Lyrics

Hillbilly Mystic 1. The first time I heard him on the radio, he took my mind to the circus and the rodeo. By the time I figured out what had happened to me, it was too late to turn back honey, fortunately. Chorus... He's a hillbilly mystic, a wild hillbilly mystic. He left his little log cabin back in Dullsville, He'll show you how to reach Nirvana without liquor or pill He's a hillbilly mystic, an existential optimistic. 2. The hillbilly mystic don't travel alone, his wife's a gypsy palm reader plays the saxophone, got a band of disciples called the celestial stars, they only play the big shows no coffee houses or bars. For the hillbilly mystic, he digs the philosophistic! 3. Well the hillbilly mystic, he walks a thin line, he don't sit on the fence, you know he speaks his mind. No particular religion on denomination, 'cause his mind's a satellite he's got his own translation. Chorus...... 4. The hillbilly mystic he will give you hope, he's one of the few requested by the Pope. There's a chill in his voice and a fire in his soul, and if you don't watch him close, he'll spike your punch bowl. (Chorus)

Lyrics

Hot Tamale 1. You are my hot tamale, sweet chili pepper golly You're sweeter than my teenage radio My antenna's hummin', how I love to see you comin' Let's go have a kiss on the patio! 2. Mi curiosidad to peak it, how you love to keep your secret I wonder if I got one you don't know? I might be your gaucho, we could dance the mambo Like Greta Garbo you light up my flambeau Chorus...You are my siesta, you are my fiesta mucho, mucho grande carnival You are the living end I want you in my hacienda You're my crazy chick beatifical! 3. When I close my eyes Chiquita, loco loba senorita You star in my crazy flying dreams You say when you're not too busy you'll spin my top make me dizzy I must go ask the gypsy what this means 4. You are my burrito, spicy y bonito And man you light me up like a pinball Down at la cantina if I stumble and I lean ah You are there to catch me when I fall Chorus...You are my siesta, you are my fiesta much, mucho grande carnival Your are the living end I want you in my hacienda You're my crazy chick beatifical! 5. You are my hot tamale, sweet chili pepper golly You're sweet than my teenage radio My antenna's hummin', how I love to see you comin' Let's go have a kiss on the patio! Let's go have a kiss on the patio!

Lyrics

Broken Pride 1. Love went down in flames like Pearl Harbor And the world's been shaved by a drunken barber Chaos reigns on the freeway lanes can't find the interchange 2. They say when you're down, you ain't out Can't sit around the house and pout But ain't it hard to ride when the Horses name is Broken Pride? Chorus... There's a drugstore by the highway in the desert Selling dime-store junk to people passin' by How I wish to God I'd never stopped there But the shine on that cheap tin always caught my eye! 3. Well the sun is out, he got a pardon Parole board says he's been a hard one But he shines like me, mostly on a world Where he'd like to be 4. They say don't burn your bridges, don't break ties Still you can't go back no one denies So I won't cease fire, I'm crashin' through barbed wire With my wheels on fire With my wheels on fire With my wheels on fire With my wheels on fire

Lyrics

Vaguely Familiar 1. Welcome to the town, of the vaguely familiar Every face is someone you know, but you don't know where from Is that the guy from your high school prom, or that dull sit-com? Or that front page picture in the paper of that guy who threw the fire bomb 'Cause they say he's from the town, of the vaguely familiar 2. When you see them on the street, they have eyes of glass They smile and they nod, and turn away as they pass Your mouth's still open 'cause you tried to speak, But the connection's weak Was she that girl waiting tables last night? You know she was not unique And most definitely resides, with the vaguely familiar 3. Was she someone you knew well, or just a casual acquaintance A love at first sight with the girl making dental appointments? You run your mind through its rolodex, but you're so perplexed, Maybe that cousin of your ex, The one who's so uni-sex And you know there's some of them you wish Weren't so vaguely familiar 4. Here comes Mr. Big Fish, swimming in his small pond He's lost the silk suit, cut his hair and bleached it blond He'll never remember your name, so why play that game Still you remind him once again And he gives you that kind look of pain And says "Oh yeah that's right, I thought you looked vaguely familiar." 5. You can hold someone for years, in the void that is here And leave them one day, without shedding a tear How could your whole love unwind, were you temporarily blind? 'Cause much to your surprise one day well you awoke to find You were lying next to someone, only vaguely familiar Lying next to someone, only vaguely familiar Lying next to someone, only vaguely familiar

Lyrics

I Don't Think I Wanna Think 1. Come gather 'round me people and I'll tell you of a tale And if you wag it right the moral will not fail Go ahead get down and dirty; hold your little head up high Keep your feet on the ground if you're ever gonna fly 2. I was swirling in the vortex of the café lobby Near a woman who appeared to be potentially snobby She suddenly sadly said "My husband's left me in a lurch. Now I feel misplaced, like a dog in a church". Chorus... The more I think about it I don't think I wanna think The things I've seen today would make a blind man blink If you watch your feet too close you'll run into a wall The more I think about it I don't think I'll think at all 3. I said I'd like to help you, Mam if I am able Our eyes bouncin' off each other like balls on a pool table What is it that you need; can I get you a drink? She said yeah, when I think about it I don't think I wanna think 4. She said "No one can tell the future, I forgive you for your past. There's no time like the present if it's going to last" I said "Go on wait a minute, I'm certain I'm unsure That's sweet tastin' medicine but is it worth the cure?" Chorus... The more I think about it I don't think I wanna think The things I've seen today would make a blind man blink If you watch your feet too close you'll run into a wall The more I think about it I don't think I'll think at all

