Please call and say come over when you're done with your homework, and you wanna come play I'll try and play it cool while my heart is racing like it wants to get out I can't wait, no, I can't hardly wait Ooh ooh I can't wait, no, I can't hardly wait Ah It's like a Friday evening with a weakest promise of chocolate ice cream When we can get together, it's like candy confection, my favorite thing So long So sad When you're gone Oh, come back We'll sing like this Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba I can't wait, no, I can't hardly wait Ooh ooh I can't wait, no, I can't hardly wait Ah

she spoke that sweet language killed me cemetery dead she spoke that sweet language killed me cemetery dead she spoke that sweet language killed me cemetery dead now the vibrations from her tongue still bounce through my head she shook her tambourine invoked a sweet spirit she shook her tambourine invoked a sweet spirit she shook her tambourine invoked a sweet spirit now my body’s left me writhing freely, making me sweat I said some cosmic theme’s come conquered me and lulled me to being some cosmic theme’s come conquered me and lulled me to being some cosmic theme’s come conquered me and lulled me to being now my heart’s a beating constant of her equation she worked out hoodoo ragtime with femme caramel skin she worked out hoodoo ragtime with femme caramel skin she worked out hoodoo ragtime with femme caramel skin now my two-beat pulse is racing out of syncopation I said some cosmic theme’s come conquered me and lulled me to being some cosmic theme’s come conquered me and lulled me to being some cosmic theme’s come conquered me and lulled me to being now my heart’s a beating factor of her equation she rode ellipse around me friended me like a fire she rode ellipse around me friended me like a fire she rode ellipse around me friended me like a fire now my satellite’s in orbit with copernican spin I said some cosmic theme’s come conquered me and lulled me to being some cosmic theme’s come conquered me and lulled me to being some cosmic theme’s come conquered me and lulled me to being now my heart’s a beating factor of her equation I said a lovely mathematician’s got me factored in

Casper 03:15
Down Looped sidewalk Sink Up Mad flailing Cosmic leak How you feel now? (Girl, what’s happening?) Out Side closed windows Hummingbirds drink Fer- -Mented berries To test class glass How you feel now? (Girl, what’s happening?) Dues ex machina Trillions of hosts Strutting Down the road I was not a friendly ghost I was not a friendly ghost

Julia, on her prayer stand and she’s feeling disdain and the troll where the doll was is what the doll became to understand a man has got to find a place for plants and he waters them and then he grows his own legs she keeps asking where the door goes well, dear, it opens a wall go and open it right now reveal the great hall let loose the hose that knows where all the words, they go the point of this speech the sequence of events is not coincidence

Hope & Water 02:50
I need some, I’m in a lot of pain pills Temporarily relieve all of my ills I need a tempo I can dance to So I can get drunk, and scream out that I love you Now Before I go I just wanna let you know Before I go I think we should be perfectly honest Each of us has a little dirt on us All we need’s a little hope and water To clean up myself after my self slaughter Now Before I go I just wanna let you know Before I go All these drugs Never make you disappear They just make me smile Through my time here I need some, I’m in a lot of pain pills Temporarily relieve all of my ills I need a tempo I can dance to So I can get drunk, and scream out that I love you Now Before I go I just wanna let you know Before I go

Some folks say Not today Lord Satan, weep Cause I got away By luck's design I've won this time Fuck you, Satan Not today But I won't Live life that way Biding my time 'till Satan takes yours and mine No, I'll make a stand Make a fist with my hand Fuck you, Satan Today! Today, Satan Today, Satan Today, Satan Satan, Today When you unfurl your wings I'm sorry to say that you're just not as scary as you think, Satan Today, Satan Today, Satan Satan, Today

sweet is the day, when you pass it away with your hips and your thighs and your feet and your legs she surely can’t dance, but she surely can sway what it’s really about is the lips on her face it’s a sin, girl it’s a sin, girl when you sway, oh it’s a sin I do not know where she learned it all from her daddy’s side or maybe her mom sweet Jesus knows what I’m talking about it’s the devil’s work when she comes around it’s a sin, girl it’s a sin, girl when you sway, oh it’s a sin I heard the truth in an old country song the preacher’s not right if his wife is all wrong the devil can’t dance, but she surely can shake the devil can’t dance, but she surely can sway

