Track Name: Ocean = Amazing
Ocean = Amazing

Always amazed by the sounds of the Ocean.
I’m always amazed by the sounds of the Ocean.
It’s got highs and lows,
and upset motions.
I’m always amazed by the sounds of the Ocean.

I’m allll-waaaays.
Allll-waaaays.

They’ve got the cars and the trains and the raging motors.
But not compares to the sounds of the Ocean.
It’s got the highs and the lows,
and the upset motions.
And I’m always amazed by the sounds of the Ocean.

I’m allll-waaaays.
Allll-waaaays.

Up for Hire

Thought you should know I’m up for hire.
There’s hell below so throw me in the fire.
Ya’ll should know this men are liars.
Ya’ll should know this men are lii-aaars.

Turn out the lights.

You mentioned a war but you don’t mention it anymore.
I hate to be disappointed.
Lives spent and minds meant but all we are is only what we seem.
Lives spent and minds meant but all we are is only what we seem.

Turn out the lights.

Oooo-ah-oh-ah-aaaah-oh

Door Scratcher

I hear you calling baby,
I hear you calling out my name.
I hear you pretty baby,
I hear you knocking down my door.
The way it sounds I’ll swear you’ll knock this thing all the way over.

I told you pretty baby one and two don’t,
one and two don’t work.
I told you pretty darling you and me don’t,
you and me don’t work.
so get your things and pack the car and hit the highway.

Aaaaaaah Ahhhh ahhh haaa


(get the hell away)

I told you pretty darling good intentions,
that’ll never due.
I told you pretty baby you owe me no,
you owe me no good.
so kill the act, kiss the dust and the hit the highway.

Aaaaaaah Ahhhh ahhh haaa
Track Name: 99
99

Don’t you recognize,
you were born in the belly of a whale.
it’s no lie,
it’s no fairy tale.

Trust in me,
I will trust in you,
but we will fall.

You want to be the sons of the kind of men
who go around fucking up the this simple land.

Trust in me,
I will trust in you,
but we will fall.

You want some, You want some dirt money?
You want some, You want some dirt money?
Trust in me,
I will trust in you,
but we will fall.

I was born in the shadow of a civil war.
The way were headed man, I swear we are headed for more.

Trust in me,
I will trust in you,
but we will fall.
Track Name: Coast Of Paraguay
Coast of Paraguay

Miles and miles and miles I run to the Coast of Paraguay.
Never see my face again and I’ll never tell you why.
I think I’m alone.
I think I’m alone.

I think I’m alone.
I think I’m Alllll-ooone.

Shiny, shiny boots of pain I prepare them for the war.
Never saw their usefulness so I left them on the shore.
I think you should know,
We can’t come baa-aack.

I think you should know
we can’t come baa-aack.

Never told you how I felt and I’ll told you everything.
Let’s put in a wooden box and we’ll shove it out to sea.
shove it out to sea-aaaa.
shove it out to sea-aa-aaaa.

shove it out to sea.
shove it out to sea-aaaa.

Well I told you a thousand and I’ll tell more,
never a horizon, never a shore.
Well I told you a thousand and I’ll tell more,
never a horizon, never a shore.
Well I told you a thousand and I’ll tell more,
Well I told you a thousand and I’ll tell more.
I think I’m a waste.
I think I’m a waaaa-ste.


You were always merciless,
Merciless on ice.
Let’s put it towards a golden mean,
And we’ll start a brand new life.
We’ll start a new life.
We’ll start a new liiiii-fe.

We’ll start a new life.
We’ll start a new liiiii-fe.

Well I told you a thousand and I’ll tell more,
never a horizon, never a shore.
Well I told you a thousand and I’ll tell more,
never a horizon, never a shore.
Well I told you a thousand and I’ll tell more,
Well I told you a thousand and I’ll tell more.
I think I’m a waste.
I think I’m a waaaa-ste.


Never told you how I felt and I’ll told you everything.
Let’s put in a wooden box and we’ll shove it out to sea.
shove it out to sea-aaaa.
shove it out to sea-aa-aaaa.
