Track Name: Jawbone
Jawbone jawbone
Pincerdad corn pone
Put the hat back
Theres a summer full of sand-diggin
Winter, old fogie
Drinkin like he missed his dinner
Bells in his pocket
Bells in his pocket

Big Ed, Big Ed
Summer as a mercenary
Winter up in Gary bible-thumping for a Big Penny
Got the hat back
Asleep is a cold city
Sleet is a blanket
When you're whiter than a coma combed-over

Jawbone Jawbone
Mouth full of cornpone
Staring at the telephone
Waiting for the Big Call
"Is it me? Is it me?
Did I get the big break"
Whiter than a coma
Bells in his pocket
Bells in his pocket
Movin' up to Gary one last winter
Track Name: Dog's Last Day
I got a nail in my hand
I got a stone in my shoe
I got a cross on my back
and its named after you

I got a gun on my hip
I got a knife in my gut
I got a baby back home
and she's wailing but

I need a cold dark corner
to sit and drink
I'm gonna set here til I die
They’re gonna send the dogs for me after church lets out
When the sun sets at quarter to five

Well I killed a man in Kansas City
A man who done me wrong
Now there's a price on my head and my time is up
These shadows are growing long

I got a nail in my hand
I got a stone in my shoe
I got a cross on my back
and its broken in two

I got a gun on my hip
I got a knife in my gut
I got a thousand yellow pages
and I'm shit outta luck
Track Name: Hard To Believe
It takes half a life in the wild
To go home
To go home
Its taken many a life
To make rain fall

It's hard to believe
In the purchasing fate
The seminal song of the century
It's hard to accept
When it comes down to time
The moment's unbreakable certainty
It's hard to believe

If only I had enough change
To go home
To go home
Stuck isn't nearly so bad
When you're broken

It's hard to believe
In the big easy streak
The hope of husbands of housewives
It's hard to accept
When push comes to shove
The miles of road between lifetimes
It's hard to believe
Track Name: Burnitdownandgetnaked
Suck at the poison

Until it comes

Fingers in the wet one

Peeling off and over

I’ll fight you back, I will

Watch it, watch me win

Cannibal rebels can Cannibal rebels can

Only swing at ghosts

Burn it down and get naked!
Track Name: Permafreeze
You wear your gold butter
Your yolk is overdone
You act so unpolluted
Young and in love

I light the blood-fire
Perfect poppy seam
You act so unsupported
Your eyes will lose that gleam

Vapor permeates the focus
Steel purpose still in need
You say you’re still united
Holy poles in permafreeze
Track Name: Customer Satisfaction
Sidetracked college boy
Smoking like it means life
Holed up in San Francisco
Holding out for the second coming

Police kids presidents
Shooting what we aim for
Shut the damn door, child
Don't you know there's a war outside?

Customer satisfaction
It's the stuff we're made of

Hillbilly Philly fan
Turn the damn TV on
Get your gun they're coming soon
Police kids, presidents

10" step stool
Climbing up the corporate ladder
Holed up in New York City
Holding out for the second coming

Customer satisfaction
It's the stuff we're made of
Track Name: Paper Plate
I'm a paper plate
on a table in the kingdom, a table in the kingdom,
a paper plate

Feed on me
Bleed on me
I don't know what the cup next to me holds
but I hope that its actually wine
