Track Name: granola child
CH
get that, put it in your
system - don't you
like it, love it,
want more of it
i could give it to you,
you could give it to me,
we could give it away,
i'm talkin' 'bout love

granola child - i
like to let you catch me
looking at you - if there was
someone else i coulda love more it
woulda been you -
don't take it for a show - just
wait wait just wait
- yeah you
throw that look around - i don't
think you know you do it - one of your
shoes is on the ground - and i'm
pretty sure you know it - you could
have it if you tried - just
stop stop don't stop
letting me love you from
way over here - just
thinking about you turns me
on my dear - and
if i hang around too long, you'll
figure it out, i fear - it
gets to be the secret that i'd
never let you near

CH

granola child - you
claim you're no musician but i
like your song - it
sings to me and tends to blur what's
right and wrong - and
if i look away from you it
might be gone - but it's
good to know we've got this
incredible bond

granola child - it
might not be about that for you but it
is for me - if there was
something that you coulda tried more it
woulda been me - but you
took it for a show - and then you
stop stop stopped - but you
still let me love you from
way over here - just
thinking about you turns me
on my dear - and
if i hang around too long, you'll
figure it out i fear - it
gets to be the secret that i'd
never let you near

darling you got me
without even trying
kept me right there without
crossing the line
i know you won't make a move and
neither will i - cause
if we did we'd surely know how
fast we lost our minds -
and pride!


granola child - i
like to let you catch me
looking at you - honey
i'm so glad my path ran right
into you - go on,
take it for a show,
i'll just keep on
loving you darling from
way over here - just
thinking about you turns me
on, my dear - and if i just
ignore it, this will
surely disappear
Track Name: harmonious anger
i didn't even know if i could
stop that mess
i was slipping in and out of
conciousness
staying there forever's what i
always professed, i
never planned to quit it

until it
took me down like it
did before, made me
think so much that my
mouth got sore. it was a
time that i remember though i'd
like to forget about the
pain that comes along with letting
go of regret

see, the
dizzy light of darkness is de-
cievingly attractive; it
tricks us into hiding in the
skin of shallow action, but when
enemies take the steps that lead the
people that they hate, it's
easier than you'd think to find the
ways we all relate, like the
act of bombing people, just be-
cause they bombed us first. if we
keep on throwing stones we'll simply
find out who's the best and worst in the
game of throwing stones. who's
got the biggest stone? now
that's the way to win the biggest
throne - who's got the biggest
stone
Track Name: white home change
clouds of cotton have a tendency to fluctuate, if you
look away for too long - the
crust of the tide washes in and out without
really taking any shape or form
the glimpse of light was there you swear, but
all you know now is that it's gone

they burned you at the stake
but there never was a match
you always think you made it
til they let you know the catch

puffin' marijuana cigarettes'll shift the shade over to
red in your eyes
come in the form of an orgasm is nice and sticky, creamy warm un-
til it dries
television static can perpetuate the mind to differentiate
fool from wise

they burned you at the stake
but there never was a flame
you always think you made it
but your heaven never came

powder on the ground, on the trees, from the sky, shines the most, but dies, in the sun
powder on the mirror reflects exactly what your
mama told you never to become

they burned you at the stake
but there never was a spark
you always think you made it babe
but you're still in the dark

they burned you at the stake
but they never feel the heat
they always think they got you babe but
you don't miss a beat
Track Name: war money
come and take a trip into
legends and lore where they
take all of the way money
give it to the poor, like a
quiet rebellion, they
carry the flag. once you
grab the torch, ain't no
turning back. get a
crowd everyone in the
world'll hear, so
loud it'll crush
each and every fear.

they say
pass the pipe and let us think, 'cause
if we play, we play for keeps. it
takes a lot of fuel to burn that deep. the
question, well, it may come up; is
this all just a game of luck
maybe we're just trying to
fill our cup

you'll see the
smokers giving out their very
last cigarettes,
strummers and pluckers
throwing out frets
enemies deciding that they
wanna be friends in the
end they connected over
cult classic films
sleepers sharing details of most
intimate dreams; they
don't consider boundries,
zippers or seams.

you see that
carpenter? he just gave out his
very last nail, and a
skier over there's just
handing out rails. this guy
used to be a taker, now he's
giving it out. and
everybody knows what we're talking about.
those with fire
share the flames. the a-
nonymous announce their
secretive names. the
culture of madness starts
making more sense. it
cleans up the world with a
wash and a rinse. every-
body finds another with
mutual desires, de-
tangling the fears of de-
ciding to dewire. the
act of banning books will
be forever banned; we
don't consider don't. or
won't. or can't.
Track Name: violet high
violet high

hey there - you in that red hat
i like your style
what's your name, gimme your name
or is that just the kind of thing
that gets in the way

hey there - you in that blue shirt
i like your style
what's your name, gimme your name
or is that just the kind of thing
that gets in the way

CH
i'll try anything once and
that includes you - i've
got to get that violet high, one's
red and the other one's blue

red whispers sweet somethings in my ear, but
blue, you put the lies back in truth or dare
blue, your right hand slips into my left, but
red, i've got my other hand wrapped
right around your chest

[CH]

you'd think the difference was
day and night, but
i tell you that purple shade is
quite all right
take the stage
count to five
when the elephant ass
begins to cry

blue approves my achromatic photos, and
red wears whigs of any color in the rain -
see, red, blue and i,
we put our opinions aside - we all
play in the same sandbox and get each
other violet high

see, once upon a time,
there was only one party,
but after ham, mad, pink and jack
all began to get rowdy,
everybody started picking sides
and fighting the gentleman's war
but it's
been over two hundred years
and i can't figure
out what they're fighting for

[CH]x2
