Track Name: Penthouse
i roll up to the penthouse
lie out on the blue couch
watching all the clouds swirl by like kaleidoscopes
got an old soul but it isn't done yet, naw
we're just getting starting here
i roll up to the penthouse
looking for a new friend
watching all the girls swirl by like kaleidoscopes
kinda half kicked but it isn't done yet, naw
we're just getting starting here

got a jetpack under my arm
gonna fly to skylab
with my patron saint and my pretty pretty princess
lowcut sophomores in the crystal chamber
making sounds like pleasure
i don’t know them but they all know me

i roll up to the penthouse
lie out on the blue couch
watching all the clouds swirl by like kaleidoscopes
got an old soul but it isn't done yet, naw
we're just getting starting here
i roll up to the penthouse
looking for a new friend
watching all the girls swirl by like kaleidoscopes
kinda half kicked but it isn't done yet, naw
we're just getting starting here

everyone's gonna be there
mr smith, dr b, benji b, katieb, jess b, j-frey
j-bark, k-rock, steveclark, herb and erb and the saraheses

i roll up to the penthouse

watching all the clouds swirl by like kaleidoscopes
got an old soul but it isn't done yet, naw
we're just getting starting
Track Name: Real Life / Real Time
drove six hours on the turnpike
for one more cigarette with you
lost the muffler outside breezewood
i'm coming fast, i'm coming loud

maybe we're looking for
something we thought we knew
when we thought we knew what to look for
maybe we never found
everything left to find

(found you a hat at a thrift shop but it looks good on me
so i kept it)

if we end up at your apartment
you might just help me burn it down
or make a bed out on the old green couch
blankets someone's grandma made
and my second favorite pillow

and you say wow this is nice
feels like how it used to be
back in the day
before all we had to talk about
was how things back in the day
used to be

and i say what happened to us
and you say happening, we're always happening, que sera sera
and you take a deep breath, hold it behind your eyes
and let it go

real life
in real time
real life in real time
real life
in real time
real life in real time

drove six hours on the turnpike
for one more cigarette with you
wind the windows down
turn the volume up
is there gas in the car
yeah.

i met the devil on the corner of bates and atwood street
traded him my immortal soul
for an old guitar, a bucket of deep fried chicken,
some tennessee opium, and a velvet print of francisco pizzarro
i wrote ethereal songs of love and life and girls and you
trying to find some love in this life with a girl like you
and now i found it

i like it

real life
in real time
real life in real time
real life
in real time
real life in real time
real life
in real time
real life in real time
Track Name: Zelda
stonewall jackson
civil war general
got shot in the back
by his own men
now he's buried
in lexington, virginia
bout a half a mile
from robert e lee

robert e lee
when he lost the civil war
became the president
of a small virgina college
used to be called
george washington college
now they call it
washington and lee

zelda wants what zelda gets
and zelda gets three hundred dollars
she gets to keep seventy five dollars

new rock club
weird part of town
local band
turned up too loud
where's all the people who look like me
where's all the people who think like me
everybody here dances like a penguin
everybody here plays with their hair
everybody here plays with their new phone
everybody here dances like charlie brown

zelda wants what zelda gets
and zelda gets three hundred dollars
she gets to keep seventy five dollars

when i was back in college
i dated a crack whore
an actual crack whore
for five or six months
met her at a party
bummed a smoke and told her she was pretty
took me back to her place
showed me her tomatoes
and we ditched all our classes
to go the park
to lie in the grass
and look up at the clouds
and she was pretty cool
and she was great in bed
and it never even mattered
that i had no crack

domine deus
rex caelestis
deus pater
omnipotens
interdum nos
planto erroris
interdum erroris
es emundo

this one’s for you
you could've had it if you wanted it
but you never asked me for it
so i kept it for myself
sometimes you’re so awesome
i want to shout it from a mountain
sometimes it's too good
to do anything but feel

zelda wants what zelda gets
and zelda gets three hundred dollars
she gets to keep seventy five dollars

zelda wants what zelda gets
and zelda gets three hundred dollars
she gets to keep seventy five dollars

