Track Name: Washington Square
So here I am in the city now wow
And it's a New York afternoon
I'm stuck away in my Brooklyn bedroom
Just howling at the moon
I got a call from a friend today
She says she's going to Vermont
She's going up for about four days
And I can go too if I want
I'd love to go but I have to stay
And try to find a job
Spent yesterday in Washington Square
And all the regular folks were there
I sat and watched underneath a tree
I smoked and saw what the world could be
Track Name: Trouble
It started out so sweet
We're friends that's all you need
There's room for so much more
But you're tired and much too bored to even speak
Waiting for the train headed uptown once again
You ask me what is wrong
Girl if I told you my heart may not keep the beat
I just wanna hold you through the whole damn summer long
I must have told you with my face yeah all along just how I feel
But you're trouble oh you're trouble
So now it's been five months two weeks and three days
Since you last seen that boy
But there ain't no difference in your face
How can you deal?  How that must feel
Oh and I've been the fool but around me you're just too cool
Oh Lady with the pet dog you're gonna have to go ahead a kiss a frog to make it real
I just want to tell you what it's been like to feel this way
No more need to worry about losing the games you love to play
Because I'm through
Yeah you're trouble oh you're trouble
You're trouble oh you're trouble
I can't get away I must like it
You're trouble
Track Name: Seventh Avenue
I'm walking home in the fog
I'm going down Eighth Avenue
I'm coming home from a friend's
We just hung out on his stoop
And I normally walk down Seventh Avenue
But there's so many people at night down there
And I'm coming up to Flatbush I can see the lights
I've got to cross the street into the night
Then I find my keys in my hands
I make a point of being safe
I'm on the last block home
There's nobody out it's late
Track Name: The A.M.
Some love the morning more than the evening
That's not what I'm trying to say
But I've got the A.M. on my mind
It doesn't matter at all what time of day it is
And it's not hard to be kind
First thing in the morning I will rise
Last thing in the evening I will sigh
Track Name: Avalon Ballroom
So you wanna be a rock and roll star for what it's worth
Proud Mary Chuck Berry Captain Beefheart
At the Polo Fields in the Golden Gate State Park
Moby Grape The Sparrow Charlatans in The Avalon Ballroom
The Family Dog will be there too January 13th, 1967
So you want to know who you are and what you're worth
Proud father why bother can you shoot yourself
Do you feel your future breaking apart
Moby Grape The Sparrow Charlatans in The Avalon Ballroom
The Family Dog will be there too January 13th, 1967
Track Name: Ball in the Sky
Why does the ball up in the sky
Not seem very red to me
In my right mind you I would find
I'd take you into the day
We'd run and hide without a worry
I'd see the sun in your hair
It'd wake us up and tear off our sheets
And we'd sit by the window sill
Track Name: Affection
Once I was tired but now I'm fine
Was uninspired but not this time
And I know I've been down before
There can be no doubt about it
But if there's one thing I'm sure
It's of your love I can't live without it
"How does if feel" the man said "to be on your own"
I say "It's like 150 pounds wrapped around my bones"
And when I get home there's nobody around
What can I do or say
People all over the world are starving just for affection
Well to me this ain't funny to me this is real
So I thought I'd tell everybody exactly how I feel about affection
Track Name: Twisted
I'm on the upslide
Getting slack from all sides come on just let me go
Kind of wrapped up in you
So tight so far I don't know which way I'm twistin' anymore
Seen all the layers I've only got a couple more to go
I could be turning the wrong way though
So I'm the bullet inside your head
Waiting on the time for it to explode it's all out
And we're so close by now
It's gotta find a way of getting inside of me instead now
It ain't that lonely when you need a friend to be
Something more than friendly
I guess that leaves you out
What can I do about it
I'm just twisted again, Lord
Looks like you're at the wrong end
Track Name: Holiday
The sky is blue
It hasn't changed its color in a week maybe two
The birds in the trees
They're frozen in the middle of the same melodies
Holiday It's time for me to be with you
Holiday take a break from what we're both used to
Holiday oh I like you and you like me too
Now get up get up get up get up
Fall for me
Now the grass outside my door
It hasn't grown an inch wait let me check it once more, see
And the people on my street
They haven't moved a bit since we've been able to meet
Holiday It's time for me to be with you
Holiday take a break from what we're both used to
Holiday oh I like you and you like me too
Now get up get up get up get up
Fall for me
Track Name: New Orleans
Baby pack your things in a pickup truck
We're getting out of this town
There's too many people saying too many things
Too many things to get around
I met a young man down in New Orleans
Where the sky is blue and the trees are green
He told me 'bout a shack by the riverside
With a welcome mat outside
Where the whiskey flows and the moonlight glows
Breezes blow through the cotton groves
And the sand squishes out from between your toes
I think it's where I wanna go
And the millions call to me
Don't sell your house down in New Orleans
There's a fortune in gold down there
We'll spend a little time in the winter sun
We have but a second to spare
You say you've had enough of the life you know
I'll take you to a place where the time goes slow
Where the sand squishes out from between your toes
I think it's where I wanna go
And the millions call to me
Track Name: Cam 2
The stadium was full
Indianapolis 1979
You went with your dad
You saw Tom Sneva crash
As you were driving home
You stopped at a Stuckey's to buy some fireworks
You tried them out when you got home
The giant grenade didn't go off
It was just a smoke bomb
Track Name: Snow Song
Snow it's coming down
It's soft on the ground
Is that what she hears
A thousand miles near and who is to know
This winter will come and we'll go
Wish it well wish it better than me
And you had a dream
Her face and the scream
Something was wrong
Remember that song
But who is to say
The wind might have come back to stay
Wish it well wish it better than me
So now how have you told
The girl who would want with you to grow old
She's too far away
And who is to tell
The point where the sound fades away
Wish it well wish it better than me
Track Name: Wendy
Kept something to yourself
Was better for your health
Whisper it in my ear
Now it has all become so clear
You've gotta find something better than this
You see me and you want to get a kiss
Can't hold back when you know you feel
Something so true something so real
It smells like spring it feels like fall
It makes you want to sing
You know that we could have had a ball
And all along thought I was on your mind
Now I know I was just wasting time
Did not think that he was still with you
I guess there's nothing I can do
But I remember the day when we finally met
And you asked me to walk you home
We were indecisive then that's when you said
"Is this the way we're gonna begin"
But we never did
Track Name: Urbus Lament
"You shouldn't smoke as much pot as I do"
My boss said to me as he cut my shifts at the coffee house
"Who wants to go home early?" the manager said
Like Family Feud and Andrea won 'cause I wanted to stay
I said "You've got school tomorrow and this is my last shift this week
the boss cut my hours" I said to her
"He says his birthday is coming up he likes to purge
'Cause he's getting old and he's pretty poor
So he cut my hours and now I'm fucked"
"You shouldn't smoke as much pot as I do"
My boss said to me as he cut my shifts at the coffee house
Track Name: Berry Girl
She wants her teddy here
But she wants more and I know how little I had before
She was my berry girl
Chocolate frost sweeter and without me she had been lost
Flying the ball slips from one side I catch it
The other's overthrown
I shook the tree now the berry girl has found the way on her own
Time sits with me and he won't leave
Your mother has called several times this week
And she will buy me presents from before
When I know how much I wanted much more
Flying the ball slips from one side I catch it the other's overthrown
I shook the tree now the berry girl has found the way on her own
The berry girl has found the way on her own
