Track Name: Maple and White Oleander
Maple and White Oleander

I can be painfully, crushingly lonely.
I can be sensitive too.
The criminal mind behind a master disguise;
that could be me too.

Well, I am cold
but a heart worth looking for.
And I know (yeah I know, yeah I know)
a heart worth looking for.

She can be rightly, politely honest.
She can be sensitive too.
A bottle of wine from eighteen twenty nine;
that could be her too.

Well she is warm
and a heart worth looking for.
And I know (yeah I know, yeah I know)
a heart worth looking for.

We are together, birds of a feather.
We can be poetry too.
A bluebird's tune on a harvest moon;
that could be us too.

Well we are gold
and a heart worth looking for.
And I know (yeah I know, yeah I know)
a heart worth looking for.
Track Name: My Friend Satan
My Friend Satan

I don't yield for pedestrians.
I smoke weed every chance that I get.
I am not too melodic,
but goddamn-it, I try my best.

They say that Jesus saves and smoking kills.
But, I sold my soul for a dollar bill, and now
Satan is a good friend of mine. As-well-as
The heavy-handed individuals,
The intoxicated liberals, the
card-carrying communist with a kiss.

We won't write to congress
'Cause they're sure to get nothing done.
In the shoes of Obama;
talk about a lot of fun.

They say that Jesus saves and smoking kills.
But, I sold my soul for a dollar bill, and now
Satan is a good friend of mine. As-well-as
The heavy-handed individuals,
The intoxicated liberals, the
card-carrying communist with a kiss.
Track Name: Worms
Worms

Today I hope it rains.
So the worms come out to play.
So that I won't have to fish alone.

And if it does not rain,
“my god!”, I hope it pours.
So that I won't have to fish at all.

In every book I read
every phrase bears two meanings.
Every searing, vicious muse of man forlorn.
Track Name: I Sing The Body Electric
I Sing The Body Electric

The sun-light peaks through a crack in the wall.
Along the floor, on the body the body the light will fall.
The sun, the Earth, the soil is rich; so you know
that it will grow.

Death don't mean a thing to me at all.
'Cause I'm the one no-one will miss at all.

Miles away from a vicious crime; far from the man
I left to die.
Forget my sin, forget 'em all. Drown in an ocean
of alcohol.

Death don't mean a thing to me at all.
'Cause I'm the one no-one will miss at all.

Red Sparrow,
Red Sparrow, I see your face,
I see your face.
Texas lights go dim
and I think of him.
Texas lights go dim
and I think of him.
Track Name: Little Ocean
Little Ocean

I laughed at the ocean.
I called her blue.
We'll see if my heart sinks;
if the salt does it good.
Why would I miss it?
'Cause you said that I would?

Release the dogs, the guards on me.
Send me off lightly.
If I crawl back bloody kneed
don't take pity on me.

I picked up my oars and
spit on the shore.
We'll see if I make it;
if the current keeps it pull.
Which way should I row now?
Simple south? Adoring north?

Release the dogs, the guards on me.
Send me off lightly.
If I crawl back bloody kneed
don't take pity on me.
