Track Name: Sunday Morning
five days acting 2 days sleep
I'm a shepard with no sheep

The Holy Bible
The Book of Jobb
I read it wearing my starry robe

five kinds of bad luck
five kinds of fuck

rain failing in my coffee cup
things are looking up
oh oh what's it for
oh oh whats it for

going to the sign store; walk-ins welcome
please tell me what I should tell them

a man covered in human bites
selling me some neon lights

five kinds of bad luck
five kinds of fuck

rain failing in my coffee cup
things are looking up
oh oh what's it for
oh oh whats it for

my enemy
after church
is hanging with
the officers
he'd caught talking to the sky
asking about how and why

Sunday morning's coming down
Sunday morning's coming down
Sunday morning's coming down

rain failing in my coffee cup
things are looking up
oh oh what's it for
oh oh whats it for
Track Name: Beer in a Bag
friday night
berr in a bag
all alone
watching the people comming home

friday night
berer in my hand
already headed to the promise land

theres a woman leaning on a landpost there
her face is covered in her hair r r
and theres a man
over her shoulder
and that man's getting bolder bolder bolder

friday night
beer in a bag
city lights across my face
city lights across my face
city lights across my face

kids in a store with a homeless man
telling them about his plans
trying to make them understand
while they stare at his thyroid gland

a woman with a blond wig on
screeming about her only son
screaming at everyone
look at what you all have done

I take the subway at canal
down the stairs to the underground
i was lost and now im found
I know the meaning of every sound

I stripped to nothing
you responded in kind
and I saw you clearly for a time
you dont love me for my mind
you dont love us for our minds

friday night
beer in a bag
tunnel lights
across my face
tunnel lights
across my face
tunnel lights
across the face
of everyone
in that place
Track Name: Epilepsy/Touching Me Everywhere
t started with her hands in a fist
it think it always starts like this
her eyes were wide
like the sea
her eyes were wide
looking at me

the man she was with says sorry
nothing to see everybody
it happens all the time
it happens all the time
it happens all the time
it happens all the time

reminds me of the concert at webster hall
kids climbing on the walls
hands thumping
to the beat
in their eyes a waking sleep

it was there before weed
it was there before song
it was there all along
it was there all along
it was there along

you're touching me
everywhere
from my feet
to my hair
from the center of the sea
to the center of me
where the very first
is the very last
where I die of thirst
and rise from the dirt
again and again and again and again
and again and again and again and again

from the first there was dust to dust
then maybe rot and rust
then maybe flesh and bone
first you sin and then you atone

feeling good
feeling fine
it all goes round and round
and not in a line
and it's happening all the time
and it's happening all the time
and it's happening all the time

you're touching me everywhere
from my feet to my hair (x3)
Track Name: Arranged Marraige
we had cakes
we had wine
we had cakes
we had wine
but I knew the truth every time I looked up
we had cakes
we had wine
but I was married under a bad sign

I vernerated the saints
I convered myself in paint
I wore
a rosary
I let the system enter me
I wanted things to be easy

the church
the church
the church is on a hill
I'll be married until it all burns down

We had cakes
we had wine
we had cakes
we had wine

It's only been a month
but I see how it is
uh, oh, so
a lifetime of this?


hey, husband
you gave me a name
you filled me with shame
I take every chance
to do you the same
to do you the same
to do you the same


We had cakes
we had wine
we had cakes
we had wine

ten years in
the sin continues to win
whatever we were
on that day at first
we're much less
than that now

We had cakes
we had wine
we had cakes
we had wine

fourty years on
my children are all gone
to the states, to the gulf
and, I've had enough
Track Name: Did You Win
as long as you take care of me
im everything I want to be
maybe...
I'll have children

I don't mind the ambient noise
I only listen to your voice
maybe....
I'll stay inside

ready?
do you have everything?
did you win?
am I asking too soon?
am I asking too soon?
am I asking too soon?

you made it very clear what I should do
and that you don't really care if I go with you
but still....
I wanted to be your favorite

I think for a while I was running in front
but I'm finally one of those
who've just given up
I don't believe your lies, anymore...

ready?
do you have everything?
did you win?
am I asking too soon?
am I asking too soon?
am I asking too soon?
