Track Name: Ballad of Steve and Miguel
There's something to be seen when it's you and it's me and there isn't much time to say
Something was wrong when I found out you'd gone and there wasn't much time to play
There's something to be seen between you three when you're buried in their hands
Something was wrong and now you're gone, but I found out I looked too long
There's something to be seen when it's you and it's me and there is no one else around
Track Name: I've Dismissed You So Often You've Become Past Tense
300 miles
The earth owes you nothing
It's a place for you to die where the devil may reach your bones
We see the flowers bloom, we see the flowers pass, stones see the soil grow
The earth owes you nothing
I owe you nothing
You goddamn piece of shit
You goddamn idiot
Track Name: No Man Is An Island (Gilmore McLean)
On a Saturday I say lets conceive some friends
in the place they say all life begins and ends
Lets visit the waves with welcoming bodies
we'll let the sea take us even though we're not hotties
We'll swim out to the place where we can no longer stand
because at that point we'll leave our legs on the sand
Do you understand?
We'll sink into the waves as you sink into my lips
and an unwilling sea monster will caress my hips
Lets get out on a Saturday I say, lets get out
Track Name: Orange Truck
Orange Truck

I watched you chase the wind to the lake
and as the temperature rose
I could feel your body move through the moist summer
Your lethargic reaction was unfortunately obliged
to crush everything I had under you my tangerine bride

No one knows what time it is
no one seems to care
You're alone with your friend and us
asked me to take you some where
we all see this as fair

Your clothes now have suffused and the dew point is coming up fast
I feel your body move to the side citrus in the air
Your lethargic state of mind is closer now to mine
the reaction of doldrums and indolence with you my tangerine bride

No one knows where we go
no one seems to care
You and me and our friends make 3
or 4 if you're still here
No one knew what time it was
no one knew who cared
You asked me to take you
we all thought this was fair
chasing the wind anywhere
Track Name: Tiger Lily
Face in towards the sun
feet in the dirt
I hold tight your leaves the soil I work
Such beautiful stems and a perfect head
sewn into the grown my hori hori red

When it didn't rain and we were in the rays
I love the tiger shark like I love the tiger lily
And it's today and I wish we could play
I love the tiger lil but the tiger shark I kill

With all that is wrong that's what makes it work
all is said and done and we haven't made things worse
The soil is still brown, your leaves are still green
We can still have lunch but you are what you eat

When it didn't rain and we were in the rays
I love the tiger shark like I love the tiger lily
And it's today and I wish we could play
I love the tiger lil but the tiger shark I kill
Track Name: Whale on a Shark Hunt
Fishing in a lonely sea
maple oak and mahogany
from here to there and any where
acting like they know they didn't care

With lemons in paintings for eyes
they suspected each other were spies
they got so incredibly high
on the day they knew they would die

Fire your harpoon at will but watch out for what you kill
