Track Name: Wash it Down
striking up with the birds that I talk to
making out with a bottle at the end of the night
waking up in the dark with the cartoons
shake it off with a stagger into cold metal light

wash it down with toothpaste
oh its perfect for you
its as polished as tables for two
was this all a mistake
when you see it from here
you can see it so perfectly clear

try to talk to the birds with the white wing
right the end of the bottom with the edge of the moth
noon the carts in the dark on the up swing
metal light into cold staggers off of the front

was it wrong to say that
if its honest you want well
its honest as honest can be
is it hard to take that
if you swallow your pride
then its true that you are what you eat
wash it down with toothpaste
oh its perfect for you
its as polished as tables for two
was this all a mistake
when you see it from here
you can see it so perfectly clear
was this all a mistake
when you see it from here
you can see it so perfectly clear
was this all a mistake when you
see it from here
you can see it
so perfectly clear
Track Name: Knuckle Sandwich
and when you're gone
i'll start to beat the dog
i'll take it out
i know its not his fault
and when it's done
i know that i'm the one
i cant go on
with knowing what i've done
Track Name: Dakota
Oh baby please say it ain't so
Oh baby say it ain't so
Oh baby please say it ain't so
Oh baby say it ain't so

Hey baby when you coming home
Tho it's nice to hear you on the phone
I would rather see you with my own two eyes
Hug and squeeze you
Love you til the sun don't shine

Hey baby when you coming home
I'm getting sick of all this time alone
A little birdie told me you've been seeing other guys
Got my BB gun and shot it right between the eyes

Oh baby please say it ain't so
Oh baby say it ain't so
Oh baby please say it ain't so
Oh baby say it ain't so

Hey baby come back to the shore
In the city every day's a war
And I can't soak up all this sun all on my own
And I can't drink all this coke and rum all on my own

Hey baby please say it ain't so
Oh baby say it ain't so
Oh baby please say it ain't so
Oh baby say it ain't so

Oh baby please say it ain't so
Oh baby say it ain't so
Oh baby please say it ain't so
Oh baby say it ain't so
Track Name: Feather Hooks
You'll be one for
the record books
the record books
Put me down
for one more
I don't want on
those feather hooks
those feather hooks
You be strong
for mom and dad

You'll be one for
the record book
just wait and look
Count me down
for one more before
I don't want on
those feather hooks
those feather hooks
You be strong
for mom and dad
Track Name: Bleed
I've been
listening to your voicemails
to hear your voice on
my answering machine
you've been
gone for so long
and there's a void in
the spaces you should be
I've been
riding on your coattails
for far too long now
it's time I got my feet
back on
down a couple toenails
but what's the worst it could do
just let it bleed

I hear
whispers in the sunlight
of afterthoughts from
the summers dying leaves
I still
love to misattribute
my loneliness to
pursuing nineties dreams
you've got
quite the misconception
of what it means
to be meaningful it seems
now there's
quite a gaping hole in my chest
and I think it's best
just let it bleed
