Track Name: Drugs
my mother told me not to
take drugs but ill do them with you
talkin science at night
in the warm bedroom light
at the northernmost tip of the moon

if youre goin to the mall
then take me
take me there
Track Name: Barefoot Gold
gambling machines at kmart
and a hopped up kid says the f word all night
like a baby farts

i can tell by the look on your face
that youre going to hell
with your barefoot gold
your nightgown and the twinkle in your eyes

this really is the better life
theres a chandelier and a buzz-in door
with stinky eyes and a buzzard lip
kanye west convenience store

i can tell where youre coming from
but the loops and the wings and the chicken fried potatos
set me up with a haggled rise
of the tips and the tip you gave the waitress a five
i can see where youre coming from
with your fucked up eggs an a plastic guitar
Track Name: Deckers Pond
when you wake up on this xmas eve
and you send emails like the blood is deep
from the heat of a bed you can turn the needs
hairy blankets are on and the springs are cheap
with a single tear for your mothers time
we will garnish the flowing drink with lime
and you send away for the magic wand
so well travel through time into deckers pond
Track Name: Two Summers
you cant pluck your eyebrows anymore
because youre beautiful
and it hurts you when you do that
and i cant fall in love with three married women at once
because theyre married and theres three of them
and im incompetent
and everythings so pretty and unnerving to me socially

two summers ago i fell in love with a half-chinese girl
and two summers before that
i fell in love with any girl that wanted to drink rum and cokes
and two summers before that
with all the exercise and internet
youd think id end up with something to show

but all ive got is this bullshit cookie cutter
and all youve got is that science book
with any reference to condoms cut out
and all the nipples covered in black tape
dont you think its about time you kissed her
youve been wasting your time all night

theres nothing but infrastructure
and these vision machines

and by that i mean
“cool shirt”
“i love you”
and the word “goddamn”

shouldve moved to get rid of myself
its the same as if you ever came
you will be brave you will be brave
Track Name: A Better Cable Company
buy more books
wake up early
exercise
stop smoking

lets build a car inside our living room
throw our cell phones in the hudson

and break our necks on every pile of ice
that steps our sitting down

find a better cable company
than these fuckers who keep letting us down

watch your son stay
watch your son stay
watch your son leak out into the real world
Track Name: Hybrid Moments
[google it]
Track Name: Revelation
on the mornin i went walkin
i got into some self-talkin
because i woke up with a voice inside of me

and into that conversation
we start in on revelation
and i decided something important about me

i said “hey you lied about lying!
you never lied to begin with!
what you said was true was false was true!”

and if i keep going
ill break into some pattern
and end up spitting math out at you

oh, how far are you gonna take it?
all the way

but what if theres still more above that?
well im moving anyway
Track Name: Not Late
i am the solid one
take it back
Track Name: Hurricane Katrina
now that the coffees on the pot
now that the key is in the lock
now that the coffees on the pot
now that the key is in the lock
now that im runnin down the stairs
with the legs you used to walk
now that im runnin down the stairs
with the legs you used to walk

you wonder why my paranoia
keeps me from paying more than a monthly bill
i say i wanna move to california
so ill keep sayin that i will

she was hurricane katrina
and i was george bush
she was hurricane katrina
and i was george bush
i ignored your destructive power
but at least i read some books
i ignored your destructive power
but at least i read some books

i wanna teach on top of a mountain
six packs deep before we top countin
buyin weed in east la
ill paint a house and thats where ill stay
i wanna move to california
replace all my paranoia
listening to advice they give
keep my friends close to where i live
Track Name: Gemini (Birthday Song)
[google it]
Track Name: The Last Time
[ask Dylan: http://www.myspace.com/russiantombstones]
Track Name: Wouldn't Stay
if i could leave right now you know i wouldnt stay
if i could leave right now you know i wouldnt stay
the law is trying to tell me that is jesus in your belly
but mary its not jesus in your belly
and the woman in nine
is some kind of referee
with her hands on her hips
she presses her guilt on me
when you gonna tell me that the sweater still smells like me?
when you gonna tell me that the sweater still smells like me?
if men are from mars then women are all fucking nuts
they mature quickly but we dont mature quickly
we try to be safe and we try to be honest we just fail
we just fail
we just fail
i can take all the leaving and mess with your head all night long
i can take all the leaving and mess with your head all night long
if i could leave right now you know i wouldn’t stay
if i could leave right now you know i wouldn’t stay
without insurance
youve got big ol teeth and a handkerchief
without insurance
hot as the top of a stove but letting anybody in the cracks
without insurance
calling unknown numbers and pretending to be a doctor
without insurance
if i had a hairless neck and a messenger bag
