Track Name: Last Of The Old Folks
The last of the old folks
are leaving behind
A boy who's as young as
the digital divide.

The cloud's the place he goes to retire
What of the suburbs he no longer requires?

When he inherits his ancestral house,
He'll let it crumble with the click of a mouse

He lives to watch his life online
Wasting his time cause he'll never die.

The last of the old folks
are leaving behind
A boy who's as young as
the digital divide.

He's catching up to expectancy time.
Could be the last of his people to die.

Don't care for love when he's always engaged,
no getting bored when he can reload the page.

He's giving up, as populations grow.
forgetting all that generations know.

The last of the old folks
are leaving behind
A boy who's as young as
the digital divide.

Why live in fear of mortality's eye
when he can blind it with the cut of a wire?

With no more fear of what he cannot control
he needn't hear what he's gonn a be told

By moving out, expanding into space
He's losing out of the human race
Track Name: Bei Mir Bist Du Shein
Of all the boys I've known, and I've known some
Until I first met you, I was lonesome
But when you came in sight, dear my heart grew light
And this old world seemed new to me

You're really swell, I have to admit you
Deserve expressions that really fit you
And so I've racked my brain, hoping to explain
All the things that you do to me

Bei mir bist du shein, please let me explain
Bei mir bist du shein means you're grand
Bei mir bist du shein, I will tell you once again
It means you're the finest in the land

I could say "Bella, Bella", even say "Wunderbar"
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are

I've tried to explain, bei mir bist du shein
So kiss me and say you understand

Bei mir bist du shein, please let me explain
Bei mir bist du shein means you're grand
Bei mir bist du shein, I will say it once again
It means you're the finest in the land

I could say "Bella, Bella", even say "Wunderbar"
Each language only helps me tell you how grand you are

I've tried to explain, bei mir bist du shein
So kiss me and say you understand
Kiss me and say you understand
So kiss me and then you'll understand
Track Name: Good Enough
"Good Enough"

Here we are hanging on the strains of greed and blues.
Break the chain and we break down.
Oh, it's not real if you don't feel it.

Unspoken expectations,
ideas you used to play with.
They're finally taking shape.

What's good enough?
For you it's good enough.
But for me, is good enough?
Is good enough for me?

Now you say you're starting to feel the push and pull
Of what could be and never can.
You mirror me stumbling through those

Old fashioned superstitions,
I find too hard to break.
Or maybe you're out of place.

What's good enough?
For you it's good enough.
But for me, is good enough?
Is good enough for me?

Good enough.
For you it's good enough.
But for me, is good enough?
Is good enough for me?
Track Name: Summertime
Summertime, and the living is easy
Fish are jumping and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich and your mama's good looking
So hush little baby, don't you cry

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
And you'll spread your wings and take to the sky
But until that morning, there ain't nothing gonna harm you
With daddy and mommy standin' by

Summertime, and the living is easy
Fish are jumping and the cotton is high
Your daddy's rich and your mama's good looking
So hush little baby, don't you cry
Track Name: Rich Girl
You say that I'm never gonna love
anybody but I really wanna
love just maybe not you. Alright?

I say you're a backseat lover
who will take every chance to
believe I would go without you. You're right.

I wanna be a rich girl,
rolling with all that I have
I know I'll be a rich girl,
when I don't have you

One day will seem much like another
when you don't have the woman who
believes in the fabric of you. Realize.

Don't say that I'm gonna be fine,
as I'm walking out the door after
wiping off all your untruths. Goodbye.

I wanna be a rich girl,
rolling with all that I have
I know I'll be a rich girl,
when I don't have you

I wasn't living with a lover
just to be another whispering
ego-pimp powering through your night.

I wanna be someone's mother
with another who
doesn't need
a mother to carry them through their life

I wanna be a rich girl,
rolling with all that I have
I know I'll be a rich girl,
when I don't have you
Track Name: Kiss Me
Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You'll wear those shoes and I will wear that dress

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift you open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance,
the silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me down by the broken tree house
Swing me, upon its hanging tire
Bring, bring, bring your flowered hat
We'll take the trail marked on your father's map

Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift you open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance,
the silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me

Kiss me beneath the milky twilight
Lead me out on the moonlit floor
Lift you open hand
Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance,
the silver moon's sparkling
So kiss me
Track Name: Triad
You want to know how it will be
Me and him, or you and me?
You both stand there your long hair flowing,
Your eyes alive your mind still growing.
Saying to me,
"What can we do now that we both love you",
I love you too.

I don't really see,
Why can't we go on as three

You are afraid, embarrassed too.
No one has ever said such a thing to you.
Your mother's ghost stands at your shoulder,
Face like ice, a little bit colder.
Saying to you,
"you can not do that, it breaks all the rules
you learned in school"

I don't really see
Why can't we go on as three

We love each other, it's plain to see.
There's just one answer comes to me.
Sister lovers, water brothers,
And in time, maybe others
So you see, what we can do is to try something new,
If you're crazy too.

I don't really see
Why can't we go on as three.
