Track Name: Dogs of Perfection
DOGS OF PERFECTION

the killer is the only thing
that's in your heart

the wings are all in your teeth
my jaw is cash

look at me i am hollow

your step is in behind the night
it leans on my mind

the battle axe swings from your eyes
and into mine

look at me i am hollow

did you watch me from a far
how could you feel that i held heart

what ties us all is life
we never roll away
what ties us all is life
we never roll away

the only thing we ever had
came from our heart

everything is on my side
till i meet you cold

what ties us all is life
we never roll away
what ties us all is life
we never roll away.
Track Name: Ready to Die
READY TO DIE


well if it's true what they say about ya
you got me and i'm down for what ever now

if you dance like a Paris heart
i'll go and find the funk and i'll come right back.

oh girl i'm ready to die

fly like inside a tiger
you got me and i'm down for what ever now

when the wind comes tan i'll surprise you
i follow every moon way down off the track

oh girl i'm ready to die

i know the things that you do
it makes me hurt
i know the things that you say
it makes me
i know the things that you want to do to me
i know you think it's okay

you in high river style
the only way is blue on the borderline 

when the stars come on high beam halo
the boys are coming in to enslave your brain

oh girl i'm ready to die.
Track Name: Black Frog
BLACK FROG

if you know what you want
and you know what you need
but you say what they want
then be free
I'm going to tell it to them

see how it feels 
and now your words are on wheels
 they will just push you along
so what you're gonna kill it for me?

do you want to get by with us
do you want to get high with us

every night when we get home
we get drunk and we get stoned
the fight is never far away
you make it good
you may get saved

if you go it alone 
their going to say that you're not
when they don't let you know its too much
you will end up working on it
know what you want
know what you need
but you say what they want
then be free
you gonna kill it for me?

do you wanna get by with us
do you want to get by with us

every night when we get home
we get drunk and we get stoned
the fight is never far away
you make it good
you may get saved

look at the sun 
it sits there for me
but i just want to fire.
Track Name: One Sock
ONE SOCK

All the others
kiss my brother
on his head

i was wishing 
i was kissing you instead

so i wanted summer
and i cut that rope

i went to the room 
and i locked that door

she told me to loud knock
on her door

you know you're really one soul

she told my brothers
that i was trouble
and i was

i started thinking 
i was sinking in my beer

so i reached for the light
but the light was low

so you know about your gun
but not from the floor 

she told me to loud knock 
on her door

you know you're really one soul
Track Name: Perfect Lover
PERFECT LOVER

 you know that i'm your perfect lover
 and you know that i'm your perfect lover
 i'm not going to lift a finger to make you call

dance with me baby
i know you want to dance
i know because it's in your eyes

yeah, you don't make me wait
you don't make me cry
you don't make me fall out,
i want to know where you are

you know that i'm your perfect lover
and you know that i'm your perfect lover
i'm not going to lift a finger to make you call

drive with me baby
i know you want to drive
i know because it's in your heart

yeah, you don't make me wait
you don't make me cry
you don't make me fall out
i want to know where you are

California be our sky tonight
in this super stardom
its a blood ring
you couldn't be better
you should be calm
and you should be home

you should be home
dancing with me so alone
you should be home
dancing with me so in love

you know that I'm your perfect lover
and you know that I'm your perfect lover
and I'm not going to lift a finger to make you call

dance with me baby
smile with me honey 
i just smiled in the streetlight
with all the electronica.
Track Name: Winter Sun
WINTER SUN

you don't lean back on anyone
you disappear but i don't mind
you're waiting for the winter sun to change

you hollow out and see the light
real freedom is hard to find
you're waiting for the winter sun to change

if i was the radio and you were truth
you know you couldn't trust me
i really couldn't trust in you

underneath the denim sky
you disappear but i'm just shy
you're waiting for the winter sun to change

you're lying by the river side
every lie goes with its tide
both waiting for the winter sun to change

i am the radio and i am the truth
you know you shouldn't trust me
i really wouldn't trust in you

i want to be the one 
in the morning by the setting sun
waiting for the winter sun to change

if i was the radio and you were truth
you know you couldn't trust me
i really wouldn't trust in you
Track Name: Spiders
SPIDERS

there are spiders inside your neck
but you won't admit to it

there are crows up inside your head
but you won't understand or give a damn

well its getting late
but i will wait

there are crows up inside of your feet
but you won't admit to it

there are spiders in your hair
but you don't even care
who put them there

well its getting late but i will wait

on and on we roll like death in a can
comfort in silence love and violence

and its getting late
but i will wait

there is ink up inside of your brain
but it all looks the same

on and on we roll like death in a can
comfort in silence
love and violence
ink in your eyelids
crows and spiders
Track Name: Candyman Shimmer
CANDYMAN SHIMMER

candyman shimmer
candyman turn
look at the sun 
it's in a honey jar

we spin for the people
we spin for the people

the highway is in my
blue over coat
blue turtle neck
pulled way above my blue eyes

we spin for the people
we spin for the people

oh oh yeah I shimmer
I shimmer oh x4

shimmer in the rain

the car is on fire
with evergreen ghosts
the dreams i had
when i hit the coast

we spin for the people
we spin for the people 

candyman shimmer
candyman turn
look at the sun
it's in a honey jar

we spin for the people
we spin for the people

shimmer in the rain

we are heading into the stars tonight
it's alright
we are heading into the storm tonight
it's alright
Track Name: Jet Plane
JET PLANE

we're going to run the night girl
we're going to run tonight
run the whole night down girl
down to the morning light

meet me by edge of the town
down by the apple tree
you know the one i mean girl
where i first laid eyes on thee

cadet plane wanted me
jet plane

meet me by the edge of the road girl
down by the apple tree
you know the one i mean girl
where i first laid eyes on thee

meet me by the edge of the train girl
don't make me wait no more
you know the one that's going up
the one that i'm taking off.

cadet plane wanted me
jet plane
cadet plane wanted me
jet plane

jet plane
i got it in my brain

jet plane
i got it in my brain
Track Name: My Brother
MY BROTHER

my brother 
he won't be home to father
he sold his dope on the streets of Rome
now that is where his ashes are blown

now my mother works in the fields alone
my father, he cried to the moon

i took my brothers book a bound
i put my brothers words to sound
every word it rang well
in the name of isabella estelle

i am alone on the moor 
the arrows and bows
flow free through thy blood

he won't be home to father
he swung his axe through the fields of Rome 
now that is where his ashes are blown.
