Track Name: Spooning the Gorilla
Take me to the country
Force me down the streets
To verify my maker
To make me to my knees

And if the git comes stuffin'
on the fighting was coffee
I won't get some sleep
just 'cause I thought I'd fade out
I'm fighting for your body
I want to teach your body how

Take me to the country
I can hardly speak
Make me more than money
Before I go to sleep
I promised to my mamma
I'd give you something sweet
That something's gonna give now
Before I go to sleep
Track Name: Sleepy Jean
Listen here
Darling Dear
Give me money
I'm afraid of Rock n' Roll
I'm a dog without his bone
Don't let me go

It's so clear
I'm not here
This isn't happening
Happiness is a warm gun
That you shoot 'cause you're so killer
and I hate you
Don't let me go

All day
Stoking a fire for an old flame
Put me inside and I'll always
blow the punch line too
And that's because I
always ba-ba-ba
always ba-ba

Sleepy Jean
you're so clean
and I'm so sedated
I forgot a face like yours
Because I'm a creepy weirdo
and I scare you
Don't let me go

All day
Stoking a fire for an old flame
Put me inside and I'll always
blow the punch line too
And that's because I
always ba-ba-ba
always ba-ba-ba
Track Name: MoneyMouth
My my
Those eyes
Carved out like key limes
I don't need nothin' from you
I can only get stronger from here

I'd need
some more
You think I keep score
but I can't keep nothin' from you
Life can only get longer from here

Now I'm frightened
Know why?
You beat it in me
now I'll beat it back into you
I can only get stronger from here

I'm at the food mart
I'll buy the whole store
now I'm gonna give it to you
Life can only get longer from here

So give me those wide-eyed faces
Draw them across brittle bones
Leave me outside of the cross signal fire
Love never carried me home
Track Name: How Do You?
In my head, In my head
I was moving, Now I’m dead.
Who are you?

Break the bread, Drink some wine
I’ll touch yours, If you touch mine
How do ya do?
In my lonely lovers lair
Standing in her underwear
We will dirty happy be
La La La La La La La.

Oh Suzanne, You’re a man
You have ruined all my plans
How do you Do?

She’s got style, She’s got grace
She’s got something on her face
How do you Do

Look at mother
Look at dad
well they’re such a happy sad
Look at dirty happy me
La La La La La La La

In my head
In my head
I was moving, now I’m dead
But who are you?
Hold me close
Hold my nose
Hold this leaky garden hose
Wait, who are you?

Look at ma, look at pa
Don’t you look just like them!
Wait, but who are you?

You break my bread
Drink my wine
Pump my heart
and ????? my mind
But who are you?
Who are you?

In my head
In my head
I was moving
Now I’m dead
Who are you?
Track Name: The Soup Song
Hanna was drawing on the side of my face
Signing her name wherever mine had just been replaced
Hanna, I know what I can see with my eyes
Hanna, I never want to see you with that guy

She's biting her lip out of the corner of my eye
Slurping the soup through a straw in an apple pie
Hanna, I know what I can see with my eyes
Hanna, I never want to see you with that guy

The more your brains keep touching me
The more you break my heart

But I'll avert my eyes
'cause I could never be alone without you
I've got stories that I'll never tell
about fourteen girls in a wishing well
Cover up my eyes
'cause I could never been alone without you

The more your brains keep touching me
The more you break my heart
The more your brains keep touching me
The more you break my heart
Track Name: Casablanca
You've got a number
You've got a spine
You've got your whole wide world
and now you're after mine
But if you want that
give me a show
you greedy cow

Let's put our lovers
against the wall
I want to find out where
we all went wrong
Give me your number
or make one up
I'd call myself but
I don't have the guts
I want to know you
I really do
I want much more
but nothing after you
I didn't know that
I want to go
Give me some more
or else I'll leave the show
Track Name: Hallways
Someone's in the kitchen
cooking up the trouble
I could be your lover
if I had a double
I would take you home
like all the other doubles do

I would take the spoon
and fill it with desire
filthy little crystals
set them all on fire
send them down the hallways
bodies will know what to do

Oh oh oh.

Martha's in the kitchen
Losin' all her marbles
cooking up more problems
'cause everybody loves them
Chase them with your whiskey
it's the fashionable thing to do

I am in the backyard
digging up my double
you just stood there laughing
laughing at my shovel
With such a pointy finger
why don't you point at something true?

Oh oh oh.
Track Name: Stop Me
Stop me now
I’m on another short break
Hold them close
in an electric embrace
Hold the line
just a little bit longer

Cause I
Feed fires force fast food fill fear to the face
Trick trend-trapped teenage tongue to the taste
Sell sex-soaked songs, sell sunlight to states
My mouth mends minds all over the place

Stop me now
before the toxicant takes
Fill the canyons on your ugly face
Paranoia, such a catchy little number

Cause I
Feed fires force fast food fill fear to the face
Trick trend-trapped teenage tongue to the taste
Sell sex-soaked songs, sell sunlight to states
My mouth mends minds all over the place

Stop me if your ears are bleeding
Stop me if you’re dim
Stop me if you get too weary
I can tuck you in
Or Maybe
Stop me if I get too pushy
If you need some time to think
Stop me if my late night calls are
Driving you to drink
Or Maybe
Stop me if you’re out of money
or if you’re scared to ask
Stop me though you know I love you
Caught beneath the glass
Aw Baby
Track Name: Modern Eyes
All I want is blue and white
and crimson coloured eyes
doppelganger for my
lonesome bloodshot modern eyes

Sexy helicopter
twist your body down on me
save this latent terror plot
from all its dirty needs

I climb the stairs
and find you there
filthy affair

I would bleed
in three-toned symphonies
and say my prayers
But someone's eaten
all my food
and sat in my favourite chair
Track Name: Gravity Pope
All I want and
all I need
is one more night with you
I can see you seein' me
you may think I don't
I do

She wrote me some poetry
and I offered her my head
Every night we bounce like springs
on a big old fashioned bed
Track Name: Mr. Magoo
And when I make my money
I'm gonna glow
Bright like Manhattan Island
Covered in snow
And when my lights go out
I'll never know

I want a black tie
to cut my collar again
I want a black tie
to cut my collar again
One more shiny dollar

So you don't trust me, lover
What did I do?
And what I saw on Tuesday
wasn't that you?
You said you'd fall for no one else
Mr. Magoo

I want a black tie
to cut my collar again
I want a black tie
to cut my collar again
One more shiny dollar
