Track Name: Dude Becomes Sea
They tried to keep us below, so we took the whole ship.
They tried to make us row, so we steered off a cliff.
And in the belly of the boat, among the rats and the plague,
we gave one hundred good treasons. One hundred good lives.

And now, the bottom.

May the tides wash our better sides
ashore to was the pain of all of those we left behind.
Think about me on the stormy nights, forever lost at sea.

Non-believer, don't you dare sail over me.
Land-crawler, don't you test my calm.
I left a love above for petty destiny, forever lost at sea.

I'm 73 percent of the planet, but damn it,
I just cannot get back to where I belong.
Long gone are the days I trampled and grazed
beneath the fiery gaze of the sun.
Track Name: Here Comes the Plague
What about when the inside joke
involves everyone outside of you?

They say, "Here comes trouble.
Here comes the plague."
I'm only saying, they get out on the double.
Must got myself to blame.
Well, I pass a fist to that fucking list.
I slit the wrist for game.
Or maybe I'll cower like a little shit,
so we can all be the same.

What about when the inside joke
involves everyone outside of you?

I kill every plant
I break everything that I touch.
But I was raised by the Beast himself.
What makes you think you'll do much?
To me? I be the king
(of things not worth reigning.)
Your job was finished before it even started.
So take that finger you been pointing,
put it where the rubbers go.

What about when the inside joke
involves everyone outside of you?
Track Name: I Want to Solve the Problems in Your Dress
Lift your skirt for me.
Lift your skirt for me.
Lift your skirt, and let it shine.
I want to solve the problems in your dress.
I'd cause such a mess.
I'll be waiting across the street when his taxi comes.

I promise you he'll never know. That fool will never know.
It's just a little white lie in your big black bed.

I love it when you come down.
I love it when you go down.
I love it when you come down.
I love it when you go down, down, down.
I hope you make some room for me when he leaves town.

Treat me like dog I am.
The dirty old dog I am.
It's so much wise than you had heard.
Lend some compassion to me,
and I'll put the detachment in you.
I think we both know what we've got to do.

I promise you he'll never know. That fool will never know.
It's just a little white lie in your big black bed.

I love it when you come down.
I love it when you go down.
I love it when you come down.
I love it when you go down, down, down.
I hope you leave a key for me when he leaves town.

I love it when you come down.
I love it when you go down.
I love it when you come down.
I love it when you go down, down, down.
I hope his plane enters the sea when he leaves town.
Track Name: The New Cleavage
And when she come for you,
you'll be gone with the setting sun.
You'll be gone with another one.
Don't try and hold your breath
while she takes what's left,
and spreads her leg for your friends
and their friends and their friends.

You say "Man been leaving woman,
literally, since the day he were born.
Yeah, since the day he were born,
man been walking out the door."

She's spent, like a rubber, spent like a friend.
Spent, like the money that you won't see again,
if you stick around.
But you've got no way to tell. No CDs left to sell.
Never stood, so never fell. Now you break that witch's spell.
Why would you stick around?

You say "Man been leaving woman,
literally, since the day he were born.
Yeah, since the day he were born,
man been walking out the door."
Track Name: She's About to Lose It
She's closing the legs he's trying to part.
Been here before, but not this far.
She swore that she's had a change of heart,
but now, in the back seat of his car,

She's about to lose it.

The doctors agree, the chances are slim.
The heartbeat is weak. It's best to begin.
They want to induce one month before nine.
There was no warning, there was no time.

She's about to lose it.

Lost in a rage, they'd been fighting all night.
Couldn't help herself the moment she saw that knife.
She tried to refrain, but it was too late.
She knew what would happen. She knew in her brain.

She's about to lose it.
