Track Name: Vacation
foaming at the mouth
the truth comes out
and i wait on the red dock tape
there's still time
in the outhouse line
and i play quarters
with julie and blake
two weeks is too long
to be weak, when it's so easy
to get out and see. it's too late
to get out on the lake
stay in by the window
and breath out.
the flies have doubled in size
as we row to the other side
i hear a band and they're violent
and sad, and they're stoned
better leave it alone
there's still time
to get drunk and get a fine
or go to 'the river,' which
is the bar down the street.
i know laura and her friend
will be there playing scared
for you.
Track Name: Whiskey
whiskey is my favorite thing
see it in the lake as she swims
whiskey is my favorite thing

i like to think on you with him
whiskey is my favorite thing
and i hope to never see you again
whiskey is my favorite thing

let the sun dry the skin
whiskey is my favorite thing
let the rain chase you in
whiskey is my favorite thing

it's ok darling, i'm a failure too
just point the flash light
we're both full of time

because i know i'll never get out alive
whiskey's how i want to die
indian nightmare sky
whiskey's how i like to fly
Track Name: In The New Sea
your tongue came light
like a failure
and then it died
and over time
washed your hair
in the new sea
and if i miss you
then i failed
and if i did, then i tried
the weather's moving on
and i never felt more like dying
then the whiskey moon
came soaring in the fire
the trees were screaming out
and there was no one inside
it's done, it's done
but all the rolling little faces i find
slight and meaningless, trite and dim
but i'd like to hear the hoarse
colours in your voice
say go away
Track Name: Fall Song
no more talk on who wins
should be a new thing
rain falls on you
should be something
you want to do
it comes down in songs,
older songs
and stay long after they're gone
no more talk on new things
shouldn't be who wins
i heard an old song
i need a new one
i hear you're asking
i see your loving
in the old ways,
and the fall's changed
after work's been done
should it be easy
to ask for what's yours.
Track Name: Divorce
the song is in the river
or the river is in the song
we can take it easy
where the wicked all roam
careful little sunday
careful with you always
we can be released
by the speaking of his name
one name, we can say it
one name, to wait for
lightning struck the fence
the radio talked her into it
leaves started to dance
to the meaning of the words
careful little sunday
careful with you always
we can be released
by the speaking of his name
one name, we can say it
one name, to wait for
(you're already home)
