Track Name: Same Page
Last night at Licha’s, Leo was singing
We were looking famous and fool
Craigie was preaching
Saving me from reaching
Too high into an empty sky
He said what matters is right here
What matters is right now
What matters is that we’re in it together
Even when we’re alone on the ground

So girl give up that loneliness contest
No one’s ever gonna win
Forget how you wanted to run
Forget the why and when
Cuz we’re on the same page my friend
That’s right, we’re on the same page my friend

We’re done with Dave’s boxcar bullshit
He ain’t ever been on a train
Brother, show me your wounds
What, ya ain’t got none?
Was nothing worth the price of the pain?
Oh, I’m climbing a mountain
I’m digging a hole
Am i better or worse for the wear?
Finding blessings in the bullshit
Breathing carbon up with the air

And I’m trying to give up this loneliness contest
No ones ever gonna win
Trying to forget how I wanted to run
Forget the why and when
Cuz we’re on the same page my friend
That’s right we’re on the same page my friend

I could quit gigging and get a job
Turning in my time for the pay
Lock my body and soul in the prison of toil
I’m worse off when I stay
Or I could get bolder, and hit the road harder
I’m better with the come and go
Maybe we’ll always be minor poets
Maybe we’ll stay down low
Cuz we’re on the same page I know

Oh and I’m giving up this loneliness contest
No one’s ever gonna win
But I can’t forget how I wanted to run
Forget the why and when
Cuz we’re on the same page my friend
Track Name: Cult of Two
CULT OF TWO

I’m not good at sitting round being bored
Baby you could win a workaholic award
My baby goes to burning man
Got a white girl tan
Lives in a van, oh yeah

Cult of two
It’s me and you

You rock the shirt shorts
I got my mumu
Only eat fruit the earth gives to you
I got my weed pen and I’m ready to bend
At the 10pm yoga class full of gay men

You got the gold chain grandma gave to you
I got lululemon from the California zoo

Cult of two
It’s what we do

We get off
We don’t stop
You got that strange pussy syndrome
You can’t get enough of em

You wanna make love to a pregnant woman
I want a daddy I can call my own
The plot thickens when you stick the tip in
No job, no kids, write songs
Make the beat sick

We get high
It’s how we get by
Cult of two
Cult of two
Man, it’s me and you
Track Name: Little
Showed her face to the mirror
Girl we got a day to shine
Painted layers of make-up on
Bringing out the woman inside
Shaved all the way down her long legs
Momma’s voice yelling deep inside her head
You’re just a little, you’re just a little, you’re just a little boy in a dress

Showed her smile to the street man
He said girl, you lookin’ good
Toned down her swagger
Passing fast as she could
Feels him follow her to the show
Heart pound walking past the windows
And she’s just a little, she’s just a little, she’s just a little tired of this place

Showed her soul to the stage lights
Naked just for you
You want a little bit more of her
Words a silver screw
Beneath the makeup and the smile
She is just a girl wishing for the world
She’s not here for the money or the mirrors or the lines
She’s here for love
She wants to love you
And baby she wants to be loved by you

She’s not a little, she’s not a little
She’s not a little boy in a dress

She got the movie star glasses
And a strawberry sundress
Walks the streets of Manhattan
The suits are not impressed
She’s a lightswitch
Turns it on and off
The brightest diamond goes invisible
Now she just a little, she’s just a little
Lady in a summer dress
Track Name: Sister Station
Give me one more anyone, I’ll drink ‘em down
Give me more for my money and I’ll spread it around
Give me a cowgirl to cut around town
Can’t fold em til ya hold em

Give me a rich man, I’ll make him fall
Give me a cowboy, I’ll bust his balls
Give me a trucker for tonight’s long haul
I’ll hold ‘em then I’ll fold ‘em

Sister station, times a’wasting
(he’s dialing ya in, he’s pushing ya back)
Rolling on the radio dial
He got her in the back of his black Cadillac
If a cliché a day keeps the doctor away, she’s healthy

I’ll put a little poison in your cup
I'll let ya down easy if you call my bluff
How ya like to play in my pickup truck?
Can’t fold it til ya hold it

Sister fister, won’t you be my mister
(I’m rolling it up, I’m throwing it back)
Snorting down another line
She got me too high to try
If a pussy a day keeps the doctor away, I’m healthy

I tried to taste a little
But it caught in my teeth
Babe I love you but I gotta be free
2x2 ain’t three
Don’t wanna have your babies
Aint never gonna be no you and me

Sister station, worry is wasting
(I’m dialing ya in, I’m pushing ya back)
Rolling through red July
I got ya too high to cry
Another castaway keeps the doctor away
Breathe it in and let it fade away
Don’t take it personally
Ya can’t fold em til ya hold em
Track Name: Blue Moonshine
Cruising up the canyon
Coming down the mountain side
Bringing mason jars and music
Singing out to get me high
Safety please, Saint Christopher
For all who travel around the world
Chasing all the shades of blue in the sky

I got that blue moon shining on me
Campfire by a hot springs
Crooning cottonwood leafs
And I’ll sing sing sing
Cuz I can sing
Strumming on the strings
Dance moon dance moon
Sing

Cruising miles and miles of mother earth
California, Colorado
I just had to
She gives me love
She gave me birth
I give her songs
Its what I’m worth
Songbird ain’t afraid to sing for free

Got that blue moon shine in my drink
Pacific breeze under the redwood trees
And I’ll sing sing sing
Cuz I can sing
Strumming on the strings
Dance moon dance moon sing

Full moon Friday night alive
Moto Guzzi desert ride
Fly by sage and sand
She holds my hand
Once in a blue moon
So I’ll see you in September
But I’m hopping on the highway

And I got that blue moonshine in my smoke
Taking just a little toke
Aint gonna go for broke
And I’ll sing sing sing
Cuz I can sing
Strumming on the strings
Dance moon dance moon
Sing
