Track Name: Slow Drawl
you’re going on and on, you always sing the same old songs
and no one wants to hear about the wars you claimed you won
you’re going on and on, you always praise the same old god
but no one’s ever seen the guy so can’t we just move on?
Track Name: I Have Failed You (Jon Lewis Wenders)
we met one summer sunday hiding out behind the church
it was 1990 we knew there wasn’t much to learn
from the priests or prophets better to explore with hands
upon each other’s body so much new to understand

everyday things aren’t going as they were supposed to
the little boys fall down, the girls don’t grow up as they used to
everyday things aren’t going as they were supposed to
i spoke of brave new worlds but now it’s clear that i have failed you

i shipped away to college i met a writer there
i sent his words to you they seemed to speak so clear
we drew a plan together between marriage and a parking lot
now it seems our understanding may have missed the plot

everyday things aren’t going as they were supposed to
the little boys fall down, the girls don’t grow up as they used to
everyday things aren’t going as they were supposed to
i spoke of brave new worlds but now it’s clear that i have failed you

everyday things aren’t going as they were supposed to
the little boys fall down, the girls don’t grow up as they used to
everyday things aren’t going as they were supposed to
i spoke of brave new worlds but now it’s clear that i have failed you
Track Name: I'm Afraid (Of The Wrist)
you told me you loved me
you said that you’d free me
i never conceived that you’d betray me this way
i’m laying in vomit
sick like a junkie
the wrist has been knocking at the door i’m afraid

i’m afraid
i’m afraid
what did you put in that drink again?

i showed you my secrets
you met all my people
my soldiers suggested that we push you away
i stood by your side
just to die at your hands
while the wrist is detaining everyone i betrayed

i’m afraid
i’m afraid
what did you put in that drink again?

you sold me your story
a child so lonely
you’d signed with the party just to find your own way
i fell for the accent
your family’s connected
the wrist has been tapping every word that we say

i’m afraid
i’m afraid
what did you put in that drink again?

now i know nothing that we’ve done will matter
they’ll change the books in all the schools to protect their future
ship the kids to terror farms teach them false disasters
now i know i’m alone, now i know
Track Name: You Look Like You Know A Little About Death
everywhere i’ve been it smells like death
you look like you know a little about death
so buy the next round and i’ll tell you the rest
i might just talk you out of taking me bed

we stole the car and bought a bag of weed
she told me i was all she’d ever need

everywhere i’ve been there’s no one left
you feel like a girl who knows about being left
we drove south from Michigan to Florida
but then she dropped me here outside this whiskey bar

we stole the car and bought a bag of pot
she told her husband she’d be with her mom
we never made a map to get back home
i knew we’d never make it on our own

what if you’re a little girl and no one touches you?
what if you’re a little boy and no one is impressed by you?
what if you’re no one and nobody ever looks at you?
what if your awake staring at the back of her head and she say’s it the end?

we stole the car and bought a bag of pot
she told her husband she’d be with her mom
we never made a map to get back home
i knew we’d never make it on our own

we stole the car and bought a bag of pot
she told her husband she’d be with her mom
we never made a map to get back home
but i never thought she’s leave me on my own
Track Name: With A Gun (Pelham Greer)
you’re led away from crowds of people
then you’re pushed into the car
they fill you up with pills
...and alcohol
it’s a quick ride to the station
where you dread the plane that’s waiting
rush you to another dog and pony show
a useless speech for those who don’t believe the party anymore
the pills kick in
at the podium
once again your hoping
someone’s gotten in with a gun

the pills kick in at the podium
you hope that someone’s got a gun
the pills kick in at the podium
you hope your son is safely gone
the pills kick in at the podium
you hope that someone’s got a gun
the pills kick in at the podium
you hope they never hear his songs
Track Name: Drug Doctor (Michael Greer)
you've got a drug doctor and a real sick mother
you know you're going nowhere but you'd feel a lot better
if the lights on the corner from that new gas station
were a little less fluorescent, a lot less like acid

you could maybe go outside if you had a couple friends you liked
you keep telling yourself someday you'll have something to say
(and you'll say it)
but she's a thousand piece puzzle so it's safer in the corner
cause if a single piece goes missing you might not find the answer

so you keep 'em in your pocket and you hide out in the basement
you drink your jack and coke alone
you beat your head until it sounds great
but you won't go out cause there's a war tonight
that sweater makes you look pale it doesn't fit right
out there in the dark it's so hard to find new friends

cause everyone looks so cool
everyone looks so cool
everyone but you
everyone looks so cool
Track Name: Read The Memo (Maria Tarango)
sebastian,

read the memo. it was a stupid idea to send me away. i can’t be in seattle knowing the turmoil that your dealing with in the capital. yes, i do i believe in symbols because it’s all that we have left. don’t you see that the architects never even managed to complete the foundation and now they’ve all gone deaf. please remember that when the dust finally settles there, the man with the whitest smile tells the boldest lies. and please remember that everyone you admire is in the past. these are not the men that you swore allegiance too.

read the memo, it’s been slowly breaking apart for the last year. i’m going to return tomorrow because i know that i’m all that you truly have left to believe in. ever since he died there is a sadness in your eyes that every man can see. it’s time to prove that your sadness isn’t a weakness. you should climb the walls, take back our houses and bring the kids home from the terror farms. please close the terror farms. it’s time to rise up and redeem the name and the honor of the wrist. it’s time to give the people their voices and their power back or there’ll be no future at all for this country.

read the memo, everything you fought for is finished now. it was a perfect ideal that we both gave our youth away for. but, now the party is old and broken. the widow is blind with power. after all these years she’s forgotten the books that lead us this far. so now you must put down your books and codes. read these letters and understand that you have your woman at your side. i will always stand strong and be brave with you. we both know the time has come. it’s time to start a war
