Track Name: Europa
Au revoir, my beautiful Europa
Track Name: Conservative
What does it mean to be conservative?
Does it mean to hold back,
When you really ought to give?
To be conservative, do we the sing old songs?
I still love Randy Newman, sing the old songs.

Does it mean to love your mother, but hate the thought of new girls doing new things?
Does it mean to love your bother unless he wins the lottery?

What does it mean to be conservative?
Do I have to love guns and making lots of money now?
To be conservative...

Do I have to pretend that labs don't exist, and
People haven't made a ship that's up and gone to the moon?
Gone to the moon!

Hold onto the truth.
Hold onto the truth.
Hold onto the truth.

What does it mean to be conservative?
Does it mean that I cry hearing grandma's favorite song?
To be conservative, do I have to hold back?
(Singing Randy Newman…)
Do I have to hold on?
(Father, Mother, God…)
Can I sing the old songs now?
Track Name: Moses Malone
Be that person, own yourself.
Carry on, carry on, carry on.
Focus upwards, shed yourself.
Carry on, carry on, carry on.
Moses Malone.

Moses Malone,
Moses Malone.

The gig is up my good friend,
Your time is gone, I fear.
A rolling stone, or candles.

The only thing about it, a tiny fact I bring up now to you, my friend:
We only get one life, we only get one go 'round,
Be true to yourself.
Stay on top of stuff just like he would.
Moses.
Track Name: Rashama
Rashama
Over ocean, fly away.
Rashama
Out beyond the waves

Never flatten your wings from high
Know that means to die.

Rashama
Over ocean, fly away.
Rashama
Out beyond the waves

Free to swim across the sky each day,
Wish that I could see.

Rashama
Over ocean, fly away.
Rashama
Out beyond the waves

Beyond the waves.
Beyond the waves.
Track Name: Feel What U Want
Feel what you want,
Cut in half what you want,
Cut in half.

There's nothing that a hundred men or more would ever do.
Why won't you wait at the gate for the hate?
x2
Track Name: Other Star
Other star, so too far,
Where no one knows who you are.
Take me there 'cause life's not fair,
And I can breathe the air.

Other star, where you are
Everyone sings to each other.
But mostly I just want to cry,
'Cause all of my milk has spilled over.

Bring some wine, and a will and a way;
Don't forget her picture too.

Feel the water getting hotter,
Maybe not a place I ought to lie down.
What if my star is mine for a reason,
And that's okay with me?

Other star, from afar
You really are beautiful.
When it hurts, and bad feels worse,
I'll look at you and smile.
Track Name: How to Help
Nothing lately
Shakes me to the bone.
Missing something,
Makes me feel alone.

How to help?
How to help?

Everybody
Linking to themselves
Maybe me too,
Got to kill that self.

How to help? How to help?
How to help? How to help?

Be of use.
Be of use.

How to help? How to help?
How to help? How to help?
Track Name: B❤bygirl
She knows all my secrets (all my secrets)
She knows all my secrets, all my own.

VBL

No more waiting for my baby girl
No more waiting for my baby girl

(I love you tiny baby girl)
Track Name: MYOB
It never ceases to amaze me that an utter stranger would try to lecture me. How do you have the time and nerve to relay and opine so frivolously? People make an assumption that we're all here, totally lost without their fine advice. People think that we want -- no NEED -- so much help... and we do, but they don't have what we want.

I myself never give that kind of a nudge, preferring to be here if they should ask. Not to say that my help's so great, and besides, no one's obliged to pay me any mind. So if you have a pang to say something to one of your family members or friends, remember what an ass you'll be if you think that you helped anyone in your hubris.

Unsolicited advice goes down like the plague.

Vaccinate, or do not, who cares?
Vote for Trump; Hillary; Feel the Bern;
We know what's best!
"Buy this car!"
"Don't you dare!"
"How rude!"
"Treat yourself!"
"Save the world!"
"Don't be a pest!"

Unsolicited advice goes down like the plague.

Mind your own business.
Mind your own business.
Mind your own business.
Mind your own business.
Track Name: Long Way to Go
I don't get out to shows that much these days.
Sometimes I don't get out at all.
It's not that I miss doing things,
Guess I miss myself the most.

The world outside seems far away.
My friends have given up on me.
The only things that keep me warm inside
Are my love for my girls, and melodies.

But it's long, long way to go (I've got a long, long way to go)
A long way to go (So many years, I know)

I remember all those years ago,
When I could set myself afloat.
You never ask what freedom is,
When there's nothing to let go.

But it's long, long way to go (I've got a long, long way to go)
A long way to go (So many years, I know)
