Track Name: Colleen Cactus
Words -
Them hairy beavers hairy beavers! They hate me.
They ate my #$@* trees.
They drank my vodka
And the gnomes, I'm all out, they've been drinkin' all my vodka
Checkin' the the beavers....I'm @#@$% sick of it
I can't believe, man
You know what, I like Unicorns.
Unicorns, I like 'em.
You know what, I've been hearin' those wolves in the background I think they ate 'em all.
I've been hurrrrrin' 'em in the distance
I don't know what to do. Let me know, man

Words and Music by Chris Zeitler

Driving down to the river side
See the rolling water glide
It's easy now
Just the boat and you

Dogs by our side
Paddles in hand
Feel much better
Living off the land
Let the water take you where it wants to

It beckons you to come, but it's not for everyone
Who can appreciate the ever changing
Relax enjoy outdoor recreating
Try to escape life's suffocating trials
Find time to

Hang with friends
Take a toke
Dip your feet in let them soak
It's cherished time to ease the mind

Pack it in, Live it out
'cause we know what it's all about
Just look around and watch the water flow

It beckons you to come, but it's not for everyone
Who can appreciate the ever changing
Relax enjoy outdoor recreating
Try to escape life's suffocating trials
Find time to

Anticipating the journey to come
Nothing here to escape from
The trip is never long enough
Track Name: Hide and Seeker's Grove
Hide and Seekers Grove

Hearing soft words trickle from below/ skittering sideways upide-down to and fro/ counting acorn hulls/ stepping on moist moss/ Hide & Seekers Grove/ creatures scurry from burrows where I tread/ the gnome children smile and nod their heads/ babbling brook so close/ relax a while and soak/ Hide & Seekers Grove/ bend the bough take a drink/ taste the earthen moisture/ that gathers before the dawn/ calling voices echo back to me/ stepping stones gather in the stream/ hiding from the gnomes. find a stricken soul/ hide and seekers grove/ the green slowly turns to shades of grey/ counting continues crickets play/ pleasure sleepless nights/ bats and owls in flight/ hide & seekers to go
