Track Name: Day and Age
I know that rock ‘n’ roll
Cannot save my soul
But it makes me feel alright in the meantime
So darlin pass me a drink
And I’ll drift to think
That maybe one day we’re gonna wake up

In this day and age
With all the wars and the rage
And all the aeroplanes I don’t wanna get on
Darlin let’s live in the trees
Honey let’s drift on the breeze
Let’s get down on our knees and believe in love again
Track Name: Cinnamon Bear
Back on top it’s the dancing bear
“What’s all the commotion?”
Well, he got a new promotion and he
escaped from the zoo and he doesn’t need permission
You don’t need permission when you’re on a special mission, don’t ya know?

“What’s all this?”, I ask the Cinnamon Bear.
He says “I’m doing fine, I’m on my third glass of wine.
Here, take a ride upon my magical hide.”
So we went through the trees, the forest and the streams, don’t ya know?

Don’t leave me alone (no, I don’t want to be alone)
You can call me on the phone or you can find me at home
I’ll be daydreaming of the day that I die
Nah I’m just kidding, I’m in the land of the living
Don’t ya know?
Track Name: Golden Avenue
Cry me river
I’ll get in my canoe
And we’ll float on down
to Golden Avenue
I am reaching for Neptune
Cos the stars slip right through my fingertips
I’ve been gazing at the atmosphere
But I know that you need me here…

I’m a man of convictions
But there are too many restrictions
Sum it up and then I start to sink
I learned to swim so I’ll be fine I think
I am not a magician
But there’s magic in the air
We are living outside ourselves
There’s no reason to be scared

So cry me a river
I’ll get in my canoe
And we’ll float on dow-ow-own
To Golden Avenue
Track Name: Animal at Night
Forgive me Lord, for I know exactly what I do
But I do it anyway
I guess some may say I have gone astray
Problem is, is I kind of like it that way

Like an animal at night
Like a string without a kite
Like a dog that’s ready to bite

Forgive me Lord, for I don’t know who I am
I though I did, but I’m feeling like half a man
It doesn’t matter, we’re floating through the air
Or maybe it matters, but I just don’t really care

It’s a fine line (a little too fine for me)
So I’ll define it the way that I want it to be
