Reaching out in wonder to the world beyond With arms too short to satisfy a curiosity so strong Day by day the beckoning a silent beacon calls From inklings of infinity to dreams beyond these walls I wandered beyond the stone today Tomorrow the avenue And someday I may fly away To that place they call the moon Many are the windows under lock so little means But in an infants hands may lie the keys of destiny Marvel at the wonder of the endless world beyond And explore the possibilities of mysteries not yet known I wandered beyond the stone today Tomorrow the avenue And someday I may fly away To that place they call the moon Instinctive the desire Insatiable the quest Though the mind will journey freely It's imprisoned by the flesh I wandered beyond the stone today Tomorrow the avenue And someday I may fly away To that place they call the moon Someday I may just fly away To that place they call the moon

I'm not gonna turn into Jonathan Mann --------------------------------------------------- I've written songs by the hundreds But it took me a good thirty years There's a fella who's done what I've done Every trip 'round the Sun And it drives me to tears! Hey Jonathan Mann! The Song-a-day man! How do you do it? Is there some kind of plan? My life is so busy I've often asked "is he a clone or the name of a clan?" I wanna be just like Jonathan Mann So I put my nose to the grindstone To craft me some ditties to sing And I guess you could say That the stuff that I play Has some sway But it ain't got that swing Hey Jonathan Mann! The Song-a-day man! How do you do it? Is there some kind of plan? I've got places to see, And I love D&D So I budget my time as I can It's harder than <<quack>> to be Jonathan Mann [bridge... Jonathan Mann voiceover] I ain't got a song-a-day in me I'm sure as hell no Superman Though I try as I might My output's a fright That's alright I'll just do what I can Hey Jonathan Mann! The Song-a-day man! How do you do it? Is there some kind of plan? I've got volumes to read And a long Twitter feed And I've gotta get through all this spam So I'm not gonna turn into Jonathan Mann

====== I met a man and he asked me for water Though it was obvious I was a daughter of shame I did not know his name I met a man and he told me my story Married five times and now living with one I'd not wed I hung down my head Who was this man that so knew me? How could he see through the lies to my sorrow? Why did he want to speak to me I didn't know I didn't know I met a man and he offered me water So I'd never thirst and could then be a daughter of God A daughter of God I met a man and he gave his life for me Now I tell everyone come share his water of life To stop tears and strife Who was this man that so knew me? How could he see through the lies to my sorrow? Why did he want to speak to me I didn't know I didn't know Who was this man that so knows me? How can he see through the lies to my sorrows? Why would he want to speak to me? I didn't know He loved me so I didn't know He loves me so.

=========== Wouldn't Have Heather Miller [sitar intro] I wouldn't have done it If I'd known he was crazy I wouldn't have flown Before he woke up Norwegian wood costs a lot to install After the fire I've got nothing at all My wool rug is gone It was a gift from my mom The clock that kept time Was not even mine First shift in the morning is quite hard enough But some lug sleeping in my tub makes the showering rough. [sitar interlude] I thought it would be fun To bring home someone Now I know why I shouldn't have done it. [sitar outro]

A dreary harvest day Just west of the sea Beside the Law and Tay You will find me A shelter from the storm Is some corrugated iron With a bit of chimney pipe And paint pot filled with fire Will keep me warm... Will keep me warm... And The God of All Small Boys is looking down is looking down The God Of All Small Boys is looking down is looking down On me... Listen, you can hear The echoes of a war Our fathers shed their blood There is nothing more That we hold dear... That we hold dear... And The God of All Small Boys is looking down is looking down The God Of All Small Boys is looking down is looking down On me... On me... [bridge voiceover by Joe Lamb] See, he's the one who keeps us from breaking our necks every two minutes. Or sometimes lets us find pennies in the gutter. He invented fireworks and dogs and sticks and horses and mudge-puddles He's the one who keeps us safe. The God of All Small Boys is looking down is looking down The God Of All Small Boys is looking down is looking down On me... On me... On me... On me...