Honey 02:28
I’ve got no money, honey, but I’ve got some news I’ve got a handmade shelter, the fire shows my moods So, let’s get cozy Your secret, show me We’ll set it loose Leena, feel the beat Know where your center’s at The fire takes your feet Tiny crop circles form Shadows, dust, and light Play with my senses torn Leena, feel the beat Know where my center’s at I can surely lead you on to the commotion Leena, feel the beat I’ve got no money, honey, but I’ve got no blues We need no man-made currency to stock our rooms So, let’s get cozy Your secret, show me We’ll set it loose

Lucy plants herself amongst the soil and roots ‘Till she knows the flora/fauna by name The stickbugs in the leaves know what’s carried via breeze And shiver as they hear her name It’s Lucy Ah, Lucy, go go go Come on, come on, come on Ah, Lucy, no no no Come on, come on, come on Ah, Lucy, go go go Lucy, you’re the only girl I know who says hello to everyone with her teeth When you made me fall and scrape my knee I just wiped the blood, that’s how love can be Ah, Lucy, go go go Come on, come on, come on Ah, Lucy, no no no Come on, come on, come on Ah, Lucy, go go go Lucy, you’re the only girl I know who says hello to everyone with her teeth

Becky, don't you know that's not the way that its done Russell’s chasing after Moses with his old shotgun and Becky Cant you choose the one you love? Terry’s not an honest man He's stealing from the trucks at work and Becky, please Go home You've been sleeping on the couch for days Drinking all the beer and saying You ain’t got no reason you ain’t got no reason you ain’t got no reason to go home Sister liz is out there telling tales She's at grandmas and she's got her on the telephone calling Russell saying, “Russell go and get your gun. You won’t believe what our sweet little becky has gone and done!” and Becky, please Go home You've been sleeping on the couch for days Drinking all the beer and sayin’ Rusty’s kicked Dilaudids He's calling on the phone and he's crying in my ear, saying, “Man, I need my Becky Man, I need my Becky Man, I need my sweet becky at hooooome!”

Eyes Forward 03:24
I woke up on Sunday morning Tempted by the thought of sleeping in But then you hooked your arm around me To whisper please, “Make eggs for me” And so I did With eyes forward You snuck up on me in the kitchen Moved by scarlet thoughts of lips to lips And when you wrapped your arms around me, I said, “Please, set the table for me, And call the kids” With eyes forward And when you wonder why Makes me wonder how All the memories we buried under the ground Found their way back to town After the sun has left No light behind to reflect on All the memories we left back eating our ground In that tidied town I won't find work as a pilot Nor build a house or dig a grave Loving you's fine work And we're so good at doing our jobs almost every day

The copper pipes went missing with the chaos in the yard The cops they are a’ chasing someone; from the back, I saw Flashing lights and footsteps that I hear as fingers point Baggies found on wet grass prompt, “Put your hands up on the car” Here’s to the crack cocaine the cops found in your yard Here’s to the crack cocaine the cops found in your yard Here’s to the crack cocaine the cops found in your yard Put your hands up on the car Snowflakes are a’ falling on the SUV outside I see they are all melting in familiar pop time I locked my doors and windows, and I thought that I was safe Blocked that spice of life, variety, the human race Here’s the dream catcher your neighbor left behind Here’s to the LSD that showed that painting’s smile Here’s to the chaos in my mind and in the yard Here’s to the ones downstairs, more susceptible than I Here’s to the crack cocaine the cops found in your yard Here’s to the crack cocaine the cops found in your yard Here’s to the crack cocaine the cops found in your yard Put your hands up on the car

the zombie apocalypso is the song of this prudish melody we’re calling “God” and all his daughters are conjuring up six pagan dogs with their priestesses with fiery red flesh headdresses on her and all the muddy rivers of this vital Earth are over teeming with six corpses giving birth to awful armies rape the world and giving head to the master, all the dead look simply understated in his arms and I was certain to be the wander certain certain certain certain certain to be the wander certain certain certain certain certain to be the one certainly the wandering eye of 666 keep me abreast, keep me abreast, keep me abreast of the zombie apocalypso is the song of the prudish melody we’re singing, God
