Track Name: Letters From Campus
I fell in love in the 70s
I fell apart when she flipped the record
It was a simpler time
She didn't make it complicated

And if she did
And if she did it didn't matter to me

She wore a flower in her hair
She drew a portrait of me on her blue jeans
She said I reminded her of someone
She said I made everything complicated

And if I did
And if I did it didn't matter to me

And I was always writing her letters from the campus: "How are you?"
And she was always writing me letters from the campus: "I'm fine."
Track Name: Something In The Way
Something in the way
Something sad and lonesome feeling so right
You've got bills to pay
You've got a reputation, I've got a question but I can't explain
The station doesn't work from this far away

And if you've got the money, well then you have everything
And if you've got the time, then so do I

Couldn't get it off my mind
Couldn't shake the feeling that I was feeling alright
Is there another way? Seeing you again was revealing of the person that I used to be
But a person like you is a sore sight to see

And if you've got the money, well then you have everything
And if you've got the time, then so do I
Track Name: Punks!
All across the day the punks make dinner for their friends
And punch the walls, and drink red wine from a glass

See them run and play, the punks babysit their little brothers
And they go to the park and get high on the swingsets
Track Name: Voyager
In the future where I live
Where the world's a thought we give
And o'er the moon the sights of men
On to Mars and back again
Tell me about my birthday when I was five

Should we fly to further things?
Touch the stones on Saturn's rings?
And dig down craters far below?
And see the Earth from the shores of Lo?
Tell me about my birthday when I was nine

Gone for eighteen thousand years
Unto a world my home appears
The Voyager so frail and worn
But to the world a child is born
And tell me about the world that we left behind
Tell me about the world that we left behind
Track Name: Something Else In The Way
Something in the way
Something sad and lonesome feeling so right
You've got bills to pay
You've got a reputation, I've got a question but I can't explain
The station doesn't work from this far away

And if you've got the money, well then you have everything
And if you've got the time, then so do I

Couldn't get it off my mind
Couldn't shake the feeling that I was feeling alright
Is there another way? Seeing you again for the very first time since way back when
I felt like a fish that forgot how to swim

And if you've got the money, well then you have everything
And if you've got the time, then so do I
