Track Name: Shangri-Lollipop
I remember in the depths of the afternoon I saw you sitting there
The light was bright and clear
You were writing “shangri la la la” over and over in the desert sand
Oh yeah, the signs were golden
The path was finally clear at last
Moving forward in the right direction
And then you grabbed my hand

I open the door to understand it also closes
I push things aside to find the ones that feel the closest
I clear my head so I can fill it up
Shangri Lollipop
You can’t look down until you’re at the top

You wanna know about a terrible way to die? KIA by regret
A shame you wouldn’t believe
Sometimes you gotta take hits to the jaw over and over like a punching bag
Oh yeah, it makes you stronger
You’ve got one chance so make it last
Calibration of your depth perception
Life comes at you fast

I open the door to understand it also closes
I push things aside to find the ones that feel the closest
I clear my head so I can fill it up
Shangri Lollipop
You can’t look down until you’re at the top

I open the door to understand it also closes
I push things aside to find the ones that feel the closest
I clear my head so I can fill it up
Shangri lollipop goes oooooohhhhh
Track Name: Starving (For Your Love)
Oh no, you’re picking up your keys
It means you’re going to leave for the night
Goodbye angel of my day
Oh man, I’m tripping over things
I’m a bird without it’s wings
They’re gone until you return to me
And now, I can’t breathe
It feels like forever watching the clock tick by
With no rhythm or sign of release

Oh, what’s a dog to do?
Oh, just howl at the moon?
I can’t get enough i’m still hungry for your love
I can’t get enough I’m starvin’ for your love

Your eyes, the way you look at me
I need those golden treats you keep
Don’t tell me that I’ve been bad
They say, time will heal the pain
Some cravings can’t be tamed at all
To try is pure lunacy
And now, I’ve gone mad
I’m climbing the counters, shredding the sofas too
But hey this boy’s got the blues


Oh, what’s a dog to do?
Oh, just howl at the moon?
I can’t get enough i’m still hungry for your love
I can’t get enough I’m starvin’ for your love

And the nights are growing colder all the time
Dog days are through
Track Name: Retirement Blues
As I stand at the edge of my porch and look out at the land I used to work with my hands
Worry comes bubbling up in my grey haired head
I worked this field since 2014 but now it’s been filled with little worker machines
They don’t take cigarette brakes or ever need to go home

My son is grown, my daughter found love
And my wife has ascended to the skies above
All the work is done in the 21st century

I used to have a house of brick and stone but that was when we all still had an ozone
Now everyone lives in solar powered self cleaning homes
I think maybe I should get a dog, a man’s best friend, something to take care of
But all the pets left on Earth are sadly plug in and go

My son is grown, my daughter found love
And my wife has ascended to the skies above
All the work is done in the 21st century

I’ll go out sometime to find a gal, another to love before I throw in the towel
Cuz the only ones I know are in virtual reality

My son is grown, my daughter found love
And my wife has ascended to the skies above
All the work is done in the 21st century

My son is grown, my daughter found love
And my wife has ascended to the skies above
She’s got a job on Mars in the first human colony
But you wouldn’t believe, she forgot to take me
Track Name: Arizona
There’s a light at the end of the street that goes out
They call it sundown
All the kids playing games in the field splinter out
It’s time to go home
There’s a sound that rings out through the town every night
It sounds like music
All the ghosts of the desert they play in a band
And they gig under starlit skies
They’re called “The Passing Lives”
They boogie all through the night

This town, it don’t have a name
It’s far out in a million different ways

Late at night, in their beds, everyone shuts their eyes
And start the dreaming
Golden dunes, silver mines, endless jugs of a wine
Made of cacti
Clear as day in the sky and away flying high
Across the river
Little town in the heat of the sand chugs along
With no place in mind
Your dreams are all true tonight
They’re in your heart and out of sight

And it comes as no surprise
There’s nothing left to make right
Close your eyes and sleep tight
