Track Name: henry's like a little dragon
head shoulders knees and toes
if i try hard i'll be able to float
my friends they all agree
the best kind of love you break between your teeth

for Kevin keeper of the prairie
Wesley Duke of vine and berry
Princess Doris of the forest
Wurzel Warren Mimi Emma
Kiki Jasmine Cinderella

your pupils bloom like a rose
they're blacker blacker than crows
they're UFOs
and if i took a double dose
i'd bend over backwards be a rainbow
and when the morning dragon disagrees
i've still got my friends to sing with me

and fall into the middle distance
gather round and talk in riddles
gaze upon the frozen Lagan
henry's like a little dragon

and the night's young and ripe to embrace
but we ain't goin' anyplace

without henry
without henry
without henry
without henry

your pupils bloom like a rose your pupils bloom like a rose your pupils bloom like a rose your pupils bloom like a rose

they're blacker blacker than crows

your pupils bloom like a rose
they're blacker blacker than crows

they're UFOs.
Track Name: them thar hills
there's no gold in them thar hills
there's no troll underneath that bridge
there's no road leading through that mist
them's just folk trying on what fits

there's no crone hiding in that ditch
there's no gnomes on them windowsills
there's no ghost counting up your sins
them's just folk learning to exist

there's no smoke coming over that ridge
there's no hope in them dollar bills
there's no clothes on them emperors
yes, them's just folk trying to tell you how to live

there's no gold in them thar hills
there's no troll underneath that bridge
there's no road leading through that mist]
them's just folk trying on what fits

there's no crone hiding in that ditch
there's no gnomes on them windowsills
there's no ghost counting up your sins
them's just folk learning to exist.
Track Name: livin' the dream, somewhat
these days are long wavy lines
nothin' but shadows all the time
and a face the sun don't like
i tried to outpace it tried to fight

but i'll have you don't mind if i do
you and your little dog too
i'm livin' the dream, somewhat, in the moment
head in the air and feet in the ocean

these days are gone out of sight
i waited too long got nothin' but time
i miss your face and all the others
every last shady motherfucker

if i had half of what you had
i'd never ever doubt myself
i'm livin' the dream, somewhat, in the moment
head in the air and feet in the ocean

at the end of the line there's a station
i saw you there patiently waitin'
sort of a deer drowned in the headlights
tryin' to raise some ancient child

these days are long from the longin'
some nights i mourn for them mornin's
waiting outside of liquor store shutters
watching the snow run into the gutters

i'll have you don't mind if i do
you and your little dog too
i'm livin' the dream, somewhat, in the moment
head in the air and feet in the ocean.
