about

mopehead California

"Psychedelic effects lend these admittedly mopey songs the lackadaisically sad quality of Spirit's "Nature's Way." Dreamy, dazed male vocals, prominent acoustic guitar and tie-dyed acoustic oddities. Try to imagine the Flaming Lips simply smoldering. ..." ... more

Track Name: Somewhere Out
I wanna go somewhere out
Out to the edge of what's real

I wanna fly up in the sky
Swim with dolphins in warm seas
Create music without the lies
Bring the big shots all down to size and
I wanna smile when I see folks around me
Spend a day without frowns
Sing a place with lots of crowds
Feel so free I'd wanna laugh out loud

I wanna go somewhere out
Out to the edge of what's real
And would you know on my way out
I got to thinkin' just how I feel
And there's a lot of folks besides me
Livin' out a lie and it's a shame
Growning old and bitter
Lookin' around for someone to blame

Baby, it's like livin' with an open wound
Baby, it's like livin' with an open wound
Baby, it's like livin' with an open wound
Baby, it's like livin' with an open wound
And it drains you
It drains you

I wanna go somewhere out
Where I can start to heal
I wanna go somewhere out
Out to the edge of what's real
I wanna go somewhere out
Let's not take the car
Wander the woods looks to see
Just who finds the evening star
And it drains you
It drains you
Track Name: Get Happy
Night falls quickly
Gotta grab the next feeling home
Hope you landed on a good one
Just fallen short of happiness

Get happy, yeah
Get happy

Push your way solidly
Down your pathways
Cut your corners
Now cut your loses

Get happy
Get happy, yeah
Get happy
Get happy

Life's no major chore
Get happy
C'mon get off it
Get happy, yeah
Track Name: He Goes To Parties
And he goes to parties with her on his hand
And she'd make that boy right into a man
Life must be tough when you're in demand

When we are together
I want you in leather
When we are together
I want you in leather

And he thinks a good thing is right in his hands
But we all know she's in demand
Life must be tough for you, man

When we are together
I want you in leather
When we are together
I want you in leather

And he goes to parties
And he goes to parties
And he goes to parties
Track Name: Flying East
I'd like to get on a plane come to see ya
Lots of neat things that I've got to bring ya
Get out of what this world is doing to me

Gotta get out of the East Bay
I almost lost my cool today
I'm fishing for reasons not drive my car over the edge
End it all

Lookin' forward to flying East
Find a way to reach my peace

I wanna spank the kitty
Tell my story
Look for pity
Gotta get down to the nitty gritty
When you coming West, man
WEST MAN

Lookin' forward to flying East
Find a way to reach my peace
Lookin' forward to flying East
Yeah, we'll have fun at least

And if you me I'll tell ya
I'm flyin' east
Gonna hang out at the Mansion
I'm flyin' east
I'm gonna sleep with a cat named Spim
I'm flyin' east
Spend some time with my friends
Cuz I'm flyin' east
Track Name: Phate
Wile your days away
While your life turns gray
It's there to haunt you
Try and get your senses in orders
Got to try and make it start

And I've never felt this way

Cross your fingers
Pray it's your phate
And wish for it

Your dream is not for everyone
My dreams are far from done
I wish for world prosperity
And yet I give little to anyone

And I've never felt this way

Give your dreams a chance
Give your life a moment to recover
Think of all the time you've spent in the fire

And I've never felt this way

Cross your fingers
Pray it's your phate
And wish for it

Throw caution into the wind and sail with me
Worlds we can see
Sailing the seas together

And I've never felt this way

Groove your life on down to the dock we're on if you're coming
We're got room board bring the Lord if you have him

And I have felt this way before

Cross your fingers
Pray it's your phate
And wish for it
Track Name: It Feels Like I'm Home
North Bay crusin' I'm feelin' right
East Bay crusin' by the end of the night
She waits up and she's out of sight
It feels like I'm home and it's all right

Fog bound drifter the ocean of luck
Float down the highway I never get stuck
On the East bound passage I make my way
To the home I know across the Bay
Rain Station tape and a stick of incense
Its my life now and it's startin' to make sense
Lights from the bridge glare my eyes
As the moon hangs bright in the nighttime sky

North Bay crusin' I'm feelin' right
East Bay crusin' by the end of the night
She waits up and she's out of sight
It feels like I'm home and it's all right

North Bay crusin' I'm feelin' right
East Bay crusin' by the end of the night
She waits up and she's out of sight
It feels like I'm home and it's all right

East shore freeway I'm sailing away
As I cruise full throttle through the East Bay
Cool breeze mixing with the sense of movin'
Caught in a vibe and there's no losin'
When I'm going to see her
I'm on my way home
When I'm on this road
I know I am on my way home

North Bay crusin' I'm feelin' right
East Bay crusin' by the end of the night
She waits up and she's out of sight
It feels like I'm home and it's all right

North Bay crusin' I'm feelin' right
East Bay crusin' by the end of the night
She waits up and she's out of sight
It feels like I'm home and it's all right

North Bay crusin' I'm feelin' right
East Bay crusin' by the end of the night
She waits up and she's out of sight
It feels like I'm home and it's all right
Track Name: Little
Just lay me down
Deep in the ground
Let me sleep for all eternity
Cast your flowers make your wish
Pry the bottle from my lips
My soul is leaving
Flying
Through the mist tonight

The howling winds can tell you something
And I know
I know so little
The howling winds carry me homeward
The moonlight in your eyes
Tells me little

You've laid me down and cast your flowers
I haunt the shadows
I'm with you
Forever

Baby
It started raining again
Baby
Goin' insane
Wondering
If I should fall asleep tonight
I'm crazy
So crazy
Falling on knees to my grave
I know
I know so little
My intentions may all be lost
I know
I know so little
As I slip away
I know
I know so little
My intentions may all be lost
I know
I know
I know
I know so little
Track Name: Older & Wiser
Follow your stars
Create your dreams
Things aren't as bad
As they may seem

The moon smiles down from midnight skies
We all grow old
Some grow wise

Find your way
Accept your fate
Got a lot to live for
Celebrate

The sun burns hot from the noontime sky
We all grow old
Some grow wise

When I get a little older
When I get a little wiser
Once I get a little quicker
I can touch the sky
When I get a little older
When I get a little wiser
Once I get a little quicker
I can touch the sky

Solve your crimes
Do you time

Heaven watches from on high
We all grow old
Some grow wise

When I get a little older
When I get a little wiser
Once I get a little quicker
I can touch the sky
When I get a little older
When I get a little wiser
Once I get a little quicker
I can touch the sky
Track Name: It's Always Good
Yeah
They sell something I can get for free
Pills for fear or for pain or for glee
I got your somethin' for a swinging mood
Yeah
I got somethin' and it's always good

It's always good
Like you wanted it to be
I'll swing that mood
Like it you know it should be

Yeah
They sell something I can get for free
Pills for fear or for pain or for glee
I got your somethin' for a swinging mood
Yeah
I got your somethin' and it's always good