Track Name: Sailor's Warning
the day bob dylan came to bethlehem
played this wheels on fire
absolutely sweet marie
i stayed home, washed my clothes for the morning
it was november
seven days before thanksgiving

red skies in the morning
sailor's warning
got up too early, drank black coffee
crawled back into bed with you

and the light came in
where the curtains weren't so there
and your skin was white like an angel
and you leaned in close
whispered in my ear
today
is the day
the world will end

god knows we try
god knows that we try
to have a good time, baby
have a good time, baby
grainsquall undertow
queen of the pyramids
mathematic atheist
crucifix between your breasts

and the light came in
where the curtains weren't so there
and your skin was white like an angel
and you leaned in close
whispered in my ear
today
is the day
the world will end

the day bob dylan came to bethlehem
played this wheels on fire
absolutely sweet marie
i stayed home
it was november
seven days before thanksgiving

and the light came in
where the curtains weren't so there
and your skin was white like an angel
and you leaned in close
whispered in my ear
today
is the day
the world will end
Track Name: Mahogany
said i'd write love songs for you
if all of the good ones aren’t written already
and it's you and me
you and me
you and me
the air is so thick
you're breathing so heavy

and it's hot in this old place tonight
i'm going to kiss from your neck to your shoulder
wherever you are
is where i want to be

someday i'll get around, i'll get around to it
someday i'll get around when i feel like i can
sweet queen victoria keeping me on the bench
sweet queen victoria keeping me down

but it's hot in this old place tonight
i'm going to kiss from your neck to your shoulder
wherever you are
wherever you are
wherever you are
is where i want to be
where i want to be
where i want to be
where i want to be
where i want to be

let's make a deal, miss candy jones
miss six stroke engine, miss poison lipstick
one kiss on top of the ferris wheel
when it all stops it all stops it all stops
it all stops

but it's hot in this old place tonight
i'm going to kiss from your neck to your shoulder
wherever you are
wherever you are
wherever you are
wherever you are
is where i want to be
where i want to be
where i want to be
where i want to be
Track Name: When / If
maybe i'll wake up next to you
maybe i'll wake up and you're right there
five in the morning is too early to wake up
drink some water, pet some cats, go back to bed
next to you

the worst part of my day
is when i wake up
and i gotta go to work
and you can stay in bed
but i can't
gotta find a flashlight, gotta get a shower

gotta catch the bus, gotta go downtown
gotta get some sausage biscuit sandwiches for breakfast
gotta do some work, drink coffee, do work, drink coffee, do work
read some blogs, drink some green tea, eat some goldfish crackers
eat some more goldfish crackers

and when i get to leave
i take the first bus out of town that takes me home
where you is
and you're cookin’ dinner
mah favorite dinner
noodles, sauce, and meat

and we break out the big red pillow
break open some big red wine
and my time with you
that's my favorite time
that's my favorite time

and then we fall asleep and i have some crazy dreams
but i don't remember them in the morning
and there's a cat sleeping on my head, and a cat drinking all my water
cause they know a good place
is a good place

maybe i'll wake up next to you
maybe i'll wake up and you're right there
and 'll go back to bed
maybe i'll go back to bed
go back to bed
next to you

(i'd like that very much)
Track Name: Tomorrow
somedays all your friends are busy
somedays no one calls you back
somedays are for beer and smokin’
somedays there ain't nothing wrong with that

somedays all you do is sit around
sit around
go outside for a cigarette

tomorrow
will be different
tomorrow
will be different

all the hangers-on are getting bored dusting the museum
me, i never been better
maybe tell em when you see em

somedays all your friends are ditching
someday you go out like you came in
someday you won't feel so tired
someday real life can begin

somedays getting out of bed ain’t easy
somedays are just for staying in bed
and there ain't nothing wrong with that

tomorrow
will be different
tomorrow
will be different
tomorrow
will be different
tomorrow
will be different

tomorrow
will be different
tomorrow
will be different
tomorrow
will be different
tomorrow
will be different
