saw
And now may die
No bye, no aloha
Gone with a rock promoter
A rock promoter
I know, I saw
And now may die

Raw: where the shot leaves me gagging for the arrow


DO YOU LOVE ME NOW?
If I saw you now
Could I look in your eyes?
Do you think of me
Like I dream of you?
Do you wish you were here
Like I wish I was with you?
You've loved me before
Do you love me now?
Does love ever end
When two hearts have torn away?
Or does it go on
And beat strong anyway?
You've loved me before
Do you love me now?
Come back to me right now!
C'mon c'mon come back to me right now!
C'mon c'mon come back to me right now!
C'mon c'mon come on!
You've loved me before
Do you love me now?
You've loved me before
Do you love me now?


FLIPSIDE
(Instrumental)


I JUST WANNA GET ALONG
We were rich once
Before your head exploded
Imagine doing just what the Big Bang did
The whole world
Knew it was loaded
Wave bye-bye 'cause it ain't ever coming down now
I just wanna get along [2x]
I look up
The heads fly over
I see a boy I know: his hair's on fire
The whole world I discovered
If you're so special why aren't you dead
I just wanna get along [3x]
Wave bye-bye 'cause it ain't never coming down
I just wanna get along [3x]


MAD LUCAS
Idiots & palsied
Blink in corners we leave
Know you like to be seen
Moral insanities
Arise, wash your face
From cinder and soot
You're a nuisance
And I Don't like Dirt
Tale of cities
Hermit of Redcoat's green
Hermit of Redcoat's green
Open Sesame
Eternal Providence
Open Sesame


DIVINE HAMMER
I'm just looking
Just looking for a way around
It disappears this near
You're the rod I'm water
I'm just looking for the divine hammer
One divine hammer [2x]
I'm just looking for one divine hammer
I'd bang it all day
Oh the carpenter goes bang
Bang bang
I'm just looking for the divine hammer
One divine hammer [2x]
I'm just looking for a faith
Waiting to be followed
It disappears this near
You're the rod I'm water
I'm just looking for one divine hammer
One divine hammer
Divine hammer


S.O.S.
(Instrumental)


HAG
Hag! Coastal cut-throat!
You dirty switch,
You're on again
All night, all night, all night
Under the stars
Under their light
All over the girl
Only looks bright
You're just like a woman
Hag
You're just like a woman
You're on again
But some...times
Under the stars
Under their light
You're everything right
You're on again!
Under the stars
Under their light
All right
All right


SAINTS
I like all the different people
I like sticky everywhere
Look around, you bet I'll be there!
Hot metal in the sun
Pony in the air
Sooey and saints at the fair
Saints alive you're saying
Walk in ... squares
The hid are out, out for the year
It's a lot of face
A lot of crank air
Eroding around here
Summer's ready
Summer is ready when you are
I like all the different people
I like every kind of fair
In the crowd, you bet I'll be there!
Walkin' around
Going nowhere
Seeing Sooey and saints at the fair
Summer is ready when you are [2x]
Summer's ready
Summer is ready when you are
Summer's ready
Summer is ready when you are
It's a lot of face, crank air
Walking ... squares
In the sun
Summer is ready when you are


DRIVIN' ON 9
Drivin' on nine
You could be a shadow
Beneath the street-light
Behind my home
Drivin' on nine
I sure miss you
Past the motels
Lookin' at the pines
Drivin' on nine
Lookin' for one-thirty Maybe I passed it
Go another mile
Drivin' on nine [2x]
Drivin' on nine
I'll sure look pretty
In Carson City
Walkin' down the aisle
Drivin' on nine
Does daddy have a shutgun?
He said he'd never need one
Go another mile
Drivin' on nine
Drivin' on nine
Lookin' out my window sill
Wonderin' if I want you still
Wonderin' what's mine
Drivin' on nine [3x]
