Track Name: Hope for the Best
Whether we'll fetch a pail from the water well
whether we'll come tumbling down the hill
Head over heels

Hope for the best
Put to the test
The first will be last
the cursed will be blessed
lay me down to rest
lay me down to rest

Whether we'll spend the night in the jail cell
whether we'll hear the toll of the wake-up bell
I can't tell

We won't get depressed
It's all just in jest
The first will be last
the cursed will be blessed
lay me down to rest
lay me down to rest

As we come round the bend again
trying and failing to make amends
sending every friendship to horizon's end
sink or swim, I'll remember them, remember when
we commandeered the friendship and steered it in
invisible worlds of invincible children
where realms of real and pretend would blend, sea and land
had our sails been sewn up, had we mended them or tended them
we would not have grown up, we'd've still had a hand to lend
still had a hand to hold
still had a hand to lend
pull me up, I'm growing old
I'm growing old.

As we come round the Earth's bend again
doing what we can to make amends
every lovely friendship is rendered
a loan, a present to be returned to sender
all alone, unpleasant, our ship burned down to cinders
all one, we're presently torn asunder
in Oceans, our own weight is pulling us under
pulling us under
pulling us under

Hope for the best
put to the test
we won't get depressed
it's all just in jest
the first will be last
the cursed will be blessed
lay me down to rest
lay me down to rest

Scammed a Greyhound ticket to the Great Unknown
Feeling lonesome but I'm not alone
Going just to go, follow the flow, wind blown
Sea to shining sea, seeing what I'm shown

Hopped a Freight Train bound for far away from my home
Feeling homesick but so sick of home
Landscapes and open roads before me to roam
Great escape hoping we've got reason to hope.
Track Name: Hocus Pocus Broke His Focus
In my head, my friends say and do things they never did or said.
Tired of turning other people entirely into other people.
Instead of getting out of my head, out of my mind's loose ends,
out from in this poison potion's delusion

In & Out & In, Shaking all about
In & Out & In,Turn yourself around
In & Out & In, That's what it's all about

One reason why I'm traveling is
to figure out some reason why I'm traveling.
Though that freight train takes me straight to a new state's name
I'm still stuck in the same state of brain: clean slate confusion

In & Out & In, Shaking all about
In & Out & In,Turn yourself around
In & Out & In, That's what it's all about

Life eats life alive to survive and thrive,
death devours life, life revives death
Give or Take, a snake makes to swallow its own tail
eats an entree of its own entrails
While this life will kill, still, I shall feel ill when
I'm fooled falling for reel-to-reeled right in
Losing my amusement at illusions

In & Out & In,Turn yourself around
In & Out & In, Shaking all about
In & Out & In, That's what it's all about

What is it all about?
That's what it's all about!
Track Name: Abbie Hoffman Offed Himself
Free speech is the right to shout, "Theatre!" in a crowded fire.
Track Name: I Could Die Right Now
I could die right now, I don't care...

But won't you save me some of that sunlight, before the night
Won't you save me a piece of that sweet life, I'll live it right

I could die right now, I don't care...

Don't you fret over that sunset, we'll dream all night
If you let go from the get go, we'll be alright
we'll be alright

I could die right now, I don't care...
Track Name: Space Pirates
Yes, the world is full of fools
and I am one, and you are too,
O, I guess our lives just fuel the feeling
that I stole mine, and you're still stealing
Uh oh.

So let's terrorize the skies
we'll steal a rocketship, leave without goodbyes
'cause we're the terror of the final frontier
floating here and there, astronaut buccaneers
Uh Oh

Pirates of the stars, plundering space stations
No loyalties, we are enemies of all nations

Zoom, zoom, zoom fly me to the moon
bury our treasure, leave it to rot there forever

'cause all we wanna rob is that sweet thang tang
NASA makes the meals and we'll steal 'em and sing
all we wanna rob is that sweet thang, sweet thang tang

The Pirate's life is the life for us,
take no prisoners, they'll make no fuss
Lawless space is the place to sail
make 'em walk the airlock, NASA's hot on our trail
Uh Oh

We'll fly, fly, fly, & we'll float float float
We'll fly, fly, fly, & we'll float float float
We'll fly, fly, fly, & we'll float float float
& we'll fuel the feeling & we'll still go on stealing

'cause the Pirate's Life is the life for us
when they ask us why
we'll tell 'em, "just because"
The Pirate's life is the life for us
we'll sail the stars, we'll swear and we'll cuss
The fucking space pirate's life is so much fun
we'll steal a rocketship and steer it straight for,
straight for the sun

O, let's run away, all fun and play
O, let's climb the sky, fly far away
O, we'll shoot for the stars, far from today
O, let's lose our minds, we'll find a way
Track Name: Hymn for Aaron
Hymn for Aaron

I found out my old best friend is back
(Back in the loony bin)
Yet, they let me walk the streets free
it seems we can't agree on a reality,
who is sane, who is crazy?
I find I'm lost inside my mind
kind of like a labyrinth with landmines
traveling, tracking where I tread with red thread unraveling,
reach the center--I'm naked

As the Apple seed dreams happily
of the sapling tree it'll grow to be
it cannot see as it naps in peace,
it'll be snapped to pieces, snapped to pieces

My old friend Aaron is back,
(Back in the loony bin)
We used to fly so high but I
came clean and he kept getting higher and higher
never tiring until the sun set his aspiring wings on fire

As the Apple seed dreams happily
of the sapling tree it'll grow to be
it cannot see as it naps in peace,
it'll be snapped to pieces, snapped to pieces

And I, I never said goodbye
Goodbye, we'll try to get by
On this ride, where everything must die
Goodbye, goodbye, I'll see you on the dark side
We'll finally find, we'll finally find the peace of puzzled minds
