1. Circle Sky (Nesmith) - 3:33

Circle Sky
Telling lies
Raison d'etre
Idol threat

'Cause it looks like we made it once again
Yes, it looks like we made it once again

Color Sound
Run aground
Seagull sails
Holy Grail

'Cause it looks like we made it once again
Yes, it looks like we made it once again

It's a very extraordinary scene
To those who don't understand
But what you have seen you must believe
If you can, if you can

Hamilton
Smiling down
NRG
Falling free

'Cause it looks like we made it once again
Yes, it looks like we made it once again

It's a very extraordinary scene
To those who don't understand
But what you have seen you must believe
If you can, if you can

Circle Sky
Telling lies
Raison d'etre
Idol threat

2. Never Enough (Dolenz) - 2:58

Why is it never enough
No matter what I do?
I gave it all that I've got
And it's always too few

And now you're asking for more
Why do I hesitate?
'Cause I know in the end
That it's always too late
And not enough for you

I've often heard you say
You've got to seize the day
That when your life is gone,
Oh how it's gone for so long

But there are often times
When life is not so kind
And there are those around
Who need your feet on the ground

And it's not enough
It's never enough
I don't stand a chance
To fill your sweet lovin' cup
'Cause it's not enough
It's never enough
It's not enough for you

Oh, I long for all those years
Wasted alone with these endless tears

And it's not enough
It's never enough
I don't stand a chance
To fill your sweet lovin' cup

'Cause it's not enough
It's never enough

It's not enough for you
It's not enough
It's never enough
I don't stand a chance
To fill your sweet lovin' cup
'Cause it's not enough
It's never enough
It's not enough for you
For you


3. Oh, What a Night (Jones) - 3:12

Oh, what a night
But now I must forget you
But my heart won't let you
Out of my life

Oh, what a day
We walked around the city
You said now isn't it a pity
That I couldn't stay

But if I could life that night again
(and again)
It would be the same
And if I had the chance
(just one chance)
I'd stay another day

Oh, what a night
Your kisses were so tender
I always will remember
The promises we made

Oh, what a day
You smiled and it was magic
I thought it was tragic
I had to go away

But if I could live that night again
(and again)
It would be the same
And if I had the chance
(just one chance)
I'd stay another day
Oh, what a night

Oh what a night (oh yeah)
At last we're back together
I've been wondering whether
It would feel the same

Oh what a day (oh no)
When you said you had another
I guess I'll recover
To love again someday

But if I could live that night again
(and again)
It would be the same
And if I had the chance
I'd stay another (stay another) day
I'd stay another day


4. You and I (Chadwick/Jones) - 2:57

After all the spotlights and the flowers
After all the parties and goodbyes
There was something in the air
Something that we realized we would always share

And it was You and I
You and I

After all the music and the madness
After all the late night fantasies
We knew that we would make it through
There was little in our way
Nothing they could do

'Cause it was You and I and promises not broken
You and I and magic memories
After all was said and done they never understood
How we always made it. We knew we always would
'Cause it was You and I
You and I

Now it seems that we are still together
And all the others never made it through
Someday they'll learn our secret way
It isn't such a secret, it isn't hard to do

'Cause it's You and I and promises not broken
You and I and magic memories
After all was said and done they never understood
How we always made it. We knew we always would
'Cause it was You and I
You and I
You and I


5. Unlucky Stars (Dolenz) - 3:11

It breaks my heart to say "Goodbye"
I know that I deserve to cry
I know that time will see me through
But in this mean time
All I dream about is you

Unlucky stars are in my sky
My fortune teller, she saw me and cried
She said that I might have to wait
My lucky ship is lost
And comin' in too late

Unlucky stars
Unlucky stars
Venus and Mars
Are up in arms

If now it's time to let to
Give me some time to let you know
That I adored you till the end
I couldn't stand another day without a friend
I couldn't stand another day without a friend

6. Admiral Mike (Nesmith) - 3:23

You're selling ads you slimy toad
Don't smile at me and shake my hand
You're killing me
You're killing us
Because you're only
'only selling ads'

You're selling ads you stupid twit
The naked lunch is on your knife
The homicides are suicides
Because you're only
'only selling ads'

Your copy kills
Your copy smells
Realities are crushed beneath the ads your copy sells

Go back to hell you giddy fools
There is no truth you cannot maim
He killed himself
You killed him first
Because you're only
'only selling ads'

Your copy kills
Your copy smells
Realities are crushed beneath the ads your copy sells

You're selling ads you slimy toad
Don't smile at me and shake my hand
You're killing me
You're killing us
Because you're only
'only selling ads'

Because you're only 'only selling ads'
Because you're only 'only selling ads'
Because you're only 'only selling ads'


7. Dyin' of a Broken Heart (Dolenz) - 3:09

I told my Doctor something's wrong with me
She said gimme forty dollars and we'll look and see
Hop up on the table now we'll take some blood
Find out what you're dyin' of

