    Down where your paint is cracking
    Look down you backstairs buddy
    Somebody's living there and
    He don't really feel the weather
    And he don't share your pleasures
    No he don't share your pleasures
    Look at his eyes
    Did you see his crazy eyes
    You're so surprised he don't run to catch your ash
    Everybody always wants to kiss your trash

    You can't help him
    Nobody can
    Now that he knows
    There's nothing to get
    Will you still place your bet
    On the neighborhood threat

    Somewhere a baby's bleeding
    Somewhere a mother's needing
    Outside a boy is lying
    But mostly he is crying
    And he just shouts in anger
    You'll find him interesting
    Look at his eyes
    Did you see his crazy eyes
    You're so surprised he doesn't build for you
    Everybody always wants to run with you

    Blue Jean

    Blue Jean-I just met me a girl named Blue Jean
    Blue Jean-she got a camouflaged face and no money
    Remember they always let you down when you need 'em
    Oh, Blue Jean-is heaven any sweeter than Blue Jean
    She got a police bike
    She got a turned up nose

    Sometimes I feel like
    (Oh, the whole human race)
    Jazzin' for Blue Jean
    (Oh, and when my Blue Jean's blue)
    Blue Jean can send me
    (Oh, somebody send me)
    Somebody send me
    (Oh, somebody send me)

    One day I'm gonna write a poem in a letter
    One day I'm gonna get that faculty together
    Remember that everybody has to wait in line
    Blue Jean-look out world you know I've got mine
    She got Latin roots
    She got everything

    Tumble And Twirl

    I've seen the city
    I took the next flight
    for Borneo
    They say it's pretty
    I like the tee shirts
    in Borneo
    Some wear Bob Marley
    Others in Playboy
    or Duvalier
    Make the last plane come
    Let me rise through the cloudy above
    with a book on Borneo

    Strangers come and go
    It's such a waste of time
    Problems far behind
    Another day
    But even in springtime
    It's a rich slice of life
    So send me a letter
    I'll reply with a postcard
    That dusky mulatto
    In nylons and tattoos
    Hot juice in coke bottles
    We dance in the sand
    Well, they twirl and they tumble

    Yes, they twirl and they tumble
    Well, I'll twirl and I'll tumble
    I've been to Leon's
    He's got nine daughters
    And a stereo
    They say that Leon
    Watches from the tree tops
    in Borneo
    When the road is mud
    Everything stops with a thud
    That's the way it goes down yonder in Borneo
    Far beneath his mansion
    There's an open drain
    Sending all the sewage down the hill
    But when the general shows movies
    No one hesitates
    To sneak from the jungle
    They laugh and they mumble
    Enjoying the show
    And that dusky mulatto

    Hot juice in coke bottles
    In Blue Jeans and tattoos
    Well, they twirl and they tumble
    Yes, they twirl and they tumble
    Well, I'll twirl and I'll tumble

    I like the free world
    They say it's pretty
    This time of year
    They tumble and twirl
    They tumble and twirl
    I'll tumble and twirl

    They twirl and they tumble
    They twirl and they tumble

    I like the free world
    I like the free world

    They say it's pretty

    This time of year
    This time of year

    I Keep Forgettin'

    I keep forgetting you don't love me no more
    I keep forgetting you don't want me no more
    I keep forgetting that you told me that you
    Didn't want me around any more
    But these stupid old feet
    Just head for your street
    Like they've done so many times before
    And this stuborn old fist
    On the end of my wrist
    Keeps a knocking on your front door

    I keep forgetting you don't love me no more
    I keep forgetting you don't want me no more
    I keep forgetting bout those heartbreaking nights
    And those heartbreaking things
    That you said
    Though I know in my heart
    We're drifting apart
    I can't believe that our love is dead
    Though it's plain as can be
    That you're finished with me
    I just can't get it through my head

