Track Name: Stink Bomb
So, what’s your name, babe?
Where you been, huh?
I been there,
Just went there,
I’m back again!

I was crying all the way home,
“Wee, wee, wee…”

Back in the day, babe,
When I was real,
Boy driver,
Small hand at the wheel.

I was flying like a stink bomb.
Stay calm.
Come home.
Call Mom.

What’s today, babe?
What’s it been, huh?
I was there.
I live here.
I’m witnessing.

I’ll be smoking like a stink bomb.
Stay calm.
Come home.
Call Mom.

Back in blues again?
Black and blue again.
Track Name: A Bigger Man Than I
I know if that was me up there,
I just couldn’t stand by and watch my baby crucified.
But then, God’s a bigger man than I.

Please be gentle, very gentle.
She’s my baby.
Take her down and let me kiss her.
Track Name: Hook
I say sophistry and
your artistry are
all the company I
will ever need.

Oh, I finally see why
you’re so nice to me when
I’m your company. Then
you got to me.

I got a playground
Its alright as a playground
It comes back in the same round.
Track Name: Do Me In Tune
When all at once
they were crowded for lunch.
I was seated in back
With the poor and the slovenly.

Then you walked in
With some ink on your chin
and a bottle of gin.
Your jean hem was a tragedy.

Other than you
All the girls that i knew
Were a lark or a scam,
a fluke, a catastrophe.

I think
You knew
What would do me in
tune

Parkin the car
For a walk on a day
That was painted with sun
and some purple crysanthemums

Playin the flute
Dancin followin you
through the graves and the shoots
Like a pagan companion

I guess
We knew
What would do me in
tune.
Track Name: Boo Hoo
I can’t help but feel a little let down
When I come home
and you’re not around.

The living room is cold and empty.
The bathroom is dark
and you’re downtown.

Maybe I don’t work that shift job for nothing.
I need a woman
who understand the meaning of true.

Well, maybe I don’t care what you think.
Yeah, I’m a cripple.
Well who says that you aint?

And don’t even try and pull that
“I love you” trick.
Yeah, I may be stupid,
But I think you found someone new.

Boo Hoo.
And can’t you hear me crying bout it, too?

Hey I aint trying to put you down.
Its not your fault.
I been around.

I just can’t believe how I was playing the fool.
You had me coming, going,
crying, running, screwing on cue.

Boo hoo.
And can’t you hear me crying bout it, too?
Track Name: Timed Out
There it comes
Here it is
Now its gone
My only chance to make amends.

Anticipating yesterday,
I got caught waiting since tomorrow again.

That’s when it puts you in your place.
That’s when it takes you to that space.
And you’re timed out.

All alone and beating time.
But where’s the band?
Who’ll play those dynamic signs?

And will time beat it when you stop?
Grab it, hold it, squeeze it.
Don’t let a drop.

That’s when it puts you in your place.
That’s when it takes you to that space.
That’s when it kicks you in your face.
And you’re timed out.

Its too complicated.
I can’t explain to a girl like you.
Poorly encapsulated: be clear now.
And when today is through,
Make sure you,

When you lay you down to sleep,
Say your prayers.
Say goodbye to what you see.

Cause all that went won’t come again.
And who’s to say if your tomorrows are spent?

That’s when it puts you in your place.
That’s when it takes you to that space.
That’s when it kicks you in the face.
That’s when it puts you in your place.
And you’re timed out.
Track Name: And, Oh, I Love You
I been there before,
At curiousity’s door.
I won’t be going again.

Its like when in your dreams,
Where curiosity seems
To be a one-eyed crone,
Who sees you when you’re alone.

You and I did some time together,
Now you treat it like stormy weather.
Don’t you?

I can’t anticipate, babe,
Every little mistake I make,
Can you?

You could feel its true.
Your curiosity new.
Just like the wizened one
Who’s always havin fun
While everything comes undone.

You and I did some time together,
Now you treat it like stormy weather.
Don’t you?

I can’t anticipate, babe
Every little mistake I make,
Hey, can you?

Well, I’m so shy
I can’t approach you.
But I’m so glad you made it,
I’d be lost without you.
And I thank you for your being mine
And, Oh, I love you!

Now don’t fall behind.
Its curiosity time.
And though I’m almost through,
I have a thing or two
I’d like to ask you to do.


You and I did some time together,
Now you treat it like stormy weather.
Don’t you?

I can’t anticipate, babe
Every little mistake I make,
Hey, can you?

I was obliterated
My caring confiscated
With you
And, Oh, I love you!

Well I’m so shy
I can’t approach you.
But I’m so glad you made it,
I’d be lost without you.
And I thank you for your being mine
And, Oh, I love you!
