BIG CREEK

I’m no Huck Finn
But then again
You’re no Mississippi

Nobody ever wrote a book about you
So this song will have to do
(Will it do)

I’m a lot like you
Just passing through
No way of knowing
Exactly where I’m going
Then I’m gone
Roll on, Big Creek, roll on

I just want to say thanks
For all the good times
On your muddy banks
(Good times)
So…thanks
(Good times)

When every day was a daydream
I’d float downstream
(Good times)
(Good times)

I’m a lot like you
Just passing through
No way of knowing
Exactly where I’m going
Then I’m gone
Roll on, Big Creek, roll on

Boys will be boys
Or so they say
They’ll build their little dams
And put stones in your way
But you can’t hold back time
It rolls on and on
Nothing can withstand the flow

Boys will be boys
Or so they say
Yeah they’ll build their little dams
And put stones in your way
But you can’t hold back time
It rolls on and on
Nothing can withstand the flow
Roll on, Big Creek, roll on

I’m a lot like you
Just passing through
No way of knowing
Exactly where I’m going
Then I’m gone
Roll on, Big Creek, roll on

I’m a lot like you
Just passing through
No way of knowing
Exactly where I’m going
Then I’m gone
Roll on, Big Creek, roll on

CHESLEY BONESTELL SCENE

A room with a view
On an alien moon
I’m counting on you
I’m counting on you
To pull me through

Wheel in the sky
Goes round and round
I’m counting on you
I’m counting on you
Never let me down

Is it real
Is it a dream
I saw your picture in a magazine
I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene
Wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene

Rocket ride on the silver screen
To infinity or somewhere in between
I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene
Chesley Bonestell scene

Rings of Saturn
Go round and round
I’m counting on you
I’m counting on you
To pull me through

Lost in space
Now I’m found
I’m counting on you
I’m counting on you
To bring me round

Is it real
Is it a dream
I saw your picture in a magazine
I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene
Wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene

Rocket ride on the silver screen
To infinity or somewhere in between
I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene
Chesley Bonestell scene

Is it real (real?)
Is it a dream (dream!)
I saw your picture in a magazine
I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene
Wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene

Rocket ride on the silver screen
To infinity or somewhere in between
I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene
A Chesley Bonestell scene

I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene
I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene

I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene
I wanna live in a Chesley Bonestell scene

Something wicked this way comes

Track Name: Shot in the Dark
SHOT IN THE DARK

If you want to sparkle
All you need is a spark
Can’t fly like an eagle
When you’re swimming with the sharks
And you can’t take a shot in the dark
If you leave the light on

Oh Mandalay
There’s gold in them there hills
Or so they say

It’s like I told you before
If you want to find what you’re looking for
Just close your eyes when you walk out the door
See what you set your sights on

If you want to sparkle
All you need is a spark
Can’t fly like an eagle
When you’re swimming with the sharks
And you can’t take a shot in the dark
If you leave the light on

Oh rain delay
I left my umbrella
In San Francisco
Hey hey hey

Oh Mandalay
There’s gold in them there hills
Or so they say

Csikszentmihalyi said go with the flow
But how you gonna go
When you just don’t know
Where the flow is going
Ain’t no way of knowing
What you set your sights on

All it takes is a spark
Can’t fly like an eagle
When you’re swimming with the sharks
And you can’t take a shot in the dark
If you leave the light on

So turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light

Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light
Turn out the light

It’s like I told you before
If you want to find what you’re looking for
Just close your eyes when you walk out the door
See what you set your sights on

If you want to sparkle
All you need is a spark
Can’t fly like an eagle
When you’re swimming with the sharks
And you can’t take a shot in the dark
If you leave the light on

DEATH TO THE MEANIES

Gather round now, children
And you will hear
An epic tale of laughter
In the face of fear

Rise and shine
For the uprising
Death to the meanies
Long live the king

Undercover of darkness
We put our armor on
On steeds as fast as quicksilver
We rode into the dawn

Sweet land of mystery
Of thee I sing
Death to the meanies
Long live the king

It’s the greatest story ever told

Death to the meanies
Long live the king

It’s the greatest story ever told

Death to the meanies
Long live the king

Like a wave of righteousness
We crashed through the defense
Swords flashed in the sunlight
Dispensing comeuppance

The battle cry
Had a familiar ring
(They shouted)
Death to the meanies
Long live the king

It’s the greatest story ever told
And it never gets old

Death to the meanies
Long live the king
Death to the meanies
Long live the king

WAKING UP (IN SOMEBODY ELSE’S DREAM)

Hot potato
Got to pass it on
Incognito
Cue the gamelan
Pizzicato
When the heartstrings come undone

Why
Do I
Keep waking up
In somebody else’s dream
Why
Do I
Keep waking up
In somebody else’s dream
Keep waking up
In somebody else’s dream

Agitato
Is the voice inside
Obligato
Not to be denied
El Dorado
I’ll see you on the other side

Why
Do I
Keep waking up
In somebody else’s dream
Why
Do I
Keep waking up
In somebody else’s dream
Keep waking up
In somebody else’s dream
