Track Name: Gimme A Grab
THE WATER IN MY MIND
THE WATER IN MY MINE
THE WATER IN MY MIND
THE WATER IN MY MINE


gimme a grab and i'll give you the gun with which to shoot me
we all got money when we all got jobs
gimme a stab and i'll bleed all over a canvas
we all got brushes we all got touches we all got tongues

so let's talk about it. i ain't talkin now. let's talk about it. let's talk it raw.

if i'd-a-made-a-wish-i-wouldn't-a-wished-for-this
no mercy.
i got my toolbox, i'll get my trade.
if i'd-a-made-a-play-it-would-a-not-got-away
no mercy.
we all got eyes we all got ears we all got legs

so let's run from it. i ain't talkin now. let's run away from it. you show me how. let's make a run for it! yr talkin now! i'm makin a run for it cos you showed me how!

the water in my mind it sure looks fine but when i drink it down i make and awful frown. the water in my mine it sure looks wine but when i drink it down i make an awful frown o the doctor is sick and the patient is well so take all yr tricks and just go to hell the doctor is sick of my patience as well, it took all yr tricks to pull me up out of hell THANKS!


the water that i chug is a rough drug save for when i sip it. this ain't mississippi. these ain't delta blues. the water in my thoughts, it don't do what it ought cos it don't make tears that are worth their salt but i won't be a pillar. wouldn't that be killer?

so let's drink some water, let's drink it dry. let's get some water comin up out our eyes. let's drink some water, you left me a lil daughter! you left me a ghost, right when i needed it most!
i know what boys like
i know what guys want
i know what boys like
i know what guys want
they talk about me and i wish they wouldn't
come on, you guys.
Track Name: Ghost Killer
GHOST KILLAH!

i killed me a ghost and i buried the body but for a trophy i kept the sad head. put it up on a fencepost, christ it sure looked ungodly. the grotesque reminder of the lot of the dead.

there are those that must pass by, i laugh as they try to keep their eyes down, keep 'em pinned to the ground. I mean, who's got the stomach to face yard art in such bad taste?

it had come up in my house with it's boos and its howls, disrupting my sleep, i awoke in a rage. challenged to fight for its right to my life, my knife was unsheathed, we squared off, blade to shade.

i'll admit, it fought bravely, but a wee bit too gravely. it was I brought it down, and it made such a sound as it perished all over again, hoping this time could be finally the end.

there are those who may laugh, i know not what at,
but o what it's been when my voice has joined in.
my mind was out the window, my heart was rent in twain. every time i heard the wind blow i heard the sad refrain:

"let the dead rain upon us
"let their piss fall upon our heads."


i won't let the dead reign!

let the dead bury their own dead.

Track Name: julie
julie where'd you go?
i'm throwin rocks at yr window
and i don't know what you know
but i know it's not no

and i live beside yr house
and i touch it with my hand
and i'll live until i'm dead
til it's all gone again

better times will come
when i'm done suckin my thumb
when i'm done givin it all away

i like a lot of things that i'm quite ashamed of
and i know it's not yr glove lyin in this puddle of


my mouth done run away with all the foolish things i say while all them foolish things i think got me stranded in this drink
everybody's got a paddle and we call a spade a spade, staving off that silly rattle, we will all be laid (to waste)
i know everybody lies,
i know everybody dreams,
i know everybody thinks of things they won't admit to seeing
everybody gets it honest
everybody tells those lies
everybody's mouth is modest
when we wish our tongues had stayed tied



i better shut my eyes
i better not get down
i better stand up now and walk around
Track Name: There's Never Enough Butter
my god how i got no family
my god how i got no money
my god how i got no plans to be anything but yr honey
my god how i got my late late nights
my god how i got my whiskey
my god how i got my animal rights
my god how i love to get frisky

and god knows, god knows
god knows i'm greedy so honey come and get me
god know god knows

my boy i can picture the way that you sit
behind that big old drum kit
i want you holdin me as tight as you hold them sticks
baby you'll be mine and you'll like it



god only knows what i'm thinkin
god only knows what i'll say
god knows that i been drinkin
and god knows to stay out of my way
god only knows what i'm plannin
and god only knows what i'll do
but god knows i done in Shannon
and god knows i'm comin for you

Track Name: Things
no way is this gonna go!
no way is this gonna go!
no way is this gonna go away!

things will go this way every time
things have gone this way every time
things have gone this way on my dime
things is things, the only things we find

things will go this way every time
things have been this way all the time
every time you talk about it, everyone's a mime
every time you think about it, every thought's a sign
every time you dream about it, every dream's a crime
things like this happen all the time!

got a trash can full of ideas,
strike a match and set them all on fire, please
i'm getting cold and i could really stand to warm my hands.
Track Name: It's Yrs
PETER PARKER NO MORE!

never mind the questions, can i make a suggestion? it's better to be safe and throw that book away!

never mind the answers, we don't get second chances, still, i love the way that we communicate

i'm leaving on a jet plane, it hit me like a freight train that we built it on a flood plain, there's no one left to blame

never mind the problems, there's no way to prevent them, we can only try to clean up after the mess is made

never mind solutions, this is my contribution, i only tried to mess up so we could be made clean

i'm leavin on a greyhound, one that's headed northbound, suitcase to a new town, there's no one left to blame!

not me, cos i don't want this anymore!
you can have it, you can have it, it's yrs

if all i want is numbness, i think i'm makin progress
baby i don't blame you, but baby i ain't blind
never mind the secret, i know not how to keep it,
baby i don't blame you but this one isn't mine.

not me cos i don't want this anymore

you can have it, you can have it
you can have it, you can have it
you can have it, you can have it,
it's yrs!!
