Track Name: Micronesia
Though he was an ancient man
Wrapped in mummy tape
When the bandage was unravelled
We saw a tropical landscape

We stepped into his torso
Made like nothing wasn't wrong
And heard the ringing of a gong

Great leaves of palm
Endless beach's sand
Iguanas in the bushes
Feeding from my hand
Coconut milk shake
Melting in the sun
Island paradise inside
A body aged three thousand and one

She lay in solitude
On a coast that wasn't there
She made an angel in the sand
And threw the sun back into the air

She needs a coral necklace
And a seaweed woven blanket
Several million nightlights
And a turtle in a basket

Great leaves of palm
Endless beach's sand
Iguanas in the bushes
Feeding from my hand
Coconut milk shake
Melting in the sun
Island paradise inside
A body aged three thousand and one

Line her up some sea gulls
Make everything just right
So all the maiden's wishes
Can be made true tonight
Track Name: Apples for Eyes
Apples for eyes
Drawn in
I'm lost in those
Apples for eyes

Apples for eyes
I should just walk away
That would be wise

Apples for eyes
Wide open now
like you're
full of surprise

Don't look away
Don't turn around
I just want to be sure

But don't look at me
it's too clear to see
That I am lost in your...

Apples for eyes
Drawn in
I'm lost in those
Apples for eyes
break off the stem
where another seed lies

Don't look away
Don't turn around
I just want to be sure

But don't look at me
it's too clear to see
That I ... am lost ... in your-

Apples for eyes
Drawn in
I'm lost in those
Apples for eyes
Track Name: Nirvana Token
I asked all of my friends on Facebook to give me an anagram for their name and I'd use the best and write a song with that title. The winner was my pal Tina Ann Kover.
