Track Name: Word Trippin'
There's too many words inside this book I read
about the way of the world
and a sexy young girl who had a crush on me

So I counted the words and put them in a box
on the top shelf of a cupboard
where I hope they will stay until the owner comes along

I'm one of a kind
I'm a breed apart
I'm a lone ranger in my horse and cart

I'm lost inside the numbers
of this picture on a wall
by a polish dancing fool
who was painting on the floor
when he spilt some
Track Name: Water
water in the air
enough for me to breathe
water in my veins
water on the breeze

water is as water does
water is for wading in
water come and wash me down
wash away my sins

water on my brain
water feels so nice
i want to catch some water
turn it into ice

water on my breath
water in my nose
water makes me sneeze
who knows where it goes

drinking from this muddy river
water's gonna trash my liver
water from the sky
will melt you when you die

water flows down to the sea
down the mountain, up the tree
water makes a pretty fountain
water's trying to follow me
