Track Name: Death Metal and Disco
There are too many sad songs in the world
So fuck you, I ain't writing another one
Though there's plenty to talk about this time of year
Well if we all just believe in something
They say we'll never have to fear
When the morning comes and she's no longer here

There are so many pretty girls in the world
But fuck you, I won't marry another one
Thought there's plenty who will break you just the same
If I could only marry my mother
And have sex with lots of strangers
It'd be chicken soup and mornings without shame

Oh Lord, you can strike me down
I'm just trying to sing the truth
Though you may not like the sound
Thank you for death metal and disco
by I'd trade 'em for the things I don't want to know

There are too many bloody wars in the world
So fuck you, I ain't starting another one
Though there's plenty reasons for a first strike
You know I'm not a real spiteful guy
But only fools say they don't mind
When another man's holding hands with his wife

Oh Lord, you can strike me down
I'm just trying to sing the truth
Though you may not like the sound
Thank you for Henry Miller and Thoreau
by I'd trade 'em for the things I don't want to know

There are so many hungry kids in the world
So fuck you, I ain't making another one
Though I'd love to see your face inside a child's
They say you don't know what you've got until what you've got is gone
So I'll hold on to you picture for a while

Oh Lord, you can strike me down
I'm just trying to sing the truth
Though you may not like the sound
Thank you for Len Dykstra and Shoeless Joe
by I'd trade 'em for the things I don't want to know
Track Name: None of These Things
Looks like you're gonna take the easy way out
I heard you on the telephone with a friend
You said, "Maybe we'll meet someday in the middle of the street?"
But I know I'll never see you again

The Santa Ana's blowing in a lullaby at dawn
Same one I've been listening to all night
I'll wake up in the same place tomorrow
And you'll be gone
And there won't even be a fight

There are train lines
There are bus rides
That will take you back and forth from bad to better lives
There are love songs
And there are desperate lives
But none of those things will keep you here
'Cause none of these things will make you love me

The clock reads the minutes that will turn into hours
And the hours that will turn us into ghosts
Your cup's here guarding time with dead and dying flowers
And I can't move it from it's post

There are train lines
There are bus rides
That will take you back and forth from bad to better lives
There are love songs
And there are desperate lives
But none of those things will keep you here
'Cause none of these things will make you love me

I don't expect you to and
I don't need you to and
I don't wish you would
I just wish you could
I just want to sleep
While the sorrow's cheap
But I think I hear your keys

There are train lines
There are bus rides
That will take you back and forth from bad to better lives
There are love songs
And there are desperate lives
But none of those things will keep you here
'Cause none of these things will make you love me

Looks like you're gonna take the easy way out
I heard you on the telephone with a friend
Maybe you'll whisper my name from an old widow's dream
Maybe I'll never see you again
Track Name: HELLp
There's a demon in my head
He's shaking 'round the bed
He's the saint of all my darkness and doubt

There's a winding, dead-end street
For the running of empty feet
Where I leave myself for blindness and fear

Oh, help me out
Lord, don't you see?
I'm a restless child
I don't believe
Oh, pull me up
So I can breath
Oh wear me out
I've been deceived
Yeah, I've been deceived

There's confusion all around
I hear the deafening sound
And I cannot find my way out of this maze

Is it the truth or just a trick
'Cause there is something making me sick
There is too much pain to weigh the right and wrong

Oh, help me out
Lord, don't you see?
I'm a restless child
I don't believe
Oh, pull me up
So I can breath
Oh wear me out
I've been deceived
Yeah, I've been deceived
