Track Name: Mary
when Mary was younger, her mom
put a curse on her cunt
& she taught her to sink like a stone
but these tender walls-
they can stretch, they can breach & they can grow
& Mary now is getting softer on her own

& here my soul will know me as blessed
here my New One; bring fear to His mercy
He fills up the hungry with good things
& He sends the rich away

when Mary was different, her mom
made a garden out of weeds
& she told her to grow like a tree
& oh, mom was proud,
full of might, like a priest on sunday morn
never seeing Mary’s garden grown

& here my soul will know me as blessed
here my New One; bring fear to His mercy
He fills up the hungry with good things
& He sends the rich away
Track Name: Asunción&Dayanara
so you ride tonight
slow it down slow it down waaaay down &
with your wheels alight
two of us could be in front of you
would you feel alright?
i’m gonna shut him up so far down

while you still deny
sitting on daggers in high school you’d
die to feel alive
blazing, youthful, trigger happy
would you feel alright?
i’m gonna cut him up so bad
Track Name: I'm Yr Baby (for Aaron Swartz)
This year I know how to be better to you

The lines are clear now, the lines are clear now
The lines are clear now, the lines are clear now

Hard times are here, & not leaving soon
To the mountain of the crouching beast
Losing strength to the wise

The lines are clear now, the lines are clear now
The lines are clear now, tired again
Where the hunger meets the road
Find the debts of our younger days

Enemies trade sides
& bitch & moan & vomit on themselves
Bet the farm on shame
Bet it all on CBT

Heaven, I’m yr baby
Heaven, be my mommy
Heaven, don’t ya want me?
This is all I can be

Life in bed with the lights off
Your face falls, & you cry & feel worthless
Bet your life in poverty
Shame is ridin' high tonight
Do you feel lucky?

Heaven, I’m yr baby
Heaven, be my mommy
Heaven, why don’t ya want me?
This is all I could be.
Track Name: War Time
please let me be an idiot tonight
i want to be helplessly of this world
did you hear me moan,
‘no hope for my loans
so I broke every bone in my body.’

& when the war comes faithfully into my eyes
& when i liquefy my brains, is it still me?
& did you hear me moan,
‘no hope for my loans
so I broke every bone in my body.

'think of yourself, free to be anything
not me, not me, not me.’

Whoaoa, can you feel my love,
shinin’ for you?
Track Name: Jackpot
the bridge out by old Five Span
kid you not, my sweetest friend
we find the stump & twig
married, like you to me.

i’ve grown a betting man
& you’re an impossible feast
how long will you be young
how long under my thumb?

hey hey, daddy’s alright, don’t you worry i’ma be fine.
hey hey, daddy’s alright, find my way home every night.

bite marks on hand&leg
& the itching pains on my asshole
to the Power Dam Express i drip
what’s your mama got to say about that?

breach of reason, & the like of dogs
i feel like a king fucking ape
& the rock where i raise my fist
is where you sink like a living stone.

hey hey, daddy’s alright, don’t you worry i’ma be fine.
hey hey, daddy’s alright, find my way home every night.
hey hey, daddy’s alright, need to feel pretty, need to feel right.
hey hey, daddy’s alright, just a little maudlin just a little tight.
Track Name: Dancing In the Dark (Springsteen)
i get up in the evening
and i ain’t got nothin' to say
i come home in the morning
i go to bed feelin' the same way
i ain’t nothin' but tired
i’m just tired and bored with myself
hey there baby
i could use just a little help

you can’t start a fire
can’t start a fire without a spark
this gun’s for hire
even if we’re just dancin’ in the dark

messages keep getting clearer
radio’s on and i’m movin’ round the place
i check my look in the mirror
wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
man, i ain’t gettin’ nowhere
i’m just livin’ in a dump like this
somethin’s happenin’ somewhere
baby i just know there is

you can’t start a fire
can’t start a fire without a spark
this gun’s for hire
even if we’re just dancin’ in the dark

sit around gettin' older
there’s a joke somewhere, and it’s on me
shake this world off my shoulders
come on baby, have a laugh on me

stay on the streets of this town
& they’ll be carvin’ you up alright
they say you gotta stay hungry
hey baby, i’m just about starvin’ tonight
man, i’m dyin’ for some action
sick of sittin’ 'round here tryin’ to write this book
i need a love reaction
come on baby give me just one look

you can’t start a fire
sittin’ round cryin’ over a broken heart
this gun’s for hire
even if we’re just dancin’ in the dark

you can’t start a fire
worryin’ 'bout your little world fallin’ apart
this gun’s for hire
even if we’re just dancin’ in the dark
