Go For Broke

Stomach turns as you walk up the stairs to

Show your face

This new place

What if I have a food stain

What if they say I’m inane

No no you don’t

it’s time to go

buckle up and go broke

Feel alive as  you give the toll booth guy

your house key

you are free

In the morning we will go

Drive on through past Toledo

Yes yes, we know it’s time to go

buckle up and go for broke

 

Black Lipstick

God damn I overslept again

A bunch of brats tell me what’s in

They tell me to tuck my shirt in

Black Lipstick where you been

Can you believe this mess we’re in

Fuck it dude let’s just go bowling

oh you’re a doll

where did you go

oh you’re a doll

God help us all

They voted you homecoming queen

hair in your face you said not me

when they cheered you said

time to leave

You’re little sister’s got it made

naive enough to get good grades

and to want to be the boss one day

 

 

Not Me

We’re up we’re down we’re uppity

Everyone is so damn nutty

Why can’t you read my mind

Why can’t you mind my time

We’re up we’re down we’re uppity

Everyone is so damn nutty

 

CHORUS:

Not me, yes you

me too me too

 

We’re up we’re down we’re uppity

Everyone is so damn nutty

Everyone wears a belt

Below which blows are felt

 

CHORUS:

Not me, yes you

me too me too

 

Stranger Danger

I am an extra in your movie

You are an extra in my movie

I am an extra in your movie/ I guess I forgot my one line

You are an extra in my move/ but your sudden smile caught me eye

 

Stranger Danger delay

I have a bit role to play

Stranger danger delay

Touch and our fate melts away

 

I am an extra in your movie

Everyone has a tail like Haley the comet, it’s invisible

What would happen if I blocked your way

What would happen if I was to say/ Excuse me, insert my one line

 

Stranger Danger delay

I have a bit role to play

Stranger danger delay

Touch and our fate melts away

 

I am an extra in your movie

You are an extra in my movie

What would happen if I blocked your way

What would happen if I was to say

What would happen if I blocked your way

What would happen if I was to say

I am an extra in your movie

Everyone has a tail like Haley, it’s invisible

Broken Peanuts

I would like to share with you a secret

It came to me in a dream when we met

I am not real I am but a figment

My name is Satan and you are the best

I would like to share with you a secret

I think you’re cool and I dig how you dress

You got a special thing please come with us

To California state of loneliness

I want to dance oh yes oh baby I want to dance oh yes oh baby I want to dance oh yes I’d like to dance

I want to look oh yes oh baby I want to look oh yes oh baby I want to look oh yes I’d like to look

I want dessert oh yes oh baby I want dessert oh yes oh baby I want dessert oh yes I’d like dessert

I want to quit oh yes oh baby I want to quit oh yes oh baby I want to quit oh yes I’d like to quit

The worm’s embedded in the loveliest

It takes an apple to catch a rabbit

Your fear of me is probably what’s best

Come dance with me on the broken peanuts

Certificate

Running running across the bridge

Stampede forces me to finish

In my ears I hear a winner

One two, one two three four five six

Million mouths telling it like it is

In my ears I hear a winner

Up above we look a river

 

Sweepstakes blues visited me again

Heard a voice telling me I would win

It was just the whistle of the wind

Blowing through the river’s trees again

Give me my certificate, Give me my certificate, Give me my certificate

Give me my certificate, Give me my certificate, Give me my certificate

 

Steam

Ghost of myself chases you into bed

But there’s no room there are two you politely

Ask him, will you please pass

the coffee beans and bagel cream

I say: you can’t hear me, you can’t see me

I am the steam of your coffee

Open my eyes, hear you breathe I will change

First though I must walk through

multiple rows of ovation

You say, time to wake up

Have some coffee and bagel cream

You say, you can’t hear me, you can’t see me

I am the steam of your coffee

Hello? Hello? Hello?
