Track Name: Sad About an Ice Age
sad about an ice age

sunrise, exploding colors
seaside, skipping stones
backyard, picking berries
sticky sapp hands from a pine tree

in an ice age, you can forget it
when it's all gone, you will regret it
historys most expensive trash can
we'll be dead but
it's too bad for someone else

newport and hyannis
flying kites and playing tennis
a cold drink of water when you're hot in the summer
things like that are there when you need them

in an ice age, you can forget it
when it's all gone, you will regret it
historys most expensive trash can
we'll be dead
but it'll be too bad for someone else

history's most expensive trashcan
we'll be dead
but it's sad to think about
and it's real scary

green grass fresh air and oceans
best enjoy them, 'cos no one's seen heaven
Track Name: Hug Me Drug Me
hug me drug me

part my lips
kiss goodbye the infection
powder up my complexion
take my heart for a run around

taxi window
thumbing through my address book
touching all those familiar numbers
tip and stumble into the street

hug me, drug me
my sweet IV
hug me, honey, ‘til you drug me
help me get high

spill out on the dance floor
place is teeming with assholes
text someone I really don’t know
hold out hope for some relief

no more questions
‘cause it takes so long to say goodnight

hug me, drug me
my sweet IV
hug me, honey, ‘til you drug me
help me get high

taxi window
thumbing through my address book
touching all those familiar numbers
never say goodnight

hug me, drug me
my sweet IV
hug me, honey, ‘til you drug me
help me get high
Track Name: Almond Eyes
almond eyes

lately you have been thinking lots
think so much that you just fall asleep
recurring dreams of how you fucked up
wake up fogged and sleepwalk through the day

looking back, you should have settled down
her almond eyes are now all that you want

at a bar on a monday night
crushing beers like you were seventeen
saw her sitting there by herself
looking good at a table set for two

a bird flew by as you walked out the door
you saw a streelight shine and buzz and burn out in front of a drugstore

lately you have been thinking lots
think so much that you just fall asleep
the dreaming stops and a nightmare starts:
a lonly guy in his seventies

a colossal dread
a twin bed and a dog
a t.v. meal
and the sense that all hope is lost
her almond eyes are now all that you want
Track Name: Canary in a Coal Mine
canary in a coal mine

how long is there a great wide open
how high should I be feeling
warm sun splitting my head wide open
cool wind feels like an ocean

sweetheart, met in a school play backstage
snuck away to kiss between sets
new car, sped off to sink in love’s start
but sun shined in and made me forget

it keeps coming back to me, oh please
so keep coming back to me, oh please
keep coming back to me
hopefully I’ll wait and see
you’re still coming back to me

drove fast, spotted your face as I passed
one last look became a few days
smoke rings, a haze of familiar feelings
but wind blew in and swept me away

it keeps coming back to me, oh please
so keep coming back to me, oh please
keep coming back to me
hopefully I’ll wait and see
you’re still coming back to me

canary in a coal mine
hamster on a wheel
rat in a cage
I better act my age
and give into what’s real

canary in a coal mine
with nothing left to feel
when everything I gave
is all that I became
a kid without a name
a never ending game

so keep coming back to me, oh please
keep coming back to me
hopefully I’ll wait and see
you’re still coming back to me
