Track Name: Friday Night
Two-five too high to drive to you
Tonight was just another try
To make two tape together all the years of light and
Show the enemy a sign

No way no one knows there’s no way
To treat the innocence of life
No two know how to use our moments of time
So we give it a try…
Track Name: Chest Pain
My cardiologist said
“Have a seat and stay a while.
Quite runnin’ out on all my up-to-date facilities, my expertise, my flattery, my contact with reality and you.”
The reality of you.
What am I sposed to do?

(When boundaries break down
My boundaries break down
Your boundaries break down
Our boundaries break down, yeah.

It’s okay.
Don’t kiss me.
Go home, be with your family.
They’d like that.
I’d think so
Don’t ask me why, I don’t know.
Oh what a night to go home.
Let’s say goodnight but don’t go.)
x2
Let’s call this spade a heart
Some call it modern art
Others call it alcoholic
Hey.

(It’s gonna be okay.
We’re gonna be okay.)
x3
It's gonna be.
Track Name: Maggie
Maggie, my love,
When I was sleepin on your floor
Readin up on consciousness, I missed you needed more.
Saturday, you said “don’t come home”
Sunday you said “ever again”
Monday morning I was all alone, hardly callin you a friend.

Maggie, why’d you stand up to kiss me?
Did it hurt you? Do you miss me? Will we someday remake history?
Maggie, will you ever forgive me?

Maggie, my love,
When I was sleepin on your floor
We danced sometimes to second lines
But we never hit the shore

Maggie why’d ya stand up to kiss me?
Did it hurt ya? Do you miss me? Will we ever remake history?
Maggie, will you someday forgive me?

And please, can I get back my shirt?
Please, can I help ya with your work?
Please can I help ya with your hip?
Please can I get another strip tease?
At least, Maggie, can I get my hundred dollars?
Maggie, can I get at least my share?
Track Name: To Be Honest
To be honest, I went and talked to my therapist
To be honest, I spent all my time on you
And it seems, in spite of all my reservations, my curiosity has got the best of me.
Please sit next to me.
I’ll meet you halfway if you’ll meet me halfway.
Come meet me halfway.
To be honest, when I went and talked to my therapist
I already knew what he’d say
Track Name: Dolores
That’s how it’s done
Taken for granted
Taken for life man.
They’ve taken his son.
That’s how it’s done.

And I don’t care what the truth is man
So long as the money is good
I don’t care what the truth is man
Here’s a buck. Call my family good.

That’s how it’s done.
No one to question.
No one but us man.
But nobody hears.
That’s how it’s done.

And I don’t care… etc.

That’s how it’s done.
Til revolution.
Until we all fight for
What we don’t know.
And get back our son.
Track Name: Clean Up Song
Past the ambulance
Crackin eggs on countertops
Counterweight won’t make it stop
Crackin eggs and takin shots

Sometimes advil helps
And broken glass can sound so pretty
If you’re in that kind of mood.
Yeah broken glass can sound so pretty
If you’re in that kind of mood.

Why did Huey die?
Centuries of heavy winds blown,
Taller building to push the air
Centuries of frightened faces.
To stay inside or clean the air?
Track Name: Now (11/9/2016)
I tried a shoe size up cause I’m not Cindarella
I’m just what I tell her
I’m just a mountain of my self-reflections crystalized in years
A volcano who doesn’t know if someday soon he’s gonna blow

How can I stand up if I’m bubbling over?
I miss October
I miss the constance of her hairdo lips and petty little lies
November 9th, 2016 - when we awoke to a bad dream

Give me grace, give me comfort, give me love, give me something to give.
I’m young enough.
And it means too much to me and you and her
And everybody cries
And now’s the time.
Track Name: With Doubt
Take all of your doubts and hole them up for winter tell them you will see them soon in the spring.
Take all of your doubts and tuck them under covers til the morning when you’ll see them once again.

Don’t you realize you’re a failure?
You ought to know that we’re all failin too

Take all of your doubts and hold them to the light and tell them they are free to up and walk around.
Take all of your doubts and show them how ya rockstep home to Randy Newman’s record Sail Away.

Don’t you realize you’re a sailor?
You ought to know that we’re all sailin too

Take all of your doubts and hole them to the light and tell them they are free to up and walk around.

Don’t you realize you’re a failure?
You ought to know that we’re all failin too.
Don’t you realize you’re a failure?
Why can’t we all fail in twos?
