Track Name: Pictures of a Parking Lot
The world hung cold in decaying stars
when she kissed you behind parked cars
Your black-eyed souls it had emptied into dreams

Grandpa died when you were five
But words come late or don't arrive
For a minute weren't you 17?

In debt to stitched men dressed like phonies
Grandpa died betting on the ponies
and nothing ever turns out like you thought

Like when planes had bombed the towers
you sat there for an aweing hour
I know-- pictures of a parking lot!

Sometimes you're sad and sometimes you're 20
Your mom works hard and you take her money
Shadows dance with strangers in the dark

Nothing changes when you're 10 but
You looked it up and it changed again
You didn't think the truth would leave a mark

And it's not love but we'll pretend
cause don't you know the truth can bend
but in her eyes you see that it hurts a lot
We'll pack it in a plastic bag
Just don't look inside it'll make you sad
I know-- pictures of a parking lot!

It's nothing like what they wanted for you
but none of that matters, they should have told you in school
Children eat the roses at the park

And now your locks get funny and they eat your keys
cause nobody likes you when you're 23
Doesn't this place just break your heart?

Your heroes are dead and your daddy's a lair
This city's not shinning, your city's on fire
I know-- pictures of a parking lot!
What were you hoping for?
Track Name: Have Fun Everyday
Moses can't make rent tomorrow
and she don't care
Adam says that Eve's got a broken dream
Let's go outside
Ruby says my hair’s too long
My dad said that I live life wrong
Shouldn't I trade my soul for an alarm and a leg?

We just have fun, have fun everyday
Have fun, have fun, jump in the bay
Have fun, have fun everyday

Jesus leaves for France tomorrow
and she don't care
Alice says she kissed him in a dream
Hey! That's not fair
Thomas says that she's no nun
but I love her like I love the sun
And not a person laughed when Daryl said that life was a joke

We just Have fun, have fun everyday
Have fun, have fun jump in the bay
Have fun, have fun everyday

Now take my life
Don't you be too long
cause she love you
I heard it in a song
Sorry she can't meet
cause she says that she's busy today

She'll meet tomorrow
I hope she's the one
she'll meet tomorrow
I hope she's the one
show me tomorrow
Track Name: Great Big Kiss
Here comes my guy walking down the street
Look how he walks with a dancing beat
Thick wavy black hair, just a little too long
On and on he's singing his song
when I see him in the street
My heart takes a leap and skips a beat
Gonna walk right up to him
Give him a great big kiss
Tell him that I love him
Tell him that I care
Tell him that I'll always be there


Big bulky sweaters to match his eyes
Dirty fingernails
Oh boy what a prize
Tight khaki pants, high button shoes
People always tell me
When I see him in the street
My heart takes a leap and skips a beat
Gonna walk right up to him
Give him a great big kiss
Tell him that I love him
Tell him that I care
Tell him that I'll always be there
Track Name: Duller than Death
Well, she met him at the candy store
like that's ever happened before

but he's already seeing this girl
he's already seeing this girl
he's already seeing this girl
he's already seeing this girl
(you see)

So, she's walking alone in the sand
listening to this demo of his band

So tell me what is it for?
(Tell me)
So who knows what a heart's for?
(not me)
Track Name: Love's a Hole with a Knife
Baby, what you doing to me?
Oh, I was sleeping
caught you sawing the tree
oh no

She called me up in the day
told me words I should say
But won't protect me now
Bill Nye, Nye, Nye,

She loves a hole with a knife
She loves me everyday girl
Love's a hole with a knife

Makes boys her filet
started back in college
I'm her's now
she told me don't forget it

She cut me up to the bone
she loves it when I'm alone
She goes here won't you sharpen this
Whoa hey hey hey hey

She loves a hole with a knife
She loves me every day girl
Love's a hole with a knife

One, two, go, five

oh don't wake me
don't wake me
leave me alone

Chuck Norris
Goodnight Irene
Track Name: Joan's Already Dead
I got tired of writing couplets
so I just wrote fuck it
like an iron brand no more abetting
It's so boring boring, boring boring

So I'll write something that doesn't
make a lick of sense:
Determined still to mistake a life for a living
nonsense makes the world go round
nonsense makes the world go round

Drip drop the rain won't stop
Joan's so sad she needs a mop
oh please! Lop off her head
God, Joan's already dead!
She's dead so dead

Dribbling disease of a man,
understand that it is make no sense
and no sense it taste
and feels it sense no
and sense begs no it
begets Joan's sense and it

Drip drop the rain won't stop
Joan's so sad she needs a mop
oh please lop off her head
God, Joan's already dead
She's dead so dead

Take me out to the planks, ma
I'm going home
to Joan Joan, Joan Joan
Track Name: Summer's Calling Sue
Summer calls sue

But she don't want to go
She's been burnt before
By the sun happy people
For too long

But i don't want to go
Without clothes
So i'm staying enclosed till next month

Someones calling sue
What will you do sue

We don't have to go
Down to the shore
We can talk on the boardwalk till dawn

No i'm staying home
It's still too warm
Snug in my seclusion for years
Track Name: Losers For Free
My life's an armada 1555
Add Jesus sorry, oh now
More more more dead than alive

