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

The Bone Daddy lifts his skull from the piano lid to play lemme get a whiskey and peach tea— pistol on the table, revolver in the holster, — you ain’t gunna shoot me, I’ve paid my drink fee. Bodie Currency— (Brown Paper's Dead Tree) The deeds you’ve done for me, or the ax to my family... The rag time girl gets groovin’ to the keys played by bony phelanges— Whiskey down, the cards are free- the game is cheap. But Jimmy always carries on, ya see him? Losin’ gals’ he pulls his gun on me— Bodie Currency— (No paper No tree) The deeds you’ve done for me, or the ax to my family. Bodie Currency— (No paper No tree) The deeds you’ve done for me, or the ax to my family. Hey boy I know you been heckled here and there but Bodie Currency ain't of value everywhere When cows go dry and the Sherrif gets his lonely blues you'll have ta move along just like the tumbleweeds do... Well you're not the one I wanted but you'll do... Cuz he's no good for me, like I'm no good for you. But you can hang around me if you really want to and if you want to follow me, you're gunna follow me through the canyons and if you want to walk with me, you'll be walkin' through the ashes and if you want to live with me we're gunna live in a ghost town —be the king and queen of Bodie. Tumbleweed! You’re smoking buddy! The goods I’ve grown—I’ve paid my fee! Bodie don’t remember no Bodie don’t remember democracy, Oh the folk here They exchange...exchange...exchange... Bodie Currency— (No paper No tree) The deeds you’ve done for me, or the ax to my family Bodie Currency— (No paper No tree) The deeds you’ve done for me, or the ax to my family

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.

At the end of the day In the land of wood and water When my skin gone dry I will pass this to my daughter I will pass my burnin' soul to my daughter When my time has passed And the cyclone is unwinding May the goods come back And the fire of my soul is blinding I will take my burnin' soul down to the harbor I will pass my burnin' soul to my daughter Kingston soul where I lay my head Kingston soul where I made my bed Kingston soul where I lay my head For you Getting close to the shore See my white trail of flowers Clean my hands with the sand Final embers of my fire I will take my burnin' soul down to the harbor I will pass my burnin' soul to my daughter Kingston soul where I lay my head Kingston soul where I made my bed Kingston soul where I lay my head For you And I lay down my soul for you And I lay down my soul for you There is no war between us, Desire Ghosts don’t bleed little child Come and rest with me But stay a while And I lay down my soul for you And I lay down my soul for you And I lay down my soul for you And I lay down my soul for you

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

2 for 1 she said to me today she said “I’m so smooth, drinks On me—I just got paid” And now she’s crying a bottle of vodka And no she won’t stop Singin up in my ear I fell in love with a Georgia Strawberry (Can I get a nurse?) I can hear the pills Shakin’ all up in her purse She said it calms me down I just wanna be nice But a sharp knife Is the best friend Of serial killers and housewives Unzip my file By the billiard table A cheap photo Shoot by the jukebox One for the road You know the barcode baby But later I’ll watch you go home with another lady… (Can I get a nurse?) If you got thick skin, No one will know when you're ripe. When you started this story I just knew you were lying Because that man you said that you loved Is textin’ me now I fell in love with a Georgia strawberry (Can I get a nurse?)

Get back, get back to me Have a round of anti-socialite Spin spin, spin the bottle It can be our analog time At the end of the day We’re not in control at all And everything I love Is gunna change And everything I love Is gunna change Mercury Six pack, six pack of kisses, I’ll follow you, you’ll follow me Your big lips are little wrestlers I taste the glimmering souls Of the sea With you in my arms I’m not in control at all And everything I love Is gunna change everything I love Is gunna change Mercury You’re in your room Praying to your mini-recorder I’m in my room I need a break from propaganda If the world is ending lets entertain each other As we please As we please I didn't know it was you I didn't know it was you I didn't know it was you who'd be the one to see me to see that everything I love Is gunna change everything I love Is gunna change Everything I love Is gunna change Everything I love Is gunna change Mercury Is gunna change Mercury
