Track Name: skeletons
skeletons

We bury our fears
In a trench out back
The less to recall
The less
To use for attack

We bury our seers
In a waterproof sack
We dance with the dead
And the dead
Give everything back

How many skeletons?
How many skeletons?

How many skeletons?
Did you use
To build
Your bunker?

How many skeletons?
Did you use
To fill
Your coffers?
Track Name: birdlife
birdlife

Can we figure out life at the age of five?
Do we have to deceive to keep love alive?
Is it part of the game to live without a name
It's a day in the life

November Rain rather november shame
Is it time to acquit playing december games?
When the cost is too much will we know it's enough
Or will April become another Grovian bluff

The scheme of the eve the equatorial scenes
of the past they remind me of a warm Hallow's eve
With love in the air and a shadowy stare
From the Capitol lights to the Dane County Fair

Again it is spring and the sparrows will sing
From the branches about their romanticist flings
I am living a lie and I'm leaving with grace
Why marry a girl when you can marry a place?

It's birdlife

I see what you want me to be

It's birdlife
Track Name: colorado waltz
colorado waltz

They got hitched
As we lay
Dead drunk
in a ditch

Will they miss us?
Are they listening?
To the darkness?
Where we're kissing
Our blue lives away

It's a cinch
A knot much less
Sticky
Than this

Will they miss us?
Are they listening?
To the darkness?
Where we're kissing

A pint of this or that, this or that or this
A pint of this or that, this or that or this
Track Name: shelter belt
shelter belt

You were my maiden grove
You were the hidden lights
You were the lathe and strop
You were the windy maple nights

You were my shelter belt

You were the chlorine tank
You were the quiet talks
You were the red wine nights
You were the salted water walks

You were my shelter belt

Solo

You were my frozen mug
You were my broken home
You were my cobain tears
You were my skeleton

You were my shelter belt
Track Name: skin
skin

We are inside
We are outside
We are green like

This farm that we paid
For with no money down
In the hazy 80s

We are skin
We are fire
We are words to the wise
We are worlds of incipient desire
Track Name: lung champions of big hearted river
lung champion of bighearted river

Charcoal hearts of the city
Where the banana girls dwell
Give me a key to the sewer
So i can recast this broken spell

Give me a carotene headache
Chant me a nicotine song
Cast my heart in the river
M & m is where the ash belongs

Lung champion of bighearted river
Lung champion of two-hearted song
Lung champion of two-faced skimmer
Lung champion will right our wrongs
Track Name: saturday night special
saturday night special

Got all shot up last night
Near the port
In the lamp light

Two men caught shadows
And carried them along

The mourners sang their song
In the portside bar

As the dolphin lurkers
Sucked on prog
And dreamed of idols
Track Name: youth of america
youth of america

Joey b. wails
Shaking the casino walls

At the malls of america
Graffiti on the bathroom stalls

We're the youth of america
We're the youth of america

Bill B sails
On a motor mushroom cloud
In his gated community
Who will feed ‘em hotdogs now?

We rage in our cars
We're the youth of america

We shoot up our bars
We're the youth of america

Got them in our sights
We're the youth of america

We kill for the rights
We're the youth of america

David D rails
Stirring up the troglodytes
In this Nazi America
You better pull your bedsheets tight
(You better get ready to fight)

Where the truth is chimerical
(youth of america)
Where our thoughts are hysterical
(youth of america)
Where the game is distraction
(youth of america)
And the lessons unbearable

We're the youth of america
We're the youth of america
Track Name: shudder to drink
shudder to drink

We drank up their spit
And swallowed their gin
We're the champions
We're the champions
We swam in the muck
In the time of our sins
We're the champions
We're the champions

And we shudder to drink
And we stutter and clink
And we murmur and blink
As we shudder to drink
Till morning daylight comes
Track Name: red roof inn
red roof inn

Sinners winners buffalo skinners
The theatre a pulpit
For surrogate sinners
(you know)

We drink ourselves to death
At the red roof inn

Blamers shamers name of the gamers
Arrogant art man and
City light makers

We drink ourselves to death
At the red roof inn

Lemurs gleaners suicide schemers
Canada dry and the
Dulcet tone dreamers

We drink ourselves to death
At the red roof inn

We drink ourselves to death
At the red roof inn
