Track Name: Some Of Us Change
It doesn’t do me any good to sit here wonderin’
Yeah my heart it starts a-hurtin’ and my head it goes numb
I can’t ever change what’s already gone down
But it troubles me how I could ever be so dumb

Well there ain’t no use in cryin’
And there ain’t no use in even tryin’
Some of us seem so strange
When some of us change

I guess I couldn’t have loved you more than I did
But my heart it starts-a wonderin’, I don’t know why
I wasn’t even lookin’ back to where your heart was cryin’
Yeah you never miss your water til your well runs dry


You may think I’m fancy-free, livin’ on the edge
On the surface I guess I’m doin’ alright
The thing’s that go unsaid, my guilt, my shame, my anger
And your sweet love that haunts me in the night


I’m not beggin’ for pity, I’m not beggin’ for sorrow
I’m beggin’ you for one more chance with you
Cause while it might seem so strange to you right now
If you’ll open up your eyes you’ll see I’m changin’ too

When some of us change (x4)
Track Name: Everybody Looks Fantastic
hey mary, where you goin’
you sure look good tonight
i talked to paul just the other day
he said you were doin’ alright
i really should-a kept in touch
but i am not that way
so i guess i’ll just see you around
on some other day

everybody looks fantastic
bought it with a piece of plastic

hey joe, i heard you wife just ran away
she just had to go
i guess you’ll be headin’ out soon
the weather’s nice down in mexico
now i just turn my heels and run
and not only that and what’s more
i’ll give you a call when you get done
cleanin’ your .44

everybody looks fantastic
bought it with a piece of plastic

nobody seems to be afraid
to live beyond their means
but the courage dries up when it’s time
to act upon their dreams
the love of money is the root of all evil
but not the money itself
a love of life and a life of love
is your greatest wealth
Track Name: Bowl Of Soul
Yeah the man is comin’, you better start runnin’
You’ll never understand
He’ll say that he’s your very best friend
But the man is still the man
The bastards are accusing but don’t start a-weepin’
You’re higher than a tree
You got through the past at a hell of a cost
But the future’s still for free
You got freedom of this and freedom of that
And you’ll never see the chains
The maniacal grip of uncle sam’s fist
Just doesn’t seem that strange
It’s a deal of the cards and a roll of the dice
And the dice you are disposed to
The proceeds go to the tax of your choice
Yeah the tax man truly loves you

You’re never gonna lose control
When you smoke a bowl of soul

The hangman’s noose is gonna cook your goose
The rules they rarely bend
And only then it’s for the man
You’re pissin’ in the wind
You look around at the question you found
And it makes you wonder why
The answer they say is as far away
As the stars up in the sky
Now god gave birth out of the good brown earth
To a weed to calm your mind
Smoke a little bit and man, no shit
You never know what you’ll find
You got your hands in the air like you just don’t care
You’re reachin’ for the sky
When you’re on the fence it starts to make sense
Only when you’re high

You’re never gonna lose control
When you smoke a bowl of soul
(chorus 2x ad lib)
Track Name: God Bless Uncle Creepy

Uncle creepy’s got a great big stack of girlie magazines
In his shed, he’s got a hot rod car, a suicide machine
He won’t talk to you or anyone else when he’s home alone
Uncle creepy’s gone

God bless uncle creepy (creepy creepy) (3x)
God bless . . .

Uncle creepy’s got some scary movies in his VCR
A 3D sticer of a creepy skull on his old SG guitar
His spends his day makin’ copies at the post office in town
Uncle creepy’s gone

Man, have you seen that uncle creepy?
Some kinda weird
Track Name: Dream
DREAM (Mentzer)

Having heard that snapping sound
Little man, he turns around
To find his life has broken down

The pieces scattered every way
How and why he could not say
Children pick them up to play

Man he knows the still of night
Hides the cracks until the light
Shows the pieces aren’t right

Hollow faces deep within
Varied memories haunting him
His patience wearing very thin
