Track Name: A Train
saw an ad on the a train today, "don't let the movie of your life go straight to video," kinda cliché but i like it, reminds me of the things i see in you.

how can i take ya seriously? so sincere that it's ironic. baby, take my gin n tonic. water down that sugary sweet personality.

keep yr eyes on me.
Track Name: Chippin' Away
chippin' away at the ice left meltin, in the kitchen in the freezer when ya brought it inside. i don't recall the rhyme or the reason, but i knew when ya told me it would be it alright. alright.

driftin away up n down the coast, how you left yr body to go become a ghost. i don't recall the rhyme or the reason, but you said it's bout the tides and the passing of season, alright!

oh, i know it's tough.

sifting away at the rocks and bones, the things that should rot in dusty catacombs. i don't recall the rhyme or the reason, you said it was an end to the sneaking and teasing.

well alright!
Track Name: Fuss
the weather ain't so good. rain's fallin, fog's filling up the places where i wish i stood. there's a book in my back left pocket and i'd read it but i ferget how.


ooooooooooooooooo


don't make such a fuss

the lightning flashes. but i blink my eyes and the moment passes and splashes a puddle at my feet. there's a cab on the corner and i'd take it if ya took it with me.

oooooooooooooooo

don't make such a fuss
Track Name: Song for Pete
(dis)

lookin out over brooklyn, and my knees are shot. middle age is here, but the renaissance is not.

16 going on 38, 20 pull off dead.

looking after yr dog, and he can't be left alone. he's as dumb as a log, and the telephone is cold

18 onto 45, 20 pull off dead.

you were back from alaska, and you were head of state. yeah, it's mostly symbolic butcha might control my fate.

80 onto 95, 20 pull off dead
Track Name: Over and Over
the pipes bang all night, and i can't write.

over and over and over again
and i can't win!!!!!

the man gets up to wash his face, another day has gone to waste.

over and over and over again
and he can't win

the repetition brings us down, till there's nothing but the sound.

over and over and over again
and we can't win!!!!!
Track Name: Here's to Hoping
not time fer a test drive, this here is the real deal. no crash test dummies in this here automobile. can stand on my own feet, which is more than you can say. you hoped that i'd forget, but i remember how you felt that day.

here's to hoping that we don't end up six feet under the ground (six feet down). i can't help but think it's headed that way, but here's to hoping that i'm wrong.

i'm shaking where i stand, my brain it don't have a plan. throw up a hail mary and hope fer the best cause i know i can.

here's to hoping that we don't end up six feet under the ground (six feet down). i can't help but think it's headed that way, but here's to hoping that i'm wrong.
Track Name: Meticulous
never what he worked for
always what he took
thought by counting backwards
that he'd be off the hook

standing in the corner
mr. toad lies cold

does he stirrrrrrrrrr?????????
is that question so absurd?????????????

he's so meticulous
so fucking clean

crossed ya heart, and i crossed your mind
how many times i done this?
fumbles in his pocket
thank god, i thought i'd lost this
always taking tokens, just to feed his brain.

would he dare??????
leave them out for one to take............

he's so meticulous
so fucking clean

================================

wipe it off, you don't need to wear that scar

================================

put him in a real real cage
