Track Name: Left Shoe Right Shoe
Baby take your hands off
Send them over here
Left shoe, right shoe, no shoes, no shoes
I'm so glad you are near

Maybe we can go fishing?
I'll let you reel them in
& I'll just sit back & relax, relax
Baby throw my ankles in

Maybe I myself should jump right in?
Give myself a kick
Give my legs a swim
Track Name: The Most Popular Mister
What's it like living next door to the most popular mister?

He's got a voice like a trumpet
& a wrist watch that sings
& you aint ever gonna need nothin
after them promises he brings.

He's got a thirteen part greeting
& a sixty watt chain
& he sleeps with his eyes
beneath cucumber rings.

Dont tell me.
What's it like living next door to the most popular mister?

He's got the hands of a damsel
& the stress of king
He's in charge of a whole fleet
of employees

He's got the bite of grizzly
but the stomach of a beak
& he'll wash you up with hopes and dreams
just to get you through the week.

Don't tell me.
What's it like living next door to the most popular mister?
Track Name: Poor Tom
Poor Tom eats the swimming frog
The fury in his heart is blind and burrowing
The foul fiend eats the beetle wing
The lovely lady sings and howls him back to sleep

While the old rat and the ditch dog drink
From standing pools of spirit queens, ooh.

The common seer, dead so many years
The cheap trick auctioneers invest their innocence
The sickness spreads, swims with fins of lead
Poor wretches that depend on constant gathering

While the old rat and the ditch dog drink
From their swimming pools with diamond clinks, ooh.
Track Name: What Kind Neighbors
Well an ordinary man
was walking down the road
When he fell into the hands
of a desperate clan
They stripped him of his things
right down to his clothes
Smashed his face with lead
and left him for dead

Preacher sees the man
sees the blood in the sand
From the corner of his eye
as he passes right by
And the servant of the state
does the same as the priest
He pretends not to see
a man struggling to breathe

What kind neighbors are these?
What kind of man drops
the hand of the dying
For a handshake
with heartache and greed?
Track Name: Why Oh Why You
Well your daughter's pulse is pale again
And the fear has caught you off your guard
In love with your intentions
Not ashamed of what you are
But before you tell me different
Before you tell me the truth
Admit that one way or the other
Means no matter what you do

And its a shame
You built a wounded moat
Around your baby's brain
And its a shame
You left her favorite
English books out in the rain
Ain't it a hard line to choose?
You say its not up to me
Don't cut me loose
I L-O-V-E why oh why you?

Now your daughter walks with wherewithal
As she calls out for revenge
She's got them ready gents now here she comes
With their tongues cut out in jest
But no sleep will bring her victory
As no land with bring her rest
Confess that one way or the other
Means whatever happens next

And its a shame
You built a wounded moat
Around your baby's brain
And its a shame
You left her favorite
English books out in the rain
Ain't it a hard line to choose?
You say its not up to me
Don't cut me loose
I L-O-V-E why oh why you?

Well I'm sorry my integrity should bleed
To stain the very honor that you need
Well you have to much dear lady but to know
Honest mean are comforts for your cause

Bound by the sky that hangs above me
After the fighters the kings
Spared by the tide, taken by escape
In the land where doubt is death and life is pain
Spared by the hands of the suffering
Spared by the eyes of the meek
Spared by the strike of the outlaw
Spared by the prince of peace.
Track Name: Barbara the Organ Donor
The untimely death of Ted
Gave his orphaned son feel sads
Robert he's a good boy
But sometimes a man needs help and rest
He's feeling better and but
Have you seen his friend, Sam?

Sam comes from a wicked mom
Pulled down by a quicksand arm
But when Gayle gets sober
She starts thinking over shit long past
She's feeling better
As she tips her closest friend, Luanne.

Luanne works the 5th St lamps
Saving hope for her sick aunt
Barbara the organ donor
She left her right lung and her last two packs
But had she quit sonner
She'd be laughing and not lowered to bed

Oh and maybe I want what I write to be seen
By a select class of nocturnal being, huh?
And yes you can play it soft with your luxury things
But I got the lead role in the sting, hmm.
Track Name: Sergeant Shark
His name is Patrick
He wears a light blue smock
He's walking his dogs
In the earliest morning

Ones name is Muffler
Ones name is Sergeant Shark
While Patrick stumbles behind
With the stones rolling under him

Why do we grow old?
And why must we die sooner than told?
Just once I...
But that was the last time I heard from him

They walk long ways and back again
Soft slippers don't need no laces
As Sergeant and Muffler dissolve
Into shapes that he's chasing

His heart weighs a ton again
White pain crushing through his senses
A wet nose grazes his neck
As his soul is released, yeah

Why do we grow old?
And why must we die sooner than told?
Just once I...
But that was the last I ever heard from him

As Sergeant makes his escape
Muffler sticks with his friend
Amazed that it's ending
Track Name: On Wrath and Punishment
On wrath and punishment
Oh God give me a breath of air
I'm quaking in my boots
But my dog is just lying there
Well if he don't seem worried
I don't see why I should care
'Cause he eats, shits, fucks, sleeps
Gets sick, gets buried
Like any other millionaire

Prophets and prophecy
I told you I would meet you here
Let's turn war into winning
Then we'll all float up into the air
Well there's no need for worry
There's no wonder why we're here
We'll just eat, shit, fuck, sleep
Get sick, get buried
'Cause we're gonna live forever, yeah.
Track Name: Captives of a Furious Nation
No I will not deliver this letter
To the cur whose breath I hate
His body is hardly any better
And he relies on rotten faith

But he comes off so charming and able
He's a carcass if you ask me
Lord even my niece thinks he's something
But I am still uncertain

Delivery from evil
For the solitary people
Saviors from ourselves
Sing a song of peace
For every bird and bee
There ain't anybody else

Yes I flatly refuse
to take part in your funeral methods
I will not spend my life
Plucking words from the mouth of a grave

And I don't see the use
In every report being perfect
I will not bide my time
Watching only the corrupt remain

But you can be sure that it's true love
The youth will retrieve from the valleys
What the hideous and decent
Defy, deplore, and defame

We are captives of a furious nation
We are captives by any other name

Delivery from evil
For the solitary people
Saviors from ourselves
Sing a song of peace
For every bird and bee
There ain't anybody else
Track Name: A Lifetime of Grief
Oh Lord don't let it be over now
Oh Lord don't let it be me
I'm sick but I've tried to keep you alive
To make up for a lifetime of grief

No it don't matter much what you've come for
And it don't matter when you might leave
Through thickness and thin, through glory and sin
Through the hearts of the minds that you reach

"The light!" cries the man in the valley
"The dirt!" cries the man underneath
The earth is the pen that we're all living in
And heaven is just some other street

Oh Lord don't let it be over
Oh Lord don't let it be me
I'm sick but I've tried to keep you alive
