Track Name: 13th Floor Elevator
Welcome inside allow your mind
To roam, to roam
At first it seems that are free
Unknown, unknown
Please take me home for a while
For I have missed the Delta by a Nile
13th floor elevator take me home

It’s rad trad dad I’m a love-sick lad
Yumina yumia, yumm maya
Over the sea the worlds spinning
It shows, It shows
Once you have seen through yourself
And you know that you’re everybody else
The 13th floor elevator will take you home.
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Fight
Darling, why don’t you write me?
I am out in jungle swingin’ vines to you
Please don’t worry
I am not the angry boy who you once knew
So please don’t worry
I don’t wanna fight
Now that you’re out of my life
You knew me, you knew me

Now I know they’re not real
All these voices in my head are not true
But they seem to convince me
That you’re not the trusting person I once knew
So please don’t worry
I don’t wanna fight
Know that you’re out of my life
You knew me, you knew me

Kisses for you, kisses for you
And me.
Track Name: Big In Japan
The land of the rising sun it calls me
I must head across the sea
You can keep your Venice in Italy
It’s Osaka in Japan for me
Well shiranu ga hotoke
Oh shiranu ga hotoke
Maybe it is better not to know
I’m sorry girl I have to let you go

She knows I’m a loner
But I’m big in Japan
She knows I wouldn’t have no other
So I keep both of my feet in the sand
Well shiranu ga hotoke
Oh shiranu ga hotoke
Maybe it is better not to know
I’m sorry girl I have to let you go

She told me that she loved me, I told her I had to go away
To get home, to that island, I tried, and I tried but I just could not say
I love you, I guess I loved you, but did I love you
More than yesterday?

I’m coming home.
Track Name: Astrofriend
So long Earth and with it my honey
Blasting off my Astrofriend and me
Set a course for a moon up in the stars
Riding comets into crab nebulas
Black holes, nowhere to go
Well go somewhere, get lost in space
I hope I will forget this place my
Star Child

Brighter than a million suns in the sky
As supernovas pass us by
The universe doesn’t seem so small
When is swallows you ship and all
Black holes, nowhere to go
Well go somewhere, get lost in space
I hope I will forget this place my
Star Child
Back on gravity, in my home galaxy
She’s in her pod with someone new
And now my Milky Way is milky-blue

Black holes, nowhere to go
Well go somewhere, get lost in space
I hope I will forget this place my
Star Child.
Track Name: Bikini Atoll
Oh well hello there, the surf is up I see
Out on the island, we call it Bikini
But I’m sure you’ll drown
We can’t go swimming now
We’ll take the frown
And turn it upside-down

There was no option, a motion-colour film
Bikinians left, so we blew up a hill
But it’s different now
And no one is around
The testing’s loud
It’s the nuclear sound

Bikini Atoll, nothing gets old
Bikini Atoll, war is cold

I wouldn’t want to, ever head back there soon
There was a fall-out we left the lagoon
But it’s different now
And no one is around
The testing’s loud
It’s the nuclear sound

Sometimes I wonder, just if I’m having fun
And if I’d ask them, they’d say keep out of the sun
But I’m sure you’ll drown
We can’t go swimming now
We’ll take the frown
And turn it upside-down

Bikini Atoll, nothing gets old
Bikini Atoll, war is cold.

Let's go catch those waves, boys!
Track Name: Song About Sun
Come clean, and gravity
Throws me to the ground
To the ground
Oh Natalie, your jealousy
No need to tell me
Out rightly
I can’t stop loving you
No matter what I’ve tried to do
I find it strange and don’t know why
So many people live to die

Unconsciously, reality
Seems unnatural
Unnatural
With sun spinning, bright orange shining
You hardly know me
But told me
There’s no one waiting at my home
So come on over we’ll get stoned
This thought have never crossed my mind
So I left without saying goodbye

Clouds and daisies
Laying chains
A place where no one
Dies again

Come clean, from your dream
A burning spastic
Sarcastic
And Natalie, still jealously
She comes so easily
So easily
You know that I can’t stop loving you
No matter what I’ve tried to do
I find it strange and don’t know why
So many people live to die.
Track Name: Magic Mansion
Would you like to come see what I’ve been up to?
Built a house in the sun, there’s room for everyone!
Take out your brain; let’s have some fun
Board games built out of bubble-gum
Track out back let’s go for a run
And we’ll do whatever you want to
Envision it and it exists
You feel down, but you’re turning around
Tune out your doubts
For one minute

