I'm no gunslinger Ain't been west of Texas Oh I'm a deep thinker And I know who DeCartes is And I think therefore I am And I think like a man With thoughts like any other one But I know there's no other one I'm waiting for the sun But it never comes And when it burns out I want to be around I want to make you notice So they'll call off the dogs Unlock the gates I've got four walls to keep me safe

No Mas 01:49
This is one you can take home And paint it on your tail fin And when your coffee tastes like bathtub gin All your thoughts resemble West Berlin You'll re-ride The Orange Line And only insects will hum You will slowly come undone Like a sweater There's no Flying Dutchman to be found All ghost ships run aground And as you stand out to the coast Awash in overtones Pampered in plastic One day it will end All the King's Horses And all the King's Men Quietly quote “Off with his head!” Just like Alice And this one you'll recognize Back when they called it a classic Now you're being sent to your room Like a naughty boy with a tall glass of antiseptic And you'll write Amis in rhyme And it always comes out the same Nobody will remember your name Oh I've got a name No Mas

I'd like to think that I still care And that's why these words sound so cryptic I can't believe it's the truth And that's why I'm withholding information I left town with your money in the bank Told me that you shouldn't have settled Rode the green giant to the county line Wrote you a letter Yeah it was a sign There's no looking back No looking back anymore No use for nostalgia not that it matters You like to think you'd change the past if you could Well you could but that wouldn't matter Your actions touched me deeply This relationship wasn't working You know you could have had all the sky If only you had made up your mind And maybe it ended to soon But I'm just lying and now you're crying Why didn't you take the better man? Things would have gone more according to plan And there's no looking back No looking back anymore No use for nostalgia not that it matters You like to think you'd change the past if you could Well you could but that wouldn't matter And I know it hurts to be a fool But that color looks quite well on your And I don't want to fuck with your head You've deserved it ever since you crawled out of bed And there's no looking back No looking back anymore No use for nostalgia not that it matters You like to think you'd change the past if you could Well you could but that wouldn't matter No that wouldn't matter

I bet that you like Julian Cope Don't tell me you don't Don't don't don't

Sneaky Robby 01:45
He's got the action He's got the Burning Hand He's got the master plan And he'll hire a train to take his mortal remains away And leave a calling card He won't open his eyes It fucks up the view of his sky She's a go getter Her friends used to call her a mister Her friends only called when they missed her And now her ears aren't ringing And she's a slight of hand She won't open her eyes Until they adjust to the light They're like anyone They're like everyone And they're so filled with regret With every chord that I fret
6.
Whistling in the park Every night after dark You're walking underneath the same old stars It's late where you are And no one knows just how far You'll go to be #1 in the state It's going to happen to you some sunny day Or maybe it ain't
7.
It's so nice to see you It's so good to see you here We haven't spoke in so many years I thought you died or maybe disappeared You know that Athens is dead And they'll hang you for listening to Sabbath until dawn Tell me why you came back Tell me what's your angle There's no ticker tape This ain't no parade This ain't no A-side But it sure ain't no B-side And besides you know Athens is dead And they'll hang you for listening to Sabbath until dawn Oh well you ain't no favorite son of my state And sometimes I think you're supposed to leave Tell me what am I looking at? Is this the boy who is or the boy who was voted most likely to be devoured by the sun? You know Athens is dead And they'll hang you for listening to Sabbath until dawn

Twin Cities 02:03
You fall and break your crown On a fountain pen lying on the ground You cry out in pain You're not dead boy, your leg's just lame And you'll wear it on a shirt For lack of a better word And it's hard to be knocked down With Twin Cities all around me right now Watch it unfold again Slipping on a fountain pen This time it'll all go south As the pearly whites get knocked straight out of your mouth And I'm finally aware And I'll sell all my shares on a dare I won't cut my hair or tie a tie I can be a drone in another life And now it's forty below Is the sun still shining? Well you just don't know And it's all white as you can see It's not alright between you and me And you'll wear it on a shirt For lack of a better word And it's hard to be knocked down With Twin Cities all around me right now

Happy Again 01:28
I can't believe I'm stuck here in the room When I look out my window at night I don't see the moon But I'm happy to be happy again I've been pitching the idea ever since I was 22 And the calendar says I'm almost 26 Well that just can't be true But I'm happy to be happy again And this trickles up and down my spine Like grains from an hour glass I know it will pass I tried to leave the house but there was no use I declined to stay in bed cos it seemed like something I could do Still I'm happy to be happy again

Art is Hard 03:39
“Who's on the seventh floor? Brewing alternatives” Spare us all your flowery words They won't help you here They won't help you at all It's ok I know one day Someone will say the same things I have said in my place Art is Hard “I am the Dice Man And I take the chance, yeah” Do you take the chance? Well I can't believe that I don't believe that at all It's ok I know some day Someone will say the exact same things You have said in your place Art is Hard And there you sit As same as ever As idle as a thousand suns You put your hand to the pencil And the pencil to the pad Never has anything so sharp Ended up so dull and bland Is tonight just not your night? Did you set the bar too high? Crumbling prose Nobody knows What I've been going through Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news But they do and they have and they will, yes it's true And they've articulated it better than you Money, money's everywhere But there's not a cent to spend What do I care? If I don't get my share? Am I taking myself too seriously? Or have I realized I just haven't earned it yet, baby Because it's never the being that you dream of It's only the becoming you want If this wasn't your life would you care what you've got? Because Art is hard
11.
It's only blurry lines that I spy with my little eye And I dreamt I was Shelley Duval But nature was just playing a card And it seems your elevator Won't leave my ground floor If I say it again You'll say you've heard it before Tonight I'm cracking I'm losing sleep in spades And I wonder how long till the medicine takes? Fever is in the South Fever is all around And it all seems normal until you sound it out
