Track Name: Hot Buttered Rum
to beat all the cold I've got a drink that moves from the hips
she's sweet, she's hot
and if I ever tasted better I was dreaming about hot buttered rum

to get out of bed we all need something to slip down inside
past my lips, but my kiss isn't coming from you, girl
I was dreaming about that sweet hot buttery rum

1/2 cup of hot water
2 oz of spiced rum
1/2 tsp butter
1 tsp brown sugar
Track Name: Crystal Salmon, Crystal Salmon
slip slowly, carrier pigeon
jangle on, jangle
across the sea
oooohhhh, crystal salmon, crystal salmon
so elegant and true
ooooooohhhh, shimmer down to the slipway so brown
where you once jangled so gently.
ooooooohhhhhhhhh, so elegant and true
crystal salmon, crystal salmon.
Track Name: Cajun Meltdown
I woke up from a long dream
that day everything changed for me
no bottle could hide my shame
it almost took my life away

I'd be lying if I
said I didn't think about
the ways I could die
some things I just can't live without

the days go so long right now
withdrawal symptoms in every hour
rejection is only worse
when you don't recognize your worth
Track Name: A Skeleton To Wear
I wanna give you a skeleton to wear
a beter skeleton that you won't have
to put up inside your closet for a year
I wanna give you a skeleton to wear
I was tryin' hard to make her mine
and I was tryin' hard to grow a spine
but I just haven't got the time
to wait for a real love.
I wanna give you a skeleton to wear
wou won't have no criss cross eyes
or a woman you despise
I wanna give you a skeleton to wear
I was tryin' hard to make her mine
and I was tryin' hard to grow a spine
but I just haven't got the time
to wait for a real love
wait for a real love
wait for a real love
wait for a real love
Track Name: Mosquitoes To A Light
I came for you in the summer
I came for you when I was pretendin' to be lost in a giant fountain
you smiled with a soup spoon
and pretended I was found

I see snakes in your hair
that I should avoid
but honey drips from my lips for you
and it's an all too familiar taste
I see double
mannequin girl
when your daddy ain't around
you have your cake and you eat it
but you don't kiss on the lips
your blowin' smoke
in the mirror you hold
but still I would take that walk on coals
just to smell each step
measured in burns
like mosquitoes to a light

I can't wait to have you there in the
silken summer black tar with squirrel nut sound
when your daddy ain't around
you have your cake and you eat it
but you don't kiss on the lips
when your daddy ain't around.
Track Name: Invasion
every day is linin' up
pretendin' not to notice me
word becomes enemy
time becomes cigarette
word becomes enemy
time becomes cigarette
"even keel glass violin" whispers in my ear
and you're always there
implanting the same moment
I never knew that you played violin

I feel that somethin' strange
is happenin' to us
I feel that somethin' strange
is happenin' to us
invasion
invasion
invasion
invasion
Track Name: The Influencing Machine
somewhere in red shadows and velvet
dentists upon doctors sit in circles and I felt it
in a room I never seen
the influencing machine
the influencing machine
the influencing machine
I don't want no pictures on my wall
i don't want no skulls cracklin' in my hall
I don't want no ghosts in my wall
I can feel the cranks cracklin'
and the shinin' gears shiftin'
and I don't understand what they mean
the influencing machine
the influencing machine
the influencing machine
the influencing machine
x ray magnetism polar logic windowpane
and I been blue in the face tryin' to explain
the influencing mosaic vegetable fuck face machine
the influencing machine
I don't want no pictures on my wall
i don't want no skulls cracklin' in my hall
I don't want no ghosts in my wall
I can feel the cranks cracklin'
and the shinin' gears shiftin'
and I don't understand what they mean
the influencing machine
the influencing machine
the influencing machine
the influencing machine
Track Name: Two Hundred Million Years Ago
They spend their whole lives
cutting a pipeline
to the place where the
black cataclysms flow
they figured it out
two hundred million years ago
they figured it out
two hundred million years ago
they figured it out
two hundred million years ago
[oil is the liquid dead
oil is the liquid dead]
I spent my whole life
cuttin' a hook line
the fish get bigger
the deeper you go
they figured it out
two hundred million years ago
they figured it out
two hundred million years ago
they figured it out
two hundred million years ago
[oil is the liquid dead
oil is the liquid dead]
you can spend your whole life
cutting a pipeline
to the place where
the black cataclysms flow
they figured it out
two hundred million years ago
they figured it out
two hundred million years ago
Track Name: Organic Roll Call Eyes
I cut my sail and rigged the sundial
expensive prints stuck to a light pole
I cut my sail all along the plot line
it was marked with sweat
and organic roll call eyes
you are living with one foot in
you had nothing to begin with
Track Name: Shrinkwrapped Silhouettes
you dream of all these childish things
when we meet again I'll be someone different

I'm cutting close to a bitter end
and I'm running out of skin so thin
waking up just to start all over again

looking beyond the cotton screen
I see leather cheeks that do no grinning
