1. hanging with your fashionable whores,
and i'm a wounded bird,
i will take your word.

Details of the War

2. there is nothing to see here people, keep moving on.

3. too many love affairs that stop on a dime,
i think it's time to make some changes 'round here.

4. i'm looking at myself, reflections of my mind.
it's just the kind of day to leave myself behind.

Tuesday Afternoon

5. one more notch i scratch to keep me thinkin' of you.

6. we'll chase food, money, and sex,
until we're satisfied.

We Are All Animals

7. well it's been ten years, and maybe more since i first set eyes on you.

8. well, you're my friend, and can you see?
many times, we've been out drinking,
many times we shared our thoughts.

I See a Darkness

9. when i was out of sorts,
it really meant a lot to be in someone else's thoughts.

How Kind Of You

10. when i'm down and my hands are tied,
i cannot reach a pen for me to draw the line.

Dreaming of You

11. you ain't got music if you ain't got the muscle, oh yeah.
Hit Rock Bottom

12. we've seen all those faces, we won't go looking for trouble.

13. i ran into a juke joint when i heard a guitar scream,
the notes were turning blue, i was dazing in a dream.

When Love Comes To Town

14. something always takes the place of missing pieces,
you can take and put together even though
you know there's something missing.

15. you are like a sunset to me,
you're all kinds of beautiful as you end my day.

Sunsets And Car Crashes

16. you've played the games all right,
but this was real life,
oh he never stood a chance, no.

Blow Your Whistle

17. in a cafe or sometimes on a crowded street,
i've been near you, but you never noticed me.

My Cherie Amore

18. i'm utterly depraved, let's do it on your terrace.
and the rain will catch the notches on our backs.

Ode to Serotonin

19. why do i miss you,
why did i kiss you.
because, you know we're gonna ride.

20. and sometimes when you're on, you're really fucking on.
and your friends sing along, and they love you.

A Better Son/Daughter

21. forever peering into the water,
returning back to the sea, under the sea foam.

22. would you go to war for me, baby,
would you cry for the weak,
and die for the peace of men.

23. i should have known at first,
that you would leave me hurt,
you had to try dessert.

24. let's look back, i can't remember when the last time anything i said meant anything.
By My Side

25. if this holds insignificance, i'll have the hearse follow the ambulance.
no medicine exists to make my lungs work again.

Best Mistake

26. she makes a subtle proposition,
i'm sorry love, i'll have to turn you down.

When the Sun Goes Down

27. you kill my heart just to see if i will rise,
above your anger and above your lies.

You Don't Love Me

28. we're overrated, uneducated,
it's not easy being so liberated,
so isolated, it's complicated,
being loved or being hated.

Call To Arms

29. you should not be angry,
if all she wants is your money,
oh, you should not be angry,
cause all you want is her body.

Love is a Fast Song

30. everyone would like to leave
eating and wearing the best in life,
but to really do so, my friends,
money's the only answer.

31. we found a new kind of dance in a magazine,
tried it out it's like nothing you ever seen.

The Way We Get By

32. before i put another notch in my lipstick case,
you better make sure you put me in my place.

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

33. she's upfront upshot upstart, up in every case.
the kind of girl that whispers thank god for you.

All You Got

34. hold on, hold on to your old ways,
or put off, put off every old face.

He Woke Me Up Again

35. and i still don't understand what this whole thing's about,
and all the words that you said are somehow stuck in my mouth.

It's A Hit

36. i struck the book with my last match,
the candle burned so soft and slow,
i felt the warmth and felt its glow.

Out Through the Curtain

37. these are her mountains and skies and she radiates,
and through history's rivers of blood she regenerates.

38. don't you love her as she's walkin out the door,
like she did one thousand times before.

Love Her Madly

39. i fear that the future is worse,
we have to give in to a hundred year curse.

If Only

40. but you, you have a mind full of a wonderment i'll never find.
I Was Never Young

41. and ghosts in fine suits will go dancing, with contracts in their hands, so alright i'll say goddamn.
Shhhhhh! I'm Listening to Reason

42. fear of pretty houses and their porches,
fear of biological responses.

Patriarch on a Vespa

43. come on baby i'm tired of talkin,
grab your coat and let's start a-walkin.

A Little Less Conversation

44. such a cute girl, i'm so jealous, i wish i looked exactly like her.
Staring Problem

45. i'll just tell you now,
cause i don't think you know the things you tried to kill,
i found a way to grow.

Tell You Now

46. drape yourself in greenery,
become part of the scenery,
into the past, we'll all descend,
we'll hope and pray that it won't end.

47. well what do you do when your world owes you something?
oh what is there to do, when the world owes you something new?

Last Of The Small Town Playboys

48. scratchin at my back door,
i hear you howl, but i don't listen no more.

Fever Dog

49. they warn you about killers and thieves in night,
i worry about cancer and living right,
but my mama never warned me about my own destructive appetite.


50. i'm smart not to play this game,
sinning, take me to the moon.
backyard, i'm gonna see you soon.
