ON EARTH LYRICS AND LINER NOTES

SLEEPIN' IN

Sunrise
Don’t wanna open my eyes
Don’t wanna see no blue skies
I’m shutting off my alarms
I’m closing the blinds
I’m pretending it’s the middle of night

My friends
Everything is warm in my bed
So I pull the blanket over my face
I hear the birds sing but they’re light years away
As I slip back into my dream one more day

Sunlight
Don’t bother me, you’re too bright
You’re waking me up; that’s not polite
I’m not giving in
I’m not going downstairs
I’m not brushing my teeth or washing my hair

My friends
Everything is warm in my bed
And I don’t care if skies are blue or grey
Feel my fears and troubles all fly away
As I slip back into my dream one more day

Midnight
Blankets of stars in my sight
Time for one more dream to take flight
But I can’t go to sleep
Can’t turn off my brain, so many ideas
I can’t stand the thought of throwing them all down the drain

My friends
Everything is warm in my bed
But I have too much energy to sleep
I toss and I turn but nothing feels right
So I sit up to watch the stars one more night

BABY THAT'S YOU

I've got something, something in my eye
and I can't see
It's an apple, the apple of my eye
and Baby, That's You!

I've got something, something in my teeth
and I can't sleep
It's a caffeine pill, keeping me awake
Baby, That's You!

All these things causing me discomfort and pain
Through the sun and through the rain
Your smile has always stayed the same
All these things causing me discomfort and pain
Through the sun and through the rain
Your smile has always stayed the same

I've got something, something in my chest
and I can't breathe
It's all the pollen, when the flowers bloom
and Baby, That's You!

All these things causing me discomfort and pain
Through the sun and through the rain
Your smile has always stayed the same
All these things causing me discomfort and pain
Through the sun and through the rain
Your smile has always stayed the same

Ooh la la la, ooh la la la la
oh la la la, ooh la la la la
oh la la la, ooh la la la la
ooh la la la...

Ooh la la la, ooh la la la la
ooh la la la, ooh la la la la
ooh la la la, ooh la la la la
ooh la la la!

I've got someone, someone on my mind
and I can't think!
It's a person I wouldn't want to lose
and baby that's you.

FALL EVENING

High beams up
Stretch real wide with
tires working through the neighborhood
Nothing’s the way it should be
but it’s a fall evening, so

Lighten up
Pack your bags and
pick your favorite layer to throw on
This is your paragon month
The weeks you claim
you’ll eat again and you’ll call your friends
and maybe get a highlight for new year’s eve

It’s midnights and sore throats
walking through the only store that’s open
Songs never syncing to the stereo
Just make a decision
and make it a fast one
‘cause i’m gonna burn out any day
Everyone’s gone, what can i say?

I LOVE YOU (I GUESS)

Well I know you wanna go and get high
but there's something that I must confess.
You see, I love you, I love you, I love you I love you,
I love you love you love you, I guess?

I don't know if we will survive
but I think it might be for the best
To tell you that I love you, I love you, I love you I love you,
I love you love you love you, I guess.

I'm tired of getting old with nothing to show for it
These seeds of love that I've spread out,
Let's find some time to water one now.

And I know and I know and I know you wanna go and get high
but there is something that I must confess.
I love you, I love you, I really do love you,
I love you love you love you, I guess.

These feelings I'm holding onto are nothing to joke about.
Yeah, I start getting butterflies the minute I look in your eyes.

And I know you wanna go and get stoned
but there is something that I must confess.
You see, I love you, I love you, god damn it I love you,
I love you love you love you, I guess.

And I know you wanna go and get high, high, high
but there is something that I must confess.
You see, I love you, I love you, I really do love you,
I love you love you love you, I guess.

I guess I guess I guess that I love you
I guess I guess I guess that I love you
I guess I guess I guess that I love you...

(Whistling)

STANDING AROUND AT YOUR PARTY

Gimme just a second to check myself out
Cause I'm kinda not having
As good of a time as I thought I'd have here
This party is trash!

The best of a time is not here where I currently am
I would smile but I'm pretty miserable
Standing around at your party
Standing around at your party
THIS IS A MISERABLE TIME!

