Track Name: Bob Dylan's Death, pt. 2
Bob Dylan died
All of his children cried
They buried him down in a no-name town

Bob Dylan's dead
Don't let it get to your head
They laid him to rest and then headed back West

Bob Dylan sleeps
under the sycamore trees
It's been a long time since he woke up alive

Bob Dylan dreams
of all the innumerable things
he'd seen in his lives and all five of his wives

Bob Dylan dies
Track Name: The Hobo Life
Now I'm living the hobo life
Got no children and got no wife
God knows why I keep blowin my fife,
strummin my chords and makin the best of my time

Feels so good to be out of school
The nights are wild and the days are cool
Your legs are long and my heart's on full -
It filled up leading the hobo life again

Well everywhere I go is where I live
Where the food is good and the wine is sweet
and the people are all good-lookin

And the whole wide world is a
wide open door with a sign sayin, come on in boy,
get your fill and go back again

Feels so good to be back on the road again
Feels so good to be back on the boat again
Feels so good to be here with you
and back to leadin the hobo life again

Well everyone I meet is my new best friend
and all the pretty girls tend to smile and wave when they
see me coming their way

And the whole wide world is a
wide open road with a sun setting in the distance
that always leads me home to you

Yeah I'm still leading the hobo life
Got no money and got no strife
I keep on chuggin and a-blowin my fife,
strummin these here chords and makin the best of my
hobo times
Track Name: Death in Las Cruces
DEATH IN LAS CRUCES

It's New Year's Eve in Echo Park
and everyone's getting high inside a teepee
feeling each other up, and going down

My love is far away
and her phone is off and I've fallen prey
to the alcohol, drugs and orgies that surround me

Then I find myself in Las Cruces
sitting by the side of the road
holding a cardboard sign saying
Anything Helps - God Bless and I am waiting
for the Lord to take me home

It's New Year's Day above L.A.
and finally I'm awake beside a stranger,
feeling my head explode and getting sick

My love is far away
and her phone's still off and I have to say
that I think this might just be the worst year ever

Then I found myself in Las Cruces
lying by the side of the road
next to a cardboard sign saying
Anything Helps - God Bless and I'm still waiting
for the Lord to take me home

I don't know how I got here
I don't know where I'm from
I don't know where I'm going
and I sure don't know how come

I've taken to religion
It's all that I've got left
when I'm not high or wishing I was drowning
my regrets (in tears, and beers)

Soon I'm gonna die in Las Cruces
Bury me by the side of the road
Put up a cardboard sign saying
Nothing Ever Helped, But God Bless and I'm still waiting
for the Lord to take me home

Waiting for the Lord to take me home
Take me far away from Las Cruces
Fly me high on over your Organ Mountains
I know that's where you keep your Pearly Gates
Track Name: Further than Gone
FURTHER THAN GONE

When I am gone
When I am further than gone
When I am going
When I am moving on
Will you think of me
when you find I'm crossing the sea
or the river wide
to the unknown side
When I am further than gone...

While I am here
will you be holding me near
When I am coming
will it be your voice that I hear
When I arrive
will you push me in or let me dive
into the river wide
heading to the unknown side
When I am further than gone
When I am dead and gone
will you be thinking of me?

And when you hear my reflection
in the music that surrounds you
will you feel it in your skin
will you let the light come in
or will you feel it all around you?

It's hard to believe it's not magic
It's tragic to think that we don't know where we're going
What are you showing?

When I am gone
When I'm further than gone
When I am travelling
When I'm moving on
Will you think of me
when I'm crossing the sea
or the river wide
headed to the unknown side
When I am further than gone
When I am dead and gone
will you be thinking of me?

And when you hear my reflections
in the music that surround you
will you feel them in your skin
will you let the light come in
or will you feel it all around you?

It's hard to believe it's not magic
It's tragic to think that we don't know where we're going
What are you showing?
What are you showing?
What are you showing me?
Track Name: Stepped right into...
Stepped right into her gaping sex
all the colors in the world
couldn't compare to the darkness that I found there

I was ready to disappear
for the funeral of man
is a party that I don't wish to attend to

I looked around
but I didn't expect anything
I was the crown
that was hung from the ceiling long before I

stepped right into her gaping sex
and the misery unfurled
like a blanket that was lost but not forgotten

I was ready to disappear
and succumb to the demand
of becoming one with the subatomic particles

I look around
but I don't entertain anything
I am the clown
that was hung upside downward from the floor. I

stepped right into her gaping sex
and the whole world was one
with the universe that finds itself in my head

I was ready to disappear
for the unity of man
is a date left on the ground down by the river

I am around
but I don't claim to be anything
I am the gown
that was hung from the ceiling long before I

stepped right into her gaping sex
and the whole world collided with
and was quickly consumed by the light of the sun

I was ready to disappear
and succumb to the demand
of becoming one with the orphaned rogue planets

I look around
but I don't see the sun anymore
and I am the frown
that was hung upside downward from the floor. I

stepped right into her gaping sex
all the music in the world
couldn't compare to the silence that I found there

I was ready to disappear.
