Track Name: The New Age
I shrug my shoulders at the new wave.
Drink a little in the day.
kick my feet up on a long chaise
sleep off everything I can.

Think I wound up in the wrong place
When I stole home base.
I never think about the long game
When I need a place to land.

It's all right to be bad sometimes
To get a little peace of mind.

There's a lightning on the water front.
A fire in the west.
And you, and I, I guess.

I take up arms against the new age,
smoke a little for the taste.
I only travel at my own pace,
stumbling down the barrio.

I’m always wearing such a long face.
Drifting out to space.
While Serpent charmers in a failed state
are playing on the radio.

It's all right to be bad sometimes
To get a little peace of mind.

There's a black out in the gallery.
A murmur in my chest.
And you, and I, I guess.
Track Name: Smoke Signals
She pines, the times,
have been dramatic.
Those smoke signals still rolling
off the hill

Down Sherman ave,
where she lights her cigarette.
It's been a while,
but she still got time to kill.

Every station plays
the same old static.
The backseat dreamers
drive to drinking songs.

Up the way,
well, I used to know a quiet place.
But someone had come and claimed it
while I was gone.

From the corner bars to the windowsill,
those distant stars, and little wishing wells.
She's wagging a crooked finger at the lord.
Saying I’ll get mine, my friend,
when you get yours.

She pines
and pines, but it ain't no-one's fault.
There's just nothing here
for your kind after all.
