Track Name: Private Slum
ever wonder why it come
easy for one so hard for some?
to let the hunger last
forget about the past
and figure out the new

ever wave to no one there?
ever wonder where you are?
ever walk alone
long enough to know
nothin all over again?

nothin all over again

ever brave your private slums?
ever been in bitter love?
remember holding out your thumb
to hitch us both a ride?

ever wonder why it come
easy for one never for some?

yes it moves too fast
can't ever see it all
until our skin gives in
and we become

nothin all over again
Track Name: Lonely Unison
I only want ya for the tale babe
I only wanna catch your eye
Please don't be mislead by my fine taste
I work for cash and celebrate every night
The only fauna are the rat stacks
Fat, black and hockin' on the pie
Don't be disgusted by my crusted face
I work the dives
And tuck the drunks in at dawn
Every night
Every night
You turn off the lights and turn in
Long before I go on
Americanarama slapdash
Shit pile get fed up with the flies
I only want it for the pure disgrace of
Giving chase to those lowest of highs
I hold the venom of the white dove
When I do wade into the rye
Fully intend to mend that trend again
Of losing face and going grim at the end
Of every night
Every night you turn off the lights
And turn in long before I go on
I go down
Fall to the ground but I'll be alright
And long before you came to town
Somehow I knew I wanted you around
Every night
Every night
You work up your mind to get off
Just as I'm goin on
And now I'm waitin in line
With the weight of past loves
Hovering over a microphone
And all the bones
Beneath the stones
Moan in lonely unison
"I just miss you, that's all"
