Track Name: THANKS
people ask me "is there some
body watching over us?
do we all go home when we die
and is there love?"

well there are many theories out there,
believe one of them if you must
i don't know for sure but i am not scared
to cause a fuss

so i tell em i thank god
i tell em i thank god
you know that i thank god for my reason

you know that i thank god
and when i thank god
well i thank god for The Beatles.

now everyone who's born will die
who is excluded? surely not i!
so i cannot tell you who is right,
buddha or jesus,

but they both seem like real cool guys
and i'll bet they would not think twice
if i chose to make up my own mind
and use my freedom

so i'm free to thank god
i'm free to thank god
you know that i thank god for my reason

and you know that i thank god
cause when i thank god
you know that i thank god for The Beatles.

well i thank god for The Beatles
well i thank god for The
thank god for The
i thank god for The Beatles.
Track Name: One Night I Found God
one night i found god in my room all alone.
i said "oh my god!" and i shook in my bones.
since then i've been calm, waiting for to go home
to my "oh my god" when this life it is done.

i've been in love two of three times at the most.
suspicious of love, could it all be a hoax?
am i a dumb girl in my room in the light
concocting a love so i can't feel the night?

i like to crack smiles and i like to have fun,
but two of my friends died at the edge of a gun.
have i forgotten how it felt to be stunned?
may it remain in my heart at the bottom.

i've wanted to die as long as i can recall.
good thing that i never let the knife fall.
i wouldn't have known all the joy i do now,
joy to be alive, joy that cannot be bound.

i want to sing out to the sky, to the clouds.
i want to sing loud, make a thundering sound.
but one day my sweet voice will be deep underground.
no one of god's gifts may we keep once we've found.

if i could give advice so that people could hear,
i would say "think twice before allowing fear
to creep into your mind and to color your life.
an action done in fear, it can never be right."

one night i found god in my room all alone.
i said "oh my god!" and i shook in my bones.
since then i've been calm, waiting for to go home
to my "oh my god" when this life it is done.
Track Name: Taking Video
the sky he is a father and he has sun
who shines on everyone shines on everyone shines on everyone
the earth she is a mother she's the only one
who grows with everyone grows with everyone grows with everyone
you'd like to know your brother but you never will
he's livin in the run livin on the run livin on the run
you'd like to have a sister but you never will
she's singin with the nuns singin with the nuns singin with the nuns

i'd hate to hurt my lover but im sure i will
i batter everyone batter everyone batter everyone
i'd hate to have another but i'm sure i will
i run from everyone run from everyone run from everyone
i'd like to leave my body but it's hard i've heard
i'd rather be a bird rather be a bird rather be a bird
oh just to fan my feathers in the golden sun
and not bother anyone bother anyone bother anyone

are your parents there taking video?
there taking video?
are your parents there taking video?
there taking video?

Track Name: Dead Girl
what can i say when i'm rotting?
got no face, aint got no body.
i'm the dead girl at the party
saying "hey".

may my voice live longer than me,
may my songs reach people plenty.
now i'm only three and twenty
years of age.

may this find you in the ocean
of your dreams where you are floatin.
when the tide comes, row your boat in,
watch the waves

don't be sad that i've gone missing,
me and jesus are french kissing!
life is blessing, death is blissing,
it's okay

it's okay
it's okay
it's okay: it's always been this way.

think not of the end of days,
remember the beginning, hey,
we made it here as small bebes,
now aint that strange?

you've lived more than once or twice,
it's been forever, it's been nice.
you try to tell yourself through christ
and burning sage.

you're in prison, here's the secret:
there's a key and guess who keeps it,
there's a wall and you can leap out
of the cage.

there's no time, it's all one moment.
go outside and ask the stone and
ask the air to ask the water
in the lake.

she will say
she will say
she will say
"it's always been this way"

it's always been this way.

what can i say when i'm rotting?
got no face, ain't got no body,
i'm the dead girl at the party
saying "hey"
Track Name: As I Roved Out
as i roved out on a bright may morning
to view the meadows and flowers gay
whom should i spy but my own true lover
as she sat under yon willow tree

i took off my hat and i did salute her
i did salute her most courageously
when she turned around well the tears fell from her
saying "false young man you have deluded me"

a diamond ring i owned i gave you
a diamond ring to wear on your right hand
but the vows you made love, you went and broke them
and married the lassie that had the land

if i married the lassie that had the land, my love
it's that i'll rue till the day i die
when misfortune falls sure no man can shun it
i was blindfolded i'll ne'er deny

now at nights when i go to my bed of slumber
the thoughts of my true love run in my mind
when i turn around to embrace my darling
instead of gold sure tis brass i find

and i wish the queen would call home her army
from the west indies, amerikay, and spain
and every man to his wedded woman
in hopes that you and i will meet again
Track Name: You Don't Love Me
u dont love me
u dont love me
u dont love me
in the way that you should
in a way that is good
Track Name: we never went to the woods
oh my love i cant stand to be without you
oh my love i cant stand to be alone
oh the silence began when you left this morning
and it grows and it grows and it grows and grows

dont go yet we never went to the river
dont go yet we never went to the woods
oh my love we never saw the big dipper
dont go yet we still have time we still could
