Track Name: Big Wheels
BIG WHEELS

Five weeks on the road I'm driving
the hypnotic trance of a straight line mile
in and out of every town in between
my heartache and your smile

I find myself driving
through the wind and through the rain
and everything is moving
to the rhythm and refrain

Hear the gears engaging
see the seasons changing
those big wheels rolling around
gonna take me back to you

One hundred miles east of Flagstaff Arizona
and I'm so far away from you
I know some people there gonna make me feel alright
even if its just for an hour or two

I find myself driving
through the wind and through the rain
and everything is moving
to the rhythm and refrain

Hear the gears engaging
see the seasons changing
those big wheels rolling around
gonna take me back to you

(solo)

I find myself driving
through the wind and through the rain
and everything is moving
to the rhythm and refrain

Hear the gears engaging
see the seasons changing
those big wheels rolling around
gonna take me back to you
Track Name: Reptile Store
REPTILE STORE

Won't you come down with me
we'll go to the reptile store
Gonna look at the lizards,
turtles, snakes, and bugs
Maybe we'll take a couple lizards home
maybe we'll leave those lizards alone
Won't you come down with me
we'll go to the reptile store

Well, I know a kid who
like to go to the reptile store
He said it happened to him
a time or two before
Five minutes after he walked through the door
he was crawlin' on his belly like a snake on the floor
Well, I know a kid who like to go to the reptile store

And there once were a couple of turtles
named Andy and Pete
When it came to playing checkers they say
they couldn't be beat
Maybe when we go to the store
we're gonna learn just a little bit more
about the legend of a couple of turtles
named Andy and Pete, oh yeah!

Ooh ooh,...

Now deep down in the swamps of Georgia
there's a snake in the tree
and that black racer snake will chase ya;
he's as mean as can be
So boy you'd better listen to me,
you see the snake in the tree you better let him be
Deep down in the swamps of Georgia there's a snake in the tree

Now the alligator is the biggest reptile around
Swimmin' in the swampy waters
are where they are found
I once knew a poodle who stood too close
I heard a splash, turned around, that poodle was toast!
I said the alligator is the biggest reptile around

So you better just look out!

So won't you come down with me
we'll go to the reptile store
we're gonna look at the lizards,
turtles, snakes and bugs
Maybe we'll take a couple lizards home
maybe we'll leave those lizards alone
Won't you come down with me
we'll go to the reptile store
Track Name: Spark Of Desire
SPARK OF DESIRE

The moon is high and shining on her face
her lover's lips are tasting gentle kisses
Water laps upon the shore the flowers in his hands
explore islands of their ancient wishes

Can you feel it touch your skin?

Could it be that you and I knew
one another in some distant lifetime?
When the land was open wide and yearning for the sun
to fill it's oceans with your sunshine

Can you feel it touch your heart?

We are the laughter and
we are the children
The fire is hot
in the Summer sun

A dry wind blowing
in the thirst of our touch
you are the spark of desire
and I can't get enough

(solo)

We are the laughter and
we are the children
The fire is hot
in the Summer sun

A dry wind blowing
in the thirst of our touch
you are the spark of desire
and I can't get enough

The moon is high and shining on her face
her lover's lips are tasting gentle kisses...
Track Name: Badass Bike
BADASS BIKE

First time, I couldn't believe my eyes
second time, I prayed to the skies
third time, when I rode with a friend
Straight away rollin' at a hundred and ten

Fourth time, now there's no turnin' back
I got the fever baby, yellow and black
Shiftin' gears in and out of the lines
Twist the throttle, open up the good times
I said,

Goddamn that's a badass bike
Goddamn
Goddamn that's a badass bike
Goddamn, Goddamn
That's a badass

One hundred sixty seven
horse power gonna send you to heaven
If you don't know what I'm talkin' about
You better listen boy you better watch out!

Another rider was runnin' with me
I passed him by doin' one-sixty-three
He caught up to me at the fillin' station
Now here's the gist of our conversation
he said,...

Goddamn that's a badass bike
Goddamn
Goddamn that's a badass bike
Goddamn, Goddamn
That's a badass

One hundred sixty seven
horse power gonna send you to heaven
If you don't know what I'm talkin' about
You better listen boy you better watch out!

Goddamn that's a badass bike
Goddamn
Goddamn that's a badass bike
Goddamn, Goddamn
That's a badass
Track Name: Leviathan Dreaming
LEVIATHAN DREAMING

For 16 years after the sky had fallen
I went out to sea
hunting whales with a harpoon gun
I fed my great country

I stood at that gun
held in cold suspension
watching, waiting, ready to fire
on the life that fills me with desire

Leviathan dreaming
until the end of time
I can hear you singing
in the shadows of my mind

Day after day on the open ocean
I'd rise for work before dawn
eyes trained on the icy water
so quickly they are gone

Leviathan dreaming
until the end of time
I can hear you singing
in the shadows of my mind

Leviathan dreaming
until the end of time
I can hear you singing
in the shadows of my mind

I live my life as an old man now
taking people out to see
Track Name: Vanilla Skies
VANILLA SKIES

The laughter filled your eyes
that sunlit morning when we realized
our love was gold it was meant to be
but then a tidal wave washed over me

And the wind is blowing across vanilla skies
I hear you whisper "open up your eyes"
And all I'm left with is this broken face
and circumstances that I can't erase
open up your eyes

I can't wake up from this endless dream
can you hear me in my silent scream?
I took a turn when I left your place
and now the winds of change are blowing
they're blowing in my face

And they're blowing across vanilla skies
I hear you whisper "open up your eyes"
and all I'm left with is this broken face
and circumstances that I can't erase
Open up your eyes...

Vanilla skies
Vanilla skies
Oooh,...

If I could I'd see you in the morning sun
there'd be no other 'cause darling you're the one
But I was careless with my romance
now I'm begging you Lord for a second chance

And the wind is blowing across vanilla skies
I hear you whisper "open up your eyes"
and all I'm left with is this broken face
and circumstances that I can't erase

And now I'm beggin' for a second chance
'cause I was careless with my romance

(solo)

Open up your eyes
Vanilla skies
Open up your eyes
