Hate Song

Don't look around at the scenery today
'Cuz you probably won't understand it
Don't settle down in a permanent way
'Cuz you haven't the right to demand it

I'm writing you a hate song
I don't want to have to hold your hand
I'm writing you a hate song
And I'm hoping that you'll understand

Let it be said that it hasn't been said
When there wasn't the will to unearth it
Relive the germs to awaken the worms
Just to ask them if it's worth it
So let's get one thing straight:
The halls have narrowed, leaving aphids in the marrow...

So you say so
And I say what
And the difference ain't worth debating
I never wanted the mud in the face
But I couldn't have known what was waiting


Broken Record

Sunny day at the oasis
As the roasted take their places
And the undertaker mumbles
"You're screwing it wrong..."

Like a broken record
Sir Repetitious:
What a beauty to be needled
The new posistions looking fetal
So take a letter, sayonaro
We're putting you on...

WHAT'S GOING AHN

Grant Hart

I can't cry, I can't apply a word to sum it up
Under stress I can't repress the moment it erupts
Hear the sound of paper drums and shredded paper voice
Got to turn up 'Keep Hanging On' as if I had a choice
Prairie fires and pitchfork choirs inspire as they create
Turn it up, It's too far down, until we can relate
Minnesota new day rising first day in the store
Take the couch at someones's house and wait around to score

Nervous children making millions: you owe it all to them
Power trios with big-ass deals: you opened for them
I can see it all with my one good eye
For a start take to Grant Harts & call me when you die


Ontario

When I told you what you wanted to know
You said, "Take me to Ontario"
When I showed you what you wanted to see
You said, "The flower that you planted in me has gone dry"
Big birds flying overhead, who gives a shit?

When I showed you what I wanted to build
And all the enemies would never be killed
There'll be a saint living under the stairs
So we'll be free of material cares
Black paint on the walls in summer, it's cool, it's cool

I wanna go, I wanna go -- to Ontario

When I asked you, "Why Ontario?"
You said, "It sounds good on the radio"

Black birds flying overhead, waiting for somebody to die


OCEANIC EXPLORATION

Start A Life

I don't know why
I even try to be simple
When all I find
Is everything complicated

When I left home
I found the holes in my pockets
My parents smiled
They didn't know I was frightened

Try to start a life
Try to make a point
Try to start a life, it's harder than you think

As I shoved off
I took a good look behind me
My tether gone
A greater binding awaiting

Try to start a life
Try to make a point
Try to start a life, it's harder than you think
Try to start a life
Try to make a point
Try to start a life
Thought I heard the shot
But I cannot tell
Think that I can run
But I cannot tell
Wish I had it made
But I cannot tell what I do not know

Still I press on
Into the ground I am keeping
With any luck
I hope to make an arrangement

Try to start a life
Try to make a point
Try to start a life, it's harder than you think
Try to start a life
Try to make a point
Try to start a life, it's harder than you think
Try to start a life
Try to start a life
Try to start a life
Try to start a life


Flavor of the Month

Can you hear it?-like an invitation
Can you feel it?-it's a revelation
(chorus)
The flavor of the month is busy melting in your mouth
Getting easier to swallow and harder to spit out
Can you hear it?-does the sound remind you?
Can you feel it?-it's gonna redefine you
(chorus)
Can you hear it?-like an invitation
Can you feel it?-a reverberation
(chorus)


Solar Sister

I'll call you sister Carrie but I'll never say it
Mute it to a whisper
And spin your solar sister
And magnet will deliver
An arrow from her quiver
I'll call you sister carrie but you'll never hear it
Fifty limits later
As time pulls down her fader
And nibbles off the fakers
Who roll under the breakers
I'll close my eyes and listen to you read the story
Knowning I'll soon be left behind
So won't you read sister carrie jean sister carrie
Always the patient one
I'll call you sister carrie I won't breathe a word
The frosting on the beater
The flag trips down the meter
You thought you could defeat her
You're lucky you could meet her
I'll close my eyes and listen to you read the story
But I'm already far behind
So won't you read sister carrie jean sister carrie
Always the patient one
I'll close my life and let you teach me a new story
Out of the pages of your mind
And magnet will deliver
So, spin, my solar sister
And you can read, sister carrie, read...


GOLDEN BLUNDERS

Golden blunders come in pairs, they're very unaware
What they know is what they've seen
Education wasn't fun, but now that school is done
Higher learning's just begun
(Chorus)
You're gonna watch what you say for a long time
You're gonna suffer the guilt forever
You're gonna get in the way at the wrong time
You're gonna mess up things you thought you would never
Disappointment breeds contempt, it make you feel inept
Never thought you'd feel alone (at home)
His and hers forever more, throw your freedom out of the door
Before you find out what it's for
(Chorus)
Four weeks seemed like a long time then - but nine months is longer now
But even if you never speak again - you've already made the wedding vow
(Chorus)
Honeymoons will never start, bonds will blow apart
Just as fast as they were made
Men and women please beware : don't pretend you care
Nothing lasts when nothing's there
(Repeat Chorus)


SUDDENLY MARY

Suddenly Mary fell in the water
Were not I weary I would have caught her
I watched for a moment and scrambled in after
Words of disownment were drowned out with laughter
I awoke from a peaceful sleep and found my clothes under the table
Aesop used to make me weep but now I'm part of Mary's fable
Suddenly Mary fell in the water
I found myself married to somebody's daughter
"Loving," she told me
"Is a question of bravery"
But when she started to hold me
It was closer to slavery
I got up for a bite to eat and found my clothes inside the icebox
I used to stand on my own to feet but now I sit when my new wife talks
Suddenly Mary fell in the water
She floated away with the ring that I bought her
She had convinced me that I was a failure
I burned all my clothing and found a new tailor
Suddenly Mary (repeat) Suddenly Mary's fine (repeat)
