Julu Road

It's the start of the day
Come down
To this part of town

Where the colors don't fade
Come down
It's a part of the very first sound
If the train slows down
Don't be sad
Don't wear a frown
If the train slows down
In this part of town

On the Champs-Élysées
Come down

To this part of town 

Where the colors don't fade
Come down
I'd be glad if I never came down
If the train slows down
Don't be sad
Don't wear a frown
If the train slows down
In this part of town



Colors great and lights so bold 

All creatures young and beings old
Bring your friends and all your gold 

And we shall meet on Julu Road



Colors great and lights so bold

All beings young and creatures old
Bring your friends and all your gold 

And we shall meet on Julu Road

Gratitude for the Shipper

At night I wander out in the rain.
And the deadbeat boys do the same.
When Laeititia’s in the house.
And you feel her love.
And your feet start tapping now.

Oh yeah. Uh uh.

Dressed up like a boy on Dashain.
Droppin’ beats on a passenger train.
And the girls are in the house.
If you feel their love.
Will you please start dancing now?

Oh my admiral.
Sailing to a future world.
I want to thank the ships and vessels that do carry me.
Through the endless tide.

Took a while to bend my ear at first.
Oh god I built a wall.
I built a wall and now its tumbling down.

Oh my admiral.
Sailing to a future world.
I want to thank the ships and vessels that do carry me. Through the endless tide.

Meet me at the room.
Where Thomas pours the drinks.
Meet me at the room.
While Manhattan sinks.
Track Name: Through the Valley
Through the Valley

No it's not that far
Through the valley
When it looks beautiful to you

Away from catastrophic conditions
In your weathered balloon

Gonna take my time
With this one
Gonna see it through

No it's not that far
Through the valley
When it looks beautiful to you

All you sorry thanks
In the courtyard
With the moon in full view

Well if I can't sweep
For this one
What can I do for you?
