Recipe 01:57
When you are trying to cook Sometimes you use a recipe book But theres danger in the air if there’s ingredients to spare your common sense has been overtook There’s a science to cooking that less of us know If you’re not experienced then stick to the show Leavening is tricky, so is substitution My recommendation is lets make a resolution Follow the recipe the first time that you do it, After you do that you can add things to it. Follow the recipe the first time that you do it After some practice there’s nothing to it! When you are trying to cook Sometimes you use a recipe book If you don’t have what you need Be sure to stop and read You’ll find a helpful chart if you look Bananas and Flax meal will substitute eggs Accurate measurements the recipe begs Timing is important, when mixing a solution My recommendation is lets make a resolution Follow the recipe the first time that you do it After you do that you can add things to it Follow the recipe the first time that you do it After some practice there’s nothing to it!

His Lips Are Sealed Hallelujah We had a show in Astoria I screamed and sang until I lost my voice But instead of choosing to save his throat So he could play the show in Seattle that night He sang these words, he sang these words,he sang these words and he wouldn’t shut up His lips are sealed hallelujah, His lips are sealed hallelujah His lips are sealed, his lips are sealed His lips are sealed hallelujah I learned early on in this relationship that I like quiet more than I like to admit, waking up slowly and reading and eating Breakfast is how I start the day And if as in some mocking tone He just won’t leave me alone Sometimes I wish he would go outside Or that I had some place to hide But I always, always have to say “Could you please just stop talking?” His lips are sealed hallelujah ,His lips are sealed hallelujah His lips are sealed, his lips are sealed His lips are sealed hallelujah But truth is I love to communicate I like to talk early and I like to talk late truth is like to communicate with you So sometimes I wake up in the morning and I won’t shut up – His lips are sealed hallelujah Sometimes I think I can’t say enough His lips are sealed hallelujah Truth is you inspire me, like a poet without an editor Sometimes I spill my words out on top of her Late at night when I’m asleep (the only time I don’t hear him peep) She smiles and she softly sings with joy His lips are sealed hallelujah, His lips are sealed hallelujah His lips are sealed, his lips are sealed His lips are sealed hallelujah

White Flag 03:47
White Flag (also appeared on Take It Easy) If it’s true that this would happen before even time began then I guess I’ll just surrender because I’m doing all I can yes in vain I’ve risen early just to stumble home to late ignoring all the factors that determine my fate and I’m gonna raise the white flag I’m gonna raise the black flag too I’m gonna raise the white flag and sing this song for you you see these words they are not weapons but these streets brew honesty and we’re all soldiers a journey yes were all pilgrims you and me so may all fear be forgotten as the memories fade away may the whole world join us in this song as we dance on yesterday

Last Call 02:00
This is the message that is preached We can be free if we confess our sins and choose to believe If we say we’ve not sinned we make him a liar And if his word does not live in us we’ll die in the fire And this is the last call This is the last song that you’ll hear This is the last time that I give away my fears And this is the message I have feared since I was born That one day I’d die in hell all innocence scorned And Jesus if you exist could you please help me out And for once in my life remove all of this doubt