Would you like to come see what there is to do?
Pink elephants on the run, coming out of raindrops from the sun!
We can laugh, jump, and play
I’ll be prince, you’re princess for the day
Come on friend let’s float away
And we’ll do whatever you want to
Envision it and it exists
You feel down, but you’re turning around
Tune out your doubts
For one minute

I know, times slow
It’s hard but you’re not alone
I know, times slow
It’s hard having fun I know

And we’ll do whatever you want to
Envision it and it exists
You feel down, but you’re turning around
Tune out your doubts
For one minute.
Track Name: Chinese Whispers
Take me down, Chinatown
Take me round and show me how to look
Chinese Whispers in my head
And some Zen in little Red Books
There she goes, goose-steppin’ toes
Looking to turn around
Oh what a terrible thing
To know everything
Crying out, “Oh my God!”
Jesus Christ, and the Holy Son
Didn’t mean to offend
I need friendship just as much as you
There I go, Chairman Mao’s clothes
Looking to shop around
Oh what a groovy thing
I know nothing

Holy cow! Chairman Mao
Even though I’m not as scary as he looks
In the year of the horse
Well of course I did anything for you
There she goes, goose-steppin’ toes
Looking to turn around
Oh what a terrible thing
To know everything.
Track Name: Love's A Beach
What time is it I’m not sure
My watch fell off back in the sand
I’ll pull you close oh baby
We’ll find ourselves some dryer land
Just remember that you’re not the girl I came here with
And I’m sure she’ll get upset if it’s you I’m seen here with
We’re in love along this shoreline
And love is just a beach

It’s not my fault our dingy
Ran aground upon a rock
And there’s one thing that this old salt knows
We can’t swim back to a dock
So my baby don’t you look at me with that hunger in your eyes
Just remember it’s either you or me that’s leaving here
And if push gives way to shove I’m sure you’ll taste so dear
Feeling full along this shoreline
I’m in love along this shoreshine
And love is just a beach.
Track Name: Seagulls
Caw caw caw
Track Name: Samsara
Thoughts can seem to keep
Much company alone
You looked scared to me
Uncomfortably alone
You ought to know
Samsara

Please turn on with me
Float down the stream of mind
Tune in galaxies
Finish your tea on time
You ought to know
Samsara

Thoughts don’t seem to teach
A mind to speak, oh no
Now you look at me
Quite comfortably and know
Track Name: Granny Takes A Trip
Nice boy makes friends
Gets girl and lives out all his plans
So far, so good
Sorry ma’am we’ve done the best we could

She won’t talk now
Won’t even acknowledge from her brow
Boy’s gone, bye-bye
Strung out on a rain cloud trying to hide
When Granny takes a trip

It’s funny, ha-ha
Can’t be bothered la-dee-da
Hey man, cool song
Make sure it doesn’t go to long

Recap the verse
So they can tell which chords come first
Let’s dance on the floor
Pick you up for the sock-hop at your door
Oh Granny


You seem like the girl who doesn’t like peaches and cream
And your rain it falls in Spain if you know exactly what I mean
But the dogs will get upset, and the hounds begin to moan
But all I really wanna do is try and take you home

This party’s so rad
The guy I tried to fight is rad
Let’s kiss, make-up
I’ll hold your hair when you throw up.
Track Name: (In A) Tree
Nice boy makes friends
Gets girl and lives out all his plans
So far, so good
Sorry ma’am we’ve done the best we could

She won’t talk now
Won’t even acknowledge from her brow
Boy’s gone, bye-bye
Strung out on a rain cloud trying to hide
When Granny takes a trip

It’s funny, ha-ha
Can’t be bothered la-dee-da
Hey man, cool song
Make sure it doesn’t go to long

Recap the verse
So they can tell which chords come first
Let’s dance on the floor
Pick you up for the sock-hop at your door
Oh Granny


You seem like the girl who doesn’t like peaches and cream
And your rain it falls in Spain if you know exactly what I mean
But the dogs will get upset, and the hounds begin to moan
But all I really wanna do is try and take you home

This party’s so rad
The guy I tried to fight is rad
Let’s kiss, make-up
I’ll hold your hair when you throw up.
Track Name: Skunk Pie

Please?
