Track Name: Head in the Sand
Got no pockets, head in the sand
Brain migration to a magical land
I got no pockets
I got no pockets
Dropped your wallet, there in the sand
Dropped your wallet right here in my hand
I got your wallet
I got your wallet

Dropped your pocket, head in the sand
Brain migration to a mystical land
Dropped your pocket
Dropped your pocket
Dropped your wallet, there in the sand
Dropped your wallet right here in my hand
I got your wallet
I got your wallet

Got no pockets, head in the sand
Brain migration to a mystical land
I got no pockets
I got no pockets
Dropped your wallet, there in the sand
Dropped your wallet right here in my hand
I got your wallet
I got your wallet
Track Name: 15/16
Playing to an empty room
Wouldn’t want another view
This is such a lovely groove

I don't have another beat
All the rhythm’s in my feet
Playing something kinda neat

Do you have a warning? I don’t need to count it off
This is just a feeling, I don’t think I’m overdrawn

I never wanted to believe
I never wanted to be free

Playing in a crowded house
Mexican pocket mouse
Trying not to cause a rouse

I think I need a different bed
Or maybe just a different head

Do you have a warrant, don’t know what you’re leaning on
I don’t have a secret, there is no phenomenon

I never wanted to believe
I never wanted to be free

Feet across the pavement, don’t know if the gun went off
Sleepin’ in the basement, everybody’s taking off

I never wanted to believe
I never wanted to be free
Track Name: Bongo
On my way through Mexico
I just need a place to go, Bongo
And on my way through Mexico
I just need to find a boat, oh no

But you can’t get to sleep with knocking at your door
And you won't care at all if you can't hear it anymore

On my way through Tampa Bay
Looking for a place to stay, hey hey
Okay
And on my way through Santa Fe
Change my name and find a hideaway
Okay

But you can’t get to sleep with sirens in your head
And you won't care at all if you are sleeping in your bed

On my way through the Caribbean
I'm just lookin' for a little sun, I'm done
Laying low in the Caribbean
Nobody knows the things that I have done, I won

But there’s a rat in town and you can’t find a name
And you won't care at all cuz they're already on their way
Track Name: Sudafed
I’ll hide in the streets
Cuz they’re out to get me
I run and I sneak
Through the endless city

And there’s a part of my feet
That would just surrender
But I won’t take defeat

I just wanna get home
I just wanna get by

I just wanna get free
I just wanna get high

They found my ‘stache
And shaved it for me
I wanted to laugh
Cuz they still can’t find me

I’m at the overpass
But I changed my clothes
And they won’t take me down
But they’ll break my bones

I just wanna get home
I just wanna get by
I just wanna get free
I just wanna get high
High on sudafed

They’re on my tail
And getting closer
I can smell the pigs
Around the corner

I’ll keep my gun
And get on a plane
This could be the one
To take down my brain

I just wanna get home
I just wanna get by
I just wanna get free
I just wanna get high
High on sudafed

I just wanna get high
Track Name: Pogo
Taking off in Bongo
Heading back to the States
Think I'm gonna pogo
Try to make a great escape

On my way to Vegas
Looking for a place to hide
They're coming up behind me
I don't have an alibi
Hiding in the game room
Casino knows I'm on the run
Hiding in the back room

Breaking down the front door
Exiting through the back
Sheriff's waiting out there
Guess I'm going to the sack
On my way to Texas
They're not gonna post my bail
I'm not gonna make this
I think I'm gonna rot in jail

Waiting in a courtroom
They're not gonna have me tried
This is such a pity
I think they're gonna hang me dry
Track Name: Womble
Say what you wanna say

This is our dream, what do you think?
I'm living in Hell cuz you're making me think
