Poem on cover art by Denise Shelton
Heres the full poem:

Flying starship gossip waves are orbiting my head,
rumour has it Jupiter and Pluto wish me dead.
Astro Boy told everyone about the other day,
when I said all those nasty things for lack of things to say.
But if it weren't bad enough, Flash Gordon never phoned.
I thought that love was in his eyes, but he was merely stoned.

Track Name: Untitled/Love Bite
Could it be so dark now?
Could it be so damn brand new?
Major concerns from the fruit, yeah
What am I supposed to do?
Yeah

I will admit to it

That I'm starting to look like I dont even try
and I'll tell you why...

I've been close enough to it
that when I started to try
to light up my life with it
I just didn't know why

Going out to spend
This work it just doesn't end
So when it all goes up in flames
I'm the only one here to blame (here to blame)

So I will admit to it

That I'm starting to look like I don't even try
and I'll tell you why...

I've heard all the thought in my head
while I hung out to dry
They come from a place where I make up most of my lies

Gimme a love bite
Gimme a love bite
Track Name: Uke Song
Any time
Any format
Any rhyme
should be fine as long as its clear
as long as it's near to the truth

Don't go out of your way to
find me here
singing songs that are all about you anyway

Give me one more shot to see
if I've really got what you need
Course you've always know my degree
of taking everything as it seems

As it seems...
Track Name: Friday
Staple the pain
and take all the rain
and settle me down to where I can say what I need to say
I'm living it out
so don't let me shout
appear to be kind and simply walk away

This could be love or this could be strife
it never really mattered whether you were wrong unless I was right
cause it all comes back to you

Baby I've gone too far
Now Im stuck here in the back of my car
Baby I've gone too far
Honey I've gone too far

A hard-headed man
willing to stand as long as it takes to grow tired of me
I can see your eyes
lighting up with life
I figure I could stare another time anyway

This could be love or this could be strife
it never really mattered whether you were wrong unless I was right
cause it all comes back to you

Baby I've gone too far
Now we're stuck here in the back of your car
Baby we've gone too far
Honey we've gone too far

I want you back
Back in my life
I want you here right by my side
It could be such a beautiful thing if we try a little harder
if we try a little harder
Track Name: On My Own
Walking down the street
Find a place to eat
Sit up nice and tall
show the world youve got it all and talk to a strange man sitting there
and tell him how you are
show him to your car
we should be best friends
sorry son thats just not how it ends

On my own

In and out of breath
feeling close to death
or maybe not at all
I need someone to check me out and call
Have a laugh and smile with me
working on a song
and its taking way too long
figuring out an end
give me something with less strings to bend

On my own
On my own

And if you find me here
things will be sort of clear
this is what im like alone
its something that I wish were never shown
its something that I deal with on my own

On my own

When Im on the phone
Im all alone
On my own
Track Name: (Send Us Your) Invitation
I dont wanna die
I dont wanna die
I dont wanna die
and I dont wanna live without you
Its hard enough to hear without your voice screaming through my head
There's a lot of ways
There's a lot of ways
There's a lot of ways I could learn to get by
if I really tried, to say goodbye

But it wont take very long
just send us your invitation, invitation
It won't take long at all
just let us know if you really want us to be present there

Take a little break
Take a little break
Take a little break
Take a little break from talking
and listen for the the first time in your life, to someone who cares
Give it all away
Give it all away
Give it all away
Give it all away to someone who doesn't see you more, than ever before

and it won't take very long
just send us your invitation, invitation
It wont take long at all
just let us know if you really want us to be present there

For a while you're gunna go far
I can see it now
It's kinda bizarre
But to see you happy is more than enough to keep me quiet
you just strut your stuff
It's what you do, not what you say
You're wrong
You're wrong
I can't be fooled, just walk away
Oh no
Oh no
Track Name: 401
If youre crying all the time
nothings gunna make you happier
If youre doubting all the time
keep a silver dime to call me up

(call me up)
Cause im that sweet soft voice
(call me up)
who takes care of all the noise
for no one
but you

I can feel you heading home
left your little throne behind you
take an easy step to me
maybe you will see what's mean to be

(meant to be)
see, I'm afraid to live
(afraid to live)
evan with all you give,
I just can't lead comfortably
so now you're gone from me
for me you are history
I led you in, and shied away

I've been lying in my bed,
thinking if I'm gunna talk to you
and I know you'll be right there
ready and prepared to share with me how you feel today

I watch the stars roll up into the bottom of your back
I kiss you hard and tell you that I'm gunna make it last
And it sounds mean, but its how you make me seem
I was lost and all alone
Let me show you how I've grown
Can I come clean?
I admit I was unseen,
It was a different kind of light
but it made me feel alright
Track Name: Stomping Ground
You were the answer to all of it
there was no wrong you could do
You always laughed, lived and loved for it
Now youre away with zero to prove

You only stole my heart for part of a long time
Think of the signals that were written plain in sight
sleeping in my bed
but never getting rest
Hopefully now you will see
what I mean
just remember one thing

Babe I could show you around,
through my old part of town
I sure did show you around
Babe I could show you around
through my old part of town
Through my little old stomping ground

Walking through forest and catching up
carried across a cold river bed
Me I still thought this would be enough
to capture your heart and end this test

You didn't look away when I called you love
Are you just being nice or making things so tough?
Sitting next to me
talking 'bout the trees
when there's really something else on our minds
we sure had enough time

Babe I could show you around
through my old part of town
I sure did show you around
Babe I could show you around
through my old part of town
through my little old stomping ground
Track Name: Do It for Your Parents
Livin' large, livin' fine
Bummin' around til I can wake up to find
A different way to make me happy
day to day
It don't cost much, but its a crime
for it to be so hard to live and unwind
around my friends, just stay calm
we'll make amends...

Cause I can't hardly sleep at night
I can barely touch my hands
Cause I can't find the reason why
I can't make demands
It's such an awful thing to share
But you could do it for your parents, oh yes you can

Taken in full, wash it down
Looking back so I can see whats around
in these woods of a small town, where I am bound
Its almost time for me to stand
Boy, you should see how well I do on my hands
It's not much better
but could you watch?
Just for me?

Now what am I supposed to do,
sit here and get over you?
I don't think I could give you that to hold over my head
Track Name: Minnie
Instrumental
