Track Name: Movin' Things Around
Swim in the bottle
Bake on the beach
Argent stars
So out of reach

Cannot seem find my finish line
I guess it's fine

Money comes in
Bills go out
Work in a circle
Shower in drought

Cannot seem find my finish line
I guess it's fine

MOVING THINGS AROUND
WANDER THRU THE TOWN
WATCH THE SUN GO DOWN
MOVING THINGS AROUND

The calendar crowds
with thing to do
yet seems so empty
when the year is thru

Cannot seem find my finish line
I guess it's fine

CHORUS: REPEAT

First Verse: Repeat

CHORUS: REPEAT
Track Name: Can' Fix Crazy
I reach your door and use your secret knocks
You let me in past your seven locks
You're glad to see me and you fix me up a drink
When you're not looking I pour it down the sink

Friends till the end
But trust is not enough
because...

YOU CAN'T FIX CRAZY
IT'S TRUE
NO MEDICATION
NO AMOUNT OF PSYCHIC GLUE
YOU CAN'T FIX CRAZY
IT'S TRUE
NO THERAPY
COULD EVER HAMMER THRU
IT'S TRUE
FOR YOU...
YOU CAN'T FIX CRAZY

Your place is chaos, a thousand photos on the wall
With strings and post it notes to explain them all
I never ask I keep our conversation light
I stay on task and keep you well within my sight

prehook: repeat

CHORUS: REPEAT

(bridge)

CHORUS: REPEAT
Track Name: End of the Day
Out on the street there's a fat man laughing
Your eyes are tuned, you follow the sound
You always care what's said behind you
You always care when the word gets around

You see eyes with drive-by-laughter
You hear whispers in the hall
You're walking thru aisles of a classroom
You're so afraid to trip and fall

IT'S ALL THOSE STAINS
THAT NEVER REMAIN
AT THE END OF THE DAY
THE END OF THE DAY

IT'S A SCRATCH OF PAIN
A DROP OF RAIN
AT THE END OF THE DAY
THE END OF THE DAY

You stand alone in a pack of jackals
They gather round to sniff and squeal
You wonder if their claims are righteous
You wonder if your convictions are real

You're writing notes, composing memos
Editorials to mail away
Your stack of paper grow higher and higher
And still you have so much more to say

CHORUS: REPEAT

(bridge)

CHORUS: REPEAT

You see their eyes with the drive-by-laughter
You hear the whispers in the hall
You always care what's said behind you
You always care when the word gets around...
Track Name: Still Got Your Picture
It was taken long ago but is seems like yesterday
A photo of your face that's got so much to say
Blue skies falling on a dusty beach
A bottle of wine within your reach
And I'm glad..

I STILL GOT YOUR PICTURE
STILL GOT YOUR PICTURE
STILL GOT YOUR PICTURE
STILL GOT YOUR PICTURE

I put it on the dash when I go out for a drive
In the middle of the road it brings the day alive
Dashboard dials going round and round
The breeze is blowin' you up and down
And I'm glad...

CHORUS: REPEAT

One day I'll blow it up into a big ole' 8 by 10
Have it all fixed so it looks brand new again
No more lines goin' 'cross your face
All the colors back in their place
It'll be...

JUST LIKE IT WAS
(STILL GOT YOUR PICTURE)
JUST LIKE IT WAS
(STILL GOT YOUR PICTURE)
JUST LIKE IT WAS
(STILL GOT YOUR PICTURE)
Track Name: Mystery Plane
Givin' all my things away
Piles of cash led astray
Sayin' goodbye to my mom

Buy a ticket anywhere
Spin the compass, I don't care
Come tomorrow morning I'll be gone

MYSTERY PLANE FLY AWAY
FIND SOME BLUE OUTSIDE THIS GREY
PACK IT UP GET UNDERWAY
GOT NO REASON TO STAY...
MYSTERY PLANE FLY AWAY

In the sky the future is bright
Clouds can't stop sunlight
From shining down

And after your was lost
All I want to do is toss
My whole life around
Track Name: Cargo Cult
The Radio crackled from one side
A bunch of nonsense till its batteries died
But savage eyes were already wide
With wonder

Cargo cult and legacy
Trinkits wash up from the sea
Shining with divinity so bright

Cargo cult and all is well
Dance into that fiery spell
Linen suits can never quell your light

And now a temple has grown in the field
Inside is a shrine stands to the surreal
Before the Radio savages kneel
With wonder

CHORUS: REPEAT

(bridge)

CHORUS: REPEAT
Track Name: Explore
Instrumental
Track Name: Sargasso Sea
Underneath a strange sky
The deck shimmers of green
I ration out more water
From a dented canteen

Looking all around, not a single sound
Except the gentle waves
Bobbing up and down in a burial ground
Of ships that lost their way

CALLING EVERY HOUR
ON EVERY FREQUENCY
ONLY TIME AND ME
IN MY SARGASSO SEA
WITH THE WAVES AND DEBRIS
IN MY SARGASSO SEA

Counting seagulls flying by
I've never felt so alone
Calling out to derelicts
Will I ever reach my home?

CHANNEL & CHORUS: REPEAT

Now night has fallen
And the weeds gather tight
Mist rolls in across my deck and
The moon goes out of sight

CHANNEL & CHORUS: REPEAT

(bridge)

CHANNEL & CHORUS: REPEAT
Track Name: Hunting For the Sun
I just keep hunting for the sun
Even when the darkness has all but won
I just keep hunting for the sun

I just keep searching for your smile
Even when it's vanished for a long long while
I just keep searching for your smile


THUNDER COMES BUT WE STAND STRONG
RAINY DAYS CAN ONLY LAST SO LONG
I LIFT BINOCULARS TO MY EYES
AND KEEP SCANNING FOR SUNNY SKIES


I just keep hunting for the sun
Even when the darkness has all but won
I just keep hunting for the sun

Some day I'm gonna track it down
Some day I'll find it and you'll be around
Smilin' with the sunshine for a crown
Smilin' with the sunshine...
