Track Name: Filed Teeth
Stolen kiss in a car | But there’s no love there | Hesitant September air | We should go into the bar | And I know it’s not fair | But I’m the reason we’re here | Gonna take, take, take | Just a little bit more | Gonna give, give, give | Cause I know what this is for | But I reap what I sow | I won’t pretend I didn’t know | Your preference for a lady in white | Dinner’s at six | The table’s been set | An empty chair | For an ever missing guest | We covered her eyes | Don’t act so surprised | She don’t ask anymore | Blood lust yeah, I trained you for this | Your razored teeth and a tuxedo vest | But that young girl, they’re gonna put it in print | But God knows yeah | It don’t get’s better than this | If you got the rhythm, then I got rhyme | And an act of passion is hardly a crime | But I reap what I sow | I won’t pretend I didn’t know | And they’re revving to go | So, on with the show
Track Name: 4th of July
You don’t talk back | I gotta hand on your mouth | You like the last laugh | Yeah I figured you out | You go ah ah ah ah | You got a drink in your hand | You gotta pretty wife | I know the things that you did | I like the last laugh | Yeah I figured you out | I go ah ah ah ah | When I found you | I wrote your name on my wall | I built the tallest towers | Cause I know you like to watch them fall down | When I found you | Someone to watch over me | I heard your voice and | It’s like a shot in the dark | You broke the window | You’re drawing lines on the floor | You go ah ah ah ah | You’ve got Firework eyes | Humming melodies, spitting prophetic lies | You say hey May | It’s the fourth of July | I go ah ah ah ah | All those little birds | Flew home and said | The king of summer | He’s black and blue in your bed | You’re gonna come when I call | Someone to watch over me | When I found you
I wrote your name on my wall | I built the tallest towers | Cause I know you like to watch them fall down | Someone to watch over me
Track Name: Hummingbird
When she’s mad she talks with her hands | hummingbird girl won’t rest with me | When she’s mad she talks with her hands | Hummingbird girl won’t rest with me | Just wanna catch your smile | Just wanna catch your smile | Your mouth hangs like sheets on a line | Don’t care girl long as you're mine | Need grace under pressure, pressure | Need grace under pressure, pressure | Need grace under pressure, pressure | You get so hot, you get so hot | I don’t care if you’re a Jackie O oh oh | I don’t care if you’re a Marilyn Monroe oh oh | I don’t care if you’re a Jackie O oh oh | I don’t care if you’re a Marilyn Monroe oh oh | Just wanna catch your smile | Just wanna catch your smile | Your mouth hangs like sheets on a line | Don’t care girl long as you're mine | Need grace under pressure, pressure | Need grace under pressure, pressure | Need grace under pressure, pressure | You get so hot, you get so hot | Hummingbird needs space to be | Blank page and evergreen | Deep blue and honeycomb | Come here now, where you belong | Whoa whoa, whoa whoa
Track Name: Little Lolita
He’s looking rather pious | Stiff collar sallow skin | Muttering versus, sputtering curses | Sweat dripping down his neck | I go oh uh oh oh uh oh oh oh | He’s got his nose pressed to the glass | Little girls tugging skirt hems, holding hands | They go oh uh oh, oh uh oh oh oh | He calls me little Lolita | A born again believer | When he stops I go | When I hush he’ll know | He says don’t even try it | put your hands in your lap | and I’m pretty as a picture, neat as a pin | No more oh uh oh, oh uh oh oh oh | He's got a strong grip and a righteous hand | He calls me little Lolita | A born again believer | When he stops I go | When I hush he’ll know | He makes a pass at a waitress | She leaves a lipstick stain on the glass | Pretty as a picture, neat as a pin | Does he call her little Lolita?
Track Name: Fox in the Hunt
You don’t touch | No hands on me | You don’t touch | No hands on me | You’re just a suit in my hand | You’re just a suit in my hand | Until I lay you down, and play what I got | There’s no rest for me | The wicked they come | There’s no rest for me | The fox in the hunt | The monster on the table | All covered with cords and cables | You flipped the switch to my machine | Gave me the power I need |
You’re just a suit in my hand | You’re just a suit in my hand | Until I lay you down, and play what I got | There’s no rest for me | The wicked they come | There’s no rest for me | The fox in the hunt | They all fall a little bit in love with bright lights and warm nights | They all fall a little bit in love with white doves and satin gloves | I am a fighter starter | I am the one who made you | Fall from grace | I am winning the race | Fall a little bit in love | With warm nights | And bright lights | Fall a little bit in love
