Track Name: for animals
when you feel like you've done everything
seen all there is to see
don't fret my love
you still haven't met me

don't sell your bicycle
give away your keys
don't move away
down to the crescent city

i haven't seen
anything at all
as bright as you are
let em see
play these chords
let em ring
oh there's something to see

blame it all on ever-present love

oh when you feel like you've seen all there is
underneath the sun in this town baby do not run
i'm still waiting on my bicycle
sitting on my bike out on your lawn

blame it on ever-prison love
Track Name: forever babe
lost my cool in memphis just waiting on a train
gust of wind blew off my hat in the freezing rain
won't do you no good to whisper or to scream in vain
the future's over
this is forever
with my forever babe
this is forever
this is forever babe
this is forever
you're my forever, babe
this is forever...

any word i say to you it'll be a lie
i just wanna rake you, wanna break your mind
gonna tell you lies, not a grain of truth
gonna pull you down, gonna drown you
in forever, my forever babe
drown forever babe
this is forever my forever babe

so you never thought i'd take it this far
but it's all been false, yes it's been a lie
i brought you down, now all that's left is just to drown
in forever, in my forever babe
...
Track Name: little rebellion
angela, why do you walk away from me, angela
angela, why don't you say a prayer for me, angela

beauty queen you don't even care for me, angela
no no no no no no
angela, why don't you say a prayer for me

angela...
Track Name: mountain time
you keep the time in an old candy sack
you take some out but you can't put it back
man your bag is full
there's no closing the flap
but what you take out you'll never put back
old hallelujah
spending my time
you wanna go (colorado)
sing high
sleep tight
you're gonna go to colorado in your mind
you're gonna fly through the night
blue blue sleep tight
it's just time
time time time time time time
say goodbye
Track Name: sister
(good dogs, i like you both lots)

i start to write it before i change my thinking cap
i'd stay to tell you that i'm leaving with the welcome mat
i had a good time but you tied me to that apple cart
so now i'm running from a bunch of sick and broken hearts

i wrote a letter to my sister up in illinois
i said 'i miss you but i sure as hell don't miss the noise
my small apartment has turned into a mansion, dear
i'm unemployed but i'll never be baptized in fear
so take this letter as a sign of better times' arrival
i'm sick of running from the infants thumping broken bibles
and now i'm going off the top of my head, girl
cause i love you and i wish i could give you the world

slow down, won't you,
sit down, won't you,
oh, you gotta know
that i'm thinking of you,
that i'm loving you'

(something resembling…paper)

'and always tell em that you've got another root beer,
and if you don't you'll have before your last meal
don't ever edit the truth within your nervous system
and if you can you gotta cut back on the television
it gets so weird when the words get attached to sounds
what once was nice is getting really preachy now
but sister listen what i have to sing is all of love
i said above it just ain't what you were thinking of
always tell em you got another pocketbook
and if you don't you will before your last crook
don't ever edit the truth within your nervous system
and if you can see if you can sing it with em'
Track Name: sprout
aye aye aye
run run
you got to free yourself
gotta get away
your dreams are calling
i know a way
gotta get out
find your dream beneath a rock
and what you do you take a ride you take a walk
Track Name: the new kick
i got a new kinda kick
it makes my grandparents sick
they threw me out on the bricks
they turned around on their sticks

i got a new kinda kick
it makes my grandparents sick
they threw me out on the bricks
they threw me out on the bricks

now i'm walking around on my own
and i'm trying to decide what to do when i get home

i got a new kind of kick
i got a new kind of kick

they threw me out on the bricks
they turned around on their sticks
i got a new kinda kick
i need a new kinda kick to believe you

through this night i'll be alone
i got a new kinda kick

i got a new kinda kick
it makes my grandparents sick
they threw me out on the bricks
they turned around on the sticks

whoa ah

they'll never know they were born last night
i got a new kinda kick
Track Name: tiptoer
tell my friends i'm a tiptoer
since i got this girl and i had some things to show her
she went crazy and pulled my leash in
now i'm thinking that she's a policeman

i done got into a relationship
with this girlfriend who's gonna lock me up quick
cause she's got the jealous look in her eye
and she'd rather kill me than herself die

i'm a tiptoer tiptoeing all through the town
i got to tiptoe around every time i leave the house
if i wanna go out maybe into the downtown
i gotta hide my car around behind the gas station

i'm just a tiptoer
i'm just a tiptoer
