Track Name: Cat Scratch
cat scratch I can’t be believing it’s almost spring
cat scratch I see what you’re doing you’re just so mean

cat scratch I needed your lovin’ but you aint got no hugs
cat scratch come on over sugar I’m better than drugs

so I’m sitting quite alone
and I don’t really give a shit
if life hates me I still love it
gonna break out move on it
this sunshine’s got me up
just look at me mom, doin’ these things
can’t blame ya, get a crane yo
gonna do some heavy lifting

you can’t make love if you’re looking for trouble
but you can make trouble if you’re looking for love

I smile inside when you wear what you wanna
but I smile outside when you wear nothing at all
Track Name: Dashing Capes
somewhere in the east Edd is waking up to build an ampli
fires burning bright as Jhon sells Mega
Mandibles are smiling back at Steve
at the General ephemer
all the energy that Graham does save
stretches through the day and all night
saving energy is alright

Kevin Diamond has invited you to the event
one of the few legal ways to pull joy out of this cement
catchy tunes and the musical booze can’t make the white kids dance
it’s the legacy of the Puritans they try so hard to dash

but you can listen to the banjo if that’s the way you get down
you can listen to the tuba if you like an oom papa sound
you can listen to the Five stay alive never die die die
‘cause nostalgia clowns around
you can listen to piano
it’s electrical I know, but eccentric is dyno
might get your mind blown

sewing a song out of fabric made for dashing capes
if you just would put it on you’d get laid like Wonder Woman
gets laid all the time she’s a busy woman fighting crime

Kevin Diamond has invited you to the event
but you are in Midtown so you suck
Pow and Wow will be there and Greg and Duck will be there
and all together let’s be fair
they’re gonna make you wanna move your shoes

Kevin Diamond has invited you to the event
if you can’t make it out my friend there’s nothing I can do about it
played the scene for years without it
and I’m not gonna cry about it

just us and our dashing capes
playing shows to anyone who takes
a liking to the sound
Track Name: Juan Carlos
Juan Carlos Diego walks with his guitarra to the Broadway Station
and he talks to the man in the parking lot about the problems with the US nation

Gladys has kids with a man she met after years of typing fast on the internet
now, she sits inside of the Laundromat counting quarters by a brand new TV set

everybody

the streets are paved with gold in America

Brewer’s heels tip tap on the marble floor as she walks through the halls of the Capitol
If we say we don’t discriminate then we don’t so shut your mouth.

everybody
Track Name: Big
it’s my party and I’ll die if I want to
gonna put it in my body if it makes me feel right
sorry babe I’m leaving you can cry if you want to
but it’s just a waste of saline all over your face

I don’t sit in traffic I sail over your head
even if it’s only in my mind
at my backdoor there’s a crack whore with Ebenezer Scrooge
my celebrity couple ‘cause the gossip is good

(but) sun up again I’m home again
slip on into bed kiss your face and say
hey babe I’m your man, model American
hard working hard loving, I’m gonna take a stand

well I’m piling up the winnings but I’m belting out the blues
don’t eat from my basket ‘cause it’s designed to lose
it’s my lobby and I’ll try if I want to
slam on the gas if the brake is no good

you can’t turn us in ‘cause our head’s too big to jail
but we can’t stop loving money ‘cause our heart’s too big to fail
who wants to fail? I don’t want to fail

when the sun comes up again I’m home again
slip on into bed kiss your face and say
hey babe I’m your man, model American
hard working hard loving, I’m gonna take a stand
Track Name: Too Late
it’s too late, I’ve already been thinking of you
and leaving my life behind
I’m shootin’ farther than Cupid, I feel so stupid
falling for you

but I hear the whispers of your soul and they’re right
it’s softer than love in the middle of the night
they tell me the story of all your life
and how I should spend the rest with you

don’t speak now, the air melts with our love
it’s unfair to ask of it to flow over our lips
I can see now all of the poetry that is growing
in the sun of your smile

