Track Name: Secret Squirrel
I've been hanging 'round here for days
Long enough to notice things are missin'
And that has raised my suspicion

I'm living with a secret squirrel
I've seen that bushy tail unfurl
I've caught him running in the halls
I've heard him sneaking through the walls

If I ever get my hands on you
I'm gonna make a pot of squirrel stew
I'm gonna make a pot of squirrel stew
If I ever get my hands on you
Track Name: Morningstar
Go to work in the morning with sleep in your eyes
You'd rather be sleeping in bed
Hop on the bus and those passersby
wonder if they are all dead
As dead as you are
It's all left undone 'til the morningstar

The day is half over, eat your cherry pie
Spill it, now your shirt's maroon
Everyone else seems to care how you look
What matters is you'll be home soon
You'll be home soon
It's all left undone 'til the crescent moon

Come home from work and squirrel it away
The portion you managed to earn
Keep it a secret or give it away
Sometimes it's never our turn
To learn who we are
It's all left undone 'til the morningstar
Track Name: Lover Squirrel
Beautiful day in the park
enjoying such a lovely breeze
people playing frisbee with their dogs
squirrels running down the trees

Grey squirrel takes a bite of our lunch then runs away to hide
he is sharing it all with another grey squirrel
soon she'll be his little squirrel bride

And he loves her (lover squirrel always gets the girl)
He'll never leave her (lover squirrel always gets the girl)
It's a squirrely squirrel world for the lover squirrel

Next day the park was cloudy and grey
the foggiest it can get
but two squirrels in love can stand in the rain
and somehow they don't get wet

There's no shame in lover's quarrels
they happen and they're no big deal
But these two squirrels were free from quarrels
As happy as two squirrels can feel

And he loves her (lover squirrel always gets the girl)
He'll never leave her (lover squirrel always gets the girl)
It's a squirrely squirrel world for the lover squirrel
Track Name: Breakheart Hill
How I long for the days when the days they were long
I pine for the days of yore
When all that we wanted wasn't mine, wasn't yours
And the less that we wanted, we had all the more

Breakheart Hill was the spot
We were trying to get caught
But we're caught up in the moment
We'll meet spirits there while squirrels stand by and care
For the ashes of all that we've burned

It could've been nice, making friends with the mice
Etching our home in the rubble
Staying out of the sun in the abandoned store
And the quicksand it bubbled as we watched from the shore

Stand on the stage and shout our your name
Shout it so no one can hear you
Breaking things, bending will, we could make our home still
But the rusty rails have nailed down my heart

Breakheart Hill was the spot
We were trying to get caught
But we're caught up in the moment
We'll meet spirits there while squirrels stand by and care
For the ashes of all that we've destroyed and burned
Track Name: Take It With You
"You can take it with you when you go," said No One Ever.
And No One seems to know!
So let go of the what ifs, the I mights and maybes
and let your feelings show

You wear your heart on your sleeve
Cause that's something that's free
You're working hard to believe
There's nothing that you need

But I know you, you're just like
a squirrel in a nut tree
You're gathering, gathering
busier than a bee

"You can take it with you when you go," said No One Ever.
And No One seems to know!
So let go of the what ifs, the I mights and maybes
and let your feelings show

Standing in line at your favourite store
And you've bought 4
4 of the very same thing that you need

Answer me this,
"Who can use more than one thing at a time?"
Getting rid of all you own is the opposite of crime
