Track Name: Mended All Made Clean
What you feel's what you're feelin
you dont have to have any reason
why-why-why-why should you be
so-so-so-so-
maligned for your inflection?
when you're in touch with rejection?
and there's no span of your attention

You always try to slip through the cracks
and break my back yea mamma don't ya?

I'm mended all made clean
I'm mended all made clean

why should you tread so lightly?
trade in your life for some money
how-how-how-how can you be
so-so-so-so-
contrived and so defective?
when you're the mother of inventions?
givin' your time for a pension


You always try to slip through the cracks
and break my back yea mamma don't ya?

I'm mended all made clean
I'm mended all made clean

..

I'm mended all made clean
I'm mended all made clean
I'm mended all made clean
Track Name: Hollow Man
He's nobody's baby
but he's somebody's child
he never knew his daddy
mamma said "you got his smile"

feel it in his fingers
feel it in his toes
it hurts to be somebody
nobody knows
he's a hollow man

he's got some wounds to mend

he's puttin up his walls
they give him what it takes to be alone
but there ain't no life nowhere
when you're shackled to your home

feel it in his fingers
feel it in his toes
it hurts to be somebody
nobody knows
he's a hollow man

he's got some wounds to mend

..

and ain't it strange the way he sees?
when life is as full as you feel it ought to be
Track Name: One of These Days
Yea your mind can feel so blurry
When it’s thinkin all day long
Them lights’ll flash and bleed
and tell you what you want
Yeah, they got a hold on you
So tight you can barely breathe
They already got you, baby
One of these Ddys
They gonna get me

Then they get their pockets lined
Makin rivers black and dry
till the thirst goes blue to red
cuttin off your brothers’ heads
Yeah, they got a hold on you
So dry with none to drink
They already got you, baby
One of these days
They gonna get me

You see beggars at the gate
Ragged clothes and dusty hate
While nobody got the time
To see the reason why

Yeah, they got a hold on you
So tight you can hardly see
They already got you, baby
One of these days
They gonna get me
Track Name: Acute Mountain Sickness Blues
Strung out
strung out on a mountain
it's doin my head in

my feet
they are tied to its peak

don't wanna float away now
when you're in my veins now
uh huh
uh huh
uh huh

..

we all fall
but I don't wanna feel as I fall
and I don't wanna feel at all

give me
oh, give me sympathy

cause I'm feelin pain now
like I'm goin insane now
uh huh
uh huh
uh huh
Track Name: Honeytrap
I watch you mourn another day
until you find yourself the sweetest taste
it attracts
you're like a fly to a honeytrap

you wash it out and down the drain
if you found a hole inside your brain
it attracts
you're like a fly to a honeytrap

it lays you down there to waste
a bed under stars of malaise
asleep on subway grates the night
fades away

you bleed it out of all your veins
if you found yourself a sharper blade
it attracts
you're like a fly to a honeytrap

it digs and buries you away
I hope they find the place of your remains,
it's a trap
and a fly don't know where it's at

it lays you down there to waste
a bed under stars of malaise
asleep on subway grates the night
fades away

..

it lays you down there to waste
a bed under stars of malaise
asleep on subway grates the night
fades away
Track Name: My Heroin Pretends
Sewers overflow into the streets
Flowers of the city struggle to find
Life through the cracks of the concrete
And she’s got
4 kids she can’t feed
For years we been tryin to get clean
For years we been tryin to pick up the pieces
Of our broken lives

Little by little and crumb by crumb
Cant be this hard for everyone
But soon you and me will be happy
soon you and me will be happy
soon you and me will be happy
My heroin pretends

Baby’s cryin’ for his mother’s breast
But momma’s out sellin her body on the corner
Of 8th and somerset cause she needs
4 bags every day
For years it’s been goin this way
For years we have been like slaves
Stuck in the tar pits of kensigton

Little by little and suddenly
Now we are what you see
But soon you and me will be happy
soon you and me will be happy
soon you and me will be happy
My heroin pretends
Track Name: Well Enough Alone
Take the time to ask yourself why
you can't be satisfied
I know your scheme she says: you're not foolin me

you shoulda left

well enough alone
well enough alone
well enough alone
some people can't leave

well enough alone
well enough alone
well enough alone
some people can't leave

the word's all around our crowd now
this fool is certified
I know your scheme she says, and you're losing me

you shoulda left

well enough alone
well enough alone
well enough alone
some people can't leave

well enough alone
well enough alone
well enough alone
some people can't leave

..

well enough alone
well enough alone
well enough alone
some people can't leave

well enough alone
well enough alone
well enough alone
some people can't leave
Track Name: Jennifer, My Plastic Girl
Jennifer, my plastic girl
I know how it feels

when you are fakin and everyone
thinks you're real

oh every day in every way
you're changin like a shiftin gear

and who's to say who you will be
when tomorrow's here?

oh, jennifer

my plastic girl

jennifer, my plastic girl

..

jennifer, my plastic girl
you must stay away

from the younger ones
who hang on every word you say

and while beauty is nice
there's more to life than what meets the eye

just look inside yourself
who knows just what you'll find?

oh, jennifer

my plastic girl

jennifer, my plastic girl
Track Name: The Shrinking Violet's Light
I'm afraid of what I'm worth
am I gold or am I dirt?
the world outside, it bleeds me dry
like a flame upon the earth

white light between the dark
a radiant cosmic spark
and a restless mind, it kills the time
when you play the hangman's part

evening spreads you thin
white light shines so dim
to waste is to sin
let me scatter with the wind

enough I've had to see
in vision and in dreams
though much I know, I can't let go
of the world surrounding me

I'm afraid of what I'm worth
am I gold or am I dirt?
the world outside, it bleeds me dry
and I'm afraid of what I'm worth
Track Name: These Canyons
We’re nobody’s only
but we’re somebody’s best
a company a-stirring
from our head to our chest

we’re nobody’s cart horse
and there’s no puppeteer
It hurts to be somebody
that nobody hears

a penny for your thoughts
a nickel for your hands
two dimes to keep the time
and a dollar take a stand

the river carves us slowly
so would you keep us around?
we’ll use our hearts and hands
to fill these canyons with the sounds

...of the hollow men

we’re the hollow men
we’re the hollow men
we’re the hollow men
we’re the hollow men
we’re the hollow men
we’re the hollow men
we’re the hollow men
