Track Name: Chips Before Dinner
only one half of my brain seems to work when i dont want it to
and you know the compromise we all make, only for the family's sake

and you cry
then you wipe your eyes and smile
and you love, your sons
tell them they're the only ones

chips before dinner
conversation was never thinner
while property value grows
down by the river
where our dead dog would go
every winter
man, she was such a winner
Track Name: Lovers In The Fog
found it in the bay, water soaked clay
held it in my hand til it slipped away
lovers in the fog, hands cupping a frog
its quiet til its gone, til its gone

we can't remain the same, we fall in line so leisurely
my feet keep track of time, ever so fleetingly

as we turn to stone, spider webs adorn
a caldron filled with chrome, filled with chrome
to reflect the stars, pinned behind our ears
to lift us from this earth, from our fears

i draw the yankee blood from my heart
i curse the tides of change like a witches free for all
we were once lovers hanging in the fog
with candy, capes, and party streamers like the leaves in fall
Track Name: Party Instead
i wait around for my friends
to begin supper proceedings
cuz it wouldnt be an event
without everyone from the circle present

i want to party
with you
not just any party
instead
i often party
with regret
will we make it through the weekend?
Track Name: Items I Love
when i asked to move away, to open spaces
it didnt make sense, just to get away from
the parallels to 90s television
the one with that hit song
feigning hope that all your friends move on

all the items i love
become totems of
reclusivity

your cartoons were overdubbed in spanish
but the bond was the same, we feared the day they would vanish
where do they go? our dead cartoon heroes?
the ones that made us clear of
the fleetingness, the ones we miss, the ones that move on
Track Name: U Rock, U Rule
you know, you cant,
cant ignore the things that bring you joy anymore
cuz you are now entering the time

where u rock and u rule
and youre satisfied
with the static tide of loneliness
that pervades everywhere you go

spring rain brings spring pain
and it brings the onslaught
the slaughter of our good time

when you go, ill leave
to convey our upward trajectory
to a world that holds it close to heart

and theyll say, why dont you
stay and rock, stay and rock a little more
but sadness is sweet when we want more

spring rain brings spring pain
and it brings the onslaught
the slaughter of our good time

spring rain brings spring pain
and it hurts, just like
the voice of your least favorite singer of all time
Track Name: Neil
it won't take long again
like the summer on the lawn i spent
waiting for the ambulance
i've got those neil young blues again

and everything fades
it won't take long, it won't take long

we drove to wallingford
made a joke about where we were
and all along the corridor
winter could have been kinder

and he played
our favorite song, our favorite tune
cowgirl in the sand
Track Name: We Were an American Band
trying to keep this wave on the shore
when you leave we will all know more
about the times we were down

i hope you listen to our songs
we made in our basement
and wait for the meter to change
cuz it would be boring if we stayed the same

we would all go by different names
so we could join in the game
we played, en route to rite aide
to get some brews