I hear the whispers of your soul and they’re right
it’s softer than love in the middle of the night
they tell me the story of all your life
and how I should spend the rest with you
Track Name: Julie
Julie last Tuesday put down her Newsday
and said Oh my, in the middle of the night
they brought it home sweet home on the range
is lookin’ pretty strange, I know
but that’s the way it seems to go

Penny last Wednesday put in her last day of work
she’s going way up to Montreal
she vote for Hope but now she’s packing
don’t forget your coat, it’s cold
but then again aren’t we all

someone’s knocking at her door
to tell her body open up
you think that’s better than before?

even Heidi by Friday turned off the nightly lampoon
too soon, to feel like living underground
she wants to laugh and love and sing
but how when nothing’s funny to sing about?

little Sunny had one day to rest up for Monday
and pray for rain that never came you know they held her down
Remember, right? We taught you how to breathe you’ll be alright

she went higher and higher

someone’s knocking at your door
to tell your body open up
you think that’s better than before?
Track Name: Maybe I Know
if you want into my room you had better bring a broom
so you can sweep it out

if you want into my heart, there’s no better place to start
it’s slow, but believe you me

baby I know baby I don’t maybe I don’t maybe I don’t know

can’t just take me on these pricey dates
buy me fancy carbohydrates
you got to take the long way

if you want into my heart
pull too hard, you’ll tear it
oh it’s slow, but believe you me

baby I know baby I don’t maybe I don’t maybe I don’t know
Track Name: Photographic Pictures
girl, I’m gonna make a man outta you
mama don’t say what you said to me that day

you can keep me in your photographic pictures
while I’ll be standing in your long line of Mr.’s

girl, I’m gonna make a man outta you
(it’s a longer road than you will know my friend)
(I will travel down it for you just the same)
mama don’t say what you said to me that day

cold turned the hot hot air
blonde is the color of hair

you can keep me in your photographic pictures while
I’ll be standing in your long line of Mr.’s

Lauren where you going, where you going, where do you go?

You take my love when you go and though I never let it show
You take my love all alone
And now you’re walking down the stairs
And now you’re walking out the door
Baby tell me where you go

you can keep me in your photographic pictures while
I’ll be standing in your long line of Mr.’s
Track Name: Telling Lies
I don’t know why you’re telling lies
You know they don’t make me feel good, no
But since your heart is made of ice
I guess you never break a sweat

And if I’m Magellan you know it ain't in my shoes
But if I’m McClellan you know it’s just my job to lose

Cause it’s a heart stop rip-off hear stop rip-off oh

I don’t know why you’re telling lies
You know they won’t make you feel good no
But since your heart is made of stone
Don’t let it roll a roll away

And if I’m your hankie you know I hate to see you cry
But if I’m Bernanke you know I wouldn’t pay no mind

Cause it’s a heart stop rip-off heart stop rip-off oh
Track Name: Sallies
Maybe in the summer time/
It’s a sham so come on and get with it
Make ya feel fine na na na…

Sally wants to be with other Sallies I know
But Sally wants to be with no other
Thomas wasn’t modest like some Sallies I know
But Thomas wants to be with no other

31 like flavors lie and cheat
31 like flavors they all make me sick
Seein’ bodies out of City Hall
California is a messy car
Maybe Maine should buy a New York Times
‘Cause, Iowa, you’re the friendly kind.

Sally wants to be with other Sallies I know
But Sally wants to be with no other
And, Thomas wasn’t modest like some Sallies I know
But Thomas wants to be with no other
Love is love is love is love la la la, love is love is love

Sit down girl but don’t get comfort’
I got some time so I can make you suffer
Maybe there’s somethin’ to this Bible-thumpin’
Seems like money is that type of somethin’
It will be better when it’s warmer weather
Unless it’s hot, then I’ll reconsider.
(backing: they got the money, but I got the time
they break the bread but I break the wine)


Maybe in the summer time, I’ll take your hand
And you’ll be mine…
