Track Name: Far As I Can Tell
I can't tell you anything
As far as I can tell
far as I can tell
I wish you well and then I don't
wish you anything at all
anything at all

My words form a fog that obfuscate
all the color from your scene, images from dreams where
I can't tell you anything

And now I'm laughing alone
It doesn't feel like you're home
Let myself sink down too deep, but don't
rouse yourself from your sleep

Wasn't born free, but I can still
hold a vision of a slice of a democratic pie
but thoughts alone can't nourish me
if they could I'd never be
in such abject poverty where

I can't tell you anything
as far as I can tell,
far as I can tell
I wish you well and then I don't
wish you anything at all,
anything at all
I can't tell you anything
Track Name: Why Be Depressed (When You Could Be Happy All the Time)
Why be depressed when you could be happy all the time
If I had to guess, it's not quite so bad in a normal human mind
I must confess I'm a body momentarily in time
So why be depressed when you could be happy

Oh we could be happy now
But I'm mean, ugly and nasty
Oh, we'll make it through somehow
Until the end of our days

So why be depressed when you could be happy all the time
We're not meant to be livin' on our own
We're not meant to die all alone

Oh we could be happy now
But I'm mean, ugly and nasty
Oh, we'll make it through somehow
Until the end of our days

Why be depressed when you could be happy all the time
If I had to guess, it's not quite so bad in a normal human mind
I must confess I'm a body momentarily in time
So why be depressed when you could be happy
