Track Name: Letter to the Los Angeleans [BEFORE]
This is a letter
to the Los Angeleans
with trepidation I write this song
I have lived among you many years and never before
have I felt so compelled

But my heart
trembles for our future
I come to you now as friend
and sister

Blessed with talents you've brought joy to many
but now it's time to preempt despair

October 17th or any day
there may be a massive earthquake
that will throw our lives into a crisis
We've seen Haiti but haven't witnessed
friends and family buried, hurt or thirsty

Privilege has made us blind
may we open our eyes
Track Name: Where's My Horse?
Once again
Caught up in the daily grind
Where’s my horse
Got my nice house and my wife

But my heart’s made of stone
Cuz everything is where it belongs

The sun is setting very soon I'll be there
All I need is somewhere else to go
But I’ll drive to work tomorrow

I was made
for Star Wars and the Empire Strikes Back
A warrior
In my suitcase is my gun

Hung
I'm hung
Like a door--
I need a journey tonight

The sun is setting in a day I’ll be old
The fire in my lungs has turned to coal
But I"ll drive to work tomorrow

Tomorrow

Tomorrow

Wait a minute
I want to do it all over again
I want another chance
I want it to be different
I want to be a robot (it’d be better)
I want to be a ham sandwich (it’d be better)
Give it to me (2x)

What do you want me to be
A creature so under your control

But the gun is in my hand
And my horse
Is waiting by the door
Next to the driveway
For the ride of a lifetime
And I will ride
I will ride

Sunset
Here I come
West!
Track Name: Trust (Is Just a Word)
Say you’ll be with me forever
Say you’ll never gonna leave my side
Say you’re with me in a fever
Say you’ll stand beside me through the night

Trust is just a word you use. . .today
But does it matter what you say
When trouble comes along will you stick around
My favorite fair-weather friend

Say you love me from the deep end
Say that you love me from the depths of your heart
Send me a letter with your promises
Will you feel better if you make it long

Trust is just a word you use today
And does it help you get your way
In good times look at all your friends and loved ones
What if they disappear
Track Name: Everything Already
I’m taking it back
Everything back
You’ll wonder where I’ve gone

Taking it back
Everything back
Won’t you remember me at all

Tomorrow
There’ll be someone else
Leaving a picture on your pillow

Soon I’ll be gone
It won’t be long
I’m out the door
Everyone says I can’t do this
Anymore

Tomorrow
There’ll be someone else
Leaving a picture by your window

Memories
I’ve got you covered
Maybe you’re my family
Memories
I’ve got you covered
Maybe you’re my family

Oh (oh. . .)

Reprise


Tomorrow
There'll be someone else
Leaving

Memories
I’ve got you covered
Maybe you’re my family
Memories
I’ve got you covered
Maybe you’re my family

Oh
Track Name: Did You Feel That? [DURING]
All we need is water and love, all we need is water and love.
Track Name: HOLD ON!
Don’t know what
To ready for
The walls are down
The broken doors--

Can’t Hold On

Anarchy is a sweet perfume
Burning up
The living room
Can’t Hold On

Get out get out while you can
Don’t look back ever again
The world we’ve built has just fallen
It all goes in a second

Panic is
An open door
We’re sliding through
Don’t know what for

Can’t hold on

Everything’s in
Gasoline
Our policies
Are burning

Can’t hold on, hold on

Get out get out if you can
Don’t look back ever again
The world we’ve built has fallen
It all goes in a second

No wingman
No telescope
The temple has
No window rope
No sugar
For my bread today
What prayers
Can you say now

Wake me up
Three feet of rain
You got up
On the wrong day

Can't Hold on

Batter down
In the diamond ring
Sleeping in the stadium

Can't Hold On

Get out get out while you can
Don’t look back ever again
The world we’ve built has just fallen
It all goes in a second

