Track Name: Good Enough To Marry On
Everything you see can turn to gold. And that’s ok with me. Yeah that’s ok by me. You won’t get me to bite. Everything you see can turn to stone. And that’s ok with me. Yeah that’s ok by me. You won’t get me to bite. It’s good enough for the girls we know to marry on. Get on the roof, there’s no way home. It’s good enough for the girls we know to marry on. Get on the roof, there’s no way home. Na-na-na. It’s good enough for the girls we know to marry on. Get on the roof, there’s no way home. Everything you see can turn to gold.
Track Name: All God's Creatures Die
We took turns shaving the beast last night. Some still learn, others never get more bright. Saw old friends, got him down to blood-filled pores and oiled skin, makes one wish for nothing more than... All god’s creatures die. On the way to the light. All god’s creatures fight, then die. We took turns blessing hollow blessings forward. When we burn, ashes follow asses or burn. All god’s creatures lie on the way to the light. All god’s creatures sigh, then die.
Track Name: Presents for Indians
It’s not much after all you’ve given us. I’m not sure you meant to, but now it’s ours. Jack and I brought presents for the Indians. Not a lot, just the crap we no longer use. What a mistake they made.
Track Name: Freeze My Old Guns
It’s time to bury your favorite child. Time to freeze my old guns. It’s time to find new ways to smile. Time to silently hum... this tune that nobody knows.
Track Name: Teachers’ Teachers
Little sister with the lazy eye, the boys tease then run home to cry. Wish I knew what I said I know, then we’d just get up and go home. The teachers’ teachers are lonely too. They’re lonely too. The doctor’s doctors are lonely too. They’re lonely too. Your idiotic ideology means the world to you but nothing to me. Hard to learn hard to unlearn. Hard to leave hard to return home. The teachers’ teachers are lonely too. They’re lonely too. Our bosses’ bosses are lonely too. They’re lonely too. And secret lies materialize. We can’t deny a crest. A secret pact can set you back. It’s best to track the pest. The teachers’ teachers are lonely too. They’re lonely too. The doctor’s doctors are lonely too. They’re lonely too.
Track Name: Natalie and I
The spiders inch across the window. Natalie and I hold hands. I swear to god the rent’s forgotten. The knock reminds us to sift sand. And all the rest are gone. We’re forced to swim across the river, we’re forced to swim to foreign lands. Natalie and I together, we have each other’s shoulder pads. And all the rest are gone.
Track Name: The Chains Insane
Sitting on the holy heart waiting for another start. Tell yourself it never comes, cuz it never comes. Never comes. Sitting on the city rain pleading with your daddy plain. Tell yourself it never comes, cuz it never comes. Never comes. And it feels like all the chains insane. Yeah, it feels like all the chains insane. Sipping on the wine of youth, clear as all the morning dew. Cloudiness it never comes. It never comes. Never comes. And it feels like all the chains insane. Yeah, it feels like all the chains insane. And it feels like all the chains insane. Yeah it feels like all the chains insane.
Track Name: Ordinary Battle Cries (For Now)
Let go of me on the count of three. Let go of me or else. Think about my history, or see it for yourself. Ordinary battle cries are all I know. I plan to study hard and have more to show. Now run away far and soon, and hum your favorite song. You’re not the smartest in the room, so stand up brave and wrong. Ordinary battle cries are all I know. I plan to study hard and have more to show.
Track Name: Try Hard Enough To Fall
Whole or not, all we got’s the speed of anguish. Afraid to blush, the patch and paint, a foreign language. You try so hard you fall. Over and over you fall. I’m like you, I can tip a canoe. The things we ponder. Passing through the afternoon, the past tense is fonder. I try so hard I fall. Over and over I fall. Try so hard you fall. Over and over, we should fall.
Track Name: Pixies Shirt
While they bite her tongue, you might rummage through the jar. While the fighters come, you might pretend to care, but if all else fails, you can sit inside with me tonight, or just zip the tent up, cuz what’s fair is fair. Lorraine sits in the rain until they’re done. Lorraine swallows the pain, Lorraine. In a Pixies shirt, she’s looking so American. In a dirty shirt, he couldn't look much worse. So he says his bit, and she says that she’s not interested. Then he beats her up, and he asks her not to curse. Lorraine sits in the rain until they’re done. Lorraine swallows the pain, Lorraine. Well, the one on one seems to go on forever though everyone always says it’s soon to end. But if all else fails, you can sit inside with me tonight in your Pixies shirt and the message it sends.
Track Name: Betty on the Back Page
All this crying makes me tired. I let a little fight decide our fate. I wish I owned me a motorbike. It’s Betty on the back page. Did the dud collect the racket? Did he hold out both hands? If he’s gonna make me feel this way, let me feel it like a man.
Track Name: Honesty Bumpers
Get back to your crying. If you plan to be away from me, go slow. Get back to your trying. Before the honesty bumpers go bump bump in the night. They said to hold each other close, stick with the one you chose, they said. Get back, now you’re lying. Circle your knuckles or end up in a fight. Get back, no denying. If you’re gonna be away from me, plan slow. They said to hold each other close, stick with the one you chose. They said hold each other close, stick with the one you chose.
