Track Name: Sexxy
We knew we never stood a chance
Aim for the throat baby. Let’s dance.
20 gauge shotgun, hammerless, light, and strong.
How could something that feels so right ever be so wrong?

No more making love
Making love in the afternoon
No more making love
Making love to you in your room
You’re so sexy
My hands are sweaty
No more making love
Making love in the afternoon

I can see the Man Upstairs
Running his fingers through your hair
One last kiss before the final act
You bow your head. I tip my hat.

No more making love
Making love in the afternoon
No more making love
Making love to you in your room
You’re so sexy
My hands are sweaty
No more making love
Making love in the afternoon

We marched. We begged
For work and bread
We were terrified
We were shadows of ourselves

We knew we never stood a chance
Aim for the throat baby. Let’s dance
Stay out of the hot sun. Don’t forget this face
When all the lights go out, we’ll wake up in a better place.

No more making love
Making love in the afternoon
No more making love
Making love to you in your room
You’re so sexy
My hands are sweaty
No more making love
Making love in the afternoon
Track Name: Concussion
I must have started dreaming
When my head hit the floor
It shook the ground when I went down
You come crash through the door
I’d never seen your face before.

You tell me everything will be alright.
But I can tell you don’t know for sure
Should you call the doctor or the priest?
I ask you what for
There’s no hope. There’s no cure

My life is but a ship without a sail
Drifting further from shore
Am I stuck inside the belly of a whale?
Or was I never born?
Didn’t you die in the war?

Alcohol still on my breath.
My head really stings
There’s something sticky in my hair
I got blood on everything
It stained my wedding ring

I can speak romantic tongue
Where on earth have I been?
I wipe the tears from your face and ask
Why are you crying?
Because you are dying
Track Name: Drowning
Baby please tell me
Will you leave me
When the flood comes washing
Or should I build a boat for two?

I’m telling you the truth
I’ll learn to swim for you
Just as long as we can drown together

Swallow the ocean
Replace air with water
I’ve got a notion
You’ve got time and my waste to go swimming in

Try and hold your breath forever
Even still I long for you
Daring, famous, hollow, erotic
You’re drowning

Some day you’ll be a mermaid
I’ll cut my gills with sharpened whalebone
I love you with your hair wet

Baby please tell me
You wont leave me
When the flood comes washing
Yes I should pack your bathing suit

I’m telling you the truth
I’ll learn to swim for you
Even as I’m holding your head under
Daring, famous, hollow, erotic
You’re drowning me
Track Name: Summer Static
Cough syrup winter mornings
Begin with lemon kisses
Turn your back and I’ll kill you
Don’t turn your back. I’ll kill you
Me shake like sweet music
Me moon plum afternoon scream
Can you dance like Summer?
Can you dance like static?

I’m in love with myself
I’m in love with a liar
I’m in love with the ones I set on fire

After my universe
After my universe
Revolution in the air
After my universe
Revolutions in the air
Don’t be so sad
We have all the honey
They wont leave without us
Can you dance like Summer?
Can you dance like static?

I’m in love with myself
I’m in love with a liar
I’m in love with the ones I set on fire

Mother was red wine
Father from the sky
Track Name: Casanova
Short pants, long hands
Greasy hair and a bag of nails
The way I do it. The way I do it baby.
Your neck smells good
I paint your lips and teeth and tongue with mine.
The way I do it, The way I do it baby.

You cant deny. Look into my eyes

You wanna dance all night, then we’ll dance all night
You wanna start a fight, well alright, well alright
You wanna taste romance, girl you don’t stand a chance
You say you want a man, well

Here comes Casanova
He says he wants to get to know ya
Put your hands around my shoulders
And kiss me hard, because here he comes
Casanova

Barbed wire hairdryer.
I rub it down and then I slick it back
The way I do it. The way I do it baby.
12 hours, 12 times
I take a bite of that bikini peach
The way I do it. The way I do it baby.

You cant deny. I’m gonna make you cry

You wanna dance all night, then we’ll dance all night
You wanna start a fight, well alright, well alright
You wanna taste romance, girl you don’t stand a chance
You say you want a man, well

Here comes Casanova
He says he wants to get to know ya
Put your hands around my shoulders
And kiss me hard, because here he comes
Casanova
Track Name: Riding The Bull
I see you raising hell
Baby you don’t stand a chance
This ain’t no goddamn china shop
Take off those fxcking pants

Look out yonder and see the bull
You better play it cool. Play it cool.
Gonna break you down. Gonna crack the core
You’re gonna play the fool. Play the fool.

You think you got the stuff
The what it takes
To stand a chance
To stand the pain
To go all night in the pouring rain
Out on the hottest summer day
You go ahead and get on that train

I’ll be riding the bull.

Honey. Baby.
Please don’t leave me alone now
I need money
To feed the bull and his fat cow
Honey. Baby.
Please don’t make me beg
Aw hell.
I’ll be riding the bull instead

Look out yonder and see the bull
You better play it cool. Play it cool.
Gonna break you down. Gonna crack the core
You’re gonna play the fool. Play the fool.

You think you got the stuff
The what it takes
To stand a chance
To stand the pain
To go all night in the pouring rain
Out on the hottest summer day
You go ahead and get on that train

I’ll be riding the bull.
