Track Name: The Best You Can
I push so hard tryin’ to be the best I can
Yet I always feel I‘m running from a dogma or a plan
I really fear I’m losin’, should be gainin’ every day
I need to get it all together before the whole thing goes away
Yeah, it goes away
Yeah, goes away

I’m lucky to be livin’, breathin’, cherishin’ my life
All the friends and loved ones, nature’s beauty – this moment here is nice
Yeah, I’m cryin’ through California, wind is blowin’ through my mind
I’m patient with the struggle, can’t I just enjoy the ride?
Can you enjoy the ride?
Yeah-heh enjoy the –

Plate you got before you, God above is on your side
Or you wouldn’t be here listenin’ to the love that He provides
I’m reachin’ gently into you, I do this not to pry
It’s just that we’re all here together, you’re my brother, sister, mother, father –
You’re some kind of guy, or girl
It’s easy when you try…

Love
Love is soft and cunning as it settles in your mind
And it softens up the areas that you have yet to find
And when you’re lookin’ through your closet, it’s up to you what you design

Your life – NO, your love
Is all that you will leave behind
And when you really stop and feel it, tears are never too far behind
“Cause we’re all just blessed to be here, hug your neighbor and start to cry
Feels good
Start to cry
You love your mother, you’ll feel it for awhile

It’s important that you try and really do the best you can
‘Cause everything that happens in a master plan
And though you can’s always see it, there are moments that you can
And when you do, you want to be it

Love your brother man
Like your brother or your sister, if you can
Love is the best of man
Love is the best you can
Track Name: FATSO
SHE REALLY REALLY IS TUBBY.
CAUSE THAT'S THE WAY I LET HER BE.
BUT STILL SHE'S LOOKING GOOD TO ME.
SHE GIVES ME EVERYTHING I NEED.

FATSO!
MY ANGEL IS A FATSO.
FATSO!
MY ANGEL IS A FATSO.

I THINK SHE'S REALLY REALLY CUTE.
SHE SHAKES IT AND KNOWS WHAT TO DO.
I TELL HER WHEN IT IS ALL THROUGH
THAT I KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU.

FATSO!
MY ANGEL IS A FATSO.
FATSO!
MY ANGEL IS A FATSO.

I REALLY LIKE THE WAY SHE WALKS.
AND IT'S REALLY CHILL TO HEAR HER TALK.
AND SHE IS WHAT IS RIGHT FOR ME,
A NICE VELVETY EBONY.

FATSO!
MY ANGEL IS A FATSO.
FATSO!
MY ANGEL IS A FATSO.
Track Name: Even
Only the day stays gray
When you're not even
Always the time goes stray
When you're not even
Lost time in mind
You're never only dreaming
Getting lost for rhyme
The harmonies are breathin'

You get hurt
You get beaten
When you're not even

Rhythms groove my spine
I'm only grieving
And it's proof I'm alive
And I'm not retreating

I get hurt
I get beaten
When I'm not even

And I go through the days
You can live and leave 'em
And I know it's great
The harmonies are breathin'

You get hurt
You get beaten
You'll have spurts
And you must complete them

Only the day stays gray
When you're not even
Always the time goes stray
When you're not even

I get hurt
I get beaten
I'll have spurts
And I'm not even
Track Name: Cage
I spend my days walking around in a little cage
And in a way, it kind of contains me when within it I stay
And I don’t know if I ever leave it if I will feel safe
It’s my cage, it’s my cage and I’m not going to give it away
It’s my cage, it’s my cage and it’s the way I need things to stay

And when I’m low and yes, I’ve had my times, I paint the cage blue
And though it’s a new color for me, I feel free, though it might not be new to you
It’s my cage, it’s my cage, it holds me in, this place that I go
It’s my cage, it’s my cage and it’s moving real slow
It’s my cage when I fear change, but that’s the only way things are going to go

And when I want to wish it away, it keeps calling me and I get scared, you know
It’s my cage, and as I rearrange, it’s the first thing that’s going to go
These bars only dull your blades, as they’re replayed they’re stealing your show
It’s my cage and when it goes away, I’m going to grow
It’s my cage, it’s my cage, I’m going to give it away
It’s my cage, it’s my cage, I’m going to give it away
Track Name: Rincon And Angel
The two beings
The beasts seated next to me
The familiar one and her friend for life
Beaming to me with their positive energy
Like children we feel better as one

Feed Me
Feed Me
Feed Me
I want more

Feed Me
Feed Me
Feed Me
I want more
Love Love Love
It all sounds good to me
But I really want you to feed me

Black dog
Face that remains great you see
The brilliance and scattered harmony
Can you really make all of this true for me?
In our peace and bliss and ecstasy

