Track Name: Klingon Advice
against head and all wisdom / I wanna get you out of my system / which organ to rely on / to keep good love from going wrong / which damn limb can tell you / what’s worth holding on to / my heart won’t hold me back / my guts won’t hold me back / your hands can’t get a hold / of a heart in a goldfish bowl / where you’d expect a heart beating / you find a supersupermassive black hole / that hole is sucking in / every loving thing you’ve ever known
Track Name: Son of a Gun
those who drink to forget / are asked to pay their share before / used to be a safe bet at the dance-off / before I retired from the disco floor / I didn’t mind getting old when I was young / I was just as blind, deaf and dumb / when I was twenty-one / I was a fucking son of a gun / by the end I learned / that I was right from the start / but you’ll always remember / everything you’ve learned by heavy heart
Track Name: Chandeliers
let’s shake up the chandeliers / sir, if I just get what I deserve / seems I don’t deserve too well / a penny saved is a penny earned / someone’s gonna get their fingers burned / sir, I did the math, look what I just learned / when your wage can feed a town / makes it a whole town’s concern / you got too much cash to burn
Track Name: Restraining Order
I want you to / fold me up and hide me / in the pocket of your blue jeans / I want you to / sit straight and reproduce me / as I talk sweet talk, seduce me / I want you to / steal my kidneys when I’m sleeping / and shake me to the bones / I want you to worry terribly ‘bout me / don’t move a single foot away from me / I want you to / hug me at the bus stop / have my photo on your desktop / I want you to / take me to the last stop / till the driver asks us out
Track Name: Epilog
stick your head in a honey jar / you’re stuck in it ‘cause you pushed too far / it’s full of piss and shit and you regret / it’s bitter but this is what you get / everything that I believe / I must feel between my teeth / head out the door to find what you love / let it kill you in a velvet glove / store clerk doesn’t give a shit why you’re so upset / it’s bitter but this is exactly what you get
Track Name: Knave of Hearts
in a meadow just mown twice / you’ll find lions next to mice / in a meadow just mown twice / caterpillar’s bad advice / coming home to lose / fell in love with the knave of hearts / you know he’s stealing royal tarts / grinning like a Cheshire cat / our worlds lie poles apart
Track Name: John Paul Jones
John Paul Jones / up all night with John Paul Jones / they come and go / come and go but you ramble on / ramble on/ John Paul Jones, I ramble on / sometimes you get / sometimes you get, sometimes you get got / who’s got your back / you tell me you got my back / John Paul Jones / back and forth, John Paul Jones / sing it / sing it / sing it till it’s cheap
Track Name: It Takes Two To Tango
it takes two to tango / and just one lone soul to waltz / I dance the broken limbo / and choke on your mother’s butterscotch / the day you kiss me on the lips / I’ll call the New York Times and tell them all about it / the day we’re joined at the hips / ...
Track Name: Emma's Shoes
I ran off in Emma’s shoes / heaven shook / but the sky didn’t move / I’m off the hook / and my knees are black and blue / a million schilling look / and my heart sank to my boots / so I ran off in Emma’s shoes / heaven shook / but the sky didn’t move / cherry pie / more than I could chew / a million schilling look / and my heart sank to my boots
Track Name: Cat on Fire
I threw your shoes out the door and down the staircase / I took your car keys and fed them to the fish / I stole your laundry and hid it in the garden / it’s just us tonight, I thought / so I set your cat on fire / I phoned your doctor and cancelled all appointments / we made love in front of Klingons / I shot your telly with a ray gun / then my temper got the best of me / so I set your cat on fire
Track Name: Bosnian Pyramids
all my stories start with a red wheel barrow / school boys in Visoko dig for their Bosnian pharaoh / way older than in Egypt but almost unknown / they grow higher overnight / our pyramids back home / we’re dressed for the weather / in our Sunday rags / we’re attracted by uncanny glare / let me, oh let me take you where / ships fly low / make sure you bring your flash light / and a spare battery / I’ll meet you at midnight / in the cornfields by the factory / have your cell charged / maybe they wanna phone home / until the sun’s up / we’ll be on our own
