Track Name: Kitchen Song
Destiny's got a new trick.
She turned herself into a wick.
She's over there lighting her nipples on fire
and all the boys think it's the shit.
And they won't take your stuff at Goodwill.
And they're locking up all of the dumpsters.
I think I'll just leave it all out in the car and
park it downtown for the Mission Street vultures.

Come and go, come and go.
All the cool boys come and go.
Don't nail your shoes to the kitchen floor for long.

My hair smells just like an ashtray.
And there's seventeen coats on the bed where I slept.
And you crept away and I don't care where you are.
But I'll remember how you got there.

Here and there, here and there.
All the boys go here and there.
Don't tie yourself to the kitchen chair for long.
Track Name: BMW
You drove off in your black BMW
The cops came and asked me questions "What's going on?"
I told them it was a record, I told them
For my birthday you went to get me something
Just for me.
Track Name: Afterglow
All I saw was the back of your head
In a blue Chevrolet Cavalier
Heading east out of town, out of nowhere
Came the thought I had loved you all along
With a big, happy face pasted on

As an afterthought
Like for instance
For example

All I see is the back of a hand
Rubberband where the ring used to be
In the lane next to mine heading east
Is the girl you had hoped I could be

Like for instance
For example
Like for instance.
Track Name: Dandelion
Dandelion take a tire iron
To my skull and render me null
Dandy flower, comes an hour
When nobody cares so you cash in your shares

When the wind comes to carry you far away
Hold your head, don't you leave me for dead
'Til my ashes have scattered, hold sway.
Track Name: Flying Colors
There's that girl on her green banana seat low-rider picking up speed on F Street.
Chopper handle bars, cherry under glass she's so rid of you, rid of you, rid of you, as she rides right past you

High as flying colors.

Polly she used to be so Ultralash now she's Maybelline, Maybelline, Maybelline and she looks right through you.
But supersonic girls, bright as flaming jets
Curl into a ball like a sowbug gets

High as flying colors.
Track Name: Cabernet
If you made a meal of me
I'd taste like brie and cabernet sauvignon.
I'm setting the table for two
I'm getting a large plate for you
I'm letting the dinner go cold
If I made a meal of you
I'd swallow you whole
And if you made a meal of me
I'd taste like brie and cabernet sauvignon.
Track Name: Barbiewhore
If it's good for you
Would you fight the bed you made and
What's in worth to you?
Why don't you just walk away from her

Babydoll barbiewhore
Honeycomb kindercore
Silicone candystore

And leaving is so hard to do
Cuz I've got eyes inside my shoes
And they keep me inside the yard
Every time I try you get

All up in there with your saccharine stare
Master slave, it's not fair, it's not fair

Babydoll barbiewhore
Honoeycomb kindercore
Silicone candy
Track Name: Spades
Into the wind
Close-hauled again
That was a close call

And hearts are for sleeves
And fair weather seas
Hearts come in homes and Casiotones
And kisses on your knees.

But love comes in spades and coal miner shades
It rarely behaves like your dreams
But no worries, Boo. I'll come to you
I'm not as sad as I seem.
Track Name: Bunny Ears
He left a little package on the window sill
It didn't look like much
Just a little innocent parcel

She thought that it was
A pair of bunny ears she ordered from the
Fingerhut catalog
But it went kaboom in her face.
Track Name: Laces
Cars fly by. Kids in some. Making faces all in fun.
Cranberry. Cinnamon. You come here to come undone.
Crazy girl. I become. Make like laces all undone.
Track Name: Twenty Four
I just called to let you know how hard it is
Not to call you every time I think about all of this

Twenty four hours a minute
Twenty four hours a minute

And I know you're seeing someone else
'Cuz I found her number in your drawer
And I'm just here to make you understand that I had to come

Hold you for only a minute
Hold you for only a minute

And I just called to let you know how hard I try
Not to call and not to say
I think about you every day