    Dancing With The Big Boys

    Something's going on in society
    (Dancing with the big boys)
    You chew your fingers and stare at the floor
    (Dancing with the big boys)
    One wrong word and you're out of sync
    Talking bout a hands on policy
    (Big boys)
    Death to the trees
    (Dancing with the big boys)
    They weren't bad, they weren't brave
    Nothing is embarrassing
    (Dancing with the big boys)
    There are too many people, too much belief
    (Dancing with the big boys)
    Where there's trouble there's poetry
    (Dancing with the big boys)
    Your family is a football team
    (Big boys)
    This dot marks your location
    (Dancing with the big boys)
    Loneliness in a free society
    (Dancing with the big boys)
    (Big boys)
    This can be embarrassing
    (Big boys)
    (Dancing with the big boys)
    (Big boys)
    (Big boys)

    Bonus Tracks

    This Is Not America

    This is not America, sha la la la la

    A little piece of you
    The little peace in me
    Will die [This is not a miracle]
    For this is not America

    Blossom fails to bloom
    This season
    Promise not to stare
    Too long [This is not America]
    For this is not the miracle

    There was a time
    A storm that blew so pure
    For this could be the biggest sky
    And I could have
    The faintest idea

    [For this is not America, sha la la la la, sha la la la la, sha la la la la
    This is not america, no, this is not, sha la la la la]

    Snowman melting
    From the inside
    Falcon spirals
    To the ground [This could be the biggest sky]
    So bloody red
    Tomorrow's clouds

    A little piece of you
    The little piece in me
    Will die [This could be a miracle]
    For this is not America

    There was a time
    A wind that blew so young
    For this could be the biggest sky
    And I could have the faintest idea

    [For this is not America, sha la la la la, sha la la la la, sha la la la la
    This is not america, no, this is not, sha la la la
    This is not america, no, this is not
    This is not america, no, this is not, sha la la la]

    As The World Falls Down

    There's such a sad love
    Deep in your eyes, a kind of pale jewel
    Open and closed within your eyes
    I'll place the sky within your eyes

    There's such a fooled heart
    Beating so fast in search of new dreams
    A love that will last within your heart
    I'll place the moon within your heart

    Chorus:
    As the pain sweeps through
    Makes no sense for you
    Every thrill has gone
    Wasn't too much fun at all
    But I'll be there for you-oo-oo
    As the world falls down

    Falling
    (As the world) Falling down
    Falling in love

    I'll paint you mornings of gold
    I'll spin you Valentine evenings
    Though we're strangers till now
    We're choosing the path between the stars
    I'll leave my love between the stars

    (chorus)

    Falling
    (As the world) Falling down
    Falling
    As the world falls down
    Falling
    Falling
    Falling
    Falling in love
    As the world falls down
    (down) Falling
    Falling
    Falling
    Falling in love
    As the world falls down

    Falling
    Falling
    Falling

    Makes no sense at all
    Makes no sense to fall
    Falling
    As the world falls down
    Falling
    Falling
    Falling in love
    As the world falls down
    (down) Falling
    Falling
    Falling in love
    Falling in love (love)
    Falling in love
    Falling in love
    Falling in love

    Absolute Beginners

    I've nothing much to offer
    There's nothing much to take
    I'm an absolute beginner
    And I'm absolutely sane
    As long as we're together
    The rest can go to hell
    I absolutely love you
    But we're absolute beginners
    With eyes completely open
    But nervous all the same

    Chorus:
    If our love song
    Could fly over mountains
    Could laugh at the ocean/sail over heartaches second time
    Just like the films
    There's no reason
    To feel all the hard times
    To lay down the hard lines
    It's absolutely true

    Nothing much could happen
    Nothing we can't shake
    Oh we're absolute beginners
    With nothing much at stake
    As long as you're still smiling
    There's nothing more I need
    I absolutely love you
    But we're absolute beginners
    But if my love is your love
    We're certain to succeed
