Track Name: Cats In Mirrors
Cats in mirrors, ships and dogs
All smoothed out like monologues
To conquer fear inside your room
I’ll wait until the end of June
Well, I just stared into your eyes
They opened up like butterflies
A dreamer’s nightmare kills a friend
It waits until the very end

You’re crawling through, you’re killing me
We don’t want love, we wanna be free

Well, I could stay here ‘til I die
To show you skill is just a crime
A new relationship was found
Cremated, buried underground
Faith was found to just exist
Girls get drunk, scared shitless
The football team kept driving on
To only find their hearts were bombs

You’re crawling through, you’re killing me
We don’t want love, we wanna be free

Strike a match, get on the horse
You rode through streets and felt remorse
Ideas come and ideas go
When a vampire state of systems glows
Cats in mirrors, ships and dogs
All smoothed out like monologues
To conquer fear inside your room
I’ll wait until the end of June

You’re crawling through, you’re killing me
We don’t want love, we wanna be free
You’re killing me
Track Name: Get My Ass Fired
I don't want you to call me a liar
But I don't wanna get my ass fired
We could sit for a while, talk about it
But in the morning things will be resolved

In the corner I'll wake up on a Monday
Sit right down in a lawn chair on the freeway
But if you turn out to be the monkey in the cage
Well then we'll just have to let you go

I don't want you to call me a liar
But I don't wanna get my ass fired
We could sit for a while, talk about it
But in the morning things will be resolved
Track Name: Hip Hop Nation
Well it's a hop hop nation
You could put the dogs out of their misery
You kill 'em before we do
They'll set up a candle for you

Well it's a hop hop nation
Well it's a bling bling nation
You're stroking all the cats in the alleyway
Cars full of critters and clues
They'll kill 'em before they do to you
Track Name: Roller Skates Of Hell
Did you think that something changed
Was it a lie that you told me
Stories quit me like a charm
And nothing was altered since you left
Interlocking with you hands
Holding hot coals in the sunlight
Your mother could be a star
Riding in the roller skates of Hell
In my roller skates of Hell

Influenza caught me through
Driving the kids back to school
Turn the heat up in your car
It was never cold when she was here
I am a visionary, I am your canary
I know all of your songs
Was I treated like a clone
In my roller skates of Hell

Streets and rivers brought me here
Countries saw your ships turn into dogs
We'll walk down and I'll see land
Staring into your vulgar eyes
Mom and Dad don't look the same
And California's not your type
Your sister could stay with you
In my roller skates of Hell
Track Name: All The Day's Dreams
All the day's dreams and all the day's fears
Come crashing down easy
And no one will hear the sounds of your whispers
Like a ghost in my mouth
The furnace is burning, your mind is too loud
And the clocks keep on ticking throughout the night
The birds of the tower taking their flight
There's a new stack of letters waiting to be read
There's a man in the courtroom waiting to be dead
All the day's dreams

The alligator pit is hungry again
Their stomachs are filled with three thousand men
While the planet is spinning, a new baby wakes
To find his dear parents swimming in a lake
Where the sex is terrific, the water is warm
The dreamers are genius, a baby is born
And all the day's dreams and all the day's lies
Get tied with frustrations in little bow ties
All the day's dreams

You don't belong to the world
I will see you as a pearl rolling under their chairs
The times become hard to pertain
Like a song in your brain
West Virginia's not the same

And all the day's dreams and all the day's fears
Come crashing down easy
And no one will hear the sounds of your whispers
Like a ghost in my mouth
The furnace is burning, your mind is too loud
And all the day's dreams fade away
Track Name: Bathtub Water
Hollywood postcards being torn by the wolves
And you were drinking all your might
A shudder of silence came from the crowd
And you were drinking
You were drinking bathtub water
Why do I think I’m getting old
Am I just afraid of being the last one around

Sleep on the carpets, playing records at night
And you were yelling
You were yelling ‘til you were right
Mathematical wizard belongs with his friends
And you were drinking
You were drinking bathtub water
That city, it had no life
‘Til you came and brought it
And showed us why we were ill

