Track Name: Walthers Estate
Out in the woods with my two friends, and it's dark outside cuz it's night time
We're next to a stream and it sounds so, so soothing
Travelled north, up to Hysteria
It's where we found Grandma
Roasted hot dogs on the fire
Flew our lamps and then they grew brighter
We took a walk down the path and looked at the stars, looked at the stars
Track Name: Happy Day
I've got a happy day
Locked away for another rainy stay
Oh, I've got a happy day
Locked away for a rainy day

When we locked ourselves inside your room
Oh, to say I do
And your eyes lit up like fire
As I dropped the match between

Oh, I've got a happy day
Locked away for when the rain stays
Oh, I've got a happy day
Locked away for a rainy day

I think she's pretty dressed in black
Oh, and when she's lying on her back
You may think this obscene
but Genesis 1, 2, 3 understands me

I've got a rainy day
but I don't know where she's gone away
Oh, it looks like it's locked from the outside
Time to break down these walls
Track Name: Bacon Was Burnt
In this small town
I don't know where I am
In this small town
It's not hard to find a friend

We made breakfast this morning
And I think it meant more that we made it
It made it taste a little better

The bacon was burnt but I said that I like it that way
It made me feel just a little bit better
Track Name: Bob Dylan
From dust to dust and ashes to ashes
That's what the old man told me
As he held the hands of every boy and man
every girl and woman

And here I stand underneath the tree
Trying to think of what the old man told me today
Is it a trap? Is it a trap? Or will he,
Will it free me with summer winds

And I thought to myself
This is the day, this is the day
I can't wait for tomorrow, no, this is the day
I can't wait for tomorrow, my heart's no longer content
The trees and the bees, well they don't always contend to me
Track Name: My Friends and Me
Surrounded by trees
In a forrest full of green
Just my friends and me
Track Name: I Should Have Heeded His Advice
It's good to talk, but not too deep
Just deep enough so the talk has meaning

Walk around in circles always
If you like walking in circles always
If you don't, then follow Me
Pick up your cross and I'll give you meaning and a purpose

I want to be just like a tree
Rooted next to a stream
I wanna live a life that's pure
Tell me, what's the cure?
The stream...

I wanna be just like a tree
That's rooted by the stream
I wanna be just like a tree
That's rooted by the stream
And the stream is You
The stream is You
The stream is You
Track Name: Cabin Time
Poems:
Hard Times Come Again No More, by Stephen Foster
Come Where My Love Lies Dreaming, by Stephen Foster
My Lord, What a Mourning, a negro spiritual
Track Name: Take Me Back
You are my friend, you are my friend today
And I'm your friend, I'm your friend always
But when you see me dressed in black
You damn well better not take me back

I got problems, problems just like you
So much better, we're not lonely too

But when you see me dressed in black
You damn well better not take me back
Cuz I've hung around with you, my dear
I've seen you at your worst, full of tears

When you see me dressed in black
You damn well better not take me back
Track Name: Power Anthem 6000
We are the power that cannot be contained
We are the product of books and video games
We are the lines that are drawn in between
Sidewalk chalk and things unseen
Track Name: No Other
You are God, and there is no other God

You fill up the ocean with water
You feed all the animals and give them shelter
You hold my past, You hold my thoughts, You hold my future
Who is like You, Lord
Who is like You, Lord
Who is like You?

You are God, and there is no other God

Oh what a shame in these idols
That we've made with our own hands
They wither away, rot and decay
Not a moment past

My God is eternal, He lasts forever
Before and after, He's already been there

You are God, and there is no other God
