Track Name: The Acrimony
I walked home without my shoes
Kiss him on the mouth for me
Smile and bear in mind
What you gave away was mine
Track Name: Disregard
Can you tell just by looking at my face
Where I woke up last night
Can you see on the back of my mind
Who I laid my head upon
There ain't a question in my head
That you could answer with that tongue
There ain't a word on the tip of my lips
You'd care to understand my son

So if you give me room to move
I will run so far away
And if you give me air to breathe
I will spit it out of my lungs
When they tear life out of my hands
I will kneel down at their feet
But if they dare return it to me
I'm making my bed down on 39th street

'Cause I don't know
Where I woke up so late last night
And I can't remember the girl
Who I laid my head upon
There ain't a question in my head
There's just a bitter taste on my tongue
And I've forgotten all the words
To that song so sweet and long
Track Name: Glass of Wine
He sees right through me
He wishes I'd get him drunk
Like I did
On the other side of the world

Why does he keep me
Is it out of some abusive
Wine-stained
Generosity

High enough on the shelf
Not high enough for anything else

Look how tall I am
On top of some building full of
Climate-controlled payrolls

High enough on the shelf
Not high enough for anything else
Track Name: Last July
I talked to someone else's problem
He was a little bit shorter than you
Don't interrupt me whilst I'm talking
I know that it's easy to do

And he's long gone by the time that he goes
If you follow
Or if you'd care to

I called him the cops
They said he'd had a bad month
He found him some money
He went and filled up his pill box

It was a little bit shorter than you
If you follow
Or if you'd care to

And as the man caught that bus
And the bus caught that man
And as the woman drank that water
And the water drank that woman
And as the girl took those drugs
And the drugs took that girl

And I sat there stone-dumb
And I didn't know where I was
I was a few blocks from home

I talked to someone else's problem
He said, "You got any money?"
Track Name: A Terrible Thing To Waste
Sometimes a mind gets terribly wasted
When thinking with it's hands
And it can wake up far from home
And singing in a band

With some fate-less intuition
That rends and tears and binds
It sits off in the distance
And loses track of time

Why did I come down here
What did I expect to find
So far from everyone I know
Losing each one at a time

Lord knows I can't drown myself in whiskey
My pay just ain't that high
But I can scar these bloodless lungs
Until I can't pronounce goodbye

One spoonful at a time
He disappeared from view
A crooked wooden box
Far uglier than you
Track Name: City Lullaby
Clean the pots and clean the pans
And lay your head in mother's hands
Don't you wake until the dawn
Has come again and night is gone

And she'll be there 'till you have grown
And you can set out on your own
Or stay
And wait for her to go

Plant the seeds and till the land
And lay your life in father's hands
Don't you ever leave the farm
And fool yourself with city charms

And he'll be there 'till you have grown
And you can set out on your own
Or stay
And wait for him to go