Gimme just a second to check myself out
Cause I'm kinda not having
As good of a time as I thought I'd have here
This party's STILL trash!

The best of a time is not here where I currently am
I would smile but I'm pretty miserable
Standing around at your party
Standing around at your party
THIS IS A MISERABLE TIME!

STUCK HERE

Lead me out of this misery ‘cuz I’m bleeding
Feeding all these leeches latched on my skin
January is gone, and this year keeps rollin’ along
as if everyone I’ve ever known hasn’t moved on

Hit the road if you’re lucky I don’t blame you
running away to the west coast or overseas
Life keeps getting shorter, but the hours get longer and longer
as the pressure in my veins does decrease

‘cuz I’m stuck here, stuck here, stuck here
‘cuz I’m stuck here, stuck here, stuck here

Send me out of Jersey, I’m going crazy
watching all this youth flow down the drain
& by the time my hair is all grey, I hope I’ll find somewhere to stay,
I can die there, far from Jersey, but not today

‘cuz I’m stuck here, stuck here, stuck here
‘cuz I’m stuck here, stuck here, watchin the world pass me slowly

the birds and the bees, all the flowers and the trees tell me I’m leaving
You best believe it

GIRL WITH THE SUNKEN EYES

To the girl with the sunken eyes:
This is a love song in disguise
I see the way you blow that trumpet all day;
What do I have to say for you to treat me that way?

To the girl with the sunk eyes:
This is crude, I must apologize
To hold you so close would leave me comatose
I said I would do the most to get you out of those clothes

I need to know if you want me too...

I'm the guy with the broken dreams
who just believes in everything he sees
I could tell from your grin that the position I'm in
meant that power could spin and you could lead me toward sin

If that girl with the sunken eyes
could find a way back into my life
I don't know her name but I can tell it's a shame
That she could be to blame for all this hurt and this pain

I need to know if you want me too...

To the girl with the sunken eyes:
I've been waiting for you all my life
And now you're driving me mad from the intentions I had
I need to know what went bad to make those pretty eyes so sad.

ON EARTH

Stars fall down all around and explode in the friction they receive.
And if they could reach Hollywood, to land safely among the palm trees,
What would be the cost to the life that they all lost?
To sit there looking at the sky and watch as all those meteorites
Burn up in the stratosphere.
While sitting safely way down here
On Earth.

Sing with me a prayer for free.
I'll pay you when my check comes through.
And if it doesn't cash, take my guitar at long last.
It's the only thing that I have to give.

How many hands must I shake? How many smiles must I fake?
Before we get to be singing this song on TV
While the radio waves broadcast across the Milky Way

And what will they say about us here on Earth?

LAMBCHOP

Cast out at sea
All of the hope you give me
To go on with daily living and just be

Words that you said
Still float around in my head
like "be safe but don't forget to have fun"

The world it hurts,
I know it's not the worst thing that can happen
You left so soon I couldn't choose
the words to say "I'll miss you"
But now you're gone, I took too long to say
Goodbye

The world it hurts,
I know it's not the worst thing that can happen
You left so soon I couldn't choose
the words to say "I'll miss you"
But now you're gone, I took too long to say...

Walk on the beach
So soon you fell out of reach,
It's ok, it's not the end of your life

Live on in the ones you've changed so much for the better
Now go off into the heather
You're free

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT (bonus track)

Driving alone, late afternoon
Feelin’ blue
I turn around, to look at some trees
But what do I see

Damn!
In the car next to mine there’s a face
I knew I couldn’t take for granted
No!
When it’s love at first sight
I know I can’t let you drive away
That’s why I hit you with my car

Do do do do...

Side of the road, you next to me
This is my dream
I ask you out, cheeses and wine
But you decline

Still!
I thank god that I now know your name
And your license plate number
I’ll
Hold it next to my heart
Every day til I see you again
At my court date in July

Do do do do...

“Mr. Pizzle, what do you remember about the incident?”
I remember how your bright red hair flew back as the airbags hit you in the face
You had the cutest expression as your car was spinning circles in the fast lane
Baby I’m upset
Why’s your brother sending me death threats
We’ll show him our love’s built to last
When you’re out of your full body cast

Do do do do...
