Track Name: Diamond Throat
Woke up two days ago
to a dream of a girl with a Diamond throat
and she cut off her eyes and she kissed me
like the sky

Cant change that she ain't tamed
and i wish her well, well shes gonna be on her way
Farewell

Cut the country down in size & i guess afterwards
i realized what its like
to be in Heaven.
Wonderin what the story will tell
when the world does seem to swell up
and explode
it'll turn into pieces of gold
and we'll all
and we'll all
and we'll all, Pray
Yeah we'll all Pray-- ey ey

Heard a noise & a rattle snake
yeah it wrapped up around me as i quivered
and it started to shake, it started to shake.

There goes that dandelion
and so fine and so thirsty like a little sea lion
well lets play, yeah lets play-ey ah.

Heard about it in the afternoon
Heard about it in the afternoon of May
Or was it March, or was it March.

She whispers only at the door
and she sings like a siren
yeah she sings like whore
well for me,
she does it all for me.

Bye bye blackbird
bye bye blackbird
bye bye blackbird
Track Name: Born To Make Noise
Well Mama said to me last night
Well son tomorrow we begin our flight
i see the amber in her eyes
MAMA was always full of lies

She said i’d meet so many men
and one day i would understand
Well Mama told me it’d be alright
that i’d find love and she stay by my side
But i told her i said

Wonderin where they find all the toys

well Mama i was born i was born to make Noise.
Track Name: These Are My Friends
She was my friend
no shes not yours
but can we share
my friend of course

We went down twice
and then three more
cause all my friends
love the same whore

I dont know why
but maybe they
can shed some light
over my blank head

Cause i see women all the time
they created clouds
and count to nine

We were at nine
now twelve more friends
get to share
and they just dont seem to care
no no no no

i have four friends
yeah they dont know me
but they all shine
in between HER Kitty.
Track Name: Alien Girl
Told my mama today that she was gonna marry
the preachers son
but when i woke up from my dream
I didn't realize i was the only one.

Mama told me a story yesterday and she said
it was the news.
Well mama don't worry your pretty little heart
cause thats just music called the blues.
She told me about this afternoon
man tried to commit suicide.

Claimed he saw an alien
and with his eyes was crucified.
And the Alien said


Mama told me yesterday was just
a day ago
But if i'm still living, Am i alive well
she didn't know.
Told me about this cave where men use to
be puppeteers.
I see the world around me
and its still the same
nothing but cheers.
So lets laugh and say

Lets laugh and say

Mama told me to many things
now I just look
pretty away from my rings
I open my eyes
and i see myself for what i'm worth.
I'm just a little beautiful blonde angel
living on earth.
A piece of meat to some
but to a few i might be a little less,
searching for a brave brave soul to
bring me what this world calls caress.

See i'm an alien that crucified a man
for committing suicide.
They talk about in the news a little boy the other day
called me blue.
He thinks that i'm a dream
because his eyes can't see the beauty that I am.
Am I an alien girl
or just a girl that dreams
well here on earth.
Who knows that IMA.
He knows that IMA.
Track Name: En La Mente De Picasso
Oye como canta
Como canta
Como canta
El Sol

Mira como canta
Mira como canta
Las estrellas

ay como cantan de amor
cuando cay Picasso de
tu corazon
Vida ven a gozar con los angeles

viajemos con los angeles
cuando canta yo sonrio mi amor
y cuando no se enojan los amores
claro que no


ay como cantan los árboles contigo

mirame quando llo pinto con signo
cuando juego junto a ti
todos nos vamos a ver

ay que buscar los misterios
que se encuentran en mi corazon

ay que buscar los misterios
que encuantras en todos los aires

ay que buscar los misterios
que ay en las luzes que nunca perdemos


y cuando la gente se vay a los bainos
y nadie se cansa y nadie se queda
y nadie se cansa y nadie se queda
y nadie se cansa y nadie se queda
ay amor

ay amor
cuando jugamos a la media suerte con todo camino
y toda la gente
cuando jugamos a la media suerte con todo camino
y toda la gente

sonreímos
sonreímos
sonreímos amor

sonreímos
sonreímos
sonreímos
sonreímos
amor
sonreímos
sonreímos
sonreímos
sonreímos
amor

Caemos toda la gente
con miedo y como con miedo
con miedo

y como confiamos en el amor

ay que por ahí giran todos los errores

y todos caemos
caemos otra vez
caemos otra vez
caemos otra vez
caemos otra vez


Callemos otra Vez
Track Name: Lets Be Natural Again
Hey! 
well how are you today
Well how are you 
now that the sun is rising
and the clouds are showing off
well how are you now
that your still alive




you feel like the world was 
ending everyone was pretending to love you
to be your friend
to be your friends
but now you know 
that everybody loves you
everybody loves you more than yesterday
still you're not satisfied
still you want to claim
that you're not good enough to be yourself
around me
well can i take you again to the place where 
we once knew the world to see
like a telescope wrapped around the eyes 
that i use to dream of the ones that use to be yours
well hey!
can we hope for something new?
can we hope that the statues that are build for you
well that they continue to float
baby stare at the flag that you once saw waving by
now imagine yourself all alone
with no technology to glorify the way you look
come one now
lets be uncivil
lets be animals 
lets be natural again
lets be natural again
one more time
one more time 
one more time

the way the waves of the ocean
light up your eyes
its so magnificent

like diamond that were never found
we keep on living and surviving
like the world before
human touched the ground.
