Track Name: Ginger Chew
I can tell you're wicked
there's no need to prove yourself
or that you are thru all the frenzied things we see
trash of all trash
oh and this is now and you may depend on it
Track Name: Lychee Gold
Every day I'm working on my brown bag game
Tesco shopping without you's a shame
and aisle after aisle after aisle is the same
when I'm looking for my favorite thing to easy my burning pain

I sit and pull it open wide
I sit and watch the world go by
In line for a Lychee Gold

Oh, every day I'm working on my brown bag game
Tesco shopping without you's a shame
and aisle after aisle after aisle is the same
when I'm looking for my favorite thing to easy my burning pain

I sit and pull it open wide
I sit and watch the world go by
the red of the trees and the blue of the sky
In line for a Lychee Gold
Track Name: Sweetmeats
There's a hunger on the hill
maybe too much to fill
I want those sweet chunks,
the succulent sweet lumps.
Sweetmeats! Sweetmeats!
Oh don't i just die for you?
Sweetmeats, sweetmeats, oh
Even Johnny had to go too
You can taste it in the air
a sickly sweet perfume fair
the blood drips from my sill
a meatpie cooling still
You can taste it in the air
a sickly sweet perfume fair
the blood drips from my sill
a meatpie cooling still
Track Name: Pandarang
Oh,
come on take me
you're not the one, baby you're the one
ain't it fine how i ain't got time for running round
come on take me you're not the one baby you're the one
ain't it fine how i ain't got time for running
walking to the park little choosy buying meaty pies foe my susy
putting sugar into my milky chai isn't this a nice time for you and i?
oh come on take me you're not the one
baby you're the one
ain't it fine how i ain't got time for running round
come on take me you're not the one
baby you're the one
ain't it fine?

isn't this a nice time?
Track Name: All The Finer Things
How can it be I keep a smile on me?
A hair on your pillow reminds you of me
so sweet

and all the finer things in life i give to you

to be satisfied with warm food and your friends
to fill up a life with kind women and men
and me
Track Name: Lycée Noir
Oh hear my song
my thoughts are gently spiraling
I hope to be retiring quite soon
with all these fantasies i don't know where i am
I'm a wandering horrorshow horrorshow
To see his blood splatter
to hear his teeth shatter
watch his bones scatter all to the wind
Cause i get really fucking ma it's something i do when i'm down

I was ready for him
i was ready for him
ready for him
i was ready for him
ready for him
i was ready for him
ready for him
i wa ready for him
ready for him
i was ready for him
ready for him
i was ready for him
Track Name: GDB
This house was built with a throne
and the times of trust are over
This house was built with a throne
and the times of trust are over
I love that feeling when the floor opens up
and i can see all my land below me
I love that feeling when the floor opens up
but i seem to find myself surrounded by felons

I think that this guy's in love
he shared times that were drenched in blood
the full moonrise of his pickup truck
i think that this guy's in love
Track Name: Don Quixote
Call ahead before you're home so I know
So I know sometime before
so i know
me and Poirot lunch alone and i'm bored
where's the wine I've drunk it all
guess i'm broke

Don Quixote's in my sleep so I'm told
fighting battles in my sleep so i'm told

And I need a love that knows the way to go
and i can't go on thinking bout the things i should have been
my day goes on my list grows long
i can't go on thinking bout the things i should have been.
Track Name: Take Time
Take time,
call your mother
show you love her
oh, such sweet goodbyes
Take Time with a lover,
rolling under muggy afternoons
Cicadas ringing cathedrals singing
you'll know when it's the quarter hour
fresh picked read flowers sweet smelling showers
of late September golden rain.
Track Name: Desperado
i’m a double-jawed hyena from the east
if she’s the celebrated sister i’m the beast
when i see a desolated town hear me growl
but i may never count myself among the greats

and I know i gotta lot of work to do
i’ve got time
if she’s the celebrated sister of my mind

broken light out the window of the county jail
behold a flash the turnkey’s lost his way
stumbled past a spider’s spell
smash the bottle and pry the cell

quick as weeds and i’m stealing the fat mayor’s horse (no name)
give a wink to his wife while i’m stealing his horse (the old game)
half a mind to pay my respects one last time
double jaw don’t act a fool
quit the town and keep your cool

alone
alone


and after sometime on my own
one voice alone replies
from the heavens above a man with no name
found me where the earth meets the sky
we ride thru the night saddle chaps to the bone
till the morning we’re covered in dew
and i wake to find my eyes crusted wide
no horse no man just the blue i’m a fool
