Track Name: Bobcat
Who’s that?
Bobcat, Bobcat
What’s that?
Bobcat, Bobcat

He’s coming up on your scene
You’ve seen him walking the streets
You know he’s got what you need
He’s gonna set you free

Who’s that?
Bobcat, Bobcat
What’s that?
Bobcat, Bobcat

He’s pulling tricks from his sleeve
You’ve seen him lurk through your dreams
You don’t know what to believe
He’s gonna set you free

Floating out the window (and when you get there, you’ll know)
Strolling down the street (and when you get there, you’ll know)
Stopping for a picture (and when you get there, you’ll know)
with everyone he meets

People, snap your fingers (and when you get there, you’ll know)
People, stomp your feet (and when you get there, you’ll know)
Now give us a kiss, cuz was will be is (and when you get there, you’ll know)
when the Bobcat sets us free

He’s getting ready to feed
You’re so afraid you can’t breathe
You see his razor blade teeth
He’s gonna set you free

He’s purring like a machine
You floated up with the steam
You’re just a drop in the stream
He’s gonna set you free
Track Name: Whatever Happens Next
A mouth full of teeth can’t smile
A singer can’t be wrong
The tiger’s got a belly full of dandelions
Don’t chew, don’t chew

The spider’s got seven legs
The killer’s full of prayers
You fell asleep beneath the breathing man
Don’t shoe, don’t shoe

Is will be Was when Is is
Whatever happens next
Was is when Will Be was
Whatever happens next
Will Be will be Was when

The chalkboard cries your name
It’s your face on the box
I shook the hand of the handless man
Don’t choo, don’t choo

The greasy pig starts to squeal
Your brother’s out of luck
You got caught breathing gently on your sleeping self
Don’t you, don’t you

We found the other leg
Wouldn’t you like to know
The leg is in the garden, better check yourself
Don’t chew, don’t chew
Track Name: Handlebar Moustache
Give myself up like a little pig
Take a ride on my handlebar moustache
Pin me up like a little butterfly
Take a ride on my handlebar moustache, ungh

Ain't nothin like a moustache ride
To make me feel alive

Comin up here like a big pig
Take a ride on my handlebar moustache, hungh
Comin up here like a big pig
Take a what-what *snortsnortsnort* stache

Taco cheese ain't gonna do it
Take a ride on my… yeah

Taco cheese ain't gonna do it
Take a ride on my handlebar moustache

Here come, here it comes
Now space, space jam
That's funk, that's the funky team back there on the rhythm section
Give it up, for the octopus, yeah
Octopus eight-armed Willy
Willy van Nelson, octopus flippin-fingers, yeah
Five-finger discount, stealin pennies
From heaven
Ain't nothin free in life
Ain't not one thing that's free in life, people, just forget that, no
'Specially if you find yourself comin up here like a big pig
You know, I tell you what to do?
Yeah, I'll tell you what to do, yeah
Track Name: Courageous Captain Ted
Have you heard the story
Of courageous Captain Ted
He sailed across the ocean
and disappeared inside his head
 
He went out every morning
Until the stars came out at night
Searching and exploring
Hoping he would find
A reason to believe in
Something bigger than himself
But his nets all came up empty
No truth to buy or sell
 
Now he rides the waves up and down, up and down
Just to keep his feet off the ground
Afraid of wanting more
Now he finds his peace within the storm
And rides the waves away from the shore


All his neighbors' sticks and stones
Weighed so heavy on his home
Until one day the roof caved in
And he had to let it go

And from his heart he bled
‘Til all his tears turned red
Courageous Captain Ted

 
Now rides the waves up and down, up and down
Just to keep his feet off the ground
Afraid of wanting more
Now he finds his peace within the storm
And rides the waves away from the shore

Now old and gray he lay
On the broken bed he made
No one there to talk to
Just the echo of the waves

(So) He rides the waves up and down
Just to keep his feet off the ground
Wanting nothing more
Now he finds his peace within the storm
As he rides the waves just like he did before

Courageous Captain Ted…
Track Name: Drink the Milk
Drink the milk!

Djjjaaazzee

That was… shit!
Track Name: Friend Pills

Don’t feel okay

Are you misanthropic
Agoraphobic
Do you find yourself getting in your own way

Well, we’ve got something for you

Come and get your friend pills,
Talkin bout friend pills, friend pills
Come and get your friend pills,

Your teeth will be whiter
Always feel secure, get your old self back

Enjoy conversation, center of attention
When you tell a joke, everyone will laugh

Insomnia

The love boat
Extraterrestrial invasion
Big sticks

Track Name: Cocaine Corral
I never really learned to tie my shoes
I had no place to go
I had to leave that old scratch ticket town
Where the winter nights are cold

I wish I could get out of here
But I don’t know how
It’s just another shootout at the Cocaine Corral

Headed out to the Wild West
For the bar fights and saloons
Now I’m just laid out on the couch
Horizontal point of view

I wish I could get out of here
But I don’t know how
It’s just another shootout at the Cocaine Corral

Cocaine Corral
Gather up your pals
We’ve got a long way to go
Cocaine Corral
You better hunker down
This night is going slow

I’ll take another shot this time around
But I’m shaking in my bones
I’d rather not even make a sound
And slip back in the fold
I wish I could get out of here
But I don’t know how

It’s just another shootout at the Cocaine Corral
Track Name: You Can't Hold Space
You can hold my hand
I can hold your face
We can hold out
But you can’t hold space

You can hold your breath
I can hold your place
We can hold still
But you can’t hold space

You can hold your tongue
You can say grace
We can hold on
But you can’t hold space

She blew me a kiss from the taco stand
And I couldn’t hold it so she wet my plants
Oh no, I don’t know
She had me pegged for a burrito man
And took me out to the salsa dance
Oh no, I don’t know
Her green eyes twankled in the neon light
And then she said somethin that just aint right
Oh no, I don’t know
Well, she cracked a joke, and then I cracked the case
You can stop time but you can’t hold space
Oh no, I don’t know

And she said
Space is made of emptiness and gas and dust
We think that we can hold it but the joke’s on us
Track Name: Chasing My Imagination
You I we

I looked up at the stars tonight
And I saw nothing
But in my heart I know each one
Is a lantern

Chasing my imagination
Track Name: Don't Fight Back
If you're staying at the Breezy Motel
And your room is hot as hell
Don't fight back

If you're flying just a little too high
And your tethers have become untied
Don't fight back

And we were both just holding on
As people seem to do
And there was nothing left at all
Nothing left to do
We're all on this one-way track
So don't fight back

You're eating from a silver spoon
And nothing ever happens too soon
Don't fight back

You finally accept your fate
Late is never too late
So don't fight back

If you're heading towards the finish line
Running out of precious time
Don't fight back

You're coming up against the end
Be sure to bring a couple friends
