Track Name: Idiot
Cold talk radio playing underwater
when you jumped in with your glasses off
rabid dog dreams that can't be shaken
looking more real than a mirror can

Ukrainian speaking computer hacker
shocking his kids with a power cord
that fucker on the news feeling just like Jesus
pinned up to see as the dial turns

Disillusioned friend of mine
the ocean's edge concerned with itself
speaking tongues on the phone line
rain falling into water

Like an idiot
rain falling into water

Aperture open but out of focus
the color you see when your eyes are shut
like a blood-red river under desert sand
dramamine talker go and blame it on the weather

Disillusioned friend of mine
the ocean's edge concerned with itself
speaking tongues on the phone line
rain falling into water

Like an idiot
rain falling into water
Track Name: Dumb
Get out of my way what are you dumb?
I'm having my way and babe you can't make me stop.
I'm having my way.
Track Name: Strawberry Blonde
strawberry blonde bastard
there is a love I never thought real
audible, audible
there is a call I never could hear

premonition

a fiery son from the
union of men where the rivers run
not a visceral fool who
desires the food of the ear

premonition

pleading with folklore
I woke like I’m programmed to wake

premonition
Track Name: I'll Keep to Myself
I'll keep to myself and spend the whole day in bed
trying to recall all of the stupid things I said
I feel so lonely with such great friends
maybe 'cause it's been so long I had something to care about

Stuttering but clear
ringing in your ear
telling you to leave
you can't stay here

Nothing to congratulate and nothing to uphold
waiting for some prophecy fabricated to unfold
hanging on to faded fragments, someone else's past
waiting for the future to complain it's gone too fast

Stuttering but clear
ringing in your ear
telling you to leave
you can't stay here

Tentative and apathetic average looking people
you can't stay here
Track Name: In It 4 the Chase
In it for the chase
I'm in it for the chase
Track Name: She Can't Fantasize
She is a trophy skull that was never cleaned
an afterthought left to rot in the evergreen
soothed by maggot spots that float across her eyes
she just wants to dream but she can’t fantasize

I know this couple down on governor
ain’t doing to well cause he’s not loving her
she just wants to be chained down and terrorized
she just wants to scream but he can’t fantasize

all these people make me glad for girls like you
even in this world within a photobooth
so tell me again if, how, and when the fountain of youth
tell me again cause I’m bringing you in your bathing suit
Track Name: Some Strange Feeling
Some strange feeling came and picked me up
Came and picked me up
Some strange feeling
la da da, la da da
Track Name: Loraine
Geriatrics ask Loraine
if she’s a work of art
through her movements they relate
to years that drift a part

Loraine in agony
told me I had to leave
to leave

Harry X at 83
still worked up the nerve
to ask her to a matinee
when he overheard

that she perverted kids like me
finally unchained
we’re lions lying patiently
waiting to be tamed

Loraine in agony
told me I had to leave
to leave
Track Name: More Than Silverware
Get me a napkin to wipe it up!
Drain my sweat in a solo cup
three weeks from now take it out and say
"Amen"

I'm so tired, I'm so bruised
I don't care if you've been used
stranded in the cube, waiting for the sun
to go down

Shiny boat and fishing net in the sound, in the sound
waiting for a reason to turn around
lucky if you make it there, taste more than silverware
going through the motions, an alibi

You have your crisis on mahogany floors
you can't decide what color to paint the door
it's no threat, this accomplishment
still pending

Pulled my boots out of the lake
to make sure there is no mistake
you've done it, you're responsible
now get moving

Shiny boat and fishing net in the sound, in the sound
waiting for a reason to turn around
lucky if you make it there, taste more than silverware
going through the motions, an alibi
