Track Name: (Down at The Starlite Bar)
The books of chemistry that taught us all we know
have all been checked out for the last examinations before we go on our summer vacations for a roadtrip to the sun sleep on the bottom of the ocean and get drunk with all our friends to make some bright yellow flickers to the basement to the back and I know that they're quickly fading but I thought I'd cut some slack to all the headbanging quakers who attack the neon moon but we can stave them off with candy we can sleep with our harpoons so if you...

So if you say you'll watch the water while we're gone
and keep the comely fires burning we'll come back the stately sons with all the silks and all the spices for the
wives and for the kids then we can cut the screeching high-end and start boosting all the mids. You better...

(down at the starlite bar) come meet me in the night.
We'll roustabout intoxicating holy melodies despite
all of the clamoring naysayers who critique our every move we'll all astound them with our sagely sayings and shamanic grooves right now.

Pull back the curtains' untouched night light of the moon
and we can kill the biggest whale and then sleep with our harpoons you better...
Track Name: Lucky Ninjas
Shahin cracked the safe, he didn’t shah the same way
Zach was jivin’ for, but we all saw the queen and
Knew that she would not be staying

Tony shot the gaze, a shout from shawn and
Shaved a blaze from his guitar, a blazoned christening
A bout behind an endless bummer…

Beloved nothing’s certain
And maybe I won’t be home tonight
Behind the silver curtain’s light

Bobby bombed the phase as Barry kicked the kit
So Kid could crash the floor as Showtime jammed
To Jane all airing out the Sheets of Easter

Bloody bashed the bass, the Dirty Faces spitting
Out the ragged roar, a broken clock to break a block
Behind a rock beat banging…

Beloved Nothing’s certain
And maybe I won’t be home tonight
Behind the silver curtain’s light.
Track Name: Kingdom in The Sun
We waved the white flag overhead in the white skies above but nothing was left to be resolved.
All the soldiers were sorry for what went wrong
and the minstrels were bothered to write their songs.
And if the good king does not return from the duel
at least he left us here with all the jewels.
Oh, and even though we know we're too far gone
I can see now that we'll soldier on...

Hear the strings from the broken glasslands sway..yeah
See the lovely light shine in your eyes today..yeah
Hear the ozone pianos drawl away..yeah
Peel myself off my mouth just to say..yeah

Someday I know redemption will come
that's today at our Kingdom in the Sun
A kiss from the sugarcane princess of plums
one time only at our kingdom in the sun
And I know our kingdom has already come
That's today at our Kingdom in The Sun
