Track Name: Wild West
Don’t need no reason,
to get some sun on my face
to get outside & enjoy this magical place

I went to a ranch,
got myself the chance
climbed in the stirup & rode off on horse back

got up to a gallup,
no longer in the saddle,
smile split my lips; Bliss.
Can’t believe I’m doing this

Flew like the wind;
adventure begins.
When I got knocked off
as a fox stopped us
solid like a rock.

[Have you seen it]
Lost my Pork Pie Hat
Said the classified ad.

Things were good when we were
racing; time lost all meaning.
It was dangerous but oh so much fun

Sitting on the ground;
down but not out
watching mare going
becoming mare gone

Breeze hits the top of my head
I reach up to find my hat is gone
no where to be found.

Good times are over
left me reflecting
my loss
as I walk
myself back to town

[Have you seen it]
Lost my Pork Pie Hat
[Did you read it]
Said the classified ad.
Track Name: Dan's Haul Crates
Two brothers named Dan.
Lived down the street,
they bought a moving van.
had a big plan
made a deal shook hands
to move all the boxes
as fast as they can
get all the money
and then disapear
retire on an island
sippin sangria
Comes down to one last thing
gotta get through their very first gig

Since the day they born both little shady
You know their Vans a little shakey
Them bros were a little flakey
Established Vancouver 1980
One got arrested and the other stepped in poo.
Somewhere along the ride he also lost his shoe
finally arrived threw the mattes on the ground
he took a nap on the matt and fell asleep sweet and sound

Old man & his boy had to finish the job
After waiting 14 hours just to learn they weren’t robbed
boxes and beds were a plenty...
I don’t know.
How they moved the piano.

Established Vancouver 1980
You know their Vans a little shakey
and them brothers were a little flakey
Established Vancouver 1980
Track Name: Hairline
Darling Darling get on the dance floor
and dance with me.
kick off your shoes and come dance with me

Rude boy on the dance floor
Rude girl on the dance floor
Get on the dance floor Chelsea
Get on the dance floor and
dance with me

You know you’re gonna have a good time
& everything is gonna be fine, to-night
let’s dance! let’s skank! come on!
I don’t wanna dance alone tonight

Chris don’t need no solo you know he owns this beat
My hairline is informal just like his music treats

Rude boy on the dance floor
Rude girl on the dance floor
Get on the dance floor everybody
Get on the dance floor and
dance with me

You know you’re gonna have a good time
& everything is gonna be fine, to-night
let’s dance! let’s skank! come on!
I don’t wanna dance alone tonight
Track Name: Space Case: Part 3
Screaming past traps
Smelling burning wax
wings are melting
Hit the Park and dash
In his space winnebego
it’s a prism of plagiarism
Breaking down into a spectral schism
Triplicating the bands of light
So far apart that you just can’t see ’em

It’s a secret fight; He going it alone
A long & lonely flight; with no way home

Dressed up wishing he’s a doctor king
More like a space clown covered in bling
D.R. no halo Wear a fake crown take down
Two hits for one hundred henchmen
Spear thru the soft spot of the kraken
Now it’s just the two of them
Mano a mano it’s a FaceTime duel

It’s a secret fight; He going it alone
A long & lonely flight; with no way home
Track Name: Benny Bones
Feel it, feel it;
He can feel it in his bones
Born to move along to it
his blood must be two tone
He’s benny ; He’s benny,

Introducing Benny Bones.
One day when he just closed his eyes
and gave in to old maestro
He Dances; In trances.
Metronome romances
his 3 piece is Rhinestone
but no one knows it’s pre-owned

He’s magic on the dance floor
He’s really got it going on
Benny, you know he’s going to win it all
Benny’s on the dancefloor
Helephunk encore

He did it; he did it,
He did it on his own
He wandered off the dancefloor
Into another ballroom

He won it he won it;
Competition going on
he was so far inside his head
he didn’t even know

Benny gets home; he looks down
Ribbon round his neck;
top his head a gold crown

He’s magic on the dance floor
He’s really got it going on
Benny, you know he’s going to win it all
Benny’s on the dancefloor

Helephunk encore
get out of the way helephunk
