Track Name: In the Stars
I followed my Muse -
Inside a Museum
With Statues of Gold -
So very European -
Then a saw Cleopatra - and I had a Wet Dream
God I wish You’d been there
Oh Yeah

Then I came upon - Archimedes
He was overweight with ‘type 1’ diabetes
Then he showed me a map of the stars in the Pleiades
God I wish You’d been there
You’d be walking on Air
Like the Level and the Square
God I wish You’d been there

Then I came upon - Julius Caesar
He accused me of being a ‘non-believer’
Then he had himself - an epileptic seizure
You’d a been astounded
As the senate all surrounded
and the ‘Whore of Babylon’ she mounted
The Seven Headed Beast
Then Caesar was deceased

Then we howled at the Moon - and we watched the Comet
With the trail of Blood - you know it made me vomit
But don’t you worry man - cause - I am ‘on it’
Like white on rice
Like cruelty on nice
Like Jesus H Christ
Hanging on a Tree
Suspended Magically
In the Stars - In the Starry Sea
Just Like U and me
Track Name: Magically Off-Center
Magically Off-Center

She wore a Crown as Bright as the Morning Star
She wore Robes that were pure like Heaven
She was down with all things bizarre.
And she worked at 7-11
She could brighten the day
In unusual ways
She was Magically Off-Center
A little like me
Stoned as can be
Like DMT
Yeah her and me
“Dance-Dance-Dance”
In the sky she picked out a Star for me
She said now make a Wish upon it
So I tried and wished for her to be with me
And I wrote it in a Sonnet
She could brighten the day
In unusual ways
Yeah she was Magically Off-Center
Way out on a Limb
Like Original Sin
Like riding a Schwinn
Outside Lookin’ In - Yeah

Jesus and The Devil

I’m Obsessive - Compulsive
Attractive - Repulsive
I’m Darkness and Light
And Everything Bright

I’m Open - Restricted
Peaceful - Conflicted
I’m not what I seem
I’m a Broken Machine

I’m Below & Above
Impossible to Love
I’m Strong but Addicted
I’m Clean but Convicted

I’m Here but Far Away
Trusted & Betrayed
I’m Jesus & The Devil
I’m Crooked but I’m Level

I’m a Slave but I’m Free
I’m not you I’m Me
I’m Living but I’m Dying
I’m Smiling but I’m Crying

I’m Malignantly-Benign
And Cruelly Kind
I’m Alone but Connected
Accepted - Rejected

I’m a Particle & a Wave
A Master and A Slave
I’m Beyond Redemption
Or Immaculate Conception

But there’s one thing I know
That I could never show
That when my Heart is Breaking
I’m too busy Faking
All the Smiles that I’m Making
And the Love I’m Forsaking
It’s Leaving me Shaking

I’m Obsessive - Compulsive
Attractive - Repulsive
I’m Darkness and Light
And Everything Bright

I’m Open - Restricted
Peaceful - Conflicted
I’m not what I seem
I’m a Broken Machine

Track Name: Oh for God's Sake
Improv
Track Name: That's all folks
That’s All Folks

At least we got Tutankhamun
Cause you and me we ain’t nothing alike
You want homemade - I want top ramen
You’re a fag and I’m a dike

You’re a lord - and I’m just a common
But deep inside we’re just the same
You’re a fake - and I’m a strawman
You wanna cum - but I already came

Cause I - I’m leavin’
The World just ain’t the same - no more
I - I’m leavin’
But I’ll love you - Forever more

You like it rough - and I like it mellow
You’re so pre-planned baby - and I’m off the cuff
You’re Raven-Black and I’m Canary Yellow
You sleep in your Pee-Jays - and I sleep in the buff

You’re on the ground - and I am falling
You’re so good lookin’ Mama - and I’m a mess
You hear that sound - I think I missed my calling
I should’ve been the one in the dress

Cause I - I’m Leavin’
The World just ain’t the same - No more
I - Yeah - I’m Dreamin’
But I’ll love you - Forever More

At least we got Tutankhamun
Cause you and me we ain’t - nothing alike
You want homemade - and I want Top Ramen
You’re a fag - and I’m a dike

Track Name: Ease (Refrain)
Ease

Even though -
I can't see you
I know you're always there
And I know - cause I can feel you
You're Love is Everywhere
So Please - Ease My Worried Mind

You know my Heart
My Heart is breaking
I wonder through life so aimlessly
There's no - There's no mistaking
It's just the way it's gotta be

So Please -
Ease My Worried Mind
Even though -
I can't see you
I know you're always there
And I know - cause I can feel you
You're Love is Everywhere
So Please - Ease My Worried Mind
