Track Name: Burma
In Burma
Down Burma road, I crawled
My fever would not fall
"a chance to see it all"

The jungle
I fell upon my knees
Was stricken with disease
Amongst the might trees

It seemed forever I was stricken with an illness
But forever's not that long
It seemed forever I'd be begging for forgiveness
Don't forget about it,
Someday laugh about it

The jungle
I'm blistered by the heat
Half dead but on my feet
I'll sweat these sins from me

In Burma
I'm half a world away
At home I couldn't stay
What would Buddha say?

It seemed forever I was stricken with an illness
But forever's not that long
It seemed forever I was begging for forgiveness
Don't forget about it,
Someday laugh about it

It seemed forever I was stricken with an illness
But forever's not that long
And would rather have been sick in southeast Asia
than to be here
than to be here safe at home
Track Name: Cloud
I drink from cold, clear water
I'll live my life like a holiday
But now I'm empty-handed
The cloud in my head won't go away

My heart is truly broken
the happiness found will dissipate
I learn to paint by numbers and
all of my pictures: shades of grey

Almost, almost always
I need somebody there
Just a friend to help me
see the picture clear
'cause it's breaking me down by measures
and that cloud in my head won't go away

If I die, I'll live forever
I take a step back, do it again
It keeps the planet turning
Walk, walk, walk unto no end

But now my hands are broken
My mind is numbing day by day
My sight is slowly fading
the cloud in my head won't go away

Almost, almost always
I need somebody there
Just a friend to help me
see the picture clear
'cause it's breaking me down by measures
and that cloud in my head won't go away

"Turn on the charm"
be big and brave it
"Turn on the charm"
learn to take it
"Turn on the charm"
smile and fake it
"Turn on the charm"
Someday you'll make that cloud go away
Track Name: Either You're Real
You give me something to
something to talk about
You are the one
the one that I squawk about

We're always on the line
You're always on the phone
Let's get it on right now
or leave it, the hell, alone

Either you're real
or you're just fantasy
Either you're real

Either you're real
or you're just fantasy
Either you're real

I'm steady most the time
You're always up and down
throw me a safety line
Feel like I'm gonna drown

'Cause I play the fool again
just like a stupid kid
let's get it on right now
or let's just be through with it

Either you're real
or you're just fantasy
Either you're real

Either you're real
or you're just fantasy
Either you're real

When it's good, it's good, it's evident
Most the time it seems you're heaven sent
And your words they heal, heal me like an old guitar

Now we just fuss and fight
it has become the norm
and when I speak my mind,
fly right into the storm

Why can't it just be like,
Like when we first began
Timing my time with you
down to the second hand

Either you're real
or you're just fantasy
Either you're real

Either you're real
or you're just fantasy
Either you're real
Track Name: Good Weather
I had a boner, I shown her
We are on cloud nine all the time

I had a friend who said to me,
"It should be free time all the time"

Love is a part of us, yet far from us
It is the big dream, the main theme

We could have wrote to you, showed to you
Just like a nightmare, you'll be scared

But as sure as the dawn breaks, this song makes
Makes the dark skies turn to blue

Feeling together, good weather
(apart from the pain)
Feeling together
(when the sun shines down)
Feeling together, good weather
(apart from the pain)
Feeling together
(when the sun shines down)

I'll come back to you, girl
I'll come back to you

I'll come back to you, girl
I'll come back to you

I'll come back
I'll come back
I'll come back
Track Name: Lou Reed
Summer is cold and wet
Life is a chore I can't deal with no more,
It is a job that must be met

Rain clouds, hanging low
Obscure the sky and they block the planes that fly
and won't let pleasure flow

Make me feel like
Lou Reed,
except the new breed
Just like Lou Reed
except the new breed

Always the second man
Always play a desperate hand
Never a place to turn
Ready to crash and burn

And I feel like an old disguise
on a face with the palest eyes
And I know what it's taking me
to keep life from breaking me

Just like
Lou Reed,
except the new breed
Just like
Lou Reed,
except the new breed

A stinging feeling just like breaking bones
waiting for her to pick up the phone
don't hang your hat, man, you're a rolling stone
and it feels, always and forever, you've been all alone

Just like
Lou Reed,
except the new breed
Just like
Lou Reed,
except the new breed
