Track Name: Going Home
Better roll down the windows
Before you go over the rails, the rails, rails, the rails
Tumbling through space displaced by the
Rips in the sails, the sails the sails,sails
The water’s on fire we’re searching for higher ground
We are going home

Bowie took our friends in his spaceship to sit this one out
Their looking down on earth they’re convinced that it’s always been round
If only we could finally see the ship has crashed into the sea
They are going home

Thought we’d find salvation at the bottom of a glass
As we plunge ever further-
Is that too much to ask
If only we could finally see there’s so much left for you and me
We are going home

Row row row your boat as it sinks into the deep
Row row row your boat onward up a frightening creek

The motor has died we rely on the mercy of the wind
Someday we will realize the end is where we begin
We crash into the rocky shore we knock upon the lighthouse door
And there was no one home
So we are going home.
Track Name: Don't Be A Jerk- A post election blues (explicit)
Don’t be a jerk

It’s self explanatory

When shit doesn’t work

Don’t get derogatory

When life gives you shit

Make a sandwich

Take a bite out of it

Them watch your language

When you’re stuck, in the muck

Take a deep breath and embrace the suck

Don’t worry be happy

Laughing happens to make life less crappy

If you’d rather wallow

We understand that life’s a tough pill to swallow

Yeah we get it----- don’t forget it------- don’t be a jerk-- INTERLUDE____

Don’t’ be a turd when you disagree

Don’t flip them the bird--- it’s unnecessary

When life’s pretty awful---

You feel like you are cursed

Don’t take this for gospel

We’ll end up in a hearse

Yeah we get it----- don’t forget it. Don’t be a jerk
