Track Name: Boogeyman
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
Track Name: Bodie Currency
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
Track Name: Tallahassee Song
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.
Track Name: Burnin' Soul
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
Track Name: Bruisey Brookie
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
Track Name: 2 For 1 (Wilkey Remix)
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?)
Track Name: Mercury
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
