Track Name: Maker (Acoustic)
I live in my own home
I live in my paper
The absence becomes me
a reticent spectre

Oh, why don't you do as you're told?
Oh, happiness isn't your goal
Oh, why don't you do as your told?
Oh, happiness isn't your goal
I'm not just a boy I'm a man
I'm not just a man I'm a God
I'm not just a God I'm a maker

No country for crazy
but thank you for asking
my markings and makings
belong in the trash bin

Oh, why don't you do as your told?
Oh, happiness isn't your goal
I'm not just a boy I'm a man
I'm not just a man I'm a God
I'm not just a God I'm a maker

Mind your maker

Have you ever seen anything quite like this?
Have you ever done anything quite like this?
Have you ever known anything quite like this?
Have you ever seen anything quite like this?

Oh, why don't you do as you're told?
Oh, happiness isn't your goal
Oh, why don't you do as your told?
Oh, happiness isn't your goal
I'm not just a boy I'm a man
I'm not just a man I'm a God
I'm not just a God I'm a maker

Mind your maker
Have you ever seen anything quite like this?
Have you ever done anything quite like this?
Track Name: Pisces
I got most of what I wanted
A little full moon action
I've seen the tides go crashing
Go and put your fingers on it
You're in the right direction
A little love connection
My song and your sonnet
More than words collide
Go on and let it ride

Yeah, you made a way for me
Feeling through
Yeah, you made way for me
Ooh, I can do that too
Yeah, you made a wave for me
Feeling through
Yeah, you made wave for me
Ooh, I can do that too
Ooh, i can do that too

Settle down for the winter
A little warmth and wonder
and when you pull me under
I swim long sinner
They say the tide is high now
Now way in staying dry now
Baby, a little full moon action
and when the tides go crashing

Yeah, you made a way for me
Feeling through
Yeah, you made way for me
Ooh, I can do that too
Yeah, you made a wave for me
Feeling through
Yeah, you made wave for me
Ooh, I can do that too
Ooh, i can do that too

I'll remember this part of you
I'll remember this part of you
I'll remember this part of you
I'll remember this part of you
I'll remember this part of you
I'll remember this part of you
I'll remember this part of you
I'll remember this part of you

Yeah, you made a way for me
Feeling through
Yeah, you made way for me
Ooh, I can do that too
Yeah, you made a wave for me
Feeling through
Yeah, you made wave for me
Ooh, I can do that too
Ooh, i can do that too
Ooh, I can do that too
Ooh, i can do that too
Track Name: Sonja Smokes Me Out
Sonja smokes me out I'm about to lose my head
Won't your stop you're crying?
You're dying
I am dead

Sonja smokes me out
Sonja smokes me out
Sonja smokes me out
Sonja smokes me out

Casey can't erase me and frankly I can't rest
got to stop the bleeding proceeding from my chest
Hope you know it's up to you to come through and clean this mess

Sonja smokes me out
Sonja smokes me out
Sonja smokes me out
Sonja smokes me out

Sonja smokes me out I'm about to lose my head
Won't your stop you're crying?
You're dying
I am dead

Sonja smokes me out
Sonja smokes me out
Sonja smokes me out
Sonja smokes me out
Track Name: How Come
Killing time in my room
it's a quarter after noon
busy heart, busy mind
I don't know where I find the time
to be calm for a breath
I could work myself to death

How come, April?
How come, April?
How come, April?
How come, April?

All my rain is sun
Kingdom Came
How Come?
All my rain is sun
Kingdom Came
How Come?

Every night in my sleep
do I travel dark and deep
Over land, over sea
this is where I want to be
with your hand in my hand
I know exactly where I stand

How come, April?
How come, April?
How come, April?
How come, April?

All my rain is sun
Kingdom Came
How Come?
All my rain is sun
Kingdom Came
How Come?

How come, April?
How come, April?

All my rain is sun
Kingdom Came
How Come?
All my rain is sun
Kingdom Came
How Come?
Track Name: Baby No More (Acoustic)
Scary what I done and might do
Mary, you know well I done you wrong
Heartbreak from the King Heartbreaker
Weary, but somehow I'm still alive

So tell me
Am I not supposed to hurt you?
Am I not supposed to make you cry?
Damn, I just don't know good loving the right way
I can't be your baby no more
I can't be your baby no more

I can't I can't be your baby no more
cause I done gone crazy
Shake me till ain't nothin left to shake
Take me all the way down

and tell me
Am I not supposed to hurt you?
Am I not supposed to make you cry?
Damn, I just don't know good loving the right way
I can't be your baby no more
I can't be your baby

Am I dead? Must be dead
Am I sick in my head?
Am I wrong? Must be wrong
Best get gone

and tell me
Am I not supposed to hurt you?
Am I not supposed to make you cry?
Damn, I just don't know good loving the right way
I can't be your baby no more
I can't be your baby no more
