Track Name: Run, Mouse, Run
Watch where you walk with that cake
He's feeding you like a mouse to snake
Watch where you walk with that cake
He's feeding you like a mouse to snake.

Oh! The tales that he gives with his sheepish eyes
Must he entrance you with lies?
You scoff and belittle my seasoned advice
But i think you'll learn in due time.

He tries reeling you in with those slick rims and wheels
I pray you never give him that key
Someday you will find in your heart what is real
Someday you'll wisen up when you flee.

When you flee
When you flee.
Track Name: The Heart of Wednesday Night
Wednesday night oh so sweet
My favorite night of all week
Wednesday night so weak
But somehow so sweet.

You tell me that you'd rather find another delight
Friday night Saturday night
You tell me that you'd rather wait for Friday night
Saturday night, but it's just your pride.

You tell me that you're gonna go and follow your pride
Take it for a ride, 'til you've been denied
You tell me that you're gonna go and follow your pride
Take it for a ride, 'til you've been denied.
Track Name: With This Pen
Boys spoke just of in this farm town
Of football and fast cars
No melodies came from their mouths
No chords from their guitars.

With this pen, verse and song
Can you sing with it, birds?
Times I've dragged for so long
Lost desert deprivation dryness of the words.

My eyes still burning in this drought
Of dust bowl clouds of wrecks
Can paint and pad in this profound
My slumber i confess.

We sing. . .
Track Name: When the Well Dries Out
You see me standing here with six hundred friends
Seven hundred friends
What a team.

You say I'm loved by many here but oh to be just loved by one
just loved by one
should i dare dream?

Dad said they built that well out there some 28 years ago
Six hundred yards south of the fence with hot wire
Now the years are catching up with the bottom of its flow
Not much water left in there to put out the fire.

Someday might i find
Someday might i find
Purity of kind
Purity of kind.

Someday might i find
Someday might i find
Clarity so fine
Clarity so fine.
Track Name: With Your Armies in Your Mind
With your armies in your mind
Do they make you feel so fine?
Fake plastic for your gas
But you do it for the cash
Nah you do it for the cash!

What will you tell your son
On the day turns twenty one?
Fake plastic for those trees
You lost your time, you lost your ease
You lost your mind, you lost the breeze.
Track Name: Could You Find It?
In a desert without the book
Could you still find your guiding light?
Would you still know how to cook?
Could you still face your mighty frights?

Where is the light?
Where is the light?
Where is the light?
Sometimes it's warm.

Where is the light?
Where is the light?
Where is the light?
Sometimes there's some.

I've got friends, do you have friends?
I've got friends, do you?
I've got friends, do you have friends?

I hope you care about my friends
I hope to know it's true.
Track Name: Wit' Dem Shoes He Only Has One Sock
Oh my poor friends, i know the trouble that you bring
And oh to us ten songs our tongues will sing
You walk on strings, you long for senseless things
Why to foolish thoughts you daily cling?

You wrap it with a bow
Where did those drunkards go?
It's broken, can you sew?
Where did those drunkards go?

See out in dark streets he sleeps inside a tiny box
With dem shoes he only has one sock
And in my heart i know he's happier than i
Why, my friend, do you wish to deny?
Track Name: Their Coke and Their Cake
Dear family dear friends, how much i've missed
It's been five months, darn close to six
And the east to the west
Knows me as their guest.

I miss you so much that it hurts me
But I've learned many things on this journey
I'd like to share them with you
I'd like to share them with you
With you
With you.

See their coke and their cake has got them in chains
I hope they break it one day
Their coke and their cake has got them in chains
I hope they break it one day
One day.

Miss you mom and dad, I've got so much to tell
I'm still out here 'cause these kids need my help
Miss you mom and dad, I've got so much to tell
I'm still out here 'cause these kids need my help
My help
My help.

We sang some songs that night
And the ones who came knew it so right.
Track Name: Oh! How We Love Little Song
Bring me a good book to read
Let the words fulfill my needs
Encourage the free
Freedom of thought
Thankful for the little things we've got.

Bring me a microphone to sing
These songs are my everything
I'll sing along
You'll sing a along
Oh! How we love little song.

Bring me a nice pen to write
Powerful thoughts that ignite
I'm running for
Something that's more
Songs that we sing day and night.

I'll sing along
You'll sing along
Oh! How we love little song.
