Track Name: Steer Me Right Sweet Jean ft. doma
Gone swimming
This is as clean as it gets without you
I tried to kill it -
The greenback inside

Coach said it
I could learn a lot from just watching TZ
But I can't forget it -
The way you ride
Track Name: Wokin´ It
Cut me a clove because I´m wokin´ it
Chronicling the joys of other boys around the way
Around the world

From the shower I watch him study
He rests his head against the wood beam
You & I we´re both hydrated
In the deep, deep sleep of boys
It´s a thud

Empty that crisper we are wokin´ it
If you wont slay the grape
I suppose i´ll have to slip it back into the cabinet

From the shower I watch him study
Pillow, snap, towel
Yum & Rummy
I rest myself against the bureau
Still got that glint of animal
In the deep sleep of boys

In the shop I heard the old hit
In its day I think I liked it
I was standing by the cabinet
Watching a crow drink from the drinking fountain
Track Name: Riggins
Hiding in the shadow of a green car
Looking through the window at the pizzeria


See I don't give a shit Jill -
We are what we are.
Track Name: Many Ropes
Swiping under bouncing all the time
Curdle me into your old car
Was that evil?
I suppose I missed it
He knows you´re in your jump suite
And you know he´s in his long johnnys
It´s humid here

Take one of these leaves.

As I sat clicking beads
You hit me round the gob
And ran around the block
Came back to clean me up
The sound of your love
Echoing to nothing

It's not alright to take your eyes
Off the sun rising
Up across the ghost town
Like we're somewhere else

Wont you make a morsel out of me
Youth me elementary
Bouncing on the vintage couch
Slur your words or talk about nothing else
You´re letting a draft into my sweat
And I´m chilled
Track Name: March 23rd
Making sense to him
& making sense to her
She was my best girl
& I loved her out this world
But then I changed
I broke her heart
& buried it deep
Told her that i´m only here to sleep
If I remember right she threw a shoe at me
She totally guilt tripped me
& then she said
"You have such a funny view of this world
Do you think you can do better then me?"
I told her that I´d really like to see
What was was waiting there for me
Now I have a belly & I grab it
Track Name: Used To Could
You never flew down that route
You never tried that tree-lined avenue
Did you?
I never reached through the sand for you
I never pushed that through

Duenna I had it locked down
But I guess I lost it now
Unevened by tonight
Guess this party's going south

Start with what you are not willing to hide
In our nightly negotiations
I used to could

You never blew down that route
Down that tree-lined avenue
White rainbow
Black out in the light
Yeah scare yeah

Duenna I can't live this down
But I can't stop coming around
Know this
Come back and notice
We're only going down
Track Name: Hit Reverse
Hit reverse
In the old world
And carry me
Back to the sea

Because it's wearing thin
This flizz we're in
And this fight in the rain
Isn't all you can be

Standing firm
To the new world
Moving slow and
Looking at me

It's an old stare
In the cold air
You clear the block
With a round of shots
From the tree
Track Name: Panorama Queens
They played the same song every night for years
Him and her they had a good try
But as doubt crept in and shook them from both sides
He said "This is not what I signed up for"

Approaching what he´d planned to become
He felt a familiar claw clasp on his shoulder.

He thought
I didn´t know you were into this stuff too
It´s kind of strange all of us being back here together

Forming a circle with their hands he puked
As his ex-lovers boyfriend said
"Let´s be best friends forever".
Track Name: The New Spot
In the new spot feeling better
Pulling out of your port forever
Slurping down the roasted beans.

Touching my new face
Feeling confused
Looking at my clothes thinking
Hey what´s the news!
I´ll just clip this anchor

I swear I´ve been blue
But really whoda knew.
Track Name: Wet Sunday (Knife In The Toaster)
I didn't notice the music stop
I didn't notice the window drop

I didn't notice the picture of him
Is he smiling at me
Or am I smiling at him?

Wake in the baking heat
Running out of everything
That you can do without

Waiting and watching the mirror float
Out of the window and
Over the road

Knife in the toaster
Toaster in the bath
Clarisse started screaming
And the hallway went black

Because we all want to go back.
Track Name: Swimming Again
Hock up a black lump
Don´t go easy on the children
It´s the last thing they´re needing
Pick off your scab and send it in
Well if we get enough bags we´ll begin
Helping out the children
Because it´s the children who are needing
Bags full of scabs sent by single dads
Their blood never clots
and their bleeding wont stop
These single dads have given all they´ve got
