Track Name: Heaven
Well I wouldn't spend my time with you in heaven
and I wouldn't like to be you when you're dreaming
just don't let the world see how out of love you are
everyone will fear to know what part of them you're keeping

but when you're sinking down in the deep black cauldron of the night
I'll come running just the same

There's something on my mind I've got a dungeon of regret
I'm a barrel full of snakes and not of monkeys
I'm shattering my teeth from always chomping at the bit
I'm bearing down the next sweet town for nothing

but when you're sinking down in the deep black cauldron of the night
I'll come running just the same
Track Name: Dick Diver
no taste for blood
I'm worse at what I've become
trying to hide the sunshine in my sheets
when morning comes
I'm blinking through a naked sun
when in my dreams I fuck and fight and feed

but i don't think I'd make it
make it on my own
I slash and burn at every turn I've taken

well I heard in France
the girls in peacetime like to dance
and in my dreams I watch them as they sway
where beaches are
in Isadorah Duncan's car
she's outta time but silk is fine to wear into the fade

and I don't think she'd make it
make it on her own
she'd wrap her throat if every spoke was crying out to break it

but I don't think i'd make it
make it on my own
I slash and burn at every turn I take it
Track Name: Getting the Band Back Together
I'm not beat but I've felt the blows
coming full tilt boogie off the radio
I collect the bits that git through the holes
and I get a flame flying so they see smoke

better drop the tricks you slipped up your sleeve
and step outside we're gonna shoot the breeze
the hits kept flipping through the midnight hour
but some young cunt's gonna cut the power

America has got the blues
It's in its face aint in the news
and we're getting better / much better / getting it together

when you're eyes ain't clapped on sun for days
and you rise up blinking from a sewer drain
it ain't alright to just amplify any idle picker that just walks on by

Put your hands inside your coat
the way he play could cut your throat

No tin of peas or can of coke or motel six is gonna rock the boat
there's no fresh fruit for rotting veg what satisfies is in the head

the hits are still flippin in the bungalow
pick him up we gotta get him home

getting the band back together
Track Name: Hipster Bolero
I got the kombucha blues
this is the champagne of shit
give me / give me coca cola
coca cola when I wanna get wet

I hear you listening to CBC
you're always listening to radio 3
tonight your listening to radio ONE

And when I bust in the room
you better chop off my head
I gotta hold back the down
that down before I go back to bed

give me hard cutting mess
trying to go clear
I'll be on the two scene
I solid blew my top
and fell on my ear
looking for tenth street

My man I'm straight as an arrow
going to union pool

Let's do a hipster bolero
Track Name: Permanent Dive
I ain't been alone in forever
I'll be alone at last
and oh when I get home
I'm taking a ride on a permanent dive

I'm not hellbound starburst
I'm not a young cool waif
But oh when I get home
I'll do it at my pace
yeah, I do it at my pace
oh when I get home
I'm taking a ride on a permanent dive

I have had my pick of all my pleasure
and I've weaved the finest sunlight in my hair
but oh when I get home
I'm taking a ride
on a permanent dive
A permanent dive
straight to your heart
Track Name: Run Until the Porchlight's Gone
Hold me closer let me rest
I get higher now for less
I use my body to come down
I got no jewel left in my crown

what does it matter if you're not caught?
I see the patterns as rope between the knots
and if I pull you back you'll know

My little meadow is full of scars
I blame the zenith for dropping stars
I slash and burn / I get made up
just to be feathered, to be tarred

What does it matter when you're all done?
I see the patterns as space between the rungs

Don't pin another dream on me if you care about your heart
In the morning you'll be gone, So I'll wait until dawn and run until the porchlight's gone
Track Name: Easy Shaker
Easy Shaker
Sweet Lemonade

your piece of shade

Easy Shaker

Easy Shaker

Easy Shaker
I'm down on my knees

Alligator

I tried to make her
I gaver her pain

Easy Shaker

Easy Shaker
Aint no one better, yeah
Easy Shaker
I'm down on my knees
easy shaker I know what you need

Easy shaker I love you so
Easy shaker I can't let you go
Easy shaker I'm down on my knees
