Track Name: Dollar Swines
1.Dollar Swines:

I know there's cash in the mattress
I’m gonna burn it tonight
I've had my fill of semantics
time now for fight or flight

she’s got her hooks in the heart meat

knows she can tear it apart
and he's got his hand in the pocket
so they're all getting what they want
(ha hah)

Manikin walk with a stilt leg
woman can stand on her head
coins come clanking on hard wood
into the piggy bank under the bed

She’s got a right to save up
She’s gonna burn it instead
manikin walk with a stilt leg
into the piggy bank under the bed

A little money and a lie that we can buy
that is all
it’s all we have to live for

Saving up for some castle in the sky
that is all
well it’s all we've ever had

Got a piece of mail this evening
you never would believe what it said
daddy left me all of his fortune
daddy's fortune’s all in his head

Barely made it into your twenties
dollars never made any sense
daddy left me all of his fortune
daddy's fortune’s all but spent

A little money and a lie that we can buy
that is all
it’s all we have to live for

Saving up for some big shiny thing
well that is all...

GO!

I don't wanna find
that I'm a Dollar Swine
crooked tail and hooves from hell
and a taste for the poison wine
I said, “my god!”

A little money and lie that we can buy
that is all.... yeah!
Track Name: Baby In A Tree
2. Baby In A Tree:

Lately I've been feeling
Ill at ease
Ill at ease
I'm a baby
In a tree
Don't look at me

My skin
covers me
but deep inside
what you can't see
I keep it hid
especially
from birds of pray
who want to feed

and when you go far out on a limb
well then you'll see

Lately I've been moving
to and fro
with the breeze
there's so much wind
blowing through my tree
I'm a baby
lay hands on me

Where’ve all my friends gone
where could they be
where could they be

Deep down in my soul
deep deep down
deeper still
I have no idea when the branch will give
good lord

and I’ve been waiting so long
to be found
find me now

and you can leave me
just a baby in a tree

Lately I’ve been feeling
all this pain in my back
from all the knives you say relax
well i can't do that
If i stop to take a breath
I might choke
choke to death
I’m a baby in a tree
the air is thin around me
where’ve all my friends gone
where could they be
where could they be

Deep down in my soul
deep deep down deeper still
I have no idea when the branch will give
good lord
and I’ve been waiting so long
to be found
find me now
and you can leave me just a baby in a tree

Dig me a hole
a bed for my roots to grow
dig it deep and dig it slow

deep down in my soul
I've been waiting so long

So if you say it’s the end for me
understand for me that’d be fine
you see
because we all know the branch gives some day
good lord
Track Name: Barely Aware
3. Barely Aware

I woke up and my dream was alive
But dying
It was dark it was still it was calm
It took a moment to think
Why I ever started
Another moment to put my clothes on

I tried to sing but the song
Was a little broken
It was here it was there it was wrong
Took a moment to be who I thought
Was talking
Another moment to put the face on

All the ins and outs and how
Am I supposed to know?
When to give of myself
And when to close the door?

Sometimes I want to just walk through the door
And holler
Kick a table and pull someone’s hair
Get arrested and call someone
To get a dollar
Get released and start all over again

I am NOT a free man
Don’t put that on me
I was born in prison
Trapped in this body

I woke up in a dream
There was skin growing all over me
There were ships sinking into the sea
Consumed by the industry
But I can’t seem to get you to care
It’s the truth but you’re barely aware
Yeah you’re cute
But in your heart
You’re scared
That’s the truth and you’re barely aware

This is your first day
First hour anyway
What happens from here is a choice
A push
A pull
A stone’s throw away

I woke up in a dream
There was skin growing all over me
There were ships sinking into the sea
Controlled by the industry
But I can’t seem to get you to care
It’s the truth but we’re barely aware
Yeah we’re cute
But in our hearts we’re scared
That’s the truth but we’re barely aware

And I just wanna get you to care
It’s the truth and you’re already there
Every soul has a cross to bear
That’s the truth and we’re already there
