Track Name: Ready To Go
READY TO GO

There Was A Silence
You Could Hear A Pin Drop
I Could Feel The Time Stop
It Was The Right Time
I Was Ready To Go

I Heard "jon" What?
You're A Stick In The Mud
Then I Fell With A Thud
It Was A Hard Time
I Knew I Was Ready To Go
I Was A Ready To Go

I Felt High
I Was Light As A Kite
Then I Reached For The Light
It Was A Good Time
It Was Easy To Flow

And I Heard "jon" What?
You're A Stick In The Mud
Then I Opened My Eyes
I Was Staring At My Body On The Bathroom Floor
Talking To The Stereo

And I Could Swear, I Coud Swear I Was Ready To Go
Ready To Go
Ready To Go

Then I Opened My Eyes
And Realized
I Was A Beam Of Light And Love

Yes I Opened My Eyes
And Realized
I Was A Beam Of Light And Love
Track Name: Feed On Me
Feed on me

I fell down
An empty Well
Five years old
I yelled and yelled
Felt a stir
Broken arm,
Something moved
False alarm
Feed on Me


I dreamt I
was a captain at sea
and my ship
hit an iceberg peak
sole survivor
without a flare
till I saw
a hungry polar bear and said
Feed on me
Feed on me
Feed on my ee ee ee ee

Long ago
In a former life
Met a cub
To weak to fight
Kingdom come
To those who dare
Throw themselves
In the lion’s lair and say

Feed on me
Feed on me

Know I know
I’m just a quoan
Living in a world
Of electrons
Watch them spin
They move so fast
That’s our fate boy
Life’s a gas

Feed on me
Feed on me
Track Name: Baby Life
Baby Life
Cmaj
Petroleum Jelly
Gmaj
Vaseline Lens
Fmaj
Favourite Radiohead is the bends
Cmaj , Gmaj, Descent to F#Maj, down to Fmaj
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Repeat
With your souvenirs
From Peggy’s cove gift shop
Billy Jean Friends
Lighting up Disco squares in my heart
That’s the part you syndicate
In my heart
Track Name: Zen & Motorcycles
Zen And Motorcycles

I hear my echo bouncing off the mountains
And it feels so good

Zen and motorcycles

Can you see how far we’ve driven on this endless road
You said you couldn’t make it but I knew you could

Zen and motorcycles

Are you afraid of your Ego
Are you a stranger to yourself
You seem to think Im some kind of hero
I can’t solve your problems I’m no help
Track Name: 33rd Floor
33rd Floor
Intro guitar first for 1X

Am, Bm, Dm, Am
I hold a black belt in karate
I got a masters business degree
I keep accounts in offshore coffers
E7, F6, Am
A safe haven for my tax-free dollars
Am, Bm, Dm, Am
Id even sell off my own mother woo hoo!
Id put two thousand out of work
Don’t like to admit it, but it makes me kinda happy
I even like it when they call me a jerk
Even like it when they call me a jerk
E7, F6, Am
E7, Am ,E7 Am
whooo hooo
whooo hoo
Whoo hoo
Whooo hooo
Am, Bm, Dm, Am
To me they’re just a piece in the pie chart
It makes me laugh when they say have a heart
didn’t get to the top by being kind
E7, F6, Am
so take your petty problems and get outta my mind
take your petty problems and get outta my mind
Am, Bm, Dm, Am
Ain't got no time to hear your worries, who hoo!
Fed you the line about adversity and strength
It’s not my fault if you’re seeking attention
from the thirty third floor you aint nothing but ants
from the 33rd floor you aint nothing but ants
CHORUS
E7, Dm, Am, E7, Dm, Am
So Jenny cancel my appointment
I’m flying off on my private jet
Power chord Major, descent to G#, G, F#(2on the E, 5 on the A),
its lonely at the top but the view is fantastic
Fmaj
because the more you lose the more I get
the more you lose the more I get
Am, Dm, Am, Dm
So you can judge me if you want to
You know that gimme gimme never gets
Am, Bm, Dm, Am
And when Im lying on my death bead
Staring at the make
Ill be able to say that I have no regrest, can I truly say that Ill have no regrets
E7 Am
Wooo hooo
Woo hoo
Woo hoo
Track Name: Sun Salutations
Sun Salutations

Your life
An expression
Of the impossibility

A new Inner light
Just a reaction
To the inevitibility

Don’t ever forget
Divine calculations
Make you realize

Youve only got this moment You blink and then its gone
But you make fun of my incense, my sweatpants and my song
Were all just looking for answers, you find yours in wine
Dont burst my bubble im focused in a childs ….pose

Don’t Snub my sun salutations
Don’t Snub my sun salutations

Your heart
A petition
of accountability

And Deed
Accumulation
And connectivity

Don’t ever regret
Sublime subjugation
Not negativity

You think I look silly with a carpet on my back
Your body is a vehicle running out of gas
Im standing upside down praying to the sun
The only thing that matters is gone gone gone

Don’t mock my sun salutations
Don’t mock my sun salutations


Don’t Snub my sun salutations x8
Track Name: Go Getters
Go-Getters

D7

Am, AminF, G, Fmaj, Eminor, Fmaj, Cmaj
Every day I walk the tight rope
Without hope
Of fitting in where I don’t belong
It’s hard to get you all to sing along
D7
Ohhhhhhh

Repeat
Well you’re so cold you never bother, to answer
You know were real people writing those letters
Don’t have to frown on all the go-getters
Ohhhhhhh

Repeat
But people can’t help to get under
Your thunder
But even dirty water puts out a fire
At least I got a girl to admire
D7
Ohhhhhhh

Am, Gmaj Am, G, D7
Oooooooo
I guess that’s why they call us
The go-getters
I guess that’s why they call us,
the party poopers
I guess that’s why they call us,
The losers



D7

Am, AminF, G, Fmaj, Eminor, Fmaj, Cmaj
If everyone is such a genius then Jesus
Won’t have the nerve to ever come back
So cant you people cut him some slack
D7
Ohhhhhhh

Repeat
You live your life like it’s a freak show, a low blow
I’m falling short of meaningful words
Everything you say is absurd

D7
Ohhhhhhh

And everyday I walk the tight rope against hope
My body I treat it so kind
I shake and bake so I can unwind

D7
Ohhhhhhh

Am, Gmaj Am, G, D7
Oooooooo
I guess that’s why they call us
The go-getters
I guess that’s why they call us,
The no-brainers
I guess that’s why they call us,
The losers

I guess that’s how it ends

D7
