Track Name: Come Out To Play
Come on Mary, come out to play.
Your son is rising, a smile on your face.
runnin, ridin, ring around your door
You see me, you see three, you see only what at costs

Come on home, shake your flat feet.
Shake your "holy roller", shake your apple from your tree.
Come on in, drink your caffeen.
Get the goo goo choo, yeah, get it here with me.

Come on Mary, come out to play.
Your son is shinin, puts a smile on your face.
Runnin, ridin, ring around your door.
You see me, you see three, you see only what it costs.

You got your shoe. You got your ball and chain.
You got your steely dealers, got me looking after you
Say bye bye buddy. Bye bye blue.
Sing "honey, honey, honey". Sing "I know she loves me too".

Come on Mary, come out and play.
Sun is up. Can't wipe that smile off your face
Runnin, ridin. screamin at your door.
You see me, you see tea, you scream "What you came here for?".

Said she'll be my one. Said she loves me on and on.
Sing it from the mouth of babes. help me sing this song.
She said good love, she said now "Good. Go."
Said "Load up your truck, get ready here we go"

Come on Mary, sing for your stew
Ante up, got a million things to do
runnin, sunnin, ringin at your door
You see me, make believe you can stop this killin frost
Track Name: Fourth of July (2009 remix)
Crazy Jane made her mother cry,
Melt down on the fourth of July
Slammed that door, didn't say goodbye
She was long gone on the fourth of July

She was a party child, it was party time. She had...
big plans for the fourth of July
She could steal your man, she could steal your life
no fool is safe on the fourth of July

Now, downtown they were gettin in line,
ice cold beer, take a slice of lime,
pig on a pole, corn in a pile
let your pepper cool, let your chicken fry

Momma sings, your baby cry
Papa sit back, he said "nighty night"
Too much sugar, the kids run wild
All hell broke loose on the fourth of july

Everybodys dancin in the street
Your brother had too much to eat
you know your cousin is the one to beat
but you can't be sure the victory is sweet

Catch a cold, catch a cough, catch a piece of behind
They yell, "Take it off!" on the fourth of July
She got your key, got your car, got your wink of an eye
Got some sweet talk on the fourth of July

She could drink she could drive, she could kick a bee hive
Test fate on the fourth of july
She cut left but she should'a cut right
Got a "need to know" on the fourth of July

You should have seen the look upon her face
Every day she'd be riding her daddy's case
He said, "I can't wait until you leave this place"
and then she was gone, she left without a trace

He stopped to see a marching band
Veteran only got one hand
For all these things he gives this land
What do we give back to this man

Things you gained, the things you lost
simple things at such a cost
these precious things that can't be bought
what it really means, you can't be taught

I just pray I can open up my eyes
in time to understand the lies
It's a holiday, you wonder why
You got your wake up call on the fourth of July
Track Name: Cool This Summer
It's hot, so hot
but still I want you near
I cannot feel the rain
but I hear it everywhere

Cool this summer
Cool like rain
Cool this summer
Cool like rain

Fallin, fallin, fallin down
Can you get it
Cool this, cool this, cool this town
Everybody's ready

Cool this summer
Cool like rain
Cool this summer
Cool like rain

Track Name: Safe and Sound
We were ready so we thought
we ought to give it a try.
Her mother says that its wrong
but she won't tell us why.

So we packed our stuff in a UHaul truck
We're on our way
Heading out on the freeway south
It's graduation day

Mary was unsure at the wheel
As she turned us around, we heard magic of sound
As we rode we were sure, no trace of a cure
As we rose we called out, we cried

We're safe, we're sound, we're callin all you off
We're makin it happen
Takin the big one
Umbilical breakdown...Safe and sound

Now there's sunshine that fills our days
We've got life and we've got freedom
Though the road is sometimes hard we know
We've got to pitch the load

There are mountains and rivers wide
There are birds fly-in the air
The world is here, we've our selves to fear
We've only just begun

We're safe, we're sound, we're callin all you off
We're makin it happen
Takin the big one
Umbilical breakdown...Safe and sound
Track Name: Oscar
Oscar your not half the man that we grew to love
You're smiling still but your eyes can't hide
what the years have made so rough

Oscar you didn't come around like you did back then
You turned them on then they turned you off
and I heard you broke your hand

Mechanization, new god of the nation
We've got machines now that make you obsolete (we got a machine)
Mechanization, new god of the nation
Production quotas are mounting daily while you rot in your seat

Oscar theres a place for you and you'll find it soon I know
You're trying still, no haven't died
man you made the good times so

Oscar, you didn't come around like you did back then
You turned us on and it turned me off
when I heard you broke your hand

Mechanization, new god of the nation
We've got machines now that make you obsolete (we got a machine)
Mechanization, new god of the nation
Production quotas are mounting daily while you rot in your seat
