Track Name: Your Indie Boy Lover
I want to be your pretty Indie Boy Lover
And spent all day with you under the covers
Just you and me and a bottle of Chablis
You like anything. cool
Cool, you like anything.
Track Name: Matches
I think you are caustic to the touch
Lead me in and cut me up
I think you are something false
I think you and I should
never ever ever ever talk.

I have matches in my pocket
They will strike on anything
They are very special matches
You can have one if you want one
You have have one if you
Track Name: Pick Up the Gun
Don’t let them take away your daughter
Don’t let them take her in the closet
on camera on pay per view live and in close up
Pick up the gun!

Clothes are torn dirt in your teeth
The blood and stains and sweat and meat
and God is here my little dear
Don’t ever fear your Mama’s near
The time for recumbent subversion takes your hand
and leads you home
Pick up the gun!

What about her?
Isn’t that what fighting’s for?
Pick up the gun!
Track Name: Morning Love
Hey! You don’t have to worry about a thing
The stars are shining for you
Hey! You don’t have to worry for a while
The stars will be there tomorrow
and I'll be gone but I'll be back
Hey! You don’t need to cry yourself to sleep
You are a treasure to me
And I will not forget your name again
Track Name: Arc the Rapids
Falling awake
Monitors and isobars
A cathedral of loss deafens my agent
Defeatist for what?

There is cold, cold wine if you like cold wine
And there are rivers and cities and stuff

But it seems to tremble when you touch it
You’re in pain not in control
That’s denying all your instinct
That’s forgetting who you are

There is cold, cold wine if you like cold wine
And there are rivers and cities and stuff
Track Name: Drown the Din
We’re nothing without the Other's/I's
I’m dancing under a vacant sky
My lover has lost her mind
and I will never lie

You’re arcing your spine in a curl to what’s denied
This is all I can do to keep my mind from you
Track Name: Cigarette
I’ve wasted you like a cigarette or a coffee cup
Just go out
Forget the hassle with her
Rapt around her fingers

Luv is something tied up with memory
And where you want to be
And?
Where do you want to be?
Track Name: Forget Yr Name
Downtown is just fine
We're downtown all the time
And downtime runs about my head

We never talk it out just rub it out and out
(Forget your name again)

Listen, stop talking for a moment
Please I’m trying to rescue you from the cliffs
But you’re too busy with yourself to notice anybody else
Forget it you’re not worth my time

So struggle always downtown
Take whatever is going around
And downtime runs about my head

What about the morning when you cut off my hands?
What on earth did you do that for?
