Track Name: Almost Home
Here we go
Far ahead and far away
Ha ha ha
We played our hands
Got led astray
It's time to go
Nuthin to do
Got nuthin to say
Ha ha ha
Another land
Another day

Just getting by and by
Floating around

Almost home
Not quite home

Just floating
Round and round
This ain't our home
Not that we know

How will we do
What we do?
What will we do?
How will we do?

Almost home
Not quite
Track Name: Rugs
Do you know what I did?
Don't ask so many questions if you know

I don't know what you did
But I know it ain't something I should know

Every single night
I drink until I drool
They're asking all these questions
And I can't play it cool

I don't know what I did
I don't think I remember anymore
What is right?
What is wrong?
Just help me drag these rugs onto the shore

Every single night
She treats me like a fool
They're asking all these questions
And I can't play it cool

All I do is drive
I drive and drive and drive
Let's go for a drive

No one knows what we did
I don't think you'll remember anymore
Track Name: The Glass House
And when you laugh
I'll know
And when you gaffe
I'll know

And now you're there
In the glow
Your autumn hair
My snow
Did we really need to be this fun?
A psycho exercise for everyone

All our money's gone
It was so much fun
When the money's gone
You will be the one

I know this is temporary
Every day is temporary
Track Name: Manitoba
Who's gonna wear the crown
Now that the pageant's over
Who's gonna wear that gown
Your mistress in Manitoba

You like to butter your bread
You like the things that I said
On pretty paper it said
I was a born again
It was a one-time thing
You didn't know I could sing
And to the press I will sing
Oh how hot water stings

Who's gonna wear the crown
Now that the pageant's over
Who's gonna wear that gown
Your heiress in Nova Scotia
Who's gonna be around
That parrot on your shoulder, baby
Who's gonna kiss you now
When your ass is getting older

You like to bubble your bath
You tried to soothe my wrath
You'll never soothe my wrath
Not with a bubble bath
It was a one-time thing
You didn't know I could sing
And to the press I will sing
Oh how hot water stings

Who's gonna wear the crown?

Barbie army
Marching in our evening wear
Truth disrobes you
Probes you
In the public square

Who's gonna wear the crown?
Who's gonna kiss you now?
Track Name: Dreams
I had dreams of leaving
Speeding through the stars
Dreams of going nowhere
Just somewhere maybe far
I had dreams of flying
Soaring in a song
Dreams of going somewhere
Somewhere I belong

But I had dreams
Dreams that I could see
And only dreamt by me
And these dreams
These dreams
Are outliving me
Inevitably
Gawd, will I ever see these dreams?

Every day they forecast
Predetermined scars
And I get by on nothing
Somewhere south of Mars
Seems I won't be leaving
I keep counting stars
And dream of going somewhere
Somewhere maybe far

Cuz I had dreams
Dreams that I could see
And only dreamt by me
And these dreams
These dreams
Are outliving me
Inevitably
Gawd, will I ever see these dreams?
Track Name: Coco Taxi
There's a long line for bread and a line to use the telephone
But there's no line for the waves in Havana on the Malecón
So I waxed up my board and I tried to flag a máquina
I caught a three-wheeled wonder bike shaped just like a coconut

Coco Taxi (conduciendo)
Coco Taxi (yo entiendo)
Coco Taxi (vamos a la playa)
Kookoo taxi

We zipped through Havana eating peanuts out of little cones
The chicks were wearing tights while the men were playing dominoes
Mister driver what's the hold up dontcha know I gotta shoot the curl
But he just lit his cigar and he whistled at a little girl

Coco Taxi (estamos en Vedado)
Coco Taxi (estoy enamorado)
Coco Taxi (vamos a la playa)
Kookoo Taxi

At the beach he wanted ten CUC but all I had was four now
And so he grabbed my board and he hit the ocean's roar now

Coco Taxi (vamos a la playa)
Coco Taxi (con mi media naranja)
Coco Taxi (pies goofy)
Kookoo Taxi

Diez CUC!
Ten CUC?
You're the kook!
Track Name: 2B
Cracks in the ceiling
Mold on the walls
Every time you scrape it
You crawl

The tiles in the kitchen
24 years old
And with every year
You fold

You try to make it alone
In a cozy home that you've outgrown

No matter how you scrape it
Your memories are old
All your midnight stories have been told

And you can't escape it
There's no place to go
Every room is buried head to toe

You tried to make it alone
Haunted by the oats that you have sewn

But it's no longer your home
You gotta try and make it
Let it go
Take a look around you
It's buried under the mold
You're no longer alone
Track Name: Beehive
I wanna rattle your beehive
Cuz I can't behave
I wanna give you the sunshine
Crawl into your cave

I wanna take you to Vigo
Get lost in the waves
¿Quires bailar conmigo?
Will your beehive misbehave?

I want your sting
I need your sting
Your screams
Are in my dreams

A swarm of deadly confusion
Honed in on desire
A prince of dreamy delusion
A queen of evil and fire
¿Quieres juga el jai alai?
I really wanna play
I went and rattled a beehive
Will your beehive misbehave?

I want your sting
I need your sting
Your screams are in my dreams
My dreams will make you scream

I'll sneak into your heart
Light a midnight fire
While the world's asleep
Track Name: Mustache Autograph
Mustache
Autograph
Have a laugh
You need to laugh
You need a little laugh
How bout a bubble bath?
Thinking on your baby bones
Let's get on the phone
Let's just get off the phone
