Alma 02:21
All my desire Burns like a fire Alma, oh Alma She pours over me like rain on a warm autumn night Takes the unpredictable path of a zig-zagging drop And after gravity sets in slowly gaining momentum We finally merge as one plump raindrop, drip drip All my desire Burns like a fire Alma, oh Alma She echoes through time and space everywhere all at once Occupies one million hearts from here to Palestine And I don't know much 'bout nothing but I do know that I Have never ever seen again a creature that's so refined All my desire Burns like a fire Alma, oh Alma All my love Alma life Alma love All my life She comes from Brooklyn ain't she so good-lookin'

Sophisticate 02:55
Involuntarily like a sneeze You are my incurable disease Take my name, take whatever you please Take my name What an unusual way For a sophisticate to behave Break my heart, take my stuff Cut me out, write it down Damn near everyday Indolent, airily faking these Social cues, so shook up on my knees Take my name, take whatever you please Take my name What an unusual way For a sophisticate to behave Break my heart, take my stuff Cut me out, write it down Damn near everyday

Burg 04:48
Did the birdsongs bring a tear to your eye As you strolled past the choir for the very last time It's no hallejulah, but it'll do just fine Handel's Messiah preaching down from a powerline Keep on swinging, Burg We'll all be along shortly And what of your family, the wife and kids you left behind Didn't know their sweet old daddy was so eager to go bye-bye-bye No more fighting and shouting, no summer days with apple pie No more birthday parties, no more promises that turn into lies Keep on swinging, Burg We'll all be along shortly Can you hear the little birdies singing? Way up in the tree tops, they're singing and it's so beautiful I think I could just lay down and die When your vision turns black You'll know that you're never ever ever ever coming back When the tight rope goes slack When your head hits the floor with a crack Keep on swinging, Burg We'll all be along shortly Here I come, Burg I'm comin' for ya baby Keep on swinging, Burg We'll all be along shortly, baby, I assure you

Where did the time go? Sifting through the trees Fond memories of a summer breeze And I wonder where I'll go next on my journey Won't you take your place to the side of me? Where the music is loud and the sun goes down With the whiskey and the debutantes That's where I'll go

Alright, ye salty dogs, one-two-three, one-two-three! Follow me into the Hickory Grove Thickets of prickly briar patches grow Deeper and darker, how far can we go? Will your unraveling mind start to fold? Oh weary wanderer, you're lost and alone Come out of the cold, come inside my hole Oh weary traveler, come in and unravel Your rambling mind, pull the flesh from the rind I don't feel so good Oh weary wanderer, your past is unknown And yet your future is all but set in stone Oh weary drifter, this tincture will lift your Spirits into the sky, so we'll drink, you and I Somebody get me offa this thing Follow me into the Hickory Grove Thickets of prickly briar patches grow Deeper and darker, how far can we go Will your unraveling mind start to fold? Follow me into the Hickory Grove Thickets of prickly briar patches grow Deeper and darker, how far can we go? Can you be lost if there's nowhere to go? I'm allergic to shellfish
