Nicotine & Vitamin C

A ragged road
And a setting sun
A big old moon
Mama here I come
I ain’t afraid
To be alone
Like you
Like you

Nicotine and vitamin C
Everything is good to me
Ever since I started walking home
Home to you
You

I got a mac you got a nine
Everything’s gonna be all right
First we stumble, then we fall
You can’t call
At all
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba Ba ba ba ba ba Ba ba ba Ba ba ba

Water table’s seven feet
That’s close enough for me
I’m heading for the canyons of my mind
Through the pines
The pines
Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaa

A ragged road
And a setting sun
A big old moon
Mama here I come
I ain’t afraid
To be alone
Like you, like you, like you

Turn That Airplane Around

Miss Winters she raised up twelve wild sons up into the halls of wealth
But when that agent came yesterday she was all by herself
An ice cold hand on her shoulder and the wink of a sorrowful eye
And eighty-six years of breathing right just flashed across the sky
And they cried
Turn that airplane around sir
Please turn that airplane around
Set those wheels back on the ground
Please turn that airplane around

Sweet Lucy was just nine years old a sight for any sore eyes
Life was all about jumping rope and flying kites up in the sky
She never felt that agent’s hand and she never felt any pain
A flash of light and a lightning strike now she’s on that plane
Turn that airplane around sir
Please turn that airplane around
How could you take our beautiful child
With so much life left to come
Turn that airplane around sir
Please turn that airplane around
Because we can’t make it with out her
Please turn that airplane around

I thought I felt the agent’s hand, heard him come creeping right by
And I tried to persuade him it was not my time yet to fly
But he just stood there silent and timeless as the sun
There was no use resisting for my time certainly had come
And I cried
Turn this airplane around sir
Please turn this airplane around
It can’t be me that you’re here to see
With so many things left undone
Turn this airplane around, sir
Please turn this airplane around
Just one more day down on this earth
Please turn this airplane around

The Beautiful Narcotic Place I Reside

There’s a breeze on the hilltop
And a cloud on the sky
There’s a cabin a hundred years older than I
And I know I can get there
But I can’t can close my eyes

The beautiful narcotic place I reside

I walk through the forest and I sit in the stream
Trees all around me and I slip into a dream
And I think I hear hear thunder or just a lone F16

The beautiful narcotic place I reside
Ooh ooh ooh

It’s over, it’s over
It just might be over
Where once I saw greed
I see the innocent tribe

Who’s that driving my car it ain’t me
Cause I’m a hundred feet up a tree
And you won’t have to dope me, I’m already asleep

The beautiful narcotic place I reside
Ooh ooh ooh

I See Hawks in L.A.

I see hawks in L.A.
I see hawks in L.A.
If you see hawks
Then maybe we should talk
I see hawks in L.A.

I hear trains in the night
I hear trains in the night
Lonesome sound
Lonesome as this town
I hear trains in the night

One more day on the 605
What if this place got buried alive?
The biggest quake the world’s ever seen
Let the snakes take over again

Do you watch clouds disappear?
Do you watch clouds disappear?
If clouds disappear
I’ll lend you an ear
Do you watch clouds disappear?

Just as I’m about to leave this town
Clouds roll in and the rain comes down
Just enough to make me laugh
Big tree makes the sidewalk crack

I see hawks in L.A.
I see hawks in L.A.
I see hawks in L.A.
I see hawks in L.A.

The Mystery of Life

The mystery of life is never ending
Should a man take a wife
Or face the sunrise alone
In the stillness of the night
A voice will come a callin’
No matter what your means
The answer has no price

You may blame forgotten history
You may be ashamed of the treachery of men
But in the end it is each man’s destiny
To face the mystery of life alone
Of life alone

A promise never kept and a love affair betrayed
All the tears that you have wept for the righteous and the brave
And the moments that have crept from the spotlight of your memory
Sit like stones beneath a stream illuminating like a dream

CHORUS

Duty to Our Pod

It’s a long long way
To Californi-ay
And the whales that are gray
Are telling stories along the way
Mama whale’s got a lot to do
For that warm water rendezvous

And even if there is no God
She’s got a duty to her pod
Hey, mama
Make a match for me

Fourteen maidens and her hands are full
Riding herd on the clumsy bulls
She’s got to make the maidens a match
So they can make a whole new batch

Mama whale said to me
I should ask you to dance
I circled you for a time or two
And thus began a whale romance
In the sunny Mexico waters
We spawned a great gray daughter

CHORUS

Honey, it’s our biological duty
To help procreation
Let’s drag ourselves over to The Roost
Before it’s too late

Don’t Bury Me

I’m gonna stay alive when I die
I’m gonna stay alive when I die
Don’t fold my hands don’t close my eyes
Or I’ll give you a big surprise
I’m gonna stay alive when I die

Don’t you say your prayers over me
Don’t you say your prayers over me
The Father, Son, and Lucifer
They’ll have to wait another year
Don’t you say your prayers over me

I never died myself, how about you?
How’re we supposed to know that it’s true?
Just because you laid her in the ground
How do you know she ain’t out on the town?

Don’t you try to bury me when I die
Don’t you try to bury me when I die
I’ll sprout wings and learn to fly
I’ll rise up and punch you in the eye
Don’t you try to bury me when I die

Baby

Well we’ve watched six movies
Talked on the telephone one hundred times
Went to breakfast early in morning
And once late at night

Baby Do you mind
If I call you baby

I stopped calling all the other girls I know
I haven’t checked my messages or listened to my phone
Looks like I’m staying home tonight

We didn’t kiss the first night I slept in your bed
You fell asleep and I stayed up and read
I watched you sleeping
CHORUS

It’s October and I’m thinking about what you’re doing New Years
What the hell did I do last year?
I think about holding you close when the cold wind comes
