Track Name: Don't Take Your Dog to the Park
Don’t take your dog to the park
Cause the park holds a disease
Next to the trees, next to the leaves.
Don’t take your love out on me
Till my feelings have returned,
Back to my art, back to my heart

Put me in a basket,
Tell me not what is going on
Show me a magazine
That’s cleaner than clean
Yeah-ee-yeah

(but) Don’t take your dog to the park
Cause the park owns a disease
Next to the trees, next to the leaves
Don’t take your love out on me
Till my feelings have returned
Back to my art, back to my heart.

Put me in a basket,
Tell me not what’s going on
Show me a magazine
That’s cleaner than clean

Take me to the answers
Show me all the places you love
Will I be afraid of the truth
Always changing stations
When life just gets too big for you and me
Take me to the church on time

Don’t take your dog to the park…

Take me to Alaska
Show me all the places you love
Will I be afraid of the park
Always switching train tracks
When life just gets too big for you and me
Take me to the church on time.
Track Name: Dizzy Playground
Find the King of plastic straws
He’s lost
In the name of Santa Claus
When you’re feeding the dumb,
Sucking your thumb.
Ali Baba, blah blah blah
Magic -marker, -broomstick, -carpet ride
If they think they’re fooling you,
Just play along,
"knock knock...Who’s there?"

Into pleasure you’ll fall
If you swallow it whole
Into heaven you’ll fall
If you do what I say
Into pleasure you’ll fall
If you swallow it whole

Aesop’s fables rocks the jukebox pops golden hits coming down from the rooftops
Pamphlet boys on world crusade
The magician wins the people’s trust
We’ll see what it’s worth in a day

Into pleasure you’ll fall
If you swallow it whole
Into heaven you’ll fall
If you do what I say
Into pleasure you’ll fall
If you swallow it whole

The one thing you can’t deny
It’s strong and long
Easter rabbit, Road kill loss
High Llamas rodeo
The musician speaks, the children trust
We’ll see what it’s worth on the…

See-saw
Going up going downtown
The books from the playground
Headaches on the
See-saw
Going up going downtown
The books from the playground
Headaches on the
See-saw
If you do what I say, Do what I say
See-saw
Going up, going downtown
The books from the playground
Head aches on the see-saw
to live by the Sea-saw
Going up, going downtown
The books from the playground
Headaches on the see-saw
If you do what I say,
...Do what I say
(Yeah!)
Track Name: Who Pulls You Through?
who pulls you through ?

through the darkest hour alone
through the tall grass
in the daylight

and who has come to see the iron gate (from afar)?

" 'cause I pay my dues and waste my earnings"

who now pulls you through?
(pulls you through, Lon? )

Pay my dues and
waste my (y)earnings



[ In memory of Lon D'Uva ]
Track Name: Mennonite Lady
(verse 1: the teenage years)

Homemade crafts on market square
Saved from cameras and cars,
cosmetics and bars

As the windmill lost its breath
Death fell onto her hair
And broke her stare

But the man detests her ways
Who will alter her rooms?
And the woman obeys.
Who has governed this land,
Has woven by hand,
Tells you that you can't ?

Mennonite Lady, be sure
Pack up your bags and close the door
Tie loose from the pleasures so few
To walk on high heeled shoes

(verse 2: move to city)

Techno gods on swollen floors
Workers rushing through lights
through rotating doors

Crossing cables overhead
Death fell onto her hair
...my kingdom come (?)

But a man may take her home
Who will plow through the past?
And the woman okays.
Who has thickened the air,
Has coloured your hair,
Tells you it’s not fair ?

Mennonite Lady, be sure
Pack up your bags and close the door
Tie loose from the pleasures so new
To walk where you once grew

(outro: back to roots)

Mennonite Lady, beware
Gear up for a world that doesn’t care...

Mennonite Lady, be sure
Pack up your bags and close the door
Tie loose from the pleasures you knew
To walk on high heeled shoes
