Track Name: Everything Dies
Thought that we would always stay together Bought the whole notion love lasts forever But in real life forever is a disaster There’s no such thing as happy ever after… Cuz everything dies!

Yes it’s dark but that’s the way we’re heading Would you prefer a story with a different setting? Like a child you might go on pretending Heaven is real and love is never ending But everything dies!

Sometimes I’m still believing, like no one here is leaving Sometimes I wish that glory was more than just a story Sometimes I get a feeling, wish for mercy and some healing And some warmth in mid-December, but the ice helps me remember That everything Dies!

You might be on top with beauty and youth But give it some time your eyelids will droop The years will go by your puppies will die The pride of your life killed slowly by time.
Track Name: Don't Be a Dick
As a kid I liked the Beatles and then Styx and ELO Roller skated backwards to disco, ass kicked cuz my school book said Devo I learned of crosstown rivals when a car of massive jocks Asked what school I attended, and then pelted me with rocks I poured sugar in their gas tank The proud Mustang got so sick That day WE learned a lesson…
Don’t be a dick!

Studied history and religion in the schools where I was punched My funny hair deeply offended, a delinquent fought me for my lunch And all the books and bibles, social theory and explanation can be summed up in a minute: Aggression triggers escalation No one likes to be assaulted Getting poked with a burning stick Unless you got permission…
Don’t be a dick!

You can call it your special golden rule, or common consideration You can call it manners or etiquette or make a scientific explanation But it all boils down to kindness, or at least not being a meanie And if you don’t understand that you might be a giant weenie!
Don’t be a dick!

From the alleys of Barcelona to the New York City gutters From the Tokyo elevators to London bikes ridden by nutters I’ve rocked with millions of diverse people, big to small and fancy to plain Under skin and clothes and hardware more or less we’re all the same Please forgive me for this lecture, but 50 years taught me this trick If you want to make life better…
Track Name: Forever Road
We are defenders, a torch in our hands A flame that we touch to the stealers of lands We will never retreat, daily tyrants arise We are dissenters, creators of art Exposing regimes that tear families apart We will never know sleep, the machine never dies So we go down this forever road, Trying to build a better home We know how long we’ve got to go … forever

We are resisters and seekers of truth Trying to break loose from the myths of our youth We will never be free, the programming is strong We are protesters, protectors of hope Speak truth to the power then our necks in a rope Standing up to the kings, and their armies head on So we go down this forever road When I fall please take the load We know how long we’ve got to go… forever
