Track Name: Love
When you start yer day,
It's a great big world outside
Be the one to say,
I don't have to feel this way
I know it's okay

Love
It's all that I really
It's all that I really want
It's all that I really need

Middle of the night,
It's a tiny world inside
Futuristic sight;
In a bedroom with no light
Tell me it's okay

Love
It's all that I really
It's all that I really want
It's all that I really need
Track Name: Angel Wings Green
Angel wings are green, yeah
Angel wings are green, shaggy
Angel wings are green, yeah, yeah
Angel wings are green

Dyin' just to tell you 'bout my secret
Turnin' away from the screen
You loved kissin' when you were a piglet
There's a new face on the scene

Angel wings are green, yeah
Angel wings are green, shaggy
Angel wings are green, yeah, yeah
Angel wings are green

Sacrificial sequence for adventure
Live in a swamp till I die
Motorcycle creatures wearin' dentures, yeah
Because their baby-teeth filled with flies
Because their baby-teeth filled with flies

Angel wings are green, yeah
Angel wings are green, shaggy
Angel wings are green, yeah, yeah
Angel wings are green

I can feel a pathway in my brain form
Revisit those from the past
Spelunking my way through a big lightning storm
I almost forgot life could be a blast
I almost forgot life could be a blast
I almost forgot life could be a blast
I almost forgot life could be a blast, and

Angel wings are green, yeah
Angel wings are green, shaggy
Angel wings are green, yeah, yeah
Angel wings are green
Track Name: Glowworms
When I look attch you, I go out my mind
When I look at the sun, I go blind

Fishin' every weekend at night
When all of the ducks have lost all their tails
Nobody expected from me a ship that could sail

When I look attch you, I go out my mind
When I look at the sun, I go blind

Loadin' up a suitcase with clothes
There's something inside yer heart you can't hide
Nobody with goggles will know the worms that can glow

When I look attch you, I go out my mind
When I look at the sun, I go blind

Fillin' up some juice in the tank
A pineapple stem in purgatory
Everyone's a neighbor to me- there's lots I don't know

Cutting off my fingers and toes;
I'm choosing which limb will be my new nose
The crust is not what I'm lookin' forward to eating now

When I look attch you, I go out my mind
When I look at the sun, I go blind
Track Name: Starlit Face In The Summertime
Starlit face in the summertime,
I want you here,
Lyin' on the grass in the night
Together, we're feelin' fine
It's on my mind;
Dyin' is forever; let's try

Up all night, but I'm not alone
I've got bodies here
They're snorin' and they're droolin' at me
Their eyes are remaining closed,
And they'll stay that way
For how long, nobody knows

Our star; don't shine
Stay here, gimme yer time

I'm reclusive inside my home
My Dad's guitars: hummin' out the chords to a song-
I'm writing for you tonight-
If comes the light, I'll make a demo for you to hear

Slay the carcass, use all the meat
The holy tongue; hooves: we'll make a sweater
The cow is gone but we won't forget just what she meant
Her sacred soul that we had to leave

Starlit face in the summertime,
I want you here,
Lyin' on the grass in the night
Together, we're feelin' fine
It's on my mind;
Dyin' is forever; let's try
Dyin' is forever

Our star; don't shine
Stay here, gimme yer time
Willow; peach pit
The death cloud is needin' to spit

I'm reclusive inside my home
My Dad's guitars: hummin' out the chords to a song
Track Name: OK Happy/OK Sad
Where did you go with the sun?
Burnin' all the gasoline
Think about another day
Powder on a butterfly

Know that I love you
Know that I need you
Know that I love you
It's true

It can be so hard to be
It can be so hard to feel
It's okay to be happy
It is okay to be sad

Know that I love you
Know that I need you
Know that I love you
It's true
I know that I love you
Know that I need you
I know that I love you
Is it true?
Yeah, it's true
Track Name: Underneath The Busybody Tree
You will never cry,
or ever have to wear a sweater
Underneath the busybody tree
There's no need to worry 'bout the pumpkin people sneezin',
Underneath the busybody tree,
Underneath the busybody tree

You can have a pony if you glue some macaroni,
Underneath the busybody tree
All the love is fleeting, but so is the stormy weather
Underneath the busybody tree,
Underneath the busybody tree

Silly little swan, put yer sneakers on
Call the coroner to check out yer lawn
He claims that the sun dried up all the rain
Itsy-Bitsy never came

Well, we baked you a cake, and now we're patiently all waiting
Underneath the busybody tree
Every yellow ribbon, and balloons of every colour are
Underneath the busybody tree,
Underneath the busybody tree
Track Name: I Was Always Looking For You
Load me up,
Straight to the vein,
Riddle my brain,
Pump in my blood:
All of your love

Cannibal,
Came up to me.
Said I looked good,
Good enough to eat,
Gnawed off my feet:
I was always looking for you

You don't know me,
No, not even close
I'm like a ghost,
Up in the sky
I don't know why...
I was always looking for you

Pretty soon we will be just dust;
Driftin' away with a gust,
Waving to people inside aeroplanes;
Flyin' 'cross the sky

Lie awake,
Yer thinking of me
But, I don't believe,
So, I'm not afraid;
I can't be saved
I was always looking for you

Pretty soon we will be just dust;
Driftin' away with a gust,
Helping people in hot air balloons fly across the sky

Honestly, are we supposed to be all in a row?
Does anyone know?
Get on with the show!
I was always looking for you,
I was always hoping you knew
Track Name: Starlit Face In The Summertime (Bonus Track)
Starlit face in the summertime,
I want you here,
Lyin' on the grass in the night
Together, we're feelin' fine
It's on my mind;
Dyin' is forever; let's try

Up all night, but I'm not alone
I've got bodies here
They're snorin' and they're droolin' at me
Their eyes are remaining closed,
And they'll stay that way
For how long, nobody knows

Our star; don't shine
Stay here, gimme yer time

I'm reclusive inside my home
My Dad's guitars: hummin' out the chords to a song-
I'm writing for you tonight-
If comes the light, I'll make a demo for you to hear

Slay the carcass, use all the meat
The holy tongue; hooves: we'll make a sweater
The cow is gone but we won't forget just what she meant
Her sacred soul that we had to leave

Starlit face in the summertime,
I want you here,
Lyin' on the grass in the night
Together, we're feelin' fine
It's on my mind;
Dyin' is forever; let's try
Dyin' is forever

Our star; don't shine
Stay here, gimme yer time
Willow; peach pit
The death cloud is needin' to spit

I'm reclusive inside my home
My Dad's guitars: hummin' out the chords to a song
