Track Name: Mother Nurture
I went walking
Just to clear my head
Too much talking
Nothing really said
You wag your tongue like
A flag in the wind
You’re words look nice but
They’re just symbolism
They left from your heart
All shiny and new
But they slipped from your lips
All battered used and abused

She’s got the key to cancel the crime
Pray she don’t talk

I don’t mind if
You need a hand
If to fall is your trick then
I am your man
Turn me on and
Plug me in
Wake me up
And I’ll let you in
I’m alive and
So is we
What’s this life if
You never get a little lonely

She’s got the key to cancel the crime
Pray she don’t talk
Cause the crime is mine
Track Name: Piece of the Pie
You say bigger’s better
But it don’t matter much
When you can’t feel a thing
Over the din of your lust
Reach for a piece of the pie
But you won’t touch the crust
It’s not the cut of the meat
But how you move it

Inject your protection
At the base of her spine
She’s a glove for your love
To slip itself inside
If it fits better yet
She’ll get the hanging thigh
It’s not the tool but
The style in which you shake it

She can’t take it

The fan on the ceiling is chopping your dreams up
And they fall on the beast with two backs and a gut plug
While it burns on the bed and attempts to construct love

She can’t take it
She can’t take it
She can’t take it
She can’t take it

Well you say bigger’s better
But it don’t matter much
If not the beast then you’re
Better off the glove
Track Name: Medicate Me
Doctor please won’t you please won’t you listen
I see a poison floating ‘fore my eyes
I’m at the brink of a bad decision
Amidst the sickness of a worried mind

Doctor won’t you
Medicate me
Have you a pill for
A life without meaning
Let me taste that
Special feeling
On my tongue
‘Fore my lounges
Cease breathing

I bite my lips and feel my nose start to bleeding
Then all my vision turns to black and white
I’m floating sideways towards the sky
I cross my eyes and hope for better luck next time

Doctor won’t you
Medicate me
Have you a pill for
A life without meaning
Let me taste that
Special feeling
On my tongue
‘Fore my lounges
Cease breathing
Doctor won’t you
Doctor won’t you
Medicate me

The light in the room won’t change my skin
I’ll have to adapt to what I am
Hot nights with no escape
Such love is worth the wait
It’s within my grasp but still to far away
Track Name: Me & You
It's just me and you
And everyone else in the room
Don't throw a fit now won't you
Don't throw a fit now

It's just you and I
And the rest of the goddamn island
Don''t throw a fit now won't you
Don't throw a fit now

Papas gone and looked the other direction
Mama's gone and lost herself to booze
I am in the corner painting pictures
For the children on the news

Half you're head
Is not too much to give
If this the life you live for
If this the life

The other half
Will follow where you lead
This is the life we live for
This is the life

Papas gone and looked the other direction
Mama's gone and lost herself to booze
I am in the corner painting pictures
For the children on the news

It's just me and you
And everyone else in the room
Don't throw a fit now won't you
Don't throw a fit now