Lyrics

Danger Girl 1. Her face never slips the shadows, Her voice is trapped in the telephone Her lips lie they're wounded in battle And her love has a bittersweet acid tone 2. Her brainstorms roll like thunder, Her boots are good she don't get her feet wet Even if she swims, they won't pull her under She's the safest danger girl that I've ever met Chorus... She'll ask if you've a match or Maybe an itch she might scratch There's just one catch she'll unlatch, She's tied up in knots and so unattached 3. Where's the glue that holds her together she's Pretty smart but she can't cut it out She's a blue sky a little under the weather One thing's for certain she's living in doubt 4 In my own movie's where she says to stay I keep looking for my co-star Danger girl remains undiscovered Hey! She casts herself in these bit parts

Lyrics

Jaded Buddha 1. He's a jaded Buddha and he's lost his way He dreams of his future and he whistles yesterday Lost the circle went 'round and 'round Raised his consciousness 'til it brought him down He's a jaded Buddha and he's lost his way 2. He's a faded Buddha and he's got no doubt Still worships in his temple but it's all burnt out Walks a path where he sits so still Tryin' to find himself but he never will He's a faded Buddha and he's got no doubt Chorus... And the lotus blossoms are blowin' in the wind In the land where true natures cat gets skinned And there's more than one way to meet the eye Where the Dharma bums are on the run Drinkin' sleepy time tea 'neith a heat lamp sun But the only true fool thinks that he ain't one 3. He's a shaded Buddha and his garden is dead With a growing knowledge that went to his head Dressed in rags from the lost and found He thought they'd set him free but now he's bound Like a shaded Buddha in a garden that's dead (Chorus) 4. He's a jaded Buddha and he's lost his way He dreams of his future and he whistles yesterday Lost the circle went 'round and 'round Raised his consciousness 'til it brought him down He's a jaded Buddha and he's lost his way A faded Buddha and he's got no doubt A shaded Buddha and a garden is dead

Lyrics

Everybody Wants To Drive My Car 1. Everybody wants to finish my sentence, but I don't really like what they say. Their spitting anger lacks eloquence, their worn out cliché is a bit passé. I start to speak and they ask a question, open my mouth and they walk away. I cut the wire on my transmitter, did you receive my last communiqué? 2. Everybody wants to paint my house, but the colors they choose just scream. Do they think I'll be as quiet as a mouse, while they brush away all my dreams? Then they don't want to hold my ladder, so that I can get way up high. Here comes someone with another bucket and, what I did yesterday's not even dry! 3. Everybody wants to drive my car, but nobody wants to pay for the gas. Then when I need her she won't go far, you know I think they all drive too fas. They want to turn down all the side streets, and now the damn thing is obsolete!

Lyrics

GUNSHY 1. Most of my landings are crash Plenty of hopes have been dashed But I'm still a pilot, I got a fire lit Never say ashes to ash 2. I'm crusin' in my old wreck But she's all I got what the heck I can still drive 'er, I'm a suriver The hell with the damn rubbernecks Chorus... Well you once turned me a little gunshy, And triggered somethin' blue But now I know I'll arrive, honey I got the drive Even though I ain't riding with you 3. I've gone air, sea and land Never seem to arrive as planned I' m a little unraveled, but I can still travel Don't spend much time in the quicksand (Chorus) 4. Caught on the downhill slide Baby the water is wide But I'm still a swimmer, there's still a glimmer I'm gonna ride the high tide I'm gonna ride the high tide

Lyrics

Fish In A Fryin' Pan 1. There was a fish, in a fryin' pan Said it's hot in here, well I'll be damned To take my leave's my one desire He jumped and landed in the fire 2. I've been like him, a time or six The apple of my eye, I longed to pick Went out on a limb and I fell hard But lucky me I landed in your yard 3. 'Cause you picked me up, dusted me clean Saw my ugly side, and you didn't scream Smiled real plain, wiped away my tear With a love crystal true and clear Bridge... You're like the last puzzle piece I found down on the floor With a picture of a key that opened your front door Well I guess at first you didn't know if you should open up to me Gave me a peck on the cheek and you ran inside and said "We'll see!" 4. But eventually, I guess I wore you down Now I'm your verb, honey you're my noun No adjective can quite describe The way your stars and mine aligned Bridge... You're like the last puzzle piece I found down on the floor With a picture of a key that opened your front door Well I guess at first you didn't know if you should let me in But you finally did now you and me both wear this silly grin! 5. Now the fish is back, in the fryin' pan Said it's nice and warm, well I'll be damned! To stay right here's my one desire 'Cause life was cold without your fire

Lyrics

Don't Say Goodbye (Say See You Later) 1. When I daydream and loose myself and get into a bind, 'cause I forget time marches on and I got a watch to wind, and everyday's a deadline that approaches way too fast, I'm in the fast lane speeding', yet on the right I'm passed, I see your sweet smile through the steam, of my overheated radiator. I remember what you said this morning, don't say goodbye, say see you later. 2. They say this world is dog eat dog baby, watch out for the teeth. 'Cause there's them that love to backbite, and hand you your own funeral wreath. So I try to pick my battles, watch my words and hold my tongue, and make small talk and pleasantries withes jackals I'm among. And baby you prepare me so well, 'cause I'm no mental gladiator. Dress me in my armor and then you tell, me don't say goodbye, say see you later. 3. It's hard to get from point A to point B from day to day, much less in your life, 'cause they don't usually pave the way There's roadblocks and construction and fatal accidents you'll see, But this commuter's got it cleared up, you meter my on ramp for me. No bumper to bumper, I don't rubberneck. These thoughts of you are my accelerator. I'm listening' to my navigator, don't say goodbye, say see you later.
