Track Name: I Don't Mind
She was talking about a limousine,
She knows them well.
She was born overseas,
And you can't even tell.

But I don't mind,
No, I don't mind.

I know what everyone sees now,
I know it well.
She's going to make a scene now,
I can tell.

But I don't mind,
No, I don't mind.
Track Name: Conversion Vans
Parents hold their children's hands,
Jump out of the conversion vans,
It won't be long,
Until they're scattered and gone.

Put the mask around your face,
It will soon be replace,
By something real,
Something you better feel.
Oh little darling,
You're not going to sleep tonight,
But I'll still tell you,
Everything's going to be all right.

And when they grow up,
They're going to get all torn up,
And when you grow up,
You're going to get all torn up.

Oh little darling,
You're not going to sleep tonight,
But I'll still tell you,
Everything's going to be all right.
Track Name: Miss Universe
She's cleaning up the backyard,
Picking up those heavy logs,
For you.

She's lifting weights,
Stacking heavy plates,
For you.

She's a perfect ten,
To you.

Miss Universe,
You've got my only curse,
You do.
Track Name: Hallucinating Ghost
Hallucinating ghost,
Downstairs is where he floats.
Someone's making off with your stagecoach.

Purple, black and gold,
That's why the old man sold,
Or at least that's what you were told.

He always says...

Then the brother,
Whispers something in your ear,
Says that's for looking it,
That's not for here.

50's album covers,
Making me cry some psychic tears,
Dry mushrooms bring me here.

And he always says...

In a farm house up the road,
Where things are bought and sold.
She says things aren't quite what they seem,
When you're stuck in a permanent daydream.

She already took a bite of me.

What's the trouble?
Don't tell me you're seeing double,
As the hairs on your neck stand up like stubble.

And he always said...
Track Name: I Want You
I want you,
I do.
Say you want me too.

You don't got to decide now,
Not that you would anyhow.

Who are you?
I want you,
I do.
Say you want me too.

Don't you ever let it show.

Who are you?
I want you,
I do.
Say you want me too.
Track Name: Old Fashion
Met him as a little boy,
Playing with his broke-down toys.
He's got dirt from head to toe,
Lives in a house not a home.

When his dad comes home,
Still wishing he was still all alone.
By the time he realized his fate,
It had already been to late.

Screen door slams,
Shirt comes off,
Old fashion friend.
He's knocking on your basement window,
Looking for someplace warm to go,
An old fashion friend.

Just an old fashion,
He's no friend of mine.

When the cops drive by,
They're still wishing he wasn't alive.

Wrote his daddy from a prison cell,
Saying he was doing well.
Found Jesus and an old guitar,
Now he's going straight to hell.

Just an old fashion,
He's no friend of mine.
Track Name: Wet Behind the Ears
If you ever leave that street,
Pretty boys will meet you.
They'll pick you from a tree,
Pretty peach they'll eat you bare.

Where do you go?
I don't want to know.

So wet behind the ears,
That's exactly what brought you all your fears.
So wait a couple more years,
Ride some trains and automobiles.

Where do you go?
I don't want to know.

If you ever leave that street,
Pretty boys will meet you.
They'll pick you from a tree,
Pretty peach they'll eat you bare.

Where do you go?
I already know.
