Track Name: Dear Old Me
I have died
One thousand times
and seen myself lie on the floor

Dead to the world
but alive and free
indulging in what's unseen

I have lied to dear old Me
one hundred thousand
thousand times
tumultuous this little spree
all that darkness is just
dear old me

I never know where to go
there's nothing left
for you or me to know

Deadly dreams
Deadly screams down at
the bottom of my mind

I can't see
Oh please
let me be
ego must die!

Please don't take me away
I just wanna stay home
and play
So many thoughts
so many minds
I wish it was
so much kinder
I just
wish that my
ego would die
Track Name: Early Year Daze
Take
Take me home
Where?
I don't know
I don't know

Stay
in the early year daze
Play
in the childish way

Early year daze
Early year daze
Early year daze

Stay
in the childish way

I don't know if I can stay
I don't got much left to say
I'm gonna take right back
what's rightfully mine
it's just a matter of time

I'm going home
back where I
can be all alone

and I'm
going home
back where I
can be all alone
Track Name: Mystery
Yea
It's all goin' down inside
my head
And I think I'd rather be there
instead

it's all goin' down inside my head

Yea it's all goin' down inside my head
and I think I'd rather be there instead

Take me down into your mind
I can't get enough of your kind
I wanna know what it means to be
behind your eyes and lookin' at me

The feminine mind's a mystery
there's just so much goin' on beneath
Yea
I tried to figure it out, I can't succeed
No no no no
I can't succeed

'Cause it's all goin' down inside my head
I think I'd rather be there instead
Yea
'Cause it's all goin' down inside my head
and I think I'd rather be there instead

It's all goin' down now
Come on now

So take me down into your mind
I can't get enough of your kind
Track Name: Mother Earth and Father Mind
Last night
I found the new light
of Mother Earth
and
Father Mind

She's the womb
and he
just consumes

But then there was a thought
He knew it
everything was wrong he'd been taught
So then
Again
Again he went back home
Again again and again he went on back home

A place where he'd ought to be
with Mother a dream that he could
see
A place where he'd ought to be
with Mother she's the womb

She couldn't believe
What
he had seen
She knew that his heart had died
then and there She cried
"Come back to me
together we can be free
Come back to me
together we can be free"
Track Name: Nostalgia for Paradise
And I've got
a selfish heart
and I
don't wanna share
any love or any care

The lights are on
but no one is home
So please don't bother me
don't bother me please

And I don't care how beautiful you are
cause we're all monsters
inside our hearts

And I've got nostalgia for paradise
and I've got nostalgia for paradise
Track Name: Intermission
(instrumental)
Track Name: Fly Through the Tunnel
Fly through the tunnel
You don't wanna get
Stuck inside
Fly through the tunnel
And I don't wanna lose my mind

Sometimes you take too much
of that wonderful LSD
Locked in the tunnel of eyes
Trillions of psychic spies

I tried to break on through
Jim Morrison told me to
Keep on goin' keep on goin'
keep on goin' through

Fly through the tunnel
You don't wanna get
Stuck inside
Fly through the tunnel
And I don't wanna lose my mind

Extra sensory perception
A million things in each direction
A new meaning to the million mile stare
There's nothing quite like it that can compare
Oh no

Fly through the tunnel
You don't wanna get
Stuck inside
Fly through the tunnel
And I don't wanna lose my mind

I tried to break on through
Jim Morrison told me to
Keep on goin' keep on goin'
keep on goin' through

Fly through the tunnel
You don't wanna get
Stuck inside
Fly through the tunnel
And I don't wanna lose my mind
Track Name: Lower
I can't seem to let myself go
It's all so scary and I know
you know
To let go

To kill my desire
For something that's
so much higher
higher
higher
to let go
to let go

And I'll never write a song
for no one

You're all a living reminder
the beauty takes me lower
and lower
and lower
to let go
lower

And I'll never write a song
for no one
Track Name: Mother Earth and Father Mind II (Togetherness)
Mother said,
"Don't you even care?
Son, your thoughts,
your heart
I love you to death"

I've given you everything
so you can see
and you can breathe
and feel what it is to be free

I know we can make it
you and me

Symbiotic relationship
a love that was meant to be

Mother said,
"Don't you even care?
Son, your thoughts,
your heart
I love you to death"

Don't do what you 'think'
just do what feels right
Use your heart that's what it's for
You only get one and
not
one more

I know we can make it
you and me
Symbiotic relationship
a love that was meant to be

Togetherness
at last
Togetherness
at last
Track Name: Life's Just a Play
I'm just starting to believe
in myself again
Things are pretty good
I can't complain

Forget the mind
hold on to now
be here
just
be
here

Live for today
go out
and play

A lot to learn
too much to see
there's always more right underneath
the moving picture's all you see

and I'm just starting to believe in myself again
things are pretty good I can't complain

I'm just starting to see that
I
just need to
be

Life's just a play
a short stay

Feel your body
hear your soul
it's all real
no better deal

Live for today
go out
and play
