“Zip Ribbon” Lyrics

Lucy and Ramona, cruisin’ through the jungles of L.A.

Cruisin’ through the jungles of L.A.
Cruisin’ through the jungles of L.A.
Cruisin’ through the jungles of L.A.
Cruisin’ through the jungles of L.A.
Cruisin’ through the jungles of L.A.
Cruisin’ through the jungles of L.A.

“Dynaflow” Lyrics

When I’m riding
In my Dynaflow
It’s exciting
In my Dynaflow
And I’m riding
Low and slow
In my
Dynaflow
Dynaflow
Such a long way to go

See the neon lights on the underside
Above the light is the only place to hide

When I’m riding
In my Dynaflow
It’s exciting
In my Dynaflow
And I’m riding
Low and slow
In my
Dynaflow
My Dynaflow

[break]

My
In my Dynaflow
In my Dynaflow
It’s exciting
Dynaflow
Let me go
In my
Dynaflow

Dynaflow
Low and slow
Dynaflow
Low and slow
Dynaflow
Low and slow

“Boomcar” Lyrics

Boom goes the car, goes the car, down the road it goes
Boom goes the car, down the road, down the road it goes
Boom goes the car, down the road, down the road it goes
Boom goes the car, down the road, goes the car, it goes
Boom goes the car, goes the car, down the road it goes
Boom, down the road

People behind me
They think I’m too slow
But I’m in the line
And I got nowhere to go

So I go boom down the road, goes the car, down the road
Down the road, down the road, goes the car, it goes
Boom down the road, goes the car, down the road it goes
Boom goes the car, down the road, goes the car, it goes
Boom goes the car, down the road, down the road it goes
Boom, down the road

People move in line
Feelin’ my lows
I’m right for the times
I got nowhere to go

So I go right at the light, and it’s left through the Dairy Queen
Ten thousand watts screamin’ through my machine
Slow as it goes, over the bumps in the parking lot
Mergin’ my way into a slot
Crank up the amps, turn bass through the ???
Cruisin’ my way to a new sonic threshold
Boom

[break]

People behind me, they say
“You’re too slow”
But I’m right in this line
I got nowhere to go

So I go boom, down the road, down the road I go
Boom, down the road, down the road, down the road it goes
Boom goes the car, down the road, down the road it goes
Boom, down the road

People in line
Feelin’ my lows
I’m right with these times
I got nowhere to go

So I go right at the light, and it’s left through the Dairy Queen
Ten thousand watts screamin’ through my machine
Slow as it goes, over bumps in the parking lot
Mergin’ my way into my perfect spot
Crank up the amp, turn the bass through the ???
Cruisin’ my way to a new sonic overload
Boom

[break]

Boom, down the road
I go boom, down the road
I go boom, down the road
I go boom, down the road

I go boom down the road, down the road, goes my car down the road
I go, down the road

“Rays” Lyrics

See all those rays
Shining from the inside out
See all those rays
Rays are what it’s all about

See those rays
Shining down upon the darkened page
See those rays
Shining out from each successive stage

Oh, I see rays
Shining through the where and when
See all the rays
Shining from the outside in

I see rays
Shining, moving in and out of phase
I see rays
Shining, fascinating rays for days
Oh, I see rays

Waiting for the light of mine
Wondering what I will find
Are they gonna leave me wandering in darkness?
Are they gonna leave me dancing on the mountain?

Oh, I see rays
Shining from the where and when
See all the rays
Shining from the outside in

I see rays
Shining, moving in and out of phase
I see rays
Shining, fascinating rays for days

Are they gonna, gonna leave me?
Are they gonna, gonna leave me?
Are they gonna, are they gonna leave me?
Are they gonna leave me dancing on the mountain?

[break]

See all those rays
Yeah, see all those rays
Rays, everywhere, rays
I see rays for days
Well, rays, rays, more rays
I see ah-all the rays
Yes, all the rays
I see all those rays
See, look at the rays

“There It Is” Lyrics

There, there it is up ahead
There, there it is like she said

Driving all night, looking for light
Straining to hear and see
Then as the sun hits
Where he knows it
Answers the question
When do we get there?

There it is up ahead
There, there it is, like she said

It’s in our sights, it’s in our hearts, within our reach
And now to the top of our mind
There up ahead, just like she said
The place where we’ll be
Leaving the dust
Journey behind

[break]

There, there it is up ahead
There it is, like she said

Driving all night, looking for light
Straining to hear and see
Looks like we’ve made it
Quite like we played it
Gone is the question
When do we get there?

’Cause we’re there
Yes, we’re there

There, there it is up ahead
There it is, like she said

There, there it is up ahead
There it is, like she said

There, there it is up ahead
There, there it is, like she said

There, there it is up ahead
There, there it is, like she said

“Follows the Heart” Lyrics

Last rays of sunlight
First rays of twilight
Set such a scene for the stage
There’s a dance to be done
Under the low setting sun
As night is gathering stars
Here at the end of the day
But there is something to see
The world may not be what it seems
As it dances on edges
Close to the ledges
Following the guidelines
The harrow of the timeline

Oh, what a feeling
A feeling that follows the heart
And I’m seeing from here
Every edge disappears
Existence is shifting and drifting to my low

Oh, what a feeling
A feeling that follows the heart
As it follows every ray
And every light of every night and day

[break]

Oh, what a feeling
A feeling that follows the heart
As it follows every ray
And every light of every night and day
As it follows every ray
And every light of every night and day
As it follows every ray
And every light of every night and day
As it follows every ray
And every light of every night and day
