Track Name: Keep Talking
He wants us to do our research, trapping the zombie flies in the jar. Waiting for the screech owls to swoop down and drag your dogs away, so far away...keep talking. Keep talking. I'm trying hard to listen. Keep talking. Keep talking. I'm trying hard to stay awake. Laying in the sunny day, standing outside reading funny papers, and waiting for the phone to ring. I am gazing through the glass, laying down on the sidewalk, wishing for another dream. Keep talking. Keep talking. I trying hard to listen. Keep Talking. Keep talking. I'm trying so hard to stay awake. Mister, if you want to know exactly what I'm doing go away. Must you interrupt me? I was floating down a river in the rain! Lazy, lazy on the beach. Something you've never seen, but you're still hoping for. I win. I win almost every day. I'm grateful for the nice things they say when they're passing me on the street.
Track Name: In Red, Sir
Your problems, your germs, mistakes, wrong turns don't scare me. I'm here. I've run with a few who claimed to be like me. their intentions were never that clear, so far as could see. There are ten, then twelve, and suddenly just three. So you see, I'm standing right here. I don't even know what it is that want from me, dear! Late in the morning, I break in the evening and I walk to him. And they smile as they drive on by, and you pass on through me..."If you see something that you like, grab on tight, boy." You don't want one. You want three, and you want 'em in red, sir. So you see, I'm going with you. I don't even know where it is that you're taking me to. I don't care. I'm living the dream. (They march so slowly that my hands are getting cold. Give me direction because they're so unreliable).
Track Name: McKanick
Slaps his own face in the mirror, "Wonderin' how I got so little done in such a long time." Such a long time. Saw that girl with the diamond ring. Is that what she wanted from the very beginning? Before she went blue? Take her away. Going down. Away. Going way down. Hang a whistle around your neck, and walk through the sunshine like you own the place that was always yours. Thought I saw you just the other day, working some scam for fifty bucks a day. Away, always so far away. Away, here we go again. I've heard this story so many times before, so just tell me again. That's how much I dig it. I know what you're about to say. you say it every day. So say it. That's you how you play it, and again, away. Take me far away. Away, I know how this will go. This will go, will go, this will go away....
Track Name: 47%
A little walk in the rain, past the carnival. I got fifty cents left to my name. I'm gonna make the most of it. And there's a redhead beauty selling balloons. I'll wait another half hour, but it comes too soon....Gonna whisper sweet nothings to the bank man. They'll own the house in about a year, then give it away. And you work so hard now, for the past thirty years, and this is what they give you, more fear...."I'm gonna buy a second home in the south of Spain". Those are words that I'll never say. Not gonna lose again. Because my money's no good here. So I'll go somewhere else. I never want it so easy. I hope you're doing well....Don't sell your soul now, or give it away. That's what they've been telling us since 1988. You're not worth a dime here, so give it away. And then there's always a sacrifice for all our days. For those who don't care, for those who don't know we're there....
