Track Name: Cane
In the middle there's a picture of a fat girl
In the early of the morning
I used to drink so I would think that I'd forget her
But I remember
Don't you remember it well? Well I don't

Piece it together I'm falling short
Of remember bring it to me my little cane

And I've been running for the short ground cover
And I'm gonna take you down with me
I set up sail for some made up adventure
I can't remember
Don't you remember?

Let's make a bomb for this town and its mayor
I've been dropping everything so
And I've been feeling it hope you're feeling it
I can’t remember
Very well

Hold on I'm gripping
This dip tricky curve rings a bell
Let it swell
At the end of a smoke cry

You better drop me
A stick in the ground
Got a fat foot planted
Across your grain

My will is good
I think I'm dying but
I'm laughing too loud

It's rather swell that you put up with me
Thanks for letting me hang with you
Loud as cane keep it coming
I'm back again I said
Loudest cane in this place

Run run drop
Run run run don't say
Don't say it's easy
Don't say
Don't say it's done, yeah

Watch it through the air
My five fingers held up
Don't you care
I'm weightless, I'm shifting, I'm out of time
You better watch me
Before I sit in the ground
I got a fat foot planted
Across your grain

Now listen

My will is good
I think I'm dying boy
I'm way past the half mark line now boy
Loud as cane
Keep it coming boy
Loudest cane keep it coming
Coming
Good
Track Name: Hand Me Down
Drop dead you're gone again
Somebody blew you away
Momma's got a dream but a wretched man to pay
What's your name and who's your god?
It's clearly something else
Because late last night well your money was gone again

By the time you came
No one saw you anywhere
But I'll tell you
It was ugly and down right low

Hand me down shoes
Got me in deep
By a thousand laughing little feet
I'll tell you it was ugly and downright low
Save face your money's gone
Somebody blew you away
Bottle and dreams keeps the baby up at night
The only problem is
That your sister's been a thorn in your side
And someone told you to wait
Big tipper you're gone big dipper

By the side of grace
No one saw what you did to him
But I tell you it was ugly and downright low
And someone took your piece inside wrapped it up and hid
behind someone else's story
It's all the time we have we have to go

Hand me down shoes got me in deep
By a thousand laughing little feet
It's all the time we have we have to go

But baby's got dreams late at night
Baby's got dreams late at night night night
Oh no...
Oh no...

Drop dead you’re gone again
Drop dead you’re gone again
Somebody blew you away

And I can take it
And I can live

Hand me down shoes got me in deep
By a thousand laughing little feet
I tell you it was ugly and downright low
Track Name: Swim
Did you catch all the action
Feeling twice and shy and cool?
She brought you up and behind her
Her daddy never had a clue
That you
Did the things
That you do

And I don't mind
Feeling half top turned
Almost all of the time

Now listen
Now this is what they called a truce
Half dumb and naked

He was book read and well fed
And his momma tied his shoes
It's true the things that you do
She's a baby of the summer
With so much more than her mind to lose
Now it's gone

Please feel free to watch me watching you
Swimming peacefully
And I — I don't mind
Feeling half top turned almost all the time

What I say yeah
This is what they chose to do
I'm standing naked

By the time you washed out
By the time you lost your groove child
Nothing new child

I don't mind
I don't mind
Half topped turned
Most of the time
Alright
Track Name: Lester
This is luxury so I've been told
I don't listen much to experts anyway

Uh oh I'm trailing off despite the witty things you say
I'm really thinking of a lie to get me out of here
And you into bed

Tonight I'll die a hundred times
Take back one from ninety-nine

Ninety-eight amazing things you might have said
To change my mind, to keep me right and
Heaven only knows I feel a stroke or coma coming on
Maybe heaven is the end of talking with you

This intelligence is gauged by experts all the time
And I'm wondering just exactly what they'll find with you
Get up I tell myself
Just blend in with the crowd
It's too late I'm intrigued with the cadence
I find it hard but it's strangely captivating and now

Tonight I'll die a thousand times
Take back one from ninety-nine

Ninety-eight amazing things you might have said
To change my mind, to keep me right
Heaven only knows I feel a stroke or coma coming on
Maybe heaven won't be long
Be long

Break it down fast
Make yourself quick
Let's get to the part where you don't speak

I'm sorry but your mouth is a gun
And properly set
One could hardly deny
The cleverness in your trap
The cleverness in those eyes
Now you're going to die at the hands of a dirty bomb
I'll say you're on your way

If you swim with a tiger
Let the dorsal mean the end
There's 1,100 honey and I know
You devoured them

You better start swimming
In in in in in

Why she still keep coming around
Yeah no

Ninety-eight amazing things you might have said
To change my mind, to keep me right
Heaven only knows I feel a stroke so come and take me on
Take me home

I'm already kissing the sun today
I'm already kissing the sun today
I'm already kissing already kissing
Today
Today
Track Name: Car Crash
You're a car crash, uh oh
But you saved nothing
Turn around, now
It seems

You don't care, yeah oh no
You're the light child
For a while

But tonight girl oh
Leave it on your side
Even though

Don't hold back
Your right time
Is all you can see
Easy step yeah watch your mark
Now

Here we go so low
You're the light child
For tonight

Watch your problems all disappear
Tonight
Even though
I'm gone

And you said someone brought you back to life
And you said someone turned your life around and then...

