Track Name: Funny Way
You have a funny way of looking at things. It's just a funny way of looking at things.
And you have a funny way of letting it show - a funny way of letting it show.

And you have a funny way that's making me smile - a funny way that's making me smile.

Oh yeah... doo doo doo doo doo...

And you - you've got a funny way of moving through lifetimes. It's like you're moving through lifetimes.

And, you have a funny way of letting me know - a funny way of letting me know.

Oh yeah.... a huh... doo doo doo doo doo...

And you, you've got a funny way of looking things. It's just a funny way of looking at things.

And you... you've got a funny way of looking at me - a funny way of looking at me. Stop looking at me.

doo doo doo doo doo...

And you have a funny way of letting me know - a funny way of letting me know.

And you - you've got a funny way of letting me go - a funny way of letting me go.

Oh yeah.... a huh... doo doo doo doo doo...
Track Name: Nothing Ever Happened
I knew it was gonna happen. One moment was all it would take.
And so I started laughing. That was my first mistake.

I blew out all the candles. I threw a penny in a water fountain. And I wished upon falling stars. But nothing ever happened. Nothing ever happened.

I have undying faith. A guardian angel sits beside me.
But each October I grow older. And every winter's getting colder.

I made a wish in the dark in a tunnel. I jumped across the cracks on the sidewalk. I wished upon falling stars... but nothing ever happened. Nothing ever happened. Nothing ever happened.

I blew out all the candles. I threw a penny in a water fountain. And I wished upon falling stars. But nothing ever happened. Nothing ever happened.
Track Name: Don't Kill Me With Kindness
Well, I saw him walking... in the community garden.
I asked what his name was. He told me it wasn't.
We sat by the fountain... as the sun started sinking.
We smiled at the same things, I knew then, that might be a problem.

Don't kill me... don't kill me... don't kill me, don't chill me... don't kill me with kindness.

When I smelled the night jasmine, I knew that I must be going. But he held my hand tightly and asked me to stay by his side till the morning.
His mystique turned to darkness... as the night fell around us.
And we lay in the shadows of the moonlight amongst the flowers in the garden.

Don't kill me...

I won't be coming home tonight. I found another love tonight. I hope that is all right. Don't kill me.

Now, time is an arrow... that shoots through his silence.
And while with another... I felt his presence... his disappointment and sorrow... as I drank in the moment. I know that there might be trouble in the early hours of the morning.

Don't kill me...
Track Name: My Lemurian Lover
If you'll be my Lemurian Lover, I'll be your Pleiadian Princess.

And we'll travel round the planet wearing nothing but light bodies in our iridescent spaceship on the floor.

If you'll be my Lemurian Lover, I'll be your Atlantean angel.
And we'll drive down to the mall. And we'll walk around butt naked, getting tantric in the food court on the floor.

If you'll be my Lemurian Lover... If you'll be my Lemurian Lover...

Why don't we do it on the floor.

If you'll be my Lemurian Lover I promise I won't disappoint you. I will worship and annoint you. And I'll let you smell my roses. And I'll even lick your toes's. Then I'll kneel down before you on the floor and I'll worship you some more.

And then I'll give you more. We can do it on the floor. And then I'll give you more. We can do it on the floor. And then I'll give you more. We can do it on the floor.
Track Name: Zecharia Sitchin
Zecharia Sitchin, I think you're really bitchin'. But, you're just too old for me... besides I am not free.

Zecharia Sitchin, I'll meet you in the kitchen and we'll drink a beer or two. And I'll drink a toast to you, and to all the other free thinkers too.

Zecharia Sitchin, I think you're really bitchin' but you live so far away. I can't reach you here today.

Zecharia Sitchin, I'll meet you in the kitchen and we'll drink a beer or two. And I'll drink a toast to you, and to all the other free thinkers too.

Alex Ayres, Christopher Marlowe, open minds can lead to sorrow. Joan of Arc and Alice Bailey, Djwhal Khul's words inspire me daily. Chris Carter (Black), Mr. Rod Serling send my imagination whirling, H.D. Thoreau and Pablo Picasso. These are only some of all the ones who I admire for thinking free.

