Track Name: Russian Blue
Think about what you’ll say, think about reasons
Thousands pass by

We all work hard. There is a common bond

Get back with me. Always smile
Get back with me sooner than you thought
Track Name: Dolphin Blue
I never cared, she never noticed
There’s a long road ahead of me now
She’s got a car crash body and a mind full of blow
I’ve got to get rid of her

Checking my pulse, drinking again
Flushed cheeks, wet wrists
I’m nervous but I’m not afraid
You will find me

When you talk the way you do
You’ve taken me back
When you move the way you do
You’ve taken me back

I always return but never can stay
I’m making money
She’s setting her eyes on the Diamond Exchange
I’ve got to get rid of her

A lucrative touch with comfortable friends
What’s your secret?
Implying I’m not ashamed
You will find me

When you talk the way you do
You’ve taken me back
When you move the way you do
You’ve taken me back
Track Name: Swimming & Crawling
Swimming around in Webb Pierce’s Pool
I can crawl in there
In the guitar pool, I can crawl in there

Swimming around in Webb Pierce’s Pool
I get lost in there
In the guitar pool, His place is where I want to be

There is tension, surface tension
I can crawl on water

Swimming around in Webb Pierce’s Pool
With my brother there
In the guitar pool, I can crawl in there

Swimming around in Webb Pierce’s Pool
I get lost in there
In the guitar pool, His place is where I want to be

There is tension, surface tension
I can crawl on water
Track Name: Wanting to Celebrate
She calls me up to see if I’m alive
In French, In vain
The sun shines
I light a cigarette to milk my heavy lungs
And try to forget my problems

Wanting to celebrate
You’re faint and apprehensive dear
Pearls, candles, chandeliers
All that’s done while wearing black

Alone I wait
Content? I wouldn’t know
Forever a past of marble
These days worse than death
I take them with a sigh
Watchful, indifferent and mortal
Track Name: Second Coming
I think that I could suck you in
I think there’s some left on the sides
It’s been close before
I swear to god it might be

The calm come near, the nervous speak
I start to comment on you softly

A yellow room, a block away
Are you coming back to my place?
Don’t feel shy. It’s your right to go

So many drown though sinking swim
We only needed pot and jazz
Left waiting like a ghost, second coming

Bullshit the dead will rise again
What would you do if I knew nothing?

Another life, another day
Are you coming back to my place?
It’s all right. Won’t you try to go?
Track Name: Don't Have a Gun
Am I a loser if I don’t have a gun?
I can’t drink and drive anymore
How will I get to work now?

I can’t decide if it’s right
I can’t decide on much of anything
I can’t decide if it’s right
I can’t decide on much of anything at all

There comes a time to die
There’ll come a time where I’ll lose everything
I can’t decide if it’s right
I can’t decide on much of anything at all

How will I get to work?
Track Name: Rest of the World
Do you really want to deal with the rest of the world?
I know I don’t

I don’t really want to deal with it
Track Name: Meat Digging
I just wanted to relax
I never wanted any part in that
To see the way the wicked go, Abednego

Life isn’t much here, I’d quit on a dime here

There’s no kindness in my heart
It’s been years now, Abednego
The highs are low
Meat digging now? Are we Abednego?

I just wanted this to pass
I never wanted anything to last
The spine you lack is not your own, Abednego

Life isn’t much here, I drink all the time, dear

There’s no kindness in my heart
It’s been years now, Abednego
The highs are low
Meat digging now? Are we Abednego?

(You know it’s been years now)
Track Name: Tuna Blue
Johnny wake up, seven-thirty
Is it more than you asked for?
She wants you on a rooftop
Catch a feel, get away

If you were wholesome I could give you what you need
It’s a comfort thing
Separation
Skies are dark, stars are brighter
It would be wonderful

In seclusion, weakened also
Could you change if you wanted?
The money spent, Love is a one night stand
Catch a feel, get away
