Track Name: Versailles
(B, A, E, G, C)

Levitation with my meditation guide
Falling apples on the green lawns of Versailles
See my double in the corner of my eye
Hall of mirrors we are always passing by

In the gift shop with my meditation guide
Floating postcards of the green lawns of Versailles
Candy apples fill our messy little lives
Wearing plastic crowns and waving us goodbye
Track Name: Lady of the Butterflies
(D, C)

My lady of the butterflies
More lovely than I’ve realized
I watch her kick her legs to swim
I am off my medicine
I’m not a young man anymore
Free like smoke and feeling sure
I am where I’ve been before

My lady of the butterflies
Isn’t known to improvise
My teenage dreams of rock and roll
Are making her uncomfortable
I’m not a young man anymore
Free like smoke and feeling sure
I am where I’ve been before

The sky is sticking to me
I haven’t got a prayer
She is moving through me
Like the river moving there

Her little fingers fluttering
Make flowers out of everything
I watch her kick her legs to swim
I am off my medicine
Track Name: Brownstone
(E, D, C#m)

The brownstone revisionists have broken the ground
They want to send us to the world that we knew
They’re making sure the clocks turn back around
Before the era that was WWII

Redreaming the past
Without the negative feel
The same people who will tell you that we’re moving too fast
Will tell you evil is real

The Best Generation has returned from the war
You know their dicks have been too hard for too long
Every era better than the era before
Every era better than the era before

Redreaming the past
The pre-aquarium age
The same people who will tell you that we’re moving too fast
Will paddle out of the way

You can tell us
You’ll be sure
Who were when we were?
Track Name: Naomi
(B, E, C#m)

Naomi
You don’t owe me nothing now
I’ve been a snake in the grass
In the way of the plough
Like a pig at a trough
But you don’t know me now
You don’t know me now

Naomi
You don’t show your sacred cow
I don’t live in the past or in the now
Evening is arriving soon
Evening is arriving soon

Naomi
I thought you’d only slow me down
I shrugged you off so fast
I’m not laughing now

I acted like a rich a man’s son
I acted like Napoleon
I couldn’t keep my trousers on

I ignored you at the party
I left you in the rain
I have trashed my perfect body
I haven’t been the same
Since I said I didn’t love you
And I sat down on your bed
Despite what I will tell you
I would do it all again
