Track Name: Aquarian Eyes
Wild is the woman
and real hip to the sky
she blinks and all of the sudden
I'm as good as hypnotized

Old Hollywood silhouette
floating on a natural high
I've felt it once, now I can't forget
the weight of the aquarian eye
the aquarian

I don't care
if that which brought me here
took me there

Hear the big heart beating
quicker as the moon rolls by
the honey glow comes sweeping
like a veil over her and I

I am a newborn baby
and its for the milk of her I cry
I need a mother to save me
the doll with the aquarian eyes
the aquarian

I don't care
if that which brought me here
took me there
and I don't need
no more time alone
to write a poem or read
I wanna stick her soul
deep inside of me
I wanna lay her down
I wanna scrape her knees
I wanna lift her gown
like I'm a real sleaze of a guy
when she looks at me
with glistening green
all knowing and seeing

aquarian eyes
aquarian eyes
Track Name: Money Woe
Everything you've ever wanted
there before your eyes
still, you feel you don't deserve it
and you can't say why

hey
they don't believe me
they think that I'm seeing something that isn't there
hey
the whole thing is fleeting
and I fear I'd be cheating
if I dared not to care

I am the fattest cat to inch up the pole
I fully comprehend my god given role
I need no respect and expect no control
give me no money woe

all the honey in the forest
gushing through your claws
when it dawns, you can't ignore
the swelling of your paws

hey
they don't believe me
they think that I'd need to pull it out of the air
hey
there is no reaction
they are seeing a fraction
of whats really there

I am the fattest cat to inch up the pole
I fully comprehend my god given role
I need no respect and expect no control
give me no money woe
Track Name: Cool With You
Is it cold in here?
should the window be so generous
to usher all the cool air in
so that we snuggle up for warmth again

if its cool with you, its cool with me

there's nothing on TV
and I'm tired of all the talk shows
tired topics, oh we've heard them all
we can put on stand by me
or annie hall

if its cool with you its cool with me

and when we're feeling cute
we can talk about the way we felt
around the time that we first met
I'm so surprised you felt the way you did

if its cool with you
suits me too
if its cool with you
its cool with me
Track Name: Hearsay
Hey
that you been scratching at the side of my skull?
That you been rapping on that coffee table
as I fight not to pull
the mat from under your bowl?

Hey
I hear you're cashing phoney cheques at my bank
and sucking gas out of my lawn mowers tank
I heard your mother, she drank
and that your father shot blanks

is that all
hearsay
hearsay?

Hey
I'm making movies, let me sell 'em the pitch
I hold you down and you develop a twitch
I give your eyelid a stitch
and drop you off in a ditch

Hey
you look so pretty when you smile like that
your hair slicked back so that you look like a rat
that has just slipped from the twat
of some inelegant brat

is that all
hearsay
hearsay?

hearsay
hearsay?
Track Name: Fish
A childish game of keep away
tomorrow plays with yesterday
the tide that pulls the sea of change
up over your head

the quiet of the moment
when you find your fish is dead
and ponder if to flush it
or to dig a plot instead

the only home you've ever had
you love your mom, you love your dad
and your day job, hey, it's not half bad
when your boss lets up

the winter seems so bitter
but you're well over the hump
keep your chin up, chum
you're just in a little slump

you know that everybody takes a different route
to the park

and it's not so far

the winter seems so bitter
but you're well over the hump
keep your chin up chum
you're just in a little slump

it's just a childish game
of keep away
tomorrow plays with yesterday
the tide that pulls the sea of change
up over your head