Freedom comes at a price
Americans

Get in line
Americans

Smell the gas
Americans

Anyone got a match?
Track Name: Lover Won't You Hold Me
Lover won’t you hold me
Hold me in the dark
Lover won’t you hold me
While ambulances run

Lover won’t you hold me
Hold me in the dark
The police won’t notice
What we do

Discreet desire
Is not discreet
Discreet desire
In shadows meet

Lover won’t you hold me
Hold me through the night
Keep your back against me
And rest for awhile

Help me keep on breathing
Until the morning light
Keep your arms around me
Let your hands surround me
Won’t you keep me close to you

Discreet desire
Is not discreet
Discrete desire
In shadows meet

The night is all we have
The city sleeps

Lover won’t you hold me
Hold me in the dark
Lover won’t you hold me
While ambulances run

Help me keep on breathing
Until the morning light
Keep your arms around me
Let your hands surround me
Won’t you keep me close to you

Lover won’t you hold me. . .
Track Name: Prisoner
I’m taking it easy
There’s nothing to do
The blood on the freeway
Isn't yours

I was wanted for murder
But fate set me free
When something big happens
It’s just a little misdeed

The judge found me guilty
And I was locked, on my way
But then the bus started shaking
On the open highway

The bruises and black eyes
I’ve already seen
My family abuses
From a life that has been

I’m walking the freeway
And I will walk till the end
Right into the ocean
It was always my plan

The judge found me guilty
And I was locked, on my way
But then the sky started shaking
O the open highway

Give me a chance
Life is the strangest romance
With good luck and bad
The city is sad
But thanks for looking out for me

I’m taking it easy
There’s nothing to do
The cops on the freeway
Are drinking beer

I should be in prison
Wasting away
But oh my the mercy
Of this beautiful day

Give me a chance
Life is the strangest romance
With good luck and bad
The city is sad
But things are looking up for me

I’m taking it easy
Track Name: Whatcha Doin' [AFTER]
Fold a blanket
And say good morning

The neighborhood
On the freeway
Is bright

Cook your eggs on my
Engine kitchen

Come by later
For story-time

Hey
Whatcha doing (2x)

Honey doesn’t it
Feel like
vacation

All we need
Is to find
Some shade

Waking next to the trees
Isn’t so bad

All our troubles were so
Man-made

Hey
Whatcha doin (2x)
Track Name: After Disaster
After disaster
We never talked
You never called me again

After disaster
Did you forget?
We almost had
Love?

After disaster
Everything changes
After disaster
It’s not the same

After disaster
You changed your name
Or changed your mind
All the same

After disaster
You broke my heart
You never saw
The pain

After disaster
Everything changes
After disaster
It’s not the same

After the disaster, I did everything I could do to find you
I called your name from rooftops I used flares I even used those annoying-ass air horns they use at the Dodger’s game alas you never came to me I only have one last thing I could possibly resort to and that’s to sing this song right here. I hope that one day you hear it. . .

After disaster
Nothing is the same.. .
But I’ll wait
As long as I have to
Cause I’m not
Giving Up
On you
Yeah, yeah, yeah,

After disaster
You’ll call my name
I’ll always feel the same. . .

After disaster
I want to hear you
After disaster
I’m dreaming of you
After disaster
Nothing’s the same
It’s after disaster
Track Name: O Say Can You See (the Future)?
Someone says
Pack your bags
Pack everything you need
You never know
What misery
Will come to you

Someday
Maybe
Never

Someday
Maybe
Tomorrow

Interlude

O say can you see the future (3x)
Is it bad?

O say can you see the future (3x)
Is it good?
Track Name: Start Again
Start again
Start again
Begin
Start again
Everyone

Open book
Open world
We don’t know what will come
We just hope
Everyone

Say good-bye
To your old life
It’s a brand new world
A new beginning

It's the end
Be my friend
Begin
Don't forget
Anyone

Just a look
Open world
We don’t know what will come
We just hope
Everyone

Say good-bye
To your old life
It’s a brand new world
A new beginning

A brand new day
