Track Name: Cage Madness
stuck behind cash registers
can't write a good folk song
and if Johnny Cash did it in jail
then he wasn't there very long
see the open road is the place to be
with adventures, sunsets and climbing trees

some days I just look out the window
some days I just look out the window
some days I just look out the window

and some days I just look at the ceiling
maybe draw a picture of how I’m feeling
some people say that that is wasting a day

but I still can’t hold down a real job
I get claustrophobic anxious and restless
some people say that that is wasting away

and now I’ve got a job that doesn’t have any windows
it just has computers
Track Name: Cat Song
she works long hour
I wonder if she has time to shower
does she think of me at all
while she is serving tables
I am fighting with staples
suggesting films that I haven’t seen before
she’s dressed in yellow
smiling at some fellow
but inside I hope she wants his blood
to rain from the sky
pour into a drain
seep out his eyes

and I’m not crazy
well a little maybe
but I hear now that we both got a cat
and if you’re allergic
you shouldn’t put one in your mouth
because you might get more than clawed at
she says she’ll see me
but her eyes they look weary
so I guess that is that
I think I’ll get another cat
a better job so I can make those little fuckers fat

and now we’re both collecting cats that we can die alone with
Track Name: Life As A Multicellular Organism
I became another attempt at your self medication
another habit you thought you needed but wanted to quit
and though it’s hard sometimes
and every day I sigh
at least we stopped before we became those things we hate

she sees a world so pretty she could explode
she sees a world so gritty and awful
she sees a world so pretty she could explode
she sees a world so gritty and awful

and I guess that is the way it is
and it wreaks havoc inside her brain
and I guess that is the way it is
life is pretty insane
I guess that is the way it is
god damn the moss growing on the rocks…
Track Name: A Growing Trend
you tried to find a job today
I heard it didn’t go very well
nobody wanted to employ you
damn it all to hell
I guess you’re being forced into supporting a growing trend

I call it
“waiting for the collapse of industrial society when we hit peak oil”

and the businessman they look at you and they laugh under their breath
your friends are all out at parties puffing out their chests
while you are being forced into supporting a growing trend

I call it
“waiting for the collapse of industrial society when we hit peak oil”
Track Name: Some Parts Repeat
I always hoped that these guitars would block out all your nightmares
I always hoped that these guitars would change the city you know
but you always run run run away when you see their shadows
you ran away from here and you never phone
I hope you run run run away and they don’t catch you
Because I saw them getting close and you were all alone
