Track Name: The Dark Heart's Out
I smart , I’m stinging all over now
Well some parts are ringing all through the night
Destroying our second sight
Monotony swallows up the light
Destruction For
Kill it all
The Dark Hearts Out
Let it Fall
You hear it call

The Khomeini says, The Khomeini says
There’s a Dark Heart holding you
The Khomeini says, The Khomeini says
There’s a Dark Heart holding you
You hear it call
You hear it call

I can’t switch back to a former thought
Well entrance long brute stint of cooling off
Destroying our second thoughts
Monotony swallows up the lost
Destruction for
Till it all
The spark don’t doubt
Don’t build a wall
You hear it call

The Khomeini says, The Khomeini says
There’s a dark heart holding you,
The Khomeini says, The Khomeini says
There’s a dark heart holding you
You hear it call
You hear it call
Track Name: Go Cat Fall
He’s a run down go cat fall, I’m the sit down stay cat small
Run away dear, away dear, make your house cat stray
Let’s be here dear and clear dear, roll away, roll away the leaves

You can’t keep a dog on a rolling swollen train, could creep a dog on a crawling cargo plane
Come here dear here dear, your dog’s not in the way
Let’s be here dear and clear dear, roll away, roll away the leaves

Keep a hamster trap ‘neath a cozy kitchen couch, keep quite low, you’ll scare away the mouse
Set a trap here, twice there, well four we have the house
Let’s be here dear and clear dear, roll away, roll away the leaves

Keep a corn­fed pony on a sixth wishing string, cause it’s tiny you gotta tighten up the ring
Pull the reins tight, not all might keep a gentle hand
Not all bite, that’s quite right, roll away, roll away the leaves
Pull the reins tight, not all might keep a gentle hand
Not all bite, that’s quite right, well roll away, roll away the leaves
Pull the reins tight, not all might keep a gentle hand
Not all bite, that’s quite right, roll away, roll away the leaves
Roll away, roll away the leaves
Track Name: Hundred MIles In
I know you’re kind of strange cause you’re not really into the normal stuff
You know you’re kind of weird when you’re not really into humans that much but
If you’re gonna leave take me with you, I’m your son please
If you’re gonna stay I’m gonna leave, write you letters......

Two hundred feet up hundred miles in
The earth forgets her spin
Ain’t it a sin when you been not listening

When you go which wife you gonna curse your second or your first
I know you love the blue globe but is she really coming back, you really think you know
I don’t blame you, I could get away from some people too
A message on fire, do you stay at sea level, pack your bags

Hundred miles in two hundred feet up
You’re not out of luck
You’ve got corn to shuck, make fuel for the truck

Is she really coming back
Is she really coming back
Do you stay at sea level
If you’re gonna stay
Do you stay at sea level

Two hundred feet up hundred miles in
The earth forgets her spin
Ain’t it a sin when you been not listening
In your hip flask, no matter what you have it’s not enough to last
Track Name: oosi Strikes Out in Hollywood
Burt Bacharach’s got nothing on you kid
We heard about the cameos and the work you did
Don’t go fessing up to things you claim are dead
Everything that’s gone must be put to bed

Your concourse is rippling like a bright red train
Under swollen sun in a steaming rain
In a desperate cold kicking of that turkey heading south
Silence is the treatment for your mouth

You can only turn a handle of an unlocked door
Your misremembered lines makes your delivery a bore
Is that you laughing or the way you choke
What’s the point of fooling if you ain’t in on the joke

Kirk Cameron is a hack compared to you
If you don’t get that part then you’re getting screwed
I’d sell your pictures at the beach in a booth
Believe your brother is a pillar of the truth

Everything about you is just screaming chairs
On the music off the lights we’ll just stand and stare
If I remind you of that son you never had
I hope that doesn’t leave you feeling bad

You can only turn a handle of an unlocked door
Your misremembered lines makes your delivery a bore
Is that you laughing or the way you choke
What’s the point of fooling if you ain’t in on the joke
Track Name: Pittsburgh
Grey cast old Pittsburgh, father of the steaming coal
To relay what’s misheard disingenuines the soul
Leaves the knowing for the cold
Breaks the bottle and the bowl
These are things that I’ve heard on my way to or from lazing bout or getting done
In Pittsburgh, I’ve never seen the sun in Pittsburgh
Track Name: How the Wind Loves You
A cornered black lake in an angry heart
For no one’s sake but to tear you apart
The more you fight, well the more you lose
You dim your sight when you swallow the blues

You wake up now you could cut your loss
The no man’s land seems impossible to cross
The more you stare through the cracks in the night
Less chance you’ll be awake at first light

Oh the wind curses you when it’s the mess that the squirrels make that bothers you
Oh how the wind loves you when you open the doors and let it blow right through
When you open the doors and let it blow right through

I can’t stand the days without you here
I get in the way, will I forget to care
The more you’re here, well the more I am too
I’ll let you steer with what’s inside of you

