Track Name: Shining
Some people some places in and out of time
they've got that Shining
they don't need to say or do anything
they've just got that Shining

Holed up in a cabin in Ridgway, Colorado
just a you and me and Shining
from Tijuana down to New Orleans it's the same
long as you keep on Shining

From a hedge maze up in Amsterdam
way down to the Saint Francis Dam
took a ride up Mulholland Drive
walked away from Riget Hospital with more than my life...

Some people some places in and out of time
we got that Shining
we don't need need to say or do anything
we just got that Shining

Meet me at the Timberline Lodge
The Great Northern hotel's our next stop
then we'll take a ride along that long pipeline
make it to the Arctic Circle right about the right time...

Some people some places in and of our minds
we got that Shining
don't need to say or do anything
as long as ya keep on Shining

Pulled out of a corner in Northern Arizona
took a long strong whiff of that Shining
wild wild horses couldn't drag us away
we've got a long way to go but we keep on Shining

Shine on me once Shine on me twice
Shine Shine on me three times keep on Shining Paradise oh yeah
Keep Shining on the ones you love
Keep Shining on the heavens above
Keep Shining baby come on Shine on me
ya Shine on me
Track Name: Back No More
I once met a pretty reasonable man
and he seemed to have some kind of plan
so I took my family way down south to Guyana
back in '76
1976
like a 1776
ooooooo

Then things started gettin real weird
specially after that congressman and reporters disappeared
and he ordered us down to the killing grounds
back in Jonestown '78
1978
like a 1778
ooooooo

He said There's a place for you in a promised land
and I'll take you there if you take my hand
but the one thing you must understand's
that there ain't comin back no more
back no more
comin back no more
ooooooo
ain't comin back no more!

Once sat next to a guy on a bus
then he sawed my head clean off
but he whispered in my ear fore he made the final thrust
that there ain't comin back no more

I have a girlfriend and a car
I'm living the American dream
this tank of gas won't get us far
but for now we can do or be anything
we're going further than before
cashing in on all our possibilities
we won't be coming back anymore
now we've seen all that there is to see

Took an all-night Greyhound south
at every stop cyanide-foamin babies' mouths
as the TVs played back the Jonestown tapes
dated 1978
just like a 1778
just like in 2008
ooooooo
ain't comin back no more!

And if you want a reason
I'm the one who's giving one to you
to everything there is a season
now turn me on until I'm not confused

You know I licked a lot of plates in Memphis - woo!
Pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans
but I never saw the good side of the city
til I hitched a ride on the riverboat queen
Big Wheel keeps on turnin
Proud Mary keeps on Shining and burnin and
rollin, rollin
rollin on a river
you know you keep on rollin
and a-rollin
and a-rollin on a river
yow!
Track Name: It's About That Time
I remember who you are
but I've forgotten your name
does it matter what I call you
or does it have to be the same
name as ever before
though I've never felt like this before
at all

In the mornings when we wake up
before it's going to rain
can you tell me what is making
all the differences inside the same
ways that they were before
though we've never been like this before
at all

I look around to see and all I see is everything that's not
happening all around the world round the world
wait to unfurl see it unfurl
another age another daydream fading away
in a collective way
it's about that time

ooooooo
I forgot the name
does it matter what I call it
or does it have to be the same
name as ever before
though I've never felt like this before
at all

I look around to see and all I see is everything that's not
happening on the horizon line horizon line
wait for a sign to see a sign
another ship another shift in paradigms
as my vision resigns
it's about that time

ooooooo
I forgot the name...
It's been like this before
Track Name: In Another Body
Everything has changed
nothing is the same
I'm in another body
I feel unusual
just like I never have before
I'm in another body
on another floor
of the same apartment building
as before

Everything's the same
nothing ever changed
I'm in another body
I feel unusual
just like I always have before
I'm in another body
on another tour
of the same American cities
as before

Everything is changing
nothing is remaining
I'm in another body
I feel unusual
like no one ever has before
I'm in another body
up against the door
of the same 21st century
as before
Track Name: Dogman
Well if ya just don't like mustard then ya
must just not be much of a Dogman
naw if ya just don't like mustard then ya
must just not be much of a Dogman

Listen buster don't get flustered
yank some mustard from the cupboard
Dogman woo!

Well if f ya didn't want mustard on your bun
why didn't you just say so son
and if ya just don't like mustard then ya
must just not be much of a Dogman
nah if ya just don't like mustard then ya
must just not be much of a Dogman

If ya didn't want mustard on your plate
why didn't you just set me straight
and if ya just don't like mustard then ya
must just not be much of a Dogman
Dogman woo!

You're looking self-assured
with your hands in your back pockets
you've said yourself you've heard
of the places you can rock it you're a
Dogman a Dogman a Dogman a Dogman a Dog
man a Dogman a Dogman a Dogman a Dogman
a Dogman a Dogman a Dogman a Dogman a
Dogman! Dogman! Dogman! Dogman!

You're looking self-possessed
with your eyeballs in their sockets
I've heard that you've confessed
of the pictures in your lockets you're a
Dogman! Dogman! Dogman! Dogman!
Track Name: Bob Dylan's Death
Bob Dylan is going to die
and then it'll just be me
and you
Bob Dylan has had a long life
I wonder what he's thinkin right now
don't you?
Bob Dylan is going to die
and then it'll just be me
and you
and the ghost of Bob Dylan
wandering the beaches of Malibu
with a dog called Tag
a camera a towel and a Subaru
parked in the lot
I loved you a lot
I wondered what Bob Dylan thought
