LYRICS:

GARBAGE ON GLUE

I’m in back if you want it

Take a page from me

I’m the last and forgotten

Better save for three

 

I’m in back of the sauna 

Get in line for a treat

Can you make me a baby?

 

What a waste of time

What a waste of tape

I go ape for bananas

Go bananas for ape

 

You got to hold your vow

You got to say your vow

You got to mean your vow

I’m garbage on glue

 

Call my dad if you want to

The telephone is free

Things got me real down

You got to hold your vow

You got to say your vow

You got to mean your vow

I’m garbage on glue

 

PORTO ALEGRE

Let me carve, let me dig to Alegre

Guard my lungs, solve ten crimes ’till the bread is done

Hand out eggs, give advice ’till the world is full

Grind and feel, weep and steal ’till your tan is gone

 

Starve young hens, wire their eyes ’till they stay awake

Call your wife for more real (hey-ice) in the middle day

Bathe for free, bleed for a fee with the sandy dogs

Blame the kids, eat with a bib ’till your belly won!

 

You are where you find yourself in Alegre

Gotta be where you find yourself in Alegre

Gotta be where you find yourself in Alegre

You’ll be where you find yourself in Alegre

WALKING STICK

Stable underwater

Viral underground

Pass a heap of trouble

Into the lost and found

 

Thank the man for asking

Send him on his way

No dessert for waiting

Painting on a grave

 

Say the word you made up

As you were walking home

Serve the food you stayed up

Making all alone

 

Belly up for tasting

Find your father’s eyes

Mold a face of clay

Into the highest price

 

I broke down

 

CAN’T STAND LIFE

Take your job away

Plan a big escape

Tell the car to wait

I don’t want to go

 

Do your body harm

Holding the alarm

Lost your mind

I don’t want to know

 

Can’t stand life

I want my rest

Can’t stand life

I tried my best

 

People wonder why

The whole world’s dry

Kids got to learn

What I don’t want to know

 

Can’t stand life

I want my rest

Can’t stand life

I tried my best

 

RED RIVER VISIONARIES

My luck fell into the ground
I backed up into the water
Seems like everyone is proud
I backed up into the red wall

I forget to reappear
Make them think that they are lovely
Call out something in the dark
Is this the way to the country

You take another hand
Cut the sandbags out
Move the trailers back
You begin your you left off

 

LE PASION

I’m only lucid, when cattle’s jucin’

I’m only livid, when spies are swimming wrong

Pull out your last rib, organic bone shiv

An anti-age gift, when someone’s laughing wrong

Ain’t it wrong? 

Le Pasion

 

CALLIGRAPHY

Can’t hear my hands, Can’t talk to dust

Can’t see the telephone my ears are leaking rust

I have saved, ten thousand days

My fortune’s buried with the Huns of yesterday

I’m not going to wait when I’m home

I rot alone, I thank you all

I search the mine for birds and came up with a frown

I’m not going to wait when I’m home

The sun is black, the sun is cold

The shadows incomplete it’s good to be unknown

I’m not going to wait when I’m home

Calligraphy

 

ANAEROBIC

I lay low

Pray for rain all day long, can’t take pretty underground

Dig a hole in the sun; sell your body on the lawn

I lay low

Build a tunnel in the weeds; fill your stomach full of seeds

Sign a letter with your toes, can’t take pretty down below

I lay low

 

CRAWL OUT

 

VIVA LA MISERY

Home outside the drain, roll them all away

Find the lost parade, march and feel the pain

Hide by the side of the road, my face make the graveyard look old

Downed by wild desire, tied to the legs of the choir

Beat alone and I beat alone and I pay

Beat alone and I beat alone and I stay

Beat alone and I beat alone get down

Beat alone and I’ll be along my way

Talk like their all the same, child I be afraid

Viva la misery, lie to the CNA

Beat alone and I beat alone and I pay

Beat alone and I beat alone and I stay

Beat alone and I beat alone get down

Beat alone and I’ll be along my way
