Track Name: Cavalcade
Everything went wrong with you.
I'm singing the same old song into a microphone.
No one I know knows the truth.
It's all gone to smoke in a private alleyway.

It's times, at times; all the time.
There's no ear to hear my heart beat for a kiss.
Are you listening to your own?

Somewhere there's a carrot hanging over a hungry dog's head.
He won't make it to the river with rocks in his paws.
So just ignore the kettle when its scream fills your house,
Don't go bottling private steam on Sundays
While bachelors tan beachside, Mirrors flood the sidewalks;
On evening's fork some have come face to face with themselves,
And you can tell.

It's times like this time.
Romeo and Juliette should've listened to their parents.
Are you sleeping? I am still.

Everything wrong went with you.
The dew will send what the drainpipe couldn't keep downstream
From the fog, any minute now.
No one asks about you- What's left to say?

The whale is now a horny toad, harpooned at the throat.
If you're out you're in, you've done a terrible thing.
You can make all your wishes on another man's washes, but
Don't come back any minute now. Any minute now.
Any minute now. Any minute. Minute. any. Any minute now.
Track Name: A Little More Wine
What do dumb sons know about the son that figures father's got
To mother mother, who's reaching out
For reasons to make that reason rhyme, as
People do when they think they can.

A farmer fills his pig's pen with wine.
He knows come Sunday at slaughterhouse time
They won't be hurting as they otherwise might, but
Red juice can turn a ham's hoof upside-down.

We are flying ants in the kitchen near a honeycomb.
Two stale peas make good fishing when the bait is gone.

I read in the letters Grandpa sends
When Grandpa goes there'll be no men.
The fly can eat the venus fly, and we could all use
A little more wine.
Track Name: Theme
Welcome home where the skies are black;
Just make your doorway in the earth.
You've never seen such a lovely sight.
I'm gonna show you the way to the city-man's life.

If you're talking change you can count me in.
I mark my bible with a Pokemon card
Where the skies aren't black and the grass isn't brown.
Welcome home, little boy.
Track Name: Traffic Music (demo 1)
In the rearview there's a woman in a lawn-chair that ties the car together and is closer than she appears.

When it comes to that time you might be afraid.
Your mother waited for you with the ocean to her ear.

At first sight she looks like a cat from the rain
That's stayed up every night to make amends and take precaution
When she needs to, or has to, or can't move or counts sheep for too long.

She's the car on your ass that will always be with you.

When it comes to that time you might be afraid.
Your mother is waiting with the ocean to her ear.
