Donna Said 02:48
Am I falling out of favor? Am I maybe not your flavor? Pour my heart onto the table Trade it in for cash Because I want the money Oh yeah I want it bad When you got feelings and guitar You wanna trade it for cash Donna said Donna said Donna said Donna said It’s in my head (x2) Belly up to the bar now Help me get this thought down Come on let’s draw the map When you got feelings and guitar You wanna trade em for cash Because I need the dollars I spent the two I had They passed like running water Thru my hand

I was busy Gilding Lillies And getting high to the music Losers do it There’s nothing to it They’re getting high to the music Move it or lose it Had it and blew it On getting high to the music They’re talking cryptic You’re seeing thru it You gotta go where the truth is You gotta go where the truth is I’m getting high to the music

Spike 01:22
Feet on the desk Boss in the chair Carried the coffee Up three flights of stairs He drove up In an electric car I’m pinching pennies To fix the guitar Step up on some grapes They want wine They want twice the results In half of the time It’s a sick world No cure in sight Spot of bother With my shock collar The voltage has suddenly Spiked Have fun And pay me You’ve had your fun Now pay me Minor infraction Major disdain I’m a living container For man-made pain I watched you fire the bullet And swallow the casing You threw away nuance And ate sensation When the micro-dropper Hits the blotter I’ll put my brain On the spike Give a man a fish He eats for a day Give a man two fish He throws one away

Broadway 02:26
The band on stage With the amps too loud They play better With nobody around And if you need me You know where I’m found And if you need me It’s Broadway It’s dinner theater at best I dropped my drink ticket Make that a single I guess It’s Broadway It’s musical theater It’s birds gathered At an empty feeder I’ve been destroyed by life And I feel fuckin good I sold the wheels to the wagon And now sparks shoot when it drags I trade my time for money Any chance that I have Because no one needs me I’m a passing fad No one needs me It’s Broadway It’s dinner theater at best I dropped my drink ticket Make that a single I guess It’s Broadway It’s musical theater It’s birds gathered At an empty feeder

Tranquilizer 02:53
Bucked off the horse you rode in on Cause you didn’t know it’s name Gene’s tombstone says “no other” But heaven knows we’re all the same Tranquilizer stuck inside my neck I think ill just rest my eyes for a sec 
 I feel the world under my feet It’s up to my ankles now Now it’s around my knees I stuck my finger in concrete And wrote my name 
 Maybe I’ll deprive my senses Let them suffocate and die Do the limbo under a rainbow Looking up at the stars How’d they get so high? 
 Tranquilizer stuck inside my neck Maybe I’ll just rest my eyes for a sec

Lucky Day 03:55
You think you’ve got it made Today’s your lucky day Never read the signs You tarry every time You gotta go (x4) Never learned the trade There’s money to be made You see through tranquil eyes You tarry every time You gotta go (x4) I work You eat I got it I got a new leash You pull yourself by the straps But who pays for the boots You think you’ve got it made Today’s your lucky day Never read the signs You tarry every time You gotta go (x4)

Bunny's Taxi 04:02
The sun shines on San Francisco Like a light at the dentist’s office Glaring into an open mouth And then the drill powers on You’re staring down the barrel Of Harry’s gun And he asks you Do you feel lucky, punk? Come on and do what you want If it makes you feel good How could it be wrong Come on and do what you want to I threw my cares off a cliff I didn’t care who I hit A tourist shouted in French But it’s all Greek to me Invoice received, checks are cut Case closed, open and shut And if you need me I’m watching tv in the oven With a gun to the back of my head Fuck You’re staring down the barrel Of a bastard’s gun And he asks you Do you feel lucky, punk? Come on and do what you want If it makes you feel good How could it be wrong Come on and do what you want to I threw my cares off a cliff I didn’t care who it hit A taurus shouted in French But it’s all greek to me

Empty can blows across the street Sun is beating down hard Walking down commerical, Gal says “I heard so and so’s in town this weekend” You say, “Sounds fun” Etcetera Your lips are dry and sticking to your teeth You say, “I wish I had a Coca-Cola” And you cover your mouth Like it’d make the words not come out And the genie cackles behind you As you open your mouth to argue He says, “Of course that counts- It also counted when you said ‘I wish my parents would leave me alone’ You should’ve wished for more wishes” Empty van baking in the sun And collecting heat Waiting to blast it all into your face The next time you slump into that chair Whizzing down a big long road A song you know plays on the station you like It reminds you of summers you spent Working at your uncle’s factory Where they build the hammers It taught you a lesson about humility And it’s hard to feel it all sometimes (x4) The hammer comes down

Mum’s the word Dad’s the boss Birdie croaked Sister sobbed Uncle Marty Working down at the jail Doggie running Chasing after his own tail I’m taking inventory Come crunch the numbers for me What’s new with you? Maggie’s moving To NYC Back to Fresno Safe plan B Joey’s reading Communist lit He just started But he thinks he gets it I’m taking inventory Come crunch the numbers for me What’s new with you? Marco’s walking Down Les Champs Elysses Flash of the camera On his photogenic face Shake and sigh Today’s headline “Hero Cop Shoots 25” But Robbie’s been climbing, For exercise And he looks good
11.
I burnt the candle at both ends I went up And came down different That’s what I did (x4) Thank You So Much! You’re always so cooperative!

Fuck You! 03:33
I hope the apple falls far What about true love? I’ve heard people saying it’s blind Say it’s looking for me But I’m too hard to find Malkmus, Springsteen McCartney, Mackaye Getting all my wisdom From a dumb old guy I hope the apple falls far Did you hear the old man say? Sometimes the demon life Just gets in the way Blowing in the wind of pain Jerry was right, just listen To the music play I hope the apple falls far Dylan, Timony Jagger, and Mould Rent’s due on the 1st Put the dream on hold Rollins, Joplin Ash Bowie, and Lew Picking out lyrics For the next tattoo I hope the apple falls far Did you hear the old man say? Sometimes the demon life Just gets in the way Blowing in the wind of pain Jerry was right man, listen To the music play I hope the apple falls far
