Track Name: YOU
Oh, the yups on the boulevard try to impress
Looking to capture in exquisite dress
Attempts to turn on from heads to toenails
Idle on taste but with plenty faux tales

They're not like you
They're not like you
You, you, you
Just you, just you
Track Name: Naturally (YOU)
I laugh in whirls
They caught up in faux things
Like their
Spray cans and plastic rings
But you, make it naturally
You do it naturally

They go out
Fakin' at the shows
With their
Fast cars and silly combs
But you, make it naturally
You do it naturally

You, so naturally
You, that's where your beauty is
You, it's what you're doin'
You, reflect your beauty in you

There's no need to change a thing
Just keep bright colors that you bring
Bright colors that bring you
Bright colors that bring you

Yuppies in clubs
How they try impress
With their
Spending and trendy dress
But you, make it naturally
You do it naturally

They show off
From their heads to toenails
Idle on taste
With their plenty faux tales
But you, make it naturally
You do it naturally

You, so naturally
You, that's where your beauty is
You, it's what you're doin'
You, reflect your beauty in you
Track Name: I Wrecked a Bus
Thinking about too many things at once
Not enough time for a new song
Dogs lay on the floor, one crawled on the couch
My mind's still stuck on that one night we hung out

As my arms flailed on the dance floor
Spilled coffee on your brand new coat
I got a little weird, and I ran for the door
Left a mess on the few words that I wrote

And thank God for the log they put on the fire for me
I'll slowly make it out, I'll make it eventually
And thank God for the log they put on the fire for me
I'll make it, maybe, we'll see

I never washed the dishes when you fed me
We find a way to take it
I left in such a jam when you welcomed me
We find a way to make it

I hope you feel better
I know I wrecked a bus of your plans
I hope you'll forgive
It's not really who I am
Track Name: What Kinds of Doggies Do You Like?
What kinds of doggies do you like?
I'll tell you what kinds of doggies I like
I like those kinds of doggies that are nice
What kinds of doggies do you like?

Do you like brown dogs?
Do you like white dogs?
Do you like fast dogs?
Or dogs that just sleep?
Track Name: Williston, ND
It seems so right to them, to them, to them
And what makes it strange out there, out there, out there
What are they building out there?
When there's nothing left to grow

Searching for the reason, for building lack of season

And I know that it's hard work
I don't know why, I don't know why
They know they really work so hard
They don't know why, they don't know why
Everyday they work so hard
We don't know why, we don't why
Track Name: Travelin' Traveler
Gonna cue up my next cassette tape
Gotta set out for another landscape
I don't know where, it's not here
I don't know where, it's not here

I've been at this for a great while
You could say days, weeks, years, yards, miles
I don't know where, it's not here
I don't know where, it's not here

I got coffee and a map in my car
I don't know where, I don't know where
I got a cornet and a beat up guitar
I don't know why, I don't know why

Somewhere there is a light
I don't know where, I don't know where
I wanna know what is that night
I don't know what, I don't know what

Some days I'm not in love with anyone
Some days I'm in love with everyone
My shoes are worn in all the way at the soles
My shirt's so ripped that the sleeves won't roll
Track Name: Don't Let South Dakota Spiders Eat You
I miss you even more now than I missed you last fall
You looked up at me, admiring me back when you thought I was tall

You wrote me, a late August night to tell me you cared
You cried, "Please don't let South Dakota spiders eat you up there!"

That's one night I knew that you cared

Sharing our dreams, summer and fall, Chicago to New York so far
Tucking those dreams, into my car, with you, my trumpet, and guitar

Flowers and trees
All of me
That don't quite grow in your jar
My heart is telling your mind, you don't need one
Track Name: Like a Child
I get so lonely here sometimes
Friends are great, but I'm so strange inside, inside
I love how much they love me for myself
But how can I still be to them of help?

Dad, why they tear those mountains down?
Dad said they're building walls to keep the bad guys out

Why do we build those walls?
Why do we build those walls?
We keep on building walls
We're building walls

And it's painful when I try to write
Digging stories buried deep inside, inside
I buried, built them up so much
Buried, and constantly covered up

Like a child, you know we're all the same
Like a child, you know we're all the same
Track Name: In My Tent
Every night, I'm tempted by something from the dark side
Like we all, we all want another bite of the pie

It seems so easy to make a stomach queasy
It seems so easy to make a stomach queasy
Took a break from showering
Made me feel prettier
I stopped needing
And started believing

Now I'm walking down a better road
Feeling like I'm walking on gold

Every night we're seeing someone injured by the dark side
We all know sometimes it's hard to stand in, be the good guy

Sometimes, sometimes we gotta fight the good fight
Sometimes, sometimes we gotta make it so right

Stand up for your fellow brother, will ya?
Stand up for your fellow sister, will ya?
Stand up for your little man, will ya?
Stand up for your fellow girl

Now we're walking down a better road
Feeling like we're walking on gold
Track Name: Beal Leave
Sitting right there
Words were never there
Words were never there

If the words aren't there
Am I anywhere?
Am I anywhere?

Say you believe in me
Say you believe in me
(How can be free?)

Words were never there
Words were never there
Words were never there

If the words aren't there
Am I anywhere?
Am I anywhere?

That's when you believed in be
You believed in me
(How can one see?)

Words were never there
Words were never there
Track Name: Mike, the Man You Miss
Mike, the man you miss
Was your dad, he was your dad
He worked so hard for us
In our lands, all our lands
I haven't met you yet
My dear Mike, my dear Mike
I met your dad just once
And I liked, we all liked

Oh, my poor Mike. . .

And through this may you find
Some ways to mend, some ways to mend
I feel you still need
A few good friends, a few good friends
Track Name: Sea Watt
Our arms intertwined
We want this to last
Can dreaming be real?

No words in our silence
We speak it so well
It's the language we feel