Oh, Zecharia

Zecharia Sitchin, I think you're really bitchin' but you live so far away. I can't reach you here today.

Zecharia Sitchin, I'll meet you in the kitchen and we'll drink a beer or two. And I'll drink a toast to you, and to all the other free thinkers too.

Oh, Zecharia.

Alex Ayres, Christopher Marlowe, open minds can lead to sorrow. Joan of Arc and Alice Bailey, Djwhal Khul's words inspire me daily. Chris Carter (Black), Mr. Rod Serling send my imagination whirling, Herman Hesse, Nikola Tesla. These are only some of all the ones who I admire for thinking free.

Oh, Zecharia

Zecharia.
Track Name: Sonnet LIX
If there be nothing new, but that which is
Hath been before, how are our brains beguil'd,
Which labouring for invention bear amiss
The second burthen of a former child.
Oh that record could with a backward look,
Even of five hundred courses of the sun,
Show me your image in some antique book,
Since mind at first in character was done,
That I might see what the old world could say
To this composed wonder of your frame;
Whether we are mended, or whe'er better they,
Or whether revolution be the same.
Oh sure I am the wits of former days,
To subjects worse have given admiring praise.
Track Name: I'm Not Tammy
He calls me up, he calls me on the phone.
I tell my mother - tell him I'm not home
What should I say, to make him go away?
He sends me letters - he sends them in the mail.
and he sends me candy and it's stale.
What should I do? He thinks that I'm you.
But I'm not Tammy. I never was. I never will be.
I'm not Tammy - Tammy's not me.

Now, he calls me up, he calls me on my cell phone.
And this time I answer cuz I'm all alone.
What should I say to make him go away?
Oh, I'm not Tammy. I never was, I never will be.
I'm not Tammy, Tammy's not me.

No, I'm not Tammy. I never was, I never will be.
I'm not Tammy, the girl of his dreams.
The girl of his dreams. The girl of his dreams.
Track Name: Skyclad
Oh, you... you caught me off guard.
While I was out in my backyard.
I was nude. I was naked. Oh I was baring it all.
You saw my shame, you watched my grace fall.

And you, you took me by surprise.
Oh, the skin that we wear - how it mystifies.
Oh I was stripped, yet modest lying under the sun.
You saw my shame - what my religion has done.
And so I walked down the street on that Sunday morn
with humility and anger but no clothing was worn.
And I was nude and I was naked and I was baring it all.
You saw my shame, you watched my grace fall.

Now, my shame is a coat that I've worn for too long.
So, watch me disrobe through the words of this song.
I am stripped of my paint here and I'll bare it all to the world.
I'm a soul in a container, I'm an innocent girl.

So I walked through the churchyard on that Sunday morn
with a flower in my hand but no clothing was worn.
I was nude, oh I was skyclad, yeah I was baring it all.
You saw my shame, you watched my grace fall.
You saw my shame, you watched my grace fall.
Track Name: Fighting the Good Fight
I tend to want what I can’t have
Or else I don’t know what I want
I wish that I could just make up my mind
When I order in a restaurant
I tend to get myself in strange situations
and then I do things that I later regret
I wonder sometimes if I’ll ever succeed here
to get out of emotional debt.
But I’m fighting the good fight

I tend to worry about where I’m heading
Or else I ponder upon where I’ve been
I wonder sometimes what I’d do different here
If I were a congress woman
I tend to worry about our planet
You know I think of her as my old friend
I wish that we could all just get it together here
but I know everything good thing must end.
But I’m fighting the good fight…

This voice inside my head – it tells me I’m no good
It tells me to give up. You know I’d give up if I could
This voice inside my head it says I’ve already lost the race
It tells me I’m too old to keep up a steady pace
But I won’t give up the race – no I won’t give up the race…

Cuz I'm fighting the good fight.

Now, I don’t believe in the devil but I do believe that evil exists and I’d rather walk in the light of day than in the darkness shaking my first. And I have a code that I live by. It says what goes around comes back around. Treat others how you’d like to be treated. And what was lost once will be found.
And keep fightin’ the good fight…
