Track Name: scary movies
haunted houses in worn out places
crooked walls make ugly faces
scary movies with shiny knives
reflecting shadows and bloodshot eyes

shut your ears, he said
but open your eyes
floorboards creaking
will kill the surprise

scary movies
try to fool me
but there's enough out here
to make me live in fear

great bomb shelters and missing kids
grumbly tummies on all of the grids
drunken homebums with shiny knives
hoping only to sleep through the night

scary movies
try to fool me
but there's enough out here
to make me live in fear
Track Name: pet names
oh darling, you're so alarming
oh sweetie, your eyes are so beady

don't you know that we're nothing
don't you know that we're everything
don't you know that the sun without the moon
is just sending its light off into doom

oh honey, you are like money
oh sweetie pie, you hurt my eyes

don't you know that we're nothing
don't you know that we're everything
don't you know that the sun without the moon
is just sending its light off into doom
Track Name: while loop
livin' by the water
i spent so many days
livin' by the water
i swam in the waves
livin' by the water
i met so many babes
livin' by the water
i washed away

yip-a-oo-a-oo

livin' in the country
i took care of the maize
livin' in the country
i met some babes
livin' in the country
i learned how to behave
livin' in the country
all the stars were ablaze

yip-a-oo-a-oo

livin' in the city
i got lost every day
livin' in the city
i worked out the maze
livin' in the city
i saw so many babes
livin' in the city
i wasted away

yip-a-oo-a-oo
Track Name: hyatt regency
the basement floor of the hyatt regency
a group of ladies workin' real collectively

the basement floor
a newly whitewashed door
Track Name: granny smith apples
i tried running away from you
but my legs don't have a point of view
waited until the sky was black
crawled into a potato sack

like granny smith apples
granny smith apples

apples soaking in vinegar
like our house built out of apple cores
places like playgrounds
playground-like places

like granny smith apples
Track Name: casa maria
i found solid ground
where there were bellies wide
and sounds around
my ears tingling
growing always in sensitivity

why don't you take me
to casa maria, casa maria
to casa maria, please tell me i'll see ya

did you ever think
that there was more to life
than food and drink?
maria's philosophy
is that those thoughts
are just naivety

why don't you take me
to casa maria, casa maria
to casa maria, please tell me i'll see ya
to casa maria, tell me where to meet ya
Track Name: strawberry
tryin' to nurse a plant who
won't grow with the stuff that i do
just like when i met you
couldn't drag you out of the blue

and now my mouth tastes like butter
and you are bored with all the clutter

just like a strawberry
a rotting strawberry

givin' you lots of sunlight
but you went and caught blight
wanted you to be all mine
forgot that you are not a vine

and now the air is getting cooler
the leaves are drooping like vancouver

you are my strawberry
you taste so good you are so sweet
but every time the sun recedes
you turn into a rotting heap of

strawberry
a rotting strawberry
Track Name: above the couch
holy rain
that left the door unlocked
you never asked
why it was such a fuss

and you left
your name above the couch
you wandered and waited for
an hour to pass

if you had only asked to come inside
you'd know that it's alright
to ask for shelter from the rain

it bites, the wind
oh i know that
your red face
assures that

and the creases in your hands
tell me you've gone for days
hold your own face
picture your own face

i promised
nothing to you
nobody knows you
they can't see you

you'll never notice
the way
the cold tastes
just like the grey

some are crazed
crazed
