Track Name: scrap
- something in your eyes tells me you're blue
no one ever seems to quite come through
but i'll come through

and even when it's late you'll be my friend
read the messages i'd never send
something in your eyes tells me a new
boy with browner eyes is close to you.
it's coming true

i can't stop thinking that i stole this song
it's from the eels, or early elton john
it's just an E and A away from 'death,'
it's just a lazy writer cheating breath

it's never getting better than right -
Track Name: help me, j.c.
i went there for you and came here for me
to be fair, to be free
the bottle never brought me back, the car we drove is
drowning in the sea

i went there for me, and left it for you
for trials or truth
or a couple bucks, a pack of smokes, a thousand nights
to hit my spot on cue

help me jesus, please be kind, 'cause lord i'm coming down
"christ you never call me back," he smiles with his frown
help me jesus, please be kind, 'cause lord i'm coming down

if i say the things you think but don't say
would you betray
your inner thought that thoughts that lead to nothing lead to nothing but astray?

help me jesus, please be kind, i'll try and come around
christ i want someone to hold when i am coming down
help me jesus...
Track Name: elephant in the room
elephant in the room


i'm not inclined to kill you
you know exactly what i mean
but when i see you hanging with that guy you say you love
i've got a mind to hang you off that chestnut tree

i got your number tuesday
thursday she said you moved away
i called you up on wednesday but i guess it didn't take
so now i'm left to think about what i failed to say

but i've got peace
and i've got joy
but i've got less of both when you admit you found both in that boy
and i've got love
i just assume
but it sure as hell ain't an elephant in the room

try as i might i'm famished
i'll eat you out of house and field and home
and when i can't forget i'll drink a hole inside your creek
and try to drown the bits of you i've never known

but i've got peace
and i've got joy
but i've got less of both when you admit you found both in that boy
and i've got love
i just assume
but it sure as hell ain't an elephant in the room.

and i've got joy
and i've got peace
'cause if i do or if i don't won't ever change things in the least
and i've got love
i just assume
but it sure as hell ain't an elephant in the room

no,
like a bell with a cotton clapper, or,
a mute addict set out to score
or a poet who just quit his job
as an extra in les miserables
or a three week fetus in the womb
it sure as hell ain't an elephant in the room
it sure as hell ain't an elephant in the room
Track Name: fuck your forty
we get through work on hate
we live in hesita-
tion
so fuck your forty hour day
and fuck your tv
and fuck your pay
(you lied and said her records weren't around)

we guard them while they sleep
we give so they can keep
us out
there are no lords or lizard kings
just greedy Icarus in purple wings
(you said you're not a goddamn lost and found)

rejection letters bite
between their lines it's fright-
ening
because i know they meant to say
nowhere nohow no when no way
(you sighed and said she'd pawned them all uptown)

i listen while you talk
you sound like stephen hawk
ing
not really words, computer sounds,
this day is mayday
we've run aground
(your heartbreak is our theatre in the round)
