them horses 01:58
bring thoughts of duress. regress, release regrets. undress yr best outfit and count them reasons i can't rest. them horses rode real hard, and now they givin it back for less it's just a three day ride if we leave immediately i got a hawkline lady waitin bleary-eyed for me. them horses rode real hard, and now they givin back for free. you know it 1 or the money babe, it's 2 for you know. it's just a theme for you when you hear it approaching you. them horses rode real hard and now they're givin it back as glue

anatomy like snake to snake. havin me like a mistake. after me like wake and hate's a great headache. just make checkmate. a mind so slow and viral finally make my mistakes final, fine. let's form a line and all march single file down the spiral. tumbleweeds float down the hall, bumblebees from wall to wall, a hundred me's appease yr every need. just graze me. something must replace all yr faults and denial. something must be placed at the bottom of every pile. dynamite's alrite tonite, it ties in sight from flying height. it lit the distance missin in our love, when bush came to glove. something must replace all yr faults and denial. something must be placed at the bottom of every pile.

everybody wants my baby. she just knocks off yr socks. when we walkin past the playground, the boys all start throwin rocks. everybody wants my baby. the young men holler and shout. the old men all get catatonic. you just see tongues rollin out. baby, we could make a killing just parading you around. baby, we could charge a shilling and be millionaires by sundown. everybody wants my baby. she's the whole goddam show. and if we ever get pulled over, they took two looks and let us go. baby we could make a killing just parading you around. baby we could charge a shilling and be millionaires by sundown everybody wants my baby. she's like a different kind of blue. shee's like a dream you never had boys. and for me that dream has come true

cages 03:35
you got a voice like a harmonica, a wall-eyed tongue-tied stare. i got a clear vision of hell. i don't even care if heaven's there. you got lips like cherry bombs, a sunshine so plain to see. i got a haunted house in my head, baby will you still walk into me? you got hair like an umbrella, baby, you keepin hearts out of arms. i got ambition like a space ship, but i got a brain like cars. you got hips like machinery, baby, you draw like a bath. i got a paranoid void of thought and i got problems like math. you got names like cages, you gotta dress like it's cold. i got nuthin but time pretty mama you know we got them old souls

it's a shame about you baby. it's a shame about yr man. well you know i miss that lady her lips the taste of coffee. and you know that i still smell her when i change the fucking filter. and a cigarette was lit such for his spirit was fit. oh and woe to you my love who knows what i'm capable of? i'm gonna weave my way back to you somehow. it's a shame about nebraska. glory glory lift you glass up. just like the shower drains. just like the couch stains. this one's for the not-allowed. boys, you know i'm gonna do you proud. i'ma get real stoned and i'ma get real loud and i'ma weave my way back to you somehow. i'm gonna weave my way back to you somehow. every note i wrote every butt i smoke every breath i choke every killing joke every killing joke it'a shame about you baby. it's a shame about yr man.

modern art has torn me down i blame myself. there's no one else around. all my friends left town i turn the music down turn my tv set around i saw the tape of you nude! you looked so good on yr way into the dressing room to put on yr perfume, to put on yr costume. i rewind and resume. you in yr blue towel, i can't help but howl when i'm thinking something smelling rotten, foul. what on earth was on yr mind when you saw what i arranged for you on the kitchen floor? felt like you been there before. oh maybe wanna see a little bit sore. feel like you'd like to see some more? you in yr blue towel, i can't help but howl, when i'm thinking something smelling rotten, foul.
10.
my house is on fire. distill the stink of what i think i maybe drink a littel too much. maybe shrinkin, maybe blinkin out of existence. oh i see empires in piles, my baby just smiles, she'd cry denial but it's not her style. and if i gotta do anything at all, i'll wait and do it inna while. my hair is on fire. find myself home alone w/ the good stuff playin poker alone callin my own bluffs. i'm gonna go ahead and end it rite here at the beginning, twas a nice life, but the lights are dimming. and if i gotta do anything at all, i'll wait and do it when i'm winning. and i'm winning. but i still feel so lost. my baby's on fire. i make my way to the train and try to maintain livin life like it's a drinking game. makin choke-holds where they don't go. it's ok, my superego's overgrown and blown away. and if i gotta do anything at all, it can wait just another day

i'm tumblin down an open vent when all my money is spent, i'm sleepin in a tent, and it's bent, but the rent is a god-sent-gently-down. i been thinkin that's it's all the same. i tumble off the train down the drain w/ the rain and the pain is a refrain i could do w/o. you can hang it on the wall, it'll be there when you get back. she looks so surprised, i'm like "don't touch it! it's electric!" you can meet me roundabout midnite, bring a pen and pipe, and the letter you typed, and i'm late i just might tumbled down a flight of stairs. i know i'm small and it's a universe but what's worse is that first i tumble into yr purse and immerse in my thirst and it hurts because nobody cares. nobody dares. you can hang it on the wall it'll be there when you get back. she looks so confused \, i'm like "don't touch it! it's electra-ka-kick!" here's a hint: bite the fear off yr own nose and open wide. i'm inside of what died, and baby that's what's weird AND why. attn: wanted - stranger than single, average, water-based carbon being archrival. you can hang it on the wall it'll be there when you get bacl. she looks so confused, i'm like "don't touch it, it's electric."
