Track Name: I Work Alone, Kid
oh the truth, well it can hurt sometimes
despite what I'd find
in all the books and fancy papers by
professors of mine
they say that I take too much time
building castles in skies
I think I'd rather cross a line
then get left behind

when I wrote this down I thought of you,
I've been sitting on two
out of ten, that's where I've been of late
I can't wrestle fate
the walls have all come crumbling down
from where they stood adored
and I keep knocking
I won't stop knocking on your door

to be or not, it's an equal shame
when all that's won is someone else to blame
and you feel dry and wasted beyond complaint
I'll play the demon, and you the saint

from what they say, I think that time's a thief
and we get caught in his teeth
his shining grin like porcelain. . .
and his eyes red as sin
the people lie and abide his constant push
and the frightening grip
in short I'd rather live and die
without knowing the time!

I know the future it's hard to face
when it's so muddy and built to break
I know its function, to keep us in place
ooh, it suits me better to try and escape

so nothing ever stays the same
you cannot fight what cannot be tamed
I know you'll hear what I'm trying to say
forget the hours and go seize the day
Track Name: Hold On!
when I saw you standing there
my eye was caught, trapped as I stared
into the darkness and confusion
in your eyes, a storm was brewing
I could never leave well enough alone

I know it's true, I did you wrong
what's even worse, I wrote a fucking song
to drive away all the tears and pain
you locked your heart, and cursed my name
no, I don't blame you, who really could

well,
holding onto something that's not there
holding onto something you don't care
holding onto something that's not there
holding on to hold on

now time has passed us by since then
there's a new boy you're living in
and it kills me, damn it kills me
you and I were something, really
all I want is to kiss you goodbye

so what is left for me to say
I think about you night and day
I'd walk 10,000 miles to see you
burn all my records just to hear you
sing.

well,
holding onto something that's not there
holding onto something you don't care
holding onto something that's not there
holding on to hold on to you
Track Name: Through the Rye
I met you when I was young
to an empty vessels limb you clung
to save your life with cheek and tongue
from punch drunk suckers, I was one
I didn't know how to speak love,
until her body.

I stole a kiss
and she a lung
there won't be rest
until it's
done.
and the morning comes
to find us as one

should a body meet a body
coming through the rye
should a body catch a body
need a body cry?
should a body meet a body
coming through the glen
should a body kiss a body
need the world know?

now as I sleep I begin to dream
I saw your face, in the light it gleamed
we saw the start yeah, you know what I mean
go through the motions and ditch this scene
I didn't know how to speak love,
until her body.

I stole a kiss
and she a lung
there won't be rest
until it's
done.
and the morning comes
to find us as one

should a body meet a body
coming through the rye
should a body catch a body
need a body cry?
should a body meet a body
coming through the glen
should a body kiss a body
need the world know?
if nothing good comes from this night
at least we'll know we felt alright
despite the lying, despite the shame
despite the people, despite the blame
I am glad to have known your name,
to have known your name,
I'm glad to know your name
I'm glad to know your name
Track Name: O, Lazybones
so they tried to find the words,
there weren't any nouns or verbs
to help them illustrate
images that tend to bend, and break
and they tried to paint it too,
I'd have colored me with you
but no color would suffice
for the lofty tales of men and mice

how long will you lay there, how long will you stay?
o, lazybones
how long will you lay there,
when will you rise from your sleep?

a little sleep, a little slumber
carries me, as I'm swept under, oh
by waves with crooked speech;
winking of eyes, shuffling of feet
oh, whatever can I do?
I cannot speak, I cannot move
and I'm sorry you had to wait,
I'm sorry I was so late, so late

things fall apart, and can't be picked back up again...

shit creek
never ever seemed
so deep
it's tough to swim with
iron feet
but I'll keep paddling away
I will not rest 'til my last day

I tried to tell you please,
please don't think any less of me
for being immature,
and being so unsure, unsure
and for being honest too,
cause honestly, I am not you
it's time to go, move and travel on
when I get lonely, I'll sing this song...

shit creek
never ever seemed
so deep
it's tough to swim with
iron feet
but I'll keep paddling away
I will not rest 'til my last day

how long will you lay there, how long will you stay?
o, lazybones
how long will you lay there,
when will you rise from your sleep?
Track Name: I Loves You, Porgy
I wants to stay here, but I ain't worthy
you are too decent to understand
for when I see him, he hypnotized me
when he takes hold of me, with his hot hands.

someday I know he's comin' back, to call me.
he's going to handle me and hold me so
it's gonna feel like dyin' porgy, deep inside me
but when he comes, I know I'll have to go...

I loves you Porgy, don't let him take me
don't let him handle me and drive me mad
if you can keep me, I wants to stay here
with you forever, and I'd be glad.
