Track Name: Nine Lives
We're stepping for the future but each step we take builds the past.
We're thinking slowly but our minds are speaking fast.
Stuttering and fluttering and trippin' all over myself.
Diggin' deep inside my brain to find out I was somebody else.

The cat sat on the carousel and thought about the years he had left.
The question raised confusion
He came to a conclusion
but forgot it.

And he said
"Can we all just get along?
The weight is heavy but you know you must pack it on.
Go to the gypsy tell her of your fears
at the Moon Train camp that's where she is
Can't we all get get along?

Shes Waiting For You
Shes Waiting For You
Shes Waiting For You
Waiting For You
Are you gonna show like you used to?

But can't we all just learn to forgive?
You know you never had a reason to rub it in.
But find the gypsy tell her of your fears
at the Moon Train camp that's where she hid
Cant we all just learn to forgive?

The cat sat on the carousel and thought about the years he had left.
The question raised confusion
He came to a conclusion
but forgot it.

Shes Waiting For You
Shes Waiting For You
Shes Waiting For You
Waiting For You
Are you gonna show like you used to?

La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Duh
Are ya gonna show like ya used to?
La-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Duh
Are ya gonna show like ya used to?

etc etc...
Track Name: Paper Money Castles
Paper money castle
Left to stand on its own
Left a burning candle
Set alight no my home

Now its burnt to dust
and crystals made of sand
The pieces I pick up
fall through the gaps of my hand

Mother what have you done?
My baby brother,
What have you become?

I went to see the witch doctor
tears rolled down my cheek
he said
"I can not help a man
if he comes to me weak"
Laid my head in my hands
I fell down
and I cried
"Lord keep me safe
Lord keep me alive."

Mother what have you done?
My baby brother,
What have you become?
Track Name: Party of Rocks
waiting in the rain
on a sunny day
everybody comes
no body stays
and Peter Piper Picket Dawn
plants the seeds
to grow his lawn.

For the Party of Rocks
Everyone was excited
'til the host decided
No one was invited
I'm singing alone.

Well my dear friend Peter Loan
His roses didn't grow
and Mary Stone
is talking on the phone
She's discussing the party
She doesn't think she'll show.

to the Party of Rocks
Everyone was excited
'til the host decided
No one was invited
I'm singing alone.
and I'm singing alone.

Well the grass was veined on the other side
So I crossed the river
I snuck inside
Where I found Mary Stone
In her bedroom alone
And Father Mac
Was sanding the tables back
but Peter had had enough
He's given up
and packed his bags

For when mother was there,
Dressed in grey
Saving the crusts off the stale bread
To feed to the ducks on a rainy day
and Sidney was there
But she was unaware
That it was a party for kings
With flowers in their hair
The leader tried to explain
Before he could say anything
the rain started to fall again.
Oh no
no
no.


Come to the party of rocks
come to the party of rocks
everyone was excited
til the host decided no one was invited
I'm singing alone
Track Name: Don't Trust
Can't trust what you read in the news
Can't trust the people can't trust their views.
Can't trust me its fine
You know don't trust you.

Don't trust yourself
Don't trust yourself
Don't trust yourself
or anybody else.

Don't trust yourself
you can love yourself.
Don't trust yourself
or anybody else.

I can't trust the birds in the trees.
I can't trust the fish swimming in the sea.
I can't trust you it's fine.
You know I don't trust me.

ah
I can't trust the drugs the doctor prescribes
I won't drink the finest bottle of wine
Don't trust your Husband
He don't trust his wife
Dreams of fleeing each day
on the railway lines.


Don't trust yourself
Don't trust yourself
Don't trust yourself
or anybody else.

Don't trust yourself
you can love yourself.
Don't trust yourself
or anybody else.

I can't trust me.
Yeah or no?
I can trust me
Yeah yeah no
I'm gonna trust
I'm gonna trust
me.

(screaming)
