Jack-o-lanterns all glowing party after the show Halloween and the masks and the swigs of Jack confuse who I know Don’t get lost with some boy in that delicious devil outfit Native rollercoaster, my eyes go for you, but we didn’t show up here not to show some skin too It’s the night of the year we could be anonymously lucky Just don’t let some Michael come and get you (this is my last warning to you) I know you like the strong silent type he’ll chase you up the stairs and when he’s done with you he’ll walk away slowly I just feel they’re all looking They don’t have masquerade eyes We’ll stay for some lipstick drama some bloodlust disguised It’s just one of those nights I guess I Woulda rather stayed home Just don’t let some Goblin come and get you (this is my last warning to you) in the kitchen by the keg He’ll lick, you’ll wink, and sneak his number in your pocket slowly Don’t let some Freddy come and get you (this is my last warning to you) I know he’s the man of your dreams One roofie and you’ll slip from couch to boiler room slowly

Bruisey Brookie and Andy Warhol are always cruisin’ down the city streets I see ‘em From my window I’m writing it down Cuz I heard they make green from pop art Bruisey Brookie and Marylin Monroe are always doin’ their hair in public But Back in the studio, I see ‘em let it go They’re throwin’ green around on pop art I need caffeine I need the street Got a chance For me to meet A couture girl A city queen Does she do pills? Does she drink? Bruisey Brookie and yours truly are always drinkin’ on a blank canvas But the blood on her knees and the bruise on her cheek are keepin’ me warm from pop art

When society falls you’ll kiss me hard And even in your spit I’ll taste the turn and we’ll go to the mall And burn that useless shit We’ll gather up some cars and we’ll all pile in Use the last of the gas from our glorious past To get to Oregon I thought I bought into spending time It was only a timeshare I thought I bought into spending time It was only a timeshare Fluorescent green, That finally faded enough to show me That I was living in a Wal-Mart dream with you Open up my mouth Spoon-feed me food Just in case I don’t forget my paycheck The idyllic lands on your cereal box are paper thin Lubricating my eyes to the bright blue skies on a box of Claritin I swallow down that pill but that building only grew And at the top photographers take a shot They use to sell that view to you I thought I bought into spending time It was only a timeshare I thought I bought into spending time It was only a timeshare Fluorescent green, That finally faded enough to show me That I was living in a Wal-Mart dream with you Open up my mouth Spoon-feed me food Just in case I don’t forget my paycheck I’m not in the market for that! I’m not in the market for that! You’re selling us what we already have! I thought I bought into spending time It was only a timeshare I thought I bought into spending time It was only a timeshare Fluorescent green, That finally faded enough to show me That I was living in a Wal-Mart dream with you Open up my mouth Spoon-feed me food Just in case I don’t forget my paycheck

Unravel your organic consciousness It’s susceptibility is suspicious Waves capable of evolution And torrents of data floating around Carrying sound Floating around Carring sound to the end of the map You think there’s some big fish We are mammals in the water coming up for air You better leave this bitter water Ben While the channels are changing for you Currently bending the water for you The big fish plays a good tune I’ll hold my breath with you The big fish plays a good tune I’ll hold my breath for you (You'll be eaten alive)

Florida weather Heatin’ up the dog park Fashion climate Makin’ them dogs bark Tallahassee you been good to me But I been thinkin’ it’s time to go I been dreamin’ of tradin’ your purple skies For the open road Don’t get me wrong I wanna press the plums But there ain’t enough jam For this coke and rum And Brooke is drinking for everyone She’s tryin’ ta keep the party fun Conservative notions are constantly telling us that we cannot be bringing our beat but if you don’t like our beat you know we take to the street You know we take to the street Too many cooks will spoil the broth, especially if you’ve got beef But if you got beef don’t put that in my stew. Don’t put that beef in my stew.

Mama always said I was a daydreamer Sleepwalkin’ young, she was a screamer Papa let me watch the Freddy movies But now my dreams aren’t lonely So I, so I, so I I been sleepin’ with a nightlight since then It keeps the monsters out my bed Then I met a girl named Lucy She taught me how to use my Slow eye, slow eye, slow eye I been flippin the light switch up and down I been lookin’ at the ground It’s slippin’ away from my It’s slippin’ away from my feet Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Oh ah oh ah oh Oh ah oh ah oh Sleepwalkin’ with Lucy’s not easy You can’t fall asleep watchin’ teevee So come over I’ll fix you a cup o’ tea And we’ll be lucid dreaming Me and me! I been flippin the light switch up and down I been lookin’ at the ground It’s slippin’ away from my It’s slippin’ away from my feet Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Woah Oh ah oh ah oh Oh ah oh ah oh And now I’m not Dreamin’ of you

Here’s one about the Garden Girl She couldn’t grow inside our world She dug a hole inside her apartment On the first floor the bud started growing safe from pesticides and policemen Around the couch the trash piled up when she found out he was leaving Extreme videos played for her blank display until a breaking news bulletin The reporter said the day has finally come You can grow all the plants you want to But the Garden Girl just couldn’t stop crying Her tears water the soil We’re all fertilizer baby Maybe she was just a bad seed All you need is apple cores and orange peel I’ve seen the rain make her smile When he came home from a whiskey binge that she had to pay for The garden had grown in their living room, plants taller than the both of them There’s nothing I’d rather do than smoke with you He said, and peeled back a plant to kiss her We’re all fertilizer baby Maybe she was just a bad seed All you need is apple cores and orange peel I’ve seen the rain make her smile Fertilizer! Oxygen! A little water! (grow grow grow grow) Oxygen! We’re all fertilizer baby Maybe she was just a bad seed In this room it’s purple and hazy Garden Girls grow to make you smile

Suppose I chose To live so very domestically With you in the stable And I in the kitchen Can you hear me cookin’? Suppose I chose To buy a golden ring to match this castle Are you getting enough sun my dear? Ooh and they say holy matrimony… Ooh and they say what they say… When my heretic’s loose One partner can get quite moldy You’re comin’ on home to the same old story Lickin’ her legs in the kitchen But when he comes home We’re disappearin’ You didn’t leave – We’d already started You didn’t leave – We’d already started You didn’t leave – We’d already started One partner can get quite moldy You’re comin’ on home to the same old story Lickin’ her legs in the kitchen But when he comes home We’re disappearin’

Two hundred years Drinking and walking I drift by the moon You gave me champagne While I was avoiding the sun … Don’t let me say I never really thought I’d feel this way I never felt so cool It’s different the second time with you I never felt so bad Zydeco dancing in your head will settle down soon Now you’re on the trip. You said, “Yeah I’m really tripping now” But watch the café, we’re coming up on Du Monde, There’s blood on your lip. The tarot reader separated astronomy from astrology, she’s a telescope. We read Aristotle over sangria and broke from the prison of the southern bank for a minute of free trade— She eventually declined our ride— But I think that she’ll believe again in free land Straight into Orleans Hand me those strings from my gig bag How am I to know if you’d get in the way? Black Cherry Blood, you’re sweet but would you get in the way? Don’t let me drain you and don’t drain me in my day sleep And I would save this sucking night with a cliché “I never felt so cool” It’s different the second time with you I never felt so rad I just think that I’ll regret doing this to you Straight out of Orleans I know you wanna go with me up river How am I to know if you’d get in the way? Black Cherry Blood, I need to know if you’d get in the way Or if I’d get in the way.