You're the first thing that I see
You're the last thing only mind
I can prove it
I can show you how to live son

Watch your progress
You're a little short of love
I can give it
I can show it to you now

And you saved me
When you crossed that line
And you gave me
One more chance
One more chance
Track Name: Tripper
It's only the daylight comes
When you want to sleep in
Somebody broke your back
And you went back to living
On the living room floor
I swear

You found a roll full of nickels, wow
That you can take into town
And trade in the daylight
So you don't have to fit in
I get it

I want everyone
You want someone else
Sometimes it builds on up
Sometimes it drags you down

Somebody spoke
But god damn the words seem way out of line
Forget what's yours and mine
There's a kid looking up
At you once and then

Well my old man never got to speak his mind and now
We're drawing a fine favor babe

I want everyone
Sometimes it builds you up
Sometimes
Sometimes now

And you can guarantee it
But we're watching it fall apart and then
It's easy come
And we watch you go
But we'd hope that you'd stay
It's only the daylight

I want everyone
You want someone else
Sometimes it builds you up
Sometimes it drags
You down
Track Name: Hairless
What you think you know
Is fact from fiction
You're playing hard with
A hard, hard man

I said pick it up girl
Said pick it up now
I'll leave town
With someone else

I mean it
I'm leaving
Your country has got no son
This story
This fiction
This story
It has been done, yeah!

Pretty fingers lie in pretty pieces
You're waking up
On the short end of a long bed
And
It's about time
It's about mine
For once and nothing else

Any valentine treat me like you do
Sometimes overcome, overcome, over

And drop right down
To the heart of it
Say everything

Dropped right down to the heart is all
You're so lucky

You kiss your baby with a mouth like that?
You kiss my baby with a mouth like that

Yeah drop right down
To the better part of everything
Drop right down
To the better part
And nothing more
Track Name: Fence
I'll dig a fence
Don't take offense
Heard you were buying back the farm

Now everybody knows
Just what they know
I'll wait to hear it for myself

Because I
I can't be wrong
Let's set fire to the places
That you come from
Go

Pay the man
For heaven’s sake
Don't forget to fill your father’s car

Now everybody else
Has someone else
Means something different for everyone

And I will make you strong
Yes I will make you strong

Lay your mind to rest
You can't count on them
Because that won't change honey
And you'll find
You can save yourself
Because there's no one else
They had their chance
And now it's gone

Just know
Just know
You're wrong

And I can keep your heart intact
You can count on that until the end
And I'll say "but I can save myself"
Cause there's no one else
They had their chance
And now it's gone

Just know
Just know
I know
Track Name: Sea Song
She walked in
I believe
Just to prove that I
Was living well beneath my means

And over there
I made you run
You fell for it
And they let go

She said don't waste your time
‘Cause I'm out of fire

Falling on that shore
He's indifferent
He's reaching
Reaching for the floor

But by the time you arrive
Everybody's high
But you've got to be
Have to be so much more

And she's wondering how come
And she's wondering how come

But I'm the same as she said
It caught me in that light wind down
If I'm the darkest part of this light
How is that you always come around

If this is what you came for
Take it and leave
You're not the last to say it
And I believe
If this is what you saw in him
See it now
See it
Now I'm overcome

Falling on that shore
He's indifferent
Now he's reaching
Reaching for the floor

And she walked in
And she walked in
Oh
Track Name: Longshoe
Came up to town with severance for the married
Where's that you came from?
Is that right?

And well your mouth is shut
Your words they weigh a ton
You know I can outrun you in the end

But you can't take this if I
Got nowhere to go

Find your way to take me home
You're a driver and a liar and I'm in a jam
All my money's spent

Oh no

You can train yourself to fall
But I'm a gooner and a longshoe with a soul
My god you've been dumb

We'll fornicate your mind
Wrapped up with your violence
So this is where you've been
And baby you're a mess
You can't hide all your faces from the men

She said take your time
But honey don't you come

Time to make your money back
You're a shaker from the wrong side of the fence
You kept yourself insane

And if I'm down here with my gun
You're a favor for a sad sack
There he goes...
Aww don't

Anybody feel like giving me a ride home
Anybody feel like looking for my hands
Anybody feel like jumping
Oh no, you're just not ready yet
Oh no, you're just not ready yet

Time to make your money back
You're a shaker from the wrong side of the fence
You kept your story straight

You're gone
You carried back for sooo long
God dammit I'd rather be loved
You're staring back the sun
God dammit she said

I've been down before
Track Name: So Low
All of these things
Look at all of these things
That surround you
You're undermined by
What money can't buy
And you're scared
Well I am too

She won't trust a man
That's never had a drink in his hand
Brothers working schemes
While mendacity fills up the room
Why don't you let it all go
Away
By the side

I find
It's hard to come back
What's been said
What's been done with love
Let him run

Let's color the change
Forget the time
He spoke down to you
Now you're half the way
More than half the way
Gone

This crutch is too much
A little to late
To stand on
And I've been carrying this weight
‘Bout time I lean down on you

Don't you think so
Baby
You're out of time
Don't you think so
Baby

I find
It's hard to come back
With what's been said
What's been done with love
Let him run

Let's color the change
Forget the time he spoke down to you
Now you're half the way
More or less half the way
Gone
You're out time
Gone
You're out of time
Track Name: Chimp
Fairly you
Think I might be blinded

Got me tripping away
Cannot speak
Like a chimpanzee on a wire
And I've been feeling
A second fiddle
To your lonely march

Got me jumping back
Cannot see
Pleading my case to the bathroom wall
And I've been wondering
About that time
Your poppy kicked my head in

Fairly you
Think I must be blinded
Ha

By your beauty
Your simple beauty
It's got me running back in circles all over again
Again

Down this time I fall short
Down this time for sure

Fairly you
Think I might
