Track Name: Exposure To Living
Exposure to Living

Shee looks like a little dolly all tattered and torn at the seams
No one can reach her cause her gaze is fixed on her dreams

The beauty of her creases has been worn by the harshness of men
Exposure to living has colored her hair and her skin

Chorus:

But I like her, I like her, I like her O.K.

Her dog has been traveling with her, more faithful than any man
He too looks the worst for wear, but he still has some teeth to chew


His coat is kind of mangy, and his bark is kind of hoarse
Exposure to living let’s nature take it’s coarse

But I like him, I like him, I like him O.K.

Instrumental

The car that she drives is yellow, more reliable than any man
One seat for her one seat for her dog, and an engine that just won’t quit

The trunk holds all her belongings and it barely closes shut
Exposure to living, has left it full of rust

But I like it, I like it, I like it O.K.
And I like her, I like her, I like her dog O.K.
Track Name: Big Trucks
Big Trucks

Runnin’n across my head.
X2
Big trucks, Motor Freight.
Big Trucks
Runnin’ across my head.

There’s a long train of thought runnin across my mind x2
I’m sure it’ll get here, but I’m not one to say that is always right on time.
There’s a long train of thought runnin across my mind.

Arrival time can be calculated by ascertaining the distance between the city of serious and the town of sublime.

There’s a long train of thought runnin across my mind x2

This is the nature of transportation, when the things that move us don’t let us down.
How fast for how long can we go the distance. Between here and there and from town to town town to town!!

You can travel time in the flash of an instinct.
And dash across logic like a skater on ice.
I have to warm up before I start out.
But anything you can do I can do twice.

This is the nature of transportation, when the things that move us don’t let us down.
How fast for how long can we go the distance. Between here and there and from town to town town to town to town!!
Town to town to town to town to town!!
Track Name: Little Sister
Little Sister

Little Sister in Your dreams I can’t awaken you
Little sister in this sleep that has kidnapped you
In your beauty rest your spirit voices call
Run and play while innocence is free

Little Sister

Little sister this waking world is not for you
It’s on that highway in your mind that begs you to come
As you close your eyes these two worlds collide
But in your dreams your eyes are open wide

Little Sister

Playing in the skies I see movement in your eyes
as you dance away from me.

Sleeping beauty, Cinderella, Snow White have nothing over you
Your fairy tale has no beginning and no end
Mumble a word, try to catch the sun and all it’s rays
Your charming prince has come to light up all your days

Little Sister
Track Name: Sweet As Honey
Sweet as Honey


I hear you callin’, callin my name

It’s as sweet as honey, It’s as sweet as honey

I see you walkin’, Up my lane

Sweet as honey, sweet as honey


There is no sacharine in this love

It comes from the bees in the trees

And the sweet Lord above, it’s as sweet as honey


I like to kiss you all over your face

It’s sweet as honey, sweet as honey

I like to make some Love any time any place

It’s as sweet as honey, sweet as honey


This is no high fructose
No Nutrasweet
No diet pepsi, cause baby when our lips meet
It’s as sweet as honey

I smell the flowers in your hair
It’s as sweet as honey

I feel the flame that burns between two souls
It’s as sweet as honey
Track Name: Suffer
There are many ways to suffer
Not all good by out ward signs
Different ways of goin’ insane
Not always plain to the naked eye

You can sit there stewin stewin in your pew
Not even aware of what else could happen to you
I see you baring your personal cross
Crucify yourself, until your mind is lost

You think you got it bad,
Well someones got it worse
Well ya say you can’t find your calling,
But you sure did find your curse

So Chop up your pity
I said chop up your pity
I said chop up all your self pity
Chop it up

Well you can fall in love
Or you could fall off a cliff
It’s all the same to me
They both make my body stiff

You can’t blame me
You can’t even blame you
That’s just the way things go
When you go snoopin’ for the truth

So Chop up your pity
I said chop up your pity
I said chop up all your self pity
Chop it up

There are many ways to suffer
Not all good by out ward signs
Different ways of goin’ insane
Not always plain to the naked eye
Not always plain to the naked eye
Not always plain to the naked eye
Not always plain to that naked naked eye
Track Name: People Places and Things
People Places and Things

Just give me the words to go on
And I’ll be on my way
Life is crowded with thoughts disturbed by
People, places and things

Spent most of my livin days
Tryin’ to make me a plan
Struggle to get from point A to B
Just as fast as I can

So ya say your prayers and you keep the faith
Ya think of how hard you try
But for now you can go to work
Have all your dreams on the side

I think I understand why
Everyone seems so afraid
They hear a voice inside that tells it like it is
And spend their whole life runnin’ away

My only reason now seems to be
To find me some love and some peace
Let it all hang out and let it in
But let it begin with me
Track Name: Eye to Eye
Eye to Eye

Given some time you can tell
Tell me about yourself
You’ve been thrown out and don’t fit in
Your soul’s on your feet and it’s wearing thin

On a summer’s evening the katydids did sing
You were tellin’ me your problems, I didn’t hear a thing
I had a day dream about your face your nose was ten feet high
Your breath foggin up my glasses

And we couldn’t see eye to eye
No we couldn’t see eye to eye
We couldn’t see eye to eye
No matter how we tried
We couldn’t see eye to eye
No we could see eye to eye
We couldn’t see eye to eye

Now I’m feelin’ out of place
My hands are runnin through my hair
Hangin on for my life
Tellin’ myself not to stare

On a cold and rainy autumn afternoon
I saw you sooner than you knew I did
Our minds were strangers but our eyes were in your bed
Breath foggin up my glasses

But we couldn’t see eye to eye
No we couldn’t see eye to eye
We couldn’t see eye to eye
No matter how we tried
Track Name: The Sun is Blue
The Sun is Blue


The sun is blue
Staring down in solar frustration
Not far above
It’s looking straight into your eyes

With a long sigh of boredom
A slight twinge of pain
The air seems heavy
With no sign of rain

Those clouds are gray
With dust rising up to the sky
Defining rays
Of daylight that magnifies each speck

Now the light may seem dingy
Because all my shades are pulled
There’s a clown in the closet
Who’s getting very old

The silent moon
His mouth gaping wide with surprise
A veil of mist
Can’t wipe the tears from her cheek

And with this painful expression
It’s no coincidence
If we could see the sun smiling
Would it all make any sense?
Track Name: Marjorie
Marjorie


Can I be expected
Expected at your house tonight
Can I be elected
To kiss you one more time

Your eyes……..slip into my pocket
Your hair was mine…….
To save in an envelope
You wash it , you brush it, you want it to shine
And I know that it’s mine

The dresses that you wear
I gave to you
Last year for your birthday
When you were just about twenty three

Oh Marjorie I always loved you
Your eyes slip into my pocket
Your hair was mine
I put it in an envelope, but I lost it

If you were here today
I’d like to play
Some songs I learned in your honor
And you’d sing along
And we’d go off in the sunset in my car together

OOOOOO, OOOOOOO, OOOOOOOO
But I lost it
