Track Name: 2 ∑ 1
It's so funny, I'm crying
It's so sad I could laugh
Am I coming or going?
The answer is "yes"
The answer is "no"
The answer is "not yet"
Today is the only day that will ever be
This is the first thing that I see
This day is a gift
That's why we call it the present
This day is a gift
That's why we call it the present
There is only one love
And you're soaking in it
There is only one love
And you're floating in it
There is only one love
(Barron)
Track Name: What if?
What if? (Barron)

When I look in to your eyes
Those limpid pools of blue
When I gaze upon your smile
It makes me smile right back at you

I’m so happy to be here with you
I’m so happy for thee, being here with me
I’m so happy to be here with you
I’m so happy for thee

Your tender touch upon my skin
Sends a tingle up my spine
Your lips upon my lips
As your eyes look up into mine
Takes my breath and beats my heart
Into something really fine

I’m so happy to be here with you
I’m so happy for thee, being here with me
I’m so happy to be here with you
I’m so happy for thee

What if this is it?
What if?
Track Name: Soft as glass
Soft as glass (Barron)

Salt water
Don’t oughta
Too taffy-nut no filling
Still like my cup of meat
Grace is coming in a moment
Bliss ninnies be prepared
It’s everything you’d ever hoped for
Track Name: Crown or no crown
You know I already see
My king bee baby
And I’m hopin’
He knows I’m a hun
He can come running to
From his town
Over there.

We tested the bulwarks
I’d checked out our ID
Cuz we’re all so good
About being so smart
Bout these things
These days.

I’m so in your car
Which is funny
Cuz I’m so on the fence
Not about me in your car
Bout my ambivalence.

Don’t even try to make a fist
You look too cute
Why don’t we sell tickets
Of you and your crown
In your birthday suit
With your crown
Or no crown
Just wear that suit.

Uniting Industry
With pastime
Sorrow and affection
Sometimes we over shop
Till we reach our direction
Please pay attention.

Cuz I’m about
To leave my gloves
In this taxicab baby
And you’re about
To leave your slipper in
My mailbox.

Don’t even try to make a fist
You look too cute
Why don’t we sell tickets
Of you and your crown
In your birthday suit
With your crown
Or no crown
Just wear that suit.

Track Name: Busy
Busy (Barron)

I was busy being born
You were busy dying
I was busy waking up
You were busy lying
I was busy making up
You were busy waiting
I was busy selling off
You were busy taping
I was busy taking off
You were busy landing
I was busy running scared
You were busy standing
I was busy talking loud
You were busy fishing
I was busy sitting down
You were busy skating
I was busy calling home
You were busy clapping
I was busy peeling grapes
You were busy crying
I was busy
You were busier
I was busy
You were busier
Track Name: Little things
3 eye teeth - false id’s
4 ideas and no sense of truth
ate bad food, 2 tall glasses
tense for a moment, your day’s now good

We see you barely moving
Your little kid has you tied in a brace
get up now take the trash out
see you lift, right into space

That ticket’s got your winnings
Spending your name all over the place
Get up now, pick your past up
Your little thing’s not your disgrace


It’s the little things that get you down
It’s the little things pick you
The little things that’ll get you down
So let the little things, pick you up

Shaking off those little things
Those little things that’ll get you down

1 day older and 4 nights told her
Sic’s a record in 28 days
The ovens cooking at 450
Hands on the fader
The mixes sound great

It’s the little that’ll get you down
It’s the little things that’ll pick you up
Track Name: Queen's castle
Queen’s Castle (Barron)

And the drums drumming
And the trumpets’ wail
And the dogs barking
And the flapping sail
And the wind lashing
And the water bails
And the cannon booming
And the broken rail
And the flash of lightning
And the shaking earth
And the sky falling
And the granite curb

And it all seems so real

And the last rays
And the final days
And the honest injun
And the purple haze
And the last tribe
And the simple ways
And the blue lagoon
And the beggar’s son
And the long logic
And the bottom line
And the tall order
And the thin red line
And the box cutter
And the friend of mine
And the wasted effort
And the reclaimed land
And the sky on fire
And the bird in hand
And the hot lather
And the earthen dam

And it all seems so real

And the big and mighty
And the fall from grace
And the open hand
And the resting place
And the unseen angel
And the wedding veil
And the broken arrow
And the down and out
And the queen’s castle
And the open door
And the cloth napkin
And the answered prayer
And the lost cause
And the county jail
And the watery eyes
And the twitching tail
And the big and mighty
And the fall from grace
And the open hand
And the resting place
And the unseen angel
And the wedding veil
And the broken arrow
And the watery eyes
And the twitching tail
