Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Honor is like an island, rugged and without shores; we can never re-enter it once we are on the outside.
- Nicholas Boileau, French Literary Poet and Critic (1636-1711)

Listen:  Faded

You know
I never wanted that
You know
I never want to say those words
You know
I never wanted that
You know
I never say those words (x 2)
Got faded
Like a photo
Got faded
Like my blue jeans (x 2)
So long
I hope we’ll meet again
So long
I hope we’ll never meet again
So long
I hope we’ll meet again
So long
I hope we’ll never meet (x 2)
Got faded
Like a photo
Got faded
Like my blue jeans (x 2)
(break)
Got faded
Like a photo
Got faded
Like my blue jeans (x 4)

Listen:  Solo

I have a soul to share, I know it’s around somewhere
Always I’m feeling I’m all alone, I’m calling sweet Jesus, won’t you bring me home?
I have no time to spare, feel like I am almost there

Transform me once again, lift me up from all this sin
Hollow’s the feeling I only feel, so empty of a feeling that it doesn’t seem real
I have no time to waste, wipe this blank look off my face

The time has come, it’s time to go
The damage has been done, it’s time to go solo
I’m goin’ solo, you know that it’s true
Nothin’ you can say is going to change what I do
Gotta make a clean break, gotta lighten my load
Gotta get the hell out and get on that road (x2)

One more day in the books, one more day avoiding looks
When did we share our last loving glance, how long has it been since I took off your pants?
I have no urge it’s true, and there’s not a thing to do

I feel the mental strain, every move’s against the grain
Nothing to see here just move along, there’s nothing left here but the words to this song
Two hearts with diff’rent Gods, two peas in their separate pods

The time has come, it’s time to go
The damage has been done, it’s time to go solo
I’m goin’ solo, you know that it’s true
Nothin’ you can say is going to change what I do
Gotta make a clean break, gotta lighten my load
Gotta get the hell out and get on that road (x2)

(break)

The time has come, it’s time to go
The damage has been done, it’s time to go solo
I’m goin’ solo, you know that it’s true
Nothin’ you can say is going to change what I do
Gotta make a clean break, gotta lighten my load
Gotta get the hell out and get on that road (x2)

Listen:  Drive Me to Drink

When I met you I was not well, in my hell
And you opened up with your arms, and your charms
To be honest, I slipped right in, with my sin
And you took me just as I was, and I am

You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
I’m drivin’ my own car
You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
For me the drive’s not too far
You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
I’m drivin’ my own car
You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
For me the drive’s not too far

Sunday morning she’s sleeping in, once again
Monday morning it’s just the same, but for me
Every day is just like the rest, what a mess
And I think the blunt of the blame, is on me

You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
I’m drivin’ my own car
You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
For me the drive’s not too far
You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
I’m drivin’ my own car
You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
For me the drive’s not too far

(break)

You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
I’m drivin’ my own car
You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
For me the drive’s not too far
You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
I’m drivin’ my own car
You drive me to drink now baby, yeah
For me the drive’s not too far
For me the drive’s not too far
For me the drive’s not too far
For me the drive’s not too far
For me the drive’s not too far

Listen:  My Evil Twin

Wait now, what is this you say?
Oh boy, got a feeling it’s bad
Hey there, don’t you walk away
Come now, don’t you walk away mad

Those lies, I don’t want to hear
Falsehoods and the innuendo
White lies, they make me see red
Don’t trust what you heard that I said

It wasn’t me, it couldn’t be
It must have been my evil twin
You never know, he comes and goes
You think he’s gone and then he comes again

It wasn’t me, it couldn’t be
It must have been my evil twin
It wasn’t me no, it wasn’t me
You must be thinking of my evil twin

My evil twin, yeah . . . My evil twin (x2)

Knock, knock, at my door again,
Elders, and they’re wearing their grins
Unanounced, they walked for a mile
Standing there and they’ve still got their smiles

God bless, they’re sharing their faith
On a mission here to save some souls
Come on in, and thanks for your time
Have you met this evil twin of mine?

It wasn’t me . . .

My evil twin, yeah . . . My evil twin (x2)

Aw, he’s at it again
Oh no, he’s acting the fool, yeah
Good Lord, he’s flippin’ their lids
On no, they’re just a couple of kids now (x2)

It wasn’t me . . .

My evil twin, yeah . . . My evil twin (x4)

Listen:  That Girl of Mine

There was a little girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle
Of her forehead.
When she was good
She was very, very good,
But when she was bad
She was horrid.

That girl of mine is at it again
So self-content it must be sin
When will she learn? Will she ever learn?
That girl of mine is at it again

Get it out, get it out, get it out of your mouth (x 4)

That girl of mine (x 4)

That girl of mine is at it again
She is the girl with the little curl
When she is good, she is very good
When she is bad she’s lovely to see

Get it out, get it out, get it out of your mouth (x 4)

That girl of mine (x 4)

(guitar solo)

Get it out, get it out, get it out of your mouth (x 4)

That girl was mine, she once was mine
That girl was mine, she once was mine
That girl was mine . . .
