Track Name: You Get What You Pay For
they say you get what you pay for
ain’t that the truth?
you little kids don’t know what to do
with all my warnings your religion is love, oh love
say kids there’s a hobby that’s going around
gather your pennies and move uptown
i’m talking vice above conviction but both
if you’re not smart
so cheer up baby, I want you to
get it up baby, i want you to move
i’ll be your lean­ on­ me girl, lean­ on­ me girl, girl
i’ll be your lean­ on­ me girl, lean­ on­ me girl, girl
if you wanna be happy the rest of your life
don’t make a california woman your wife
she doesn’t know any better
it’s the way she was raised
forget about courtship or being polite
just call a sure thing in the weekly tonight
leave all your money on the table and come
but get out of there
Track Name: A Sad One
i called all you folks here today
to wipe my brow and clear my name
i learned all about the rules of love
from the god of the sky and the devil up above
what’s it like in a young girl’s heart?
well, it’s easy to carry her - so easy to start
i walked a mile in my young girl’s shoes
i caught the bug and the cocksucker’s blues
it’s hard to tell
or find a parallel at all
the path to love
is a sad one
well, all in all I’m still getting up
from hiding my heart and taking that stuff
well, i’d marry a man if he looked at me right
so what are you doing for the rest of your life?
it’s hard to tell
or find a parallel at all
the path to love
is a sad one
Track Name: Summer Again
blazing with the roof off
cocoa puffs and eye drops
laughing with our eyes on the skies
boss moves with the treble
bouncing on the devil
with his fingers in between my things
declared himself a baptist
me? I’m just an actress
kneeling down wherever he goes
and when he’d hit the ceiling
it’d always send me reeling
to a feeling i can’t feel anymore
‘cause that bummer in the summer
took all autumn to recover
winter springs me into summer again...
again... again...
i can’t take another summer, again
daddy was a brief fuse
stress and other issues
i thought that i just made him mad
so any time he’d bother I’d pass on other offers
apologizing to the back of his hand
i knew he kept it crooked
but what he said I took it
instant commas after this word and that
oh bracing for the truth though
i always was reduced to
a little girl curled up in his lap
‘cause that bummer in the summer
took all autumn to recover
winter springs me into summer again...
again... again...
i can’t take another summer, again
Track Name: Cocaine Kids
lily’s got a line on that paper chase
running after something she can’t replace
sweet 15 ­ had it mapped out right
cocaine kids make you smile all night
lily’s got a line on that paper chase
and my short stuff’s got it all grown up
and she talks a lot but she walks it off
and my short stuff’s got it all grown up, for real
lily’s hung up off the way we act
running after something she can’t get back
messed around until she got her look
high, high heels but I think she’s shook
lily’s hung up off the way we act
and my short stuff’s got it all grown up
and she talks a lot but she walks it off
and my short stuff’s got it all grown up, for real
lily’s got a line on that paper chase
running after something she can’t replace
sweet 15 ­ had it mapped out right
cocaine kids make you smile all night
lily’s got a line on that paper chase
Track Name: Boys in the Band
i can’t thank you enough
retractions, interactions, and all that stuff
it’s been reflected and it’s been fine
can start to get this off my mind
now the stakes are low
reminded of this every place we go
they’re rolling out the new fall line
needless to say it’s just in time
then the boys in the band came by
we had another show
we went for three in a row
lined up my X’s and O’s
you only know what you know
so, only know what you know
you can’t believe a thing
that you might hear or see from me
it’s either new or it’s revised
can’t see yourself with the right disguise
then the boys in the band came by
yet another show
we went for three in a row
lined up my X’s and O’s
you only know what you know
so, only know what you know
you know...do you know?
Track Name: Bad Beat
soon as you love me, oh you gotta go
soon as you’re gone, i’m gonna need you to come back home
careless, thoughtless, now i’m childless and blue
that ain’t much for you to come home to
one more weight for you to put on your side
one more teardrop where your others have dried
woeful, sorrowful, now i’m pitchin’ a fit
that pretty much takes care of it
oh baby, you got me on a real bad beat
yeah baby, you got me on a real bad beat
i was fine on my own
shook what you’d shown
learned what you’ve known
oh I was carrying on
hoping for a call
for carrying on...
oh baby, you got me on a real bad beat
yeah baby, you got me on a real bad beat
i was fine on my own
shook what you’d shown
learned what you’ve known
oh I was carrying on
hoping for a call
for carrying on...
