I Don't Know What Tom Waits Would Do

I don't know what Tom Waits would do

Can't say I really care

as for inner darkness

I can't find any there

A Real Mindblower

I used to fly in dreams a lot

not so much anymore

I'd be running and jumping up

then my feet would be off the floor

never got to tree top height

always flew much lower

just the fact that I could fly

was a real mindblower

Captain Jack

Captain Jack knows where it's at

gets things done matter of fact

always something up his sleeve

be careful what you believe

he does what needs to be done

and seems to have lots of fun

I wanna be on your crew

tell me what I need to do

I Don't Pluck Flowers

I seriously doubt

I'd dream about

plucking a flower in heaven

I don't pluck flowers anywhere

so why would I do it there

Open Road Trip

An unending open road trip would be great

I'd love to see all fifty states

stay as long as I want in each one

then when I get bored just move on

an RV could be my home

to take with me wherever I roam

a new adventure everyday

new places new friends on the way

The Great Escape

Just Let That One Be

I've never had a dream that I was someone else

though I often try to see where they're coming from

but to actually get inside their skin

that takes some real imagination

the type that I have never succumbed

guessing from afar is more than welcomed

that's just a little too close for comfort for me

so I'll just let that one be
