Limbo [HILV] 02:09
put me on an island with nothing to do with a pretty woman and my dog too no cops, no laws no work, no jobs no one's gonna drive me crazy put me on a river inside a canoe goin' down the water inside a water chute goin' forever to that place of wonder Skylines of azure some are going to heaven and some are going to hell most are going to limbo, but it's really hard to tell goin' forever to that place of wonder Skylines of azure put me on an island with nothing to do with a pretty woman and my dog too no cops, no laws no work, no jobs no one's gonna drive me crazy

I was walkin' down the street, walkin' down the street walkin' down the street my girl and me then what'ya know what'ya A man says give me your money I say heck no, heck no and we tried to run but he grabbed me I said you might bother others, but you won't bother me I'm like Mr. Miyagi I know Karate I turned off my switch, I turned off my switch I turned off my switch and that was it My hands started movin', My hands started movin' My hands started movin' in Karate chops I got him on the throat, I got him on the throat I got him on the throat, the sucka' began to choke But that's not it, that's not it He had back up in the corner there were guys here, there were guys there there were guys standing everywhere I called to my girl, I called to my girl I called to my girl to call the police She said "there's no time, no time for that besides I am the Kung Fu Cat" We said "You might bother others, but you won't bother us. We know Karate and we're 'bout to make a bust".

come on everybody listen to my story about this society and working for a living working for the company the boss made me angry and then finally I told it to shove it I said "goodbye" to my colleagues and then they wished me luck on my way out in the parking there were hippies looking to jump start their volkswagen hippie vans I said "that's fine under one condition you let me tag along in your travels" after a week of riding through the country wild and care free I wondered about income so I asked someone where we got our food from and our clothes and food and money the answered "our dad's trust fun" those these hippies were independently rich and wealthy I was not I rode home back in the city my stomach was empty without a degree from the university lookin' for more employment sittin' in the dug out with the other players then it came to my brain if you can't be the you gotta join them if you can't join them make your own grow your own

this Universe is a monopoly just like the people at the party there are other places we'd rather be but there's nowhere so we'll stay at home God is running a monopoly just like the people at the party there are other things we'd rather believe but our existence is in your hands and for that we thank You death is running a monopoly just like the people at the party there are other lives we'd rather lead you're putting us through things we do not remember agreeing to

A-Z [HILV] 04:10
there are things in this life that don't make sense to me like why is a "w" not just called double v but oh no, seriously we've got everything why can't we just be happy eternally I see a man today he's at the walmart buying plants I can tell by the way he stands and the robes that he wears that he's of the Buddhist nature I want to ask him "hey man, what do you know about Zen?" but before I can ask he's off to the Monastery in a cadillac then I see another man he asks "do you know Jesus Christ" I say 'no, but I'd like to try" he says "that's good he's the only way" and I say "ok, Let me get Baptized today we can do it in the Rio Grande you can give me as much love as you can" now I'm talking to a Harikrishna about a bodhisattva and Yoda the little green Buddha oh no seriously we all need to go tell the Deities we're all down here suffering

Stardust 03:03
stardust it's in my eyes where the people sleep and slumber down Central street stardust it's in my mind almost all the time never it stops I think it sleep walks stardust it's in my chest I need another heart so mine can rest on the coal miner's breath stardust it's in my soul never let me go

about

The second official Fast Heart Mart album. This was recorded in Albuquerque New Mexico in the spring of 2002. I paid the "record label" a pretty good chunk of money to make this record and somehow that money was reportedly embezzled for drugs and never seen by the studio musicians or producer. Well, that's rock and roll for you!

I feel like the performances and the songs are pretty good. Even the tones and the mixing are pretty good. However, I think it's the mastering that makes the sound quality of this record very lo-fi and unbearable at times . Please BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! I am not responsible for any blown speakers, broken glass or imploded ear drums caused by listening to this record.

My favorite track on here is "Remote Controller".

[HILV] = Hobos in Limbo Version. This track has been released in various incarnations and versions elsewhere on other albums etc..
