Track Name: Subway Tracks
Let's start a revolution
Once we take away their guns
Let's grow a pair of balls, boys

The only resolution
Is to kill off all the violent ones
And pin their hides to the walls

Look out! for the bar stool huggers
Yeah, look out for the bar stool huggers

I think a lot ***** ****
And I think a lot about you
I'm supposed to write shit down
Because my therapist tells me to

I'm careful rounding corners
I don't bother anyone
When I don't get a message from the chick I like
I wonder what I've done

Look out! for the bar stool hugger
Yeah, look out for the train track chugger

Remember when you left me
Stranded on the subway tracks
I think I caught a fever
Standing on the subway tracks

She calls him Romeo
He hurts her arm in bed
He has to ask permission
To remind her what she said

Nothing to make up
Nothing worth erasing
Just another faceless evening's got me
Pacing, pacing, pacing

Look out! for the bar stool hugger
Yeah, look out for the train track chugger

Remember when you left me
Stranded on the subway tracks?
I think I caught a fever
Standing on the subway tracks

The first time that you kiss me,
Kiss me on the subway tracks
I think I caught a fever
Standing on the subway tracks

Look out!

Look out!

LOOK OUT!
Track Name: Late
I ate my dinner
I cleaned my plate
I finished everything, but I
Started too late
Uh huh
Started too late

I made the movie
Oh, what a twist!
I bought you all kinds of crap, but you
Still got pissed
That I showed up late

Nothing decent to wear in my closet
And you know that it's a faux pas
For me to look good when you look great

I'll never lie to you
It sounds dumb, but it's true and that's why I was
Late

If we were children
I'd build a fort
I'd protect from the teacher and the
Book report
Afraid I'd come up short

I kicked his ass (yeah!)
His ass got kicked
I rescued you from getting raped, but you
Still got ticked
And said that I had come up
Short

Too many flowers and not enough roses on your birthday
The Edible Arrangements were my last resort

You used to say I was great
But now I'm little more than late
And a little bit
Short

Couple minutes late, few inches short.....
Track Name: Elizabeth Browning
Leave me here with the shadows
And your ear pressed against my door
Thine Eros is nigh, there’s no need to pry anymore
Leave me to my bonds
The love-thief ever-absconding
C’est notre vie

Leave me here with the monsters
In the silence of the dark
A sharp clasping knife, a life to a life and the lark
Won’t come back around
Darkness knows no bound
So I bid thee

Leave me alone again,
Elizabeth Browning
Leave me alone again,
Leave me alone again,
Elizabeth Browning,
Drop your tears in the waters where I’m drowning,
Elizabeth Browning

Death turns me to Leander,
So meet me at Sestos hight
Lip unto lip, Hero en-gripped through the night
Day-heat wilts the skin
I’ll quench thee from within
Ne’er to bid thee

Leave me alone again,
Elizabeth Browning
Leave me alone again,
Leave me alone again,
Elizabeth Browning,
Drop your tears in the waters where I’m drowning,
Elizabeth Browning
