  1. “Don’t Make Me a Target” 3:55LYRICS
    Here come a man from the star
    We don’t know why he goes so far
    And keep on marching along
    Beating his drum

    Clubs and sticks and bats and balls
    For nuclear dicks with their dialect drawls
    That come from a parking lot town
    Where nothing lives in the sun

    Don’t make me a target

    When he reach back in his mind
    Feels like he’s breaking the law
    There’s something back there he got
    That nobody knows

    He never claimed to say what he says
    He smells like the inside of closets upstairs
    The kind where nobody goes

  2. “The Ghost of You Lingers” 3:34LYRICS
    If you were here would you calm me down or settle the score
    The feelings I fight burn so bright
    I’m a stranger in town
    But if you were here would you ease my mind
    The sleep fled from my eyes
    And I know that I need some
    Oh would you calm me down
    When the breath gets shallow and fast
    We put on a clinic
    If you were here would you calm me down or settle the score
    It felt good to me
    Can’t you see I’m losing it
    Must I set up the scene
    Put on a clinic but now I need you right
    Would you ease my mind
    The ghost of you lingers
    It lingers
    Put on a clinic til we hit the wall
    Just like a sailor with his wounds being salted
    I had a nightmare nothing could be put back together
    Would you settle the score
    Or would you calm me down
    If you were here would you calm me down
    The ghost of you lingers
    It lingers and I sleep a bit
  3. “You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb” 3:08LYRICS
    Life can be so fair, let it go on and on
    I got loose for good and you got that cherry bomb
    Blow out that cherry bomb for me
    We lost it long ago, you and me

    Now you know your way back from the spirit farm
    Brush your teeth for bed, blow out that cherry bomb
    Blow out that cherry bomb for me
    You’ve got to know it’s on your sleeve

    It was the longest day that I’ve ever known
    I watched you start that drive alone
    Blow out that cherry bomb for me
    It’s gonna burn right up your sleeve

    Oh so there you go again out in your dressing gown
    Get yourself to bed, blow out that cherry bomb
    Life can be so fair, let it go on and on
    I got paid and my hand on your cherry bomb

  4. “Don’t You Evah” 3:36LYRICS
    Bet you got it all planned right
    Bet you never worry never even feel a fright
    Bet you got it all planned right
    Never think to worry never even feel a fright
    Single sleeps alone and I know you don’t really mind
    Five years by your side so I know you really don’t mind
     
    But don’t you ever be down
    I said don’t ever
    Because it’s gonna keep em hangin around
    Never be down
    I said don’t ever
    Because it’s gonna keep em hangin around
     
    Bet you never think it’s right
    Bet you think you have to but it doesn’t feel right
    Bet you never think it feels right
    Famous sounding words make your head feel light
     
    Petals getting picked with the love-yous and the love-you-nots
    Five years going by everyone is staying on their side
     
    But don’t you never be down
    I said don’t ever
    Because it gonna keep em hangin around
    Never be down
    I said don’t ever
    Because it’s gonna keep em hangin around
  5. “Rhthm & Soul” 3:30LYRICS
    Come loosen up
    So hung up
    Come count them ways to forever
    Remember the winter gets cold in ways you always forget

    Ah you know
    Mm-a RHYTHM AND SOUL
    Gets your hands out your back pockets
    Boy let it go
    Here comes the man you saw in Kazan
    He just fixing his coat
    Rhythm and soul

    Dollars and cents ain’t no accident
    Not in the name of democracy
    Come get there
    Come be there
    Come let your socks fall down to your shoes

    And you know rhythm and soul
    Gets your ankles moving their sockets
    There you go
    Here comes the man
    He followed you from Kazan
    He can’t leave it alone
    Ah no, rhythm and soul

    When you take a picture and it falls in your lap
    Take another picture and you’re springing the trap
    You’ve been sold

    You can’t bat this with your eye
    Change your tie and get wise
    Rhythm and

    Tract houses
    Square couches
    Short legs and square shoulders
    Pot holders
    Egg and soldiers
    Y’ tank rollers
    You all know this

    Yeah you know
    Oooh the rhythm and soul
    Get your fingers moving their sockets, tune in Tokyo
    You’re just the man
    The one I saw in Kazan
    One of us went for the throat
    RHYTHM AND

