Track Name: Free Man
Free Man

Little sister wave goodbye
I ain't comin' back no more
Little sister don't you cry
Save your tears and close the door

I'm gonna be a free man
Lay my bones on rolling water
I'm gonna be a free man
Watch me rove across them borders

Oh the places I will go
In my favorite ramblin' shoes 
Have my Winter Fresh™ in tow
While I shake the hand of someone new

I'm gonna be a free man
Lay my bones on rolling water
I'm gonna be a free man
Watch me rove across them borders
Just wanna be a free man
Though I'm full of rules I can't escape 
Like a thorn in the side
It keeps you occupied
It keeps you occupied

The world is mine to fill my head until my memory’s almost full
Little sister before I’m dead
I’d like to ride that golden bull

I'm gonna be a free man
Lay my bones on rolling water
I'm gonna be a free man
Watch me rove across them borders
Just wanna be a free man
Though I'm full of rules I can't escape
Like a thorn in the side
It keeps you occupied
Ahhhh hah Ahhh
It Keeps You Occupied
It Keeps You Occupied
I just wanna ride etc…

Track Name: Shady's Tinted Kylix
Shady’s Tinted Kylix

Oh when my body floats astray
I weave through the railings past the wax coryfee
Alone – a single chromosome
I drift from low to high
And all things are known when
Shady’s tinted kylix fills my soul

Oh as my ceiling spins in green
I wanna analyze it but I escape the stream that soaks over all my bones
Like tongues that slide on ice
It’s all paraphrased when Shady’s tinted kylix fills my soul

I’m overcome by the base amoeba
I’m going out so I guess I’ll see ya

Who knows exactly where I’ll go
It’s hard to be precise
But my spirit needs to stroll when Shady’s tinted kylix fills my soul
Oh, Shady’s tinted kylix fills my soul

Track Name: The Drive-In's On Fire
The Drive In’s On Fire

We've parked this baby blue Thunderbird for the last five nights
And I've found that cheese pizza with double feature is your biggest desire
From the moment the lion roars you're glued to every single scene
But there's no doubt about it - tonight we must live without it
I'm sad to say the drive-in's on fire

But down Lover's Lane the sky looks wonderful
And the dashboard's sweet refrain plays in living color
I know you love a mystery by low beam light
But they delayed the screening for another evening
The drive-in's on fire

It's been so pleasing getting to know you
But I want to know you even more

“I hold in my hand three matches
from the stages of your fine, fine super fine career”…

But down Lover's Lane the stars look wonderful
And the dashboard's sweet refrain sings in living color

It gets so hot in here that the oxygen almost ignites
With only a murmur of Lana Turner and fuzzy dice on a wire
So in case we get home late we could say we ran out of gasoline
So we can stay in our bubble and get in trouble
Yeah the drive-in's on fire… etc…

Track Name: Release Me
Release Me

If I put my hands up so I can see the backs
And bring down the thumbs together
It’s like a painting with perspective it seems to go on and on forever
A gateway to an undiscovered world view

Release me
My mirror image is my only friend
Hand in hand with isolation
It’s not enough to hear my echo send back a cry

Believe me
I’ve put an end to that rejected child
He had enough of alienation
Back me up and lead me into the wild
I won’t mind

If I could tumble through the looking glass in a graceful animation
Like a time rip into another past an eternal circulation
I’d find the secret to how I both could stay and go
