Track Name: Another One for the Banks
another tumble down yeah another one for the banks, and when that shot went off the general dropped the reins, it happened so, so fast, it happened so, another jump in time yeah forward for a price, keep me in all day and you work me in the night, a pretty girl came up to me and thought i looked nice, i said yeah, thanks well anyway, i should of been at home on the night we had to grow up, or maybe helping you like the time you were throwing up, i've spent so many days down here, gonna be at least a few more years, so buddy can you pour me another beer, baby hurry up and sit down right here, sit down right here, another song went down yeah the first one in a while, i'll turn the volume down but i would not touch that dial, my favorite show is on and oh it makes me smile, to say no thanks well anyway
Track Name: Phone Booths
understand me when i tell you please leave, you've got your candy, size you up to your knees, ask your body why do you bleed, from what you told me it seems to fit your needs, so were looking always for a something clever, leaning on some sort of remedy, bit a few times but it's next to never, i've got a short term memory, seems your lucky got your folks and their green, something stuck with me while living beneath my means, i know your story, there's more to you than your scream, the old oak tree protects me from your gleam, i've got suspicions you've got hidden ammunition underneath those mittens your gripping something spinning so fast, bypass, these doubts that don't last, retract your comment about my past, cause they went the same way, they bent the same rules, they choose clues that lead to empty phone booths, i told you, nobody knows the things that hold you, you've made decisions based on certain premonitions given that your mission is kissing pretty girls from way back, rehash, those straws that broke back, find you a place, get off my lap, cause they make the same pay, they went to same schools, they choose clues that lead to empty phone booths
Track Name: Singular Kind
she said what would you think if i told you i could do without, another serious man who only sleeps and shouts, would you turn away and tell your friend i've gone off the edge, by your position i probably would do the same, i've been thinking for so long, where do i go to turn things up, i've been thinking for so long, she said it's been a while since i could say with a smile, that i met someone with half the substance or style, as the man i knew right before i lost my head, and in my condition it will probably never happen again, i've been thinking for so long, where do i go to turn things up, i've been thinking for so long, maybe it's a singular kind of love, i've been thinking for so long, though they close my eyes i can't leave it alone, i feel magnetized, decayed down to the bone, you know my momma says, child give love a chance, before you shoot em done and start your victory dance
Track Name: Clementines
dreamed that i picked clementines all season night and day, until the farmer spotted me out, chased me waving his 12 gauge, to a reno casino to spend my hard earned pay, on blacks and jacks and panic attacks hoping i'm getting paid, i dreamed that i could buy Einstein's mind bend time and space, till i would die event horizon line ripped me into place, to a six shooter stand up town wearing boots and wrecking saloons, my women in dresses my enemy dead my triumphs in the tombs, my women in dresses, my enemy dead, dreaming my life dreaming away, dreaming my life dreaming away, i dreamed that i could fly without wings just a colored cape, shoot laser beams from my eyes pull the card and charge the ace, to my bed hanging on the precipice looking down without holding my breath, my fingers are cold my hands are worn but i've never been further from death, never been further, never been further, never been further, never been further, dreaming my life dreaming away, dreaming my life dreaming away, dreaming my life dreaming away, i dreamed that could dress up nice have hair that matches the suit, be one of those super important guys holding a briefcase making moves, to a broke bartender running his mouth writing songs that are made of lies, like the story of a fugitive on the farm getting busted stealing clementines
Track Name: Submarines
hold my wine he stole my grapes, somewhere in this crowded space, i won't fight but just incase, take me to your place, shut my mouth i can't deny, it's been years i have not tried, silence is disguised, to make you turn and hide, take your submarines, tell 'em to stand down, wash up 'til your clean, then come back to town, these pages save my breath, i'll keep them in my chest, i don't give a damn about the rest i can't confess any less, hold me back i'm acting up, gotta gambler's kind of luck, enough is never enough, oh man i love this stuff
