Track Name: Sweet Feet
I know you're feeling low, don't let it eat at your bones.
Who needs other people to glow? That's why the moon lights up.
All the squids out on the sidewalks waiting for their turn to ride in a hearse.
When you don't hear the dog bark, makes it feel that much worse.

Just keep your feet sweet. everything will be just fine.

I know it's dragging on, but baby c'mon.
It won't be very long. Won't be very long!
When you stare at the clock it don't move faster, just slows down.
So spill out your brains with words & paints and then go dance like a clown.

Just keep your feet sweet, you know you can't move time.
Just keep your feet sweet, everything will be just fine.
Keep your feet sweet & try to ease your worried mind.
Track Name: Milk & Honey
Can't keep playing games of cold compromise
Your heads up your ass while mine should be between your thighs
I don't know how to get this through
But if you feed into my lust then you might just change your attitude

Trying to dial back my audacity
So in return can you please not act so callously
Understand my unrequited thoughts
Tell me how can I be selfish when all I want's just to eat from the honey pot
From the honey
Track Name: Pennies From Heaven
Every time it rains, it rains pennies from heaven
Don't you know each cloud contains pennies from heaven
You'll find your fortune falling all over town
Be sure that your umbrella is upside down

Trade them for a package of sunshine & flowers
If you want the things you love, you must have showers
So when you hear it thunder, don't run under a tree
They'll be pennies from heaven for you and me
They'll be pennies from heaven for you and me
Track Name: Lavender Jones
Goodbye Lavender Jones, goodbye Lavender Jones
Getting used to being all alone
Got everywhere to call my home
Drinking milk, strengthen up my bones
Read a book, straightened up my soul

So long Uncle Sam, finally happy right where I am
If happy's here than here I'm gonna stay
Wouldn't call it the American way
Don't have money but that's okay
I never mind if I sleep my day away

Lavender Jones, Lavender Jones
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye.
Track Name: Amputee Song
I sat down by the lake one day, when I saw her staggering my way
Underneath her sun-kissed thigh was the shiniest silver peg
Captivated by this 3 limbed love, I thought about "Well, who needs 4?"
I told symmetry wasn't my type and that's how I got my foot in the door

I fell in love with an amputee & that's alright with me
Now I can park in front of the store. MAN! Who could ask for more?
Track Name: Trust Your Tastebuds, Not Your Heart
I have been mistaking your salt for sugar
And I don't think it'd be that much to ask of you
To pour me a new cup of tea

Irony when your heart is frozen, but your tea is scoldin'
It's fucking strange to burn your tongue & be frostbit all in one
At least I can't taste the salt

Try to find what guides my love
Blinded by desires of
Tricked my mind to believe in what would never be

I am lost with my little lamb in this bitter sea
And it's a damn shame a sweet love can't find this lamb or me
It's better than drowning alone...
Still rather drown in a sea of rum than a sea of salty tears
Track Name: Toy Boats
This could be my sweet release
Can feel the sand between my teeth
The crew is all dead but at least it's a lovely day
As long as this bottle lasts me the rest of the way
Track Name: Belly Full of Pride
No friend, no friend, I don't wanna talk about my strife
No friend, no friend, I don't wanna talk about my strife
Just a pat on my back will keep me rolling along alright

No man, no man, I don't need a place to stay
No man, no man, I don't need a place to stay
Home is where the car's parked, I believe I can make my way

Woman now woman don't take no pity on me
Listen to me woman don't you take no pity on me
Give me a little bit of lovin' and then I'll let you be

My stomach might be rumbling but I think Ill be just fine
No sir, no ma'am, though its much obliged
I would eat some of your supper but my belly's just too full of pride
Track Name: I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire
I don't want to set the world on fire
I just want to start a flame in your heart
In my heart there's only one desire
That one is you, no other will do

I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim
Just want to be the one you love
And with your admission that you feel the same
I'd reach the goal I'm dreaming of believe me

I don't want to set the world on fire
I just want to start a flame in your heart
I just want to start a flame in your heart
Track Name: Hopelesss Romantics Ramblin' Again
I stole you flowers from the neighbors yard
Hope they don't mind it, should have kept the gates barred
Cut my fingers on the thorns, well it could be karma but it might be more
Who the hell knows? Oh no.
I swear I meant no harm. Well, the gesture was nice don't be alarmed
All i wanted was a smile & open arms

Please don't be that way. Please.

I'll learn the tango just for you
I know we tried it, but this time I'll get the moves
Ever feel like wasting your time? Find me on down by the riverside
We could drive somewhere but I think I lost my keys
Get high in the midnight sun, chase each other naked playing fingers for guns
That's fine, that's fine. Yeah that's fine with me.

We could die today, so please.
We might fade away, so please.
