Track Name: Cryin Elvis
No use cryin over gettin what you wished for
You pushed him away
Here’s a bag for yr stuff scattered over the floor
Throw your toothbrush away

You don’t sleep here anymore

Late november cool on yr wet hot face out by the trash
Take a moment, indulge it. Then you gotta get back.
Motions become yr focus. Allergies why yr eyes are red.
Flip the sign to close so you can make it home where you can finally think about it

Everybody’s assumin you made the boy cry. .
Nobody’s askin if yr alright. So you don’t talk about it.

Let’s not forget the first time he said it.
Shot it like a weapon.
Before heading down a break-your-neck hill when ya tried to end it.

I watched the trees out your window lose its leaves
I was surprised to see snow
You changed the way you said my name.
I watched the green buds grow.

In times like these it’s best to have a strategy.
Forgive me if I’m selective with my memories.
Track Name: Legs of an Eagle
Hardware holdin you all together is creakin from the weather
Loose screws, bone spurs, metal rods, and burnt nerves
after 3 decades your friends skipped out
just cuz you slow em down

cut ya open found corrosion
replace the bone with odds and ends
materials to make strong buildings
but will they make strong men?

take half the dose with bravado

on the phone: "it's fine"
you forget to mention:
collapsed lung, the hospitalization
"didn't wanna bring ya down"
"it's an old story by now, I didn't wanna bum ya out"

just cut it off - the old joke comes back
just cut it off
the cure - not as good for a laugh
just cut it off

I guess no news is good news
just let it go
you're better off without it
just let it go
Track Name: Erie
you fell asleep on the shores of Erie
turned half of your body bright, warm red
your hair was short so your skull looked funny
nothin to do but laugh

teenagers volleyboppin back n forth throwin mean looks to ya in yr jean shorts
we're sore sights for young eyes
i tried to see what they see but all i could think was
"can't know nothin bout somebody in two weeks"

I try to remind myself that I know how to have a good time
Go slow, you've got friends on this long short road
what ya runnin for?

there's them, but i only like us
don't stop tellin me to lighten up
Track Name: Feel Clean
if i can't be clean, can i live unrestrained?
can the sky open up to show me how?
let loose some well held clouds and drench me now

but if i can't be clean, can we take away the shame?
can the fog of guilt be blown away?
can i feel awake and sane?

but if i can't be clean, can i not be thrown away?
can i feel my weight against the earth?
can i feel my weight as worth?

in the morning light i survey all my parts
in the morning light i decide

not to wash clean