Tolstoy-Antietam, Defenestration of Prague
I can tell you all about it but I still can't find a job

Great college degrees
Venereal disease
I'm down on my knees
Di-Diogenes

The printing press was invented in 1453
I can look up how but I don't know what's wrong down inside me

It's a phalanx swing and youre down
a raven's wing and youre down, you're down

Losers for free
We could have been losers for free
Losers for free
We should have been losers for free
Free we should have been free
Free we could have been free

So what's a broken promise?
I come from the USA
The children cry about it
and at night dreams just slip away

Frege-Adonis, postulation of Hobbs
Bismark- Athena, yeah right Boolean Logic of God

Great college degrees
Venereal disease
I'm down on my knees
Di-Diogenes

The printing press was invented in 1453
I can look up how but I don't know what's wrong down inside me

It's a phalanx swing and youre down
a raven's wing and youre down, you're down

Losers for free
We could have been losers for free
Losers for free
We should have been losers for free
Free we should have been free
Free we could have been free
Track Name: Save Me From My Twenties
What did i do so bad to give me the life i have
Tell me who did i harm to have things end up so wrong

Somebody save me from my twenties

Tell me who did i slight make it up with most my might
What sun did i set with what you did i'd take it all back

Somebody save me from my twenties

Take the hate and wrap it up with jealousy white irritate so you see it Meant that much to me
It was all i had
Take the hate and ponder the coddling you made the mistake and yet Still i'm following
It was all i had

Her black book's a county mile i wonder who's in style
Envied O' freedom possessed bound to this colossal test

Because I know too much
Because I feel too much
Because I love too much
Because i loath so much
Track Name: Everything For the Girl
Everyday I breath the same
I'm sleeping in rust but I'm always picking up the dust
everyday

Everything for the girl
(But she'll never)
Everything for the girl
(But you'll never)
Everything

Everyday I breed dismay
I'm sleeping in rust but I'm always picking up the dust
everyday

He hears the gavel fall
she hears the criminal call
he hears the gavel fall
I can hear them call

Everything for the girl
(But she'll never)
Everything for the girl
(But you'll never)
Everything

Everyday

Track Name: Rum Dumb Diddely Doo
Well, ups and downs, they got a saddle on you

You can't sit up cause you sat on their glue

Track Name: Ecstatic Tumescence
Friday night and I've got no date
Gonna go to Del Taco, gonna masticate
See my life's been simply Kafkaesque

Got no job and I got no phone
and I can't pay off my student loans
See my hearts been crushed with this hopelessness

Gruesome phallometry

Four AM and my hope's out late
The world says "no" but my heart says wait
I'm just wondering where all my friends went

Every time I just think of you
You hate me and I hate me too
I just want you to know I don't care 'bout descendants

Gruesome phallometry

Can't you see it in my face?
A generation lost in haste
Caught in the embrace of autophilia

Take away my conceptions
Amputate my proprioceptions
I'm just busy talking about my ge- ge- ge- ge-

"Oh my God, man have I been blue--
Nothing works tell me what to do"
I read that in the halls of your tenements

All my time is just lost alone
and some sad life is all I own
See my heart's just burst static tumescence

Gruesome phallometry

Jack Kerouac it down the ole highway
Just gonna Jack Kerouac it down the ole highway
Track Name: Bleed Me
Dead pan and the pick up lucks
Damned girls got my heads mixed up
Both stands in the ocean most-a everyday

Bad sun bores a hole like time
She's absinthe and she loots my mind
brought her my love but she just gave it away

And like some we just can't rhyme
And these feelings they're not yours they're mine
bought her my love but she just-a gave it away

Just don't bleed me like you do
Oh honey, don't bleed me like you do
B-baby, don't bleed me like you do
Bleed me bleed me bleed me

It's alright, It's okay, alright, okay, just don't give it away

Dead pan and the pick up lucks
Damned girls got my heads mixed up
Boats stands in the ocean most-a everyday
Track Name: Tomorrow's Just Another Day
Never after, we've been after
in the parking lots we'd haunt
Did we ever? I can't remember,
in some other life you'd want?
not so young anymore
no we're not so young anymore

Would you rather? What's the matter?
I've been up all night so talk
What's it matter? How's the weather?
oh our wicked hearts to worked, to worked to want
We're just--

Don't you be naive, it's not up my sleeves
All the precious words that you've held, that you've held so long
Don't you be naive, it's not stuffed up my sleeve
You're not gonna find it in a song, not one I've heard

We're just not that young anymore

At the shows off third and main
I caught you smiling in the rain
And though somethings don't ever change
They're still somehow just aren't the same

We're just not so young anymore

All our lives are walked away
All our dreams are walked away
All our love is walked away
Tomorrow's just another day

All our lives are walked away
All our dreams are walked away
When's it start and what's it pay?
Tomorrow's just another day
It's just a
It's just a
It's just a
It's just a
