Mother mother ocean

Golden Gate Bridge

I have heard you call

Wanted to sail upon your waters

Since I was three feet tall

Cause youíve seen it all

Ghandi won his war.

Youíve seen it all

Iíve watched the men who rode you

They switched from sails to steam

Check out the starfish!

And in your belly you hold the treasures

Few have ever seen

Bay Bridge ~ Treasure Island

Most of them are dreams

Alcatraz ~ Golden Gate Bridge

Most of them are dreams

Well yes I am a pirate

A few hundred years to late

Old School Whaling Boat

The cannons donít thunder

Cabo Wabo

Thereís nothing to plunder

Iím an under 40 victim of fate

Arriving too late

Arriving too late

Iíve done a bit of smuggling

Well Iíve run my share of grass

I made enough money to buy Miami

But I pissed it away so fast

Itís never meant to last

* Itís never meant to last *

Well I have been drunk now for over two weeks

Iíve passed out and Iíve rallied and I sprung a few leaks

'Jimi Hendrix 1967' carved in stage he lit Pete Townshend's guitar on fire

But Iíve gotta stop wishing

Iíve gotta go fishing

Down to rock bottom again

With just a few friends

With just a few friends

With just a few friends

just a few friends

And the actual show at Virgin Megastore ~ we saw the sign in the window days before the show and planned on coming down.

If you bought a CD, you could line up for an autograph after the show.

People started showing up and filling the place like six hours before the show.

The kids and Jenn too. The kids brought their customized truck stop acoustic for signing if we got lucky.

And we did! This guy played it for a while and actually made it sound decent! The ukulele dude took off with him at one point and had a little jam session going on the floor.

Before the show ~ the entire crowd (1500?) sang happy b-day to Sunny after it was loudly announced by our new friend, Katie. What's so Maybe about Katie? -BNL

Thanks Katie! That was very cool for Sunny and bnf.

When jack finally came on, we ended up stuck behind a pole.

But kids are a little smarter than your average joe, or jack. Plus they get away with stuff adults just can't.

Such as in front of the barrier, front row in an overly packed house!

Perhaps they noticed Sunny's AC/DC hat?

Look at all those fancy clothes,
But these could keep us warm just like those.
And what about your soul? Is it cold?
Is it straight from the mold, and ready to be sold?

And cars and phones and diamond rings,
Bling, bling, because those are only removable things.
And what about your mind? Does it shine?
Are there things that concern you, more than your time?

Gone, the wind.
Gone, everything.
Gone, donít give a damn.
Gone, be the birds, when they donít wanna sing.
Gone, people, all awkward with their things,
Gone.

Look at you, out to make a deal.
You try to be appealing, but you lose your appeal.
And what about those shoes youíre in today?
Theyíll do no good, on the bridges you burnt along the way.

Are you willing to sell, anything?
Gone, with your head.
Leave your footprints,
And weíll shame them with our words.
Gone, people, all careful and consumed.

Gone, gone, gone, everything.
Gone, donít give a damn.
Gone, be the birds, when they donít wanna sing.
Gone, people, all awkward with their things, Gone.
