Uke 01:15
Thank you for the science dish the galaxy wish the jelly fat I've looked at that during fishing time I've tried the wine at supper fine I'll stop the chat from chasing mice and this and that who's getting trapped? She's at the door and asking for a compensationary summation of radical fun Run as fast as your dad but you can't eat his whole salary! Can you prescribe me your diary? I'll read your phonetical history of how your outfit will impact me Hey...what's your work schedule for the week?

Hands 03:42
I left my hands to see what they would do To embrace the world without the anchor they're attached to They slept on shorelines My hands came back to see what I would do To embrace the world with the arms they were attached to We slept on shorelines Wrapping strings around the fingers To see how purple purple can be

Brownfit Cheri Quite hilarious If she jumped up and down It would look like, Brownfit Cheri, is shoveling dirt from the ground See her frown when her hair tumbles down With a scissors cut on the front Does she look better now? Bring back 80's track She's so representative of all fashion 25 years ago Do you think Brownfit Cheri knows? Does her white trim make her look thin Or does it make the floor meet your chin?

If I could count the times that she had left behind the modern elements of tending land Then maybe I'd have come a three time thousandaire and we'd be settled down and I the man If I could count the tops she cut to paint them white I'd run out of numbers after one Two, and three, and four would all be left to die And friends would age and we'd run out of time If you only knew what I'm capable Then you'd only knew The broken eyes, and ears, I'm here she never tried to understand the condiment of tan We sit and soak and talk about like cone ball fans And they'd be moving on with their son... Is it Lee? Or Sam? I don't know? If you only knew what I'm capable of Then you'd only knew

He gets his papers from the local station He gets his news from the neighbor's pool Sinks down to the bottom just to read Looks at the horse and thinks 'I'm a strange, strange neighbor" He's estranged from the world, but does he know?

We are such shape up shoulders We are not where we belong Gravitating toward the big black boulder Seems like we're stick in the pound We return to jolly green Still not where we belong We are such shape up shoulders We are not where we belong We are back and getting older Feathered hats with decorated shoulders Gravitating toward the pound This frown face first in ground We are such shape up shoulders We are not where we belong Gravitating toward a big black boulder We're still stuck in the pound We are just, shape up shoulders

Harmony Love 03:40
The wind used to be against me The willows would swing away so naturally The gestures and responsible guesses that I couldn't read But now there's harmony The beauty of resting in an empty place Our words exploring what the mouth can't taste Oh, harmony love Not just casual love Happily exchanging time without misery Oh, harmony Love Painting pictures of our favorite place There's no need to leave Our eyes will have an escape Into harmony, not ordinary Shadows will never cast on this luxury Oh, harmony love

Piledheads at a pool party Show on time or show tardy Guests are naked Sharing stories about how they make their money Piledheads at a pool party

Island Man 02:20
Well she asked me to be cool But I know what isn't true Well she asked me to be cruel But I could never do that to you He is not your island man Then she asked me if I knew a way to make it stay Then she asked me if I knew if they would ever last He is not your island man "If it's good for you, it's not good enough for me" "Oh, no" He is not your island man
10.
Do, Do Alone 03:02
Everyones invited to the party shoppe Separate conversations once the party stops Is it really fun to know you when we've got no place to go? You end up sleeping alone inducing nightmares You end up sleeping alone once the party stops IT IS really fun to know when we've some place to go
11.
Organization Structure (structure your organization) They checked all the books When they washed their hands They've ignored the numbers And I hear the secret they keep from me
12.
Teach Her 01:27
I talk to teach her But she has good news She cares about me And that's all she can I already feel better She already feels better (too) Well let's feel better together?
13.
He's never ever coming back Don't go see him Don't believe him He's never coming back Don't go near him Don't even think of it He's never coming back He's never ever coming back Don't you cry now Pretend he's dead somehow He's never coming back I stopped trying Because he's lying He's never coming back But if you want to get into his head Just remember, you don't have to call And he'll come back to you He's coming back to you now

about

"13 tracks of spacy, bright psych music, with enough retro flair to make you question what year the record actually came out. If you’re into all things trippy, this is the album for you." - Breaking & Entering

"This is Ravi/Lola’s most cohesive, enjoyable, and well-rounded record to date. Childlike wonder and cracked psychedelia remain, but they’re now bolstered by a veteran live band and top-shelf production." - Milwaukee Record

"The album is nostalgic for a time that has since passed, taking cues from late Beatles and George Harrison. So if you’re a fan of the era, these guys are one of the few that are bringing it back with fervor." - April's Music Reviews
