Track Name: W.W.M.D. [Summer Solo]
if its alright
I'll stay the night with you
if you hold me tight
I'll never let you out of my sight
Track Name: Zion Rock [Summer Solo]
its over now
I never said
the time has come
I wished you said
a broken empty heart

so lets take a tramadol
medicine to cloud your head
then you'll tell me off

its over now
the fun we had
we never take the time to laugh
want to turn back home

and of all the many times we've had
we lack control
get farther out
and I just got scammed
Track Name: Beyond Belief [Summer Solo]
never believe an honest mans progress

this song was jammed on in HE as "Found Out"

Track Name: Girl U Want (Devo cover) [Summer Solo]
she sings from somewhere you can't see
she sits in the top of the greenest tree
she sends out an aroma of undefined love
It drips on down in a mist from above

she's just the girl, she's just the girl
girl you want
she's just the girl, she's just the girl
the girl you want

you hear her calling everywhere you turn
you know you're headed for the pleasure burn
but the words get stuck on the tip of your tongue
she's the real thing but you knew it all along

she's just the girl, she's just the girl
girl you want
she's just the girl, she's just the girl
the girl you want

look at you with your mouth watering
look at you with your mind spinning
why don't we just admit it's all over
she's just the girl you want
Track Name: Permanent Vacation (Aerosmith cover) [Summer Solo]
I got a letter from a friend the other morning
he says it's hot down by Montego Bay
I got the point and now I think it's finally dawning
yeah, yeah, I got to get away
I got to take myself a Permanent Vacation
the sky's the limit, but my plane won't fly
my nose is clean and Lord I don't need no sedation
yeah, yeah, and that's the reason why

I really need it, really, really need St. Tropez
I want a tan where the sun it never shines
I really need it, really, really need St. Tropez
you best believe it that I got to get away
Track Name: Intropol Outerpole [Summer Solo]
we laid them to waste
dropped a bomb or two
if its not this simple
we'll feel a pain
a little

its your turn to fight
its not my advice
you cant change your name
overnight

we laid them to waste
TV's on the station
moving in place
fixing our complexion

its your light to shine
its not my advice
you cant change your name
overnight

what you whisper is right
the life as deep as your pockets
shake an inch over something
maybe this wont just be for nothing

its your turn to fight
its not my advice
you cant change your name
overnight
laid them to waste
TV's on the station
moving in place
compromised position
laying here in place
dropped a bomb above us
if its not that simple
we'll feel a pain
a little
Track Name: Long Goodbyes (take 2) [Summer Solo]
hit so hard we bleed black
but I want to take it back
and share it with a holy stranger
it tears right down her spine
its coming back to save her
and its not supposed to be there
it broke unto her

wouldn't fly it as I see it
wouldn't buy but I'd try
seeing God as I see it
stick my arm out
let her behind

is it the water dumbing me down
I'm coming up on concrete now
I got a cough can't hardly breathe now
just tell her I said
so long
goodbye my love

a spot a mile away
I've got to put it somewhere
I talked to him the other evening
I tell you he was a peaceful fella
it fell off the tracks
it got caught in something
my head got struck with it
she goes

I wouldn't die as I see it
wouldn't leave if I tried
believe in God as I see it
stick around stay and hide

is it the water dumbing me down
coming up on concrete now
got a cough can't hardly breathe now
tell her I said
so long
goodbye my love
so long
goodbye my love
Track Name: Long Goodbyes (take 3) [Summer Solo]
plead so hard we bleed out
but if I want to take it back
and share it with a lonely stranger
chills right down my spine
not coming back a savior
we're not supposed to be there
the peace so broken

what if I'd never seen
what if I'd bought the lie
seeing as how we're not free
I think I'll just lay and die

is it the water dumbing me down
I'm coming up on concrete now
I got a cough can't hardly breathe now
just tell her I said
so long
goodbye my love

a spot a mile away
you got to put it somewhere
we talked it out the other evening
I tell you it was a peaceful feeling
it fell off the tracks
got caught in something
what my head got struck with
she knows

but what if I'd never seen
but what if I'd bought the lie
seeing as how we're not free
I think I'll just lay and die

is it the water dumbing me down
coming up on concrete now
got a cough can't hardly breathe now
tell her I said
so long
goodbye my love
so long
goodbye my love
Track Name: You're The Reason (Hank III cover) [Summer Solo]
originally by Hank Snow, this is more of a cover of Hank Williams III's version

I lay here at night
toss and I turn
longing you so how my heart yearns
honey you're the reason I can't sleep at night
just walking the floor
thinking of you
smoke cigarettes drink coffee too
honey you're the reason I don't sleep at night

I'm betting you're not losing sleep over me
but if I'm wrong don't fail to call
come over and keep me company

sometimes I go for a walk
and look at the moon
strum my guitar and sing an old tune
honey you're the reason I can't sleep at night

I'm betting you're not losing sleep over me
but if I'm wrong don't fail to call
come over and keep me company

sometimes I go for a walk
and look at the moon
I strum my guitar and sing out of tune
honey you're the reason I can't sleep at night
honey you're the reason I can't sleep at night
Track Name: Winter Blues [Summer Solo]
This became an HE song very briefly, perhaps the last.

I never had so much pain in my life
well I never felt so abused
but it's all winter blues
I never had to debate all the sides
I never had so to choose
but it's all winter blues

I try to think
I can't forget everything I think
of you
Track Name: Two [Summer Solo]
The second riff around 1:30 was jammed on with HE.
Track Name: Half A Photograph [VDM2k6]
Another one that went on to become an HE song.
Track Name: Discretion Grove (Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks cover) [VDM2k6]
by Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks

hate recreated
a revelation
uh, listen to me
I'll tell you I'm about to run
the ceilings are undone

specialized victories
for over-age whores
I felt up your feelings
and they left me no more time
to see what I want to find

let it go
the shots in closing
discretion grove
for it's time
to go there
yeah, there's time, there's time, there's time
to go there

celt alcoholic
feeling past blue
I'm tryin to get up
from sending all my selves to you
and in times I tilted truth

Major Alfonso
mind of DeGaulle
the ceremonial dead trees
told him all that he could do
and it's all we do to run, run, run...

(Chorus)

you're never gonna run aground until the sun is down
you are gonna hear the sound of a crazy ship
on an insane raid
just crash our wind on a manic bay
distract the wind on a manic bay
scratch the wind on a manic bay