Teeth Marlon Barnes I know I've never been too good at brushing after every meal and I know I never floss my mother always told me son, be careful what you don't do inactions have a cost. this wiggle's getting worrysome I'm feeling my bicuspids falling out my gums Chorus: I'm spitting teeth, my white and pearlies flow like fountains I'm spitting teeth my mouth now has a vacancy If I'm asleep I hope I wake up and get out real soon so I can go brush continuously Verse 2: I've always liked mashed potatoes and apple sauce butterscotch pudding and ice cream I've never been too good at chewing my food and now my problem's only worsening No more chicken or cake a bowl of jello does not a sandwich, make and I hoped one day to get an appreciation for steak Chorus: I'm spitting teeth, my white and pearlies flow like fountains I'm spitting teeth my mouth now has a vacancy If I'm asleep I hope I wake up and get out real soon so I can go brush continuously bridge: left and right up and down (slow to fast) left and right up and down (fast to slow) left and right up and down (slow) left and right up and down (fast) left and right up and down (slow to fast) left and right up and down (fast to slow) circular motion circular motions (gargling) (spit) Chorus: I'm spitting teeth, my white and pearlies flow like fountains I'm spitting teeth my mouth is getting a vacancy If I'm asleep I hope I wake up and get out real soon so I can go brush continuously

Sexy In The Rain by Inverse T. Clown ============== You out-beautiful a sunset All the colors at your back Your aesthetics are beyond them Deeper than the zodiac And I know, I know It sounds a little strange 'Cause you look good in the twilight But you're sexy in the rain You look stunning in the starlight You look lovely by the moon Still, I'd rather have a dark night Hope that storm is coming soon And I know, I know It sounds a little strange 'Cause you look good in the moonlight But you're sexy in the rain As the storm begins to cloud break Leaving moisture in the air There's a rainbow that the dawn makes Even that cannot compare And I know, I know It sounds a little strange 'Cause you look good in the sunlight But you're sexy in the rain

My heart is heavy My lids are closed I've been lost on the roads I chose Way too many times I've talked to myself All evening, no reply Questions come quicker than answers lately And the morning doesn't come at all So you're gonna be leaving You wanna be free To start a new life Where the land meets the sea Where the tide hasn't time To dampen your dreams Where your heart rarely captures Any glimpses of me On the waterfront Sand and sail as far as the eye can see There on the waterfront Where the feeling of freedom is too good to believe Where there's wind and there's waves and plenty of space A routine and a dream to get lost in for days On the waterfront [instrumental break] My heart is heavy My eyes are closed And I've cut myself on this thorny rose One too many times I talked to myself All evening, no reply Questions come quicker than answers lately And the morning doesn't come at all So you tell me you're leaving You wanna be free To start a new life where the land meets the sea Where the tide hasn't time to dampen your dreams Where your heart rarely captures any glimpses of me On the waterfront Sand and sail as far as the eye can see There on the waterfront Where that feeling of freedom is too good to believe Where there's wind and there's waves and plenty of space A routine and a dream to get lost in for days So you'll never be leaving You'll always be free To start a new life where the land meets the sea Where the tide hasn't time to dampen your dreams Where you barely remember what we used to be On the waterfront

I had a dream last night In which everything wrong in my life went right And much to my surprise It was a quick transition It played out so vividly That's it's hard to describe what it did to me Suffice to say I took it As a premonition Today's the day I get a move on Today's the day I change Today's the day that I improve on Who I am and everything I do: Today's the day that I break up with you Just stop and think about All the times I gave in so that we'd work out If you look at the score I think I tip the balance But you prob'ly think that's great 'Cause you take and you drain and manipulate I guess every succubus Is gonna have those talents Today's the day that I get angry Today's the day I fight Today's the day that I harangue The telling-off that's way past overdue: Today's the day that I break up with you Don't look at me like that With your cute pouting lips and your big, sad eyes You're pretty, but you're pretty much a bitch It's time for you to see That the world is the world universally And nowhere does it say That you can run my planet So you take our history And your need for control and co-misery And brace yourself real good Then go ahead and cram it Today's the day that I'm the victor Today's the day I win Today's the day I do your sister Here's a toast to starting life anew: Today's the day that I wake up It's time to say I've had enough Today's the day that I break up with you
