Track Name: Queen
Queen by The Owl Parliament

Calling to the empire, calling to the Queen,
Someone wake the army, someone's got the machine.

Calling to the captain, send your fastest fleet,
Someone's on the engine, we were all asleep,
Oh lord, have mercy on me…

Get your fists up for your children, and give it all you can.
Defend your fathers honor, protect your mother's hand,
Oh lord, have mercy on me...

Calling to the doctor, send word to the chief,
It might not be your problem, but it's all our disease,
Oh lord, have mercy on me…

Calling to the empire, calling to the Queen,
Someone wake the army, someone's got the machine.
Track Name: Whiskey & Jesus
I will wait at the station,
I will try and be patient,
filled up with honey and spices,
whiskey and jesus and all love’s devices.

I will wait here for you.
Oh, I will wait. I will wait here for you.

I will walk in the shadow
and I will wrestle the devil
I will hope to the promise
in good times and bad times, in winter and harvest

I will wait here for you.
Oh, I will wait. I will wait here for you.

I’m beggin’ please come home,
please won’t you come back home,
this bed is as cold as a stone,
I’m starting to feel all alone
oh, why won’t you pick up your phone?

Cause I am no good by myself,
It’s taking it’s toll on my health,

Please won’t you come back home.
Please come home, I need you home.
Please come home.

I will wait here for you,
I will wait til you come back again.
Track Name: Bones
Bones by The Owl Parliament

There is a great wind,
and it moves through the trees
and it blows in the valley
and it calls out to me.

There is a great wind,
I can feel it on my skin,
and it whispers in my ears,
and it calls deep within.

There is a ghost that guides me,
there is a spirit that binds me,
there is a fire that ignites me,
there is a love that invites me.

There is a great bird,
and it falls from the sky
and it loosens my tongue
and it gives me a sign.

There is a great fire,
burning desire,
Oh, will it take me higher?

There is a ghost that guides me,
there is a spirit that binds me,
there is a fire that ignites me,
there is a love that invites me.

Bones! I feel it in my bones…
Track Name: Mexican Army Band
Mexican Army Band by The Owl Parliament

Woke up this morning, with a trumpet in my hand,
I guess last night I joined the Mexican Army Band
Smoke started clearing, under the desert sky
Out walked the general and said ‘Son you saved our lives’.

We were outnumbered 10000 to 1.
Half of our Army had never shot a gun.

The sand was as hot, as the devil's fiery skin,
This was a battle that Tequila could never win,
We were surrounded on every side,
Our town was depleted and our well's had all run dry,
The rope had been hung for our execution,
but that when you came and joined our revolution.

Oh Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!
Give us freedom.

You rode out on a back of a mule,
we almost mistook you for a drunken, stupid fool.
You rode that donkey, right through the camp,
and when you blew that horn, you took our freedom back.

Oh Freedom! Freedom! Freedom!
Give us freedom.

Woke up this morning, with a trumpet in my hand,
now is it still useful in this Mexican army band?
Track Name: Lovely People
Lovely People by The Owl Parliament

He reads his paper in his favorite chair,
When the bus stops all the people want to stare,
You see, he never ever seems to mind,
He’s busy dipping coupons for his wife.

He orders take-out every other day,
from the chinese place on Broadway,
Two orders please and hold the rice
it’s bad for the figure and the wife.

All the Lovely People everywhere
All the Lovely People,
All the Lovely People everywhere.

HIs sister visits once a month
He still feels like it way too much
You see, they never got along
because her perfume is so strong.

He used to work for the paper mill,
but now he’s at home working on a still
he’s talks to Russia on the radio
so he’ll know just the right time to go.

All the Lovely People everywhere
All the Lovely People,
All the Lovely People everywhere.

All the Lovely People.