She called me in the morning and she said now here're the facts
Well, it isn't your liver and it isn't your back
It's not your blood sugar or the Asian flu
That's not what killing you

You're dyin' of a broken heart
It really wasn't very smart
You lived through Nixon and a drug or two
Just to get your due
Dyin' of a broken heart

I called my analyst said I was a mess
He said gimme hundred dollars and we'll take a test
Lie down on the couch and tell me what you dream
It really isn't what it seems

You're dyin'
You're dyin' of a broken heart
And I'm cryin'
It really wasn't very smart
I lived through Nixon and a drug or two
Just to get your due
Dyin' of a broken heart

You're dyin'
You're dyin' of a broken heart
And I'm cryin'
It really wasn't very smart
I lived through Nixon and a drug or two
Just to get your due
Dyin' of a broken heart

You're dyin' of a broken heart
It really wasn't very smart
I lived through Nixon and a drug or two
Just to get your due
Dyin' of a broken heart
(get your due)
Dyin' of a broken heart
(get your due)
Dyin' of a broken heart
Dyin'
Dyin'
Dyin'

8. Regional Girl (Dolenz) - 3:16

She's a regional girl
Come to the big city
Give it a whirl
She thinks that she can make it
She thinks that she can take it
I think she's gonna end up makin' burgers in a basement
She's a regional girl

He's a regional guy
Come to the big city give it a try
He wants to be a mover
Yea, he wants to shake it up
I think he's gonna end up pourin' Pepsi in a cup
'Cause it's a regional lie
It's a regional lie

Mary Mary, Mississippi, Indiana Jones
Did you think that you could really make it on your own?
A singin' Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh
Eddie, Eddie, good and ready, now you got your chance
Try to keep the little buggers playin' with your pants
A singin' Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh

It's a regional lie
The grass is always green
And the coke is purified
You wanna hit the big time
Yea, you wanna strike it rich
I think you're gonna end up bakin' burgers for some bitch

Mary Mary, Mississippi, Indiana Jones
Did you think that you could really make it on your own?
A singin' Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh
Eddie, Eddie, good and ready, now you got your chance
Try to keep the little buggers playin' with your pants
A singin' Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh

It's a regional lie
The grass is always green
And the coke is purified
You wanna hit the big time
Yea, you wanna strike it rich
I think you're gonna end up bakin' burgers for some bitch
'Cause it's a regional lie
It's a regional lie


9. Run Away from Life (Tork) - 2:43

Let's run away from life together
Let me run away from life with you
Let's run away from life together
Leave behind the stormy weather
Let's find out what fantasy can do
Where we'll go to they can't touch us
Life is perfect nothing more to do
Nothing more than we'll be needin'
Life is paradise in Eden
Eatin' grapes and makin' love with you

Rest unchanging, no more fights
We won't ever even disagree
Let's go off into the heavens
In eternal happiness for free

Nothing's wrong, no strings attached
No reason to get crazy, never blue
Nothin' from your noisy neighbor,
Nothin's new, no trial, no labor
Cross the river Jordan, hallelue

Rest unchanging, no more fights
We won't ever even disagree
Let's go off into the heavens
In eternal happiness for free

10. I Believe You (Tork) - 3:41

I believe you (4x)

I believe you on a sunny day
I believe you chase the clouds away
I believe you

I believe you on a rainy night
I believe you put the moon to flight
I believe you

Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
I believe you

I believe your body
I believe your heart
I believe we're one
I believe we'll part
I believe you

I believe you warm
I believe you'll stay
I believe you cold
I believe you'll stray
I believe you

Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
I believe you

The engines of your love
Achieve escape velocity
I'm catapulted into space
for moments I am free
Then a trap door drops;
I'm plummeted
Into quicksands of despair
I'm consumed by flames of agony
Till you tell me that you care

Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
And I believe you
I believe you

Whoa oh oh
Whoa oh oh
I believe you
I believe you
What else can I do?
I believe you
I believe you
What else can I do?
What else can I do?

11. It's My Life (Dolenz) - 3:41

It's my life and I'm takin' over now
It's my life and it's time that I learned how
No excuses. For the truth is
It's my life now

I stumble and I fall
And I think about it all
Then I make amends
But it never ends
And I've just begun to wonder why
And I listen to the songs,
And I read all the words,
And I seem to remember something that I heard
Of a fire and a cave and shadows on the wall

It's my life and I'm takin' over now
It's my life and it's time that I learned how
No excuses. For the truth is
It's my life now

I wanna believe in the miracles
But they mix me up. Then they pass the cup
And I've just begun to look the other way
And I don't want to lean on the stars or on the dreams
On the fantasies or the deities
Don't I think it's time to lean on me?

It's my life and I'm takin' over now
It's my life and it's time that I learned how
No excuses. For the truth is
It's my life now

No excuses. For the truth is
It's my life now