It’s so overwhelming to say what I think
And you were dreaming
You were dreaming into the night
My life is a graveyard filled with tombs of your smiles
And you were drinking
You were drinking bathtub water
I’m running for my whole life
I’m yawning and I’m snarling
And you showed us why I was ill

Should’ve watched you
Should’ve washed you
Should’ve watched you
You in your bathtub water
Track Name: The New Bucket
My hands are greasy like America’s cousin
A fox in the snow that you’ve been loving
Fashion brings me to ask if all of this is real
A white room made of jewels, a crown I could tuck
In the backseat of your slow fuck
God brings me to question why you’re feeling lucky

Take a ride for my new rocket
Here is a toast for the new bucket

You play your bass guitar on Fridays
I play my drums on Saturdays and Sundays
We could never get the time to talk to each other
Dripping off the excess beauty
Of the poet who was needy
And now we gotta believe that circumcision is real

Take a ride for my new rocket
Here is a toast for the new bucket
For the new

We take a ride for my new rocket
Here is a toast for the new bucket
I will belong if you are my socket
Here is a toast for the new bucket
For the new
Track Name: They Say God Is Present
They say God is present
They know you've got nerves
I know there is a devil
Shining his horns

There will be another restart
Line up the streets
When you know just what to do
Not you can't afford

They say God is present
I'd like to see some proof
If you think you'll be out of here soon
I'd have to lie to you
Track Name: Saddle Of Your Soul
You think you got a lot of nerve
To do what you do when you never get hurt
These thoughts filling up my head
They lead me to the bathroom, they lead me to my bed
You gotta ride the saddle of your soul

My legs won't carry me long
For I need some superstition, I need some time to belong
My job looks just like a net
Trapping me helpless, trapping me in my bed
You gotta ride the saddle of your soul
Don't you even know where it's gonna go
You gotta ride the saddle of your soul

You think that I don't need to sing
I can go into the pewter, I can go inside the sink
You know that I don't need a friend
To say "Hello dear, why don't you ever win?"
("Hello dear, where have you been?")
You gotta ride the saddle of your soul
Don't you even know why it's gonna go
You gotta ride the saddle of your soul
Track Name: Pushing Down The Doors
A cradle, a casket tied to nothingness
She said she was a little piece of gold
An outlaw of lost love and a reader of lonely men
She never slept
She was pushing down the doors
The bus was a bird's nest
The streets were another mess
You didn't know what you would sell me for
The people in prisons get dreams so innocent
You fell in love, you were pushing down the doors

The second chance of a second year
Is cartilage inside your ear
You didn't know that I was just a ghost
The nightlife was bent up and clicking with castanets
I lost the bet, I was pushing down the doors
Your father, the writer would stare me down with his stare
And tell me what I would sell you for
I'd be the changed man, but he'd die the next morning
He'd fall in love, he'd be pushing down the doors

I bit my tongue and bid my time
I waited in the waiting line to tell you that I loved you the most
But I was a dead man
Another show, another fan
The minute hand was pushing down the doors
You wanted to love me, to push me to certainty
I stood there like the witness of a ghost
You wanted to tell me that I was the crazy one
Without a gun, I was pushing down the doors
Track Name: Animal Talk
Sometimes I wonder what the animals are talking about
I lay down and wonder if the hummingbird's a real bird
Or is it just another form of God
I sit down and listen to the lions in the zoo
I clean out the fishes, the elephant cages too
And maybe I'll be the one throwing shit with the monkeys
'Cause I don't know who I am anymore

I lay down and listen to my boss fire another
And I just wonder
When will my day come when I leave this place
I can see it in the koala's face
The snakes don't have a problem with me
I wish I was one of them

I don't care what you will think up
But I am just a liberty pack
I don't wanna listen to what your mother has to say this week
Maybe I'm just a baby
Maybe I'm just the crazy one
Maybe I'm the crazy one

Sometimes I wonder what the animals are talking about
And if they're talking behind my back
