Track Name: An Idea For A Movie (The Vandals cover)
I got an idea for a movie,
And it goes like this
Check it out, it's about a boy who gets his finger caught
In a bottle of Mr. Pibb

And they go on adventures,
I think it could be big
Is it too soon to whisper Oscar?
Put a happy ending there and it'll write itself, I swear
All we need are some meetings and a lead

I got an idea for a movie,
It's about this guy
Who wished and wished 'til it came true,
And now this kid can fly
I got an idea for a movie,
and here's my pitch
I get a job and quit my band,
And you stop being a bitch

And we will have adventures,
Like the boy and his bottle did
Is it too soon to whisper Oscar?

Put a happy ending there and it'll write itself, I swear
All we need are some meetings and a lead
With a happy ending there this thing will write itself, I swear
All we need is some trick photography

I forgot one thing about the guy
Who gained the ability to fly
It was actually only for a foot or two
And only an inch or so high
Track Name: Fire (Bruce Springsteen cover)
I'm driving in my car
I turn on the radio
I'm pulling you close
You just say no
You say you don't like it
But girl I know you're a liar
'Cause when we kiss
Ooooh, Fire

Late at night
I'm takin' you home
I say I wanna stay
You say you wanna be alone
You say you don't love me
Girl you can't hide your desire
'Cause when we kiss
Oh, Fire
Fire

You had a hold on me
Right from the start
A grip so tight
I couldn't tear it apart
My nerves all jumpin'
Actin' like a fool
Well your kisses they burn
But your heart stays cool

Romeo and Juliet
Samson and Delilah
Baby you can bet
Their love they didn't deny
Your words say split
But your words they lie
'Cause when we kiss
Mmmmmm, Fire
Fire
Track Name: Black River Blues (The .357 String Band cover)
Black river blues,
My cheatin’ heart’s been torn in two.
I’d love to stay with you awhile,
But I’ve got to burn one thousand black river miles,

Before I sleep, before I rest.
‘Cause I’ve got two loves burnin’ holes inside my chest,
And it’s something you know I gotta do,
Before I lay me down to sleep here beside you.

When I get home…
When I get home…
When I get home…

There’s a two-lane highway in my mind.
My heart’s divided by white lines.
So what am I supposed to do,
When the lane I love is the lane takes me further from you?

And that black river’s callin’ my name,
And if I don’t go I know I’ll go insane.
And I’ll walk a thousand miles in these worn out shoes,
And then I’ll lay me down to sleep here beside you

When I get home…
When I get home…
When I get home…
Track Name: Magnolia (J.J. Cale cover)
Whippoorwill's singing
Soft summer breeze
Makes me think of my baby
I left down in New Orleans
I left down in New Orleans

Magnolia, you sweet thing
You're driving me mad
Got to get back to you, babe
You're the best I ever had
You're the best I ever had

You whisper "Good morning"
So gently in my ear
I'm coming home to you, babe
I'll soon be there
I'll soon be there
