Track Name: Cowabunga (Surfin' Moo.S.A)
I can't go surfing on a cow
As hard as I may try
I can't go surfing in the soybeans
Because they'll die

I wanna ride a wave but
I'm in the middle of cornfields
& it's bummin me out
I just wanna see how it feels

I can't go surfing on a cow
As hard as I may try
I can't go surfing in the soybeans
Because they'll die

If I ride over them
They'll get squished & be goners
& besides, I don't have a cent
To repay the fucking farmers

I can't go surfing on a cow
As hard as I may try
I can't go surfing in the soybeans
Because they'll die

I can't go surfing on a cow
As hard as I may try
It won't support me in the water
& then I'll die
Track Name: Smoking
I'm quitting
God help me
Not sleeping
I'm quitting!
Track Name: Palm Tree Dream
I'm exhausted
Legs sore
Walking fields
Walking fields
Now the shoreline
Unreachable
Soggy fields
Lower yields
-----I'm exhausted

Muddy riptide
Scratched my board
Pointy pebbles
Dirty pebbles
What a buzzkill
Sun was high enough
Then they scratched her
I got a sunburn
-----I'm exhausted

Take me surfing
In a dream
Even though I'll wake up
Even though I'll wake up
I'll be crying
More than likely
Seeing all those palm trees
And the way you're glowing

Let's go surfing
Right here locally
Let's go surfing
Just a pillow & you & me
Track Name: Ground
It's amazing how much ground you can easily make
When your gaze is down, toetips anchor ground
Why would you fixate on all the faraway waves
When you're close to one? Melt into the sun

I wish it were sunny out
He never comes around
I wish it were sunny out
So I could see the ground

I feel crazy, looking out at this Grayscale sky
It will harm me, it'll open & swallow me
I want to throw things at it & break the spell
That it's cast on me & the surfers beside me

I wish it were sunny out
He never comes around
I wish it were sunny out
So I could feel the ground
Track Name: Song 4 Speed
I know that you just want to
Help me get shit done
But it's so hard
To keep this up with you

You want to trick me into
Thinking that there's a flaw
In my attention span
That's where you swoop in

I think that you should spend some time
Away from me
Write a paper for my neighbor friend
She could use a hand

You need somebody to
Consume you
Or you'll face impeding doom
I'm done giving my cash to you
I can't keep abusing you
Track Name: Friend Who Died
I wanna go outside
But it would remind me of my friend who died
I really miss him
I wanna go outside
But it would remind me of my friend who died
I really miss him

I can't remember the last time I cried
I can't remember the last time it was sunny outside

I wanna go outside
But it would remind me of my friend who died
I really miss him
I wanna go outside
But it would remind me of my friend who died
I really miss him

I can't remember the last time I smiled
I can't remember what it was like to be a child

I wanna go outside
But it would remind me of my friend who died
I really miss him
I wanna go outside
But it would remind me of my friend who died
I really miss him

I wanna go outside
But he's out there

I won't go