Oh how the wind curses you when it’s the mess that the squirrels make that bothers you
Oh how the wind loves you when you open the doors and let it blow right through
When you open the doors and let it blow right through
When you open the doors and let it blow right through
When you open the doors and let it blow right through
Track Name: Spare the Wicked
You can’t get redeemed with the silk of your skin
I won’t be redeemed if I gave up on my sin
I find no redemption at the end of this pen
Like the soft slow redemption at the bottom of my gin

Spare the twisted if you spare the saints, spare the no ones spare the ain’ts
Spare the whiskey if you’re sparin’ the wine, spare the wicked spare the blind
Spare the wicked spare the blind

You’re a hungry ghost with a taste for your past
Your appetites are backwards, you better change course fast
A quick dry wash keeps a clean glass
Where a holy rolling ocean needs a solid sailed mast

What if you were to make it through your blasted ghost dive
Come out the other end healthy and alive
No one is spared on this planet that we spin
The unfortunate redemption’s at the bottom of my gin

Spare the twisted if you spare the saints, spare the no ones spare the ain’ts
Spare the whiskey if you’re sparin’ the wine, spare the wicked spare the blind
Spare the twisted if you spare the saints, spare the no ones spare the ain’ts
Spare the whiskey if you’re sparin’ the wine, spare the wicked spare the blind
Spare the wicked, spare the blind
Track Name: Houghton
Houghton in the snow and wind
Stronger than it’s ever been
Drawbridge, drawbridge, drawbridge
Boating in my row and yak
Looking up at the back
Of drawbridge, drawbridge, drawbridge
Heading up to your bridge house
Heading up to your bridge house
Heading up to your bridge house home
Heading up to your bridge house
Heading up to your bridge house
Heading up to your bridge house home
Track Name: Strange Dream
Bed and breakfast, we were all held captive you didn’t know it
Maybe you weren’t and it was just me
I was so scared, I hid all my clothes in a shed
Stopped back to grab them when we fled
We ran down to a road, through the woods off we drove
Goodbye, goodbye strange dream, strange dream

I think I killed him, slapped him in the face with a knife
I wasn’t really trying but I think I took his life
I was so scared, I grabbed the first thing that I saw
Smacked that fucker full on in the jaw
My brain, bye brain, my brain, bye brain
Goodbye, goodbye strange dream, strange dream

Heard some whispers, somewhere down to my left
Couldn’t really hear, craned my neck and held my breath
Who’s talking, there’s no one here, it’s just you oh my dear
Goodbye, goodbye strange dream, strange dream
Track Name: Borrowed Heart
He’s coming in to put pressure on his man
Needs a bride with a borrowed heart, boiled words from the Koran
Can you hold back the rhythm of my fists
Hold me down, I kick and spit, deliver me a kiss

And I say Oh, what if she hates me, she might think I’m crazy
She won’t want to be with me
And you say Oh, What if she loves you, been thinking of you
Wants you around anyway

Put me back in the ground my rest has been disturbed
Shouldn’t be walking around out here, shouldn’t be mincing words
Hold me up push me back I’m dying here of thirst
My brain needs you like a ghost to relieve me of the worst

And I say Oh, What if she hates me, she might think I’m crazy
She won’t want to be with me
And you say Oh, what if she loves, been thinking of you
Wants you around anyway
Wants you around anyway
Wants you around anyway

Wake her up just to dig into her chest
Keep her from the dirt with another’s heart inside her breast
And if love ain’t born inside that heart
Would I give up on the character, keep up with the part

And I say Oh, What if she hates me, she might think I’m crazy
She won’t want to be with me
And you say Oh, what if she loves, been thinking of you
Wants you around anyway ....
Track Name: Toronto
Oh Toronto, northern we go
Yes Toronto, sometimes covered in snow
It’s cold in the winter, but we’re here in the summer
It’s sometime after dinner, and you know that I want her
In Toronto, why didn’t she go with me to Toronto
Track Name: Bound to be Sick
Don’t let your chest cave in and leave you in doubt
The storm rolling in just a storm rolling out
Blow over blow over you’re making my head sore
Blow over cold cover the skies have grown thick

When the heart goes remiss and skin’s gone thick
We’re bound to miss all the things that should stick
Come over come over I’m bound to get lonely
Come over Maid Mary I’m bound to get sick

I guess it’s best to have and not want than to have and want
But you see my point is that it gets so violent inside sometimes we lose our feet

The way you split hairs who would speak their mind
Anyone who cares well the walls up they find
Cold shoulder cold shoulder, stop eating at your middle
Cold shoulder foul roller, spit out your pits

A case in point is the way I handled you
Nothing I could say could remotely ring true
Do over do over it’s bound to be painful
Do over my winter it’s bound to make me sick

I guess it’s best to have and not want than to have and want
But you see my point is that it gets so violent inside sometimes we lose our feet

The heart tries to hold all the pains of the past
Grow old we go I hope the pains forget to last
Bulldozer bulldozer stop running through the hedgerow
Bulldozer damn rumbler we’re growing it thick
Give over give over everything must go now
Give over to get over what’s been making us sick
Give over to get over what’s been making us sick
Give over to get over what’s been making us sick
