Track Name: The Last Tree
Sorrows come and sorrows go
That's all I know, that's all I know
And the light comes strong and fast
But I'm afraid it's never going to last
Close your eyes and follow me
Into the dark inviting sea
The ocean waves will cover me
But I'll be all right

Well someday everyone who we attack will fight us back
But 'til then let's just pretend
We're like them; we're so Bohemian
Close your eyes and follow me
Into the woods under the trees
If we hide our heads under the leaves
We'll be all right.

But someday the last tree
Is gonna fall, and kill us all
And 'til then well let's pretend
We're doing everything we can
Close your eyes and follow me
Into a world only I can See
If I get lost don't look for me
You'll be all right

Close your eyes and follow me
Into the black and blinding sea
If I get lost don't look for me
You'll be all right
Sorrows come and sorrows go
That's all I know, that's all I know
Track Name: There Is A Giant Panther
Where is the light, where is the light?
Where is the light, where is the light?
Hold on my love, there is a giant panther out there
and if you leave she will take you in her shining claws
and suck the marrow from your bones,
your bones, your bones

Hold on my love, there is a giant panther out there
and you can't breathe
but you can stick your head inside her paws like I would hold you
in my loving arms.
Where is the light, where is the light?
Track Name: Little Weeper
Well I went to the waterfall in mid-December
and the air was so clean that it brightened my lungs and my mind.
I stood on the rocks below the falling water
In the place where as a child I caught a salamander.
Little Weeper, go to sleep now.
Things look better in the morning light.
You could cry all day and night now, couldn't you?
But go to sleep and you'll probably be all right.

As I stood on the rocks, I remembered your long legs
Wading nervously through the cold and shady riverside
And you walked across a log that had fallen in a storm
and you slipped and you fell but I caught you in my arms.
Little Weeper, go to sleep now
Things look better in the morning light
You could cry all day and night now, couldn't you?
But go to sleep and you'll probably be all right.
"Who is the searcher? Who is the colonist?
In time you will know the last wilderness"
Well I want to the waterfall in mid-December
and the air was so clean that it
Brightened my lungs and my mind.
I stood on the rocks below the falling water
in the place where as a child I caught a salamander
And the river said, "Papa knows his baby, Papa knows his child,
Lay your head beside the water, let your soul be wild"

Little Weeper, go to sleep now
Things look better in the morning light
You could cry all day and night now,
couldn't you? But go to sleep and you'll probably be all right.

I want the world to be cold like the one you're living in
Track Name: The Most Excruciating Vibe
Into the most excruciating vibe we ride
Side by side
On big gray clouds we ride
I'm just saying yes to you
But you say no to everything I like to do
And into the most excruciating vibe we ride
Side by side.

As we're riding past the graveyard
I'm wondering if I can fool you into coming
Into my house again
And I got so excited about it
I forgot to remind you,
You have to hold your breath,
be brave and face death
Or the ghost that got into me will climb
right into you too
And into the most excruciating vibe
we'll ride side by side
On big grey clouds we ride
Oh, honey you have to hold your breath
Be brave and face death or
The ghost that got into me will climb right into you too.

And into the most excruciating vibe
We'll ride side by side
On big grey clouds, we ride
Oh, honey don't you know
I'm just saying yes to you
But why do you say no to everything
I want to do with you?
Into the most excruciating vibe we ride
Side by side
Track Name: No Moonlight
Every day the sun shines on the moon
But there is no moonlight on the sun
Do you think the moon is happy
Just to be there or does she wish
He'd feel her sometimes?
Every day the sun shines on the earth
And the earth gives birth to everyone
Do you think the moon is happy
Just to look on or is there sadness in
her spinning round?
Every day the sun shines on the moon
But there is no moonlight on the sun
And do you think the moon is happy
just to be there or does she wish
he'd feel her sometimes?
Track Name: Strange Creature
Strange creature, knocking on my door
Please don't come in
Oh, I might have a heart attack, please
don't let him in, I thought I was rid of him
I climbed up to the very top of the hill
Talking, on the astral plane, to my distant demon love
and when I got where I was going
I tried to kick him out of me
I said, OH OH OH get this thing off of me I don't want it anymore
Then spinning around in the sunlight,
I called the birds to eat his soul
And I ran down down down through the woods
And I tried to lock my little door
But my home and my mind have fallen into such disrepair
there ain't hinges on the door any more

Strange creature, knocking on my door
Strange creature, knocking on my door
Please don't come in
I might have a heart attack
please don't let him in
I thought I was rid of him.
Track Name: The Sun Comes Up
The sun comes up
There is no fog
The heat is on
The cold is gone
Now it is hot
No more freeze
The sun comes up
And there is no fog
The heat is now on
There is no cold anymore

Now you must be yourself
And enjoy the heat and the sun
The sun will shine and the heat will stroke.
You will be good.
So you won't have to freeze anymore.
Now you know.
Track Name: Link In Your Chain
I'll tunnel under the reeds by the riverbank
and sleep in the boughs of a fallen pine
and in the darkness I'm just a shadow creature
leaving all my sins behind.

Run from the dogs
Run from the men
Run from the life that follows them
Because these big hands were
never meant to be a link in your chain.

I'd rather trust in the heart of a killer
Than believe all the lies in a scholar's brain
I am strange and I have been reckless
But I've never been insane.

Will you remember me when I've been gone a couple years or more?
Will you still recall my face when I've been living in the woods?

I'm not sorry for what I've done
So I'll tunnel under the reeds by the riverbank
and sleep in the boughs of a fallen pine
and in the darkness I'm just a shadow creature
Leaving all my sins behind
Run from the lights burning so bright
I'm better off in the pale moonlight
because these big hands were
never meant to be a link in your chain
And when a wave of earth rolls in to cover you
and when your city falls into the sea
You'll wish that you remembered where I run off to
But you're not welcome here with me
Track Name: The Waterfall
Let's go tubing in the dawn on the warmest day in spring time
I will braid my scraggly hair and put a rainbow dress on
put your bicycle into the back of my truck and we'll ford the stream
Let's go tubing on the warmest day in spring
