We are all so proud of this album, and the past 2 years of friendship in Jack Nicholson. The band, not the dude, would like to thank Ananth for his hard work, the rest of the Dissonance boys for always being buds. To the guys in Atlas At Last, we love you. Thanks to Joe's Records, and the Record Exchange and Pyramid Atlantic for weathering the storm and staying awesome. Lastly, thanks to the people who have given us pot, and to the city of Washington, DC.

This one is for Miles, and all of the great adventures we hope to share with you in the future.

Track Name: Sad Day
It's a sad day, oh in America
When we can't trust no one, no one at all
A sad day, when we can't seem to see
A sad day, for you and for me

Oh you know
Know that it's good
Know that you should
Get a move on, yeah

Oh its a sad day, in this country of ours
We can't trust our brothers upholding the law
A sad day, when we can't seem to see
Whats right for you and for me

Oh you know
Know that it's good
Know that you should
Get a move on, yeah
Track Name: Golden Sun
I rise along with the golden sun, the toil of the day has just begun
The fields stretch out before my eyes, a workers hopes at once turn into cries

We did it wrong, all wrong
We did it wrong

Joyful memories of the past, lead us through our daily tasks
When the evening sun has died, we'll sit reflect on average lives

We did it wrong, all wrong
We did it wrong
Track Name: Apparatus Marijuanicus
From a state of procrastination
I perpend life, and it's implications
Our humble world, bullied by our vices
Every day is plagued by ethical crises
Our oppressors operating in disguises
Converting beings into commodities and prices
Securing our fate to be undone by our devices
I wake up and prepare the Apparatus Marijuanicus
Track Name: Smile
Been two years and a hell of a ride, we had Richmond and the Void the other night but...
It's been popping better than we planned
Looking back it all seems so strange, 'Mikey Time' was a fool and deranged
So we got Miles in the band, gimme the bridge now

Well we knew he had some time to kill, been cooking up fries at the Amsterdam grill
He took us climbing on the ridge
In a couple of months we got it all figured out, Miles rolled some bud and I got some stout now...
So we going to that bridge, Chain Bridge!

Smile, smile, when you say, that you're going away
No tears, when we look back on through the years
The memories don't change, they're always stuck within your brain
So smile, won't you a while
You are our good friend, and you're welcome back until the end
The best thing that you have, follow your own path
But please look back on us and smile

Miles is a funky ass fool and he has to take his funky ass back to school
I wonder if he's ever gonna learn...
Going out of town on a big ass train, the dude said he needed some change and...
A lot of Colorado weed to burn, give me the bridge!

I found heaven in the 707, flying up the 101
Climbing a mountain overlooking the bay, pack a couple 40's and jays, won't you Miles
East 299 to Willow we go, floating down the riverside
Up in the trees came a smoke through the breeze
Man, I was glad to be in Trinidad
Track Name: Deep Dish (Digiorno Reprise)
I go crazy all the time, cause I've got you all up on my mind
You got me on a high, acting kind of wild, wild

It's been a while since I
Took a drive, past the line yeah
I'll get there right at closing time

Can't understand, can't understand

It's been a long time since I
Had some music in my life, oh in my life
Look over each shelf once or twice

Can't understand, can't understand

I go crazy all the time, cause I've got you all up on my mind
You got me on a high, acting kind of wild, wild
Love is hard to find, but if all you do is cry, cry, cry
Think I want to try, just want to get to know you child
Track Name: Tie Fighter T-Shirt
I always looked up through the clouds
Watching the stars all move about
When we first passed through this place
A big old step, for all the human race

We'll find our way, today
So don't you want to, come outside and play
We got too much to do, today
So let's get out and on our way

We passed the south side of the sky
Saturn's moons really caught my eye
I'm getting ready, anxious to fly
We'll pass by Mars and Jupiter tonight

We'll find our way, today
So don't you want to, come outside and play
We got too much to do, today
So let's get out and on our way
