Track Name: I Still Dream of the '90s
80. I Still Dream of the '90s

I had a silver-tinged dream of about
twenty years back or so.
Summer of ninety one in the Alsace
lands was a good one you know.
i had a taste of crystal pepsi
down in the ohio.
fall of the USSR was the end of
the cold war long ago
but you didn't know? didn't you know?
there's a station playing a new song, honey
Chorus:
yeah, I still dream of the 90s in my flying car.
I still dream of the 90s in my flying car.
I still dream of the 90s in my flying car...

Earth can tremble and shake in the plains
But nobody's fault you know
I made a brand new mixtape drawn from
ashes of the radio.
Devil in a gulf war desert land is
an oil tycoon despot.
Devil in a stain blue dress is a headache
bigger than Kosovo
But didn't you know. You didn't know.
there's a station playing yer torch songs, honey
Yeah I still dream of the 90s in my flying car
I still dream of the 90s in my flying car
I still dream of the 90s in my flying car.
.
Timothy's slingin' the AK isn't
able to make it okay.
Price at the five and dime of
the regular's ninety-nine cents and change.
Japanese crushed them all but at least its
built in the USA.
end of the world is rushing fast on the
heels of the Y2K
but didn't you know, didn't you know
there's a station playing a new song, honey.
Chorus
yeah, I still dream of the 90s in my flying car.
I still dream of the 90s in my flying car.
I still dream of the 90s in my flying car...

I made a brand new mix tape built from
a story on the news today.
I played candle pin in the yard courte
sy of the NRA
Charles is a sad blue blood but you know he's
still got the DNA
Kids play ball in the gym these days
but not like Bulls on parade.
but didn't you know, didn't you know
all the stations are playing your torch song, honey.
Chorus:
yeah, I still dream of the 90s in my flying car.
I still dream of the 90s in my flying car.
I still dream of the 90s in my flying car...
Track Name: Just Friends
54. Just friends

You never could be on time and
I never was much of a lover and
I never could stand to lose an
argument at a party.
I never could let you win and
I never could let things go and
You never could suffer it when I
didn't meet you half-way.

Chorus:
So go it alone,
Suffer on, just a little bit longer,
need a little more time to work it out.
So go on ahead.
Suffer on, just a little bit longer,
need a little more time to let it go.

You never were stern enough, and
I always was much too uptight.
You never could understand why I
never stopped to smell the roses
I never could hold my tongue and
You never could hold your liquor and
We never could seem to work the
details out together.

Chorus:

SOLO. (Repeat last chorus)

I never could stay in ohio and
you never could leave your job and
we never could cut the distance
out of our relationship.
You never could express yourself, and
I never would hear you out
and we never would see things eye to eye
on issues of importance.

Chorus:
Track Name: To Be Young Again
85. To Be Young Again

1. I was dressed in a frayed t-shirt,
a hemp rope chain with a head shop bead
I met you at the neighborhood gas station
every day there in the summer.
You had a thing for the Gin Blossoms and
we listened to the radio then cause
this is how we do it in the olden days
this is how we do it in the midwest. 

Chorus:
did you know its a new generation? did you know its a new beginning?
did you know its the end of an era? did you know its a new direction?
You can be young if you start again! Its not hard if you do it right.
You can be young if you start again!

2. We were teenagers, just fifteen and
this is how we do it in the suburbs then,
we played games with the sidewalk cracks
we played games with the sidewalk cracks,
We were teenagers, just fifteen, and
you played a tape on your boom box then,
this is how we do it in the mid-nineties.
this is how we do it in the midwest.

Chorus (x1)
(solo) Chorus

3. We took a trip to the woods at night,
and i had the flashlights blazing bright
cause i had a fear of the animals then, and
you brought yer flashbulb camera.
We took a trip to the woods at night,
and i had the flashlights blazing bright.
did you know that they come out at night?
did you know that they come out at night?

Chorus (x1)

4. i was dressed in a frayed t-shirt and
i had a dream of a moving on.
how do you escape from the midwest
how do you escape from the midwest?
I was gone in a flash back then,
cause i had a dream of a moving on.
this is how you do it in the mid-nineties
this is how you do it in the midwest.

Chorus.
Track Name: That Old Time Religion
103. That Old Time Religion

1. The angel spoke, of John the Baptist
just this morning, yeah I see
Gabriel in lights and other fine
visions in the air.
Like the prophet said,need a little
Less conversation in my life.
A little more action satisfaction, yeah
a little more matter of fact

Chorus:
Gimme some of that Old time religion,
old religion's, good enough for me.
Need some of your sweet and mystic vision,
need some of your inspiration

Gimme some of that Old time religion,
old religion's, good enough for me.
Need some of your ancient mystic wisdom
Need some of your mystery

2. And i got a good friend, says he's
gonna blow up the state of new jersey,
cause he sees crimson luminous visions,
and he hears voices from the rafters.

Like the prophet said,
you gotta be bad, and you gotta be
cool you gotta be bold, you 
gotta be wise, and you gotta be tough
till the kingdom come,

chorus
Break - Chorus

3.
and i gotta good friend, got a broad with  
demons hot on her heels and she sings
spirits come to the end of days,
and the devils in all the details.

Like the prophet said, need a little bit of
sex and drugs, and rock and roll and
celebrate and praise like it's the year
nineteen ninety nine...

chorus:
