Track Name: Cat Got Your Tongue
He was 27 years old
Liked bottles of wine
Scribbled thoughts in a notepad
To pass the time
Crackin' underneath the pressure
At the blue factory
Figured he could pick up a guitar
And set himself free

So he found himself a woman
Sweet blonde with a place
Said "Hey, honey, wouldn't it be nice
If I came here to stay?"
She was just a little naive
Thought fond of his eyes
Ready and willing to believe
Another comfortable lie

Cat got your tongue and you're runnin' low on luck today

So they're livin' in the city
He's a musical man
Strugglin' to make it with a melody
That the people don't demand
But she sees diamonds in his eyes
Pretends he's up on a horse
Effortlessly imagines
He's high king of the royal court

She builds a shrine in the closet
With a lock of his hair
Keeps it lit with candles
When her man isn't there
One day he sees the idol
Opens his mouth to speak
She puts her fingers on his lips
And says "Baby, don't ever leave"

Cat got your tongue and you're runnin' low on luck today

With his eyes agape
With his jaw hangin' low
He fights to get the feeling back in his feet
Steps back real slow
Says "Honey, believe me
I'm a fool for your love
But this idol-praisin', voodoo wiccan lunatic
Is far too much"

She says "Baby, I'm crazy
I should be in a home
But the cops don't got me yet
So I'm here free to roam
Should you pack your suitcase
Should you try to leave
You'll walk out that door with blood on your hands
So what's it gonna be?"

Cat got your tongue and you're runnin' low on luck today
Track Name: Amber Waves of Grime
Leave me be she said to me
There's too much on my mind
This damn city never sleeps
And I do believe it's time
To find some peace, I'll head out east
Where the rolling countryside
Meets breezy trees and windy weeds
And the world is open wide

Oh, she's leavin' me alone
Mama, tell me, when are you comin' home?

Bored and broke, filled up with smoke
Such a pretty life I lead
Lovesick here in the city of angels
And somehow I can't leave
It's taken me all of my life
To get to the jungle of concrete
And as soon as I fall for a pretty girl
She closes the door on me

Oh, she's leavin' me alone
Mama, tell me, when are you comin' home?

When are you comin' home?
Track Name: Oh God!
Oh God, don't turn away from me now
I've got a long way to go
Yes God, don't turn away from me now
I've got a long way to go

The streets are made of spirits and the wind is made of gold
Everyone and everything is slowly getting old
But I'm fine, watching the passing of time

Like a book with no beginning, a chapter with no end
We're all left to hold our breath and quietly pretend
That we're fine, watching the passing of time

Don't it make you wanna scream that nothing is as it seems?
But a crude facade, a victimless wandering bum vagabond in the night
Groping for an absent light
Smoking a tin-can pipe
Kickin' the can down the road with all his might

Oh God, don't turn away from me now
I've got a long way to go
Yes God, don't turn away from me now
I've got a long way to go

Live like a rash in the side of a gigantic elephant
Swimming slowly under the Atlantic
In mountains of lava and magnetic waves
Away from the violence in what people say and do
But what difference does it make to you?
Whether an apple is orange or blue
Merely anticipating making the next move
Dipping skyscrapers in chocolate fondue
Inside of a crater on a big, pink moon
Gyrating in a tirade under a tireless sky
Where the stars never sleep and the satellites beep
Like the flames at a concert outside
On a warm summer day where the stress and the struggle
Have been vacuumed away to the depths of a hell
Somewhere out in space
To waste in the place where the hate animates the cold face of the killer who's after you

My dear, there is nothing you can do
To beat back the hands of the clock that see the day through
Close your eyes, let the flames rise around you

Don't it make you wanna scream that nothing is as it seems?
But a crude facade, a victimless wandering bum vagabond in the night
Groping for an absent light
Smoking a tin-can pipe
Kickin' the can down the road with all his might

Oh God, don't turn away from me now
I've got a long way to go
Yes God, don't turn away from me now
I've got a long way to go
Track Name: Like a Dog Chasin' His Tail
Keep the Devil as close as I can
Keep the angels far away
Keep a four-leaf clover in my pocket
Save it for a rainy day

I count the leaves on the flowers
Watch the trees blows in the wind
Wait all day for night to fall
Then I start it all over again

Slowly going nowhere and comin' back again
Slowly going nowhere and comin' back again

Like a dog chasin' his tail

Brew another pot of coffee
Drink it down until I shake
Fumble with a cigarette
And I fill up with rage

The damn lighter's jammed and my cigarette's drenched in rain
When did everything become so colorless and plain?

Slowly going nowhere and comin' back again
Slowly going nowhere and comin' back again

Like a dog chasin' his tail
Track Name: Bury Me by the Sea
Take me away to a better place, I gotta get the hell outta dodge
I'm goin' stir crazy, losin' my mind, and all the people here have gone to rot
I ain't an old man and as I are, I'm doin' fine for the time
But another day with this bag of bones and my soul might turn to slime
Here we go

Bury me by the sea when I'm gone
Let my feet feel the waves
I'm only here so long, and lord knows I ain't strong
Bury me by the sea when I'm gone

How long, lord, oh how long can I make this sick thing stick?
I try to be nice, yeah, I try to be kind, but at the end of the day, I'm a prick
I'm trapped, yeah, baby, I'm trapped like some fat pig in a petting zoo
It might be hell, but I might as well sit back and enjoy the view
Here we go

Bury me by the sea when I'm gone
Let my feet feel the waves
I'm only here so long, and lord knows I ain't strong
Bury me by the sea when I'm gone
