Track Name: The Croakies
Some trouble with my balance
Falling forward in the water, with the Croakies, in the water
And now my gills are revving up
for a quick swim in the water, with the croakies, in the water
ooooh so cold!
but it's feeling sweet and cool, recalibrated
and now i feel my feet turn into fins

The turtle talks to me with care
"these times they are 'a changing
these times they are 'a changing"
And Flion points his fins to where
the sunglow is appearing
the sunglow is appearing
Oooh it's so beautiful!
I'm feeling sweet and cool, recalibrated
Now I see these forces moving in.

Everyone's watching
Everyone's waiting
Everyone's dancing
Everyone's singing!
Li, Li,l-li Li

I might follow currents leading to warmer water
the colony may swim apart
But the stars will always shine in full
and the waves will always crash and grow
It will be so wonderful.

Everything....
Everything is coming into view
Sweet and cool recalibrated
Everything is coming into view....
Track Name: Crayon Colored
From this humble bed, with the blue sheets over my head
I rise to meet you, holy one
Though I have left, I am not yet gone
I can hear crying

And I put my memories, a crayon colored book
On a screen of stars so that all can look
As I pass through the sun's gold rays
I can hear laughing, I can sense joy
I'm one with you

From this humble bed, with the blue sheets over my head
I rise to meet you, fully one
Though I have left, I am not yet gone

And the years will drain like a cold water bath
And your arms reach for the warmth at last
Someone said when you breathed last
you should go.
I'm one with you.
Track Name: Lyp Synching
Fool me once, fool me a second time
You should know us you should know our work
But I'm a dunce, I've been missing lines
Here's a word that we don't think should work

You should leave, no you shouldn't stay
Who'd be here to pump you up tonight?
You're living life you're and advertisement.
But you place the price out of sight!

I was believing you. All of you.

Where's my car? Where's my skinny jeans?
Business has it's ups and downs you see?
You've got your looks, your pretty face
Well ain't it enough to want them to want me.

You know I was lip synching life
Cause I was believing you
You know I was lip synching love
Cause I was believing you
You know I was lip synching it all
Cause I was believing you, all of you.
Track Name: Snorkeling With Obama (A Dream)
Various dream dialogue

I have every word of it, I have every word written down
just in case you come to cop that dream from me

Dialogue

Oh, say where we going?
Take me the center of this dreamscape
Happy time's much more pleasant
in the present landscape
where the kangaroos, the cockatoos, Maya Angelou
all reading from the pages of the National Review.

Come again another night.

We got in the car and left the Italian Villa behind us, turned on the radio and there was some strange progressive folk on.
Coming up we saw the lights of the disco,
I said "Everybody, Let's Go Dancing!"
"Alright!"

I have every word written down.

Wake up honey.
I'll come again another night.
