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

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

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

Arizona 05:19
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