Track Name: Song of Songs
it warmed me to find you alone
and paralyzed
with every girl that you know
ooh, it shows...
five years later on, you’re tying your own shoes
i’m carrying a terrible tale
lord, I’ve been cruel to you
ooh, me too
my conscience has set me back a ways
i’m not real conscious these days
some time spent worrying about your face
your face
what a waste
my conscience has set me back a ways
i’m not real conscious these days
some time spent worrying about your face
your face
what a waste
this song of songs and this boast of boasts
that I’ve been glorified
via the heaviest ghost
ooh, it shows...
Track Name: J---s Loved the Hell Out of Me
shot out of a cannon at birth
live show, it was barely rehearsed
i know now that you had it worse
baby
so things aren’t what they seem
hold on you ain’t seen anything
held on to a mutual dream
baby
looking for an easy way out
i finally found it
it was tied to a gracious host
no doubt about it
i see
j---s loved the hell out of me
devil’s in the details
no need to relive it
have a year or so to go before I will give in
it’s free
j---s loved the hell out of me
love, pardon me my righteous state
but you settled for a huge mistake
now nothing else will fit on your plate
baby
ordering up the minimum waves
child steps towards an early grave
and it’s easy to say that you’re saved
baby
looking for an easy way out
i finally found it
it was tied to a gracious heart
It’s obvious
baby
j---s loved the hell out of me
well the devil’s in the details
always will relive it
had a year or so dead and gone before he stepped in
it’s free
j---s loved the hell out of me
Track Name: White Flight
got a fund for the negroes in college
cuban boy on a raft? we got him
but I don’t know how i’ll feed my kids
waiting on a chance arrival
but you know I’m barely surviving at all
and it is what it is
oh yeah, there’s power in the numbers
this and that, these and those
wanna see you soon baby
there’s a chance we’ll start all over
and I heard it all before... and I heard it all before...
he’s the hope that lights our hours
with a brilliant flame that devoured your heart
don’t assume he’ll carry you
dancing slow with the rock of ages
some erotic thrust that starts and stops
don’t assume he’ll carry you
oh yeah, there’s power in the numbers, this and that, his and hers
wanna see you soon baby
there’s a chance we’ll start all over
and I heard it all before and that’s why and I heard it all before and that’s why
let’s build a dream that can last
can't build a dream that can last
Track Name: Such a Strong
when your father was a boy
he was much like you and i
he saw things that made him sad
and pretend like he never did
and it’s all i do
to make sense of what you’re going through
i react the way i do
well i don’t know
and you say you’ll never let me
i know you won’t forget me
don’t say that you regret me, you don’t
hate is such a strong word
it’s what i heard
and it’s a strong word
when i heard about your “friend”
it set me back on my rear end
so i did some things that i regret
but there ain’t nothing i can do about that
and it’s all i do
to make sense of what you’re going through
i react the way i do, well i don’t know
and you say you’ll never let me
i know you won’t forget me
don’t say that you regret me, you don’t
hate is such a strong word
it’s what i heard
and it’s a strong word
Track Name: Run Rev Run
who’s gonna break the news to baby
that daddy’s heart ain’t got no strings
i’ve been lowered by love
so I know when you’ve had enough and it shows
from your hair down to your nose
no, reverend, no
who’s gonna break the news to sweetheart
that papa’s lock ain’t got no key
well, I’ve been sobered by love
so I know when you’ve had enough and it’s gone
from your lips down to your tongue
run, reverend, run
Track Name: Happens All the Time
i was a chord in your song
one chord i didn’t get wrong
i was a chord
i was a line in your sound
fucked up and flipped it around
i went home
but i never had the chance to tell ya
it happens all the time
these mistakes are mine
and it happens all the time
you did your tour de force
In the middle of august
i’m still cold
i’ve got a song in my heart
tone deaf and humming along
but I never had the chance to tell ya
it happens all the time
these mistakes are mine
and it happens all the time
