Track Name: Texas Desert Rose
Texas Desert Rose

Amarillo, you armored armadillo
muy tranquillo rollin down the window
in the drivin sun
texas desert plain

where do we go when we gots nowhere to be?
how free is easy?
how easy is free?
when the nights get ugly
and your money's gone again

simplify, let love die
simply fly out of sight
slow it grows

texas desert rose

Amarillo, you armored armadillo
estoy contento wherever we go
in the drivin sun
texas desert pain

simplify, let love die
simply fly out of sight
slow it grows

texas desert rose
Track Name: Waxy Moon Pie
Waxy Moon Pie

you have left your light on
I can see inside
where has your family gone?
have they up and died?

died

is there any food to speak of
behind your cupboard door?
I have brought sweet plum and olive
if you should want for more

lies

you have just got to roll it for your lovely sake
letting go of all you know of a heavenly ache

pride

oh, letting go

we all have a hard-on
for the sacred path
will you cum inside me
witness the aftermath?

flies

sweet mothers of mercy
your shredded mule awaits
where has your ability gone
to separate what you mean from the shit that you say?

try
why?
be surprised

you have just got to roll it for your lovely sake
grabbing hold of all you know of a healthy escape
you have got to know your own strength for that of an ox
hidden in the wastebasket 'neath the waxy moon pie

hi
bye
hi and bye
Track Name: No Rival
No Rival

how do you do?
why are you here?
will you ever come to know
the reason being and being reasonable?

like he who hath no rival in his town

throw it away, throw it away
throw it away for me honey babe
seventeen dreams and the secrets i keep for you

from he who think he hath no rival in his town

plain as the day
dark as the dawn
some lovers are clearly gone
yet live on in haunted memory

memory, memory
feel free to fail me this time
leave me be
lonesome as a loathsome sound

like he who hath no rival in his town
but always with that rival in his mind
jealousy and envy by his side

long in love, faith has gone away
long in love, faith will come again

and how do you choose who to be near to
when you're so far away?
makin faces at the water in your summer gown

now is now and never is questionable
will you ever come to know
how to keep your actions from coming into question again?

be he who hath no rival in his town
holding in the dimmest din around
bleeding for your joy and lying down
Track Name: Lay With Love
Lay With Love

I wanna cry
I wanna die
I want to lay with love

I wanna wake
without the ache
I wanna take your drug

not some radical new-agey sebbatical
cant we try and keep it simple?
as a matter of etiquette im not letting it
bring down any other people

yeah, in light of our mistakes
lets make it right
whatever it takes

I wanna long
I wanna pine
though you will not be mine

and if I am wrong
I do not mind
I want to lay with love

oh, in the morn
when you are gone
well I could lay for days

but I am torn
for there is light
pouring through the haze

light
aw yeah thats right
I know you've heard it before
but im singin it tonight

yeah, in light of our mistakes
lets make it right
whatever it takes

I want to lay with love
Track Name: All Rise
All Rise

we have wanted for the day to come
a morning more for everyone
it is in your hands it is on your tongue
it is in your eyes how bad it stung

the feces he flung, a bee that hum
an accordion ringin like your darkened lung
yeah the air you're breathin it aint never been in season
but tell me you are teasin with your turnin to run

all rise

we have wanted more than our meager sum
a mourning more for those who have gone
it is in our hands it is on our tongue
it is in the mind how bad it stung

the feces he flung, that shit talkin man
how he could say them things i can't understand
cause the love i'm feelin i dont ever need a reason
so tell me you are teasin with your turnin to run

all rise

hold tight
backseat lover, nothin permanent
is that the way you treat her?
soon you'll wind up under water

all rise
Track Name: Shock n Awe
Shock n Awe

you are a princess
that is your complex
behold the duchess
a hag in a white dress

growing old, giving in
turn your back on everything that could have been
turn your back and leave me here

in shock n awe

you ride the blue line
to get to your art career
I search for returnables
in return for a ride with you

huffing mold, swishing gin
lash my back with everything that could have been
lash my back and bleed-out here

in shock n awe

I taste your aged tongue
I spy your eye
wander from man to man
wondering, "why"?

pools in the river
my crystalline Caroline
coos from the hayloft
making me fever blind

marscapone, lemon skin
all the bitterness we are holding in
all the tenderness you once showed me then

we're here for nothing but
to blow the line
cut up before our time
made for to waste away

cement the border babe
paint all your language grey
you may do it or not
regret it either way
Track Name: Make it Sweeter
Make it Sweeter

wanna pick a little delicate flower
one that come up after rain
don't you know you give me the feeling?
so good you know I can't complain

midnight fallin, sky is cryin
everytime you go away

wanna lick a little candied apple
pick it up when it fall from the tree

and even if our fruit goes sour
we can always add a little more sugar

make it sweeter

midnight fallin, skies wide open
ever-changin troubled feelin
all the sweetness in this weakness

every time you go away
Track Name: Do You? (I Do)
Do You? (I do)

wade into the golden rye
fade into your final sigh
and don't forget the names
of the people here who came to say goodbye

giving chase to higher highs
leaving space for all surprise
oh, and don't forget the names
of the people who became what they despise

lies

leave alone the Texas Rose
stay at home and let it close
oh, and don't forget the names
and the days we threw away exchanging blows

find from where the nectar flows
drink until your breathing slows
oh, and don't forget the names
of the people here who drank that fatal dose

lows, lows, lows
lies, lies, lies

do you?
I do

I killed a blackbird and cut out the heart
spilled its blood upon some grim withholdings
I didn't want it to hurt, you didn't need it to cry

I held a raw flaw up to the light
threw its brood into the fire unfolding
what a wondrous spit what a wonderful sight

in the beginning it was singin' and ease
we pleased each other even in the morning
I didn't want it to change I didn't want it to die

we live to give in to the meatier parts
the ones that weigh upon your backbone moanin'
I didn't want it to hurt but I was too late to try
Track Name: Monica
Monica

are you showing me your best side?
only lonely when you don't get sunlight in your eye
only lonely when you won't try

to show it all to me
and do it all the time

stick your tongue out, say "ah"
am I skilled enough to be your doctor 'tra la la'
am I built enough to be your builder

and give ya shelter
for all kinds of weather

don't leave me all alone
too terrified to move
tell me can you lead me to the light?

now that you have gone
I won't know what to do
but buy into goodbye and cry out for you

the truth you leave behind
a shadow by your side
together we will wade into the light
Track Name: Bottle o Wine
Bottle o Wine

covered in rind
callin out from the inside
nothin to chase
but a bottle o wine

bottle o wine
cruel shape of the grapevine
I can escape through a bottle o wine

covered in lye
stayin in callin out, "why oh why"?
everything tastes
like a bottle o wine

bottle o wine
cruel shape of the grapevine
hiding your face 'hind
losing your grace with the passing of time

I been wonderin' why
why shouldn't I?
I see a look in your eye
I see a serious side

covered in slime
but cleanin' up in my down-time
Puffy and Mase
and a bottle o wine

bottle o wine
token ironic punchline
and a casual decline

deaf, dumb and just fine
piggin' out at the poverty line
forever afford
another bottle o wine

bottle o wine
dig an infinite outline and end-line and byline
and this time
bury the good times for a change

and let the rest go
