Track Name: Technolament/But The Poor Squirrel...
Technology so bad for our health
Technology binds us from ourselves
There was a time when we did so well without it
There was a time when we had much cause to doubt it
And now we don't remember what that time was like

Technology is the devil's curse
Technology could things get much worse
Can you explain how things got so automated
Can you explain why we are so isolated
You can't explain why yesterday is so much unliked
Track Name: Country Club Prison
Country club prison, palm tree lined courtyards
Country club prison, barbed wire lined beaches
This could be heaven but I just can't tell
A paradox into which I fell
This could be heaven but it ain't so swell
A paradise that feels more like hell

Country club prison, palm tree lined courtyards
Country club prison, barbed wire lined beaches
This could be heaven but it's just a trick
Beneath the glamor they've piled on so thick
This could be heaven but it ain't so slick
Looks aren't everything when you feel homesick

Country club prison, palm tree lined courtyards
Country club prison, barbed wire lined beaches
This could be heaven but it just can't last
It's got the sunshine but it's got no class
This could be heaven but that vibe has passed
Must find a way to get out of here fast
Track Name: 022605
I left New York City behind
Thought I was gonna lose my mind
For awhile there was nothing here to do
I just sat around on my ass
Staring at the trees and the grass
Realized I had to act to cure these blues
And so one night I stepped out
Didn't expect to find such a crazy scene
I walked into the Peacock Room
And found myself surrounded by a dream

My mind was on a bend
Felt like I was back home again
I couldn't believe the things I saw that night
Electricity is universal
Eccentricity needs no rehearsal
All at once my senses took their flight
This vibe was real, it was not pretend
And I fell in love all over again
The whole thing blew up in my face
When I realized the underground is everyplace

It doesn't matter where you are
Everywhere is a world bizarre
And you just have to open up your eyes
It lurks in unexpected places
In new surroundings and different faces
Seek them out, you just may be surprised
And whether you are north or south
The best things are always found by word of mouth
The only thing I can say is wow
Anywhere just could be here and now
Track Name: N.F.C.
