Track Name: El Paso Boy
pretty pretty sky, empty buildings sigh
we left the broken syntax back at home
El Paso boy and I leave space between the lines
knowing fully well he'll soon be gone

Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna say
When they show up at your house and take your job away?
You saw it coming so you took your ass and hid
They all know who you are, they all know what you did

curled up on the floor, my Pavement man is tortured
communication skills have left him, lost
El Paso boy came back and took his keyboard rack
for out the house the furniture is tossed

Whatcha gonna do about it, whatcha gonna say
When they drive up in their cars and take your man away?
You saw it coming but you didn't know what to do
Now they will lock him up in a place where he'll be safe
Track Name: Indie Rock Show
Stroke of midnight at the indie rock show
Beats and bass are hot and I'm aglow
Next morning I'm at work doin' the 9 to 5
With a woman clinging to her last hours of life

The stretch is hard, the stakes are high
I drain a Diet Coke when the coffee cup runs dry
And crush the pills to help absorb her pain
A dirty washrag over spider veins

Oh mother, I am paying my way
Down the twisty road of fun and consequence
Swing down the middle, you know I'll never let you down

As I'm returning to the indie rock show
I hear a siren song in my conscience flow
Glasses break behind the bar tonight
And from the ceiling streams Aleisis light
Track Name: Snake Park, IL
She's a siren, makes you scream and shout
Red satin, alabaster thighs
She's a firecracker ringing out, a holy priestess in disguise
We got the spirit up in here, bodies shaking everywhere

We want it, we want it, she's got it, she's got it!
We want it, we want it, she's got it, she's got it!
Desire, desire, like fire, the power
Madwoman, strange flower, I want her

Someday I'm gonna take her home
Win her over with a smile and charm
Gonna lay her down and make her moan
Find heaven in each other's arms
Track Name: Frustrated Ambitions
Crawling around on my hands
My wallet fell under the bed
Forgot I turned off the alarm
Up at 6:30, too late

Awake in a bittersweet haze
Watching the cats on the lawn
My skin getting stuck to my chair
I'm out of step, once again

(I broke my promise to the world, today,
I broke my promise to the world, again.)
Track Name: Pretty Mouth
I'll open up these dirty wings and teach myself to fly
When I take my face from off the floor, it makes me wanna cry
You keep me locked in a little box with windows all around
and if I stay here longer I won't know my sky from ground

You'll cry, gonna cry, you'll cry, gonna cry
When I find the strength inside to fight with your pretty mouth

Wear lipstick red, wear tarpit black, wear guardian angel white
I don't care about what you wear, long as it comes off at night
I read your words, they sat in my head like water in my brain
Let's drink downtown, then fool around, I'm gonna wreck your shame

You'll cry, gonna cry, you'll cry, gonna cry
When I find the strength inside to fight with your pretty mouth
You'll cry, gonna cry, you'll cry, gonna cry
When I pack my bags and leave on a plane home heading south
Track Name: Canada Clare
Positive mental focus
Therapeutic third eye integration daily
Feel her soul fly into the ether
Chaotic erotic rebirth lying there

Why you wanna move to Canada?
Why you wanna move to France?
Why you wanna move to Portland, Oregon?
When will you give back my pants?

Boogie down, emotion
Embrace ego, intellect, diversity
Find her soul floating in the yerba mate
Run her life on sustainable energy

When will you dye all your hair bright red?
Where will you put your next tattoo?
You're never listening, you're texting on your phone
In between bites of tofu

When will your folks buy you a hybrid car?
What enlightenment do you seek?
Digital messages sent from the mountain sun
Or naked parties in the creek?

Why you wanna move to Zanzibar?
When will you see Tibet?
You said you're happy, girl, but you cannot decide
You ain't got out of Whole Foods yet
