Track Name: Belmont
on friday night i took the family, a beach delight, the youngest rides for free
we all ate junk and played the games that sing, the sun went down, there was sand in everything, hold tight to those memories, hang on because they’re gone too fast
hang ten with the surfer scene, was belmont just a dream? hang on to that safety bar
“hold tight to me daddy please”,you yell the lights all blur as one
you raise your arms and scream,we left that night all dizzy with the joy
felt kind of sick but the kids slept in the car,if you’re gonna hit it, then hit it mean
a jackpot’s waiting in the video game, yeah go ahead and jump, shout out loud and fists get pumped, are you ready to dance and sing karaoke to the latest thing
the ferris wheel and the “ride of death” and don’t forget the tilt-o-whirl, oh yes
we did not go back again for many years,the fun was like the sun that disappeared
yeah, when they say “kick it” hard in the crouch, don’t mean nothin’ unless you turn it up a notch
hey thats bitchin dad you’re pretty cool for an old old man, i bet you kicked ass in your day
they didn’t know i stayed away from anything social or remotely cool
they didn’t know that I didn’t rule a thing, hold on to those feelings please,hang on because its gone too fast hang ten with those memories
was belmont just a dream?hey kids here’s 50 bucks go ahead and get it, get it good
don’t regret because you probably would… get it
Track Name: Cicada ( with Greg Gray )
the darkness is my castle,and the depth of the moon’s reflection is my only joy,cicada, oh happy cicada
on a bed of earth you die, drunk with light,and for seventeen years i wondered by and by,the darkness is my castle
and the depth of the moon’s reflection is my only joy,compassion used to be my plaything,but when did i get so serious?,when did I lose perspective,just tell me why, the joke is always on the joker, and now a tear falls from his eye
the punch line can’t always be predicted, but it cannot be denied, the joke is always on the joker, and now a tear falls from his eye, the punch line can’t always be predicted,and i hear your tired sigh, the light is like a spider, it crawls over the edges of the snow, it crawls under your eyelids, and spreads its webs there, its two webs the webs of your eyes are fastened, to the flesh and bones of you, as to rafters or grass, there are filaments of your eyes,on the surface of the water,and in the edges of the snow, the joke is always on the joker, the punch line can’t always be predicted the darkness is my castle, and the depth of the moon’s reflection is my only joy. let my heart be a cicada
over heavenly fields,let it die singing slow, wounded by the blue sky, and, as it fades,let this woman i foresee
scatter it through the dust with her hands, cicada, oh happy cicada! for you are wounded by invisible swords from the blue
Track Name: Two Hour Rule
i always thought when i got old, i’d be a master of my moods i could handle the inconvenience
i could handle the load, oh no its just the reverse, i had to test and develop a tool called my, my two hour rule when i get stuck on 101my heart beats fast and then I sweat
o’ll take the nearest exit then even if it’s a dead end i make my plans all based on this,the time it takes to get it done, oh no now i’m feeling sick, oh no now it’s no longer cool,i’m nervous and I’m way past the limit of my two hour rule, i’ve got friends and relatives, would like to see me soon, if i could travel at the speed of light
heck, i could visit the moon the truth is that i’m stuck right here now,it doesn’t really matter if it’s traffic
the grocery store or the post office it could be a concert or a comedy show, it could be dinner and a date
the clock is ticking and its getting to the point where my stomach turns and i’m fidgeting, and i can barely wait c’mon i gotta go, i gotta go right now, it’s my two hour rule,the clock is ticking and it’s getting away
it’s my two hour rule, there’s no time left to worry or play it’s my two hour rule i hope you don’t mind if i use my tool it’s my two hour rule i’m reminding you now of my two hour rule
Track Name: Blues Road
blues road they call it i know that road so well, blues road they call it, i know that road so well, i think i need a ticket, the train is coming nowi just bought a ticket to blues road, you know its a place that you go to blues road, you know its a place you gotta go i’m at the station, i’m leaving now can’t be complacent, gotta get out of this town, blues road they call it, I’ve been traveling pretty long, Monterey Road they call it, It’s in each and every song, i think i need a ticket,the train’s about to go, i just bought a ticket, you know where, to blues road, you know its a place that you go, to blues road, you know, its a place you gotta go
i’m at the station i’m leaving now can’t be complacent ,gotta get out of this town, so tired of waiting
gotta take the first step you make the bacon i ain’t finished yet
Track Name: Does It All Continue?
does it all continue? is there a natural end? speed it up and review and then it starts again
somehow it just keeps going like a car full of gas, it just keeps plodding along, but too fast to pass
does it all continue? is there a part that ceases to move? does it all keep going? or is this dance just an empty groove?just keep pushing, don;t ever stop you gotta keep pounding it out
thats the closest thing you have to a meaning, are you meant to linger?past the date thats best
giving god the finger i guess you flunked the test but it all continues
Track Name: Come Around
Wish upon a star, make that wish for somebody else, and that dream might come true, which way did you go? and how much would you give to the world, that might need your love?
when you come around, you come around, i’m going to feel it, then its going to heal me,when you come around, when i look around, i look around, i’m going to see you, then i’m going to feel you
when i look around, wish upon a star ,( then i sense it in the different ways),and pray upon that sound, ( and its not a dream, it doesn’t seem that way, it doesn’t act like that), which way did you go and how much would you give to the world that might need your love? when you come around, you come around, i’m going to feel it, then its going to heal me, when you come around, when i look around, i look around i’m going to see you, then i’m going to feel you,when i look around
and so and so and so and so, i want to think about it, i want to drink it all in,i’m going to bet my life upon it vibrating until the end but there’s no end,there’s no end

there’s only one thing on my mind, and thats a decent explanation, there’s only one thing I can think of, thats my selfish nature rides to my final destination, goodbye i’m leaving,so long i’m going baby,too bad its over,i’m headed to california in the morning,there’s only one thing I can find,in these restless years of searching,thats why I’m leaving it behind,the cause is simple i’m a nomad without any satisfaction,there’s only one thing that I feel now,i’m just a droplet in the rain
i need to find an empty box car and i’m getting on that train, the train thats heading south goodbye i’m leaving, so long i’m going baby, too bad its over,i’m headed to california in the morning, goodbye i’m leaving, so long i’m going baby,too bad its over, i’m headed to the final showdown,i’m headed to my fate decided,i’m headed to a shotgun wedding in the morning
california here i come, california here i come
