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

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

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...

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)

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

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

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
9.
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...
