Track Name: Abandon
I can stand after a year and fall after a day
If a man calls me a coward, boy, I’ll kick his teeth in in my mind

I’m soaked in mud my vision’s dim
I can’t get clean I can’t dry out
If worry was a ladder I’d be home safe with you

I have drunk out in the noise and smoked in quiet rooms
Is the ringing in my ears the ever present voice of love
Get out of my head old man, I’ve growl enough on my own
Our desperation isn’t beautiful but here it is so let’s say it is

Click-clack my pet there is another way
as she does the dishes
These interstitial moments between building home and building bridge
Track Name: Unannounced
O you battled stay good natured
Crush your bad ones you’re still good, still good
And you push on the wheel for the sake of the work
On the chance you’ll arrive unannounced

O climb on top so good looking
Too bad nothing is what you’re pushing
You know down there nothing’s down there, how could there be?
You know down there, there’s no truth down there
But you hope we won’t know if it goes unannounced

Give it up, baby, throw it back
Make a fuss, baby, break a sweat
Track Name: Pony
Indeed I come and do I say I come I
Into the home
And in the ringing bells I widen, you sweeten

I know your wind
“Oh just a breath” you say you “to calm your fear”
Bring back the child I lost I wrinkled up my brow

O the grown man O the down-home
O the pony in the stable stays

So solid we say it is but not so
I called it, I called to you across the cosmos, a city exhausted

O the grown man O the down-home
O the pony in the stable stays

O through the clouded window and in the darkened mirror see
To go too far To burn the sheets To feel no faith - AhhAhh
To close the door and wash the sheets To tell the whole truth - AhhAhh

O the pony O the down-home
O the grown man in the stable stays
Track Name: Wicked Crush
I feel ready what fine timing
Sit or standing, Was or wasn’t
O my my just my size
Would my woman fit my mind

Wreaths and records, King of Feast
In her parlor in her scissors
Ah te amo! Stomp that kick
Voila Dynamo

Son of heart Beast of own Man of war Girl next door
Cattle prod Cymbal crash Thumb of god Wicked crush

Sugar sea Waking waters
Glory be Fate has shot us
Out her mouth In a nest
With a secret in her vest
Track Name: Modern Skin
Fare thee well, modern kin, I don’t push the modern skin
When it breaks out in the cold come back for more

Lets not talk or theorize, I can show I can surprise
Pull the curtain back ta-da, here is that bang
Track Name: 40 Winks
Saw enough to chatter all the teeth in my mouth
Shook enough to shatter all the glass in the house

Lying down til I can stand up

I sought out the bottom til I lost my light til my skin turned white
Come as near to a kind of peace as I can short of the bomb

It’s up to the cracking point we’re up to the point of cracking

I got rolled by all institutions money, god, mwamerica
Think it out dungeon priest work it out work the beast

It’s up to the cracking point we’re up to the point of cracking
Track Name: Groundwire
Could I sleep at night, no longer in my sweat
If I take the stronger will and bring out what I hid
o, o, o

They cut off my coat, she sewed it up again
What a signal to send up to remind me what I’ve been
o, o, o

Help me to remember if I in fear recant
How we charged a hundred hills with nothing but our hands, nothing in our hands

The grave or a cave?
Could I be waking still?
Out in the sun my love everything is changed
Track Name: Barnburner
Big fakes big fakers fat babies, alright
We’ll be ok when you’re gone
Halos big trophies death rattles, alright
We’ll be ok when you’re gone

Ooh, let’s just shake it off
Ooh, let’s just shake it off

I cut out, French exit. This coat’s too tight
We’ll be ok when you’re gone
Mei shi, Mei guan xi, No one’s in love with you
We’ll be ok when you’re gone

Ooh, let’s just shake it off
Ooh, let’s just shake it off

Voici barnburner! Too many barns, alright
Bad faith bad blood Hot Future, alright
Track Name: Big Enough To Cook
Sugar comes to those with their toes in the water
With hands on their thighs, with their axe at the root
Come on suckers, give me something good
--Nothing big enough to cook

Strong now, man, step out on the ledge
Your mama ain’t here to treat you like you’re sick
Is it more, wouldn’t more, maybe more will suffice
--O, nothing doing.

In the pot, on the stove, in the fire, under the knife
On the hook, off the hook, am I, my wife?
When I’m alone my mind is a vice
--Nothing cooking, til the morning
Track Name: Sooner Or Later
Sooner or later ice will form around you
Sooner or later policies will come through
You’re gonna fly too
You’re gonna die too

Sooner or later we’ll be a hard rock
Sooner or later it’ll be bedtime
Bedtime

I did a new portrait of the extremist
with the look in his eyes
Tip of the icing
Swallowing, coughing out on the frontier

Sooner or later tenderness is a sick broom
Sooner or later there is very little change
Maybe we’ll find truth
Maybe it’s all true

I’m in a trance old friend,
Feeling a feeling and watching it go by
Sitting in silence
Thinking of an inside joke while the nurse shuffles by
Track Name: Congratulations Lack Earth
And don’t be such an old man don’t be so depressing this is how things are now
All plastic totally digital all virtual “ooh, the cool water is all around you”
I could not I could not I could not I could not

Til we’re living alone again are we living alone again
Could I be satisfied with cold imaginings

Was it crime was it your modern pride
If you take a picture I’ll show you my better side
“ooh the cool water is all around you”
I could not I could not I could not I could not

Til we’re living alone again are we living alone again
Could I be satisfied with cold imaginings
I could not I’ve no idea I could pretend but I could not
Track Name: What Did You Eat
Fall asleep, kid
Fall asleep, what did you eat?
When I try to fall asleep I feel it pushing me again It’s watching me again