  6. “Eddie’s Ragga” 3:39LYRICS
    EDDIE’S RAGGA
    Someone that I met but I hardly knew
    He said that everyone loves a defective heart
    He’d parted ways with diction, this was late last night
    He see me getting your affection and it proved he was right
    The way I stared off thinking that all was sound
    Anyone I knew they woulda called me found
    You can break my legs, you can kick me downstairs
    But there ain’t no getting over Joanie Hale-Maier
    Just let me walk away
    Ah let me walk away
    And then the place ignite
    It’s in my face and I’m
    Behind the bassline

    Someone that I knew but I hardly met
    Told me, It’s hopeless I’m a slut for the New York Times
    She made my heart soft, wore an aiguillette on her arm
    She never been to Texas, never heard of King Kong
    And it’d been so long since I’d been suitably high
    So we did an Airborne, settled in for the night
    Tell me sweetness don’t somehow reach your heart
    Until you fall flat down and you can’t wait to start
    This is the one cold truth we’ve all of us known
    As I think to myself this could be easy or I could face it alone
    And then the place ignite
    All out of grace and I’m
    Behind the base line

  7. “The Underdog” 3:42LYRICS
    Picture yourself in a living room
    Your pipe and slippers set out for you
    I know you think that it ain’t too far
    But I hear a call of a lifetime ring
    Felt the need to get up for it
    And cut out the middle man
    Get free from the middle man

    You got no time for the messenger
    Got no regard for the thing that you don’t understand
    You got no fear of the underdog
    That’s why you will not survive

    I wanna forget how convention fits
    But can I get out from under it
    Can I cut it out of me
    It can’t all be wedding cake
    It can’t all be boiled away
    I try but I can’t let go of it
    Can’t let go of it, nuh uh

    Cause you don’t talk to the waterboy
    And there’s so much you could learn but you don’t want to know
    You will not back up an inch ever
    That’s why you will not survive

    The thing that I tell you now
    It may not go over well
    It may not be photo op
    The way that I spell it out

    But you won’t hear from the messenger
    Don’t wanna know ‘bout some thing that you don’t understand
    You got no fear of the underdog
    That’s why you will not survive

  8. “My Little Japanese Cigarette Case” 3:03LYRICS
    It’s just my Japanese cigarette case
    Bring a mirror to my face
    Let all my memories be gone
  9. “Finer Feelings” 4:54LYRICS
    Memphis comes creeping down my back
    Somehow this place taste just like an attack
    A hundred-yard-stare of a kiss
    Lord, I know I’ll never miss it
    They told me stop scouting the field
    They told me have a look in Commercial Appeal
    And start getting that hair cut sharp

    Sometimes I think that I’ll find a love
    One that’s gonna change my heart
    I’ll find it in Commercial Appeal
    And then this heartache’ll get chased away

    I was part-time at the Tasty Prawn
    That and moving furniture and cutting lawns
    Covered in newsprint, staying up real late
    Just holding out for some fate

    I was dreaming in the driver’s seat
    When the right words just came to me
    And all my finer feelings came up
    Always out on some witch’s hunt
    For the one who never lets me want
    Before you know it it’s all fuss

  10. “Black Like Me”LYRICS
    I’m in need of someone to take care of me tonight
    As I walk into Dorian’s can you see it in my eyes
    My boots are on the mend and they ain’t walking home
    Street tar and summer do a job on your sole
    Street tar and summer do a job on your sole

    Jenny’s watching Cover Shot
    My head’s feeling light
    I’m in need of someone take care of me tonight
    Anyhow, anyway, so I split
    Like just getting out of there is gonna get me out of this
    I spent the night in the map room
    I humanized the vacuum

    I’m in need of someone to take care of me tonight
    And as I’m looking out at you can you see that in my eyes
    On the mend, now they could lead me home
    Street tar and summer, they play a trick on your soul

    Oh Jenny’s gone day and night
    Ah it makes me feel so light
    Just somebody to care tonight
    Jenny’s watchin day and night
    Ah my head’s still feelin light
    Someone to take care tonight
    All the weird kids up front
    Tell me what you know you want
    Someone to take care tonight
