Stuff I Lost 01:05
I've been thinking about the stuff I lost Two pairs of sunglasses, a cat and love Left at Star or in a bar I've been thinking about the stuff I lost Got my feet on the floor and my head on the floor I don't think I'm gonna get too far
When they told us they were leaving They were gone before we knew what to say I could barely just believe it Now we're here and they're a thousand miles away It took an awful long time To get it out of my mind And give it up Found I'd wandered in the kitchen Cut my hand and didn't feel a thing Now we're losing our religion Like it's something we forgot to bring We pulled ashore and asked for safe harbor Tired and cold nearly sunk in the storm They looked confused and asked what we meant When the weather for days had been sunny and warm When they left and it was too late I laid down but couldn't fall asleep
It's like when you say you're leaving And you don't tell the real reason You have to go You have to leave before it gets too bad She says "I'll see you later" And you wait a long time for the elevator All the time the ocean sound is ringing in your head It's been exactly forty minutes since she said "I still want to be friends" Once in a while I wonder How long before I'm going under once again How long before the black tomorrow comes Sometimes you can smell the storm on the wind And sometimes it's a false alarm And everything returns to how it was when it began It's like learning to fly and taking off Before you know just how to land My friends always cut me some slack Some of them move away, some come back I'm glad they're here They make it worth the drive to Somerville To not be on my own Those times when I don't want to go home Because I know when I get there I'll wish I hadn't left Because my brain won't shut up and it goes in cycles And it won't let me rest
Chuck Jones 03:20
If you want to catch something that's good to eat You can get some rocket skates and strap them to your feet Or a giant cannon or some angry bees Or just reach behind a rock and pull out TNT Everything I know I learned from Chuck Jones Everything I know If you're sitting quietly underneath a tree Or asking for directions to get to Pismo Beach And some asshole shoots you or starts to scream and yell He doesn't know it yet but he's about to enter hell So if some asshole shoots you or tries to start a fi
Here the voices never sleep (Can't afford to lose my patience) Since they put the implants in my teeth (Beam my location to the agents) Get off the street and duck into a door (Before they get me to reveal) Safe inside the crowd inside the store What if all these guns were real (Why are all thee kids in here) What if all these guns were real Definitely picking up a tone (In aisle 3 I see the danger) These toys are full of psychic microphones (That g.i. barbie sega ranger) Now everyone is staring at me hard (I can't afford to make a mistake) Before they call the security guard What if all these guns were fake (There's too many people here) What if all these guns were fake Always go out shooting I can't afford to wait until the end To find out if you're a friend
Picture yourself on a river in a boat With trees made of wood And a shore full of dirt and rocks and shit That's where we are now Turn around Go back It's too late I want some clean water
I could say it's over now That I was glad to see you go I could hate you for the way I'm feeling My lips could tell a lie but my heart would know It's a sin to make me cry When you know I love you so I could tell my heart that I don't miss you My lips could tell a lie but my heart would know Now I could give you all the blame But I'm sure the truth would show I could tell this world I've found a new love My lips could tell a lie but my heart would know I can't fool my cryin' heart 'Cause it knows I need you so I could tell my heart I'm glad we parted My lips could tell a lie but my heart would know
Fader 04:14
Do you need something I'm gong to the store Looking for one specific thing they don't make anymore I always see one guy He's changing all the tags And talking to his garbage bags And it's fading out on me What was the reason we first came to this place Shit that happened years ago I still don't want to face Let's just forget it, it isn't any fun Now what did I want to get done This is taking a long time The calm before the storm Everyone's huddled in the line just trying to stay warm Keeping from yawning I hope it's worth the wait I might be a little late
Lonesome Antboy: I spit upon the last days They wilt like a Chinese Tarzan Tell Finder release_the_plagues Stay long away My sentence again delayed Now I lapse into self-indulgence I don't have a thing to say but say it anyway The instructions they were receiving Were misconstruable and misleading Badly spoken and unrepeating There was no excuse The directions they were demanding Were deviated and underhanding If we could foster some understanding What would be the use Pulled into the Jesus Van Turns out that I'm just a bleeder They said "You're a lucky man" then left a piece behind Got home to see my blue pages Sacrificed to the King In Yellow I need to remind myself that I don't have the time --- Model Café: Broke down Snow on the ground All around Got some inside me I was slipping away These hands Make their demands She laughs She's trembling so bad She can just say her name Never nothing Always something I know something's wrong On the phone Is Mike at home On hold They couldn't wake him He was too far away Broke down Snow on the ground All around I couldn't find me I was driving away Away --- Big Blue Water: Everything is fine now I'm surrounded by this beauty And it doesn't want to hurt me And it doesn't want to kill me Over the big blue water Then suddenly I'm in it It's all around me in me It's just cold for a minute Under the big blue water A diving upwards fall Going faster every second It's not so bad at all Now I can feel my body Put up one last fight Then I can see the towers Then I can see the light Iä
All the old ones have gone home Leaving us here on our own All the moments didn't last All the voices fromm the past Walking underground Painting in the sun Bleeding all around Blaming everyone Nearly ten years fading fast Cowboy boots and leaves of glass Don't need the best just the cheapest Just the part that goes the deepest All the old ones are still around Austin Allston Allentown 350 miles from here I still remember the cancer year
I gave Bruce a tape of mixes And I said, "They're roughs I have to fix the fade on 'Fader' And Tim hasn't laid down his solo yet" Later he came to see me And he said, "You know that song 'Trajectory' is just so sad I wanted to call to see if you were okay" I said, "I did the song a week ago You're kind of late but thanks anyway"
