Track Name: Jet Pack
I’ve been spending lots of time alone in my garage
Freaking out my girlfriend
Like I’m some kind of scientist gone mad in my mirage
You soon will comprehend
Where my mind has been

Turn down the radio to hear the song that’s in my head
Tune into elevation leave the freeway freaks for dead
The air could use conditioning forget your Ford my friend
Just strap this on and hey let’s go, I know, “ that’s what she said”

chorus
I got a Jet Pack
I built it somehow
I got a Jet Pack
Prepare to be wowed
I got a Jet Pack, so get back Jack, the future is now!

Now I’m spending all my time high above the Earth
Freaking out my girlfriend
Sure she knows what time it is and how much I’ll be worth
Until then just pretend
That I’ll see her face again

It all looks so peaceful from up here above the gloom
Stratospheric lane changes I know I’ve got the room
At last I’ve risen up above my 4 wheel metal tomb
No engines, horns or sirens blare above my sonic boom

(chorus)

There’s just too much traffic
And I need to be high
If I gotta spend one more minute on that 405
I know I’ll just die

According to The Jetsons I should have a flying car
That might impress my girlfriend
But I’m not waiting around no more - I’m circling the stars
In their Mercedes Benz
See you on David Letterman, cuz…
Track Name: Give Away
Well, I wonder if you know that I’m sitting here thinking about you
And I know I said I’m sorry but I never mean a word I say
I know I won’t stay up all night again playing this card game
It’s just between this game and you I know I’ll never really walk away

chorus
I’m giving what I’ve got cuz it’s what I’ve got to give away
Never planned on learning what I think I should have known about anyway
I’m giving what I’ve got cuz it’s what I’ve got to give away
Ain’t planned on learning what I think I should have known about anyway

Well, it seems that everybody knows a bit about people leaving
And October’s getting colder but September was the other day
Do you think we’ll ever know what makes the heart and soul turn to such madness? You’re probably right - We should just stop talking tonight – it doesn’t matter anyway

(repeat chorus)

And too much time – and not enough
With all this time I feel I find its never enough

Heading down now on a bus bound for New England
Searching for my roots and the comfort of time and space
Maybe I’ll meet a pretty green eyed girl in Boston
Seeming so familiar I forget about your ugly face

Can’t you see the smile on my face?
Track Name: Jesus & The Baby Dinosaur
Back in Ancient Olden times, when all hope seemed quite lost
The Planet had to pay for crimes
Armageddon seemed to be the cost

War and Plagues and Sodomy, while Aliens from Space
Injected Scientology into the human race
Volcanoes lava splashing, Pterodactyls filled the skies
But One Man had the passion for a tiny Tyrannosaurus’s cries

Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur
Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur
Christ offered up redemption, but T-Rex just wants attention
Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur

Things got apocalyptic, and the robots got all spastic
Not meaning to be cryptic, but is she Jewish or a Catholic?
Jesus said that’s up to her, for she is her own soul
Look into Baby Dino’s eyes, he’s born to rock and roll

(To the sounds of) Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur
Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur
When Christ became a daddy, Mary Magdolin went batty
Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur

Brontosaurus had a thorn stuck in his hoof
So, Jesus turned the thorn into a crown
This even impressed Judas and the Saber Tooth
Cavemen started break-dancing, Triceratops got down

(Thank God for) Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur
Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur
They kept it out of the Bible, so the Apostles wouldn’t be liable
Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur
Let’s Rock!

God and Man and Giant Lizards all can get along
When wars and death and plagues break out, just sing this happy song

Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur
Jesus and the Baby Dinosaur
Christ offered up redemption, but T-Rex just wants attention
Jesus and the Baby Dino, Jesus and the Baby Dino,
J.C. and the Baby D-D-Dinosaur
Track Name: Jo
Hey there, Jo, are you the same girl you used to be?
Behind those eyes I’m certain I find uncertainty
Savory smile – the cold wind kicks in to kiss your teeth
Without looking down and confidently you leave your feet
And breathe a soft sigh of relief
Hey there, Jo, are you the same girl you used to be?

It crosses your mind sometimes
Silently you’re bleeding and screaming
“Oh my God, there’s no more time”

Well, now, now – the lessons learned out-did your school
You’ve been stepped on and put down
Yet you rebound and somehow keep your cool
What’s expected will always change
When you try to apply what you know – what do you know of the rules?
There’s ain’t no blueprint
It doesn’t matter if you have the tools
Jojo, just don’t act the fool

Yeah
It crosses your mind sometimes
Silently you’re bleeding and screaming
“Oh my God, there’s no more…”

Hey there, Jo, are you the same girl you used to be?
Without looking down and confidently you leave your feet
And breathe a soft sigh of relief
Hey there, Jo, are you the same girl you used to be?

Yeah
Open up your mind and you’ll find
Suddenly you’re breathing and seeing
All you’ve got is love
All you ever really need is love
All you’ve got is love and time
Track Name: Monkey Man
Something isn’t right in New Delhi tonight
Rumors persist about a creature in the park
Something bad is going down in the Indian town
There’s a Monkey Man loose in the dark

Nothing’s escaped from the New Delhi zoo
Police give no reason to fear or to doubt
A fortnight ago everything was fine
Now it’s sweltering hot and the power is out

chorus
There’s just no tellin’ any truth in the yellin’
The Monkey Man has come
It’s a terrifyin’ feeling when he drops from the ceilin’
The Monkey Man has come

Something isn’t right in New Delhi tonight
A Hindu Mystic was beaten in error
Only 4ft tall and covered with hair
So easily mistaken for the Simian terror

Better stay home with a baseball bat
Don’t go out walking when the sun goes down
Some folks say he turns into a cat
Has a metal hand and lives underground

(chorus)

Something isn’t right in New Delhi tonight
Maybe they are crazy, or maybe its true
Better not take any chances tonight
Or The Monkey Man might get you, too

Cuz The Monkey Man has come
The Monkey Man has come
The Monkey Man has come
Track Name: Utah
Utah
I have never been to Utah
But if I ever went to Utah
I guess that’d probably be all right

Utah
What do they do for fun in Utah?
Try to find a black Mormon in Utah
From what I hear, they’re mostly white

Well, people just don’t understand too much about that salty land
Not the land, I meant the lake
I guess I said “land” by mistake

Utah
I think they have basketball in Utah
So if I ever fall to Utah
I guess I’d probably be all right

Well, if I ever went there I’d probably just watch tv
Or write my name in the shifting sand
I could fill my car with gasoline
And drive real far
Maybe then I’d understand

There’s so much to see in Utah
You can hike & ski in Utah
Practice Polygamy in Utah
Everythings gonna be all right.

Utah
Be all that you can aspire in Utah
Rockin’ out with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in Utah
Everything’ll be all right
Everything’ll be all right
Every little thing gonna be all right
Everything’ll be all right
