Track Name: Love's For The Birds
You know what I know but you know that I don't care
You know what I know but you know I'm hardly there
And when I write you a letter you remind me of my pen
No matter how mad your fountain I'm always controlling it

Sometimes I stand only inches tall
The speed of my feet prevents me from falling in
Love's for the birds I say standing tall
I've told you before you cannot bleed a stone

You wrote your name on the side of my coral reef
You took the lives of the tiny creatures beneath
And when the deed was done, I wanted to cut and run
And though your penmanship was perfect it's frowned upon

Sometimes I stand only inches tall
The speed of my feet prevents me from falling in
Love's for the birds I say standing tall
I've told you before you cannot bleed a stone

You know what I know but you know that I don't care
You know what I know but god knows you're never there
And when I write you a letter you remind me of my pen
No matter how mad your fountain I'm always controlling it... and you

Sometimes I stand only inches tall
The speed of my feet prevents me from falling in
Love's for the birds I say standing tall
I've told you before you cannot bleed a stone
Track Name: Boy In A Man Suit
Where will I be where am I now?
Boy in a man suit taking orders down
They're serving cocktails and it's a shame
I'm suffering from a spiritual malaise
Where will I be where will I go?
The Mediterranean is covered in snow
That Roman lake was my father's dream
But dreams to me aren't all what they seem

Where will I be where am I now?
A twenty something lost in a crowd
A thousand faces all look the same
That single face that will someday have a name
And I will never need a confession
From a tiny light on a field of black
And god can grant you satisfaction
But what he gives he will never take back

The sun it rises like a common cold
I cruise on by like a man who believes in ghosts
The sun it rises like a common cold
I cruise on by like a man who's just seen a ghost
Track Name: Lemming Long Jumps
I won't stand up, I won't stand up
For you throw you under the bus
I will sit down, yeah I'll sit down
You made storm clouds acid rain clouds
I will throw up, yeah I'll throw up
Before doing lemming long jumps
It's an urban affair you just don't care
Small town sickness, urban business

When the dawn becomes the morning
You'll feel sorry feeding pigeons
And when those birds try and kill you
You will know that I don't need you

When I grow up, when I grow up
I will stand above the livestock
When you grow old, when you grow old
You'll be eating cat food alone
Armed with my pen, I have my pen
Write you letters drenched in semen
Oh is that rude? I'm being rude?
I just do unto what you do

When the dawn becomes the morning
You'll feel sorry feeding pigeons
And when those birds try and kill you
You will know that I don't need you

Keep your cigarettes, your money
I don't need them anymore
I'll call my unemployment agent
And we'll party, yes we'll party
Track Name: Feathered Feet
You know you go around, you come around
You shuffle all upon your feathered feet
I may not have a million dollars
But you still won't muscle answers out of me

Yeah the feeling sure is strong, I'm just scared to tag along

I roll around but the sleep it never comes

You know it takes more than the clothes you wear
To be a proper lady on the street
Like watching mannequins in windows
And your jaw drops to the floor when they breathe

So don't shave your underarms and then label me a pawn

I roll around but the sleep it never comes
Track Name: Night Driving
East coast is moving to the west coast
And the west coast is moving north
People gotta get that travel
Gotta find the best place to elope

Love on the tip of your fingers
Is like night driving when you're lost
So please, spare me the details
Driver find the best place for me to get off
And the drums go

Martha got a letter in the mail
Found out her first man wants a divorce
Now she's working at the all night diner
Trying to give directions when she's lost

And Bill never gets his fill
Always has a new project between the sheets
But please, spare a girl the details
She don't gotta know what I know for sure
And the band goes