Feed Me
Feed Me
Feed Me
I want more

Feed Me
Feed Me
Feed Me
I want more
Love Love Love
It all sounds good to me
But I really want you to feed me

Rincon and Angel
They frolic and they play
Adoring every instant of the overflowing day

Angel and Rincon
Wag tongues with much to teach
Lessons delivered silently whole strolling on the beach

Rincon and Angel
There’s a reason that they’re here
On you and I the world relies and this is very clear

Angel and Rincon
Don’t spend time looking down
Except to sniff the flowers and admire what they’ve found

Learn what you like
Love
I’ll try not to teach you

If you like what you learn
Love
There’s you and there’s me

Learn what you like
Love
We’re all her together

When you look in their eyes
Love
That’s all you can see

That’s all you can see
That’s all you can see
That’s all you can see

Love Love Love Love
Love Love Love Love
Love Love Love Love

Love Love Love Love
Love Love Love Love

Track Name: Killing's Wrong
Killing's Wrong
Killing's Wrong
That's why we sing this song

Killing's Wrong
Killing's Wrong
That's Right! That's Right!

The Revolutionary War was fought because our land was ruled by kings.
Now our leaders live above the law, deal votes for diamond rings
With all these wars they’re fighting in, each day there people die.
And I think the time is finally here we learn the answer why
The get paid for trading lives

Killing's Wrong
Killing's Wrong
That's why we sing this song

Killing's Wrong
Killing's Wrong
That's Right! That's Right!

Plant a seed into the ground. Up grows a giant tree.
Let’s stop with all the killing now and build our family
in a world that’s killing free.

Killing's Wrong
Killing's Wrong
That's why we sing this song

Killing's Wrong
Killing's Wrong
That's Right! That's Right!
Track Name: Valentine Song
Every year,
It’s gotten plenty clear,
That we will be
Together at this time

And here right here,
Oh yes, oh here right here,
I’ll say that I pray you’re always mine

This calendar line
February’s never fine
But that doesn’t change the fact I love you so

So what I mean to say
This each and every day
Even though Valentine’s Day sucks,
I love you

I think you’re really sweet
Like pickled chicken’s feet
And I’ll chew on you until the day I die

The cute faces you make
To see ‘em when I wake
I realized has always been a dream of mine

I think you’re really fine
Like that Mondavi wine

And when you hurl the bocce ball, words can’t describe…

I said, “What I mean to say,
This each and every day
Even though Valentine’s Day sucks,
I love you”

And when I’m next to you
The silly things you do
Licky, Puppy Girl, and Peeper,
They’re all mine

And when you sing to me
Your precious melody

Pa Gee Pa Gah Pa Gah Pa
Pa Gee Pa Ga Pee Gah
Pa Gee Pa Gah Pa Gah

Even though Valentine’s Day sucks,
I love you x2
Track Name: I Shot Teddy (Just For Fun)
I didn’t like the way he was talking to me so I went and got my gun
Then I went and shot my Teddy, Teddy and then when I was done
I said, “I didn’t like the stuff that you were saying.” I thought that it was rude
And to think that for a momentary instant, I thought Ted was a cool dude

I shot Teddy just for fun
Just for fun
Just for fun
I shot Teddy just for fun

I said, “I didn’t like the way you were talking to me.
I think that you were lyin’.”
Now you’re in a pool of your own stuffing
There’s my Teddy dyin’
And just when you thought that it might be over,
I placed you in the road
And I cranked up The Beast from Back the East
And then I lightened up your load.

I shot Teddy just for fun
Just for fun
Just for fun
I shot Teddy just for fun

Yes, as my engine roared, I heard him cryin’.
It was my lone mistake.
But the damage had been done and once I hit him,
I threw him in the lake.

I shot Teddy just for fun
Just for fun
Just for fun
I shot Teddy just for fun

But when I crossed the T’s and dot the I’s,
It didn’t matter what he’d done

I shot Teddy just for fun
Track Name: Crybaby
Crybaby
Wahs all day long
Crybaby
Is singing her song
Crybaby
Is outside all day
Crybaby
Is wasting away

Crybaby
Can you hear her sing?
Crybaby
She’s a black poochy thing
Crybaby
Chains jingle ‘round her neck
Crybaby
She isn‘t named Speck

Crybaby
What will she do?
Crybaby
She’s been looking for you.
Crybaby
She barks at the door
Crybaby
We get in the car, hit the park, and she runs for the shore.

Crybaby
She wants to go out
Crybaby
If she can’t then she’ll pout
Crybaby
But she’s still so sweet
Crybaby
With her furry body black and cute darling little white feet

Crybaby
Track Name: Only Way
The only way to change
The only way to change
The only way to change
the world, to change yourself
