Track Name: Blues Reefer
We're here to conclude this lengthy rivalry. I'm going to put my foot down, where do you stand on me? You're so cruel, it's so true. And now it's an uptown shootout with you, a knock down drag-out with you. Those who can't-do do nothing and look pretty. I tried to believe you my friend but the fashion it came between it. I thought we would be 'till the end but the fashion it came between us. I sentence you to a life in the scene where the boys are dumb and the girls are mean.
Track Name: Worry Stone
He's the poor wordsmith, misunderstood. Master of the tongue, of poverty and love. And you've had years just to figure out how this thing works. But still you shirk. You are my past. Secret, sad and catching up with me fast. You're tying me down to the dirt and the grass. I'm your diamond ring. A joy forever and a beautiful thing. I am your man, At my faults you laugh and tell them it's just the way I am. I've have years just to figure out how your things work but still I shirk. And the vitamin D, you say you only want it from me and there's never another to be yours. I'm your worry stone and you'll never be alone.
Track Name: City Boys
Why can't I say that one thing that would explain everything about me? Why can't I say it. It's on the tip of my tongue. You would know what you'd guessed for years. When I wig out better clear the room. Better run and hide. Better grab a broom to defend yourself from my fury now. Better run now. My Dad was in a bad way so I kissed him on the cheek. He said "Son, don't you do it again" but it cooled him for a week and how! When dad wigs out better clear the room better run and hide. Better grab a broom to defend yourself from that furrowed brow. Better run. Better run now. I'll show you how to throw a fit. First you raise your voice, then I raise my fist.
Track Name: Enemies Bad, Friends Good
Look up. Look down. All around. Gee, what a clown! Let's take the show downtown and we'll invite everyone around. You should not drink but the drinks are on the house. You should not smoke but I grew this stuff myself. Go home, because love starts in your home. If you live alone call me up and we'll roam. While you're down there you're a big big friend. We're big women and big men. While you're down there if you would be so kind. And if you can do anything just to make my day just a little bit easier I would be happy to return the favor. I would bend over backwards. While you're up there...We'll sing along to the songs that we know and fake the parts to the ones that we don't. We'll kiss a lot on the way to the car and call mom when you get home. Remember when you're in the mood, "Enemies bad, friends are good." Remember all the times you've had.
Track Name: Most of All
It's a little piece of heaven when I'm soused up and keeping my hands busy. With one hand in the air, the other hand is where? Guess where. When I was young, maybe nine or ten I caught a stranger in the bowling alley bathroom smoking. What was he doing there? And what did he mean, "Beware?" Since I've seen him I've seen it all. Am I getting better? I'd like to think I am. O my god here it comes again, that jism sweeps me away. There are many things in life that I regret but most of all I wish that I had never smoked a cigarette.
Track Name: Zepty
Well you're bopping along to the song in your head. It says "You're the one tiger, go and get 'em." And the way you speak is so condescending. Soulless and like it's my duty to listen. A born leader? You don't even qualify. I see you on the television mudslinging. Save the sarcasm for the stand-up comedians. This is a disgrace. You're not addressing real problems. You're born to money. The good life. Daddy pulls the strings that get you by. I'm thinking of the future of this precious earth and if you have the wherewithal to see it's worth. I'm thinking of my future home and family. Step outside I'll show you what I mean. Don't forget me. I'm watching. And I'm onto you though you've got me. The sound of one hand slapping. What, do you think you send the clouds away? No way. We're in the know and we're laughing at you.
