Track Name: blitzkrieg revival
there's a blitzkrieg revival up in northern minnesota
and there's a south bound train that's heading for the sea
but i've been looking for the map that's got an x to mark the spot
that indicates that i am where i'm meant to be

there's coffee in the coffee pot and ten bucks on the counter
enough gas in the tank to last a while
but i've been saying hi to strangers long enough to know i'm looking
for a bit of recognition in their smile

and i don't want your infinite forgiveness
and i don't need you tell me when i'm wrong
eternal love might be more than i can afford this month
but i'd love to know what you think of my songs

there's a blitzkrieg revival in the pulpits where the preachers
tell the choir they will never hold a tune
but i'm fed up with thick theology and thin predestination
so if your listening i hope you'll call me soon

and i don't want your infinite forgiveness
and i don't need you tell me when i'm wrong
eternal love might be more than i can afford this month
but i'd love to know what you think of my songs

they say that your living in heaven and you spend time building mansions
on the x that marks where i am meant to be
but when you see my face is missing from those endless stain-glass windows
is it possible for you to feel lonely?
with a thousand angels teeming like the sea,
is it possible for you to feel lonely?
Track Name: pickup art
i see you pretty girl with your face hidden behind your cell phone
no guys are sitting close enough to you to convince me you're not here
all alone
the room is getting dimmer and i'd swear to god you're starting to glow
your yawning says my odds are good and honey, hell, it just goes to show

i calculate my mosey as i overview the lie of your jeans
i've got to pick a pickup line you'll think is smart but still understand
what it means
i pick the line i used last time it works as long as i'm not too keen
and keep my real intentions clear but never seen

if your daddy never loved you
and left you empty except when he hurt you

my sense of smell is heightened and my lidless eyes can see in the dark
i've got a hidden something known only to the missionaries, or a shark
you can draw your own conclusions as to what's enough and what went too far
but the odds are good i'll get whatever i want if you get in my car

if your daddy didn't love you and left you empty except when he hurt
you and i want to say i'm sorry but i don't because that never quite works

its the whiskey talking.
cut your tongue out when it sins.

if your daddy didn't love you and left you empty except when he hurt
you and i want to say i'm sorry but i don't because that never quite works

it's laughable, i know, i spend a lot of time in bed all alone
to tear myself apart about a broken heart or pickup art i never honed
when i felt you kiss my neck it took my breath until i took you away
and we both learned the lesson everyone learns the next
Track Name: you see
you wait at the door i held for you before you knew you didn't know me
i answered the phone but answers are a lonely way to see

birds sing in the morning mourning many things that words cannot relate
i have to propose this, babe, but by my tone it might be too late

you're not far gone
you're almost home

take hold of this thought i think you need to hear accept that its all i've got
your hair is the breath of spring to hungry lungs, but
to mine
it is not
Track Name: a million dollars in a high school cafeteria
i feel like a million dollars today
please oh god don't let this go away
i love with love to give away i hope your newborns won't decay i feel with fear. to lead astray i'd try enough to look the other way. i crave much less than words could say if words were pots and i were clay. i give to take and i think to say, "i love to work, but work to earn my pay." i dare to cross the towns of wood, the fields of dust, the skies of judgement permeated on a golden rust of skyscrapers that don't care where i've been.
i feel like a million dollars today
please goddamn don't let this thing escape
i feel like a million dollars today
please oh god don't let this go away
Track Name: rhinoman
rhinoman did you drink your oxycotin like a coke?
did you decide if their compliments were merely polite jokes?
rhinoman, sure your armor can deflect their laser eyes. that's why she's aiming with her hips, and her legs, and her breasts and her thighs.

go far away.

rhinoman says his girl is like "some suitcase on a trip,"
but the metaphor dies on the way down to his lips
rhinoman asks the same question of everyone around
"why can't i recognize my face unless it's guarded by a frown?"

go far away.
no, you can't do this to me.
go far away.
Track Name: take it out
you could take it out tomorrow
cast it far away from you
you think your luck ran out of vegetables and it's true

whether it hides in your covers
or tries to roll away from you
if you can't sleep at night you mind is open
to the dreams that take a break
and leave a few

molier wrote something tragic
because he found funny, too.
no one heard his final laugh inside of his room

prometheus he stole some fire
they chained him up where eagles flew
sublime heights and chronic tearing out
i share with him for that quick glance i stole at you

you could take it out tomorrow
and cast it far away from you
you think your luck ran out of vegetables and it's true.
its true.
