Track Name: Guinevere, in Raybans and Chucks
I am a dad I am not cool
in my minivan that is blue
Drive to the mall with my dear spouse
to buy some crap for the house

Circling the parking lot, clouds seem to open up…

There she is waiting at starbucks
Guinevere, in Raybans and Chucks
Radiant, a modern day Helen
Waiting for a suburban dad

I have two girls they are so cute
in their matching pink tu-tu-tu’s
Drive across town for their dance class
and we’ve got a 45 minute pass

She walks back from dropping off
And light streams down from above

There she is…
Track Name: Headed East Again
As we approach the pass
we all increase our speed
Slow river below us
of dust and snow and heat
Headed east again…
As the 5 goes straight
the desert shows its heat
Deep reservoir in my heart
since 1973
Track Name: Patriotic, but Fucked Up
a man at the bar says a hero walks across this land
with a head full of ghosts and pension-check in his hand
he looks the part and wears the scars with pride
but a hero of mine once said that heroes always die

patriotic but fucked up
this man’s spirit’s not enough

a man at the bar says a hero walks these very streets
with nothing to say to the nobody that he meets

patriotic but fucked up
this man’s spirit’s not enough
this is what we’ve done to you
royal marines and airmen too
our patriotic nature killing you

a man at the bar says a hero walks across this floor
with a pint full of Guinness and a double up jamo pour
sat in the corner where he drinks a silent toast
with brothers lost and foes gone to ghosts
