Track Name: Seymour
so syrup sweet it tasted bitter
dont act like hes the only one
now seymours with the babysitter
surveying all the damage done
well a lot of good all of that did
now theres a mark across my hand
my teeth they taste like stomach acid
at night they crumble into sand
please dont act like you dont know
its such a sin im such a sinner
to love someone who dont exist
now seymours face is looking thinner
i guess hes had enough of this
ah please dont act like you dont know!
Track Name: Collar
Another day, another collar
With dried crumbs to shave a dollar off
Sittin' on the corner of the the counter
'Cause most people don't look down there

And the street won't acknowledge the rain on my feet
'Til another wave turns up the heat
And this stamp of approval makes you think:
How could I leave?

Another weight upon your shoulders
Chips off, calls you a coward-man
Trailing thoughts of magnolias
And the rain wonders why it covers them

And the street won't acknowledge the rain on my feet
'Til another wave turns up the heat
And this stamp of approval makes you think:
How could I leave?

And the street won't acknowledge the rain on my feet
'Til another wave turns up the heat
And this stamp of approval makes you think:
How could I leave?
Track Name: No Talkin'
Time to get your car back outta the way
Several times this month, not including today
And they told me to come here
But that was several hours ago, it's not clear what you want so just take it from me oh yeah

And Dave's gone over the edge since the last time I saw him
Him and Leigh work at this place just outside of town
And they told me that it's different now--oh
Workin' for yourself, workin' for yourself

I'm the one that thinks it's different now
Since the hospital day when you broke down
I'm the one that thinks it's different now
Since the day is shit 'til six o'clock

And don't knock on the glass, just tap on the door
You can come in if you'll stay for a while
I got a few things to say to you
It's been three years comin', don't I always come through?

I'm the one that thinks it's different now
Since the hospital day when you broke down
I'm the one that thinks it's different now
Since the day is shit 'til six o'clock

You broke down, you broke down
Track Name: Calamine
sitting in straight backed chairs
but our backs were bent
the gnats got stuck in the ac vent
in the chinese restaurant we could smell the scent
of hangovers and mouthwash
of stories from the night before
of bleeding hearts that we ignored
of sweet and sour red
of handshake drugs and empty heads
and calamine
the door chime rings through the sweating air
when the breeze swept in i could smell your hair
and i picked a scab and i wondered where
all the dust comes from on the table
the dog days are upon us now
as we drift on through the cosmic cloud
i cant remember ever how
the sun was not so heavy
calamine
;-)
Track Name: Bleeding Heart
can we drive around
put your top down
all the places that i know are so much better when i go there with you
like a bathtub drunk (like the halfman thunk)
sippin too much blood (fuzz?)
it added fire to the fury when you found a place to start over new
you're gonna tear my bleeding heart a new one when you go
the money dont mean shit
only dicks get rich
still i could use a little something
to help me ease the pain of this itch (bitch?)
i got a holly roller
wearing the emperors robes
hes sitting on my shoulders, hes tapping on my bars with the key
you're gonna tear my teensy-tiny bleeding heart a new one when you go
you're gonna tear my bleeding heart!

***bridge---here we find the guitar solos, etc. first me, and then ooh, nice one john, and then:***
can we drive around...
you're gonna tear my bleeding heart!
Track Name: Six Six Church
Take a picture on your way to New York
Fix your car and stare at me
Leave alone the path you used to run a month ago
Skip a stone into the street
I wish I could finish everything I start
Stand close and you say to me: I need a line

I need some time apart
You crossed the line last night
I need some time apart
You crossed the line last night

I need some time apart
You crossed the line last night
I need some time apart
You crossed the line last night

I wish I could stick to all those things I say
Stand close and you say to me: I need a line

I need some time apart
You crossed the line last night
I need some time apart
You crossed the line last night

I need some time apart
You crossed the line last night
I need some time apart
You crossed the line last night
Track Name: Fireworks
walking second line
trumpets behind
a beat out of time
a dream past its prime
waking up in black
sweat down my back
i wish i could see
what everyone sees
we split up in the forest where there were no guarantees
and the horror might get you but ill be damned if it gets me
when the fireworks exploded i forgot all my chinese
he tells jokes that arent funny to me
no sympathy
for his motives
standing in the hall
talking so tall
these paper thing walls
do not conceal it
i never had a sister i never tried so hard
your brother came to visit and we had to push his car
the shadows crept up slow when i was sleeping in the yard
but it never really seemed like we had to push it far
walking second line trumpets behind a beat out of time a dream past its prime
Track Name: Tethered
We come with tethered hands
We came to make a stand, cause I

We come disheveled men
We came across the land, cause I

We come with tethered hands
We came to make a stand, cause I

We come disheveled men
We came across the land, cause I

Cause I need to know
(When will you keep away from me?)
