Track Name: Intro/Change
Speak or be forgotten don’t hold peace so song
these string are not broken, these keys hold strong

Cause everything will fade we can not stay the same everything will change and only memories will remain

Once, but not forever I’m going, goodbye

Music is in the distance here the notes as they die

Cause everything will fade we can not stay the same everything will change and only memories will remain

Long time ago we sang the same song
life is leaving catch up before it’s gone

Cause everything will fade we can not stay the same everything will change and only memories will remain
Track Name: Continuum
Space and time are not around when you curve you bring me down

when you go so fast you start to slow but before you stop you start to go

this interval is equal to the speeding changing time and diminishing space

like when

we got diplomas and skipped town you got married and stayed around and I moved away

we got into fights, but made amends promised ourselves that we’d stay friends and try to keep in touch

but we don’t talk like we used to
Track Name: Imagination
my grease can is an empty Pabst the mice always escape the traps in my place

move stuff just to take a shower gonna pick you up in an hour or two

we walked through the park at night that flashlight gave us such a fright and we skittered off like teenagers at a party

so, i said ‘let’s see a movie’ and you said that would be groovy let’s go

then after the film was done you said you wanted to run in the rain

we got home soaking wet i’m so glad that we met

oh wait! we didn’t!
it was all just my imagination
Track Name: We Don't Hide
Went to the park with a couple of Pabst we smoked a spliff and we tried to relax but there were other people in Cliff Park but we still got fucked up and played the uke in the dark

Me and Willy are just a couple of young punks we’re both stoners and we’re fucking drunks he’s an alcoholic and I starve for my art it’ll be awhile before we part

stayed passed out at Willy’s place wicked hangover, splashing water in my face but he’s sink’s clogged and his kitchen is fucked but it doesn’t matter cause we’re all fucked up

Me and Willy and the kids from the hop this is how we live and we’ll never stop live in the moment, live for today no time for tomorrow, that’s what we say
Track Name: Poison
Cut my skin, to the bone tag me, brand me, make me your own cut my skin, to the bone

break my heart, from my chest There’s a poison on your breath break my heart, from my chest

Ink me, drink me, it’s all the same I’m the voice inside your brain ink me, drink me, it’s all the same

I’m the poison in the air I’m the reason you don’t care I’m the cause of your mistakes I’m at fault that you’re a fake!

Cut my skin, to the bone tag me, brand me, make me your own cut my skin, to the bone
Track Name: Jason Plays the Drums
Free base’n Clariten in my drummer’s room not a knife hit, just some fire and a spoon getting fucked up on alergy meds just so this pollen doesn’t get to his head

Skateboarding on his wooden kitchen floor Hey it’s Darryl! Comin in the kitchen door Josh is late cause he works far away his parents own a giant house were lobster jaw likes to play

He’s got a dog named Jerry, she’s a fucking retard move a remote and she’ll run in the yard and bite the tree and hang on with her teeth cause she thinks it’s filled with squirrels and beasts from beneath

Free base’n Clariten in my drummer’s room not a knife hit, just some fire and a spoon getting fucked up on alergy meds just so this pollen doesn’t get to his head
Track Name: Wine & Cigarettes
Over coat, so dasing; his suit, well pressed confidently striding, he’s so finely dressed

her skin, like silk; so soft, so smooth her eyes, like fire; nothing to lose

Wine and cigarettes

big business meeting, he holds the floor seeing her passing, throws open the door not in a hurry, nowhere to go grabs her attention, let’s start the show

Meeting on rooftops, deep in shadows what they are doing, nobody knows candle lit diner, there’s ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ as the light flickers, there is applause


Curtains closing, bow with grace as everyone’s leaving, one last embrace

Wine and cigarettes
Track Name: Kava Wheaties
So we’re skating around Anthony bounced off the ground he broke his collar bone while we were long boarding

So I took him to a hospital but they were fucking closed so I said ‘that’s bullshit!’ so we went somewhere else

So we went to Sacred Heart like the one on TV and we sat in the lobby until I had to leave

So he got examined and he got some pills and now it’s two months before he can bomb hills

bomb hills

While I was at the show almost got in a fight and I went to the hospital and Anthony, he was alright

Went to Taco Bell to get us some food but his card was rejected, they said it’s no good

and I was complaining that the lady was a bitch but even though we couldn’t pay they still gave us food

then we went home and he was kinda stoned I was kinda tipsy and we ate kava weaties

kava weaties

he was kinda stoned and I was kinda tipsy
